Horror F (us) wrote: Probably the lowest rating I've given to a movie, but you all should know why it's so low. The film is mainly about the evil baby that Tiffany gave birth to at the end of Bride, all grown up, and wants to find his parents, Chucky and Tiffany. I've stated this back in my Bride of Chucky review, I didn't like the comedic route it took, but this movie has taken an entire interstate of comedy. The cast is just stale as left out bread, except for Brad Douriff's actually excellent performance of the infamous killer doll. The animatronics aren't that bad, with one exception, the scene of Glenn running, it looks like he's moving in slow motion. Finally, there is a certain scene that I just want to erase from my brain, but that's not the worst part, it's the ending, Chucky's death, he gets Busta Rhyme'd by his son, and gets both his arms, legs, and head chopped off, and Tiffany successfully transfers her soul into Jennifer Tilly. Oh, and a sequel hook that thankfully doesn't get explained in the next movie.

Edith N (it) wrote: Basically They Raised Bad People Of course, the issue of keeping my parents together when my mother gets old won't come up. This is because my father died in 1983, so they haven't been together since I was six. However, my mother will assuredly not be living with me if her health deteriorates so that she cannot live on her own. There are two reasons for this. One is that my mother and I get along much better if we aren't living together. The other is that Mom made me promise I'd put her in a home. She is, to me, evidence that the truly loving child doesn't just have the knee-jerk response of "no parent of mine!" Mom put a lot of time and energy into taking care of Grandma when she was at the assisted living facility, and when Grandma got too sick for them to keep her, Mom worked with Grandma's doctor and went looking for a place with the ability to take care of Grandma, to give her everything she needed. Somewhere she'd be as happy as a woman slipping into dementia can be. Aunt Jane, who did take Grandma in, seemed rather more like one of the daughters in this movie once Grandma was there. By then, of course, she couldn't acknowledge that she'd been wrong! To be perfectly honest, Barkley Cooper (Victor Moore) should have had someone keeping a bit of a better eye on him in the first place. He hasn't worked in four years, and the bank manager sat him down and told him that he had six months to move out of his house; the bank was foreclosing. There were things he could have done. What he and his wife, Lucy (Beulah Bondi, who wasn't born when her character got married), did instead was invite the kids over a few days before the six months ran out to tell them. None of the kids agree to take in both parents. Lucy goes to live with one of their sons, George (Thomas Mitchell, four years younger than Bondi), and their daughter Cora (Elisabeth Risdon) agrees to take in Barkley. For the first time in fifty years, Barkley and Lucy are separated. And neither child wants to take in either parent. Lucy must share a room with her seventeen-year-old granddaughter, Rhoda (Barbara Read), and when Lucy tries to be nice to Rhoda's friends, they think she's a drag and stop coming over. Barkley makes friends with a local shopkeeper, Max Rubens (Maurice Moscovitch), but when Barkley takes sick, Cora doesn't even want to let him in the door to visit. In the end, Cora convinces herself that the best place for Barkley is California, with another of the children, and George lets himself be convinced, in part by his wife Anita (Fay Bainter), that the best place for Lucy is in a old folks' home. We're supposed to be dismayed, and in a way, I am. The children mistreat their parents. Max finds Barkley a potential job as caretaker on a farm--one presumes he wouldn't be doing the heavy farm work, that they'd have a hired man--but when Barkley gets sick, that seems to have fallen through. It's not certain that it would have had not Cora jumped on her opportunity, though. My issue, however, is that I'm not sure George and Anita are wrong. If Lucy has any friends, we don't know about them; if George has any friends other than Max, we don't know about them. It might maybe be nice if Barkley and Lucy got some friends. If they had gotten the caretaker job, they might maybe have visited with Max and his Sarah (Feike Boros), but either way, they were not well off with their children. There is a considerable chunk of the movie set during the five hours Barkley and Lucy have before he catches his train to California, which are probably the last five hours they will ever have together. Some of what happens to the pair of them is a little unbelievable, but they do have one last good memory. They go back to the hotel where they spent their honeymoon, for example, and I'm pretty sure they get treated to dinner. (This means they skip out on the one last dinner to be cooked for them for their children, but George is with them on this.) I think what we learn here is that Barkley and Lucy both are better people to deal with when they don't feel in the way. Mamie (Louise Beavers, of course), George and Anita's maid, dislikes Lucy because it means she doesn't get as many nights off, but she really is touched by Lucy's farewell to her. As the (probably) youngest son, Robert (Ray Mayer), says, they were never as uncomfortable with being bad people as they were when they found out their parents knew it, and their parents decided to let their children make do for themselves in the end. I want to believe that the ending of the movie is not the last time Barkley and Lucy see each other. I like to believe that the children see the error of their ways and find somewhere for their parents to live together. Maybe Barkley really does find work in California, that dream of so many then as now. Maybe, yes, they move into an old folks' home together. That's probably the best option. Maybe, maybe, maybe. The thing is that they don't believe it, though they each try to convince the other that they do and that it's true. I don't know how old the characters are; honestly, they probably aren't all that much older than my mother. It's hard to say, given that both actors were too young to have been married for fifty years. But it is true that it's hard for a man old enough to have been married for fifty years to find a job, especially given the class distinctions he's probably surrounded by. (Cora is awfully upset about his Jewish shopkeeper friend, for all the word "Jew" is never mentioned. But if you speak Yiddish a little, you can tell.) Their children are bad people, and I can't see wanting to live with them. Somewhere nice full of people their own age? Maybe not so bad.
ethan e (kr) wrote: There is a scene in Spielberg's film adaption of J. G. Ballard's novel, Empire of the Sun, where an imprisoned boy by the name of Jim salutes and sings the heart-piercing "Suo Gn" to three Kamikaze pilots in their pre-flight ritual. This little airplane enthusiast has no care - more specifically, he doesn't know - of the class and physical barriers that separated Japan and their captives. He respects and cares for all; everyone is equal in his innocent eyes. He salutes, befriends and surrenders to Japanese and American alike without a thought of wires or possible consequences, and everyone, even the brutal Japanese sergeant Nagata, enjoys his presence with a certain respect and adoration for him. Like the author J. G. Ballard's own experiences, Jim, or James Graham (Christian Bale's first major role that brought him into the limelight), lives in the untouched International Settlement in Shanghai before Japan invaded it, while his well-to-do parents keep him oblivious to the intense nature of the war raging outside the metal barricades of the settlement. When the Japanese do finally march in, Jim and his parents are separated by the great throngs of chaotic crowds. Jim now has to survive on his own until he runs into a strange, snobbish American, Basie, whom he persuades to protect him. The war moves on, and our characters are moved to the Soochow camp, but we don't care as it makes no difference to unenlightened Jim. Spielberg definitely succeeds in creating movies on World War II, and like any other of them, the oppressors bring down numerous beatings, though Spielberg curbed it to a PG rating, and mild language is spit out in intense, emotional scenes. Though Jim loudly proclaims his atheistic faith, his beliefs are radically different. He talks about God and what he does, possibly a touch in order to appeal to Christian viewers. Throughout the movie, the tween-aged Jim often cries "I surrender" to anyone in a uniform, hoping to gain access to his parents or a guardian through that act. But I doubt little Jim understands that phrase, because, instead of a weak, fainthearted boy, we see one with a strong constitution and standing up to oppressors and respecting all (even the dead). Even in conditions so arduous and severe, his manners and respect last through the entire war, recognized by us and an admiring Basie who says, "You've got nice manners. I appreciate that." Spielberg's powerful use of the camera and Bale's show-stopping performance emphasizes what man would do in harsh and demanding environments. On the other hand, Jim, scraping out a living through a complex network of theft and trade, lives unknowing to the motives behind the cruelties of the camp in his high world of airplanes. We follow Jim and his experiences like a close friend, but like everyone else, we can't convince him of the real dangers and truths he is ignorant of. Unlike Jurassic Park, Spielberg enhances the original material, and touches it with emotion, friendships and an inspirational story.
