It's one of those things that seems redundant; it can only be seen by its absence. Were I looking for an example to illustrate this point, I would have to include Diggers on the short list of films that perfectly articulates what it looks like when the stakes are nil. Diggers is little more than a collection of nostalgic scene studies strung together on the thinnest of dramatic pretexts. This film moves along at a snail's pace and I had to strain to stick with it. The characters aren't nearly as vital as their 70s-era clothing, and their rather humdrum lives extends all the way up to the end, a predictable conclusion in a westward-bound pickup truck. Basically, nothing really happens. Diggers appears to be a movie about moping. Why it was ever identified as a comedy is beyond me. What's funny about bored people who hate their hometown?There is a curious subplot involving a newly arrived fishing company that is slowly squeezing the local economy to death, and thus ending a way of life in Long Island, punctuated throughout with original footage from 1970s commercial television. But it all feels very much like an addendum, a clever add-on designed more to illuminate the drab existences of the diggers themselves and give off a sense of depth purely by association to the historical context. But it's really not enough. You would think the tale of four archetypal dudes (and two equally archetypal females) on the front end of a tidal wave of American corporatism that would, we now know, envelop the whole world in the coming decades might make for more compelling action and/or dialogue. But all we see is a half-hearted fist fight, and at least one cathartic instance of property destruction, is a bunch of 30-something townies languishing on boats, in bars, at the kitchen table, or on the bed of deceased parents. Dull.

It was actually not bad, which is why I gave it a favorable rating. This movie hints at a Brave New World, ala Aldous Huxley. Not as bleak as other dystopian movies and similar in story to Equilibrium, without all the graphic violence. It's quite watchable.

Jean Claude van damme soon realizes what happened when he died and us up against bad guy Dolph Lungren. Excellent film which is a must see for people from the 90s

Greg S (es) wrote: A conservative pastor's wife is possessed by an evil African spirit and turns into a blaspheming slattern. Carol Speed does well playing the split personalities of title character, but the film begs the question: since it's such a blatant rip-off of "The Exorcist" with a mostly black cast and co-stars William "Blacula" Marshall, why not just title it "The Blacorsist"?
Hannah M (kr) wrote: A long production, but David Tennant is refreshingly *alive* as Hamlet. I've seen Shakespeare's lines droned, intoned, solemnly recited, or campy and over-the-top, but Tennant is wonderful in this role. The rest of the cast is adequate - Patrick Stewart is an acceptably treacherous Claudius, and Penny Downie is a wonderful Gertrude. Mariah Gale as Ophelia is by far the weakest of the actors, but she really has very little to do with the play, and it's well worth the watch to see Tennant's take on a very old character. Nicely done.
