It is New Year's weekend and the friends of Peter (Fry) gather at his newly inherited country house. Ten years ago, they all acted together in a Cambridge University student comedy troupe, but it's less clear how much they have in common now.Peter's friends are Andrew (Branagh), now a writer in Hollywood; married jingle writers Roger (Laurie) and Mary (Staunton); glamorous costume designer Sarah (Emmanuel); and eccentric Maggie (Thompson), who works in publishing. Cast in sharp relief to the university chums are Carol (Rudner), the American TV star wife of Andrew; and loutish Brian (Slattery), Sarah's very recently acquired lover. Law plays Peter's disapproving housekeeper, Vera; and Lowe, her son Paul. Briers appears in a cameo role as Peter's father.
Six former college friends, with two new friends, gather for a New Years Eve weekend reunion at a large English countryside manor after ten years to reminisce about the good times now long gone. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Metropia approaches the topic of isolation through technology and the manipulation of advertisements more boldly than most. An under-appreciated film.
Gimly M (fr) wrote: 2001 Maniacs may not have been a masterpiece. It was sloppy, cheap, below-average acting at best, a hackneyed premise, and all together just not that enthralling. But it was twice the film Field of Screams could ever be! It is the superior in every concievable way.Well. All but one. Field of Screams did have the fine addition of Ogre (Above - Repo! The Genetic Opera and The Devil's Carnival) as "Doctor" Harper Alexander. He was enjoyed thoroughly. Everything else though! Throw it out! Go! Be gone! No more of you!Bill Mosely is a personal favourite, and has been since I first saw him play Chop-Top over a decade ago. He's far from new to the horror game, having had roles in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, The Devil's Carnival, The Devil's Tomb, Repo! The Genetic Opera, House, Halloween, Werewolf Women of the SS (Grindhouse Teaser), Carnivale, House of 1,000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects, Army of Darkness, Night of the Living Dead (1990), Silent Night Deadly Night III, The Blob, Freddy's Nightmares, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Alone in the Dark II, The Alphabet Killer, Evil Bong, Blood Run, Corpse Killer and Evil Ed, as well as many more, and a great looking future in the industry ahead.He replaces Robert Englund as Mayor George W. Buckman. But despite my praises for Bill, in 2001 Maniacs, he simply does not cut it. The biggest, and honestly most unforgivable thing that they fucked the character with was not the fact that they decided to change characters, but the fact that his mother fucking eyepatch changed from his left to his right eye for no fucking reason! Seriously! In 2001 Maniacs, Englund's injured eye is his left, in Field of Screams, Mosely's injured eye is his right. 'The fuck...It was from the point about five seconds in when you first see this monumental cock up that I decided Field of Screams was probably not gonna be for me. It went downhill from there. Though the last film may have that cooky-so-bad-it's-good element every now and again, Field of Screams is just regular bad. Bad, bad, bad. I've physically seen worse movies in my day, but I try to avoid the likes of those.20%-Gimly

Cynthia S (ag) wrote: This is, by far, my favorite historical subject. Just when I thought that I have seen it all, and learned it all, another view of that horrific time comes to light. It's appalling to believe that the world stood still while millions of Jews were being sent to death camps. It's even more apalling (and blows my mind) that so many COULD have tried to stop it, but didn't due to political reasons and more. Although this film shows how the Catholic Church refused to stand up to Hitler, it also shows how a few were willing to die for the sake of humanity...including an actual SS Officer. Don't look for flash, excitement, and gore here. This is an intense, thought provoking drama. Well done!

Christopher S (kr) wrote: The infamous drive-in cult hit turns out to be a disappointment. The car chases and action scenes - what the movie's really know for - are entertaining enough, but it's not enough to sit through a dull story with annoying characters - Susan George's obnoxious performance was especially grating.

Other humans (young teddy boys are a main danger ,for sure) they are a continous obstacle in the race for survival of the Family. Good,moral,peaceful father (R.Milland) realizes very quicky there are no other ways to survive, he's breaking his moral barriers as well: it's the jungle's law! Many high tension scenes and an excellent 50s vs 60s mood for a very nice movie.

Erik M (fr) wrote: How I Live Now is beautifully filmed and Saoirse Ronan gives another solid performance, but the film felt a little uneven and slow at times. The premise is promising enough with a love story during a future third World War. The romance, however, does not feel real enough. I'm not sure where the movie wanted to go, but by the end, How I Live Now is worth maybe a view for the great cinematography, good performances, and for being more ambitious than most of its YA counterparts.
