DOCTOR P (kr) wrote: A Videogame movie? oh this can't end well... or does it!? A known fact among gamers and film buffs. is that videogame movies are pretty much dead on arrival. For whatever reason good stories just can't be made out of them. Videogame developer Level-5 made this film based on their characters, can they give their own character justice or will it all be ruined like so many that have tried before. The animation here is really cute and while not the most amazing, it's hard to watch without even the slightest smile. It's animated exactly like the cutscenes within the game, which will be very comforting for it's fans. As far as Japanese animated films go, it may not be in Miyazaki's standards but it will be nice to just look at an animated film from Japan that has a style different from the norm. The film's score is very similar to the game which is a lot of fun to hear whether one is a fan or not. The only problem in this is what is not from the game will sound a bit boring and more forgettable. This film still uses a good amount of the game's music to move along though, which is more than most videogame films can say. Leading the film is voice actor Christopher Robin Miller (who also voices the character in the game) as Professor Hershel Layton, an avid puzzle solver from London, who is so good he's often put in a situation where he comes off as a detective (though he claims he's not, he just is that good at solving puzzles); what's fun about the character is that he's never really fazed all that much, it's almost like his perfect(but not boring) almost like watching an animated MacGyver just a bit more fun for everyone. Sidekick Luke Triton voiced by Maria Darling (same for the games), is Layton's young "Apprentice number one" as Luke refers to himself as, learning how to be a gentleman while becoming a great puzzle solver, he is cheerful and provides relief without being a snarky kid who's to smart for the adults like most family (children) movies today try to do, it really makes him fun to watch as a sidekick. On the other end of assistants comes Emma Tate as Emmy Altava an adult heroine who provides a bit of competition for Luke; she goes off on her own early on to solve a case on kidnapped children, that later goes much deeper with the main plot. Emma Tate also voices Janice, a famed opera singer who requested Layton to assist her in an odd occurrence. The rest of the cast does a fine job, but to go more into them might ruin some of the film's surprises. The opening though contains few tidbits for the fans to enjoy as favorite characters from the games make small cameos including rival Don Paolo, Inspector Chelmey and Flora Reinhold. Professor Layton has solved many cases, but when a deadly game with the prize of Eternal Life comes he must solve the case before it's all to late. The film provides a fun adventure feel, all while making the audience think about the challenges the characters come across with ( can you figure out whats the oldest thing you can see before they do? or would you have failed so early and meet certain doom) it provides a lot of interest in the mystery of it all. The final act of the film provides multiple plot twists in a single scene, it'd probably leave someone like M. Night dumbfounded, which unlike his most recent films this film has some good and smart twists. The adventure starts and never slows down, always making it fun to see how far these characters will go. Say what you will for other videogame films but "Professor Layton And The Eternal Diva" is a must watch not only for gamers, not only for animation fans, not only for mystery fans, but everyone.

John G (jp) wrote: Holy Jesus! People actually liked this movie?It was terrible! The Lifetime Movie Network rejected it, saying, "C'mon, even we have our standards." The dialogue - and damn, but there's a lot of dialogue - is like being hit in the face with a rotting steak: first you flinch away initial slimy blow, then you wrinkle your nose because of the lingering stench. The characters have Autism, not Corny Stilted Dialogue-itis. And the secondary characters couldn't be more two dimensional if they were pictures of cardboard cutouts. The only thing more flimsy than they are is the on screen expression of their Autism. And here's what I learned about Autism/Aspergers Syndrome: If you have it, you like bunnies and iguanas and let birds s*** all over your living room. Oh, and you're into your own private form of Numerology. I decided to check out Mozart & the Whale because I recently watched Temple Grandin and thought, "Wow! A relationship between two people with Aspergers probably has some unique and interesting drawbacks and benefits." And a movie about two people who have Aspergers and were in a relationship probably would be interesting.Instead, what I saw was a film that downplayed any real potential difficulties to give us a scene where, OMG, someone yells, "Noooo!" like a bad Darth Vader impression and falls down at a carnival. (Does that description seem corny and odd to you? That's because it was...) Instead of working with the subject, it's used (poorly) as a prop to create the requisite and familiar ups and downs in a movie relationship. The writer must have gone, "What should I do this time? Two people who fall in love in an elevator? Naw. Two people who both like jumbo shrimp and fall in love while buying it at a bodega? Naw. High school sweethearts who fall in love, lose each other because of some silly argument, then find love again when they're 40 and beaten down by life? Naw. I know! I'll give a disease! Let me just whip out the DSM-IV and select a page a random....Ah, ha! Something in the A's..." All my venting aside, here's what is wrong with Mozart & the Whale: The story was being told by two people who were a bit dysfunctional. They couldn't be too dysfunctional, however, because then the story wouldn't get told. For example, the male lead says, early in the film, "I never know what to say." Then he goes to say volumes, all of it exactly the kind of dialogue one would expect to be said in a romantic movie. He says just exactly what he needs to say, never actually having trouble expressing himself, because if that happened, there'd be no story. What the film needs is a third lens or point of view. A friend of both the male and female character. A doctor. An orderly. Something. Some way of allowing us to experience the story without having to rely on the two characters having convenient Aspergers (that is, Aspergers that only pops up when it's dramatically appropriate).I'll say this in closing: Dear Mr. Hartnett, Consider getting a new agent, as your current one seems to be working through some personal grudge with you by putting you in stinker after stinker. - John

The Stuart sketches always made me laugh hysterically,but the movie seems to have slid away from the funny bone and into the heart. I get it, for a three minute skit to hold an audience for 90 minutes you need some substance... I'm just not sure the proper vein was tapped here. Not a bad film by any means, just not what I wanted from a Stuart Smalley movie.

Josh S (ru) wrote: At first, while watching this, I said to myself, "there's no way I'll give this less than a 3, but by the end, I was somewhat disappointed, so it gets a two and a half. The saving grace of this film is the two lead actors, Gary Oldman and Kevin Bacon. Bacon did psycho really well, especially with his fascination with his renegade ancestor. Apart from that, the story is really interesting, but was written weakly. It moved quick and the suspense was not captivating. It''s a shame because this one started off with potential.
Brandon W (fr) wrote: I actually would have never heard of this film if it wasn't for my Spanish teacher. He said that it's a good movie, so I figure that I should watch it to see if I like it too. La Bamba is a good film, but it does feel like an everyday underdog movie. It didn't felt original to me and it's just stuff that I saw. But it was nice to see how Ritchie got himself famous. The acting is great in this, and the two moments that make this stand out a bit from other films, are what happen to Ritchie because it came out of nowhere which I'm glad that it was, making it unpredictable. The other moment is the relationship between the two brothers as I believe that they are brothers. The songs are really nice to listen to and didn't realize that he made them. Good film, but needs to be more original.

The way Astaire can make even the simplest of tap-dances more interesting with setting and props makes him the Jackie Chan of musicals. And "I'm in Heaven" really is a beautiful little standard.
