(de) wrote: What makes a good movie villain? An intimidating presence certainly helps, as does a solid motivation for their devious deeds. Perhaps they're seeking revenge for a past event in their life. Maybe they're hungry for power, and will stop at nothing to become supreme. Or maybe their just anarchists, plain and simple. But, most of all, a good villain is one that's believable, and one that anyone could become under certain circumstances.Such is the distinguishing quality of Alonzo Harris, the main antagonist of Antoine Fuqua's Training Day. The complex relationship between Alonzo and Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke) highlights why Alonzo is so utterly terrifying: Alonzo's actions constantly jump from being understandable in this grimy Los Angeles environment to being pushed beyond the line of morality. As Hoyt jumps from trusting Alonzo to not trusting him, we do the same. How can we side with someone profiting off of innocents, often with no regard to their lives? But he's a family man and an established cop: surely he's trustworthy. It's quite a fascinating dynamic that writer David Ayer has crafted up here.Of course, it helps that such a complex character has a talented actor like Denzel Washington behind him. In an Oscar winning performance, Washington goes full-on antagonist, a kind of performance we rarely see from him, and a quality that makes the character dynamic that much more effective. Perhaps he camps it up at times, but Washington's charisma is too infectious to be bothered by any campiness. Alongside him is one of the finest performances from Ethan Hawke. Hawke really sells the struggle of the rookie cop in over his head, and his transformation from rookie to hardened cop is a fantastic showcase for his acting chops.Behind the camera, Antoine Fuqua directs with an appropriate amount of grit and unrelenting tension. Every scene is wound like a guitar string: with nobody to truly trust, you're left with an increasing heart rate as you prepare for the inevitable snap. It's rare for a film to go from zero to sixty so quickly and keep that pace consistent throughout a two hour runtime, but Fuqua does it with impeccable ease. A quintessential crime thriller.
(ag) wrote: Look, as we all know from "Smokey and the Bandit", Sally Field doesn't smoke. The Bandit tried to teach her but it didn't take. Good for her, it's a filthy habit, but every time she pulls one out of her purse here and puts it up to her lips like she's about to play the flute, I want to throw something at the television. I don't know why her character had to be a smoker, but if she wanted to play one in the movies, she should have spent a few weeks with them in the 'hood, and learned how to hold a cigarette for crying out loud. Isn't that what method acting is all about? Didn't she win a couple of Oscars? Yeah, well, she should have to give one back. Anyway, if you can get past that, this movie is okay. As always, Paul Newman stares off into space excellently. He's deep. "Absence of Malice" is kinda leisurely paced and some of the melodramatic turns stretch credibly, but it heats up at the end. The movie takes itself a little too seriously, but it's okay. The Quaker Oates guy, the one with the dia-bee-tus, he's pretty good here. Just when this movie needed a ludicrous mustache, he brings it gangbusters.

(es) wrote: The thirteenth Bond film, and second of five directed by John Glen (For Your Eyes Only, A View to a Kill, The Living Daylights, and License to Kill).When fanatical Soviet General Orlov (Steven Berkoff) devises a plan to detonate a nuclear bomb on a West German U.S. Air Force Base, by stealing valuable jewels from the Kremlin and selling them to aristocratic smuggler Kamal Kahn (Louis Jordan), which in turn will use his business partner, Octopussy's (Maud Adams) traveling circus to get the bomb onto the base, and blow it up, which would lead to the U.S. pulling it's forces out of Western Europe, and then the Soviets would be able to take over. 007 is sent in after 009 shows up dead at the British Embassy in East Germany holding a Faberge egg.Roger Moore is starting to look a little old in this one, but at least this Bond Girl (Maud Adams) is roughly his age. Louis Jordan gives a wonderful performance as 007's top villian. And the locations are spectacular, they make India look like a wonderful place to visit.

Some bits are dated, but it's central premise still stands strong. Respected actor Michael Dorsey (Dustin Hoffman) is difficult to work with, and when his agent George Fields (Pollack) tells him no-one will employ him anymore, Michael gets desperate. He needs the money, and he wants to fund a play written by his roommate Jeff Slater (Bill Murray). So, he goes for an audition for daytime soap opera Southwest General in drag as "Dorothy Michaels", he wins the part. He has to keep the charade up, and his double life really tests his relationship with girlfriend Sandy Lester (Teri Garr), then as Dorothy, he becomes close with his co-star Julie Nichols (Jessica Lange), who takes a real shine to Dorothy. It was allegedly a nightmare to make, but a great little film came out of it, and cross-dressing films have come and gone since, but Hoffman is very convincing and he's got a great supporting cast playing second fiddle to him. It became the second highest grossing film of 1982 just behind E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.

But, in the end, was a normal movie, with some good points, but not to go far over the sufficiency.
