(ag) wrote: I've seen kidulthood but it was years ago and can't really remember what happened, I think to get the full benefit of this film you would have to watch them back to back, pretty gritty and some of the lingo was very difficult to understand. Thought the ending was a bit of a letdown as they built sams enemy up to being a bit of a badass and then he ends up getting shouted down of a gobby girlfriend of one of his friends and is then left crying on his arse at the end.

(us) wrote: One of the strangest road movies I have ever seen, and the first Hal Hartley film I saw in the cinema. The conversational back and forth between the odd but somehow empathetic characters and the idea that trivial remarks made can explain more about a person's depth of character. And who knew Long Island was a terminal moraine before this film?

(de) wrote: The fourth and final film in a short yet sweet series of British Miss Marple films produced by MGM during the early 1960's. But, unlike the previous 3 Miss Marple films, this one was an original story, rather than being based upon one of Agatha Christie's original books, as a result, it doesn't work as well as the previous 3 films, but it's enjoyable enough. It has Miss Jane Marple (Margaret Rutherford, wonderful as always), now a trustee of a Navy training vessel, however, one of fellow trustees mysteriously "snuffs" it after his box of snuff was poisoned. Once again, Miss Marple is on the case. It takes her on board the ship she is trustee for, much to the annoyance of the uptight Captain Rhumstone (Lionel Jeffries), but no sooner than Miss Marple is on board the ship, more murders occur, and her faithful companion Jim Stringer (Stringer Davis) and Inspector Craddock (Charles 'Bud' Tingwell) help out. It's a weaker entry to the series, but it is by no means a bad film, it loosely adapts plots and pointers from Christie's other books. Rutherford is as perfect as always, and there is good support from William Mervyn, Francis Matthews, Nicholas Parsons and Derek Nimmo!! :D
(kr) wrote: Crude but funny, The Campaign is a stereotypical raunchy comedy that doesn't really go anywhere. The story follows a congressional campaign where a philandering, long-term congressman receives some stiff competition when a wealth political group decides to run an opposition candidate. Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis lead the cast, but their overacting works against the film. Additionally, the humor seems unfocused and the satire gets a little propaganda-ish. There are laughs to be had in The Campaign, but it doesn't come together very well.
(mx) wrote: Powerful story of envy, bitterness, malice and torment.Two aging sisters, Blanche and Jane, share a large house. Jane was once a child star and Blanche was, in adult life, a star of the silver screen. Blanche's career ended when she was left paralysed from the waist down in an accident involving Jane. Now Jane looks after Blanche in the house, though not very well. Filled with bitterness at her own cinematic career never taking off, envious of Blanche's career and money, an alcoholic and a touch deranged, Jane goes out of her way to torment her sister...A very well made thriller. Starts off slowly and is more a relationship drama for a while. Over time, however, director Robert Aldrich ramps up the intrigue, tension and malice. It is soon apparent that this isn't going to be resolved simply by dialogue...Quite Hitchcockian at times in the tension and intrigue...and menacing undercurrent.Great twist towards the end and a powerful conclusion.Bette Davis is superb as Jane, providing just the right level of menace and insanity. The result is one of the scarier characters in cinematic history. Davis got her 11th, and last, Oscar nomination for her performance. Quite astounding that she didn't win.Joan Crawford is solid as Blanche, and is the perfect foil for Davis/Jane. Victor Buono puts in a good performance as Edwin and provides the movie's best comedic moments. He got a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for his efforts.
