(kr) wrote: Another direct to DVD sequel to the great animated series Futurama, The Beast With a Billion Backs was key to see how the Futurama saga turned out.Playing right off the back of Bender's Big Score, The Beast With a Billion Backs continues the story precisely where the last one left off. It ends up on another zany science fiction story, this time up on an apocalyptic scale which ranges from exploring concepts of romance to religion and segregation of society. Certain elements of the film are disgusting, particularly the character Yivo plunging his its tentacles into everybody. A feature length tale about a gigantic alien octopus rapist is a new to the series, and it is on an all new level of ridiculousness for the series. Admittedly, The Beast With a Billion Backs is my least favourite film of the direct to DVD Futurama film series mainly because the concept is so ridiculous and takes itself very seriously in exploring its themes instead of turning them in for the cheap laughs that they should be, not to mention the fact that it is seriously disgusting. The more than you really think about the plot, the worse it gets. But still, considering the general charm of the characters of the Futurama universe and the colourful animation of the film, The Beast With a Billion Backs has enough strength to appeal to fans. Although as a big fan of Futurama even I found that there were a lot more flaws in The Beast With a Billion Backs than in the many other films, but I still enjoyed it.Although the jokes in The Beast With a Billion Backs were not in a high enough quantity as they usually should have been, the characters in the film are voiced with a talented cast so that the energy in the film is all there. The voice of newcomer David Cross is a nice touch for the role of Yivo because he delivers his lines cleverly enough with emotional passion in that part even though he is portraying a perverted intergalactic octopus. So the technical aspects of The Beast With a Billion Backs seem to be up par once again. The only problem is that the film is so busy focusing on the ridiculous nature of the story that it puts less emphasis on the great anecdotes of all the characters which made Futurama great. The Beast With a Billion Backs is scattered in focus because there are many central plots but a surplus of characters as well. While some of the plot points make interesting points, but I don't really watch Futurama to learn, I watch it to laugh. That was one of the things about the film that I found less favourable. The animation of the film is all very colourful as well and has some good three-dimensional moments, although the excess of pink tentacles may render it less appealing. The preceding film Bender's Big Score did face the similar element of pink nudist aliens with their own disgusting elements, but The Beast With a Billion Backs set that as a challenge and took it to all new heights. But in all it has the same kind of colour and detail that the other films and episodes of the television series.So The Beast With a Billion Backs has the strength to appeal to fans of the television series, and although some of the plot points and visual elements are rather disgusting while the film is too focused on telling its story to remember to put enough jokes in, it still has enough of the charm that its characters bring to it to entertain fans of the franchise.

Several taut stand-offs - truly, the baking of bread has never been so fraught - keep the film ticking over to a clever, worth-the-wait ending.
(gb) wrote: The American Dream SucksVery good Film. Great acting and superb story, I quite enjoyed it alot. Emma Roberts continues to surprise me with such great energy and suave. I highly recommended because is in fact quite lifting and a great piece of cinema.Set in the late 70's, seen through the innocent eyes of a fifteen year old boy, SCOTT, "Lymelife" is a unique take on the dangers of the American Dream. This funny, sad, violent and sometimes tragic look at first love, family dynamics and divorce weaves an intricate tapestry of American life during a time of drastic economic and emotional change.

Well 3 out of 4 ain't bad.This film deals with subject matter later made famous by The Matrix and while it doesn't have nearly the budget, Mindwarp is still quite enjoyable.Angus Scrimm always seems to be the bad guy and he plays it so well. Campbell shows that he might have been a better fit than Keannu when it comes to a Matrix flick... then again, it would have made The Matrix into a very different movie I think.While not perfect and generally not well known, Mindwarp is good fun with plenty of post apocalyptic mayhem and lots and lots of mutants to bring it about.
(br) wrote: Ah, Starcrash; the bizarro-world, Italian acid-trippy version of Star Wars. What separates this gem from the flock of other flunky ripoffs is just how eye-poppingly vibrant it is. Yes, the acting is bad, the effects are bad, the story is bad, but it's all so spectacularly bad that it's difficult to believe that anyone involved was taking this seriously. And so the film has a certain honest quality to it, like a slightly less goofy Monty Python skit. It doesn't feel like they're trying to pass anything off as "convincing" and so you can relax and fall into the absurdity of it all. And now... stuff that's awesome about Starcrash:1. Caroline Munro in a leather bikini (It's like Leia couldn't find a change of clothes after Jabba's palace). It's cold in the vacuum of space, a titty bit nipply, if you know what I mean, heh, heh!2. Caroline Munro in leather bikini fighting other women in leather bikinis 3. Elle: The Earnest P. Worrell version of C-3PO4. The Star Wars theme music that always stops just before copyright infringement.5. The grown up, greasy, cavemen version of the ewoks.6. A young David Hasselhoff and his mushroomy hair.7. Akton: A.K.A. Frampton Comes a Jedi8. Akton kills a bunch of ewok cavemen with a lightsaber; a scene that George Lucas would later recycle for Anakin's sand people massacre/tantrum.9. Count Zarth Arn... a character that George Lucas would later recycle (twice actually) for the prequel trilogy.10. in fact, the entire second half of this film is eerily similar to the first 20 minutes of Revenge of the Sith. 11. It's better than all three prequels combined... and actually feels more Star Wars-y and has emotions and mild suspense and real sets. 12. A space station that looks like a giant hand.13. Greatest villain line in history: "Kill! Kill! Over there!" (points in direction enemy cluster)14. when dudes get hit by laserblasts they explode like frozen turkeys on Independence day. 15. David Hasselhoff's male camel toe around the 1h20m mark.16. Space stations in this galaxy look like the insides of old TV's17. There are no Jar Jar Binks's or farting or burping aliens.18. A higher-than-a-kite Christopher Plummer, in every frame, looking as though he's being forced to recite lines by terrorists off screen. stuff that's not awesome about Starcrash:1. Caroline Munro puts that stupid plastic bag jumpsuit over her bikini.
