Robert H (nl) wrote: Outpost: Black Sun, the sequel to the nazi zombie flick Outpost, maintains much of what was good from the first film. It also delivers more back story and plot which helps round out the franchise. But like one might expect, if you didn't like something from the first film, it likely made it's way into this sequel. Outpost 2 is essentially very similar to the first film so if you found it too cheesy, or didn't like the look, or thought the soldiers were ridiculous... expect more of the same here.That being said, fans of the first film should be very happy with this outing and like myself, look forward to the third part of the franchise.

Tiberio S (us) wrote: If I walked into this film and people told me it was great, I'd probably use all my laughter as a weapon to assure it's not. But knowing this is a ridiculed film, I was able to appreciate those laughs as a mark of enjoying the campy nature of Joan Crawford's world, which I think is appropriate for this kind of Hollywood nightmare film. It takes awhile to warm up to the style of this world, but I think once you're absorbed, it appropriately plays on your nerves in the way this starlet played on her daughter Christina Crawford, a role split between the older, lackluster Diana Scarwid, and younger, not much more charismatic Mara Hobel. That's more an observation than a criticism, it may be appropriately played, but as a whole it felt lacking. Director Frank Perry is reflecting his camera through her point of view, based on her novel - the movie is about getting to the point where she will spill the beans on this whole abusive lifestyle.Abuse is the central theme, whether abusing alcohol, her children, or her coworkers and lovers. But as over-the-top and eccentric as it is, it's not without a tender, sympathetic heart. The latter act of the film explores some acts of kindness and love between Christina, Joan, and her stepfather Al, who plays a small role in the film. Al is the head of Pepsi-Cola, putting Joan on the Board of Directors, but after his death they try to push her out - Joan is desperate to have work at this point, and threatens to harm the company's image if they don't keep her on. It's hard to tell if Perry is a totally conscious director and achieves intentionally hilarious effects, or if he's just completely lost and getting these good/bad results, but one thing that's awkwardly left to the imagination is the scene cutting away from Joan saying, "let's get to work" with the Pepsi board, and everyone getting their pens and papers ready, as if Joan is going to start calling some major Pepsi shots and delivering new product ideas! Did this really happen? It's funny.There's a lot of funny in this movie, even when things are horrible. Joan loses her mind one night and forces the kids awake - a horrible act she continues to do throughout the movie, leaving us to wonder how exhausted these kids might be - and makes them cut all the plants down in the yard. Inexplicably, cuts keep showing up on her face, though nothing touches her. It happens four times that the camera cuts, and so does her face.Name drop film title at least four times; it's what Christina is required to call her mother. The last time it happens is less creepy, it's suddenly sensitive, almost tear-jerking. We do get a sense that Joan loves her daughter and maybe regrets her outlandish behavior, but at no point in her life is she able to control herself.My favorite sequence has to be Joan taking over the role of her daughter's 28 year-old soap opera character. She's got to be in her 60s by this point, but dresses like her daughter with a wig on, unable to remember lines are read cue cards. It's got to be humiliating for Christina, who's in bed and rolls over to hear the news, her response: "but she's supposed to be 28 years-old."I like the disjointed time lapse that the whole film acts as. Scenes cut within one another, but the next piece of a scene may pick up some time in the future. When we get to Al and Joan's separate deaths, there is no buildup - they've already happened and we are smack in the middle of their aftermath.

Macovei F (nl) wrote: A wonderful story of a young boy who sacrifices everything in order to keep his familly together.The cast did a fantastic job.. you don't think this is just a movie, but more a documentary.. it all looked so real.Every single actor played his part very well, and what a brilliant performance done by Alain Delon!"Rocco's a saint, but whatcan he do in this world?He won't defend himself.He's so forgiving.But we mustn't always forgive."The movie showed me that we should not turn our back to the ones that hurt us or wrong us everytime.. and that is always better to forgive, though I don't think I'm able to do something like Rocco did in this movie.I never thought I will watch 3 hours of an incredibly good film from the 60's.I'm a young boy and I surely have a lot to learn from this movie.I can't believe I waited for so long to see it.Highly recommended!

Ismail A (mx) wrote: Carl Theodor Dreyer's Ordet (1955) based on Kaj Munk's play by the same name (first performed in 1932) is a profound exploration of the problem of faith in the world. One can easily see some of the terrible derivatives it created in the likes of the talentless buffoon Lars von Trier. Although it doesn't compare to Dreyer's stunning masterpiece, The Passion of Joan of Arc, it contains enormous intellectual and emotional depth and the permutations of the notion of faith that it explores in contemporary Protestantism is interesting (considering what a terribly dull subject that is) and Dreyer's choice to stage the miraculous, in a world and a time where it seems like complete madness (Birgitte Federspiel as Inger, says at one point that she believes that miracles happen in small, cumulative ways, almost secretly or invisibly, none of the spectacular showmanship of the bible), in his typical austere, understated way, is deeply moving and beautiful to watch. It is hard to believe that a man who doesn't really believe directed an entire two hours film on the power of faith and its capacity to heal!

Ola G (jp) wrote: LAPD Homicide Sergeant Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover), shortly after his 50th birthday, is partnered with Sergeant Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson), a transfer from narcotics. Riggs is a former Special Forces soldier who lost his wife in a car accident two years prior, has turned suicidal, and has been taking his aggression out on suspects, leading to his superiors requesting his transfer. Murtaugh and Riggs quickly find themselves feuding with each other. Murtaugh is contacted by Michael Hunsaker (Tom Atkins), an old Vietnam War buddy turned banker, but before they can meet, Murtaugh learns that Hunsaker's daughter, Amanda, apparently committed suicide by jumping to her death from her apartment balcony. Autopsy reports show Amanda to have been poisoned with drain cleaner, making the case a possible homicide. Hunsaker tells Murtaugh that he was concerned about his daughter's involvement in drugs, prostitution, and pornography, and was trying to get Murtaugh to help her escape that life. Murtaugh and Riggs go to see Amanda's pimp, but find a drug lab on the premises, leading to a shootout. Riggs kills the pimp and saves Murtaugh's life, who starts to tolerate his new partner. Though the case seems closed, Riggs is aware that the only witness to Amanda's apparent suicide was Dixie, another prostitute who was working away from her normal streets. They go to see her at her home, but it explodes as they approach it. Riggs finds parts of a mercury switch from bomb debris, indicating a professional had set the bomb; children who had been nearby witnessed a man approach the house with a tattoo similar to Riggs', and Murtaugh suspects Hunsaker knows more than he has told him. The two approach Hunsaker before Amanda's funeral, where he reveals that he had previously been part of "Shadow Company," a heroin-smuggling operation run by former special forces operators from the Vietnam War, masterminded by retired General Peter McAllister (Mitchell Ryan) and his right-hand man, Mr. Joshua (Gary Busey). Hunsaker had been laundering the money, but wanted to get out, and when McAllister found out he'd contacted Murtaugh, the general had Amanda killed. As they talk, Joshua arrives in a helicopter and kills Hunsaker. Shadow Company attempts to kill Riggs in a drive-by shooting, but he is saved by a bullet-proof vest. Murtaugh and Riggs fake his death to gain the upper hand against McAllister...Variety wrote, "Lethal Weapon is a film teetering on the brink of absurdity when it gets serious, but thanks to its unrelenting energy and insistent drive, it never quite falls." Richard Schickel of Time called it "Mad Max meets The Cosby Show", saying that it works better than expected. Richard Harrington of The Washington Post described it as "a vivid, visceral reminder of just how exciting an action film can be". At The New York Times, Janet Maslin wrote, "The film is all fast action, noisy stunts and huge, often unflattering close-ups, but it packs an undeniable wallop." Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film four out of four stars, saying Donner "tops himself". "Lethal Weapon" is one of those classic buddy buddy cop movies we have seen in so many versions I cant even count them, but in this case everything falls in place and works really well due to solid direction from Richard Donner and great cinematography from Stephen Goldblatt, excellent casting of Glover and Gibson (plus the great chemistry between them), Gary Buseys bad guy Mr. Joshua and an intense and good action script even its not that much new under the sun if you dissect it. Theres plenty of great scenes between Gibson and Glover and having finally watched the "Directors Cut" version I reckon the added scenes are of value to the film in my opinion to get more flesh on the bone concerning Riggs state of mind. The action and violence is up and close, but I reckon it fits the film and structure. The dialogue has several gems as well and you cant help but love how intense Gibson are in certain scenes. "Lethal Weapon" is a great action flick that stands the test of time. It still holds up in 2016. Trivia: An alternate opening and ending were both filmed (and are available on the Lethal Weapon 4 (1998) DVD). The alternate opening featured Martin Riggs drinking alone in a bar where he is accosted by a couple of thugs who want his money. Riggs claims all of his is in the bank and tells the thugs "not to fuck with him." The thugs attack him, but Riggs easily subdues them. He is then allowed to take a free bottle of booze from the bar in exchange for never returning. Director Richard Donner felt the movie should open with a brighter look at Riggs and filmed the scene with Riggs awakening in his trailer to replace it. The alternate ending featured Riggs and Murtaugh saying good-bye to one another. Murtaugh tells Riggs he's thinking of retiring, but Riggs tells him not to.In addition to the film's theatrical release, an extended Director's Cut version was released later on DVD. The Director's Cut version is longer (117 minutes) than the original theatrical release version (110 minutes), and features additional scenes. One extended scene depicts Riggs dispatching a sniper who had been firing at children in a playground. In another scene, Riggs picks up a street-walking prostitute, but instead of having sex with her, he takes her home to watch The Three Stooges on TV, thus illustrating his loneliness following the death of his wife.Legendary stuntman Dar Robinson was killed in a motorcycle accident shortly after principal photography was finished. Director Richard Donner dedicated the film to him.Shane Black's first draft of Lethal Weapon (1987) which he wrote sometime in 1985 was very different, not just from his later drafts but also from the final movie. This first draft was 141 pages long and it was much darker, it had alternate plot parts, character scenes, action sequences and many other differences, like entire ending which had big chase scene including helicopters and a trailer truck full of cocaine which explodes over Hollywood Hills causing for cocaine to start snowing over Hollywood sign. Riggs was also much different character in this first draft than he is in the movie. Black at first thought that this draft (which was one of his first scripts) sucks so he threw it in the garbage but later changed his mind and re-worked it into the new drafts. For the longest time, Black was the only one who had copy of his first draft until he sold it on auction. This draft still remains some of his most wanted work amongst fans.The fight scene between Riggs and Joshua in the ending was originally four minutes longer, but was cut down for pacing. This explains some continuity mistakes in the final version of the scene.

Laura M (nl) wrote: It was pretty standard 80's action stuff, which is too bad. What I really loved about the first movie was the psychological aspect of the story. It's also what kind of endeared John Rambo to me as well. The movie was interesting though in terms of what was happening in the world in the 80's and how much of that has changed now that it's the 2010's. It's too bad that the movie was so generic and didn't try to do more than be a standard genre piece.
