(ag) wrote: Loosely based and I mean really loosely on the life of boxing manager Jackie Kallen. Meg Ryan delivers a good performance in a movie that had so much potential but at times falls flat. My biggest misunderstanding with this movie is why it says anything about Jackie Kallen, besides the name of Meg Ryan's character and her gender, nothing else resembles the real Jackie Kallen's life. This is a predictable, feel good by the end film and it fulfills that purpose. So what if you have it figured out half way through, Meg Ryan and Omar Epps performances make up for the completely stereotyped performances of everyone else in the movie. Worth renting at least once.

"Leviathan" was the best of them, due mostly to its eclectic cast and better-than-average special effects. Stan Winston was one of the best in the business, and his work here showcases that talent. It's not one of his best, but it sure was refreshing to revisit a film with an actual effects team and not a bunch of guys making them up on a computer. I was only disappointed in the finale, when you finally get a chance to see the creature in the daylight, but director George P. Cosmatos instead chooses to show him in only quick cut-aways. Apparently, he had a lot less confidence in Winston's abilities than the genre's true fans. Cosmatos gets a lot of flack for his films, but this one moves along at a brisk pace save for the set-up thatr actually takes the time to introduce the characters. That was something of a pleasant rarity as well. The cast is a lot of fun, and everyone is very convincing in their roles despite some of the ludicrous dialogue they are forced to say. That only adds to the fun to be had here, but I do wish that there had been more of a backstory involving the creature's origin. That would have fleshed the story out some and strengthened the opening half. But as it stands, "Leviathan" is a surprisingly solid B-movie that has held up pretty well over the years. The sets are impressive, as are the effects lending this the look and feel of a much more prestigious and expensive project even if the story is as pieced together as its creature.

A more traditional horror tale compared to his other output this is a much tamer outing than his fans may have wanted.Set in the mid-west of America it tells of a young farming couple who are at odds with their neighbours, a community of Hittites (a more conservative version of the Amish if that's possible) due to the young farmer having left the community to marry a girl from the big city. When the farmer is killed in what appears to be a mysterious accident his his widow invites two friends from the city to help her overcome her loss and run the farm. The Hittites are further enraged by more unwanted newcomers in their midst and someone starts offing the cast members and putting both groups at odds with each other.Craven manages to craft a quite atmospheric feeling to the film which is more of a spooky slow burn than most of his back catalogue. The landscape is artistically shot to build the feeling of isolation and the characters interaction is well played. Where is flounders at times is a lack of focus on what it's trying to be - at one turn it's a supernatural ghost story, the next it's aiming to be a slash and stalk flick. As it fails to settle on one direction and make the best of it.It does contain some very effective scenes however, not least Sharon Stone (in her first film role) having a very close encounter with a large spider in the barn. Regular Craven cast member Michael Berryman turns up playing his usual slightly deranged character but despite being the focus of much of the film's promotional material is only really a supporting character. Craven delivers some decent characterisation and a fair few shocks but then the whole thing becomes a bit of a mess in the final ten minutes when it piles multiple conflicting plot twists upon one another as the identity of the killer is revealed.Despite that it remains an assured piece of film making that deserved a wider audience than it received on it's initial release and would certainly be recommended for anyone wanting some milder chills on Halloween evening.

(kr) wrote: Speedy is a young man who doesn't have the dedication to hold any job down for more than a week; mostly, he's only interested in the Yankees. When we first see him (this is the movie's best scene), he's working as a soda jerk, making phone calls to his connection at Yankee Stadium between orders to find out the score, which he then spells out for the guys in the kitchen by lining up donuts (0), eclairs (1) and a half-eaten pretzel (3) in the two-tiered pastry window. He quickly loses that job and takes another, driving a cab, but can't seem to have any luck finding a passenger, until he picks up Babe Ruth, drives him to Yankee Stadium, and abandons his cab in the middle of the street to watch the game. Unfortunately, his seat is right behind that of his boss, and he loses that job, too. Meanwhile, his girlfriend's grandpa runs the very last horse-drawn train in the city, and the railroad company has been trying to buy him out so that they can take over his track. That car is his life, and it performs double-duty as the clubhouse for all of the neighborhood workers, so he refuses to give it up without a fight, turning down their offers for piddly sums and holding out for a bigger payment of $10,000. Speedy, seeing in the paper that without grandpa's track, the railroad merger will never go through, changes grandpa's request to $70,000. Outraged, the railroad boss decides to engage in a bit of foul play, stealing the car so that it won't be able to operate for 24 hours, thereby causing gramps to lose his right to the track. Speedy saves the day, locating the cart and racing it against the clock back to the track. This movie features another great riot scene, in which the local tradesmen (some of them old enough that they have their Civil War uniforms) battle the bad guys in the street, and it also features an awesome long Coney Island sequence earlier on, when Speedy takes his girl out for a date and they eat their way along the boardwalk, win more prizes than they can carry home, and are adopted by a tenaciously cute dog who will end up helping Speedy save grandpa's train. Coney Island, Yankee Stadium, Chinatown; pools, taxis, horses, dogs, soda fountains, and the subway: new New York isn't so different than old New York, although it seems less romantic these days.
