Can a girl from Little Rock find happiness with a mature French planter she got to know one enchanted evening away from the military hospital where she is a nurse? Or should she just wash that man out of her hair? Bloody Mary is the philosopher of the island and it's hard to believe she could be the mother of Liat who has captured the heart of Lt. Joseph Cable USMC. While waiting for action in the war in the South Pacific, sailors and nurses put on a musical comedy show. The war gets closer and the saga of Nellie Forbush and Emile de Becque becomes serious drama.

Ben L (jp) wrote: Conspiracy Theory is a film about a crazy cab driver (played by Mel Gibson) who obsesses over a reporter (played by Julia Roberts.) Everything he tells her sounds like the ravings of a crazy guy from the tin-foil hat society, until they find themselves wrapped up in a conspiracy of their own. I love the cast in this movie. Mel Gibson is great at playing the unhinged insanity of Jerry. There is one scene in particular that made me wonder why he never did horror, because he has the insane screams down to a science. Julia Roberts grounds the movie and brings genuine emotion. Her character has to make some dramatic shifts of allegiance throughout the film, but I think she is capable of making those transitions believable. Patrick Stewart proves in this film that he should play more villains. He is so creepy, particularly in his face-to-face discussions with the other leads, I feel uneasy the entire time. The story of Conspiracy Theory is a bit far-fetched and crazy, but it almost has to be so that it can match the insanity of all the conspiracies Jerry describes. Perhaps the biggest flaw in this film is some of the convenient ways they write themselves out of a tight spot. For instance: They need to give Julia a way to get a head start running from the bad guys, so just put a loosely covered pit right there for one of them to fall in. It's lazy writing, and it diminishes the excitement and perceived danger of the scene when it feels like the movie is always going to be on her side. However, these lazy plot points in the film aren't enough to make me dislike it. I find it to be an entertaining mystery/action movie that is made better by a few excellent performances.

It is a rather short anthology of two terrifyingly twisted tales, with an inset story featuring Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future). But do they terrify the average film-goer? A wandering storyteller, Aaron Quicksilver (Lloyd), narrates the tales in two strikingly different locations: Stephen King's 'Chattery Teeth' along a deserted stretch of desert highway and Clive Barker's 'The Body Politic' within the carnivalesque setting of a funfair.The more interesting of the two tales is 'Chattery Teeth', which tells of a psychopathic hitchhiker who falls prey to a relentless and dangerously-sharp set of chattering teeth owned by the travelling salesman driving the car. 'Chattery Teeth' is taken from a short story written by King and first published in 'Cemetery Dance' magazine in the nineties. Similar to the stories found in 'Creepshow' and 'Creepshow 2', it is a bizarre and disturbing story with a twist in the tail (think 'Twilight Zone' and the 'Ray Bradbury Theater').The lesser of the two is Barker's 'The Body Politic'. Here, a hand comes alive, goes completely out of control, and eventually attacks its owner. The story is taken from Clive Barker's 'Books of Blood: Vol 4' and is actually quite an entertaining and intelligent story ... in print. However, attempting to re-create this story on film just doesn't work. The effects are nothing short of laughable, which inevitably ruins a good tale.'Quicksilver Highway' is directed by Mick Garris, who has collaborated with Stephen King on more than one occasion (see 'Sleepwalkers', 'The Stand', 'The Shining' (TV), and the forthcoming 'Riding the Bullet' and 'Desperation'). He is also the man behind some of the 'Twilight Zone' episodes and 'Freddy's Nightmares', the latter explaining his less than efficient effort with 'Quicksilver Highway'.Nevertheless, the cast is well chosen - Matt Frewer (The Stand), John Landis (dir. 'An American Werewolf in London'), Bill Nunn (Kiss the Girls), and Clive Barker - and although the movie does have its tedious and ridiculous moments (check out Lloyd's fetishistic leather garb), it is watchable. Fans of 'Tales from the Crypt' and 'Tales from the Darkside' will certainly want to give this film a look-see.
Samuel P (es) wrote: 'Walker' has all the trappings of a film that I would take to bed with me at night -- it's a Western, Alex Cox directed it, Ed Harris stars, the score was composed by Joe Strummer (of The Clash). And yet, I find myself severely disliking this film. But, why?Ed Harris' constantly factually inaccurate narration of the picture (done purposefully) has something to do with it. Itis an attempt to illustrate truth through the lens of a man telling his own fictionalized version. But, it doesn't manage to achieve what it sets out to.And, speaking generally, I have never seen Ed Harris acting worse than he does in this movie. I love Harris in The Rock and many others, but it's as if he was never able to figure out who he was as William Walker, that he just did it to get it over with. If there's a story behind this, I would love to hear it.

Sgt C (nl) wrote: (34%)A very nearly decent early 80's horror TV movie that sadly falls into nothingness largely due to being too tame and ends up feeling like a slightly more violent feature length episode of the twilight zone, only not as smartly crafted or as good. The basic plot premise really isn't that bad, but the characters aren't formed well enough and there's just a feel, mainly during the second half, that this isn't going as far as it needs to make a big enough impact during a time when ever increasingly violent (and better) slasher movies littered cinema screens. With modern remakes of almost every classic horror film endlessly getting made, this for me is something that is far better suited for a new lick of blood. Don't hold your breath.

Ben K (jp) wrote: Imagine if Love Story was directed by Paul Verhoeven, with Ryan O Neal's character a nymphomaniac animal played by Rutger Hauer. That's essentially what this film is, and it's great. A lot of the reviews I've come across for this make the obvious comparison to Last Tango in Paris, but I'd argue that Five Easy Pieces is a better comparison. It has that same angry young man vibe, and it's completely authentic, not a case of posturing. The last fifteen minutes or so lost me as the film turned to melodrama, but was still poignant.
