D M (kr) wrote: A young man is devastated when his girlfriend dies from a snakebite while on a hike. During the mourning process he spends a lot of time with her parents only to discover they have been hiding her as she has been re-animated. Once they re-kindle their relationship she starts to act like nearly every girlfriend I've ever had. Aubrey Plaza, Molly Shannon, John C. Reilly, Cheryl Hines, Paul Reiser, and Alia Shawkat star in this ZomRomCom with a lot of typical Jewish humour. A pretty good soundtrack (well, minus the smooth jazz).

Cosmo S (ru) wrote: Designed for audience range of age 17-19, which will certainly limit it's box office, so this is a DVD movie. A rocker that doesn't quite rock. Cute poses, style, good photography, editing, all the elements to make something memorable, but Cherrybomb does not quite make a real movie. More bomb than cherry. Almost successful. Robert Sheehan does the best acting in this film, but it seems like he's in the wrong movie.

Edith N (kr) wrote: Adding to My Mental Kevin Bacon Game Why is it that so many of these issue movies are so devoid of fact? The historical figures are not anywhere near so heroic or tragic or what have you, despite the fact that there are plenty of stories which do make whatever point they care to. It would not be all that difficult to find a story which accurately demonstrates that the prisons of the 1930s and '40s were desperately in need of reform. I mean, they've made an astonishingly accurate movie showing that the asylums of that era needed reform. It wouldn't take much effort to find a similar story in the prisons. There are plenty of accurate stories about the failings of the death penalty, but you get tripe like that horrid Kevin Spacey movie we did. There are plenty of people over the years who are falsely imprisoned, so you don't need to make movies about boxers who, no really, actually killed the people they were in prison for killing. It just makes people arguing against the status quo look foolish, because they're believing--and spreading--untruths. According to the movie, and we'll get to the truth later, Henri Young (Kevin Bacon) stole five dollars from a store to feed his starving sister. However, that store was also a post office, and that made it a federal crime. Therefore, he ended up at Alcatraz, where he became part of the escape attempt wherein Doc Barker was killed. Henri survived, and though the law held that men could only be kept in solitary confinement for nineteen days, Henri was kept there for three years. He was only allowed out for a single half-hour exercise break in that whole time. Upon his eventual release from solitary, he snaps and kills another prisoner in the cafeteria. Despite having committed his crime in full view of literally hundreds of people, he still gets a trial, as is his legal right. His attorney is public defender James Stamphill (Christian Slater), who makes the argument that it is the system at Alcatraz that is the real killer, and that Henri is only a tool of the system. That whole "he only stole five dollars!" thing is awfully poignant, which is probably how you should have guessed that it is, in fact, complete and utter crap. The killing of Rufus McCain (David Michael Sterling) was not, in fact Henri Young's first murder. (It's worth noting that, while no one knows why Henri did it, McCain was also part of that ill-fated escape attempt.) In fact, he was fifteen when he committed his first murder. He had held a hostage before. He was a deeply unpleasant person in just about every respect. What's more, he was back in the general population bare months after the escape attempt. While it's entirely possible that he spent longer in solitary confinement than was legally permitted, it was assuredly not three years. However, you can't defame the dead, so they didn't have to worry about the families of Milton Glenn (Gary Oldman) and James Humson (Stefan Gierasch) coming after them. Even had I not gone and looked all that up--because of course I did--I'm not sure I would have found this movie particularly effective. Kevin Bacon gives the most ridiculous, over-the-top performance I think I've ever seen. (Well, okay; some of the work of Nicolas Cage gives it a run for its money.) I don't know why they think three years of solitary confinement would do this to a person; most of his performance seems to require at least low-level retardation before he went into the dungeons in the first place. And if he were, in fact, retarded before he went into the dungeons, that would be the sort of thing that a wise defense attorney ought to bring up as further evidence of diminished capacity. Even in those days, that actually was a thing. In the end, Alcatraz was just too expensive. That's the real secret. Every drop of water had to be either collected from rain or else carried over by boat. Carrying over food was almost certainly more efficient than growing it there, given the amount of water it would take. The guards' families lived on the island, probably because it was deemed better for the guards psychologically, but there were quite a few logistical problems with that. Among other things, it meant that the children had to be shipped back and forth to the mainland for school. We have a belief that the prisoners of Alcatraz were the worst of the worst, but that wasn't always true. However, it just generally wasn't cost-effective to keep the prison running. Besides, time at Alcatraz was bad enough even without spending three years in a Civil War-era basement.

To his credit, Cox doesn't exploit the chaotic relationship of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen nor the mysterious circumstances surrounding Nancy's death and that's an achievement in itself. Some of the sequences play as a beautiful homage to punk and Gary Oldman's breakthrough performance definitely deserves a watch! A young Courtney Love (before all the plastic surgery) may have missed out on the leading role but had a small part written specifically for her so she would not be left out entirely. That she would, unpredictably become some kind of Nancy Spungen herself only adds to the film's cult status.

This Film Makes It's Viewers Seem Sympathetic Towards The Psychopathic Twins At One Point & Is Generally Entertaining Viewing. The Story Focuses On A Young Man, Duane Bradley (Kevin Van Hentenryck), Who Carries A Wicker Basket Around With Him Wherever He Goes. The Contents However Are Deadly, Inside His Basket Lives His Small Deformed Twin. The Brothers Are Out For Revenge Against The Doctors Who Surgically Separated These Previously Conjoined Duo. The Plot Is Good But Sadly Basic And The Acting Not That Great. What Were Presented With An Entertaining Horror Flick.

Phil H (nl) wrote: Hot on the heels of a small sci-fi production called 'Star Wars' came this remake of 'The Magnificent Seven' and 'Seven Samurai'. If you haven't guessed the difference was the story has now been set in space.A Roger Corman production so you might think it would be space trash, but at the time this was quite a big release as sci-fi was popular again. The people involved with this film is actually quite impressive, for one James Cameron was in charge of the effects (mainly models) so this explains why they look so detailed, imaginative and quite good.The cast for the film is also impressive for the time, looking back they are all your typical B-movie players really. Classic character actor Richard Thomas is the young hero, the legendRobert Vaughn plays a space merc, John Saxon is the evil space villain and George Peppard is the 'Space Cowboy'. Yep he has no name other than that, cos he's coooool. All are legends in their own right (accept Thomas maybe) but you can't deny all have popped up in some glorious B-movie fluff in their time, film and TV.The film on the whole is a brave effort and bold with certain ideas. The start of the film seems quite sensible with its 'Star Trek' like score playing accompanying slow camera pans of various spaceships...all very 'Star Trek-ish'. The costumes aren't too bad either, this isn't a 'Flash Gordon' type affair, well not too much. Of course you can see many similarities to other films in both costumes and various ideas but that is pretty inevitable seeing as 'Star Wars' came out in 78.As the film progresses it does become a tad dull really, the whole time is spent with the hero looking for mercs to save his home planet. This is where the film tends to rollercoaster as some people he meets are pretty good in design, others are not. Take Peppard as the Space Cowboy, his ship's interior looks good, its well designed and has a nice 'Millennium Falcon' feel about it, the character himself is cliched but Peppard makes the role work nicely.Some ships looks good while others look terrible, laser effects are poor and not helped by the quite ridiculous sound effects used. The names used for some of these alien races, planets etc...tend to be rather daft too. Sets vary from scene to scene with the odd one looking nice but most looking rather plastic with merely lots of flashing lights everywhere.Speaking of the 'Millennium Falcon', Robert Vaughn's character is a complete 'Han Solo' rip off in my opinion, right down to his boots. Other characters like the 'Nestor' and 'Valkyrie warriors' are just your typical B-movie crap frankly. They look like they were designed in the 50's, bad makeup, tacky fake plastic looking costumes and completely childish, real cheap sci-fi. From time to time there are some nice ideas though, the character of 'Cayman' is a nice addition with a reasonable looking reptilian mask. Oh I forgot...the 'Valkyrie warriors' are stunning women with tight outfits that easily reveal their enormous breasts. Just like it would be in space, what? are you saying there aren't alien races like that?. The film does get sillier and sillier as it goes on, the ham builds with performances and effects. I loved the evil laughter sequences by Saxon and his mutant henchmen...classic stuff. A little bit of evil dialog then pause for some evil laughter with your henchmen. The makeup design for 'Sador' actually looks a bit like Ed Wood's 'Plan 9 from Outer Space' with the single face mark, the mark of the baddie.The film kicks into gear towards the end as we see the final battle between 'Sador' and good guys. Lots of laser gun fights, dodgy space battles with the same model sequences being reused over and over and some great cheesy acting from all.Its clear to see many influences in this film from classic sci-fi such as 'Star Trek', 'Lost in Space', 'Westworld', 'Forbidden Planet', 'Star Wars' and many films from the 70's. But you have to hand it to Corman and director Murakami as they too have influenced many sci-fi films with this. The whole concept of a 'space cowboy' may well have originated here, if you overlook 'Han Solo'.
