Movies already have so much to explain in a short time to give the full story and with this, they jumped around so much that it felt they never made a coherent storyline. Especially when they tried to tie them. I think, had the stories not been chopped up, it could've had good potential. And, I'm sorry, but if you're going to portray military characters, please at least follow the uniform guidelines! It drives me crazy to see such obvious flaws and I'm not even in the military!

(gb) wrote: As a big Paul Thomas Anderson fan, let me just say that; films such as this are why I am a big Paul Thomas Anderson fan. It's clear from the get-go that Magnolia is an ambition work- you know what to expect going in. An ensemble cast, each playing intricate characters whose lives we will catch a good glimpse of and all the while we'll know that everything is going to come together in some way and we're gong to leave feeling completely satisfied. To some extent, that is exactly what happens, but it also isn't.Sound complicated? Well, that's because it is. Magnolia is brimming with ideas and it's blatantly obvious that Paul Thomas Anderson had a blast when putting this one together. There are so many characters, none of whom are short-changed in this three hour film and so many different emotional colours are touched upon throughout the piece. It's never even slightly dull or boring though and it goes from dramatic to comedic with such ease and Grace that you begin to understand why the likes of Hoffman, Moore, Cruise, and Macy would all be willing to take part in this film without any of them ever being the star. There is no one story here, instead there's like seven or something- I don't even remember, but I loved them all and I believed them all and I didn't really care that, as the film went on, it looked less and less likely that I was every gong to feel truly fulfilled when all was said and done. By the half-way point, I saw no real way for the characters involved to come together and it was fine with that. I still wanted it though, I really did. Then it happened. This... thing, just kind of happened and, as critic Joe Siegel noted (very disparagingly, I might add):"(it) had nothing to do with anything that we've seen before that I couldn't watch. I literally could not watch it".I, on the other hand, could not stop watching it. This 'moment' will ever hit you as the great success or the great failure in this film and I'll let you watch it for yourself and decide. However, for me, it was clearly a success and it remains one of my favourite moments in film history. As Ebert put it:"what it transforms at the end is our expectation that every movie has to be dead in the water and be predictable, be formulaic and in the way we expect it to. This movie is alive and free to surprise us". This is a pretty melodramatic work and it heavily features the music of Aimee Mann, going as far as to have characters in the film both quote her work and, at one, point even actually sing it. To some people, this will probably be a bit much but, hey, I really like Aimee Mann and I think the songs are great so I liked it. You might think that this film is a disaster but I think that you should watch it anyway. Why? Well, instead, you might end up thinking that it's kind of a masterpiece. Isn't individual interpretation great?

(us) wrote: This film might be evidence of just how much nostalgia can affect my judgement. I suspect it's not nearly as good a movie as I give it credit for, but I feel so happy when I watch it. For a quick synopsis, this is the story of a group of tenants who live in an apartment complex that is standing in the way of a big corporation's new construction. The tenants don't want to leave, and corporation does everything they can to force them out anyways. That's about the time when mechanical alien lifeforms appear and begin to fix everything (literally and figuratively.) A lot of movies might drag their feet setting up the characters and the situation before introducing the aliens, but this one moves with efficient timing. We meet the different residents of the building quickly and it's pretty early on when the first alien appears. I think the visual effects of these creatures is solid and blends pretty well with the sets and actors. I'm never sure whether they are using a full-sized prop on a string, or some type of miniature/animation that is added in later. However, the effectiveness of the story lies more on how much you buy into the character's motivations. Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy are the leads and they definitely add most of the heart to the movie. The other tenants are not bad, but their plight feels less dire and some of their scenes come across as strange meanderings in the plot. The film as a whole isn't great, but it has enough heartwarming moments, and fun characters that I still enjoy it a lot. I have trouble recommending Batteries Not Included because I know my fondness from childhood elevates it for me, but I will say the movie probably won't upset or frustrate anyone. It's simple, sweet, and not bad for the whole family.

(it) wrote: It's really a very stupid film, but I love it, sex vice and perversion everything mixed up together in a completely mess and between that a gay turned into straight and a ninfomaniac into a Charlote York finishing in a love story. Anyway, there's a hidden meaning in the film that I beat you to discover (unless it's my imagination... that've got a lot)

(es) wrote: Giving a generous rating in part due to its historical significance as the first US made zombie movie and one of the earlier talkies. The story moves along fairly quickly, but Lugosi and the other actors rely too much on pantomime to express ideas. The acting, as in everything I've seen from this era, is not to my liking - dialogue is delivered too stilted and movements are unnatural. Didn't enjoy this enough to recommend it to anyone.
