Kong M (ag) wrote: Reminded me of City of God There are already a few pieces of movies with the same core reference to child soldiers in Africa. They all had one thing in common - they showed us an overall birds-eye view of what child soldiering was like. This movie appeared to be steered in a different way. It is not an overall picture of things, but rather a personal ordeal told from a strong-willed girl. Aside from some of the the wishy washy 'voodoo' and romance elements of it, there are many things worth pointing out from this movie. The key attraction is of course the fantasy side of things which artistically fit very well into the overall story. But ultimately it is a heartwarming story of survival. The style used in this movie reminded me of City of God, not because of whether it possess the same style or the gore behind it (well it was not that gory), but the music used and the tone of the setting are unique in its own way.

Il y a des paralleles avec ''Trafic humain'' quant a la vie qui attend beaucoup d'immigrantes mal prises ici. Dans le fond, je crois que mon malaise qui m'empeche de donner une note encore plus haute est que je n'ai pas completement connecte avec les deux protagonistes (la Bresilienne est charmante mais naive et son amie est belle comme un coeur mais manipulatrice a souhait). Ou c'est moi qui vais se rendre compte dans 2-3 jours que c'etait un film extraordinaire, comme ca m'arrive parfois avec les films lents et psychologiques. Je les apprecie plus en y reflechissant ensuite.

Primal Species is one of those films what isn't so bad it's good, it's just so bad it's.......... bad, I guess. Anyway, it was obvious that the producers and director of this film were only interested in the money from this, and instead of the makers of this film concentrating on "Carnosaurs", they seem to concentrate on the argument of: "which is better, the army or the navy?!?!" ha ha. At the end of the day, this is just pathetic, and nothing more than pathetic.

It's by no means a classic and only gets 3 and a half stars for sentimentality, but the performances were good and the story highlighted several less than "normal" family circumstances which was fresh and interesting. It is a movie for young adolescent girls and unless you have some sort of attachment to a memory of this film then chances are you will not enjoy or see the charm that lies in it. Awesome 60s soundtrack make this what has been called the 90s girl version of Stand By Me; though nowhere near as good.

She became a well known actress during the 1920's, featuring in dramas like Grand Hotel (1932) but it was later in her career during 1940's that she had her most successful period culminating in an Oscar for Best Actress in Mildred Pierce (1945). She starred in a series of thrillers around this time including Sudden Fear, a delicously dark noir melodrama. Myra Hudson (Crawford) is a rich and successful playwright. She has everything in her life except love. Step forward Lester Blaine (Jack Palance) a struggling actor who meets, woos and eventually marries her. All seems to be going well until Lesters ex girlfriend locates and teams up with him. With knowledge, heard through the grapevine that Myra intends to give a large part of her fotune to charity, a plan is cooked up to murder her before she can change her will. Unexpected twists and turns arise and revenge is not far away. Sudden Fear is about control and influence. Myra has made a success of herself and through influencing others. Her very first meeting with Lester results in him being rejected for her new play (it was a chance meeting a month later that they become friendly). Later when she finds out about the darstadly plot against her, she attempts to set up the conspirators and manipulate them as if they are unconscious actors and she is a director of a play. Faces are a recurring theme. As this is a Joan Crawford vehicle there are plenty of close ups of her strong featured, heavily made up glamorous visage. The money shot has a close up of Crawford with the shadow of a pendulum from a clock swinging against her face as she hatches her plan of revenge. Jack Palance's mug is distinctive (during World War 2 he had plastic surgery due to combat injuries) with it's sharp angles and is used to good effect with lighting techniques helping to accentuate his features. This helps give him an air of mystery. It was during the first scene after being rejected from the play that he gave a fine speech about his his looks. Permanently pouting Gloria Grahame as the ex girlfriend adds beauty to the roll call of faces. Overall a well crafted revenge thriller, which begins with a gentle set up, an eventfull middle act leading to a thrilling, edge of the seat third act finale. Interesting fact (or piece of gossip): Crawford fought against the casting of Palance calling him the ugliest man in Hollywood, ironic as this mirrors the first scene in the film. The producer persuaded her that Palance was the only man scary enough to make her character more sympathetic than her.
Vasco M (fr) wrote: Rise of Technovore is one of my favourite animated Marvel feature films because it features an interesting villain - both aesthetically and psychologically speaking -, and a style of animation that to me is previously unseen among the Marvel animated movie roster, though that could be just me. Rise of Technovore is a tad too heavy on the Iron Man vs Shield front instead of focusing on the titular threat, and the dialogue doesn't always match the animation probably due to the way that Japanese animators expect anime characters to talk. Nevertheless, the movie is a pretty bit of fun.

The fun parts I did enjoy so that's something. Except for Sam Jackson's character every other character is boring. Those snakes don't look at all real.
