(br) wrote: A unique entry into the slasher genre. Focusing more on realistic gritty violence rather than cartoonish gore.
(br) wrote: This movie was a cute lil Bollywood flick. something for the geeks in this world. A kind of David and Galyath story about this computer geek that is in love with this girl and through time they meet again but the girl does not know or remember who he is. Songs were not that bad but could have been better. I found the story prolonging a tad annoying i know its bollywood and they are long but man can they make something go a tad faster than snail pace. Too me this was your typical lerkia lerka movie with all the ingredients on a smaller budget with computers thrown in for good measure.In the end Pyaar is possible or impossible the key is with you :)

(ag) wrote: Guillermo del Toro's first feature length picture lays the foundation of what the director will later be praised for; creating deeply rich, layered, fantasies that are pleasing to the eye and have enough depth to compliment the (often beautiful) imagery. Cronos is a little rough around the edges, but there is so much personality, creativity and wit in every frame, it is hard not to admire it (very much like the scarab device in the film).

(mx) wrote: Security guards Chuck (Gailard Sartain) and Bobby (Bill Byrge) play a game of Red light/Green light while being night watchmen for Howard County Bank and Trust and are obsessed with elaborate schemes of would-be thieves. They hear a sound coming from a floor polisher that Ernest is trying to turn on for operation - he works as a night custodian at the bank - and dreams that he would be a clerk. He becomes magnetic from a mishap with the floor polisher and makes a disastrous mess. The next day, bank president Oscar Pendlesmythe's assistant, Charlotte Sparrow (Barbara Tyson) insists that he clean up his mess. Pendlesmythe wants to terminate Ernest's employment, but Charlotte has a soft heart for misfits and stray dogs, so she argues on his behalf. Ernest takes a bath at home in a tumble dry washing machine and uses a blow dryer with a windtunnel force for his evening dinner with Charlotte in a restaurant. He later receives a jury duty summons and excitedly tells the two watchmen about it. During the trial Dracup Maximum Security Prison convict Rubin Bartlett notices that death row inmate Felix Nash is a dead ringer for Ernest. Rubin's lawyer convinces the jury to tour the prison, where Ernest is abducted by Nash and another inmate named Lyle and forced to switch places with Nash. Even though he tries to tell the guards he is not Nash, they refuse to believe him. Ernest also does not know that he has a death sentence which is for Nash.While having lunch, a guard tells them to stand up and be quiet, when he notices Ernest is making a lot of noise, which almost sends him into the cell. Ernest tries a first attempt to tell one of the prison guards that he is Ernest, not Nash, but the guard calls him "Mr. Funny Man" (which is a mistaken lie) and angrily says that he is not funny and is lying and throws him into the cell right in front of Lyle who pushes him back while the first attempt fails. When he pushes him near the prison bars, he tells a prison guard that he was beaten up (and accidentally slamming the guard's head on the bars). A prison guard tells Ernest that he will be sent to the hole, which makes Ernest realize he is in jail. Bartlett tells him that Nash has assumed his identity and warns him to keep his mouth shut. Ernest makes several unsuccessful escape attempts (endearing himself to Lyle in the process), and is soon sent to the electric chair by the prison warden (Charles Napier).The electrocution fails, and Ernest is transformed into a type of superhuman, with the ability to shoot lightning bolts from his hands. He successfully escapes the prison by blasting a hole in the main gates. Making his way home, he discovers that his Pee-wee Herman-like d (C)cor has been replaced by a slick Lounge Lizard style of decorating. He exclaims, "I've been vandalized - by Elvis!" Meanwhile, Nash is preparing to blast open the bank's vault with a time bomb, with Charlotte and an unconscious Chuck bound nearby. Charlotte begs Nash not to go through with it, and he blurts the truth about being an impostor. Charlotte doesn't believe it until he points out he's done a far better job cleaning the floors than Ernest ever had. Ernest arrives and he and Nash do battle. Ernest gets electrocuted yet again when Nash throws him against an electric cage that the bank had rigged to drop from the ceiling to catch robbers. Now Ernest has become polarized and gained the ability to fly. He uses his super powers to fly through the skylight of the bank with the bomb which leads to a spectacular mid-air explosion. Everyone especially Chuck thinks that Ernest has been killed, until he falls through the skylight and lands on Nash, which leads the warden and the guards to find out Ernest was right all along. Ernest tiredly declares, "I came, I saw, I got blowed up" and then passes out.In an alternate ending, Ernest later receives the promotion to bank clerk, and Charlotte promises to assist him in his new position. But Ernest receives yet another shock that has no effect on the immediate metal objects around him, but draws a file cabinet from across the hall...

Banned from her own country - Greece - became member of the legislature after the dictatorship..Great performance as an eclectic crook in this movie.. Peter Ustinov, Robert Morley,and a few old (Drama)cloak and dagger actors. Entertaining and fun. The scenery of Istanbul is nice too.
(br) wrote: A classic noir film that has some of the most chill lines of dialogue I've ever seen in a movie, and a twisting, hard to follow, but very good plot. It's a very conversation oriented movie, and I kinda got a bit sleepy at times and had a hard time following the plot at times. However, with a great plot, excellent noir cinematography, very good acting, the dialogue, and the cool, 1940s vibe, it's an excellent film that deserves its reputation.
(kr) wrote: DEVIL BAT : Bela Lugosi's film carrier had changed for the worse by the end of his time with Universal studios and his start with his Skid-Row horror phase at the start of 1940's. Lugosi would continue to star in these skid row films before having a minor notable final film phase when he started staring Ed Wood films in the 1950's. The Devil Bat is one of Lugosi's very first Skid -Row films were he plays a nice and charming foreign doctor who is secretly mad and commits a horrific experiment which leads to a small town being terrorised by a huge rubber Bat, but Lugosi mad plans will soon be stopped by one red blooded American journalist who will soon rescue his gal. After seeing a tone of other Lugosi-Skid-Row-Spook-o-rama horror films, I've noticed its Lugosi that makes these sorts of film mildly entertaining. Lugosi put himself 150% behind all of his roles an in Devil Bat it's no different, it's terribly campy and mildly amusing to see a giant rubber bat and the brilliant performance of Lugosi makes this monochrome mess entertaining. 5/10
