This story follows a teenage rock hopper penguin named Cody Maverick from his hometown of Shiverpool, Antarctica, where all of the other penguins think he's nothing but a surfing fool, to the "Big Z Memorial Surf Off" on Pen Gu Island. Young Cody is determined to win the most important competition in the world of penguin surfing in honor of "Big Z," a deceased surfing legend whom he has idolized since childhood. But the waves in Pen Gu are different than in Shiverpool, and the competition is steep. The current champ, egotistical Tank Evans, isn't just about to let this little penguin knock him from first place without a fight. When Cody wipes out and encounters Geek, a recluse aging former surfer, living in the jungle, he learns some important lessons about life and surfing, and even teaches Geek a thing or two. .

(us) wrote: another solid movie from tim sullivan who also directed 2001 maniacs. this time though he throws out a great drama/ghost film. great ghost movie with pretty much no flaws to be found, really well written and very enjoyable. can't recommend this movie to the die hard horror fans though for the fact that there's not a lot of action or any gore to be found. but if your a fan of ghost movie then you should definitely give this one a look!

(nl) wrote: One of Moores best dramatic roles. Skrsgard also gives an excellent performance in a supporting role. Much of the movie is spent with the viewer wondering which reality is real and which is her dream, but at no point is this laboured. Touching conclusion.
(de) wrote: Simply, a love letter to movie fans worldwide. Witty and self-parody of its own genre, it's the "Scream" of action films. Arnie is at his charismatic cardboard cutout best with a great villainous performance from Charles Dance. I find little to be repulse at this film the way other people see it. I find it as a great wacky fun ride.

(es) wrote: Unlike the two previous Dracula movies, this last one (the later two are not really even worth mentioning) allows Christopher Lee to act and gives him real dialogue. He appears really diabolical, and this is the strongest point in the whole movie. Just see his face when he takes revenge on his servant, preparing to burn his skin with a hot blade taken from the fireplace. Really, this film reminds one after the films with one or two lines by the count, that Lee is a great actor. His count in this film is also very different from the other two in that he is almost humanlike: civilized yet brutal, hiding his demonic nature under the cloak of decency. This movie has considerably more violence and other elements which make it different from the earlier Dracula movies: there are people stabbed, staked, mauled. The violence is uncensored and graphic. It is not too much, though. But there are two elements which sort of make this movie lose its glimmer. First, the bats. Oh, dear. It looks like the vampire bats are being hung from a rope, bouncing in a silly manner up and down like balls on a tennis court. Enough changes in plot, the characters develop from start to finish. The story does not stand still, and there is enough tension and action. Unfortunately there is a bit of repetition in storytelling. People have the door shown and shut on their face. Then again. And again. You know the drill after a few takes. Its pretty much fun thought, and the film has a similarity to the first two Dracula films starring Lee in its style, especially harkening back to the first movie in style when one gets into the castle. The DVD features a commentary track by the director and Christopher Lee. This time there are no candeliers thrown about, nor bad jokes. This time it would be the real thing. We even see the count climbing the wall of his castle in a spiderlike manner, like decades later in Coppola's epic and in Stoker's book. Its all well done.. except that the filmmakers money apparently ran out and the film ends really silly looking manner. And there comes the second and the worst bad point, the way the film ends. Count Dracula's death scene is sudden, surprising, and altogether not at all believable when you think about it for a moment..besides, the sound effect and the falling down of a dummy is also badly done. A sound effect of a scream is repeated from a tape device in a sequence but eveyone can hear that the sound is the same one, just repeated over and over, as an unmoving doll or dummy figure is "dying", not moving its limbs or anything. This is just so badly done, that it is in a revolting contrast to the successful style of the movie until the end and the great acting. After seeing Christopher Lee's truly super impressive and menacing performance, one might live with a few crazy bats - but not with a silly dummy of the count and a few odd screams from a tape machine. Did they ever film this movie's ending in another way? Oh dear. Someone should in retrospect create an alternative ending to this movie, because this one deserves such. As it is, without the oddball ending and without the bats and with more story depth, it might have been nearly a five star movie. With the bats and the ending and all the goofyness.. why oh why not use a stunt double or something. There is nothing sillyer than a dummy thrown down off a cliff, accompanied by a few tape recorded screams of a lady. The leading actress is really pretty and that pretty much saves a lot by her feminine grace. So three stars.

(de) wrote: It had been many years since I'd last seen this Hitchcock classic, so it was nice to revisit it. In my opinion, Grace Kelly was one of the all-time most beautiful actresses, so I could watch her in just about anything, but watching her in a Hitchcock film is a special treat. This one is typical Hitch, and is highly entertaining. Definitely worth a watch!
(de) wrote: Action film from 1988 that launched the Hollywood film career of its star man Bruce Willis. An acting career which until that time mainly involved US television shows. Moonlighting springs to mind.Willis plays New York detective John McClane who visits his estranged wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia) at Christmas time at her place of employment Nakatomi Plaza, a skyscraper HQ for the Nakatomi Corporation.Whilst visiting the building just happens to come under attack by a ruthless gang of terrorists led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman).Rickman is excellent as the villain Gruber. I was reminded of his excellence by seeing an image of him falling to his death from the 30th floor of the building a few days ago. An iconic Christmas moment!Rickman would revel his villainous role snd go onto similar as The Sheriff Of Nottingham in 1991s Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves.It is Willis who steals the movie with his never say die attitude whilst half undressed. Barefoot and vested. Even he remarks it is better than being caught with your pants down.Whatever happened to Bonnie Bedelia. I think she starred in 1990s Die Hard 2 and that's it?The skyscraper holds millions of dollars in bonds in its vault hence the thieving terrorist angle.Willis has a full head of his own hair. It was 1988!Excellent caper.

Animal smugglers kidnap Blu and Jewel, but the pair soon escape and begin a perilous adventure back to freedom -- and Linda.Let's face it. Kids movies---specifically animated kids movies---are extremely successful and profitable right now. Pixar OWNS the title of Most Profitable Animation Studio. No other animated studio has come close to churning out hit after hit like Pixar. So naturally, all other animation houses are trying to copy Pixar's success. This film represents one of the better attempts. A cute kid flick, "Rio" tells the story of a domesticated macaw's return to the popular Brazilian city and its surrounding rainforest. It's a fun film, full of characters and situations that kids are sure to fall in love with. Four out of five stars.
