(ag) wrote: A strangely unique movie. Seems silly for most of the film. But when you get the point everything makes sense. It has a true meaning, stronger than most of movies of our age fail to deliver. Exelent work of cinema, an absolute new experience.
(ca) wrote: The problem with making a film that looks and sounds like Confessions of a Window Cleaner is that you have to include some of the laughs that made us forget how crap those films were in the 70s. While Soulboy earns a modicum of respect for the note-perfect music, wardrobe and production design, the dialogue is clunky and the story line, while aiming at the rose-tinted nostalgia factor, laughably cliched. Tragic.

Only 4 years prior they had tried remaking a classic horror movie with the remake of Psycho but that fell flat on it?s face and it seemed that Hollywood wouldn?t try remaking classic horror movies or classic films at all ever again. But, we were wrong. They started with Japanese movies, making them American films like The Ring or The Grudge. Well, those films did very well at the box office, regardless of the fact that they were not very good. Well, if remaking Japanese films would successful what could stop them from remaking anything. All they had to do was pick a safe time of horror movies, that may have a fan following but are technically ?classic? films, like Psycho was. What better of a decade to pick than the 1970s and 1980s. In 2003 we saw the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a classic horror film, considered by many to be a classic. But, apparently Hollywood didn?t consider it a classic. From 2003 on, they just remade everything (Michael Bay is to blame for this, by the way), they didn?t care what it was. Every year we see at least 4 or 5 remakes of films considered to be horror classics. In 2005, Tim Sullivan decided to remake the 1964 Herschell Gordon Lewis film Two Thousand Maniacs!, a film that has a cult following, but not really a classic by any means. Usually I have a problem with people remaking movies, especially horror movies, but this one I had no problem with. For one simple reason, Robert Englund. I?ve been a fan of his for quite a long time, and I love to see him play characters outside of Freddy Krueger. So, when I saw him as the star of the movie, I was excited. Also, I?ve seen Two Thousand Maniacs! (you can read my review later on), and there was nothing ?classic? about the film that could or would be ruined by a new telling of a story over 40 years old. 2001 Maniacs is a telling of a group of people who get (deliberately) sidetracked into this small town run by a bunch of civil war era residents. The entire town is caught in some time warp where they still believe it?s the civil war time, even spouting out racial slurs when they see a black man and an Asian woman. But, the fun part is they brought these people to their town because they plan to kill them, and later eat them. This follows the original story very well, except in this remake they delve a little bit more into character development with the townspeople, something the Lewis version was lacking. A good reason to remake a movie like this, is to give it a more modern day twist. There are certain movies that is not a good idea for. Like remaking anything from the 1980s. It?s too soon to be remaking those types of movies. Simply saying they have better technology now to make the films better is not a good enough reason. There is no good reason to remake anything from the past 30 years. In fact, there really isn?t a good reason to remake anything at all. Would you remake Gone with the Wind? No, and they haven?t in almost 70 years. So leave classic films alone. This film is enjoyable for the simple reason of the killings. They have some interesting killings going on in this town, starting off with the best death in the movie, the girl being torn apart by horses. After that you are hooked into this movie. I?ve come to the conclusion that anything that Robert Englund does (acting wise, his directorial films have been pretty bad) is pure gold. This is a movie that you should watch with some friends, just for a good time.

Add to that some extremely over the top action sequences and a large piece of wood in the form of Weathers and there you have it, a perfect 80's action film.This film is your typical tough guy flick with the same kind of action as many many other classic films like 'Lethal Weapon' and 'Red Heat' etc...Funnily enough this film has a few main cast members from the Arnie vehicle 'Predator' with Landham and Duke alongside Weathers. Talking of the cast this film has a mega cast of stars/80's faces...Robert Davi, Thomas F. Wilson, Craig T. Nelson, Sharon Stone, Ed O Ross, Miguel A. Nunez Jr and the ultimate henchman Al Leong. Only guy missing here is Arnie himself.I gotta admit I never really liked this flick as it just seems like a big action vehicle wannabe and just can't quite compete with the real big boys. I think Weathers is coming off a hot streak of films where he wasn't the main lead so the film didn't rest entirely on his shoulders.Weathers is a good tough guy, looks good and talks the talk but I just don't think he's got enough swing to hold an entire blockbuster film all on his own. For me he works better with other big names to spar with (no pun intended) eg. 'Rocky' and 'Predator'. The same goes for the main bad guy played by T. Nelson, he's slimy but isn't quite evil or threatening enough. Overall its a slightly unimpressive outcome but that lively 80's buzz is hard to ignore. Bit of a hit n miss non event action flick in an already flooded genre at the time.

There is some dodgy acting, but Ferrara's stylish direction more than makes up for it. Obviously, not for everyone, but a fine piece of low budget filmmaking nonetheless.
(gb) wrote: The racing scenes are just spectacular. Unfortunately they're embedded in a 3 hour melodrama that's less than stellar. The film's worth watching, especially on the really spectacular Blu-Ray, but it's a tough slog at times.

(ca) wrote: One of Our Aircraft Is Missing is a propaganda movie made during World War II but one that holds up well after six decades because of the unusual choices made by Powell and Pressburger. Such as there is no phony derring do or heroics. The Dutch are the real heroes and get the job done in threatening situations, with bravery that is understated. The English crew know their lives depend on these men and women and learn quickly to do as they are told. We hardly see a German. And we never see a stereotypical ranting, raving German officer or an enlisted goon. The German threat hangs over the movie, but it is made more effective by being subtle. The bravest and most resourceful of the Dutch are the women. From Else Meertens (Pamela Brown), a schoolteacher in a small community, to Jo de Vries (Googie Withers), who plays a risky double game with the Germans and owns the fishing boats, it is the women to whom the crew owe their salvation. There is no bombastic musical score. What we hear is wind rushing by, boots marching, the creak of windmills, water lapping at a stone pier and, often, just silence. The opening and closing credits play over the roar of the plane's engines.
