(kr) wrote: Okay, I have absolutely zero problem with a black Jesus. However, this has got to be one of the worst Jesus movies I've ever seen. Considering it was put out by a Christian company, it's frustrating for me to say that. First of all, challenging the status quo should not involve some monologue and some varient of "But he's Black!" or "Do you think it's because he's black?" And the way the dialogue is delivered is almost as the bad punchline to a racial joke. Speaking of dialogue, I don't think I really dig how this entire play was written. Okay, first of all, you have Mary Magdaline and Judas interacting (and not in the way that you'd expect or the way that is plausible. First she slaps him one minute and then... What the...??? Mary Magdaline just... erm... struck me as someone going through mood swings.And then there's Jesus. Jesus is apparantly a black Nazarene. Fine. But is it necessary to have Jesus acting like a wuss?? And is it necessary to have me cring (not because of what he went through but because of the acting...) due to the Gethsemane scene. And then he comes back and yells at Peter about getting nothing but excuses. Again, "What The...?" And Peter's response? Hangs his head and looks sad. Erm... If Jesus actually did that (And I really doubt he did.) it would have probably resulted in a shouting match. Peter was a Fisherman, we know he had a few choice words for the person accusing him of being a Nazarene.The cinematography is about the only decent thing I have to say about this film. Considering the budget (which I suspect was low) I think that what they got was pretty good, though some of the props left me telling exactly what they're made of and some of the cuts were just... odd. All in all, I can't really recommend this film to much of anyone. The history is a very tough fit from a racial standpoint. But that being said, some of the stuff left me going, "And you did your research for this film?"

(ca) wrote: This movie about a music video director's struggles with his love life and the studio execs backing his 1st real film is decent, despite some scenes that don't work and the absence of charismatic actors (apart from Bono); this film is actually directed by a music video director: probably the best thing about the film is the unusual and somewhat surreal narrative, some cool stop-action/sped up urban photography and other slick visual gimmicks...

(us) wrote: An unfunny comedy that should be an embarrassment for anyone involved (except maybe James Brown; he still manages to come across cool in his climactic cameo). The acting is amaeurish, the direction non-existant, and when Aykroyd dons his pimp disguise he looks like a cross between Lon Chaney's Phantom and Truman Capote, with Elton John's wardrobe. Utterly ridiculous. Might be decent fodder for a fun bad movie night, but not much else.
(au) wrote: The wolves were waiting at the door when this film was released in 1975. Now that time has passed, and Reynolds, Shepherd and Bogdonavich no longer have huge targets on their backs, you would think perhaps a re-evaluation of this admittedly bold enterprise would be in order... Unfortunately the sad truth is this cast just can't sing or dance, and in the process truly butcher some classic Cole Porter songs. Bogdanovich directs the camera with skill, but his story is unconvincing and his script doesn't possess the wit and charm he thinks it does.

(us) wrote: You know for a low budge, cheap and chessy horror film, Tormented does pretty well. It's helped by the fact that it doesn't over complicate itself and I gotta tell ya, the special FX of the dead chick is kinda freaky, especially the talking head. And it doesn't hurt that this film has some serious babes in it. Both the socialite finacee and the dead ghost woman are hot and that may be the first and only time I refer to a dead ghost woman as hot. This film follows the same viewing guidelines as Little Shop of Horrors, so if you want to watch a non-offensive, classic low budget horror film, Tormented ain't a bad one to check out.
