The Christmas Star

The Christmas Star

Horace McNickle (Edward Asner) is a two-time felon serving prison time for counterfeiting. On the week before Christmas, he escapes from prison dressed as Santa Claus due to his uncanny resemblence to St. Nick resulting from his long white beard and heavyset features. McNickle hides out from the police in a nearby suburban neighborhood where he is befriended and helped by two local children who think he is the real Santa Claus. McNickle takes advantage of the kids naive ness to help him get his counterfeit money hidden somewhere in a local department store while he develops kind-hearted feelings for his two con victims that make him slowly understand the true nature of Christmas.

The Christmas Star torrent reviews

David P (br) wrote: Nolan tries too hard to avoid the comic book aspects of the series and it's often what makes the worst parts of his Batman films. He really tried hard to do that with this one. Even though liked the Bane character a lot in this film, I never cared for these more obscure characters in the series. Was Nolan that afraid of doing the Riddler or the Penguin? He couldn't have a costumed Robin? Why so little with the Catwoman character?It may be true to the comic books, the plot just seemed too apocalyptic for Batman. Maybe I am too simple, but I just want Batman to have exciting story where he goes after classics villains like Joker, Penguin, Riddles, etc. That's what work in the 1960s. That basic premise minus the camp, is what works best. Even Tim Burton didn't quite master that, but he got by much better than Nolan I think overall. Especially, those complaining Batman Returns was too dark, Rises was by far the darkest yet. Overall, I liked enough of Dark Knight Rises to sit through it, but I am not too eager to want again.

Jim C (es) wrote: I would give this movie 6 stars just for the casting alone, if that were possible. Any film that has Emile Hirsch in it is going to be among my favorites, but add Sigourney Weaver, Jeff Daniels, and the awe-inspiringly-beautiful Ryan Donowho and it's going to be...well, right where it is, in my top 3 films.There is no finer young actor, and damned few older, than Emile Hirsch. If you haven't seen 'Into The Wild', you really, really ought to. It takes a once-in-a-generation actor to pull off Emile's performance in that movie.But as for 'Imaginary Heroes', it too will go into my list of movies I'd want if I were stranded on another planet. The kiss scene with Ryan Donowho alone could burn into my TV and I'd be just fine with that. Their interplay was dead on, and I suppose the fact that they wrote and performed a song together in the film says something about their artistic relationship and talent. I love this film.

Robert H (ru) wrote: Horror does Canada proud yet again with this tale of furry full moon antics with a female twist.Emily Perkins and Katharine Isabelle are perfect in their roles. The practical FX are top notch not only in the film but in the film within the film as well!Of course, much praise has already been given to the story and the writing behind Ginger Snaps so I'm not going to continue beating a dead wolf but it is what makes this film (in conjuction with everything else) truly stand out from the crowd.Highly recommended

Jeff B (br) wrote: They should have called it "Love Crappy" because that would have been funnier than any of the "jokes" in this. Seriously, Groucho acts as narrator only until the last 20 minutes of the movie when he actually shows up. Most of the film involves Madame Egelichi's love story with Harpo... yes, Harpo, who can't freaking talk dominates most of the movie. Also, there's a bunch of dance numbers/women prancing around, but it's not funny nor entertaining. This movie sucks.

John M (br) wrote: Bad movies are funny for different reasons, and Basket Case is a low-budget horror oddity that derives humor from interesting and unexpected places. The film tells the story of a young man taking his separated conjoined twin to New York City in a wicker basket with the purpose of tracking down and killing the doctors that performed the non-consensual surgery. The taller brother looks like he should answer a casting call for The Greatest American Hero, and the shorter, less attractive brother is in need of a good orthodontist and completing the gestational process. The consistent presence of wisecracking NYC residents keeps the mood light, and director Frank Henenlotter's inclusion of a man running naked through the streets of New York and a woman getting sexually assaulted and murdered by an amorphous blob proves Basket Case has a little something for everyone. Endlessly whacky and never boring, Basket Case certainly earned its reputation as a minor classic.

Ramon S (jp) wrote: "She's a hard 10. You're a 5, maybe a 6."She's Out of Your League is a gut-bustingly hilarious movie with no shortage of laughs which will make you roll-over and cry, thanks to the talented supporting cast which is made up of Krysten Ritter, TJ Miller, Mike Vogel and Nate Miller, who all provide the comedic backbone of the movie.The movie starts off well enough, with some really memorable comedic set pieces accenting the movie throughout it's first two acts, and a really strong message about identity and self-esteem, which is set-up quite nicely. The movie begins to show the makings of a classic! It's just a shame then that, as the movie goes on, it loses steam, failing too provide new opportunities for conflict or danger, and eventually, just diverging into an outright cliche rom-com with an ending that wraps up the character arcs way too nicely (and conveniently) and even worse: it's been done a MILLION times.All-in-all, a GOOD movie with some GREAT laughs in-between which could've been an instant CLASSIC, had it not botched the last act.
