Gunnery Sergeant Jim Moore is one of the toughest Drill Instructors on Parris Island. But he's got a thorn in his side: Pvt. Owens, who always seems to foul up when the pressure's on. Convinced that "there's a man underneath that baby powder," Sgt. Moore drives Owens to the point of desertion. Making things worse, Capt. Anderson has given Moore three days to make the scared private into Marine material, "or I'll personally cut the lace off his panties and ship him out!" Adding to the pressure, Moore also juggles a budding romance with a shop girl.

(it) wrote: A really heartbreaking story. Nothing I say will do it justice. Just watch it.
(gb) wrote: An excellent, very low budget black comedy that pays homage to the old Ealing comedies. Great
(gb) wrote: After a couple of so-so movies with my favourite cartoon cat, this movie started the evolution of the 3D Garfield in the right direction. Sets up The Garfield Show, and Garfield's Pet Force for content. Comic strips, Garfield and Friends, and Garfield Cat Tales is still the gold standard.

(gb) wrote: This is one of the better of the classic war movies of that time that dosent involve generals and huge battles, like Battle of the Bulge, The Longest Day, and A Bridge too Far which are my favorite classics. Like other similar movies of the time, it involves some of the common clich (C)s that are used in movies like The Dirty Dozen, and The Guns of Navarone, neither of which I liked. But Hell is for Heros got it right. It didn't over do the clich (C)s, was interesting, and there isn't a lot of combat. There's few people to keep track of, which I like, but it features the typical American hero, which every movie of the time had, so it can't be accused for it. The acting pretty standard, the script is too, but it's in effects that it stands out, both good and bad. The explosions are very good, real and massive, with the occasional camera shaking standing out. The sound effects are kinda all over the place, the battle sounds are quieter than any talking, and the talking sometimes gets really loud of quiet. This is an anoyance, and I know it's not my TV or disc. Good movie, some problems, but good.
(gb) wrote: Super. In the middle it turned slightly avant garde. At first I thought the censors had snipped out something. Then scenes started repeating, and I later realized they were depicting the repetitiveness of routine; ie. Ranbir's character wakes up, puts on a tie in front of his mirror, wipes his car window, sets off for work, etc. His character Ved aka Don is well written, and even more well-executed! Tamasha's message is one of Self-Actualization, something I also seek and prioritize in life. ''Good Morning sir, is my tie ok now, sir?" (like hello?!) Spending years and years in the Corporate world where conforming is rewarded and individuality is smirked at, I realized I have suppressed much. Sometimes I forget who Edmund is. Sometimes I'm still discovering. And last night as I drove home thinking about this movie, I imagined myself digging hard through the layers of suppressed identity, yelling to myself, "Hello, hello, are you still in there somewhere?". And other times, when I'm Laughing-Out-Loud with my friends, I'm reminded that he's still inside there, and that it's never too late to become myself. Go see Tamasha :)
(es) wrote: This movie was very far ahead of it's time as far as war movies go. The cinematography of the older war movie just can't be beat due to the possibilities of splicing in actual documentary footage with the shots, Flying Leathernecks does a marvelous job doing just that. The acting is superb throughout, the script flows beautifully and the plot is right on! A MUST SEE for all war movie buffs!
(fr) wrote: TOKYO JOE was the first film allowed to be made in post-war Japan...but I thought it was a missed opportunity when Bogart's production company, SANTANA PICTURES decided not to film the entire production there (in very much the same way that THE BIG LIFT was filmed entirely in post-war Berlin and utilized the services of UFA studios). Having scenes of Humphrey Bogart walking around post-war Tokyo could have lent an added touch of authenticity and maybe raise this above it's present reputation as a wannabe CASABLANCA. Bogart here plays Joe Barrett, a veteran returning to Tokyo where he once ran a successful nightclub called Tokyo Joe's. Barrett finds his establishment surprisingly still in one piece and in the hands of his japanese partner Ito (Teru Shimada). Barrett hopes to bring Tokyo Joe's back to it's former pre-war glory - if he can but overcome the bureaucracy of the occupation force and get the necessary permits. With only a 60 day visitor's visa, Barrett is pessimistic about regaining his business in time ...unless he can gain the aid of japanese underworld figure, Baron Shimada (Sessue Hayakawa) who has the connections to cut through the red tape...but at a high cost to Barrett (of course). In return, Baron Shimada wants Barrett to head a bogus air freight company for him - the purpose of which is to ultimately smuggle in underworld figures from Korea to foment unrest and destabilize the occupation government in japan. Complicating the matter is Barrett was once married to a russian woman, Trina (Florence Marly) who happened to be the torch singer for his nightclub. For reasons unexplained, Barrett had to leave Japan just prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor, which cuts him off from his wife - and is the biggest loophole I see with this story. I just can't fathom that Barrett had the foresight to leave his business in the hands of his partner, yet decide to leave his wife behind. Not with war clouds on the horizon. Barrett believes his wife died during the war. Ito tells him otherwise. Not only is she alive...but now married to one of the occupation force's top lawyer, Mark Landis (Alexander Knox). But Baron Shimada also knows a secret about Trina - which he plans to use for blackmail. Bogart's presence is what really makes this film more entertaining. His Barrett may not be as charismatic a character as Rick from CASABLANCA, but he's a bit more hard-edged here, IMO. Sessue Hayakawa never really lost his strong japanese accent despite living and being a big star in the USA during the silent era. His english is at times very hard to understand. Baron Shimada could have been written to be a bit more menacing and would have kicked things up a notch... The plot really had all the ingredients to be a top notch adventure/drama IMO. A missed opportunity also to show what it was like living in post-war Tokyo - during the US occupation as previously mentioned. Maybe with a bit more touch up on the script...? If only. 7 / 10
(jp) wrote: Horrendous creature feature that rivals the quality of Ed Wood's worst (or should that be best?) efforts, this piece of crap is too unintentionally funny to be ignored! It's amusing to watch a cast of talentless try-hards, vying for the "Worst Actor of All Time" award, as they plot to rescue the world from an oversized shark and octopus who battle it out underwater. And, in a highlight of lunacy, not only do members of the cast stop to quote Shakespeare, but the shark breaks the surface to devour an aeroplane! Beer, pizza, with a touch of Vic Chao's laugh-out-loud bad performance, and you've got a perfect night in.
