(nl) wrote: This Canadian film is a light hearted attempt at the anti-RomCom. Seen from the male perspective, lovable Leo, whose ex wife has recently become famous by blogging about him and why he sucks, falls in love with his new dream girl on her wedding day. Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) plays Leo with all lovable charm, and the scenery of Alberta (pretending to be Colorado) is beautifully lensed.

For those who are unfamiliar with Wag the Dog, it is about a political spin doctor who is brought in to help the president avoid a scandal. The particular event of impropriety is so bad that they decide a big distraction is necessary, so they call in a movie producer to help them stage news footage that will simulate a war. Now this movie is from the days when DeNiro was still trying instead of simply cashing paychecks, so he's really doing good work with his characterization. There are also a large number of other big names you'd recognize who add to the humor. But the big highlight of this film is Dustin Hoffman as an over-the-top film producer. I love how he talks about every problem as if it was insignificant and then compares it to issues he had when filming movies in the past. I also thought it was fun that, while everything that is happening in the movie revolves around the president, they never show his face on screen. I really do think the concept of Wag the Dog is humorous, yet it rang a little too true and I wasn't laughing like I expected. I'm not a big fan of politics anyways, and I'm pretty much fed up with this election year already, so watching a film about manipulating voters wasn't enjoyable for me. Still, I see the genius in the concept and I can totally see why some people would find this to be a ton of fun.

(gb) wrote: The sequel to 'Tarzan The Ape Man' is considered the best of Johnny Weissmuller's Tarzan movies. It's a rehash of the first movie but with a larger budget and more skin than all the other Tarzan movies put together (not counting Bo Derek's remake). Instead of lots of stock footage they have lots of black extras in the background of the opening scenes. Some of them are women casually wondering around topless. Jane wears a leather outfit totally open on the sides. The DVD includes an infamous nude swimming scene that was cut out in 1934. The movie is too slow at the beginning. They take too long to get to Tarzan and Jane. Every time Jane wanders off alone some animal attacks her and Tarzan comes to the rescue and wrestles the animal and stabs it to death. Then Tarzan who kills animals with his knife is offended when the great white hunters want to carry off a bunch of elephant tusks from long dead elephants. Tarzan is the first animal rights activist. Tarzan is almost superhuman in this movie. He wrestles a crocodile that's bigger than any living crocodile. Some of the best lion wrestling scenes are in this movie. After this movie the series got more juvenile which I liked when I was a kid and they showed these movies on Saturday afternoon TV.

(kr) wrote: I could never love someone who watched this movie & didn't appreciate it. I don't think they could make a movie like this today. Absolutely loved it. It had everything you want from a movie. Suspense, drama, pathos, humour, realism, great writing, great music, great acting. Neither side is portrayed as necessarily good or evil. Every position was made to seem understandable. Presents the nuances & intricacies of getting into war in a very compelling way. Stewart, as always, is so good. So effortless. Mule was one of the worst villains I've ever seen, despite only minutes of screen time. The deaths were devastating. Truly showed the tragic nature of war. If someone wanted to understand me, they should probably look no further than this film. It suffers the slightest bit, however. Some of the drama lacks a little pacing. But still it affects enough to impact the viewer. I don't think the ending was as big & as powerful as it could have been. Nor was the families return home. Seemed a bit scurried. The one drawback. As for the boomer critics, I am so sick of them viewing everything through the prism of (LBJ's) Vietnam & their self-professed glory days. This is hardly an anti-war film. It conveys the apprehensions & concerns that any family would have on any side regarding loved ones going into battle & the weighty reasoning of concluding so. You'll note that one of the reasons Stewart wante dto mind his own business was because he was a family man first, not someone who felt that government should control the domicile & decisions of which causes to partake in. Yet these boomers are now the very ones who want government to be involved in every aspect of one's life. And the one thing the critics miss more than anything... they GO to war in the end! At some point it becomes necessary for them to stave off the Yankees. They don't join self-righteous hippie protests. That's the difference. Away with that idiotic anti-war talk.
