An all-Irish cast (including Donal McCann, Rachael Dowling and Colm Meaney) lends authenticity and gravitas to director John Huston's final film, an elegiac take on a short story by James Joyce (from The Dubliners). After a convivial holiday dinner party (circa 1904), things begin to unravel when a husband and wife address some prickly issues concerning their marriage. The movie stars Huston's daughter, Anjelica, and was scripted by his son, Tony.

(ca) wrote: Now, as of late this lazy, obese cat has gained a lot popularity as of late. Just recently he has craned out 3 new straight to DVD movies, and a new tv series on Cartoon Network. Now there are three new movies that were recently released. The first is 'Garfield Gets Real', which is the topic of this review. The second is called 'Garfield's Fun Fest', which was unspeakably awful, and don't get me wrong, I REALLY wanted to review Fun Fest, it would have been a great review, but I can't due to circumstances beyond my control. Then, one day while looking through a local Blockbuster I saw the DVD cover of the third move, "Garfield's Pet Force". I stared at the cover of the DVD, laughed my ass off at how ridiculously stupid it looks and walked away, and I never saw it. Well, because I can't review Fun Fest, I'll do the next best thing: Garfield Gets Real. Anyway, the movie involves Garfield [voiced by the god of cartoon voices Jim Cummings.] and Odie [voiced by Greg Berger] getting readyto go to work. WAIT WHAT? Garfield and Odie go to work? Aren't they just pets? Well, instead of the usual Garfield universe [I'll try my best to explain this, 'cause its really complicated] Garfield lives in a universe where all comic strip characters live. Basically, its their daily job to 'film comic strips' and ship them tonewspapers around the world. I have to admit, that's mildly creative, but, well, let's keep going. Garfield is depressed because he's sick of being in a comic strip, WHAT?!?! Dude, you have an awesome job! You don't have to pay taxes, do homework, or anything, just walk in, take a few picture, grab a giant paycheck and walk out! Well, when Garfield gets to work [accompioned by Odie and Jon] we meet the other comic strip characters. Calvin and Hobbs? NO! Pearls Before Swine? NO! The Buckets? NO! Instead we get a group of characters from unreal comic strips. First off there is Billy Bear and Randy Rabbit. A talking bear and a talking rabbit...let's hear it for origionality. So, yeah, after a comic if filmed [which takes about all of 45 seconds of a day, so I can't see why Garfield is whining], it is sucked into a portal to the 'real world' so he can expierence it. Sadly, Garfiled can't find a way back inAd if he can't get back in time, his comic strip will be dscontinued. When this movie isn't being boring, it's being silly, due to its stupidity. All I can say is its time the fat cat put something back: this movie in the garbage.

Mark Steven Grove, you and your crew of flunkies accomplished unintentionally making me laugh, but... you'll never work in this town again.

There were some moments that were poorly transferred from the stage to the screen (such as "The Swamps of Home"), but this is a movie I would gladly show to my children. It has a solid moral, without resorting to restrictive gender norms or homophobia. Moreover, one of our heros is an unwed pregnant woman. The movie is quite fun.

(kr) wrote: The Nazis concieve a brutal public relations gimmick (based on a true story): if the world is truly so concerned about the plight of Jews in wartime Germany, how about this? They release a boatload of the condemned buggers and wait to see who embraces the lot. And guess what? No one does. Played as a typical 70's style, all star gathering of international talent it's actually better than it looks with some unexpected surprises, like Orson Welles as a dishonest Cuban politico and Kate Ross as a Jewish prostitute in Havana. Worth a look.

(de) wrote: War time patriotism crosses with Sherlock Holmes in this movie based on Doyle's character, although not any of his stories. Rathbone makes a great Holmes but Nigel Bruce played Watson a bit too dim witted. Not a bad movie but it felt too much like it was trying to be a Holmes story instead of being one.
