(nl) wrote: Helena Bonham Carter is delightful in this. I love how her character is so random, optimistic, whimsical and full of life. I want a friend like her character in this movie. I love the side that she brings out in Guy's character, for he seems to become alive when around her. (can you blame him?) They're both lovely actors and had a great connection in this. Their romance was divine & innocent & I adored it. I love how they could just be around each other & be happy in those moments, doing simple things together. That's true love. It's heartbreaking that "Sam" has to lose "Ruby" twice. I didn't want to see their bliss come to an end. The ending was slightly unclear to me, when "Ruby" disappeared & then "Sam" floated away in that canoe. Was he still alive or was he also going to die and then join his one true love in the afterlife? I wasn't quite sure...But I do know that these two should never be apart. Their romance & love is far too beautiful. There's a scene with "Ruby's" father when he's speaking to young "Sam" when he says, "Most people like to hide from things. That retards the growth of the spirit, and pretty soon their mortal ears can't hear the soul flapping its wings, wanting to fly in the face of life. To dare! You understand? Well, you'll never be quite alive until you do." I LOVE that & it speaks wonders to me--I couldn't agree more. Beautiful quote, beautiful romance, beautiful story.

(br) wrote: This suspense thriller from 1972 is anything but suspenseful or thrilling. Tom Selleck (who I swear must have come out of the womb already mustachioed, hairy-chested and over six feet tall) is an art buyer for a museum living in the Philippines who finds a painting of witches being burned at the stake that he oddly takes a liking to when he notices the resemblance between his wife and one of the witches. He brings the painting home and it puts in motion some weird prophecy where his wife is destined to be one of the daughters of Satan. Ho hum.This is supposed to be a suspense thriller, but the thrills are anything but. Probably the most exciting moment of the movie is when Tom Selleck is being chased by a skinny knife-wielding Phillippino man who Tom Selleck attempts to thwart by tossing barrels at him. I think that does have the makings of a great 8-bit video game. Help the skinny knife-wielding Phillippino man dodge the flying barrels! Get to level 10 and you get to stab Tom Selleck for the win! That would be an awesome game.Anyway, this movie is deadly dull and boring and I had a difficult time not falling asleep during it. It's one of those movies where you wonder how it got past the development stages, never mind how it went into production. Props to Tom Selleck though, for making a clunker like this but still managing to have a successful career afterward.
(gb) wrote: Tuesday, October 30, 2012 (1965) King Rat WAR/ DRAMA/ COMEDY Based on a novel written by James Clavell, directed and adapted for the screenplay by Bryan Forbes which centers on a particular Japanese concentration camp during WWII called "Chang-Chi" located somewhere in Singapore and is not like any other camp since it is unescapable, allowing Japanese soldiers to provide few food rations as well as medical supplies. And by looking at the title, it appears to look like another movie about 'snitching' or 'stool pigeon' like "Stalag 17" made in 1953 which is further from the truth- for it is another "surivial of the fittest" film. The first title of the film centers on the George Segal character whom his fellow bunkmen call "the King" to which he uses manipulation in order to survive without breaking any Geneva Convention rules and it starts upon escorting an Englishman to the group since he can speak a second language. The second title "Rat" is the animal he used to make money from. This is not like any other concentration film ever made for it's more closer to a "feel good" prison film which the protagonist is somebody one can root for. There are two very entertaining scenes regarding their first good meal and getting into the "rat business" for people who have seen and liked this film would know what I'm referring about. 3.5 out of 4 stars

Monroe is basically transposed from the 50s into the wild west of old, with no concessions made to costume or ... well, reality, really. One of those nonsensical films from the era which didn't really survive the test of time.

When Beca leads this a cappella singing group out of their traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, they fight to climb their way to the top of college music competitions.A cross between 'Bring It On,' 'Mean Girls,' and 'Glee,' 'Pitch Perfect' is one of the funniest comedies I've seen in a long time! I can't say enough good things about this charming film. I was afraid it would turn into a Glee-like songfest, but it instead showed me something I wasn't expecting to see - heart. Fabulous performances by Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, and the rest of the cast, but the actress who absolutely steals the show is comedienne Rebel Wilson as "Fat Amy." SNL, sign this girl up ASAP! Infused with energy, wit, and incredible comedic timing to make it laugh out loud funny---'Pitch Perfect' has it all! Two thumbs way, way up!
