Robert L (br) wrote: In my opinion, Christina Ricci is what you call an actress. You cant say that about alot of the others out there. I would love to write for movies. When writing stories I always think that 'talent' wise, when imagining females for a role, Ricci is up there with the tops. Many of her movies grab the attention of critics etc because of the 'acting', not a lip or a boob job. Ricci has never been better than in 'Lizzie Borden'. She will always be known as the girl who played in 'Casper' and Tuesday Adams from 'The Addams Family'. She will be that pale little gothic girl with the dark hair and the great big eyes. Movies like 'Black Snake Moan' and especially 'Monster' later grabbed people's attention and critics whailed over the latter. For many, maybe those two movies were too much. They were at times graphic and made you look away. Here Ricci plays a dark character like the ones in her past, only this time she is elegant and old fashionedly dressed. Ricci has never looked better than in this role. She's simply adorable. I did always picture in my mind a Lizzie Borden movie as being black and white. I think it would stay closer to the sinister images we all know and it would keep that old creepy feel of it alive. The murders in this one are sinister enough. They make you whince like the murder photos do. Its just thats its all in digital color and it slaps you with it fast. The people certainly act well and dress the part---the family, the girls, the father, etc. Modern technology just makes it seem like state of the art tech trying to look old. What movie doesn't do that today? Texas Chainsaw fell victim to the same treatment---the new trying to look old. The old version had that old, gritty, sweaty, slimy, stinky feel. The new version had this state of the art, digital look trying to show old images, like murderous houses. As for those who dont like this Borden movie, who could possibly be a better choice for Lizzie than Miss Ricci? Look at her dark/gothic career choices, plus the fact she's just adorable here. It makes it seem like "Who would do such a ghastly thing? Couldnt be little old me." In that light, she's excellent. Maybe someone like Kathy Bates would be a better fit. When you look at Borden's portrait photos and given Bates' talented movie roles, Kathy would make an excellent Borden. However, her current age may be too old for the part of young Lizzie living in a house with parents, and wouldnt we have Stephen King's Misery all over again? Cheers to Ricci and the others for what I thought was a marvelous job given todays technology. You've never been better. This is my favorite Ricci movie and am glad to have it in my hands. Fans would do well to snatch this one up quickly. For the stiff Borden buffs, what other versions do we have to go by? There's a rare 1970's Samantha from Bewitched version of Lizzie floating around on VHS somewhere that I can never locate. I'll believe it when I have it in my hands. If you're just a curious horror renter, check it out. Its quite good. It beats the hell out of the thousand takes on 'the haunting of this' or 'the paranormal of that'. And it's certainly better than 'this', part twelve.
David L (de) wrote: The Player is well acted, but everything in it is was so lifeless and boring from the plot to the characters. The film is not only immensely dull, but it also has a very confused identity to it as it never really knows what it wants to be and what genre it belongs to. It is never a great Hollywood satire film that it was supposed to be and it is one of the weakest films from one of the weakest years for film.

There are countless funny moments in this movie, no stupid gags like Scary Movie 5. The plot is creative, and I just loved it. It is currently on Netflix, it is a funny, must watch.

Panta O (it) wrote: Feel good comedy-drama with a nice story and actors like Halle Berry and James Belushi in it! Story is is loosely based on the true story of the Konawaena High School Solar Car Team, which finished 18th in the 1990 World Solar Challenge and was written by Barry Morrow, who had shared the 1988 Academy Award for Writing Original Screenplay for Rain Man. Of course, do not expect originality in this one like in The Rain Man... most of it is corny, using clichs and most of the time is very predictable! Still, you can enjoy the exciting spectacle of the race but the big positive for this movie is the attitude and the heart it has! If you want to teach your teenagers how to set aside their differences and insecurities to bond as a team - this is a right tool. This movie won't open your horizons or bring novelties but it's still uplifting experience. Light entertainment with right message.

Jake A (es) wrote: Though I do have a problem with the film that is centered on the civil rights era having no central character performed by a black actor this is still an incredible film with what is there generally being faultless. The two lead performances by Gene Hackman and Willem Dafoe are superb with Frances McDormand offering up an excellent supporting performance, the rest of the cast is solid, the script and plot deal with the nonsensical hatred and violence towards innocent black people really well, the score is solid and it looks great.
Alex B (us) wrote: Sleazy AND sublime (and amusing), a tour de force of film-making technique and Hitchcock-appropriation.
Bobby L (es) wrote: The acting is horrible. The story is painfully predictable and it watches no better than a Saturday morning teen drama. Lax fans will enjoy the lacrosse action, but it's nowhere near enough to save this film from mediocrity.
