It's like American History with 3 chapters from Washington until Bush Jr, and then two more about the 2000's. You're better off watching the old "Icons" series from G4--or the magnificent "The Video Game Years" on Retroware TV on YouTube now. This is embarrassing. It's rushed and rudimentary, and it's largely uninteresting to the audience it targets. And it advances to modern gaming WAY too quickly. The last two generations of gaming are more present than history. We don't need to hear about modern gaming. So much more to say about the past. This was like a rushed high school book report done by some kid who had no real interest in the topic at hand. Embarrassing.

Bill R (br) wrote: being a hellraiser title I expected more. there was more cop and seriel killer than anything to do with hellraiser. sure you see cenobiyes but later you are lead to believe that he is making it all up and doesn't fit into anything that is hellraiser. it has some horror aspects bit nothing major. can defiantly tell the toned down budget.

Darrin C (ag) wrote: I genuinely liked it. Very supernatural and suspenseful with plenty of crazies. Made well with some eerie points and a satisfying ending.

Private Benjamin is a good film because it breaks away from the expected 80's storyline and provides more than a few surprises. The similarities in the mannerisms and facial expressions of Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson (mother and daughter) are eerie. The film's highlight is Eileen Brennan (Mrs. Peacock from "Clue", amidst an impressive Hollywood resume) as the role must have been written for her. Much of the movie is fluff but Goldie Hawn is endearing and worth the watch.
Eric H (ca) wrote: The cinematography is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen, with a stunning recreation of a period. The story is fantastic, with a gorgeous Alida Valli in the top of her beauty, and Farley Granger splendid as a scum lover. Senso is a gorgeous film which requires patience and love from its viewer. It's a political, ironic, revolutionary and aesthetic film. Truly one of the biggest landmarks in Visconti's career but also in the history of Italian cinema.
