(nl) wrote: I thought this movie was very cute but with a twist. It's a good rental movie. You want a romantic comedy you got one with this movie. Plus Marla is very cute and Andy Griffith is the man. I used to watch his show when I was a young boy I just can't believe how vibrant and funny his is in this movie.
(it) wrote: The review on the Blu Ray box from the San Francisco Chronicle says, " A hands down, watch it 3 times in a row masterpiece" could not be more misleading. If one likes being depressed and to have a helpless, hopeless outlook on life maybe! American Beauty, another Mendes film has about the same view of suburban life but manages to see the humor amongst the "Dead Roses". Certainly great performances all around but watch it 3 times in a row?? Hell no! Despite the tone, a very captivating film indeed.
(br) wrote: Horton the Elephant discovers the Whos, a race of people who live entirely on a speck of dust and know nothing of the outside world. His jungle friends don't believe him and turn against Horton, eventually threatening to boil the dust speck in beezlenut oil.There are at least three layers to this film. On the most superficial level, it's a cartoon featuring an elephant, some little people and a handful of catchy songs that kids and parents will love. This is what you'd get if you weren't following along at all, and you'd still have a good movie.On the next level, we have the film's core message: a person's a person, no matter how small. This is what most people will walk away with, and the intent is clear: we're all created equally. Whether Suess was focusing on race, gender, physical stature or handicap is unclear... but we get the point -- each of us is human, even if we're different.The third level is a bit convoluted and I'm not entirely sure I grasp it. The Wickersham brothers accuse Horton of trying to create civil unrest. Here we may see parallels to the events of the 1960s. The Wickersham brothers want to protect "free enterprise" and "compound interest rates" and hope to stop Horton from overthrowing the government. I'm not really sure how that relates to a dust speck... this seems a cheap attempt at attacking extreme right-wingers (such as Joseph McCarthy).So, you'll like the first and second levels... and the third one just might leave you scratching your head. Or, if you're me, liking it even more. I mean, politics is in no way foreign to Suess -- watch (or read) "The Butter Battle Book" or "The Sneeches" or "The Lorax"...

(it) wrote: Not the funniest Mel brookes movie nore his best(It's def not in the same calibur as Young Frankenstien or the Producers) but it has it's moment. IE the scene Where Mel talks about Vlad Tappish and then after describing all the grisly things he did Leslie Nielson says "hey had it coming" haha. or the scene where they stab one of the "Vampires" with a steak and GALLONS upon GALLONS of blood comes out each hit haha.but other then that it's a let down

(it) wrote: A stunning Spielberg tour de force back in 1977. Dreyfuss' classic role is the stuff of legend, as he was on a roll (no pun intended) after the iconic Jaws. A little dated today, I remember seeing this as a kid when the alien was a groundbreaking special effect. The suspenseful buildup to the dramatic ending makes for classic science fiction. Spielberg's run of blockbuster films in the 1970s and 1980s is legendary as demonstrated by this film.

(au) wrote: A walkabout is a ritual in Aboriginal culture where a boy between the ages of 10 to 16 lives off the land alone for up to six months. This explains how the Aborigine boy comes to find the White girl and boy, as these characters do not have names. How the two English siblings ended up in the harsh wilderness of the Australian Outback alone are displayed but why their father experiences a mental breakdown and tries to shoot his son with a gun is unexplained. The Aborigine then leads the two around the Outback, the girl presumes back to "civilization" but the Aborigine seems to enjoy their company too much to return them. In a very unique way, the English boy and girl are on their own walkabout, thrown into the unforgiving terrain of the desert and left to fend for themselves. This is basically the story to Nicholas Roeg's 1971 film "Walkabout."The Aborigine boy is portrayed by David Gulpilli and at the time of filming the film could not speak English. He lives in a different culture and world where he is percieved as a man. He lives off the fruits, animals and finds water in the land. The White girl is portrayed by Jenny Agutter and the White Boy is portrayed by Roeg's son Luc Roeg. After their father sets their car on fire and then shoots himself, the girl takes it upon herself to lead her and the boy for help. They're trapped in the desert and have no survival skills whatsoever. Luckily the Aborigine knows what to do and he shares his food and water with the two.This is a contrast story of two very different cultures and Roeg edits scenes in a way to compare and contrast different ideas and cultures.The Aborigine and the girl have complicated feelings for one another. The girl on the one hand wants to return home, but on the other she doesn't seem to truly trust him or understand his ways. Her younger brother is able to communicate with him through sign language and other means. The Aborigine starts to develop sexual feelings for the girl and he hopes to fornicate and perhaps that's why he never truly leads them to help.Nicholas Roeg was both cinematographer and director for the film. The film has beautiful compositions and beautiful landscapes full of animals from the Outback.

(gb) wrote: An old gangster movie that's not racist (unlike the original Scarface, for example) and that shows the "corruption" of the state, the close connections between the state and organized crime. Of course the gangsters (especially Johnny Eager) are more appealing than the "respectable" bourgeois citizens. But too bad Eager himself gets corrupted in turn, in the end, by conscience. Indeed, conscience is the movie's weakness.
