The most popular was the big budget dud The Lawnmower Man but on a much smaller scale there were such films as Evolver and of course Full Moon's Arcade. All I have to say is if 3-D effects are going to be the main attraction of your film, you better make sure they are good!The script written future heavy weight Hollywood writer David S. Goyer is very simple. It's about a new Virtual Reality game that's getting a test run at a small arcade. After trying it out, a handful of teens are given a portable take home version, however the game artificial intelligence grows and it ends up making some of the teens drool and then disappear. Two of our teens figure what's happening and decide to shut the game down at the source... by playing it.The plot is insanely predicable and director Albert Pyun seems at odds directing a film that doesn't take place in a bleak future or include cyborgs. Overall the film felt very kiddish which is strange for Full Moon as they should have produced this under their family friendly sister company Moonbeam Entertainment. It just lacks in every department and it failed to deliver any of the cheesy Full Moon goodness I expect in their B-movie outings. No violence, no cool characters, no funny on-liners, and piss poor directing. To top it off the computer generated effects for the video game are insanely awful! I understand this came out in 1993 but these graphics even sucked back in those days.It might just be me but it seems every movie about a virtual reality video game sucks and it still boggles my mind that Arcade is one of Full Moon's most popular films. It must be the nostalgia for viewers that saw the film as a kid because this is easily one of my least favorite's from the company out of their "classic" era of films. What's ironic is that I own 2, count 'em 2 copies of this turd on DVD. Why do I own 2? Well I got one in a box set entitled "Full Moon Classics Volume One" and another in a box set entitled "Full Moon Features: The Archive Collection." I can't sell one of them because that would ruin the box set... so there they sit, both of 'em, doomed to collect dust on my DVD shelf for the rest of my short life.

It has the girl that likes the boy and the boy that likes the girl. The girl, Samantha Baker (Molly Ringwald), has a crush on the boy, Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling), but he's the hot senior and a popular jock who also just so happens to be dating one of the most popular girls in school, played by Haviland Morris. How on earth could he ever notice the quiet little underclassman, let alone like her back?Ringwald does a fantastic job of playing Samantha in the way that she really digs deep into the emotions that a sixteen year old girl would feel if her whole family forgot about her birthday. Schoeffling also does a pretty good job of playing Jake, the heartfelt popular jock, he made the audience feel like they were the one that he was falling for. The chemistry between the two actors, when they were acting together, was great. When there was an awkward scene they made the audience feel the awkwardness, such as when they were standing near each other but don't make eye contact. Imagine that you're alone in a room with the person you like, both of you are aware of the situation. Not only do they know that you like them, but they don't like you back. So now you both are just standing there, alone, silent and uncomfortable. This is about the level of discomfort that the two actors make you feel.16 Candles was made back in 1984, acting back in the 80's was far more corny compared to acting nowadays. The majority of the jokes were funny, but we've all heard them before. Could the cast members have made the overall movie better by themselves? Yes, I think the did a great job of doing so! The dialog had quite a familiar tune to it, the baseline for all classic chick flicks, however the way that the actors said the words made it more bearable. For example, instead of just saying their lines without or with little emotion they poured their hearts out into it and made it feel real to the audience watching. Even though the movie's plot is not original and the acting is not the greatest, I still find that the movie was decently entertaining. I could predict the general plot line for the majority of the movie but there were random elements of surprise. There was also quite a few times where the f word and other swear words were used, so I would not recommend anyone not mature enough to handle such language.Just because the movie might tend to be a tad bit predictable at times, the film overall is pretty great. It is a fun flick to watch on a Friday night with all your girlfriends eating popcorn and talking about whatever you guys have planned for the weekend. The next time you are looking for a movie to watch, don't spend thirty minutes scrolling through all the movies on Netflix, it's an easy choice, just watch 16 Candles.
(fr) wrote: The very American Moral vehicle for Frank Capra and all in all not a bad film at all.The simple story of Megan Davis (Barbara Stanwyck) a missionary caught up in Shanghai's Civil War & her capture and somewhat forced time at General Yen fortress.Basically a film presenting two very different moral & traditions and there difficulty understanding each other etc.An interesting film in parts but a little static in other ending was a little flat but both performances of General Yen & Megan Davies was great.
