Jarett B (nl) wrote: As a film it is, well, brutal, and not because it is a mix of super-8, 15mm, and high-8, but because Jarmusch's stamp is nowhere to be found. It is like he expects The Horse to jump out of his images and attack the viewer: ain't happening. On the other hand, it's Neil, so it rocks (musically).
Andrea T (au) wrote: This film came off as very pretentious and it's quite difficult to make out exactly what you're looking at. It didn't leave a lasting impression on me at all, really. It has some disturbing and creepy aspects, but if you're looking for a more unsettling and well-put-together movie, I suggest Lynch's Eraserhead.
Andy A (fr) wrote: Thaaaaat's right. I watched a sexploitation flick and I'm going to be honest...it was mildly entertaining. I'm sure there are better examples of this underground genre but since it was available for my Netflix instant queue, how could I resist? But yeah, if you read the synopsis and even briefly scan the cover then you can just about guess where this is heading. Au naturale is almost a requisite if you acted in this film and it becomes almost casual in the way that the players get into and out of their clothes. Of course the plot is ridiculous, the acting even worse and in it's lesser moments even misogynistic, but damn if it wasn't the funniest silly-because-it's-serious movie I've seen in a long long while. Again, for those of you reading this--don't judge; we're all human and hopefully adults here, so let's hope we can at least enjoy something without giggling whenever someone utters the word "boobs". I can't say there's much allure for a female audience but, as a guy, I'm going to be honest: it was really nice to see a movie that was silicone-free for once.
Kevin S (au) wrote: I grew up with this movie, which boasts the most godawful Kong ever committed to film, so pathetic that he evokes a fair amount of sympathy. It also boasts Linda Miller, an American expat model with acting skills so poor that she had to be dubbed by another American. To tie in to the release of Peter Jackson's Kong, Universal dug *way* back into the vaults and came out with a gorgeous widescreen print. As a result, this latest cheapo DVD release looks far better than any movie this cheesy has a right to. It also has actual Japanese movie stars (Akira Takarada, Mie Hama), manly gaijin Rhodes Reason, and a gallery of familiar Toho faces in the background (yes, that was Ultraman with a mustache).But it's all great fun. Look past the zipper up Kong's back and enjoy the alternately dodgy and stunning model work, vivid colors, the beautiful Mie Hama, Mecha-Kong, and the excellent Ifukube score. A guilty pleasure, but a pleasure nonetheless.
Walter M (it) wrote: "Bhowani Junction" starts with General Savage(Stewart Granger) and Victoria Jones(Ava Gardner) having an emotional farewell at a train station in India in 1947. On the train ride to Calcutta, Savage explains to General Ackerby(Ronald Adam) how they came to be together, starting with a railroad strike when he extended her service as a WAC. The Communists use that peaceful disruption as a way of stealing a train load of dynamite. For its time, "Bhowani Junction" is a sensitive and nuanced look at India at indpendepence with a particular respect for the non-violent protests.(I remember a history teacher mentioning the trick involving the untouchables. I hope this isn't where he got it from.) Of particular interest is Govindaswami's(Marne Maitland) statement about missing the British which is beautifully dripping with sarcasm. Plus, the movie seeks to explore identity in such complicated times and even takes a couple of shots at sexism. Granted, this was made at the height of the Cold War, so of course the Communists get to be the baddies, with a couple of performances out of the Raymond Massey school of melodramatic evil acting, but with no mention of the bloody mess that partition would soon make of the subcontinent.

It is films like this that opens my eyes on what I have been missing out on. It Happened One Night was a blast! If one wants to see old fashioned cinema that requires little thought and instead requiring your heart, then this is the perfect film to go to.The film follows the collision of two individuals and the journey they both take together; one is a rich spoiled girl and the other a smart-ass opportunist. Many of its narrative elements are clich but I was able to forgive all that as it was written and directed very well, instilling humour and tenderness in many of its scenes. The events they go through together are simply entertaining to watch; how can one not enjoy the scene where the two leading characters are fake arguing with another in order to get out of a tough situation? The character development in this film is also spread out sporadically, allowing it to come off as natural rather than something forced.The crowning achievement in this film is its chemistry between the two leads, Peter and Ellie. Watching them both together was such a delight; I could simply listen to the banter and the small looks they give each other for hours. Not all of the credit is bestowed upon the film's writers, as the actors that portray them on screen and allow them to come alive are also worthy of such praise. Though the leading characters in this film aren't exactly the most detailed of creations, I cannot imagine anyone else playing these roles besides Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert.Though I had a great time watching this film, I did have some issues that prevent me from giving it a higher score. My concerns lie with the final act, as it lacked the resonance that the first two acts delivered. When the two characters were apart, the film lacked a spark and the cracks in the film's traditional plot becomes too prominent. I understand this film doesn't possess the intensity in its setting and situation as for example Casablanca, but I did hope that the writers were able to conjure up something wonderful in its climax that would have left me in a gasp of wonderment. I didn't think the conclusion and the lead up to it has failed so miserably that everything that I watched preceding it was worthless, as it was acceptable.It Happened One Night could have easily swept me off my feet because of its wonderfully written and acted characters, but sadly the film drops the ball in its third act with its lack of emotional impact, as compared to the events and development that preceded it.

Jarrett M (de) wrote: Madison County is well done, at least on the technical side. It looks very good visually, but that's about the best thing that the film has going for it. The creative side of the coin is less praise worthy. The writing, acting, story and direction are all sufficient, but are uninspired and bring nothing new to the table. Only recommended for those that are hardcore slasher fans. Most others will get bored with this.
