(au) wrote: Pleinement inscrit dans la vague de films memoriels qui agite le cinema franais depuis quelques annees, "L'armee du crime" reprend son compte - pour mieux le detourner - l'intitule de l'affiche rouge placardee sur tous les murs de France lors du procs sommaire du groupe Manouchian, resistants communistes issus de l'immigration dont les actions spectaculaires donnrent du fil retordre aux troupes d'occupation allemandes de 1942 1944. Un sujet interessant en soi que Robert Gediguian traite malheureusement avec trop de platitude. S'il recree avec beaucoup de soin l'atmosphre d'un Paris occupe, "L'armee du crime" prend certaines libertes avec les faits historiques - il ne s'en cache d'ailleurs pas - pour mieux sublimer la destinee tragique de ces combattants etrangers menes par un leader on ne peut plus christique. Le problme est qu'on peine un peu s'immerger dans ce film au classicisme fige, qui ressemble d'ailleurs plus un honnte telefilm historique qu' une reelle experience cinematographique. Gediguian prend le temps de s'arrter sur la plupart de ses personnages mais sans parvenir ce que le spectateur eprouve une reelle empathie leur egard. Reste une leon d'histoire tout fait valable, qui meritait sans aucun doute d'tre portee l'ecran.

Mostly, because I really tried to like it after it was recommended to me and after I had read so many favourable reviews. However I was a bit dissapointed. What I can definetely say is that I absolutely adored the soundtrack!! The performances (most of them) were good as well. And I loved the grotesque humour. Apart from some few scenes which were brilliant (my favourite is the funeral), most were artificially streched. And I found the plot disappointing even though I thought it was so promicing in the beginning. Maybe I just need to see it a second time?

To be honest the only real reason I watched it was because it made sense around the Halloween season, but to my surprise, this is a very underrated movie. It has a nice slow buildup at the start and once the monster comes into play, the film shows off some great scenes. There's a lot to like about Pumpkinhead if you're a horror fan. It has a good and different(at least in birth and appearance) monster, a great middle of nowhere setting, and excellent atmosphere and sets. Ed Harley is a farmer and single parent of a young boy. They work together all day at a grocery store that Ed owns and their routine is interrupted when some city folks stop by the grocer on their way to a cabin. When one of the teenagers accidentally runs over Ed's boy, Ed takes his son to a local witch because he wants revenge. Hence Pumpkinhead is summoned. The movie has a look and feel that I just really enjoyed and I really like the simpleness of the villain and story. It's just a really fun and enjoyable horror film that kind of has a little of everything. There's a witch, a demon, a fairy tale, all wrapped into a revenge/monster slasher. It's tough to describe but that's what makes it worth a look. It has a feel that is truly its own. This may just look like another bad horror film. I mean a monster called Pumkinhead, come on. But really I believe it will surprise viewers who give it a chance. I definitely know it surprised me. Pumkinhead is an excellent horror film for around the Halloween holiday.

It brings back much of the wordplay and routines that had been discarded in favour of slapstick in their recent movies. As their last film for the studio that made them famous and second last together period there is somthing bittersweet about it but in the end it all works out. Abbott finally gets a girl and Costello gets the last laugh!
