(ru) wrote: This isn't a bad film if you're into werewolf movies, but overall it is overhyped. It was still enjoyable, but it isn't highly recommend just on a general horror list
(ru) wrote: Very fond of Helen Hunt

(jp) wrote: I am not a great fan of Ray Liotta since Seinfield made fun of him in the B Movie :-)... joking... but I really never thought of him as a great actor. In this movie he did well enough that we can say that the film is successfully delivering intense and electrifying performance - just enough for a positive review! Liotta plays Detroit detective Marty Kingston, the leader of an undercover narcotics team, whose members are being systematically murdered one by one... Kingston joins forces with young (and cocky) homicide detective, but neither of them is prepared for the shocking corruption their investigation will uncover... The film is a sequel in name only, as it takes place in Detroit rather than Los Angeles and only Clifton Powell returns from the first film's cast... Enough said! Very formulaic for most of its running time and it doesn't offer anything that hasn't been done to death within the genre already. Not terrible and worth a look if you enjoyed the first one... if you didn't, skip it!

(it) wrote: While I've never understood the people who adore "Bad" movies, this documentary about the "Best of the worst" is bittersweet following of some people who made a real bad movie and suddenly find out, hey were cult stars! George Hardy seems like a really great guy and drives the doc while you see parts where Margo is practically asylum crazy and the director is a pompus ass, solid doc.

(au) wrote: A unique quiet film. Believable and unconventional, just not very impactful. Still enjoyable on some level.
(nl) wrote: Closer is an unforgettable, intelligently-made drama about four people who have no one left but each other. Patrick Marber's dialogue sweeps you off your feet.
(es) wrote: It's a fairy tale movie. Not too believable at all, but it still has a certain hook that keeps your attention.
(ru) wrote: After the death of Peter Sellers, Edwards threw something together with leftovers of other movies to make another episode of the Pink Panther serial. The film is an unforgivable mess that has no reason to exist.
(mx) wrote: I can imagine conspiracy nuts going crazy over this film. It's a little overlong but it's a decently paced thriller with some good turns of the plot and entertaining dialogue, especially from Gould and Savalas.
(ru) wrote: A not very good vampire/mad scientist mash up. The vampire side of things was both underdeveloped and unnecassary. Story is a vampire is killed with a stake through the heart, but is somehow brought back to life via blood transfusion. Six Years later a doctor is sent to a prison for the criminally insane on a malpractice charge. The prisoner is quickly selected to assist in blood transfusion experiments, conducted by none other than the vampire from the begining of the movie. Whether or not he is actually a vampire is never fully explained, but it appears he was simply the victim of superstition. Yup. The story is none too original. At first I was enjoying the movie despite its obvious flaws, but by the midway point I was just bored. Towards the end I started to doze off but managed to stay awake through till the bitter end. I didn't exactly hate this movie either. It is what it is... A B grade film from the late 50's. But I'd be lying if I said that there was anything exceptional on display here. Watch it if you go for this sort of thing I guess. Just don't expect too much.

(br) wrote: Clint Eastwood often takes pride in the fact that many of his significant films are completely CGI Free & purely focused on Story-Telling.This film is a beautiful & soulful film that many think will be just be a 'Girl Rocky' but goes in an unexpected & powerful direction.A moving film of a Father & Daughter story that has a powerhouse performance by Hillary Swank & probably one of the best supporting actor performances on screen by Morgan Freeman. A wonderful that is just as satisfying years after than I originally saw it.

There were times when the film could have been a little more interesting and seemed more like a made for tv type of film ? but interesting none-the-less.
