A gang of five diverse oddball criminal types rent a two-room apartment in an old house on a London cul-de-sac from an octogenarian widow with three pet parrots. The group's mastermind, Professor Marcus, tells her a cover story that they are members of an amateur string quintet and would like to use the rooms to hone their musical skills.

(ru) wrote: The story sometimes moves at a crawl, but always the filmmaker follows the pair with unobtrusive attentiveness to conflicting cultural and generational pulls.
(gb) wrote: My Life in Ruins could have been a lot better but basically I was just waiting for something more throughout the whole movie. I was waiting for something to happen that never really did happen. It felt like it didn't really have a structured plot and the whole movie was filmed at the same place and I needed more variation. It was an okay movie and you managed to sit through it, but by the end of it it was pretty much forgotten.
(gb) wrote: The war scenery is undeniably convincing, but the cast feels sorely underdeveloped and the script is too watered down to attribute anything new to the war movie genre.
(kr) wrote: The potential is there but it loses it's way on the way to a cop out ending--Watchable, but ludicrous!!
(de) wrote: Back in the 80's I used to skip class and smoke pot and watch one of three movies that were always on HBO at the time. This was one of them.Turns out, it's racist, sexist, and homophobic, but Shue is cute and it has Vincent D'Onofrio as Thor (what?).Did I mention it was the 80's? And I was super high?
(au) wrote: Pursuing the roads for purpose, meaning, and acceptance. A subjective examination of a pernicious interpretation of freedom, Vagabond is an Agns Varda character examination that simply observes and appreciates, mostly dependent on the outstanding performance of a young Sandrine Bonnaire as Mona Bergeron. Outstanding.
(kr) wrote: An enjoyable 80s comedy starring the brother of Bill Murray and the brother of Stacy Keach. You also got a young Jennifer Tilly, two dudes from The Burning, and Marty's sister from Back to the Future. Then, for toppers they throw in Fred Willard.If your into curios and obscure (and not so obscure) comedy character actors, this is the one for you. A niche market to say the least, but still a fun watch.
(au) wrote: Rating: 3.6/5. I don't think I fully understood this film, it is quite complex. The performances are terrific. I really loved the film throughout, except how it ended. Watch out for Satan! Bunuel is incredible!

(au) wrote: People are under-rating this movie bc of its title and the original show. How tf does that matter? "Bewitched" is a good comedy, who cares about the background or the aim? Movies are for entertainment.
(ru) wrote: Crank is just overthe top and it doesn't give to fucks about. Although for a movie about speed and not stopping, it kinda does at time. Eitherway, just the concept alone is pretty good in my humble opinion and it even introduces some other interesting characters.
