(fr) wrote: The main problem with creating a film about bored teenagers is you yourself become bored. This movie was no exception. Nothing happened the entire time and when it finally does, the ending is forced and purposely made to be sad. Sort of like the filmmakers trying to make you feel guilty for falling asleep on this borefest. Horrible acting, terrible plot and just simply boring. After a while I could care less about this film or its characters. I think I actually mentally tuned out. This film was all over the place, aimless, not knowing what genre it wanted to be in, the ending was lame and even thinking about this movie is making me annoyed.
(ru) wrote: Even though its the typical gay movie about religion hating gay relationships, its facinating how it was a lot more than just that. Through the middle of the movie you think you have the movie figure out but no!, its amazing how they changed the whole trip of the story. Its a instant favorite. I recommend it, plus you are going to love the relationship of the two gay couple. The movie is a little bit biased in the beginning but its really good :).
(jp) wrote: This movie takes elements of "A Clockwork Orange" with a dash of "Trainspotting" to form one of the better independent Scottish films I've ever seen. Though the film is well on it's way to being 6 years old; this is truly a gem that fell through the cracks for me. The film focuses on Frankie, a violent alcoholic whose LiFe is at a crossroads. His journey consists of a lost childhood and the everyday struggles with one's personal demons. He spends the entire movie trying to discover if Hope is a beautiful thing, or something that only failures cling onto, wanting a better LiFe.
(au) wrote: The film Dragonfly was directed by Tom Shadyac starring Kevin Costner, Kathy Bates and many more. It starts out with a man who is a Doctor ( Kevin Costner) who loses his wife Emily ( Susannah Thompson ) when she was in a bus accident in South America. He begins to work extra shifts at the hospital and in doing so he tries with help get his mind off of her. He doesn't believe in the after life and makes it a point throughout the movie to tell his friends this. Then, one day a boy he is trying to revive shouts outs his wife Emily, saying that she is trying to get back to him. This movie then turns into a supernatural feel and he begins a journey to try and find what his wife is trying to tell him and if she is still alive and somehow made it out. It's a great thriller and definitely kept my interest during the whole movie.

(us) wrote: I can't believe this got hosed by users as bad as I did. This movie is nostalgic and reminds me of Disney Channel back when it was in its hay day with nightly movies. This was a staple of the rotation. The youngest son in the family and Jack Pelance make the movie worth the watch by themselves

(it) wrote: this movie is adapted from a script called children's hour, which deals with suppressed lesbianism, again adapted into a movie of the same name in 60s with audrey hepburn and shirley maclaine. both adaptions are all helmed by william wyler. the 1930s version down-plays the lesbian part by granting it a happy ending. supposedly, it should flop for avoiding the crucial parts of original script, but contrarily it surpasses the original script and the 60s version where shirley maclaine confesses her love for audrey hepburn then hangs herself out of severe guilt. so what makes the 30s version superior? the answer is simple: suppressed/sublimated desire is quite often more penetrating than laid-bare passion. it's one of those heart-aching story about closet lesbianism. two educated women hold a boarding school for young girls. then one of their young girls starts a rumour that these two teachers are lesbians just to revenge teachers' punishment. so the school disintegrates due to the homophobic protest from the parents. in the end, the truth is revelt but these two women's career is destroyed and one of the teachers' marriage engagement gets blown off. the biggest turning point would be, at the last moment, one woman confesses her guilty secret to the other (the one whose marriage engagement got cancelled) that she has loved her ever since the first time she laid eyes on her, but she never dares to tell her. for that, she feels she deserves to be condemned for having had such trespassive desire toward her. so the closet lesbo hangs herself to death and her friend just departs quietly. that is the storyline of original play. 1936 is after the hays code. "these three" had to be heterosexualized. but oddly, this decision has made the movie even more lesbianistic. the scandal is substituted with one of the teachers is having an affair with the other teacher's fiancee. and the forbideen guilty secret is she falls in love with her best frtend's fiancee at first sight but she keeps it to herself. at last, the woman just walks off the scene quietly and persuade the man to chase her friend back. then why it's even more lesbianistic??? can't you see or comprehend the subtlety within that woman's mind? she concedes the man she loves to her friend and she's even willing to do the thing, which is opposite to her own benefit, that is persuading the man she loves into returning back to her friend. her friend is literally the priority of her every choice! what drives a person into such altruism? there must be some love that transcends all within her. the movie maintains a gay (happy) picture by having man and woman embrace passionately in public cafe, lovers' joyful reunion. but the audience might ignore one thing, or they're reluctant to recognize, that however he loves her or claims that he loves her, he could never love her more than her friend does! there's a term called homosociality, that means two same-sex people feel great attraction and love for each other but they avoid consummating the passion into the realm of carnal pleasure. that happens all the time in the army (the most homophobic place ever!), but army men just fiercely love each other. in one way, army men could be the "gayest" ever. in a brief, sex makes all the difference. during adolescence, young girls all like to hang out with the prettiest girl in class, ain't it also a sign of hidden homosexual attraction under the surface of homosociality? in order to sustain the perfect vision of socialized self-image, most girls choose to hate the prettiest girl as a last resistance of their straight identity. but sometimes, animosity has great deal to do with sex antagonism. to grow up as a "normal" heterosexual woman is to shed off that awestruck admiration for the pretty classmate by choosing to loathe her instead. if you cannot have her, just ruin her, at least within your mind. (don't you think that scenario common in high-school satires?)
(nl) wrote: All the elements from "Mary Poppins" are here: a stern, magical nanny who flies, a kooky male street performer with whom she has some history, and period-specific English kids who tag along with the unconventional adults through foggy London streets and animated fantasy lands. Even one of the actors, David Tomlinson, is borrowed from Poppins. Yet Disney's attempt to strike gold twice fails. The pacing is much slower, particularly on the restored DVD release in which 30 minutes of footage cut from the theatrical release are reinserted. The songs are bland affairs that Tomlinson and Angela Lansbury meander through without much energy. During the animation sequence, the live actors are sidelined for an interminable soccer match between lions, alligators, and bears. These animal drawings are templates lifted from Disney's "The Jungle Book" (1967), and they would be recycled again in the studio's "Robin Hood" (1973). The final act of "Bedknobs," though it comes too late and lasts too long, does partly redeem it: special effects steal the show as an army of English museum pieces, mainly empty suits of medieval armor, come to life and march against the goofiest Nazis this side of the Three Stooges. It would be better to YouTube that sequence than to sit through the movie to get to it.

(au) wrote: Sentimental drama with a bit of old man meets young girl wish fulfilment. Caine is sincere but sports a terrible American accent for some reason. Might appeal if you want something gentle and inoffensive.

(us) wrote: Graham Chapman is a hoot as the unforgettable Yellowbeard! Surrounding him is a terribly weak adventure movie that's comical at times... either that or it's an unhumorous comedy about pirates. Not really sure.The movie is a whopping big missed opportunity, and that kinda pisses ya off. But It does have its moments. Captain Jack Sparrow has nothing on Yellowbeard.Did I enjoy watching this movie? Personally yes I guess. Is it a good movie? Hell no. 2 stars. Watch if you're out of Monty Python to watch and you'll enjoy Graham Chapman's work here while you sit thru the rest.
