(nl) wrote: Ok, why am I pretty much the only one giving this movie 4 stars? Well because it deserves it. I had never heard of this movie and simply found it on Netflix. I watched the first 3 or 4 minutes and decided right then and there to be open. It was not a big budget Hollywood picture nor a highly touted independent film it simply was what it was. I don't think that it tried to be anything else. It was honestly much like the Punk music scene itself and that may have been lost on many of the viewers. The bottom line for me is that I had zero expectations and therefore was not let down and was able to enjoy it for what it was. "If Burt likes it than anyone will eat it"

(ca) wrote: This is pretty much "Under Siege" under water. Not much to say about this but that it's made as a TV-movie. I'm just happy that Eric Roberts doesn't give a fuck about what movies he's doing. One second he's in "The Dark Knight" the other a peace of shit like this.

(it) wrote: Vincente Minnelli directed melodrama that's more soap opera than western. Robert Mitchum plays the rich womanizing ranching family patriarch and Eleanor Parker plays his wife who stays with him out of obligation and a bargain they struck that she would be allowed to raise their son without Mitchum's interference. However, their now grown son, George Hamilton, is a mama's boy and awfully dependent upon his mother, so Mitchum decides it's time that he makes Hamilton a man. Mitchum takes him on hunting trips and such with his loyal and macho ranch hand George Peppard, who we later find out (SPOILER ALERT) is actually Mitchum's bastard son who seeks the fatherly attention Mitchum is suddenly bestowing upon Hamilton. There are other pregnancies, rival rich families, secret romances, and all sorts of melodrama that you'd expect from a glossy Minnelli MGM production. That glossy Minnelli look and soapy story elements seem oddly out of place in this butch western setting, but that is a small quibble. Director George Stevens did this much better with "Giant" but I'm a sucker for Minnelli soap operas and I did quite like this film, even if it was a bit overlong.
