Ryan V (fr) wrote: While I stress that is a really bad movie, I can actually say its entertaining. Depending on your ironic view of watching a "so bad it's good" movie, that is. It'll remind you of about 40 other movies its ripping off; it's like Romancing the Stone, The Terminator, a Bruce Lee movie, a time travel movie, mad scientist movie, and many others rolled all into one. Again... it's so bad... but can be amusing with beer.
James C (it) wrote: When four friends discover the body of a dead hooker in the boot of their car and decide to bury her, they soon find out it isn't going to be easy as they thoughtHere we have an ultra low budget grindhouse movie written, produced, directed and starring twin sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska. The plot is very high octane, never taking itself too seriously as it runs from one encounter to another, and even though there are a few moments where it doesn't quite make sense, it is still a fun watch. The small cast all play their roles with glee and though a little wooden in places, really bring their characters to life. The gore is plentiful, and the amateurish feel really adds to the overall tone of the movie, All in all this is not a movie without it's problems, and at times it feels like it does not have the budget or technique to bring all it's ideas convincingly to the screen. But saying that, it is still a fun watch and this reviewer feels that the twin Soska sisters have a very bright future ahead.

Jake W (au) wrote: In Terribly Happy lies the distinction between American thrillers and Foreign thrillers over the past decade. Most American thrillers these days try to weave convoluted plotlines, filled with intrigue and extraordinary plot twists, all the while trying to hide the inaccuracies and flaws in the script with perfunctory action scenes (and most likely explosions too!). This was not always the case, but it seems as though over the past decade, it is increasingly the norm when trying to please the low-attention span audiences who frequent movie theaters. Terribly Happy continues the trend over the past few years of clever, entertaining, darkly humorous thrillers to arrive from other countries, Denmark in this case. The simple set-up is that a police officer in Copenhagen, Robert Hansen (Jakob Cedergren), is sent to a small Danish town to serve as sheriff after pulling a gun on his wife, a mistake which cost him his marriage as well. There, he finds himself in between a wife who accuses her husband of beating her and the husband who says she is crazy. Although the answer is fairly obvious here, and the movie doesn't play this up as a big mystery, the film spirals into ambiguity from here as Jakob finds himself further and further down the rabbit hole into territory he has to escape. Terribly Happy feels like the kind of thriller that would have come out of America 25 or 30 years ago. One pleasant aspect is the fact that the script feels natural, and never forces the characters to act out of character, leading believability to the proceedings. The various twists and turns along the way flow out of the script, rather than feeling shoe-horned in. This is a quiet, but violent thriller, which knows how to pick and choose its battles, never resorting to cheap tactics to please the audience. There are a number of twists, but the movie doesn't feel even slightly rushed. In fact, there is an ethereal, pleasing slowness to it, in which each scene is played out to its maximum and no scene lacks a purpose. The film works because it is as unbelieveable as a thriller really needs to be, but it all seems grounded in the hands of the filmmaker. Lacking in this film is the sort of cynical ultra-seriousness present in most modern day thrillers. It's dark and violent, but with a lightness of touch and a humorous sensibility to it. Its never openly comical, but the film never plays the situation entirely straight either. There is a subtle undercurrent to the proceedings, as the characters reveal more and more about themselves and the town becomes further implicated in the proceedings, that gives the movie a surreal feeling to it, in which the tone is perfectly balanced for maximum enjoyment. In addition, this leads to an increased sense of mystery to the proceedings, not because the script is forcing it upon us, but because the atmosphere of the movie creates a town which seems so real and yet so fake, as if its all being built up to fool Robert and as if everyone is in on the game. This combined with a tone which refuses to fit to a certain type creates a feeling of ambiguity, as dread and fun intermix, and we are never sure where the movie is going to take us next because of this. Take for example a scene in which Robert and the accused husband size each other up by basically attempting to out-drink each other; the structure of the scene and the lack of dialogue create a scene which potentially bodes ill for at least one of the characters, and the audience is, for lack of a better turn, bamboozled by the film's refusal to film the scene with a particular tone in mind. It's dark, but also quite funny. The ending in particular could have gone in a number of directions, but the direction it does go shows why this movie could never have been made with a mindset of simply pleasing mainstream audiences. The whole film, said ending included, is perfectly balanced and delightfully dark and quirky to the point where anyone looking for something a little bit (or a lot) different would do well to take the journey that Terribly Happy offers. Rating: 8.5/10

With the world economy expanding as it is bringing pollution along with a combined lack of socially responsible leadership. This is a distress call for the environment and the future of our world is clear. A 10/10 is deserved for this film.
Gavin M (de) wrote: I'm not gonna lie, I think "Jackie Brown" is an absolute masterpiece! It's Tarantino's hangout movie. People can say what they want about the film and that's it's not as great as "Pulp Fiction," or his other movies such as "The Hateful Eight," but I think "Jackie Brown" definitely deserves to be seen and included in the Tarantino filmography as one of his finest movies he has directed. Sam Jackson once said in an interview that the thing about "Jackie Brown" is that it's just not "Pulp Fiction 2" and he's right. Tarantino himself even said he wasn't trying at all to top "Pulp Fiction" when he made "Jackie Brown," and that he was going even further down the rabbit hole, so to speak and do an even more deeper character piece with this one than what he did with "Pulp Fiction." And it shows. It shows greatly, but mostly because of Tarantino's awesome soundtrack for the film that I feel is the reason keeps you completely entertained throughout the whole movie. It's got that ultimate 70's feel to it like all Tarantino films do, but this one especially stands out. You can tell Tarantino is an ultimate product of the 70's, and I say the word "ultimate" because nobody has ever captured the essence of 70's music the way Tarantino has with all his films starting all the way back to "Reservoir Dogs" with "Little Green Bag" by the George Baker Selection. Even the way the characters talk, move and act in his films, you can clearly tell that this is a man who not only grew up in the 70's, but hung out with some really cool cats and paid attention to every detail! For me the number one intriguing thing for me in "Jackie Brown" is Robert DeNiro. The man really is the greatest actor of his generation, HANDS DOWN! And personally my favorite actor next to Jack Nicholson. There's something about DeNiro's character in this film that's much more mellow than all the other previous roles he has portrayed, especially in his 8 collaborations with Martin Scorsese and his films. But with the role of Louis, Robert DeNiro really did something quite extraordinary by playing an ex-con, who recently has just been let out of prison and is slowly getting back in the game with his arms dealer partner played incredibly by Samuel L. Jackson. DeNiro is very low key until the parking lot incident happens between him and Bridget Fonda, who is absolutely sexy as hell in this film! And then we see what DeNiro's character is all about. It's probably the best scene in the movie, and probably because it's so unexpected what DeNiro's character does to Bridget Fonda's Melanie. The blonde headed surfer girl who couldn't keep her mouth shut, even when she was warned cautiously by DeNiro's character before you know what happens. And then DeNiro drives off in the 70's hippie van listening to "Midnight Confession" by The Grassroots that Bridget Fonda's character was listening to earlier on the way to go pick up Sam Jackson's gun money at the shopping mall where the whole scam takes place. And that scam is upheld and cleverly thought of by Pam Grier herself, who is hot and I mean HOT in this film as the title character Jackie Brown. An airline stewardess who is struggling to make ends meet on a $16,000 a year salary, who also smuggles in money from Mexico for Sam Jackson's character Ordell Robbie. She owns the part completely. Nobody else could have played that role but her. It's absolutely her finest work to date as an actress. She is the airline cougar that every young man who dreams about dating an older woman would kill for just to go home with her. She has so much class and independence about her that you can clearly tell in the film that she doesn't depend on anybody, but herself. And that's what makes her character so damn attractive in the film. Also, the fact that she's the smartest character in the whole film is the reason we are so drawn to her in the film. She's street smart on all levels which is what makes her an absolute threat to both Sam Jackson's character and the feds (played excellent by both Michael Keaton and Michael Bowen) who have her in custody for smuggling cocaine in along with Sam Jackson's gun money. But she can't do it all by herself. She needs a partner to help her execute the scam against Sam Jackson, and the man to do it is Robert Forster, who plays Max Cherry. A bail bondsman, also Pam Grier's bail bondsman in the film, who she gets to along on the scam between her and Sam Jackson and gets a nice chunk out of it. Robert Forster is absolutely incredibly watchable in his role, he owns his role as much as Pam Grier owns hers and executes his character perfectly. He's a no bullshit guy, much like Grier's character is a no bullshit girl, which explains the attraction Forster's character feels when first capturing his eyes on Jackie Brown. Forster received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor or his performance, and he rightfully deserved it as he he has not only the look, but physical requirement to play such a character. He has some great moments with Tarantino's dialogue that all the characters do in this film, especially Sam Jackson, who literally just eats it up like no man's business. But there' something about Robert Forster when he speaks, you immediately know that this is a guy who has seen and hear everything so don't try it! He's got that ex-cop turned bail bondsman going for him all the way in this movie, which makes it real interesting to watch him and Pam Grier interact with each other on screen as you feel watching the movie that even though they are playing older people in the movie, that their romance could happen! Shit, it happens everyday! We just don't know about it. So, there you go! Go checkout "Jackie Brown," an keep in mind some of the stuff that I said earlier in my review about the film and that it's Tarantino's hangout movie, not Pulp Fiction 2!
Brad S (de) wrote: A beautiful film with a constantly roaming camera. The challenge for me was the story, I wasn't full drawn in but this is a film certainly worth watching for the visual alone. Max Ophuls is a master with the tracking shot and this film shows him at his full powers. Worth a watch for classic cinema lovers.
Nate W (br) wrote: George Stevens' adaptation of the stage-based memoir "I Remember Mama" hasn't aged well. It's easy to see how it pleasing it would have been in 1948, an age when critics and audiences were easily satisfied merely by the depiction of wholesome family values on screen, no matter how mundane, but today it only translates as boring saccharine. The lengthy episodic plot structure (probably better suited to television, onto which it was eventually spun off) is enough to put one to sleep. While Irene Dunne does play the part of the family's problem-solving matriarch with much warmth, without any kind of arc to guide her, the character becomes one-note, however appealing she may come off.
