Gordon H (es) wrote: Funny Action-Adventure Blast!Originally Written November 25, 2010--After surviving an assault from a squad of hit men, retired CIA agent Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) reassembles his old team for an all-out war. Frank reunites with old Joe (Morgan Freeman), crazy Marvin (John Malkovich) and wily Victoria (Helen Mirren) to uncover a massive conspiracy that threatens their lives. Only their expert training will allow them to survive a near-impossible mission -- breaking into CIA headquarters. What a funny, action-adventure blast! Willis is brilliant in this role as a retired CIA agent who assembles a team as eccentric as they are deadly! So funny and exciting at the same time. It's like Die Hard meets Ghostbusters! Four-and-a-half stars.

Lee A (mx) wrote: There are a lot of movies out there that deserve rotten tomatoes. This isn?t one of them. This movie makes you think. It has a social message but not one that makes you go hypoglycemic. No syrup, no sugar. It is a horror story but not with creepy monsters. The horror is in the mind and in a sick, amoral culture that pressures people to conform, perform, consume. I see the film as a metaphor for two ugly trends in modern society?one is rampant corporate greed, willing to do anything to sell, sell, sell; out to control and out of control. What lengths will they go to? The other--the numbing quality of a society that pushes us to more and more extremes of sensation-seeking in order to feel alive. The dreamlike zombie quality conveyed by the two main characters, played by Jeremy Sisto and Deborah Unger, adds to the numbing surreal quality while the fierce, energetic but sleazy S&M porn director, played by Bruce Payne {inexplicably left out of the DVD credits], serves as a counterpoint and implicit commentary. What extremes of sex and violence are we willing to go to in order to lose our numbness? Paranoia 1.0 is grimly, drearily surrealistic but ultimately an artistic and thoughtful film. It is nuanced and textured, worth seeing more than once.

Stuart M (de) wrote: Not as bad as expected. Sure, it had an incredibly racist yellowface sidekick and a lot of lazy stereotypes for a plot, but it was poking fun at those tropes more than embracing them. If you can tolerate the racism, the character's actually a fairly amusing parody of martial arts master stereotypes. Aside from an overlong conclusion that doesn't really build tension the film's pretty good at hitting all the right beats. Once you embrace the parodic extremism of it all.

Ross S (us) wrote: What an impressive drama, a comical satire about the lines between rich and poor, refinement and decadence. A brilliant battle between order and chaos, and the drama that unfolds between these two extremes.

Adam R (us) wrote: Aching, beautiful, devastating and ultimately haunting, "Make Way for Tomorrow" explores the clash between generations in a way no other film ever has -- and no other movie could hope to match. Bark (Victor Moore) and Lucy Cooper (Beulah Bondi) are forced to move in with their grown children when the old couple's house is foreclosed upon. Despite years of seemingly tender care, they are unwelcome guests, Lucy merely tolerated by her son George (Thomas Mitchell), his wife Anita (Fay Bainter) and their daughter Rhoda (Barbara Read) and Bark treated like a prisoner by daughter Cora (Elizabeth Risdon). Through carefully crafted dialogue and the actors' telling, meaningful movements, director Leo McCarey makes us note the inconvenience the old folks cause for the children and grandchildren. However, McCarey never turns us against his protagonists, who, despite having allies (including kindly but all-too-wise grocer Max Rubens (Maurice Moscovitch) in Bark's case and a room full of Anita's friends in Lucy's case) still cling to their love for one another and the hope they can live together independently once again. After 50 years of trudging through adversity, it almost seems like they will make it. Unfortunately, master director McCarey can't let the audience off so easily; contra Lucy's words to Rhoda, we must "face facts." Circumstances necessitate moving Bark to California while Lucy will be confined to a nursing home -- a change both the couple and the audience knows will likely separate them for what remains of the pair's life. Knowing time is short, Bark and Lucy decide to skip a last supper with their children in favor of exploring New York City -- the site of their honeymoon five decades prior -- on their own. Their lovely time is made even richer due to the kindness of strangers, who see the goodness of the couple's hearts, in contrast to their often selfish progeny. However, this seemingly beatific final act makes Lucy and Bark's final moments together even more heart-wrenching; it's made clear that their last six hours together have possibly been the highlight of the couple's life. The children, the very people who are supposed to be vessels of joy as one approaches the twilight years, deliver a harsh sentence, tantamount to death, that completely shreds the ideal of growing old together. Thus, McCarey forces us to pay the price for sharing the protagonists' last moments of pleasure by confronting us with their agony. It's a stark warning to any children and grandchildren who don't have the necessary measure of perspective to see what the elderly have to offer the world. While some might say life is for the living and the earth belongs to the young, "Tomorrow" reminds us that the old are still living, and, in their hearts, they might have a shred of youth still remaining.
