The Return of Joe Rich
Joe believed in right and wrong until... His job outsourced to India. His teaser rate spiked. His wife bailed. But Joe has a plan...to get it all back, and more. Joe returns home, to the last place on planet Earth where real men can be found...Chicago. Joe's Uncle Dominic is "connected". Joe wants in...to The Mob, or "The Outfit", as it is called in Chicago. And he'll do anything to make it happen. Can a wanna-be wise guy live a long and happy life ? A way cool element of The Return of Joe Rich is amazing HD documentary footage of 10 real-life "Chicago Guys" ages 73 to 89. These "guys" found themselves in the same predicament, in real life, in the 1930's, 40's, and 50's, that Joe does today. They form a "Greek Chorus" which inter-cuts with the present day narrative of The Return of Joe Rich. Written by Sam Auster

One man looks out at his car to see that a large turbine engine has fallen on it. One theory is that a jet broke up in the sky and the pieces crashed.Mark and Charley drive to the storage, and just barely get in. Charley is sad about the break up with Shelley. Shelley and her friend Nikki are at the storage. The maintenance engineer manages to screwup the circuitry of the gates on the storage just before the monster kills him. So no one can get out right away, or any time soon. Shelley does not want to talk to Charley, and is having an affair with Mark. Charley and Nikki are both surprised, and not in a good way. Soon enough they know they are trapped, and that something murderous is in there with them. Also present are Chris, from earlier in the day, and David, who more or less lives in the storage facility.When the monster breaks through the door that they counted on to protect them, Chris runs and gets killed by the monster. David shows them his setup for getting multiple newscasts. The military is all over the place in London.The five (Charley, Mark, Shelley, Nikki, David) who remain send Charley and Mark to traverse the ventilation tubes to steal weapons ('acquire' I suppose) from storage lockers not rented by them. That goes well until the monster blocks Charley; he gets separated from Mark.Will any of them get out alive? Will the authorities come to the rescue, what with tanks patrolling the streets of London? -----Scores------ Cinematography: 6/10 The monster was a classic main-in-the-rubber suit, but not all that well done. Camera work was fine. Sound: 7/10 If one gets the volume for conversation to be correct, the bump in the night sounds are enormously too loud. Acting: 4/10 Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Laura Haddock, and Noel Clarke were just terrible. Colin O'Donaghue was barely OK, while Ned Dennehy was the best. Screenplay: 5/10 Short on plot as well as short on acting to implement the plot. The stupid man-in-rubber-suit monster just turned me off to the story almost as much as the acting. When the monster does not get killed by the fireworks, I'm not surprised, but why was the nearby Shelley OK?

It did however loose a star for lack of originality, the plot follows your typical zero to hero feel. But non the less there were parts which made me laugh out loud and I would recommend this movie to any South African (it would help to understand Afrikaans, but there are subtitles if you own the DVD)
(de) wrote: Another solid British film with some excellent acting but this one lacks the quality of plot that we've become accustomed to in recent years. A decent enough story but a little uneventful for my liking. The ending is very good, however, so this is one of the better 6/10's.

(it) wrote: Hype! is a quick chronicle of grunge in Seattle. It was filmed not at all long after Cobain's suicide, and honestly, doesn't quite have the perspective or pride that we may hold in the scene today. Most of the participants are the Seattle natives, the underground bands who remained underground while their friends scaled the heights. It's got an air of hostility still from people who saw they're home boom with a cultural zeitgeist that rarely ever occurs. The people interviewed largely got annoyed at the absurdity of it all and with Cobain's suicide, surely gave up the possibility of having something nice. There was the guy who was pretending to destroy rare concert posters. The guy surrounded by his historical photographs. The guy with the clearest head, with the sanest perspective on Seattle was probably Eddie Vedder. Funny because his success should have made his perspective inflated. Doubly hysterical because he's not even a native. Pearl Jam implanted him from San Diego! It's not a historical documentary, retelling the innovators one by one. If there was an "inventor" of the Seattle sound, no one copped to it. If someone coined the term "grunge", we didn't learn about it here. That's my only complaint. Is that there was too much complaining in the movie. That's what I listen to the music for...

The second half seems to drag slightly, with strange editing choices and seemingly disconnected scenes and, as with some Miike, a somewhat disappointing ending. Definitely not enough Riki Takeuchi for my tastes; that guy is such bad ass (See: Miike's Dead or Alive trilogy). Still, a giant, a vagina-dart shooting hermaphrodite, yakuza, and pre-school hitmen? Definitely worth it.
