The effects were so cheesy and ridiculously bad. 3/4 of the movie laughing my ass off, while it was intended to be scary. Great to watch with friends if you got nothing better to do.

(jp) wrote: Everyone's gettin' lined up. Good Popcorn Movie! I thought Cedric the Entertainer did a great job, not only with comic lines but also in a couple of dramatic scenes. Of course some of what he said was offensive, but it was probably realistic. I say 'probably' since I'm white and don't really know the culture. Well, I wouldn't recommend it for kids or my mother-in-law, as the language is earthy (but real). But aside from this, it's an excellent film--whether you are black, white or green! Good acting, great characters and exceptional writing make this a good bet.A day in the life of a barbershop on the south side of Chicago. Calvin, who inherited the struggling business from his deceased father, views the shop as nothing but a burden and waste of his time. After selling the shop to a local loan shark, Calvin slowly begins to see his father's vision and legacy and struggles with the notion that he just sold it out. The barbershop is filled with characters who share their stories, jokes, trials and tribulations. In the shop we find Eddie, an old barber with strong opinions and no customers. Jimmy is a highly educated barber with a superiority complex who can't stand Isaac, the new, white barber who just wants a shot at cutting some hair. Ricky is an ex-con with two strikes against him and is desperately trying to stay straight. Terri is a hard-edged woman who can't seem to leave her two-timing boyfriend. And lastly there's Dinka, a fellow barber who is madly in love with Terri but doesn't get the time of day.
(nl) wrote: Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner have both appeared in a number of smart modern day classics, but I have to say this silly comic romantic adventure film is the one that always first comes to mind for these two fine actors. Turner is a romance novel writer whose sister is kidnapped and she needs to give the bad guys a map leading to valuable treasure. She then meets up with colorful adventurer Douglas and the two have a series of exciting and funny set pieces, meeting up with a colorful cast of characters, including the very funny Danny DeVito, although Alfonso Arau easily steals the film during his small bit in the film as a drug kingpin who's also a huge fan of Turner's steamy romance novels. The film was made by quite a few people before they became huge. Director Robert Zemeckis had only made two films at this point ("Used Cars" and "I Wanna Hold Your Hand"). Turner and Douglas had been in some major films, but weren't major stars quite yet. Devito was known primarily for "Taxi" but wasn't a film star yet. Composer Alan Silvestri had been scoring "CHiPs" and "TJ Hooker" episodes prior to this before going onto major films like "Back to the Future" or "The Avengers." The same goes for director of photography Dean Cundey, who was mostly doing low budget horror and science fiction films before this (though many are now classics like "Escape from New York" or "The Thing") before making the likes of "Jurassic Park" or "Apollo 13." Interestingly, this film is the only writing credit for Diane Thomas, who never made anything else (though there was uncredited work by a number of other writers). Before this film was released the studio was convinced they had a flop on their hands and actually fired director Zemeckis off of "Cocoon." However, "Romancing the Stone" was a huge hit, even spawning a sequel, and as a result Zemeckis was giving the okay to go ahead with his own project, "Back to the Future." I'd also say that this film was surprisingly profane and violent for a PG film, but I suppose this was in the days before PG-13. Overall, this is a lightweight adventure romantic comedy, but the chemistry and star power between Turner and Douglas is terrific, the action is exciting and the comedy is funny.
(ru) wrote: In "A Year of the Quiet Sun," Norman(Scott Wilson, of CSI) is an army driver in post-war Poland for the war crimes commission when he has to relieve himself by an abandoned vehicle, almost not seeing Emilia(Maja Komorowska), who is inside working on a painting, before it is too late. Trying to make up for their awkward meeting, he offers her a ride but she refuses. Regardless, he follows her back to the bombed out apartment where she lives with her mother(Hanna Skarzanka) since their return to their native land, across the way from Stella(Ewa Dalkowska), the local prostitute. Norman returns later with paints and sunglasses for Emilia. At the same time, she is not yet ready to return his affections. And that's when the local thuggery puts in an appearance. "A Year of the Quiet Sun" is an emotionally resonant movie with a stunning final scene. As such, it is set in a time and place where everything has been swept aside, allowing for everybody to mix together out in the open, which should allow for them to begin over. However, reality sets in, as the old order not only takes hold again but predators prey on the weak. And then there are those like Emilia's mother who do not forgive so easily(she thinks Stella should be shaved for her past dealings with the Nazis but otherwise I like her), forgetting for a second who the real criminals were. So, what chance do two damaged people like Emilia and Norman have in such a world?
