The Strongest Man in the World is a 1975 film starring Kurt Russell as Dexter Riley, a student in the fictional Medfield College. A school laboratory accident mixes one student's vitamin cereal mix with Dexter Riley's chemical experiment. The students decide to dispose of the mess by giving it to their neighbor's cow, with unintended consequences: the cow begins producing an extraordinary amount of milk! When they try it out on themselves, they discover that the mixture gives any human superhuman strength for a few minutes. The school sees this as the thing needed to save their school from closure, but a competitor learn of this deal, and hires two criminals to stop it.This is the third and final film in a series of comedies, which depict the adventures of perpetual college student, Dexter Riley. It follows the 1972 film, "Now You See Him, Now You Don't," and the 1969 film, "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes."

Sorry Mike nice try - let me guess, you're not married and Stamos is playing you. The so called advice was just as bad as the unecessary unwitty dialogue... I can't get this 1:30 back.

A young woman, Luisa, stays in a ramshackle motel near the beach run by an older peasant caretaker who gets by smoking marijuana. Luisa soon uses up the last of her dwindling supply of heroin, and finds a sliver of refuge in the isolated gray as she struggles with both withdrawal and the notion of escape. This is a slow, quiet, and stark visualization of the notions explored by Baudelaire's text of the same title. This film touches on the alienating impacts of substance use outside the normal urbanized and fast-paced deluge of style and pain we find more often in films like 'Trainspotting,' 'Enter the Void,' or 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.' Instead, this is neither sheen nor horror, simply the calm and slow gaze of an odd search for just such an artificial paradise amid the relentless simplicity of the third-world.

Brendan A (mx) wrote: Poverty row ripoff of "The Omen" with the amusingly named Boo Boo Stewart (I'm guessing his parents were Yogi Bear fans) playing the strange orphan adopted by a childless suburban couple who turns out to be...yep, the antichrist. When seemingly innocuous activities like bonding with his new grandfather over a game of football result in the old man's death and others such as the sexy babysitter meet similar grim fates the adoptive parents soon click on to what is blatantly obvious to the viewer from the start. In the movie's favor, though the story is totally predictable and unoriginal its still so dreadful its watchable enough by the standards of digital STV horror films some good gore and T&A help.

Legendary Singer Cher and Nicolas Cage star in this unique rom com set in the Italian American world in New York City. Cher stars as Loretta a woman who lost her husband many years ago in a bus accident. She is a woman of tradition and follows the ways of Italian americans when it comes to marriage. She half heartedly agrees to marry a man named Johnny after one date. As she prepares for the wedding she is asked to invite Johnny's brother Ronny whom Johnny has an estranged relationship with. Unexpectedly the brother falls for Loretta which leads to a hell of a lot of comedy involving crazy stupid love.So I am gonna go straight to the acting here which hooked me instantly and cher was fantastic here! such a witty sharp comedic performance from one of america's finest entertainers. she is able to bounce off of veterans Olympia Dukakis and Nicolas cage. Nicholas cage gets the chance to get his Casanova on but in a rugged Italian fashion. He gives one of the most passionate and romantic performances of his career here. Olympia Dukakis plays rose the way it needs to be played as Loretta in the distant future. however the love is still there with her just as it needs to be with her daughter. Vincent gardenia also did an excellent job as cosmo here.This script is phenomenally written. such a well thought out comedy. Marriage and starting a family is one of the many important aspects of the Italian culture. Norman Jewison emphasizes on this time and time again here while at the same time looking at love from outside this view. He directs all this with such precision and intelligence. The music is so funny and lighthearted but also beautiful too. It acts as another member of the cast telling this story as should any great film score. I loved the suddenness in all of the comedy everything is unpredictable here. the dialogue is both authentic and showcases the true meaning of amore in Italian culture. The film also supplies a real surprise endingOne of the top 5 best comedies you will ever see and one of my new favorite films. it just so dang funny man go check it out when you can
Brandon W (au) wrote: This movie is so ridiculous, it's awesome. Hoaky acting, over-the-top story, cheesy fight scenes but a whole ton of fun. Kurt Russell plays the perfect "Too cool" character along with his goofy sidekicks and the action scenes are hilarious. Defying the laws of gravity and contains some of the funniest deaths on screen. This film is not for everybody. This film knows how dumb it is and has fun with it. If these lines were in something like a Bourne movie, they would be cringeworthy, but here they are comedic gold. If you like Schlock in your movies, check out Big Trouble in Little China!

My generation's film composers are/were John Barry, Jerry Goldsmith, Basil Polidouris and John Williams. When Scotty dies; it must be the most painful moment I've seen. The Entire film is a painful experience . . . sometimes its good to enjoy films that remind you of the frailty of life.

Daniel P (gb) wrote: Decent Edna Ferber melodrama. Frances Farmer could actually act, at least before she went crazy. The biggest problem - while Edward Arnold is perfectly cast as the millionaire plutocrat in the second half of the film (see also Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Meet John Doe) he is ridiculously miscast as the young, passionate lumberjack of the first half. They should have hired two actors. I think this is the only movie I've ever seen where a Swedish character (Walter Brennan) actually says "yumpin' yimminy," without a trace of irony.
