(it) wrote: Mike Judge's directorial debut Office Space is a surprisingly hilarious classic that would be remembered for a very long time. Ron Livingston is pretty good and funny in it, and so are the other actors. With one of the characters named Michael Bolton, it can obviously lead to being annoying and a gimmick, but the way they handled it, it was very well done and can get some laughs out of it. The characters are very memorable, especially Milton who seems all sweet and innocent until when someone messes with him, he starts getting dark thoughts which is pretty funny. The script is very witty, and it give some memorable lines. The jokes are very funny, and it shows about what's it like to work in a office with careless bosses and some annoying co-workers. The plot kind of feels like a bit of an excuse to show sketches, but it's effective to know that most of them work, and the movie succeed at making a very funny film out of it.

He tries to gather as much money as he can amidst the social turmoil of Vietnamese society to make a living. During one of his transportation runs, the cyclo is assaulted by a local gang and gets his cab stolen. In desperate need of income, the cyclo is then forced into a life of crime which continues to seduce him with easy money. Unbeknownst to him, the leader of the gang, Poet, attempts to seduce the cyclo's sister into prostitution while having her brother do his bidding. While in the life of crime, the cyclo's lust for money plunges him deeper into a chaotic descent into the underbelly of Ho Chi Minh City's underworld. The plot to Cyclo is like a combination of Taxi Driver and Vittorio De Sica's The Bicycle Thief. The subject matters presented in both of those films are tackled more in-depth in this film and work superbly on this film's part. The story works as both a character study of a man who is driven into madness due to combination of personal and sociological struggles and a familial drama about trying to survive amidst a broke society. These factors in this movie are very evenly balanced out and never ceases to intrigue the viewer. Sometimes they are conveyed through poignant imagery similar to that of Kim Ki-Duk. Aside from the plot, the main highlights of this film, for me, are the acting and the cinematography. Tony Leung's performance as Poet was very conniving and strong. All of the actors do a first-rate job at providing a sense of what a decaying society does to those who attempt to be hard-working citizens and far one can fall when they succumb to its turmoil. The cinematography to this movie is outstanding and does a lot to contribute to the atmosphere presented in the story. The music is also very well done and the use of Radiohead's single ''Creep'' during the nightclub scene is very evenly timed and composed as with all of the other scores used in this movie. Overall, Cyclo is a very superbly directed, acted, composed, and choreographed film that extends from being a work of art to an important film for anyone who loves international cinema. It may be overlong and overbearing for some viewers, but it was very well filmed and tackled to earn my strong recommendation. This film was banned in its home country of Vietnam. Maybe for its graphic depiction of poverty in Vietnamese society, but that's just a guess on my part. Despite some of the negatives, Cyclo is a wonderful film that provides a great experience that is worth sharing. Being the first film I've seen from director Tran Anh Hung, I look forward to seeing The Scent of Green Papaya and hope to see it soon.

I'm a huge fan of the Rankin and Bass stop motion Christmas classics like Santa Claus is Comin' to Town and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, but I imagined I would be a bigger fan of their monster inspired feature Mad Monster Party. I've given this film numerous viewings, from when I was younger up until a few days ago. And each time I watch it I just can't seem to enjoy this one as much as I do their Christmas flicks. I like that Mad Monster Party takes a lot of influences from the classic Universal Monster movies. The designs on each of the characters are pretty neat, and among this studio's best. I especially liked the Rolling Stones-like skeleton band that plays during the party that Baron Boris von Frankenstein (Boris Karloff) holds to name his heir. And it was great to see so many familiar monsters (Dracula, Invisible Man, Wolfman, Jekyll & Hyde, The Mummy and Frankenstein's monster) in a film together. I guess the thing that helps out the Christmas films Rankin and Bass have done is that both the characters and the stories create a sense of familiarity. But with Mad Monster Party the story never clicks with me. The majority of the film feels like a series of random set-ups or gags that don't have much to do with the overall plot of the film. And main character Felix Flankin (Allen Swift) doesn't become an interesting character. He just feels like a lazy rip off of James Stewart. Another character I didn't care much for was Frankenstein's monster's mate, voiced by Phyllis Diller. Now, I like Phyllis Diller a lot. But I found her to be an irritating addition to this film. And that laugh that she does throughout the film really got on my nerves. Plus, while I like a lot of the songs in the film, "You're Different" was one of the lesser songs of the bunch. There are some qualities to Mad Monster Party that I do like, but there aren't enough to win me over. I know that this is a cult favorite, and I can see why that is so. I can sit through this film pretty easily, but it's not a film that I'd go out of my way to do so. I wish this film registered better with me, since it has a lot of elements that make it perfect for Halloween viewings.
