(es) wrote: For any film aficionados and self proclaimed fans of the late Chaplin immense and unique work, this film plays like a love letter and homage to the artist. The film is very well written and marvelously shot and acted. It has flaws of course, how can one resume such a life in 2.30 hours? But the film will ravish audiences by it's marvelous double tone that suits and embrace the work of chaplin as a comic and also a dramaturge. Let's not forget that most chaplin movies are highly critical of the social problems of his own era wonderfully dressed up in farces and jokes but always with a tender heart. Chaplin was a magnificent entertainer and someone who was fearless for his time. This film manages to capture his aura and will leave you with both tears and laughter in your heart. Definitely a film that says a lot and says it intelligently and wonderfully. Sir Attenborough you made something quite special here ... thanks for this beautiful piece of cinema.

(ag) wrote: Married to the Mob is a funny film. It is about an undercover FBI agent falls in love with a recently widowed mafia wife seeking to start her life over after her husband's murder and who is also pursued by a libidinous mafia kingpin seeking to claim her for himself. Michelle Pfeiffer and Alec Baldwin give excellent performances. The script is well written. Jonathan Demme did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the comedy and romance. Married to the Mob is a must see.
(de) wrote: A girl power type movie about a female rock band. It's a pretty good drama/comedy, but it could have gone further than it did drama wise, and it could be funnier comedy wise.
(it) wrote: The Venom Mob, the team in front of and behind the camera who made "The Five Deadly Venoms" made kind of a silly film here about a towns crime boss who fights with a golden sword keeps his skills sharp by challenging all-comers and then brutally killed them. The goofy townspeople no longer seem to know kung-fu, or at least all the real martial artists left, so there is no one to challenge the evil boss. But one group then trains, leading to the obligatory martial arts training sequences, and then an eventual showdown. Despite a pretty weak story, the film does deliver some terrific fight sequences, even if the fighting style is more of an old style of fighting and seems dated compared to the more modern style ushered in by the like of a young Jackie Chan or soon after Jet Li and Tsui Hark.
(au) wrote: John Travolta is a good dancer and he is the standout in this dance film, featuring disco music by the Bee Gees and others. But the screenplay is thin, and the performances from the female leads is weak. I saw the edited PG version. 1001

(mx) wrote: A classic 1940s melodrama, and quite contraversial for its time, but I didn't really engage with the charcters. Well-acted all round and a good script but not as great as its reputation. Louis Jourdan would go on to play classic movie villains in Swamp Thing and Octopussy (tee-hee)
(kr) wrote: I was utterly captivated by this lovely film about the life of a young American boy as he grows from childhood to adolescence, facing the issues and problems that modern family life throws his way. The story unfolds as a series of snapshots filmed over twelve years using the same cast each time. This in itself is an extraordinary feat and the dedication and devotion to the project of the cast members and writer/director Richard Linklater really stand out. It makes the story feel genuine and heart-felt. The portrayal of the developing and evolving family relationships is beautifully done and the viewer really gets to know the central character Mason, his sister Samantha, his mum and her various boyfriends and husbands and his own biological father. It is a great insight into a modern family life showing all the tensions, triumphs and traumas that many people have to deal with. There is one moment when the teenage Mason and his stepbrother return home to find a devastating event unfolding that is shocking and upsetting but, on the whole, this is a gentle, tender movie with many uplifting and funny moments. I particularly liked the way in which the relationship between Mason and Samantha changes from childhood sibling rivalry and argument to teenage irritation and finally the familial love of two well adjusted, young adults. The actors are brilliantly cast with the lead being taken by Ellar Coltrane and his sister Lorelei Linklater. Both are extraordinarily engaging and credit for this must also go to Richard Linklater's direction which is naturalistic and unintrusive. Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke play the children's mom and dad who themselves go through hugely transforming story arcs. This film was an absolute joy to watch and, for me, didn't have so much as a frame that seemed out of place.
