Douglas L (br) wrote: Body Bags is a Tales From the Crypt like film, which had some cool satire in the story presentation segments, however, all 3 stories were very weak in my eyes, just very uninteresting and boring for the most part. Only decent story was the baseball player and his eye.

Kendall I (br) wrote: I used to love this movie in my childhood, but now that I'm older, I notice how cheesy it really is at times. It still fills me with wonder, but some of the respect I had for it is lost. PLOT:12-year old David Freeman (Joey Cramer) is just a normal kid. He has a mom (Veronica Cartwright), a dad (Cliff De Young), and a younger brother. One July 4th, 1978, he goes out to find his brother in the woods. However, he falls in a ditch and passes out. He doesn't realize it, but he doesn't wake up until eight years later. The weirdest part about it is that he's still 12-years old. After a big confusion, he's reunited with his family but taken to an institution for study. After a bit of experiments, the scientists find out he has more unknown knowledge stored in his head, such as star charts from an undiscovered galaxy! Not to mention, David is hearing voices. One night, these voices call him to go somewhere, and he finds himself in a strange flying saucer with a robot named Max (Paul Reubens), who may have details on his long journey. It's a great plot executed decently. ACTING:The acting in here is okay. The performances overall are hit-or-miss. Joey Cramer did a pretty sucky job as the young David Freeman, but I believe it was due to his age. Paul Reubens does a pretty good job as Max, putting his usual style into the voice. The other shiners would be Cliff De Young as Bill Freeman, Veronica Cartwright as Helen Freeman, Matt Adler as older Jeff Freeman, and Sarah Jessica Parker as Carolyn McAdams. SCORE:The score in this movie is pretty cool. It's mysterious and has a kind of wonder, conducted by the well-known Alan Silvestri. It was pretty cool EFFECTS:The effects were pretty great for their time. I still like them. The computer effects used for the spaceships many perks are still pretty cool, and the puppetry effects for the creatures are pretty neat. These effects have aged over time, but they still are neat to look at nowadays. OTHER CONTENT:This movie has its fair share of pros and cons. This used to be one of my favorites when I was real young, but it's kind of lost its luster to me now. It still fills me with a bit of wonder and nostalgia from the old days, plus it has charm and some good humor to boot. However, this movie is terribly cheesy and has some major problems with plot execution. The problem I mainly have with it is that when David passes out, he doesn't really just pass out. He falls off into the ditch, and he gets right back up. He doesn't lay there for a minute or anything; he just gets back up in 5 seconds. That makes everything a little jumbled and hard-to-follow. This added to the cheesiness and the hit-or-miss acting bring the good idea down. OVERALL,an okay movie with a great plot, okay performances, cool Silvestri score, great effects for the time period, a feeliing of wonder, nostalgia, charm, and some good humor, but it's cheesy with some hit-or-miss acting and major execution problems.

The movie is about a man who discovers that his beautiful younger wife, Jennifer, is having an affair, he plans her murder--the perfect murder. Among the cops arriving at the crime scene is hostage negotiator Detective Rob Nunally, the only officer permitted entry to the house. Surprisingly, Crawford readily admits to shooting his wife, but Nunally is too stunned to pay close attention when he recognizes his lover, whose true identity he never knew, lying on the floor in a pool of blood. This is a film that was overlooked by everyone. It didn't do well at the box office and critics was mix about this film, and after watching the film I got to say the movie was okay, yep just okay. The movie opening was sold. Showing everything in five minutes. Ryan Gosling did a great job in the role of a hot shot lawyer. Anthony Hopkins like always did a brilliant job in this movie playing the clever killer that we all have a soft spot for. The movie does slow down for me at times, but the movie has brilliant writing and overall a well done film.
Dottie P (au) wrote: This is what a biopic should be. Rather than preaching and shocking trying to make a martyr of the main character, this film is a celebration of not only Harvey Milk's life and message, but also of his peers and supporters and the gay community in general. The crafting of this film is excellent, letting even the viewers who have never heard of Milk before know where the film is heading. Sean Penn has a couple "I Am Sam" moments, but overall his performance is extraordinary. Kudos to this film. And God bless Harvey Milk.
