(de) wrote: clever British gangster flick directed by plan b star Ben Drew,started a bit slow but pace picked up and ended up being a very good British movie
(gb) wrote: Denzel Washington is one of the most watchable people in film for mine (Kunis is certainly no strain to watch either). Despite my aversion to it thematically in some ways (the book has always been more Oldman than Washington in my opinion), I found it intriguing enough to watch a few times. Great story, well put together.
(nl) wrote: "Melanie Porter" (Raven-Symone) has finally come to lock horns with her father (Martin Lawrence) after growing up as "Daddy's Little Girl." She wants to go to Georgetown University, but he is way too over-protective, and demands that she Northwestern University, which is less than 30-minutes from the family home. She plans a college road trip with two friends (Brenda Song and Margo Harshman), but good old daddy has plans for him to take her on the trip himself. Everything goes wrong for "Melanie" on the trip, which includes her father recruiting fellow police officers to stage an outrageous scene to get her to go to Northwestern to her brainiac brother (Eshaya Draper), stowing away with the family pig in their father's police vehicle. Now, the foursome have to get to Georgetown before "Melanie's" dreams come crashing to the ground. I have to say this is one of the most predictable movies I've seen in some time. You knew during the opening credits that there was going to be comedic bumps in the proverbial road, with the two main characters fighting all the way until they bond again at the end of the film. I wasn't too impressed with the humor. Again, due to the predictability of the movie. I probably laughed six times the entire movie. Most of the jokes you've seen in other movies, and are done better in those movies. The gags were not set up well if you ask me, and you knew the punchline was coming just as the comedic scenes were starting. I also did not like the performances of Donny Osmond and his on-screen daughter played by Molly Ephraim. There is such a thing as being too over-the-top, and they were. Personally, I don't think either were happy with thier roles, as, to me, they seemed to have forced their performances a bit too much. On the other hand, Martin and Raven-Symone were pretty good together, and did a fairly good job at being a comedy team -- with her being the "straight man" to Martin as the comic. I've flipped passed Raven-Symone's TV series when they are in the middle of a comedic moment. In the show, she seems to be forcing herself at the comedy. Here, she was more comfortable. The supporting cast was completely under used. It seemed to me that characters showed up when needed in the script. There was very little character development in these characters beyond of being told who they were, and how they related to the main characters. Mostly, the supporting cast were either used in comedic scenes, or to set up plot twists. As for the soundtrack, it's mostly well-known tunes heard for decades, sometimes in other movies and television shows. There isn't any of the major names from Disney like the Jonas Brothers or Miley Cyrus on the soundtrack. It's the original artists you hear like the Jackson 5. You also only get one original song in the movie, sung on-screen by Raven-Symone in a funny moment on a tour bus filled with karaoke-singing Japanese tourists. The song itself was upbeat, and is easy to dance to, but you won't be singing it for weeks after. I couldn't really get into this movie, thanks to it being so predictable. However, there are a few good laughs and pretty good performances from Raven-Symone and Martin which barely carry the movie. I would have to say save this one for a rainy day when there is nothing else on.

(mx) wrote: Strong performances by Willem Dafoe and Susan Sarandon barely save this Paul Schrader film. Light Sleeper (1992) - 6.1/10 Director - Paul Schrader Starring - Willem Dafoe, Susan Sarandon, Dana Delany, Mary Beth Hurt, David Clennon, Victor Garber, Jane Adams, Paul Jabara, David Spade, Sam Rockwell. Willem Dafoe stars as John Le Tour, an upscale drug dealer who delivers "white drugs for white people". His boss Ann (Susan Sarandon) plans to go legit soon by starting her own cosmetics company. The contemplative Le Tour debates his future as ex-girlfriend and recovering addict Marianne (Dana Delany) reenters his life. "Light Sleeper" is a moody, highly atmospheric slowburn of a movie. Set in New York during the garbage strike, Schrader juxtaposes piles of garbage as the well-dressed Le Tour makes his deliveries to Manhattan's elite. Irony? I think so. Willem Dafoe and Susan Sarandon give typical strong performances and we also get a surprisingly good cameo from David Spade of all people. When you factor in that the reliable Paul Schrader wrote and directed this film one could hope this might have been a forgotten classic. Unfortunately adequate would be a better description. Considering the subject matter and Schrader's reputation as a writer, I actually felt the film could have been edgier. Maybe not in a "Taxi Driver" way, but considering La Tour's line of work an earlier element of danger would have helped. And at times (especially with most of the clients) Schrader seemed to mail it in. Oh and the soundtrack was intrusive as well. Overall a nice atmosphere and good work from Dafoe and Sarandon can't quite elevate "Light Sleeper" to the level it should have achieved.

(nl) wrote: Explores the crisis of conscience that afflicts a well-meaning, hen-pecked man in 1941 Czechoslovakia, tasked with being the "Aryan manager" of a small Jewish-owned button shop. Tragic and comic (but mostly tragic) with excellent performances by the two leads. Occasionally drags its heels, but otherwise a fine and thought-provoking work that makes you ask yourself "what would I do?".

(jp) wrote: Directed by George Sidney (Annie Get Your Gun (1951), Scaramouche (1952) and Bye Bye Birdie (1963)), this is an entertaining and somewhat rather overlong musical, but it does have a few enjoyable moments. It shares DNA with what was to come in On The Town (1949), and it helped make Gene Kelly, then a dancer, bit player and choreographer for MGM, into a star and later director in his own right. US Navy sailors Joe Brady (Kelly) and Clarence Doolittle (Frank Sinatra) are granted 4 days of shore leave. They both have their hearts on seeing girls while on leave, however, they soon come across young boy Donald Martin (Dean Stockwell), who has run away from his aunt Susan (Kathryn Grayson) to go and join the navy. Joe and Clarence take him home, and Clarence falls for Susan, and Joe tries to find a way to get Susan to like Clarence, and one little white lie by Clarence to Susan that he knows music producer and conductor Jos Iturbi (as himself) soon spills out of control, and then Joe finds himself falling for Susan as well. Just so you know, for future reference, this is the one where Kelly dances with Jerry Mouse, in a story he tells. It's an amazing little break from the action, which does drag for the most part, but the dancing sequences and musical numbers are well done though.
