But most of these women did not resolve their problems so it resurfaces several years later during a friend reunion/wedding. Most of the issues each of the women deal with are realistic ( I can imagine these issues occurring to anyone). The acting was decent from the actresses and actors. The problems that arise is what kept my interest in the movie.

Andy S (ca) wrote: Zelary came highly recommended by a good friend, so I was determined to like it. I didn't. Now, mind you, it isn't a terrible film or in the same league as "A Very Long Engagement" (another lengthy Foreign Film, which follows so many rabbit holes one fails to care much about any character by the end). Zelary tells a compelling and straight forward tale that only starts to unravel at the end upon the arrival of the Russians. The filmmakers do a good job of drawing in the audience such that we truly care about the characters and are invested in the film and its outcome. However, herein lies the problem . . . not that we care about the characters (which is a sign of a good story well-executed), but that things don't end well for our beloved characters. It is on this latter point that my friend and I diverge in opinion. She loves the film because it tells an honest story and provides an accurate, historically-based portrayal of life in Czechoslovakia during WWII. Perhaps even more, she values that the film shows the development of true love in a simple (and stunning) setting and the importance of communication. While this may be true, I see the purpose of art not so much as an undertaking to reflect reality, but an endeavor to transcend reality and show life as we would want it and not necessarily as it is. Life is hard, and we need happy endings. We need to believe that true love lasts and life can end well. Of course, in my saying so, I am perhaps reflecting my American heritage while my friend is reflecting her European background. I admit that I am highly predisposed to prefer happy endings in my cinema, but I challenge you to walk away from a film like Zelary with a kick-in-your-step and an upbeat attitude. If you can, all the better for you, but if you're anything like me you're going to find Zelary a downer of a film.

Voices From Beyond isn't necessarily bad but it is very passable.This film, much like Fulci's TV Movie House of Clocks, really acts like an Italian Twilight Zone episode stretched out to feature length done Fulci style. Here we get a very rich family whose father dies a mysterious death. The father talks to himself (even though he's dead) throughout most of the film trying to figure out his murderer. His favorite daughter (who's the same actress from the film House of Clocks...and a fine looker I might add) visits for the funeral and her dead father communicates to her that he's been murdered and wants her to find the killer.The story (written by Fulci) is a tired weak formula and overall this really feels like a TV made film. It wasn't made for TV but it does have the same feel as House of Clocks. Also like many of Fulci's later works this movie was filmed with soft lenses giving the film a white hue, or a hazy look. I often hate this soft lens look that dominated Italian cinema in the late 80's and early 90's. Sometimes it just cheapens the look of a film for me. Fulci no doubt was trying to give his films "dreamy" or "surreal" look but it just gets old. Unless you are a die-hard Fulci fanatic, I would think twice about paying the high price for this on DVD (especially since now it is out-of-print). Though Image Entertainment does a good job at mastering this little seen film they failed to deliver any special features what-so-ever. I personally just found the film to be kind of blah and it lacks the grander look and appeal of his early films that even the weaker Manhattan Baby contained.On a side note, horror fans might find it of interest that Fulci thanks Clive Barker in the end credits.

Rob C (mx) wrote: When people think of Michael Jackson and his music career, we instantly think of the songs and videos for Bad, Billie Jean, Beat It, and Rock With You. But, one video and album stood the test of time and is still considered his greatest achievement yet, Thriller. This half hour presentation has the King of Pop delivering what he does best, and that's performing. Thriller is filled with show-stopping makeup effects in the characters and one of his most entertaining tracks. The prominent voice of Vincent Price accompanies the film as the characters of Jackson and Ola Ray skip along the creepy atmospheric set-up of this iconic mini-film. This is the kind of film that cannot be remade, only viewed in all it's ethereal magnificence.
