(jp) wrote: As we grew together with Dante, it is notable that his police action-based movie has definitely grown darker and That Demon Within is one to-date one of Dante's darkest movie. Unlike previous success, Dante failed to bring the done-till-death psychological action thriller to the next level. To add salt to wound, the plot was a mess with loose and choppy edits and at some point unbearable scripts. While Dante and Nick collaborates well, and with Daniel and Liu Kai Chi following behind closely, the rest seems to be left chasing far behind.A huge disappointment as there are no newness in it at all - Dante with his action thriller scenes and with the rest of the cast plays this kind of same roles many times before.

I like Steve Talley its to bad he had to be in a lame movie where he has boobs for most of it.

(ru) wrote: Bad, but kind of liked it. The scene with Brooke cuddled up with her dad while the romantic song plays is all kinds of wrong, but whole movie is kind of a stretch. Ending was very unclear. I honestly couldn't tell if she went back to him or not. However, it's an 80's movie, albeit not one I ever watched at the time, being about 7 years old when it was released. Brooke was very beautiful and I did like her white dress, although I did wonder if they were actually intending it to look like a wedding dress!I had no idea James Spader was in this. Apparently Tom Cruise is too, although I couldn't pick him (probably a plus!). Very different to the "new" Endless Love movie, though there are similarities, of course. I enjoyed that, so I'm glad about that as it means I don't have to choose which is better.

I worked in this South Bronx neighborhood from '05-'09 and felt there were lush cinematic moments that truly captured the complex textures of the neighborhood. The main plot-line is never truly resolved, a la Citizen Kane, and I think that is brilliant given the world the film tries to capture. I enjoyed the film but thought it was bogged down by a lack of focus and its regressions to the world of TV cop procedural.
(au) wrote: American films from the 1970's have a different feel, although I suppose I'm thinking pretty specifically about films by Bob Rafelson or Bob Altman. But there are probably countless other examples of these kinds of character-driven (not formulaic) films that are funky and good-looking but not overly stylized with great soundtracks. Maybe we should throw Scorsese in here or F. F. Coppola and that might make sense since Jonathan Demme, like these two, began with exploitation films. Sure, Melvin and Howard is a 1980 film but it clocks in just under the wire before the blockbuster really changed things for the worse and marketing took over art in Hollywood. But I digress. Melvin and Howard is an easy going tale based on the real story of a blue collar man who picks up Howard Hughes one night in his pick-up truck and ends up being mentioned in Hughes' will (to the tune of 156 million). The movie actually focuses on Melvin Dummar (Paul Le Mat) and his life, with all of its ups and downs, marriages and divorces to wacky Mary Steenburgen (a stripper/dancer), and move up to Utah from Vegas. Demme films it all on location and it feels real and very 1970s America when people coped as best they could and often gave it their all.

(ag) wrote: Its one every scifi fan should see. Despite the name this is a very well done pre-Star Trek movie. If you think that its about a year or two older than the original Star Trek then you will have an easier time renting/adding it to your queue. It certainly has better dialog than most scifi flix of its time.
