Ian R (fr) wrote: This probably should have been called Edamville, as it is pure shore-to-shore cheesiness.When I see films like these I'm always puzzled, even a low budget movie costs a fortune so how can one get all the way from script to edit without anyone pointing out that every single bit of it is crap?It doesn't take big money to take a blue pencil to a script with massive plot holes and leaden, over-ridden dialogue. It doesn't take millions to point out that circa 1980 silly, floppy latex costumes and swords look ridiculous. You don't have to be an artistic genius to figure out that twins shouldn't have a 20 year age difference or to spot that the acting needs some eggs to go with that ham.A disgraceful waste of money thrown at something that obviously holds its demographic in disdain.

Alejandro R (au) wrote: I went into this movie assuming it was a documentary and was fine with that, but was then incredibly and very pleasantly surprised to find that it was a well-laid out story with tremendous authenticity. Great film that really seems to capture the lives of a traditional people in a very rugged landscape. Beautifully shot on location, which adds such value to the overall production.
Peter S (es) wrote: Another masterpiece from Quentin Tarantino. Excellent script and cinematography, knockout performances from an all star cast and just all around excellent. For those of you expecting as much violence as his two previous movies or kill bill, you won't find it here. However, it's still a must see all around.

Kevin R (nl) wrote: Looking at the box cover and reading some of the stuff about the film it didn't sound familiar. Then I watched the trailer and of course I remember Lucas now. I was 8 when it came out so probably saw it on video in '87 or '88. It took a while longer then for things to make it to video. :PI could rate it based on recollections off the trailer but should watch it again and hit +Want to see. though I don't really want to see it too bad. Being Winona's first film would be the only reason.

Phil H (fr) wrote: Yep back in 1981 Disney were in cahoots with Paramount and the result was this quite dark film. I mean how much more badass could this idea be?! a sorcerers apprentice must come to grips with his powers, learn his trade and save the land from a 400 year old dragon whilst trying to fend off a pesky knight of the realm. Basically its just an excuse for some dragon battling in a time honoured Tolkien way.I haven't seen this film since I was a little kiddie, long before the days of knowing what 'The Lord of the Rings' was anyway. First impressions are how Tolkien-like the visuals actually are. It was all filmed in the wilderness of Wales and the Isle of Skye and it really looks tremendous. The sweeping lush valleys, the green woodlands, the rocky mountainous dragons lair, wide misty lakes and typically traditional old fashioned dank medieval castles. It all looks so damn good visually it doesn't actually look like Wales or the Isle of Skye, it looks too nice!. Some sequences could of been cut out of Ridley Scotts 'Legend', it has that fairy fantasy vibe at times, you half expect some Elves or Dwarf warriors to turn up.Admittedly for a kick ass title like this the film takes it time in delivering some dragon slaying. Most of the time we see the rather odd choice of hero in Peter MacNicol arguing with the King, arguing with the Kings main knight who wears a silly helmet, looking perplexed, attempting magic, getting locked up and finding out that a young boy is actually a young woman. How in the hell he couldn't see this I don't know. The plot about the King holding a lottery that chooses young girls to be sacrificed to the dragon to appease it is pure fairytale stuff (this is why that one woman disguises herself as a bloke). The Princess finds out her father the King has rigged it so she never gets chosen, so she bravely opts to get sacrificed. Somehow the King can't stop this decision even though he's King so its up to MacNicol to save her.Really the whole crux of the film is the last half where MacNicol must fight the dragon with his big dragon slaying spear, his magic shiny ring which he got from his sorcerer Master and dragon scale shield. Its the effects that make this film stand up and get counted, for the time the effects were mind blowing and they ain't half bad now. A classical mix of stop motion, puppets, large scale puppets, bluescreen and some matte paintings bring the dragon to life. I can't deny the visuals do get a bit creaky as the film progresses through to the big confrontation. Bluescreen becomes very obvious, especially against the stop motion dragon, the flying sequences are a bit iffy looking and the stop motion isn't quite as good as I remembered. Its the puppets and large scale dragon heads that take your breathe away, some really nice detail and great fire breathing effects...even if the dragon design is a bit standard and unadventurous.The other thing that hit me was the level of shock factor in this film. We do see poor old Ian McDiarmid get incinerated up close, we do see the Princess get half eaten by baby dragon puppets, one has its mouthful with her foot!, there is a haunting sequence where a young girl gets torched alive (you hear her screams) and we do see someone getting run through with a spear. In short there is a reasonable amount of blood on show here! I was surprised.Its quite a slow film with a lot of character building which is a tad dull but it works. The whole plot to kill the dragon does seem pretty convoluted really, they're messing around with magic rings, spells, resurrection blah blah blah when all you wanna see is MacNicol hack at the dragon with a large sharp weapon. End of the day they kill it with a remotely detonated old sorcerer via the magic ring it seems, kinda made me think why we had to go through everything just to do that. But I guess the old sorcerer had to die to come back as a magical explosive old sorcerer resurrected from the dragons fiery underground lake...whatever.The film appears to be your bog standard fantasy film where the hero must save the Princess from the dragon, but it isn't, the Princess gets eaten!. The plot also feels a bit heavy at times, a bit bloated with magic when really you just wanna see a bit more kickassery, I guess in this day and age a remake would give you that for sure. I can't moan about the plot as it is well done and offers more than just hack n slash, the characters are all pretty good really which isn't expected. This is a fantasy so you half expect high levels of flaming grilled cheese but no, everyone plays it straight and it works well, I especially liked the portrayal and look of 'King Casiodorus'.So no this isn't entirely a silly childish fairytale story, far from it. The visuals may trick you into thinking this at times but its quite a bleak film mostly. For me I just wanted to watch it again for the dragon sequences, there I said it, I'm sure most would be the same truth be told. In that sense the film doesn't disappoint, despite its age the film offers some great draconem action, and yes I did feel sorry for the dragon when its babies got slain by the hero pfft! screw you hero!.
Filippo V (mx) wrote: Una simpatica avventura molto colorata per bambini e giovani ragazzi. Ha uno stile molto particolare che a tratti riesce a coinvolgere, ma che troppo spesso fatica a mantenere alto il nostro interesse. Nel complesso un film discreto, ma di certo non tra i migliori di Tim Burton.
Ola G (es) wrote: In 2056 AD, Earth is in ecologic crisis as a consequence of pollution and overpopulation. Automated interplanetary missions have been seeding Mars with atmosphere-producing algae as the first stage of terraforming the planet. When the oxygen quantity produced by the algae is inexplicably reduced, the crew of Mars-1 investigate; a crew consisting of Dr. Quinn Burchenal (Tom Sizemore), an agnostic geneticist, Dr. Bud Chantilas (Terence Stamp), an aging philosophical scientist and surgeon, systems engineer Robby Gallagher (Val Kilmer), commander Kate Bowman (Carrie-Anne Moss), pilot Lt. Ted Santen (Benjamin Bratt), and terraforming scientist Chip Pettengill (Simon Baker). When Mars 1 is damaged in arrival, Bowman remains aboard for repair while the others land to locate an automated habitat established earlier to manufacture food and oxygen. During insertion, the team's landing craft is damaged and crash-lands off-course. In the aftermath, "AMEE" (Autonomous Mapping Exploration and Evasion), a military robot programmed to guide them, is lost, and Chantillas suffers a ruptured spleen and internal bleeding, and tells the others to leave him behind. Santen refuses, but Chantillas tells them that they only have eight hours of oxygen left to make it to HAB 1, the automated habitat placed on Mars. Chantillas tells Gallagher that it's all right, as he got to see Mars for the first time, and the others leave to allow Chantillas to die in peace. In orbit around Mars, Bowman contacts Earth, which informs her that Mars-1 is in decaying orbit, but offers hope of restoring engine function in departing Mars.The crew must depend on one another for survival on the hostile surface of Mars, their doubts, fears and questions about God, man's destiny and the nature of the universe become defining elements in their fates. In this alien environment they must come face to face with their most human selves..."Red Planet" has a great cast with Sizemore, Kilmer, Stamp, Kilmer, Moss, Bratt and Baker and all give solid performances in this apocalyptic science fiction thriller adventure. The set up with Earth on the verge of dying is as current as ever as it was back in 2000 when the film was produced and this creates a sense of "now" when re-seeing it. However, the idea in the film how to terraform Mars by growing a special type of algae on the surface of the planet might be a bit farfetched and believable as a storyline. Then again its a film, not reality. Parts of the problem with "Red Planet" is the script that doesnt manage to explain certain plot twists, certain scenes and certain actions as well. This keeps making the film feel a bit messy plus the CGI is not up to scratch all the time. Which also builds on the unbalance in the film. Having Stamp die that early on in the film is a mistake in my book, as he adds so much weight. And why is Carrie-Anne Moss put in a nude shower situation that really doesnt add anything to her character and the fact that she keeps on walking around in see through tank tops a bigger part of the movie. Great actress and a beautiful woman for sure, but those scenes are simply not necessary. "Red Planet" is not too bad, but theres too much that doesnt connect in the story and it never really becomes that exciting as you would hope it would.
Tori F (de) wrote: While a couple people could improve on their acting skills, the movie does a great job at conveying the very real situations that students face at college. While some can argue the dimension of the characters or even the movie as a whole, this movie stood its ground in providing quality substance. (There are countless movies that are about shallow things that people think is fantastic.) This at least brought something new and refreshing to the table. Well done.
