Under the Boardwalk: The Monopoly Story torrent reviews

Armando B (fr) wrote: This fourth installment in the "Step Up" franchise was a dull. Is pretty much the same thing but new faces and new routines to dance off. I love the first 2 step up films, but once they took out more of this franchise I started to dislike them. I like the comeback of Moose though that was the best part. So for this being the least favorite of the franchise and not really was not that impress, I give "Step Up Revolution" C-.

Emily J (br) wrote: A fun and fresh modern film. It gets kids to learn something & enjoy it as well.

Penni F (gb) wrote: Not bad for a movie that was filmed in ten or twelve days. I thought Joe did a great job. I liked the friendship between Lynn and David and that David stayed true to his wife who he appeared to have been very angry with in the beginning of the movie. Overall, I liked this movie. It is no worse than other syfy types of doomsday movies.

Blake P (de) wrote: The Hollywood satire is a tricky little subgenre - it's a bad case of biting the hand that feeds the director - and it takes a ruthless visionary to deliver results humorous enough to keep executives happy and vicious enough to convince audiences that the foulness is the real deal. The finest, Robert Altman's "The Player" (1992), is a star-studded event that makes Hollywood seem like a place for wolves rather than cheery hopefuls; and David Mamet's "State and Main" (2000), acidic and witty until egos come crashing down, breaks into the top-five while remaining much more lightweight than the former. It's satisfying and breezy, so much so that it's easy to forget just how exquisitely smart Mamet's writing is. "State and Main" follows a film crew to Waterford, Virginia, where Walter Price's (William H. Macy) latest project, "The Old Mill", is headed into production. Equipped with several of the 19th century props needed for the movie, it seems like the perfect location; but when it's discovered that the most pivotal attraction, The Old Mill itself, burned down years ago, it sets off a series of disastrous events that could lead the production into cinematic hell. Star Bob Barrenger's (Alec Baldwin) weakness for teenage girls comes to a head when he begins having an affair with the daughter (Julia Stiles) of the local restauranteur (Ricky Jay), who decides to press charges. Temperamental female lead Claire Wellesley (Sarah Jessica Parker) refuses to take her top off for a pivotal romantic scene; screenwriter Joseph Turner White (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a sensitive introvert, is having trouble with needed rewrites. All this occurs before filming even begins, and a cursed pre-production is no way to marinate a major Hollywood drama. Because most of Mamet's films focus on the intellectual bottom-feeders of society, "State and Main" feels like an anomaly, an unusual reminder that someone so obsessed with crafty shadow dwellers is capable of having a softer side that would prefer to pass the time with comedy than with cons. I might like him better when he's cackling along with the antics of Joe Montegna and Lindsay Crouse in 1987's "House of Games", but that doesn't mean that seeing him having a good time isn't a delicacy. Able to juggle a truckload of characters like a people obsessed puppet-master, Mamet has a natural gift for comedy, perfectly aware that insecurities among celebrities and money quests among productional heads are just as funny as sitcom-ready misunderstandings. His famed Mamet speak (a silky assortment of italics and quaint pauses in his characters' linguistics) is as conspicuous as ever; it suits "State and Main"'s acerbic screwball madness. In all, it feels more like a pastime than a comedic masterpiece from one of films greatest screenwriters, but "State and Main" is a winner all the same: lived in by a well-cast ensemble and deepened by worthy subplots (the low-key romance between Hoffman and Rebecca Pidgeon is my personal favorite), it is a Hollywood satire of rare enthusiasm. It would make for a great stage play - movie execs might be happier that way anyway.

Brogan J (de) wrote: I saw this movie so many times as a kid and have nothing but fond memories of it. Watching it again it's exactly how I remember. It's not a masterpiece, but it doesn't try to be. It's heart-warming and harmless family fun.

Melissa C (gb) wrote: Pretty damn good actually. Fairly tame for a nunsploitation movie, but that's not always a bad thing. It was a really well shot picture and the acting is pretty good. You do get the requisites of this genre. Lesbianism, slight torture, degradation. Not for everybody, but if you love to cross the line with movies and see everything, this certainly isn't a bad place to start.

Geraint O (ca) wrote: Great heist movie- of course we wanted them to succeed but they didn't. Was this a commentary perhaps on post war British decline? How the post War world didn't quite match expectations. More specifically was the League of Gentlemen's heist and it's failure actually an allegory of Suez, where Britain learnt that it wasn't always in the right and that it was no longer a superpower?

Greg W (fr) wrote: people rave and rave about this one-I found it 2b a story about a woman who is a hooker,that's it.

Daniel B (kr) wrote: Just because it succeeds in its aim of being provocative and disturbing doesn't mean it's a worthwhile piece of art. Since Un Chien Andalou defies such concepts as narrative and chronology, it can only be judged by its visuals and composition, which are really quite drab and uninspired. Fortunately, the film doesn't exclusively consist of purely disturbing images but the shots between them can only really be described as boring. Make no mistake, it was important and innovative upon release. But there's really no reason for a modern viewer to spend 16 minutes of their life on it.

But all & all I'm sure it was pretty accurate to a lot of parts of his life.~I give this Bio film a B (Bright)
