Filmmaker Todd Verow revisits his own youth for his latest work. The film's main character is Joe, who, like the director, grew up in Bangor in Maine. Joe, an 18 year old high school senior who longs to move away from poor white trash roots and this town, and dreams of attending art school, lives with his single mother and older sister Theresa on a notorious council estate called "Capehart Projects". Molested at the age of ten, Joe nevertheless decides to keep the incident to himself. He befriends an elderly disabled artist named Victor who hires him as houseboy/model. Joe moves in with Victor in his loft above the local opera house, hoping to escape Bangor with his help. He also works part time at a local market along with his sister, who wants to get out of town as much as he does. For most of high school, Joe has also had a crush on his best friend, Andrew, who plays on the high school football team.

It was nice to know both sides of the story, both Bryce's and Julie's thoughts. In addition, it was cool how they combined an average middle- schooler's life with an exciting love story.Jewel: I thought that Bryce and Julie should have just kept a distance from each other! I do not really think Bryce's dad should have treated the Baker family wrongly. He was a judgmental hypocrite.Danbo: The movie "Flipped" is a good movie. It is wonderful how they show both points of view of the main characters, Julie and Bryce. Although some things are not explained, such as why Bryce's dad hated music, it was overall a satisfying movie. I like how the time of the movie was depicted, and it is a story that anyone can relate to.

Charlie makes the horrible discovery when he opens his bag to find 8 severed heads. He and his fianc Laurie (Kristy Swanson) desperately try to ditch the bag of heads in a nice, unassuming place, while Pesci roughly interrogates Charlie's pal Ernie (David Spade). Good for a few chuckles and David Spade provides some laughs during the scenes that he shares with Joe Pesci.

WT...... and despite all the star phenomena qualities and marketing, Madonna just can not sing. I hated this in the movies back in 1996-97 and I truly hated it now. Why did I waste my afternoon??? A good quick history lesson but why make it a musical? WHY?

Soon there is murder and suspicion on hands. Michael Biehn plays excellently "friend" role, who has some skeletons hidden in the closet.

Greg B (ru) wrote: A great film unjustly underrated, an American landmark. The 2nd phase in the gangster as a 3 dimensional character and also perhaps has the greatest ending of them all in the classic age of the gangster film. Cagney's performance is the performance of his career he never I feel reached the same level as an actor; he always played two extremes either a nice guy (Yankee Doodle Dandy) or a living Satan (White Heat). Rocky Sullivan is a perfect balance of showing both extreme sides in Cagney as an actor. Curtiz I would say never made a more beautifully shot film or had material of this quality ever again in his career. O'Brien as Father Jerry is the priest we would all want to confess to. Bogart knows how to make death look cheap.

Brinn O (es) wrote: A solid creature feature. The direction is a little weak, and the plot is pretty unever and formulaic, but, the sureal atmosphere and the titular creature.. really makes it worth wild. Especially the last twenty minutes, where you get to see some monster action. The effects are actually quite great.
