I haven't seen the other Kickboxer movies, but if they're anything like this exceedingly racist, poorly choreographed campfest, it's a miracle they even reached the 4th installment. That said, I highly recommend this movie to anyone who regularly scours Netflix Instant. It's one of the better picks.

(mx) wrote: Easily avoidable romantic comedy drama here. It's like Lost in Translation meets The Graduate in the worst way possible. British sex beast Michael Caine (love his flixster pic) & Joseph Bologna move or take a vacation (they never really say) to Rio with their 2 hot daughters which include a young Demi Moore & 17 year old Michelle Johnson who steals every scene from Demi. And look whose career took off! Caine & Johnson end up hooking up & from there this movie just becomes a game of keep our secret hidden. Suspense is almost non existent though. And the characters are under developed, especially Bologna. Caine has a few good lines, but he can't save this movie. Plus its aged terribly.
(ru) wrote: Yusei oji (Prince of Space) is one of the stranger curiosities amongst the terrible Japanese exports of yesteryear. While the movie itself is pretty bad, the English dubbing of it was done by an Italian company, so all of the dialogue has a New Jersey accent to it at times. The plot itself follows a group of people in Japan (I think, although the Eiffel Tower is in there too) as an alien race attempts to take over, only to be saved by the aforementioned Prince of Space. The film was released in 1959 (not 1962) and didn't make a dent at all. It's mostly notable today for being featured on a rather good episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. It's hard to find today, but I'm sure you can find a copy if you're curious enough about it.
(gb) wrote: Fellini's movies often involve innocents at cruel odds with a cynical world. In his beloved Giulietta Masina, he found a ideal human form for this theme. Petite, almost elfin, warm and spirited, she was the perfect muse for his vision as the greatness of his movies waxed in the late '50s.In La Strada, she plays an almost impossibly innocent woman enslaved to a brutish circus performer. In Nights of Cabiria, Fellini puts her into a seemingly polar opposite. She plays Cabiria, a strong-willed, resilient prostitute, unafraid and defiantly independent. Her principle dilemma is how much of her heart she should permit to open. This is the soul of the movie, Cabiria's attempt to negotiate how much to let in and how much to seal out.She maintains a veneer of cynicism, but still manages to open her heart, unwisely to the detestable men she meets, but also to spirituality. She puts her heart into a trip she and her prostitute friends make to a shrine to pray for grace to the Virgin Mary, and a week later realizes that she is the same old whore she was before, that she never got the grace she prayed for, and lapses into a spiteful harangue to a passing parade of nuns. Later, however, she meets a kind-hearted Catholic brother, and she allows him to reconsider the promise of the Church. She goes to the church the next day to confess her sins to him, but he is not there, and in any case, he cannot hear her confession because he is not yet ordained. Rather than confess to another priest, she tells him she will wait for his ordination. The Church would like you to think that their priests are interchangeable for the purpose of the sacraments, but she knows better. She saw a spirit in him that others lacked, and that's to whom she would open her heart.There is one particular scene that is the most important in the movie, and appallingly, it was excluded from the film for over 40 years. One morning, trying to make her way back home after entertaining a customer, Cabiria witnesses a man silently distributing food and necessities to the poorest of the poor, people living in hollows beside the roads on the outskirts of the city. She recognizes one of the poor folk as an ex-prostitute she used to work beside, now haggard and destitute. The man goes about his charity, and gives Cabiria a lift back to the city. The man is not in clerical garb and his function is never explained. It's just a thing he does, matter-of-factly, without reward or praise. Cabiria observes him as if he is an exotic creature. She does not understand why he does what he does, but she perceives some special kind of grace from his action.Of all the scenes in this movie, filled with prostitutes and unflattering images of the Church, the scene that the Church wanted cut from this movie was this one, because it shows a layman tending to the people that the Church should have been aiding. The scene was cut, and not restored until 1998. I suppose this scores low on the list of grievances one might have with the Catholic Church (please see my review of Spotlight), but we can recognize the Church's demand to cut this scene of quintessential human kindness as typically venal and disgraceful.
