(kr) wrote: Of Time and the City is a very introspective and insightful look at director Terence Davies, a man whose past led him to believe hatred would be all he found when returning to Liverpool after 35 years.Davies attempts to dissect the reasons why he left Liverpool in the first place (namely the surge of Rock and Roll and his hatred of the Catholic Church) and how they impacted his life. He does this in the film by giving short spurts of dialog mixed with images and different pieces of music that influenced the period he is reminiscing about.While the film has no plot or even a real time line to speak of, Davies reveals so much about his youth and struggles that you cannot help but be entertained by what you're listening to. Even if you don't agree with his words (of love them to death, like I did), you're learning more about a man you've never met than you probably know about your own friends.The kind of details he reveals delve into thoughts of homosexuality, how British royalty was essentially corrupt and how ridiculous the entire prospect of religion is. It's very enlightening to see a man not afraid to bear everything to people he'll never even meet.The selection of music may not be personal, but it does keep a lot of the scenes moving along. There are lots of periods of time where nothing but images will be on the screen, so Davies tries to pick songs that will help maintain the flow of what he last said. Things like Anton Bruckner, The Hollies and even The Beatles are cycled through and you really wind up drifting into a thought of your own and reflecting on what Davies revealed about himself.The downside to this style of documentary is that Davies really gives you no reason to ever want to rewatch this film, or even stick through it once. While it may be captivating, is there any reason why you need to know about him? He doesn't even ever state why he suddenly enjoys Liverpool again.The film is also incredibly depressing, even if most critics will tell you a sort of dark comedy exists. Davies gives no positive outlook on the events of his life and what he sees for the future other than that people will always find a way to live.So while I enjoyed myself a lot during this film, I can't recommend it to anyone. It's a solid film, but no something that a lot of people will find intriguing.

(ca) wrote: "Joy Ride" might not be a groundbreaking thriller and sometimes it's pretty silly but it's got its moments and I had fun with it overall. Yes, I realize now that the franchise has turned into full-on horror, but this movie is actually a thriller. It's about a nice guy (Paul Walker as Lewis), his screw-up of a brother Fuller (Steve Zahn) and Lewis' longtime crush Venna (Leelee Sobieski) travelling on the highway when they mess with the wrong guy. After a prank that is not really all that mean-spirited, a trucker begins mercilessly stalking them, and the guy's idea of "getting even" is much too close to "murder" for everyone else's tastes. What I liked about the movie above all is that Steve Zahn and Paul Walker make a convincing set of brothers. I feel like they had some really good, organic dynamics together. I also enjoyed the overall pace of the movie. It keeps moving and coming up with interesting concepts and setups to keep its audience entertained as these people are chased all over the place by this villain. Speaking of which, "Rusty Nail" (as he is called) works as a villain that is partially threatening, psychotic, sympathetic and funny. It keeps the violence to a tasteful level and if you're looking for a horror/thriller film that has a bit of bite but never goes into very gruesome levels (save maybe for a brief scene in the beginning) it's fun and has some good laughs too. I just happened to own this movie on Dvd and if you do too, or if you're renting I have to point out something that I usually don't for these reviews. The Dvd includes what is without a doubt the most extensive set of alternate endings I've ever seen. One of them is almost a completely different film due to its 30+ min. running time so there's some good bang for your buck here too. Good stuff. (On Dvd, October 30, 2012)

(ru) wrote: Alright so now I'm touching on the best picture winners from back in the 40's. And to start that off, I have just finished seeing the film that won best picture back in 1941 even thought many believed that it should've been Citizen Kane considering that, that film has become one of the greatest films of all time. So here's my review for How Green Was My Valley. Plot: The film revolves roughly around a young boy named Hue Morgan who lives in a valley in South Wales coalfield with his welsh family containing his parents and 5 older brothers and his older sister, Angharad. As the movie goes on, Hue and his family witness all sorts of happiness and tragedy that the people of the valley go through as part of telling what everyday life back then was like. Okay so the obvious thing to point out that I do agree that Citizen Kane should not have lost to this film in any way shape or form. But does that mean it's a bad or so-so film like some of the winners I've recently seen like Cimmaron, The Great, Ziegfield, and The Last Emperor? Actually no this time. While it's not a masterpiece, the film is enjoyable simply because of what it is really about. Telling us what life was like for those people. They used some good actors that gave us characters to care about - most notably, to me was probably Walter Pidgeon, Maureen O'Hara, Donald Crisp, and Sara Allgood as Mr. Gruffydd, Angharad, and Mr. and Mrs. Mogan respectively, and gave us things that they face that altogether made this movie touching and dramatic with all the joys and hardships that these people went though. It was a well made film that might not exactly had a main plot line outside of just showing their lives, but it was still enjoyable with how they did it and what kinds of characters and events they had that didn't make it worthy for winning best picture, but a nice enough film that it's at least a respectable movie to lose to. And that's basically there is to say for my review for How Green Was My Valley.
