Jenifer Tilly and Gina Gershon are great as dyke ex-cons who fall in love
and then steal money from the mob. Their love/sex scenes are wonderfully
erotic; very well filmed and acted.
Joe Pantoliano(Ceaser) is always good. He's a natural as a gangster.
This one has a lot of violence, some unnecessary. The story is interesting and will keep your attention till the end. If you like crime and lesbians, you'll like this.
George Lucas DEPENDS ON computer graphics and the Star Wars reputation to
sell tickets for this one. He made a movie in a computer, and filled in the
holes with actors. Two Jedi knights set out on a mission to save a queen and
her kingdom from a greedy empire.
Money and graphics a good movie make does not. Poor Natalie Portman and Liam Neeson, two of the most passionate and talented actors in movies today, and they were never given a chance to mesmerize the audience which they do so well. It appeared they were just following bad directing, and reading their lines off of cards. I know they're much better than this.
This movie has no personality whatsoever. The characters lack personality, the script lacks personality; everything is boring. The directing is bad, and the writing is worse. As I watched the credits roll by at the end of the flick, I thought "look how many people it takes to make a cr-p movie(insert "a").
I wasted $18 U.S. per ticket(regular price) for this one in Japan, don't you waste your money. It's going take some real convincing to get me to cough up cash for the next episode.
I give it a 3 for the graphic effects only, which we already know are the best anywhere, but so what.
George good businessman is, good writer/director not is.
Mulan is very entertaining. The only daughter of an old, disabled father
goes to war in his place to fight the Mongols who have breached the Great
This is a typical Disney movie; the same characters set in a different time and place. but it is still worth watching if you don't mind that. Mushu(Eddie Murphy), Mulan's comical sidekick, is very funny. Eddie does a great voice, and Mushu's jokes are funny! I watched it twice just for the comical entertainment, and little for the feeling of adventure too.
I recommend it. I gave it a 9.
This is possibly the best Mafia movie you could ever see.
Ray Liotta, in one of his best roles, narrates throughout the movie, and
This movie tries to show the true feeling of being a gangster; you never
know who your friends are, and never trust anyone.
De Niro is good, Pesci is good, and the direction by Scorcese is good.
movie is hard, cold and cruel. It's highly recommended.
A high school reunion for a small town suburb somewhere in the east U.S. Good acting by Rosie O'Donnell, although she always plays the same character. Matt Dillon is okay, although we've seen him do this character hundreds of times. Timothy Hutton is okay, although a very depressing guy; somebody get him a comb. Natalie Portman is great; one of the best actresses in movies today. Overall, the movie is gloomy, gray and depressing. We are supposed to feel sympathy for them, but I didn't. They are all holding on to the past. None of them, except maybe for "Mo", he is a father and husband, have anything to look forward to, at least that's how they present themselves. They're always grieving over something. Anyone who holds on the their miserable past, deserves to be miserable. Halfway through this one I wanted to slash my wrists, but I turned it off instead. I gave it a 5 only for the acting, otherwise it gets a 2.
Will Smith(Paul) comes into the lives of Stockard Channing(Ouisa) and
Sutherland(Flan) and makes them, Ouisa if not Flan, realize how
their lives are living on the ritzy upper eastside, loaded with dough.
Sutherland and Channing play the roles perfectly together.
Of course Paul is lost in what he's doing too; he's smart but sick, and Ouisa & Flan together make a great sick couple so full of themselves.
I'm not watching it again.
Will Smith, Stockard Channing and Donald Sutherland are very good. The
characters are sick; what they do is sick; how they act is sick; what they
say is sick. If you're sick, you'll love it. All others stay
A frustrating flick, unless you appreciate sick. It gets a 3.
A New Yawk lawyer(Pesci) goes to a deep south courtroom for his first
case. This is Pesci's character from "Goodfellas" becomes lawyer in a
comedy. He's great. Marisa Tomei is excellent as his girl(won Oscar for
one), she's one of the most beautiful women in movies today. Ralph Macchio
is okay as the young cousin who is wrongly arrested for murder, although
buddy, Rothstein, is funny. Herman Munster(Fred Gwynne) is excellent as the
judge. Pesci, Gwynne and Tomei couldn't be better cast for these roles and
mesh together perfectly. The comic timing is excellent.
You wanna laugh? Watch it. If you enjoy and understand New Yawk accents, you'll appreciate "My Cousin Vinny".
I see all the favorable reviews of this one, and when I first saw this
'89, I thought "great". And it is a leader in the romantic comedy genre.
Billy Crystal has a way of pulling off these kinds of roles. He's good,
great timing, funny almost anywhere. Meg Ryan plays a good part also; she
good in most of her comedy roles. Her serious roles leave little to be
desired. Rob Reiner's direction is good but predictable. We see New York
through a stereotypical camera. He makes us think everyone in NYC is
when they're young, and when they get old, they become Jewish. I suppose
this is humorous to the populace.
Well, I watched it again recently, and I have a question: Am I the only one who thinks these characters whine too much? Don't they have any better things to do with their energy than lament over the slightest trouble they confront? Yes, this is "Seinfeld before Seinfeld", and Seinfeld is funny, but I can't watch it for too long before feeling exhausted.
The movie is about couples and their love troubles. Billy Crystal is charming, woman love this, it's his unintimidating, "I'm fallible" humor. Meg Ryan is made out to be a smart career woman who is stupid(big career woman can't drag a Christmas tree).
Characters suffering from a neurosis for our entertainment is funny, but it's not romantic. Woody Allen invented neurotic, romantic comedies in the movies. That's enough.
If you love the TV comedy "Seinfeld", you'll love this one. If you get tired of "Seinfeld", you know what to expect. It's entertaining but.............
It gets a 6.
The story of the first Americans in space during the early 60's. These
truly are heroes, but this movie unfairly personifies the arrogance and
self-righteousness of American society in these courageous, confident men.
we watch it, it's as if we're supposed to cheer out for their cocky and
bullying behavior(the ugly American). Definitely contrived to appeal to
Americans' sense of patriotism and to polarize the audience(Russia, US
government, and the press - villains vs. astronauts - nice guys). This
prevailing attitude throughout the film, and being that most of these men
were still alive in 1983 and are still alive now(we know them), and that
this is based on real events in recent history, makes it
But that's entertainment.
Conversely, it's well directed(aside from the above) and acted. The effects are well done. It is long but paced well and keeps your interest except for a few short scenes.
Any "fly boy" will love it for it's pride value and the wild, blue yonder; hardheaded American patriots will love it too.
Disclaimer FYI: I don't live in America, but my heart still does.
