Color Me Perfect (1996) (TV)

Female "Charly", 22 January 2001

The same story of "Charly" (Oscar winning for Cliff Robertson) or its novel "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes, but starring by a female, Michele Lee in a one-woman-show. Very bad, very conservative, and very narcisist, with Lee as the central point of all, and a horrible happy ending.

Strange Spanish musical fantasy, 30 October 2000
7/10

A strange musical drama, with some surrealistic ideas and a subterranean homosexual allegory, is about a young man son of a VIP, that like dance and very rude men. A rarity in Spanish cinema, that ignorant censors don't understand and can be see today as an error of them

One of worst Spanish movies, 30 October 2000
1/10

"Plan Nine from Outer Space" the worst movie of all? Don't! It's this! A classic representative movie of Paco Martínez Soria's movies, about an old man from a little town who proclaims his conservative morality and his pedestrian ideas. Primitive in all his means.

Pedestrian homophobic comedy, 30 October 2000
1/10

A man simulates be homosexual for be near of women and see, touch them. A very bad movie, with pedestrian and homophobic humour, it's the classic example of the old Spanish "machismo". It's very representative of a happily extinct period of Spanish cinema, and it tell name to a type of movies named "landismo" (by his leader actor, Alfredo Landa), about reprimed and sexual altered men.

Poor remake of a classic of Spanish cinema, 30 October 2000
3/10

Poor remake of the masterpiece of Ladislao Vajda, with the poetry of the original convert in a style like a mini-series of qualite. Only the good performances of old actors have interest, but the movie don't have interest in contrast with it's original.

The masterpiece of Spanish western, 26 June 2000
7/10

Based on a real story about director's grandmother, a very sad western with great fatalism. Very good directing, good performances -specially Jesús Puente, sometimes Spanish voice for James Stewart-, superb cinematography, this is a little big movie that must be seen.

Very ugly monster parody, 26 June 2000
1/10

Regaliz, a Spanish musical group for childs, go to a castle and torture the classical monsters: Dracula, the Monster of Frankenstein, the Wolfman (Paul Naschy) and Quasimado. Sometimes, they torture us singing. A horrible movie, that doesn't like to people to love classic monster movies of Universal.
