Crop And Save
atrocious fight movie
Makes absolutely no sense. Kill someone, then they come back to life. Or they don't. No rhyme or reason. Could not believe Beckinsale was in the movie. Could not believe John Saxon WASN'T in it! Pure schlock and could not wait for the movie to end. Didn't even have the class to be camp or ultrabad. Vampires vs werewolves storyline was silly and arbitrary and I had the feeling I was watching the same fights again and again. One of the rare movies I found myself nodding out on.
The Sixth Sense (1999)
A "sucker punch" I never saw coming...
One of the best films I've ever seen. Don't even like Bruce Willis normally. So sad. Willis too, walked away like I did, shaking his head. So downright tragic without really being able to pinpoint why I cared SO much about the characters. Very scary, too. Yet, a movie I could see again and again and enjoy more and more, having gotten over a strong initial shock. A GREAT MOVIE! See it and experience a once in a lifetime event. Then see it again without being shocked by the ending and enjoy the story content, as well as the performances---even more!
All Fall Down (1962)
masterpiece of actors more famous elsewhere...
Guess what? Aside from All Quiet on the Western Front, this darn movie sticks in my mind more than most downer movies... you simply can't believe how completely uncomfortable you become, moment by moment, as the unfolding family disaster gets simply worse and worse---and worse, till finally the increasingly disjointed, insular world of everyone in the movie comes completely unravelled. Eve Marie Saint escapes---perhaps to North by Northwest---where her career hits a brick wall, but everyone else goes on to newer, better things moviewise, careerwise. Sadly overlooked, like "Mike's Murder" years later, this film burns a hole in the memory and one but wonders whatever happened to the early sixties era in which it was produced. Definitely not what I remember of the sixties---in and of itself, a dead era. This is in fact not a sixties movie, though produced in 1962---it is the definite deathknell of fifties entertainment and attitudes, combined with a great monstermother (Angela Lansbury) of a movie besides! Watch in particular Brandon de Wilde and Berry Berry (Warren Beatty) mix it up---well worth the price of admission!
A very dreary, feel-bad movie, overly long and hard to follow with a nauseating ending. I seldom hear so much good about a movie, then turn out so disappointed. Would be boring, except that it continually sinks lower and lower, finally doing away with the only comforting thing in the film... leaving everyone, including the audience, feeling utterly alone and positively screwed (betrayed?)! Maybe good for fans of, say... David Lynch, but this film focuses much too much on the seamy side of life without actually doing much more than glory in its own dirty dinginess---wallowing in it!
The Front Page (1974)
Failed comedy/overdramatic attempt at portraying journalism
I think this is the most boring, worst film I've ever seen. Absolutely PAINFUL to watch... can see the ratings weighted by journalistic types who simply LOVE to watch themselves portrayed as hardworking, conscientious types---instead of the jack-of-all trades, master of none dabblers who seldom penetrate down to the truth, but rely upon and create imagery having little to do with the reality they report. This movie drags on and on... on a par with "The Frisco Kid" for the perfect drive-in movie where absolutely nothing happens to detract from the "action" in the car!
Science Fiction/Action Adventure/Horror Classic
A bangup movie nothing like the original classic---a movie onto its own and every bit as good as "Alien." Some say better, though each movie complements the other; unlike the nearly mediocre sequels which followed, though "Resurrection" had its moments, here the logic and plot is up to the standard of the original. Aliens starts out slow and then never lets up! Ripley is superb, though this time it's the action and fighting which steals the show. Never lets up once it gets started!
Simply the best and most original sci-fi film ever made. A career-maker for every actor in it. My favorite! A scary rollercoaster ride down, down, downhill into hell on an otherwise routine space voyage, which turns into unbelievable tension throughout the film. One is never sure whether the unwanted alien "hitchhiker" can ever be killed...
Sci-fi movie that sets the modern "standard" in the tradition of "Plan 9 from Outer Space"
Music that grinds on the nerves like fingernails on a blackboard, acting that is so zombielike it was a shame to waste the cast by not making a second movie; casting everyone in it as true zombies---with the cast of Sabrina the Teenaged Witch as the heroes... a movie so downright awful that if "stoners" were still around it might be considered a cult movie---but, oh so amateurish, the scripts might as well have been carried around by the actors, their lines read as they slowly shuffled through the movie---banal, illogical sets modeled after LA subdivisions, props straight from ToysRus! Was a movie ever made that is so completely and totally inept??? Logic flies to the wind in this plodding, senseless, pointless and with a "monster" so stupid and uncoordinated that it couldn't catch a turtle in an icebox---lowcut, leggy---and amazon! It kept my attention all the way through; the way a terrible, ongoing chain accident in the fog involving multiple vehicles keeps one watching to the very end... as, after a ridiculous ray-gun fight in a prison on another planet, a pneumaticaly-disadvantaged sexy and mentally unbalanced bounty hunter chases a retarded extra-terrestrial fugitive---TO EARTH! Don't let anybody p**s on your popcorn, you might actually enjoy watching this one. It's that bad!
The Mercenaries (1968)
A really memorable film experience---33 years later I remember it well!!!
Just a really good film with imagery you will never forget. I will always remember the encampment overrun by the Mao Mao and the black natives glee as they found a group of white nuns and were in the process of... well, this was only a few frames of film that demonstrate the total intensity and imagery of this film. The "Heart of Darkness" feelings and moody atmosphere of the train going through the jungle was awesome! Action scenes were great!
Night of the Demon (1957)
Fifties b/w horror; it doesn't get any better than this!
One of the most memorable HORROR movies ever made. No details, but the end is unforgettable! Builds slowly and logically to a conclusion that will give you nightmares. Not recommended for young children, as it preys on deep-seated fears and WILL cause nightmares! It did for me; still does!A curse follows a document and all that possess it face a fate much, much worse than death. Top form special effects back in the fifties decade comparable to the best today. A truly scary roller-coaster ride straight down to hell!
