Der Schatz im Silbersee (1962)
Very inaccurate western!!!
I just watched this turkey on the Western channel and I must say that it is extremely inaccurate.
First off,the choice of firearms was laughable.I saw Nagant revolvers that didn't come out till the 1890s and even then they were only available in Europe.I also saw what looked like S&W M1917 revolver. Virtually every firearm in this movie was in the wrong place. Even their choice of knives was inaccurate.Two of the characters get into a knife fight with Puma White hunters.Now these knives didn't come out till the 1950s.I guess they were used because they were popular in Europe.
On to the other flaws. The choice of war paint and giving all the indians bows and arrows was just plain ignorant.
All in all,this movie just didn't cut it. 1* out of 5*
Sherman Oaks (1995)
Great Parody of the SoCal Rich
I liked this show in the first season and I liked it even better the second.It basically took aim and fired at everyone. The father was semi helpless and kind of naive too. His wife was your typical rich wife stereotype,but still funny. His wannabe son was just stupid as was his daughter,but I understand that the show needed them. Now my favorite character was the ultra conservative nephew.He was put in as a joke on republicans,but I agreed with his politics anyways. Its really ashame Showtime took this show off the air.
BTW,in the first season the maid was a latina,but in the second she was Asian.
Super Troopers (2001)
I Loved It!!!
Super Troopers was so funny my sides almost split.Everything was funny.And this movie was so original.I always like these kind of comedy.When I want comedy,I want real silliness like this,not lame stuff like "When Harry Met Sally".Supper Troopers is a dream to be watched over and over again.If you have to spend a million dollars to see this,then spend that money.IT'S GREAT. Rating 10 OUT OF 10.
Violencia nocturna (1994)
Justice comes Around ***SPOILERS***
I caught this movie on Telemundo a couple years ago and I must say that it is great for a Mexican action/drama.This is the ultimate revenge movie.****SPOILERS****
I liked this movie because Jorge gets even after thugs break into his house and kill his wife.I was really shocked when the lead thug's girlfriend tried to rape and then accidently killed Jorge's wife. I must say that this isn't typical in these types of movies.
I voted 10 for this movie because it is so rare.This movie is a must see.
Once in the Life (2000)
Great crime drama with good acting.
This is really a great unknown movie.Perfect dialogue without the typical clichés.This movie relied on the actor's talent and it was pulled off.It even had a little bit a comedy in it,but it wasn't overdone.Once in the Life is what a crime drama is supposed to be,not the typical special affects garbage with sex thrown in.I especially loved the interracial aspects of it all.
Now onto the actors themselves. Laurence Fishburne was superb at playing a career petty criminal.It's a shame that he's only allowed to show his talent in his own movie. Titus Welliver was fabulous as Fishburne's junky half-brother. Eamonn Walker added flavor to the already perfectly spiced film. Paul Calderon was perfect as a grease monkey/drug lord.I loved his acting since "King of New York". But the best acting in this film came from Gregory Hines and Michael Paul Chan,who were paired perfectly as two of Calderon's henchmen.
Once in the Life is for sure a keeper. ****1/2* out of *****.
Kung Pow: Enter the Fist (2002)
This movie was not only funny,but it stops and makes you think about yourself in life.I'm actually thinking about changing my major in college because of this.I now understand that you have a very limited number of choices in life and you can't waste them.This movie is what should inspire a person to work hard and laugh while your at it. 10 out of 10.Great Movie!!!
