Los jornaleros (2003)
Good or bad, but they need to talk about it.
Someone thought this was a good idea and everybody else made their best effort.
Good or bad, the movie had (well, the writer and director had) something to tell and did it.
The only things that jumped, for me, was that they missed some of the mistreatment laborers from corners or Home depot often receive(d), like being dumped far away without being paid, or forcing them or raping them when they didn't want to agree to some other sexual things from gay bosses.
Then, once in the house and all of them working one way or another, five people, two with regular jobs, couldn't sustain the hose and bills.
In México all of them ''spoke only Spanish'' and here, thanks to their uncle, speak English not only outside, but also inside the house, where they suppose to speak in Spanish because is their mother language. I didn't feel that like a natural thing to do. The rest is OK and I appreciate the effort.
El bombero atómico (1952)
There's no small roles
The movie is very good. The first half revolves around Cantinflas being a Fireman and the second half him being a policeman.
What I see strange, is that the credits show only 10 names, including Cantinflas, and then when we watch the movie we can spot at least 20 more people, women in their majority, with bigger roles than the first 10, all of them uncredited.
I know that credits belong to those who spend more time on screen, but here, everybody gets dialog and screen time, and only a few get their credits. Not to sound disrespectful, but I think it is important to us, who watch the movies, to get to know each and every one of the people in the movie...
Be careful what you dream of...
What I got from this movie is that Mercedes (Marín) had a psychic dream where she saw the future. She didn't know it was a dream until she started experiencing in her life everything that happened in her dream. The problem was, in her dream, she had been killed by her husband (Salazar) and his new wife (Roth)-former private secretary. Another funny thing was, in her dream she saw an Indian (Mistral), who in the real life was Frank, her husband boss. Both Mercedes and Frank feel something very strong between them, and later we find out he had another dream that same night at the same time. In his dream he got killed too, in an automobile accident. As everything is happening according to their dreams, they decide to let them come true and get together in heaven, so the night when Frank will have the accident, Mercedes ask her husband to give her ''the medicine'' knowing that his intentions to get rid of her would make him switch the medicine for poison. They reunite in the way to heaven...
Lola, la película (2007)
I would have liked to see more of her singing and dancing and less of her bed to bed jumping! Also, why stop at 1958, when she lived up to 1995?
In those 35 years she didn't prostitute herself and the writer didn't know what to tell us?
That was not important to me, I wanted more of the behind the scenes and dancing, not the lovers who were only using her...
I am sure she had lots of more stuff happening in her life between 1958 and 1995, besides, this movie seems not to be supported by any of the Flores family, what make me think they didn't approve it.
The Neighbors (2012)
I love it, I love it, I love it - Helen Madden
Maybe I am weird, but I love this show from the start. I loved 3rd. Rock from the sun and since there's never enough comedies involving aliens, I was eager to see this one from the first time I heard about it. I loved the pilot and I have been enjoying it ever since, each time I like it lore and more. Last night, I was pleasantly surprised with the Thanksgiving episode, where they came up with the brilliant idea of giving Jackie two sisters (and one of them is Leslie Jordan), that was not the only hilarious thing, but the explanation they have for that!
I like the idea of both families being soooo different and having to adapt to one another. Is funny. The show is very well written, clever and smart, something not everything on TV right now is. I love it, and I also like the kid with the red hair (his unusual looks are part of the plot) and the rebellious Weaver girl (her unusual looks are also part of the plan). Everything is perfectly planned to make up a very good series. Is is truly like nothing else on TV right now and that's why people feel so uncomfortable with it. They're not used to good shows anymore...
Amor en custodia (2005)
Azteca vs. Televisa
When you say Mexico, I think you should specify ''Azteca'' or ''Televisa'', because even when all telenovelas are from Mexico, people should now who made what. And I am referring to AMOR EN CUSTODIA, produced by Azteca with very high standards. It was a remake, but a very good one. Now Televisa premiered yesterday night (Univisión) yet another remake, AMORES VERDADEROS. The reason why I would like to make clear about the difference between the two TV stations, is because Televisa claims they are the best in the market, and I don't think that is true, they could have been, but since Azteca started producing, they also have a lot of them that are very good, not only speaking about quality, but original stories. I have to do some research, and see how many telenovelas from Azteca are remakes, because I did that with Televisa and more than 80% is recycled. From the latest 25 titles, only 4 were ''originals''. I watched AMORES VERDADEROS last night and I felt it was hollow. They show helicopters, luxury and beautiful states out of the city, but that's not all. Buenfil and Yáñez look tired and there's no chemistry between them. I hope Ruli and Eiza González really click!
Amor en custodia (2009)
Your wish came true!
Well... Your wish came true because we now have a fourth version, also from Mexico, but from the ''other company'' the rival to Azteca, who produced the first remake with Margarita Gralia and Sergio Basáñez.
This time is turn to Erika Buenfil and Eduardo Yáñez, and although the sets are impressive (debuted yesterday night), I don't feel much for it. I guess this is going to be ''the parody'', because we have some stuff just not worth watching it. The age difference is not much here, since Buenfil and Yáñez are about the same age, 50+ yo, and have a very tired look in their faces. The fight scenes look fake and the only thing beautiful in there will be Marjorie de Souza. 80% of Televisa novelas are remakes. Started with their own, then they took originals from South America and now even the ones from the rival TV station! I see desperation!
I think I saw another movie!
After watching the movie and reading this reviews, I doubt we saw the same movie. For starters, I have watched a lot of those ''torture movies'' from the seventies and they were more convincing than this one, far more realistic, and they were made more than 40 years ago.
Here, the locations and sets look too clean and bright to be the 1700s, the women, who spent most of the movie naked and being tortured for way too long periods of time (unnecessary if you ask me) had their pubes trimmed, and that's another thing that didn't happened in those times, I don't want to say that were also thin and had nice bodies, but back in that time, I doubt most women looked that good! Then the nanny, with makeup and false eyelashes! Really? Is that so, considering that time where the movie is set? One of the girls is a widow, and she speaks with some kind of accent. Both speak so low and one of them doesn't even move her lips, like she's doing some ventriloquist act. I doubt they're actresses, but girls who accepted to be naked for most of the film, and to show everything, there's no need of histrionic skills, right? Then we have the people who are being interviewed by the church. Nobody spoke correctly, seem to me they didn't spend a dime in professionals, and while they were telling their version of the story, we had to endure the same flashback over and over for more than ten times. The widow was coming down the street, some other women verbally attacked her, then Lady Francisca came to her rescue and they both were caught by the church guards, over and over... I don't know why people keep making movies without knowing how to make them. The movie shouldn't consist in two naked women being tortured for almost one hour plus some other unimportant stuff to fill time up. This movie is bad. The acting is bad, the setting and lighting is bad, overall a bad movie that exploits the theme of the inquisition just to show two naked women being tortured. For me, the only thing decent is the story, true or not, of the Church greedy for money and using everything in their power to have it no mater what. In the end, the Priest gets what he deserved. If you watch this movie, don't expect too much, is empty! It doesn't make you feel anything for anybody!
Mockingbird Lane (2012)
Some things should never be touched.
I don't watch a lot of TV lately because with the computer I get to watch exactly what I want and not whatever is on. Sometimes I remember to watch GRIMM and sometimes I miss it (but I can catch it later here, on IMDb) because I was told in the beginning that each episode was going to be about a fairy tale and somehow in the way I lost track of that and I believe they're not doing that anymore, the Halloween episode was about La Llorona, a Mexican legend, but this is another story, the thing is that I saw the spot on TV about this Halloween special and I immediately wanted to watch it, it was special, it was for Halloween and the set up looked cute. I didn't even knew who was in the cast except for O'Connell, the only one I recognized from the trailer. Comes Friday 26 and I forgot. So I looked for it the next day and I found it on Hulu. Up to that point I didn't know it was going to be related to the Munsters. The show starts, the kids in the camp look for whoever stole some candy and then the wolf shows up. Until they say: ''-Where is Eddie Munster?'' I realize this has something to do with the series from the 60s. So I start to pay attention and then I see Marilyn buying the house on Mockingbird, Herman's silhouette appearing on screen with the square head and the screws in his neck confirmed my doubts. When I saw the rats coming out from the coffin transforming themselves into Grandpa and then Lily being dresses by spiders I started to feel uneasy. Smoke, Lily on the ceiling, Grandpa with long gowns and lace umbrella, the kids running and the blood, the pterodactyl bat eating the lion who ate the deer (in what forest?), all that don't seem too appropriate to have anything to do with the original series. For me, if they want to do a Halloween special, good, make it, use other names and/or another idea, but don't mess with the classics. I haven't seen Dexter, or any of those new vampire shows, but if they want to keep exploiting the monster trend, fine, just don't use something that shouldn't be disturbed. There's evidence in the past proving that is not a good idea (Munsters today the series and all those movies from the 90s).
I agree with everything the previous poster said. The movie is brilliant, hilarious, emotive, fantastic and everything most movies I have seen from EUA are not. I love comedy and I always hope to be amused and laugh, but I don't know if it's me who has a weird sense of humor or is the movies I watch. Most of the American movies I have seen lately, THAT'S MY BOY, BRIDESMAIDS, etc. are cute but not funny, not hilarious, not sad, nothing, just empty. I like THE NEIGHBORS, which I have seen nobody else likes, I like SLAMMING SALMON, where I was laughing so hard my stomach hurt, and so on. So Simon Pegg here is great! The story is great, I laughed and cried, what for me makes a movie perfect! This is a great movie for my sense of humor!
