Economics 101 indeed
Another IMDb commenter asks, "Why would anyone risk life and limb in a gold bullion heist when he's got a blueprint for suspended animation that's easily worth millions?", an excellent question. Here's MY question: They steal a million dollars worth of gold and expect to wake up in 2061 and live like kings. LOL!! There are four crooks, that's $250,000 each. If they woke up TODAY, in 2007 (over a half-century early), and they rented a small NYC apartment, paid for food, a car, car insurance, electric, gas, water, phone and health insurance, and generally lived like paupers BEYOND those expenses -- they'd be dead-broke and living in the streets in just a couple years. If they tried to "live like kings," that money wouldn't last a WEEK. Yes, the price of gold would have gone up in the meantime, too, but not enough for them to "live like kings" the rest of their lives, now that inflation has gotten us to the point where a single night out on the town for a big spender runs into the tens of thousands of dollars. (Or hundreds of thousands, if you're a Middle Eastern oil bigwig or someone like that.)
Terror in the Tropics (2006)
I couldn't watch more than 10 minutes
What a waste of time. I got about five minutes into it and became *very* antsy, and was soon fast-forwarding a bit, and pretty soon the desire to take my thumb OFF the fast-forward button was nonexistent. Actors Mark Redfield and Barry Murphy did very capable jobs, I thought, but no one else I saw gave anything like a good performance. Again, take this review with a large grain of salt because the movie was just so unbearable I couldn't make it to the end. Heck, I couldn't make it to the MIDDLE !!
I find myself unable to submit this review because it isn't long enough. Maybe this last sentence will put it over the top.
The Unknown (2005)
The movie ain't chillin' but you guys are shillin'
This is just inane, boring, low-budget Bigfoot film #55, not scary once, and half as funny.
In fact, not until I read all the comments above from cast-crew members pretending to be Joe Public -- or maybe just ONE cast or crew member pretending to be Joe Public -- not until then did I realize that any of it was SUPPOSED to be funny.
90 minutes down the drain.
IMDb is telling me that the minimum length for comments is ten lines of text. I can't think of ten lines worth of things to say about this nothing movie. But I'm vamping in hopes of getting this up to ten.
How 'bout those Mets?
Spawn of the North (1938)
The parts are better than the whole.
Some surprisingly violent action scenes are the highlights of this Alaska-set adventure tale of boats and salmon fishermen, which plays like a disguised Western. Unfortunately, they're lost in a sea of footage (almost two hours), and the savvy viewer can see the ending coming from halfway to Skag
Other Men's Women (1931)
Approach with modest expectations
The plot is pure hokum, so it's the extras that "make" the movie: The backdrop of trains and trainyards, Joan Blondell in an extraneous role as a saucy waitress, James Cagney in an early supporting part (he has a nice bit on top of a moving train, and also does some dancing), J. Farrell MacDonald helping plant peas by making holes in the dirt with his peg leg, cool bridge and train miniatures, etc. Approach with modest expectations
