A Chorus Line (1985)
6/10
The "Classic movie" (I Just Love It!)
20 January 2002
Well, "A Chorus Line" is the classic movie. When I've see this film for the first time, I've feel in love with this. I spend a little bit of words for speak about "A Chorus Line" because this movie can tell to you everything. For the technical part, the movie is very good: the actors are great and they play the character very very well. The photography it's classic for the '80. Final vote: 8 1/2 (The best musical I've see in my life!)

Good or bad?!?...This is the question!
15 January 2002
"Demolition Man" it's a movie like "Dredd" with the same Stallone (the same good&bad character, but in this film he have a little bit of humors) and Snipes, a very "bad boy" and "bad actor". The other actors plays (includes Sandra Bullock) character who seem a group of toys, under the commando of an other toy. It's a good/bad movie. Good for what it want represent (the globalization), and bad for other thing (the actors, the director, the writer, the special effect -the final explosion it's make with other explosion puttinges entirety-).

Final vote: 6 out 10 Final comment: For Stallone it's impossible make a film like the great "Rocky", in which he play very well him role. "Sly, wait a good script and don't make this movies!"

Volcano (1997)
6/10
Volcano...at times it's a beautiful movie!
9 November 2001
It's a good movie (at times it's a beautiful film!), but "Volcano" have this problem: 1. For as it's direct, it could be exchanged for a film destined to the television audience. 2. The special effect at times is very stupid (look 1). 3. The female actress (Anne Heche) interprets it's role bad, and she is the worse actor than all the cast. 4. The rest of the actors seem to recite for a television film (look 1), included Tommy Lee Jones.

FINAL VOTE: 6 (Good...for the television audience).

Another travel with Aldo, Giovanni & Giacomo
22 October 2001
Well, this movie is good and bad. Is good because Aldo, Giovanni & Giacomo are really "magic", and they confirm of being able behind the cinema camera. But this film is bad because they use the same plot of the last two movies: three man, a woman, the love, a travel. Now A., G. & G. are the best italian comedians on the big screen, but if they continue to use the same idea, with some modification, they risk truly a lot, they risk the place of "kings of the Christmas italian comedy", stolen to Massimo Boldi and Christian De Sica.

FINAL VOTE: 6 (For the "magic")

Big (1988)
6/10
A great comedy, I just love this movie!
27 September 2001
"Big", for me, it's one of the greatest comedies of the '80. Tom Hanks and all the cast are very good in this movie for all the family. If you want back in the '80, see this movie with "Ghostbusters" and "Working Girl".

Merdaccia!!!
10 August 2001
"Fantozzi" are the first of a long series of movie (going more and more ahead it has been arrived to a repetitive comedy). The story speak about the accountant Ugo Fantozzi, a man much ill-fated, and of it's daily adventures, in the office and in the house. All it is drawn from the book "Fantozzi", published in the 1971 by Rizzoli. And it is just this last one that distributes this movie. An enriched film thanks to Villaggio and the rest of the cast (between which Liu Bosisio, Anna Mazzamauro and Gigi Reder). But also thanks to a good script, written without stupidity. It's a full film of catastrophic adventures, in which Fantozzi goes always fall to us, to times without it's will. With this comment I have commented also the other "Fantozzi" films.

A bad copy of "Police Academy"
9 August 2001
It's a bad copy of the great "Police Academy" series. Two guys (included Don Most of "Happy Days"), go to a Stewardess School for fly and for know girls. Like "P.A.", the team comes transferred in one small society in ruin. They will be just save the company from the closing.

Comparison with "Police Academy": The story is the same. Only in that case draft of policemen who must save from the ruin their school.

I council this film for who has seen the series of "Police Academy".

In this movie Rocky (Stallone) is a patriot, and it goes in Russia for destroy the communist machine called Ivan Drago, after that this has killed it's best friend, Apollo Creed.

A movie dedicated to Simon Le Bon...but it is to acquaintance of this film?
2 August 2001
A classic teen-romantic movie like "La Boum" (1980). A young girl dream all one young girl dreams all the day it's wedding with Simon Le Bon, the singer of the band Duran Duran. And it will make all why the dream comes true.

I have said before: it's a classic romantic movie, nothing of particular. This film is useful to back in the '80, and to celebrate the fashion of the Duran Duran.

FINAL VOTE: 5/6

"...in che senso?!"
29 July 2001
Three man (playing by Carlo Verdone) and three different story: Leo is a shy guy, and it's world is only the job, the mother and Ladispoli. But he meet Marisol (Verónica Miriel), and it's way to see the world will begin to change. Enzo is the contrary of Leo. It's a boy much outlandish, tries to attract people with it's outlandish stories. While he is travel for a vacation, a friend of this will be felt badly in it's car. But for Enzo it is all a fact of nervousness. Ruggiero is a boy who lives in a community, and when he come to Rome, it finds again the father. He invites Ruggiero to pass a day between the old ones walls of house. And he meet old faces known in the past. All will find it changed.

A great comedy, with many phrases rendered celebrates from the big actor Verdone. I council this film to who wants to know the comic Carlo Verdone.

And the head of this sends for encounter this one of the more lazy-bones of the society (Lino Banfi). But when this understand that is a woman...!

Vote for the actor/actress: 6 (Placido and the rest of the cast are very good) Vote for director: 5 (classic) Vote for writer: 5 (classic) Final Vote: 6 (Very good)

VENERDI (third episode): A famous and rich creator of sexy ballets (Adriano Celentano), have various problem with a dancer. She want to go far away the theater box and to marry a man of the Mafia. Costantine will make all for rescue the girl from the dangerous man.

Evolution (2001)
7/10
Reitman is ready for Ghostbusters III?
25 July 2001
When I see the poster of "Evolution", the first impression is: It's a parody of the classic sci-fi movie. The journalist write the same thing. But this say "Reitman copy her most famous movie: Ghostbusters". Well, I'm a fan of Ghostbusters, and when the movie exit in Italy I go to the cinema for see this new Ghostbusters. And this is the new Ghostbusters!

IVAN...YOU ARE READY FOR "GB 3"?!

In the 1976 three girl become the first "Charlie's Angels". The name of their are Jill, Sabrina and Kelly. Now a new group of Charlie's Angels are born. The name of this three woman are Dylan (Drew Barrymore), Natalie (Cameron Diaz) and Alex (Lucy Liu). They work with Bosley (THE GREAT, THE ONLY BILL MURRAY!!!) for a investigation agency, and the boss of this is Charlie. Now the Angels work for the Know Industries, and the boss of this is missed. But the girl don't know a thing: this is a trap!

About director and co.: For McG is the first movie, but the direction of "Charlie's Angels" are great! And the photography are beauty like the Angels. And the soundtrack are a mix of 70's Disco/Pop and Heavy Rock!

About the actor/actress: The Angels (Barrymore, Diaz and Liu) are good in the character of "sexy babes", and Bill Murray are great. The villains of the movie are very bad (Tim Curry is good, and Crispin Glover is very good -remember this in "Back To The Future"?-)

VOTE FOR ACTOR/ACTRESS: 6/7 (Very good, boy!) VOTE FOR DIRECTOR: 8 (McG...congratulations!) VOTE FOR WRITER: 6 (The story is classic, but McG have transform this in a very very good script) VOTE FOR DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY (Only in this movie!): 8 (Wow!) FINAL VOTE: 6/7 (When exit the sequel?)

Excuse me...this is the TV-Series?!
25 July 2001
The story is this: Mr. Freeze, a mutant man, search, for the death wife, various diamonds. The Dr. Pamela Isley, thank a mad doctor, transform her body in a mad character, Poyson Ivy. The two mutant are in Gotham City and they wont destroyed this! And Batman & Robin go to stop this mad character!

The story is stupid, the photography color as so strong and "dangerous for the eyes"!

The best thing in this movie is Clooney (the best Batman with West and Keaton!), and the stupid celebrity is Uma Thurman (a bad actress in this movie).

TIM...PLEASE, BACK IN GOTHAM AND DIRECT A NEW BATMAN'S MOVIE!!! Joel Shumacher have copy the famous '60 TV-Series, and he can't directed a Batman's movie.

The other Carlo Verdone I know is an other person!
25 July 2001
The other Carlo Verdone I know is an other person! In this movie he want copy the old comedy "Un sacco bello" and "Bianco, Rosso e Verdone", directed by him. But in this movie Verdone is very bad! It's the same story of the two other movie: three men (playing by Verdone) married three women and they make a travel. The problem of Verdone is this: he's more repetitive, the character is the same of "Un sacco bello" (1) and "Bianco, Rosso e Verdone" (2), and they have the same problem: Raniero have the problem of Furio (2), Giovannino have the problem of Leo (1) and Mimmo (2), Ivano have the same problem of Enzo (1).

Vote for the actor/actress: 6 (Claudia Gerini is perfect in this character) Vote for director: 5 (is a classic film, not particular) Vote for writer: 4 (Carlo, is the same thing of 1 and 2!!!) Final Vote: 5 (Sorry Carlo, see you!)

Great Albertone!!!
25 July 2001
Alberto Sordi as a great drama/comedy actor in this movie! It's the story about a taxi driver of Rome (Italy), and about the adventure of this in the street of the city. But in this life exist the family (the wife, the son and the father) and his problem. For Piero (Sordi) the work is a perfect place for discovery the life, for understand the world. Great is Federico Fellini with this apparition!

Thanks Alberto for this movie

VOTE FOR ACTOR/ACTRESS: 6/7 (All the actor as great!) VOTE FOR DIRECTOR: 6/7 (Not particular) VOTE FOR WRITER: 7 (the best thing of this movie!) FINAL VOTE: 7 (Thanks Alberto!)

Io e Caterina (1980)
6/10
The man and the machine...
25 July 2001
This is a not bad movie. Alberto Sordi speak about the affair of the man with the cold machine. This is affectionate to Enrico (Sordi), but when a girl come in the house of this, Caterina (the machine) have a transformation, and destroyed all the flat! And Enrico understand this: the machine have a earth! And Caterina become a "wife" for this. A not bad story, and Alberto Sordi is a good actor in this movie.

Vote for the actor/actress: 5/6 (It's the max for this film!) Vote for the director: 6/7 (in some scenes this film is a thriller!) Final vote: 6 (good!)

Great Mario...but the games?
24 July 2001
What's the problem of this movie?

Bob Hoskins is a great actor and the character of Mario Mario is perfect for him! The story is this: The King Koopa search the princess Daisy, and he find this. Daisy have a bit of a old meteorite. And when Koopa have this, the dimension of Dinohattan and the dimension of the Earth have a great problem. The Mario Brothers enter in Dinohattan for rescue Daisy and save the world from the bad King.

The problem of this movie is this: Like "Street Fighter" (with Jean-Claude Van Damme), the film don't have the story of the game. And the great error of the writer is this: Koopa is the bad guy (in the game are a turtle), and Boswer is the father of Daisy (in the game is the final boss!!!).

When a writer write a script for a movie dedicate to a great game...play this, please!!!

Vote for the actor: 6 (Hoskins is great like Hopkins) / Vote for the story: 4 (The consolle and the game of writer is missing?!)

A good story for a new talent cast...but the game?!
23 July 2001
It's a good story for a new talent cast (exclude Van Damme and Julia). The movie don't copy the games (I'm very hungry, I don't see the Ryu's "HO-RYU-KEN"!!!), and find a new way for Street Fighter's combat. And the story about the character is new (excluse Chun-Li's father story). A question to the writer...why all this??! Why Guile is the principal character??! And Ryu??! It's a background and stupid character. And the only Ken's think is the money, not the combat!

The casting is the best thing is this movie.

I recommend this to the people don't see the game!

The superstars of the supernatural are back...!
23 July 2001
5 years later "Ghostbusters" Ivan Reitman have this idea: create a sequel of the 1984's colossal! And Aykroyd and Ramis write a new script: a river of slime is down the city. All is created by Vigo, a european prince. He want back in the earth and he choose a new body, the son of Dana Barrett. And the Ghostbusters take the proton pack and back in the street for destroyed the enemy n.1...the ghosts!

A new sci-fi/comedy by the great Ivan Reitman (Twins), with the same cast of "Ghostbusters": Murray, Aykroyd, Weaver, Ramis and Moranis.

It's a good sequel, and it's my favourite movie after "Ghostbusters".

WE'RE BACK!!!

Hi...Bruce Wayne...
23 July 2001
A great action movie!!!

The first of more movie dedicate to the Bat-Man are the best. Gotham City is really really gothic and Tim Burton are very very professional! Jack Nicholson (The Joker) are perfect for this character, like Michael Keaton!

I love this movie!!!

Ghostbusters (1984)
7/10
The best...the only...GHOSTBUSTERS
15 July 2001
In the '80 Dan Aykroyd write for her and John Belushi a story about two guys call "Ghost Smasher".

1984: Belushi are died, and Ivan Reitman and Harold Ramis write a new script like "Ghost Smasher". The title is "Ghost Busters", and the story is this: three scientist create a agency called "Ghostbusters". The Columbia Pictures like the idea and released the project. In one years Bill Murray (Stripes), Dan Aykroyd (The Blues Brothers), Sigourney Weaver (Alien), Harold Ramis (Stripes) and Rick Moranis (The Second City) create a great sci-fi movie! The "Supernatural spectacural" have a big success in the world, and I think is my favourite movie (with "Ghostbusters II"). I recommend this film because have a great cast and the best comedy director.
