The Whiffenpoofs are seen in some musical presentations but no good show of their talent is to be found here. The old cars look nice. Matt is supposed to age more than twenty years but that doesn't happen at all.
This is not an entertaining film in my opinion. Lots of people here did like it. The one very good scene I recommend watching is the parachute scene near the end. How did they do that? My guess is the stunt is what cost the $90 million.
Jack Klugman holds up his end as the driving force in this TV episode. He has some challenging scenes with medical terms that he has to rattle off like a veteran doctor.
This is one of the best prime time shows I have ever watched from a standpoint of acting and character development. The message is clear, but it is the fabulous performances that make it all worthwhile.
Most Quncy episodes do hold up well decades later. This one is even better than expected.
The parents have secrets that will be problems for themselves and their children. The boy and girl seem to fall in love during a greased pig chase. Lots of down home humor, but this is a very serious movie that builds to a climax.
Good scenes of old cars and trucks and hair styles and life styles. This movie will probably be appreciated by today's young high school viewers.
This movie is in a new DVD set of 100 Awesomely Cheesy Movies for about $15 today in December of 2016. It probably will be available in the future. This is a very good movie that probably should be in a better video set.
The monster is well done with CGI or whatever. Some great old rock and roll fifties hit songs and lots of very nice vintage cars. The steam locomotive looks legit but I do not know.
In one scene there is a map of where the monster might be. It has a golf club called The Legends marked on the map. If you search that it is in Indiana.
The story is very lame but it remains fun until the end when a last laugh awaits the audience.
Looks like the budget was under one million so they did a good job giving us a potential cult flick for pennies. It usually costs much more to make something like this.
It has a jeep but it needs an airplane and maybe a military officer and a cat.
Some people were young and others were past their prime. This movie has a feel of what it is like to be part of such a community. Some people would go to other people's rooms and enjoy what might happen and other people were loners.
This movie starts at the end but still surprises the viewer at the movie's final scenes. This movie is not perfect but it probably is the favorite at The Million Dollar Hotel.
Bud Cort is a surprise and Jimmy Smits and this is also an unusual movie for Mel Gibson. Great cast with Jeremy Davies doing what could be an award winning performance as Tom Tom.
If you like Los Angeles architecture and the darkness of Skid Row, this is a great movie. If you want a Star Wars fantasy this doesn't work. I will watch it again sometime.
Overacting causes the ground to shake and it is picked up by some sensors. Women can't run. Los Angeles is shaking from a quake on the San Andreas, so the people are told to flee to the east. All lanes of the 10 freeway now go east. The writer probably did not know the San Andreas fault is east of Los Angeles. Still a fun movie.
Everybody has a gun. New skyscrapers fall before the 100 year old hotel. It's OK to steal a car. Los Angeles drivers all leave their cars parked on roadsides with the windows rolled down and no Club on the steering wheel. There are some wires under the dash that hang down so you just rub them together to start the car.
Whatever you do during an earthquake do not check on the baby hippo.Argue with the National Guard. Grab their gun.
This is very good for Bad Movie Night. A 12.7 magnitude quake would wipe out all life on Earth except for a couple of hippos and a giraffe and some car thieves.
The movie actually had a good basic plot with some OK characters.
Andy Griffith made a movie with a similar plot long ago and it was better.
For a good desert movie I would recommend Lawrence of Arabia. For a movie with a good ending I recommend Some Like it Hot or Casablanca. For a more believable movie experience I recommend Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.
The scene was done at the Bates Motel mansion site on a hill in the middle of the big Universal lot.The director was a young 25 year old Timothy Hutton who was much better known as an actor. He looked a lot like a young Tony Perkins. It was somewhat eerie being on the Psycho set with a Norman Bates moving around behind the camera.
This series just did not find an audience for some reason, but it will stand the test of time.
I didn't see anyone at the windows of the mansion, but I knew someone was watching. Highly recommended.
Donald Sutherland is brilliant as a Russian Colonel who sidesteps and outwits some of his superiors in order to give his team a chance to succeed. The direction is straight forward. No special effects. Some make up and a bit of gore but just enough to make it real.
I wonder how many times in history these kinds of political characters have let murders take place rather than admit to their own incompetence. Also the blaming of a particular sexual orientation for something unrelated.
Highly recommended. I watched it at Amazon Prime but it might be at NetFlix or elsewhere. There might be a DVD.
The humor is slightly below low brow. Tasteless but not too disgusting. It would be a movie to have on a double bill with The Janitor. One of the finer films with a prostitute on crutches.
I think the actors and director and production company should do well with this. It should get good reviews. I watched it at Amazon Prime. It is probably at other streaming sites.
