A Guy Named Joe
Pete Sandidge (Tracy), a daredevil bomber pilot, dies when he crashes his plane into a German aircraft carrier, leaving his devoted girlfriend, Dorinda (Irene Dunne), who is also a pilot, heartbroken. In heaven, Pete receives a new assignment: he is to become the guardian angel for Ted Randall (Van Johnson), a young Army flyer. Invisibly, Pete guides Ted through flight school and into combat, but the ectoplasmic mentor's tolerance is tested when Ted falls for Dorinda. Ultimately, however, Pete not only comes to terms with their relationship but also acts as Dorinda's copilot when she undertakes a dangerous bombing raid, so that Ted won't have to.

And also I see this movie to compensate the loss of a "second season" which is sad because the characters had potential to grow that it needed more than a season to do that.Anyway, the movie continued where the anime left off. The plot is very different from the anime as they already finished with the arc story previously. I see that this movie is still on part canon to the anime but I sometimes feel like this movie isn't quite important at all, just a fun addition for the fans of the anime, including myself.What the movie lacked was a main strong antagonist. Obviously they couldn't use Satan as the antagonist again for the movie but there wasn't any strong antagonist that makes this movie suspenseful.Thanks to the movie, we finally see more of the True Cross Academy setting (most likely from the increased budget), which I was excited about and it's like a combination of China Town, Times Square and the Tokyo streets. I am glad we get to see more parts of the setting. And let me just say the art was more beautiful than the anime thanks to its increased budget.As for character development, I was sad that it didn't focus on the other characters except Rin and Yukio. But that is okay because they're the protagonists in the anime so they movie should be focused on them. I really like Usamaro so much that I cried over the character. He (or she? I can't tell) is very heroic and brave while also being cute and quirky and that is what I like about him (or her?).As for the plot, it wasn't brilliant but it's good enough for the fans like me to be satisfied that the anime is quite big enough to be brought to the big screen.This movie opened up for any potential sequels so if they're going to have a sequel, oh my god, I will be excited as fuck.If you're a fan of the anime, you should go see this movie even though it's a different story. The art, the satisfying plot and likable characters will make this movie an enjoyable experience.

Yhe way it's shot, and flips back and forth between "present" and the 1920s is pretty seamless, And the fact that it features writers and poets from the Harlem Renaissance, and makes paralells between their struggles and those of Anthony Mackie makes for a very interesting film. People like Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston -- these people whose works I studies in grammar school and college, so it was fun to see them on screen. Anthony Mackie (who you might remember from We Are Marshall, for example) does a great job. Definitely worth a ren for those interested.

(nl) wrote: I have to wonder--how is it that a little schmutz on Catherine Deneuve's face is enough to render her ugly in these people's eyes? She's lovely; she will always be lovely. She still has those lovely, delicate features, those eyes, that hair. I can see that she probably wouldn't smell very good, given that she was wearing an untanned donkey skin (a badly faked untanned donkey skin) wrapped around her, but to call her ugly is, frankly, to be [i]blind[/i]. They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and that's pretty much true, but seriously? There's a certain amount of beauty that practically everyone must acknowledge, and Catherine Deneuve has it. Once upon a time, there was a handsome king (Jean Marais) and his beautiful queen (either not shown--I don't remember--or uncredited). They loved each other very much, and their daughter (Deneuve) was so lovely and accomplished that they did not worry that she was their only child. And then the queen died of some strange wasting illness, leaving behind her a promise that the king would only marry a woman as beautiful as she. The king despaired at finding such a woman, but then his eyes turned upon his daughter. She conspired with her godmother, the Lilac Fairy (Delphine Seyrig), to escape from her father's evil plan. She was disguised as a scullion, wrapped in a stinking donkey skin. She was the princess of the blue kingdom; she escaped to the red kingdom. There, the prince fell in love with her. I read this story many years ago in its variant "Thousand-Furs." It, too, was the bowdlerized version--oh, it mentioned the king's incestuous desire, and it included the three lovely dresses, though in that version, instead of the donkey skin, her father also gave her a coat made of pieces of the fur of a thousand animals, and it was that which she hid in. The point is, however, that both versions left out the rape that was in the original version, the thing that really sparked the princess to run away. All the old tales, you see, are about blood, and if you want an unbowdlerized version, try Robin McKinley's [i]Deerskin[/i]. However, most books that include some version of the story are sanitized for children, and in this rare case, I'm kind of okay with that. This version, and "Thousand-Furs," which I read as a child, are indeed [i]for[/i] children; [i]Deerskin[/i] is not. This is a weird damn production, though, bowdlerized or not. All of the servants of the blue kingdom are actually painted blue. Many of the servants, and even the horses, of the red kingdom are actually painted red. The lilac fairy eventually arrives in a helicopter; fairies, apparently, have access to future technology. It's a wonder that she merely wears lilac and isn't painted it. Then again, the nobles aren't painted, and even the higher servants don't seem to be. (Except heralds, who are indeed painted.) I think, as well, that the sets are recycled; the blue king and queen have this elaborate double throne with a rainbow and such over it, and the red king's throne is, I think, intended to be a stuffed white lion, but it looks like a giant toy cat. At one point, the red king is wearing what I think are daisies in his beard. You'll note I am only barely recommending this. I thought very seriously about not, but I think it's just marginally worth seeing. The songs aren't bad--I think Sting uses one on one of his albums, but I can't now place it. Certainly the melodies are similar. The sets are . . . okay, weird, but lovely. The acting isn't very good, but it's got Catherine Deneuve, so you can just sit and watch her if you get bored.
(ag) wrote: A classic cheesy love story, totally full of itself, but a film I watch over and over. Ali MacGraw is unforgettable as an independant feisty woman in the 70's. Also this is the film that gave Tommy Lee Jones his start in the movies.
(kr) wrote: Gone With the Wind is far from the perfect movie, but the impact that it left on the blockbuster film should not go unnoticed. The sheer grandeur of this four-hour Civil War soap opera is like nothing we saw before and have rarely seen thereafter. Its story is just intriguing enough to warrant the long runtime, and Clark Gable brings to life one of the most iconic cinematic roles in Rhett Butler.
