A New Leaf
Henry Graham is a man with a problem: he has run through his entire inheritance, and is completely unequipped to provide for himself. His childhood guardian, Uncle Harry (a deliciously mean-spirited James Coco), refuses to give him a dime, and Henry, completely unwilling to exercise the only solution he sees--suicide-- devises a plan with the help of his imaginative butler: he can make money the old-fashioned way--he can marry it. With a temporary loan from Uncle Harry to tide him over, Henry has six weeks to find a bride, marry her, and repay the money, or else he must forfeit all his property to his uncle. With only days remaining, Henry meets clumsy, painfully shy heiress Henrietta Lowell (played by director Elaine May). She's the answer to his prayers--if only Henry can overcome the obstacles placed in his path by Uncle Harry, Henrietta's lawyer, and Henry's own reluctance to wed.

Sounded halfway interesting, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Overall, a decent movie, and Mos does a really great job. Brendan Fraser is notable as well, but the movie itself doesn't bring a whole lot new to the table. The "drug deal gone bad" scenario has been done before, and it was pretty predictable ... but I wouldn't call it a waste of time. Maybe a tad depressing, but worth watching.

With the theory "it takes one to find one" Proctor gets teamed up with detective Raymond Campanella to find the heiress and rescue her. Its one mishap after the other as they set off to find her. Like all Martin Short movies get ready to augh and laugh hard. If there's one person who can pull off a movie like this its Martin Short. This movie is gut busting laughter from beginning to end. This is defiantly one of the greatest comedies to ever live. When you have a comedy with Martin Short you can't lose. And you ain't going to lose when you watch Pure Luck.

(au) wrote: Ken Russell's "Mahler" is a trip. The visual imagery of a woman emerging from a cocoon and and extensive battle where the conversion of a Jew to Christianity forces him to destroy a Star of David and eat the head of a pig are amongst the things to look forward to; and yet, Russell manages to make some big statements about Gustav Mahler's life through this bizarre interpretation of his life. My favorite part of the film comes about 5 minutes in, when Gustav watches a scene from "Death in Venice" unfold before his eyes with the beautiful "Adagietto" playing. This image of a composer watching the future legacy of his music is fantastic, particularly as his music was not well received in his time and he always believed that people would "get it" 50 years after his death. And they did. The film's downfall is that you have to be an expert on Mahler's life to understand most of what Russell is trying to express, giving it a very limited audience appeal. I am fairly well educated in the life and character of Mahler and yet, many of these things went over my head the first time. The acting is good and the soundtrack is incredible as we get to enjoy Mahler's music for two hours, but unless you have done significant research about the life of Mahler ahead of time, this will just come off as and extensive display of bizarre imagery.
(de) wrote: Very thin Butch and Sundance type movie. Never buy the friendship between Eastwood and Bridges. Very low key robbery scene, not that interesting. Eastwood and Bridges come close to being interesting with their natural charisma, but the script isn't doing much to help them out.

(us) wrote: Wednesday, March 12, 2014 (1956) Patterns DRAMA An 'In your face' explicit movie about how corporate America works in real life, which may also be a reflection how the writer of this movie, by the name of Rod Serling of the "Twilight Zone" fame experienced from his own top executives. It's one of the examples about how employees can be dicked around. This movie requires 'no' irony as Serling is best known for, but rather a movie that is ahead of it's time, that is happening as of right now as we speak. It's an example about how corporate greediness can sometime overshadow human principle. And everybody has either seen or know someone like this, where if a fellow employee who has just started, and he is making twice the amount of money than the veteran worker does, who's been there for a really long time and still couldn't make anymore than what s/he is getting- that sort of thing. It stars Van Hefflin as Fred Staples, who has just started to work for a wealthy corporation on his very first day, with all of it's employees there to greet him and so forth- including the second man on top, William Briggs played by acting legend Ed Begley as William Briggs. And immediately, William begins to like Fred as they begin to work together on a project. And it was at this point, would be the perfect example of 'don't give any credit, where credit is due', when Fred's boss, Walter Ramsey (Everett Sloane), wanted only Fred to take full credit on this particular project, even though William also helped him on it. Then the film turned to 'the main boss doing whatever it takes to drive the old fella out'. And the funny thing is, that it's like that in real life too, since they're many people who take great pride into stealing other peoples work or ideas before calling it as their own, such as J.K. Rowling of the "Harry Potter" fame, and Disney stealing plots, ideas, and characters to make the financially successful "The Lion King". Which anyone who's open minded can see for themselves that "the Lion King" is just the shorter equivalent version of a long running syndicated show in Japan called "Kimba, the White Lion", with the only difference is that not many North Americans had ever seen nor had heard of it. And at the same time, Disney executives turning it around, claiming that "The Lion King" came from MacBeth. They go, 'can't you see the similarities'. Or when long time faithful employees are laid off or fired just one day before retirement. And yes, the ending of "Patterns" is also a revelation of what happens to people in general as well, as Fred stands tall claiming to be paid a bigger salary than the others. otherwise he'll walk. 3 out of 4 stars
