(kr) wrote: I was expecting more Lorax! Have it's moment of cuteness but mainly tells the mistake of a greedy, materialistic human being and how he is looking for redemption. Not very comical or memorable.
(gb) wrote: Although the attractive characters and scenic setting make this movie visually appealing, the strange, melodramatic plot, weak writing and bad acting ruin a movie that had great potential. They beat the coin metaphor (which could've been meaningfully if used sparingly) to death and the ending makes light of the fact that Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfield can only be together because the man she married out of pity died of cancer. When they fall in love at the end, it almost seems like they're celebrating the fact that her husband is dead and her "burden" is gone.
(ru) wrote: Del mismo directo de "El Ultimo Beso" llega este fuerte drama italiano que abarca los conflictos de todo un funcionamiento familiar y como afecta a cada uno de sus integrantes. Describe que pasa cuando en una pareja se pierde el deseo de estar juntos, sus hijos ya son adolescentes, se odian y a veces se quieren. Habla de amores y desamores; encuentros y desencuentros; deseos y abulias; padres e hijos; rutinas y diversiones. Una paradoja como la vida misma.

Behold, Starcrash ('n Burn) with it's thrilling adventure inspired by the very film you crave more of, and cutting edge gee whiz special effects that will have you believing those remnants of model kits, paper clips, Lego blocks, and screws glued together are real spaceships. Since it's the 70s, starscapes are convincingly rendered in appealing multicoloured disco lights, which actually make you want to do things to the scantily clad heroine (Caroline Munro, scantily clad, and that's alright). Along for the ride, a weird Mork/Spock/Luke hybrid light saber wielding character (yes, it's possible!), a Han Solo-like with a puffy, I mean PUFFY, perm (the legendary Hasselhoff), and a robot that looks like Darth Vader, but we know is good, because he speaks with a folksy southern accent, and even exclaims yeehaa when the action gets too good, which usually involves sparklers going off, ahem, spaceships blowing up. An international cast of Italian and American actors phonetically harmonize thanks to the border demolishing dub, which is hard to pick is even there because the lips rarely fall out of synch... much of the time. And no need for "making of" featurettes, jump in behind the scenes any time by spotting camera crews on reflective surfaces as they appear. Finally, Academy Award winner John Barry provides a score so rousing, it's main titles get unceremoniously cut half way through because, well, the director thought everyone would be too thrilled to notice. How right he was! Popcorn choking fun. Warning: children under 3 may actually think this is a Star Wars sequel.

Nelson leading a platoon of soldiers to Burma to perform two tasks, one) is to locate the Japanese radar station communication centre and then, two) it is to destroy it, since air plane bombers can't bomb approximate locations in a forest and that it needs to be confirmed. Tagging along with them is a seldom old news reporter Mark Williams (Henry Hull) wanting to be a witness to the whole ordeal. And actual war footage has been used to solidify it's authenticity was a nice touch, but still could've been better. To complete it's objective was a cinch since not a single casualty happened despite commanding many soldiers, for the impossible only came when they're supposed to reach for the empty spot where they were supposed to be picked up from the very same planes that brought them there. That it became the problem since the Japanese soldiers were also onto them. What didn't make much sense is the fact that, although the radar system was already destroyed, why can't the American air force send bomber planes on the Japanese soldiers that were pursuing American soldiers before, instead of making them walk several grueling miles for reinforcements. Why can't additional paratroopers dropped off earlier, now that the Japanese radar system had already been destroyed? I'm still baffled by this question ever since I watched it what could've been an insightful war movie, but instead drag it's viewers to a very long journey instead that's similar to something like "The Dawn Patrol" and 1943 "Sahara" starring Humphrey Bogart. 2 out of 4 stars

(nl) wrote: Has some of the same mysterious qualities of "The Mist" but done with less preaching and a bit more humor. Starting with the plump underachieving "hero" to his military dad and the silly ending this is a fun movie to watch. It also helps not having any annoying characters to distract from the creatures.
