(es) wrote: Comic books have long been a most under-appreciated medium, long thought of as mere children's entertainment when the truth is they've been subversive since the first time Superman took flight, on through the perverse fun of the EC Comics' Tales From The Crypt. Director Ron Mann's Comic Book Confidential seeks to encapsulate the magic of comic books through the words and images of their creators. It's a treasure trove of comic history, told by those who made it.In 1954, a Senate subcommittee termed comic books 'an important contributing factor in juvenile delinquency', but Mann and his subjects see them as an art form. His extraordinary doc includes archival footage, animation and of course interviews with twenty-two writers and artists who made the industry what it is today.The film opens with Jack Kirby's patriotic World War II-era icon Captain America. Kirby says 'What I was doing was putting my dreams down on paper.' EC Comics founder William M. Gaines of course had different sorts of dreams, which forced him to work around government censorship.The film abounds with terrific interviews with comic book icons like Will Eisner, Stan Lee, Harvey Pekar, Robert Crumb and more, with footage of their iconic works animated and set to rousing scores referential of their particular times. The best is Gaines, telling the story of his father folding up the Sunday funnies and selling them for a dime, essentially creating comic books as we know them. As great as the anecdotes are, what's even more stark is what isn't discussed, namely the great Brit writers of the 80's like Grant Morrison, Neil Gaiman and Alan Moore who forever changed comic book storytelling (Watchmen isn't mentioned at all). Also, the film was released in 1989, just before the comic bubble of the 90's nearly sunk the industry, but it still serves as a fine starting point for comic aficionados. Get crackin'.

(de) wrote: A strange relic of the 60's which for all accounts should stay there. The concept of having all the classic universal movie monsters plus a few extras all rocking out in Frankenstein's castle starts to wear thin only after the first 5 minutes; leaving us with a handful of terribly un-catchy music numbers and poorly written gags. I'd only recommend this to someone who wants to play something on TV left on mute during a Halloween Party or if you're curious to hear what Phyllis Diller's voice sounded like before she destroyed her vocal cords with a trillion cigarettes.

(kr) wrote: A hard-boiled and riveting police thriller. It`s Dark Blue meets L.A Confidential. It packs more impact than from the barrel of a shotgun. A stylish, intense, multi-layered and character driven film that`s down, deep and fantastic. It`s heart-pounding and wickedly entertaining from start to finish. A solid story that`s packed with action, nail-biting suspense and also scores with a tremendous cast of stars who all deliver great performances, especially Stephen Dorff. Dorff is absolutely sensational, he gives his best performance in years, he shows a great amount of emotion, toughness and raw power. David Boreanaz is terrific. James Woods is excellent. Dominic Purcell is thrilling. Walton Goggins is wonderful. A tough, pistol-packing and engaging, edge of your seat action-packed thriller.
