Abby M (jp) wrote: On The Job begins with clips of recent news going on in the Philippines. As the movie gets timely, it holds an aura of not being sensational. With the issues confronting the country the film's significance is impossible to notice. It illustrates how the politicians and criminals work hand in hand to achieve power, position and money.Director Erik Matti gave in to a political underground story this time dealing with authority, politicians and position but his signature with how the Filipino family bond has never changed. Thanks to our corrupt penal system they're regularly let out of prison to act as contract killers with the perfect alibis. Though the film was slow at first, it maneuvers to cover each and every aspect of the story. Tatang (Joel Torre), a prisoner-hitman who eventually turned insecure when his boss Thelma informed that he can't work full time due to his age portrays more than the murder. The darkness in his eyes conveyed more about his character than the conversations did. His assistant Daniel (Gerald Anderson) played a very talkative rookie following Tatang's footsteps. His character was more of a nave prisoner who has a bit of an attitude. These two characters played major role as prisoners who gets out from jail time to time killing. As inmates, they share the father and son relationship. The film was widely arranged where jail wardens also act as accomplices. The cast of SPO1 Acosta (Joey Marquez) was played brilliantly. An SPO1 with 35 years of service stayed as SPO1 since he turned out to have the cleanest conscience. Integrity was challenged when he became the aid of Francis Colonel Jr. (Piolo Pascual) who takes part by being an NBI agent who's entrapped by being an excellent cop, compromised by being a son-in-law of a politician (Michael Demesa) indirectly involved with the killings masterminded by Gen. Pacheco (Leo Martinez). The love scenes portrayed were also timely and sensible still; the story remains intact despite the diversions. Angel Aquino, Rayver Cruz and Lito Pimentel also delivered well. "On the Job" is a cynical, realistic portrait of PHL politics and crime. Be warned: the film does not end on a hopeful note. It may even make you rather sad and ashamed at how real the film feels, especially in light of the country's current events.But when people urge you to watch On the Job, do it. A film like this, an uncompromised commercial success, hasn't happened in a long time, though now that it has, our standards are irrevocably raised. - AdoboAll we need to do now is to wait for the film's international version.

Shahin K (nl) wrote: It was a really funny movie and I was actually laughing out loud. I generally don't like slap stick comedies, but this one was more intelligent than the average bollywood slapstick comedy. I did have two complaints though. Although Javed Jaffrey had some funny moments, I really think they under utilised his talent. 2ndly, I think the end was STUPID - a really dumb ending to an otherwise excellent movie.

Anisha M (de) wrote: Being inspired by 'reservoir dogs' and 'heat' but remains much much better than other bollywood action-thriller crap films. Its a very good bollywood film trying its every bit to be an international standard action film and giving same level of entertainment to indian audience but in bollywood style. Its no doubt a good movie with everything an indian stylish action movie can have. Its still entertaining to watch this movie after so many years. Its still fresh.
Ayya W (mx) wrote: It really sucks when a guy like Norrington has quit movies. I wish more films failed with this kind of insane ambition. This gets 4 stars simply for the amount of brilliant ideas and total WTF value in search of tonal consistency. Nevertheless -- endlessly watchable for me. :)

Jason O (gb) wrote: HILARIOUS! In "Houseguest," Kevin Franklin (Sinbad) stars as a houseguest that wasn't supposed to be a houseguest. Kevin is in trouble with a few people and they threaten to kill him if he doesn't give them $50,000 the next day. Kevin ends up pretending to be a long lost friend of Gary (Phil Hartman) and his family. Kevin is going to be a houseguest for awhile just so he can stay away from the madmen that he's in trouble with. But to be the family's houseguest, he has to pretend to be the REAL long lost friend of Gary, and also pretend to be what Gary's real friend is known for, for being one of the best dentists there are. I don't see why "Houseguest" isn't a lot more popular than it is, it's one of the funniest movies I've ever seen without a doubt, and I've seen a lot of great comedy movies. Sinbad provides most of the laughs with his crazy antics. I couldn't quit laughing at the part when Sinbad washes his hands with novacaine and he finds out that his hands are real numb while he's pretending to be a dentist. But that's far from being the only hilarious part of the movie. "Houseguest" is hilarious all the way from when he first becomes the houseguest at the beginning of the movie all the way to the song that talks about food in the credits after the movie. I recommend "Houseguest" to anybody who likes hilarious movies. Whether you like Sinbad or not, you should be able to enjoy this movie a lot. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2001.

James L (ru) wrote: AWESOME bio film on country singer Patsy Cline, played to perfection by Jessica Lange. Ed Harris is her abusive second husband and the love of her life, and he is also equally stellar. Both have such chemistry and truly break your heart. This film show that there was indeed pain behind the ballads of country's most missed singer and star.

Eric R (au) wrote: History is Made At Night starts off in a very similar fashion to lots of romantic comedies, but quickly transforms itself into a more dramatic film which really affected me strongly on an emotional level. I was really impressed with just how well the film balances the dramatic and comedic elements throughout the film keeping a very concise, yet rather unique tone to it all. When it's comedic, it's charming and fun (the hand puppet sequence, the comedic moments involving the chef, etc) but when we are shown the more dramatic elements involving Irene being caught in-between the man she loves and her mean-spirited husband who would rather kill her and have her leave him, it's all very resonant. In the hands of a less skilled story teller the character of Bruce Vail, her husband, could have come off as too much of an abusive husband archetype, but the film ultimately shows that Vail was a man that truly loves his wife, just never quite knowing how to deal with losing her in a sane way. The last twenty minutes or so of this film are pretty much perfect. The way that Frank Borzage uses the ship's fog horn to create an impending sense of dread is really exceptional, as it's the one constant sound in the background during the scenes leading up to the accident. The sequence towards the very end between our doomed lovers (so, I assumed while watching) is so poetic and beautiful that even when the film kinda throws a random and unnecessary 180, It didn't even bother me at all.

Justin H (fr) wrote: 95%? Really? Compared to a WWII historian I know nothing, but for your average guy I know a few things about WWII. Here's a sample of things I noticed in this atrocious film. In one scene, a German officer is packing a standard issue 1911 American weapon, while our "hero", a perennial beta male, carries a Luger, a standard issue German officer pistol for the length of the movie. Instead of flying the proper flags, they simply put Nazi flags over the grill of a jeep in order to signify that it was a Nazi vehicle. Some of the German uniforms were created almost 30 years after the setting of the movie and feature camoflauge. I could go on, but really this is just crap. The pacing is horrendous, every last scene goes on five seconds too long. save your damn Redbox fee and buy a disgusting sandwich from Mcdonalds, it will serve you better.
