The bad guys (four men and one woman, all young and good looking) have a lot of fun, and carry a lot of poise. As rank amateurs they are lucky and, between racing around in their car, show a lot of cool style. It's 1968 in Japan, and it feels like maybe 1964 in the U.S., with people still wearing suits and looking good doing it. Eventually, they get in over their heads, but we don't really worry at first. They often say vague things like, "We'll go ahead with out plan," but they never say what they are planning. And then the plan happens, and it's fast and jazzy, in a kind of extended television way. The plot is kind of interesting, digging into the underworld of Japan in this sideways fashion. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Steve G (us) wrote: "Total Recall" is an amazing and fun Action/Sci-Fi movie of 1990. "Total Recall" has an amazing plot to it which is a an named "Doug Quaid" portrayed by "Arnold Schwarzenegger", who visits a virtual reality travelling agency. After an error in the process "Quaid's" brain is messed up. Later he gets a message from someone telling him that he must go to mars. The plot to this movie is amazing, the people who "Quaid" meets. The acting in "Total Recall" is superb, yet again "Arnold Schwarzenegger" exceeds our expectations for our acting. "Sharon Stone" is another great actress. The music in this movie is great, "Jerry Goldsmith" did a great job composing music for this movie. The movie editors put his music in the right scenes and made this movie ever better. "Total Recall" could've easily become a mess of a movie with plot holes everywhere, but thanks to "Paul Verhoeven's" marvellous directing an easy error never happened. There is a lot of violence and blood in "Total Recall" and with big action movies like this one it is very easy to have action sequences and death scenes look horrible. This movie had amazing visuals and very believable scenes. Finally this movie was filmed very well, there are one or two scenes that could've been done better, but only one or two. "Total Recall" will remain a classic for years to come. If you are a person who likes Action/Sci-fi's then I highly recommend you watch "Total Recall" as it is an action-packed amazing film with superb acting. I give "Total Recall" a 9/10.

John Waters considers this the best Christmas movie, and though I haven't seen Santa Clause 3 the Escape Clause, I can say that this is the best Christmas movie I've seen. If you aren't a Christmas cynic or if you hate Bad Santa then watch A Christmas Story instead.
Nathaniel R (ca) wrote: In a film that has all the makings of the standard coming-of-age drama, Ordinary People tackles sensitive subject matter with poise and a rewarding sentiment.Mainly following the life of Conrad Jarrett (a powerTimothy Hutton), we watch a a regular, suburban family adjust to normal life after the death of one of their children. We are introduced to a seemingly normal, functioning family with Conrad at its focal point, from the audience's view at least. He engages in normal teenage activities: he rides to school in the backseat of his rowdy friends car, attends swim practice, and goes home to eat dinner with his pristine mother (Mary Tyler Moore) and his soft-spoken father (Donald Sutherland). All seems right on the surface but the film's uneasy tone never wavers as the frailties of the family slowly begins to unfold.The film moves at a somewhat leisurely pace but it is never tiresome. In fact is effortless and allows each character to reveal their intricacies without bombarding the viewer.The film deals with tragedy and suicide with care, and does not dwell on melodramatic expose. Each character's insecurity is hinted at but it is never too explicit where the audience need not discover it for themselves. Redford allows the viewer to empathize with each character by their own notion and presents the events in a way that shows without telling.Much of these emotions and complexities are drawn out by a family psychologist Dr. Berger (Judd Hirsch) who operates with a calmness and assurance that couples well with Hutton's performance. Hirsch does a marvelous job here as the seasoned doctor who meets with Conrad and evokes his true emotions about his brother's death not by textbook questions but by establishment of trust and transparency. Hirsch and Hutton work well here and the dialogue is natural and effortless, reminds me of a young Matt Damon and Robin Williams conversing in a similar setting in Good Will Hunting. Another couple that work well together with matching acting prowess is Tyler Moore and Sutherland. Playing the dichotomous couple who battle between acceptance and catharsis in the face of the tragedy, both actors nail their roles as the conscientious mother who struggles to create an intimacy with her son, and the quiet, agreeable father who attempts to find a common ground between the two polarized members of his family, respectively. Tyler Moore is unforgiving and tragic in her own sense as later scenes in the movie reveal but the film never leans in her favor. Alvin Sargent and Nancy Dowd, who wrote the screenplay, never neglect to give each character their own light and allows each character to operate effectively in separate scenes. However, the best scenes in the movie I think involve the supporting characters. the most revealing instances are between Conrad and his two female interests. It's here we are able to connect with Conrad and get a real feel for his pain. One scene has Conrad meeting with his friend from the psychiatric hospital Karen (Dinah Manoff) and they share the details of their life after their encounter. We can see Conrad's struggle discern his own condition in comparison to Karen's. We can see for ourselves the insincerity of his upbeat attitude and his attempt at normality. Director Robert Redford helps bring vibrancy to the film and we see a part of the story develop rather than unfold. It's at these moments we understand the struggle Conrad face's with his own emotional turmoil and we can see his only two connections with happiness left; although one character embodies happiness in the past, the other in the future. At the beginning and end, a version of Pachelbel's Canon rings out; a beautiful, grand composition that works as a synecdoche. To dip into musical terms, Pachelbel utilizes counterpoint, or a feature of music where every section plays their own tune at different times, yet the entirety of the piece sounds in harmony. It's a nice testament to the film, where each roles resonates solo and fortissimo, anchored by the unwavering performances of the cast. Yet the true genius of the film does not just lie in the players, but by the sure-handed direction of Robert Redford in his extraordinary debut.
Collier W (mx) wrote: Cronenberg is the director for hire here, and he has made a sublime racing picture, with an unforgettable cast of characters. Rattling confidently like the ramshackle cars driven by our team, the picture is simultaneously a sports parable about integrity and a deep meditation on the sport of drag racing. You can smell the fuel, the burning rubber, cold dawnings on a deserted racetrack by an alfalfa field, and all those oily characters. You may laugh at the butt rock anthems on the soundtrack, but if you don't root for Lonnie Johnson and Billy, I don't want to know you.
Tracy N (jp) wrote: This modern adaptation of Shakespeare's "Hamlet" is fresh, revolutionary - a truly brilliant realization! I think that even those who shy away from the Shakespeare's twisted, complex language would enjoy and relate to this fantastic piece of work. David Tennant brings charm and wit to the young Prince of Denmark like none other. The only fault (and its hardly a fault at that) is that his character becomes slightly reminiscent of the Tenth Doctor (of BBCs Doctor Who) at times. Sir Patrick Stewart is a splendid choice as King Claudius - his impatient expression perfectly displays the hidden evil behind the character. A MUST SEE FOR BOTH TENNANT AND SHAKESPEARE FANS!!!
