Mo'Nique deserves the high praise she got for a really quite incredibly fearless performance. Mariah Carey is even quite good ... she disappears into her role. I'm quite a fan of melodrama, and I like TV-movie-of-the-week redemption stories. Although I admire this film, I didn't really like it. I think it has a lot to do with it's origin as a Oprah Winfrey/Tyler Perry co-production. It's really not in my wheel house. I would say that it seems to pass the normal boundaries of melodrama and moves into the realm of the really excessive. Things aren't just hard for our protagonist ... or even really really hard ... they are unimaginably hard to the point of straining credulity. It also is sort of an odd homage to liberal bureaucratic institutions. Where, in the past, religion would have been the source of our heroine's redemption, in this film, the modern social work/welfare establishment saves her. Truly a melodrama for the modern age.

(nl) wrote: 30 Days of Night could have been a 7.5/10 in my book, but unfortunately it is not. I think 30 Days of Night has a great gimmick, vampires in a place where there is a month of night, which sets up a great survival horror scenario, which alongside of atmosphere, the filmmakers really capitalized on. So what's not to like? The ending is quite literally one of the worst endings I have ever seen. I have three reasons for this statement. 1) As the movie was going along quite well, as the climax approaches, they adopt a terribly cliche approach. Hopefully anyone who has seen this knows what I am talking about, because I'm not going to spoil it.2) The final battle ends suddenly and on a note that is anti-dramatic.3) After the final battle, there is no mention whatsoever of what happens to the band of vampires that has been murdering the entire town for the past month. Fact is, this could have been a 7.5/10, which would be rounded up to an 8/10 for rating purposes. Instead, it needs to be rounded up to a 7/10, all because of the ending. 6/10

The entire infamous scene in this movie isn't nearly as bad as people say, probably because I didn't care about the character at all. Also, don't be confused, this movie is just a stereotypical revenge flick told in reverse and therefore isn't all that original in its overarching story. However, Noe does have a certain style to his camerawork that makes the atmosphere worth experiencing, not to mention an excellent central performance from Vincent Cassel.

(kr) wrote: In 1963, BBC Head of Serials Sydney Newman(Brian Cox) is looking to fill a time slot on Saturdays around 5:00 pm. Along that line of thought, he has a science fiction program in mind, to be produced by his former protege Verity Lambert(Jessica Raine). She in turn hires Waris Hussein(Sacha Dhawan) to be the show's first director and William Hartnell(David Bradley, who is superb), a veteran character actor who was looking for a change of pace, to be its star. All of which Newman approves of, just as long as there are no bug eyed monsters... "An Adventure in Space and Time" is a mostly inspired look at the early years of Doctor Who, saluting its heroes.(Sydney Newman also having developed "The Avengers," one of my other all-time favorite shows, makes him eligible for sainthood in my book.) Instead of dampening the magic of the show in this lively backstage look, this docudrama actually adds some magic of its own, while thankfully having little nostalgia for the time period involved. One part of that is the constant change involved with Doctor Who that William Hartnell who enjoyed a winter revival with the show felt increasingly worn down by, along with his poor health.(It's a nice touch that there are also mentions of some of his other roles.) That leads me into the only serious problem I have with this movie. From what has been written elsewhere but not really alluded to here, the Doctor was actually a co-lead character with Ian Chesterton in the first two years of the program, with Hartnell actually not being in a huge chunk in the serial 'The Keys of Marinus' from season one.

Anyway you get my point and if filmmakers were going to give Sherlock Holmes another cinematic go-around it was time to try something new... and thankfully they did. The film-makers this time wisely decided to make Without a Clue a semi-spoof of the character Sherlock Holmes adding nice amounts of comedy into the mix.The plot to this version of Sherlock Holmes turns the original vision on its head by making Sherlock Holmes partner/sidekick Dr Watson (Ben Kingsley) the crime-solving mastermind. While solving crimes Watson wrote many stories about a character he created named Sherlock Holmes. To make the character real he hires a down-and-out bum actor (Michael Caine) whom he coaches through solving crimes. While bickering behind the public's eye throughout most of the film, they both always tend to mend fences while solving a crime of some stolen money printing plates. All clues lead Holmes and Watson (or should it be Watson and Holmes?) to devious criminal master Professor Moriarity (Paul Freeman, whom you might remember from Raiders of the Lost Ark).Despite having strong production values and solid directing, the main draw of this film is it's stupendous cast. To be honest with Michael Caine and Ben Kingsley they could have made this a serious Sherlock Holmes adaption and it would have been just as good or even better. These guys are great and complement each other perfectly! I had a ball of a time seeing Holmes as a drunk, skirt chasing buffoon and Watson as the cool and collected crime solver. The film has some great comedic sequences and thankfully the filmmakers opted out at making this a complete slap stick comedy. Still however people expecting a complete comedy with wall-to-wall laughs will come out a little disappointed as the laughs are spaced out and even mixed in with some downright serious moments. It's actually a strange combination as if the filmmakers weren't sure if they wanted to go the complete comedy route our not and the result is just a little bit confused. Perhaps with a little tighter script and maybe a little more comedy this Sherlock Holmes spoof could have been even better. As it is it is still satisfying and the cast just fantastic. Actually after watching the film I actually craved seeing Michael Caine and Ben Kinsley in a serious adaption of a Holmes story. They were that perfectly cast!
