The film tells the tale of a group of war pigeons, who take on a dangerous mission during World War II. I must confess that the film was not as great as I expected, though some characters were funny. I do like the voice cast: Ewan McGregor (Star Wars Prequels, The Impossible), Ricky Gervais (Night at the Museum), John Cleese (Monty Python films, Rat Race), John Hurt (Alien, V for Vendetta), Jim Broadbent (Cloud Atlas, Harry Potter films) and Tim Curry (The Rocky Horror Picture, IT). Valiant (McGregor) is a small pigeon, who wants to leave the countryside to become a War hero. In London he meets Bugsy (Gervais), a dirty pigeon who is a hustler who tries to avoid two thugs trying to get him. Both Valiant and Bugsy are sent to recruit training. Under the command of Sergeant Monty (Broadbent), they start their training. Meanwhile, German falcon General Von Talon (Curry) and his henchmen are taking out war pigeons that are crossing the English Channel. Can Valiant and his friends get across and deliver a message that might end the War?

The 1st half is mostly comedy with gimmicks, the 2nd half improves with drama and a bit more believability. Love the scene of Jessica and her Mom on the bench...

(jp) wrote: For the first (and thus far the only) time in his career, Chevy Chase plays a genuinely sympathetic character in Neil Simon's Seems Like Old Times. This time around, Chase is a divorced novelist who is abducted by crooks and set up as the fall guy in a bank robbery. Arrested, Chase manages to escape and to make his way to the home of ex-wife Goldie Hawn, now a highly respected liberal defense attorney. Chase's unexpected arrival coincides with an important dinner party on behalf of Goldie's current husband, district attorney Charles Grodin. At first making every effort to give Chase the boot, Hawn, ever the champion of the underdog finally decides to help him out of his dilemma--much to the discomfort of her politically ambitious husband. Wisely, Grodin does not play his character as an unpleasant stuffed shirt; he is as likeable as Chase and Hawn, giving the farcical plot convolutions a tinge of reality. We care about the people involved, thus the laughs spring as much from characterization as they do from the situation. If only Seems Like Old Times didn't have that lame-brained final close up.....

Mel Gibson may still be a pariah, but whether he deserves that or not, he's still got the goods that made him a megastar in the first place. Trejo is great as ever. Michelle Rodriguez cements her status as big boss queen of all the things. Bring on part 3.

(ag) wrote: We Are Still Here starts with such promise. From the opening shot, you're in for a gorgeous film, visually speaking: the camerawork is crisp, and lingers in a way that is mesmerizing but without feeling too long or drawn out. For the most part, it's a quiet little film, with only hints of a musical score and scenes without heavy amounts of dialogue. As a whole, it seems to evoke the same kind of feeling of the horror films of the 70s and early 80s: in particular, there seems to be a lot of Carpenter here. All this promise in the first third or so of the film is what makes the final result so disappointing. This is clearly a low-budget film, and a first time directing gig for Ted Geoghegan, and in many ways, it shows. While the cinematography is nice, many of the other technical aspects, namely sound design and lighting, certainly have a low-budget quality to them. That's not inherently a negative quality, but when some technical aspects are impressive and some aren't, the unbalance can be distracting instead of charming. The film draws from some of the negatives of 70s horror as well. The acting here is pretty unimpressive for the most part (Barbara Crampton is fine, and certainly a standout), and doesn't help the lack of characterization outside of the two leads, a pair of grieving parents following the death of their son. With that said, the ending is actually quite poignant, and puts the film's title in a new perspective: unfortunately, it's just not enough to help the film's struggling narrative overall.
