(es) wrote: This Means War is a lazy rendition of a good idea executed poorly. It carries a few good actors, and misuses them for the benefit of the diseased genre. McG has proven once again he has not taste in his design, and will push scenarios in any direction to squeeze anything out of the audience. However, the romance, and the comedy, the two ambitions of this move, were not achieved. Another film thrown in the waste bucket.

Thinking that they can have all the fun they want they discover they can only do certain things and are on a schedule and aren't having the fun they thought they were going have. The story and acting were good enough as well as it being pretty funny in certain spots to make the movie a success but there were times were they try to hard to make you laugh and it just is not funny at all. I was suprised to see Peter Billingsley (Ralphie from A Christmas Story) is the one who directed this which makes me respect the movie much more in a way. The movie is funny and entertaining and Jason Bateman and Vince Vaughn were at their best and provided enough laughs for the movie to be enjoyable enough.

It starts out Douglas Sirky with a ton of sex and little in the way of suspense, although there is some. Then out of nowhere the end becomes a weird combination of Rear Window and Joe Esterhaus Basic Instincty level insanity with Pedro's particular brand of amorality. Needless to say this is for specific tastes. They don't match mine this time. It has it's moments. Peter Coyote is so creepy. Victoria Abril is equally so.

(de) wrote: Turning the tale of Perseus into a fleshy, family-friendly action adventure, Desmond Davis' Ancient Greek Epic is a stop motion marvel, bathed in mystery and mythology.Clever cross-cutting and editing blurs battle boundaries between live action and animation and Davis' tender direction ensures the film oozes all-audience appeal and, more notably, childlike wonder throughout. A must-see, if only for Ray Harryhausen's majestic effects work. Things were better in the good old days.

(au) wrote: Coffy is the first female centred blaxsploitation flick, that features a strong female lead (Pam Grier) taking on pimps and drug dealers. Pam Grier gives an excellent performance as Coffy, a nurse out for revenge after her sister gets hooked on drugs. The story is basic, but the superb direction from now b-movie legend Jack Hill is phenomenal & it's this film that help put him on the map. This was shot in just over 2 weeks to get released before, Cleopatra Jones, a film which the company never got the rights to make. This quickly but brilliantly professionally film made Pam Grier the first black heroine in American Cinema. Coffy is a fun, fast paced, professionally made and enjoyable revenge flick which came before, Death Wish (which is often called the original revenge thriller), the film that made revenge cool.
