Darby's Rangers torrent reviews
(gb) wrote: Not at all what I expected, but that's a good thing since this movie had me laughing almost nonstop. Peter O'Toole had his heart broken again by just missing out on finally winning Best Actor for his role as a dirty old man who falls in love with his best friend's daughter's niece, whom he affectionately calls Venus. Maurice is a veteran actor who is somewhat rapidly dying, though you wouldn't know it from how young Jessie makes his feel. A very good movie with a lot of funny, albeit dirty dialogue.

(jp) wrote: A better-than-average soundtrack and a better-than-average Shakespearean adaptation make for a better-than-average high school romcom.
(mx) wrote: This is an interesting documentary made by Al Pacino about him adapting a version of Richard III. We see behind the scenes rehersals with the performed versions and interviews with anyone from scholars to people on the street about who Shakespeare was.

(gb) wrote: Lee's latest does have it's moments of brilliance, but it's gratuitous length and flawed script make it a film that's parts are better than it's whole.
