(fr) wrote: Very funny third part just as good as the rest if not better, Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker were great together, The action was fun and gripping at the same time, Critics were harsh but they always are on comedies.
(nl) wrote: The film's plot is born out of not too much, a child's memoir's all of which are not too interesting, and what little interest there is you know has been supped up for dramatic licensce. It probably got made to impress foreign audiences who like to buy into the old English high-society ideal.

But I'm pleased I did because this is an amazing film. With an interesting story, surrealist sets and lighting And I can frankly say I was very taken aback by the special effects used. For its day they are remarkable. The score gets a little repetitive. But that is a minor quibble. I did get the feeling that this film is anti-Semitic. The rabbi's are portrayed as wizards (even down to the pointy hats) and the Jews all wear black and are shown living in a ghetto. I did find myself laughing at the Knight Florien character. He is the love interest of the Rabbi's daughter Miriam. He has some amazing overstated facial expressions and movements. But I also couldn't help feel uncomfortable watching this too. The German Emperor in the film declares that all Jews will be banished from the city. What a frightening and unforeseen insight into the future of German political affairs. Wherever anti-Semitic or not? I'm very thankful that this film was made as clearly without this film there would be no Frankenstein monster.

As a pleasant diversion, Watson tries to immerse himself in American culture, guzzling milkshakes and chewing gum, much to Holmes's irritation. Basil Rathbone's hair is still a bit of a distraction though...

(gb) wrote: Visceral, inventive, hallucinatory, and downright terrifying. Darren Aronofsky has made something that is objectively compelling. This is strong Gen X filmmaking that also plays host to one of the strongest performances of modern cinema: Ellen Burstyn's transformative performance as Sara Goldfarb.
