(jp) wrote: A decent documentry over the arcade game craze of 80's. The movie is more about the young players that made names for themselves playing arcade games and where they are now. Some bits are pretty funny over champs getting there high scores debunked by other players. The documentry feels like it runs long with nonsense fillers when it could have added advertisements from the era instead. The people interviewed are quite the characters.

(kr) wrote: Picture a goofy song and dance musical partially that takes place in Auschwitz, and uses the concentration camp and enduring tragedy as a source of gags and jokes. Distasteful? Yes, and yet when the Muppets Most Wanted use the Soviet Gulags, which have a kill count of 2-3 times that of the Nazi concentration camps, as a springboard for jokes, nobody really cares. The leading humans have boring roles as written, so there's no much room for judging their performances there, but Jason Segel also had a very plain role in The Muppets, which he managed to fill in with his charisma and attention to performing detail. Ricky Gervais has only his trademark snide attitude to fill in a role with, which comes off as bad as you might expect.The songs were written by Bret McKenzie, who won an Oscar for his previous effort on The Muppets, but appears to have given much less effort in this endeavor. The strongest song in this movie by a large margin is "Together Again" from The Muppets Take Manhattan.Rod Serling, who understood the narrative possibilities of tragedy and fear better than anyone finished a script with the following: "All the Dachaus must remain standing. The Dachaus, the Belsens, the Buchenwalds, the Auschwitzes-all of them. They must remain standing because they are a monument to a moment in time when some men decided to turn the Earth into a graveyard. Into it they shoveled all of their reason, their logic, their knowledge, but worst of all, their conscience. And the moment we forget this, the moment we cease to be haunted by its remembrance, then we become the gravediggers. Something to dwell on and to remember, not only in the Twilight Zone but wherever men walk God's Earth."
(nl) wrote: In "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men," Sara(Julianne Nicholson), a graduate student, interviews various men about their sex lives for her thesis, even secretly taping a couple of them(Christopher Meloni & Denis O'Hare) talking about sexually harassing a woman(Lorri Bagley) at an airport. And that's kind of the level of discourse she has to listen to, day in and day out. Added to that, as a woman, she is expected to be in a relationship with a man, hopefully not like her subjects but maybe like the one(Will Arnett) who is locked out of his apartment.(Or to take a more extreme example: In an early episode of "Homicide: Life on the Streets," Detective Kay Howard(Melissa Leo) confides to a therapist about her conflicting feelings about men, after, as a homicide detective, seeing the worst they have to offer.) Newly single, people comment on Sara's wardrobe and her haircut and her professor(Timothy Hutton) suggests she should be more sociable. As intriguing as this might sound and despite incredibly and inventively realizing the cinematic potential in such material, the movie sadly never quite goes beyond the conceptual level. And I think a lot of that has to do with never hearing Sara's questions to hear what she is so curious about, so she sadly remains little more than a cipher. Like "The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy" points out, sometimes the questions are just as important as the answers.
