Timothy S (ag) wrote: I've always been a sucker for legal dramas both factual and fictional, but the small independent film "Puncture" is somewhat unique to the genre. True it's an underdog, David and Goliath story based on true events, but you won't find any flowery speeches or last minute courtroom revelations here. This is a curiously understated film that draws you in because these people are so atypical and the case it presents is so vital and encompassing. The screenplay was co-written by one of the lawyers involved, ensuring that the film is true, and the performances are solid. Perhaps the biggest surprise here is Chris Evans, getting his first chance to actually prove himself as an actor, who gives a marvelous performance on so many levels. If more people had seen the film, this would have possibly been the performance to elevate his acting career, if not his star appeal. I was also very impressed with Marshall Bell and Brett Cullen in supporting roles, two actors who have never gotten a chance to shine like they do here.There's a devastating twist at the end that you won't see coming, and while the final scene has the feel of a feel-good Hollywood picture, it also rings of authenticity as the story is true. "Puncture" is a memorable film told with little flash or flair, but with solid acting and a smart script. The story is compelling enough to stand on its own and it draws you in with precious little effort.

Gordon B (de) wrote: A stunning debut, Thorton's quiet and moving story is just as sincere as its lead character.5 minutes into Sling Blade there's a scene that draws me in; The main character sits cloaked in shadows and slowly describes in detail how he murdered two people. Not only is the sequence beautifully composed, I couldn't find a trace of the now well known Billy Bob Thorton anywhere in his performance 5 minutes into Sling Blade there's a scene that draws me in; The main character sits cloaked in shadows and slowly describes in detail how he murdered two people.

Nate A (jp) wrote: Nothing particularly special about this heist movie except the dry British wit and charm prevalent through the entire run time. Outstanding cast of a bunch of ex-soldiers thrown out of the service in disgrace who are given one last chance to strike it big.The ending is...well, without giving anything away, I'll just say that it seems a tad unrealistic given all the precautions taken up to that point.Also notable is one of the earliest portrayals of homosexuality in film that I can think of (although it's hinted at and never explicitly talked about).
Jesse G (de) wrote: A melodrama with epic moments. Best is the "Hot Voodoo" number where Marlene transforms from a gorilla to a sexy african siren in 2 minutes flat! AMAZING! Plot a little trite and acting a bit stiff. Catch also the creepy sexual undertones between Marlene and her YOUNG son.
Ashley H (br) wrote: Fierce Creatures is a disappointing film. It is about zookeepers who struggle to deal with the policies of changing directors. Jamie Lee Curtis and John Cleese give terrible performances. The script is badly written. Fred Schepisi and Robert Young did horrible jobs directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.

Steve P (it) wrote: NOTE: This film was recommended to me by Ryan Clevenger for "Steve Pulaski Sees It."Living in Illinois, Space Jam is a film that hits the tender spots of the last two generations; one generation that got to experience Michael Jordan's unfathomable legacy as arguably the greatest basketball player who ever lived, and the other, mine, that reflects on his legacy through highlights and documentaries to keep the memory of such an all-star alive. Jordan's legacy didn't stop at on-court talent, as he was one of the most marketed athletes of his time and helped popularize the NBA, let alone the Chicago Bulls, on a previously unforeseen international level.If we remove the nostalgia factor from Space Jam, which is a very difficult thing to do by the way, then the film serves as Jordan's versatility. After retiring from the NBA at a relatively young age to pursue a career in baseball, Jordan only became more of a fascinating person, in addition to someone with impeccable charisma. Space Jam exists as a response to Jordan's departure from the NBA to the MLB, as the Looney Tune gang of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety Bird, Sylvester the Cat, Porky Pig, and Lola Bunny all call Jordan out of retirement when they challenge a group of intergalactic invaders from "Moron Mountain" to a basketball game in exchange for the planet.The Looney Tunes thing this will be an easy win, until the aliens from Moron Mountain, who are relatively puny in size and strength, find a way to steal the talents of star basketball players like Charles Barkley and Larry Johnson and become the "Monstars" of the court. Meanwhile, Jordan agrees to play for the Looney Tunes team, but it takes all of the five minutes of practice to show that the team is disproportionately talented towards Jordan. As a result, the team indulges in some aggressive training tactics to beat the Monstars and save the planet.As an amalgamation of live-action and animation, especially in an age where Pixar was coming on the scene and traditional animation was soon to be phased out, Space Jam is bright and vivid. The real-life characters of Michael Jordan, Wayne Knight, who has an amusing role, like he always does, Larry Bird, and even Bill Murray's interactions with the animated characters of Bugs Bunny and the like in a convincing, believable manner. The result is a beautifully colored and nicely executed mix of whimsy.Because both worlds of reality and animation are explored here, Space Jam has the luxury of being a film that can go beyond traditional boundaries of a sports film, and the Looney Tunes are no better characters to incite such zaniness. The animated bunch are quick-witted and ecstatic, and Jordan is clearly doing this for fun and excitement rather than a phoned-in project or another endorsement. Had Space Jam been more of a lackluster cash-in, sports fans and Jordan fans would've seen it from a mile away and dismissed the film immediately. However, because everyone involved recognizes what a zany project this is, they don't try to fight the lunacy, but instead, play along, and that provides us, the audience, with a wickedly entertaining stride into a lively sports film that is so fun you almost, almost miss the cliched underdog element.Starring: Michael Jordan, Wayne Knight, Bill Murray, and Larry Bird. Directed by: Joe Pytka.
