Head of the Family
The "head" of the family is literally that--a giant head on a tiny body, who psychically controls the rest of his even weirder family.

Morpheus O (ag) wrote: The whole premise/plot for this film is that this lady/the Mother, the main character, looks crazy as she looks, & demands help looking, for her daughter on board a plane where there is little, if any, evidence that the child was ever even on the plane, such as the passenger manifest. The main problem with that is the reality that, especially in a post 9.11 world, cameras are everywhere... There are camera's on school buses, long(er) distance buses (Greyhound, etc.), trains (Amtrak, Northern Pacific, etc.), public transportation, etc., etc., etc. Including inside of transportation hubs, like airports, etc. Apparently this film exists in a universe where camera's either don't exist or, perhaps, no one has thought to use them in such a new & innovative way... That plot hole is gargantuan & makes this story completely unbelievable, although not entirely uncompelling. As the story develops the idea of a hijacking, devised by the air marshal, & accompanied by at least one member of the flight crew, gets underway. That was so predictable that I, literally, laughed out loud... The rest of the film has more holes, inconsistencies & unlikelihoods, etc., in it, too. But, at this point, this film has become comedic farce. Such as why doesn't the Mother demand to talk to the FBI about her kidnapped child?! One might think that this would be common sense; in Hollywood, ..hmm, not so much!And the FBI always likes to interview hijackers. Carson, the air marshal, could have given them a story, that she would only communicate with him, for example; but that would look odd, at least, to the Captain, of the plane, as he's the only other person, other than the flight attendant who's in on it, that knows about the `hijacking`, as this `hijacker` has made no threats, no demands & has been seen carrying no weapons of any kind. Maybe the Captain is just an idiot, like, at least, most of the other characters in this film. When Carson is leaving the plane, to get the FBI, he does it with the detonator still in his pocket. In order for his plan to work he needs to detonate the bombs, kill the Mother & leave the detonator on her, so that it looks like she detonated the bombs; allowing him to leave the plane with his plan unfinished probably would've worked in her favor...And the only obvious reason that the flight attendant that's in on it is in on it is to keep the child's name off the passenger manifest. There is certainly no point in her not leaving the plane with the rest of the crew. When she is running away from the plane she does it by herself & she looks guilty as hell... And then there's the fact that the kid, apparently, did not wake up the entire time that she had been kidnapped, implying that she had been drugged. And did only, eventually, wake up at the end of the film...when it was all over, with no mention of the idiot that did this or how they did it. I did like the part at the end where the Mother has a moment, albeit a silent one, with one of the two Arab guys that were briefly accused of taking her daughter. I.e., they obviously did not do it. Translation: Not all Arabs are terrorists. The trailer for this film looked interesting, even compelling... What a shame that the actual film was, basically, the exact opposite.

Beth W (us) wrote: This is the third film I have seen by Kurosawa after "Rashomon" and "Ran", and while I admit it didn't engage me as much as the other two films did, and at times it seems rather slow, I have come to appreciate it more over the past few days since I got my hands on it. I love the fact that the tragedy that occurs in this film seems to come from the little actions the characters do, such as Shingen dying from a gunshot wound simply because he wanted to listen to a flute, the downfall of the Takeda clan brought about because Shingen's son simply wanted to stand out from his father and so on. As ever in a Kurosawa film, the imagery is incredible and often it is clear the man knew what he wanted when he shot this.

Bruce B (ag) wrote: Before "The Blob" there was X-The Unknown, a creepy, scary film by Hammer, the makers of the Quatermass series. Radioactive mud rises to the surface to terrorize soldiers and residents of a scottish village. As it is radioactive several victims succomb to burns and worse while it is on the prowl for radiation that makes it grow even larger. While the special effects are dated it can still send a chill through you with the melting scenes and the longest scream I ever heard in a sci-fi film. Decent script and excellent acting by american actor Dean Jagger and british actors Leo Mckern and Edward Chapman help to make this film well worth the rental. 3 Stars 1-16-13
Petros T (es) wrote: "Con Air" is pretty spectacular. It's a great example of a film that takes a simple but effective premise and just runs with it the whole way. It's definitely far from flawless, but delivers the goodies, i.e. is filled with great, explosive action. The cast is good too, especially John Malkovich, Ving Rhames and Steve Buscemi (and mainly excluding Nicolas Cage and his moronic accent), while Cameron Poe's characterization gives the film a solid backbone for the unfolding of the action.

Allan C (br) wrote: Far from a perfect film, but "Highlander" has a lot to like about it; a strong cast (Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery and Clancy Brown as the villain), a bunch of songs and music by Queen, and most memorably, the film had a really strong story idea (immortal beings roaming the earth for centuries, with swords in hand, waging a secret war with one another to become "the one"). Where the film falls apart is with a muddled backstory, Connery inexplicably playing a Spaniard, and pretty much anytime the film veered away from action or revealing more more the Highlander mythology. Still despite it's faults, this is a solid modern day fantasy film that really does stand out as something unique and interesting. No sequels ever really lived up to this flawed original, but this might be a series worthy of a decent remake. And this film also reminded me of how good Lambert is onscreen. Too bad he only had a limited number of actually decent films.
