There was true magic in the "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" TV series and I was sad when it abruptly went away in 1991. I admit I could not imagine it being re-tooled for the Broadway stage without a major loss of magic. I am overjoyed to be wrong. The stunning visuals are all here. The manic, exhausting pacing is all here. The eclectic bunch of characters (live actors, puppets, animations, and various hybrids) all make it alive and well to the stage. The sharp, wicked humor is all here. (Why, I laughed more at this show than any comedy - heck, any FIVE comedies - in the last year.) And, oh yes, Pee-wee Herman himself is reincarnated in all his nutty glory in this show. The years have not dulled him. In fact, he is more "Pee-Wee" here than he was twenty years ago. I have never watched a recording of a live performance where I wished more that I had been in the audience.I'll be watching my Blu-ray of "The Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway" again and again over the years. Hey, if I watch this masterpiece enough, maybe I'll never grow old. And maybe one day I'll be able to fly ... just like the genius maestro of this comic opera for kids of all ages.

Ceph J (us) wrote: "Cover" doesn't refer to cops watching criminals, it refers to married men who are secretly gay. This is a real issue but the movie doesn't take on the issue directly but rather covers it up as a thriller about whether a woman is guilty of murder. Worse, it spews lots of religious nonsense and insinuates that closeted gay men can't find religion. It's a terrible screenplay that's all over the map. The notable actors try to bring some sense. I liked Vivica A. Fox as Zahara who brings some sassiness to her role. Leon is a charismatic actor but he's wasted here as the "devil." Louis Gosset Jr., Clifton Davis, Roger Guenveur Smith, Aunjanue Ellis, and Razaaq Adoti deliver their melodramatic lines but the movie wears on you since the tone is so inconsistent. The line about "catching dust in your eye" is laughable because no one says that as a pick up line. The women's group who offers solace to marital victims is potentially funny; where's Medea when you need her to really spice up these scenes? Patti Labelle shows up to play a sympathetic woman with a gay son. The movie is so muddled in it's message that it contains both a homophobic message about AIDS "down low" and that gays should be tolerated.

Eric M (kr) wrote: Overwrought and overlong, "Gods & Generals" is too preachy and blunt in its endorsement of the Southern cause, doing very little to explore the moral and ethical ambiguity and dilemmas of the Civil War. Credit must be given where credit is due, however, for a harrowing portrayal of the Battle of Fredericksburg, particularly the charge of the Irish Brigade. For about 45 minutes, "Gods & Generals" is rousing cinema: emotional, visceral and moving. It's a shame it couldn't maintain that energy throughout. Watch the Battle of Fredericksburg, skip everything else.
Liam P (ru) wrote: First things first, I think this is a criminally underrated and forgotten masterpiece.Why? Because it's just freakin' brilliant!Seriously though, the films sense of menace is palpable. Carol White is a void within a void of meaninglessness, her life lacks direction, purpose; her life is as plain as her own name. She's the stereotypical waif 'homemaker', reserved, delicate, sensitive and stuck in her routine. She starts physically reacting to everything around her. Fumes choke her, fragrances cause panic attacks, chemicals make her bleed; she simply has an allergic reaction to everything around her for no particular reason.Todd Haynes camera frames Carol extremely wide within her world, he uses the sets/locations as a subtle indicator of the void she resides in that now bares down on her. In particular, her house is a huge vessel of modernist design, clean living, perfect in its layout. The house overwhelms the character, a new sofa the first indicator of a threat to her health. The films use of framing and movement is undoubtedly inspired by Antonioni and his use of cinematography, architecture and placing a character within this metropolis. It is the perfect device to present how Carol becomes unable to live within the modern world.Though it'ss set in the mid 80's, the world appears to get more contemporary as it goes on. The first half is filled with signifiers of the time yet the final scenes have no immediate sense of time or decade. It could be any time, any decade, anywhere.Julianne Moores performance is wonderful, she plays the character with such subtle reservation but quiet determination to find out what is happening to her and how she can fix it.The film offers no easy answers and doesn't guide the viewer to a definitive answer of what it's really trying to say. It doesn't even ask the viewer to sympathise with her plight but it does provoke a whole load of questions.Is the world really toxic to Carol? Is she making it all up to seek attention? Does this simply provide her life with a sense of meaning or purpose? Is illness contracted externally or does it originate from within? Is living in a white box the only answer to truly remove oneself from the toxicity modern world?As much as I love Todd Haynes other films (particularly Far From Heaven) I think this is his best film to date and one of the most essential American films of all time.

They did not expect that their prize would end up more human than animal and become part of their family for a short time. Fun family comedy from the 80's that still holds up today thanks to Rick Bakers work with Harry and its a movie that families can still watch together and have a laugh with.
