(jp) wrote: Even though the setup is rather formulaic, NOTES ON A SCANDAL is a well-executed story about secrets and manipulative relationships, while also slipping in some commentary on gender and class. Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett star as high school teachers who become friends when the former finds about the latter's illicit relationship with a student. However, Judi Dench's character has motives of her own that are gradually revealed as the film progresses. For all of the film's trappings as this "friend becomes a stalker" type of story, Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett's performances anchor it in reality and give it a classy feeling that a lot of other similar films lack. I must say that I completely bought Judi Dench as an aging schoolteacher. Cate Blanchett also did a nice job in a role that I haven't really seen her play before, and a degree of vulnerability that she didn't really show in something like LORD OF THE RINGS. Seeing as her character gets caught doing something rather stupid, it would be easy to just dismiss her character as unlikeable from the get-go, but the way the plot develops actually makes her quite sympathetic (at least compared to Judi Dench's character). If there's anything I can find fault with, it's that the plot really doesn't aspire to be anything other than a melodramatic thriller. Thankfully, the performances and overall execution of the material, along with the direction and cinematography lend it some much-needed credibility. I also loved Philip Glass' score. Overall, NOTES ON A SCANDAL is quite predictable, but it sets itself apart by its pedigree in front of, and behind, the camera.

(nl) wrote: This was fantastic. The Characters were very easy to relate to and I think this film deserves better attention then it got. Perhaps I am biased? But the characters really came alive and struck a chord (so to speak) in me.Based in Brazil during a period of Dictatorship, young and raw kids kidnap a U.S. Ambassador. The ending made me tear.
(gb) wrote: a story inspired by Neil Armstrong's quote, "that one step of man, one giant leap of mankind." But one does not need to step on the moon to understand what it means. Pontiac Moon tells the story of a dysfunctional family, an irresponsible father who never listens to anybody, a mother who's crippled with fear caused by an accident, and a child who hasn't known how to enjoy life around him ---- and that crazy trip to the Spires of the Moon that's both eventful and momentous as they learn a lesson or two from each other. I like introspective films. And this one will surely go to my list of favorites. The characters are so well-played, especially that of Andy (Ryan Todd). He played his character with such depth and sincerity that I find very touching.

(ca) wrote: Evil Laugh concerns an old orphanage (the site of a murderous massacre) that has been bought up by a young medical school yuppie who is going to spend the weekend renovating the place with his girlfriend (Kim McKamy aka pornstar Ashley Gere) and his other yuppie friends. Before any of the friends can make it to the house, a sinister murderer pops up and takes out the new owner. When the group gets there, they shrug off his disappearance and begin renovating, partying, and sexing it up until they start getting bumped off one by one by this unseen killer with a sinister laugh. Though released in 1988, the quality of film makes it look as though it came out in the VERY early 80's. Let's not forget the laughable effects and acting, but somehow...this film is actually kinda fun. There are a couple of genuinely funny moments (which are intentional as the film tries to go the horror/comedy route), and one of the best characters comes in the form of Barney, a horror enthusiast who clearly knows what's happening and what's going to happen throughout the entire movie, yet no one will listen to him or give me a ride into town. The idea of the one smart character amidst a bunch of dumb ones is rarely used, but hilarious when pulled off decently. The two biggest names in this include the two lead females, one being Gere, whose character is about as far away from her pornstar career as possible. There's even a nude shower scene for her character, but it's clearly a body double. Guess she had a small shy side before she started taking dicks up the butt. The other "star" is blonde bombshell Jody Gibson, who shows off the titties nicely in her ONLY movie. Rather than a popular actress, Gibson is best known as a top Madam of a Hollywood Whorehouse. Go figure. Overall, Evil Laugh is far from greatness, especially when the reveal of the killer makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. If given some alcohol and a group of friends, this film may be pretty enjoyable to laugh at.

(mx) wrote: While going on a camping trip a family finds themselves in the wake of a nuclear attack. The world as they know it erupts into chaos as people flee from the aftermath of an atomic bomb being dropped on Los Angeles. In order to survive, the family gears up at a nearby township and flees for the hills in order to bunker down and defend themselves from the ensuing panicked populace. Filmed in the wake of the Cuban missile crisis, Panic in Year Zero! plays on the cold war paranoia of the time and for the most part does it quite well. A bit of suspension of disbelief is required however, as clearly any sort of scientific fact regarding a nuclear strike is certainly thrown out the window. There??s no fallout, no radiation sickness or any sort of ill effects from the deadly blast (all you need to do apparently is run for the hills and you??ll be just fine). That being said, the film is dripping with social commentary in terms of man??s savage nature in the shadow of anarchy and societal collapse. The focus of the story revolves around the idyllic early 60s generation family; alpha male breadwinner, subservient kindhearted housewife, and 2 perfect teenage poster children - 1 of each gender. As the hero/father figure of the story sets out to protect his family and ideals at all costs he encounters all manner of disagreeable hooligans and deals with them accordingly. Keep in mind this was made in 1962 so don??t be expecting ultraviolence to any significant degree (although the film does contain its share of murders and even a rape scene). The film moves along at a brisk pace and manages to keep things interesting throughout despite short interludes of moral introspection. It??s interesting to note that Frankie Avalon plays the part of the loyal son to a T. Generally, the film is well acted and written with entertainment in mind and should provide an amusing diversion for most fans of Hollywood B grade cinema.
