Adam F (ca) wrote: I'm not sure who "Necessary Evil: The Villains of DC Comics" is aimed towards but it's an enjoyable documentary nonetheless. As you might expect, the film discusses in length the notable villains of the DC Universe. It covers old favorites like The Joker and Lex Luthor, famous villainesses like Catwoman and Poison Ivy and new villains like Wonder Woman's half-brother The First Born. Guest speakers like Guillermo Del Toro, Wrestling stars and psychologists talk about the need of a good villain to contrast a hero. Recurring elements in characters like The Penguin, General Zod, Sinestro and Ocean Master are discussed at length. We also learn why these characters are so important when building a rich mythology and the different interpretations of other iconic supervillains like the Flash's Rogues Gallery or the Legion of Doom. We get clips from films, video games, TV shows, comic book panels and more to make this more than just a collection of interviews and talking heads.A flaw in this documentary is that it often feels more like a bonus feature than an actual film. Not to say at all that it's bad, but if you're a hardcore DC Comics fan, there's a lot here that you already know and you'll be surprised to see that some characters are not mentioned at all in the documentary. There are no clips of Heath Ledger as the Joker and not even a sentence about Superman's foe Mr. Mxyzptlk. No Christopher Nolan Joker? Isn't it strange that one of the most iconic villains brought to film is barely addressed in a documentary all about iconic DC Comics characters? As for that imp from the 4th Dimension that's constantly trying to meddle in the Man of Steel's life, he and other more comedic villains are never mentioned at all and to me, it felt like it was as if the people making this documentary had an agenda to not truly address the question, but to give credibility to comic books instead of pleasing the already existing fan base. This is why the movie felt very much like it was targeted not to people that are unfamiliar with the characters of DC Comics but to the casual fans. I felt like the whole thing was aimed towards the guys who had some toys as kids and who have been watching the movies or playing the video games but haven't read a comic in several years. It really leaves you wanting more if you're a hardcore fan (which you might guess I am).I felt like there is a lot of missing information because of my familiarity with the subject matter. For example, there is a whole segment about female villains and Catwoman in particular is highlighted but her multiple film roles or the fact that she even starred in her own spin-off film are never really addressed. Granted, that movie is universally reviled but it does speak volumes about the character's popularity that a studio was willing to make a movie solely to bank on the Catwoman name. If you're not at all familiar with any of the characters, I'm not sure what you would be doing watching the movie in the first place but I often found that it went through a lot of characters' backstories very quickly so I can easily see someone getting lost when it comes to all of the different colourful criminals, magical beings and aliens shown off. I was also hoping to see more of the outsider's view on the characters (from the psychologists or people not involved directly in the publication of the graphic novels).It sounds like I'm really coming down hard on the movie but I'm not. It's very professionally done and for the immense amount of things there are to talk about when it comes to the foes of Batman, Green Lantern, Superman and Wonder Woman, it does a pretty good job covering a lot of ground. Even as someone very familiar with the characters I did learn new things, I enjoyed seeing the excitement and enthusiasm that everyone involved has for the fiction and Christopher Lee does a fine job narratingthe whole thing. I'm not sure if he heard this was a movie about bad guys so he amped up the sinister-ness of his voice or the people in charge kept telling "Needs more Saruman!" but either way it was a lot of fun to listen to. It would be really exciting to see a follow up on these, one focussing solely on one of the chapters, like an hour and a half discussion on "polar opposite villains", "movie interpretations" or "female villains". I doubt we'll ever see these, but like any well made documentary, it will certainly generate a lot of interesting conversations between those who have seen. For this reason I do recommend it for casual fans of the comics but there's something here for anyone that's remotely interested in the characters. My copy came included with the new "Batman: Arkham Origins" game and for me, it was a very nice, entertaining bonus I can see myself watching again with some friends so that we can discuss some of our favorite characters.

Tommy See the Treasure S (it) wrote: It is not difficult to see why Charlie Chaplin's most beloved alter-ego, The Tramp, has had such an enduring legacy in the heart of cinema. The Tramp is surely one of the most likable and sympathetic characters to ever grace a cinema screen. With his baggy pants, tattered tight-coat and toothbrush moustache, he is absurd and comical in appearance. Yet watching one of Chaplin's most revered classics, The Gold Rush, I was struck by the overall depth and complexity of the character. The Tramp travels to take part in the Klondike gold rush, only to find himself stranded with another prospector, Big Jim(Mack Swain) and Black Larsen(Tom Murray), an escaped convict. In a snow-surrounded cabin the trio get into a series of surreal and slapstick adventures, with Big Jim and Black Larsen quarreling over a gold deposit the latter has come across. One particularly funny scene is The Tramp serving up his own boot, boiled, as a meal for himself and his starving comrade. It's a bit absurd, but what makes the scene so funny is the typically deadpan nature of Chaplin's acting. His behavior suggests that there is nothing unconventional about eating your shoelaces like spaghetti. The second part of the movie sees the Tramp in a gold rush town, where he falls in love with a charming lady named Georgia(Georgia Hale). Blinded by his affection for Georgia, the gullible Tramp is unable to see that she is only playing him for laughs. Okay so now that I've rather meaninglessly outlined the plot I'd like to get to the root of just what is so appealing about this movie. Some of the comedy has dated a little, but for the most part - and not to sound like a bitter old curmudgeon here! - I still found it funnier than a lot of comedies that are released nowadays. The slapstick, however ludicrous, is painstakingly orchestrated, and the comic timing of Chaplin is exquisite. This movie contains one of his most famous bits- the roll-and-fork dance; although I'd seen this bit imitated and referenced countless times in other media( 'the Simpsons' for example) it still made me laugh. The supporting performances are all excellent too. Georgia Hale is superb and natural as the object of The Tramp's affect, the boisterous and popular Georgia. Georgia is an interesting and challenging character. She's not instantly likeable, but her character has personality and substance. As the movie progresses you begin to see her as deeply flawed and insecure, but not entirely unsympathetic. Mack Swain is also very funny as Big Jim McKay and Malcolm Waite fits the bill as the arrogant villain. The Tramp is an extremely lovable character who is impossible not to root for. He is the perfect comic hero: flawed but kind, hopeless yet optimistic. We sympathize with him throughout all his indignities and woes. He often seems doomed to misfortune, yet just as often seems to be touched by providence. In one early scene our oblivious hero is followed by a bear along a snowy cliff. The bear eventually disappears into a cavern and the Tramp continues his journey, blissfully unaware that he was ever in any danger at all. It's perhaps the most remarkable and quietly hilarious scene of the movie, and it also says something vital about the innocent nature of the hero. In another funny scene, the Tramp inadvertently serves a comeuppance to a womanizing bully(Malcolm Waite). Yet for all his moments of fortune, he is just as likely to end up hanging on for dear life on the edge of a cliff. His existence it seems is one of many ups and downs. As well as this, the character proved an interesting study in strained genteelness. In the early scenes in the cabin, while his comrades are driven to madness and violence from greed and hunger, The Tramp stoically endures. In the face of ludicrous and brutal external events he does not forget his manners. He tips his hat, adjusts his coat, and does his best to hang on to the tattered threads of his dignity. And there is just something altogether lovable about a character who pedantically wipes a plate clean, only to serve upon it a boiled boot. The Gold Rush is a sweet and moving classic of the silent movie era and it's not difficult to see why it's the movie Chaplin most wanted to be remembered for.
Paul K (nl) wrote: Rather than the typical American t&a summer party film, this one adopts the more relaxed, European attitudes toward sex and nudity and does fairly well at delivering its message that one must take risks and live more freely to be truly happy in life, and that love is to be shared rather than jealously guarded. It verges on the cusp of something substantial, but doesn't quite make it over the hump. The plot, acting, and dialogue take too many shortcuts, too many easy, un-nuanced ways out of situations, and yet, I'd be willing to bet that Greek tourism owes at least a few tourist dollars to this movie. The scenery is refreshingly beautiful - and that includes both the Greek village that has been carved into the edge of a volcanic bluff overlooking the sun-drenched sea and the care-free (and mostly clothes-free) people from other places that populate the village's patios and beaches in the summer. Valerie Quennessen is stunning as the androgynous sprite who re-injects life into the relationship of the bored and restless couple played by Daryl Hannah and Peter Gallagher (who subsequently played the baddie in Sex, Lies, and Videotape). Their cowboy rendition of "Happy Birthday" was the most humorous and genuine moment in the film, although the rest of the scene seemed a little over the top and left me with a feeling that a lot of back story had been cut. Gallagher's character reminds me both in appearance and, perhaps less so, in demeanor of the Vincent Chase character in Entourage. A worthwhile film, if just to "enjoy the scenery" and daydream about spending a sun drenched summer on a Greek isle.
