(br) wrote: "Bomb It" is nothing if not ambitious. Filmed on five continents, it attempts to document the international spread of the graffiti movement. Whether it is presenting juvenile taggers who merely want to scribble their names on the side of an abandoned building or eloquent mural artists and graphic designers, it never judges. The filmmakers clearly feel, as do I, that street art can be legitimate, but they leave it to the viewer to draw the lines as they see fit. Although it is constantly energetic, the documentary hits a few stumbling blocks when the city hopping structure begins to grow repetitive. There's a lack of any overarching statement, so you're left to take words of wisdom from the interviewees themselves. Many have valid points- especially when it comes the constant bombardment of hideous billboards in cities around the world and the way that their work has been requisitioned and recontextualized by corporate conglomerates - but in the end, a few key ideas end up repeated a bit too often.Regardless, this is solid work that deserves an audience.

Aykroyd played a straight man, a dolt of a rich guy living off Daddy's money, when suddenly his rich uncles play a game with him to see what would happen if he loses it all. And instead they give it all to Eddie Murphy, a poor guy from the 'hood. A good premise, and Murphy was his originally hilarious self. Before he became a bland, unfunny, corporate Hollywood actor in the late 80's and lost the edge that made him so funny.

The beginning is very promising (black and white, 50's-like look with good picture quality; some social commentary about weapons of mass destruction; unexplained and mysterious storyline elements), but everything falls apart when repeated attempts at wackyness eat away large parts of the storyline's consistency.
(jp) wrote: Patent nonsense, and Jerry Lewis skirts the very fine line between funny and annoying. Although he falls squarely into the annoying category more often than not, there are some genuinely funny moments, enough for me to enjoy the overall film, lazy and flimsy though it is. Lots of stock Paramount Western players in this, like Jack Elam and Lee Van Cleef, and... Agnes Moorehead? What the hell.

(ca) wrote: Do you wanna see a very pointless movie which tries too hard filled with vampires, zombies, aliens, and other random BS? If so this is the film for you... However, even though horror comedies are my favourite, this is one of the most forgettable and dull films I've seen in a long time
(mx) wrote: Fast paced little murder thriller enhanced very much by Barbara Stanwyck?s presence and a solid supporting cast. Fast pacing helps, the score is a little much at times. Good photography and screenplay.
