Joyce Chandler (Trish Goff), a young divorced woman and recovering alcoholic, moves into a Manhattan apartment that seems a bit too secluded to be true. It is: Upstairs lives Charlotte Bancroft (Ally Sheedy), a woman with a wall of obliviousness who can turn even an 'apology' into a guilt trip, Charlotte persists in making Joyce's nighttime hours a living hell. As the torture continues, Joyce starts to lose her grip on her job, her health and her sanity. It's a heck of a price to pay for having your own place.

(us) wrote: "I, Madman" or "Hardcover" as it is known as in Europe is a good, but sadly forgotten 80's type horror movie. Virginia (Jenny Wright) loves reading horror novels and comes across one titled 'I, Madman'. In the book a insane doctor named Malcolm Brand (Randall William Cook) kills people and take their body parts to later attach them to himself in order to look pretty for a girl he likes. While reading, Virginia discovers that the book is a non-fiction biography and that a series of murders has happened in her city are connected to the book. "I, Madman" has a good story and creepy atmosphere and is definitely worth checking out for horror fans. If there is a horror movie that could use a good remake it's this one, I'm positive that it can be done better.

It takes place in New York City ca. the mid-80s, and there is nothing about it I don't relate to from the bottom of my heart (I've been that wrongheaded girl too.) Absolutely charming. And how about those songs by The Roches! It'll steal your heart. I wish I could meet a Sam the pickle man!
(ru) wrote: This is one of Werner Herzog's best films. Only partially based on fact, it nevertheless conjures a narrative force that feels completely authentic. Set in a stark Australian outback that is yet beautiful to behold, he paints a tale of an Anglo mining corporation exploiting the Aborigines' land in search of uranium. Yeah. Sounds like the basis for Hollywood's average, hackneyed, bleeding-heart political manifesto but everything Herzog does with his set-up works against that grain. The likable geologist/worker ant (if you'll pardon the expression) for the corporation, played by Bruce Spence, is the nominal protagonist and not unsympathetic to the Aborigines. He gets one early scene on the telephone with a woman he's obviously interested in, and maybe we see her later in a courtroom sequence. I wasn?t sure. No development there! Herzog had other things on his mind, and tawdry romance wasn't one of them. Instead we get spellbinding moments like Spence?s encounter with another Caucasian who expounds on the green ants that are the object of the natives? recalcitrance against the miners. The scientific details may or may not be malarkey, but damn it all if it?s not fascinating. Even the long courtroom scene, where Herzog?s typically unconventional blocking avoids the stagnant clichs of so many such scenes in previous films, keeps our interest despite a predictable outcome. Then there?s the matter of an airplane that catches the fancy of one of the Aboriginals, and we think we?re in for another case of nativist sabotage as in Herzog?s previous masterpiece, ?Fitzcarraldo?, but not quite. Or how about the old lady who sits beneath a parasol outside one of the mines, a can of dog food at her feet, waiting for her cherished pet who went missing? And in one scene, Spence?s character kneels before her and describes to her a dream of his that has to be heard to be believed. Or a moment when the whites corral a couple of those ?backwards? natives into a modern-day elevator, and ? Oops, they might be there for a while. When this scene takes place the first time it gets a laugh. When it is reprised a few moments later it cuts even deeper and becomes just plain sad. And then there are the stock images of tornadoes tearing through Oklahoma. They seem to have absolutely nothing to do with the main action in Australia, and yet the familiar, wispy shapes of those dust clouds after each detonation of the mining company?s explosives on the Aborigines? land got me to thinking ? Suffice. There was nothing too obvious or drawn-out about this picture. It kept me in a state of perpetual wonder and engaged right up to its closing shot. Wholeheartedly recommended to those in search of something different. (And if you?re not looking for something different ? WHY THE HELL AREN?T YOU?)

(au) wrote: Disney's early-20th century fantasy is as charming and whimsical as it is emotionally affecting. The dreamlike environment and catchy songs transport the audience to a unique world in which anything can happen. It's a bright, colorful yarn, but it also has it's fair share of heartfelt moments that depict the more morose side of growing up.
(ru) wrote: Gold rush San Francisco as a crude capitalist hell (but with Hawksian charm, and a remarkable ending). Of course, while journalism, poetry, and love may counteract crudity (though this is less and less evident), they can't stop capitalism (which, financing crudity, guarantees its return/advance).

(au) wrote: So for the 10th (yes, X means 10 in this case) Jason film, they take the story to the future where a team uncovers Jason's body and go figure, he wakes up and starts killing people. The script isn't that great and a few of the gags are so full of camp you almost choke on it (android girl scene). Where other Jason films have been suspenseful and kept to their successful roots of chopping up kids in a camp, this one is pretty far reaching...... and bad.
(mx) wrote: What I got to say about "The Starving Games" is an insulting in every meaning of the word, that's how bad this movie is. "It's not funny at all.. It's horrendous." The performances by the whole cast is awful. The directing and screenplay by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer is unbelievable. The cinematography is okay but could have been much better. Finally, the score and effects are not good at all. "I have to report that "The Starving Games" is not worth watch at all."
(ag) wrote: Even if it does have some questionable ideas and moments, there is enough in here to make this a watchable entry in Craven's cannon......it's not the best of it's genre and contains too many reminders of other films, so this one is mainly there for the more hardcore fans of this type....
