Miranda Z (nl) wrote: Okay, call me a softy or someone who's overwhelmed by raging teenage hormones, but although this movie is full of clichs, an overly manipulative (and recycled!) soundtrack, what clinches the deal for me are the cast. Their acting is all too real and yet just detached enough for you to long for a life like the one that's portrayed in the movie. It also helps that I recognise quite a few of the actors and adore them as well. While it was much too predictable and honestly cringe-worthy at times, it's one of Disney's cutest (albeit cheesy) real-life rom-coms yet.

Jenna I (ru) wrote: A great cautionary tale for what can go wrong on a film set, and all at once. Not a great documentary unfortunately, it lacks character and it lacks real insight into its main players. But, boy, what a string of bad luck. You definitely feel for Gilliam. They should update this, honestly, as this story has only gotten longer and longer...

Sandy S (fr) wrote: Simplicity of the story kept me riveted. Quite a contrast to my earlier intense experience with Head-On. Little stories woven into it are a reminder even in our compact n steel world of the lil pleasures, trivial as they may seem. Guileless n animated the script just chilled me out. Charming story. Familiar strains of optimism as it wrapped up to the inevitable wedding song.


Clark W (us) wrote: I don't know why this film is seen in such a negative light. I can see why it isn't considered one of many peoples "favorite" movies. And I'll admit that there are a couple of scenes I didn't enjoy myself. I loved the original, and I love this guilty pleasure.

Rena D (nl) wrote: $25,000 budget by a small independent film production company in Sacramento, California. No blood, guts, violence, zombies or vampires, just a simple sweet story with lots of good talent. Congrats to the people who dared to make a movie like this instead of one with blood and zombies.

Ryan C (us) wrote: It's an oddball mixture of crime, kidnapping and vampires that relies on Clooney and Keitel to keep things entertaining and of course there's naked strippers that turn into that's good enough, right?

Brandon J (ag) wrote: Funny comedy, with great loveable characters. This film truly is a one of a kind.

Allan C (ca) wrote: Directed by Lau Kar Leung and featuring the Venom Mob, this one is probably one of the groups best. Gordon Liu plays a prince who hires a thief, Dirty Ho, to protect him from assassins. The film has a fair amount of comedy that actually works and the film also did not recycle to usual you-killed-my-master-and-now-I'll-seek-revenge storyline. When you include those factors and the typically excellent fight choreography by the Venom Mob, that makes this one of their better films.

Blake P (br) wrote: 1957 Elvis is perhaps the best Elvis. It's twenty years away from the Fat Vegas years that ended with his tragic death, ten from his failed marriage to "Naked Gun" staple Priscilla, one after his film debut, "Love Me Tender". It shows an Elvis not yet let down by what life had to offer, an Elvis excited by his success and willing to smolder for the camera so long as it pleased his adoring fans. "Jailhouse Rock", his third film and his first for Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer, is a black-and-white musical drama that hardly paints its lead star as a saint. The majority of Elvis' movies altered their then-controversial star into an ersatz Southern gentleman, a good guy so incapable of doing any wrong that all we could do is sit back, appreciate his presence, and savor his musical abilities. "Jailhouse Rock" all but shifts every preconceived notion regarding the star's cinematic persona - here, he is a rough-and-tumble punk with a mean streak and a short attention span when it comes to women. It's easier not to root for him here than it was in "Viva Las Vegas", and that's a problem when a film is so in love with its protagonist that every single character seems to wait on them hand and foot. Missing from "Jailhouse Rock" is the sense of fun his other films carried on their shoulders; his best, 1964's "Viva Las Vegas", was so irresistibly colorful and spry it was impossible not to want to take a vacation in Elvis' Vegas. And even his worst moments (most of his films were bad, so it's best not to talk about them), were frothy, delectable pieces of escapist fluff that turned our frown upside down as they sneakily took George Washingtons out of our wallets. Since "Jailhouse Rock" plays it straight, with its borderline soap operatic drama, we find ourselves less chirpy and more down in dumps, wondering how our beloved King of Rock 'N' Roll can really be a youth capable of manslaughter, how he can be capable of beating up every man who does him wrong, how he can ignore Judy Tyler as she gives him her love and a record deal. I would dramatically cry if I cared more; but a movie as clichd and hard-bitten as this one doesn't allow such emotions to pour out. Elvis never had much talent as an actor, unlike Frank Sinatra, the previous generation's go-to musical sex fiend, so most of his projects centered on his strengths - and as an actor, those said strengths were limited. He only seemed to shine with a mic in hand or when an Ann-Margret wannabe fell into his arms without much hesitation. Since "Jailhouse Rock" was only his third movie, Elvis' inexperience in the film industry is more clear than it should be; he's so stiff in his non-musical scenes that one can only wish there was a way to give talented people more of a personality when it came to selling themselves onscreen. But the musical sequences, as few and far between as they are, burn in the memory. We've all seen the number the film has become famous for, and, in the context of the movie, it harnesses nostalgic power unseen by his other films. I was entertained by "Jailhouse Rock", but, in the end, it pays more attention to its star than the audience interested in its star. It's too bad the star isn't much of an actor. Then we'd have something.

James T (au) wrote: Very little plot but a passable 50's sci-fi movie all the same. The fx is ok but the acting is under par. I love 50s sci-fi movies so I can sit through this and kinda enjoy it. For most people though this movie is just utter crap and it's well worth it's place on MST3K.
