Anyhoo, it has amazing dance scenes that are to die for! The cast is pure magic and the chemistry really shows! Good job on the director, cast and script. But BOO on the company that "remastered" this!
Keaton B (es) wrote: It's both disgusting and funny, and -- alongside "El Mariachi" -- a testament to low-budget filmmaking done right.Sometimes you wonder how much Peter Jackson could do with $23K, but still make it look like it cost WAY more.For instances, the aliens are piloted through the use of make-up effects and animatronics, and (SPOILERS) a 'Vette explodes by way of a bazooka. Plus, (SPOILERS) a house becomes a rocket ship.

It's just two fucking stupid kids who can't shut the fuck up for once or stop teasing each other thus causing their mother to go insane. They separate from each other to let their mother relax because she has tuberculosis. Heavily overrated on rotten tomatoes. Fuck you guys. This shit is poor. Don't waste your time with this.

Josh B (ca) wrote: Near the occupied midway point of his, over, five decade career, Hitchcock's "The Man Who Knew Too Much" certainly isn't one of his terrifying classics like Vertigo or Psycho; but is a humorous, suspenseful thriller that thrills nonetheless. It's not tightly scripted--in that it frequently feels convoluted even for it's simplistic plot--but it is tightly directed with Hitchcock's touch. Narratively weak, feeling unclear and perplexing at times--but has smart dialogue exchange and a simplistic, satisfying end. The plot, though cloudy at times, is immersive and unique for the thriller genre, even today. The film is strongest when Hitchcock delivers his trademark suspense (i.e. the Royal Albert Hall concert assassination). It's a mystery how Hitchcock can take a scene about an assassination of a man we don't know, or honestly care for, and fill us with anxiety. Featuring an elaborate said concert assassination and a meticulous shootout, when Hitchcock isn't within the constrains of the script, he makes good use of his freedom. Though there are strengths within the script, consisting of the previously said witty dialogue and an unpredictability--once the plot is revealed, you think you can predict exactly where it's going, but it takes a few surprising turns. It is understandable that Hitchcock would feel obligated to go back and remake "The Man Who Knew Too Much" in 1956--it feels very loose and linear--but confusing that Hitchcock actually did go back and remake it himself. The performances are an escape from the small and frequent incompetents. Leslie Banks plays a resilient, humorous Bob Lawrence--always being optimistic in uncomfortable situations and even cracking a joke. Edna Best plays Bob's wife, Jill, who is also adaptive in situations and an independent woman (she even competes in skeet shooting). Peter Lorre is a grounded antagonist, you can see this person going about in the palpable world--he's not necessarily intimidating, but has a deceitful laugh that's in no way villainous. With a convoluted script and unfocused narrative, Hitchcock still finds gaps to shine through--in particular, a meticulously executed, suspenseful orchestra.

Walt Disney had made a landmark of animation to Musical animated feature with no dialogue. How fascinating is that?The musical themes are:Toccata and Fugue in D MinorNutcracker SuiteThe Sorcerer's Apprentice (starring Mickey Mouse)The Rite of SpringThe intermission of Meet the SoundtrackThe Pastoral SymphonyDance of the HoursNight on Bald Mountainand finally Ave MariaThat's all the classical musicals there is. I have only seen the opening number of Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, The Rite of Sping which is scary and the beautiful musical theme Ave Maria. Years ago I've watched The Rite of Spring and when I got older my friend Sam Hudson told me that it is a box office disappointment. I didn't know that it is a box office disappointment when I watch this movie because Sam told me that because of the World War II. Aside from that, this Disney classic is a critical acclaim. The music in this is beautiful just the two Disney classics, it is a achivement of all of us.

Kevin D (ru) wrote: I'm not against low budget films, in fact some of my favourite films were made on little funding (Clerks, Blair Witch Project, Friday the 13th to name a few), and with a small budget Jeremy Gardner funded, wrote, directed and acted in this indie flick about two friends stuck together after the zombie apocalypse.The story has a quick introduction, two buddies on the same beer league baseball team, join together wandering the around in the New England wilderness, trying to avoid zombies, and generally moving around a lot. Mickey and Ben (pitcher and catcher respectively) banter and bicker a lot, and slowly but surely get on each others nerves. Both characters are together, but very separate at the same time and it's a nice dynamic that most of us can relate to.The film progresses nicely and events unfold through a rather predictable story line. Of course you can expect a lot of screen time from the baseball duo, but it's easy to listen to them talk back and forth with some pretty decent and relevant dialogue. The movie never loses its pace, and slowly builds up to a gut wrenching series of events by the end of the film. The story is well crafted, and simplistic in its way. I really enjoyed the soundtrack as well. It lends a lot to the kind of meandering pace of the film and is a smart little plot device as well, as Mickey rarely goes out without his headphones on.It's a technically sound film, with no silly effects, and really is a nice walk through the countryside... with zombies. There are a few scenes that were pretty difficult to watch, but overall it's a well acted movie with a very limited cast.I would recommend surely it, but don't expect a horror fest with bunch of bloody deaths. It's a character film after all, and some might find it a bit boring.2.5/5
Lucia S (br) wrote: A classic film noir film that reparis the duo of Tierney and Andrews post the classic film Laura. While this film doesn't have the same allure of Laura, it does capture the gritty nature of classic film noir flicks. In this case, the mystery wasn't who killed who, but instead, how long until the killer breaks? You get some fascinating character insight for Det. Dixson. I wish that Gary Merrill's villainous boss would have had a bit more screetime and that Tierney's character wouldn't have been so naive, but you can't win them all. In the end, this is a fun movie that carries the additional emotional weight of seeing a man destroy his lifelong dream for the sake of morality.
