(jp) wrote: This is a touching documentary which no-one thought would make any impact at all. It was filmed in 2009 where a brother and sister wanted to make their disabled brother's dream come true, and they decided to make a little home film of their little adventure. But, this is a big adventure, and it's a touching, moving and heartwarming documentary about meeting your heroes and family ties. Tom Spicer has a rare form of autism called Fragile X Syndrome, in which he has severe learning difficulties, and he lives in a care home in Bristol. However, Tom has one crumb of comfort in his life, and that's that he's a huge fan of Lars Ulrich from Metallica. Tom's sister Kate and his brother William make him a big promise, and they will take him to meet Lars Ulrich in America. So, they fly out to California, and hire out a motor home and follow Metallica on tour in the hope that Tom will get to meet Lars Ulrich, but because of Tom's condition, poor Tom gets cold feet, but Kate and William are determined for the meeting to happen. Films about mental illnesses can come across as mawkish and sentimental, but there's something very uplifting and joyous about this film, and it's a film about the love of family and how far you'd go to meet a hero, no matter what comes in the way. It's well worth a look, and you don't have to be a fan of Metallica either.

It is an interesting concept - that when people have eveything, they must resort to more wicked ways to get thier entertainment - the court at Versailles is a place where in order to succeed, one must take no prisoners in a battle of wit.

(es) wrote: My favorite play. I've seen every version committed to film that I can find and this one surpasses them all. Additionally it's one even my young grand daughter enjoyed and understood. Tennant shines in this production which has been called "the Hamlet of a generation". I loved how he brought out Hamlet's smart-mouth side, yet still delivers even in the darkest scenes.

The acting is horrible and the actors look as if they are wearing found clothing; the picture is extra blurry and cuts in weird places as if they were filming it on scraps of reel tape. All of these quirks make it beautiful in its own way. When examining Condemned to Live it is apparent that Frank Strayer came right off of the success of Vampire Bat (1933) and decided to repackage the movie and put it out again. The movie has no real "Monster" to speak of, in fact the villain (known as "the Fiend" in this picture) is more of a repackaging of a psychotic with vampiristic overtones; Professor Kristen doesn't ever actually drink the blood of his victims but he does gnaw on their necks. The village in the movie is taken right out of "The Bride of Frankenstein" and they even throw in a hunchback to drive home the fact that this is a horror movie. He isn't even needed. The movie is pretty tame and most of the killings are done off screen and didn't hold up my interest very well. The movie is bland and feels like it needs a shot of something to keep it on its toes. I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone, but I wouldn't complain if it fell into a horror movie marathon at a local theater. I am going to slip the movie a 5 out of 10. What good can there be in a hunchback? S!D

(br) wrote: This sci fi classic, is old but did have great visuals and special effects for its time. Yes there is alot of cheesy moments, Yes kids in bug customs, Yes alot of boring scenes and scenes that just dragged on and seemed like they really didn't need to be in the film. There is alot of humor in the movie, sometimes too much of it, It starts out serious and has alot of serious moments but also alot of the movie has humorous moments almost like a comedy. Today it would be considered a sci-fi comedy. I think that if all the boring scenes were edited out of the movie then it would have been a more enjoyable experience. But overall It was enjoyable, and alot of fun.
(br) wrote: I think Dennis Hopper decided to call all of his friends and say "hey let go party, get hammered, and every once a while I'll turn a camera on." There really couldn't be another explaination for this movie. It's a stereotypical plot, Jodi Foster witnesses a murder and spends the rest of the time runnig from the mob. Hopper plays a hitman who falls in love with her. It turns into a poor mans Taxi Driver. The amazing cast includes Joe Pesci, Fred Ward, Vincent Price, John Turturro, Dean Stockwell, and Bob Dylan (in which he has only one scene and it involves a chainsaw). There's some decent scenes and a few humorous one (namely the one with Dylan). If your a fan of any of the above mentioned actors check it out. Other than that, I wouldn't recommend it.
