(de) wrote: I'm not a big Donald Rumsfeld fan but if the purpose of this lengthy interview / documentary was to cast him in a very negative light (as this director was), it failed. Instead, I came away entertained and overall impressed by Rumsfeld's leadership and life of civil service.

(it) wrote: A simple, but poignant film about love and music, "Once" is intimately directed by John Carney and features an emotional soundtrack written and performed by Glen Hansard, which sets a reserved yet passionate tone I've only seen elsewhere in Linklater's "Before" trilogy. 5/5

(it) wrote: A horror movie about sheep. Sheep?!?! A lot of gore but very little scare. Not sure if the film knows what genre it's trying to be as it's an awkward mix between horror and comedy which doesn't quite work. Entertaining though if you want a laugh. The "lighting of the sheep's fart" goes down as one of the worst horror movie climaxes ever, and in my view was a lazy way to conclude the film as it meant the zombie sheep infestation could be wiped out in one go.

(br) wrote: Stranded in the 20th century, time-traveler Jack Deth (Thomerson) has made a new life for himself and married a lovely, strongwiled woman named Lena (Hunt)... which will some day make Jack his own great- great- great-grandfather. His new peaceful life is thrown into chaos when another time traveler returns to the past, hunting a villain from the future who is using an environmental action group as a front for creating deadly, zombie-like supersoldiers known as Trancers. This time traveler happens to be Jack's wife from the future (Ward), who had been dead for several years when he was sent into the past. The main thrust of "Trancers II" is a fairly run-of-the-mill low-budget action film with a few sci-fi trappings that sees Jack Deth fighting and ultimately defeating a hoard of zombie-fied bad guys led by Dr. Wardo, another time traveler from Jack's original time period. It's not a bad story, but it's a somewhat predictable retread of the story from the first movie. The film, however, is very interesting if you like time travel adventures, because of the tangled histories of two characters--they are present at the same point 300 years in their past, but one is seven years ahead of the other in their personal timelines and he knows the other characters future. He knows that she is actually already dead and that when she goes home, she will be murdered by trancer cultists. This wrinkle adds much to the film and makes the akward situation Jack is in of having to deal with two different wives--one of whom he can't tell that he remarried because he's actually a widower--a very interesting one. Jack's marital problems are played mostly for laughs in the film, but the details that brought it about are both fascinating and tragic. The film is further helped by decent acting all around,even if the dialogue they actors are delivering could have used some more work. Poor Megan Ward in particular delivers from pretty awful lines. The final battle also lacks a bit of punch, and Jack seems a little too eager to gun people down. If killing the wrong person changes the future, shouldn't he be more careful about who he kills? It's one thing for him to kill Trancers--they're already dead--but what about the security guards he shoots? Dr. Wardo's assistants? The body Dr. Wardo's spirit was inhabiting? He kills all these peoples, and, based on the rules of time travel the film set up, he probablyl did all sorts of damage to the time line. Despite some sloppy scripting, the film is still interesting and worthwhile. Its social satire has even held up well over time and perhaps even gained more of an edge. The main villain is very Al Gore lie, and his whole organization is very reminicent of the face the modern ecological movement presents to the world. (It may be a little cult-like. If you've ever been annoyed by the hyperbolic idiocy that issues forth from the mouth of "leading environmentalists" or hypocrites like Al Gore, then Green World and its agents should amuse you.

(gb) wrote: "Off Limits" was a very entertaining, suspenseful, and all around fun action packed mystery. This movie truly kept me on the edge of my seat, and both Willem Dafoe and Gregory Hines were great in this movie. Basically Dafoe and Hines play Army police officers during the Vietnam War in Saigon. A murder of a prostitute takes place, and the two cops find out that it's related to similar murders at different times, and the person who killed these women is high-ranking. So the whole film is like "catch the bad guy" and in this film it works very well. It was just really fun to watch these two actors try to solve the mystery. Some scenes are a little ridiculous in the drama, for instance some co-stars might have really atrocious acting skills, but other than that everything was alright in the acting department. Basically what I'm saying is, that Dafoe and Hines were great, but it was a tossup for the rest of the cast. I really liked the action in this film. A lot of the car chases and what have you, are filmed extremely well. The camera is placed perfectly in a lot of these scenes, making it easy for me to stay attentive, and have a lot of fun with it at the same time. This mixed in with some good dialogue from Dafoe and Hines (not the ridiculous lines by the rest of the cast..) made the movie very entertaining for me. So all in all, "Off Limits" was a pretty good movie. There were a couple of ridiculous moments, and some really cheesy moments, but overall the film kept me entertained, and I had a fun time with the chemistry of the characters.

(it) wrote: German Max Ophuls directed this biting love story with such dazzling grace that one nearly forgets the picture's dark undertones. It's a shattering portrayal of a marriage that disintegrates amid the trappings of high society. Terrific performances and amazing camerawork: the tracking shots simply amaze.
