(ru) wrote: On his not quite standing room book signing tour, Hall Baltimore(Val Kilmer) comes across a town that is so small that it does not have a bookstore but does have a giant clock with seven faces. So, while signing books in a hardware store, he encounters an actual fan, Sheriff Bobby LaGrange(Bruce Dern) who shows him the latest body in the morgue. But what Hall is even more interested in is a drink, being drawn to a bar where Edgar Allan Poe(Ben Chaplin) used to hang out.To be honest, "Twixt" does not really work as horror, mystery or personal filmmaking, as Francis Ford Coppola takes a step back artistically in his late period. But that's not to say there is nothing of interest here, as there is just enough eccentricity and weirdness to at least merit a look.

(mx) wrote: Neither of the back-to-back made versions of The Exorcist prequel script by Blatty are even slightly impressive or memorable. The strange tale of a film so unmarketable it was remade instead of released (and when the new version "Exorcist: The Beginning" failed they released this version).While Heretic, the sequel movie, was an arty mess these two movies are utterly unremarkable and entirely forgettable. No standout sequences or even moments. No nods or connections to the classic movie to curry favour, just one long pile of forgettable beige.
(es) wrote: I would have to say its a 'cute' movie. The cultural aspects brought into play, the concepts of how far we will go for ourselves and family members. It was an interesting movie compared to others I have seen. Plus, its the first movie that just doesn't smack the whole 'gay' thing in your face.

(ca) wrote: Although based on a true "story", it has now been admitted that the kid made it up. However, the films simple & cute story, and beautiful Midwest cinematography are hard to resist. It's a well crafted family-friendly story - it just doesn't have enough to keep your interest peaked. Rating: 6.5 / 10
(jp) wrote: Your think just got into a box of popcorn? In 1959 Baltimore, a group of friends are starting to grow apart as they get married, go to school, have children, etc. They felt they could always regroup at the local diner for a meal and great conversation; however, their problems are getting too big for one another and they start having to deal with them on their own. As they begin growing apart how long will they be able to rely on their diner to hold them together? "Where'd you get this attitude?" "I borrowed it. I have to have it back by midnight." Barry Levinson, director of Rain Man, The Natural, Toys, Bugsy, Tin Men, Good Morning Vietnam, Disclosure, Sleepers, Wag the Dog, and Sphere, delivers Diner. The storyline for this picture delivers a solid coming of age plot with fascinating characters and solid character develop and a fairly entertaining script. The cast is wonderful and includes Mickey Rourke, Steve Guttenberg, Kevin Bacon, Tim Daly, Ellen Barkin, and Paul Reiser. "Can I go to the bathroom?" "No." I am a huge fan of Mickey Rourke and diners so I was excited to see this gem. The acting was excellent and I loved the evolution of the characters. The ending was a bit clich and abrupt but the overall film was entertaining. This movie is definitely worth watching once but I wouldn't add it to your DVD collection. "It was a pecker touching without intention." Grade: B-
