The Dark Backward
A man pursues stand-up comedy encouraged by his fellow garbage man. Though his friend, who accompanies him on accordion, continues to tell him how great he is, he actually stinks.

(br) wrote: a better story then the previous sequel. a bit more horror and dementedness to it and more of the famous dude throughout. for a straight to dvd movie it wasn't that bad. I love watching b horror and can put up with a lot if the movies done right.

(kr) wrote: Wong Jing steps up to the director's chair for the third installment of the series, and suddenly there's a penis-joke in every frame. Other popular Wong gimmicks featured are various bodily fluids, memory loss and mistaken identities. In short, Fight Back To School 3 is a head on-assault that makes Gordon Chan's previous entries seem like the elegies of Rainer Maria Rilke in comparison. Regular Chow-sidekick Ng Man Tat is also sorely missed, as well as the looseness that he brought into the duo's relationship. Anita Mui makes up for Ng's absence by being simply gorgeous and quite funny too.
(ca) wrote: Early 80's low budget horror schlock about a man who carries his deformed Siamese twin around in a basket, plotting revenge against the doctors who separated them against their will.It's all very ridiculous, but since it's impossible to take this film seriously, it's all quite fun, despite having some quite atrocious special effects. Nevertheless, it's a good example of splatter movies of the 1980's.Whether it warranted two sequels is another matter...
(us) wrote: Delightful biopic that not only represents the best work of all involved, but one of the best movies about film making ever made. Johnny Depp is wonderful in the title role, capturing Wood's sweet & enthusiastic nature, that makes him infectious even when doing crazy stuff, whether it be cross-dressing or breaking into a studio at night. He is matched perfectly by Martin Landau, he transforms into Bella Lugosi, capturing by the tragic nature of the movie star in his twilight years but also the chilling charisma that made him a star. Behind the camera, Burton mimics the style of Ed Wood's film perfectly, making his most original & stylish film while showing the love that goes into movie making. This film is also notable for being one of the first to tackle transgender issues & the stereotypes surrounding them (as Wood must repeatedly say, he's not gay, he's a cross-dresser). He doesn't sugarcoat his subjects though, whether it be Wood's lack of talent as a film-maker (the man made some awful movies) to Lugosi's morphine addiction. Overall, probably Burton's best film to date along with being a love letter to the art of making films even when they are pretty bad.
