(fr) wrote: Wow what a movie. Mixing myth, hard reality, and comedy, and doing it in an inspiring way. I'm surprised there is no activity here reviewing this movie, but c'est la vie, non? The central characters are richly developed and the story compelling. The setting may be representative but could be anywhere at anytime. Look for the self-referential joke about two-thirds the way through. Very funny and heartwarming. NB What Edgar Chaput does not seem to understand, in his insistence that myth somehow match reality more closely is that: this is a myth, with outrageous elements bent by time and retelling. I think those elements are delightful and speak to the grandiose imaginations of the writer and presumably the originators of the myth who are personified by the garage owner character who announces the checker match in the style of a title fight with such flamboyance.
(ru) wrote: Arguably the best in the franchise, though that's not saying much, this fourth installment in the franchise shows a little more interest in its plot and characters. However, the characters it tries to focus on are more lifeless than the zombies in the film. Also, most of the plot is pretty pointless or stretched. Lastly, it still goes, go here, fight zombies, go there, fight zombies.
(au) wrote: Nobody loves Liam Neeson more than I do, but he was just too old for this role, unless they had someone much older playing his father. Lithgow is only 6 years older, but actually looks younger than Neeson here. However, the film is really worthwhile if for no other reason than to highlight general ignorance, prejudice, and hypocrisy when it comes to discussion of human sexual behavior, not only in the time period of Kinsey and the Red Scare, but also today.

(us) wrote: Run-of-the-mill slasher movie but I thought it was executed just fine. There's some self-aware satire running through this plot just like Scream and Urban Legend. Those were a little better, but there's something about this that I have a soft spot for. Jay Mohr and Brittany Murphy and Michael Biehn mainly.
(br) wrote: Its not a good movie at all, but what makes it good is that its trying to be serious and the whole movie is just god awful. Good for a laugh if your drunk!
(br) wrote: Rattle & Hum is not just a concert documentary, it's an eloquent cry for change. Filmed mostly in black and white during their 1987 "Joshua Tree" tour, it chronicles the band at the end of the 80s, just before their foray into electronic music and the irony of ZooTV. Filled with emotional performances and containing a duet with blues legend B.B. King, this film captures U2 at the tail of their 80s era and at the cusp of a new beginning. Non-fans will probably yawn at this, but music lovers and U2 fans alike will be highly entertained.

(jp) wrote: Though John Huston is a legend in the world of directing, surprisingly this film in his list of projects tends to be overlooked; I hadn't even heard about it until I saw it listed in a textbook from one of my "Film as Art" classes in college. Despite the fact that it may not be as famed as Huston's other films like "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" or "The African Queen", the influence of this film cannot be underestimated. When I saw this film, I saw echoes of both "The Wrestler" and "Barfly", and even "Raging Bull" likely had some influence drawn from it. And not just in the fact that it is a boxing picture; it is one of the earlier films I've seen that really depicted down and out on-the-skids people trying to reach for a shot at redemption all the while having to inhabit the shady world they had plunged to. Stacy Keach is highly likeable in this film as the washed up boxer, and it was fun to see a young Jeff Bridges as the boxer he attempts to train. Keach isn't as much of a train wreck as some of the later films of this ilk, and in a way he is even more tragic; his character seems like a decent person who fell into rough times simply to cope and let his talent go to waste as a result, rather than someone who selfishly took in excesses to alienate himself. Granted he does borrow money here and there without ever paying back, but theres almost a stronger since of innocence to this character's failures than other movies. Even the way Huston shoots Keach, with numerous upward closeup shots, denotes that this man was at one point a legend and theres still traces of that greatness latently there. The boxing scenes aren't as impressively shot as later films, but still decent for the time. But the boxing is really not as important to this films as it is in other boxing films. This is less a sports movie and more an examination of a hard-living subculture and the efforts some people will have to try to pull themselves out,all the while knowing a part of them will always remain there.
(us) wrote: An almost neurotic amalgamation of styles and themes pervade through this film that fails to be completely understood and experienced with one viewing.
(mx) wrote: If you only know Robert Mitchum from his villainous roles (Cape Fear, Night of the Hunter, etc.) then this one is a must-see.
(au) wrote: This reminded me of Rashomon in so much as there are strange things dropped into the middle of a perfectly normal story. At times the feel of the film got a little bit pantomime but the story is interesting and I wonder how the message was intended, to surpress dreamers or to reinforce family duties in the face of temptation.
(ag) wrote: Intriguing, but flawed, Bogart-Bacall murder-drama.A convicted murderer, Vincent Parry (played by Humphrey Bogart), breaks out of prison. He had been wrongfully convicted of the murder of his wife. Along the way he is helped by young woman, Irene Jansen (played by Lauren Bacall) who is convinced of his innocence. Soon he has to make a decision between leaving the city or staying around to find out who the real murderer is. And his troubles are just beginning...Intriguing drama. From the word go, when all we see of Bogart's character is shadows or first-person views (why becomes apparent after a while), there is an air of mystery and suspense. Not perfect though. The plot is not watertight. The chance meeting that sets up everything is just so implausible. Many other plot developments, including the climactic scene, are implausible and/or contrived.Can't fault the acting though. Bogart and Bacall are great (as expected) and the supporting cast give solid performances.
