Nanny McPhee is a witch with superpowers that could ensure worldwide peace but her assignment given to her is the raising of a group of kids living with a single mother on a farm. The brother of the mother is the villain, Clouseau-type. Emma (McPhee) looks like these stop-motion animated english characters, you know, which is rather funny. That was a good time with all acting well, good special effects and funny and sillyness spread all over. The flying pigs and car were over the top but, what the heck, super powers are so common nowaday. I think a "Nanny McPhee brings world peace" could be quite the hilarious film. She has the power. Superman, Captain America, etc. has got nothing on her.

Kyle M (es) wrote: It's what you'd expect from a Tim Burton film with his direction showing its warm quirkiness but charmingly genuine masterpiece of stop-motion animation goodness with his frequent collaborations of Danny Elfman composing the soul and the cast performing it well, especially Johnny Depp, Helena Botham Carter, and Emily Watson. (B+)(Full review coming soon - with better wording probably)
Andrew D (br) wrote: I was drawn to the film Teaching Mrs. Tingle for one main reason. It was the directorial debut of famed 90s screenwriter Kevin Williamson who is known for writing the scripts for the first two Scream movies (as well as the fourth), I Know What You Did Last Summer, and the severely underrated sci-fi film The Faculty. In Teaching Mrs. Tingle, Williamson tells a tale of a girl named Leigh-Ann who tries her hardest to become the valedictorian of her graduating class in order to gain a scholarship and go to college. However, there's one thing standing in her way. Her History teacher Mrs. Tingle hates her guts. After Leigh-Ann gets in a misunderstanding with Mrs. Tingle about whether she was cheating or not, her and her two friends (Luke and Jo) try to convince her that it was a mistake. One thing leads to another and they're holding her captive until they can get her to relieve Leigh-Ann of the wild allogations. This plot may seem cool for anyone who's had a crummy teacher in their years in high school, but this film is executed pretty badly. For one thing, Williamson is best known for his meta-scripts that pay homage to the genre of the film that he's writing for (i.e. He references horror films and horror rules in Scream). Since this film is more of a dramedy, he can't really do anything of that nature. Sure, he throws in a few references to films like The Exorcist, but they just don't work. Also not working for the script is that it doesn't know what film it wants to be. At first it starts out like Dawson's Creek with teenage drama and angst, but later goes into a comedic territory. Plus, it sometimes hits a wanna-be thriller genre. If I had to say anything good about this film, it would be for Helen Mirren for her excellent portrayal of Mrs. Tingle. She's able to make the character an unbelievable bitch and she's fun to watch everytime she opens her mouth. Other than that, Teaching Mrs. Tingle is just a failed attempt by a great screenwriter. Hopefully, he'll stick to making meta-scripts next time since that's what he's really talented at.

Joshua R (mx) wrote: One of the best 10 best films of the 1990's. Oliver Stone's powerful film shows us what a true artist is capable of. Today we have overrated directors such as Christopher Nolan, James Cameron and Quentin Tarantino. Not that they aren't good filmmakers (Cameron & Nolan I mean) it's just that when you walk out of one of their films you have essentially gained nothing and get the same old thing. Not so with films by Oliver Stone and Natural Born Killers is a prime example. He stirs up emotion and controversy like no other director except for say...Michael Moore, just on a completely different level. Natural Born Killers is what satire is all about, it's a cinematic masterpiece unlike anything you have ever seen. A+++
Darren H (gb) wrote: With Steven Spielberg in the producing chair it should come as no real susprise that 1985s YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES as a definite Indiana Jones influence to it - most specifically Spielberg's most recent entry (at that time) into the popular frnachise INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM. Nowhere is this more evident than in the ancient hidden temple setting where our young heroes uncover much of the villains evil plot. For a Sherlockian the movie is a curious anomaly, but incredibly entertaining. We know from the books of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle that Dr. Watson met Sherlock Holmes when both were in adulthood, yet this movie poses the irresistible `what-if' they had met earlier when both were in boarding school. As one would expect with a movie from Spielberg's Amblin company, this movie is very colorful and filed with dazzling special effects - courtesy of Industrial Light and Magic. The plot essentially takes a back seat to the fun of spotting Holmesian references, watching his already developing deductive intellect solving puzzles and rooting for a bittersweet, blossoming romance between Holmes (played by Nicholas Rowe of LA FEMME MUSKETEER) and Elizabeth (Sophie Ward). For what it's worth the central plot involves a poisoned darts, hallucinations, DaVinci inventions, a strange Egyptian religious cult and a mysterious secret several distinguished men have kept buried for years. It all makes for some very Spielbergesque style adventure entertainment that director Barry (RAIN MAN) Levinson manages to weave into an enjoyable and intriguing movie. Sherlockian purists will likely find this premise hard to swallow, but as a diehard fan of the Great Detective, I for one had a great time with this movie. Unquestionably the chracterization of Watson is influenced more by the Rathbone-Bruce movies of the 1930s and 1940s than Conan Doyles novels with this movie featuring Alan Cox in the part of the future doctor, a role he handles well with warmth and good humor. Also of note in this movie is some wonderful period costumes and impressive sets. With doses of mystery, fantasy, intrigue and adventure this movie is easy to recommend, not only for Sherlockians but for those of us who simply enjoy good, solid, fun movies.

And, if ever there was a concept for a movie that sounds like it would be odd, dull and strange -- Yentl is it. But, in Streisand's hands, the film unfolds as a uniquely, artistically and charming new take on what a film musical can be. Nothing about this movie should work, but everything about it does.
