Frank Galvin is a down-on-his luck lawyer, reduced to drinking and ambulance chasing. Former associate Mickey Morrissey reminds him of his obligations in a medical malpractice suit that he himself served to Galvin on a silver platter: all parties willing to settle out of court. Blundering his way through the preliminaries, he suddenly realizes that perhaps after all the case should go to court; to punish the guilty, to get a decent settlement for his clients, and to restore his standing as a lawyer.

(ca) wrote: Great documentary on one of the greatest sports teams of all time - the West Indies cricket team of the mid-70s to mid-80s. More than just a sports movie, it highlights the social and political impact of the West Indies' rise to the top and includes interviews with social commentators, including reggae stars like Bunny Wailer. Insightful interviews with many of the players, especially Viv Richards, Clive Lloyd, Michael Holding, Andy Roberts, Colin Croft and Gordon Greenidge.On the negative side, while concentrating on the social and political aspects, some of the cricket details are missed. Some key moments are missed, e.g. the home test against India after which Clive Lloyd decided to go with four pace bowlers, the 75 and 79 World Cups. A bit more coverage of the individual and team feats would also have been great. (This said, one could not ever have too much cricket in a movie - if this was 5 hours long because of all the cricket it showed, I would probably still say it doesn't have enough cricket!). Overall, a very stirring story, made more poignant by the depths to which West Indies cricket have sunk now. This movie should be compulsory viewing in the West Indies, and by every member of the WI cricket team. The current team clearly have no inkling of their rich heritage, and how they are letting that down.

(kr) wrote: it was very good actually!!! I liked how they started their love just like any teenager-love that you don't think much of, that ended up becoming something more serious, I liked it how the problems made them get irritated like it happens in real life and how it made them make mistakes, big mistakes too that drove them apart from each other. It reminded me actually little bit of myself, how small irritating things people do make me annoyed and until the end annoyed enough to let me make mistakes that drive people away from me. And also how they had to forgive each other to move on and be happy. I felt that he may had forgiven her because he needed her, he loved her, more that for her sake.

(de) wrote: Mildly entertaining. Effects were good for its time and the characters had some meaning to the viewer but over-all lacks good battle scenes and good story (It could've been much more developed). More on its way of becoming a family comedy then a decent fantasy movie.
(gb) wrote: Fuckin' 20 years ago this bad ass violent movie written by Quentin Tarantino came out and this is definitely a must see and is in the "violent" cool movies of all time category. The drugs, the sex, the acting, the actors, the soundtrack and even the year 1993 made this movie bad ass and also it's in my TOP 30 of all-time favorite flicks. I can see this over and over and over and over and over......
(br) wrote: Not near as bad as its reputation -- 'Jersey Girl' is a fair, middle-of-the-road dramedy overall -- the film is too earnest for its own good maybe, and tries too hard to make you like it. Sort of like the funny fat kid you knew in school, AKA writer/director Kevin Smith.
(fr) wrote: This obscure 80's horror movie has some of the strangest and most unexpected death scenes this side of river Styx. If you combine that with all of the shenanigans of a puppet wielding immature butt head you have yourself a pretty fun movie to watch. Felix Ward plays Kreon, some ancient low budget F. Murray Abraham rip off dude. His house is full of haunted horrors and like any crazy un-dead madman he's in it for the sporting glee of shooting fish in a barrel. This movie tries to fill out all of the stereotypes, it even features kids playing with an Ouija board. From there it leads us Scooby Doo style from room to "spooky" room. I honestly don't know if I like this movie. It's REALLY immature but sort of charming. I just don't know if I can put my stamp of approval on any movie that features a farting zombie horde scene. Basically this is the movie every 12 year old dude would make. That said there is an undeniable charm to the care given to the stop motion effects, the creatures, and to the blatant whimsy in the dialog. I'm conflicted.The part of me that likes retarded non-sense loved it. The part of me that likes to actually pick things apart thought it was ... well ... retarded. I guess it's sort of like biting into something and immediately liking it. Then just when you're about to say how much you like it the aftertaste kicks in and you're not sure anymore. One strange fact about the cast of this movie is that there is some sort of cosmic spillage into the cast of Street Trash. It's inexplicable and unexplainable. Clearly, B movie rejects get around. This movie literally has NOBODY in it that you've ever heard of before. Which is kind of great. It's really hard to do too. An entire movie full of actors who never went on to do anything? That is the sort of thing that is usually reserved for school projects, not feature length films.What did I learn from watching Spookies?1. The title blows.2. At all times you must "Watch the God Damn upholstery!"3. Being chased by zombies is scarier when someone plays Sega Genesis music in the background.4. When questioning someone's ability to talk to the dead don't use this argument. "The dead? But .. they're dead."5. If at first you don't succeed, hit it with a chair.6. When you want to leave a room all you have to do is dive right through the fucking door!7. The grim reaper is highly volatile and will explode into a ball of fire if he falls more than 10 feet.8. Asian people can secretly be giant meat spiders.9. Sometimes zombies disguise themselves as frat boys with strategically placed station wagons.10. Douche-bags never survive haunted houses.Should you watch this movie? Sure, why the hell not. Just don't expect your educated friends to respect you're decision to do so. The reason I'd recommend watching this movie is for the excellent zombie evasion scene at the end of the movie. It's actually very well done.

(ag) wrote: An indictment of Hollywood, a subversion of the romanticism associated with Hollywood, and the story of the plight of an aging writer who desires to remain true to himself and control his demons. Nicholas Ray's film is truly unlike most noirs I have ever seen. It features one of Bogart's best performances, and one of the best endings I could have imagined for a film such as this.

Part of (in my opinion) Walter Matthau's best run of films and Joe Don Baker is sharp as the mob's hired gun. Director Siegel calls back many who appeared in DIRTY HARRY.
