(ca) wrote: This film has endured in my psyche more perhaps than any other film I have ever seen. It is a wonderful wake-up call to humans to get their act together quickly or suffer the unthinkable consequences of runaway climate change, also know as 'the Venus Syndrome'. Far more important than even Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth, which started to wake us up. I am only saddened that this movie did not get the play it deserved, perhaps due to missteps in its distribution.

The local girls who would be Hula Dancers have to overcome diversity and stigma, etc. It's basically like Flashdance only takes place in a Coal town, not a Steel town, and there's Hula dancing instead of Stripping. Also, there's no Jennifer Beals, but it was still good.

(us) wrote: Not the same without Christopher Walken and not as good as the original trilogy. But worth watching if you are a true fan of the Prophecy. I just love the way that Lucifer himself is the good guy... well... sort of. LoL!
(jp) wrote: Well let's say it as it is...timeline is a pretty bad film. The reconstitution of middle age France is quite poorly conceived, extras and background action lacking any real depth or even energy. everyone seem very slow to react and seems to wait for the first AD to shout action background. The main cast isn't better, most actors being very dull and saying their lines with very little convictions. Paul Walker is so out of place in this film, any second I expected him to tell his girlfriend...hey babe how about we go for a ride... The storyline could have been interesting but here it's clich and very predictable. Richard Donner is a good director but obviously the epic tales aren't his niche.

(ru) wrote: Blacula was a big success and so it was a no brainer that A.I.P. rushed into production with a follow up that was released less then a year later. Sequel tries to up the ante by adding the legendary Pam Grier to the cast but, is a weaker effort do to a somewhat lighter touch by director Bob Kelijan and a weaker script by writers Maurice Jules, Raymond Koenig and Joan Torres (Torres and Koenig wrote the original). Grier plays Lisa, a voodoo priestess on whom a rival seaks vengence by resurrecting the vampire Mamuwalde. But, Mamuwalde has his own ideas as he sees Grier's Lisa as a way to finally lift his curse and end his eternal torment. But will his quest to be free cause him to finally embrace the monster? There is still plenty to enjoy in this lesser sequel and William Marshall is once again strong in the role that sadly didn't continue after this entry.His commanding presence and intense stare dominate every scene he's in and who wouldn't want to stare at Pam Grier who holds her own with Marshall quite well. There are still some very creepy moments too, especially when a squad of unprepared cops enter a vampire infested mansion at the spooky climax. And the 70s nostagia helps make up for some of the shortcomings by adding some charm to the proceedings. Plenty of entertainment to be had if you liked the first entry or just enjoy a good dose of 70s B-movie horror. Sadly, Scream's poor performance scrapped plans for a third entry. Had they only taken time to craft a worthy sequel this series might have gone on and made a star out of Marshall as Hammer's Dracula series did for Brit legend Christopher Lee.

(es) wrote: Another Demy musical with the beautiful Catherine Deneuve...full of romance and colour, but without the melancholy of Les Parapluies de Cherbourg. Kind of like a psychedelic bastard child of The Wizard of Oz and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Only French. My favourite song was "Cake d'amour" - check it out on YouTube...
