The premise is outright crazy (very Battlefield Earth and Planet of the Apes), and the acting is atrocious but the dialogue is often very witty and fun.Bruce Campbell is awesome, and Renne O'Connor is passable, but the remaining cast is pretty forgettable, with the exceptions of some very bad wigs and fake facial hair.Definitely worth a see for a good chuckle.

Fresh from the Paramount decision and struggling mightily to regain audience to combat television, the methods used by the studios around this time are always quite apparent. With a film like NIAGARA (Henry Hathaway, 20th Century Fox, 1953) you see this methodology right from the start of the film.As television got started it had two major drawbacks when compared to film. The screen was minuscule by comparison and what was viewed on that screen was black and white. So the studios came up with technologies like Technicolor and CinemaScope and they slowly wore down walls of censorship that had existed for years. Within the first ten minutes of NIAGARA we see all three methods in use. The colors provided by Technicolor are rich and striking, vibrant and full. And while the film did not use a technique like CinemaScope, the cinematography for the film is vast and expansive, taking in incredible shots of Niagara Falls and it's attendant beauty. And soon thereafter we are treated to a lush and beautiful Marilyn Monroe, always sultry and seductive but in this opening shot, inviting as she has ever been seen onscreen.And Marilyn, if she is anything, is pure sex. The opening shot of her in the film finds her in bed (albeit in a twin bed, a fifties signature) with a very obvious "nothing" between her and the bedsheets. Still not quite the icon she would become or even the feminine ideal of her time, her sex during this films release had to blow standards away. And Hathaway does a remarkable job in balancing decency (battling censors) and displaying her in a way which is provocatively suggestive. And her character belies one of the films major themes, which is that underlying sexuality in fifties America. I have written before on this topic but the sexual subtext for America during this decade was palpable in every piece of culture we examine today.Forgotten in today's disposable world is the great Joseph Cotten. Not suave and debonair like Cary Grant, never the grandfatherly Jimmy Stewart, not even the everyman that Bogie represented, Cotten still is a tremendous actor. He has this ability in his roles to be that average Joe yet to still be able to infuse his portrayals with a menacing foreboding. He portrays that darker side of us, the one we all pretend doesn't exist. If you get the chance try to catch some of his films, particularly SHADOW OF A DOUBT (Alfred Hitchcock, Universal, 1943) or THE THIRD MAN (Carol Reed, Selznick Pictures, 1949) and you will not be disappointed. Spend a day of it, watch all three films I mentioned in this post. You won't regret it!

KJ P (br) wrote: There are good films, bad films, and then those that you know are not good but you just can't help but enjoy for reasons unknown. "Step Up" is one of those films, because I enjoy how the actors think they are in a serious film, when the emotion and pacing is so cliche that it becomes amusing. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum are great together, but that is probably due to the fact that they fell in love on set and got married in real life. "Step Up" has some of the worst script-writing even with the standards set by this lame story. As a juvenile teenager is forced into community service, he finds an interest in ballet and romance blossoms. This film is very lame, oddly directed, and almost every scene is handled sloppily, but the chemistry saves this film from being utter garbage. In the end, I would almost call this a guilty pleasure, but that would be way too generous.

Lundgren plays Nick Gunner, a mercenary who is hired to go to a island somewhere in Southeast Asia to get them to let the evil corporation owned by the Dharma and Greg guy and his partner. Along the way, Gunner assembles a crack team of commandos, including Zeus (No Holds Barred) and Catherine Bell. It's the same plot you've pretty much seen Dolph do quite a few times before: Trained killer is hired to do job to subjugate an innocent person or people; along the way, trained killer meets LBFM and has a change of heart. It's up to trained killer to protect the person/people/nation/island from those trying to exploit it. It's a formula I think Dolph knows works pretty well.This is pretty good B movie crap. The Dolph is a noble mercenary, willing to do anything for his crew. He tangles with this wannabe Vernon Wells guy, who acts and talks just like Bennett from Commando. The same kind of homosexual overtones that existed in that baddie return here as well more blatantly (the baddie in this likes to kiss other men a lot). The co stars are also cool: Zeus is here, Catherine Bell (J.A.G.) as well. The guy from Dharma and Greg, of course. Charlotte Lewis brought her nice boobies to the table, and gets down with Dolph in a waterfall. I thought it was awesome to see Kevin Tighe, who played Frank Tihlman from Roadhouse, in this. This is the second movie I've seen that indirectly associates Dolph with Roadhouse. Special mention goes to the guy who played Po (BD Wong), who was very funny. Overall, it's heavier on drama than action, but the whole thing is tinted with some welcome humor.Recommended.
