I eat, drink and sleep movies. But I call them films.
Some of my reviews have question marks instead of commas, for this and other in-corrections in grammar, I apologise.
I like films and I like talking to other people who like films about films! If you don't really like films you are at the wrong place. All my reviews are based on my own opinion, if you don't like it, you know what to do but please don't be nasty and try and keep your remarks short and intelligent.
Please don't add me just to increase your numbers, I will only add you/ask for you friendship if I like your style (Not because you are naked, although, feel free to send me naked pictures of yourself if you like ;o).
Learn the rules before you play the game!
I look forward to communicating with you in the future! ;o)
PS. I'm not a troll and I don't have lots of other profiles and other such nonsense. I'm not interested nor will I tolerate anti-social networking!
Oi, Flixster, sort the list function out!!!!!!!
Rio Grande's visual allure is famous, it's beautiful black and white, light and dark compositions are a masterwork. Personally I think the script is more impressive and is criminally overlooked. It always helps when you have two greats like John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara delivering the lines but the supporting actors are all really good too.
A better, more inventive film than the first. I think I quite liked it, probably because I had feared the worst. The voice talent was quite impressive, as was the animation, script and story. It's then that I think that is is a shame it's all about cars. The story would have been better had it been about something else I think but I guess they've got to sell toys somehow!
Along with Riff-raff and Naked, to name just a couple, Raining Stones marks a rather special time in film. Early 90's realism like this really got me into film. Seeing the beauty in not just every day things but in the down-trodden and desperate. When people think of little Britain and classic British film, everyone remembers Scum and Made in Britain that came before and Nil by Mouth that came after but they forget these overlooked gems. These are the films that really portray a slice of Britain that was/are real and many people can relate to. Ken Loach is a great director, everything he does is full of passion and good nature, no victim is ever victimised either which when you look back at, is unfortunately not the case in many films of the era. These people are where they are by no fault of their own, aren't drug takers of thugs. Maybe this is why he picked non-actors in the main roles, it's hard to believe that this was Bruce Jones's first role. Both he and Ricky Tomlinson had colourful lives before acting; Bruce Jones discovered the body of murdered prostitute Jean Jordan, a victim of the Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe and Ricky Tomlinson was a militant trade unionist. In 1973 he was imprisoned for 15 months for organising flying pickets as part of a building workers' strike. This only adds to the realism and charm. An overlooked great.
It's nice to see Joe Dante back in the directors chair again. The Hole is all good fun and very reminiscent of his previous classics; Twilight Zone, The 'Burbs, and the brilliant TV series Eerie, Indiana. It didn't feel like anything new but rather a return to the films I loved in the 80's. I loved the Bruce Dern character, a real nod to Lt. Mark Rumsfield. That and the very much appreciated Dick Miller cameo did it for me, give me this over Super 8 everyday. Could the king of Cartoon kooky be back?
As painful to the ears as it is to the eyes. I am number 4 has the worst dialogue I've heard in a long time. Teenage Alien with angst meets human teenagers with similar angst and team up to fight other aliens who want to kill them for no apparent reason. It is dull beyond belief, poorly written and acted and relies heavily on special effects and a monster fight in the end. The cliches are too many to mention. Should be called I am a big fat number 2.
