Back to the Future
21 months ago via Flixster

This is one of the best time travel movies made. It's got funny characters and lots of funny lines. The acting is good and the special effects are good too. I enjoyed this movie because they go back to 1955. I was born in 1955 and was 30 in 1985 when this movie was made. It was fun to see what they thought the world was like when I was born.

Bachelor Party
23 months ago via Flixster

This is one of Tom Hanks early comedy movies. It was made after his TV show ended. His co-star is Tawny Kitaen. She hot but they wait till the end of the movie to show it. It's another movie trying to copy Animal House. Only they put it in a hotel with a bunch of grown men acting like juveniles at a bachelor party. The acting is bad, the story is lame and the jokes are not funny.

Scarface (1932)

This early gangster movie was sort of based on Al Capone's life. The first half maybe but the second half is fiction. Al Capone was still running the mob in Chicago when this movie was made. The story is based on the bootleggers in Chicago and was considered controversial at the time. Compared to modern movies this movie is tame.

Porky's (1982)
23 months ago via Flixster

This was supposed to be a funny teenage comedy set in the 1950's. Sort of American Graffiti/Happy Days with a strip club. By the time this movie came out the 1970's era nostalgia for the 1950's was almost over. This movie was just a long string of crude sex jokes set in a 1950's Florida High School. I went and saw this movie at the Heritage Park Mall movie theater in Midwest City, Oklahoma. I don't think I laughed through the whole movie. I was expecting an Animal House type of movie. The only memorable scene was the nude girls in the shower scene. There are no funny jokes and no memorable lines. There is one part of the movie were they take one of the characters out in the country to have sex with a hooker but is chased off by a big black guy while still in the nude. It reminded me of a story my Dad told me about when he was in college in the 1940's where they took a guy out to an old farm house to see a girl and then someone would fire a shotgun into the air and pretend to be the girls father. Although the movie is called Porky's very little of the movie takes place at Porky's. The final joke of the movie is when they collapse the strip club into the swamp in revenge for they way they were treated earlier in the movie.

The Bride of Frankenstein
23 months ago via Flixster

This is the sequel to the original Frankenstein movie. A lot of people think this is a better movie than the original. I don't think so. The original was a pure horror story. This one tries to be funny. If you want to watch a funny Frankenstein movie watch Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein. It spoofs both of the first two Frankenstein movies. This movie starts in 1816 with Mary Shelley telling her original story. She changes the ending of the first movie to have Dr. Frankenstein and the monster survive the mob attack even though this was not in the original book. The movie then skips forward to the 20th century. Somehow early 19th century characters could see into the future and predict mid 20th century technology. After the supposedly dead Dr. Frankenstein revives and the monster escapes and begins to roam about the country side. A mysterious arrives to see Dr. Frankenstein and shows him these miniature people he has created and is keeping in glass jars. After this new character finds the monster, he befriends him and the two of them pressure Dr. Frankenstein into creating a mate for the monster. The movie then moves back to the castle lab where the Bride of Frankenstein is created. When the female monster is terrified by the male monster there just happens to be a self-destruction lever that the monster finds. As Dr. Frankenstein and his wife escapes the castle the monster pulls the lever and kills everyone in the castle as it collapses.
