An out-of-this-world story, about a girl who rescues the Cat Prince and ends of in the Kingdom of Cats as his reluctant bride-to-be. A story filled with high adventure, likeable characters and a humorous plot. Easily enjoyable.
An OK film, where the biggest problem is that it gets too bogged down in day-to-day chores and non-extraordinary events. Some interesting scenes are definitely present, but this remains one of the least fantastic movies from Studio Ghibli.
I'm clearly not part of the target audience for this movie. Predictable from start to finish, with an annoying teenage wannabe-cool know-it-all main character and every clichÃ¨ in the book. Marketed as a comedy, but ended up being very light on the laughs.
Beautiful compositions, colors and camerawork. The story is however a much more aquired taste. Five minutes of swordplay action (wich confusing close-up view), and 90 minutes of people hanging around wondering what love is. This was not just confusing, but very, very dull.
Enjoyable fantasy-ish movie. On the surface this is a pretty standard "evil man trying to become good" story, but it's very well executed and really looks good, from sets to effects to costumes, with decent acting and great swordfighting to boot.
Strangely compelling movie, which on one level really isn't much to write home about, yet at the same time it fascinates. Worth watching once, if nothing else for the immortal line "Honey, I am more man than you'll ever be, and more woman than you'll ever get."
This one felt very different - strangely sane, almost - compared to other Chow movies. It took about 20 minutes of viewing before I realized that this was a children's movie.
I think good children's films are usually top notch, so no problem there, but this one is closer to average. Some insane moments, which are among the best in the film, but it's really a hodge-podge of everything, and it doesn't work. Some comedy, some social commentary, some drama, some sci-fi, some tragedy... The results are incoherent and somewhat lesser than the sum of its parts, but still firmly in the "OK"-bucket.
Time travel plots are very hard to do in a believable manner, and that is the big problem with this film. That aside, this is an enjoyable enough sci-fi/action movie if you are looking for brainless entertainment.
The original French heist film, from which all heist movies since (including the "Oceans"-movies) have sprung. As it's not made in Hollywood, there are no happy endings in sight, and a lot of this is directly downbeat. But the story is engaging and interesting to the end.
Roger Moore call this dramatic film "the only one I ever had to actually act in", and he certainly portrays a different kind of character here. A man find that a double of himself is walking around, gradually assuming control of his life. Not very upbeat for many reasons, but a good story.
This animated fable is a sight to behold, enthralling from beginning to end. The best movie I have seen in a very, very long time.
I like watching old c-movies of the sci-fi/horror type, either hoping for a hidden gem or for an enjoyable "so bad that it's good"-film. Unfortinately, this one is neither. But seeing an "alien" dressed in bearskin with a diving helmet on top does hold a certain charm.
Pretty darn good, and much better than expected. Leonard Nemoy rocks. But I'll never forgive what they did to Vulcan.
It has probably been nearly 20 years since I saw this movie last. I like all the cheesy 80's fantasy movies and wanted to see it again, and am happy to say that it was funnyer and more entertaining than I remembered. And - if possible - more cheesy!
Doctor eats experimental pill by mistake, and is turned into - not a vampire - but a strange, retarded human scabman! A few killing rampages are hinted at, and in a clear moment he decides to end it all. He sends his daughter away, writes his will and tries to kill himself. But even here he is interrupted and chased, and dies in a muddy ditch. I expected a "scary" monster movie, but this is more like a sad human tragedy/drama. Strange.
Quite decent, but with so many changes from the fantastic book that it was a little hard to accept. Even more problematic is the condensing of the story. You will probably enjoy this movie quite a bit more if you haven't read the book.
Ronnie James Dio alone is enough to make this an instant classic! Fortunately the movie has much more to offer: great music, great rock references, great humour and an enjoyable story.
