[color=lightblue]These are just a few of the adjectives than can be used to describe this film. Stories like these remind us how easily things come to us and how safe a road we have to obtain our goals. It may even make one realize that they actually have no real goals or certainly very little of the passion needed to make good things happen. Maybe stories like this will not motivate everyone, but at least this one will surely stir some emotions that don't always see the light of day. [/color]
[color=lightblue]I would have liked to have seen the concert, I am sure it was one for the ages...I guess if Mamo did not get to see it, we do not deserve to see it, either.[/color]
[color=lightblue]My taglines -- Desperate times call for desparate measures...There are no easy fixes...Just say "no"...When you can't just cut your losses...What's the worst that can happen?...and maybe - When the going gets rough: just have your less than intelligent brother knock off your parents jewelry store...[/color]
[color=lightblue]Despite being a tad drawn out, the cast's very fine performances all add up to a very good film. We get to the depths of the souls of the characters pretty quickly and then they are kind of rung like a wet towel before your eyes. The layering of the story is pretty effective and just as you almost say, "Alright already!"; it all leads to a very gripping conclusion. Finney and Hoffman were very good and even kind of looked like father and son. I guess I can live with seeing some Tomei skin, too; even at the expense of some PSH and EH ass shots.[/color]
[color=lightblue]I always look forward to Tim Burton's works. His style is as cool as it gets in my book; and he does not disappoint in style with his latest effort. He and Johnny Depp make a great team and Helena Bonham Carter fits in almost better than Depp, which is hard to believe. I found this to be as dark as a love story can be, and at the same time as light as a horror story can be. The music that accompanies Burton's films is usually done by the very talented Danny Elfman, which I expected here, but since this was a broadway musical I would guess it was an easy transition for the composers to make a score for the movie and it was excellent. I am not a musical movie guy, but it did not bother me too much in this. I am glad they made it a musical, in an effort to retain the magic of the Broadway play. Depp's singing probably was not as good as what you would find in a theatrical production, but it worked just fine for the mass audience. I can not say enough about one of my favorite character actors of all time -- Alan Rickman. He is a true professional and usually steals every scene that he is in, although this time I would say the only person who MIGHT have stole some scenes in this was Sacha Baren Cohen -- who was electric as Pirelli, the rival barber, in his short lived and doomed-from-get-go role. Timothy Spall was worth mentioning, too. His ability to be creepy is almost..well, creepy. Overall, this was another well done addition to the Tim Burton collection and I recommend it to anyone who does not mind a little singing to accompany their gratutious bloodshed.[/color]
[color=lightblue]A sled...is that what they are calling it these days? [/color]
[color=lightblue]RKO 281 was a pretty fun look into the details leading to the release of the highly controversial masterpiece of American cinema "Citizen Kane". Of course the actual movie was better, as I have read, but the actual movie was better than 99.9% of the thousands of efforts since. The movie had some humor and some drama, but kept the two in a pretty believable balance. Very good performances by Schreiber and Malkovich and, really, everyone else. Cromwell and Griffith were very watchable as the couple in the spotlight and I might even say that Griffith was excellent. I am interested to see how accurate this was. My rating will go down a tad if it was not mostly based on fact. I would really get it if details were changed because surely enough facts exist to make this story interesting.[/color]
