After Hours (1985) - 4/10

Stupid.

I've tried to watch this twice and couldn't make it beyond the first 30 minutes and that only out of respect for the director.

Funny, I too unsuccessfully tried watching it a couple of times before I finally managed to stay awake till the end. I would have thrown the DVD after the first attempt but everybody around me was of the opinion this was a cult comedy from a great director and that I should definitely give it try. And so I  gave it a try... and just nothing. Usually I'm a sucker for this kind of ''night in the urban jungle'' simple stories but this just wasn't going anywhere. One thing that I really didn't get was why were all the streets empty? That really pissed me off. It made no sense whatsoever.

I can't remember one truly funny movie they were in to be honest, but DBAMTSCWDYJITH (check if the first letters are in the right order... yeah, right.) was a funny and watchable spoof if you knew the movies, jokes, stereotypes (etc.) they were spoofing.

I don't hate it, I'd give a generous seven, but the problem is that the main character is basically a prop continually thrown into redundant, uncomfortable situations. Had their been more character development and less shenanigans, it would have been much better.

I like its look or style, especially the swooping zoom of Rosanna Arquette (sp?).

Im Gonna Get You Sucka is a funny movie. Scary Movie has its moments. and its not a comedy but damon wayans was great in The Last Boy Scout.

You maybe right about this one, but again: it's another parody. Cheesy

The Swindlers (aka The Swindle) - (1955) I never discovered who labeled this as a "minor" Fellini. I saw it when I was barely in my teens and was impressed. Especially the party sequence. Crawford's death, I didn't remember it was so good. The sequence with the cripple girl is apparently pathetic, but of course Fellini makes it tragic with the further development. What I hadn't realized until today was how much of an influence must have been on the genre known as commedia all'italiana   whose first movie is unanimously considered (not a coincidence) Big Deal on Madonna Street: a movie about two-bit thieves as this is about two bits con men.  But Fellini's influence must have been stronger on Risi rather than Monicelli. If you like the '50's Fellini this is not to be missed. A dvd is available, I think.

Rusty Saves a Life - 102/10 - The best Rusty yet!

Public Enemies - 7/10 - Second viewing. My opinion is roughly the same as my first viewing though I had fewer problems with the historical inaccuracies and the sound seemed significantly better than the first time (though we were still sitting a row in front of chattering old douchebag). My brother thought it was okay, though he bitched about the shaky cam and didn't like the romance.

I need to re-watch this one, I like it a good bit.

and Groggy, your bro would fit in well with us shaky cam, romance haters.
