Gung Ho! (1943) I expected more from this but it's really a disappointment. The only scene worth watching is the one of the man who fell asleep on the outside of the submarine (!). The rest is childish. The italian dvd quality is only passable. 4\10

I haven't seen this one in ages, but from what I remember it's a solid 8. Compared to these new Christopher Nolan resources consuming amalgamations of everything shiny and phony at the same time, I might as well give it a 9.5/10.

Are Batman Returns and Batman Forever worth checking out?

Batman Returns is decent. I don't know if I would go out of my way to see it. It's been a while though.

I can't stand the pretentious Nolan movies.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

Michael Collins - 9/10 - A very old-fashioned biopic (its structure is virtually identical to Gandhi, for a start) about a still-controversial figure. Despite its conventional plot structure, it's an excellent film, with lots of action, beautiful photography and music, and lots of well-earned emotion and pathos. Liam Neeson gives a brilliant performance which easily surpasses everything else I've seen him in. Good supporting work, too, from Alan Rickman and Aidan Quinn. The only flaw is the horribly-miscast Julia Roberts; who the fuck looked at her and thought "Irishwoman"? Oh well, it's forgivable.

For what it's worth: Begins is one of the worst super hero movies ever.
Everything is TERRIBLE except for a lot of the supporting cast.

On Dangerous Ground (1952) dir: Nicholas Ray, with Ida Lupino, Robert Ryan, Ward Bond, Charles Kemper, Anthony Ross, Ed Begley, Ian Wolfe, Sumner Williams, and Nita Talbot.

Just about every time I've caught this its been from the manhunt in the country sequence to the end. One time I saw the very beginning and never knew how it segued from the city to the countryside, I always assumed Ryan was chasing a crook.

Now I finally know the story, brutal cop with inner turmoil, get shipped to the rurales to help with a manhunt. Ends up seeing himself reflected in Ward Bond's revenge filled father character. Woman, Ida Lupino, soothes the savage beast. A pretty good noir with a nice juxtaposition of city/country images. Watch Nita Talbot's prostitute character in the bar as she looks Ryan up and down. 8.5/10.

I meant Batman Returns. Batman Begins does indeed suck.

Ugh, good thing you edited your post, I almost started writing... O0

Anyway, I remember I absolutely hated Batman Returns when it came out, however, when I later saw it on TV it kinda grew on me. It took a couple of shots, yeah, and it's been 10 years or so since I last saw it. The supporting cast seems to be the best part, I actually saw only now Pat Hingle played Commissioner Gordon.

Batman Forever? Well, it's better than Batman & Robin, that's for sure.

Dances With Wolves - 7/10 - 2nd viewing. It's got a lot going for it: gorgeous photography, excellent action scenes (especially the buffalo hunt), spirited performances by the Indian actors and a beautiful John Barry score. It's definitely worth noting that, even in the slower parts, it's never exactly boring. Working against it: Costner the actor, laughably caricatured white characters, anachronistic sopping to political correctness, annoying narration and lots of moronic, sub-John Ford humor. Then you've got idiocies like the Sioux becoming expert riflemen with no training and Costner getting brained a dozen times in the last half hour (he must have a cast-iron skull). Good but not Best Picture good.

Yowser.... I still prefer "Little Big Man" for laughably caricatured white characters, anachronistic sopping to political correctness, annoying narration and lots of moronic, sub-John Ford humor.  O0

I've always liked this movie but have you seen the longest version? It really gets boring with about half an hour of stupid mystic talk and scenes toward the end.

Black Swan Uh... 7/10? 8/10?
Very well done. Appart from:
- Portman's character at the begining a bit cliché (you can be a white swan without living in a pink bedroom and without that ennoying little voice)
- Vincent Cassel's french lines (ok, he only has like 6 french lines, but they really sound terrible. Whereas he is amazingly good the rest of the time. I'm sticking with my opinion: I still have to see ONE director able to direct an actor in a langage he (the director) doesn't know)
- The whole adolescent feeling. Aronofsky is a great filmmaker, but while Pie and Requiem For A Dream needed this kind of candid adolescent that tries so hard to be a disturbing artist feeling, it doesn't work with The Fontain, The Wrestler and Black Swan. You can say that the guy isn't very mature, and that's a problem for these 3 movies to reach the magnitude/amplitude they try to get to. Not sure I'm clear. In Black Swan, for instance, a more open ending and a less cliché character would have been great for the movie.
The rest is great.
The subway scenes, shot on Canon 7D, perfectly fit in the film, even if the image is a bit noisy: the whole film is noisy. I knew about them so I thought they felt a bit video, but I wouldn't have noticed if I had not paid attention.

I don't think I'll bother with the four-hour cut of Dances With Wolves. Three hours was pushing it for me.

Sink the Bismarck! (1960) It gives little a good documentary wouldn't deliver. During the sea battles it is hard  to make out who's shooting who, the ships looking all the same (exactly as they do to british airplanes which, by mistake, torpedo one of their ships by mistaking her for the Bismarck). The Germans speak English, just to add some more confusion. 5\10

I liked Sink the Bismarck! If you'd used those exact words about Battle on the River Plate, then we'd be in agreement.
