Pursuit of Happyness

3 on the RRS

I saw it a few weeks ago actually, so I don't have any comments
One thing I will add:

Will Smith's son in the film (who is his actual son in real life)...does an amazing job for a child actor.  That said...what is any respectable parent doing getting their kid into show business?

Yeah why would anyone want to go in show business   Grin

Course I work in film so I don't agree with your statement at all but do agree that massive exposure of the kid to the media without the kids permission or understanding can be pretty harmfull.

talladega nights
the story here was really nothing new, but the humor was so weird that it was an enjoyable movie. 2 hours is a bit too long for a comedy tho.




shadow company
a look at the private contractors, or mercenaries as they're also known as, working in iraq and their history in previous conflicts and wars. very enlightening and good documentary.




where the buffola roam
I haven't read the book, but this was far from as good as fear and loathing in las vegas. the best part of it was bill murray. his interpretation of thompson is on level with johnny depp's.




the quick and the dead
full of western cliches. this was a very unrealistic movie. but gene hackman's performance made it worthwile. too bad there was no sex scenes with sharon stone, she was quite fine back then.

Perfume ***1/2 could have been a **** but I think Dustin Hoffman was a bit miscast, they should have used GianCarlo Giannini in his part, was expecting a bit more but it delivered ok and was entertaining lots of skin on display so be advised if you have problems with that.

Children of Men

8.5/10

Amazing, and I mean AMAZING cinematography. Yet, the general story was pretty lacking. The acting was pretty good, though. Along with the soundtrack.

Rebecca - 5/5
Along with Rear Window, Vertigo, North by Northwest, and The Lady Vanishes, this is one of Hitchcock five (or possibly three) best films. Olivier and Fontaine give amazing performances in the often twisting and unpredicatable plot. If you ever see this one, make sure to pick it up, considering it's unavailable on Netflix, and it goes from $100 - $450 on Amazon. I was lucky enough to find a copy at the local library, and I'll surely be burning a copy.

Rrpower's Rating Scale
5 - A classic, or will someday be considered a classic. Simply amazing.
4 - Very, very good - atleast one viewing is necessary.
3 - It's good, but passable.
2 - Don't waste your time on this - a bad movie.
1 - Avoid this at all costs necessary, even if it means suicide.

Cinema Paradiso -  10 out of 10

You saw this film recently Peace?
This is one of those films that stay with you long after watching.
The ending w/ Moricone's music is the most memorable, along with
the scene of the demolition of the theatre. If you like nostalgic
films, this has to be at the top of one's list.

Ryan's Daughter - 8/10 (maybe a 9/10).  Not much to say, except I like it more than "Zhivago".

the pink panther
a princess who in her possession has a large diamond with what resembles a pink panther inside it. she's on vacation in the alps and is a prime target for the infamous Phantom, a master thief. Inspector Clouseau sees this as his chance to catch him once and for all, so he travels to the alps with his wife to set his trap.

this movie was definitely different from the later pink panther movies. it was much less goofy and had more subtle comedy. and it had a decent story. worth a watch. and claudia carndinale is a real looker




the wanderers
set against the backdrops of the gangwars in NY in the 60's, we follow a group of friends as they enter into adulthood.

a good movie, but it got a little strange in parts where the gang "duckies" was present. for some reason their scenes seem to have a horror-element to them.

Dick Tracy

Very much enjoyed this. Took the comic book style to the limit with its excellent uses of three main colors, red, green and yellow. Warren Beatty was great as Dick and the assembled cast, including Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman, Dick Van Dyke and Jimmy Caan were brilliant buried under alot of latex. Also a brilliant neo-noir story.

4 out of 5
