Dealing with the war at the height of its volcanic temperament both here and abroad, "The Green Berets" satisfies its anti-war clique by addressing their concerns in the beginning and then embedding a liberal reporter with Wayne's group as they try and defend an outpost in the Vietnam jungle, questioning many of the film's attitudes towards the event. The war scenes are admirably filmed (except for a few model/dummy explosion scenes that are straight B-movie stuff) and even my lackluster admiration for Wayne as an actor is subdued by the rich characterizations and easy sentimentality.

I have a soft spot for it too but it just feels hopelessly out of step with its age: playing like something made twenty years earlier.

The director Ray Kellog started out as a sfx guy on b movies which probably explains some of the wonky model set ups.

I'd say it's better than its reputation suggests but, given how bad its reputation is, it could hardly be anything else.

noo… i loved this one! yes, upon rewatch it wasn't such a great quality film, but it has something unforgettable for me actually-- not sure if the story or the characters or the kid's theory of the milk cycle or that "al primer rayo de la luuuuuuuna…" or everything combined, but i've found myself thinking about that movie regularly over the years. i suppose it's that i find it has some fundamental truths about things that other films are afraid to show.

I've been on a Bigas Luna kick lately after finding a ton of his films on torrents, and I think my main reason I called "The Tit and the Moon" forgettable is because so many of his other films are just incredible. "The Ages of Lulu", "Anguish" and "Caniche" especially. Also, "The Tit and the Moon" reminded me sooo much of Julio Medem's films of the 90's, which get at the roots of childhood, fantasy and unrequited love in much more touching ways. By the way, if you like Luna, I highly suggest Medem's films such as "Earth", "Vacas", "The Red Squirrel" and especially "Lovers of the Arctic Circle", which is one of the most under appreciated films ever and one of the best of the 90's!

I just watch The Last Samurai for the first time.. I had a gut feeling I would like it back in 2003 when it came out but it got shitted on in reviews so I didnt bother. Whoa, this was one of the most visually beautiful movies ive ever seen and the storyline and dialogue was superb! Fuck the bullshit, I loved this movie

Cloud atlas which blew my mind. Original Nightmare On Elm Street which was so much better than I.remembered. Silent Hill which was si much worse than I remembered but that game was stunningly terrifying

Awesome review time.
I watched Demons. Duh.

Sort of awesome, sort of shit. Pretty much any superior awesomeness is undermined by 80's hair metal shite soudtrack.

Grave Encounters. Nowt but rip-off/illogical/cliche bullshit. FUCK OFF.

I found it disappointing.

As someone said on IMDB Joaquin Phoenix just seems "to be channeling nerdy Johnny Galecki from The Big Bang Theory".

The strong retrofuturistic aspect ended up annoying me too.

I really liked Amy Adams and Rooney Mara's acting though (very convincing and touching).

Have you saw Session 9 Slavo? If not, similar setup. There's a nightime scene with this guy wondering around an abandoned hopital at night with a torch and headphones plugged in is really creepy and atmospheric. Worth watching just for this part alone.

Silence of the lambs.. it was surprisingly better than I remembered.. I also watched some Alien Nation movie, in the 90s I really liked this.show but the movie was terrible in the sense that it didnt come across as a movie at all, just an extended episode of the tv version

come on, we've all watched that movie because it's dune, and we love dune, but as a movie, this is a massive turd. the de laurentiis fucked it up to the point that lynch himself won't recognize the film as his (this is lynch's "spartacus", if you wanna draw a parallel w/ kubrick repudiating his only movie where assholes meddled).

dune the book is amazing, dune the movie is just a poor adaptation of a great book. full of holes and horribly put together with voiceovers. they should have let lynch do his 3 hours.

I'd be much more concerned with what the Emperor's Carkeys had to say. That is indeed if the Emperor has a car and those cars keys had thoughts and articulated those thoughts through a mouth (as opposed to brain - because that could be someone else's thoughts intercepting the telepathic stream, duh). I'd be VERY concerned indeed to hear those thoughts. I mean the keys could belong to a Volvo. The lights would never switch off! Nicolas Cage could be living on the back seat stinking the place out reprising his role from Leaving Las Vegas.

It is true. all true. Sometimes the amazing failures are more fun than the amazing successes.

Yeah, I enjoy Dune because of its failings rather than in spite of them.
