Mutant Reviewers From Hell: 10 Things I Hate About You

  • . They figure if they slip in a few Victorian phrases hither and yonder, and give the characters some odd names, they'll slip classical literature under the guise of YET ANOTHER makeover-and-prom flick
  • . Firstly, the characters of Lucentio and Tranio, here named Cameron and Michael, don’t switch places in order to win the love of Bianca for Lucentio/Cameron
  • . 10 Things tried to hard to make its audience hate the rival for Bianca’s affections; it would’ve been much more interesting if both suitors were sympathetic, likeable characters
  • . I particularly liked the supporting characters, especially Kat and Bianca’s father, Mr
  • . (Special mention has to go to the supporting characters; the guidance counselor’s moonlighting job is dead hilarious — though writing novels or, say, movie reviews on company time is just wrong, kids — and I have yet to meet anyone who didn’t laugh during Larry Miller’s spot-on delivery of his placenta speech.) Plus, it’s cute and sweet, in a way that even neanderthalish athletes respond to

  • . But Price of Glory fills it well." --, " Price of Glory is not a contender." --, "The movie clocks out with a cowardly sucker-punch." --, "[Smits and Seda] give the movie more heart than was probably on the page, and their powerful presence nearly ennobles the cornball material." --, " Price of Glory is an earnest but flatfooted saga." --, "Cliches fly faster than fists in Price of Glory , an old-fashioned boxing movie that can't really go the distance." --, "It creates a rooting interest, and most importantly, it has the force of Smits' intensity, which cannot be discounted." --, "The specificity of Glory's setting and the ethnicity of its characters enrich the story without moving it one iota away from a mainstream frame of reference." --, ( ) , ( 1-35 ) of 55 , sorted by last name z-a Page > | Latest Posts on the Price of Glory Forum by 2 posts 5/9/02 by 2 posts 5/6/02 by 1 posts 5/6/02 by 2 posts 11/14/01 by 1 posts 9/14/01 Access Reviews and Articles for Price of Glory by ..

    Jabootu's Bad Movie Dimension: Boxing Helena
  • . "What else could all this be for?" Ho ho, what laughter results of knowing things that the characters don't! Chuckle chuckle
  • . In fact, none of the major characters are likable
  • . How did she know what he was talking about? It’s always a sign of a bad script when the characters make leaps of intuition like that
  • . Why then, is she forcing us to spend 105 minutes with him? And with other characters we don't like? Helena tells him that people lie to respect other people's feelings because they love them, but she doesn't care about his feelings
  • . The characters involved in the wig-out scene suddenly like each other
  • . The characters don't make any sense, the situations are too out there to be believed

  • . Although "Rain Man" (for which Dustin Hoffman won the Best Actor Academy Award) was based on the actual Kim Peek, "The Other Side of Heaven" is the first film Molen has produced with overtly Latter-day Saint characters and themes
  • . Despite its subject matter, "The Other Side of Heaven" is really no more a "Mormon film" than "Schindler's List" was a strictly "Jewish film." Many non-Latter-day Saint characters are in the film, including the Methodist minister who became a friend of Groberg's while he was on his mission

    Rotten Tomatoes: Tears of the Sun
  • . But the blind patriotism we are spoon-fed towards the end makes this film a little hard to swallow." --, "The movie is smothered by wooden characters, one-dimensional performances, a flawed story line and unforgivable cliches." --, "Low expectations aside, imagine my surprise when I found myself rather involved with a film that quietly ingratitates itself into your head while not really offering anything new." --, "This may be a 'war' movie that has more appeal to women because it's not just about the battles, it's about the people caught in the struggle." --, "' Tears of the Sun is great PR for United States foreign policy and its military

    Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)
  • . Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) is a technically-marvelous film blending animated, ink-and-paint cartoon characters and flesh-and-blood live actors, in a convincing comedy/mystery noir thriller, set in Los Angeles in 1947
  • . Earlier efforts to combine humans and ink-and-paint cartoon characters side-by-side in a film [Disney's Song of the South and Mary Poppins , for example] are considered primitive next to this film
  • . It was filmed as a tribute to the entire pantheon of cartoon characters from Disney, Warner Bros., and MGM, and other studios in the 1940s
  • . Famous cartoon voices were used (Mel Blanc for Daffy Duck, Tweety Bird, Bugs Bunny, Sylvester, and Porky Pig and Charles Fleischer for Roger, Greasy, Psycho, and Benny the Cab), and the live-action characters were coordinated with cartoon characters - the animations were drawn and inserted after the live photography was shot
  • . Its revolutionary animation: (1) used light and shadows in new ways to produce remarkably realistic, 3-D effects; (2) extensively panned and moved the camera to reduce a static look; and (3) had the car'toon' characters interact flawlessly with real-world objects and flesh-and-blood people as much as possible
