Hmmm. This has not aged well. I remember really enjoying this beck in the day.
Loved the short story this was based on and three adaptation is pretty good too
Entertaining enough in it's way
A great film, no matter how many times I've seen it, still great
Didn't quite pull off the atmosphere it needed but still watchable
Average enough film, although the soundtrack was a bit over the top with its jauntiness
This was not at all what I expected, and I really really liked it
So, I didn't really find the humour too funny in this film, I mean motherfuckers fucking shit up isn't that funny. But I guess for the time it was set it had the shock humour. But I did enjoy the film, and actually found it quite sweet in the end.
Don't think it. Don't say it. It being a desire to watch this film because it is utterly rubbish
My overwhelming reaction to this film is, man was it boring.
Full of its own importance yet saying nothing.
This is a very strange film. It could have been really good, but then it just goes and does something surreal and off the wall and ruins it all. Elliot is great in it though.
I don't know why I bothered as I haven't enjoyed any of the other wickian adventures.
Omg that film was just so so poor. I was fighting to keep my eyes open during it. I don't think I've ever been so uninvolved in a film. And I've just seen Rambo last blood so it isn't like it was in comparison with a good film.Terrible piss.
It'd be interesting to see this remade with a more sympathetic version of Barbara, an intelligent woman, full of life but given the times, her only options were marriage and a trapped life.
Just a bad bad film
Didn't like this at all. Felt bored through most of it. Nothing scary apart from the odd jump moment. Plot was so predictable and dull.
On second watch this is a bit meh, not scary enough, although a few good jump moments.I enjoyed it a lot on more my first watch (http://www.susanhatedliterature.net/2017/09/it-based-on-the-book/ ) but it really doesn't reward a second viewing.
I'll still be off to watch the second chapter though.
One of my favourite films of all time, just fun with vampires.
The fact that I've recently been watching Fry & Laurie means I find it hard to take "Control" seriously. Nevertheless I enjoyed this season.
This film is very much a product of its time. It has important things to say, but sometimes it just comes out and says them instead of making them part of the story. A bit too on the nose at times.
It is an interesting film, but it never quite works. I mean are we supposed to empathise with Cruise's character? Cause he is a bad dude, no questions. He may not be shooting people but he taking money from murderers and facilitating the expansion of their business. I don't think that aspect was ever really explored, the consequences of the business he was in.
Ah look, it is very entertaining and as full of action and madness as you'd expect. I could have done with a little more character every now and then, but it did the job.
Underwhelming.cast were all good but film itself was the embodiment of meh
Dialogue is bit too philosophical and ott at times, and it lost me at some point in the middle, but there are some really great moments in it.
You know I'm getting pretty fed up with the Kirk is "teh uber" and wins at everything and is always right.
Oh Rocky IV, the worst of the Rocky films in some ways. But also the most Rocky in others. Also, the film that is pretty much all montage. I mean, how many montages can one film take? Rocky IV certainly pushes the envelope there.
It is a bad film. I don’t think I could argue otherwise.
But, then again, Rocky. So I gotta love it, at least a little.
On rewatch I think I feel pretty much the same about this film as I did originally, it isn't going to win many awards but it damn entertaining. With much violence.
Also, I'd like somebody to make a film from the point of view of the picts/celts/germanics/whomevers that the Romans invaded without any rooting for the imperialistic colonial empire.
I'm sorry did Spock really say that the reason this serial killer murders women is because women feel more fear than men, and are easier to scare! say what now!
Kept me entertained, but certainly wouldn't be one I'd be rushing to rewatch.
So I've heard that this film got butchered by the studio and boy does it ever show. this film makes no sense. Unless all you want to look at is atmospheric fog, brights lights, dark shadows and goth/bdsm aesthetic. I mean, it is a look I guess... but it isn't really an actual film.
