Three intriguing period kaiju classics

“Spanning three films all released at four monthly intervals in the same year, 1966, the Daimajin series is one of the most atypical of all Japanese kaiju films. In this case the strange monster is a giant statue of a warrior that comes to life, but rather than menacing a modern city he's a force of ” read more

“It may not tap into the primal majesty of Arnold Fanck and Leni Riefenstahl's once-hugely popular German `berg' films of the Thirties, but Disney's 1959 live-action feature Third Man on the Mountain is a rather splendid family-friendly adventure that benefits from a stronger story and characterisati” read more

Moviediva posted a review of Baby Face (1933)

“Probably my favorite pre-code film which possesses an uncharacteristically upbeat ending full of hope. A beautiful, saavy, young girl longs to escape the confines of the slums and works her way up through the ranks of the banking corporation and into the upper echelons of society only to discover t” read more

Devolving Into Melodrama

The Declaration of Independence is but a small piece of this effort-- the greater part is the song they find within their hearts. Freedom is celebrated from s” read more

mildly good

“this is a decent movie that should be entertaining enough for most kids and maybe adults too. it never raises to the level of madagascar which its obviously banking off of. and thats sort've a shame because it has good potential. the jokes don't really come off well even when there are good jokes” read more

Piece of crap!

“This is officially one of the worst movies I have ever seen! I wasn't expecting much to begin with because I knew it had that "handycam" film quality too it but my God was this bad! It has piss poor acting, lame jokes, even lamer effects, and some odd looking boobs too.

violence for kids...i think

“whatever this movie had going for it was wasted.

at least you know quickly that what you're watching has little connection to reality. its a cartoon...a violent one; which makes it a little hard to assess who the target audience was??

This series gives a rich insight into the culture and cultural differences within India it's self and also, shows how caste is still very important in modern India.

Mirko posted a review of Rambo

“Il film “RAMBO” e un film che si stacca dal solito filone dei film d’azione, per una volta infatti l’azione condivide il primo piano con un messaggio di denuncia. Questa pellicola infatti analizza in pieno,la società Americana, una società che non tollera gli sconfitti e che può ammettere” read more
