An average movie

Since I have seen almost all the movies directed by Steven Spielberg (I know, I’m a very obsessive person…), I had to watch this movie at some point. Basically, it is arguably the only real flop in Spielberg's otherwise prestigious career. And indeed, it was not really good, I’m afraid. I mean, even though it was not a total disaster (there is always something intriguing when a movie shows t... read more

A few things to learn about Spielberg Movies (20 movies items)

" Much has been made out of the bomb that was Spielberg’s attempt at more of a straight comedy, the 1979 war comedy 1941. But the director himself has a pretty good handle on what went wrong with the film. “What happened on the screen was pretty out of control,” he said, “but the production was pretty much in control. I don’t dislike the movie at all. I’m not embarrassed by it—I just think that it wasn’t funny enough.” "

An average movie

“Since I have seen almost all the movies directed by Steven Spielberg (I know, I’m a very obsessive person…), I had to watch this movie at some point. Basically, it is arguably the only real flop in Spielberg's otherwise prestigious career. And indeed, it was not really good, I’m afraid. I mean, even though it was not a total disaster (there is always something intriguing when a movie shows this level of chaos), it was indeed a very average flick. It is also interesting to note that it is actually the only real comedy directed by Spielberg, maybe one of the few genres he didn't master. Basically, the whole thing was just really messy and not really funny at all. Somehow, even after watching ‘Animal House’, I always wondered why people thought that John Belushi was such a hilarious” read more

Almost a complete review of Spielberg's work (29 movies items)

" Cast : Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Christopher Lee, Toshirô Mifune, Treat Williams, Nancy Allen, John Candy, John Landis, Mickey Rourke What was it about? Hysterical Californians prepare for a Japanese invasion in the days after Pearl Harbor. My two cents: It is, arguably, the only real flop in Spielberg's career. And even though it is not a total disaster, it is indeed a very average flick. It is interesting to note that it is actually the only real comedy directed by Spielberg, mayb"

"Katsottu: 25.1.2012 Jotenkin harvinaislaatuinen kokemus, sillä alussa luulin, että tämä tulee parodioimaan Spielbergin aiempia leffoja. Alkukohtauksessa nainen menee öiselle rannalle, heittää vaatteet mäkeen ja hyppää alasti veteen. Sitten alkaa soida Jaws-teema ja vesi poreilee. Kohtauksessa on jo valmiiksi parodiapiirteitä. Kunnes lopuksi vedestä vielä nousee sukellusvene, jossa on natsi Christopher Lee ja japanilaisia sotilaita. Alku oli ehdottomasti elokuvan parasta antia. Loppu"

Miika's Movie Diary - 2011 (320 movies items)

"Watched 8.10 ---------- Törmäilyhuumori ja muut tämän tyyppiset vitsit alkaa olla jo aikansa elänyttä, mutta kieltämättä tästäkin löytyy yllättäen jopa hauskoja kohtauksia eikä tsoukkeja ole lähdetty vääntämään rautalankasta. Fiilis on koko elokuvan ajan rento, ja pääosin nautin tämän katsomisesta."

Aprakadabra's Movie Diary - 2011 (399 movies items)

"Watched: 8.10 -------- Dan Aykroyd ja John Belushi perseilevät ynnä pallinaamailevat minkä kerkiävät, komediassa jossa on vanhan ajan törmäilyhuumoria ja parodiaa Spielbergin aiemmista elokuvista. Koko leffan ajan on sellainen rento fiilis, joten ei tätä voi sanoa huonoksi. Ja muut näyttelijät kantavat sellaisia nimiä kun Toshiro Mifune, Christopher Lee ja Mickey Rourke, joten mikään aivan turha miehitys ei elokuvassa ole."
