Ape-alling!

Words can't describe how hilarious this film turned out. I did a little bit of research and found out that it cost $50 million to make this film. What a hoot! I hope that cheque was written exclusively to Tim Curry for his fee, as he was the only saving grace of this farcical.

Me and my friends spent most of the time debating where we'd seen all of the black actors before. Each one ... read more

An average movie

Honestly, I wasn't expecting much from this flick. Indeed, since I heard only bad things about this movie, I thought it would be something really bad. Eventually, even though it was indeed pretty average, it was definitely not the worst movie I have ever seen and I was (almost) positively surprised. In my opinion, if you don't take this movie too seriously, it is actually not completely awful and ... read more

Description: They've eluded heat-seeking missiles, gone eyeball-to-eyeball with enraged 5,000-pound hippos, hacked through a jungle curtain. Still, the expedition continues. Amy, a gorilla who was part of a university learning experiment, is at last returning home. A professor (Dylan Walsh), electronics expert (Laura Linney, The Truman Show) guide (Ernie Hudson), explorer (Tim Curry) and others follow the scampering ape. They know she will lead them to the place that's more than her home - it's the site of the fabled Lost City of Zinj and its diamond mines. But what they don't know can be fatal. Once they enter Zinj, they'll be the endangere ... (more)

" TITLE OF WRITTEN WORK: Congo PUBLISHED FORMAT: novel AUTHOR/CREATOR: Michael Crichton ORIGINAL PUBLICATION YEAR: 1980 HAVE I READ: Yes NOTES: The film adaptation was just awful and this is probably my least favorite of all Crichton's novels (yes, I have read everything he's penned under his own name...next up are the pseudonym novels).    "

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- June 2016 (30 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 48min. First Viewing Congo is so ridiculous and poorly made that it is honestly pretty fun. If viewed in the right mood, it'll be a fun, "so bad its good" experience. As a film though, its quite bad. "

Movie Reviews (1251-1300) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: There is a memorable movie score. Bruce Campell's scream of death. Tim Curry who don't take the movie serious and has a delicious camp approach to it adding a thick East European accent and playing the role as if he is a modern Bela Lugosi. The Downs: Too serious approach on this movie as the entire story is too absurd. Dylan Walsh is especially weak as a leading man. Joe Pantoliano and Delroy Lindo understood what kind of shitty movie it is and decided even to not have their names "
