A Coen classic!

"I tried to stand up and fly straight, but it wasn't easy with that sumbitch Reagan in the White House. I dunno. They say he's a decent man, so maybe his advisors are confused."

Raising Arizona is now considered a classic gem from currently-renowned filmmaking duo Joel and Ethan Coen. Now that the pair have achieved such success with their crowning jewels such as No Country for Old ... read more

How can you not love this movie? I mean, it's the Cohen Brothers, and they are genius, in my opinion.

This movie is quirky, incredibly funny and weird, and it has all the ingredients a Cohen movie should have, great cinematography, great filming and a ton of quirkiness. It just makes you feel warm inside. Nicholas Cage, I think, was superb, as well as Holly Hunter and all the other ch... read more

A good movie

Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely check it again whenever I have the opportunity. The point is that I always had some rather mixed feelings about this flick (like most of the movies directed by the Coen brothers as a matter of fact). And, apparently, I’m not the only one feeling this way. Indeed, on one hand, it is nowadays regarded as a cult-clas... read more

Movie Reviews (1001-1050) (50 movies items)

" Excellent combination of faces that could have been taken from a weird comic book strip. Nicolas Cage does one of his finer performances and an ex-boxer is shockingly good as a bounty hunter from hell getting some of the best scenes. To appreciate this film you really need to suspend your belief in order to accept not only that a female tough cop marries a multiple offender and an idiot but also decides to steal a baby out of own selfish reasons. I couldn't care less, but love this film. "

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: April (28 movies items)

"Re-watch - April 28th After RKO 281 I wanted to end the night with something fun, and since I hadn't watched Raising Arizona since the day before my daughter was born I figured it was a good choice. I still think every moment of this film is genius and laugh at most of the humor in it. I also know a lot of the dialogue, which makes me wish I could go to a quote-along event some time. Plus Nic Cage gives one of his best performances of his uneven career by disappearing into H.I. McDonnough, and "

" Notes: I always had some rather mixed feelings about this flick (like most of the movies directed by the Coen brothers as a matter of fact). And, apparently, I’m not the only one feeling this way. Indeed, on one hand, it is nowadays regarded as a cult-classic but, on the other hand, some other people like Roger Ebert really didn’t care for the whole thing. In my opinion, it is indeed quite a wild comedy but, that’s also the problem, it is actually so wild and so over-the-top, it makes i"
