Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much from this flick but since I always had a weak spot for Sydney Lumet’s work, I still wanted to check it out. Honestly, I have never been a huge fan of the genre but it is probably one of the worst musicals I have ever seen. At the time, it was the most expensive film musical ever made but it turned out to be a flop and it was universally panned when it was rele... read more

Description: Dorothy, a twenty-four-year-old kindergarten teacher born, raised, and still working in Harlem, is celebrating Thanksgiving with her extended family, but she doesn't seem to be thankful for much in life. She lives a self-imposed sheltered life; she is shy and unfulfilled. Things change for her when she is caught in a snowstorm while c ... (more)

"This really had a lot of potential. The idea is really fantastic and it provides so much material to work with and you could really let your imagination fly. So, what happened? Sidney Lumet as the completely out of place director, Diana Ross looking constipated in probably every scene, set decoration that balances between genius and infernal, phenomenally forgettable music, unbelievably joyless editing and cinematography and a mess of a screenplay written by the man who broke the Bat with his "

"Katsottu 9.7.2012., dvd Michael Jackson Variksenpelättimenä, Diana Ross Dorothyna, ohjaajana Sidney Lumet, tuottajana Rob Cohen joka myöhemmin ohjasi Hurjapäät ja xXx:n, musiikin tuottajana Quincy Jones ja käsikirjoittajana Joel Schumacher. Juurikin niin heikko veto kuin voisi kuvitella. Paria toimivaa kohtausta lukuun ottamatta yli kahden tunnin pituus tuntuu hämmentävän heikosti kirjoitetulta kiirastulelta täynnä mitä-vittua -lavastusta, täysin pieleen mennyttä leikkausta ja t"

"11.1.2012 Ihan kohtalainen näyttämömusikaalin kääntäminen elokuvaksi, joka kuitenkin kärsii eniten tutusta juoneestaan ja pitkästä kestosta. Toki aika hieno ja paikoin erikoinen toteutus tarjosi yllätyksiä matkan varrella. Pääroolien esittäjät tekevät parhaansa, mukana on esim. energinen ja nuori Michael Jackson Variksenpelättimenä. Päälle kaksituntisena tämä kuitenkin tuntuu auttamattoman pitkältä. Kenties muutaman heikomman musiikkinumeron olisi voinut leikata pois, n"

“Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much from this flick but since I always had a weak spot for Sydney Lumet’s work, I still wanted to check it out. Honestly, I have never been a huge fan of the genre but it is probably one of the worst musicals I have ever seen. At the time, it was the most expensive film musical ever made but it turned out to be a flop and it was universally panned when it was released. Personally, I thought the whole thing was terribly misguided and the only interesting thing was to see Michael Jackson as an actor for once and before he became a massive pop star. Indeed, there was actually one scene that I really enjoyed and it was when Michael Jackson was singing solo and displaying his amazing dance moves. In my opinion, there was not much else to enjoy in this flick and” read more
