The Handmaid's Tale

I wanted to like it, I really did. Bad film, dull & really bad acting.

Many a kids' movie is wasted on kids. [Strains brain to think of good example. Regrets opening mouth.]

This weeks selection for the family Classics of the Cinema night, and still my all-time favourite movie:

Image

Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo

I always notice something new with this one. I never quite appreciated what a daring move it was to put the plot twist in the middle of the story, rather than at the end where convention would say it should go. What we lose in suspense is more than compensated by he psychological complexity Kim Novack's character gains as a result.


Then, for me and Mrs. Shrunk:

Image

The Informant!

A good one. I liked how the true nature of the main character is gradually revealed. I suspect no two people watching it will come to this realization at the same time. Still, I kept wondering throughout how Jason Bourne became such a nebbish.

Vertigo is an odd film. It is so emotionally intense that after three viewings I still can't get my head around it. I suppose that is what makes it a masterpiece; its almost inapproachable majesty. I feel the same about Citizen Kane; these leviathans of cinema.

Yeah, and it does that with such a stupid plot. Every now and then my mind will say, "Seriously, who'd do something like that?" only to get sucked back into the dream-logic of the film. The intensity of the ending never lessens no matter how many times I see it, and despite knowing what's going to happen.

Saw Robin Hood today. It was average in every sense of the word.
The dialogue was a bit ridiculous. None of the characters stuck out. The bad guy didn't have a point to any thing he done. The Commodus type King was uninspired. The "merry men" were the same character multiplied by 4. Russell Crowe was Russell Crowe. Maid Marion tried to play the role of the strong warrior woman but to be honest she looks like the type of woman who can't even darn a sock let alone swing a sword. The battles, lacking the dismemberment, decapitations and blood spraying we've grown used to since Braveheart, are pretty tame and lack any bite and one scene was a complete rip-off of the opening of Saving Private Ryan.
That is, to say, I didn't like it.

Hey Animavore,

I just read an article in a paper about it. It's said Crowe wanted to make Hood's character more dark, rather than the merry, prankster, children's book version. And that the fighting was more like Gladiator.

Which is GOOD, cause I like that darker approach, but did it really suck even on those terms? :(

He was in his shite "dark". He wasn't even "brooding" or even slightly "menacing". He was dull and boring. Like the film.
And the fighting was not like Gladiator. Without the blood and dirt it lacked the visceral carnage of of close combat displayed in its contempories.

Avoid.
