Movie Reviews

Combustible Celluloid - 9/10 by Jeffrey M. AndersonThis 70-minute classic from Monogram Studios is the epitome of what they call "lean and mean."
TIME Magazine - 7/10 by James AgeeA tough, tight, tense, tricky little melodrama.
User Review - 10/10 by Sylvester EOne of my favourite Gangster Movies it shows that many Gangsters were regular Citizens who had Bad Luck and get to be delinquent and this is was the Reason they took the Way of a Gangster what had he should do the Waitress doesen't accept a Check
User Review - 8/10 by Private ULawrence Tierney couldn't have asked for a better debut, and given the fact that it was made just ten years after Dillinger's death, this movie couldn't be any more inspired as to the nature of its story. The only problem with 'Dillinger' is that amidst its exquisite style, there is not a single major shootout sequence. Aside from the big run-in at Little Bohemia, there were numerous confrontations between Dillinger's gang and the police, but this film doesn't take advantage of any of the facts; it just uses a real-life story to create a "bad guy" character who loves to run, and apparently knows nothing other than how to piss off law enforcement. I guess in the 40s cinema, this was more acceptable, but the original 'Scarface' came before this one, and it was far more visceral
User Review - 8/10 by Zoran SIt has some cheesy moments, such as when Dillinger magically escapes from jail by carving a wooden gun and painting it black with shoe polish. Still, it's a short, effective, and unsentimental film.
User Review - 8/10 by Jim EA very good movie. I think it deserves more recognition than it gets. It's short and sweet, has no big flaws, and is entertaining from start to finish.
User Review - 8/10 by Flike SThe first official film made on John Dillinger, Public Enemy #1. Although, I am reading that the smoke bomb bank robbery scene was actually spliced in directly from the 1937 film "You Only Live Once". So we are told a short and brief story of Dillinger, in only 70 mins. A very smart montage was used to accelerate the "coming up" phase of the story, as is used in so many other gangster flicks. We are given insight into the mind of Dillinger, and what made him tick, so to speak. He was driven by his greed, and love for women. We learn how ruthless he was, and how his audacity took him to the top, and essentially brought him back down. A very primitively shot film, but with great intent, and solid acting from Lawrence Tierney as Dillinger. A very dark film, naturally, and has been debated whether or not deserves the title of 'noir'. Regardless, I say it's a damn fine American classic, that should be in any moviehead's repertoire.
User Review - 8/10 by James H:fresh: 6/10 - Dillinger (1945): I picked up the Film Noir classic box set vol. 2 yesterday and this was the first one I popped into the ol' DVD player. I gotta say I felt a little gipped. Not that it was bad, but I didn't really feel that it did justice to the story of John Dillinger. Character development was non-existent, the story was choppy, and hell, I just wasn't into it from beginning to end. All that said, it was still an entertaining little noir. See it if you have an interest in the man, John Dillinger, or if you're a noir nut like myself. :fresh: 7/10 - eXistenZ (1999): David Cronenberg is one of the best filmmakers working today. Frankly, this isn't his best. In fact, it's far from it, but that aside, it's still one of his most fucked up, and if you're familiar with his work, then you know that's saying something. The story milks its "mystery" for all it's worth, and then, just when any other filmmaker would've rounded it up with a nice, neat ending, Cronenberg sticks his madman cock in your ear and fucks your skull out. Definitely worth the trip. :fresh: 8/10 - Batman Begins (2005): Aside from a few qualms I have with the picture, this is the perfect Batman movie. Firstly and lastly - the editing. I know the first few fights were supposed to be "mysterious", and show Batman doing his 'ninja whut' thing, but there were times when it felt like the editors were masturbating with the celluloid and lubing up with a handful of razor blades. Other than that and a couple of plot points I felt stuck out like sore thumbs, I left the the theatre totally satisfied with how the picture turned out. The acting was top notch across the board, the story was sweeping, incredible and strangely believable, and the writing was the best I've ever heard in a "superhero" movie. One of the best of 2005, no question! :fresh: 9/10 - Rushmore (1997): Wes Anderson's magnum opus. Which is saying something, because I adored the Life Aquatic and the Royal Tenenbaums. From beginning to end Rushmore is one of the most inventive, quirky and intelligent comedies you're likely to find. Max Fischer, played to perfection by Jason Schwartzman, is the best high school character since Ferris Bueller and Bill Murray, as usual, is perfect as the depressed and self loathing Herman Blume. One of my favorite movies of all time. :fresh: 10/10 - Lost in Translation (2003): I was big into the Matrix. Even the sequels. So when the Matrix Revolutions and Lost in Translation, which I didn't have much interest in, came to the cheap, double bill theatre I was amped to go. Lost in Translation was playing first, and I figured I'd probably at least enjoy it. By the end of the night, I'd forgotten what the second movie was. Lost in Translation is one of the most original, funny and heartfelt movies to come out in years. The two leads are spectacular (Can you tell I like Bill Murray?) and Sophia Coppola directs with such passion and spectacular imagery, that she proved to me without a doubt she is her father's daughter. God knows I'm a big Lord of the Rings fan, but Lost in Translation was my favorite movie of 2003.
User Review - 8/10 by Sam NAn original of the movie Public Enemies! Great great vision !
User Review - 6/10 by Martin TFrom the title you can tell this is more a straight gangster movie than a true noir. It's cheap and quick and dirty, and quite a bit of gritty fun. But there's nothing superlative about it at all, it's pretty standard stuff. Lawrence Tierney is the only noteworthy aspect, intimidating and forceful in his screen debut. A few giddily enjoyable touches, such as the amusingly ironic ending... nothing to write home about, though.
