Trolls World Tour Alluc (2020)

Alluc Trolls World Tour
I want to applaud Nandita Das to have chosen a complex theme—the aftermath of the 2002 Gujarat riots—as her directorial debut. Her heart is in the right place but the film as a narrative does not work for me.
The four or five story tracks, all dealing with one or other aspect of the Gujarat riots, muddle the flow of the narrative. The problem is not with the editing or how the sequences segue into each other but with the choice of the stories and their episodic nature. Each story seems to be a stand alone piece. As the narrative progresses, they all hurtle towards climaxes of their own, frittering away the combined tension (and its resolution) that could have resulted had they all come to a confluence. Would that be too tricky or clichéd (a la Priyadarshan)? That is certainly debatable.
The tracks themselves are fascinating on their own. I loved the Naseeruddin Shah/Raghuvir Yadav track. Naseer plays the Muslim musician's character with so much depth and dignity. The portrayal was so poignant (especially the conclusion where Naseer finally admits: Music does not have the power to transcend such great communal hatred). To which Yadav's character, the ever so scared and paranoid Muslim assistant, says: If you start thinking like this, what hope is there for people like me?
While watching the film, I was as aghast as Naseer's character was when we find out that Wali Dakhni's grave had been razed and a road has been built on that ground by the government of Gujarat. If Wali, a part of our history and heritage, is not important in India, then what place insignificant people like me have in a modern India?
The Deepti Naval/Paresh Rawal track is saved by the small boy whose haunting eyes ask all viewers at the end of the movie: what wrong did I do? Why is my present pathetic and future bleak? Why am I in a ghetto? Gosh, who can stand those innocent searching eyes?
The Tisca Chopra/Sanjay Suri track (the use of a neutral name Samir in a communally charged city, Hindu Muslim marriage) was interesting. What Samir does at the end really required a lot of balls. In real life, as a Muslim, it would be hard for me to admit what he admitted.
The auto-rickshaw driver and his wife's track is perhaps the most muddled one. So many things happen to them on screen and yet their characters are not that well developed. The director also shows a little weakness in executing some scenes in this episode.
Firaaq means separation in Urdu. The film shows the separation of the two communities—Hindus and Muslims in Gujarat. Where are the villains who are creating this communal rift, who control the mechanics of the flow of hatred in the birthplace of Gandhi? The film does not ask this question and that perhaps has enfeebled this entire project. But, honestly, I can't even blame Nandita for not taking this route to tell her story. Till today, even after the Tehelka expose, the Godhra incident remains an unsolved mystery and many of the perpetrators of the Gujarat communal carnage still remain unpunished. www.zafaranjum.com www.dreamink.blogspot.com

Alluc Ordinary Love
The September Issue is a superficial look into the making of the September 2007 issue of Vogue. Many of the shots consist of various photographers, art directors and members of the editorial staff behaving in a groveling and subservient way around editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. The one exception is stylist Grace Coddington, a confident and gifted woman who does superb creative work and isn't afraid to stand up for herself. Her work really is the backbone of the magazine. Once she leaves, Vogue is on a fast ride downhill. Wintour's insights, as she looks at and discusses potential fashion spreads, seem fairly prosaic. She must have gotten the job by game-playing and the usual machinations of the business world. Outside of standing back somewhat and letting Coddington do her work, I don't see what she contributes to the magazine except for making her staff feel compulsively insecure. I enjoyed the few scenes that show her with her twenty-something daughter, who wants to be a lawyer. She clearly has the ability to "get" to Wintour that no one else in the film does. Good for her. Wintour talks about her father and siblings, but neglects to mention her American mother, an interesting omission. Wintour is a lonely character, in a way. There's a revealing scene of her in the back of a town car clutching a Starbucks coffee and staring straight ahead. She's off in her own world most of the time.
As is to be expected, no one on the Vogue staff actually wears the outlandish clothing featured in the magazine. Wintour wears flattering silk dresses, Coddington dresses in various frumpy black outfits and the staff and photographers wear practical work clothes. The exception is Leon Talley, the only member of the staff who truly buys into the fashion myth. Since Wintour reveals so little of herself and the filmmaker is as deferential to her as the rest of her intimidated staff, ultimately "The September Issue" is an elegantly made film with no emotional heart.

Alluc Brahms: The Boy II
Tom Trimble (Dennis Dugan) is an oddball scientist for NASA. Very clever but somewhat clumsy, he builds a robot named Hermes who looks just like him. Its NASA's wish to send Hermes on an experimental flight where, if all goes as planned, the rocket will travel faster than light and go back to the days of Camelot. However, as Tom is readying Hermes for the journey, the rocket blasts off and both of them go back in time. Once there, a pretty maid name Alisande takes Tom to see King Arthur while Hermes stays with the ship. Mordred (Jim Dale) takes an instant disliking to Tom but the young scientist captivates the King with tales of the history of the world, including his own time period. However, after a long listen, the King sends him to the dungeon anyway. It'll be up to Hermes to rescue Tom and change the King's view in their favor. In addition, can Alisande truly prefer Hermes to Tom himself? This funny take on Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court is a pleasure to watch. Dugan is quite a charming and kooky performer and rest of the cast is great. Kids and families will love the re- created Camelot's scenery and costumes as well as the new gadgets Tom brings with him. No, its not the greatest thing since sliced bread but it is bound to bring smiles to young and old faces!

Underwater Alluc (2020)
Release: January 10, 2020
Much as I love Patlabor the OAV and TV series, I found this film too be too slow moving at times and all too serious. The quality of animation was slightly above the OAV's and the character designs also kept closely to the OAV (as opposed to the more mature look in P2).
As I understood the plot, a mysterious hacker introduced a virus into the operating system (called H.O.S. or Hyper Operating System) for ALL labors in Japan. This virus could cause unmanned units to go beserk, and is activated by a unique ultra-sound frequency created at random by the gusty winds that blow across the Tokyo skyline.
Tied in to all this is the newly completed tower of the Babylon Project to reclaim land in the Tokyo bay. Apparently the tower is a giant tuning fork which could give the doomsday signal when a great storm hits the bay.
All this sounds intriguing, but it takes way too long for the plot to advance to a coherent stage. There is hardly any action save for the last 20 minutes or so. Most of all, I missed the great dialogue and humour in the video and TV series.

Alluc Impractical Jokers: The Movie
One of the secrets of making a movie that will captivate audiences is showing them something in a way they have never seen it before. Run Wrake's Rabbit takes elementary school reader illustrations and animates them in a bizarre story of greed.
Although the main theme of Rabbit is somewhat ambiguous, and the story veers into the strange, the unusual and effective animation style, using illustrations from grammar school readers, is visionary. The fact that the Dick and Jane characters in the film were amoral and venal was a strong counterpoint to their innocent origins.
If the film has a weakness, it is that the ending is ambiguous. What lesson is the reader to draw from the ending? That the whims of the gods (here seen as the cackling golden idol) are not to be trifled with? That the riches the gods seem to bestow can easily be taken away? The last third of the picture, where Dick and Jane simply try to capitalize on their apparent windfall, is the weakest part of the narrative.
Nonetheless, this film has a look and feel like no other I have seen in a long time. Strongly recommended.

Alluc Fantasy Island
In a film seemingly not supervised by a director, two California college roommates, Chuck (Tate Donovan) and Wally (Grant Heslov) take part in a vapid adventure obviously targeted at a barely pubescent audience. Chuck has an opportunity of which he has dreamed, to work for a large corporation where he will begin at $60000 per year, if he will complete a pre-employment assignment for the CEO (Robert Stack), a friend of Chuck's father. His duty is to deliver an expensive new Porsche, a birthday gift to the CEO's daughter in Lake Tahoe, but naturally complications occur due to Wally, the irresponsible friend of Chuck. Wally convinces Chuck to first utilize the Porsche as "bikini bait" in San Diego, where there is coincidentally a scheduled beauty pageant, and where the car is stolen. The manipulation of Chuck by Wally makes little sense throughout this affair, but sensible behaviour is not readily found within the script, as it would only interfere with pratfalls and bathing suit competitions. It is enough to mention, as ever with this type of film, a providential solution is found for personal relationship problems and that no one seems to mind if logic vanishes along the way. A payday is given to veterans Stack, Leslie Nielsen and Elizabeth Ashley, all of whom essentially create their roles, and a bright spot is a performance by funnyman Robert Klein, with his usual off-kilter derelict, in this instance an aging surfer. Poorly written and edited, this picture can yet claim freedom from any mean-spirited component, its most offensive facet being that the viewing of it is fundamentally a waste of time.

Alluc Escape from Pretoria
When I decided to write a review of Rio Lobo, I had every expectation of visiting the website and finding that the movie's weighted average was a 2.5. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it's a 7.5, and that's actually a half-point higher than my own score. To cut to the chase: I liked Rio Lobo.
It was fashionable in 1970 to trash Rio Lobo because (a) it was the supposedly feeble, last effort of a great director, Howard Hawks, who had supposedly lost interest in the picture; (b) it was too derivative of Rio Bravo and El Dorado; (c) the Duke was too old to play the part of a cavalry colonel (to say nothing of being too big; the average cavalryman in the Civil War was 5'7" and 135 lbs.); (d) the supporting cast was pathetic; (e) the production values were poor; and (f) the movie paled in comparison to Little Big Man, which was released at the same time. Much of the criticism was true. But, it was fun to watch, anyway.
Ford had his cavalry trilogy, and Hawks had his Rio trilogy, and the Duke was in all six of them. The Ford set is a cut above the Hawks set, but all six films are worth watching. Ford was working with Wayne (1947-50) at a time when Wayne's acting ability was still very much in question. And Ford succeeded on every level, especially in She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, where the character development of Capt. Nathan Brittles (Wayne) is nothing but sheer genius. Hawks, on the other hand, had (by 1959, in Rio Bravo) a very established star, and was thereby free to dwell more on story telling than he was on character development. Besides, with those amazing exteriors, the cinemagography alone was worth the cost of admission to all six pictures.
The Duke was too old to play a romantic lead in this picture (but so was Cary Grant in his last picture, Walk, Don't Run, when he, too, was about 63 years-old.) The fact that he was not a "threat" to O'Neill's character (in those pre-Viagra days) was nothing more than an extension of the persona the Duke captured the year before in True Grit, and would continue to build on in such films as The Cowboys and The Shootist. Let's face it: Wayne was becoming a likeable old coot.
Hawks was, according to reports, disappointed in Jennifer O'Neill, and by the last reel, her part has been cut in favor of Sherry Lansing's part. (Hawks did the same thing to John Ireland's part in Red River, 30 years earlier.) Actually, O'Neill didn't do THAT bad. My problem with her is that she couldn't decide whether she would play her part as the New York high-fashion model that she was, or as Kim Darby reprising her role in True Grit. At times, O'Neill's semi-imitation of Darby gets on one's nerves.
And, Hawks was rightfully disappointed in the desultory performances of the supporting cast, with the exception of Lansing and Jack Elam. The Confederate cavalry captain: He might as well have been created by computer graphics, for all the vitality he brings to the role. But, take a look at the stock players, including Hank Worden ("Old Mose" in The Searchers) and Jim Davis (Jock Ewing of Dallas fame). These are virtually cameos, if not walk-on parts, but they are effective.
I do not think Hawks gave up on this film, at least, not to the extent that people have claimed. Yakima Canutt ably handled the second unit, and the train hijacking he directed (with Hawks' help) was unusual and exciting; the cinematography, but for the occasional lighting or filtering error, was acceptable; and the editing was fairly crisp. The interior sets were shabby, that is true.
But what carries the picture is the wonderful dialogue, and Wayne. The dialogue is "pure Hawks": spare, unambiguous, natural, and realistic. Wayne's onscreen personal is so great, and his presence so magnificent, that all of the films shortcomings are rendered irrelevant.
Thank you, Mr. Hawks. Well done.

Alluc Bad Boys for Life
Beautiful holiday tale of a Marine family, struggling as any typical family does to get along with each other let alone the world at large. Just about everybody in the cast is an unknown or at least with only a few movies (or TV shows) under their belt, including the director, Sheri Le Mon. The only easily recognizable character is "George", their grumpy next door neighbor, who happens to be Sherman Hemsley (aka George) of The Jefferson's fame.
None the less, everybody does a great job of not "over acting" (less is more), and brings a strong story of family realizing there are more important things than themselves, no matter their age, whether immediate or extended, in their lives.
I laughed often at how accurately the internal family squabbles were played, especially between the crooked halo of the youngest daughter and the older two children (the scene with the kids working on the neighbors flower bed was perfect).
Bridgette Potts (playing Grace Harrington) did a wonderful job as the teenage daughter, caught up in all the "normal" teenage dramas (actually, at their worse the kids were pretty well behaved), yet coming around when a family member, who couldn't fend for himself, needed help. Grace and her friends hard work brings everybody together and touches the hearts of all around them. A lot of detail was given to the human interactions and I felt they were all believable.
And then there is Semper (as in Semper Fi), their lovable golden retriever (who doesn't seem to have his name in the cast of characters in IMDb what's up with that?!), who brings family and friends together perfectly playing his part as a dog!
Being a Marine myself and a lifelong dog lover, this gentle story of how animals can tie family, friends and community together, is a beautiful, gently stated holiday special which looks at the world through unfettered eyes and is suitable for any family member.

Alluc The Call of the Wild
I really enjoyed Mulan (the first movie). I went to buy a copy for my little girl recently and found that it was cheaper to buy it WITH Mulan II rather than on its own...so I purchased both together. Mulan II was extremely disappointing. The storyline itself is extremely dark. In Mulan (the original), she runs off to protect her family and father from having to go to war. So, she broke the cultural norms of her day for a virtuous reason. She sacrificed herself and was willing to face the consequences. In Mulan II, the emperor's daughters have sworn (freely) to marry the neighborings kingdom's princes in order to avoid war. Mulan finds this very difficult to accept because she can not understand how this can be a free choice. In the end, the princesses run off with their guards (for true love..they like the same food, they like each other's eyes...really deep stuff). The plot seems to teach kids that following your own wants over the needs of others is fine and lying and manipulating to get there are okay too. Needless to say, I cut up my copy (could not even give it to Salvation Army) Selling Mulan and Mulan II for less than Mulan alone makes perfect sense. Mulan II cheapens the original Mulan. Shame on Disney.

Alluc Military Wives
A campy horror show about an insurance salesman who is befriended by a business man that has a ten year old secret. The businessman sends the insurance man to a headhunter to find a better job and that job entails other work as assigned. The salesman spends the majority of the movie trying to understand why strange things are happening to him and winds up actually fulfilling his job function much to the dismay of the businessman who suffers for a job well done. The camera work and direction was surprisingly good. The dialog was austere and functional with a few giggles. The acting was pretty good. The special effects were in league with the films budget. The movie cover was nicely done and was one of the major reasons I picked up the DVD.

This was a delightful presentation. Hemo (blood) as a Greek god was so well played by the animation with vanity, arrogance, snobbish superiority and innocent wonder. The quote (or scene) I recall vividly is when Hemo tires of "all this plumbing ... you haven't learned my secrets at all" and threatens to storm out, the Scientist answers him in a single word "Thalassa" -- salt water which horrifies the Fiction Writer but mollifies Hemo and segues so neatly into the chemical aspects of blood.
Such a splendid blend of entertainment and information make this a classic as fresh and engrossing today as the day it was released. Stimulating the interest and imagination is fundamental to teaching kids to love learning.

This show humorously displays how many households were in the 1970s with brutal honesty. Yes, there are a layers of the typical sarcasm and extremism inherent to these types of comedies, but it really captures the stress, angst, and dysfunctionality of that era. We were no longer 'sixties children', the Beatles had broken up, and the Viet Nam war was finally winding down. We didn't have a direction or big cause, but we still did not trust our parents and we thought we knew a lot more than them. While my own household was certainly not as extreme as this, I had friend's whose houses were not far from it. What works well is that underneath the surface stress with F bombs being volleyed back and forth, Kevin remembers his idyllic childhood and remembers that he really loves his parents as well - no matter how much he might truly hate them at the moment. Kudos to the writing staff for adding that important aspect of humanity.
The music is absolutely brilliant. These guys have truly grasped the overly gaudy and hoity toity Progressive Rock movement in a way that is both respectful yet completely tongue-in-cheek. This was the style of music we listened to - because it was so much more complicated and sophisticated than everything else out there. The Court of the Elfin King is such a humorous homage to King Crimson and related bands that I had to bust out laughing. ROTFLMAO - or whatever that is! It indicates the writers truly understand the intricacies of the genre, but are able to look back at it with a sarcastic eye. Really impressive.
I am sure some people will find the portrayal of African Americans as offensive, the paranoia and misunderstanding displayed by the 'crackers' is unfortunately right on the money for the era. This is the time of 'forced busing' - and there was nothing so segregating than forcing people together who were not interested in integration - on both sides. I suspect that in the same way people get upset about the use of the N word in Taratino's projects, people may get upset of how racial tensions are displayed here. However, these are both depicting real sentiments and real behavior - and pretending they did not exist is ever-so-lightly akin to discounting the holocaust. Pretending things did not exist is not the correct way to overcome them.
This show taps into the problems and challenges of the seventies, and displays them in a comedic yet heartfelt manner. Certainly not for everyone - and certainly not a 'family' show - but for the appropriate demographics, this show is awesome!

Conrad Glover writes, directs and stars in this tale of crime. A couple of not too bright thugs, Ray(Glover)and Dice(Christopher Farmer)are desperate for cash and decide to kidnap two rich girls, Sonia(Raine Brown)and Charisse(Nicholl Jones), figuring they could demand a high-dollar ransom. With an accomplice, ex-con Paco(Jaime Velez), the trio hide the girls in a secluded cabin in the woods. Where else? One of the girls is so cocky, she has the kidnappers paranoid. Wondering about getting caught or even being saved takes a backseat, when it becomes obvious there is an evil force that thinks it owns the woods. To be exact, it makes it well known that intruders are not welcome. Mediocre horror at best. Filmed in New Jersey and the R rating must come from the subject matter. Also in the cast: Mandy Beisel, Ray Breen, Rick Pascal and Robin Duford.

Alluc Little Women
The following may contain some spoilers...be advised.
I have recently completed watching every season of the Ranma 1/2 anime, including the movies, OAV's and all of the Manga.
I enjoyed this movie to a point. One aspect I found as a let down, there really isn't any real comedy in this one. While there are points at comedy, Suon & Genma provide some, and the "chase scene" (Our group trying to chase Kirin's Blimp with a small dingy, as an example). I won't give way the main plot, which is a sort of a comic device of why Happôsai did what he did. Yet in all it seems the movie tries to take a serious look..with a serious plot, something that was rarely done in the series. Which is probably why most "Ranma 1/2" fans don't like it all that much.
On it's own, the story holds up. If you have not seen any of the anime after Season 3, you may just enjoy this one. If you have seen Seasons 4-7, you will find a lot of what this movie is about is just part of a rehashed storyline that was over done in the anime. One aspect that most "Ranma 1/2" fans have a problem with was the "Akane as the damsel-in-distress" story plots. To many this was over done, and at one point, while Akane still has a fiery temper and can hold her own in a fight, she is shown in more ways to be less of a fighter...or needs help...or simply waits for Ranma to show up. Something she blatantly states to Kirin almost word for word after she is kidnapped and told she will be his bride.
However, we do see Ranma starting to come out of his shell about his feelings for Akane. Backed up by Kirin's last words to Ranma before he leaves.
It's not the best of the series. But it can hold it's own.
The opening sequence is a nice touch, featuring all, or nearly all, of the reoccurring characters from the series. Another nice touch was the background cell paintings. If you watch the series, then this movie...you can immediately see a difference in the background. It is much more detailed, especially the Tendo home, and along the streets as Female Ranma chases Happôsai. It gives the area in which the characters live much more depth and a nice rich color.

Alluc I Still Believe
The beginning handful of episodes showed promise, but the writing has galloped downhill into a swamp of snark and sarcasm and cliché.
The females tend to be emotionally immature sexual aggressors without warmth or empathy...almost interchangeable. I think we must have a lot of male writers on the staff who are of the type who do not interact comfortably with women In Real Life. The females, for the most part, are Mean Girls.
For some reason, the show's stylists have almost all the women with straight long hair, uniformly un-styled. There is a sameness to their looks as well as their personalities.
"Alice" is identified as a "nerd" by (obviously nerdy) heavy black glasses frames. Her short stature and matronly bosom are unflatteringly dressed in tight-waisted full-skirted dresses that bell out, with lots of pleated fabric. This is an unkind look for her.
The male lead stutters every other word, avoiding eye contact. Now Hugh Grant can get away with this, as he is a better actor, but in our lead actor, it seems painfully mannered. The character has become as insufferable as Louis in Rice's Vampire Chronicles. As he is now believed about the existence of an alternative world, there is no reason for his aura of general mopiness. He seems to pity himself more than we can.
The dialogue is inane and does little to reveal character or move the story forward; just expository and unnatural speechlets. Everyone is dreadfully earnest. The storytelling is disjointed. The dialogue is painful and tries too hard to be hip. We know how that generally works out. The characters all seem to be unwilling or unable to express themselves directly. (Snark, simper, sigh, eyeroll, insert linguistic meme here...)
Julia, The Beast, and Eliot are the characters of interest here. I feel for the actors who are portraying them, stranded in this morass.
My level of disappointment is great, as the books are rich with material. They deserve better treatment than this bad high school play.

Without a doubt one of the all-time single most sublimely shoddy'n'stupid shot-in-the-Phillippines low-budget kung-fu gore/horror/zombie/cannibal cheesy Grade Z exploitation trash masterpieces to ever ooze its divinely dopey way onto celluloid.
A bunch of evil, leering, impishly demented killer monks led by the always delightful Vic Diaz reside in seclusion on a remote island and devour the flesh of beautiful young women in order to successfully gain immortality. A low-rent pleasure cruise ship skippered by cranky captain Cameron Mitchell gets attacked by the monks' nefarious white slavery ring partners-in-crime; said ring is actually led by a chubby former Nazi who comes complete with a Hitler mustache and an atrocious heavy German accent. Fortunately, a majority of the ship's survivors are these obnoxiously swaggering macho meathead martial arts experts and their equally proficient at karate bimbo girlfriends. Alas, the monks are a most resourceful lot; they resurrect their vicious long dead ancestors from beyond the grave (the zombies are clearly these thankless miserable extras sporting dirty tattered rags and two-cent Halloween schlock shop gray greasepaint make-up!), thereby allowing for lots of ridiculous and hence seriously smoking the living vs. the undead a**-stomping mano-to-mano physical confrontation action.
Yeah, this deliciously dumb darling's every bit as lovably ludicrous as the above synopsis suggests -- and all the better for it, man. I mean, any cheerfully crass picture that boasts perennial dreck flick favorites Vic Diaz and Cameron Mitchell in the cast, lovely actresses Jillian Kessner and Jennifer Holmes in feisty femme roles, features the expected mondo destructo bar fight scene (this one even has an especially luscious stripper in it!), a gory decapitation at the very start of the film (always a good way to start a movie), a clip from "Piranha," a guy putting his foot through the windshield of a speeding automobile in strenuous slow motion, and a wonderfully sleazy and protracted party orgy scene that's highlighted by topless cameos from the foxy Camille Keaton of "I Spit on Your Grave" infamy and the adorable, perpetually vacuous Valley Girl airhead supreme Jewel Shepard of "The Return of the Living Dead" fame all crammed together into an enthusiastically vibrant and scroungy anything-goes wild grind-house package certainly counts as a bona fide four-star jaw-dropping classic of exceptional drive-in entertainment.

Alluc The Gentlemen
Oscar-nominated star Randy Quaid (The Last Detail) won a Golden Globe for this performance, and it was an easy one to hand out. Quaid WAS LBJ. There was no doubt about it. He had the character nailed and gave such a good performance that you almost felt you were watching a documentary.
Before Barack Obama was born, and before he ever thought about giving a speech on the Two Americas, LBJ was fighting for legislation (1960 Civil Rights Act) to help end the fact that there were two Americas -- and he actually used those words. Four years later (after this movie) he passed the historic Civil Rights acts of 1964 and 1965, while he was President. Lincoln may have freed the slaves to end a war, but LBJ was responsible for truly giving the Black Americans their full rights, and moving us toward the end of the Two Americas.
For those that do not know the story of LB and how he was the most powerful and successful Congressman ever in the history of the US, and how he was the person who made Kennedy's dreams a reality, this is an excellent film to find out.
Patti LuPone was the best of a lot of stars that contributed to this movie. She played Lady Bird to a T. I just hope I will one day see her performance of Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street in Concert.
