Billy Wilder goes wild... and hilarious. Some Like it Hot is an exclusively original, stylish and brilliant comedy. Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis were exceptionally perfect for such roles. And hear at their female voices! Fine comedy and a must-see classic. No list of favorite films is complete without a sexual satire, especially if it has the charm and appeal of a sexy Monroe just before the decade of the 50s had ended!

97/100

I know that this movie has been described as an artistic compromise or even a failure, and that Welles wasn't happy with the final cut. Well, it might not be Citizen Kane, but I found it beautifully and innovatively shot, and a moving story besides. The interior of the house alone was such an incredible set! I'd been meaning to rewatch this since moving to Indiana -- tempted to read the book as well.

What a wonderful film. It features great acting and Rob Reiner really has a great touch. He makes this fun for all ages, yet also enjoyable enough for adults.

Everything about this film is memorable, the characters, the quotes...oh the quotes, there are too many to list. And I love the plot device of having Peter Falk reading to Fred Savage, that way, we don't have to suspend are belief that this is or isn't really happening, it's already a made-up story...and remember: "Never go in ...

Yeah, it's pretty corny at times and goes for a few too many obvious jokes. Still, The Princess Bride is charming in its willingness to embrace its own silliness and, at times, it's a transcendent send-up of the fantasy genre. The whole cast seems to be having a blast -particularly Mandy Patinkin in his quest for the six fingered man and the incomparable Andre the Giant.

The Magnificent Ambersons review


"Life and money both behave like loose quicksilver in a nest of cracks." George Minafer (Tim Holt) was born rich and spoiled by his mother Isabel (Dolores Costello) and Major Amberson (Richard Bennett), his grandfather. Uncle Jack (Ray Collins) and his aunt Fanny (Agnes Moorehead) know something that would affect the Amberson's, inventor/entrepreneur Eugene Morgan (Joseph Cotten) and Lucy (Anne Baxter). Detailed character development, acting sensational, nicely scored and superbly written. ...

Not Your Average RomCom


I avoided this movie for the longest time. The title always gave me the idea it was a romcom on the level of 'The Wedding Planner' or one of the other mindless movies made to ruin relationships and prevent women from accepting the reality of what relationships are. When my wife assured me that this was nothing like that, I cautiously trusted her and was greeted with one of my favorite movies of all time. This movie is funny and adventurous. It targets both men and women equally and does it quit...

Cult Classic


The Princess Bride is a true cult classic and works because it does not take itself too seriously. The sword fights are comical for their lack of blood and gore and the dialogue is often funny and hokey. Regardless, the actors fill their roles perfectly and the narrative flows nicely as a story being told be a grandfather to his grandson. The Princess Bride is not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, but it is certainly an enjoyable film that is worth watching.

"As you wish",


When you mix pirates, sword wielding Spaniards, good-natured giants, evil masterminds, six-fingered counts, and the Cliffs of Despair what do you get?

The main story is in fact a story within a story; a grandfather, played by Peter 'Columbo' Falk, visits his sick grandson Fred Savage and reads him a tale about a young princess, Buttercup (Robin Wright) and her servant Wesley, played to perfection by Cary Elwes. We see her treating him quite heartlessly but as time goes on, we see her fall in...

"The Princess Bride" by Yojimbo


This charming post-modern fairytale was adapted by William Goldman from his own book, and it's the witty script crammed with knowing humour and likeable characters that makes it. Technically, it really isn't that great; the direction from Rob Reiner is flat and lacklustre as he clearly has no idea how to handle action. The score is also appalling; it sounds like someone was just making it up as they went on an 80s home organ. But there are so many funny, quotable lines and fun characters it har...

"Some Like It Hot" by Yojimbo


A pair of musicians witness a mob execution and so go into hiding disguised as women in an all girl band in Florida. Billy Wilder made his name making a variety of black hearted satires, but here we find him at his least cynical. It's one of those types of film they just don't make any more as the brilliant double act of womanising cad Curtis and sidekick Lemmon see how the other half live. Their bickering and banter obviously owes a lot to Hope and Crosby and the gender swap is done with real ...
