Oh, and one mustn't forget the romantic subplot that doesn't go anywhere important. That is also present.
Charles Laughton is unforgettable.
That spider was terrifying.
Only BRIAN BLESSED!!!!!!! could make the line "Give me the REMOTE CONTROL!!!" unforgettable.
For some reason, this has lost a lot of prestige in the past few years, and I'm not sure why. I still think it is an amazingly fun movie with great direction, acting, and special effects. It captures the light, fun tone that made the comics so iconic in the first place, while also remembering to honor and respect the human core to the story. In short, it's everything that superhero movies should want to be.
Part I was dull, but Part II was pretty fun spectacle.
You just lost it.
Few directors have the emotional honesty to make such a movie work. Rossellini was one of them.
Tense doesn't even begin to describe this.
"Shit just got real" indeed.
One of the best bad movies ever made.
"You're a doorman, okay?! Doorman! Doorman!! Doorman!!!! DOORMAN!!!!"
Not even slightly funny. Peter Sellers was wasted.
Truffaut called it "the most beautiful film in the world." He was right.
Boring middlebrow prestige picture, with the usual cast of big-stars not really doing their best work, hackish direction, and constant Big Speeches about Big Themes. Just "meh" in nearly every aspect.
Why don't more people in Hollywood realize that she is brilliant?!
Oh sure, it's pretty stupid. But oh my, did I have fun watching this.
With this movie, Jessica Chastain is starting to enter "Best actress of her generation" territory.
Did anyone else find that scene where one of the aliens punched Rihanna to be really, REALLY uncomfortable?
It blends light horror, silly spooks, and mood pretty well. A lot of fun, really.
"My goodness, what a hullabaloo!" This is the best line ever written.
This is seriously one of the most stupidly awesome things I have seen in my entire life.
This movie should be executed for crimes against humanity.
Regardless of how you feel about the book, former President Jimmy Carter, or Israeli-Palestinian relations, this movie can teach you a lot about all three - a lot from both sides, too.
I don't care how stupid it is, it's loads of good fun.
How do you properly judge a movie that is sometimes gripping, sometimes dull, and always despicable?
Wow, this really couldn't have been made in any other time period, now could it? So very 1980's.
Underrated teen comedy with a cast made up almost entirely of people who would be famous in just a couple of years.
President Barack Obama's thoughts on 'Black Orpheus': http://www.affrm.com/call-sheet/2012/5/16/president-barack-obama-on-black-orpheus.html
This movie is hilarious. I don't care what anyone says.
This movie is so crazy. I kind of love it.
