This is my all-time favorite movie & has been since its release. Very funny dialogue, great cast, a suitable degree of action, touches of drama, and a believable rekindling of romance. I have not met a person who did not enjoy viewing this film (believe me, I've pointedly asked many folks due to my affection for it). Even though I was class of '89 the content still played well to my demographic.
Mention of this berry makes me giddy. Nice topic photo here! As a child I told my mom if I would marry a raspberry if I could. I absolutely love them above all else. Learned to make raspberry pie at an early age due to this. In my thirties, I learned to make preserves & went on a raspberry jam binge. Didn't curb my habit of consuming huge volumes of fresh/frozen raspberries in haste.
A cinematic 80's music video that captured a reactionary time in pop culture. There's the peachy-keen romantic optimism of new wave synthesizer music, the bad-ass greaser look of the artists, all mixed with a comic book styling of escapist triumph over ambiguous others (gearheads, presumably heavy metal listeners). Obvious nod to the Altered States movie ending provides an elevated read on it all.
Pioneers of the "British Comedy" genre, this troupe blazed trails well off the showbiz roadmap. Innovative in the use of irony, black humour & animated sequences while reveling in the stomping of absurd/uptight norms. Rewarded with a worldwide posse of fans that can quote LENGTHY dialogue by heart more than 40 years later.
Cons: revisionist of history, routines are still politically incorrect, lol
The best natural gelato flavour I've tasted is blood orange, even though I can't stand the actual fruit but wow it works here! A close second is the lemon flavour (think lemonade in a cone)
Cons: Truly different flavours being sold with the same name at competing gelato shops; technically not ice cream - it's only 5% dairy (just enough for a creamy texture) & tons more sugar (to avoid it melting)
I certainly agree with others that it's one of the greatest cheeses you'll taste in France...or Quebec, or the world for that matter.
Cons: Not for you if you don't like stinky cheeses (I love it and I don't like seeing various colours of mold in my dairy); goes bad very quickly when not refrigerated well; almost impossible to slice due to thickness of rind vs. softness of cheese.
The perfect movie to make you forget you're watching subtitles. It has fun action, with unexpected drama blended in, and a unique visual style. You'll always remember this viewer experience as it kind of takes your breath away with its relentless pace. Truly a breakthrough performance for Franka Potente. This flim, along with Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon & Amelie, elevated foreign films forever.
Cinematic excellence. Will surprise you as it draws out empathetic feelings you've never experienced toward a filmed character. Colin Firth rises to the herculean task of galling you with his portrayal of "an historical figure overcoming his impediment" (yes, it sounds boring as hell on paper). If you dislike Mr. Firth's roles then see it instead for a supporting cast who propel this tale upwards.
