Rating History

Private Lives (Vidas privadas)
22 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The Rotten Tomatoes info on this film doesn't match the actual movie. Gael Garcia Bernal is good as always, but the rest of the film is dull.

The Stranger
The Stranger (2010)

*1/2 (out of four)

Maybe the film should have been called "The Absent-Minded Stranger" since both it's lead character and the script seems to be forgetting something, namely a coherant plot and believable characters.

Wrestling superstar Steve Austin stars as a man on the run from the Seattle FBI. His problem is he doesn't know why he's on the run. He just is. Naturally he succuessfully kicks some butt while he's moving from place to place and a sexy female doctor is trying to help him.

The film is pretty empty headed and the script is very disjointed. As the FBI Agent, poor Adam Beach is at least working as an actor, but this is a far cry from his great performances years ago in films like "Smoke Signals" and "Flags of Our Fathers". Austin doesn't fair too well either. His silly character keeps forgetting everything that has just happened. He asks "Who are you?" so much that he was beginning to sound like the three Willy Brothers from "Home on the Range".

I think maybe Austin would be better suited to sticking with something that is a little better scripted...like his wrestling shows.

The Big Broadcast of 1937

★★★ (out of four)

A light and fast paced comedy that nearly misses as a whole. The perfect comedic timings of its cast, however, carries it through, even when it shouldn't. With the like of Jack Benny, George Burns, Gracie Allen, Ray Milland, and Martha Raye, the plot fades away, but the actors all stay immensely watchable.

Jack Benny plays Jack Carson. He is running a radio station. His current goal is to please a new rich sponser. Mr. and Mrs. Platt (Burns & Allen) are sinking their golf ball business funds into the station, but they demand some great performances.

Carson then attracts a major talent, but then goes out on a limb with an unproven small town radio announcer. She becomes a smash, even bigger than the main attraction.

There are a bunch of nice musical numbers and the host of old radio personalities are fun. The plot is not so memorable...and what is it with movies of that era being obsessed with the world of entertainment?
