Pinhole Movie Reviews

U Turn by tincolor

Sean Penn is on his way to California to deliver a belated loan payment. But on the way his car breaks down in a small town in Arizona, inhabited by famous actors, each in various degrees of trouble, each preventing Sean Penn’s from getting on his way. Even though some of the characters are incredibly annoying, and the unjustness of Sean Penn’s situation drove me crazy, I didn’t hate the film for some reason, I guess I kinda liked it, actually.Watchable.


Cape Fear (1991) by tincolor

After 14 years in prison, Robert De Niro is free and has a bone to pick with his defense lawyer Nick Nolte. This movie is so excellent in so many ways it’s hard to know where to start. But at the same time, it really limits its broader appeal by adhering so strictly to a neo-noir style. Brian de Palma fans amass! This is the stuff you crave! Worth watching if you like noir films, a low worth checking out for everyone else.

The brutal cage fighting known as “Mixed Martial Arts” finally gets the Karate Kid treatment.  The production values are fairly low and the story is totally unoriginal (long lost brothers fighting in the same tournament? What are the odds?!) But the fight scenes are visceral and exciting — and Nick Nolte makes a very believable old drunk dad.  Watchable.
