It received mixed critical reviews. Critic Pauline Kael, who for years had been critical of Brooks, said: The film garnered international publicity by featuring a controversial song on its soundtrack — " To Be or Not to Be The Hitler Rap — satirizing German society in the s with Brooks playing Hitler.
The second movie Brooks directed in the s came in in the form of Spaceballsa parody of science fictionmainly Star Wars. InBrooks with co-executive producer Alan Spencer made another attempt at television success with the sitcom The Nutt Housewhich featured Brooks regulars Harvey Korman and Cloris Leachman and was originally broadcast on NBC, but the network only aired five of the eleven episodes produced before canceling the series.
Men in Tightsand Dracula: Dead and Loving It People suggested, "anyone in a mood for a hearty laugh couldn't do better than Robin Hood: Life Stinks was a financial and critical failure, but is notable as being the only film that Brooks directed that is neither a parody nor a film about other films or theater. The Twelve Chairs was actually a parody of the original novel.

Brooks with wife Anne Bancroft at the Cannes Film Festival One of his most recent successes has been the musical adaptation of his film The Producers to the Broadway stage.
The show broke the Tony record with 12 wins, a record that had previously been held for 37 years by Hello, Dolly! In early AprilBrooks began composing the score to a Broadway musical adaptation of Young Frankensteinwhich he says is "perhaps the best movie [he] ever made. It earned mixed reviews from the critics. Brooks joked about the concept of a musical adaptation of Blazing Saddles in the final number in Young Frankenstein, in which the full company sings, "next year, Blazing Saddles!
No creative team or plan has been announced. His concrete handprints include a six-fingered left hand as he wore a prosthetic finger when making his prints. They had three children: Stephanie, Nicky, and Eddie. InBrooks credited Bancroft with having been "the guiding force" behind his involvement in developing The Producers and Young Frankenstein for the musical theater, saying of an early meeting with her: But I think I'm Jewish not because of the Jewish religion at all.
Every piece of colors and cinematography is top notch. The acting between Sewell and McCormack is amazing, astounding. I fell in love with their romance. The film hasn't left me long after I saw it. The score is brilliant. George Fenton is an emotional genius.
I really want to buy this movie. It works so well, and it is just really, really good. It's a movie to be felt, not explained. If you love intriguing plot lines, romance, and period pieces, then I highly recommend you check this out. And it was so, so good! The writing was good, scenery is perfect and beautiful, and the show has a great premise.
I also love the song, "California"- great theme song. He and Adam Brody Seth work really well off each other.
Adam Brody did a fantastic job as Seth Cohen- he was funny, charmingly dorky, endearing, and so cute! There's so much texture and history with these characters, I can't wait to see the next episode! Everyone watch "The O. I've been wanting to see this movie for a long time now, and what can I say?
He's such a perceptive, versatile actor that shines and is believeable in every role he plays. There are some that feel he is very wooden, but that is entirely what the role calls for. Just watch other movies he's done: The movie reminded me a lot of Star Wars, which had an Original Trilogy that wasn't not dependent on special effects.
Not the the effects were bad, but they weren't up to par, but it didn't matter, really. The characters shone through, as they do in this movie. Equilibrium is intelligent, thought-provoking, and entertaining.
I'd watch it for Christian, his scenes with Emily Watson, and the message behind it! It was nice to see Sean Bean in the movie, as well. First Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets burst forth in November, funnier, wittier, and more delightful than its predecessor.

Then Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, in perhaps the least popular book, proved it could live up to its expectations- and even exceed them. And now, with all the candor, excitement, and intensity and MORE!! The main thing I noticed about the second movie was that everything moved a lot faster than in the first one, and this was to be expected, whereas the first movie is mainly introduction and exposition, the second movie actually grabs a hold of a plot that its characters embark upon.
The opening scene with Nightcrawler at the White House was perfectly done, with tight, intense editing and extraordinary choreography and special effects. The sound in this movie was incredible!
I recommend that everyone see this at the theatre, for seeing it home on a small screen doesn't do its mastery justice.
As with many sequels, this one was funnier than the original! Everyone had great lines, especially the new character Pyro and our homeboy Wolverine. It was cool seeing the characters with their new looks- Rogue's maturity in dress and style, Jean's nifty hair cut, etc. Acting was all-around fantastic, too. I felt the actors understood their roles better.
Jean Grey, my favorite mutant, got a bigger part, and I was so happy! In the first movie she got a bit of the shaft. He only had a few scenes central to the action of the plot, and though one of these was outstandingly done e. Jean's death scene, I think we needed more of him. I loved that scene in the food court, hehe, it was great!
I can't go on enough about the action and the special effects. They were brilliant and perfectly done. The sound was amazing, editing was fabulous, everything came together so nicely. The only nitpicks I have are with the plot, and that is that I wish we could've learned more about Wolverine's background, since the first movie set all that up.
Brian Cox played Stryker, who was so awful and scary, I really loathed him in the movie. Cox did a great job. I liked his scenes with Hugh Jackman. Kelly Hu did really well, too. There's that one scene with her and Hugh that is sooooo intense!
I heard it took three weeks to film, and it was really well-done.
Word of warning, though, I wouldn't recommend taking your kids to see this, at least if they're under eight or nine.
I heard it was R before Bryan Singer toned down the violence. There were several small children in our showing, and a lot of them were getting tittery and a little sniffly during some of the violence, and very restless during the romantic, tender scenes.
All in all, what a great movie! I first saw this miniseries when my friend loaned it to me on her taped VHS collection. She stressed emphatically how fabulous it was. One day, I borrowed it from her, skeptical The cast is phenomenal, all are top-notch thespians with great range and a wonderful display of the human condition. Ones that particularly stand out are Damian Lewis and Rupert Graves. Lewis' haunting, affecting performance as the wealthy Forsyte and his suffocating passions was truly mindblowing and brilliant.
Lewis is a very accomplished actor. Graves displays a subtle yet great performance as Young Jolyon. For an actor to have come that far while hating the attention, well, it says a lot about his dedication to acting. He told Cheung he wanted to be an actor, not a movie star. Apparently he would attend press events unkempt and stinky, as his rebellion against what he was forced to do to be able to act.
He had very little control in his life, and unlike his father seemed to have some integrity.
Meet the Cast of The Newsies
Cheung manages to weave a tale that is actually worth reading, about an interesting person and his rise to fame. I enjoyed it, in spite of myself. Yet when I finished it, it left a very bad taste in my mouth. It seems that Cheung wrote the book because he never got paid a cent by Bale, even after being his publicist and assistant for years, and basically launching his status as internet phenom.
But Cheung comes off as a shit for writing an intimate portrait of a very private person. Maybe he never got paid, but working with Bale jumpstarted his career as a Hollywood publicist; he never requested a contract because he was a fan.
