Romance To The Rescue YIFY [WORK]



We love dogs, have two rescue dogs and would have been delighted at a half-decent Hallmark film on this subject. We were so open to this movie being good. But it wasn't even close.Andrea Brooks giggles constantly as the lead romantic female, substituting "giggle giggle giggle" for more nuanced acting. Neither my wife nor I could develop any affection or empathy for her empty=headed character as she cluelessly encounters the world of dogs and competitive agility training.Everything is so wrong about this movie. The rescue center manager (the male romantic interest) shows up to inspect her house for suitability for a rescue dog AFTER the dog has been placed in her home -not before, as it is done in real life. He walks into her living room, which has been torn up by the newly adopted dog, and after giving her some basic coaching about owning a dog he announces that her place looks fine. What, no inspection to see whether her backyard has a fence ?-which is the primary thing that real-life rescue organizations look for when they inspect a home. Nope, he seemingly just wanted to see her pretty face.The couple takes the dog to a veterinarian and has an out-of world experience. The vet comes outside the building to meet them, then takes the dog inside for examination. The couple remain outside on a park bench. The vet then walks outside the building to the park bench to discuss the results of the exam. The vet walks back inside the building, and then brings their dog out on a leash. Isn't that the way every vet visit is handled, LOL? Apparently, Hallmark needed to save money by not setting up any inside areas to look like a reception area or an examination room.Anyone who does canine agility training in real life would be incensed at the way it is portrayed in the movie. A new owner, who doesn't know how to hold a leash when she walks the dog on a sidewalk is immediately walking the dog around a makeshift agility course -like once or twice -as training. Her boyfriend-to-be encourages the dog to go through a tunnel by crawling through it himself! Apparently that's all it takes -because they leave the dog with a friend and spend the next 10-12 hours walking around town eating ice cream, playing on the swings in the park and go to his house to watch a movie. Then suddenly it is time for the agility competition - and there, in front of an audience, is our giggly owner crawling through the plastic tunnel on the course to once-again encourage her dog! I mean, really?The plot is filled with this kind of stupid nonsense in so many scenes. The rescue center doesn't keep their large dogs in crates or cages. They are kept behind 2-foot-high white picket fences that the dogs could jump over in a microsecond.What is the point of having a dog-centric Hallmark movie if the script writers and director know less about owning dogs than 99% of their audience?




Romance to the Rescue YIFY



Thoroughly enjoying the second film 'Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure' I was keen on watching this installment. Bradley Raymond is back as director. This was even better than the second film, with better animation, and again with wonderful action and adventure. The adventure starts when Tinker Bell is captured by a human girl, and the fairies set out to rescue her, not knowing that she's actually befriending the human.The bond between fairy and human was wonderfully portrayed, exactly the way I'd imagine a child would react if she were to see a fairy. There's also a very deep underlying theme here with the single father/daughter relationship, with a father always "too busy" for his daughter.All the familiar characters are back, as well as Blaze, and Cheese is back in a more prominent role. The fairy inventions are genius thinking from the writer's and animator's perspective. I loved this film, and thought it was really cute with a lesson or two to be learnt.


Christian Slater is a young man with rather freakishly long hair who has been raised in an orphanage and now works as a dishwasher in a Minneapolis diner. He rarely speaks and keeps to himself. Marisa Tomei is a waitress in said diner, and Rosie Perez is her earthy but sympathetic sidekick. Slater has developed a crush on Tomei and follows her around at a discreet distance, so when she's attacked while walking home from work he's able to rescue her. Later, her attackers wreak an unpleasant revenge on Slater. All of this brings the two of them together. Slater lets her know, in his recedent way, that he adores her, and she responds by falling for this shy, silent kinda guy. Their love is, how you say, consummated. But there is a problem. Slater was told by the nuns at his orphanage that he's had a heart transplant, with the donor being a baboon. Whether that's the case or not, his heart is now weakened and needs a booster shot, which Slater is unready to undergo. Eventually his heart, simian or hominid, beats its last, but not before he's had a heck of a good time exchanging tender gestures and body fluids with Marisa Tomei.I can't really tell if this is a particularly well-done example of the genre because I watch so few examples. I could see most of the developments coming, and so would you. And the crooning of Johnny Mathis and Nat "King" Cole's mystical pop song, "Nature Boy," from the 1950s really wasn't necessary. We get the picture. Slater is quiet, shy, and mysterious -- like Montgomery Clift in "A Place in the Sun" -- the sort of man who attracts women, but only in the movies. In real life I would imagine that he would absorb the attention of women who were chiefly neurotics. A research plan for young men who DON'T look like Montgomery Clift: Get a menial job, speak to no one, don't meet anyone's gaze, and see what happens. If you save a co-worker from rape, you might get a Thank You note and a box of chocolates.Well, I've made sufficient fun of the movie and it's a bit unfair, like stretching the iridescent wings of a butterfly on the rack. It's supposed to be a sweet and endearing story, and it is, even if it's some mutant form of Beauty and the Beast. At least I was able to get into it, though I hadn't expected to.The "Nature Boy" business was an irritant, and the baboon heart slipped motionlessly by me, but Slater is quietly effective in the role and Marisa Tomei is quite good and thoroughly believable as a sensitive young woman who serves ham and eggs and reads "Catch 22" at home. Rosie Perez is always a kick in the pants too.The film stands as a beacon of hope for those of us who trudge off to work, looking exactly the way we feel, and yet suffer from an intense desire to find love in an unpromising milieu. Or anywhere else.


Caroline (Marisa Tomei) has her heart broken yet again. Adam (Christian Slater) is the introverted silent busboy working in the same diner. Then one night, she's harassed by a couple of guys and Adam comes to her rescue. Adam is an orphan who was told by a nun that he has a baboon heart. They fall in love. The two guys come back to attack Adam and in the hospital, he's told that his damaged heart needs a transplant.This is romance at its most melodramatic. Marisa Tomei is a master at making googly eyes. She has the giggle and the sweetness. Christian Slater is going mostly for the quiet type. They make an appealing couple. The story hits all the girlie fantasy about a silent broody guy who rescues the damsel in distress. And he needs her in return. "You are my peace." It doesn't get more melodramatic than that.


It is said, during the worse disasters, we see ordinary people, exhibiting extraordinary heroics. Basically that's the core of this film entitled " Flight From Ashiya. " The men of the Air Rescue Service are given a ceremonial tribute and for the most part it's about them. Three men and their lives are personified each offering a segway into their background. The first is Glenn Stevenson (Richard Widmark) the experienced commander who's lingering demons are a deep reminder that his personal bigotry is not only a hindrance to his job, but is itself more of a danger than the black ocean he willingly faces. Next is his second in command, Lt. John Gregg (George Chakiris) who's memories of a mountain accident have become a major obstacle to his courage. Fearing he caused the death of stranded villagers, he doubts he will ever overcome it. The last member of the crew is Tsgt. Mike Takashima. (Yul Brynner) Reaching into his past, he recalls vividly a tragic accident in which a lost love reminds him of his shortcomings and vulnerability. Together the crew receives a summons to fly into raging Pacific storm at night to risk life and limb and rescue a raft load of Japanese survivors on the verge of drowning. The film is a stark reminder of what these courageous men face in their tireless efforts to save lives. Excellent acting from Widmark, Brynner and Chakiris make this a worthy tribute to the profession. Unfortunately the clumsy use of miniatures and models diminishes the visual power of this fine movie. Nevertheless, actual locations and backdrops add to the touching story and contribute to it's success. ****


In 1964 at Ashiya Air Force Rescue station in Japan, another Flight From Ashiya is launched when word of survivors on a raft in the North China Sea is heard. Two planes are given the mission.While on the way in flashback we see the lives of three of the men on the rescue mission with various incidents from their past. The three are Colonel Richard Widmark, Lieutenant George Chakiris, and Sergeant Yul Brynner. You're supposed to take only essentials, but in this situation all three men are taking a lot of baggage along. Both Widmark and Brynner met and lost their true loves during World War II and Chakiris blames himself for the deaths of several people during another mission ten years earlier that both Widmark and Brynner were on.There are some very nice flying and rescue sequences in Flight From Ashiya, aviation buffs will love this film.Best performance in the film has to be Yul Brynner the half Japanese half Polish American sergeant who decided to make a career of the Armed Services even after World War II. My guess is that Brynner probably served in the 443rd Division of Nisei and served in Italy as well as North Africa where his flashback takes place.Widmark was a civilian pilot who ran an airline in the Phillipines before World War II where he met Shirley Knight. What happens to both of them after Pearl Harbor and the invasion of the Phillipines shapes Widmark's attitudes. Last year Dennis Quaid and Ashton Kutcher did a film about the Coast Guard Rescue Force called Swimmer. A lot of Flight From Ashiya was incorporated into that film. That was a worthy successor to Flight From Ashiya. 041b061a72
