Wow! This movie was great. It made me cry at least three or four times. Everybody was a great actress/actor in this movie. All four actresses stretched to play some bank robbers, especially Queen Latifah whose character was butch and kinda slow, but slow in a funny way. Same thing goes for Kimberly Elise's character...she was really kinda slow, but it was hillarious. I won't give away the movie, but I really didn't expect it to turn out the way it did. This movie is one of the best movies of the 1990s.

Thick as Tieves
Had some great humour.
Here's another film rating.
Set It Off is brilliant film by talented F. Gary Gray. What sets this film apart from your routine crime caper/heist flick is that it features some very impressive and strong performances by Jada Pinkett-Smith and Queen Latifah. Vivica Fox, Kimberly Elise and underrated John C. McGinty were quite effective in supporting roles. Blair Underwood was sort of wasted as reverse eye candy. The love story sub plot was bit of a distraction, only in minor way. But at the core of this film was the bond between these ladies, all driven to rob banks for various reasons. What they all shared was their desperation. Instead of cliched cardboard characters, we are served pretty well fleshed out characters with as much depth as time allows. Queen Latifah was outstanding as hardened career criminal. There is one scene where Jada's character stands up to her and it's tasty. All in all, pretty dang good thriller film that should be seen. The performances are what elevates it above the norm for this genre.

He's out there, isn't he?

Alfred Hitchcock, as I've said before, is a bit overrated, but he has a few great films under his belt (as far as those I've seen, these include, of course, Psycho and Rear Window, North by Northwest, Frenzy and The Birds). Strangers on a Train joins this group, with the director doing the least amount of showing off I've yet seen him do. It's well-acted, suspenseful and culminates in one of the most brilliant and visually memorable sequences in thriller history. **** (out of ****) A
One of my favorite movies! It shows how true friendship can be, and how severe hardships can become, making life tough.
A very powerful social commentary on desparation and the challenges that everyday people have to deal with... Challenges that task the very core of the human spirit. How much can one take before one throws caution to the wind and goes out on a limb to find what seems to be unattainable?

A very well done film and a nice soundtrack to go with it.
