 Critters (film series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Critters film series is a series of four horror, science fiction, and comedy films from New Line Cinema.
One of the most famous aspects of the series is the alien creatures called "crites" (or "krites") with their ability to roll into balls (like hedgehogs) and combine into a larger ball.
The storyline for all four films involve two bounty hunters from outer space hunting extraterrestrial monsters in American suburban towns, except for the final film, which takes place on a space station.

 Movie Info for Critters 3 on MSN Movies
The third in the tongue-in-cheek horror series liberally cribbed from Gremlins (1984) features an early performance from future heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio and was filmed simultaneously with its follow-up.
Critters 3 was directed by Kristine Peterson, a veteran of the Roger Corman school of no-budget genre filmmaking.
This time out, it's an urban family who picks up one of the fast-multiplying beasties while on vacation, although they are warned by Charlie (Don Opper), a veteran of the creatures' earlier attacks.

The film is as much about this clan as about the camels, focusing on the people as they spin established folk tales, tend to their livestock, and rub shoulders with the modern world only when absolutely necessary (in one subplot, the youngest boy discovers television and becomes obsessed with it).
Superior to its predecessor in every way, this lovely film does an exemplary job of conveying the manner in which the freedom and naivety of youth inevitably fall by the wayside, leaving only cherished memories, present regrets, and the rigor mortis of a future that can only be avoided by those willing to take risks.

Their 1987 science fiction series, "Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future," for Mattel and the Landmark Entertainment Group, introduced them to J. Michael Stracyznksi (who served as their story editor) and Ron Thornton (a special effects supervisor in charge of the miniatures).
Meanwhile, Copeland was graduating in the first class of film majors from Chapman College, followed by a two-year stint in London working as an assistant director for English producer Euan Lloyd, then a year on European locations with the film, "Paper Tiger." In 1978, they were introduced by Lloyd.
Certainly one of the hallmarks of the company's many successes was their critically-acclaimed ten-hour documentary series, "The Wild West," chronicling the settlement of the American West in the 30 years after the Civil War.

 Movie Review - Hukkle - eFilmCritic
For more in the 2003 San Francisco Film Festival series, click here.
HUKKLE is rather difficult to describe: the “plot” (yes, it has to be in quotes) is only a series of apparently disconnected scenes from rural life: a cat frolics in the grass, insects burrow through the dirt, an old man hiccups incessantly on his front porch.
Beautifully shot and in all technical categories very accomplished for an Eastern European film, HUKKLE nonetheless proved to be a trying experience for the audience I viewed it with; more than a few people walked early.

 Film Music on the Web CD Reviews May 1999: David NEWMAN Critters
critters (called 'Crites' in the film) are positively disgusting enough to warrant a series of films chronicling their destruction.
That some may say the film series itself is only slightly less vile is another matter, though I will suggest that should a "Critters 5" ever appear, it absolutely must contain footage of the Crites consuming select rolls of film from earlier instalments.
"Critters" features a soundtrack by David Newman (son of Alfred, nephew of Lionel and Emil, brother to Thomas and Maria, and cousin to Randy) that appears to be a compromise; Mr.

 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
The second installment of the film series offers another spellbinding - if rather long- journey into the world of wizardry.
The Harry Potter series thus far transports us totally to a picturesque British boarding school where the commonplace becomes magical, the suspense is flavored with whimsy and the people are dependably interesting.
And there are enough bad guys and creepy critters to keep faculty and students busy - though just barely, at two hours and 40 odd minutes not counting an annoying string of trailers no doubt intended to capitalize on the movie's popularity.

 Critters, Critters 2, Critters 3 & Critters 4
The story (or what is used as an excuse to make the film), follows a batch of unhatched critter eggs, as they are mistaken for Easter eggs by the inhabitants of Grover's Bend.
I may be ashamed to say this, but Critters has always entertained me. Any film of this age usually bares childhood memories, and seeing those fuzz balls tear up human beings again, made me remember that the 80s wasn't all bad.
Critters 2, surprisingly, seems to have the best transfer of the bunch, with very few examples of compression, and edge enhancement.

Akari is the daughter of one such winner, and the series focuses on her growth as a character from a fairly insecure girl trying to live up to her mother's legend to a young woman who is able to succeed for her own happiness and pride, freeing herself from others' expectations of her.
In the manga series this transformed (and rather sinister-looking) version of Yugi challenges bullies and other unsavory people to rigged games where they generally end up with their minds trapped in nightmarish fantasy worlds to punish them for their bad acts (if that isn't a bit extreme and creepy, I don't know what is).
When the series begins she's secretly pining after her track coach, Amano, and finally works up the courage to tell him how she feels about him (after all, he's leaving to study abroad and this is probably her last chance).

The critter that hatches out of that particular egg, by the way, has probably the shortest life span of the bunch.

Well acted and thoughtfully filmed, it teases viewers into thinking something extraordinary is going to happen, then leads them in a maddening spiral around what happened in the past, through the chilling present and back to the mind-numbing future.

In the Disney Boone films, the conflated narratives and a capitalist discourse together produce the visage of a monolithic power that is akin to 1950s Americanism, or the notion that America must fortify itself against insidious unAmerican sympathies that purpose to undermine the progressive history of a God-ordained, capitalist nation.
The series opens with a conversation between John Finley and Daniel Boone as they stand over their most recent kill, a bear that Finley says is fair in size compared to those in Kaintuck.
The films assert that before the theological and national narratives can inscribe, appropriate, and consume a Native history, commodities are exchanged and the sweets of capitalism are tasted in the wilderness.

A new two-hour film from series creator Don P. Bellisario is based on the 1989 series starring Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell that ran for five seasons on NBC.

Yes, the series is a little slow and it has all the Trek trappings, but the characters are interestingly flawed and it's fun to see a Trek where things break down or go wrong occasionally.

When the Museum of Modern Art announced "The Hidden God," a major faith and film series featuring titles as diverse as Magnolia, Andrei Roublev and Groundhog Day, the curators said the one film which clearly had to be included was Robert Bresson's masterpiece, Au Hasard Balthazar.
Film scholar Donald Richie provides a refreshingly personal response to the film in a specially recorded interview, and there is an unintentionally funny trailer for the film that tries to sell Balthazar as The Wild One on mopeds, with hardly a donkey in sight.
Film scholar Donald Richie describes the film's final moments: "The combination of something awful and something wonderful going together defeats any critical acumen I may have.

To the film's credit, though, the romantic angst seems less packaged and only slightly less pretentious than those on that Showtime series.
The film is more inert than the first two "Pokemons." The odd subtexts include the Tao of capitalism, cuddly critters as objects of euphemistic cockfighting, and spiritual apocalypse, all tied into a G-rated, family-friendly knot.
On its surface, the film plays like a less fraught redux of the hetero-homo relations in "Kiss Me Guido." But Jacobsen appears to have been instructed to do Allen, in the same way Livingston and co-writer Jaffe Cohen have cribbed the Woodman's lines and scenarios.
