Movie Reviews

An astounding examination of a brilliant, driven, and tragic
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 09/10/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Howard Hughes: The Man & The Madness is the stranger-than-fiction true story of billionaire businessman, record- setting aviator, invention mogul, and recluse Howard Robard Hughes, Jr. (1905-1976). Despite his stunning accomplishments, Hughes had no true friends or family; his obsessive-compulsive disorders and drug abuse worsened as he aged and cut himself off more and more from the outside world. This remarkable DVD biography includes special features such as newsreel footage of Hughes' notable accomplishments in the 1930's through 1950's, and is an astounding examination of a brilliant, driven, and tragic man. 98 minutes, color and black-and-white.

Howard Hughes docu. is flat, and then supplies comic relief
satire28 | California, USA | 01/08/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Okay, would I spend $9 for a new or used copy of this? Certainly not. This documentary is pretty cheezy and maudlin--the "menacing" sounding synth music tries to create an 'effect' but it eventually just gets really funny.

Positive thing is this documentary is supplying my friend and I with plenty of comic fodder as we continue to riff on this--the part where he is holed up in the Bevery Hills bungalow is where it starts to get amusingly bad."
