It was okay, but nothing great for me. The "Jersey" and Italian humor was there, but not being either I didn`t find it that funny. It did not have to be Jersey, it would have worked with South Philly or many other places. Point being, I was disappointed with such good actors I expected more. Perhaps a script about a punky hot stud, a princess selfish girlfriend and a mature women going through her own crisis should have brought more to the film.
I didn't realize the profile of this animated film has an 'A-list' cast.
I was watching intently when I had to say, 'Hey, wait a sec... that sounds like... it is!!... Billy Bob Thornton!'
Now the ?? is - "Is 'Princess Monoke' better than 'The Secret World of Arietty', 'Ponyo', and/or 'Spirited Away'?"
'Spirited Away' would be very, very hard to top...
A great flick. Hase action, humor, friendship, a little romance, a little of drama and betrayal.... the music is fabulous and goes with the action scenes perfectly. Kudos to this film that I originally went in thinking would be just so-so, but came out wanting more.... it never bores me each time I watch.... in one word, it is "FUN!!!!" :)
Another awesome episode!! You haven't checked out this series yet, you should definitely give it a try. It is one of the best series I have come across in along time. And like this episode, it just gets better and better!!!

The Black Cat is an episode of the series Masters of Horror directed by Stuart Gordon from a screenplay by Gordon and Dennis Paoli. The story has the great horror author Edgar Allan Poe (Jeffrey Combs) suffering from writer's block and short on cash, tormented by a black cat that will either destroy his life or inspire him to write one of his most famous stories. The story of the same name by Poe is woven in with fictional happenings and details from his life. This is Stuart Gordon' second short film of Masters of Horror, the previous being 'Dreams in the Witch-House'.
Amazing performances from Dustin Hoffman and Valerie Perrine. I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of stand up comedy. Lenny Bruce is given a well rounded three dimensional treatment in this bio-pic, coming off as alternately wise, hilarious, despicable and ultimately human.
