When Norwegian resistance leader Lieutenant Erik Bergman reports the location of a German V-2 rocket fuel plant, the Royal Air Force's 633 Squadron is assigned the mission to destroy it. The plant is in a seemingly-impregnable location beneath an overhanging cliff at the end of a long, narrow fjord lined with anti-aircraft guns. The only way to destroy the plant is by collapsing the cliff on top of it.

(au) wrote: The inappropriately named "Fright Night 2" is far and away the worst entry in the Fright Night franchise, but not completely lacking in merit. I say inappropriately named because it is neither a sequel to the original Fright Night (which already had a Part 2) nor is it a sequel to the 2011 remake of Fright Night as I had assumed it would be. Instead it is another remake of Fright Night, completely ignoring the events of all 3 previous films and re-casting/re-telling/re-imagining the first plot.So yeah, you should probably know that going in.

Cheesy and clich-ridden, with some downright stupid scenes and little respect for the historical events and names it derives from, but not as unwatchable as many seem to think. A fair tv flick for pirate enthusiasts such as meself.

(br) wrote: I sort of avoided the Christian football film Hometown Legend for a while, despite my intense love of bad Christian movies, just because I was never in the mood for what I considered a "Facing the Giants knock-off". If I had paid any attention at all, I probably would have realized that this is no knock-off - it came out four years prior to the Kendrick brothers' film. And what I learned while watching the movie is that it it's only tangentially Christian-themed.The movie takes place in a small Southern town that was once known for its high school football team, which led the state for sixteen years straight. After an unfortunate accident which left one player dead, legendary Coach Schuler (O'Quinn) retires and the town falls into disarray. Part of the problem is that a scholarship has been created to honor the fallen player, the pursuit of which has driven each subsequent year's team further apart from one another. Each student is working toward his own goals. Now the town is broke, I guess because they've got nothing but high school football supporting their economy, and the school is set to be shut down. But good ol' Coach Schuler is going to come back for the final season, just to re-ignite that old magic.It's a pretty straight-forward story from there. The players don't work well together, and a hard-nosed coach has to show them the right path. In one sense, I suppose it really is that simple of a story. But a closer look reveals the shades of gray in between. Schuler's strategy with the students is to push them toward greatness. If they refuse to work his way, he just pushes them more. He claims that his goal is to create a cohesive football team, calling the scholarship a curse on the school. He berates his students for their individualism, which is understandable to a certain extent. But then consider the fact that Schuler has returned with the express purpose of rekindling some glory - is that not a selfish act in itself? And Schuler's antagonism toward the scholarship neglects the fact that some kids really do rely on these sorts of scholarships to help them get into college. Is that inherently wrong?I never really knew how to read Schuler. The movie seems to want to paint him as the moral leader, but there so often seems to be more madness than method. When a fight erupts between two teammates, Schuler asks who initiated the skirmish. A boy tells the coach the answer, and he is immediately cut from the team. Schuler asks again. After a moment, a second boy answers... knowing full well what the penalty will be. These characters are referred to on the IMDB page as "Stupid Snitch #1" and "Snitch #2". That's amazing. The moral courage that is necessary to speak up while knowing full well what might happen if you do is so much more compelling than some half-assed lesson about not being a 'stupid snitch'. That's why it's so hard to understand who Schuler is supposed to be in this movie. He's positioned as some kind of great leader, but the choices he makes are positioned to lead toward some kind of pseudo-fascism.I think he grows by the end of the movie. Schuler's assistant coach has a talk with him and there's sort of an ah-ha moment. If there's a real problem with the movie (other than the fact that its central story isn't enough to sustain the movie's runtime), it's that any character growth is difficult to see. To go back to the FTG comparison, the moment when coach Grant Taylor stopped being such a prick and gave his mind and heart to God was easy to see because he changed his life. His team started winning. The wind changed direction so that his kicked could make a 60-yard field goal. There's nothing so clear in Hometown Legend. Does Schuler have a radical change of heart? Do his methods affect his students? Aside from one stirring(?) monologue, it's hard to see any signs of growth there.But that's sort of what makes the movie more enjoyable, too. Instead of being some easy tale of going from bad to good drawn with big, bold lines, this movie is a little bit more challenging. Sure, it's book-ended with Lacey Chabert's call for God to "show up and show off", but the film surprised me by not being an easy religious knock-over. Schuler is a complicated character. The out-of-towner kid Elvis (seriously???? what kind of a name is Elvis???????????) who has to overcome the prejudices of the townies, he's a complicated character. They're stubborn, they're misguided, they're... human.I don't know whether that was intentional. It's hard to understand what the movie was really going for. But although Hometown Legend is definitely slight and spends a lot of time running in place, I still can't help but thinking of it as mostly successful. It's defied my expectations. I spent more time analyzing the characters' motivations than most viewers are likely to do, but the movie is still likely to raise anybody's eyebrows because it does not hit all of the beats that the cliched plot-line suggests. Nothing extraordinary here, but intriguing nonetheless.

(fr) wrote: Palme D'Or winner from Turkey about a group of prisoners who are given a week long leave. The set up doesn't sound too exciting, and if you're familiar with many of the Cannes winners, it sort of has the usual pace to it, but it's a well made film. It picks up in the second half, particularly the scene with the man going home to see his wife and has to travel through a snowy mountain to get there. I also loved the scenes with Cobanaglu, the star of Journey of Hope. Give it a chance if you can find it, it's got some memorable moments.

(ru) wrote: Directed by Jack Starrett, (Slaughter (1972) and Cleopatra Jones (1973)), this is a road chase thriller mixed with occult horror. It mixes the two well, and it all builds up throughout to a massive, high octane chase, it might come across as dated now, but you could imagine stuff like this happening. Motorbike racer Roger Marsh (Peter Fonda) and bike shop owner Frank Stewart (Warren Oates) go on a holiday in an RV across America with their respective wives Kelly (Lara Parker) and Alice (Loretta Swit). They set off from San Antonio, Texas for a break of bike racing and skiing in Aspen, Colorado. On the way there, they stop off in a quiet plain, but during the night, across the river, Roger and Frank spot what looks like a bonfire, but it actually turns out to be a Satanic ritual human sacrifice. The Satanists spot them, and they manage to escape, only just. They tell the Sheriff (R.G. Armstrong) in the nearby town, but he is unable to help them, believing it might have been an animal that was killed. As the families head on their way, they're soon followed by a convoy of Satanists in trucks, set on killing them. It's a suspenseful thriller, cut from similar cloth to Straw Dogs (1971) and Deliverance (1972), even Kevin Smith said it was a huge influence on Red State (2011), Fonda and Oates, both underrated as actors, make good action men in this suspenseful tale.
(ag) wrote: Director Anthony Mann is best remembered for his tough film noir or his hard edged westerns (and occasionally a period epic), so it's fun to see him do something outside of those genres. In this film, Mann presents a very unglamorous portrait of war. It some ways it's a pretty conventional war film, but in others, such as the film taking place all in one day and the level of Sam Fuller-like grit make it better than average.
