Forty-two students, three days, one deserted Island: welcome to Battle Royale. A group of ninth-grade students from a Japanese high school have been forced by legislation to compete in a Battle Royale. The students are each given a bag with a randomly selected weapon and a few rations of food and water and sent off to kill each other in a no-holds-barred (with a few minor rules) game to the death, which means that the students have three days to kill each other until one survives--or they all die. The movie focuses on a few of the students and how they cope. Some decide to play the game like the psychotic Kiriyama or the sexual Mitsuko, while others like the heroes of the movie--Shuya, Noriko, and Kawada--are trying to find a way to get off the Island without violence. However, as the numbers dwell down lower and lower on an hourly basis, is there any way for Shuya and his classmates to survive? . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Jason M (gb) wrote: This film will certainly be appreciated by Jimi Hendrix fans as the legendary Bootsy Collins acts as Hendrix narrating a biography about himself. The material is comprehensive and all the important classic footage is in this film. It moves at just the right pace for a biography. All the key moments in Hendrix's life are spaced out evenly, rather than simply focusing on his music career. Despite it's low budget production quality, it delivers a sound (no pun intended) and thorough narrative of the life of this brilliant vanguard guitarist and musician.

Tim W (mx) wrote: I quite liked this. Like an action crime noir, with interesting characters and overall concept. Less about what happens and more about the characters and existentialism. It also didn't take itself too serious, which led to a couple cliches and some cheese but that's ok, it was enjoyable.

Brad G (es) wrote: Decent claustrophobic crime drama directed by Kevin Spacey. Not a fan of Matt Dillon but I really enjoyed seeing cool character actors like William Fichtner, M. Emmet Walsh, John Spencer, and even pre-Rings Viggo Mortensen get their chance at the spotlight. Not crazy by how things play out but that's usually the case with these types of pictures.

Van R (ag) wrote: Writer & director Billy Wilder's sophomore frame as a helmer occurred with the World War II era suspense-thriller "5 Graves to Cairo," the first of several W.W. II movies that included a real-life personality from the war, German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel. Despite it being a pro-Allied propaganda effort, the Billy Wilder & Charles Brackett screenplay treats Rommel with considerable respect considering what some Allied war movies did to him. Noted Austrian silent movie director and actor Erich von Stroheim plays the renowned military leader and struts about in high fashion with a swagger stick. The Academy nominated this black & white, 96-minute film for three Oscars, including Best Film Editing, Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction.The story concerns resilient British Corporal J.J. Bramble (Franchot Tone of "The Lives of a Bengal Lancer") is the member of an Allied tank crew. Everybody in the armored vehicle is dead and the tank careens through the desert over one dune after another until Bramble regains consciousness and bails off it. Confused and delirious from his long walk in a broiling sun, he wanders aimlessly through the sands and finds himself at an oasis hotel. Unfortunately for Cpl. Bramble, the British have pulled out and the Afrika Korps are pulling in to occupy the joint as their new headquarters. The hotel owner Farid (Akim Tamiroff of "Topkapi") and his chambermaid Frenchwoman Mouche (Anne Baxter of "All About Eve) try to persuade Bramble to get out while he can. Bramble refuses to leave. He assures them that he will shot either as an enemy soldier or as one that they cannot afford to furnish water. While the Germans swarm into the hotel and dictate the new arrangements for the owners and the new boarders, Farid hides Bramble behind the registration counter. Later, Farid and Mouche watch in horror as the Germans move the counter to another spot in the room. Bramble remains hidden in the counter while all of this is transpiring. Bramble hears them talk about a waiter named Davos who worked for Farid. It seems that Davos died in an explosion. Bramble dons the waiter's uniform and slips into his shoes, shoes designed for a man with a clubfoot.Surprisingly, the Germans seek out Davos because he is an elite German spy with a well-deserved reputation, but nobody knows him by face. Nevertheless, the Germans accept him as the spy and plan to infiltrate him into Cairo. Meanwhile, Bramble meets an opera-singing Italian general and plans to steal his automatic pistol so that he can shoot Rommel. Several British officers??now prisoners-of-war??are shown into Rommel's company. Farid warns Bramble that the British were well-acquainted with Davos and would recognize him without fail. Bramble makes contact with one British officer while serving him liquor and the officer orders Bramble not to kill Rommel. Later in the evening, Rommel sits down to dine with the captured British officers and answer their twenty questions. Afterward, he reveals that he posed as an archaeologist before the war and execrated five secret supply dumps, the "Five Graves to Cairo", for the conquest of Egypt. has buried armaments at five sites inside Egypt that will enable him to carry the fight to the British and capture Cairo. The tension in "Five Graves to Cairo" grows partially out of Bramble's masquerade as Davos and the reality that the real Davos lies dead and buried under the rubble under the cellar. Inquisitive Rommel aide Lieutenant Schwegler (Peter van Eyck) discovers Bramble's treachery during an RAF air raid. Bramble and he struggle and he kills Schwegler. Bramble is certain that the Germans will find out about him. One of the subplots deals with Mouche trying to obtain information about her only living brother in a German concentration camp. Schwegler takes advantage of her desperation to learn something, anything about her brother. She accepts blame for Schwegler's killing and the Germans smuggle Bramble as Davos off to Cairo. Bramble receives a promotion to a lieutenant in charge of a tank for his excellent undercover work.This is a great film with some nail biting suspense!
