Robert B (br) wrote: Fear Island (Michael Story, 2009)IMDB informs me that Fear Island is a made-for-TV film, though they neglect, as usual, to tell me on which station it initially aired. I'm going to take a stab at the Lifetime Movie Network; it's got that feel to it, and it fits with a few of cinematographer Storey's other directorial efforts (Before I Say Goodbye and We'll Meet Again, both part of "The Mary Higgins Clark" collection-though as far as I can tell Ms. Clark had not a blessed thing to do with either). But don't let that feel you into thinking I'm coming down on this monstrosity because I think it's a Lifetime Original Movie-I thought it sucked while I was watching it, days before I discovered it was a made-for-TV affair. Once again, Hillary Duff's older, somewhat less talented sister Haylie got herself a cinematic vehicle, and once again (just in case you missed it, I reviewed Backwoods, which came out the year before, a ways back, with similar results) it's terrible. And I say this as someone who doesn't have anything against the Duff clan in general; Raise Your Voice is one of those guilty-pleasure movies I can't help but watch every time I stumble across it. Fear Island has no chance of getting to that level.Plot: the usual crop of young-and-beautifuls heads off for a weekend of partying at the island retreat of (presumably, the parents of) Tyler Campbell (A History of Violence's Kyle Schmid) and his brothers Mark (The Shrine's Aaron Ashmore) and Kyle (The Grey's Jacob Blair). Along for the ride: Mark's ex-girlfriend Jenna (Duff), who went on the promise that Mark would not be attending and isn't happy he's along for the ride, Tyler's current girlfriend Ashley (Jessica Harmon from the 2006 remake of Black Christmas), and Megan (Scream 4's Lucy Hale), a mysterious stowaway on the gang's boat who is accepted quickly by the males in the group thanks to her let's-party attitude. The first night goes off relatively without a hitch, but weird things have been happening their entire time there, and as the sun dawns on their second day, the weird factor turns dangerous. Oh, I should mention there's a frame story: As we open, Jenna is in the hospital, the lone survivor of the weekend. Detective Amory (Love Come Down's Martin Cummins) figures Jenna killed everyone else; beautiful-brilliant-stereotypical-psychologist Dr. Chalice (The Thaw's Anne Marie Deluise) believes Jenna's protestations of innocence (and amnesia). The main story is told in flashback, with punctuation scenes of the detective wanting to just shoot her and the doctor trying to get to the bottom of things......and you've see it all before, at least a dozen times, always done better than this. I'll give screenwriters Jeff Martel (A Fairy Tale Christmas) and Jack Harry (this is the only writing credit he has at IMDB as of this writing) two things: they have a propensity for coming up with good character names (you'll get what I mean, if you are unlucky enough to see this movie, given the demise of one of the characters) and the one piece of the plot that never quite rings true is handled with much more skill than anything else here-one assumes, in fact, that was the "what if...?" that started the script being written in the first place. Had they handled the rest of it with such care, they might have gotten somewhere-though granted they probably would have needed a casting director who would have resisted casting Haylie Duff. *

People need to get a clue. This documentary was exactly what it was supposed to be, a light shined on something that was growing over here in the dark corner. For a 2005 doc I thought it means more to me today as I just watched for maybe the 15th time. It truly gives me a greater sense of appreciation for those who are in dier situations and choose to grab a hold of any liferaft they can and wade their way to safety than to succumb to their surroundings. Great doc, inspiring to say the least.

Chris Z (ag) wrote: Never heard of this, an impulse rent based on the cast (Blanchett), a really interesting attempt by the director of Run Lola Run.At first it starts out a story of revenge tangled up in love, Blanchett plays a schoolteacher who has just been arrested for terrorism. Her husband apparently died from a drug overdose, and she is on a mission to kill a well-connected guy who is the drug-kingpin and long-time friend of her husband. She attempts to bomb him in his office, but ends up killing a maid, and a father and his two little girls. She breaks down when she learns this during interrogation. But the italian translator played by Giovanni Ribisi falls in love with her. Together they manage to escape and kill the drug-lord then run off into the country. And here is where the title of the film comes in, and it becomes some kind of vague religious parable. They don identical white wifebeaters and shave their heads, and I guess represent some kind of adam and eve character (their names, btw, are Philippa and Filippo), as they try to hide from the Carabinieri who are hunting them. This part was halfway kind of fascinating, and halfway ridiculous and vapid. The film closes with a kind of metaphorical escape where after finally making love on some kind of edenic hill with a tree, the police swarm the farmhouse they were hiding in on the next hill. They sneak up and jump into the police helicopter then fly up into the sky until they disappear presumably into the heavens. It sounds kind of silly, and is I suppose.In any case, Blanchett is a stunningly brilliant actress, and dominates the film particularly early in the film as she breaks down under interrogation. But as a whole, the movie doesn't really know what it is, and the vague religious stuff happening falls flat and feels more lazy than anything. More an attempt at some kind of "depth" or meaning that also feels like the writers didn't know where to go with the story so they tacked on this whole weird ending metaphor to take it "somewhere." Problem is, I'm not really sure where that "somewhere" is. Worth a rental, but unlikely to be very memorable.

Nicole N (ag) wrote: This movie was a huge disappointment. John Ford and Henry Fonda are both great at what they do and have been involved in some of the greatest films ever made, but this is not it. The plot had no focus, there was no emotional connection between the audience and the characters, and several of the scenes were just idiotic (when Mrs. McKlennar is telling the Indians that are burning down her house how to get the bed out of the room). I could go on, but instead I'll just say that this is a steaming pile of crap from one of the best directors in film history.
