I was still on Cliff & Cydney's side even in the disappointing climax lols. The most impressive thing about this movies is the backdrop, it's nothing short of spectacular (Hawaii looks divine).
Alex r (nl) wrote: Documentary about the business practices of Wal Mart is an eye opening film that tells the behind the scenes story of what really happens. Everyone shops at Wal Mart; they are the biggest chain store in the world. This is a compelling documentary that explores an important topic. In many ways, we all know how Wal Mart operates, and it is very unfair and immoral. However, the store chain has such a grasp on our culture, which it is hard to boycott when it is the only store in a small town. I really don't approve of their methods, but I guess big corporations can easily get away with it because they have a major foothold in retail sales. This is a must see documentary and it is also an important one. Watching this film you realize that big companies like Wal Mart can get away with so much because they make huge profits. The film examines what the company does to small businesses, their employees and the environment. Despite its importance, I don't believe that the film will do anything to really make an impact on consumers. But for me, I was stunned at what I watched and thought that this is worth seeing. Wal Mart should definitely change their policies as they are one of the leading chain stores in the world, and many other companies are sure to use the same practices. Overall this is a shocking documentary and it is an eye opening film that definitely uncovers some truths that the company will surely find hard to reply to. With a film like this, the company should definitely have revised what they do in terms of business practices to protect at least some form of integrity. However, they only care about profits and don't care about the cost of what the company do to communities and people in general.

Jeff M (jp) wrote: It may be a little corny, but it is also a wonderful story. A few parts a little ahead of it's time or racey for the '40's. It's heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. Ginger Rogers is wonderful in this movie!!
Robert B (jp) wrote: Cleaner (Renny Harlin, 2007)The fact that Renny Harlin has made some of the worst movies in recent memory (Exorcist: The Beginning, Cliffhanger, Deep Blue Sea, and A Nightmare on Elm St. 4 were all Harlin projects) tends to obscure the fact that sometimes he puts out a serviceable, if forgettable, thriller. Cleaner is one of those, and if it's muddled, overly complex, and kind of silly, at least it's not The Adventures of Ford Fairlane. Yes, Harlin was responsible for that, as well.Tom Cutler (Samuel L. Jackson) is a police detective who got out of the life and started a crime-scene cleanup business. Everything is going along just fine. Well, okay, "fine" is not the word. His employees are having problems dealing with the messes they're being asked to clean up, he's a single parent with a rebellious teenager, and his hot secretary hits him with two jobs that need done while he's the only guy in the office: an old woman with forty-five cats who died of natural causes and a run-of-the-mill homicide. He takes the latter. (That the former is never mentioned again is the movie's single biggest failing.) Everything goes as scheduled until the next day, when he realizes he's forgotten to leave the keys, so he goes back to the house to return them... and Ann Norcut (Eva Mendes), the homeowner, knows nothing about a cleaning company being retained to sanitize a crime scene. Cue web of deceit.The biggest draw here is that you've got four actors with proven track records (along with Jackson and Mendes are Ed Harris as Tom's ex-partner and Luis Guzmn as a detective investigating departmental corruption), and all four of them deliver good performances. A number of other solid actors turn up in smaller roles; the Robert Forster cameo is worth the price of admission by itself. Balancing that out is, well, Harlin's direction, which is about as lackluster as it usually is when he's not in stuff-blows-up mode, and Matthew Aldrich's script, which doesn't do quite enough in the way of jacking up the suspense or hiding the predictability. It's got some really nice touches (the movie's opening scene is fantastic; if Aldrich and Harlin had been able to keep up that level of humor/gore mix, they'd have had a hit on their hands), but the longer we go, the more the movie fails at keeping the viewer guessing, despite the actors doing the best they can with the material given.Short answer: Harlin's best movie since Die Hard 2 seventeen years previous... but not as good as Die Hard 2, which wasn't great in the first place. ** 1/2
