Duke is a modern day telling of a classic western film. Dare and Roost are brothers who have been raised in a reformatory, taught to survive and conditioned to trust no one. They have moved to West Los Angeles, where Dare moonlights himself as a Detective and Roost blankets himself in old John Wayne films and reclusive habit. Cleaning the streets and ridding the neighborhoods of scum, this contemporary study finds Dare obsessed with a phantom like criminal (Winky) who seems to be terrorizing the community. Simultaneously, the same exact investigation is being led by official and likely engrossed Detective Robert Morrison. As Dare closes in on Winky and the entire department closes in on them both, these brothers must make the ultimate commitment and pay the extraordinary consequences therein.

He is a real Grade A actor, and even though he is in a pure kids film he still gives it his all and is clearly having an insane amount of fun playing the villain role. He gets mad props from me. The film also has some great scenes deep inside Universal Studios Hollywood and in Hollywood itself. For any kid, it's a dream come true. I grew up with this film, and have seen it literally countless amounts of times and yet it is still every bit as fun as when I first saw it. It was also the film that first introduced me to the great Paul Giamatti. Dan Schneider of Drake and Josh, Good Burger, Keenan and Kel, The Amanda Show, and All That fame writes the script and it certainly isn't great, but it fits the bill for kiddie fare (it's very cute, a bit clever, and quite funny). While the film certainly isn't aimed at adults it's still cute, charming and innocent, not to mention it's tons of crazy fun making this film one the whole family would likely enjoy. I know I continue to re-watch it every chance I get (not to mention it always leaves me insanely happy). I love it.

Mr B (au) wrote: Ever had a discussion with someone and then somewhere in that discussion it gets to both of you talking about Religion? That's the case in this independent film based on a play by Roger Rueff called Hospitality Suite. It revolves around three men who become the only characters in the entire movie as they stage a routine sales convention for their firms industrial lubricants. They are the representatives of the firm and they seek out a "Big Kahuna" in the form of a certain CEO that could save their company. The only problem is that they don't know who the man looks like, but the youngest and more religious of the two does. So they lean on him to get the account and hopefully will save them from ruin, but will this young man's religious views get in the way?The three men are of a certain age: Bob (Peter Facinelli) is the youngest and more religious than the other two, Larry (Kevin Spacey) is the middle aged, quick witted, loud-mouth who pushes Bob's buttons when it comes to religion and Phil (Danny Devito) is the old and almost obsolete salesman who begins to question his life and work. These men will have a deep, religious experience in the form of questioning their existence.Much of the movie takes place in the Hospitality Suite on the 16th floor. As they wait for their Kahuna, they get involved in conversations concerning character, religion, honesty and love. All in some ways collide into one another through the course of the film. The dialogue is irreverently witty and much of Spacey's one-liners cracked me up. The acting is quite good, especially from Spacey. Devito shows his vulnerable side for once which was interesting to see and Facinelli does a good job at playing the goodie-goodie who shakes up these two mens faith.The push and pull between Larry and Bob was fascinating to watch. Larry is a cynic and tries to impart his knowledge of life onto the young Bob. Their argument near the end of the movie over God is quite something, but I think the most insightful piece of dialogue comes from Phil once Larry and Bob have stop arguing. He talks to Bob, alone and discusses the distinction between religion and selling lubricants. There is no difference. Because selling lubricants is no different from selling religion. Ever talk to someone who veers off the course of a real human conversation only to then chat about scriptures and bible verses? That's usually a marketing ploy. To get you to buy what they're selling. In this case, Jesus. It was an insightful piece of dialogue, but the young Bob still has a lot to learn about life. Right now he's just a marketing rep for the lord. Maybe one day he'll regret that.Overall, this is a well made and relaxing film to watch late at night.

Brian R (ag) wrote: Kaleidoscope a Danielle Steel novel is about three sisters who become seperated during their childhood then decades later through the help of a gleamful private eye(Perry King) all three become united again except the older sister doesnt take the reunion lightly. She is played beautifully by Jaclyn Smith. I was in awe when i saw her performance, she knows how to make her character electrifying without going over the top. The other two sister Alexandra(Patricia Kalember) and Megan(Claudia Christian) Alexandra has two kids and is married to a unsympathetic senator and Meagan is a doctor happily married and is trying to have kids. I hope I didn't tell the whole story but for a TV picture I was quite impressed the director Jud Taylor is no stranger to the film camera and hidden pasts.

Not as laugh out loud as some other Ealing pics, but its warm hearted and the island scenery gives a good atmosphere.
