Fire on the Track: The Steve Prefontaine Story
Pre embodied the spirit of athletic excellence. He had a belief in self and sport that transcended all but the outer reaches of human speed and endurance. As a freshman, he appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, which hailed him as "America's Distance Prodigy". By the time he died in a tragic auto accident at the age of 24, Pre held all 7 American records between 2,000 and 10,000 meters. Off the track, he fought relentlessly for the rights of amateur athletes to prosper for their sacrifices. Narrated by Ken Kesey, Fire On the Track is the story of this young lion's life, as told through rare footage and the memories of those who knew him best - his teammates, coaches, family and friends.

Fire on the Track: The Steve Prefontaine Story torrent reviews
(es) wrote: A thought-provoking and fairly captivating look at a world known to few, but made entertaining and enjoyable through good story-telling and the wonderful character of a humble champion idolised in his field.
(us) wrote: "Assassination of a High School President" is a mixed bag. When it tries to be like the great hardboiled noirs of the past, it's good, but when it detours into romantic/raunchy comedy territory, it doesn't work. The coarse dialogue and vulgar content seem out of place and out of context. Reece Thompson is so-so in the lead role, but he doesn't always hold our attention. No, the standout performances come from Bruce Willis, who gets most of the good lines, and character actor Josh Pais, who had me laughing every time he came onscreen. Overall, "Assassination of a High School President" is just too unfocused. It could have been something really great, but instead, it's concerned with being filthy and commonplace.
(kr) wrote: A pretty smart low-budget sci-fi comedy, with a likeable British cast (O'Dowd as Ray, the science fiction [NOT "sci-fi"!] nerd, Wootton as Toby, the optimistic writer, and Kelly as Pete, the skeptic) and Anna Faris as the time leak-fixing love interest, Cassie. Funny in it's simplicity - the bathroom is a time machine and they keep ending up the same same pub, just at different times. Follows lots of the "rules" (don't touch 'yourself', etc.) and its quick and fun, with a great ending.
(us) wrote: Very dated horror film which I found more funny than scary due to the over the top special effects!
(jp) wrote: Great performances by Meryl Streep and Renee Zellweger. Also liked the retrospective and discovery of hidden truths a child's memory vanished in favor of the most compatitble parent.

(fr) wrote: This has all the right ingredients for a low budget 80s slasher cheeseball including a young Vanna White and a woodworking teacher named George Michaels. Enjoy!
(gb) wrote: Smart thriller that reminded me of "Cape Fear" but made more complex when it's not so clear who the real bad guy is, in this story of the unstable Robert Ryan looking to get revenge on Van Feflin for collaborating with the Nazi's while both were in a POW camp.
