FORGOTTEN MEN is a unique documentary about the First World War, with footage produced in 1934 before the outbreak of the Second World War. Presented by historian Sir John Hammerton, this extremely rare account of the horrors of the First World War combines original footage and pictures taken by official photographers between 1914-1918; intertwined with interviews from a number of ex-Servicemen who describe their own personal experiences whilst fighting on the western front – less than 20 years after WW1 ended. A powerful and haunting account of the horrors of war, FORGOTTEN MEN is a vital historical document, reminding us today, in this centenary year, of the many brave men and women who risked their lives to fight for their country’s independence in one of the deadliest conflicts in history.

The movie has the merit of being unpredictable until the very end, and a cast of actors not very famous (except for the strange presence of Mick Jagger, btw perfect for the role) but interesting for the project the directors had.
Woody W (nl) wrote: I did not have high expectations for this movie and purposely did not read any reviews before watching it. It started out good and the young actor Ben Keyworth blew me away with his performance.The movie can be broken down into three parts. Typically a movie has a beginning, middle, and end. The directors three parts are more like three parts in each part (3 * 3 = 9 parts).The first part starts with young Lucas being helping blind people who are stoked by a slasher who is praying on them until he slays the fiend.Then, without warning, the second part starts with Lucas going blind and everyone else, well, not blind.Then the third part, Lucas becomes the fiend that he slayed in the first part.This movie had a lot of potential as a study of a young person who is slowly going blind and the effect it has on his childhood.A remake of this movie might be interesting, but for this version, the best thing was Lucas' [size=-1]voyeurism phase [/size]as he watched Rose (Clair Holman) pose nude for a photographer on a merry-go-round horse, but then it turned sick because in part 2, you find out Rose is his sister. Now that is messed up.

Allan C (jp) wrote: It could be just because I work in education, but I am very entertained by Arnold Schwarzenegger as a kindergarten teacher. Even if the story stretches credibility, that's not why you'd watch this movie. You'd watch this movie because you get to see the unstoppable Terminator/Commando/Barbarian hobbled by a room full of 5-year olds. The film has a charming cast of supporting players that includes Pamela Reed, Linda Hunt, and the underused Penelope Ann Miller. The film was directed by Ivan Reitman, who I love the description his son (fellow director Jason Reitman) gave in a Marc Maron interview, that his dad takes stories and formulas audiences love and make them even better, while he (Jason) likes to take characters and stories that audiences hate, but then make audiences love them. My main complaint is regarding the action and police investigation portion of the story, which was certainly necessary plot point to get Arnold in a classroom, but all seems kind of out of place, particularly a climactic shootout with the ponytailed villain at the elementary school. Those action film elements are really not that interesting and awfully routine, especially when compared to the comedy, which is the brightest part of the film and is what makes it worth watching.

Yoonki C (fr) wrote: Nightcrawler, a movie from a directorial debut of Dan Gilroy, whom which written and directed this modern masterpiece. It gives you a sense of unsettling and tense feel as the film starts introducing us to the main character, Louis Bloom(Jake Gyllenhaal). He is a person who is well educated, appreciated, however, one who is professional acting nice and showing signals of appreciation, as it differs in the inside of himself. He lives an unusual life, a thief who always wonders to find a career to achieve his goals. One day, he comes across some people filming crime scenes as a sale for news footage as for their career, also known as 'nightcrawling'. And so, Louis Bloom involves as a curiosity into this business. As the film progresses, he gets very good and professional at the job, in fact.. he gets way too good at this job as he, himself commits crimes and acts in illegal actions. First off, Jake Gyllenhaal gives his finest role and performance throughout his career. He is absolutely courageous and self-conscious. He is fully engaged with that character, he withdraws himself and becomes fully the character Louis Bloom, which makes us the audience frightening and terrifying as we see him burst his way of performance. Also, it is so frightening how our main character Louis Bloom starts off as a protagonist, and as the film progresses, becomes an unexpected and fearful antagonist. However, so riveting and outstandingly written dialogue makes certain situations so exciting and realistic, adding unsettledness which makes us sweat in thrills. From these amazingly written dialogues, even though Louis Bloom transforms into an antagonist, we root for him, and we want him to succeed in every possible way, after all, he has committed crimes and taken illegal actions. Additionally, the last act, the last 15 to 20 minutes are the most suspenseful and hand-gripping finales that additionally decorates this film more beautifully. The streets of L.A look immaculately beautiful and flawlessly colored, which contains solid eye candy visuals. Overall, this film depicts the realism of the society as well as illustrating the character, Louis Bloom perfectly flawless. It is most certainly one of the best films of 2014 as well as the best-written script forms of this decade. For writer Dan Gilroy's first directorial debut, it is very impressive and unbelievable of what he accomplished.

Cameron V (fr) wrote: The Hobbit, The Desolation of Smaug, is a film based on the classic novel by J.R.R Tolkien. The movie features big name actors like Benedict Cumberbatch, Ian McKlellan, and Martin Freeman. This movie features the company of Thorin Oakensheild continuing their quest to reclaim their homeland under the lonely mountain. During this book the company journeys to great lengths, constantly hunted by orcs. The company is faced with many challenges including crossing through Mirkwood, a dark dreary forest that drives one mad. While there, they encounter problems through the rest of the journey to the long lake. The editing, costume design and acting is exceptional in this film, except for some parts coming off a bit dry. For example, some of the dwarves seem almost bipolar sometimes.The soundtrack of the movie also is great, it brings scenes together. Just like in Tolkien's book, there are also songs included and sung by the actors in the movie. Overall this movie was thoroughly interesting, draws you into the relationships of the characters. It may be 2 hours and 30 minutes long, but it feels as if you are watching an hour and a half long movie.Overall, I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for an action filled, well scripted film that will grab their attention and get them involved with the plot.
