(jp) wrote: The People vs. George Lucas is a great documentary that explores how much of an impact he had on pop cultural, how much of a phenomenon Star Wars became, how incredibly special Star Wars is to the fans (briefly including Indiana Jones in that as well), and goes deep into the love/hate relationship fans have with George Lucas after the Star Wars prequels and Indiana Jones 4.

(kr) wrote: Let's be honest. The title promises such a special indie movie experience that it's almost reason enough to watch the movie. The trailer perfectly captures the feel of a movie one would expect of medicine for melancholy. And the expectations are met. The movie is wonderfully atmospheric , set in the beautiful city of San Francisco. Two characters, brought together by a drunken one-night stand, are not a couple one would call a perfect match. Yet, as the day progresses, each learns about the other, becomes aware of how different they really are but also realizes the mutual attraction present despite the incompatibilities. The movie lets us join this one day journey whose highlights are only visible to the most attentive viewers who enjoy arthouse and slow character studies building on atmosphere.

The director of Blood and Wine does well, but it's generally lackluster. Get to see a little Jovovich nipple, but this is just for die-hard fans of noirs or the actors.

A slice of life family drama that perfectly captures the beats of family life and how the people in them live. Its both funny and tragic and it has a real beauty to it. The performances are all brilliant. These characters live with you, you start seeing yourself in this family and your own family members.

British Lieutenant John Boles(Kyle McCulloch) is assigned to billet with a native family where he winds up saving the life of Geza(David Falkenburg), their young child, but then he ends up having to be saved, too. In his delirium, he thinks he sees Iris, his dead wife, but it turns out to be only Veronkha(Kathy Marykuca) who is in fact married to Philbin(Ari Cohen). The only problem is Philbin cannot remember much of anything, much less who he might be married to. One never watches a Guy Maddin film for historical realism(usually it involves being in the mood for something a little different) but it is important to note that "Archangel," one of his earliest features, is set in a time of uncertainty when nobody knows who is in charge or if there is a actually a war going on which is perfect for his dreamy style. That informs a lot of the relations between the characters which I could not sort out in a hundred years. That having been said, I still found enough to be intriguing and enjoyable to make it worth my time.

I'll leave it to each own's opinion whether this is a good or bad thing, but all the hyperbole aside, in my opinion this is a great movie because it showed what the area looked like in the post-watts riot era and was it a film that was created in the blaxploitation era but set itself apart from other films,
(kr) wrote: Death Wish is a good vehicle for Charles Bronson, who plays a land developer who becomes a vigilante after his wife is murdered by a gang of hoodlums. Interestingly, rather than presenting Bronson as some sort of unstoppable justice-dispensing machine, the film does quiet the opposite by making his character human and vulnerable to the dangers he puts himself in, even if the writing and much of the acting isn't the best. Although the acting and writing are not great, Death Wish puts some morally tricky ideas out there that may seem overly simplistic, if not objectionable to some, compelling to others - making this a "loaded" movie.
