One of his friends and colleagues is mysteriously gunned down at gun point. An ambitious detective wants nothing more than to bring down the man responsible for the killing. He finds Ronald an easy, soft target to find the murderer. The Detective will have to convince Ronald it is in his best interest to help him out, and Ronald will need to prove to the detective he's going to turn his life around and come off the sauce if he doesn't want to go down with the killer."You got any chocolate mousse?""No, we ain't got no damn chocolate mousse. This is a bar, man."Spike Lee, director of Inside Man, Do the Right Thing, 25th Hour, Malcolm X, Miracle at St. Anna, Old Boy, Summer of Sam, She Hate Me, and He Got Game, delivers Clockers. The storyline for this picture is above average and fun to watch unfold. I would say this is a better than average cop drama with decent dialogue and solid acting. The cast includes Harvey Keitel, John Turturro, Mekhi Phifer, Delroy Lindo, Keith David, Regina Taylor, Fredro Starr, Sticky Fingers, and Pee Wee Love. "I wouldn't want you to not talk intelligently."Clockers is a movie I found fairly entertaining and fun to watch unfold. This wasn't a classic for sure but I will say it was entertaining and the plot was interesting. Overall, I would recommend watching this film once, as this is an above average addition to the genre, but this isn't a must own or in the same category as Inside Man or Miracle at St. Anna."Homo-o-cide."Grade: B-

Russell Q (nl) wrote: The Big Year is a really good movie! It is really funny, touching, and great! One of the best comedies of 2011. From David Frankel (director of The Devil Wears Prada, and Marley and Me), comes a really funny movie that has three great comedians. In The Big Year, three men are at crossroads in life, Owen Wilson (Cars, Cars 2), plays Kenny Bostick, a birder who is having a mid-life crisis with his wife Jessica (Rosamund Pike, Pride & Prejudice). Another one has a work-life crisis, Stu Preissler (Steve Martin, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles), is head of a company and plans to retire. The third person, Brad Harris, (Jack Black, Kung Fu Panda 1 & 2, School of Rock, Tropic Thunder), has a no-life crisis and wants to do something big in his life. Now all three men decide to do a Big Year - a competition to see who can find the most species of birds in North America in one whole year. Kenny, Stu, and Brad are turning this huge quest into one funny, entertaining, and awesome competition. The Big Year will make you laugh, smile, and happy! This is a perfect movie for the whole family!
