Ten years before her death, Joan hears voices. Six years later, from the village of Domremy, she begins her mission to unite France under King Charles. First she leads a defense of Vaucouleurs against the Burgundians, then obtains safe passage to Charles, the Dauphin. He uses her, as the embodiment of the mythical "Maid of Lorraine," to raise an army, and he sends her to the rescue of Orléans. After Charles is crowned, Joan leads a disastrous campaign in Paris, where her brother dies. Then she's the victim of Charles's manipulations: she's captured in Burgundy, sold to the English, examined by Bishop Cauchon, found a heretic by the Inquisition, and burned at the stake.

Todays day of age is all about the in your face overdramatic flicks and if that is what you are looking for go elsewhere, but if you want a understated heartwarming drama that makes you laugh, cry, and well experience just every emotion out there you are in luck."Mr.Church" is relatable and sensible. We need more movies like this classic in our box offices.
James H (nl) wrote: This film seems to be a reasonable compression of a complex tale into a movie. It's not a nice story, nothing is how you would want it to be, but being closely based on reality gives the whole film an awkward edge that can grip your senses.

Timothy S (ca) wrote: Writer/director John Hughes did his best work in the '80's, having his hand in some of the best cult classics of the decade, but unfortunately the '90's were not so kind to him. He seemed to simply recycle his best hits over and over again, and "Career Opportunities" was a combination of two of his biggest and best. It imagines the teens of "The Breakfast Club" a few years later, out of school but aimless and unhappy with life and sticks them in yet another confined space and forces them to get to know each over all over again. That's actually the best part of the film. As a writer, Hughes knows young people far better than screenwriters half his age, and the developing relationship between Frank Whaley and Jennifer Connolly is sweet and convincing. It's basically every guy's fantasy; being locked up in a place with unlimited resources along with someone as beautiful as Connolly. Where the problem lies is when Hughes' monster hit "Home Alone" rears its ugly head as it did with so many of his films of the decade, once again in the form of bungling burglars. It doesn't even make any sense within the context of this film, and it feels so ridiculously out of place. It would have been just as nonsensical has the Mulroney brothers broken into Shermer High School in 1985. But until that glaring distraction, "Career Opportunities" has some nice moments and frank, honest dialogue that was the writer's trademark. He may have gone to the well one too many times with this one, however.

Wayne K (ag) wrote: The Harry Potter franchise continues to steam towards its conclusion with The Half-Blood Prince. The stakes feel higher than ever, the tone is dark but never overbearing, the characters are still great, and the whole thing has a very effective self-aware humour about it. The script takes several pops at not the only the character's situations, but also the plot itself, and they all had me laughing out loud. It's great that we can have a movie that is at once deadly serious and at times sweet and light-hearted. The second half isn't as sharp as the first, and lags a bit towards the end, but it's moments of grandeur, moments of character and moments of wonder make it one of the best in the series.

I love the choice to film in black-and-white because it just seems right for the style of movie. The marvelous thing they did in this movie was using an actual father-daughter pair, because you could feel the connection between the characters even when the events or dialogue in the film seemed to be driving them apart. I loved the 2 main characters so much, and it was nice how they were slowly growing closer and becoming more defined characters as the movie went on. It's kind of amazing how charming they can make a pair of crooks, yet you find yourself completely rooting for them to be successful. I think my only stumbling block in the movie was the entire sequence with Madeline Kahn. She is a simply amazing actress, so connecting her with any complaint feels foolish, but I just didn't like the way her presence broke up the flow of the film. It was as if there was this consistent journey I was taken on, and suddenly it took a detour into an extended sub-plot which didn't do enough to keep the main story going. If it were shortened or perhaps rewritten a little I think it might have worked, but as it stood, it was the one time when I started to lose interest. However, despite this slow section in the middle, I was completely in love with Paper Moon and I think it is a movie that most people would enjoy.
