Also known as The Mountie, The Way of the West contains a few flaws and some poor make-up but, overall, I enjoyed it. I found this film refreshing because of the Canadian content and the appearance of the red serge wearing Wade Grayling (Andrew Walker), a Member of the Northwest Mounted Police. I especially loved the unique behaviour of Wade's horse, Halifax, during one scene (I'm trying not to give it away). As westerns go, I found this particular scene new and, as a result, fun. On a negative note, I hate when Wade, knowing he is in danger, doesn't behave as so. After being caught one time without his revolver, you'd think the Mountie would adjust his level of officer safety? Oh well, just let it go. As a matter of fact, if you can let a few things go, you may appreciate this film as well. Especially if you're Canadian.
Julia S (ru) wrote: ??elary?? was a really beautiful movie visually and in terms of its story telling. It came off as genuine and true-to-life, especially the love story, which despite its unromantic circumstances grew organically into a realistic, deep, mutual love between the leads. It had little of the trappings of a movie depiction of romance but it was surprisingly moving and erotic in its gentle way.Beyond the love story (which wasn??t the entire focus of the movie), ??elary?? dealt with war (in particular, the ugliness of its consequences for those in the direct path of these world forces moving across the map in WWII), and how joy and even contentment can come out of something which is difficult and confusing and leaves one in a place where they never expected to be (quite literally, in this case). Eli?ka never in a million years would have thought that she would end up living as a farmer??s wife in the mountain village of elary, but despite her initial grief and depression, she finds unanticipated happiness. And her joy doesn??t come from completely losing who she was before, in a ??I am reformed of my city ways and have seen the light of weaving my own baskets and sheep farming and my life will be perfect now!?? way (in fact, she expresses her desire to Joza at one point to still become a doctor one day, and while she is living in elary, she becomes an assistant to the village healer/midwife and is able to put her medical knowledge to active use), but as a natural outgrowth of her internal maturation: there is the sense that she can be happy here, that she can adjust and appreciate the beauties in this unexpected circumstance and dwell where she finds herself with grace and joy. I also found it interesting that although Eli?ka found a measure of happiness in the village of ??elary??, the filmmakers don??t portray its isolation from the city (and the invading forces, at least for a while) as making it immune to having bad things happen. It isn??t some kind of folksy island of community and perfection. There are still the same problems (more or less) as one would find anywhere: people in the country may have a simpler way of life than those in a more urban setting, but that doesn??t make them more virtuous by default.This movie also gave me a wake-up call when I came to the sudden realization partway through of the implications of this film being set in (what was then) Czechoslovakia. It wouldn??t end in the way which I subconsciously expected of a movie set in WWII. A wartime film set in western Europe might portray circumstances as bad - as horrific, even - but there is always the reminder in the back of one??s mind (at least in movies made from an American or British perspective) that the Allies do eventually come in to ??save the day?? and stop the death and oppression. Whatever country the movie is set in will inevitably be able to rebuild itself again slowly, but surely. But these people of elary (as well as any territories which came to be under Soviet rule) have no one coming to ??save them?? as we would judge it, at least. The Soviet troops do ??liberate?? the people eventually (and in this case it is not a matter for much rejoicing ?? I??ll leave it at that), but as a result of that ??liberation?? they come under the rule of the USSR for the next 50-odd years. It was a bit of a shock to make that connection, although it sounds silly to admit that. It wasn??t that I didn??t know the history ?? I??m reasonably familiar with what happened in postwar Europe - but realizing the personal ramifications for the people on the screen was eye-opening.

Highly enjoyable.
David M (es) wrote: I remember going to see the first Mission: Impossible film (which is the one that starts in Prague, and has Ethan Hunt's IMF team wiped out, with him set up to take the fall and now out to prove his innocence) in the cinema back in the mid-90s. That was a good film.I also saw John Woo's M:I 2 (which is the one set mainly in the Australia(?), and concerns a lethal virus) in the cinema, but it (unfortunately) was really a case of more style than substance.I didn't get to see M:I 3 (the one where the plot involves miniature bombs-in-the-brain) on the big screen; only on TV, but I did enjoy it more than the previous effort. Thankfully, I did see Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol in the cinema, and I have to say: I thoroughly enjoyed this installment. In this one, the entire IMF force has been disavowed, leaving Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt and assorted members of his team on their own as they race to avoid a nuclear war starting between Russia and USA. Yes, it has the theme music again (wouldn't be M:I without it!), and yes, it does 'borrow' from previous films - this time with Ethan Hunt scaling the outside of a very tall building rather than a mountain. There's also a few cameos - right at the end - from previous characters, and a (further) tie to the original TV series with The Syndicate (according to Wikipedia, a Mafia-like organization in the original series) rating a mention ...
