Neil Young Journeys
In May of 2011, Neil Young drove a 1956 Crown Victoria from his idyllic hometown of Omemee, Ontario to downtown Toronto's iconic Massey Hall where he intimately performed the last two nights of his solo world tour. Along the drive, Young recounted insightful and introspective stories from his youth to filmmaker Jonathan Demme. Through the tunes and the tales, Demme portrays a personal, retrospective look into the heart and soul of the artist.
Neil Young returns to his birth Canadian province of Ontario to revisit his old haunts and to perform in Toronto's vintage Massey Hall. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

(mx) wrote: "Bad Kids Go To Hell" is Director Matthew Spradlin's dark, twisted homage to 80's teen movies, as only Americana contemporary film can. Co- written with Barry Wernick, the story follows a group of teens from the complete color wheel of personality mind-f**ked. It is an obvious sinister retelling, or new vision, on Hughes "Breakfast Club" where teens personal, and social turmoil's are exposed and forced into resolution. Only in "Bad Kids Go To Hell" the forced realization comes at the hands of one hell of a twisted, sinister story. The plot follows this group of elitist offspring serving detention for, well-you know- being a teen with too much privilege, without supervision, just trying to deal with school and life sh*t! Cause hey, that sh*t is hard-we all have been there! The film stars Amanda Alch, Chanel Ryan, Marc Donato, Augie Duke, Roger Edwards, Ali Faulkner, Cameron Deane Stewart, Ben Browder and Judd Nelson. The official plot goes like this: Six prep school kids from Crestview Academy, home to the spoiled offspring of society's elite, find themselves stuck in detention on a frightfully dark and stormy Saturday afternoon. During their 8-hour detention, each of the six kids falls victim to a horrible "accident" until only one of them remains. I am not going into detail as to the depth of how or why they fall victim as to not give away any spoilers. Just my review and thoughts on the movie.Everything about "Bad Kids Go To Hell" is almost perfect in it's utilization of nostalgia it tries to capture, with all the tribute images and backdrops that so epically scream "John Hughes". From the library, the character traits of the kids, (only more modern and less wholesome), who make up the cast, right down to the awesome Judd Nelson cameo as Head Master. The flaw (which is minor) is that it seemed to go hardcore in referencing the 80's high school flick but sadly no real dialogue reverb from the movie, what - not one kid could have found a way to declare "I wanna be just like you. I figure all I need, is a lobotomy and some tights". Okay, I know new decade , new social commentary. The film does have some very awesome quotable moments that I loved, my fave "I don't worship the devil, I just promote him". The cast where killer in their role and all had more than enough back story and depth of personality to bring the characters to life. I did want a bit more bravado, overt-expression from a couple of the characters. I thought they where more subdued than they should have been, but still the acting was stellar. Plus a hot cast can hardly ever go wrong. The movie's "spooky" element was a nice premise to keep the plot stimulated, (remember I am not giving any details away here), which seemed to put the kid's paranoia in overdrive, and the ending twist was cool. Although it almost came off as lame, thank god it was the ending, and not revealed earlier or the film would have failed, much like "Cry Wolf". The effects and gore are there but not really allowed to be the focal point of the moment which is kind of a bummer but still it didn't detract from the movie. "Bad Kids Go To Hell" is a fun, dark satire on High School life as well as basic social discourse that we all have to endure. Plus the subtext of how, based on generation gap and over extended lives, adults tend to view life and young people with a very distorted view outside of the reality that teens or young people in general experience (and vice versa). All in all this film is pretty excellent and a great addition for fans of 80's throwbacks or contemporary American movies, although technically it isn't a horror film it does have some pretty thrilling moments in true Draconian fashion. The real meat of the story lies with the way they reveal how each kid got sent into detention. The flashback is totally 90's "here is how..." stylization. Plus for some reason I got an early Rodriquez vibe from the film.

(ca) wrote: American History X is an American crime dram film, about a former neo-nazi skinhead, who tries to prevent his brother from going down the same wrong path he did. It's lead by an intense and electrifying performance by Edward Norton, competent direction, and a competent screenplay. It's has issues but they're not so major that they hold back the film. The direction is good, but it's nothing specIal, and the film is neither great nor bad to look at. The screenplay is good, and it has it's moments. It has great dialogue, and four standout scenes, but the rest of it falls short and/or flat, and some character development for Norton's character was missing. There were some pacing problems, and there were some narration scenes. Edward Norton's narration was good, but the narration by Edward Furlong (His younger brother) felt boring. An aspect I liked a lot was the black and white used during flashback sequences, and the color used in present day scenes. I think it emphasized well Norton's change and development as a character. Overall this film is good, and while it does have issues, I think it's worth watching and its worth your time.
(gb) wrote: This film follows the whole Fatal Attraction template of a creepy woman invading a home and family to destroy it from the inside. These kinds of films were popular with moms and housewives, as it is mostly centered on the mother's pain and drama when fearing for the loss of her husband and children and/or sense of basic security. The kind of thing you see on the Lifetime channel, usually (alongside all of the men-raping-vulnerable-women movies). The concept can become tired and lame after being done so many times.That isn't to say that The Hand That Rocks the Cradle isn't entertaining. Oh, it is. But it's only JUST barely entertaining. It's not going to have you leaping out of your seat, nor is it going to amaze you. It will, however, either get you laughing hysterically, or cringing so hard that your teeth fall out. If you're into family-related suspense thrillers, this one is worth watching at least once.

(ca) wrote: Fast moving western, entertainingly played by Welch and Culp. The villains here are alternately cruel and stupid, so the film teeters uncomfortably between aspirations of a serious western and a spoof. This is one of those pictures where the music has been mixed for maximum volume, rendering much of the dialogue incomprehensible.

(br) wrote: Here's one more movie about perfectly designed robots that don't turn out as planned. It looks good, and starts out okay, but there's just not enough here for a 1:50 movie. After about an hour things just fall apart and it becomes boring and uninteresting and crazy. Banderas and some rogue robots just wandering aimlessly around the desert. Banderas does a nice job in this movie, and Melanie Griffith is horrible. And her CG face, apparenly designed to make her look younger, doesn't help. She just looks like a poorly botched plastic surgery. Otherwise, the visuals are nice if you like a bleak, apocalyptic tone. But if you want a happy and fun movie look elsewhere.

It shows what he goes through and the absolute Hell that Vietnam was.Tom Berenger plays the Platoon leader and is really just a crazy SOB. The film shows the experiences a specific platoon goes through and the various personalities and how the coexist. The film isn't going to pick you up and lift you, but it is really powerful stuff.

(br) wrote: A beautifully passionate and moving film about an undying love that transcends unbelievable barriers. The scenery was enthralling and the story engaging. Although critics would beg to differ, I believe this to be an utterly wonderful love story. It is a must see for any romantic.
(it) wrote: Beautifully directed and acted love triangle story with a difference. Apart from containing one of the first male to male sex scenes in commercial film history, it reveals the problematic these type of relationships entail with a lot of maturity. There is an air of "joie de vivre" which exalts and celebrates intimate human relationships as well as family ties (specially memorable the family with the children Alex and Bob au-pair) and invites the audience to abandon themselves to them too as they can only bring joy and meaning to life. Peter Finch and Glenda Jackson are splendid.
