Rio 2096: A Story of Love and Fury
The film narrates the love between Janaina and a native warrior who, when dying, takes the form of a bird. For six centuries, the story of the couple survives through four stages in the history of Brazil: 1500, when the country was discovered by the Portuguese explorers, 1800, in events during slavery; 1970, during the high point of the military dictatorship, and 2096, when there will be a war over water.
Revolves around the love between an immortal hero and Janaína, the woman he has been in love with for 600 years, through Brazil's colonization, slavery, military regime and the future, in 2096, in the midst of wars for water. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

(ag) wrote: I went into Le Week-End with some rather high hopes after I had read a few reviews of it comparing it to the much adored "Before" trilogy of Richard Linklater starring both Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy. Like those three films, this film is primarily about a couple of people walking around a photogenic city and talking but this one is about two older married people -- Jim Broadbent (Iris) and Lindsay Duncan ('Rome') -- who are looking back at life while "celebrating" an anniversary as opposed to two young dreamers looking onwards to life and their futures. The couple loves one another but they are also annoyed with one another and all of this comes to light and while I like conversation-heavy films, this one was difficult for me to enjoy as I couldn't like Duncan's overly harsh character and some of their actions were off putting (they flee an expensive restaurant without paying the bill). Paris IS beautiful and the acting is good and I guess this is a noble effort; but I just couldn't force myself to love this like I do that other trilogy. I feel age-ist disliking this one but I don't think that has anything to do with it as Duncan's character isn't overly likeable and the couple's problems are universal for all ages. The long-absent Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park) co-stars here as a past acquaintance of Broadbent's and I enjoyed seeing him onscreen again. If only he were in it more ... Le Weed-End would have been more enjoyable.

Liv Tyler just bores me. Every movie she's been in that I've seen just doesn't do it for me besides Lord of the Rings. This could have been better, but its still a good watch.

(mx) wrote: Bizarre and slow. This attempt at understanding the inner workings of a small cult ends up just being really weird.
(nl) wrote: It is very rare that a film comes along that has one of the best casts ever assembled, and yet is so damned terrible. Rob Reiner's 'North' is the kind of film that just makes you shake your head and wonder where it all went wrong. Truly baffling.

(kr) wrote: Here is where the series really took a turn for the worse. The group heads to Miami Beach to help honour Commandant Lassard. Guttenberg wisely took a pass and his replacement Nick is not a value add amid mostly poor slapstick humour. Proctor saves this one from an even lower rating.
(ca) wrote: Bla Tarr's reputation mostly rings true upon viewing his work; he does not trade in happiness. Damnation is a bleak film, to the point that it opens on some creaky lifts taking people back and forth over and over again and only gets more monotonous from there. The apartments his characters live in are dirty, the town is constantly deluged with rain, mud is everywhere, the environment so depressing that a trip to a local nightclub where a woman sings about how nothing will ever be good again seems like a welcome bit of levity. The music is repetitive, as are the natural sounds. Someone recites passages from the bible about how god wants to kill us all. When people have sex, it is lifeless. And yet, he makes the case that in this lonely, desolate world, relationships present a means of survival, and that bit of hope (that is ultimately tethered to the inevitability of death, but I digress) is what elevates it beyond mere cruelty.I watched this because I was sad and because it's currently raining, and the characters' empty existences actually made me feel better through comparison.
(nl) wrote: Tuesday, August 6, 2013 (1987) Baby Boom COMEDY DRAMA Very relatable and basic premise co-written by Nancy Meyers starring Diane Keaton as J.C. Wiatt comfortable as an one-time successful single woman in the workplace until her life becomes a burden once inheriting a baby from a distant relative. Forcing her to quit as a result of choosing to do a mediocre project behind a backstabber co-worker she does not respect. She then packs her bags and moves to Vermont for a fresh start where she tries to adapt the baby as her own advantage. A film that is enjoyed by my mom and sisters which is a nice standard reflection about how women in general are able to triumphant after they can be unfairly mistreated in the workplace. A trend that is happening often these days about how 'single' women with children can become successful moguls without the assistance of men since they're as many parents with children customers as much as single people who have no children at all. Whenever I look at this movie, it reminds me about all the successful single women with children moguls who are writers, cooks and entrepreneurs. 3 out of 4 stars
(mx) wrote: Watched this movie in my Ethnicity In Film class, and it was pretty interesting. It was based on the true story of a white journalist who dyed his skin black and traveled the south, to see how whites reacted to him. He then published all his accounts in a magazine. Of course, he runs into many people who hate his guts simply because he's now black. He is even denied many jobs because he is an college educated black man. In one touching scene, he goes out to a club with three African Americans and they dance and have fun, and he bonds with a lady. it's a really innocent scene and clearly showed to any bigoted audience members watching that African Americans were just as human as any other race. I think this film is important, and pretty well done considering it's age. Doesn't look like many people have seen it, due to the lack of reviews on here, but I hope that changes.

(ag) wrote: This was remarkable and scared the crap out of me. I read the book eons ago, probably 1988, for a first-year university class back when I was earning my first degree. Not a Burt Reynolds fan, and having only seen two other works by Boorman (the great 'Point Blank' and the not-so-great 'Exorcist II: The Heretic'), I wasn't in a huge hurry to rush out and see the film. BIG mistake on my part, to be frank.Probably the gifted 83-year-old, Surrey native and five-time Oscar nominee's best work--and easily the finest work ever done by Reynolds, shortly before he simply rested on his laurels and became nothing but a caricature. THIS at the very least was proof that he at one time actually had chops and could act.The scariest aspect of all is that this goes on all the time and we just don't know about it. Hundreds of people go 'missing' every day. And, as a Canadian, it's people like the culprits in this film that are responsible for America now having the worst Presidential candidate of all time actually having a chance of being the head of the most powerful country in the world. Now THAT's scary.

(de) wrote: Taking a potentially interesting premise for a horror anthology movie and completely misfiring on every level, VHS is annoying, poorly directed, horribly acted, full of moronic characters, and utterly devoid of any suspense or thrills. The only segment that works relatively well is Amateur Night, which takes an overdone concept (found footage) and puts a unique spin on it by having the camera inserted in the main character's glasses. There's even an interesting, though ludicrous, twist that you won't see coming, complete with some great special effects.Unfortunately, the other four segments and the wrap-around all range from boring and mediocre to insultingly terrible. For an anthology film that has some very promising directors attached to it, this sadly shows none of their talent on screen.
