The Amazing Grace
John Newton is captain of a slave ship moored off the coast of Nigeria. He stands at a crossroads in his life, his morality and religion at odds with the brutality of his chosen profession. Stepping ashore, he starts on a journey of redemption that will end in tragedy but prove the catalyst for greater achievements. A local anthem sung in adversity by the slaves whom he captures punctuates the film. It will be the inspiration for Newton's redemption and for his writing of the hymn Amazing Grace.

On the other hand, the neighbours don't always know the person even if they aren't crazy, and they aren't always the best judges of character. However, it's worth noting that, for example, the Seattle police had a "Ted hotline," hoping to catch the man calling himself Ted who was killing women back in the '70s. Out of the thousands and thousands of false leads, there were four that actually said the right name--an actual Ted, as we came to know. I don't know who all four people were, but one was his girlfriend and one was a former coworker who couldn't quite believe that her friend was committing the murders but also couldn't make herself stop thinking that he had. It is actually often the case that the people who know the killer aren't surprised a bit. We do not know how often Bob Maconel (Christian Slater) has thought of killing his coworkers or for how long. He brings a gun to work, and he has a name for each bullet. The last name, of course, is his own. Then one day, Ralf Coleman (David Wells), one of his coworkers, rather steals his thunder. Bob was loading his gun, and he dropped a bullet. While he was under his desk reaching for it, Coleman began firing. To his horror, Bob saw that one of Coleman's victims was Venessa Parks (Elisha Cuthbert), whom Bob has long admired from afar. He sees that she is not quite dead, and in a moment of miserable desperation, he shoots Coleman and becomes a hero. Only Venessa isn't quite as pleased with him; she is a quadriplegic. Bob gets a job as Vice President for Creative Thinking, where he is directly under Gene Shelby (William H. Macy), Venessa's former boss. He is slowly falling in love with Venessa, who might not be completely paralyzed after all. They find in each other something to live for. Christian Slater's career has long made me sad. I really don't know what happened. He's talented enough; certainly other less-talented actors from the same rough generational group have had more lasting, more prominent careers. Robert Downey, Jr., has made something like three comebacks during the time that Christian Slater's career has made a general downward trend. Not that I'm directly comparing their talent, but they are only a few years apart in age. And every time we think Christian Slater might be coming back, the movie is terrible or the show is cancelled. (I'm looking at you, [i]Dolan's Cadillac[/i].) I suppose every generation must have an actor or two who squanders their opportunity, and I suppose in this case, it doesn't help that people have been making jokes since the beginning that his acting seems to consist of doing a Jack Nicholson impersonation. No matter how good he was in [i]Heathers[/i], it was a very Young Jack Nicholson sort of role. I'm not sure the ending improves this movie. I'm not saying it was bad. I'm saying it wasn't necessary. It was a bit silly, I think, though I know that there are people who would doubtless disagree. Actually, it's kind of the cop-out that I wasn't allowed to use in high school English class, if you want me to be perfectly honest. It also seemed a bit arbitrary. Apparently, there are supposed to be clues scattered throughout the movie that I am supposed to be picking up on, but that approach is tricky. You either have the chance of letting your clues slip past pretty much everyone or else making the whole thing so blatantly obvious that you'd have to be an idiot to miss it. I think this movie went with route one, and I think the problem was that they established before the shooting that Bob's world was not the most coherent one out there. Anything deviating from that world could be explained by the fact that this is the sort of man who spends his lunch breaks in a perfect illusion that he is blowing up the building. It does have moments, though the CGI of the aforementioned illusion is bad enough so that we never have any doubt that it isn't happening. One hopes Bob's imagination has better special effects. But anyway, this movie had the opportunity to say something, and I think it squandered that chance. We got a fine performance from Christian Slater, and William H. Macy played the confident type of William H. Macy character, but what I am left with is thinking about the list of those who have to die. Actually, I had a coworker many years ago who used to bring me chocolate cake. You see, he figured that I was going to snap at some point, and if I remembered the cake, maybe I would give him a chance to escape the building. Perhaps that's the real reason so many of these people are thought of as "the last person you'd expect." It's because they [i]are[/i] quiet, and they don't let anyone see the chaos in their heads. As you might imagine, that never applied to me.

(jp) wrote: Rita Hayworth's rise to the stars. Her performance is so sexy and thrilling at the same time that only watching her makes the movie pass like a short episode. And apart from that, this gripping tale of suspense, told in the most visionary noir way, makes Gilda as attractive as the woman who plays the titular role.
(br) wrote: An interesting look back at the creation of Doctor Who. It's a fairly standard miniseries production, with the common slow pacing and meandering narrative structure, but it rises above it by the obvious love it feels for its subjects. Even the flawed characters (and most are in some way) are viewed with sympathy and understanding. And a great performance by Walder Filch (I'm pretty sure that's his official name by this point) as William Hartnell, the first Doctor.
(fr) wrote: A "Quantum Leap" episode stretched to 80+mins. Not a bad flick, entertaining and a pretty slick premise. The ending left me a bit befuddled and wanting a bit more explanation on certain key things, but over all worth the iTunes rental price.
(ag) wrote: It's a bit slow, and not really scary. The movie is a bit like Blair Witch Proect. The characters film their experience, and we get to see it second hand through the cameras.
