The Night They Raided Minsky's
Rachel arrives in New York from her Amish community intent on becoming a dancer. Unfortunately Billy Minsky's Burlesque is hardly the place for her Dances From The Bible. But the show's comedian Raymond sees a way of wrong-footing the local do-gooders by announcing the new Paris sensation "Mme Fifi" and putting on Rachel's performance as the place is raided. All too complicated, the more so since her father is scouring the town for her and both Raymond and his straight-man Chick are falling for Rachel.

(au) wrote: now this was very interesting, I always liked the Sonics and the Thunders recent success I kind of was a fan of with the accept ion of pout face Westbrook. So to here that the city of Seattle (a city I would love to visit one day) got screwed in there loss of there beloved franchise of 41 years, I had to see this. A millionaire from a famous coffee company seemingly could have bought the team knowing how to drive it out of the city and then make a killing on the franchise only a couple years later, you be the judge yourself and watch this fascinating documentary
(mx) wrote: A great origin story that does not dwell on Hal Jordan's past but focuses instead on his character and personality. The stakes in the story may have been a tad extreme for an origin though.
(it) wrote: The only good thing about the film is the amount of lights and colour apart from that this is a really bad holiday picture
(nl) wrote: A pitch-dark drama about zombies, but it's not a zombie film. Both Kristen Holden-Reid and Emily Hampshire are great, and you really buy their relationship, the cinematography is fantastic at points, and the plot succeeds in getting you thinking. It is very sad, and the ending is ok. This is a slow-moving film, and it takes its time getting to its climax. Some may be bored, but I thought this was an interesting, different and dare I say intellectual film.

(mx) wrote: Overall, not a "bad" movie. A bit heavy on the mush, and at times, a bit too over dramatic. If you're in the mood for a sappy and sad movie? This is it. Otherwise? I've seen better.
(kr) wrote: As far as I'm concerned, there's the original, the following sequel and Halloween 4. Treat 1,2, & 4 as a trilogy and its way more satisfying.
(kr) wrote: At least they had awesome motorcycles, and one of the best tag lines of all time, "Deeds, Not Words." But that's about it.
(ru) wrote: "Bobo's dead, and i've had a miscarriage, BUT I'VE DISCOVERED MACRAME!!!!"for some reason when you finally see it with an Odorama card, it's like a whole new adventure. In "this filthy world" John talks about when he was making the Odorama cards he was told he couldn't make them unless they were so people could eat them and not get poisoned or something to that extent...i can't decide if i want to maybe just nibble a little bit off of mine.

(mx) wrote: Clint's painfully formula military film, where grizzles Clint whips into shape a group of undisciplined, snotty recruits (Mario Van Peebles among them). But who says formal films can't be entertaining? Although it's basically a 1980's update of "The Sands of Iwo Jima" it's an incredibly enjoyable film. This is essential viewing for Eastwood fans, but I'm not sure how much non-fans would enjoy the film (but really, who isn't a Clint Eastwood fan).
(br) wrote: We Own The Night" isn't what I thought it would be at first - another undercover cop movie. It's a pretty unique crime/drama with emphasis on the drama that depicts the aftermath of a police operation gone wrong. Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Wahlberg play two brothers whose lives have taken different turns, but who are brought back together when the Russian Mafia threatens to destroy their family.Writer/director James Gray's movie is a tense and gripping affair. The characters are shaped well and embodied perfectly by the actors (although Mark Wahlberg is really just playing the quiet, aggressive guy that he's always playing once more). There's a pretty exciting car chase in there and a bugging operation that will make you cringe with fear for the main character.That said, the movie isn't without its flaws. The first half drags on a bit, then it all goes too fast. Joaquin Phoenix' character becomes a policeman literally overnight and suddenly there's a concluding showdown, which comes out of nowhere and ends with a pretty unspectacular shootout. On top of that, most of the movie plays like a sequence of short episodes rather than one continuous story. Phoenix' character is too much in the focus of the story and the characters played by Eva Mendes and Mark Wahlberg just kind of enter and leave the plot without having too much of an impact on anything.Make no mistake, though, this is one of the best gangster movies of 2007 (just after "Eastern Promises" and way ahead of "American Gangster"), although it is much closer in atmosphere to David Fincher's character-driven "Zodiac". And Joaquin Phoenix is so good, he was robbed of an Academy Awards nomination. 10-25-13 5 stars
