(mx) wrote: Just like the last movie, I enjoyed Christopher Walken as Gabriel, his charm, violence, humor, and manic behavior was really good... Almost everything else seemed weak. Saint Michael was kind of a let down since he is the Archangel and supposed to be epic, since he cast Lucifer out of heaven... It was a fun watch, nothing spectacular, but a fun watch

An intricate film to say the least, you really have to pay close attention to this one, it's a sharp and sophisticated political/crime thriller that tries a little too hard for it's own good. City Hall is a cock tail of lethal madness, a snappy and uncanny film that highlights the corruption that can happen at the top of city governments, corruption that can and will spill down to the lower tiers of local government. It's kept me watching for awhile, but I found myself losing interest for one reason or another. I found it to be a bit confusing and the fact that it moved at such a fast pace i found myself getting a bit frustrated. Director Harold Becker (Sea Of Love, Malice, Mercury Rising, Domestic Disturbance) helmed this project and it's not one of his best films, but it's not a bad one either. City Hall, as confusing as it was, was a sizzlingly snappy film that's worth watching if you enjoy politics. Al Pacino is extremely intense in this one, and once again his performance is excellent. He carries the film effortlessly. John Cusack is great. Danny Aiello does well. Bridget Fonda is gorgeous and gives a good performance as well.
(es) wrote: An interesting sequel to "The Beastmaster". A silly & fun romp through time in modern day L.A. with the Beastmaster & his animal crew. Marc Singer reprises his role as Dar, the beastmaster.

(jp) wrote: The documentary directed by Louie Psihoyos is above all a political statement against ambiental hazard such as the hunting of exotic animals driven by commercial will, air and ocean pollution, and global warming. It is an endeavor to raise awareness and create a debate about those issues and so perhaps future generations may be educated pervaded with ideas of unity with non-human creatures and the environment. Gathering evidences and discussing with connoisseurs, Racing Extinction is calling for people and nations consciousness.Moreover, the documentary shed light on things we can't often see, trying to show a world of hidden activities in order to, who knows, make us empathetic. That is preciselly the case of birdsongs and whale songs, animals living in the wild - in deep forests or the bottom of the ocean. At this point the documentary talks with experts who highlight the communication capabilities of these animals as well as the pain they manifest when hurt by hunters, proving the obvious sentient faculty of them - which is important to remember these days because once, not that far in the past, they were regarded as little more than things. The sad story here is that we are losing more than their sounds, but their companion in this world. Another situation the doc. explores, emphasizing how little we notice or care about it, is air pollution. To do so he invited a guy who operated a camera specially built to pick up the specific light spectra in which gases are clearly visible. In the middle of a big city with that camera they film how filthy the air is. Bringing more to the surface, the doc. also investigated shady relations and movements such as animal traffic, from illegal hunting to illegal selling. For instance, they travel to Asia with some activists and participate in reunions in the black market while disguised as foreign entrepreneurs, wearing spy cameras.The most important things Racing Extinction try to display are the long term and the large scale processes we don't notice in the daily life, but they have real consequences, like the ocean acidification, the melting of glaciers and the toxic gases accumulating in the atmosphere.As mankind we are responsible for the high stakes of this devastation. On one side, big corporations and huge flow of illegal commerce, laws that have no interest in defending threatened creatures around the globe from greed and selfishness of some. On an individual level, the doc. criticizes a waste, urban and careless based lifestyle. We treat nature as a device, or worse, purely as a profit source, consuming and extracting limitless. The doc is a message urging harmony and respect for the environment as the challenge of our age.
