When ruthless oil prospector, Daniel Plainview learns of oil-rich land in California that can be bought cheaply, he moves his operation there and begins manipulating and exploiting the local landowners into selling him their property. Using his young adopted son to project the image of a caring family man, Plainview gains the cooperation of almost all the locals with lofty promises to build schools and cultivate the land to make their community flourish. Over time, Plainview's gradual accumulation of wealth and power causes his true self to surface, and he begins to slowly alienate himself from everyone in his life.

(Dillon Freasier). . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

(kr) wrote: Since it's breakthrough in 1994, the Need for Speed series has stood tall as the most successful racing game of all time, selling over 140 million copies worldwide. The series now moves into mass media, but seems to have arrived late however, and as such, faces some very difficult competition with its film debut.Need for Speed follows Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul) and his pals as they race to get their own back on rogue racer Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). Dino baited Tobey into a race, leading to the death of his friend Pete (Harrison Gilbertson) and landing him in jail. To reach his rival turned arch-nemesis, Tobey must drive across the US in a bid to enter a supercar race ran by a man known as Monarch (Michael Keaton). If the plot sounds familiar, that's exactly what it is; if you've played the Need for Speed games or watched the many Fast and Furious films then you'll see the cameos and twists coming from a mile away, whether it's the bantering characters out of Fast Five or the final chase scene which practically mirrors Need for Speed Hot Pursuit exactly. To say the plot of Need for Speed is uninspired puts it too lightly; the film's plot, despite being easy to follow and proceeding at a reasonable pace, doesn't have a lick of innovation under the hood, making it difficult to take seriously.There are a few big names attached to Need for Speed but ironically only Aaron Paul comes close to turning in a worthy performance in the film. He brings a much needed layer of emotion, however brief it may be to an otherwise blank cast; but even then his performance falls far below the legendary Jesse Pinkman. It's ultimately a step back for the young actor. Unfortunately every other character is just as clichd as the plot they inhabit. Tobey's so-called friends are extremely under-developed and some of them are really annoying too; they're simply too over-the-top to be memorable. Imogen Poots as Tobey's love interest Julia reminded me a lot of Rosie-Huntington-Whitley in 2011's Transformers: Dark of the Moon in that she really doesn't say or do anything but instead merely fills in a place and looks pretty throughout the film. Dino is woefully similar to the character of antagonist DK found in ''Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift'' and regretfully Michael Keaton has been subjected to the same fate as Samuel L. Jackson in Robocop; tacked on to serve as a soulless commentator on the action rather than a direct participant. Like so many game adaptations before it, Need for Speed's characterisation is as basic as it comes, chucking development out the window to place a primary focus on the action.Need for Speed may suffer from a derivative plot and minuscule character development but where it does redeem itself a little is through its action and cinematography; the car stunts, races and other set-piece moments are all fully practical with not a single computer generated effect in sight. The helicopter lift and police escape sequences are particular highlights which really capture the feel of the game series the movie is based on. The film also boasts some great cinematography with a variety of wide, short and point of view shots which keep the action visible whilst rarely devolving into shaky territory. With that said, the action sequences fall short of being the best in the genre as its competitors have continued to push the envelope over the years. The music is fairly basic, not really complimenting the film very well so instead the film's audio is mainly comprised of various car engines and skids along the tarmac, enough to satisfy the film's target audience and little more. The technical presentation of Need for Speed is generally well done but all told it cannot save the overall package.Need for Speed probably would have been the best film of its kind had it been released fourteen years ago, but as it stands the film comes off as yet another shameless cash-in riddled with clichs and derivative production choices. Speed demons and car lovers will get some enjoyment from the practical stunts but overall you'll get much more entertainment value by playing the games themselves. The search for a solid game-to-movie tie-in goes on...

(mx) wrote: Kevin Smith(TM)s self-distributed passion project Red State? is a swift change of pace for the writer/director, as he curves away from straight comedy toward an indefinable genre mash-up of horror, action and religious and political satire. There are some laughs sprinkled here and there, but not the kind Smith is known for. Red State? can be split into two separate movies. The first half follows three horny teenagers (Michael Angarano, Nicholas Braun & Kyle Gallner) who meet a woman online, and decided to drive out to middle of nowhere to meet with her for sex. These kids live in a town that is plagued by a radical religious group a la the real life Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, called the Five Points Church. It is run by Pastor Abel Cooper (Michael Parks), a man of fire and brimstone who delivers a chilling sermon in his first scene, reassuring the rest of the Cooper clan of his undying devotion to God.I fear God,? Abel tells his family. You better believe I fear God,?The three teenagers travel to Cooper(TM)s Dell, the center of worship for the Five Points Church, to get lucky, but are unexpectedly drugged and taken prisoner by the Cooper family. Abel believes the lecherous teens deserve to die, and he runs his church on a firm belief in cleansing the earth of those who he sees as sinners. Brutal images follow, as we experience the full cruelty of Abel Cooper and his family, on their captive sinners. Other members of the Cooper family include Abel(TM)s daughter, Sara (Oscar winner Melissa Leo), and granddaughter Cheyenne (Kerry Bish (C)).A slip up in the Cooper(TM)s plans for the teenagers, in which a Sheriff(TM)s deputy gets shot, leads to an all out shooting war between the Cooper family and an ATF squad led by Agent Joseph Keenan (John Goodman) stationed outside the church. The big shootout makes up the second, and more action-packed movie within Red State.?As Abel Cooper, Parks gives yet another fascinating performance. The character actor often plays supporting roles in Quentin Tarantino films, such as Kill Bill? and the exploitation extravaganza Grindhouse.? Parks is always memorable for his particular delivery, and as cool a screen presence as you can get. In Red State,? he creates a more sinister character than he has ever played before.Smith(TM)s films have always been structured around dialogue driven scenes, punctuated by blunt profanity and a strange sincerity that has become a trademark of Smith(TM)s best work, including Chasing Amy? and Clerks.? Unfortunately, little of that sincerity can be seen here, except in one crucial scene where Goodman(TM)s character discusses human nature to his superiors. The angle Smith takes to satirize and exploit religious fanaticism is an interesting one that could have very well worked.But the potential offered by the set up of Red State? is literally shot full of holes in the second half, when the second amendment is heavily invoked in lieu of a more thoughtful, sincere approach to the material. Instead, what we get is a prolonged standoff during which a lot of people are killed, and few lessons are learned. Red State? was shot in 25 days, and proves to be Smith(TM)s most visually impressive work yet " Smith and his cinematographer, Dave Klein used the RED digital camera system. The director(TM)s ambitions are admirable, it is just a shame that something more interesting couldn(TM)t quite get off the ground here. His religion comedy Dogma? probably pushed more buttons than this did, assuming he was trying to push buttons here.Smith has stated that his $5,000 effects budget held him back from creating the film he originally envisioned. The film inches towards a higher level of fascination in the second half, and then draws back again, revealing the restrictions that the director has discussed. Because of Smith(TM)s decision to distribute Red State? himself, the film was not given an official theatrical release, but was made available through video-on-demand formats in September.
