Role Models

Reviewed by movielover

Writer-director David Wain jumps effectively into the movie mainstream with "Role Models," a comedy that retains a bit of the sensibility and many cast members familiar from his previous films but should have no problem connecting with a wider audience

Miracle at St. Anna

Hxjgj7tqwadmmsnrjmzsv2yzvw3
Reviewed by batmancan


The Bells toll, red and white crosses appear on the screen, and I couldn’t decide whether I was nervous or anxious for what I was about to see. My father sitting next to me offered me his coat saying that when seeing a war movie its better to be warm because it reminds you that you are here, and not in the movie. Then, the opening seen starts. It is winter, 1983, in Harlem, New York. A man with a distinct accent walks up to the counter of the post office asking to buy some stamps. The recognition on his face is not nearly as frightening as of the man’s behind the counter. My heart stops as the man behind the counter reaches behind his back, reappears with a gun, and shoots the other man in the chest. Blood sprayed all over the white marble, and I had a feeling this wouldn’t be the last of it. As the story progresses, we learn that the man behind the counter’s name is Hector Negron, who fought in the 92nd Infantry Divisions. The most shocking discovery came when the detectives and the journalist found the head of a priceless statue. And so, as quickly as it came, we leave the 80’s for a bloodier time era that will seem to dominate the screen for the next hour and a half.
I don’t want this to be a big spoiler, so I will mention some deep thinking points the movie made. First and foremost, was the whole idea of good verses evil in this movie. We enter the movie seeing a group of black soldiers trudging through a field in the Tuscan country side. They are soon under attack by the Germans, and my stomach lurches as I see the number of American soldiers who are shot down by the rows. The taste of bile saturates my mouth as I see the stream run red, literally with blood. Yet, my heart lurches with joy as we see four soldiers survive the attack. Instead of turning back as many of us would have done, honor overtakes their fear as they willingly cross the stream towards the German enemies. Compassion is shown also by these soldiers when they find a young, sick boy, and take him to the nearest village where they end up fighting, and (all but one) dying for American freedom and democracy.
However, this seemingly heroic movie that seems destined for a happy ending, takes a drastic turn in a different direction. This is no “band of brothers” where good overcomes evil. From the very first scene to the last, in the WWII era, we are clearly shown the horrors of racism, when the Germans attempt to use this against the Americans. Also, Spike Lee does an amazing job at looking at the idea of good verses bad during this war, and the role propaganda has played. Throughout the war, the government has used propaganda as a way to create the enemy as terrorists. We see this when the American soldiers tear down the German propaganda describing Americans as monsters. We come to believe that the enemy’s only goals and satisfaction in this war is the killing of our soldiers. Thus, this false image is created that all of the enemy are the purest and most dreaded type of evil. This is why we find it justifiable when we shoot and kill one of their soldiers, because “if we hadn’t, they would have done the same to us.” And, if God forbid they ever shoot one of our soldiers, then they actually enjoyed doing it and are, as I already mentioned, the most extremist form of evil. However, what we fail to realize, is that they are fighting for the same reasons we are. They are ordered to fight; they wish to protect their families, homes, and honor; and if they do not we will destroy them. This is shown to us in the movie, when the German soldier risks, and ends up loosing, his life to help Angelo and his brother escape from the massacre of the people of St. Anna. The German soldier said that Angelo reminds him of his little brother. Through this we can see that the enemy is human just like us, and even though there is some evil acts (I can guarantee that when you see the slaughtering of children, mothers, and the elders of the village, you will feel as sick as I did.) we should not let this overshadow the fact that good can exists on both sides if we allow ourselves to acknowledge it. Another part in the movie, where it shows just how alike we are, is when everyone says the same prayer in their own language. This represents that we (the Germans, Americans, and Italians townspeople) are all united and alike in many ways, no matter how hard we try to fight it.

Premonition

Reviewed by Vaughter_girl

***WARNING - SPOILER ALLERT***

Holly Molly... where in the world can I even start with this terror of a movie?!

With acting from the famed Sandra Bullock and the sexy Nip/Tuck star Julian McMahon, you would think Premonition would be an automatic hit! But, unfortunately, it came nowhere close!

What a shame for a movie that sounded like it could have been a blockbuster! With a story that a first glance sounded interesting, you were only left scratching your head after the first few scenes.

Where did the story go wrong here?! A woman who is devastated by her husband’s death, is thrown back in time where she has to unscramble the days leading up to his tragic accident. Sounds like an interesting story right?? Well, unfortunately, the direction of the film was so bad, that you couldn’t follow the days, which were not profound enough to begin with. Then, random characters like Peter Stormare (who is typically a great actor in shows like "Prison Break"), are thrown into the mix, who leave the film more confused than it should be!

As horrible as the film itself was, the end of this movie was by far the killer of the film! After all Bullock's character went through, in the end her husband still dies (was the scene with his head falling off really necessary by the way?), but the movie is not done there! Bullock's character is shown laying down in her boxed up home, only for her to stand with a *GASP* pregnant belly! Which I suppose was suppose to signify that it was worth it for her to go through the past "week" of her husband’s death in the order that it did.

My take on it? BOLOGNA! It was terrible, terrible, and TERRIBLE!! There was nothing good about this movie!... So sad!

"Max Payne" is a banal revenge melodrama-cum-detective story, but fans of the video game on which it is based should not be alarmed.

Trying for reheated "American Pie" if served up by Judd Apatow, the raunchy "Sex Drive" is by no means "Superbad," but thanks to a likable cast, neither is it superbad.

Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead

7ij5hzqjwhhthmmkmsr4huu3dho
Reviewed by movieroomreview

Joy Ride 2 is another in a growing trend of horror sequels that uses a completely renovated cast. The original horror classic Joy Ride had a nice cast that included Paul Walker, Leelee Sobieski.

Joy Ride 2 follows the same general premise as its predecessor. It presents an ensemble of four characters who encounter the psycho truck driver Rusty Nail and when a member of the group is kidnapped, the remaining characters must go through a series of tests to track him.

The follow up was decent on intensity and horror for a lower budget sequel. We are disappointed in the growing sensationalism in torture and violence that is taking over horror films these days. New levels of brutality and torture combined with advanced graphics, make it tougher even for the veteran horror fan to tolerate.

All told, we are mixed on the entertainment value of Joy Ride 2. If you like intensity and don't mind the brutal violence, it is probably for you.

Cinderella

Reviewed by justashot

The movie, “Ever After” delivers the story of Cinderella, brings on modern beautiful woman from the 16th century, plays by Barrymore as Danielle, is as free and astute as she lays out against her situations scheming her only stepmother (Anjelica Hutson) excels as one of kind. Its movie works for all ages, contains youth, confidence, pride, like bring it on miracles of others on the lives of everything, and every ones around her, even so crowning prince of France (Dougray Scott.) The all around movie takes a magnificent palace, in front of no building blocks, stands up upon war, better lesser important than innocence.

Movie seem to be modern as it may have be, offers romance, relationship, comedy, includes in a little action, and an adventurous story of the centuries. Its genre of all ages, I say that, not only enlighten little kids, but delighted familiar faces in around kinds of households. Directed by Andy Tennant the movie achieves its purpose. Definitely, it delivers alike landscape that had realism, like color palettes painting on Mona Lisa, while facing weird oddity. The wicked dream like surroundings set up fires in the old fashion fireplaces, better than anything I could live in. Yes, the set ups are that good. They are as green house, beautiful grassland, and ancient keeps.

It opens with landlords welcomes the return of the householder carefully across through forests of green and yellow, best at his horses, or chariots pass by through out long routes of stony road of expedition. The final reach to the lovely home house lights out sparking sunshine, and lights up every bright smile faces around servants, children, and husbands and wives. Then, the morning sunlight brings the beautiful Cinderella girl while as she woke up holding a utopia book, focally walked away her place, engage in the most beautiful farmland, to the least, I could’ve ever seen, like my eyes. Screams of pigs, cocks of smokes above the house, rather went away quietly with no danger of their kind.

“Ever After,” intentionally brings out enchanting lives, excites the less budgeted comedy but that alive with wellness and happy smiles. It’s the family movie, has every go-lucky person, unwary any chances of abnormality. The come and go swords fight challenges, flash blazers up against a short incoming forthcoming movie screen, make what they are forthright socialite. Some popcorn movie has sundry taste of enthusiast comes out, this “Ever After,” save the day as the living proof.
