Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011) - The IMF is shut down when it's implicated in the bombing of the Kremlin, causing Ethan Hunt and his new team to go rogue to clear their organization's name. Pretty good for a totally implausible action movie. star star star 1/2 (out of five)

Mulholland Falls: A group of cops investigating a murder in LA get involved in a military nuclear program. Sex, violence, cigarettes, hats, and the greatest set of boobs I have seen in a long time (belonging to a young Jennifer Connelly) in this under-rated star-studded piece of film noir.

The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things

10/10

EVERYBODY should watch this movie, it's so underrated. It's based on a book and I've been told that the book tells you a lot of details the movie leaves which is the case for other based-on-book movies. PLEASE take the time of your day to watch this movie, [Snip no no no! - luv4u]

Little Senegal

2.5/5 Started out as an interesting journey, turned out depressing and I didn't understand the point.

After working as a tour guide at a slavery museum in Senegal, Alloune goes to America to learn about his ancestors, who were sold as slaves and taken to the New World 200 years earlier. There, Alloune meets a woman who might be a distant relative.

The First Grader

4.5/5 I found it very heartwarming especially since it's based on a true story.

Based on a true story, this inspirational drama profiles the amazing determination of 84-year-old Kenyan Kimani N'gan'ga Maruge, a Mau Mau freedom fighter who wants to take advantage of a new universal education decree by learning how to read.

Bilal's Stand

3.8/5 I liked this especially the little sketches. Another based on a true story.

Bilal, a Muslim high school senior in inner-city Detroit, faces a big decision: His parents expect him to start working at the family taxi stand, but unbeknownst to them, he has applied to college.

"Right now, NASA's annual budget is half a penny on your tax dollar. ...—a penny on a dollar—we can transform the country ... , to one where it has reclaimed its 20th century birthright to dream of tomorrow." Tyson

PRESS PAUSE PLAY

4/5 star star star star

I thought it posed absolutely timely questions about the democratization of culture as a result of advances in technology, and the digital revolution of the last 10 years moving at breakneck speed. As to where I stand on the topic after seeing the film? I guess I'm on the fence at the 50/50 mark and can see the good and bad. I can look online and be annoyed at all the trash and noise that clutters up the cultural atmosphere, but then I have fantastic moments like seeing an incredible artist like jazz pianist/beatbox phenomenon Butterscotch at last week's ElbJazz Fest. Her industry machine is totally indie & totally self-powered by what's available to everyman via today's digital technology, and it's taken her from being a tv talent show contestant (5 years ago) to collaborating with Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, & Marcus Miller to audiences at jazz & hip hop festivals across the globe. Here's an online film synopsis:

The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent of people in an unprecedented way, unleashing unlimited creative opportunities. But does democratized culture mean better art, film, music and literature or is true talent instead flooded and drowned in the vast digital ocean of mass culture? Is it cultural democracy or mediocrity? This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world's most influential creators of the digital era.

Sadly I think the last movie I saw was The Avengers. It was basically the same movie as Transformers (fight over some kind of powercube, lots of robots destroying Manhattan) but perhaps ever so slightly better, which is not saying much. For those who haven't seen it, it's basically just two superlong noisy action scenes. One is around half an hour and the other is probably one hour+. It gave me a headache and made me glance at my watch repeatedly.

And oh, as I suspected beforehand the heroes were WAY too powerful for the enemies, so there was never any real sense of danger.

The Leopard (1963) - Prince of Salina witnesses the downfall of his nobility in the face of a new generation during Italy's unification. filmmaking at its finest. an absolute joy to watch. 5/5

Female Agents (2008) - a group of women, lead by Louise Desfontaines, use their smarts & allure in service of the French Resistance during WWII. Great seeing these women in action. 3.5/5

I watched Flicker last night. I thought it was going to be a documentary about Brion Gyson but it mostly focused on the dream/flicker machine he invented. It was still interesting enough, though I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. I actually built a dream machine for myself in my mid-twenties, though I never really got that much out of it.

Genesis P-Orridge was interviewed and featured quite heavily in the film. I used to find him to be an interesting character when I was younger, but everything he said in the documentary seemed absolutely ridiculous to me.

Lost Boys

I’ve always been into Vampires. As far as I can remember, since Kindergarten has vampires fascinated me so. There is proof of my love for these children of the night, as I am dressed like one of Nosferatu’s love child. My love of Vampires has died a bit with Anne Rice and out of respect for these terrifying creatures, I won’t even go near Twilight. But The Lost Boys, made me love these creatures once more. Truly, we see the frightening aspect of these vampires. Sure there was Michael Emerson (Jason Patric) as the self-loathing vampire, who’s character always tends to get on my nerves, but I forgave him for the final scene he had with David (Kiefer Sutherland), which by the David is truly awesome has a vampire, next to DRACULA I would say!! Any ways, I love the blending of horror and comedy in this movie. The Frog Brothers (Corey Feldman And Jamison Newlander) have the best lines in the movies, my favorite lines from them where the following, “ Holy Shit, the attack of Eddie Munster” And “ We trashed the one that looked like Twisted Sister”. The plot was pretty interesting. I liked that they use Santa Cruz Boardwalk to film. I Felt some parts of the film were bit rushed, bit I did enjoy this film

I'm surprised you liked this movie. I thought it was awful when I saw it around the time it was released. The other cool vampire movie that came out that same year, Near Dark, I liked a lot more.

My husband was in an accident recently and this is what his face looked like lol By the grace of God he has pretty much healed where you can't see a thing, but I HAVE to save this picture for him, his last stitches came out today and we need a reminder of just how far his ass has come in these last weeks, and btw, I'm sorry to say I fell asleep on this one falloff

Okay, I can see its appeal in that context, but back in the 80s, I remember many goofy vampire movies (Once Bitten, Vamp) so a serious and well-made film like Near Dark is the one that stood out for me.

Have you seen the Korean vampire film, Thirst? I liked that one too:

Oslo, 31. august (2011) - One day in the life of Anders, a young recovering drug addict, who takes a brief leave from his treatment center to interview for a job and catch up with old friends in Oslo.

Very sad story. It was a nice tour of Oslo though. star star star star

My favourite "Vampire" film (although i think it merges many different genres and the main being a romance). Park-Chan Wook is one of my all time favourite directors.

Puts hollywood to shame....as usual.

'quest for fire' --- worth watching, imo starstarstarstarstar

ray dawn chong was awesome in this role, and a micro-scale above niteri played by zoe saldana imo

everett mcgill and ray dawn chong star together in this movie. mcgill is awesome in this role.

GUERRA DO FOGO - QUEST FOR FIRE (ANNAUD) (1981)-EVERETT MCGILL/RAE DOWN CHONG/RON PERLMANnote: could only find this associated pix of mcgill with a spanish cover title.

not sure if this is available on dvd.

there's a recca/dvd stowe close to where i live that still sells vhs movies. when i ran across 'quest for fire', i'm all excited to take it home. i had read about it back in the day, and decided to buy it out of curiousty.

the viewing is unbelievable. all communication between characters is non syllable, just gutteral sounds in meaningful tones. also there's a scene between mcgill's character and some very believable looking hairy mammoths.

here's an overview of a movie well worth watching, imo.:http://en.wikipedia.org/w...Fire_(film)

(yes, i kept my vhs/tv combo unit for times such as these, as an alternative to my new tech stuff.)

Every day is a new day, and you'll never be able to find happiness if you don't move on.

This film is completely forgotten about now. Rather odd film. Famous director, fantastic sets (and real sets too, not that cgi shite), yet the story and script are so poor LOL. Robin Williams is Ok as Popeye and it's tough to get the original voice right (like Donald Duck), but Shelly Duvall was great though. She had Olive Oil down perfectly.

Oh, and most of the songs by Harry Nilsson were rubbish too. I did like the slapstick though, and the ending was funny. Otherwise a rather odd and perculiar family film...
