In 1933, 20,000 Japanese soldiers and 50 tanks invaded the Pa Tou Lou Tzu, a strategic key point of the Great Wall. With only seven men stationing, these heroes took on the entire army for five days before succumbing. Director Chang Cheh recreated this epic battle with his favorite cast including Ti Lung, David Chiang, Alexander Fu Sheng and Chen Kuan-tai, as a celluloid tribute to these nameless souls. .

Adam K (us) wrote: Whimsical German comedy about a twentysomething Berlin slacker trying to find a cup of coffee and some meaning to his life. Traces of Woody Allen in its black and white photography and jazz soundtrack this seems quite inconsequential until it takes a more serious turn in its last fifteen minutes or so. Worth a look.
Helene I (ag) wrote: This is a smart, funny movie, which pokes good fun at some institutions which deserve it. I enjoyed it and think most people with an understanding of the political climate will get a kick out of it, along with a lot of laughs.
Mikael K (jp) wrote: In 1977 a Lufthansa flight was hijacked by Palestinian extremists who demanded the release of imprisoned Red Army Fraction members by the German government. The terrorists took the plane to Somalia and started a long survival struggle for the passangers aboard the plane. "Mogadischu" is Roland Suso Richter's intense TV-movie depicting this struggle.The picture is an intence experience. It's told as a thriller but not in a tasteless manner, giving the center stage to human resourcefulness through well established characters. The feel here is of a documentary re-enactment, but there are enough creative achievements present to make "Mogadischu" a work of cinematic art. This is thrilling and smart material, dramatic but not overly dramatized.
Jonny P (us) wrote: "Extreme Measures" was interesting but far from what I expected. The characteristic that works in this film's favor is its mystery. I cannot imagine any person watching the first sequence without really wanting to know what is wrong with the two guys. The film builds to its mid-point where the script reveals a well-designed reason for the paralysis/unintelligence. Unfortunately, this film is rather flat outside of its mystery. Gene Hackman's acting is always top notch (and this performance is no exception), but Hugh Grant does not do well in this dramatic role. I couldn't have cared less about Sarah Jessica Parker's character and even Bill Nunn wasn't in his best form (and I love him in EVERYTHING!) In addition to better acting, this film could have used a healthy dose of realism. I found the entire thing to be so farfetched that I wished that they would've resolved the mystery, explained the motivations for these experiments, and avoided ransacked apartments and underground slums. "Extreme Measures" is worth a watch if there isn't anything better on, but there are many dramas and thrillers that need to appear on your list before this one.

Christina E (nl) wrote: A horror fan must see. This film holds the record for the longest rape scene in history (roughly 25 minutes), has been banned and has no musical score. Yet, all of those things combine to create an experience you'll never forget.
