For hundreds of years, Africa has existed in a state of despair. Famine, civil wars and rampant disease have left the continent without hope, but for the efforts of Western do-gooders. At first, they arrived with food, bibles and the magic of penicillin; more recently they have hosted rock concerts and sent plane loads of grain. And in the last decade of the 20th century they arrived and took babies home with them. First there was Angelina, then Madonna, and now...Pauly Shore! The film builds its comedy foundation on the international interest in Celebrity Adoptions, and the debate that surrounds these transactions on both sides of the Atlantic. Sometimes politically incorrect and never scared to tread on manicured toes.

(us) wrote: Beautiful Losers is a documentary on the do it yourself art culture that became prominent in the early 90s. It interviews several now famous artists that had their beginnings in finding each other, hanging out and creating things that interested them. The stories, art and history are well presented and interesting though there are times when the stories and views expressed by the artists can begin to feel repetitive. This documentary got me to think about a few things unrelated to its explicit presentation. The first thing I noticed was how much of a Gen X phenomenon the whole movement was. All of the artists exhibit very similar postmodern, post-structuralist views and attitudes. While that is in no way a denigration of the work they did or they influence they've had it does compartmentalize them to some extent and reveal limitations to continued influence. This makes me wonder what kind of influence and ideas Millenials will come up with relative to art during our time. Is there anything left to do in art once DIY street art has been done ad nauseam? I saw a video of a TED presentation where a lady gave a defense for why she believed video games is a legitimate possibility for "high art". She compared video games in its current stage to the beginnings of language and drawing. In the beginning they were means for simple communication, poetry and artistic expression came later. Video games are just beginning to explore areas beyond the traditional conception of the win-lose game. Will this be the realm of our contribution to art history and aesthetic evolution? Another thing I began to wonder is what exactly makes a person passive? Some of the videos of the gallery shows are unintentionally funny because the viewer watches a bunch of yuppies and hipsters walk around consuming more of the same ideas and "creativity" that have turned them into another brick in the wall of a mass homogeneous cliche. The street art movement has been trying to battle a kind of passivity in the aesthetic of the urban environment of sameness of colors and materials in the buildings. This then ends up having implicit or explicit critiques of consumerism, technoculture, urbanization, suburbanization and the politics that underlie much of these phenomena. However, for all the ingenuity and originality it seems like one kind of passivity has been traded for another. Inundated by the passivity of apathy represented by mass culture, brick, concrete and steel we swing to another end where we accept media overload: billboards, music always playing, latest movies, life determined by the tv schedule, etc. In street art's best Brechtian moments hasn't it become little more than the cultural equivalent of the internet pop up ad demanding everyone's attention to some idea or way of seeing? I think the most interesting questions and thoughts this documentary raises are those it probably didn't intend to raise. Where is art headed? What will the next generation do? Can art continue to distinguish itself or is it bound to eventually repeat itself and become a rehashing of everything that's been done before?

(ru) wrote: I really wanted to like this one. Having caught it on TV one day and for whatever reason, didn't finish it, finally got around to watching the whole thing. I'm a fan of kung fu movies and do enjoy the East meets West type films like Rush Hour, this movie wasn't that good. Chow Yun-Fat is a monk destined with the task of protecting a sacred scroll from Tibet that gives its possessor youth and immortality. The Nazis try to take it but were unable to. So naturally, the story moves into present day New York. Sean William Scott is a pickpocket thief who also works at a Chinese theater where he learns kung fu from the movies. The Nazi general who originally tried to get the scroll originally is still alive and is trying to get it from a young Chow Yun Fat. You know what's going to happen from there. Unfortunately, the story never really gels into that great comedy or great kung-fu flick, instead it straddles both lines, but does neither well.

(ag) wrote: Rudy is a good sports drama, though it isn't without its flaws. Sean Astin is great, and the rest of the cast is pretty good. The story is simple yet effective, it makes you feel for the character. Some of the writing needed improvement, it was a bit cheesy at times. Its exactly what you'd expect, a fairly predictable yet enjoyable and well made movie about the underdog. Its well made, but doesn't do anything new for the genre or to make you remember it that well. Rudy is still a good movie though, despite being a bit derivative. Rudy gets 3/5 stars (B-).

(fr) wrote: Not good. You're supposed to cheer on Justin Long's character, but you will find yourself completely indifferent to whether he wins the girl (Woods) in the end. The premise is silly and nothing about the film is endearing enough to rescue it from that.

The only question left to mystery here is why would anyone want to sit through this? Lots of people far smarter than me seem ro like it, but I certainly did not!
(ag) wrote: Wendy and Lucy is a slice-of-life drama about a woman who hits some roadblocks when she stops in a small town on her way to Alaska. This film is extremely slow to develop. The script doesn?t give us much detail about Wendy or why she is doing anything. There are subtle hints laid out as the movie progresses but if you like to know back story, motivations, or any significant detail about the main character when you watch a movie, then this one will infuriate you. I actually found it relatively tolerable, mostly because I kept expecting there would be a big reveal. When the movie ended and I still felt like I knew as little about Wendy as I did when the movie started, I was a little disappointed. The events that happen to Wendy are very human struggles, and that aspect at least allows us to connect with her and feel sympathy for what she is going through. The overall feel of Michelle Williams? performance was very melancholy, and since every single moment revolves around her, the whole film had the same tone. This is the second movie I?ve seen that was directed by Kelly Reichardt and it seems she likes making movies that don?t have big moments. There are no dramatic swells in this movie, but I suppose that makes it feel more authentic or real-to-life. What it doesn?t do is make the movie fun to watch. Wendy and Lucy held my attention for the full run-time, but didn?t impact me in any way even in the most emotional moments.
