Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer
British documentarian Nick Broomfield creates a follow-up piece to his 1992 documentary of the serial killer Aileen Wuornos, a highway prostitute who was convicted of killing six men in Florida between 1989 and 1990. Interviewing an increasingly mentally unstable Wuornos, Broomfield captures the distorted mind of a murderer whom the state of Florida deems of sound mind -- and therefore fit to execute. Throughout the film, Broomfield includes footage of his testimony at Wuornos' trial.

(fr) wrote: One line summary: Just as flipping bad as it looks.----------------------- Jack Turner and Rosie Gray are a couple who are proofing a submarine/AI system that is shaped like a shark. That is the Mecha Shark. The AI is 'Nemo,' a voice-only character. The world is a tizzy about rampant megalodons; those would be the Mega Sharks. So, there is at least one Mega Shark that is headed to Australia, to an ancestral mating ground. Great. In the midst of all this macro-disaster, there is a little girl looking to stay hidden from her mother. This is some joke that the screenwriter apparently thought was funny. Guess again. That somehow snags Rosie's efforts. The Mecha Shark has an amphibious mode. Nero gets lost in cyberspace, and the shark becomes just as big a problem as Mega Shark. Will Mecha Shark stop reaping destruction in Australia? Will the Mega Shark get put down? Will Elisabeth and Christopher get into some better movies and stay out of this sort of nonsense?--------Scores------ Cinematography: 5/10 There are some nice aerials and shots of US naval vessels. The CGI is hit or miss, mostly miss. Sound: 2/10 Mostly not a factor, but the background music is truly poor. Acting: 4/10 I liked Elisabeth Roehm in American Hustle and Law and Order. I liked Christopher Judge in Stargate SG1. Debbie Gibson was her usual bubbly self. Past those three, we had performances that are beneath amateurish. Even the veterans must have had a tough time not barfing at the bad dialog. Screenplay: 2/10 Poor dialog. The script has about 15 minutes of story spread over 85 minutes.

(it) wrote: Invictus is an exciting and motivationally touching experience. You will find this movie to be breathtaking and inspiring. Whether or not you want a confidence booster or just simply want to see a good movie, Invictus is your film to watch. Starring Morgan Freeman as (Nelson Mandela) and Matt Damon as Francois Pienaar. The movie genre could be associated to other movies like Rudy, and Remember the Titans. Both of which endure conflicts involved within the realm of Football while Invictus has more to do with rugby, the conflict is similar but on a national stage. While the movie does star a rugby team in South Africa, it could be compared to other movies like The Butler, which is a movie about racial divisions within the United States during the 1960's. Invictus associates the racial issues that occurred within South Africa during the 1990's which subsequently brought the country together through its national rugby team. The movie is based off the events that occurred in South Africa when Nelson Mandela ran for president in 1993. The movie features a rugby team called the "Springboks." This team had received some scrutiny within its own country during the 1990's because the people felt like it only partially represented themselves. In the early 1990's Nelson Mandela was released from prison after 27 years. He was there because he stood up against the government in behalf of human rights. Following him leaving prison he ran for President of South Africa and won! Despite winning Mandela is left with a broken country that is utterly divided. In his attempts to bring the country together, he decided to unite the country through its national rugby team (Springboks). The movie ultimately took a turn when Mandela made a bold move by inviting Francois who was the rugby team captain into his office. Mandela admonished Francois about his plans to utilize the rugby team as a racial instrument to unite the country of Africa. At the time the rugby team had been suffering many losses. Francois took this challenge to heart and saw the vision of Mandela and ran with it. After many attempts to unite this team, they did end up winning many games and ended up making it to the world cup! These inspiring events leading up to that moment where the springboks united the country will surely shed a tear or two.The beauty of this story is brought together in love as an entire country finds themselves completely united as they watch their team play in this tremendous journey of unification. Although, the outcome of this movie is obvious, it will both touch and move all those who seek to be inspired.

(gb) wrote: At times a very beautiful film, but it fails on the most critical aspect of the 'love relationship'. Tyrone Powers may look dashing, but I didn't find him very charismatic. And Maureen O'Hara is pretty awful. She is supposed to make a transformation from hating Tyrone to loving him, but the turn-around takes place so quickly and so late in the movie, that it doesn't seem realistic. George Sanders seems to be having some fun, but I think he comes off too aristocratic to play a pirate. I was hoping this would be the pirate movie I've been hankering for (I didn't much care for any of Disney's recent fare), but I guess I'll keep looking... maybe Errol Flynn has something up his billowy sleeves...

Plus Rock wasn't well known, certainly internationally, when it first came to cinema; and most the references he brings are of his performance in the "urban" drama "New Jack City", including crack-smoking. Anyone who knows Rock's comedy will see another reference emerging, that of self-parody...It helped put him on the map, gave Eve a (nother) job and was a funking good giggle...
(gb) wrote: I've always been interested in J. Edgar as a person because there are a lot of rumours about his private life yet no one knows what is true and what is made up. The movie kind of touches on all those so called stories, maybe with caution as it does not exactly say he was gay or a cross dresser but hints at him experiencing both aspects. I think Leo does a great job as always but the film does feel long and sometimes drags on with nothing much happening.I think the issue here is that Edgar was a very interesting man and there is so much to look into and to show on a live screen that it would never work properly. I have always admired Eastwood's directing skills and i thought he did a decent job here too.
