History books traditionally depict the pre-Columbus Americas as a pristine wilderness where small native villages lived in harmony with nature. But scientific evidence tells a very different story: When Columbus stepped ashore in 1492, millions of people were already living there. America wasn’t exactly a New World, but a very old one whose inhabitants had built a vast infrastructure of cities, orchards, canals and causeways. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Stuart M (de) wrote: It's rather hard to know what to make of this film. On the one hand it's a fun war movie about heroism stuffed with unique characters like Teddy Roosevelt. On the other hand, it embraces the gung ho nationalism displayed by those men entirely uncritically. They admit at the start that the entire Spanish-American war was started based on a lie by American newspapermen, and yet the conquest of Cuba is still treated as a great heroic act. What can one make of such a contradictory depiction? That the movie succeeds as well as it does is largely due to its cast of characters, most particularly Tom Berenger as Teddy. It is probably longer than it needs to be, with repetitive battle scenes dominating the last half of the film, but it does well at capturing the sense of enthusiasm that came from America's first united conflict since the Civil War.

Peter N (fr) wrote: Needful Things is the second-most convincing screen portrayal of the Devil on the screen, second only to the brief TV show "Brimstone." It is also the single most underrated of all Stephen King movie adaptations. It's worth seeing over and over again. It's always a tough set of choices to adapt one of King's huge novels to the screen, but this movie makes all the right choices, ending up with something that seems more powerful if anything than the original book. My only complaint is that the DVD publishers failed to use the amazing face-inside-the-bag image from the theater poster. I suspect that unfortunate marketing decision halved the sales of the DVD.
