American Promise

American Promise

In 1999, filmmakers Joe Brewster and Michèle Stephenson turned the camera on themselves and began filming their five-year-old son, Idris, and his best friend, Seun, as they started kindergarten at the prestigious Dalton School just as the private institution was committing to diversify its student body. Their cameras continued to follow both families for another 12 years as the paths of the two boys diverged—one continued private school while the other pursued a very different route through the public education system.

Jovi J (kr) wrote: Watched with my son. He is recently into power rangers and i thought of showing this original mighty morphin movie to him. He didnt know the robots and the cast so he didn't enjoy the movie fully. Effects is weak but it is expected since the movie was made in 1995.

Velen W (gb) wrote: The movie Little Buddha follows the journey of Lama Norbu, a lama at the Taro monastery in Bhutan through his journey of finding the reincarnation of his teacher, Lama Dorje, who passed away 9 years ago in the city of Seattle. After years and years of searching, Lama Norbu arrived at the Konrad household and informed Lisa Konrad, that Jesse, her 7 years old son, may be the reincarnation of Lama Dorje. At first, Jesse's parents were although interested by the idea and respectful especially Dean who sees about Lama Dorje's religion, they were quite doubtful, but after the death of Dean's close friend, Evan, everything changed, their way of seeing things changed and of course their view on Buddhism changed as well. Believing that reincarnation is actually possible gave them a sense of hope and helped them recover from their loss. There was another storyline about the story with a retelling of the life of Prince Siddhartha, who grew up to become the Buddha. Based on the Buddhist faith, little Buddha is a blend of the Eastern and Western culture. It contrasts the difference in the lifestyle and belief of the East and West. Yet it also brings the 2 sides of the world together in some way. Bertolucci brought color to Buddhism, which can often be a bland topic to make a movie about by telling it in a modern society while hatching the origin, traditions and the 'informational' parts of Buddhism in the film. By doing so, Bertolucci brought the viewers a good amount of information while not losing their attention like many other movies on this topic does. Little Buddha has elements of liberation within it, transforming and relating Buddhism to each and every one of us and our modern world without losing the essense of Buddhism and introducing the audience to the fundamental core for example the idea of reincarnation and the origin of Buddhism.However, some parts of the film did seem a little superficial at times, some parts of the film simply was not very articulate. For example they way they located the Konrad family. In the movie, Lama Norbu's student dreamed that Lama Dorje led him to the Konrad house, which is somewhat of an absurd reason to believe that Jesse is the reincarnation of Lama Dorje.Over all, I liked the movie, despite the fact that I found some parts a little bizarre, I would give it a 8 out of 10. It opened up a new horizon for me in terms of my knowledge and thinking on Buddhism, so if you would like to learn more about Buddhism but would also like it to relate to our modern life, the movie 'little Buddha' is a great choice.

Warren B (ru) wrote: Great classic film. Great performances, plot, and practical effects make Hellraiser a unique and stand out classic. Let down slightly just by some audio and image not aging too well. Though would still recommend to anyone that likes good movies

Oliver N (gb) wrote: Undeniably a classic and never runs short of pure entertainment, at its worst Raiders of the Lost Ark is family fun that's stood the test of time against many others of a similar calibre... And at its best, it's a hands-on action adventure, featuring an excellent Harrison Ford and enough intrigue to keep most audiences entertained.Verdict: A+

Robert B (br) wrote: Stay probably does not deserve as much of a rating as I give it, and I actually agree with many points made by those that give it a low rating; it is lacking in plot, suspense, tension. But if you love trippy movies with visual flair and you find normal movies boring, then Stay is a must-see. It has things in it you probably have not seen anywhere else.

Steve S (ca) wrote: The only thing that was really massacred here was a lot of celluloid that could have been used for good MOVIE.

Simon D (kr) wrote: Well, Johnny Depp did well to recover from this didn't he? This is a very poor attempt at smutty comedy which basically involves Depp and his mate being chased through hotel corridors by various unfunny goons for most of the film.
