King Henry II of England has trouble with the Church. When the Archbishop of Canterbury dies, he has a brilliant idea. Rather than appoint another pious cleric loyal to Rome and the Church, he will appoint his old drinking and wenching buddy, Thomas Becket, technically a deacon of the church, to the post. Unfortunately, Becket takes the job seriously and provides abler opposition to Henry.

(us) wrote: An interesting if a bit overwrought way to showcase the civil rights movement over the decades, in addition to a study of the evolution of a particular form of servant class in contrast to the revolution going on outside. What I found most impressive in the storyline was how they rehearsed for the sit-ins. It's obvious now that it's been pointed out, but it had never occurred to me that they'd practice all the horrible things that would be done to them.

(jp) wrote: Ugh! "Miracle Mile" has an interesting premise (The main character picks up a payphone and hears that the nukes are flying. Was it true? What do you do?). I'd love to see this rewritten and filmed, but I won't hold my breath. As made, it reminds me of an old grindhouse film without the T&A or graphic violence, just the bad plot, hokey writing, and terrible pacing. Or maybe it's more like an 80s porn movie without the sex (baaw ba ba baaw baaw). Anthony Edwards borrows Don Johnson's Miami Vice wardrobe and wanders the streets like an idiot. Worth watching only if you want to see every bad TV actor of the 80s in a movie.
