(ag) wrote: Only watch this film if you have an interest in Rich Mullins life (which was interesting). But as a movie, it was terrible.
(es) wrote: Ace Age 4 might be more charming than the 2nd and 3rd movie of the franchise, but the humor falls completely flat, and tries to get some laughs by being completely over the top. The 4th installment definitely lost all the charm of the franchise.
(gb) wrote: A beautiful, contemplative and deeply poetic exploration of the past in which Guzmn draws an intelligent parallel between our search for the origins of the universe through science and our general tendency to ignore our recent history, especially a chapter that should never be forgotten.

(mx) wrote: Gone is the iconic opening, self aware writing, and fun script from this new writer. From a story standpoint the inclusion of Cotton in the open makes sense but it's a shame that it doesn't influence the movie more. Dewey and Gale play catch-up for a full 30 minutes after Cotton's death so any forward momentum is halted, quickly establishing this as the weakest entry. The 'Friends' name drops have grown old but it's fun for a moment seeing Jay & Silent Bob amidst the cluttered cast. The movie takes the series to exactly the point that the first two parodied, attempting to ruin the cohesive story of the first two with a foolish plan and backstory. More disappointing is the real lack of Sidney for the first half, poor characterization, and shift in focus to Dewey and Gale; Sidney and Dewey are still the best characters. Aside from the memorable movie set attack and poetic final moment, the movie's bad, a shell of the innovation Craven introduced with the first two. How kind of the killer to punch Dewey so as to not stab him.
(mx) wrote: A completely performance based movie that for the most part benefits from the style. The characters are allowed to develop right before our eyes, which is really the most interesting thing to see in film. Where most movies use time passage as tool, this uses real time and relishes in it. I'm not saying it would work for every movie, but it certainly does in a relationship drama. The scene where RDJ is caught and scrambles for a way out is one of the most uncomfortable put on screen.

(it) wrote: 'Punishment Park' by Tanner HeickI found Peter Watkins' 1971 film 'Punishment Park' to be more relevant today than ever. With the current state of political upheaval by newly elected American President Donald Trump and his cabinet of millionaires/billionaires, one can draw extreme parallels between the reign of Richard Nixon and America's current political apocalypse. 'Punishment Park' is frighteningly pertinent in the 21st century even though it was released 46 years ago. The film is a mockumentary following the arrest and sentencing of numerous anti-war protesters during the Vietnam War in California. A pseudo-documentary film crew follow the defendants while they flee for their lives through the torturous California desert. All of the accused have the option of going straight to federal prison for an egregious amount of time or partaking in Punishment Park for up to three days. The movie is set in 1970 during the intensifying war in Vietnam. Anti-war sentiments were at an all-time high in the United States during this period. Many of the respondents were of all different sorts of movements including students, democratic socialists, the Black Panther party and the feminist movement. These people were vilified and ostracized by there then current political administration not unlike the current climate of right-wing extremists who want to Nazify the United States. Although it is fictional, the tortuous techniques applied in the film are horrifyingly relevant to the practices involved in places like Guantanamo. They are withheld food and water in 100-degree weather while running blindly through a desolate landscape trying to reach the final goal of obtaining freedom. Being hunted by the police state in the process, they band together in order to stay alive and finish the course. It reminded me a lot of 'The Hunger Games' trilogy in which a similar scenario plays out. I wouldn't be surprised if this film was the inspiration behind that trilogy of books. Overall I thought it was very well acted and directed. You get a sense that these are real people who are going through a very real tragedy of American injustice. It comes across like there was a lot of impromptu dialogue and adlibbing going on with the cast in the movie. That just makes the film resonate much more realistically. It's as if they truly were experiencing the desperation and anxiety of facing hard time in a prison or playing this weird game of criminal justice. The effects of people dying from gunshots in the desert was strikingly realistic. The greatest thing about this film is that it comes across as very true to life. Suffering dehydration and starvation while striving to survive under such extenuating circumstances is almost heartbreaking. You can't help but root for the accused and the hope that they make it to the flag at the end of course and that their sentences are expunged. The only drawback I really found with the film was the finale. Without spoiling it, it leaves you wanting to know more about the outcome of some of the characters and perhaps if there will be any retribution for the police state that is so overtly corrupt and ignorant. It is highly reminiscent of our current and future state of affairs in America. At the end of it all, this film should be watched with the current political climate in mind. I found it to be extremely apposite of what our future holds, which looks kind of bleak at this point. But I think if we continue to strive for transparency in our government much like the young people do in this film we can reign in on the injustices and fallacies that are perpetuating our modern administration.

Although his screen time is only roughly ten minutes, he's still able to steal the show. His court room speech was fantastic and is proof on why he is one of the great actors in cinema history. Based on the Leob/Leopold case.
