For one, I always have interest in watching films that won Best Picture, and two, when a film is known to have revolutionized a whole generation of filmmaking, I believe a true movie watcher has to experience what made Hollywood change in the late 1960's. Plus I've wanted to see movies with Sidney Poitier for quite a while, as he helped African American actors gain better respect in Hollywood. Considering that films with huge hype can tend to disappoint me, I'm happy to say that In the Heat of the Night definitely did not let me down.Set in the small town of Sparta, Mississippi, In the Heat of the Night tells an old-fashioned detective story in a very unique fashion. Bill Gillespie (Rod Steiger) is the sheriff of the town who is called to investigate a very, strange murder. When northern black man Virgil Tibbs (Sidney Poitier) comes to town, he ends up arrested as a murder suspect, mostly due to his race. Tibbs eventually reveals that he's a Philadelphia police detective who focuses on homicide. As Tibbs and Gillespie become to know one another, the more insane solving the case is.When the film opens with an epic Ray Charles song, I was instantly drawn in to the story. The message on anti-racism is very powerful, while still being very entertaining. Quincy Jones does a great job in scoring the film, with very unique instrumentations. And the mystery is extremely engaging, where it always leaves you guessing until the very end.The acting is also exceptional! Rod Steiger is outstanding as Gillespie the respected but racist sheriff. But the one who sums the film up as a whole is Sidney Poitier as Mr. Tibbs. Poitier's presence alone is flawless, as his character dedicates himself in overcoming the race barrier to solve the case. In the most famous and awesome scene in the movie, Poitier slaps a racist Southern rich suspect after being slapped himself, something that was improvised by Poiter himself! This was the first time in film where a black character responds to a racial attack from a white character, and it was something that shocked and moved audiences back in 1967! As racism still resonates in a lot of small towns even in today's time, this scene still carries out today, and it's what makes In the Heat of the Night so profound a film.It seems that the more I look into films of the New Hollywood era, the more I'm hooked into how interesting that era of filmmaking was. And In the Heat of the Night is truly a quintessential masterpiece, not only in New Hollywood, but in all of filmmaking! Norman Jewison, a filmmaker that doesn't really get that much credit today, brilliantly combines an anti-racism message with an excellently executed murder mystery. Both Rod Steiger and Sidney Poitier do fantastic jobs in some very unforgettable roles, and the pacing is brilliant! This is likely the best of the best of gritty, contemporary filmmaking, and I strongly believe that even 1000 years from now, In the Heat of the Night will still maintain a bold look at racism in small towns, and that every generation will feel inspired by the slap scene!"Your not going to do nothing. Your just going to stand there and shut up."

Christopher E (gb) wrote: A true marksmanship of how found-footage films should be written. Katie (Katie Featherson) and Micah (Micah Sloat) are a twentysomething couple who've just moved into a new home in San Diego, CA. Katie has an interest in the paranormal and believes that malevolent spirits have been following her since childhood, though Micah is not so easily convinced. However, after several nights of loud noises and strange happenings, Micah starts to agree with Katie that some sort of ghost may have followed them to the new home. After a paranormal researcher tells the couple he can't help them, Micah decides to take control of the situation and sets up a battery of video cameras so that if a spirit manifests itself, he can capture its behavior on tape. The found-footage genre is one of the easiest genres to enter a film into nowadays, making it one of the most saturated, overused, and dullest markets out there. But it's so successful for a reason, and that success can be traced back years ago to "The Blair Witch Project". However, I believe that this film is the film that really took the reigns of the found-footage genre and made it something real. The marketing for this film was genius. The way they advertised this film and distributed it was so clever that it captured the attention of many and deceived audiences everywhere. No one really knew the truth behind this film and it was one of the scariest films of the year. This film feels so real and so genuine and like I said, this is what found-footage films should be like.This is literally one of the highest profit-margins for a film in the history of ever. This film took a low budget and created a realistic, disturbing flick that captured the hearts of many. The acting in this film and the screenplay were very well done. It feels like we're on this journey with a real couple and that's what makes it scarier. The fact that we can relate to everything makes this film even more scary. We all fear that we may get tormented in our safe place (sleep), and that's exactly what happens here. The movie gets into your mind and sticks there.The film is suspenseful, scary, and smart. I wish the following films in the franchise were just as good, however, I hope that the found-footage genre can find the spark that this film once had in order to brighten the future of horror.
