Freedom Song (2000) is a made-for-TV film based on true stories of the Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi in the 1960s. It tells the story of the struggle of African Americans to register to vote in the fictional town of Quinlan. In the midst of the Freedom Summer, a group of high school students in the small town are eager to make grassroots changes in their own community. The young activists meet resistance not only from white southerners, but from their parents, who have experienced firsthand the violence that can result from speaking out. As high school students band together with the support of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, they make strides in registering African-American voters and gaining awareness for their cause.

Ce mangaka a galement cr 20th Century Boys ou l'histoire de la destruction de l'humanit. L'adaptation a t confie au cinaste Yukihiko Tsutsumi. Ce film possde des qualits mais aussi quelques dfauts. Parmi ces derniers, je noterais des effets spciaux un peu faiblards par moment et une mise en scne manquant parfois de rythme. Les acteurs sont dans l'ensemble corrects. Le point positif se situe dans l'histoire tenant assez bien ses promesses dans ce premier volet. On y voque par exemple la manipulation des masses ou d'une manire plus intrinsque la dsillusion des personnes face certains de leurs rves. Je dirais aussi que la mise en scne est parfois extrmement proche d'un manga, illustrant normment. Il y a aussi par moment un chouette humour second degr (lorsque le hros apprend un de ses amis que l'humanit va tre dtruite dans un costume de lapin rose par exemple). Bref, ce premier volet est plutt sympa et donne envie de dcouvrir la suite.

Cory T (jp) wrote: Boars can be downright merciless in their choice of victims as exemplified by the superlative B-movie 'Razorback'. The carnivorous boar in question eviscerates a pregnant woman, a toddler in his crib and worst of all, a vintage television set. Each attack is staged like an earthquake with the boar stampeding like a snarling freight train while the tremor-induced camera shakes uncontrollably. More than anything else in this rollicking offering from the Australian outback, the sun-dappled, orange-tinted cinematography is inimitable. It could almost be described as one of the most picturesque exploitation movies ever made. Of course, the film is chockful of hoary cliches like the barroom xenophobia of the local towards the American outsiders and the Robert Shaw-esque hunter with a revenge bent against the pernicious critter ("There are only 2 states of being-dangerous or dead."). There is also a jaunty dose of satirical bite around animal rights activism and whether these notably non-docile creatures need the crusading vocal support of people. The kamikaze visual energy of a young Sam Raimi sustains the film's momentum through a somewhat soggy midsection that prematurely introduces a love interest after the main character's wife has just been gored. Overall though, 'Razorback' is a rip-roaring juggernaut in the usually shallow pool of man-vs.-nature creature features.

When usually violent Detective Mark Dixon (Andrews) accidentally kills a suspect while solving a murder case, he does everything to cover it up, especially from the victim's separated wife Morgan (Tierney), when her father is accused of the killing. He spins a web to keep anyone from knowing-- will he fess up or will he get away with it? "Where the Sidewalk Ends" was something I really wanted to see after watching Dana Andrews and Gene Tierney in the famous 1944 classic "Laura" and thank goodness-- this one lived up to my expectations. Complicated plots are something I like to see in film noir, and luckily, this is one of them. As the web of lies Mark Dixon created gets bigger, Andrews' performance just gets better and better, as well as Tierney, who immediately becomes emotional when her father is sentenced for the crime. The cool little score for this movie emphasizes the realness of this movie, and how unpredictable life can become. "Where the Sidewalk Ends" is one of the best Fox Film Noirs, and anyone who loved "Laura" will really like this.
