(fr) wrote: Based on a true story inspired by controversial Coach Ken Carter who benched his entire undefeated basketball team because of poor academic results. Basically our children's future need more inspirational figures like Ken Carter who put their academic's & future before sport. No wonder most of the young adults in the movie were failing with parents they had who considered a game more important than their child's future. Some call it cliched & predictable but considering it's based on a true story it's going to be as predictable as night follows day & life is as cliched as it gets! This one definitely goes in my best sports movies list. A very strong performance from Samuel L Jackson & he's not let down by the supporting cast.
(kr) wrote: This time I really want to say, "too much hand-held shots!" Haha. But I love the movie for the relation(ship) between the leading actor and actress, as well as Clara's mindset, which is so true about women at that age. There were lots of exciting moments which were very breath taking.

(br) wrote: How the mighty have fallen... Clive Barker used to make such good films too. Nonetheless, you have to see it. Scott Bakula as Harry D'Amour is a letdown to Barker fans... Well, I'll forgive it and Barker when "The Scarlet Gospels" is published!!!! XD
(au) wrote: Another take on 'Wild Strawberries' from Allen, this time alot more dramatic. The scenes of Gena Rowlands snooping in on the psychiatrist and his patient are so captivating. Rowlands' character is wonderfully fleshed out and her performance is magnificent. Watching her swallow emotional bombs left and right, all while keeping a calm, cold, almost robotic face is jarring to watch. Standing her completely unhinged performances from 'Opening Night' or 'A Women Under The Influence' alongside this one is something to marvel at.

(fr) wrote: From a story standpoint, Secret Beyond the Door is nothing special. Actually, its pretty damn dull. It's the story of an impetuous marriage where the woman (the beautiful Joan Bennett in this case) gets more than she bargained for. By today's standards it comes off as silly and even predictable. And on top of it all, there are so many elements that could've added to the story so well but instead leaving you needing more. But since Fritz Lang directed Secret Beyond the Door and his visual style makes up for the story's numerous shortcomings, I forgave a lot. So much in the last act was a work of art that by the time you get to the end of this movie with its convenient ending you're just left with torn feelings because you saw something magnificent but had to endure this mundane story to see it. I don't know. See it yourself, make your own call...

(it) wrote: Great coming of age story set in the part of Beverly Hills that is very much overlooked in film. This is not some Pretty Woman wannabe movie, this actually has a real and funny story line.
(ag) wrote: This movie is one of those great 80s teen dramas that defies sense, logic, and rationality. The legend of Sean Penn was clearly in the making here, as well as the idiosyncratic Tom Cruise. Also, I don't know who Timothy Hutton is but he did a stand up job as well. Performances were fantastic, but the premise is just so absurd that I cannot buy into it no matter how convincingly the parts were played.
(de) wrote: It's not a terrible film, but after a few viewings it becomes quite tiresome. Why they chose Natalie Portman for the lead is beyond me. I?m loathed to say it, but Keira Knightley would have been better suited - even though she is a terribly bland actress. Hugo Weaving's voice is becoming popular now (also lending his vocals to Megatron in 'Transformers'), and he does very well for a man only ever shown in a mask, although we could have done without the cockney-accent scene. The rest of the acting, and the rest of the film for that matter was very ho-hum. They could have played more on the ironic choice of John Hurt as the 'Big Brother' styled Prime Minister (a stark contrast to his role in '1984').
