Barnaby Fulton is a research chemist working on a fountain of youth pill for a chemical company. One of the labs chimps, Esther, gets loose in the laboratory and, having watched Dr Fulton do something similar, mixes a beaker of chemicals, but then pours the mix into the water cooler. Later, when trying one of his own samples sample, washed down with water from the cooler, Fulton begins to act just like a 20-year-old and believes his potion is working. Soon his wife and boss are also behaving like children.

No man should procreate (make a baby) without seeing this movie. Your role in a child's life is vital. Don't take it lightly. This movie nails it.
(kr) wrote: Although I enjoyed parts of it, The Flowers of War is bad propaganda movie. Parts of it are good and somewhat interesting. However, most of it is silly and somewhat disturbing, not for the atrocities it depicts, but for the obvious anti-Japanese propaganda. As a propaganda movie, it's awful. It's only true purpose is to incite hatred in China against Japan and perhaps inspire sympathy elsewhere for contemporary Chinese aggression. If it were more honest in its depictions, I could have been much more sympathetic to the Chinese, a people whom I adore. Surely, they suffered greatly at the hands of the Japanese. However, I felt bad for the Japanese, because they were totally depicted as mindless animals with demonic possession and a total hatred for all Chinese. And that's a total lie, both then and now. The Japanese are no more or less human than any others. I wish Christian Bale had not been in it. Otherwise, I wouldn't have watched it. On a side note: I spent several years in China. Their TV offers a nightly review of Japanese atrocities. It's endless. The effect is the opposite that's intended. Chinese are both fearful and fascinated with the Japanese. Japan is one of the countries most often visited by Chinese. When they get there, they discover that the Japanese are an extraordinarily civilized people. So how did Nanjing occur? There were a lot of factors at work. And just like the My Lai massacre in Vietnam, most soldiers did not participate nor behave horribly. Most were likely as shocked as the rest of us. But a few rampaging soldiers can do a lot of damage. And why did the few behave as they did? That's a question for psychiatrists and historians. Films like The Flowers of War will do nothing to help relations with Japan. Nothing. It's a harmful film that will contribute to more pain in that part of the world. And when the next war with Japan begins, if such should happen, the Chinese will be scared to death of the Japanese. Their TV shows and movies have done this. Final note: I have no desire to debate the veracity of the events depicted in The Flowers of War. I will leave that for historians. I intended only to deprecate a propaganda film that has failed part of its purpose, which is to inspire sympathy for China. However, its true purpose is to prepare the Chinese for a potential conflict with Japan, which threatens to be a disaster of unthinkable magnitude. Regardless of its purpose, this film serves no useful purpose in an increasingly dangerous part of the world. Also, it's just a poorly done movie in which Bale appears ready to bail.

(br) wrote: After 101 episodes of the tv series, Naruto gets its first movie and a fun one at that. In this film, Naruto and his friends get a new mission to protect and escort a movie actress back to her homeland. The animation was very detailed and beautiful with a better budget than than the tv series. The action had some good fight scenes and it was very entertaining. Also the voice acting was very good from the japanese voice actors who reprise their roles from the tv show while the characters they portray are their usual selfs. The film is more an extended stand alone episode of the tv series if anything and it doesnt develop the main characters except for one but its still fun to watch. Recommended for hardcore fans of Naruto. 3 1/2 of 5 stars.

(de) wrote: This film does some things very well. It does a good job of establishing what the conflict between the Hutus and Tutsis was about, including it's pointless arbitrariness and it's roots in colonialism, and does so with a minimum of expository dialogue. It also gives a very clear idea of the scale and sheer terror of the events in Rwanda, without wallowing in bloodshed. It also depicts an interestingly different hero. A man who saved lives really by playing the enemy's game and being willing to bargain and even compromise his dignity to save lives. It's not something you see very often on film. What it doesn't do very well is break out of the overly earnest "issue film" mood that drags it down for large segments.
