Before the Premier League and multi-million pound salaries, in England 'football' was a dirty word. The game was in disgrace, the fans, hooligans, the nation, it seemed, were all played out. Then there was Italia '90 - The World Cup - a shot at redemption. But this was no ordinary World Cup and no ordinary time. The manager, Sir Bobby Robson, was under intense media scrutiny, and his team described as 'donkeys'. Yet over six short weeks, through their heroic exploits they united a nation, coming within a heart beat of reaching the World Cup Final. Narrated by Gary Oldman, featuring match action - from Platt's last-gasp winner against Belgium to the silky skills of Gazza and the cool finishing of Linekar - and previously unseen footage, this is the definitive story of England's greatest footballing adventure on foreign soil....so far.

A police officer named Cornjob is there to provide much needed comedic relief to the unrelenting suspense.

Cody C (gb) wrote: A beautiful film that's impossible not to love. Seriously, if you don't enjoy this, you don't like movies. Bob is such a great character, and the story is so clever. The third act is very gripping and it's impossible to predict what's going to happen. Also features a woman taking an ACTUAL slap like an absolute champ. I've never seen someone get clocked so hard in a film before. No trickery, no nothing. Shit is real. Replayed that part a bunch of times and in slow-mo a few. The actress deserves a fucking lifetime achievement award for taking that smack for the sake of art.

Peter Graves stars as a scientist who sends a signal to Mars and gets an actual call back from real Martians. The Martians give Graves messages that send the world into a panic, apparently because we Earthlings are jealous of the the Martians' technology. World markets collapse, crime spikes, Labor Unions freakout (not surprising), etc. Graves also receives a proxy message from Mars, originally delivered by God. This message changes the world into a peaceful, religious place practically overnight. But hold on, the Russians have been eavesdropping so trouble is bound to ensue. This movie contains absolutely no visuals of Martians, space battles or anything else that amounts to anything more than a left over stage prop. But somehow it almost works. Many will think that this is a thinly veiled commantary on McCarthyism. Others will sour on its overtly religious theme, and that's okay. I honestly can't decide what I think of it.

Allan C (de) wrote: An interesting cast is waster in this plodding, low-budget remake of the classic John Ford film. The original film was about a stagecoach full of disparate characters traveling though dangerous Apache territory. This remake is essentially the same story, but casts country music stars in the lead roles; Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, and Waylon Jennings (who every time he spoke, I kept waiting for a freeze frame and for him to say something about them Duke Boys). There are a few old Hollywood actors in the film like Anthony Newley, Anthony Franciosa, and some of the moment actors like John Schneider, Merritt Butrick and Mary Crosby. Directed by the usually reliable Ted Post, this film's dull pace really kills it. Not worth watching unless your a fan of the lead actors. Cash was the main reason I wanted to watch the film, and he's okay in it, but I did forget how good an actor Nelson can be and actually made me want to rematch his performance in Michael Mann's "Thief."
