Oceana, West Virginia—known as “Oxyana” after its residents’ epidemic abuse of OxyContin—is a tragically real example of the insidious spread of drug dependency throughout the country. Set against an abandoned coal mining landscape to the melodies of Deer Tick’s haunting score, this unflinchingly intimate documentary probes the lives of Oceana’s afflicted and exposes the day-to-day experience of a town living in the harsh grip of addiction.

Need I say more?The Awesome: "Racing In The Street" - one of my favourites; "No Surrender"; great HD photography (I only have the DVD - would be amazin' in Blu); "Good Lovin'"The Bad: A bizarre Seeger Sessions style folky cheery reworking of the really quite sombre "Johnny 99" from the not-at-all happy "Nebraska" album, complete with crowd participation "wooh wooh" train horn sounds!The Bizarre: Bruce's wig/weave turns increasingly ginger as the gig wears on.The Sad: That these guys, while still rocking harder than anyone else on the planet, are getting on a bit. One's already died (the great Danny Federici), The Big Man Clarence Clemons is on a new pair of hips, Little Stevie increasingly resembles a wrinkly Teletubbie and the rest are all creaking. Catch them while you can - you'll miss them when they're gone.The Bottom Line: Buy this now.

(de) wrote: This movie can't decide what it wants to be...campy or dramatic...and fails at both. The actors recite their lines like children in a school play and there is too much unneeded exposition. The inevitable deaths are pure camp to the extent one even reminded me of OJ getting damaged in Naked Gun. I'll admit, I laughed but I'm not sure I was supposed to.The music felt like all music from 50s horror and alien invasion movies distilled into a score for this movie. Very campy but delightfully so. I wish it had been applied to a more deserving movie.

I have said that to a few movies and held that they were not beatable but Pocket Ninjas has surpased them and left them in the dust. The only thing that didn't make me take this netflix disc out of the DVD player and burning it and paying a fee was the fact that the choreography of the fights was acceptable (not good...acceptable). Wow this movie just was BAAAADDDD.
(au) wrote: Interesting story of eloping couple that take a wrong turn to hell. Purely fictional and sci-fi orientated, the couple literally take a highway to hell, hence the title. But hell is only hot, not that bad. The sixties comedy team of Stiller and Myra make a cameo appeatance in Hell's diner during the first half of the film. [Those that remember the team will recognize Stiller as the policeman and Myra as the waitress behind the counter as he asks for a cup of coffee.] This film is the product of fanciful imagination. Filmed in the desert southwest U.S., lots of desolation and sand. This film is primarily a mind bender, much in the same vein as the old Twilight Zone television dramas. This movie has all the usual scare tactics that kids are used to today. Its no wonder why I read that film goers are not scared by anything. Thats because everything they see on film is visual. The mind is what needs scaring, what is NOT seen. Good for teens and easily entertained adults. Fans of Miami Vice, the 80's television crime series, will recognize the soundtrack performed by Tangerine Dream, the best part of the film.

(jp) wrote: Hitchcock had already bailed to America, so this very Hitchcockian train thriller, written by the men who wrote "The Lady Vanishes", went to Carol Reed instead, and maybe that's a good thing, for while Hitch was winning Best Picture for "Rebecca", Reed was dishing out an early war comedy-thriller that's every bit as entertaining as it's predecessor, and starring many of the same actors. It's 1939, on the eve of Britain and France declaring war on Germany, and a Czechoslovakian scientist (and his precious daughter, Margaret Lockwood, also of 'Lady') is wanted by the Reich for defense experiments; with virtually everything to lose, an undercover agent (Rex Harrison, brilliant in one of his first leading roles) takes it upon himself to extradite the pair from the Gestapo, and the likes of Paul Henreid (soon himself to bail for Hollywood, and stardom). What follows is an often darkly comic excursion into undercover cat-and-mouse territory, as Harrison convinces the Nazi brass of his credentials, but Henreid becomes suspicious, and a pair of British travelers (Naunton Wayne, Basil Radford, reprising roles from the earlier Hitchcock) get involved in the games, leading to a chase through the Alps, on train and mountain car. Made at a time when patriotism and anti-Nazi sentiment was rife for a light-hearted exploration, before the bombing raids and true brutality of the SS was made common knowledge, this is an exciting and fun entertainment; troubling times were to come.

(ca) wrote: Ok, was going to try and be positive but as the movie is so relentlessly cynical and negative I thought it deserved a dosage of its own bitter medicine. More mark of Cain UK TV leftie media cynicism than guts and glory US movie Lone Survivor stylee. But despite some good acting the soldiers and their world are unconvincing. Maybe the movies have missed it but you can still get the pity of war even from telling tales of brave soldiers who do well and believe in a cause. Instead we have a focus on a made up tale of insubordination and betrayal. A Bridge too far might have been a better tone. If allot of the books about Afghanistan have been too gung ho then try Call Sign Hades by Irish Officer Lt Bury. If you want real action and futility try the BBC soldiers war headcam doc Our War or the one about US marines in Helmand ( not the overrated restrepo.) There are loads of good books and movies out there about war both gung ho and anti war. I would list some decent books and war movies to watch instead but I think I have made my point that this isn't one of them....
(br) wrote: I recently rewatched this movie, haven't seen it since I was 11, yes I saw this movie at 11, it was a father/son movie night and dad wanted to watch this on HBO. From what I remembered, the 11 yr old me thought it was funny, mainly because Eric Roberts was such a goofy/silly character. 11 yrs later I watched it on Netflix, I can easily say that "The Pope of Greenwich Village" is a truely colorful, funny, and very authentic slice of the New York City street life. One of the most underrated, overlooked films of the 1980s. Mickey Rourke gives a fantastic performance as Charlie, a wise-guy who just wants to make it big in life. Eric Roberts as the hilarious and totally out there third cousin of Charlie. The two decide to partake in a job, stealing from a gangster known as "Bed Bug Eddie", played by the incredible Burt Young. Things don't go so well, when an undercover cop discovers the raid and is accidently killed in the manner of catching Paulie & Charlie.The movie has great composits of the NYC life, you really get a first hand look of the streets, the people, and the lifestyle itself. It's what makes this movie feel so authentic. Great dialogue, and memorable funny banter scenes between Paulie & Charlie make this a view for all to see.
