(es) wrote: Petals on the wind doesn't have the same provoking suspense or such a good script like its precedent, but it still has a lot of good thrills and we count with superbly performances by all the cast, furthermore this theme was reinvented in an unexpected and clever way making this a good sequel for the first classic psychological thriller movie.
(au) wrote: Blue Ruin is an quasi-revenge flick directed by Jeremy Saulnier which becomes an utterly engrossing character piece about a man who is tormented not only by his past, but events that occur during the run time of the film. Macon Blair who plays the lead role Dwight is guaranteed to take you on emotional roller coaster. His portrayal of the character Dwight Evans is utterly brilliant as he conveys the emotions of heartbreak, depression, and sadness expertly, and shows audiences that both passion and malice can shift the psyche of the most unlikely of people and turn them into a cold blooded killer.

(mx) wrote: State of Grace: Honestly I wasn't all that excited when my dad said he recorded a movie that has Sean Penn and Gary Oldman in it, but when i saw that it was a mob movie, my attention rose. State of Play is a late 80's irish mob tale with similarities to the 2006 best picture The Departed, but at first we don't realize it. Sean Penn just rolls in Hell's Kitchen after a ten year absence from place unknown. His friends Gary Oldman and a skinny and very young and serious John C. Reilly, yes Step Brothers and Talladega Nights John C. Reilly, have close connections to the local Irish mob ran by another big name Ed Harris. now the story does have alot of layers and alot of things do happen so i won't get into it to much, just that Sean Penn isn't exectly who he says he is, but actually acop who must infiltrate and rat on his old friends. it is a very good movie and a pleasent surprise.
(kr) wrote: While reviews of this movie have been consistently bad, it seems to me that this horror-science-fiction-comedy flick is standard 80's stuff : limited special effects, fair-to-decent acting (Kirsty Swanson is quite good), dubious premises, impossible twists.

(mx) wrote: None of Bergman's regular actors are here and the cast is not nearly as good as I'm used to in his work. The movie is fair, but doesn't seem to add much to the Bergman canon. The interplay between husband and wife is very intriguing but the rest of it is dull.
(nl) wrote: Harrowing, cold-hearted and engrossing are just a few words to describe the 1979 film Scum, directed by Alan Clarke and written by Roy Minton. It shows the apparent brutality within a 1970's British borstal, including hard watching scenes of violence, racism, suicide and most notoriously rape. The film follows the experiences of Ray Winstone's character, "4737, Carlin" and other inmates; as they struggle for justice among themselves and from the crooked wardens. The film starts with three young men in a police vehicle: Angel, Davis, and Carlin, being driven to a borstal. Scum does not reveal the convictions of these three men, but emphasises more upon the borstal environment. In 1902, borstals were introduced for young male offenders to protect them from the influence of older offenders. They were designed to be religious and educational, with a focus upon military routine, discipline and authority. As shown throughout the film, there was a strong belief on the use of corporal punishment as an effective way to suppress delinquent behaviour. Scum portrayed life within borstals as a continual conflict between the inmates and wardens ("screws") through scenes of violence, racism, suicide and rape. Inmates would fight among each other in order to gain hierarchy power, with the top status as "The Daddy". Wardens would take full advantage of their authority, often beating inmates and turning a blind eye to incidents involving "The Daddy", as he was deemed to have leadership qualities. Scum leads viewers to see the matron as a mother figure for inmates, during group discussion sessions, but similar to the wardens; she does not show any compassion or sympathy towards them. Inmates were unable to speak up about the continual abuse, for being known as a "grass" doesn't bode well within this environment. The harsh reality was that the film Scum actually showed incidents that frequently occurred within borstals; yet highlights the ineffective borstal system. In 1982, shortly after Scum was released, borstals were abolished and instead Young Offender Institutions were introduced. Scum showed the effects of continual corporal punishment on inmates. Most notably when the inmates hear of the suicide of Davis following a rape attack; Carlin, now known as "The Daddy", prompts a riot and in the final scenes is seen bloody and unconscious after a thorough beating from the wardens. If these are similar to reality of borstals, then it would show corporal punishment as effective only for short term means; but may increase delinquent behaviour and subsequently lead to re-offending. This therefore leads to the widespread view of whether the current justice system is too "soft" on criminals. Many of the public have a consensus agreement that harsher and corporal punishment should be brought back; this view has especially been raised due to the recent London riots. Current Youth Offender Institutions have a different take on criminal punishment and is based on restorative justice principles. It focuses more upon offenders taking responsibility for their wrong doings through various means; for example education to ensure offenders fully understand the consequences of crime. Young offenders are examined individually, rather than in groups as Scum portrayed with the matron. This has shown to be much more effective upon re-offending rates, as it accommodates more to the individual needs. From Scum, it is clear to see how the youth offending system has changed. CCTV cameras are now implemented in modern day institutions, so inmates can not abuse each other and vice versa with the wardens. The current approach has been improved on and seen to be better in reducing re-offending rates. It hasn't completely ruled out crime and reoffending; which is a possible reason as to why the public see this approach as too "soft" for criminals. So, may be a balance between restorative justice principles and corporal punishment will be more beneficial. Scum also highlights violence, sexual and racial abuse; violence and sexual abuse has been reduced, but sadly, racism is still a big part in today's society. Scum brings to light the corruptive justice system in the 70's. The film depicts the harsh reality of borstals from the director's perception; it highlights the extreme rivalry within the inmate hierarchy and wardens taking full advantage of their position. From watching this film we learn that juveniles within a borstal do not take responsibility for their actions and due to the disturbing environment, inmates are led to commit more crimes; as seen through Carlin using violence as a tool for self-protection. Therefore, bringing back the borstals would bring no benefit for the justice system, in fact may make it worse and lead to higher re-offending rates. Scum is still seen as very controversial and valuable, however, the graphics are deemed as out-dated so a remake of the film may be more enticing for viewers.

The film amplifies the little things that annoy spouses about one another in such a hilarious way, then the Process & Irony of Divorce , that it really gives Chuckle to how silly it all is & that it'd be Cheaper to Keep Her.One of my favorite Scenes in Cinema is in this: Barbara(Debbie) goes under hypnosis in a Cabaret Act on Stage with the New Boyfriend(Van Johnson) & Soon to be Ex(Van Dyke) at the stroke of midnight, watching as she gets Camp, Vamp, & quite Burlesque Tramp, it's Hysterical. Only Debbie Reynolds could be Sexy & Funny at the same time & go above & beyond what the Script intended.Magic, Mayhem, Marriage, American Style.
