Scottsboro: An American Tragedy
A look at the infamous "Scottsboro Boys" case that occurred in Alabama in 1931, in which nine young black men were arrested, tried and quickly convicted in the rape of two white women, despite overwhelming evidence that showed their accusers had falsely accused them and the fact that one of the women later admitted that no rape had in fact occurred (although both had had sexual relations with their boyfriends on the day prior to the "rape"). The case was one of the first that shined a spotlight on what many called the "legal lynchings" that occurred in the South whenever blacks were accused of crimes, especially against whites and most especially against white women.

(it) wrote: The talented cast and Jennifer Westfeldt's sharp script help keep this movie out of sitcom territory.
(gb) wrote: I want to like this movie so much, but I just cant say it was a good movie. It tried so hard though, I could just feel the Hitchcockian vibe under the surface. Everything from the acting to the writing was just not quite right, but you could see how just a twist here and a bit more development there could have made this movie quite good.

(au) wrote: A common trope in film sequels is the addition of new characters - Lethal Weapon 2 is no exception. It's just as good as the first one in terms of the actual film but its atmosphere at times feels like a sequel, by which I mean, it definitely feels like the second time around for the franchise and there's more to go from here.Riggs and Murtaugh return in the second Lethal Weapon installment to stop South African diplomats from their money laundering schemes, as well as protect a klutzy former criminal named Leo Getz, who serves as the comedic aspect of the film.Lethal Weapon 2 in a lot of aspects is actually better than the first, but not all the way through. The first does a better job in introducing our characters - this one, like I said, feels like a sequel for Riggs and Murtaugh, like a TV series advertising what will happen in next week's episode - eventually putting characters into a dozen different scenarios will get old fast if the franchise keeps going more than it should. The sequel though has the notable addition of Joe Pesci as Leo Getz, who continues to be the comedic character in the rest of the films - it's just a taste here that in sequels Pesci will dominate screen time. He's funny as long as he isn't overused, which I can sense later on but it is well balanced here. A lot of badass action sequences, the sequel is more engaging and thrilling than the first. The ending fight scenes are compelling and never stop amusing, while the first film's fight scenes are great but don't deliver hardly as much. Lethal Weapon 2 is great, it is humorous, engaging, and doesn't follow the rule of making a bad sequel off of a good film, but I've heard the rest of the movies get continuously worse...
(es) wrote: Stay away from this movie! I've come across bad films before, but this one just leaves a bad taste in your mouth. It's the type of shit that even flies don't want to touch. Tara Reid is simply awful in it. Her totally forgettable performance is a good way to see that she's become totally desperate for movies. THIS FILM SUCKS!

(it) wrote: I loved this; the story of Tom Jones, a foundling adopted by the gentry whose playboy behaviour disappoints them, so he is cast adrift to win the heart of his true love. Tremendous fun.
(de) wrote: The first of the new series (still at 20th Century Fox) with Sidney Toler as the wise detective after Warner Oland's unexpected death. This time, murder takes place on Charlie's doorstep on a freighter docked in Pearl Harbor. But Charlie is distracted with his first grandchild's impending birth - so Number Two Son Jimmy tries to handle the case himself to comic effect. In fact, there is probably too much intended comedy in this outing - the mystery itself almost plays second fiddle to Eddie Collins' drunken clowning and a pet lion wandering around (not to mention Number Five Son getting into trouble too). There are the usual red herrings strewn about to implicate one or more of the sketchily drawn cast of character actors. Still, there is plenty of nostalgia value for dreams of late night TV watching with Dad.

(nl) wrote: Very odd relationship between Reno and Portman but it works. Also, can we please stop with the villain who listens to classical music trope? I'm over it...
(it) wrote: Overrated film. I guess that the academy didn't have a lot to choose from in this year. Dubbed as a comedy, it's not funny, in so far as it doesn't really have any jokes in it. You may yet laugh at Nicolas Cage's performance however.
