Separate But Equal
A dramatization of the American court case that destroyed the legal validity of racial segregation. One of the most pivotal moments in 20th century American history is bracingly dramatized in Separate but Equal. In telling the detailed story of the Supreme Court's 1953 decision to abolish racial segregation in schools, this superb 1991 TV movie covers a broad spectrum of issues, never taking its "eyes off the prize" while its first-rate cast conveys the importance of the Supreme Court's ultimately unanimous decision.

(ca) wrote: Many a film have made on the subject of suburbia and while LITTLE CHILDREN doesn't do much thematically to distinguish itself from what came before, its masterful direction and excellent performances put it a notch above the rest. The story is centered around Brad (Patrick Wilson) and Sarah (Kate Winslet), each married but unsatisfied with their lives. Brad is a stay-at-home dad who has yet to pass the bar and quite a pushover when it comes to his wife. Sarah is a stay-at-home mom/writer who doesn't feel like she belongs with the gossipy mothers she hangs out with in the public park (by virtue of being around them). Amidst this idyllic suburban setting (on the surface) there is a recently released sex offender who moves into the neighborhood to live with his mother, and an ex-cop who will stop at nothing to let everyone know about the "pervert" who just invaded their "sanctuary." Thematically, the film doesn't really break any new ground. You have your put-upon husband with his domineering wife,and a wife overcome with ennui at her banal existence along with her disinterested husband. Any character type you can think of is in this film. What sets it apart somewhat is the degree to which it lets the drama speak for itself and develop more subtly, barring a couple moments which telegraph meaning rather obviously. One such moment is in a book club where the audience is deliberately clued in on a comparison between Sarah and Emma Bovary, the novel which they are discussing. I also thought the voiceover narration was a bit overdone and vocalized character motivations/thoughts that didn't necessarily need to be said out loud. Even so, the narration gave the film this storybook quality which meshed quite well with the setting and tone. Of course, all the performances were top-notch, especially from Kate Winslet and Patrick Wilson. They have great onscreen chemistry and the characters they portrayed seemed very realistic. Jennifer Connelly and Gregg Edelman do fine as Brad and Sarah's spouses, respectively, but they weren't really given enough screen time (especially Gregg) to make much of an impression. Outside of this, I thought the subplot about the sex offender, Ronnie McGorvey (Jackie Earle Haley), was done rather tastefully. Quite a big deal is made in the film about judging others for some "higher cause" ("Think of the children...") while turning a blind eye to one's own faults and shortcomings. And based on the ending (which I won't spoil), it also seems to be making a point about the immaturity of trying to escape from one's life and responsibilities. Ultimately, LITTLE CHILDREN is rather pedestrian when it comes to the themes usually explored in these types of films and is a little too "on the nose" in a couple places, but its slick execution and awards-worthy performances make it worth a watch.

I can not remember any thing else than fast futuristic looking cars with deadly spikes, and loads of explosions. Therefore I have pasted in what R.T. wrote about Megaforce.

Ace Hunter is the leader of Megaforce, an elite group of American soldiers who travel the world to fight Evil. In this case, Evil is represented by a third rate dictator who they must blow to bits. I think it sounds like a lot of fun in an A.Team, Team America of the eighties kind of way. I would really like to see it again as an adult, but will probably be embarrassed by the whole production, bad acting, and start drinking only to fall asleep. I therefore can not rate the film, but have decided to rate it 50, for its cool cheesy Poster. Movie poster art is not what it used to be. Films were made really attractive looking, thanks to creative great looking poster art. The films of course usually did not deliver, and most viewers felt ripped off. Not me. I take precaution and usually know what is coming.
(jp) wrote: A grim look at love from Seijun Suzuki. Suzuki is often placed under such classical driectors as Mizoguchi, Naruse, Kurosawa and Ozu. It's no surprise either. It's not Suzuki's talent itself, but the material he works with. Story of a Prostitute is a grim, realistic and fare look at military hypocrisy. The story even rings true today, with supposedly honorable men performing cruel acts (see Taxi to the Darkside). The film is a mixture of subtle visuals but heavy handed acting and writing. The most engrossing scene was when the young soldier is treated kindly by the enemy. The film talks a lot about honor and love and even love as a form of possession. As a first Suzuki film for me, I'll certainly be checking out more.
(ag) wrote: Part 'Motor Psycho,' part 'Children of the Damned,' this worthwhile Hammer Films sci-fi effort hits a number of genres in one unique and compelling film. A biker gang, a hot female lead, creepy kids, government conspiracy, a mysterious hideaway - and more - it's all here, plus the repeated playing of a song you won't soon forget. 'Black leather, black leather!' Dig it, dammit!
(nl) wrote: Of the 10 Val Lewton films I've seen, this was definitely the worst. It feels more like an extended public service announcement than a feature film. The most interesting thing to me: I have always associated juvenile delinquency and teens gone bad with the 1950s, not the 40s. I would've rated this even lower but I liked seeing Ollie from the Cat People films and Jacqueline and coughing Mimi from the Seventh Victim. And it was fun to catch Lawrence Tierney (Reservoir Dogs) in a very early role.

(gb) wrote: Gets really boring. The last half of courtroom he-said-she-said is very tiring. Some interesting stuff, but the allegations of corruption are not proved, and argumentative at best. Read about Whitey online instead. Watched on Netflix at home, March 7, 2016.
(mx) wrote: A classic suspense noir about an out-of-control detective played by Dana Andrews, who accidentally kills a robbery suspect while trying to get some information out of him, then falls in love with the man's widow played by Gene Tierney. Great writing by Ben Hecht and direction by Otto Preminger. Andrews plays one of the classic examples of the noir hero plagued by self-doubt amidst a decadent society, whose path to redemption creates the central focus of the suspense, a theme well-supported by the visual style of this film.
