Simon and Garfunkel: Songs of America

Simon and Garfunkel: Songs of America

“Songs of America” shows the two on stage, in the studio and on a concert tour across a turbulent country. Their ambitious Bridge Over Troubled Water album had yet to be released and the glorious title song was heard here by the general public for the very first time. The program showed news clips of labor leader/activist Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers, the Poor People’s Campaign’s march on Washington, the assassinations of Martin Luther King, JFK and Robert Kennedy and other events that were emblematic of the era. “Songs of America” was originally sponsored by the Bell Telephone Company, but the execs there got cold feet when they saw what they’d paid for—legend has it that they looked at the footage of JFK, RFK and MLK during the (powerful!) “Bridge Over Troubled Water” segment (approx 12 minutes in) and asked for more Republicans! (Not assassinated Republicans, just more know, for balance!) The special was eventually picked up by CBS.

Simon and Garfunkel: Songs of America torrent reviews

Venkat M (nl) wrote: another of those new age bollywood movies with a sensible screenplay and a gripping narrative. very good performances by anupam kher and manoj bajpai.

Matt B (mx) wrote: Eurotrip is intermittently funny, but my god it's dumb. The final scene is laugh-out-loud unintentionally funny. It's just trying so hard to be as raunchy as American Pie. Instead there's just a ton of gratuitous nudity of women.

Peter P (kr) wrote: Ok, I will start by saying I am a big fan of the original Highlander movie and I used to watch the TV show and through out the years I have watched these movies with a fond memory of the first one, but after watching "Highlander The Source" I can truly say I am done watching anything made with the name "Highlander" on it. The story sucked, the acting was terrible but worst of all, the fight scenes, which the highlander movies are known for, were absolutely the worst I have ever scene in any movie. Do yourself a favor and pass on this one, or just watch the original one.

Daniel S (us) wrote: I don't see what problem most people have with Vulgar, It's a very brilliant movie, but most people probably don't get that. Brian O' Halloran, better know as Dante Hicks from the cult classic Clerks plays a down-on-his-luck clown going by the name of Flappy. One day while trying to look for a new job he has an epiphany giving him the idea to be a clown for adult shows, replacing the woman at bachelor parties as a joke. Little does he know what's in store for Vulgar(his adult clown name)a.k.a what View Askew Fans might realize is the Mascot clown we all know and love who we first saw in the Clerks opening credits. Once at his first call, Vulgar is raped by a father and his two freakish sons. This is probably the reason most people don't like this film but you really have to look past this scene and see the greatness of the film, such as the realism of how it shows the outcome of being a victim, the acting, the dialogue, and characters, etc. This is also a film which shows two sides, dark, and comedic both of which give you chances to get to know the characters, and get involved in the story. Brian O' Halloran gives a terrific performance of both comedic and emotional stature, showing us the real dark side of the man behind the counter. Phenomenal script, and casting, something that went far too unappreciated. Definite Must See, at least if you can get through one minor rape scene and see the heart of the film.

Zach M (it) wrote: This movie made up for the terrible National Lampoon's Last Resort that Corey Feldman was in. Some decent laughs and some nudity. The story was very basic but it was fun non the less. Good end to the Meatballs series.

Shawn W (br) wrote: A special effects expert is conned into faking the killing of a mob stoolie who is to be put in the witness protection program by crooked agents from the justice department but turns the tables with the help of his f/x knowledge and ends up rich.

Samantha S (ru) wrote: saw it years ago. Don't recall a thing, even though Dean Jones was a hottie.

Brian B (it) wrote: An above average 60s era sci-fi flick. At first, Xavier is pleased with his discovery, and as with most scientists who delve to far into the mysteries of nature, he begins to vehemently regret his discovery.

Joe A (ag) wrote: Revisited this childhood favorite and it still is a lot of fun and now with added nostalgic charm. The FX may be cheezy by today's standards but they still work on a camp level and the fact that the director and actors approached this with just the right level of seriousness really made it work. This was my Jurrasic Park when I was a little kid and they played it on channel 9. Fun stuff.

Jamie C (au) wrote: Just as OTT as the first if not more, Again some silly great action scenes that are very entertaining that we don't care how stupid the plot gets.

Piers B (fr) wrote: The music ruined this movie.
