Along the way, the students learn not only how to build a robot but something far more important: how to forge bonds that will last a lifetime.
The team had only $800 and used car parts, no experience but twin first place over M.I.T in a 2004 national robotics competition. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Very technical in nature, the plot details do require attention to grasp, and maybe even multiple viewings to get the most out of it; however, throwing all the technological aspects aside, this film still makes for a great watch.There isn't much to argue when it comes to Japanese animation and there is no exception here. The character designs and the settings come together for some great eye candy. The action follows in the visual's footsteps.The voice work is up to par with the visuals. Maaya Sakamoto's portrayal of Motoko Kusanagi hits the spot. The same can be said for the rest of the cast as well.Ghost in the Shell Arise: Border 4 - Ghost Stands Alone takes effort to comprehend, but that doesn't deter a viewing.
(mx) wrote: Wonderful lead actor and an inventive outline of a story. But there is zero coherence as to why this man is doing what he is doing or how it even came about. Seems to be bizarre for the sake of not making sense.
(es) wrote: Another situation where somebody powerful (ie the Government) has a major problem and only Steven Seagal, government agent of some underground government agency can save the day. Drawn out, boring and light on the action side of things. Right down there with Half Past Dead in terms of career lows. Seriously, a stolen invisible plane? An extra half star for the lesbo scene, though, even if it didn't go far enough.
(de) wrote: Would you take a pill to be normal? Most people do in American society. Everyday Americans take pills to get rid of that nasty headache, heartburn, or love handles, but homosexuality? This idea may be ridiculous to some, but extremely valid to others. Would you do it? Could you do it? Why? Why not? Would you tell your heterosexual partner that you only love them because of your medicine? Hard Pill is a question at its core: ??If you could take a pill to make you straight, would you??? The main problem is that it tries harder to ask the question than apply the concept to its story.Tim is the not-so-stereotypical gay male, whom cannot find companionship with other men, seemingly due to bitterness. Of course he must have an extremely stereotypical gay friend that has anonymous sex, a female friend that is in love with him, and a straight friend that he fools around with. By the time the viewer is interested in the plot, the movie cuts to basically a testimonial break where random people state their opinions on such a pill. This is distracting from the story. If a movie seeks to ask a question of its audience it should ask it indirectly through the language of the plot, not just ask it. Aside from the distracting testimonials, Hard Pill does deliver with a talented unknown cast, but sometimes awkward camera movement gets in the way. If there was any advice to give before watching this movie it would be to not read the back cover; it tells you the beginning, middle and end. What was said be a thought provoking, original film seems all too similar to the premise of the 2002 movie, Fixing Frank.

(jp) wrote: One of my all time favorite martial arts sword flicks. The story is credible and the pace of the movie is very good. Well there are not a lot of different sets used the ones int he flick are realistic and used to effect. The actors and stunts are incredible and realistic for being choreographed. If you love old school martial arts this ones for you. I put it right up their with "Invincible Pole Fighter" and "The 36th Chamber of Shaolin." Not to give anything away but the Sleeping Wizard fight is classic. Grab some popcorn and enjoy a great martial arts flick.

(mx) wrote: It's a nice trip down memory lane to see how young the cast were when they made it, and that's about the best thing Cruel Intentions has going for it at this point. The relationships are so weirdly written that very little of it makes sense, even in its juvenilely adult ways, not to mention how laughably corny the ending comes off. I can't recall if this movie ever was regarded as all that great to begin with, but it certainly isn't now.
