Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Admiral James T. Kirk is feeling old; the prospect of accompanying his old ship the Enterprise on a two week cadet cruise is not making him feel any younger. But the training cruise becomes a a life or death struggle when Khan escapes from years of exile and captures the power of creation itself.
It is the 23rd century. Admiral James T. Kirk is an instructor at Starfleet Academy and feeling old; the prospect of attending his ship, the USS Enterprise--now a training ship--on a two-week cadet cruise does not make him feel any younger. But the training cruise becomes a deadly serious mission when his nemesis Khan Noonien Singh--infamous conqueror from late 20th century Earth--appears after years of exile. Khan later revealed that the planet Ceti Alpha VI exploded, and shifted the orbit of the fifth planet as a Mars-like haven. He begins capturing Project Genesis, a top secret device holding the power of creation itself, and schemes the utter destruction of Kirk. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

(br) wrote: One of the better gang/drug dealing movies I've ever seen. Nas and dmx aren't the best actors in the world, but they play there parts perfectly. Enough action to keep you interested, and the characters are brilliant. Plus an amazing soundtrack. My only problem with the film, is I desired a better ending.

(gb) wrote: Siberia has never looked more beautiful or more dangerous than in this film. The basic premise of the film is that Russian expedition to Siberia is aided by a hunter who knows the area better than the Russians. So far so good. The film is pretty neatly divided into two halves: The first expedition they have with the hunter, and a second one years later.The first half of the film is stunning. The wilderness shots look insanely good and Kurosawa definitely knows how to capture a sunset. In fact, one of the most beautiful shots in the film has the hunter explaining to a Russian soldier how important both the sun and the moon are.However, it's the second half where the problems begin to start. The first expedition ends and it feels like this is where the movie should end, too. This is not the case. The second half is just less interesting than the first. It goes on for far too long and it takes its toll on a viewing audience. A subplot of how the hunter can't adjust to city life is fine and all, but it's just done in a rather dull way here.There is quite a bit to admire, mostly the scenery, but the fact that the second half is weaker than the first really does harm the film.
(au) wrote: Elia Kazan's legendary groundbreaking classic motion picture, which opens with a burst of violence as a man named Joey Doyle is thrown from the rooftop of his apartment building to his death by two goons working for the corrupt Union Boss John Friendly, played by Lee J. Cobb in magnificent performance. Marlon Brando in this film is often credited with revolutionizing male character portrayals with his rawness, masculine vulnerability and pure kinetic energy. No performance from his fruitful early career is better than this, his unforgettable Academy Award winning performance as Terry Malloy, an ex-boxer and New Jersey dock worker caught in the machinery of a corrupt longshoremen's union, torn between opposing forces of moral obligation to himself and an external sense of loyalty. Brando steals the movie with his stunning performance, but the supporting performances are all extraordinary, starting with Eva Marie Saint, in her amazing Academy Award winning big-screen debut. Her character of Edie is every bit as charged and broken as Terry, and her unwavering moral compass and clarity make her a wonderful foil to the ambivalent Terry. The three men who earned Academy Award nominations for Best Supporting Actor, all who delivered tremendous turns beginning with; Lee J. Cobb as the ruthless head of the longshoremen's union, who has evident ties to the Mob; Rod Steiger as Terry's brother, and Johnny Friendly's enforcer and right hand man, who pulled strings for Terry and now urges him to stay quiet on the union's corruption; and Karl Malden as a patient and determined priest, counseling those who know to come forward means certain death. Elia Kazan's Academy Award winning direction is masterful, Boris Kaufman's impressive Academy Award winning black-and-white cinematography is striking. Leonard Bernstein composed the film's Academy Award nominated score which is perfectly moody. Budd Schulberg's Academy Award winning screenplay is brilliant. The result is one that easily ranks among my favorite films, and one of the greatest American cinematic masterpieces of all-time. Winner of 8 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director: Elia Kazan, Best Actor: Marlon Brando, Best Supporting Actress: Eva Marie Saint, Best Screenplay: Budd Schulberg. Highly Recommended.
(ca) wrote: The ties to the chronologically simultaneously happening original film are actually pretty well done. The story is not as straight forward and the visuals not quite as unique and striking, but still pretty impressive. The action is top notch, though and while some dialogs are just as shallow in their "die for honor" pathos the result is overall really entertaining. The end comes a little suddenly, while I would have been okay with following those battles a little longer. Still, pretty decent.
