Starbuck is a 2011 Canadian comedy film directed by Ken Scott and written by Martin Petit and Ken Scott. The main character David Wozniak is a perpetual adolescent who discovers that, as a sperm donor, he has fathered 533 children. David, a deliveryman for a butcher shop, is being pursued by thugs because he owes them money. Next, he is advised that more than 100 of his offspring are trying to force the fertility clinic to reveal the true identity of "Starbuck", the pseudonym he used when donating sperm. In addition, his girlfriend Valérie is pregnant with his child but doesn't feel that he is mature enough to be a father. Starbuck was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 14 and 15, 2011. The film's title refers to a Canadian Holstein bull who produced hundreds of thousands of progeny by artificial insemination in the 1980s and 1990s.
As his lover announces her pregnancy, a fortysomething slacker receives other life-changing news: 142 people, all of them the result of artificial insemination, have filed a class action lawsuit against him, their biological father. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Steve G (it) wrote: Who's likable in this movie? Killer soundtrack & '80s visuals. Too bad about the moral drawbacks. I don't know that there's one redeemable character.Mall guys: Why would you try to kill the only girls left on earth?! ...both of whom are decently hot.It's a shame such good music, scenery, & ideas were wasted on a pretty below-average story.
Anders A (fr) wrote: Dracula comes to life, through some naive englishmen bewildered in the Carpathian. Christopher Lee with a magic performance, with true evil in his eyes. The story is too loose in between the horror, which makes it less frightening than its suppose to be. Maybe a little too aristocratic, too fit in the Dracula empire.

Nowadays "a dog's world"=shits and giggles.
Noel V (jp) wrote: Easily the most startling and stylish adaptation of Jane Eyre ever made, Jacques Tourneur's 'I Walked with a Zombie' answers the simple question: what if Rochester had never left the Caribbean--if Jane instead were to travel there instead? In less than seventy minutes Tourneur's balletic camera describes a world of dreamlike languor and voodoo magic, a world where not just Rochester's wife but all the main characters are, in fact, only half alive, caught between passion's drive and society's demands. The film itself is equally divided in nature, alternating between long, beautifully lit and photographed sequences almost entirely without dialogue (Betsy's first encounter with Jessica, the trek to the Home Front) and monologues from people describing their struggle with passion's consequences with all the fervor of recovering addicts (Tom Conway, Edith Barrett). The ending has been described as abrupt; I can only call it inevitable, lyrical, breathlessly tragic. A great film.

Timothy H (us) wrote: How did I end up watching this? But there again, how did somebody with Pierce Brosnan's pedigree end up appearing in it? My excuse is that ??Pete?? from my girlfriends work purchased it; maybe Pierce Brosnan needed a new swimming pool? Back to the review. Mister Johnson is a local that thinks he is English and dresses and speaks impeccably. To live the lifestyle, he needs to ??duck and dive?? to keep up. The films one redeeming feature is the great views of Africa; the landscape, the people and the animals.
