Working-class Stella Martin marries high-end Stephen Dallas and soon they have a daughter named Laurel. But Stephen's incessant demands of Stella to become what she isn't leads to their eventual separation.

Determined to give her all the advantages, she takes Laurel on a trip to an expensive resort where Laurel makes friends with rich kids. After an embarrassing incident, Stella realizes that her daughter would go farther in life without Stella as her mother. Her subsequent sacrifice is shattering.

(mx) wrote: Hey, at least Freddy's Power Glove worked better than its real-life counterpart. That's probably the highlight of Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, perhaps the most forgettable series entry, a film that pushes the comic mischief to the extreme and fails to end the series with anything even remotely considered "satisfying." Fortunately, history proved that neither fans nor Hollywood were ready to part ways with Mr. Krueger; his future films are better than this, both series creator Wes Craven's own New Nightmare and Runny Yu's vs. film. Still, Freddy's Dead makes for a generally entertaining movie, even if it does operate fairly far from series norms.

(mx) wrote: I admire the film's production values and lavish costumes and the film is fairly engrossing throughout, but it's bogged down by this horrible, melodramatic love story. The film would have been much better had it focused on this girl's life as a geisha, rather than make it a romance. Unfortunately, they went with the latter and the film is just average instead of fantastic.
(de) wrote: This movie has, literally, no point. From a textual analysis point of view this piece of text is absolutely meaningless (sure, we can argue that it is the absence of meaning which gives it the meaning of absolute pointlessness of life, however the movie is so all over the place that this can hardly be the presumed meaning of it). The movie tries to make a statement of predisposed place in the world, which, as we all know, is something taken from the Indish book of the cast system. This trope of a theme, in the end, has no affect on the outcome of the movie, only the proceedings of it. However, the movie also tries to make a statement about the three classes of people - upper class, middle class and lower class, or in this case, the "Freeloaders". However, in life there is a point to the struggle between the classes - power, equality of opportunity and even the struggle for equality of outcome (pardon the socialist in me). In life, the struggle between classes is relevant and meaningful for the well-being of the classes, but in the movie it is not. The movie's plot is mostly about three different groups of people (although we only get to hear about two) and, in this case, there is no externally motivated struggle between the groups. Not really. The majority of the people that are in the current tail-end of the train have grown up on the train and know nothing about the cannibalism of their predecessors. The leftover people remember their grievances, yes, but there is nothing externally motivating them to destroy or overthrown the upper class(lets call it like it is) . Why? Because they are the last people on Earth (don't let the polar bear at the end mislead you), the earth around them is cold, hostile and no longer inhabitable. There is no struggle for the lower class people to escape - there is nothing to escape to. They live in blissful ignorance of eating protein bars made out of cockroaches, having shelter and have, literally, no job or dirty work to do for the upper class. The lower class, as opposed to the real world, has no obligations or burdens to carry for the upper class so the struggle between the groups is rather...forced, for the movie's plot, that is. As the middle aged British woman who doesn't really matter says the lower class were freeloaders when they got on the train and they still are. So why are they there? It makes NO sense for them to be on the train with the rest of the passengers. They contribute nothing to the society, they mean little to nothing to the rest of the community - they are tortured, starved, forced to cannibalism and have their family members be taken away from them whenever the upper class pleases. In the end, they have no relevance to their name to even exist on the train - I have no idea, and nobody explained this to me or other viewers, why they even were there in the first place. They survived therefore they deserve a place on the train? Why?! Nobody cares about them anyway like I have pointed out before. So apart from the fact that the movie's main plot-line is filled with irrational decisions of the screen writer, director and anybody that contributed to creating this story it also has poor choice of tempo, horrible transitions between cuts, close ups and very bad taste in lighting. In addition, even though it is a sci-fi movie (although it seems more like a distopian movie to me) it lacks the sci-fi or fantastic motives, but rather bounces off realism and pounces to it's genre description for defense. Anti-global warming experiment gone wrong theme is not brought up in any way except for the beginning of the movie, and, to be honest, it does not play any significant role to the plot. The producers might as well have had just stated that the movie will be placed in an alternate distopian future where the Earth is covered with snow and that would have been just as relevant as the anti-global warming experiment theme. One more thing, which got me all riled up for no reason really - is the only sci-fi motive the fact that a guy's hand freezes solid in 7 minutes, has a ring of metal when hit with a crowbar or whatever the heck it was and then gets smashed into bits and the hand is somehow perfectly amputated, freaking stitches, healed tissue and all?! It was a frozen arm, it should have made the guy bleed out not make him walk around like a lunatic with one and a third of an arm. I mean, do we call any movie SCI-FI when it does not understand medicine 101?! Hard times we live in, people. Hard times.

In this story an asteroid hits the earth and turns everything into desert. Water becomes very valuable resource and it's controlled by an evil mega-corporation led by a madman played by Malcolm McDowall. Lori Petty and a very young and dark haired Naomi Watts plays the 2 characters who oppose him.
