Sword of Honour
Guy Crouchback joins the war effort during World War 2, an idealistic quest to join the forces of good in the fight against evil. But his efforts is not rewarded, he never has any chance to join any real fighting, circumstances always prevent it. Instead he finds himself in the middle of an army full of cowards, incompetents and a few outright evil men. They of course reap the fortunes of war, promotions and fame, but never Crouchback. His war is just an endless list of transfers and an hopeless but noble quest for righteousness.

(ca) wrote: This is one of those movies you just can't stand watching because of the horrible acting. It's unfortunate because there are a couple of famous people in it who know how to act - who happen to only be extras in this movie. And by golly, the computer effects are even worse and so unrealistic. Don't be fooled by the scary exorcist looking dvd cover - go get yourself an ice cream cone from McDonald's, you'll definitely get your money's worth over this sad movie.

(fr) wrote: For many Americans, a tasty meal is available for just a few meager dollars at a fast food chain down the block. We are led to believe that the food we eat is grown and made with care. That the meat and produce we buy is just as wholesome as it was when our grandparents were growing up. What most Americans don't realize is that this idea that the food industry is some unchanging entity comprised of small-scale farmers that love their animals is simply an elaborate hoax. The secrets hidden by the food industry are brought to light in the 2009 film, Food, Inc. directed by Robert Kenner. This documentary is filled with heart wrenching stories of Americans whom the food industry has harmed, and laced with alarming statistics about the treatment of the animals we eat and the people who work to bring us our food. Nobody expects that a simple hamburger could make them fatally ill, but that is what happened to Kevin, a 2-year-old boy, who passed away from an infection of E. Coli 0157:H7 in 2001. According to Food Inc, this kind of infection from meat consumption is not surprising due to the conditions in which cows live, often "up to their ankles in manure". The corn-based diet most cows are fed is unnatural to their digestive system and encourages the growth of E. Coli within their entrails. Kevin is only one of many victims of today's commercial food industry highlighted in this film. Also interviewed was the Gonzalez family who, due to their low income, are forced to eat almost exclusively fast food. Kenner points out the paradox that the most unhealthy, processed foods are the cheapest available. There is a scene where the Gonzalez family goes grocery shopping and has to pass up on things they want like broccoli and pears because they are too expensive. As if their story wasn't moving enough, it is later revealed that the father, Mr. Gonzalez, has diabetes. Eating healthy would most likely help him to get better, but after the cost of his medications, there is no money left for the family to buy nutritious food. The stories of Kevin and the Gonzalez family are just two out of several moving narratives in Food, Inc. After ninety minutes of hearing about people who have been harmed by commercial agriculture, the poor treatment of meat-packing workers, the abuse shown to animals in the industry, and people whose careers have been destroyed by giants such as Tyson and Monsanto, viewers are left wondering what they can do to improve conditions. Luckily, several are listed including buying local organic produce, cooking at home as opposed to eating fast food, and, if possible, being willing to shell out a couple extra bucks to pay for higher-quality food. This is a film that every environmental enthusiast, animal lover, or anyone who wants to know more about where their food comes from should see. It's time that the American public learns the truth about what they're consuming every day.

(fr) wrote: A shoot em up where you really don't care who lives or dies. The romantic subplot is contrived and lacks any true emotion. The lead actress is so cold and emotionless you have no empathy for what happens to her, although you know it isn't going to end pretty. Her nemesis looks like a Duran Duran band member, and probably can sing better than act. Ching Wan Lau is his usual reliable self, but his role is secondary and adds little to the story. The saving grace is the finale, which is a gritty gem of camerawork, although in similar vein as John Woo's "The Killer", everything seems to be in slow motion. The only difference is that "The Killer" is a far superior piece of work that Beyond Hypoetermia can only strive to be.
