(kr) wrote: You have yourself a pretty basic, clich (C) filled movie. What Olympus Has Fallen achieved just 3 months prior to the release of WHD was just far more gritty, intense and overall more believable.
(de) wrote: Poorly written and equally acted, this cop drama is full of stereotypes and no surprises other than how actors like Robert DeNiro and Forest Whitaker got involved in the first place.

"La source des femmes" is a beautiful portrait of Moroccan women fighting for their equal rights in a strongly patriarchal society of a village in Morocco. An emancipatory journey, the film that was premired in Cannes (2011) makes a case for interpreting Islam and the Koran in the light of societal progress, questioning tradition and religious teachings, and even saying NO to salafism (and presumably fundamentalism for that matter), which corrupts the Muslim societies all over the world. Even if you haven't been in Morocco, this film will give you an honest, non-judgmental glimpse into the life of rural-traditional Muslims in North Africa. The actors did a justice to the plot and the positive message they delivered is worth a moment of reflection or, hopefully, constructive discussion.

It's a shame that we don't see her more often in the movies.The biggest problem with this movie is that although it only 2 hours long ,but it feels about 4.You just keep thinking that maybe it;s coming to an end, but it's not. There are some problems with this movie, not relating to the direction but it lacks something which I can't put my finger on. Maybe it's the writing...I don't know.Still it's worth a watch.

(es) wrote: An INTERESTING film on the power and corruption of modern-day media. It's unfortunate that DUSTIN HOFFMAN didn't have an equally strong actor to play beside. Instead enter JOHN TRAVOLTA who presents to us a cheesy and completely unrealistic character creating a cartoon out of what should've been a profound drama. SKIP IT!

Yaphet Kotto, Godfrey Cambridge, Eartha Kitt, Jim Backus, Scatman Crothers, Carl Weathers, and your bartender Ted Lange, also appear in the film.

Until recently, I hadn't seen this film since maybe around the time it came out. I can't believe I hadn't reviewed it on here yet. Here's the thing, I'm not against making a movie based on this story, because it is a good story, I just don't think it should have been a family friendly Disney film. It's a about two Green Berets and a few other GIs who have to deliver an elephant to a remote village to replace their old one who was killed due to a cultural misunderstanding on the parts of one of the GBs. The title of the film should have cut out the Drop, as it gives away the climax, thus stripping away what could have been a lot of tension, suspense, and surprise. Also, given the circumstances, the film has to water down a lot of its depiction of the war, glosses over (for the most part) a lot of subtext, and plays it safe, adding in lots of schmaltz and predictability. I will say that it is moderately entertaining, but terrible history. Had this been any other studio, and not had to cater to the family crowd, it more than likely, but not necessarily, could have been a far stronger film. Maybe that's just the more mature me being grumpy because I've got a better understanding of the world than I did when I first saw this. Like I said though, as is, it is moderately entertaining, and it does have a tad bit of profanity and a few dark moments, but ultimately it plays it safe. I think the best thing it has going for it are the rockin' period tunes and the cast. I mean hell, it's got Danny Glover, Ray Liotta, Denis Leary, the guy who played Parker Lewis, and Doug E. Doug! That's awesome. These guys deserved a better and stronger film, but I think they had at least a bit of fun here, even if they all did probably just do it for the money.The movie's not great, but it's not too terrible either. It's mostly just sanitized and run of the mill. I wasn't bored watching it though, and some of it was funny, but I think if this would have been an art film and really focused on some of the subtext and cultural issues more it could've really been something.
