On July 14, 1789, a mob of angry Parisians stormed the Bastille and seized the King's military stores. A decade of idealism, war, murder, and carnage followed, bringing about the end of feudalism and the rise of equality and a new world order. The French Revolution is a definitive feature-length documentary that encapsulates this heady (and often headless) period in Western civilization. With dramatic reenactments, illustrations, and paintings from the era, plus revealing accounts from journals and expert commentary from historians, The French Revolution vividly unfurls in a maelstrom of violence, discontent, and fundamental change. King Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, Maximilien Robespierre, and Napoleon Bonaparte lead a cast of thousands in this essential program from THE HISTORY CHANNEL®. Narrated by Edward Herrmann (The Aviator, Gilmore Girls), The French Revolution explores the legacy that--now more than ever--stands as both a warning and a guidepost to a new millennium

It may have just been the copy I got from the library but the sound in general was lousy. Patrick Swayze was decent, but of course as in any movie he's in Michael Clarke Duncan was the best to me. Most of the action was good, only a few somewhat fake fight scenes (although the violence was horrendous in terms of fakeness). The CGI was either pretty good or pretty awful for the dragons. Overall more of a kind-of-action-mostly-cheesy-comedy movie. A few amusing scenes & one or two memorable one-liners. Probably would've been better if there would've been more fight scenes with Piper Perabo as she was kicking some serious butt in the fight scenes.

Ollie W (jp) wrote: Unfairly rejected by Almodovar himself as a overly-commercial work, Dark Habits is in fact, a superbly shot, beautiful, sad, sometimes hilarious little piece of Spanish Cinema. Reinforcing his central cast of reliable actresses, Almodovar's gentle tale of drug-abusing nuns and a complex love-affair is told with restraint and charm and thus ends up being an uncharacteristically low-key affair. Nonetheless, it is as visually and narratively rewarding as any of his subsequent masterpieces and showcases his incredible ability to utilize stunning Spanish music to enrich and embellish otherwise unspectacular scenes.

Noname (fr) wrote: A fantasy/adventure movie for the whole family. The underground city "Ember" starts to have problem when their generator begins to failure.. a decent flick based of a book. Bill Murray and Tim Robbins have some roles but quite weak performances. The kids did a better job actually. Anyway this is just an average movie in its genre and i can think of many other movies to look after before this. But overall watchable.
Simon T (nl) wrote: As with so much of David Lynch's output, this isn't an easy watch. It's long, incoherent and a test of the viewer's stamina. What narrative there is revolves around a Hollywood actress (producer-star Laura Dern, excellent) apparently trapped in a waking nightmare that features violence, prostitution, long dark corridors and a sitcom starring a family of rabbits. It's a film that is hallucinatory, self-indulgent and entirely held together by Laura Dern's performance and Lynch's brooding camerawork.
