In order to utilize their particular paralysis, these individuals engage in wheel-chair basketball and even head to the 2004 Olympics in Greece. What's interesting about this film is, even despite being confined to this type of mobility for the remainder of their lives, the characters sure harbour a lot of anger and the origins of their injuries is not always debilitating disease. The main person at the centre and featured on the DVD cover of this movie, Mark Zupan, ended up in wheel chair as a result of drunk driving relating incident (he was the intoxicated passenger of the drunk driver). Another one's situation resulted from being tossed off a porch during a drunken brawl. Some of these guys were clearly not all there during their situations. Interesting film, although the swearing amongst the participants gets out of hand after a while. Nice to see my home town of Burnaby, British Columbia in one clip of the picture.

Abdulrahman H (jp) wrote: The best out of the trilogy. Hilarious, exciting, twisty, and worth caring for.What makes this movie a masterpiece is how creative and rare it is. The ending had me drowning in tears and it's one of the best endings I've ever seen. Ya know why? Because this movie made you care about what's happening until it came to the point where they made us show are tears...but not our sad tears, our tears of joy and care. In my opinion, the best animated movie of my entire life so far. Toy Story 4, please be better than the best out of the trilogy!Score: 10/10 (Masterpiece).

This movie is a bit hard to follow at first but you get what is going on sooner or later. Not a happy movie as the subject matter can attest.

Christopher H (au) wrote: A cheesy The Thing/Alien knock-off that...actually turned out to be a lot better than it probably had any right to be.Yeah the ending was a load of bull, but this is a surprisingly effective creature feature for the most part. The special effects and set designs are high-quality, plus Peter Weller and Ernie Hudson really shine.

John T (ag) wrote: Dick Powell gives one of his best dramatic performances as the classic private investigator Philip Marlowe in this adaptation of Raymond Chandler's classic novel, Farewell, My Lovely. The story is told in flashbacks and revolves around Marlowe's investigation of a missing jade necklace. The plot is typically convoluted for a Chandler novel. Marlowe, a somewhat down-on-his-luck private detective, is approached by Moose Malloy, a giant of a man who recently released from prison and is searching for his ex-girlfriend. Marlowe reluctantly accepts the case, but before he can make headway, he gets a second client, who wants Marlowe to accompany him on a late night pay-off. These two cases, although not apparent at the time, of course are intertwined and lead to numerous complications and murders.It contains all the characteristics of the genre: shadowy and starkly contrasted black & white cinematography, treacherous and morally ambiguous characters, voiceover narration and snappy dialogue. All of these elements work fine in the film, but what is most memorable is the surreal dream sequence and its drug-hazed aftermath when Marlowe is held captive in what appears to be an insane asylum. The scene powerfully captures the sense of confusion and weakness Marlowe is confronted with. The striking imagery of the sequence is so effective because it contrasts with the rest of the film that is mostly fast paced and dialogue-driven. Director Edward Dmytryk and cinematographer Harry Wild employ a lot of low key lighting and low angles, so this is a nice example of noir expressionist lighting. The confusing plot is full of plot twists and turns that further underscore the unpredictable nature of the world the film is set in. The mood is equally important to the plot; in fine film noir style.An excellent cast supports Dick Powell. Claire Trevor, as the femme fatale who it turns out is the woman the Malloy is looking for. Helen Grayle strikes the right balance of greed, tawdriness, sex appeal & cattiness, to match up with Marlowe. Perfect for a film noir. Anne Shirley, as Helen's step daughter provides a fresh faced softness to counteract against her stepmother's hardness. Her character brings out the humanity in Marlowe. Powell's chemistry with both ladies is evident. Otto Kruger is at his slimy best as Jules Amthor, the shady psychiatrist and con artist. But among the supporting actors, the most memorable one is former pro wrestler Mike Mazurki as the easily angered lovestruck punch drunk brute Moose Malloy who literally steals every scene he's in. His declaration that s girl is "as cute as lace pants" is memorable.This is noir the way its supposed to be. This is as classic film noir as they get. I would recommend this to those who are looking for the genre at it was meant to be - "like lighting a stick of dynamite, and telling it not to go off"!

Tanner B (de) wrote: Election (1999) C-103m. ??? 1/2Excellent comedy of complicated high school teacher Broderick who has outrageous love affair with two psychotic women and has an unqualified hatred for bloviating Witherspoon, who strives to become school president. Ingenious screenplay (written by Jim Taylor and director Payne) is wickedly funny, always on-target, and somehow, given the admittedly serious ingredients, avoids mean-spiritedness. Broderick is great, but Witherspoon is the standout. Broderick's most accomplished comedy to date.

David S (gb) wrote: The Devil Inside is another cheap shock-drop horror film. It has an annoying style of filming, the story is flimsy and full of holes, the dialogue is ridiculous, and the execution is worse than movies 30 years its elder. It is amazing that in the 21st century, movies still struggle so hard to create coherent stories with any sort of special effects to help alleviate the horror trait. The Devil Inside is a movie fit for no one, and a shame for all those who are doomed to waste their time on this blinded farce.
