This documentary covers a whole lot of ground. It deals with every historical and contemporary aspect of hemp usage and cultivation (mainly in the U.S.), which turns out to be a lot. From describing the production of a fiber much more durable and economic than wood, the documentary discusses hemps multilateral uses as e.g. food products, as a non-polluting fuel and as a pharmaceutical product with much less grievous side-effects than chemical pharmaceutical products. The film also investigates why America went from a country which produced vast quantities of the non-narcotic industrial hemp, to the complete ban on hemp production in 1938. This story in particular is interesting, and it points out that the large oil-based industries actually had a key role in the aforementioned ban. Food for thought! The conclusion of the documentary could be that hemp may prove to be a valid alternative to both oil and wood in the future.
Dann M (es) wrote: Full of mystery and intrigue, The Forgotten is a suspenseful psychological thriller that kind of goes off the rails. The story follows a grieving mother who lost her son in a plane crash, but soon all evidence of her son's existence is erased, leaving her to question her sanity and desperate to prove that he was real. Julianne Moore gives a fairly good performance, as does Gary Sinise. Additionally, the storytelling does an impressive job at building up the mystery of the missing child. But the ending is completely ridiculous and comes out of nowhere. A rather pointless and inane film, The Forgotten fails to payoff its mystery and insults the audience with nonsensical tripe.

James W (br) wrote: A lot of films like this start off with action and explosions, then they start to die out after and become boring filled with boring dialogue and one too many office based scenes that don't propel the story, examples are Rendition and Body Of Lies plus more, but Traitor is an exception, the action stays solid and full on explosive from start to finish, and it's necessary action. Don Cheadle heads an all star cast in one of the most gripping thrillers I've ever seen, where the shadowy world of intelligence and operatives intrigues you to find out the truth behind the motives of the many exciting characters featured in Traitor.

Adam L (kr) wrote: A sluggish first quarter and an atrocious musical score by Jonathan Lee prove the only significant drawbacks to "Supercop" the third installment in Jackie Chan's "Police Story" series. Once this loose cannon of an action film gets going -- much like the original -- there's no stopping it. The final reel houses Chan's lust for flirting with death as he dangles from a helicopter ladder over Kuala Lumpur before fighting two assailants on a moving train. Michelle Yeoh co-stars as a PRC captain who matches her male counterparts' martial arts agility in nearly every frame and even manages to jump a dirt bike on to said moving train making her the first (and last) female to prove Chan's equal on screen. In 1992, Hollywood's largest grossing action film was "Lethal Weapon 3" but the real police story's right here.
