With unprecedented access to the UN Department of Peacekeeping, The Peacekeepers provides an intimate and dramatic portrait of the struggle to save "a failed state" The film follows the determined and often desperate maneuvers to avert another Rwandan disaster, this time in the Democratic Republic of Congo (the DRC). Focusing on the UN mission, the film cuts back and forth between the UN headquarters in New York and events on the ground in the DRC. We are with the peacekeepers in the "Crisis Room" as they balance the risk of loss of life on the ground with the enormous sums of money required from uncertain donor countries. We are with UN troops as the northeast Congo erupts and the future of the DRC, if not all of central Africa, hangs in the balance. In the background, but often impinging on peacekeeping decisions, are the painful memory of Rwanda, the worsening crisis in Iraq, global terrorism, and American hegemony in world affairs.

(ag) wrote: They completely ruined the story of 'Dracula' and for that I was very disappointed. HOWEVER- Marc Warren does some of the best character work I have seen in a long time. I love what he did with Dracula. SO! Hated the plot (and the casing of Sophia Myles- COME ON!) but Loved Marc's work.
(ca) wrote: Norma Rae didn't seem to me to be the inspiring tale it was advertised as, and relied more on simple dialogue to tell the story without providing many interesting plot dynamics outside of the main one about Norma Rae forming a union which seemed to have gotten tangled amongst the several subplots which didn't seem to have direction, and so Norma Rae became a difficult thing to embrace.I didn't feel that Norma Rae was all that it could have been, because the hgeneral atmosphere never felt like it supported Norma Rae's actions and if anything I felt like it was trying to make out that Reuben Warshowsky was the hero and that Norma Rae was really his protege.The problem I felt with Norma Rae was that director Martin Ritt relied too much on Sally Field to hold her own in the story, and despite the fact that she did a great job, the provided atmosphere just didn't seem to make Norma Rae's dynamics have an effect on the audience. For example, the scene where Norma Rae stands up and shows a sign with the word "UNION" written on it, the entire situation seemed only enhanced by the look on passion in Sally Field's eyes while the sign showed to all the people in the room and inspired them. Although it was realistic it just lacked motivation and a reason why I as a viewer would get the feel that was intended, especially since in the next scene she gets dragged away and we receive no confirmation as to the lasting effect due to little influence on the story thanks to Martin Ritt's direction or the editing. If maybe there had of been a little music in the situation I would have grasped the feel more significantly, but I didn't and I just witnessed a blank sight of people turning of machines as if to just stare at Norma Rae. The feel just wasn't in the right place for me, and it's a shame because I felt the whole story was leading to that moment.That was the primary issue, as well as the fact that so many sub plot dynamics deviated from the primary story and became merely stretched over a period of 110 minutes, and so I felt Norma Rae was simplistic and slow.Aside from all of that, Sally Field gave a great performance. It wasn't mesmerising to me as it would have been for audiences in 1979, primarily because I know what she can do as I've seen her second Oscar-Winning performance in Places in the Heart, and so she didn't have to break free from the shackles of sitcom stardom. But here, Sally Field portrays such a strong character who's dressed in the simplest of clothing and therefore could not be more human. Her strength never becomes ridiculous and relies more on her emotional traits to do the job, and so Sally Field's performance is just perfect and is the bare redemption of the film, because despite how I found various clunks In the structure and dynamics of Norma Rae, there was never any doubt in Sally Field's performance and so she almost held Norm Rae together perfectly. Sally Field was just perfect for the part and brought a great balance of sweetness and integrity to the role, and there was enough of it in her voice and smile alone and then her performance was just the cream filling in the somewhat dry cake that was Norma Rae.So many people may have felt the inspiring motif of the story in Norma Rae, and although i wasn't really one of them I did largely enjoy Sally Field's performance.

(fr) wrote: Martin Lawrence is a jewel thief who gets caught trying to steal a diamond. He sticks it in a vent of an under construction building. He remembers the location and when he gets out of jail, he looks to go reclaim his haul. Unfortunately, it is a police station. He fabricates a resume and badge and ends up in burglary and helps solve cases with his 'expertise'. The film is dumb, but it is incredibly enjoyable. Plenty of laughs and action, much better than i expected it to be.

(gb) wrote: This is a comedy western movie but it is a different one because there is not much fight or gunfight in it. This is very sympathetic movie also funny in some scenes. Our hero is a new yorker guy that steals women money with charming them. He comes to west city but he doesn't like the west and the guns, horses and etc. People in this city thinks he is a hired famous gunman, he uses this identity. This is the general subject of the movie. Acting is good for a comedy movie, there is also romance and this is a plus for this one. I liked this movie and enjoyed when watching but if you look for a classic movie don't look at this one. I watched this one at a Sunday morning.
