The Price of Sugar
On the Caribbean island of the Dominican Republic, tourists flock to pristine beaches, with little knowledge that a few miles away thousands of dispossessed Haitians are under armed guard on plantations harvesting sugarcane, most of which ends up in US kitchens. Cutting cane by machete, they work 14 hour days, 7 days a week, frequently without access to decent housing, electricity, clean water, education, healthcare or adequate nutrition. The Price of Sugar follows a charismatic Spanish priest, Father Christopher Hartley, as he organizes some of this hemisphere's poorest people, challenging the powerful interests profiting from their work. This film raises key questions about where the products we consume originate, at what human cost they are produced and ultimately, where our responsibility lies.

(au) wrote: Wimbledon is a sweet, unpretentious, high flying, romantic comedy. The humor is intellectual, with interesting British dialogs without slangs or complications, and full of funny expressions.Paul Bettany has a number of subtle facial/body expression that are just the right spice for the tone of the movie. Although I always find it difficult to accept Kristen Dunst has playing a star, she's more suited as an athletic star and perfect as Paul Bettany's opposite, bringing spunk like she can easily do.The setting of the movie is quite interesting, and the shots beautiful. More over, the story has a full figure, and is peppered with interesting details. You can feel the English fever for Wimbledon, and the soundtrack is quite appropriate.Only a few things mar this beauty. First, most court commentators sound like their reading their script, especially McEnroe and Evert. Second, the tennis itself, while well edited, shows flaws from time to time.That being said, it is my favorite romantic comedy because it has everything and does it all right just like I want it.A must see.

Has a lot of interesting humor and is different than most sappy love stories. Another interesting note? There's a Baldwin in this flick!

Take it for what it is, a sweet kiddie flick and it is rather enjoyable. Yes it is manipulative and forced but, "Bad monkey don't steel" is funny beyond its faults.

(ru) wrote: Directed by Peter Yates (Summer Holiday (1963), Robbery (1967) and Bullitt (1968)) and written by Stanford Sherman (TV's Batman, Any Which Way You Can (1980) and The Ice Pirates (1984)), this fantasy film allegedly cost $50 million at the time, but hardly any of it can be seen on screen, which makes you wonder where did it all go?? It has a brilliant cast, but this has all been seen before in other films out at the time. On the planet Krull, Prince Colwyn (Ken Marshall) and Princess Lyssa (Lysette Anthony) are to marry to forge an alliance between their two warring kingdoms. However, a spaceship known as the Black Fortress, controlled by an evil entity known as The Beast, disrupt the wedding and kidnap Lyssa. Colwyn gathers together a team, consisting of Ynyr (Freddie Jones), Ergo (David Battley), Torquil (Alun Armstrong), Kegan (Liam Neeson), Rhun (Robbie Coltrane), Oswyn (Todd Carty), Bardolph (Dicken Ashworth) and Nennog (Bronco McLoughlin) go off on a quest through tough and near impossible terrain to rescue Lyssa and stop The Beast. It has it's moments, but a lot of it comes across as quite dull, despite a who's who of British TV and film in the supporting cast, there was a lot of fantasy films of varying quality being released around this time, and there is something old school about the effects here created by Derek Meddings, but that's about it.
