The Story of Lovers Rock

The Story of Lovers Rock

In the 70s and 80s Britain was rife with racial tension and police harassment particularly against black British youths. These youths were the rebel generation who were also searching for an identity. They created a music - a sub genre of reggae known as Lovers Rock. This music became a global brand through artists like UB40 and Maxi Priest. The music brought a level of intimacy between young people that was unique. It was also 'girl power' music that empowered a generation of young women. Through comedy, live performance, dance, interviews and archive the film takes you back to an untold era of British cultural, music and political history.

Chris M (mx) wrote: another one of Jack Hill's classic femmes that kick ass flicks... and like most of them, this one is exceptionally good fun. Don't be surprised when you find yourself actually caring about some of the characters!

Jennifer B (de) wrote: Actually rather entertaining! Some great singing by the leads, the 'bad guys' are geeks and annoying but otherwise some fun and sun! super cheesy but entertaining!

Lee M (it) wrote: It's impossible not to appreciate the remarkable performances (both Harris and Roberts were nominated for Oscars) or the realistic rugby scenes that earned Harris a broken leg.

Martin T (ru) wrote: Ten years after The Set-Up, Robert Wise and Robert Ryan team up for another brilliant noir. Two down-on-their-luck guys are driven to bank robbery by desperate circumstances. Complicating matters is that one is a bigot (Ryan) and one is black (Harry Belafonte). As a late-period noir, there are some apparent differences. Although the production code is still in effect, you can see it starting to bend, with overt references to rape and orgies, and a blatantly homosexual character (about as blatant as you could be in 1959, anyway). There also isn't the high-contrast photography characteristic of noir. Instead, Wise (and cinematographer Joseph C. Brun) beautifully paints the screen in shades of gray, appropriate for the more nuanced aura of the story. Ryan, one of the most underappreciated actors, is at his very best. Belafonte is absolutely wonderful, hip and charming but also dark, and with his own set of prejudices. It seems he was more willing to take chances than his friend and contemporary, Sidney Poitier. There's also a fine roster of excellent supporting actors, including Ed Begley, Shelley Winters, Gloria Grahame (looking very, um, tempting in her bra), Kim Hamilton and a brief appearance by young Wayne Rogers ("Trapper John" from the M*A*S*H show). I also have to mention the amazing avant-garde score by Jazz Hall of Famer John Lewis, and the striking use of sound design, often bridging scenes with a particular sound effect. Another sign of the times: scattered references to atom bombs. The film's climax even evokes a post-nuclear landscape, and suggests that racism has no place in an atomic age. The film is grim, claustrophobic, gripping, sharp, and damn near perfectly executed. I'm trying of think of anything bad to say about it and coming up blank.

Pamela D (kr) wrote: A pretty good summation, but it missed a few memorable incidents, such as an occasion when three German soldiers rushed York in single file. Armed only with a .45, he shot the combatant who was FARTHEST away first, then the one in the middle, and finally the one in front with a split second to spare. The German in front had no idea his two comrades behind him were already dead.

Jason M (ca) wrote: This is the worst instalment of the Austin Powers trilogy. However, it still delivers some gags. However, the plot is somewhat disjointed and contrived. The acting is tired and the addition of Beyonc in a supporting role is especially horrible and miscast. Michael Caine's appearance cannot save this film. This franchise had certainly "jumped the shark" at this point.

Khaled M (fr) wrote: . If frequencies can determine the laws of attraction, luck, love and destiny then you're about to watch a very controversial brilliant story. . What happens if a boy wanted to overcome his "low" frequency to fall in love with whom he's against nature with. . Equally provocative and captivating, it has more intelligence and imagination than many blockbuster Hollywood movies I've seen in the last couple of years.

Mike B (es) wrote: I totally agree with the consensus review above. The acting by the leads, except Sinise, was really bad. The plot is silly.

Jayakrishnan R (ru) wrote: 62%Saw this on 28/11/16Albeit suffering from a generic plotline, Solomon Kane succeeds to a certain extent due to its craft, especially the cinematography, atmosphere, gore and good VFX. It's not a disappointing film and James Purefoy is good as the lead notwithstanding his poor voice.

Andr D (gb) wrote: Basada en la saga "Superman/Brainiac", esta pelicula directo a video protagonizada por el Hombre de Acero y Superchica, nos muestra a un Brainiac que representa tanto la amenaza alienigena como el temor por la tecnologia. "Superman Unbound" es una pelicula llena de accion que a la vez sirve como alegoria al control, a la sobreproteccion y su relacion con la libertad: grandes ambiciones para un video animado.

Brad S (nl) wrote: Talk about an enigma wrapped in a riddle inside Pandora's Box. The Fifth Estate is a didactic mess in terms of structure and character, making the film sink under it's split personalities. No matter how hard they try, both Cumberbatch and Br 1/4hl end up playing characters I just didn't believe on screen and didn't understand or care about. Combined with a weird film structure where the movie sometimes feels like a documentary with the characters talking directly to me during an onscreen conversation due to the way the camera is looking at them but their almost looking at me. The ending of the film was a complete mess where it turns into a meta analysis of the film itself by Assange thru Cumberbatch. I can see now why this film was a box office and critical bomb. I wanted it to be as relevant and engaging as The Social Network, which was clearly an influence on it, but it lacked the good storytelling Sorkin and Fincher. The cinematography and production design are beautiful and a feast for the eyes, but the music just didn't fit for me. It was a distraction many times and didn't let me hear the dialogue, even the the dialogue was often a mess.Nice try by everyone involved, but ultimately this one's a failure.
