Leon Bronstein is not your average Montreal West high school student. For one thing, none of his peers can claim to be the reincarnation of early 20th century Soviet iconoclast and Red Army hero, Leon Trotsky. When his father sends Leon to public school as punishment for starting a hunger strike at Papa's clothing factory, Leon quickly lends new meaning to the term 'student union', determined as he is to live out his pre-ordained destiny to the fullest and change the world.

(ca) wrote: One line summary: Murky horror/mystery set in a village in Massachusetts.---------------- Rachel is a reporter of sorts, and Greg is a screenwriter. Both of them become interested in reports of mass hysteria in a small town in Massachusetts. By some circumstance, they end up being room mates in a large house in the area. The locals vary between not forthcoming and outright hostile. Rachel takes a job at a local eatery. Rachel keeps in touch with her boss by telephone. Greg floats around looking for information to help his creative process. Paul and Jim help Rachel with clues as they can. Greg's position turns out to be ambiguous; he steals some of Rachel's research materials and gives them to the villagers. Max, Rachel's boss, is glad to help her, but needs some sort of supporting facts before bringing in authorities to deal with the evil-doers. Will Rachel get to the bottom of this? Will Greg's position become clear? Will the secrets be revealed?-----Scores----- Cinematography: 8/10 Mostly clear and sharp; only occasionally falls into shaky camera mode. Sound: 6/10 The music is reasonably creepy, but is often over the top compared to the story and visuals. Acting: 1/10 I have nothing good to say here. Screenplay: 0/10 Where do I begin? Editing is a clear weakness; some clips are out of sequence. Exposition of motivations is not good; I saw only a pinch of that on two characters. Too many of the short conversations in the film seemed context free. The historical flashbacks seemed to have little or nothing to do with the main story line. The ending may have been meant to be as wonderful as the ending of The Sixth Sense, but it fell flat instead.

(ca) wrote: Yeah...ok. Low budget horror film with a very lame premise. That being said, it isn't painful. It isn't good either though. Not bad enough to be funny or good, but not bad enough to be horrible. The good news: nice shots of Paris and passable acting. The bad news: plot, plot, effects, plot, and ...the whole premise. This money could have been better spent on zombies. Lots and lots of zombies.

(ag) wrote: Why am I rating a 2006 movie? First off, I liked back it in the day. It was a small charming movie. But, the real reason I am rating this scenario is that it is now a play. Today, October 3rd, was the second day of its run in Chicago. I believe it is getting set for a run on Broadway. Guess what. Cyndi Lauper wrote the lyrics and music to this play. I went with a little trepidation. Does she know how to write music for Broadway? Is she past her prime? Well, she knocked it out of the park. Before I forget, what is the play/movie about? Charlie Pride is a young guy who is a member of a shoe making family for 5 generations. There is only one problem - he doesn't want to make shoes. He moves to London to start his new destiny. Almost immediately he's forced to return and run the company. The company is in distress. Can he save it from Bankruptcy? They have been making traditional fine British shoes, which just aren't selling in a world of business casual. What can he do to revamp the company? Kinky boots? If you live in Chicago, I recommend this play. Hurry. It is only here for a five week run.

There are moments of laugh-out-loud comedy combined with some serious messages about how to live a full and happy life. It's an incredibly sweet, innocent, and heartwarming film that I recommend to any independent film fan.

Like the decision to not and then TO bring his dad back made in literally 2 minutes was kind of bad writing. The lead was good and the blues-ish score from Bon Jovi's keyboardist was good!

(ca) wrote: The film tries to throw a lot of ideas from Yip-Man's legend into the mix but ultimately fails to convey anything that's lucid. Sure the martial arts sequences are really well done but they simply don't justify having to subject yourself to acting this bad you'd think you were watching an Ed Wood Film. Supporting characters who really have no business taking up any amount of screen time are treated to torturous amounts of it, a fact that isn't helped by a plot that's so by the numbers and so filled with cliche's you may find yourself puking into a bucket half the time. This "film" is an insult to all of the brilliant works to come from China in their past, a kick to the groin for any fan of Bruce Lee, Yip-Man, or good taste, and is overall a terrible flick. Please do yourself a favor and just watch The Chinese Connection instead already. On a bright note this film still is way better than Dragon Ball Evolution and the worst film of all time, Shaolin Soccer 2.
