(au) wrote: Bill and his family think they have received a fresh start when they move out of the city, but Bill's past is about to catch up to him when his former employer is released from prison and has a group of men sent out to look for his stolen cash. What the men don't realize is that Bill's son is fresh out of a mental care facility, himself, for his tendency towards extreme violence whenever he is pushed over the edge! While the general premise offers nothing new in the way of crime thrillers, director Steven C. Miller only uses this as a platform for the unrelenting action that is to follow. THE AGGRESSION SCALE is almost comical in its Acme-like approach to graphic violence, and although it packs a number of intense moments along the way, the characters and situations are nothing short of contrived. That never takes away from the fun, however, as Derek Mears and the other hit men take an absolute beating from their teenage target. When it comes to the exploitation of raw, gritty violence and gore in an action flick, THE AGGRESSION SCALE definitely passes the test!
(mx) wrote: American short-story writer and essayist Harlan Ellison has more in common with old-school Jewish comics like Lenny Bruce, Mel Brooks and Woody Allen than with the science fiction masters he's usually lumped in with, like Asimov, Bradbury, Clarke and Dick. With a raging social conscience, an utter disdain for pretension, bad writing, and those who tolerate mediocrity and intolerance, there's nothing he won't say. Ellison's larger-than-life persona and willingness to walk the walk have made him a legendary and contentious figure albeit, oddly, one not widely known outside lovers of genre fiction--probably because he's never had a major, popular film officially adapted from his stories, and his books are maddeningly difficult to find in bookstores. In DREAMS WITH SHARP TEETH we get to see Harlan read--from memory--portions of his most famous stories; hang out in his astonishing LA home, dubbed Ellison Wonderland, with fellow motormouth Robin Williams; relive misadventures from his 50-year career with old friends and fellow writers; and see terrific vintage clips of him from the '60s and '70s talking about his love of vengeance and the revolutionary powers of fiction. Long a crusader for the property rights of writers everywhere, he's been the bane of existence for producers, editors and, indeed, other writers, for decades. His rejection of religion and spirituality in all its forms is truly inspiring, and his contempt for barely literate bestseller pop fiction and the mind-numbing effects of bad TV is unparalleled. Ellison may write books that historically have been shelved in the science fiction section but he is as committed and passionate about the real world as any political activist. "No, you don't have the right to your own opinion," he says, "you have the right to an *informed* opinion. Anything else is just farts in the wind." Ellison reveals writing for the hard yet simple work it is and sneers at those who would relegate this necessary social function to some ethereal elitist plane. DREAMS WITH SHARP TEETH is a rare glimpse into the too-often unseen world of those who create with words and have the courage and conviction to back that up.

(de) wrote: Got better than I expected in this movie, and I'd say its one of Nicolas Cage's best movies. It gets straight to the point, when only a few minutes in the crash happens. As for the initial crash and attack part, it didn't really show anything, only one or two shots of the building with the hole in it and that's all. No crash scene, no building collapse, (from the outside anyway) and only one person falling from the tower. So not at all intense, just a few police talking with paper falling around them and emergency vehicles driving around behined them. So thats kind of a letdown. Then they enter the building, and all seems quiet until the building collapses, trapping three of them for the rest of the movie. So not very exciting at anytime, just slow, sad and claustrophobic. Not a lot happens, just two surviving police talking about home and family and another side of the movie showing the families as they cry and wonder if their husbands are alive. It's a little boring, but at the same time interesting, a little like 127 Hours. The ending is predictable but good, and doesn't really seem realistic. So a good movie, the first about 9/11 I've seen, but problably not the best.

(nl) wrote: Members of a small theater struggle to keep their company afloat in occupied France during WWII. The Last Metro is a great period piece revolving around a dark time in French history as well as a character study of people under stress without any of the usual sentimental cliches. Catherine Deneuve is outstanding as the leader of the theater and Gerard Depardieu is her leading man with a secret agenda.
(de) wrote: The film that cemented Amitabh Bachchan as the 'Angry Young Man' of Hindi cinema. To fully appreciate the phenomenal importance of this film, one has to remember it was released during a time of serious political unrest, and the 'by any means necessary' approach to cleaning up crime put forward in the film made Amitabh a hero for the people. This is a great revenge crime flick, and ranks with Deewaar as one of the best Hindi films of the 1970s.
