A teen movie star attempts to overcome her addition to alcohol and salvage what's left of her career after passing out on the red carpet at her big Hollywood premiere and being sent to recover with her upbeat aunt in Indiana. Morgan Carter (Jo Jo) is only seventeen years old, but she's already on top of the world. But so much fame so early in life can yield unpredictable consequences, and when Morgan is sent to the hospital with alcohol poisoning, it's clear that she isn't ready to deal with the pressures of stardom. Whisked away to rehab as the paparazzi clamors for a picture and the press predicts her downfall, Morgan is sent by her mother and concerned manager to Indiana, far away from the temptations of Hollywood. Once there, the troubled starlet reluctantly starts to reconnect with her quirky Aunt Trudy (Valerie Bertinelli), who offers just the kind of unconditional support that the young girl needs to get her life - and career - back on track.

Craig W (gb) wrote: This isn't so much of a film review but a review on Brit Marling. An aspiring actress who saw the lack of opportunities in Hollywood (varied slasher films auditions which involved running away half naked from madmen with chainsaws, for instance) and took it upon herself to write her own screenplays and create her own personal art form, which won the recognition she deserved. This film is a credit to her and a credit to the film industry. A low budget 'sci-fi' - now i use the sci-fi genre tag loosely here as it's been pulled apart by some critics and I can see why, but it's more of a deep thinking drama. A compelling story that unfolds slowly exploring all the tragedies of life and the beauty within people with the screenplay revolving around character building. It won't be for everyone. But it's well worth a mention as these films tend to go under the radar along with people like Brit Marling - who should be acknowledged.

Christina E (ag) wrote: Having read the synopsis, it wasn't what I expected. I was expecting the serial killer to be the main killer. Instead, he's hardly in the film, he kills twice, a wolf gets a kill and the bear gets the rest. Once I got over my initial disappointment, the film was actually pretty good. It's worth seeing again.

Matthew H (au) wrote: Almost as good as the original, Wedding decides to have Jim and Michelle marry in this one, and what happens at the wedding is purely hilarious and comical genius. Of course, the movie is raunchy and crude as usual, but to be honest, we're all used to it by now.

Jules H (ru) wrote: The general concept is fun, the characters are interesting and the animation keeps it moving at an reasonable pace.However, the film suffers from one major flaw: Being far too pandering. The pop culture references come off as forced as does the humor. Not to mention the songs are mediocre at best and mostly forgettable.Quest For Camelot is an ambitious effort with superb animation and a surprising amount of depth in it's characters. But sadly, it lacks an abundance of wit and heart. It's a good mediocrity, but a mediocrity nonetheless.
Stephen C (mx) wrote: Be warned if you dont like Opera then stay well away ,and if you dont want to see Jean Luc Godard make an arse of himself then avoid this too. Godard segement of the film is easily the most boring and goes nowhere where others such as Russells are spellbinding and a treat to watch so in order here is my view on the sequences Nic Roegs-Good start and Having Theresa Russel play a man is a masterstroke. Charles Sturridge- a short black and White gem about kids stealing a car its one of my faves in the whole film Godards- a boring mess and one i could have done with out watching Julien Temples -the Funniest of the films with a good use of steadycam and a Elvis impersonater doing Opera Brue Beresfords - short yes but rather beautiful imagery of quiet cities stunning music Robert Altman- an Interesting experiment that of course wwill divide opinion but Altman always does that its one of his trademakrs Franc Roddams -haunting and tragic love story set in Las Vegas lingers long in the mind afterwards Ken Rusells- amazing visauls from the old troublemaker and my favorite of all the films Derek Jarman- wondefully shot and rather touching with of course the radiant Tilda Swinton. Bill Brydens sequence bridges the whole film and works well. So fron the shite from Godard to the wondeful from Rusell if you want to get in to opera this film works pretty well
Leonard P (ru) wrote: Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior is a film I highly recommend for anyone who is a fan of post-apocalyptic action films. Not only is this a perfectly directed improvement from it's 1979 predecessor, but it's also a superb film on it's own, with the story, action, cinematography, and pacing all being top-notch and exquisitely executed.Mel Gibson as the renowned Max Rockatansky is as excellent as acting performances can be, and the other actors in the film did a fantastic job as well. Everything about this film was an absolute thrill ride. It's no wonder people hail this movie as one of the best action films of all time.This film definitely deserves the 98% approval rating RT gave it. George Miller as a director did a really good job with the first Mad Max, but for Mad Max 2, he completely nailed it. This film is definitely a classic in my eyes.

Raaj C (mx) wrote: 1776 is an enchanting musical drama of on the founding of the United Stats of America based on the award-winning Broadway production. It pretty much leads everything up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. It is the perfect way for ALL of us to get to know our history. The songs and music are downright wonderful and surprisingly helps bring up the tension in the film. The performances are highly stellar. The thing that REALLY brings this movie musical together is the dialogue and interaction. Every character, despite being based on actual persons, are really interesting to see when they move, talk, or sing. Ben Franklin is really likable and funny in this one. I think most people will like HIM the most. Overall, 1776 is a wonderful way to not only kick back and relax, but also to get to know our true history in a musical way. I am giving this film a 5/5 stars. Check it out! You will love it!

Ben K (fr) wrote: I Am Number Four attempts to begin an epic sci-fi franchise for teens, but the derivative plot and unmemorable characters make this prospect doubtful. The hero is an alien named John Smith disguised on Earth as a teenage boy (is this a Smallville remake?) with his alien protector and father figure, Henri (Timothy Olyphant). They are forced to stay on the move in order to evade evil aliens called Mogadorians. They have killed the first three of John's counterparts, and John is the fourth, hence the film's title. There are five more of his kind, whom John and Henri must seek out in order to survive.What follows is a passable yet forgettable sci-fi romp that has little to add to what has been done before. I Am Number Four hardly attempts to disguise the recycled story beats from classics in epic fantasy stories, treading in the footsteps of countless others. The film isn't without entertainment value however, as a character's small dog transforms into a gigantic beast and fights two equal opponents with hilarious results. The movie should have had more wackiness like that, instead of trying to reach for such lofty ambitions that just are not realistic.5/10(review originally posted on release, but has since been edited and improved by author on April 11, 2017)
Spencer S (fr) wrote: There is a lot of funny ideas and great dialogue in this independent film, but perhaps because of the subject matter and obsession with being crude, the film suffers. Anna Kendrick basically plays the same character as usual, as does John Francis Daley, which is fine since they are portraying very nonplussed atheists taking this new world in little by little. A lot of the ideas were really solid, but the film also meanders around far too long. Craig Robinson, as much as I love him, was way too over the top and vulgar. Though I appreciated his performance for what it was, his scenes went on far too long and his vocabulary relied heavily on the profane. The ending was really well thought out and the overall message was nice, as atheism isn't given much credence. Still, the reliance on Robinson to carry most of this film makes it flounder under its own weight.
Hugo G (br) wrote: It disappointed me because of the fact that it had a bad plot and characters. The story seemed to go nowhere and everything was all over the place with many inconsistencies. What I liked, was the good make-up effects and all the gore which was very good and extreme. Also, there were some scenes that looked very beautiful and it looked very artistic. Overall, it was a better movie of death sequences than an overall horror movie.
