Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
In the spring of 1984, a strange new comic book sat beside cash registers in select shops, too big to fit in the racks, and too weird to ignore. Eastman and Laird's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles presented a completely original breed of super hero. It was too bizarre, too crazy. It broke all the rules and should never have worked. Until it sold out. Again and again and again. For 30 years. Now, peek under the shell and see how this so-called "happy accident" defied every naysayer to become one of the most popular and beloved franchises in the world.

(mx) wrote: Political, social and ethnic drama, Night Catches Us is a serious, sometimes provoking and often uneven drama over a painful part of the American history. Its great potential is somehow lost by the too many loose ends in the storyline, but the most important discovery of this movie is the outstanding performances of the totally unknown to the wide audience cast.The story of the life in an Afro-American neighborhood and the return of Anthony Mackie to it, during extremely turbulent times, starts in a very slow pace. Luckily enough, towards the mid-section and the final, the story develops in a much more coherent and engaging way. Multiple ethnic, social and political issues are brought on stage in Night Catches Us and few got any development. Even fewer result in any emotional outburst or intrigue, which deprives the storyline from really memorable content. Probably the biggest achievement of the storyline is that director Tanya Hamilton has managed to portray life in her movie, just as it is in reality: it is never black or white - it is all about nuances. The movie's biggest asset is its cast. Starring widely unknown names (with a partial exception of Anthony Mackie), the cast is simply stunning. Performances based not on dialogues, but on body language, long pauses and authentic behavior could only satisfy the fans of B-movies and art house dramas.Unfortunately this is not enough to make Night Catches Us a truly remarkable movie. Despite its promising premises and wonderful cast, it fails to deliver a coherent and engaging story. It fails to provoke any emotional involvement and it is simply very easily forgettable for such kind of serious and demanding drama. Though, it is worth giving it a try.....

Instead, he hooked up with Upton Sinclair to make a movie about Mexico with Diego Rivera one of the guides. "Que Viva Mexico" is the result of those efforts, restored some years after the fact and sadly missing one of its planned episodes that was never made due to low funds. This was apparently shot on silent film stock with sound effects and a musical soundtrack that veers between electronic and Ennio Morricone on acid added later. "Que Viva Mexico" is a rousing ethnographic panorama of the country from pre-Colombian days to the then present day. Through these brief episodes, made with no professional actors, we get a wide glimpse of Mexico's changing attitudes and customs over times. For example, the sacrifices that now occur are the bulls in the ring, with an early use of the 'bull cam.'

(ca) wrote: It's a rather Dickensian tale, but a muted Dickensian tale. The structural echoes of PATHER PANCHALI were in some ways pleasing, but made the ending very predictable. A lot to appreciate, but I wouldn't call it a "masterpiece."
