(de) wrote: Not once did I, nor I expect most people, think about the welfare of animals when witnessing the carnage caused by Katrina. This is a brilliant angle on the disaster but focuses more on the human side of animal lovers, most of whom lived in poverty. The trauma of pet owners who weren't allowed by the authorities to evacuate with their animal is very tangible, and then the subsequent struggle to get their pets back was angering. This is a clear example of how documentary makers can affect change. Without the film crew showing the new pet owners the misery of the former owners, I doubt whether any of the animals would have been returned. Great film.

I read some of the comics and watched the cartoon and I think they did good with the limited time they had. A sequel would have been nice, though. The thing I don't like about the movie is a complaint that I have about virtually all post-1990 zombies. Go back and watch Dawn of The Dead, or to better illustrate my point go to low budget horror -- it works because it looks dirty. It looks like rotting flesh and it looks gross. Now look at Spawn. He doesn't look like burned flesh, he looks like he's wearing a clean suit that looks like burned flesh. I get that it's for a teen audience so I'm not holding it against the movie, but in movies that try to be more horror film-makers underestimate the importance of a dirty zombie.

(fr) wrote: I am an admirer of Paul Greengrass movies mainly for the editing and camera work which led me to watch this. An upclose account of the tragic events that turned a peaceful Irish 1972 Civil rights march to a deadly massacre which ended with 13 civilians killed and twice injured kickstarting a political blame game. Ivan Cooper (James Nesbitt), the Member of Parliament for the Irish town of Derry leads the charge of a Civil rights march. The British government bans the protest making the march illegal and also involves the military to crush the situation. Like any other riot anywhere else in the world, one thing leads to another involving rowdy hooligans, trigger happy policing and groups with vested interests. The movie divides its focus on a close look from Ivan Cooper's stand point, the British Military view and a couple of families that were affected by this day. Keeping in mind that it would get offensive for the real victims if there is even a single point in the script that justifies the military action, the writers and the directer tread carefully and mostly plays safe. Paul Greengrass shows his early taste for editing and camera work, but his talent is not on best display here. James Nesbitt does a terrific job as the man edging on emotional crisis with the way the day has turned out, but has to maintain his saneness and composure to concentrate on the operational detils. Sometimes gets a bit melodramatic and too emotional, but they must have been apt for the circumstance. Doesn't push it as hard as it could have and gets a little biased on the victims side. It has great moments placed in between mediocre ones. I wouldn't say it is a great movie, but does enough to use the emotional depth of this true story.

(gb) wrote: Wow..!!!!.. What a great film this is. I had heard about it when it was released and was intrigued by the comparisons that were drawn of Lee Evans to Charlie Chaplin. Praise indeed but certainly justified, but dont let you think this film is all about Lee Evans' character (Jack Parker). Brilliant though he is, the rest of the cast make this one of the best films I have ever seen.A unique story, with a touch of magic about it, this movie draws you in throughout and by the end you just want to go back to the start and re-live it all.Oliver Platt (as Tommy Fawkes) plays his finest role by far and, although I expect many people's favourite scene is Jack Parker's unforgettable one-man show (where his character first meets Tommy) but for me I couldn't get enough of the little variety acts that are performed in front of Tommy Fawkes. Where these acts came from I don't now, but they provided sheer joy, all to a terrific soundtrack. This film will not be everybody's cup of tea, but give it a go, if you take to it you will never forget it.

The movie spans about three decades, during which the family loses everything countless times yet they find the strength to cope with it and survive. An interesting movie about the difficulties people had to deal with during the stormy history of Chinese politics."Chinese censors objected to the film's commentary about political abuses in China's past, as well as Zhang Yimou's attempts to present the film at several international festivals. As punishment, he was forced to write a formal apology and was not allowed to make another film for two years."-Mark Deming, Rovi

(gb) wrote: No. Just... no. Whatever your feelings about Baz Luhrmann, everything about this movie is just plain wrong. The photography looks waxy and fake even when it's not CGI, the acting is atrocious, even considering the leaden-ness of the dialogue. That's right. There is absolutely no subtlety, grace, or subtext in any of the film's lines. If you want a romantic epic for the land down under, you're better off watching "Gone With the Wind" while reciting lines in an Australian accent.

But my work friends at the time convinced me that Pitch Perfect would be a delightful watch and they were right. With a focus on female camaraderie, Pitch Perfect represents unlikely but lovely female friendships. My favourite part of Pitch Perfect is the initial recruitment when the leaders are looking for a group of girls with beach ready bodies. What they end up getting is very, very different because none of the stereotypically beautiful bodied girls want to join their group. Fat Amy was especially dear to me as she defied fatphobia and was desirable throughout the film to the leader of the male a cappella group. By prefacing her name with Fat she was presenting a body positivity that transgressed beauty standards. Pitch Perfect does have its shortcomings though. The racialized characters are stereotyped. The queer, black lesbian is the butt of every we know she's gay but she won't come out joke. She is made to be 'thirsty' and socially awkward because of it. Some of the humour becomes a little repetitive and redundant as one of the women does a 'snow' angel in a pool of vomit. But, Pitch Perfect is filled with talented female actors with great chemistry and charisma. They are entertaining and light-hearted. I have watched Pitch Perfect several times since my initial viewing and every time I leave feeling silly and euphoric.
