Daniel P (br) wrote: Jeff Nichols' feature debut is a beautifully shot film about the consequences and cycle of violence, with memorable performances, judicious editing and great use of music. Looking back now, one of the greatest pleasures is seeing the potential Nichols has promised here being fully realised in later works like Take Shelter and Midnight Special, as well as the influence the film has had on works such as Blue Ruin.

Michael M (nl) wrote: All That Heaven Allows is a film about love's ability to transcend social barriers. In this film there is no antagonist but society itself. The main character must struggle not only with the close-minded community she lives in but also with the traditional values and prejudices within herself. Jane Wyman plays Cary Scott, a widow with two children in college. She is a lonely woman but not desperate. This fact is provided by Wyman's subtle yet powerful performance. When Harvey, Cary's friend and potential husband, purposes marriage he tells her, "I am not very romantic or impetuous but you'd hardly want that sort of thing". Wyman says nothing in response but conveys so much with a sad, defeated look that we know romance is exactly the sort of thing she needs. Early in the film Cary meets Ron, a gentle, transcendentalist gardener played with rugged softness by Rock Hudson. His earthy nature and simple philosophy of living life on your own terms intrigues Cary. However, something inside her hesitates. After all, he is the gardener and a good deal younger than her. What would the neighbors say? Ron and Cary's love blossoms ironically juxtaposed by the natural setting's transition from fall into winter. The course of true love never did run smooth and soon Mona Plash, the local gossip, has the whole town in an uproar. Cary's best friend Sara, (Agnes Moorehead) acts as a fulcrum between Cary's shift toward independence and the conservative upper class suburban obtuseness of the town of Stoningham, (a name which brings to mind swift puritanical justice). Sara's scenes act as a reminder to the audience of the outside pressure on Cary. The attacks on Cary's aberrant behavior come from all sides. Even her own children despise her new found love or at least what it means socially. This leads Cary to an inevitable climatic moment when she most choose between true love or conformity. The film's social message is quite overt. In fact, half way through the film Cary picks up a copy of Walden by Henry David Thoreau and actually verbalizes the main theme, "If a man does not keep pace with his companions because he hears a different drummer, let him step to the music he hears..." A simple message and one echoed throughout the film. Cary's greatest challenge is learning this lesson, "It should be so simple, two people are in love and want to be married. Why is it so difficult"? She learns that it is difficult because society constantly pressures you to fit in, something she had no problem doing in her former life when she was married to a successful businessman. The 1950's were a strange time in American history. While Middle America was desperately trying to hold on to traditional values, social change was occurring. This film promoted such change. Today, in our modern world, Cary would simply be teased and referred to as a Cougar. Perhaps, a title she might embrace. However, I am sure there are still people just as closed-minded today as they were back in Stoningham. All That Heaven Allows is a remarkable film. Visually, the Technicolor is vibrant and lush. Thematically, the story is at times far-fetched but so stirring and enveloping that anyone with a heart will be swept away. The music is sentimental but fits perfectly for this swelling melodrama. The acting is superb, especially Wyman's subtlety. Finally, the message of love against all odds makes for a gripping story and a social message just as strong today as it was back then.

Amy C (br) wrote: Filipino horrors are usually pretty good, but I didn't think much of Ouija. The screenplay was dull with a capital D. There was nothing really interesting or fresh going on in terms of the plot and the characters were badly written. However. Yes, I do have a good point. The way the deaths were shown was interesting. Especially the first one. I thought it was good how the character became like a solid ghost rather than your average walking through walls-floating-see through ghost.There isn't really much to say about this to be honest it wasn't amazing, it wasn't terrible. I didn't love it, I didn't hate it.

A great look into how fragile the human mind can be, and how tragic events can impact the actions that people take as a response to protect the mind.
Jarom F (fr) wrote: We were Soldiers reviewedJarom Ferris3.5 out of 4 starsWe were soldiers is a movie based on true events as recorded in a book written by Lt. Gen. Hal Moore. It recounts the first major battle of the Vietnam War. It follows Lt. Col. Hal Moore (Mel Gibson)-an extremely smart, family oriented man who loves being a soldier and that is dedicated to his men- through some of the worst fighting in the Vietnam War. This movie, although corny and clich at some point does paint a good picture of what it might have been like to be there on that day in November 1965 and it doesn't skimp on the gore. If you think that a movie about the Vietnam war should condemn and vilify the war and the soldiers you may not like this movie but if you are a cinephile like me you'll love it and you might notice some similarities to other movies in this genre like The Green Berets or Black Hawk Down.We were Soldiers takes place during one of the most difficult times in United States history. The country was completely divided over our involvement in the Vietnam War. This movie stays completely away from the politics though. It focuses mainly on the soldiers themselves and their wives. It really brings to light the reality and the horrors of war. It paints a picture of death and destruction and loss on both sides. It doesn't make the enemy out to be evil savages like so many movies before but human beings who lead lives before the war and that left behind wives and children just like Lt. Col. Moore and the soldiers under his command did.Along with gore and the harshness of the battle front, this movie does a good job in portraying the hardships and the anxiety that the wives of Lt. Col. Moore and his soldiers. Julie Moore (Madeleine Stowe) along with Barbara Geoghegan (Keri Russel) are put in a position where they have to deliver the telegrams to the wives of the soldiers that had been killed in battle which would have been emotionally taxing in its own right.Director Randall Wallace ( Pearl Harbor) does a great job capturing the physically and emotionally taxing ordeal that these brave men of the seventh cavalry had to go through during those 3 days they were there. Although he did throw in some corny and clich lines, most of which are spoken by Lt. Col Hal Moore's second in command, Sgt. Maj. Basil Plumely ( Sam Elliot), they didn't take anything away from the overall greatness of this movie. It is a fitting tribute to the men of the seventh cavalry who died that day thousands of miles away from their home and to the many Vietnamese soldiers who did the same.All in all no matter what your thoughts are about the Vietnam War, this movie is worth the 2 hours you'll put into watching it. You'll come out with more gratefulness and respect to people like Lt. Col. Moore and his men who are so willing to lay down their lives for freedom.
