Where the Green Ants Dream
Extraordinary images from Werner Herzog. Shot in the Australian Outback the Aborigines (in this film anyway) believe that this is the place where the green ants go to dream, and that if their dreams are disturbed, it will bring down disaster on us all. The Aborigines' belief is not shared by a giant mining company, which wants to tear open the soil and search for uranium.

You will be highly educated about these scary fish but one you listen and learn about these fish you will be amazed on how wrong you can precive these animals.It is a great documentary for all I fell that High School Students will highly find this interesting and it can keep there attention as well.The facts that we are told in this documentary are great and does put your mind at rest once you know how the shark world works.Give this a go you will be amazed and if you have young boys in the house they will be like this is cool and be taken in by the wonder of the underwater world and learn something as well.Any school teachers out there wanting to teach the kids about the sea and the predators of the ocean this is great it is highly informative plus you do not see any wild attacks.
(es) wrote: One of the better end of the world films in a long time. The director fleshes out the characters and creates genuine emotional ties for the audience that really pulls at your heart strings when things happen. Given its title, the ending isn't avoidable, but how the characters arrive at their final destinations is what drives this film to be great. Not a single character is the same from start to finish.
(nl) wrote: A film that could have been far more bland in the hands of a different director. Instead it has a quiet, human feel with compelling characters. The writing is strange, coming from a place of unabashed honesty and authenticity. If you are looking for a fun, sexy movie that allows you to remain thoughtless and spoonfed, this is not, in fact, the movie for you.

(br) wrote: If there is an underlying theme to Aronofsky's work, it's that of fantastic art not quite finished or fully envisioned. With the exception of Black Swan, each of his films are interesting and at times compelling but suffer a sense of being incomplete. The Fountain is perhaps the best example of this. A combination of themes found in The Matrix, Cloud Atlas, Interstellar, 2001 and a number of other transcendent films, The Fountain is visually fascinating, fairly well acted and in certain moments, quite brilliant. However, the lack of budget certainly shows in Aronofsky's darkened, micro cinematography, which produces some interesting visuals but ultimately shrouds the movie in a rather annoying shadow. The cast and set also feel a bit half-baked as well. Jackman and Weisz are very capable leads but somehow they just don't feel quite at home, probably a reflection of the second string nature of their casting, leading to a movie that wasn't written for them. Ideologically, Aronofsky has stated that the film is a Rubik's cube open to interpretation but as with all films of this scope, there is a fine line between tangled threads and threads woven together to form something great. Sometimes they look the same but at the end of the day, only one is being made into something beautiful. The Fountain feels like the former, a jumble of reused shots, incoherent timelines, Michael Bay like movement sequences and confusing backstory. The result just never comes together like great films like Cloud Atlas and The Matrix do. Instead, Aronofsky's creation just sort of trickles out at the end, a pretty limp, unsure finish for a movie so bold. Ultimately, although I suspect that this lack of clear vision is going to be a significant factor in Aronofsky's long term legacy and short term calling card, one has to wonder what the director might have been able to do with a full budget and his first picks at the helm. Cloud Atlas, a film in a similar grain, was given an unlimited budget practically and the directors were given carte blanche to create and the results are fantastic, even if critics still refuse to acknowledge it. Might Aronofsky have been able to do the same? We will never know. One other note of concern that does manifest itself in The Fountain is Aronofsky's tasteless Spanish timeline. The utilization of Isabella I as a good character was a terrible choice, given the clear historical knowledge of her awful behavior in actually starting the Spanish Inquisition, not fighting it. Why Aronofsky chose that character when he could have easily made his own history is beyond me. Paired with his literally medieval portrayal of Central American indigenous people, this aspect of The Fountain is more than a little cringe-worthy and is clearly something to avoid in a bold film about humanity such as this one. Aronofsky would be wise to note his peer's choices in this matter and should maybe think about taking some direction from better directors like Scott, Nolan, Kubrick and Coppola, whom he clearly admires. Nevertheless, The Fountain is still a pretty compelling film and worth the watch, especially considering the relatively short run time, a really good decision by Aronofsky.

(ru) wrote: As far as first screenplays go, the Wachowski Brothers hit it big time with this one. This movie is very entertaining and has appropriate amount of action and suspense. The action sequences are great and the interactions between Stallone and Banderas excellent. If you're a fan of action films, this one is definitely worth a watch.
(ag) wrote: Less than the sum of its parts. The sort of film that would try and make a lame double entendre out of the word 'parts' when there really isn't one to be had. Jim Dale, Leslie Phillips, June Whitfield are all wonderful but most of the others just aren't trying. Poor Sarah Crowe tries very hard indeed but just doesn't make it. And strangley, Alexei Sayle seems to work. But the script doesn't. Proof that Peter Richardson should shelve Carry On London permanently and spare digging up the corpse again.
