Re: “One: A Story of Love and Equality

This is a really great effort to capture the views of the equality of love and marriage in the LGBTQ community. I have to commend Becca and Melina for a well put together film to capture the views for ammendment one.. It is obvious they spent a lot of time and effort even when they knew it was a battle just to speak to the community who were for the ammendment.

This is definitely well created and a must see.

Re: “Blackfish

This is an important and poignant documentary about the abuse of highly intelligent creatures, and it is a film that shows that Seaworld does not care about human’s or other animal’s life -- Seaworld only care about making money. Blackfish is deeply moving and a must-see.

Re: “The Descendants

Well done film all around. Clooney does a good job playing Hawaiian, and the tough crux moments of the film are well scripted, directed and acted. We get a good sense of Matt (Clooney) as a man who doesn't know what he will do with impossible questions until the moments come, and at each turn he follows the core of who he is and discovers a bit about himself. One is left with hope that through all the trials he may finally have discovered who he really is and be ready to be a real father to his daughters who previously were enigmas to him.

Re: “What On Earth? Inside The Crop Circle Mystery

This is the review from the New York Times:

April 21, 2011

“What On Earth?’ Probes Mysteries of Crop Circles

By JEANNETTE CATSOULIS

A cheery, chummy documentary about the pastoral patterns inaccurately described as crop circles, Suzanne Taylor’s “What On Earth?” musters a gaggle of enthusiasts to dish on the phenomenon.

They’re a diverse bunch — farmers and philosophers, scientists and a singer-songwriter — and Ms. Taylor, a former actress who first became involved with the group in the early 1990s, uses her familiarity to encourage them to open up. Merging homey interviews with photographs and film of the hundreds of varieties of patterns (which pop up mysteriously overnight and are found all over the world), the film makes no pretense of objectivity or analysis. Everyone on screen — most sporting little blue flowers in their lapels, like a club insignia — is convinced of an intelligence behind the designs.

“I knew that something beyond the beyond was going on,” one interviewee says, echoing the metaphysical beliefs of many circle fans. But it’s the film’s geometrists who enthrall most, revealing that many of the shapes — one of which famously made the cover of a 1990 Led Zeppelin album — hold entirely new answers to Euclidean problems.

Set mainly in the bucolic beauty of Wiltshire, England (a hotbed of circle activity), “What On Earth?” touches on famous hoaxes and enjoys a brief visit to the conspiracy-theory place.

The film’s main attractions, though, are the patterns themselves: fantastically precise whorls and curlicues, radiolaria and mandalas that drift across the screen like the endlessly reforming crystals in a kaleidoscope. Whether designed by nature or by little green men, they make you want to believe.

Re: “Dhobi Ghat (Mumbai Diaries)

This is a lovely, quiet movie, almost meditative at times. I am reminded of sections of _Akira Kurosawa's _Dreams_, in which space is purposely left for viewers to think, and we become guided co-creators of the narrative. I saw it two weeks ago, and I am fighting the urge to see it again. When it is out on DVD, I will certainly buy a copy.

The close-up shots of the characters and the city, which are numerous, are fine reminders of what Atticus Finch said in _To Kill a Mockingbird_ about looking into people, not just looking at them. WOW.

Of course, the close-ups would not have meant a thing without character development and fine acting; combined, they work beautifully. During the credits, I heard a group of young desi men comparing it with _Crash_, in that a number of people from different classes and cultural groups keep coming in contact with each other, but it was (with one exception) not violent crashing in my view so much as a gentle Brownian motion.

It reminds me of a line I read in _Birdy_ by William Wharton. "Before you know it, if you're not careful, you can get to feeling for everybody and there's no one left to hate."

Re: “The Jailhouse

I heard this film is very entertaining and the best performance C Thomas Howell has had in years.

Re: “The Jailhouse

A great thriller starring C. Thomas Howell ('The Outsiders', 'Red Dawn', 'The Hitcher'). Very much like 'The Shining' which is refreshing considering all the torture/zombie/vampire movies out there.

Re: “An Inconvenient Tax

I saw the movie at the Carry Galaxy Cinema and really thought it was a must see! The movie was powerful with insight into the history of the American Tax Code and as boring as I thought the topic could be the movie kept me entertained the entire time. The humor was unexpected from the trailer and made me feel like a lot of thought went into making a movie about taxes more interesting. While it did not go as deep into the issues for reform it still got me a taste of the ideas that are out there and fired me up enough to speak more intelligently about taxes and the idea of a true tax reform. I highly recommend this movie and don't think it matters if you're red, blue or associate with no color. The movie was a powerful ride that every American should have an opportunity to see!
