Leading to War (2008)
An important historical document
When the airplanes struck the Twin Towers, I was 15 years old. I don't know if it's because of growing older myself, or because of that single date that the whole world seemed to have changed drastically. Not too long a go I realized that people that are younger than I am (now up to 21) probably remember 'the world' before 9/11 not as vividly anymore, instead the cold world of fear since 2001 and its politics are all they know. Watching this documentary I'm still angry that my parents, the media, the politicians and actually everyone else with a sound mind let things get this far out of hand. The patriot act, Afghanistan and Iraq. I know for sure that in a decade we will look back and finally we will dare to say out loud that we were mislead and manipulated by Bush's administration. A historical document like this film is therefor of great importance so that my parents won't forget the global crimes that have been committed in their time and that my generation will know this time is an ugly time which hopefully we can make better real soon again. It doesn't have to be this way.
Virgin Territory (2007)
Finally, a decent swashbuckler (but very simple)
As a big fan of classic swashbucklers i wasn't expecting much of this movie and because of that I liked it very much. It's very low budget, but has some decent sword fights. Besides that its filled with beautiful women (actually beautiful) and yes, quite some nudity. But in a non-offensive and quite charming way. Mischa Barton is looking great as a historical figure (better than perfect-teeth Keira Knightley in PotC, P&P) and Hayden is quite good with his sword and a better swashbuckling hero than for example Heith Ledger in Casanova or Orlando Bloom. the movie is just great fun. its highly entertaining with the simple stuff: swords and love. i enjoyed it a lot. Actually the first entertaining swashbuckler of the 21st century.
