Crop And Save
North Country (2005)
Did anyone else notice what a strong resemblance Charlize Therons performance is to Sally Fields role in Norma Rae, in that a seemingly quiet woman rises up to challenge work place adversity? Just like Fields role, this movie is based on a true incident. And it is also very well acted! I bet Frances McDormand will get Best Supporting Actress for this film. Again very well acted! I also hope Theron is also nominated for Best Actress.
Also, why can't IMDb let people post comments of less than 10 lines??? Some people make short comments.Why is that a problem for IMDb???????????????????
The Inkwell (1994)
Remember a few others of this type?
The Inkwell reminds me of two other films about the problems facing African American youths coming of age. They are Cooley High(1976) and Boyz 'N the Hood.
While not as violent ridden as Boyz nor as touching as Cooley High, this film none the less drives home the same point: growing up a teenager is hard enough, being a black teenager can be even more difficult.
I would like to see a film about the challenges facing African American youths growing up in the new century with the same focus and intensity of these three excellent films.
Napoleon Dynamite (2004)
Whether or not you like this film(I personally thought it was ok),2 things are for certain:1 It is the first film in a long time to generate a cult following and 2 There will (almost) certainly be a sequel.
In regards to a sequel, I can only hope MTV Films dosen't screw it up by over-commercializng it,firing all the talented people who worked on the original and thus gave it its' chemistry or fail to get the original cast back for number two.
I think a good story line would be to see Napolean graduate or see what happens with Pedro , Kip or his uncle.
