A Little Masterpiece, 23 February 2011
10/10

This is not actually masterpiece,but still a rare short movie. only movie where we see Jimmie Rodgers alive.Jimmie was railroad man himself and movie is filmed in "Railroad Eating House". Jimmie Rodgers - the father of country music,Americans blue yodeler, the singing brakeman.He sang three songs and he got one cup of coffee for this.first song "Waiting For A Train"Jimmie actually worked a short brakeman,In 1911, he went to work as a brakeman but had to cut his railroading career short because of contracting consumption in 1924.Second song is "Daddy And Home"One old lady ask for Jimmie do you miss your old dad?Jimmie:yes of course.His Fathers Name was Aaron and the last song is Blue Yodel - his landmark.Lucky old ladies,they saw Jimmie alive and live what a treasure day. Jimmie wears in this movie his work shirt,a bandanna,and a railroad hat.This is movie is old yes,but we should never who was Jimmie Rodgers,without him there would be no Hank Williams, Johnny Cash,Chuck Berry,Beatles,Elvis Presley.he was a true king of music.he died 26 May 1933 - he was 35 years old only.a arrant fan of Jimmie.Lembit.

Like a modern Carrie - Not overrated, 4 October 2009
7/10

Jennifers Body is a 2009 dark comedy and a horror film written by Diablo Cody.The film is directed by Karyn Kusama and stars Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Adam Brody and Johnny Simmons. Fox portrays Jennifer Check, a newly possessed teenage serial killer specializing in "offing" her male classmates as best friend "Needy" Lesnicki, portrayed by Seyfried, strives to stop her.The title is a reference to a song from Hole's album Live Through This.Another song from the album, "Violet", is played over the end credits.As a tie-in to the film,Boom.A good film i must acknowledge.Forest scene where Jennifer killed a guy and animals came to watch before killing was really weird. But i must say that Amanda Seyfried is better actress than Megan Fox.Megan is hot but she is not a high class actress like Sofia Loren or Elizabeth Taylor.But she is not overrated.she's watchable. Soundtrack was very good is my opinion.It's is based on novel. I recommend it to Amanda Seyfried and for Megan Fox fans.it's OK.the ending was very interesting.

My Favorite Musical, 9 July 2009
9/10

The film is one of two major Hollywood musicals produced in 1943 with primarily African-American casts, the other being MGM's Cabin in the Sky, and is considered a time capsule showcasing some of the top African-American performers of the time, during an era when black actors and singers rarely appeared in lead roles in mainstream Hollywood productions, particularly of the musical genre. This movie is timeless.Fats Waller,Lena Horne,Bill Robison and Cab Calloway - stunning stars.Lena Horne(Celina)was a cute and beautiful in this,it is sad it's not a color movie because in color she is probably more beautiful.Songs "Stormy Weather" By Celina(Lena Horne)"Ain't Misbehavin" & "That ain't right" By Fats Waller are classics and the funny Bill Robison.I personally don't like Cab Calloway but he was talented too i guess.Lena Horne was same hot as Marilyn Monroe when was so young.Waller is my favorite.

But he can't do anything to his 6 brutal friends,when they see that he don't hate the blacks anymore and he respect them,it was disgusting scene,when they hit him on the wall and one guy his dick into his ass.i didn't liked this scene.Dereks tattoos were interesting. But when Derek's get out from jail,he wants to his brother too. But his brother and girlfriend and friend are racist against to the blacks.he almost can,but Danny don't understand everything, finally he understand that Hate is dangerous thing,but end is sad.Watch yourself this movie.You'll be mad to don't watch it. Norton is the man.Tony Kaye - the director of this movie is the man too.Norton is maybe not superstar like Megan Fox(Yeah Megan Fox is very cute and sexy)but she is not a very good actress.Norton is and deserve respect that he can really act.

"Charmed" (1998)

Best Ever., 22 April 2009
10/10

Charmed is an American television series that originally aired from 1998 until 2006, when its network, The WB, ceased operation.The series was created in 1998 by writer Constance M. Burge and was produced by Aaron Spelling and his Spelling Television company, with the show runner being writer-director Brad Kern. The series narrative follows the four Halliwell sisters, Prue, Piper, Phoebe and, later, Paige, the culmination of the long Warren line of powerful, good witches. The sisters, despite being perceived as normal by the non-supernatural community, are known as The Charmed Ones, whose prophesied destiny is to battle against evil beings, such as demons and warlocks, in order to protect innocent lives from being endangered. Each sister possesses unique magical powers that grow and evolve, whilst they also attempt to hold normal working lives in San Francisco. Keeping their paranormal identities separate and secret from their ordinary lives forms part of the series' tension and challenges, with the exposure of magic having far-reaching consequences on relationships and has resulted in a number of police and FBI investigations throughout the series.This is my favorite show of all time.i loved it from my heart.i can't pick my favorite episode all were good. but i actually prefer these episodes where Prue was i loved her more than Paige.But Paige so damn cool too she was so perky and funny and sexier,but Prues acting was better And Of Course i loved Cole and baltazar too.Chris was interesting person. Miss this show so much.8 years a pure classic.

A Cult Classic, 9 July 2008
9/10

This is a classic a total art in pop culture.Three thrill-seeking go-go dancers — Billie (Lori Williams), Rosie (Haji), and their leader, Varla (Tura Satana)are criminals(Billie not so much)they have a drag racing in desert and Varla kill one man and they kidnapped his girlfriend and hide herself all in one rancho and there meet one old-man and his two son's one is ordinary man,but other is stupid bodybuilder who afraid trains.Varla is very aggressive,draconian and felonious.I didn't liked this character,but all characters were without a doubt charismatics and Varla evil too that she killed Billie and made much hurt to vegetable.in the end Varla appears to win the fight and is about to kill Kirk. Linda gets into the truck and runs over Varla, killing her, leaving Kirk and Linda as the only survivors but this is brilliant is one of the greatest movies ever produced and this rating 6.6/10 is wrong.should in the at least 7.5/10. actors were good too few actors still a good work and director Russ Meyer pretty good too i guess.I'm waiting a remake from Quentin Tarantino were a beautiful porn star Tera Patrick is going to play a Varla.this gonna the hottest remake ever.hope it's gonna be complete soon.

Renegade (2004)

Blueberry (Blueberry: L'experience secrete) is a French movie adaptation of the popular Franco-Belgian comic book series Blueberry, illustrated by Jean Giraud (better known as Moebius) and scripted by Jean-Michel Charlier. It very loosely based on the comic (so much so that the late Charlier's family disowned the film) and adds in mystical and shamanic elements not present in the source material of interest to the movie's director, Jan Kounen. The film starred the French star Vincent Cassel as the title character along with Michael Madsen and Juliette Lewis. Although the film is a French production, the language of the film is in English because the story is set in America's Wild West in the 1870s. Since the character of Blueberry remains obscure in the States, the film was released on DVD in America in November 2004 under the title Renegade and marketed very much as a conventional Western.Ayahuasca contains Dimethaltryptamine (DMT) which is a powerful hallucinogenic compound that we produce naturally in our sleep.OK i haven't seen the whole movie,but i must say landscape of Mexico is brilliant and ayahuasca scene is my favorite it's hallucinogenic scene.i personally haven't try ed ayahuasca,but i have try ed:Weed,Ecstasy,Poppers,Salvia and Peyote(this peyote didn't worked i don't know why but it was peyote)

Title is lame but movie was good, 30 June 2008
7/10

this movie is actually underrated.Last Action Hero is a 1993 action comedy directed by John McTiernan. The film is a satire of the action. The film tells the story of Danny, a young boy who likes action movies, particularly those featuring action hero Jack Slater. It is established within the film that Slater is portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who plays himself as well as portraying Slater. Thanks to a "magic ticket",the lines between reality and the movie world blur as Danny is catapulted into Jack Slater IV.The Hamlet scene was strange but still very clever and funny.i love the end scene with the boss when Jack Slater(Arnold Schwarzenegger)hits his boss window glass broke and says his boss says you buy it twice.his boss were before his dictator,but he says go to hell sucker.mostly boss's are like these idiots.

Normal, 28 May 2008
6/10

Around the World in 80 Days is a 2004 comedy/adventure film based on Jules Verne's novel, Around the World in 80 Days. It stars Jackie Chan, Steve Coogan and Cecile De France.

The film is set in 19th-century England and centers on Phileas Fogg (Steve Coogan), here re imagined as an eccentric inventor, and his efforts to circumnavigate the globe in 80 days. During the trip he is accompanied by his Chinese valet Passepartout (Jackie Chan). For comedic reasons, the film intentionally deviated wildly from the novel and included a number of anachronistic elements.

Despite boasting of several big stars and containing many celebrity cameos, the film was a box office bomb and ended up generating a huge loss for the studio.

The film starts with a man (later known to be Lau Xing played by Jackie Chan), robbing and escaping from the Bank of England. To escape from the police, he observes from a window, two police officers searching for him asking an Oriental man in the street for his identification, and says "Passport...too", he becomes, under the name "Passepartout" (pronounced Pass-par-too), a valet to Phileas Fogg (Steve Coogan), a scientist trying to break the 50-mph speed barrier. After succeeding to do so, and managing to avoid the police, they head to the Royal Academy of Science. Here Fogg is insulted by other 'brilliant minds', in particular the bombastic Lord Kelvin (Jim Broadbent), who believes that everything worth discovering had already been discovered and there is no need for further progress. The bank robbery is also discussed. In his blind rage, Fogg says that he's glad the bank was robbed because it is outdated and says that the thief could be in China in little over a month, which interests Lau Xing. Fogg places a bet to see if it would be possible (as his calculations said) to travel around the world in 80 days. If he won, he would become Minister of Science in Lord Kelvin's place; if not, he would tear down his lab and never invent anything again.

Passepartout and Phileas retreat to Phileas's home, where he mourns on his rash decision; yet Passepartout said that to bet on something he believed in made the bet in no way foolish. Without losing a moment, they take a carriage and leave London, after crossing with Inspector Fix (Ewen Bremner), a corrupt officer who was hired to stop them from traveling around the world.

Fats Waller is the greatest jazz pianist ever with art Tatum, 28 April 2008
8/10

He was an excellent and much copied jazz pianist—now considered one of the very best who ever played in the stride style. He also had a touch that varied from subtle and extremely light to very powerful. He was a master of dynamics and tension and release. But it was his singing, songwriting, and his lovable, roguish stage personality that sold his hundreds of recordings for RCA Victor, in a day when much of society did not recognize jazz as "serious" music. He played with many performers, from Gene Austin to Erskine Tate to Adelaide Hall, but his greatest success came with his own five- or six-piece combo, "Fats Waller and his Rhythm". Fats Waller was such an impressive and talented pianist that he came to the attention of the rich and famous—- sometimes whether he wanted to or not. Fats Waller was in Chicago in 1926 and, upon leaving the building where he was performing, Waller was kidnapped by four men, who bundled him into a car and drove off. The car later pulled up outside the Hawthorne Inn, owned by infamous gangster Al Capone. Fats was ordered inside the building, to find a party in full swing. With a gun against his back, Waller was pushed towards a piano, whereupon the gangsters demanded he start playing. A terrified Waller suddenly realized he was the "surprise guest" at Al Capone's birthday party. Soon comforted by the fact that he wouldn't die, Waller played, according to rumor, for three days. When he left the Hawthorne Inn, he was very drunk, extremely tired, and had earned thousands of dollars in cash given to him by Capone himself and by party-goers as tips.[3] Among his songs are "Squeeze Me" (1919), "Keepin' Out of Mischief Now", "Ain't Misbehavin'" (1929), "Blue Turning Grey Over You", "I've Got a Feeling I'm Falling" (1929), "Honeysuckle Rose" (1929), and "Jitterbug Waltz" (1930). He collaborated successfully with the Tin Pan Alley lyricist Andy Razaf for a number of years. Waller also composed stride piano display pieces such as "Handful of Keys", "Valentine Stomp" and "Viper's Drag." His songs have become standards of the jazz repertoire.

Waller made a successful tour of the British Isles in the late 1930s, and appeared in one of the earliest BBC Television broadcasts. While in Britain, Waller also recorded a number of songs for EMI on their Compton Theatre organ located in their Studios in St John's Wood, London. He appeared in several feature films and short subject films, most notably "Stormy Weather" in 1943, which was released only months before his death.

For his hit Broadway show, "Hot Chocolates", with Razaf he wrote "What Did I Do (To Be So Black and Blue)?" (1929) which became a hit for Louis Armstrong. This song, a searing treatment of racism, black and white, calls into question the early accusations of "shallow entertainment" ignorantly leveled at both Armstrong and Waller.

Waller could read and write music well (from his classical keyboard studies) and would even, on occasion, perform organ works of Bach for small groups. He left his stamp on many per-bop jazz pianists. Count Basie and Erroll Garner, for example, would have sounded very different absent the Waller sound. Today, Dick Hyman, Mike Lipskin, Louis Mazatier and other jazz pianists perform in the Waller idiom. Although the stride style, like all jazz, must be learned primarily by ear, many scholars have transcribed his brilliant improvisations from old recordings and radio broadcasts, in sheet music form. The pianist and keyboard professor Paul Posnak produced transcriptions of 16 of Waller's greatest solos, published by Hal Leonard, which Posnak uses in concerts worldwide.Fats Waller is the greatest if i can someday use a time machine then i would like to meet him.
