Midnight Cowboy (1969)
a masterpiece of cinema
First I would like to say how great this. It is astounding and sometimes shocking. And to say the least I'm 11 years old and this is my favorite movie, I can definitely stand a boring film, but this is anything but boring. It is like a trip through humanity. Its stark realism shows through this monumental masterpiece. It is a heart wrenching tale of two down and outers (VOIGHT AND Hoffman) who build a mutual friendship. Joe Buck (VOIGHT) a naive Texan stud comes to New York to make it rich by entertaining women. Soon he meets Rico 'RATSO' Rizzo (HOFFMAN), who is a poor man barely being able to pay rent. Ratso becomes Joe's 'manager' but soon both men can't find Joe a job which results in stealing food. As they try and survive on the streets of New York we realize how tough it is. They can't get Joe a girl until they meet a lady at a party. Joe makes some money and soon Joe takes Ratso on a Ratso's dream spot, Florida. The final five minutes are heart breaking yet some of the greatest moments in the film. From MIDNIGHT COWBOY we get a stark and sometimes disturbing urban view on life.
CBS Schoolbreak Special: Gangs (1988)
the film "gangs" was pretty good. i saw today 11/18/05 in my d.a.r.e. class. it was really good. the story revolves around a man who just returned from the army. he was a gang member and was sentenced to either go to prison or fight for America, he chose fight for America. he comes back from the battlefield to attend a funeral for his father who recently died. he returns to find his 14 year old brother in a gang. now he tries to get his brother out while he still can. the film features a few fight scenes, the one where they try and beat up a kid who's brother was a gang member, though, was corny. the film definitely looks like it was shot like scarface (1983). overall i give it eight stars.
