Class of 1999 (1990)
Robot teachers vs students what's not to love.
Class of 1999 is a type of futuristic movie about what schools will eventually come to, it's funny has interesting characters and great antagonists.
The plot is set in the future where the schools in america have been taken over by gangs and the government who are at a loss decide that robotic teachers are the answer. Meanwhile just out of prison Cody Culp (Bradley Gregg) has renounced his gang with which his two brothers are a part of. When the teachers turn dangerous Cody gets suspicious and decides to investigate. To say the least the end is all out war.
Pam Grier, Patrick Kilpatrick and John P Ryan play the teachers gone wrong. Also a good if yet short performance from Malcolm Mcdowell and Stacy Keach as Dr. Bob Forrest.
Almost Famous (2000)
There's something in the air.
This is one of my favourite musical films.
A 15 year old boy William miller (patrick fugit) who comes from a rather strict home, wants to be a writer and when rolling stone sends him to interview bands he meets up with some amazing free spirited characters who whisk him up and take him on tour. This is another story were it isn't about the story and is more about the characters and the journey.
Patrick fugit is amazing as william an impressionable young boy who is flung in to this world of free love, music, sayings and nicknames on a tour that you wish will never end.
Frances Mcdorman is so funny as williams strict mother who is a teacher and proclaims to her class rockstars have kidnapped my son before running out the room. And also a great performance from Zooey Deschanel as williams sister Anita.
Billy Crudup, Jason lee are part of the band stillwater who are the up and coming rock band on the brink of stardom but as they get closer the fractures in their band start to appear and rivalries become apparent.
Noah Taylor as Dick the bands manager is also funny .He has been with them since the beginning. Also got to mention Jimmy Fallon for his character who takes over the band from Dick.
Now my favourite characters are the band aides; Kate Hudson as miss Penny Lane the funniest, free spirited groupie, she fell in love with music and never went home. Anna Paquin as Polexia Aphrodisia is a sort of mysterious character we really don't find much about her but i am drawn to her. Fairuza Balk as the mother figure for the band aides sapphire and bijou phillips as Estrella Starr.
Also great performance from Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
What's your favourite scary movie?
Scream was one of the first horror movies i saw and is still in my top ten best horror movies, it still holds up and basically gave an adrenaline shot in to the heart of horror.
The story follows Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) who's mother almost a year ago got murdered. Sidney testified that Cotton Weary raped her mother then killed her and he is sent to jail for it. Suddenly murders start and has sidney questioning her sanity did she put the wrong person away?
The film has a mix of fun and red herring characters and at times you forget your watching a horror and just enjoy the conversations of the characters.
Courtney Cox plays news reporter Gale Weathers a women who is always looking for an angle for the story, a real bitchy character and yet when she gets with Dewey your heart melts. Deputy Dewey Riley is the sweetest character in the movie a lot of the kids are really savvy but he's an adult and yet is probably the most innocent man. Neve Campbell as sidney is a great horror heroine. Rose Mcgowan Plays Tatum Dewey's little sister is feisty carefree teenager. Jamie Kennedy as Randy the ultimate movie geek in the best way possible. i will say no more this is a funny yet scary movie that will have you guessing right until the end.
Rain Man (1988)
An emotional ride.
This movie starts with charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise) discovering that his father has died. Charlie and his father haven't spoken in years and he is emotionless about the funeral. Expecting to inherit his fathers wealthy estate, he is shocked to learn he is only getting the Buick convertible that was the reason for them falling out, and 3 million dollars is going in to a trust fund for an unknown trustee.
Charlie angered at this decides to find out who it is and he does. He makes a visit to Wall brook where he discovers Raymond (Dustin Hoffman) an autistic man a lot older than charlie, who turns out to be his brother.
Shocked and confused charlie at first wonders why was he kept a secret, but that quickly turns to greed as he decides to kidnap Raymond and hold him ransom for his share of the 3 million because as charlie puts it Raymond has no concept of money.
Along the way charlie realises something he has missed and that money can't replace family.
Tom cruise brilliantly portrays Charlie Babbitt a character who is filled with anger, greed, selfishness and yet he also turns the character slowly around as all those emotions slowly fade away as he discovers he's a brother and though the youngest he feels protective of Raymond, charlie is at first is annoyed that Raymond needs to do things at a certain time, then defends him when others don't understand.
Dustin Hoffman is exceptional as Raymond compelling and sweet who doesn't understand he's been kidnapped. The realtionship of Raymond and Charlie is what makes the film work.
Valeria Golino plays charlies girlfriend susanna, she brings a real sense of grounded truth to charlie even leaving him at one point out of disgust for his attititude early on towards his brother. Though she returns toward the end sharing a sweet moment with Raymond in the lift. I highly recommend.
