A gloomy and depressing view on a society


"They all will have to lose something. If not you are a traitor."

"The White King" takes place in a future society. Has there been a worldwide, destructive war? A deadly epidemic? Or did a world state succeed in shutting down global communication, after which they could conquer all the on high-tech depending countries by using conventional warfare? And after this invasion, did they install a totalitarian regime? You won't get any real answers to these questions. It looks ...

A Delight to the Senses


If Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets taught me anything, it is that Luc Besson is not afraid to take chances, and that he continues to be one of the most creative directors today. Billed as the most expensive independent film, and based on a French comic, Valerian follows a pair of intergalactic super agents (titular character Valerian and his female better half Laureline) as they attempt to save Alpha (also known as the City of a Thousand Planets) from a dark force that threatens the...

Witty and well written social satire based around a high school election for class president. Think Heathers without homicide!

An entertaining and engrossing high school comedy like only Alexander Payne could make. The characters are nuanced and the comedy dark and often savage. All the main cast are playing against type, which is refreshing to see.

Election review


Had a unique premise in a dark comedy sort of way. Rarely can you see Reese Witherspoon as the antagonist on screen, Tracy Flick was really evil in a naughty way. Matthew Broderick does a good job as well as the immoral teacher trying to make things right in the school. Good performances all throughout with some really funny scenes. Entertaining, surprising and full of morale lessons from the flawed figures. Election definitely get's my vote.

A dark (almost black) comedy set in high school. I found it to be very funny and smart. Some may find parts of it to be mean spirited, but the tone works for this particular story.

Election


Tracy Flick will always be one of those film characters that you will love and hate because people like her do exist. They're irritating yet you can't help but admire them for their willingness to be the best. I guess there's a Tracy Flick in all of us. At times, when placed in dire situations that can make or break our futures, we are willing to sabotage, lie, and cheat in order to win. It's what makes us human--survival of the fittest. This is an edgy, witty satire in so many levels--high sch...

Naughty Teachers and Students???


I hated this movie, yet it still had its moments. Matthew Broderick isn't too bad. I would say Skip this Flick instead of Pick Flick, but that's just me. Alexander Payne has much better movies (try Sideways) and so does Reese Witherspoon (try Legally Blonde).

I never was a Reese Witherspoon fan much, but I really enjoy Matthew Broderick as the ultimate anti-Ferris Bueller. The plot is simple, yet manages to hold your attention. It gets too snarky for its own good, but otherwise is well-made.

movie shot in familiar location


This movie wasn't too bad, but not one of my favorites. I really wanted to see it because it was shot in Omaha and I wanted to what scenes were familar to me in the movie. It was fun to see many things I recognized and many places that I had been.
