To Sir With Love Is Wonderful


Sidney Poitier has the role of a new teacher in one of Britain's secondary schools. He is given a class of students who, with maybe one or two exceptions, have reached the end of the academic road and will be leaving school at the end of term. They have no academic future and their future outside of school is not to promising. Bike messengers and shop assistants if they're lucky is what awaits these 15 year olds. (Leaving age in the mid-60s was 15.) The kids can care less about school and are just watching the days roll down until they don't have to attend anymore.
Poitier's charecter quickly realizes that the best thing he can do is get these kids ready for the real world. He junks the syllabus and creates his own plan for these people to meet life with something like survival skills. Instead of maths, science and english, he teaches the world of cooking, politeness and proper grooming. These latter skills will help these kids far more than being able to diagram a sentence.
I first saw this film when it first came out. I think I had a better appreication of it, as an American, becuase I had jsut returned from living in the UK and attending a secondary school, which while not like North Quay, did introduce me to some of the characters portrayed. Guys I knew were facing school leaving with prospects of working as a green grocer's assistant or a boy soldier or seaman in the Forces. So on an intellectual level, I certainly understood what Poitier's character faced. These weren't juvenile delinquents but a real segment of British society that probably still exists today.
This film has just as much validity today as it did when it was first released. The cast is excellent from Poitier down to the kid with no lines but filling a desk. I found this to be a fine film at the time I first saw it and today when I saw it again after a period of several years between viewings. I recommend it to everyone who enjoys British films.

PETER JACKSON IS GOD!!!


Bravo!!! Un-freaking-believable!! Went to the 12:01am premiere lastnight. Probably the greatest movie I have ever seen in my entire life, so tense at moments, so emotional at moments and... (don't read on if you haven't seen it) oh so wonderful to see the shire once again. This is not the end... although I fear it will be a long while, Peter Jackson will pickup where he left off, with Christopher Tolkiens books, as he did his father.

Hilarious.


This movie is very entertaining, mostly because the phoned-in performance of David Yost in the Billy Cranston role is so abysmal. 200 billion stars out of 5.

Delightful Movie From My CHildhood


I RARELY WENT TO MOVIES AS A CHILD BUT I DID SEE MANY OF HAYLEY MILL'S MOVIES AND LIKED ALL OF THEM. I REMEMBER SITTING WITH MY SISTER CANDY IN THE THEATRE AND LOVING SUMMER MAGIC. TO THIS DAY I CAN SING THE SONGS HAYLEY SANG IN THE MOVIE. THIS IS THE KIND OF A YOUNG GIRL MOVIE I WISH THE LITTLE GIRLS IN MY LIFE COULD SEE NOW. IT IS SOFT AND KIND AND GLIDES THROUGH SCENES OF SUMMER THAT MAKE A SOUL SIGH. YOUNG GIRLS ESPECIALLY WILL DELIGHT IN THIS MOVIE AND PERHAPS IT COULD BE A GUIDE FOR MOTHER'S WHO WISH TO ALLOW THEIR DAUGHTERS BE YOUNG AT HEART. YOU WILL WANT TO WATCH IT WITH THEM I AM SURE.

Quads Vol 1:Freak Parade - movie DVD cover picture
Quad's is not everyone's cup of tea but.......


I first saw Quads on a Canadian TV network about a Year ago in Montreal.
I believe the Canadians and the Australians were the only ones with the balls to put this show on.
I thought it was one of the funniest things I had seen on TV in North America.
It will appeal to those of us who appreciate dark humor, being that it is extremely politically incorrect and is sure to offend the majority.
I can never see an American network carrying this due to its nature and the fact that we have become one of the most uptight countries in the world when it comes to what is exceptable humor. Just Look at Mr. Stern going to Satellite.
John Callahan is an extremely funny and talented guy.
I am sure he catches a lot of flack for his work, poking fun at someone in a wheelchair is a risky premise for a show, but it is worth mentioning that in the real world Mr. Callahan is also confined to a wheelchair.
I will be pre-ordering this DVD....

great stuff


This is one of my favorite movies. As a 40 year male with no children I don't think I'll ever be able to get closer to understanding the feeling a mother has about her children than when I watched this moovie. Great ensemble cast. You'll defiantly laugh and cry in this movie. Sarandon and Shepard were great. I don't know the name of any of the children but it included the guy from swing kids and the guy from Mall Rats. The kid that figured out teh alergy situation has been around to and they all do a good job. Lots of realism in Surandans neurosis. There is a great piece of acting by the actress who played the wife of the "swing kids guy" in the kitchen scene with Sarandon. I call it the tequila and meatloaf sceen. That's the best scene in the movie mostly due to some dynamite dialogue. Other great scenes include the scene at the creek, the post dog attack, the fire in the driveway scene, the reporter confrentation, and the morning bunk bed sceen when the young kid says today's the day we'll find out.

Two word describe this movie: AWE and SOME


Although there were alot of bad reviews for this movie i thought it was awesome.As far as the action goes it is jet li at his best. The scene where he is Fighting himself at the conclusion with two different wushu styles was one of the best fight scenes i've ever seen(in an american movie). Critics raved about the Matrix's gravity defying choreography, when Jet Li made it famous with his classics Once Upon A Time In China and Fong Sai Yuk. Jet Li is the man there is no other way to put it.
