The Tuskegee Airmen are probably the most famous group of people that overcame racism and prejudice in the Second World War. Being black prohibited them to fight for their country in a big way. They were forced into menial tasks while the white pilots were given the big missions. However, through persistence they were eventually given the opportunity to fight. They were given new planes, to which the tails were painted red. They were known as the “Red Tails.”
Filmmaker Georges Méliès revolutionized cinema in the late 1800’s using a variety of special effects to illuminate the screen. His illusions mesmerized audiences across Europe and now with the release of Hugo, Méliès is not soon to be forgotten.
It's 1960 and the problems that journalists are facing today aren't much different than the ones they faced over a half a century ago. Set in Puerto Rico, and filmed there to give the piece its real feel, Paul Kemp, who is the unmatched star of the film, works for the San Juan Star. It's a dying publication.
This film is the most terrifying one yet and most will leave the theater sweating bullets. The activity in this film is by far the most evil and its presence is known from the get go.
Any time that a director can take such a ridiculous idea, such as fighting robots in the year 2020, and make it believable, it's worth seeing. It's a testament to both the directing and acting that this film wasn't completely cheesy.
50/50 is not what the studio says it is. It's not about two friends making light of a dark situation, it's much more than that. This film tells the story of a relatable character living with a disease rather than dying from it.
