The return of fps russia Time

The return of fps russia

Time passes until we re eventually introduced to Sophia Oprah Winfrey who is marrying Mister s oldest son Harpo Willard Pugh. Winfrey is fantastic a strong-willed woman who refuses to deal with Harpo falling into the same behavior as his father and ends up leaving him. As this family epic unfolds, so does much more grief and sadness. This story truly is a tragic one, and while there are moments of triumph and happiness, they are few and far between. Goldberg and Winfrey both make you feel their pain and it makes you hate Glover s character that much more. Of course, this much troubling drama can take its toll on you after two and a half hours, and while the performances are captivating, it doesn t stop the third act of the film from dragging a little too long. By that point, there s been so much strife that you just want it all to end, so that may be the culprit here. However, it doesn t stop the film from standing the test of time 25 years later and delivering a tough, historical family drama that will bring a year to your eye. If you re already in possession of the two-disc special edition DVD release, you won t find any new special features on this Blu-Ray release. But the case for the film itself does feature a 40-page hardback book full of photos, biographies of the cast and crew, some trivia, and background information on the novel on which the film is based. Conversations with Ancestors: The Color Purple from Book to Screen This featurette goes behind the scenes of the film, but mostly deals with the adaptation of the book, some background on the novel and contains mostly interviews with Spielberg and author Alice Walker who really have some great insights into how the film came together. A Collaboration of Spirits: Casting and Acting The Color Purple As if it needs a description, this special feature has extended conversations with the case of the film, including Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey, both unproven actresses at the time who talk openly about the controversial story and more powerful scenes in the film. Cultivating a Classic: The Making of The Color Purple This featurette delves into the actual production of the film more than the other features as we see various aspects of filmmaking from the set design, to costume design and a spectacular focus on the cinematography. The Color Purple : The Musical The shortest of the special features, this is merely a brief talk with Quincy Jones who crafted the music for Spielberg s drama. Still Galleries Two sets of photos chronicling both the production and the cast. Nothing too special here. THE FINAL WORD : Though the Blu-Ray release sadly doesn t include any new supplementary material for the 25th Anniversary release, the 40-page book included as part of the disc packaging is a nice treat. The film has never looked better on this HD Blu-Ray transfer, and if you re a fan of Spielberg s drama and want the best quality presentation possible for your home, then this is worth picking up. Before 1985, director Steven Spielberg had been at the helm of some big sci-fi and adventure films like Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The Extra-Terrestrial, the first two installments of the Indiana Jones franchise and of course the underwater thriller Jaws. So it comes as a bit of a surprised that the filmmaker ended up delivering a powerful historical drama in the form of The Color Purple. And it s even more mystifying that two of the best performances from the film ended up coming from then-unproven actresses Whoopi Goldberg and present-day TV icon Oprah Winfrey. For my take on the 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray release of this stellar period drama, hit the jump. Spike Lee didn t break it big until 1 Around 1985, he was still a smalltime director who hadn t made it to Hollywood yet. Spielberg had been making movies since the 60s. And there are numerous other reasons why, but I won t drag them out here. You need to enable javascript in order to use Simple CAPTCHA. Weve made searching on Moviefone easier.

Theres a bevy of battles on the home entertainment front this week, from sci-fi to horror to comedy. First up the marines battle invincible aliens in the appropriately titled Battle: Los Angeles. Then the townspeople of a small medieval village must battle a werewolf whos hungry for human flesh in Red Riding Hood. And, lastly, the battle of the sexes rears its head in the comedy Hall Pass. Read on. What Its About: Its the day after tomorrow and the Earth is being invaded by seemingly invincible aliens with a superior arsenal of weaponry and equipment that quickly tramples and destroys the worlds great cities. Los Angeles is one of the last strongholds on the West Coast, and the Marines are trying to set up a counterattack to draw a line in the sand against the monstrous Juggernaut. But first, civilians need to be evacuated, and a Marine platoon, headed up by Aaron Eckhart, must skirt enemy territory to rescue some stranded people. Its the grunts against the aliens in the mean streets of What We Say: If you liked the shaky v rit the return of fps russia camerawork of Cloverfield or Skyline youll love this one, which puts you on the ground with the Marines as they fight the return of fps russia one alien after another. But thats pretty much it for this film: Theres no overriding, big picture for the action, just one skirmish after another, one close escape after another, one more dead marine or civilian or alien. Admittedly, the sets of smashed freeways, wrecked vehicles and destroyed buildings are a marvel to behold, but the shapeless, impersonal film keeps you isolated from caring for anyone or even rooting for the humans.
