Haha yeah I never did quite understand why they toasted the US military either maybe there was a little bit to much booze in Egg Chens Six Demon bag, that would be great if it was based on actual events I always wondered why the 3 Storms decided on those massive hats
The Island President is an inspirational journey about how the president of Maldives tried to convince the world to reduce carbon emissions in the 2012 Copenhagen Environmental summit. His alternative was to see his island nation be submerged by the effects of global warming. While the Maldives are far away in the Indian Ocean, sea levels rising affects major cities all over the world. It's a story of climate change, international politics, and fighting despite the odds.
Great documentary about what went on in the Pruitt-Igoe projects. The story revealed many of the policy flaws and lack of long-term planning involved in the enormous buildings. I read about them in urban planning school, but it's nice to see them up close in video.
Feels like a prequel more than a sequel. Great cinematography and a well-developed villain makes this movie a stand-out amongst a year of lousy action films. The aging Bond makes you wonder how many Daniel Craig performances will we see as the iconic character.
A very emotional documentary about two inner city boys trying to reach their dreams of playing for the NBA. Watching it 20 years after it was released, for the first time, I feel that the story is still relevant today. Watching their neighborhood, their schools, and their dreams made me feel how deep the inequities in America was in the 1980's. The movie is a long ride, but something to cheer about in the end.
