    As I'm sure that some of you are aware, our dear director John Hughes has decided to vacate his seat in this dimension last week.
    But I think we can agree, to some point, that he made some quality film,
    and that 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' is one of those classics.

    (another one)

    Finding Forrester- an African-American high school boy, Jamal, from a low down ghetto neighbourhood, who plays basketball as a cover-up around his friends while his real passion lies in writing fiction, poetry, and short stories in his notebook comes across an old hermit-like man (played by Sean Connery) when his friends dare him to steal something from the old man's apartment to prove his bravery, accidentally leaving his backpack behind. Jamal is forced to go back for it, and finds editing notes scribbled over everything in his journals, telling him what to improve, or giving him compliments on the well-written parts. Curiosity gets the better of Jamal, and he ends up repeatedly returning to the old man, who Jamal discovers is the secluded ex-author, William Forrester. Jamal's prinicple and mother both decide to send him to a private school, to better fuel his potential, and obviously he is discriminated laregely as most of the students are high-class caucasians, and is largely opressed by an arrogant, self-centred teacher who himself is a large fan of William Forerester, and infactassings his students a research project to discover why the man never wrote more then one book. This film is brilliant, really worth a watch.

    Le Roi De Coeur (The King of Hearts)
    It's a french movie with english subtitles set in france near the end of World War I. The German soldiers manage to come just short of destroying a small town, causing all the citizens to flee, leaving only one scottish soldier and an insane asylum that he unknowingly leaves the door open to- allowing all the patients to escape and take over the town themselves. You grow to relate to the insane people, as you watch them do what they can with their freedom, sort of in the way a young child plays out what they want to be when they 'grow up'. The film ends leaving the audience with a question: who's less sane, the soldiers in wars blowing up everyone and themselves, putting everything in risk to fight; or the psychiatric patients?

    Heathers
    a dark comedy, think Mean Girls, but better. Much better. Christian Slater and Winona Ryder go on a homocide-suicide scheme on the popular girls in school, all named Heather (ever seen the cartoon Recess with the girls named Ashley? they're pretty much exactly like that) Christian's character, J.D, is a tough quiet guy you don't want to mess with, who not only attracts, but confuses and persuades Winona's character, Veronica, to kill off each of the Heathers who have caused her trouble in life by 'accident' (on Veronica's part anyway) and keep fixing it up by making it look like suicide, The most interesting part of the film: when the cool kids have all reportedly 'killed themselves' and suicide becomes the hot trend in the local high school.

    Home Room
    a well acted drama that begins with a school shooting that kills 9 students and seriously injures one, Deanna. The shooter is dead, shot by police, and the only witness (and possible partner in crime) is goth student, Alicia, who is now being closely watched by a detective played by Victor Garber. With school being closed, Alicia is ordered by the principle to visit Deanna in the hospital for a limited time period every day- emphasising the difference between the darkly dressed girl raised in a one parent household, shunning the society that equally shuns her; and Deanna, a spoiled, wealthy, popular cheery girl lying in a hospital bed. Thoughts and feelings are explored, with high tension revolving around the school shooting and the detectives trying to get Deanna to pry information (without luck) out of Alicia. The best scene comes at the end when a small group of students return to the school months later and Alicia's secrets are revealed with superb acting all around, a very under-rated film.

    Every one should definately watch Montgomery Clift in THE YOUNG LIONS, also starring Marlon Brando and Dean Martin. Though I'm a huge fan of all three men, Monty's perfromance is the most profound. I love them moment when he's winning the fight with guys from his army company and he's telling this big guy, 'DON'T FALL! DON'T FALL! ' I don't know why, but it just makes you want to burst into tears. After all that adversity from being Jewish and small, he becomes the victor. I guess it's just the fact that the little guy won for once.

    my favorite movie of all times would have to be Antoine fisher because he is a marine with a hurtful past that leaves him with a temper. he is willing to show emotions and is willing to do what ever it take to change.he has a good heart.As he lets goes of his past he finds value in new people and new things around him.there is a lot of poetry in this movie.I can relate to movies and t.v. that is why I agree with watching it. It helps me and inspires me in many ways.
