An excellent solid drama with some hard-hitting performances from Charlie Sheen, William Dafoe and Tom Berenger. It is adventurous and will definitely make you feel like you are out their fighting with these brave men. Set in the Vietnam War, the story is directed and written by Olive Stone wonderfully as he captures this historical war. The acting was superb, and the story was dramatically hard-hitting, and is an excellent adventure to be taken on.
My Rating: 8/10
Benny and Joon (1993)
Here we see a young Johnny Depp in one of his earlier roles and even here, his talent can be seen. Depp performs stunts inherited from Buster Keaton and a few little things from Charlie Chaplin and doe them very well. The film is about the mental state of Joon and Sam, two nutty people who fall in love. The story is not the best but the film as a whole has some nice comedy, great characters an enough to keep you watching.
My Rating: 7/10
Bad Teacher (2011)
"Bad Teacher" really is BAD! To begin with as a comedy it does not create many laughs, and if it does, they are weak ones. Cameron Diaz plays her role bringing nothing much to the character other than some slight charm and doesn't bring many (if any) laughs to the screen. Although, I do not expect much from her. Lots of the characteristion of the film is flat and the few laughs make this film very boring. Justin Timberlake and Jason Segel also star in the film. timberlake is okay here believe it or not and does create a little bit of comedy. Overall it really is not worth watching, and if you want a good comedy, go watch a Mel Brooks film.
