  Child 44: let's put an end to British
Soviet thriller Child 44 continues the trend of actors putting on funny voices to play foreigners. Why can’t they keep their mouths shut? It remains to be seen whether Tom Rob Smith’s trilogy of thrillers set in postwar Soviet Russia ever becomes a full trilogy of movies. My suspicion says no. Like many modern movie trilogies, Smith’s series of novels falls off depressingly in its second and ...

  Resolved Question: How has Peter Weir had an
The Film Gallipoli reinforced the romanticised ANZAC legend and put it back into mind of the public, particularly after mindset left over from the Vietnam War.

  Resolved Question: Can I get an okay from
I've made a fan-produced edition of Dead Poets Society that has deleted scenes I trasferred from a rare laserdisc (not dvd), plus raw footage I've inserted from the "bonus featues" section on he Special edition DVD, all into one movie. So far I've only made one copy for personal use.If I got written permission from Peter Weir, could I post it to youtube? I guess I might have to make it pay-per-view so that Weir and the other production staff receive their entitlement (I really don't know how that works). Any suggestions?
