Junebug by Phil Morrison( Visual )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 1,187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Junebug is a deceptively simple, deeply resonant story about the inherent loneliness of family, embracing the texture of a world the movies rarely visit. Three years have passed since George has been home, and he is bringing his bride, Chicago art dealer Madeleine. His family--father Eugene, mother Peg, brother Johnny and sister-in-law Ashley--await them with a mixture of excitement, anxiety, and dread. Junebug sounds a paean to yearning, alienation, and endless hope, in the face of the enormous distances that can divide two people, separated by two ways of life

This is the third in a series of films about a boy and his dog, his family, and the mean man next door who isn't so mean, if you get to know him. When an abandoned car is discovered and the driver is reported missing, people immediately begin to suspect that Judd had something to do with it. Later, when the missing driver turns up dead--he was last seen arguing with Judd in a bar--most of the townspeople are ready to convict Judd on general principles. Marty believes in him, and his dad backs him up: Judd is a troubled man, but certainly not a killer. Can a bad person truly change, as long as people give him a chance to do so?

G. I. Jane by Ridley Scott( Visual )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein weiblicher Nachrichten-Offizier wird als erste Frau ins Trainingsprogramm einer amerikanischen Spezialeinheit aufgenommen. Nach vielen Anfeindungen und Demütigungen durch die harte Ausbildung und die Verleugnung alles Weiblichen gewinnt sie den Respekt der Soldaten und ihres Ausbilders. Ein ganz auf den äußeren Effekt hin inszenierter Film, der zwar vorgibt, für Gleichberechtigung einzutreten, diese jedoch durch die Wahl seiner Mittel hintertreibt. Das Ergebnis ist ein ärgerlicher Film, der das Militär distanzlos verherrlicht. (Lexikon des internationalen Films 1999/2000 (CD-ROM) Die von gerechtfertigten Superflops der Schundwerke "Striptease" und "Nicht schuldig" gebeutelte Demi Moore beweist erneut Gespür für schlechte Filme. Als kahlrasierte Masochistin quält Regisseur Ridley Scott ("Thelma & Louise", "Alien") die "starke Frau" elende 124 Minuten lang. Definitiv der schlechteste Film von 1998. (Film.de - Kino) (...) Da sieht man"s mal wieder: Politiker tun doch wirklich alles, um im Gespräch zu bleiben und Wählerstimmen zu bunkern. Der Film gibt allerdings weit weniger her als man sich von der Idee verspricht. Zu lange verweilt Ridley Scott, von dem man beispielsweise mit "Blade Runner" schon echte Meisterwerke gesehen hat, bei den Problemen, bei Nebensächlichkeiten. Eine der wenigen wirklich interessanten Szenen ist die, in der Demi Moore sich selbst die Haare schneidet.
