Film Critic Quote of the Week

"Here we are, almost a decade [after 'The Full Monty,'] suffering through the dregs of the knockoffs, the worst of which might be On a Clear Day, a Scottish comedy-drama about an unemployed shipyard foreman with “Big Dreams” that’s so calculating yet inept that your mind wanders from the action onscreen and envisions winsome male strippers being fed into the gears of industrial machinery... midway through the picture, in a sequence where Danny falls off a boat during a practice outing for Frank’s English Channel run, I found myself wishing Danny’s buddies would accidentally run over him in their rescue attempt, sending his propeller-severed noggin spiraling into the briny deep and transforming the latest Full Monty spawn into a cover-up psychodrama modeled on the fishing trip section of Short Cuts.
-Matt Zoller Seitz of New York Press, who apparently so disliked "On a Clear Day" that it caused him to have violent revenge fantasies. Then again, he must just be in a "Sopranos" state of mind. Posted by Stephen Silver at April 7, 2006 11:17 AM

Hi everyone. I think it is good that books still exist, but they do make me sleepy.
I am from Gabon and too poorly know English, tell me right I wrote the following sentence: "The permission is hard of the expectancy of citizens that locate throughout the station; los angeles is located as rational centre, held to drug by mainland aware city that checks the drug to slow on the jurisdiction and the final citizens."

Thank you very much :). Owen.
