The movie is a very good documentary. It is informative about the beginning of the US Navy and it shows how far the military went to win wars in the twentieth century. However, the filmmakers could have used more time to give the viewers a little more insight into the details of the people and the culture of the Navy, although it is very informative. The good thing is that the film has some of the best interviews. Unfortunately, some of the facts were not correct, such as when the Navy was in WWI and they had not yet raised the draft to the high ranking officer. The director, Heather Brown, could have written a better explanation. Also, in the movie, it is very surprising that so many of the senior leaders that were there were college drop-outs. This could have been a better explanation. Also, it is a very good documentary to show people that actually served in the US Navy. However, one of the key problems is that the film is very short and does not give the audience enough information about the real history of the Navy and what happened during WWI and WWII. Also, the documentary did not show enough of the US Navy history, which is very important, especially since many of the most important people in history were also members of the Navy. Also, the director, Heather Brown, could have explained the cost of living in the US Navy in more detail, such as the salaries of officers, enlisted men, and non-commissioned officers, as well as the cost of living in different areas of the country. Overall, it is a good documentary. But it could have been much better.

When I heard this film would be shown at the Toronto International Film Festival, I was not expecting much. It was very good though and it was worth my $10 admission fee. The documentary focuses on the life and times of one of the largest and best known American warships, the USS Saratoga (SSN-786), the only ship of the class ever built. It was decommissioned in 1989 and her mothballed hull was picked to be scrapped. When the vessel was put out to sea again in 1996, she became the largest "Crisis Ship" in the world, and was ready to do battle with a variety of threats. The Saratoga was actually one of the first ships to have GPS navigation equipment. During her tour, several deadly accidents occurred. As the ship was heading to a port in Japan, two of the crew and passengers were killed by a lightning strike while in the fuel hold. The ship was damaged during a collision with a container ship. As it got closer to land in the Pacific Ocean, the commanding officer's command was called for emergency shipboard operations, and the ship was docked. While on deck, the captain was arrested for drunkenness. One of the crew members reported the captain and the other crew members to the command center, and they were arrested for sabotage. In a panic, the commanding officer ordered the ship to head for Japan. At the same time, the ship's computers ran out of power, and the ship was unable to switch from anti-satellite defense mode to anti-shipping mode. The crew was under fire from a range of weapons, but managed to land on the Japanese island of Kyushu. As the crew members were taking off from the ship, the warship began a deadly spiral. The ship's communications were cut off, and radio contact was lost. The ship eventually sank, and its commanding officer, Chief Warrant Officer Fred "Jaws" Schmidt (who was not injured) was found floating in the water. At the time, he had been the commander of the Saratoga. We learn that he had been a career officer who was promoted to a captain's rank after the ship had been decommissioned. He was aboard the ship as it sank. It is not clear if he survived or if he was dead by the time of the incident. The fact that the ship was abandoned made it look like a typical derelict, but the wreck was actually more of a victim of circumstance. After the Saratoga was found, a tug ship that was heading to the ship to salvage it was also lost. The ship, meanwhile, began to sink. This was the time when the four most dangerous weapons known to man began to be tested, including nuclear bombs. During this time, the Saratoga was inspected by a test crew and one of the weapons was dropped from the helicopter and detonated. While the bomb was on the vessel, it was about to explode. When it did, it was estimated that the ship would sink within ten minutes. Fortunately, the bomb detonated at the last second, and the ship sank in about two hours. It is interesting to note that the Saratoga was the only ship of its class ever to be decommissioned. The other ships in the class, the USS Yorktown, and the USS Missouri, all came out of service in the 1980s. There were several other ship class accidents during this period, including the USS John Paul Jones, USS Cabot, and the USS William Penn. The film included a lot of pictures of the original ship, so if you are interested in the Saratoga, I recommend renting it. Also, it is fun to hear about how they discovered the ship.

It's a pleasant surprise to see that the makers of LOST WORLD did a remarkable job of making a documentary about the books. Everything from the script, the voice-overs, the cinematography, to the visual style, are all very good. But what really shines through the screen is the look of the book. There is a sense of nostalgia that is so strongly ingrained in this book. And so strong, in fact, that I never actually read the book for myself. Because I found the book so beautiful, so evocative, so complex, I almost never read it myself. I think the strong sense of nostalgia is what most people remember about the book. I mean, the cover of the original book is so vivid that I can hardly believe I've never read it myself. I read the book when it first came out and was completely enthralled. And it was only later, when I started reading the novel, that I was absolutely stunned. It seems that I had bought the book so well that I'd read it so many times before, that I'd forgotten it was even called a book. Even though I read it a hundred times and had forgotten how much I loved it, I still loved the book so much. The fact that this movie seems to have re-affirmed this is very intriguing. But while this movie is, indeed, a very good documentary on the book, it's not just a good movie about the book. It's also a very good film on the book, with a strong sense of nostalgia and imagination. The director clearly shows that he loves the book very much, and is in love with the film, too. There's a subtle sense of humor that comes through very effectively. And I think that there's also a sense of mystery that is really well done. The film has a lot of great footage of the book, and a lot of great narration of the story of the book. It has a great cast, with some fantastic performances by all of the main characters. I think that this is one of the best films of the year. And I think that it's one of the best films of the decade. A very strong 7/10.

I had no intention of watching this documentary, and then I became interested when I saw the results of an online poll. This movie tells us that it's been a while since we have seen a British documentary of an important moment in the life of one of our world leaders. That is surprising, as in most of the recent documentaries of world leaders we have been presented with fictional or fictionalized versions of their lives. From George W. Bush's battle with his father, to Fidel Castro's final days, to Vladimir Putin, and now, Theresa May, who has been transformed from an unknown politician to the prime minister of Great Britain, the British public has been getting a glimpse of the issues and personalities that motivate some of their world leaders. Their leaders are real, but for the most part they are not presented as humans. The Prime Minister of Great Britain has become known in Britain as a slightly eccentric woman who is considered to be a weak leader. As the film opens, the most recent British prime minister (also British Prime Minister) has resigned, and now the prime minister herself has resigned. Her name is Theresa May. Her life has been one of a mother, and a determined woman who is passionate about serving her country. After she was a child, her mother died, and she was raised by her grandmother. She married a man who supported her, and became a mother herself. She was a dedicated mother, and she worked hard in her career. She never missed a day of work. The film traces her life in government, and her early years as a parliamentary candidate. Through the years, she was determined to become prime minister. At the time she was her late husband's age, she was still young. After her husband's death, she had to take care of her elderly mother. They did not want to let her live off of her inheritance, so she did not go on to become prime minister. She has been the prime minister since she was 35. Now, as prime minister, she has resigned and has been replaced by the Conservative Party leader who is also a mother. The film includes her life in the role of prime minister, and her role as a mother, and shows us how she does not differ from her mother. The film shows us the legacy that Theresa May has left, but it also shows her life as a woman, a mother, and a politician. It also shows the issues that have impacted her life, and how she has successfully handled these issues. It is an informative film, as it goes into what motivates her, and also her life as a politician. The documentary was interesting, but I do think that there are better documentaries that I have seen. This one was a very good documentary, but it was not as compelling as it could have been. It also did not cover many of the issues that were raised by the audience, such as the one-state solution, the use of technology to track the movements of the prime minister, the role of the media, and so on. This is why I recommend this documentary, and give it a 7 out of 10.

Like many other reviewers, I was unfamiliar with "The Stars and Stripes" in the early 80s. This documentary does an excellent job in describing the evolution of the U.S. government's efforts to try to establish a military force in support of President Reagan's vision of the "surge" in Iraq. Though the documentary is presented in a very researched way, it's hard not to feel the temptation to cast blame at the feet of the military brass. In addition to one or two parts where the veterans make claims to be "on duty" for days at a time, the documentary is also littered with comments made by President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Defense Secretary Rumsfeld, and other high-level members of the Bush administration. This element of the film is the main problem. While the film does a good job of presenting information about the origins of the military surge in Iraq, it's not a story well-told. Many of the statements are simply not supported by facts. I'm guessing that many people in this country were expecting a documentary about the Vietnam War or the Cold War or some other Cold War topic. Those people should be grateful for the movie because it's only so much information they have to work with. But there are many other parts of the documentary that also suffer from a lack of focus. The biggest problem is the way the film is presented. I'm not talking about the editing or the directing. I'm talking about the fact that this is an image-oriented documentary that's all about one image. Many of the high points of the film are not that much of a break from the documentary-minded nature of the rest of the film. For example, many of the high points are either images that are captured by the camera, or are the images that are being shown by the actors on the screen. In my opinion, it's the latter, not the former, that should be more emphasized. The fact that the military is actually involved in the production of this film is hardly enough to make up for the lack of focus and long shots that make up a lot of the time. It's quite clear that the producers of this film wanted the documentary to focus on images and not on facts. This way, they could use the stars of the documentary to help carry the film and add an extra dimension to the documentary experience. But that's not the case. The stars are shown almost at random, and they only appear in the moments when it's necessary to show the stars. This is a very ineffective technique. I've seen documentaries that are much longer and more structured. They do not have stars at all. Many documentaries, such as the Iranian Revolution, The Vietnam War, and 9-11, have stars that help carry the film through and convey important information to the audience. There's nothing wrong with these documentaries because they present important information, but they never have a single scene where there's a star in the scene, and it's made up solely of images that are not being used in any other scene. I feel that if they did, it would have worked better. But even if they didn't, I still don't think the documentary would have had a chance to work.

There are films that explore a variety of topics in a manner that is easy to follow but hard to follow. And then there are films that look and sound like a compilation of all the things that are already covered in more than one film and which just need to be told a lot more eloquently. How many times have you seen "A History of Violence" and "A Knight's Tale"? "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" and "The Graduate" are good examples of these. The film that manages to create this kind of level of impact is "Vigil". It's a perfect example of a film that gets very good at telling a story with all the facts it needs but at the same time, the story and the language of the film get in the way of the viewers' understanding of the film. The picture of the world was much easier to understand when the viewer wasn't just listening to someone speaking, but when the camera was being used to tell a story. Without a script, without a camera and without a story, the whole film is impossible to understand. The problem with all these films is that the viewer is trying to use the language of the film to understand the story. I read some comments about "Vigil" being a metaphor for the German concentration camps. Well, that would make it sound more like a movie about concentration camps than a movie about the Holocaust. The film is much more about the horror of the concentration camps than about the Holocaust. The Nazis were the ones who were not wrong, who were the ones who were not wrong. The Holocaust was the result of a failure of humanity. We never learn about the success of the Nazi system, and that's what the film is about. And if we were to learn about the success of the Nazi system, we wouldn't like it as much. What I would like to know is: does anyone know a film that talks about the German concentration camps? I'd love to see it.
