title: Don't Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Miramax distributor: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: Unrated starring: Shawn Wayans, Marlon Wayans, Tracey Cherelle Jones, Vivian Smallwood, Chris Spencer, Darrel Heath, Keenen Ivory Wayans, Craig Wayans, Kim Wayans, Damien Wayans. director: Paris Barclay film release year: 1996 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: One and a Half Stars sound/picture rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren So now here’s another couple of Wayanses making another all-too-obvious movie parody. The very long title is in itself a parody of titles like “Boyz N the Hood”, and the script by Shawn Wayans, Marlon Wayans and Phil Beauman is a parody of all those black-oriented tales of growing up in the urban ghettos of Los Angeles—like “Boyz N the Hood.”

title: Scary Movie 3.5 studio: Dimension Home Video MPAA rating: Unrated starring: Anna Faris, Anthony Anderson, Leslie Nielsen, Camryn Manheim, Simon Rex, George Carlin, D.L. Hughley, Queen Latifah, Eddie Griffin, Denise Richards, Regina Hall and Charlie Sheen. director: David Zucker film release year: 2005 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: One Star sound/picture rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas What we can hope is, but probably is not, the last in this constantly weakening franchise, “Scary Movie 3.5” is supposed to be an uncut version of “Scary Movie 3.” The problem is that the film is still so short (the credits roll after 76 minutes) that it is hard to believe that anything was added to the theatrical release. Taking into account the fact that there are almost 50 minutes of deleted scenes and alternate endings, I struggle to understand how this movie ended up being so short. Maybe it’s because it’s so bad and lacks any real humor, except perhaps at the lowest common denominator, but even then ...

title: The Blues Brothers function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Universal distributor: Universal Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Cab Calloway, James Brown, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Kathleen Freeman, Henry Gibson, John Candy, Twiggy, Frank Oz, Charles Napier, Carrie Fisher, and lots more director: John Landis film release year: 1980 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four and a Half Stars sound/picture rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren “The Blues Brothers” is one of those movies that seems to get a little better each time you watch it. There’s never been another movie like this one, not even the belated sequel “Blues Brothers 2000.” This was made by a bunch of young filmmakers full of ginger and ideas; the movie is so intensely energetic that even the scant quiet scenes have a feeling of bottled-up power, ready to erupt at any moment. Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi met before they started Saturday Night Live; they were instant best friends, with Aykroyd introducing Belushi to the blues and ...

title: Monty Python's: The Meaning Of Life function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Universal Studios Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Eric Idle, Michael Palin release year: 1983 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein For dedicated Pythonites, the meaning of life is 'Monty Python's Flying Circus.' That's fair enough, especially for fans of absurdist comedy that attacks everything in sight. The troupe of six writer/actors--five Englishmen (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Jones, Eric Idle and Michael Palin) and one American (Terry Gilliam, who also serves as animator)--had moments of unsurpassed brilliance. It's impressive, though not surprising, to see how perfectly undated 'Monty Python's The Meaning of Life' holds up 15 years after its theatrical release.

In 1919, women had been granted the right to vote, and for the first time their voices were heard in presidential elections and senatorial and representative races. Still, things did not drastically change for women on the national front.
