But when teachers are able to turn up and expand previously unreachable minds, the Earth will certainly feel like it's moving.

The flag of the Metropolitan Police can be seen in several scenes. It is composed of the city logo with a blue background. Here Ice Cube stars as the chief of the undercover 21 Jump Street Team. The police building is in an abandoned Korean-American Church, as you can see the stain glass window in the background and a left over cross behind Captain Dickinson. The movies gives an uplifting message with hope that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and things can work out, but often in a way you would never have expected.

Get Low is an old fashioned yarn with a certain kind of charm, in a similar steady pace and tone to Driving Miss Daisy. It is serious cinema that addresses the issues of guilt, forgiveness, and redemption. It gets preachy without being all that preachy, it simply lets the story tell itself.
If you can't stand to sit though this movie, then you need eat at the kiddie table, and shouldn't be bossing anybody around.
A well put together film that packed with nutritious themes. In another scene the patriotic bunting can be seen on the stage. The US Flag can be seen in the corner store window.
Carrying guilt effects one and in a serendipitous way connects us to others in ways that only the mysterious chords of history yet to come can unravel and understand.
Have an Extra Good Friday this Friday!

Before the occlusion of Dancing with the Stars on the Imagination of the American Public, there was Dirty Dancing twirling in from 1987. It was the classic retro movie of the early 1960s created in the 1980s. The soundtrack successfully blended the early sixties with the later eighties dance pop.
A coming of Age Movie in more ways than one, not just for girls but reflective as well for society. The cultural shift in America from the 1961 to 1969, has never been matched on any magnitude before.
Dirty Dancing addressed serious issues of the heart, family relationships, class structure, and dancing with a distinguished sparkle. More than just a sermon, it was a second movement to Foot Loose Philosophy, with a dramatic and fairytale charm.
Unique vexillological items of interest include the plastic putting flags of Kellerman's Mountain House retreat, that use the K emblem. The US flag also appears on the porch workers residence. The US flag can be seen behind Patrick Swayze's head as he gets into a scuffle with an egoic, mean spirited college boy.
Starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, it falls into the Some Where Over the Rainbow Class of movies that include the like of The Wizard of Oz, Back to the Future, Titanic, and Star Wars. And done with less industrial magic and more with good old fashioned authentic butter and bread theatrical A+ acting.
