An extraordinary look into the controversial political career of Imelda Marcos. As the former first lady of the Philippines, Imelda Marcos is best known for her opulent lifestyle, but it was her behind-the-scenes influence of her husband's presidency that rocketed her to the global political forefront. A journey through the Marcos family's long history of corruption, extravagance and brutality, this documentary tells a cautionary tale of a powerful female leader whose questionable sense of reality divided a nation.

I've always been a fan of the Legend of Zelda series and this documentary is a great way to get a feel for what this series is all about. This film has some nice insights on everything from the backstory of Link, to the powers of the game and the lore of the entire franchise. The film also covers a lot of interesting issues in gaming culture including the ethics of these games, the industry and the gaming community. It also includes interviews from people who are critical of the games, gamers and critics, as well as the gaming community. It's definitely an interesting look at the world of video games, one of the few I've seen where everyone agrees on something. It's also a look into the culture of gamers and the gaming industry and it's ups and downs. I would definitely recommend this documentary as well as the series. I'd definitely suggest this film to everyone who enjoys video games or just wants to know what these games are about.

I am a fan of the TV series and the film is nothing like what I expected, but is an interesting, entertaining watch and a new audience to the fantasy genre, is a plus. The film will also appeal to older viewers who may have forgotten the original series as a result of the quality of the TV series. The acting is solid and the film itself is a nice film to watch if you have no interest in fantasy.

I loved this documentary. It was a great insight into the world of the elite and the issues they face. It is a must see for anyone who has ever had a bit of money, or for those who want to know more about the world of money. It is a shame that this documentary has not been released on DVD. If you want to see what the elite think of the world, or if you want to learn about the issues facing the elite, then this documentary is for you.

The movie was very well made. It is about how Daniel Plainview went from a local police officer to a CEO of the Steel Corporation. The movie is interesting in that it shows how he became so powerful and how he deals with his problems. It also showed that he was an extremely aggressive individual, and that even the least provocation is a possible death sentence. The people in the film were not the perfect heroes, but they were very good in their own way. The most impressive thing about the film is that it doesn't just have a documentary style, but it also has a suspenseful feel. This is good because it helps the viewer to keep a very active imagination. Overall, the film was very well made and I recommend it.

Forget the reviews, if you want to be entertained, go watch this movie, it's a real waste of time and money. So many "special effects" and stories coming out of the Hollywood machine, they have turned into "special effects" and "trying to make some money". I found this movie fascinating. There was no ulterior motive for making it. No special effects. No acting. No directing. No story. It was just like any other movie, a remake, a rehash. If you want to see a movie that is pure entertainment, and absolutely no ulterior motives, then see "The Kingmaker". But for the rest of us, you have been warned! I was very happy to see that there were no robots fighting each other to kill each other, or aliens, no CGI, no special effects, no Hollywood corporate way of telling a story, no blockbuster movies. Just a movie, pure entertainment. It is not as good as "300", but it was very good. I hope that "The Kingmaker" inspires future filmmakers to produce movies that are so pure and pure entertainment, and that have no ulterior motives, just a pure entertainment. Good luck to all of you, hope this post gets a lot of upvotes and the top comments make this a top post on the IMDb. Good luck to everyone who gets this idea. "Kingmaker" is a movie that was "supposed to be made", but unfortunately, it was a waste of time and money.

John Nash and others like him were among the first to take a position in the early 1970s as a professional basketball player, and went on to help found the National Basketball Association (NBA), the governing body for amateur sports in the United States. This movie (and the great work of its makers) focus on Nash's life and career, with an eye to his importance to the game, how he created the game we know, and why so few of us know much about him. It's a superb movie. Nash's work was to make the game more fair, more accessible for players, and more accessible to spectators. When we hear about the rules in the NBA, it's usually that "but they don't apply to him" or "but he's in the NBA" or "but he was in college". But Nash was young and powerful. He was playing against and eventually defeating players he could not beat, and was later asked why he wanted to play in the pros. He said: "because it is the only game in the world that makes sense to me". Nash made the game better. I'm not familiar with Nash's life, but the man was a very interesting person. The way he got where he was, his relationship with his family, his love of music, and his faith were all fascinating. It's hard to explain the whole movie, and I recommend you watch the film and decide for yourself what you think. I hope this movie inspires you to get out and see the movie.

The year is 1956. Two years later, Scotland is going to vote on whether to remain part of the British Commonwealth. The independence movement has ignited. The referendum is seen as a fait accompli. With an election looming, Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Christopher Plummer) believes Scotland should remain. Churchill, a pragmatist, puts it best, "An independent Scotland would not have been an un-British place. It would have been an independent British place. A vote to remain an independent British place would have been a vote to remain an independent British place." The movie "Kingmaker" is an anti-UK political documentary that explores the life and opinions of Winston Churchill. "Kingmaker" tells the story of Churchill and how he became the leader of the British Commonwealth. His experience in the French Foreign Legion and the way his views evolved after the war are intriguing. This is the type of movie that stays with you. The film shows the political leanings of Churchill, his idealistic views on nationalism and the war, and the influence he had on the War Cabinet. Churchill was the leader of the Conservative Party and has been compared to Ronald Reagan, who was in his own right a conservative during his time in office. His beliefs on England's imperialistic past are not as controversial as Reagan's. This movie shows how Churchill's ideas changed over the years. It shows how he viewed the war, the war of independence, and the effects of the war on the war. In many ways, "Kingmaker" will make you think of Churchill and his views. This is a good movie. The political arguments in this movie are compelling. Christopher Plummer's portrayal of Churchill is interesting and full of his charisma. The political ideologies of Winston Churchill and the film, "Kingmaker", are intriguing. It was interesting to see the evolution of the beliefs and ideals of Churchill, not only through his politics but also his private life. The speeches and the events of his life are fascinating to watch. The movie was good but could have been better.

I first saw this movie on DVD, and I was totally blown away by it. This movie is so realistic and so well put together. The fact that they have all of these interviews and so much information just blows me away. It is amazing how they can put it all together and present it in such a way that is so easy to follow. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who has ever had a dream, or ever will have a dream. This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is so well put together and I can't wait to see the second part. I hope this movie gets the recognition it deserves.

This documentary is an important and revealing one. It shows the production of the Kingmaker, which is one of the biggest hits in history. The Kingmaker, which was produced by Tommy Tune, and the artists featured in the movie, is made up of several different artists, who are now famous, such as Snoop Dogg, Action Bronson, Lauryn Hill, and KRS-One. The production company also makes mention of the controversies that arise during the making of the movie. In one section, it shows the controversial issue of gun control in America, and the manner in which this was handled. Tommy Tune is shown to be a great musician, who is somewhat of a rebel. He is very proud of his music, which is completely independent of his social stances. He is not against the society, and he knows the most people are not what he thinks they are. He is not afraid to say he likes guns. However, he has done well in the past for the gun control movement. In this documentary, he explains how he ended up in the film. The situation is that he did not want to do this movie, but some music stars told him that they wanted him to. He also mentioned that he has put his ideas into the film, and he wanted to show that the gun control movement is not like what people think it is. This is a very important point to understand. When Tommy was asked about his thoughts on gun control, he stated that he was still against it, and that he did not want to do this movie. It is shown in the documentary that Tommy is not actually against guns, he is simply against the gun control movement. However, he then goes on to say that he is a product of the gun control movement. The documentary is about a controversial topic, and the movie is made up of several artists, who are famous in their fields. It is an important documentary to understand the history behind the gun control movement.

The Kingmaker is a documentary about a series of killings that took place in the U.K. in the early 1980's. The film is of a French nature, as the director is Belgian. The movie is split into two halves, the first of which covers the period between the early 1980's and the late 1980's, and the second covers the period between the mid 1990's and the early 2000's. The director, Eric Van Couvering, travels to England to meet with the families of the victims, and to interview them. The interviews are quite interesting, and make for an interesting documentary. The movie is also interesting for its portrayal of the area, the people, and the history. It was shot in England, Scotland, and the U.K., and while the British are the stars, the film contains a lot of Scotland, Ireland, and Scotland and Ireland. This film is an excellent study of these British communities, and a fascinating history study. It is also interesting to see the film as a reflection of the drug epidemic. The movie is an excellent study of a period in British history that is being studied more closely by academics and film makers, and it is a very interesting study of a period that can be viewed over and over again. 7/10.

It is not the typical documentary. It's not a general overview of the historical events. It's not a historical lecture. It's not a review of the historical events. In short, it's a one-hour long documentary. I never liked documentaries. I do like historical dramas but not documentaries. I like dramatic films that have a point. For example, in Titanic, we get to see the changing of the Titanic, but not the mechanics of the Titanic. In Good Night and Good Luck, we see the changes in the Hollywood movie industry, but we don't get to see the change in the movies themselves. In Manchurian Candidate, we see the changes in the politics of the USSR, but we don't get to see the change in the political system. These two films are different, but they are both about politics and history. One hour and twenty minutes. I would like to see more documentaries. But if you do not like documentaries, this film will not be a major disappointment.

I'm a huge Robert Rodriguez fan and I loved his previous film, "El Mariachi" and now I love his "The Kingmaker". I was shocked and shocked to find out that it was not even an option for Rodriguez to direct this film. I really wanted to see this movie and I really wanted to see the lead actors like Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Ben Foster. I really loved the film. The characters were well developed, the story was entertaining and I loved the music. The story itself is very engaging and I like how the characters were not like typical Hollywood villains and criminals. They were just real people. This film was a joy to watch and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. For those of you who are not familiar with Rodriguez's films and want to see a film with him in the director's chair, then I recommend this film. The film is also entertaining and entertaining, so you'll probably enjoy this film.

As a fan of historical dramas, I love to hear how a real life person is described in these types of films. "The Kingmaker" is a great example of how you can change people's lives by telling a story, even if it is true. I am not familiar with the actual historical period of the events portrayed in the movie, and the trailer does not give a lot away. However, it does give a sense of the majesty and power that Louis XIV had, even if it was only from the perspective of his servants. The acting was great, as were the visuals. The cinematography was great as well. I can't wait for the DVD release. I have seen this movie 4 times already and plan to see it 5 times.

I've watched this documentary so many times, that I've lost count. It's simply a beautiful story. The love and passion of these two amazing filmmakers and the passion of the people of Flint, Michigan, in the midst of a terrible situation. The director's use of the most important music in the world for this documentary is just amazing. I can't tell you how many times I've watched this film, and I've been shocked at how many times I've watched it. The interviews with Flint residents, teachers, clergy, and the mayor are some of the most beautiful, touching, and honest I've ever seen. The cinematography is beautiful. The music is so powerful. It's a movie that should be viewed over and over again. You'll be able to watch it over and over again, and you'll be able to love it as much as I have. It's just one of those movies that you can watch and be completely moved by, and it's one of those movies that will last a lifetime. It's just that good. Watch it. You won't regret it.

I was fortunate enough to see this film at a festival, and have to say that it was one of the most powerful films I have ever seen. The people of Haiti and the people of the United States are in complete agreement about this movie, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to share it with them. I think this is a must see for anyone who cares about the people of Haiti, or for those who are interested in the story of the Kingmaker.
