Wah Do Dem Review


Excellent
This scruffy and offhanded comedy-drama has a certain realistic charm that keeps us smiling all the way trough. It's a cleverly made film with a story that continually moves forward, taking us on an enjoyable series of adventures.

Slacker musician Max (Bones) is looking forward to a freebie Caribbean cruise with his girlfriend Willow (Jones), but she breaks up with him just before they're due to leave. Max's friends insist that he goes anyway, although all of them are too busy to travel with him. Bored on his own, he jumps ship when he gets to Jamaica. But this turns into a bigger challenge than expected when he's robbed of everything but his swim-trunks and has to traverse the island on foot to find the American Embassy.

The Harder They Come Review


OK
As a piece of Jamaicana, the Jimmy Cliff-starrer The Harder They Come owns a unique place in cinematic history.

As a movie, sadly, it's pretty poor -- a mismash of urban warfare and Rasta opera -- as Cliff travels to Kingston to try to make it as a musician but ends up thwarted and, naturally, turns to Jamaica's biggest stereotype: Selling pot. Made on a low low budget, director Perry Henzell spent what money he had on all the wrong things, though Cliff's music is of course a standout.
