Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
RT on DVD & Blu-Ray
As I Lay Dying
Crowe...disappears into the character just as he did when he played tobacco whistleblower Jeffrey Wigand in The Insider.
| Original Score: 4/4
A tedious exercise in manipulation that once again proves Hollywood is short of vision.
... Crowe disappears into the role of John Nash and proves again that he is one of today's most versatile actors.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Exceptionally acted, smartly scripted, superbly directed -- a beautiful thing.
| Original Score: A
This film is a puzzlement in its inconsistency, especially coming from Ron Howard...Still, good performances abound.
| Original Score: 4/5
'As straightforward fiction, this is solid feelgood fare, but the fact that it's based on a real person, real success and failure opens it up to far greater scrutiny.'
| Original Score: 3/5
A different film might have been made about a wider sampling of Nash's experiences, but it wouldn't necessarily be a better film, and it certainly wouldn't be this film.
| Original Score: B
Director Ron Howard has created a moving masterpiece, elegantly guiding the audience through John Forbes Nash Jr.'s life.
The film shows the triumph and tragedy of life, as well as the beauty of the human spirit to overcome and survive.
| Original Score: 5/5
Both Nash and the audience deserve better.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Well-made film with some deservedly Oscar-nominated performances -- it takes some shocking liberties with its subject matter but remains engaging and enjoyable throughout.
Clear the Academy Award decks. Here comes this year's winner.
Howard smashes through the conventions of the damaged-hero tale to recount the struggle of one man to stand upright on quaking ground.
Crowe's performance alone is worth the admission price.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Howard's sappy movie covers some of the material, but is far more concerned with box office and Oscar glory.
| Original Score: C-
Until the unbearably sappy final minutes, the film moves at an absorbing pace and -- in the rarest of qualities - allows the bulk of its sentimentality to emerge honestly.
A Beautiful Mind is at its best when its subject is at his worst.
An inspiring story of courage and triumph.
... Howard's duty is not journalistic, yet it seems a much more interesting movie could have been made about this Nash fellow ...
| Original Score: B
Formula Hollywood at the top of its form.
| Original Score: 8/10
