World War Z
The Bling Ring
Jack the Giant Slayer
21 And Over
But it is almost three hours long. And it is so drippy.
| Original Score: C+
It's a bulldozer of a musical, plowing straight through things like taste, restraint, grace, and style in favor of big, big, and more big.
| Original Score: 2/4
To enjoy director Robert Wise's Best Picture winner you must overlook the bloated, sugar-coated story, and even then it's an uphill slog.
The septet of blond and beaming youngsters who have to act like so many Shirley Temples and Freddie Bartholomews when they were young do as well as could be expected with their assortedly artificial roles, but the adults are fairly horrendous.
| Original Score: 2/5
Every audience sniffle and tear has been taken into account.
God, The Sound of Music is so freakin' nice.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
It's so perfectly contrived and mechanical and fresh as a daisy, it's infuriating. And only the sly, insistently subversive Christopher Plummer is on our side.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
In dialogue, song and story, Music still contains too much sugar, too little spice.
Outstanding family film features glorious music.
| Original Score: 5/5
Objectively I can look at it and see that is a load of sentimental hogwash, but if I relax and just watch it, it sucks me in every time.
| Original Score: 4/4
One of the most enduring, feel-good musicals ever made, with sing-along songs made for the entire family.
A classic in every sense of the word.
| Original Score: 5/5
Blissfully corny family classic.
| Original Score: 9/10
Did you really think a bunch of mean old Nazis could keep the angelic Julie Andrews from spreading her music and love?
| Original Score: 4/5
Watching it just makes you feel wonderful.
A warmly pulsating, captivating drama.
Call me a drongo, but this really is quite watchable (yes, I've seen it more than once).
If only real life offered such satisfying fantasies as those of The Sound of Music.
To acknowledge the film as anything less than a genuine classic seems mere contrariness.
Apesar de repetir cada canção duas vezes, o filme jamais cansa, encantando graças ao frescor de todo o elenco - e, em especial, de Julie Andrews.
