I had no idea what to expect going into this film, but wherever my expectations were they were definitely exceeded. The story has great morals and themes and makes a lot of great references. Like Legos themselves, anyone ages 4+ will enjoy this movie. The humor and story is for everyone. The cast is terrific, the animation is impressive and the writing is very clever. This is one of the best, if not the best, "kids" movies I have ever seen.
This is a nice, sometimes funny and very heart-warming movie. It seems strange at times, and the glacial pace can really weigh on the eyelids, but this film ties everything up very well by the end. Neither the acting nor the writing is Academy Award worthy, but they get the job done. An enjoyable watch for a slow day.
The fact that this film makes it seem perfectly plausible to fall in love with an operating system is reason enough to watch it. On top of that, you add a very heartfelt and sometimes funny screenplay, a great performance by Phoenix, and great voice work by Johansson, and you get one of the better movies of the year. Spike Jonze also does a great job styling this film and creating a very interesting depiction of the "not-so-distant" future. This is a great watch.
Another Woody Allen film, another "meh" movie watching experience. This movie does have its moments, and Blanchett gives a hell of a performance, but overall it was just another flat Woody Allen movie to me. What others find witty and touching about him, I usually find as dull and uninteresting. If you like his films you'll probably like this one. I just cannot get into his movies.
This film works alright as a drama, but great as a comedy. This film runs far too long, but manages to entertain for the entire 3 hours. This film gets way out of hand at times, but that plays right into its hands. This crazy story coupled with great performances by everyone on screen, especially DiCaprio, Robbie, Hill and McConaughey, creates a unique, fun and wild movie. There is very little substance, and of that small amount most is masked by tons of flashy theatrics, but that is not a bad thing in this case.
