The Bucket List Reviews
Edit: april 21, 2015... not sure when that review was from.
Anyway, New review:
Life is a interesting rollercoaster. We really do not know why we are here. Freeman and Nicholson manage to give us a glimpse of what it can be like, the battle between selfish (or individualized) pleasure, and intimate connection.
The movie feels genuine - and the top notch performance by the two is wonderful.
I love all the relationship dynamics at play, and it really gives a wonderful portrait of what it means to be alive.
It emanates a powerful reminder of the beautiful futility that is life.
Saw this on 8/3/15
Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman are so adorable in this film that nothing else about this seems necessary. Rob Reiner has done a good work here but the VFX is simply bad and if you see a Taj Mahal that's so underpopulated, then you are not in India.
2007's 'The Bucket List' has that ''feel better'' stuff and the concept of Hope that always keep you alive and young, this movie is about a genius mechanic and the insane lonely business tycoon who are diagnosed with the cancer and decide to pursue in fulfilling their ''Bucket list'', they both get into some really crazy stuffs like skydiving, African Safari, racing cars, riding on the China wall and reaching the Himalayan summit with only intention to have their life fulfilled with joy and sense of content, both help each other to make feel better and lead their way in making their living meaningful, ''one day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching'' this single quote from this movie summarizes the entire story.
The movie takes you in its narrative pattern and helps in getting along with the character and their feelings all through the story, its Jack Nicholson an actual super star of his kind who truly grab your attention with his ''go free'' kind of role and Morgan Freeman as usual portray his typical classic way of performance, this work is something different from the traditional movie making style and try to convey the valuable message for the life, it's the journey of discovering oneself.
It's a sad story about a guy that is a terminal patient ,
and when he gets in the hospital he meets the boss from that hospital that is also terminal . Togheter they want to make a bucket list that they want to finish before they die. It's a really gripping film and I want to say that you really have to see this film.They are good actors (Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman)
(Full review coming soon - with better wording probably)
