Fame is so fickle... excellant performance by Jennifer Hudson.

Poetry in motion to watch Selma Hayek act as an artist with no boundaries...

Mermaids(1990)
½

Good dysfunctional acting for a halfbreed..

Moonstruck
Moonstruck(1987)

Good Italian acting for a halfbreed...

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Loved the synchronized fight in the trees, like a ballet dance... Great stealth by the warrior women.

Journey into Buddhism: Vajra Sky Over Tibet
½

Climbing a mountain has never been more spiritual...

Apocalypto
Apocalypto(2006)
½

Brutal concept of the Mayan civilization's oppression of other Indigenous people. Could the purpose of those ceremonial temples be as Mel Gibson portrays? The ending was cool... the Mayans got to meet .... (don't want to spoil it for you.)

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

1. Amazed and proud of the Circle and its Four Directions depicted on the Mountain top scene. 2. And so, we consider the Eagle sacred. 3. Sometimes, for the benefit of all, it doesn't matter who the real hero is.

Dances With Wolves

Rodney Grant as Wind in His Hair was wonderful acting. He had to learn the Lakota language to do his part.

The Pursuit of Happyness

So, that is what life is about, "the pursuit of happyness". I can relate to the running (on empty) as the process to reach happyness.

Déjà Vu
Déjà Vu(2006)

Cool interpretation of Deja Vu.

Flags of Our Fathers

Great acting by Adam Beach as Native American Ira Hayes...

Windtalkers
Windtalkers(2002)
½

Great wind talking by Adam Beach considering he is not Navajo. He had to learn the language.

American Outlaws

Nathaniel Arcand as the Indian rider was cool..

Flight 93
Flight 93(2005)

A great tribute to the passengers of Flight 93. Very humbling to know they died for our safety.

Tristan & Isolde

How a lie (giving the wrong name) can change the course of love. history. wars. deaths. Amazing storytelling!

The Basketball Diaries

The unfortunate result of addiction is that it turns addicts against their families. Decaprio did some excellant work for this movie.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Love the Dark Horse Riders... really adds to the suspense. Legolas' riding ability was extra-ordinary, so was the concept of endless arrows from his quiver!

King Arthur
King Arthur(2004)

Guinevere (Keira Knightley) as a warrior saying she will protect Lancelot (Ioan Gruffudd) was a plus for women. Lancelot's role as a support to King Arthur (as opposed to taking his wife in other versions) was a plus for men.

The Da Vinci Code

Great and courageous depiction of the Holy Grail!

Thunderheart
Thunderheart(1992)

True depiction of going from a major city and great highways with great cars to another world the reserve.

The Last Samurai

The "gentleman's war" and the ability to have a conversation was most impressive.

Pow Wow Highway

The humour between one man's spiritual journey and one man's political journey.

Kundun
Kundun(1997)

Cried in disbelieft at the sea of dead monks in red robes....

Romeo + Juliet

Great modern adaptation of an old tragedy!

Hidalgo
Hidalgo(2004)

A great tribute to the mustang!

Brokeback Mountain

Reinforces our humanity toward others.

Walk the Line

A wonderful tribute to Johnny Cash...

The Last of the Mohicans

The music makes the movie!

The Phantom of the Opera

It's all about the music.. inside my mind.
