I felt a little chill throughout this film--the moment when you realize you are watching pure genius at work. Jackson is a perfectionist of the most intense kind, but as you watch this you realize it's part self-obsessed--the other part being a debt he owes to his audience. He wants their experience to be exactly what they are expecting, and more if possible. As (I paraphrase what) Jackson said: The music needs to be heard the way the audience is expecting it. Just a phenomenal film--not a song the masses won't recognize.
I wouldn't go so far as to call this movie "good," but I was certainly entertained on a rainy afternoon with Mom. I laughed, I...groaned. Then laughed a bit more. Because it was solid entertainment value and super duper predictable. And sometimes, you just have to say, "Thank you!" to that.
As much as I adore Kristen Bell, I can't say it was enough to actually finish this film. Contrived and predictable, I can pretty much tell you what happens without actually getting past minute 32. At least Duhamel was pretty to look at.
It's Toy Story 3! What's not to love? This movie was so fun, so heart-wrenching, and so lovely. It was like visiting old friends I had not seen in years.
I thought, "Oh, Broderick and Snow, this movie will at least be entertaining." I wouldn't necessarily go that far although I did actually finish the movie. It was banal and ridiculous--and I don't mean that in my "ridiculous is awesome" way. It's one of those movies you can skip and never feel bad about never seeing.
No, I am not ashamed to admit I watched this movie. And it was certainly everything I expected--inane, silly, and lacking in character development. Perfect to make fun of after a long day at work.
I have to say, I was quite impressed with this movie. Going in I was expecting something a little hokey, a little cheesy, and a tear-jerker. But overall I thought the movie was very well-done--it had strong character arcs, a nice full story arc, and kept me engaged. Sandra Bullock was definitely at her finest.
I have to say, I was far more impressed with this movie than I was disappointed. First of all, my sights weren't set that high. Second, the cast is actually quite talented (Dafoe, Harden, even Grant and Quaid). Third, it is funny in a very sarcastic sense. And finally, it didn't require me to think very much. Overall, I think I was happy with what I got.
Out of the Brat Pack oeuvre, if you will, this has to be by far the worst film. Complete lack of character development, story lines coming out of nowhere--there are some crazy ladies out there, but do we really start nonsensical, hysterical arguments out of the blue?!? I do have to say, however, there the second half-star comes from Jim Belushi and Elizabeth Perkins (and the respectable amount of Rob Lowe shirtless scenes). Those two are at their shiniest and loveliest--I did want to know more about those two. The rest of the film? Completely unrealistic.
Classically Cohen while still remaining faithful to the classic Western. This was such a beautiful film in every way--acting, directing, fidelity to the story, cinematography. An outstanding piece of work.
This film was absolutely fantastic. Melissa Leo was out of this world, Amy Adams rivaled her, and you think you have seen Christian Bale at his best but you just haven't until you take the time to see this film. Russell is arguably at his finest, and those 7 sisters--well, you just won't understand until you have watched.
I didn't realize how affected I was until the end--and was shocked at how overwhelmed I was. Don't be fooled by the "movie where the guy cuts off his arm" tagline--it was only 5 minutes of the movie and it's a necessary plot device. This movie is well worth your time and emotional investment.
A really beautiful film that conceptualizes Ginsberg's masterpiece for those of us too uncool to be able to decipher it ourselves (yes, this includes me). James Franco was fantastic as the poet himself and was surrounded by such amazing actors, it is hard to not feel content when the film is finished. Definitely worth a watch.
A lovely, beautiful story of redemption and the price we pay to hold on to our painful secrets. I am not often into period westerns, but I can appreciate their place in the American film canon. I have to say, though, Bill Cobbs as the preacher was the funniest character, lightening the mood immensely.
Good Thanksgiving fun. Kept me interested, involved, and made my heart race a couple of times. Chris Pine is definitely worth watching because, well, look at him. Denzel is good as per usual. And who knew that an empty locomotive would make such a great bad guy?
A heart-felt, fantastic movie that had an incredible story to tell. You hated Barney? Well, that was certainly the point. Rosamund Pike? Gorgeous and brilliant. Such a lovely, lovely, lovely film.
Could there be a more adorable, lovely, enjoyable film? Funny, mainstream, and it will melt your heart. You remember your first love. When you were 10. I know I do.
Utterly and completely amazing. A joy to watch, this film tells the story of King George VI and his dealing with a stammer to become a rock for the people of England. Colin Firth was glorious, Helena Bonham Carter was just exquisite, and Geoffrey Rush was magnificent. Do NOT miss this film.
