Hidden Figures

Its about time that these women got their due. A piece of history, sadly, not taught in school. Bravo to the best put together cast in a long time which kept me engaged and thoroughly interested in their journey. Kirsten Dunst may have had a small role but the ending was powerful and said volumes of what we wish and hope we can get to in a truly "equal" world. Funny and well written this movie was completely enjoyable.

I love everything about these movies. Saw this on week three of its release and it made me laugh! A wonderful ensemble makes me care about all of them and Baby Groot... well I just want to take him home. The visuals are top notch, the soundtrack is from my own time so I am dancing in the aisle and kudo's for the strong women characters and keeping a nice balance of personalities. Looking forward to vol. 3.

I didn't think so at first but believe it or not this is a really good movie! If not for Lord Of The Rings it would have taken the best picture oscar. It certainly deserved it. Visually engrossing with some of the best storytelling around - its the kind of movie I can watch over and over. Thats when you know a movie has "legs". Russell Crowe and a stellar cast make all the characters come alive and you feel yourself going along for the ride.

A really good film, for its time. I think one of the better Patrick Swayze vehicles. A bit cringe worthy now on how abortion was looked at, dealt with and the constant need to "bang" that young thing gets a little old. Not to mention the cougars who want the same thing. Ugh! Too bad Jennifer Gray decided she needed a nose job - she looked perfectly pretty in this and could have stayed that way. Not a fan of her new face - she's almost unrecognizable.

All said I do love the final dance number because one of my favorite songs is (I've had) The Time of My Life by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes. Justice is done to it.

I love this movie. By far the best movie I've seen in quite awhile. It really made an impression and its something I want to watch again so I can absorb the dialogue I didn't catch the first time.

This movie is rock em", sock em", no holds barred in your face family damage. I can't even call it dysfunctional - its way beyond that. For sure this is "family dynamic" at its extreme but I think we can all relate on one level or another.

Thank God for actress' such as Streep and Roberts who continue to amaze me with their abilities and talents to make me believe with all my heart the transformation of character. I also want to mention that this is one of the best ensemble casts that was just incredible to watch. Honorable mention to Juliette Lewis who is one of the most underated actors today. I wish she would make more movies. Roberts totally deserved her oscar nod if not the win and Meryl Streep was just plain robbed of an oscar! The woman is a treasure. (yes I did see Blue Jasmine.)
