Whisper of the Heart (Mimi wo sumaseba) (If You Listen Closely)
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

[center][size=7][font=Impact]The Philadelphia Story
[size=4]$9.20
[/size][/font][/size][left]An interesting and extremely amusing look at what these actors love to do. Hepburn blew me away and Carey Grant is my fav ever. James Stewart always lightens moods and spirits. Recommended.
[center][size=7][font=Impact]Rear Window
[size=4]$10.00
[/size][/font][/size][left]One of the most captivating, original, thrilling and well told films ever. I was gripped every moment, and sad when it ended. An amazing motion picture, perfect in every aspect.
[center][size=7][font=Impact]Whisper of the Heart
[size=4]$10.00
[/size][/font][/size][left]One of the best animated films of all time, Yoshifumi Kondo exceeds Miyazaki in his directing abilities in this movie. (Yeah, I said it). The most exquisite, emotionally beautiful and wonderfully talkative films of all time.
[center][size=7][font=Impact]The Apartment
[size=4]$6.50
[/size][/font][/size][left]An okay film with some very dramatic flaws. Cute humane comedy and swell acting . . . but that's about it.

[left][b]UNFREAKING BELIEVABLE! An absolute gem! A masterpiece! Let me shower this baby some more because it DESERVES IT! Right off the bat, I was like "OK, this might be good." Then it totally delivered. I sound like a cliched local newspaper journalist, but seriously, you have to trust me on this one. I am so excited that I got to see this and, better yet, love it more than anything this year.[/b][/left]

[left][b]Couple complaints though . . .[/b][/left]
[left] [/left]
[left][b]Danny Boyle: I love your direction in this movie, but can you maybe tone it down? I didn't come to your move to get motion sickness. If you want to be Paul Greengrass, then get in line.[/b][/left]
[left] [/left]
[left][b]Academy: What the heck is wrong with you? Dev Patel deserved an Oscar nom like a camel doesn't need water. (METAPHOR!)[/b][/left]
[left] [/left]
[left][b]Frieda Pinto: Can you please be in this movie more? Your like there for twenty-five seconds, if that.[/b][/left]

[left][b]Oh, yes, and Inkheart sucked. MAJORLY. Please, please, please, do not see this movie. This book is the best thing written in the universe, no lie, and the movie is a piece of crap. Here's my problem with film adaptations, especially children's books: they try and shove EVERY LITTLE DETAIL that DOESN'T EVEN MATTER into the movie, and they leave out the actually important plotlines. Then, they dumb it all down to make it viable for the masses. In short, it's a McDonald's version of the original story that makes me incredibly sick. So stop it. I'm talking to the makers of Narnia, Inkheart, Alex Rider. Just stop it. Quit being idiots.[/b][/left]

Marley & Me

[CENTER][/CENTER][/SIZE]MARLEY AND ME[SIZE=7]


[LEFT]Yes, I saw it! Yes, I loved it! Yes, I'm writing a review!

If there ever was a enjoyable film, it's Marley and Me. I can't believe I'm giving this movie such a high number, but, in fact, it's a little chinzy considering how much I was MOVED during this. When the entire theatre is crying enough tears to end our two year drought, you know something is up. The only semi-melancholy part would be the ending, but even then it feels . . . justified? Crucial? Expected? Whatever it is, it all fits together to make an actual funny, enjoyable yet mature family film. Congratulations. 10/10

COMING TOMORROW . . . 3RD ANNUAL CONNIE AWARD NOMINATIONS! I just have to watch one last movie tonight.

The Day the Earth Stood Still

[b][size=3]Don't feel like some long reviews. Here are some quick ratings:

[center][size=7]10/10
[/size][left][b][size=3]I don't get it. 20 something percent? [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/smilies/confused.gif[/img] Am I the only person who thinks this movie is a sweet gift from the science fiction gods?
[/size][/b][center][size=7]QUANTUM OF SOLACE

[size=7]9/10
[/size][left][b][size=3]This movie is getting ragged on too much. It was pretty fun; fast cars, that's enough for me to enjoy a Bond movie.
[/size][/b][center][size=7]THE TALE OF DESPEREAUX
[/size][url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Taledesperaux.jpg"][img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/7/7b/Taledesperaux.jpg/200px-Taledesperaux.jpg[/img][/url]
[size=7]9/10
[/size][left][b][size=3]Actually really, really good. The critics are giving this the cold shoulder, but I say it's one of the freshest animated films in years. Full of vibrant colors and emotionally moving characters, it brings everything that's good about the book to life.[/size][/b][/left]
