If you were to take the most annoying, illogical and infuriating rom-com that you've ever seen and throw it in a blender with music by Wham!, some decent moments from a charming rom-com, add an attractive and talented actress playing a thoughtless, selfish, unlikeable character, mix it up with a lousy script written by the brilliant Emma Thompson, with warm direction by the guy who made Bridesmaids, Spy, and A Simple Favor (all wonderful, and all much better) and you'd get Last Christmas. It's an irritating mess with a well hidden almost imperceptible "heart" of gold. It's not a good movie, but it does have its moments and if you watch with very low expectations, you may not demand those 2 hours back. For those who grade Hallmark Christmas movies on a curve (as I do), it's like a good meal in a run down ugly restaurant, or a bad meal in a beautiful restaurant with a view. I'm watching it a second time and can't turn away.
Hard to give an unbiased review of this classic which included great performances by many of my all time favorite musicians in their prime. A truly wonderful experience for music lovers.
One of the best concert films ever made. Fascinating.
This is one of the greatest historical dramas ever made. It was directed by Stanley Kubrick, written by Dalton Trumbo and stars Kurt Douglas and Lawrence Olivier in iconic performances. Behind the scenes, Douglas insisted on Dalton Trumbo despite the fact that he was on a McCarthy era blacklist. That determination to do the right thing regardless of the risk was essentially the theme of the movie.
The best subversive comedy ever made with many great quotes
Arthur: I am your king!
Woman: Well I didn't vote for you!
Arthur: You don't vote for kings!
Woman: Well 'ow'd you become king then?
(holy music up)
Arthur: The Lady of the Lake-- her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite,
held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by
divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why
I am your king!
Man: (laughingly) Listen: Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords
is no basis for a system of government! Supreme executive power
derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some... farcical
Arthur: (yelling) BE QUIET!
Man: You can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some
watery tart threw a sword at you!!
Brilliant Stanley Kubrick masterpiece. One of the best films in history. Peter Sellers is great in multiple roles. My favorite line: "Gentlemen, You Can't Fight In Here! This is The War Room!"
I've loved Italia Ricci ever since Designated Survivor. She's beautiful and fun to watch in this kinda but not quite remake of Roman Holiday (the movie focuses on her life as the actress as she films the remake). I didn't really buy the chemistry between her and the lead actor but I did like the relationship between her and her younger sister. We need more movies with Italia Ricci. Hallmark needs to find her a better costar. Fun Fact: the hotel room in the movie is the actual hotel room where Audrey Hepburn stayed when she was filming Roman Holiday.
One of the best Christmas movies of all time and the best movie that Bruce Willis ever made. Alan Rickman was fantastic as the bad guy. Live Free or Die Hard was the best sequel.
My favorite Audrey Hepburn movie. She's utterly charming and delightful. It's a timeless classic that probably would have ended differently had it been made this century. Check out Hallmark's Rome in Love with the beautiful Italia Ricci playing an actress filming a remake of Roman Holiday (thereby avoiding the thankless task of actually remaking a classic). The hotel room that the character stays in is actually the same room that Audrey Hepburn stayed in when she was filming Roman Holiday.
A classic high school comedy that I watched again with my daughter on the big screen during a special 30th anniversary showing. Lots of laughs and lots of fun. Matthew Broderick has never been cooler and Mia Sara was lovely to watch. The parade scene was insane and ridiculous but also thoroughly enjoyable.
Very funny high school movie with Phoebe Cates in one of the hottest scenes ever included in a mainstream movie
This Tina Fey classic is very funny and easily one of the best movies about high school ever made. Lindsay Lohan was still likable but her co-stars (Rachel McAdams as Regina George, Lacey Chabert as Gretchen Wieners, and Amanda Seyfried as Karen Smith) really helped make the movie truly great. And who would have guessed that all three are now more successful than Lohan.
This belongs on a list of the best high school movies ever made alongside Mean Girls, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Emma Stone is wonderful.
I'm not embarrassed to admit that I really enjoyed "La La Land". I'm actually not a fan of musicals (although I did enjoy watching the High School Musical movies with my kids). I prefer the Godfather, Bourne, and Lord of The Ring movies; and romantic comedies like Annie Hall, Roman Holiday and Princess Bride; and classics like Casablanca.
But "La La Land" lifted my spirits, made me smile and had me swaying in my seat. It was gorgeous, romantic, wonderful and heartbreaking to watch. The song and dance routines seemed to burst right out of the screen and it all evoked a lot of emotions in me, especially that amazing ending. And Emma Stone is just glorious and gifted (I also highly recommend seeing her in "Easy A"- still my favorite Emma Stone movie, although she was also amazing in "Birdman").
Powerful and emotionally evocative. It's a compelling, fascinating, and true story of a boy who got lost and years later tried to find his way home. We often get caught up in our First World problems. We could all benefit from occasionally taking note of Third World problems, and of the universality of strong family bonds throughout the World. A must see film, especially if you liked Slumdog Millionaire (Dev Patel starred in both). The 8 year old actor Sunny Pawar was amazing. Nicole Kidman was heartbreakingly real.
Clinton Eastwood's crowning achievement and the best Western ever made.
