This movie is so good I can't understand how it didn't get nominated for a Best Picture. I can't even remember the last time I saw a movie that made me cry. I was so moved by this movie that I will watch it over and over again.

I read the other comments, and the one that made the most sense to me was that this movie was bad because it wasn't like "The Shawshank Redemption". I don't think that is what they were trying to convey, but I guess I missed the point. I loved the story and the characters, and so did most of the audience. The dialogue was crisp and witty, the action was fast and well choreographed, and the story was riveting. The action scenes were of course well staged and well shot. I really enjoyed the character development of the characters. The characters were well developed, and I felt for them. There was not one character who I did not like, and most of the characters I had a crush on. The pacing of the movie was very good, and I did not have to fast forward through scenes to catch a new one. It was a great movie, and I would recommend it to anyone.

I was expecting a light, comic book movie but I was pleasantly surprised. The actors and director did a great job of bringing the story to life. There were no over the top or unnecessary scenes. The ending was perfect and the cast was perfect for the role. It was a good mix of realism and fantasy. I really enjoyed this movie and look forward to seeing it again.

Richard Harris is a man who really doesn't understand what is going on in the world around him. He's a man who was raised by his mother but it's been five years since he and his mother have been able to talk about things. The only thing that he has is a haunted house where he lives with his mother. He has no idea what is happening in the house and when he goes to go get some help, he finds it's too late. He then goes back to his house to try to understand what is happening and he discovers that things are really happening in the house. It's a strange movie with Richard Harris but it's good. I really liked it.

I just finished watching this movie with my mom, and after we were done watching it, she said that it was the best movie she ever saw. I also agree with her, it's an awesome movie. I really think that everyone should go and watch this movie at least once. I was impressed with this movie. I was shocked with the amount of violence that was shown in this movie. The amount of blood in this movie was so great. The actors that played the people in this movie, they did a great job. They did a good job portraying their characters. The movie also had great actors in it, and I would recommend this movie to everyone. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes to watch a great movie.

I'll begin by saying that I haven't seen the "soul-less" version of the movie. I thought it was bad but still have to say that the movie was good. It was a good watch and I am glad that I bought the DVD. I'm not a big fan of Clint Eastwood, but I do love his movies. I think that this was a great film. The story was good, the acting was good, and the scenery was great. I've never seen Clint Eastwood's western before and I was very impressed with this movie. I don't think I'll be seeing another Clint Eastwood western anytime soon. Overall, I thought it was a good movie. I gave it an 8 out of 10.

I first watched this film in the 1970's and really liked it. I am very impressed with it today. This film is a wonderful depiction of early western society and even more interesting is that it doesn't hide the fact that the West was run by a couple of blood thirsty outlaws who were as vicious and blood thirsty as they were. All of the movie takes place in the American West, the stars in this film are always on horseback, the landscape is so beautiful, and the characters are interesting. The story is simple, yet very interesting. The movie does not skimp on the action and has a great flow. I am not sure how much more can be said about this film other than it is a great Western film, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys western films.

This is a great movie. I had a few problems with it but I could overlook them. First, there are some major plot holes and inconsistencies that don't hold up to a second thought. For example, in one scene a man is rifling through a map and a woman, clearly a German, is standing next to him. He makes a note of her name and goes to go look for her, but not a second later he returns to find her out and about. Then in another scene he is told by a German man that he must kill a French soldier who is a prisoner. Why do they not just kill the German man? Why are they going through so much trouble to bring the Frenchman to the camp? Also, a lot of the dialogue is stupid and disjointed, making it hard to follow. For example, in one scene the German prisoner is saying to the French, "You must be the French enemy". Then in the next scene he is telling his fellow prisoners that he is the German, and the German prisoner is asking the Frenchman, "Do you speak French?". If the German is supposed to be the enemy, why are they not at all bothered by the fact that he doesn't speak French? Secondly, I found the romance between the two prisoners and the German woman annoying. This is not really a romance. She is only there to seduce him and he is not attracted to her, so he doesn't really care about her. I also thought that the character of the German soldier was pretty uninteresting, although he did play a significant role. The main problem is that I was not much impressed with the action scenes. The action was very badly choreographed, and the scenes of the prisoner's escape were also very poorly done. I think that the main reason I wasn't much impressed with this movie is that it was too slow. The film was way too long. I was also very impressed by the performances of the cast. Robert Downey Jr. did a very good job, but he was also the best part of the movie. I think that this is his best role to date. Willem Dafoe also did a good job, but I think that the character of the prisoner was very irritating. In the end, I really liked the movie, but it was not for me.

I can't believe I'm typing this. My stomach is hurting. Yes, I admit, it's a very difficult movie to watch. Yes, it's brutal. Yes, it's not for the faint-hearted. But, after having watched it, I am a bit more forgiving. Sure, there are some flaws. But, if you're looking for a riveting and thrilling Western, then this movie is for you. It's a beautiful, dream-like, dream-like world. I don't want to give away anything of the plot, but, I can assure you that the characters are very real and believable. And, for me, the final scene is what is so beautiful about the movie. It's about the child who just wants to see her father. The idea that he won't accept her anymore is so real and sad. And, when he realizes this, the emotions just come out. It's a beautiful film. It's a beautifully directed film. The scenery, the cinematography, everything is so amazing. I love it. I'm giving it a rating of 8 out of 10, because it's a beautiful film and I love it. I'm glad it's not for the faint-hearted. It's not for the weak hearted.

I guess I'm a little biased when it comes to John Wayne movies, but this one was more than an enjoyable film. It was a good movie. John Wayne is a man that has all the qualities of a good actor. He is a very realistic man, a man who is forced to put his personal life and his business life in a box, and is very "realistic". The movie itself is a real one, and was filmed by John Wayne himself, and is very realistic. The movie is about a good man who is trying to make it in the business. The part that I really enjoyed about the movie was that John Wayne didn't do this movie for the money, he did it for his friends. That is what really makes the movie really great, the friendship that John Wayne and his wife had with his wife and his friends. Also, John Wayne's character was a bit of a "Citizen Kane" character. He was a very handsome man, and very "realistic". I also liked the music that was in the movie. It was great. I also enjoyed the fact that John Wayne was the one that actually wrote the music. In the movie, John Wayne also does his own singing, and that adds to the film. In the end, I liked this movie because of the friendship and the friendship between John Wayne and his wife, who is the main character in the movie. All in all, this is a good movie. 8/10

This is one of the more touching movies I have ever seen. This movie tells the story of a young boy named Jack Swagger (Dylan Minnette) who comes to a town called The Wild West. In The Wild West there are three outlaws: Bob and Walter West (Dylan's Dad and stepfather) and his son Jack Swagger. They are hunters, thieves, and robbers. The town is run by Captain John C. Calhoun (John Goodman) and his son W.W. Calhoun (Donald Sutherland). When Jack swagger comes to town, he is welcomed and soon they start making fun of him and his brother and his dog. The Wild West is run by a spoiled millionaire named Robert Munger (Bruce Dern) and his wife Charlotte (Leslie Ann Warren). When Jack is killed in a gun battle, Captain Munger gets away with the gun and all that is left is the gunsmith, the guns, and Jack's rifle. Jack is buried in a graveyard and the town decides to bury Jack's body with the only thing left of him is his gun. Jack's spirit is never truly seen. I think that is the main reason why the movie is so emotional and touching. Jack is the one who gives his life to keep The Wild West free. As a father I can relate to this movie because I have a brother who is in a similar situation. When Jack swagger comes to town, he is introduced to Captain Munger and the Wild West and Jack sees the way things are run. Jack then starts to change, and as the movie goes on, we see that he is now more of a man. Jack has a hard time adjusting to The Wild West. When he sees the guns and the money, he feels that he can do anything. He wants to do anything he wants and when he kills his brother, he goes after The Wild West. This movie is a great movie, and the acting is amazing. This movie also teaches a lesson about family, and I really loved this movie.

First off, I loved this movie. It's a western with a twist. It's the first of it's kind to make the western genre a true modern masterpiece. It's a great movie, especially for the time it was made. I think this movie shows that, while it's been a while since movies like this were made, there are still movies out there that are considered classics. I'm not going to spoil anything for you but there is a good mix of action and romance. There are plenty of twists and turns throughout the movie but it all comes together nicely at the end. It's a great movie and I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes a western movie. It's a great movie and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a western movie.

I have seen "Sidney, Lot, and His Wife", "Tom and Jerry", "The Shadow", "The Movie", "The Producers", "The Hollywood Ten" and "The Player". Most of the movies are similar to each other in that they are all about a group of boys or men, who has to deal with the fact that their father has died or has to deal with a problem of some kind. But "Johnny Got His Gun" is different because the story is actually about a real person. It is about a man named Johnny Got His Gun (played by Anthony Hopkins) and it's about how he gets revenge on the people who killed his father. But the movie is not about revenge, it's about revenge against the people who murdered Johnny Got His Gun's father and his friend. So if you like a good revenge story then you should watch this movie. The film was directed by Joe D'Amato and the music by Richard Hell. It's a very good revenge story and it's a very good movie.

A fascinating portrayal of a criminal's life from an intelligent perspective. I was somewhat disappointed that the ending was far more "romantic" than what I expected. The great performances by Woody Harrelson, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, and Alicia Silverstone were all very convincing. The last scene was a bit off in my opinion, but I'm sure the movie-goers will feel that way when they see the movie. Some of the details of the story were not spelled out very well, and there were parts that were completely unnecessary. The ending was not at all what I had hoped for. The film-makers probably felt that it would be a bit of a cop-out and only give the audience an unsatisfying conclusion. I hope that the viewers of the movie will leave with a better understanding of the true meaning of death and that they will leave with a smile on their face, not a sour one. It was a good movie and I enjoyed it very much. I will definitely be watching it again. * out of *

In the summer of 1873, the renegade Sullivans (Wes Bentley) and his brothers send a young white boy named Delilah (Elijah Wood) to the "unceded territory" of the Seminole Indians in the Florida Keys. In the meantime, he works for his Uncle Bob (Jude Law) as a slave and occasionally is beaten by the Seminole. Delilah gets married to a white man and takes the name Rose (Claire Danes), and the couple raise their family as one white and one Seminole. The first of many Willie Daughters is a fascinating story of a family made up of two white people and two Seminole Indians. Rose's husband is also a slave, and there is some mention of white indentured servants in the family. The story moves slowly to a point where Delilah has a child, but the child is not a Willie Daughter and the wife is more inclined to leave her husband than to take the child. Eventually, she decides to raise the child as her own. She learns that she has a white husband and the child, and she also discovers that she has a slave. She takes the child back to the home of her brother and her uncle Bob, and they adopt the child. They decide to raise the child as a black man, and the child grows up as a slave. The two parents and the child all live as slaves in the plantation, where they raise the child as one of their own. Eventually, the mother is determined to leave the plantation, but she is never allowed to do so. She remains a slave, and when she eventually leaves, she is living in a small house in the woods. Eventually, the slave-owner, Sam (Gary Sinise), hires an agent to find the mother, but she is never found. At one point, she even disappears altogether, and her children try to find her. Eventually, she is found by a former slave and freed by him, but it is too late for her. The film ends with the child and her uncle, Rose, living on the plantation, where they raise their own family as one white and one Seminole. They call themselves "Bonnie and Clyde" and live on the plantation with their own kind of justice.

This is a very good western based on the stories of E.D. Mcneil and his men. It has the biggest cast I have ever seen, with a high percentage of the leading actors, although David Carradine and Adrienne Barbeau are there for a short time. The story has an interesting background, and a good ending. It is worth watching.

I saw this movie on the second day of its theatrical release, and it is not a movie that I have seen before. It is a fairly typical Western, with a number of stylistic and some funny elements. The story is about a western family who, on the night of the holiday, find themselves in the middle of a war between the Spanish and Mexican armies. The father, played by Al Pacino, is a man of a certain age, and is the only one who is willing to fight. He is killed in action, and his young son is left to raise him. In the midst of this conflict, the mother takes in a young man who is blind, and he is raised by the family. The mother is very strict, but the father does not even seem to mind. The son is very eager to join the army, and the mother is very strict about him, and is willing to let him be killed if he is caught. The brother and sister, played by Kevin Bacon and Anna Paquin, are also very strict about the family, but are able to help the brother in a way that they never thought possible. The story is somewhat predictable, and there is no real action in the movie. However, it is still very entertaining, and the way it is told is very interesting. The film is worth seeing for the actor and actress, Al Pacino and Anna Paquin, and the director.

An experienced and gifted film maker who still finds the ability to write, direct and act has created a true classic, a film that draws from his personal experiences as a Vietnam war veteran and war photographer. This film is the most personal portrait of a life that has shaped his entire professional life. There are scenes that are reminiscent of his Vietnam War experiences in Vietnam, but also moments that remind the viewer of his family and his adopted home in America. It's one of those films that is not to be missed and highly recommended.

I just watched this movie last night and I'm not sure what to make of it. There are two sides to this movie - the viewpoint of a professional detective (Lorraine Bracco) and the viewpoint of a rancher (Steve James) who knows little about the law and the law enforcement and the town. Both sides seem to have different philosophies and they are not always in agreement with each other. But the movie is also funny and very well acted. Steve James plays a very nice and believable character who gets what he wants out of life. He is very intelligent and not one to "go to war" with anyone. He's very angry at people he knows, who he feels are not doing the right thing, and he tries to help them when he can. Lorraine Bracco is an excellent actress who does a wonderful job portraying the deep, private part of her character. I think that she is probably one of the few actresses who could play a woman who is so beautiful that she cannot help herself but to show her beauty in every single moment. I think that Steve James is very likable, but he also seems to be the perfect man. He is not just someone who gets what he wants. He is someone who is very self-aware. And he doesn't do bad things to anyone. He wants what is right. I think that if the film had been longer, the movie would have been better. The ending of the movie is a bit confusing and it's not clear who the good guy is and who the bad guy is. The movie moves along at a good pace and I didn't think that it was too long. I liked the film and I think that it was a very good film.

I read the book and found it to be a remarkable read, the book being a mixture of history and folklore. It was one of those books that if you read it, you know it is true. The movie took a totally different approach, it was more of a love story than a historical movie. There were no battles and battles were not even mentioned. The movie had more to do with the chemistry between the characters and the story was more centered around that. However, I must admit the film had some very intense moments that you could not take your eyes off of, and the dialogue was pretty good. The cast did an outstanding job, especially Joe Roth as Abraham, the actor who played him was fantastic. The only thing I would say that was bad in the movie was that the narration was pretty much nonexistent, I could not understand what was going on. Overall, a great movie that is definitely worth watching, I give it a 9/10.
