First off I am a huge fan of Keanu Reeves. He was truly amazing in Speed and Inception and as I have seen more and more of him lately he really gives me the impression that he is one of the greatest actors today. The film is definitely one of his best. It is very slow at times and doesn't offer any real action or thrill. But I must say that this film is truly touching. It is also very funny. Some may say this film has no story but I have to disagree. I believe this film has one of the best endings that I have ever seen in any film. The film is well paced and even though the beginning isn't that amazing you still end up with a lot of surprises that will keep you entertained. The acting is good as well. They are all very good. This is definitely a great film and I recommend it. But don't listen to the bad critics. I give it a 7/10

I was surprised to see that there was a backlash against this movie. I found the story to be a compelling one and the acting to be pretty good. However, I found myself unable to see the point of the film except as a kind of forced "redemption" of a man's life. I did not find myself compelled to give this movie any weight in my own life. I don't think it is a "great movie", but I didn't find it to be a failure either. I am just wondering if the mainstream press, film critics, and audiences are more confused than the average person would care to admit.

I was so happy to see the film coming to Broadway, I'm hoping it's a hit. The musical is not a musical in the traditional sense of a Shakespeare play. It's a story about romance, and how different people experience love in different ways. It is very close to the book in some places, and has some great lines and performances from the cast. I have to admit, I thought the casting was great. I'm not a big fan of Ryan Reynolds, and his accent didn't do much for me, but it was still good. Most of the lines were believable, and the acting was really good. I am not a fan of Sofia Vergara, and she was very good, but she was not the best choice to play Audrey. They tried to add some humor into the story, but it wasn't really necessary. I loved the idea of Audrey being a pretty good dancer, and I thought it was a good touch. All in all, it was a good movie, if you can stomach the romantic music. 7/10

With this film, the general trend of filmmaking has been going downhill. When you have a person like this, you can't let anyone else in on the secret. I think that it's a wonderful film, especially for women in the 1960's. The main character played by Maggie Gyllenhaal, is a prostitute who has an affair with a wealthy businessman (Richard Dreyfuss). She hires the young boy to be her bodyguard, but the young boy falls in love with her. I think that the film is really sad, but it's a fantastic film for women. I think it's a great film and a wonderful film for women. I also think that this film is a great film for men, because it's all about the men. It's really great for men and it's a great film for women.

I've just watched the DVD version of this movie and it is by far one of the most beautiful and heart-wrenching movies I've ever seen. I'm not normally one to like such movies but this one is definitely my favorite. Even if it is a little bit to long, this movie is still worth your time and it is very sad and emotional. A movie that not only portrays the difficulties of being a single parent, but of life itself. The character of Lola is one that you can identify with and sympathize with. The movie is very, very touching and I think a great movie.

I loved this movie so much. I am a big fan of Rachel Weisz and always have been. In this movie, I was able to relate to her character and the emotions she was feeling. I loved the relationship between the two and also the relationship between Ewan McGregor and Rachel Weisz. I just love the look on Rachel Weisz face when she is looking at Ewan McGregor. I also thought Rachel Weisz was great in this movie and I have seen her in so many other movies. I hope to see more from her. I think this is a great movie and will be buying the DVD soon.

I love to watch movies that delve into the psychology of characters, and as someone who has had an addiction to drugs, I really appreciated this film. I would have given it an 8.5, but it was a little too self-indulgent. I think this could have been a little more realistic about how people have the emotional reactions they do to drugs. Some of the scenes are just horrible. If you think about this movie, you can understand how the characters would react to things they'd never think about. But if you want to enjoy the movie for its humor, you'll probably be disappointed.

I liked the film because it had a style that I have not seen before. I would never say this is a masterpiece, but I enjoyed it. I thought it was well made and very interesting. I thought the cast did a great job. I think this is the first film I have ever seen that I am able to recommend to my friends. I think I will see it again.

Finally a movie that's not burdened by high school cliches, and is all about truth, integrity, and respect. Teens of all ages will appreciate this story. I think it was good for the two younger girls, especially their eyes, but anyone older than 10 would probably hate it. I enjoyed the story, the actors, the feel of the movie, the scenery. But I will be VERY surprised if anyone over the age of 15 actually likes it. Most likely it is rated PG-13 so I doubt many people will go to see it.

I was taken by surprise by the good film-making of this film. I thought it would be another cliche romance film. I was surprised at how much this movie was actually entertaining. The acting is fine and the characters are well drawn and expressive. It is even funny. It is as if the film makers managed to get away with a few trims and a few less jokes. The film plays a little like an indie film, without all the indie tricks. It is worth watching, because it is a great story and it is very entertaining.

How could anyone not know that Jackie Baker played the lead role? He's such a great actor and you can't help but be drawn to him. He was a wonderful and endearing young man, just the right age. The movie was good, but I do not understand why it was not nominated for Oscars. It was good, but not great. But as I said, it's Jackie. It's hard for a movie to really stand out when the actors are so good. I am surprised that it did not win for best picture. It was a good movie, but not a great one.

A good drama with a twist. In a different fashion of my last review. The twist is not the story itself. It's just a bit different. My problem is with the flow of the film. It drags. We are sitting through a long journey of grief and regret for some events which were not even real. It gets a bit tiring after awhile. I felt cheated. A definite must watch for the director and actors.

The first time I saw this movie, I thought it was rather boring, but I just watched it again after it had aired on TV, and it seemed to pick up some of the sentiment in the previous viewing. Not quite as much as I'd remembered, but it was still a pretty good movie. It is definitely worth a look. Great actors, great acting, great setting, great story, great setting, great music, great costumes, great directing. What more could you ask for in a movie?

It's not the best film of all time, but it's a real treat and a fine love story. The cast is excellent with a very strong supporting cast. The performances by the two leads are excellent, but that's not to say that the rest of the cast is all that great. The directing is flawless. The cinematography is excellent. The score is just amazing. The lighting is good. The set design is wonderful. The editing is really good. The lighting and sound effects are really good. I liked the story and the direction, and the characters. It's not the best movie of all time, but it's one of the best romantic movies I've ever seen.

This movie deals with the lives of ordinary people in everyday life. The main character, a middle-aged woman named Mary, is trying to live life to the fullest by being very kind, giving and nurturing. Her husband, William, a small-time salesman, can't be bothered to find a job and lives with his father-in-law. Mary's best friend, Denise, a black women, is a talented musician and a good actress. Mary also likes to dance. One day, Denise says she has to move away, to her parents' house, a little town in Louisiana, for a while, to go to graduate school. Mary wants to come along. She tells William that she doesn't want to move away, but she must learn a new language, so she can go to the dentist. The former business partner of William, who goes by the name of Perry, says he will help her, because he lives in a big city and has a job. But, he's not the sort of person who wants to help. The only people he knows are a prostitute and a priest who is supposed to help her. When the two of them meet again, Mary is very grateful to him, but he says he can't help her because he doesn't have a job. She is desperate to go to the dentist. Mary finds her way in the town and has a whole new world of experiences. "Touched with Fire" is a very good film, as it is based on a novel. It shows us ordinary people living in a life of typical everyday things. It deals with the struggles of living in the world, of having to make decisions about things that may not seem important to us, but are very important to the people around us. The actors in this movie are very good. It is interesting to watch how they come up with new kinds of jokes and different stories. I love the way the camera works. There are no frequent shots of Mary walking along the street, talking on the phone or doing something, but a continual slow-motion shot of her getting ready for a dance. The look of the camera moves like a dancing striptease. If you want to know more about this movie, you can read the novel of the same title by Joan Didion, which is the basis of the movie. My vote is seven. Title (Brazil): "Avenir de Caos" ("Away from Chicago")

SPOILERS. SPOILERS. I think the main flaw in this film is that it doesn't have a complete ending. We don't really know what happens to the lovers or whether they're still together or not. I think they could've had more closure. I think there should have been more closure on the part of the dead lovers as well. In my opinion, I think it would have been better if they made them part of a play together before they died. It would have made more sense. The cinematography is nice and the acting is great. I really enjoyed this film. I loved the fact that they took a simple love story and put it into a very dark movie. I really enjoyed the message it was sending. It was very well done.

I don't want to spoil this movie for anyone. It was a very good movie. Some people will not like it. I thought the story was excellent. The actors all played well. The director did a great job. I can't wait to see it again. I think the movie was done perfectly. All I have to say is "GO SEE IT!"

This movie is about a man, Tom, who dies on a beach, but he has one last chance to try to save his dying friend, Mike, by touching him. Tom is the younger brother of Mike, the nephew of the world famous singer, Hal. Mike is the artist's brother and Hal's son, in a way. Mike's mother, Betty, is angry because she wants to sell Mike's father's house. Mike sees Tom at a show and he takes his friend with him to sell the house. They meet each other and they begin to grow closer. But what would be the point? Tom is the best of friends, but Mike's family believes that he's in love with a woman from Tom's own family. But that's not true. Tom is Tom's brother, but Mike is a man and has a wife and two children. So Mike's family does not trust Tom. The story is very good and I would recommend it. But the ending is a little bit silly.

The movie is an excellent reflection of how the social hierarchy, society and culture can affect someone in many different ways. I would recommend this movie to anyone who would like to see a realistic, somewhat true-to-life portrayal of society in the twentieth century. Also, there are many scenes, which are genuinely sad. The movie, like the book, is in a style similar to "I, Claudius".

. This was a pretty good movie. The plot was pretty simple. The story is simple, it's about two gay teenagers who have a crush on each other. Now I know that's not exactly a new plot, but it was well done and it's one of the better movies I've seen this year. The story was interesting and I did get a few chuckles from the beginning. This movie had a pretty good plot and I thought that most of the actors did a good job in the role. The movie definitely had some gross parts. It had a few sexual things in it that I don't mind, but it was a little to much. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone, it's good, but there are a few parts that I wouldn't recommend to anyone, even though it's not really too bad.

I've never been so impressed by a film in my life. This film had me in tears of happiness. It was a little bit too long, but not really enough to be a hindrance. I do recommend it for the fact that it is truly a true story. It really makes you think about life and what you do to make sure that you live your best life. The film is told with a very realistic story, which is a little bit long. But that is what makes it so worth seeing.

It's almost always the case that movies with a "gay" subtext are pretty badly written. While this movie was certainly not so, it is still very good. It has a good plot, has some interesting dialog, and has some of the best lines in the movie. The problem is that it is very hard to tell where the love/hate angle is going to take place. And this doesn't come off as too difficult to figure out, when you can simply look at the people around them and see them as people. Although, it is only hard to figure out in the first half of the movie, once you figure it out, it becomes much easier. Of course, all the hate is made of a carnal nature, which makes it less believable. However, it was interesting to see how the love angle would work, and it's interesting to see how each character would react, once they were convinced of it. If you want a good movie about love and hate, this is one you should check out.

The movie starts off with a fantastic and moving scene in the middle of the rain. The scene is used to say that the beginning is important. At the very end, the character of the narrator says that the beginning is important. That's a metaphor for how the movie is about the beginning. The movie is about his beginning. It's also about how he finds out that he has a mother, a sister, a wife, a brother, and a lover. It's also about the relationship between him and the girls. This movie was very sad at the end. There was a lot of sadness in the movie, and the use of the rain was a nice way of showing how much the director cared about the beginning of the movie. When the rain starts, it's a cool visual but it's not until the very end that we see how the rain feels.
