It's an okay movie. I don't understand why some people hate it so much. This is a film for the 90's and beyond, not a movie for the 80's. It's not meant to be a documentary. I really enjoyed this film. I liked how it was filmed. I liked how it made me feel. It did a really good job of being a drama and a character study. It didn't need to be so dramatic. I also liked how the characters were portrayed. They weren't the stereotypical bad guys or the stereotypical good guys. They were just ordinary people. I also liked how it was filmed. I liked how the film makers portrayed their surroundings. They weren't the typical Hollywood extras or the stereotypical crime film people. I also liked the acting. I thought Matthew McConaughey was good. He didn't have to say much to be good. He played his part well. Ryan Gosling was good. He had some good scenes, but he wasn't fantastic. Jennifer Lawrence was good. She had some great scenes, but I don't like her character in the film. Danny Huston was decent. He didn't have much to do in the film. Jude Law was good. He had some good scenes. Liam Neeson was great. He had some great scenes. The thing I liked best about the film was how it was filmed. The pacing was perfect. It was a good film. It had a great story and was very well made. I think you'll like it. I enjoyed it. It wasn't a classic, but it was well made.

I really liked this film, the characters were original, and the story really got to me. Although it may be a bit preachy at times, I found the message quite beautiful. I just wonder if it was really intended as a dramatic movie, or if it was just supposed to be a kind of a wake up call for those of us who are in our 20's and 30's, or those who have been in abusive relationships. I'm a strong believer in the "less is more" philosophy. The guy who has been abused as a child who decided to end it was so funny. It just seems like he had more power than he knew what to do with. He was intelligent, and so much like a 13 year old. I thought the ending was great. I don't think I'm a kooky film lover, but I have to say I enjoyed this film. I thought it was very realistic, and in a sense that it was so true to life, it kind of reminded me of the feelings that I have experienced in my life, such as my abusive parents, or the abusers. I thought that the actors were very good, and it was a great script. I don't think I would recommend it for a film lover because of the way the film was shot, but I think it is worth a watch.

I was hesitant to even see this movie, as it has one of the worst reviews I have ever seen. So I decided to check it out, and it was a perfect choice. It was a nice change from the usual teen musicals that are getting more popular every year. In fact, I do believe that more movies should be about actual people, rather than movies about a person or a group of people. The actors are actually very good in this movie, and the music fits the movie perfectly. Overall, a very good movie, especially for fans of hip hop.

I love to watch things that reflect a certain kind of life. I don't get frustrated and confused about a movie because I can't connect with the characters, but here in this film, everything seems to connect in the right places. I love this film because it is about love. In a very humble way, I think it is a great film. I think everyone who watched this film, loved it. I love this film because it is so true to life. It is what really happens in life. It is about life. We are all born with different talents, no matter who you are. When a person is born, they will naturally reach a certain level. They will naturally be talented. What is talent? What is talent not? What is talent that you can show off to the world? What is talent that you don't have to show off to the world? I think this film tells you that. The fact that you are talented is just natural. This film has so many profound messages, but if you watch it, I guarantee that you will learn a lot. It has a good message, but it also has a lot of depth and complexity. I don't understand why people don't like this film. It is a very deep film and the message is a great message. It is a message that everyone can understand. It is the essence of life. A message about love. This film is very inspirational. A movie that every person who watched this film, should watch. 9/10

This film was great. It was shot beautifully, it was as if the director of photography was a fly on the wall of the band during recording sessions. The story was compelling and the music was superb. I was most impressed by the film's cinematography, the lighting, the color/shading, and the sound. The opening scene in the house with the band practicing and recording the song "Forever" was a real eye-opener for me. There were a lot of shots in the beginning of the film that gave the viewer a clear idea of where the movie was going. As the story progressed, I felt as if I were watching a play or musical instead of watching a documentary. The cinematography was incredible and I really appreciated how well the music was recorded. I am going to see this film again and will be ordering a copy of the soundtrack CD to add to my collection. If I do not find this movie, I will most likely purchase it and add it to my collection. I am looking forward to watching "Sole Survivor" as well.

If you're a fan of Woody Allen you should check out this movie. As a fan I think this movie is pretty good. Even the characters in the movie are likable. The plot is an example of how good this movie is. They basically go back in time to the time of Bob Dylan, Dylan meets Allen, and then they go back to the time of Dali and then back to the time of Brahms. This movie has a lot of brilliant dialogs. The camera work is amazing. In my opinion the only part of the movie that isn't amazing is the ending. I thought it was a bit short. I think if it ended a little bit earlier I think that the ending would have been very amazing. Also, the ending of this movie is unique and it's kinda sad but it's a good movie. I recommend this movie to everyone.

After watching the trailer I expected a horrible film that would not make me cry, but instead it was one of the best films I have seen in a long time. I am not sure if the plot is original or if it is like many other films but it was very moving and great to see a romantic drama. I am not a fan of great romantic films but this one was different. The acting is great, and I liked the romance and the music. I would recommend this film to anyone that is looking for a great film that will have you going "awwwwwww" for 2 hours. A lot of the drama in the film was staged and true to life, which I believe is a good thing. If you have not seen this film, see it now!

The film focuses on a family whose life is intertwined with a baseball team, though it's more of a musical. The film was directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet (House of cards, Moulin Rouge). The story follows a young and ambitious musician who is recruited into a group of young musicians, and has to learn the ropes of the professional world. Soon, he finds out that the people he's competing with are essentially nothing but children in disguise. This is a very challenging, yet fascinating film. The story is really interesting, with it being somewhat confusing at times. There is a great use of black and white, which creates a sense of claustrophobia. This film is truly well written. There is plenty of emotion, and the story is filled with suspense. The acting is fantastic. The cast is wonderful, with such an amazing ensemble. James Franco is excellent as the lead. There is an amazing performance by Peter Dinklage, who I actually think is quite underrated. There is a great performance by the likes of Jessica Lange, as well. They all do great jobs, and really make their characters shine. The soundtrack is absolutely magnificent, and the sound design really helped to enhance the film. The cinematography is also really well done. The story itself is very complex, and the film is both entertaining and amazing. I would recommend this film to anyone. 9/10.

Shine is a musical comedy about two twenty-something friends. One has just lost his job. His life has become one of drinking, drugs and self-indulgence. The other is a recent college graduate who is struggling to find his identity in the world. One day while both are drinking they accidentally stumble across a nude, very young, beautiful woman. They instantly fall in love and decide to run away together to live in the wilds of Africa. The story is done beautifully. It has a story that could easily happen. However, it is beautifully and delicately told. The characters are all wonderfully drawn, I could see each one as if I were in their shoes. The music is wonderful. The lyrics are beautifully written. The dialogue is very clever and heart-warming. In conclusion, Shine is a film that captures your heart and is guaranteed to change you forever. A must see!

Wonderful film. Beautiful production. Beautiful visuals. Wonderful acting. The film is full of "realism". It has both a happy and tragic ending. But, the music is something you won't forget. I hope to see more films like this one. It is truly an inspiration to make films that do not disappoint. A must-see. I recommend it to all.

I absolutely loved this film. I could not help but applaud it for so many reasons, not the least of which was the cast. This was a film made for everyone, and it was done with a heart and soul. I loved the light-hearted songs, the movie, and the performances. I'm a Christian but I could not help but feel that the film was about Jesus, and he was great in his role, but that the story didn't really show that part of the story. I do have one major problem, and it's that I felt that there were too many unnecessary deaths in the movie. For example, the funeral for Judy. That's just one, and by the end of the movie, it doesn't seem like there was any connection between her and the people that were killed. I think if it was all done with more action, and less deaths, the movie would have been more enjoyable, as it should be. Overall, I loved this film and highly recommend it to anyone.

This film is awesome. In all honesty it would have to be on of my all time favorite movies. This film is amazing, in a non positive way. It is by far the best teen movie I have ever seen. I have seen enough movies to have seen the 90's, 90's. This film is perfection in it's simplicity. If you are a young person that loves movies, this is a must see!

What are you waiting for? Behold the mighty brilliance of Shakira, the biggest pop star in the world! Her gifts of dancing, singing and lyrics are breathtaking. Her fluttery voice as she sings the beautiful American folk songs makes you feel like it is truly just a music video, not a movie. Brilliantly directed, the movie is a triumph of the best of modern era of cinema. It is a complete wonder for the actors, who can work together with such ease. Rania, the love interest, brings a great deal of versatility and it is so refreshing to see that in a movie, she isn't just the love interest, but actually she brings a lot of depth to the movie. Plus, she is the only one who has really given a strong performance. This is the type of movie that everyone should see, it is definitely not your typical Hollywood fare. I have loved this movie since the first time I saw it, and it is still the greatest movie I have seen, and I'm counting down the days to the next one.

I love the music in this movie, and the shots are beautiful. The story line is good and well thought out. It is different from the musical theater movies we are used to see. It is the music that makes this movie stand out in my mind. The musical that inspired this movie is "Fiddler On The Roof". I have seen this movie several times and I am still listening to it the next day. One of my favorite movies is "Othello", but I can't help but think "White Lightnin'" is one of the best musicals ever made. It is a musical and it is done right. A masterpiece!

The movie has been incredibly over rated, especially since there are many more beautiful actresses with more talent than Paltrow and Hoffman. Its a shame that this movie is being given such good reviews. As I said, it is a beautiful movie but I think it is being over rated. I just wish the movie had been more impressive and emotional, especially considering all of the expectations this movie has been given. The story is not that great, just a simple story with some spark. I thought it was the best part of the movie, but the last 15 minutes ruined the movie for me. Overall, I think the movie is worth a watch, and I think it is a movie that has been given a bad review.

What a fabulous film, once again.I saw this at the MOMA in Los Angeles and it was beyond brilliant. A great piece of cinema. I truly enjoyed it. I agree that it is a sad movie, but a beautiful one. Yes, it's dark, but it is also light, and so it is the director's choice. I want to see more of these filmmakers, they are the "new" generation of filmmakers. I also liked the music, and the lighting, and the music is the soundtrack to the film. It is not a soundtrack. It is the soundtrack to the film. I think this film is a beautiful ode to humanity. It is sad, but it is also beautiful. I am very proud to have watched this movie.

Flynn Fox is a wonderful actress. However, I was really surprised to see how good she was in this movie. She was in a high profile movie at the same time as she was filming a film for adults. It's the ultimate role model for those who want to do something different and don't have all the skills of the actresses they're playing. She plays the role so well it's almost scary. The movie is more about what the character of Lila, her dad, wants to do than what she wants to do. He's kind of the anti hero and there are some funny moments that I really enjoyed. Also, the movie is very emotional and some scenes are emotional to me. I would recommend this movie for those who love drama. If you're not a fan of movies that are dramatic or are looking for a movie that will make you laugh, this isn't it. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good movie and a good acting. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who likes something different. It's a great movie.

I'm a big fan of Sissy Spacek and wanted to see this film. This is one of my favorite films and probably my favorite film of all time. The cinematography is incredible. The score is intense and haunting. A true statement of the power of music. There is a lot of dialogue and symbolism, which makes this film feel more real than many other music films. The music score is nothing short of spectacular. You will not be disappointed.

On a whim, i decided to see a bunch of indie movies. and i found this one on its first day. i've never felt such a connection with a movie before, i have to say. the music of the film is perfect and the use of camera is beautifully in-lined with the direction and performances. so, the plot, story and screenplay are completely one-sided. The first scene is stunningly beautiful and reminds me a lot of the scene from the film 'afternoon delight', without the violence. and, it's also based on a book. but, i could have seen the plot too if i had read the book. on another note, i'm a huge fan of Alice Cooper, so i was feeling disappointed that the movie didn't contain him. i was also feeling like he didn't get enough screen time. but, i have to admit i really liked it. The music is very haunting, the cinematography is beautiful, and the performances are outstanding. i could hardly believe this was a very young, yet talented artist who is now, almost 20, and it still looks like he's a child. and, the young actors were just so great. i couldn't stop my tears every time they played their roles. and, i don't think i will ever stop crying when i watch this film. this is the first time i have cried watching a movie. this is a must-see!

In the first half of the movie, I was getting so bored and really, I was wondering if I should stop watching. But then it just gets better. Once the movie starts to get serious, I start to get hooked, it's a very interesting and moving movie. It's hard to describe the feeling, but I do know it is addictive. Some of the scenes, especially the death of the main character, made me feel really sad. I also loved the part where the boy and his mother don't know each other. I really don't know why it was nominated for Oscars, it just wasn't that good. But I recommend watching it. I think you will like it.
