This movie is a fine effort by the great director Peter Weir, and it's interesting to see how he managed to tell a story so rich in emotion. What's the "meaning" of life? Where do we get the energy to live? How do we decide to "live"? These questions and many others are explored in this movie, with great accuracy. The story is a little bit long, but it's done well. It's worth seeing for those who like historical films, and for those who like epic dramas.

I think a lot of people expected too much from this movie. The story had so many subplots going on. And, yes, the music was too much in this movie. I thought the music was the thing that would have helped the story. I liked the fact that the characters are so smart, and the director was smart in directing the scenes. I liked the acting in this movie, especially from Wahlberg. The fight scenes were really good. There was a lot of emotion in this movie. The movie was really good. I liked it. I hope there will be more movies like this one. I really enjoyed this movie.

The second half of The Meanest Man in Texas is somewhat of a letdown, but it's still a good film. Michael Caine is excellent as a life-long troublemaker who is convinced that he is an angel sent to his country by God. He even has the audacity to mock the "White Man's Burden" that people in the western world are supposedly burdened with. The movie then switches gears from "history" to "myth" and shows the truth of the mens' beliefs in a way that is at times uncomfortable to watch. The truth of this whole idea of "white man's burden" was never a secret to anyone, it was just accepted by the white man, and Caine's portrayal of it was meant to be taken in a positive light. The whole concept of God sending angels to America was also a part of the story that was never brought up, but the movie did a good job at portraying it as it is, something that would have been done better in the earlier parts of the movie. The music is great throughout, especially when the angels are singing and it's really good to hear such great, great, great music in a movie like this. The movie is very well-done, but the ending was very weak, but I'll be honest, I'm not one who likes to see the end of a movie very weakly. Overall, The Meanest Man in Texas is a good film that deserves to be watched. The acting was great, the photography was great, and the music was great, but the ending was very weak, and it made the movie a bit underwhelming. 7/10

As with so many biopics, the best way to view the film is to think of it as a "living" biography. This is probably because the actor playing Martin Luther King, Jr. was simply an actor playing a real person, albeit an almost unrecognizable one, which makes him a perfect person to take on the role. This is not to say that all of the people who played MLK were great, but at least they gave the role the character it deserved. All the actors and actresses who played MLK did a great job. But I thought that the great job was all done by actor Aaron Eckhart. He played MLK as a completely convincing real person, not a "bimbo" or a "good guy". I was especially impressed with him in that scene where he plays a recording of his own voice. That was a great moment for me because I had never heard that kind of music before and had no idea what it was supposed to be. Aaron Eckhart is definitely one of the best actor's in this century. In addition to his work on this film, he also did a great job on "The Purple Rose of Cairo", another biopic that I saw last year. In fact, I'd say that "The Meanest Man in Texas" was his best work to date. My personal opinion is that Aaron Eckhart is the best thing in this film. He was amazing, and I can't wait for the next film of his. 8/10

Cameron Crowe's "The Meanest Man in Texas" tells the story of two white men, James Earl Jones and Vincente Minnelli, who are in Texas at the beginning of the Civil War, but they don't speak to each other. They are both in the service, but Jones is serving in the Union army, while Minnelli is serving in the Confederate army. They are both members of a Confederate regiment, and they are both essentially good men. They are both married to each other, and they are both men of honor. But they have different ideas about what they believe. Jones is for equality and justice. Minnelli is for racial justice. Jones believes that all men are equal. Minnelli believes that all men are equal. They have a bitter, personal argument about their beliefs, and when they are both in a field in a hot desert, Jones hits Minnelli over the head with a rifle, and Minnelli dies. This is an incredibly sad and dark film. It's both shocking and upsetting to watch. It's about two men who are fundamentally good people who have different ideas about the way the world should be, and how the world should be. It's a really interesting film. It's very good. It's not a great film, but it's really good.

While it was not a huge movie, it was very well done. This is a great story that was told well and it is definitely worth the time and money to watch. The film features a great performance by Michael Caine and the supporting cast is also very good. What I found most interesting is that I never saw this film mentioned on any of the current TV or movie channels. I did see it once on the movie channel and I still remember how much it brought back the memories of the 1950's. There is definitely a great story in here, but I would recommend watching it for the acting and not the story.

We're back with another update of the movie "The Meanest Man in Texas". This time around the plantation owner of the time is a slave and his son is the one who ends up being the meanest of the bunch. The movie is all about slavery and how the slave owners will do anything to keep their slaves and how the slaves were treated in the mean time. I really enjoyed this movie and I was very interested in the story line and what happened. I thought that it was very interesting and I was shocked when the movie ended. I really enjoyed this movie and I was very surprised when the movie ended. I recommend this movie for everyone who is interested in the slavery and the movies of the era.

I like to read the book when it comes out and I enjoy seeing the movie adaptation. In general, I liked the movie and it was just as good as the book. As with the book, it was set in the 40's and centered on the story of Judge Amos and the trials that would follow. The movie version didn't take as long as the book to get into the character of Judge Amos, and the end of the movie was even more enjoyable than the book. I liked the style of the movie and the dramatic set pieces that followed the story of Amos and the Judge. The movie had some nice visuals and the music score was a nice addition to the movie. I liked the feel of the movie and felt it was a more effective way to tell the story of Amos and the Judge than the book. The film wasn't perfect, but it was still enjoyable. I'd recommend this movie for anyone who enjoys movies with a strong story line. I would recommend it to anyone who has ever read the book or seen the movie and has enjoyed the movie.

I did not read the book by Al Gore and I am not a fan of George W. Bush but I have to say I was impressed by the movie. The acting was superb and I had a great time watching the movie. The story was very entertaining and told in a way that was very interesting. This movie did not disappoint me and it did not disappoint me at all.

When I was 10 years old, my father gave me a videotape of "Million Dollar Baby", the movie that changed my life. At the time, I was a curious kid and I was impressed with the sheer amount of talent involved. The film took the typical hero's journey and gave the audience a peek into the world of boxing and the "real" world. It took a while to let me get into it, but once I did, it was like a breath of fresh air. The plot of this film is more of a melodramatic tale than anything else. It's about a man named Wayne Hobbs (Humphrey Bogart) who has a childhood story to tell. He is the youngest and most gifted boxer in Texas. He is so good that he has a title in the sport of boxing and is also regarded as a great fighter. The story is told by a narrator, who talks about Wayne's upbringing and how he was influenced by his father. The narrator is told that he is telling the truth, which is why we are told that the story is based on fact. This story is told in flashback form, so that we can get a feel for how Wayne got to where he is now. The first half of the film focuses on the boxer's life. He is told that his father is dead, and that he has to move back home with his mother, and that he has to start his life over again. Wayne is at first happy about this, but his life soon begins to unravel. He is involved in various drug-related activities, and his father is dead. He is asked to leave the boxing ring. His father's body is never found. His mother is a single mother and decides to move back home with him. His life begins to unravel. He gets involved in the fight scene and is involved in several fights with various fighters. This is an intense and somewhat sad film. The acting is superb, but it is not the best acting. The story is done well, but the acting is a bit underwhelming. The film is not the best of it's kind, but it is a good one, and it is an interesting one.

It's hard to know what to say about this film, since it is basically an origin story, or at least a direct continuation of the events of the book. The movie follows the adventures of Ben Wade, a man who gets involved in a local drug conspiracy, and who ends up in prison for the rest of his life. It also tells the story of Henry Peltier, the man who was brought to the attention of the law, and who ultimately helped to free Wade. I enjoyed the film, because I found it to be quite entertaining, especially the parts where Henry Peltier shows up, and then the end scene with him. If you want to see a great story, and a good movie, you should definitely check this out.

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones - the same name they were using when they were recording songs in the early 60's - were the only musical act to gain a massive audience in the US in the early 70's, despite their lack of popularity in the UK. They started off with an interesting story, which is well told in the film, but the movie is really about the history of the band and the way the events that lead to the band's formation are told. The movie takes a look at the ways in which the band was formed, the problems that arose, and how the members of the band reacted to the problems. The movie shows the struggles that the band members had with racism in their own country and how they responded to these problems. The story is told in a rather slow manner, which is not always a bad thing. Although, I did find the movie to be very long at 2 hours and 36 minutes, it still held my attention and I enjoyed the movie. The only thing I did not enjoy about the movie was the fact that it is a little long at two hours and 36 minutes. Also, I think the film does not do justice to the band, although the movie is still enjoyable.

This is an interesting movie. I liked the music and the whole atmosphere, it's a feel-good movie. I also enjoyed the look of the film, very artistic. The story is not what I would call a blockbuster, but I would recommend it.

I've seen this movie more times than I can remember. I saw it in the theater when I was a child, and it was in my parents' movie collection. I grew up watching it over and over again. Now, as an adult, I have the same connection to this film as I did when I was a child. I've come to the conclusion that it was really just a child's film. The acting is wonderful, the plot is interesting, and it's a little "edgy" for some adults, but not too much. I don't know if it was the actors, or the director, or just the writing, but it's very well made and that's what makes this movie stand out from the rest. The film will entertain you, and you'll think about it long after you leave the theater. It's a very good film, and I'm going to watch it again soon.

Historian, novelist, and director Anthony McCarten, also known as John Ford, was a natural born story teller, and no one could have pulled off a more engrossing version of his story. It's hard to believe that the script was written by a three year old, but it's true. What I love about this film is that it is more than just a biography of a man. It's a story about the way people talk about themselves, and how those same words can have such different meanings. McCarten gives the audience a chance to examine this idea with a child, and then with a child's adult self. McCarten's version of the "meanest man in Texas" is a man who doesn't understand himself. He's not an ass, he's just a man. He wants to be loved and respected, and he knows that he needs the love and respect of others to do that. McCarten chooses to tell this story through a child's perspective. The film is very touching, and you feel for the character as he tries to make sense of his life. It's a great film, and one that you should see.

I was very disappointed by this film, it was very dull, too much focus on the plot, not enough on the performances. I think there are better films out there to watch than this one, and I'm very interested to see other films of this director.

The film's production design is very impressive. There are some moments where you could see it was made in the 1970's. The acting in the film is fairly good. Kevin Costner does an excellent job in this movie. His acting is very intense. I do not believe he had any acting ability prior to this movie. The special effects are very well done. The plot is very interesting. The first half of the movie is very interesting. The second half of the movie is very interesting. The movie has some great acting. Kevin Costner is the most intense actor in the film. Robert Duvall is very good in the film. Michael Clarke Duncan is good. Halle Berry is very good. This is a very good film. I recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for a good movie to watch.

What a great story and what a great story it is. I can't believe how few people here have seen this movie. I love the movie and think it is one of the best films of all time. I loved how the movie could be based on true events and how real it could feel. It is a real story. There are people that are in the oil business, they have made some mistakes in life and have been affected by them. The movie follows their lives and how they got involved in the life of one of the characters in the story. The movie tells a great story, that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good story. I also really loved how the movie took place in Texas and how the music was set in Texas. This movie is great and I would recommend it to anyone who has never seen it. This movie is great.

I've just come back from watching this film and I was surprised at how good it was. It is a very intense film and I don't think I've ever been so moved at a film. It is a very powerful film and there is a lot of history in it. The film does a good job of showing the level of hatred and power of the big oil companies in Texas and how it was seen by a small group of people. The characters are very well written and it is interesting to see how the events are connected. The film is very well shot and very well acted. The performances are all very good. I think it is worth watching for anyone who is interested in history or Texas.

John Wayne plays a late 19th century Texas Ranger and a Southern Gothic outlaw who are at war with the Mexican government. The Rangers are on the verge of losing the Battle of the Alamo in 1836, but are determined to defend their home and honor. I liked the acting in this film, but the story line was a bit too convoluted. I also had trouble with the portrayal of the Spanish conquistadors, but that is not a big deal. The Spanish colonialists are portrayed as monsters, but they are portrayed in a much more subtle way. In the movie, they are all painted as evil; but the real evil of the Spanish was that they were on the wrong side of the civil war, not that they were all evil. They were, in fact, working to help the South and not to aid the Northern cause. This is portrayed in the movie as the cause of their rise to power, but the real cause was that they were getting too much power. They were not always able to control the local laws and the people. The film was a little too long, but I didn't mind. I think it would have been better as a feature length film. The acting is pretty good, and I think the cinematography is top-notch. I also like the cinematography in the movie. I am sure that there are many other films that I have missed that are more similar to this film, but I do know that there are some films that are better than this. I give this movie a 7 out of 10.

I watched the movie twice, the second time with an open mind. I was ready to see it as a bad movie. I was prepared to see a movie that is not going to do anything to educate the viewer. I was not disappointed. There are a few parts that seem a bit silly, but that was expected. The movie was well made and is well acted. I liked the lead actor. I am not sure if he had the talent or not, but he played the part very well. The rest of the cast was also well done. I think they did a good job of showing the times that the country was very troubled, and showing how the country was controlled by the king. I would recommend this movie to people who are interested in the history of the country. The movie does not tell you everything you want to know about the civil war, but it does a good job of showing the times and events. I give this movie 7 out of 10 stars.

I have to admit, I was pretty much a stranger to the true life story of Roy Rogers. So when I decided to watch this film, I was very pleasantly surprised to find a film with a quality and a cinematic quality that is so well made, that you could almost feel the excitement of Roy Rogers and the excitement of his time, and the fun that was brought to the film by the very talented cast. You are given a picture of a man who was a giant of a man, but who is shown as a very happy man, who lived a life filled with laughter, great food and great times. So much of the film is brought out with the great actors and actresses, and the actors and actresses did a great job, with the exception of Maggie Smith who was somewhat off in her interpretation of the character. But for the most part, it was a great film, and I would definitely recommend it to any fan of the true life story of Roy Rogers.

Let me begin by saying that this film is not "pure fiction", as some have suggested. This film is based on the true story of the famous Thomas Edison, who invented the world's first incandescent light bulb. The film tells the story of how Thomas Edison's life became a story that would become legend, as it was widely believed that he was the inventor of the incandescent light bulb. I was very surprised to see that the film is based on a true story. The story was actually told in an interview of Edison himself. It was also very interesting to see the true story of Thomas Edison through the eyes of his friends, and other people who knew him. I enjoyed the film, but there were a few things that I found to be very strange and very unbelievable. First, the child actors did not look like children. I thought that they were really old. The other thing that I found was that the director did not tell the audience what was happening in the movie. There was some back and forth, but not enough to tell you what was going on. I am very curious about how this film would have been told if it had been told from Edison's point of view. I think that would have been much better. I think that Edison would have had a different view of the world than the director has portrayed him as having. I would like to see a documentary film about the life of Thomas Edison, which would be based on the truth of the facts.
