For once I went to see a movie with a purpose and actually got something out of it. This movie had all the elements that make a movie enjoyable, acting, plot, humor, and emotions. In other words it was a movie that could be enjoyed. The main characters were quite believable, and the plot was well structured. If you want to see a good film with a good story and great acting then this movie is for you.

Cameron Diaz stars in "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and you know what it's gonna be about.A couple in love who get married.You see in this film that Cameron Diaz is not a model beauty,she just loves to sing and dance and I think that's what you need in a romantic film.The guy is a cancer patient who's career is going nowhere.He knows how to be successful without being successful. His wife gets divorced and he wants to become a divorce lawyer.The couple meets and they begin a relationship and they end up getting married.It's the beginning of the end. You see how their relationship ends up being stronger than before because of it.I think the relationship is stronger than it was before because of the relationship of the couple.The marriage of the couple is stronger than it was before because of how they're going to get married and the movie shows it.I think it was a good movie but I think it's a bit depressing.You see how it ends up being stronger than before.That's the thing. I think it was a good movie. I just didn't like it.

Likely this is a good story of a guy who didn't get his love, his mother died when he was a little kid and he lived his life trying to compensate for it. He was a genius, he had a new idea about the highway and started working on it, and that's the movie. I do not think he was a genius, but he was brilliant and he was trying to compensate for his mother, and that is the story. For a while it looks like he was going to get it but then he did not. He's changed from a genius to a neurotic, cranky, impulsive person, but he's trying to compensate for his mother's death. His mind is in a mess. That's the story. The main character did not get to the top, and he didn't get his love, and he didn't get to his mother. And it's a very nice movie.

While the film is certainly a new story that makes the viewer reflect upon their own life, this story is not new in its message or subject matter. The films message is very simple, and its message is a heart-warming one, it is a movie that you can watch again and again and always learn something from it. It is very educational, and at times sad, but also funny. The message itself is inspirational and you will learn something about your own life, especially with the last scene. It is not a good film for everyone, but for the viewer who cares about him/her self, it is a great movie, and its message is very meaningful. The acting was amazing and was one of the most powerful acting performances I have ever seen. The cast and their performance was definitely something to see. We can learn a lot about our own lives from this film.

I read the book and loved it. When the movie came out I was shocked. I was surprised by how much the movie had changed. I liked the movie and thought it was very well done. I thought the movie would be more of the same, but it was a completely different movie. I thought it was so much better. I really enjoyed the book and thought it was a very emotional story. It was so moving, the way the boys talk to one another. I thought it was very good that it showed all of the boys when they were 12 years old. I also thought the fact that they had a lot of characters was very good. I thought they did a great job of showing all of the boys in the story. It was a little disturbing at times, but the fact that there were some really sad scenes in the movie made me feel a little better. I liked that the movie didn't show a lot of the things that the boys were really feeling. I think they should have showed a little more. I thought it was a great movie. It was different, but I really enjoyed it.

This movie is about a high school girl, who has a cousin in the war. She also has a friend who works at a local shopping mall. There's a one night stand. During the one night stand, they hook up. She's a cheerleader. The guy that's her cousin goes through a rough time. It's a movie that really shows that time really do matter. The movie starts with a brief description of the war and the level of the people that they had known. I thought the movie could've had an emotional effect on me, but there was nothing that really did that. It was a movie that I watched on a Sunday afternoon. It was a fun movie, but it wasn't the best movie I've ever seen. It wasn't too graphic, it wasn't too violent, and it wasn't very realistic.

Some people may be shocked by this film because of its perceived content. The word "love" comes up quite a bit in the film and is frequently used by several characters throughout. However, I can't help but wonder what their words were, and whether they truly meant what they said. The film is narrated by the main character, a woman named "Rose," played by Helen Hunt. She is a woman who has lived with an abusive husband and has struggled to gain her self-esteem. She starts to realize that she has always been a woman with a man and, through a series of events, discovers that she is gay. Her experiences as a child and as an adult are portrayed through the struggles that she goes through to go out and find a man and how she decides to live out her life, even though she's not ready for the idea. As you can tell, this film is not the most "hilarious" of films, but it's also not the most "filmy" of films. The director, Gareth Edwards, was not able to have his characters really shine in this film. They were all bland, unemotional and almost lifeless. I just didn't believe that these characters were really struggling with these issues. The characters and their problems didn't get me emotionally invested in the film. Also, the story of the film is not great. There are some key parts of the story that I didn't buy. What I like about this film is that it's an honest film about a subject that many people aren't really ready to face. That's why I love films like this and why I give it a 7 out of 10. The plot is not great and the subject matter isn't great. That's why I can't really give this film a perfect score.

Claudia (Ann Hathaway) and Russell (Steven Strait) are divorced from their two sons. They had a son named Danny (Josh Hutcherson) but he died of brain cancer when he was ten. They're divorced again, and Claudia is living with John (Jeffrey Wright). It's clear that Claudia has a pretty complex relationship with John. They're working hard, but Claudia is starting to get bored. Claudia has developed a bad taste for John and is ready to put her own happiness above his. John does not want her to have a relationship with Claudia. Claudia is growing even more bored with him, and she comes to the conclusion that he's just not the kind of man she wants. There is a beautiful scene in which she says, "I've become more successful than you are." She has become more successful than John and it doesn't surprise her that he still wants her. It's just a bit too much of a sad story. It's hard to see how it can end well. There are some funny moments, and some nice touches. But the whole story just doesn't go anywhere. It's too tiring. The acting was pretty good. The real star is Jennifer Garner, who plays Claudia's daughter Sarah. Her chemistry with Wes Bentley is so great that she steals every scene she's in. Wes Bentley's performance is more charming than funny. I liked him, but his part is so small that it doesn't matter. He just comes across as a nice person. When I think about it, the only part of the movie I really liked was the one with his character and Sarah. He looked like a nice guy. He's not a good actor, but he does get the job done. Hugh Grant's performance is one of the worst parts of the film. He just comes across as annoying. The only part of the film that's good is when he is in it. He is totally adorable. He is a great actor and I think he deserves a better part. The movie is too long. It's over two and a half hours long, but it feels like it could have been shorter. I could have used some time to get back into the story. The movie is too slow at times and doesn't feel like it's moving fast enough. They should have cut some parts out, especially the part where Wes Bentley and Cindy happen to come to a house where Clayton and Claudia are supposed to be living. It seems a little bit unnecessary. When they go to see his daughter, it's an eternity before we ever see John again. We just see the picture of her family. The one thing that I really enjoyed was the way they used Cindy. She is the only one who we know is staying with the family. I liked that she is the only person we know is

This film is what I would call a "chick flick". It has a great cast and a story that will make you want to watch it again. The scene with the old and a young kid coming to terms with the reality of life and death was something I've never seen before and it got me thinking about things in life. Then there was the scene of the 3 young people in a tiny room living in the middle of a country road. That is what I call a good scene. It was also nice to see DeNiro and Freeman back together, as well as Tom Sizemore, but I found the whole situation with the younger guy in the car very hard to take and hard to watch. I was also amazed at the length of the film. This is about 5 hours, but you would not notice. It was not a boring film. It was simply an interesting film about life, death and the human condition. I would recommend it for anybody. My Rating: 7/10

I am a huge fan of "The Maltese Falcon," but I find the "Young Turk" storyline more interesting than the "I want to be a rebel." This film follows the adventures of a young man trying to become a soldier in WWI and an army officer trying to keep him on the straight and narrow. James Badge Dale (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a young man from a wealthy family who was born into a life of privilege. After he is stationed in the trenches of France, he meets Daisy Duke (Dakota Fanning) a 17 year old girl who became a rebel after her father was killed in battle. He comes to the conclusion that Daisy's father was the one who set the tables for the war and needs to be punished. Since she is also a soldier, he wants her to join the army and fight in the war. They soon develop a relationship and a connection. His orders to Daisy force her into joining the army. The rest of the movie follows their journey through the war and some of the people they meet along the way. James' storyline is more interesting and gets the viewer interested. It makes the viewer feel sorry for James because he is in a war with the Germans, the Japanese, and the Italians. If the war were over, James would have had a wife and children, but he's still a young man trying to become a soldier in a war where he is supposed to be a hero. This movie is more interesting and keeps the viewer interested. The war is not even mentioned, it is more of a background to the journey of the characters. My main issue with this movie is the ending. The ending is completely different than the rest of the movie and is rather abrupt. The other thing that I was not satisfied with was the female character, Daisy. The character is supposed to be a rebel, but I think she does not play a role in the movie the way that she is meant to. I think she is more of a "like minded" character who tries to convince James to join the army, but her character seems more like a jealous girl who hates Daisy and wants to stop her from marrying a "good looking" man like him. Overall, this movie is a good movie and I recommend it to anyone. I was surprised to see that it was rated R because it is not as violent as "Patton," "Full Metal Jacket," and "Platoon." It does not have any sex or nudity in it. I think the R rating is more appropriate for a movie like this. I rate this movie 7/10.

Before this movie I was not too sure that Marlon Brando would be in it. But I think he was pretty good in this movie. Some of the parts were pretty bad, but he was good. We also got to see Ed Harris in a small role. Overall this movie was not very good but it was OK. I did like this movie.

This movie was quite good, but I was somewhat disappointed in the ending. I understand that I didn't really get into the story. I'm sure I'll read the book before I see the movie. There were some very funny parts of the book, but I think the movie took them out of the film. I just didn't feel that the movie got it all together, or was very entertaining. I think the movie was missing some humor. I think we'll have to see the movie again, and try to find some funny parts.

My teenage daughter and I found this movie on Netflix for the first time and we were surprised. We like a lot of Wes Craven's movies. There are some good scenes and some really bad ones. The teen sex scene is really bad but there are many things in the movie that were very questionable. The main story line is good but the pace is very slow. There are some characters that were not developed well and it was very difficult for me to care about them at the end of the movie. A lot of scenes were boring. Some people find this movie quite disturbing and I would not recommend this movie to teenagers, as I found it rather unpleasant. This movie is definitely a "slow burner" movie that would not appeal to everybody.

While I may be getting a little bit ahead of myself, I think I'm finally getting to the point. I went into this film thinking that the whole shebang of the 'gay' conversion thing that's been floating around the internet, that nobody seems to have figured out yet, had been just in the same direction as everything else. In fact, I'm thinking that this film's tagline is, "This is the story of the gay conversion." I can't say that it was a disappointment. I can't say it was a disappointment because I didn't find it to be a disappointment, and I actually found it to be something that I thought would be somewhat original. At least it's not one of those cliche endings. I'm giving it a 7 out of 10, simply because the main character is such a dork, and the plot is too obviously contrived for me to find that it was ever even remotely plausible. It's not original, it's not clever, it's not funny, and it's not "worth" the time that it took to watch. It was just a waste of time.

This was a brilliant film for a couple of reasons. I really enjoyed the strong dramatic performances by all of the actors. I also liked the cinematography and the futuristic setting. I liked the way this was done as well. I was very impressed with the role the British actress played. Her performance was very very strong. I also liked the way the plot was written. I really enjoyed the way the plot was paced out and how it progressed from scene to scene. I liked the way that I felt this was a very good film. It was a good way to spend an evening. Overall, I really enjoyed this film. I recommend it to any film-lovers. I give this a B+.

When I was a little girl, I had read a number of magazine articles about what they called "God's Kingdom". I was skeptical of this notion because of the death and dying of several kids I knew in my small town. I never believed in "The Big One" and the media made me paranoid and hesitant of the possibilities of a possible monster taking up residence in my small town. Then I read a book called "God's Kingdom" by Robin Fox and I was thrilled! It was an inspirational story about overcoming death, sin and fear of death. Robin Fox described this book as "revelation". I saw an ad for this movie, and I couldn't wait to see this movie! The movie follows the lives of two boys, Liam and Jack, as they grow up and enter puberty. They are picked on, bullied and abused by their peers. However, there is a spark of love between the two that can't be described in words. I felt this love for Liam and this fear of Jack is what was exciting and riveting about this movie. I can only assume that I was not exposed to this type of loving relationship between two boys. By the time the movie ended, I knew what I had witnessed and wanted to experience it again. The story is engrossing and interesting, with lots of emotions and heartbreak. I can only assume that people who have not read this book will not be able to connect with the emotions of the movie. The book is a way of communicating what it is like to grow up with loving parents and to the loss of a parent. It is also about the need to become mature enough to deal with loss. It is a touching story about these two boys who have grown up, and yet need to grow up, too. To my surprise, the people who commented about this movie before me all had experience with this book. People told me to not expect this movie to be a Disney movie. But I think Disney should have done a little more marketing and promotional to see if this book would be a success with the public. This movie is about a boy and his relationships with his brothers, his father, and his mother. The most positive aspects of this movie is that it is about a boy growing up in a loving and supportive environment and growing into a man. It's about a boy growing up with a father who is supportive and protecting his family. It's about a boy learning to deal with his own pain. It's about a boy learning to love and forgive himself. The second aspect of the movie is the relationship between Liam and Jack. The relationship between the two boys is the most intriguing part of the movie. It's about the conflict between the boys and how they try to relate to each other. Both Liam and Jack are in love with a girl named Tilly

Sometimes, movies feel so unbelievably unique that they're impossible to categorize. This is one of those. After taking a course in existentialism by two people who gave the film a glowing review, it wasn't hard to figure out this film was a touch of existentialist and a little bit of comedy. Everything about it, the characters, the plot, the cinematography, the music, everything had to have a connection to one or the other. It also had to make a statement about the death of an American generation or two. The fact that the filmmakers chose to put some comedic elements into this story, gave me the sense that there was something deep and meaningful behind the film. The story centers around two sisters, Stella and Martha (played by Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep), who come from a wealthy family who have inherited a collection of historic paintings that they've sold for a fortune. In between buying paintings and giving the family over to their heirs, they also try to sell it to a museum for millions of dollars. It's a bit of a game of Russian roulette where the sisters are going to have to throw in as many pins as possible to get their share of the money. The final showdown is a good ending, though the twist was predictable and not really that deep. Still, it was a satisfying end to the movie. Other movies that deal with the existential crisis, or the type of family, are, "Schindler's List," "The Pink Panther," "All About Eve," "The Godfather," "Gandhi," and "The Crucible." It was a really good idea for the movie to show how the Miller's family and life would be changed if they sold the paintings. As one of the characters, Stella, said, "It's like you get a second chance." I think this film does a really good job of making this point. There are several humorous moments in the film. I'm not going to say the ending, but the final scene of this movie is very funny. The Miller's family's relationship with their late father's paintings is kind of like a coming of age story. When they sold the paintings for a massive sum of money, they started the family collection over with their inheritance. They all seemed like really nice, well-mannered people until the end of the film, when they all realized that something was really wrong. Even if it wasn't a dramatic twist, the ending made the movie that much more emotional and less happy. When you see a movie that's not very happy, I can't really say that it's a bad movie. This movie is not just a happy movie. It's one that I would recommend for anyone who has a strong inner life and likes to watch movies.

Although all the main actors in this movie are very good actors, they are sadly just barely up to par with the role they are playing. David Strathairn is the star of the show and he plays the lead role very well. He seems to be having fun playing the young guy who is trying to be responsible, but is actually more like an uptight older guy who is trying to be too smart. Samuel L. Jackson plays the good, well, good guy with the sarcastic comments and smart aleck remarks, but he is the one that carries the whole movie. But what about Dustin Hoffman? He plays the "crazy" doctor and is just too well-written and beautiful to be totally underrated. Hoffman was the glue that held all the other actors together, and he just shines here. The whole movie is well-done, but not really memorable. The movie doesn't really have a well-written plot, and it's too short to really hit home. I wouldn't go out of my way to watch this movie, but if you see it on TV it would be okay. 7/10

Just finished watching this film. I will be first to admit that I am a big fan of Richard Curtis' writing, as he's written so many great movies, ranging from "The Vietnam War" and "The Sixth Sense" to "A Beautiful Mind" and "The Rainmaker" to the brilliant "The Graduate". So naturally I was pretty eager to see this new film, and it seemed to be another fine Curtis film. But it didn't quite hit the mark as I'd hoped. The only reason I gave it a 7, is because the cast was perfect. Even though I can't think of a single character that I disliked in this film, I must say I was slightly disappointed by a few aspects. I thought Matt Damon was the perfect addition to this film, and I thought his scenes with Cameron Diaz were simply outstanding. They were so believable and mesmerizing in their performances that I almost never found myself thinking "I don't like that guy at all". Other performances were also quite well done. Although John Malkovich's character was a bit over the top, I thought he was an outstanding actor. But I also was a bit disappointed that I didn't think he added much to the story. The only thing I felt he did well in the film was making me want to read the book that he wrote. And he was also one of the few actors who actually added humor in a dramatic scene, unlike some of the other characters. I didn't feel I was able to connect to any of the characters in the film, mainly because the character's were so flawed and human that I couldn't care about them. I could tell that this was not just another adventure-flick, but a film about the human condition, and the common experience of high school. So when the film ended, I felt empty. I felt like the end was way too short, and the movie could have gone on much longer to show the depths of this man and the trials he had to go through. But as it was, the film was one that I felt was worth the watch.

I really enjoyed watching this film. It has been a long time since I have seen a film that has made me feel more and more like I was in high school. The relationship between Joey and Greg is so well done. Even though it was a short period of time, there were so many moments when it made me smile and then really tear up. As I said, it is a very realistic film. Even though the movie is about a teen that has just graduated high school, I think that it is very accurate to the way things were. Overall, this is one of the best films of the year.

I was intrigued to see a movie that dealt with the teen's experience of growing up and being accepted. I am still trying to figure out what it was all about. I thought it was different, but then I thought about how everyone is just learning to deal with new experiences in life. This movie deals with the years of trying to deal with sexuality, dealing with the stress of having to pretend you're straight, dealing with the pressures of being accepted, and dealing with growing up. It's also about dealing with the pressure of getting a girlfriend and how it affects your life. I think the film did a good job of showing all of these things and it was a good story. It is different than other teen movies, but it is the first one I've seen with a young cast and they all did a good job. It is not like other teen movies that are just a lot of screaming and fighting and hanging out. This movie shows how good friends can help each other deal with a lot of issues. I also liked the way the movie shows the old age and the ways to deal with old age. I think it shows how people can move on and still have a friendship.

I recently saw this film as a newbie and I did find it mildly enjoyable. The dialog is very dull and predictable, but it's actually quite interesting. In particular, at the beginning when Jimmy is writing his note for an upcoming business trip to Africa, he devises a fantastical description of the man he thinks the man is. However, as soon as he's writing it, it is abruptly cut and he's left to ponder, wondering what is supposed to be on the note. This is one of those rare cases where I had no idea what was supposed to be on the note, so the character's description seemed redundant. I also found the ending very weird and unnecessary. I was so happy when it ended, because I felt it had been so illogical. Although it seemed like it could have been a fairly good film, it ended up feeling like an expensive production for a low budget film.
