The movie is directed by John Singleton, who wrote the script for the 2014 film based on his own experience with a life-threatening illness. It is based on the life of another adult who was diagnosed with AIDS and was the subject of a documentary film. The movie is about a man named Richard Stallman, who was diagnosed with AIDS at the age of 22. He went to prison, and in prison he developed a "personal journal" to document his life. This is a touching story of one man's struggle with AIDS and his journey toward living a long and healthy life. The movie is very well done, with a great cast, including an Oscar nominee for best actor, but the real star is the screenplay. It is superbly written, and the dialog is superbly delivered. The story is so moving, and the screenplay is so rich and interesting. It is very well acted. This is a must see movie for everyone.

After watching the trailer for this movie, I had high hopes for this movie, especially since it had a cast of some of my favorite actors, John Travolta, Ice Cube, and Reginald VelJohnson. I was not disappointed at all. This movie is about a small-time drug dealer, Robert, played by Ice Cube, who comes to town for a visit with his father (John Travolta). During the visit, Robert and his father become involved in a high stakes poker game, where Robert becomes the focus of the attention of a local woman (Reginald VelJohnson). He goes to great lengths to find the woman and the rest of the story follows his search for the woman. This is an intense, dark and funny movie that is very good, especially when you get to the last act. The best part is that it's a movie that is truly about the way in which a man can show love and how he can be the best person that he can be for the people that he cares about. A very good movie that I highly recommend.

This is a powerful film, but it will have you shaking your head and questioning everything you thought you knew. You will want to see it again, and again. The film has an original storyline, that is so important in our times, and yet it seems to fall into the familiar trap of stereotypes. It is not a film that can be easily categorized. The acting is great, the cinematography is beautiful, the direction is superb, and the film has something for everyone. I think it is a film that you can take someone you know, and anyone you love, and you will not be disappointed.

If you're going to make a movie about a corrupt politician, you need to be better than the political equivalent. This film, based on a true story, is a bit of a work of art. If you have the opportunity to see it on the big screen, do it. It's really a must see.

I thought this movie was great. The main character, played by Adam Driver, was a very different person than I was used to in films. I liked the fact that he kept his own identity and didn't dress up as a criminal. He had a strong, yet quiet demeanor. I liked how the movie progressed. It had a few different scenes that I liked and kept my attention. The ending scene was a great way to end a movie. I recommend this movie for fans of Adam Driver, crime dramas, and everything else. 9/10

I'm not sure what all the hate is about, but this film is awesome. You can't really expect much from a Michael Moore film, but this one is really good. It's an honest, heart-felt tale about one man's fight against the American Dream and his family's status in the race for American aristocracy. We get to know all the characters through their lives, both good and bad, and the way they react to the events they witness. The film is worth seeing, and you may never see another film as honest and smart as this one. I think this film is one of the most underrated films of all time, and it's definitely not a film you should miss out on. I've seen it twice already and it's still as good as the first time I saw it. If you haven't seen this film, go see it now!

Travolta is perfectly cast as Rick, a young, low-income working class black man who is a drug dealer. Rick is on the run from the law and seeks to find his place in the world, though he may well be lost. Rick's gang is almost entirely made up of the young and pretty, mostly white, female workers of the community who feed Rick. This is a very powerful movie about how racism affects a man's sense of identity and his desire to be accepted and accepted. I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys good, thought-provoking movies, and who is interested in the black experience.

After watching the movie I was a little disappointed because I expected more of this movie. What the heck did I expect from this movie? The story was good, it was just the script that made it boring. I did not like the ending, and the action sequences were just mediocre. This movie is rated R, and I was expecting more of this movie. I really liked the ending, I wanted more action, and more great comedy, but this movie just lacked all that. The movie could have been better, but it is not a bad movie. The movie was just OK. I will watch this movie again when I watch other movies.

I'm just a regular guy who goes to movies with his family. I really loved this movie. I would recommend it to anyone who is into movies that aren't usually family friendly. I have no idea why it isn't in theatres more often. The acting is really good and the cinematography is great. You really get the feel of the times the characters were living in and it feels very authentic. The story is great and the acting is great. It's a must see.

I can't believe how much I enjoyed this movie. I thought it was a great concept and did a great job in creating a realistic environment. The plot was realistic and not full of "magic" or "supernatural" elements. The characters were believable and did a great job of showing their lives and emotions. I am very surprised at how much I liked this movie. I think it was a good movie, if not a great movie. I would recommend it to anyone who likes movies that are realistic and portray the real world of crime. I give it 9 stars.

This movie has two great things. One is the realistic portrayal of the drug world in LA. The other is the portrayal of the inner turmoil and struggle that comes with being a young, homeless, drug addicted black man in LA. The second is a very beautiful film. The second is the acting. The second is the screenplay. The first is the way the movie is filmed. The second is the beautiful cinematography and editing. The first is the acting. I will not be surprised if this is the best film of 2005. The acting is truly incredible. Russell Crowe, James McAvoy, and a stellar cast. This movie is not only for people who have a real life experience in dealing with addiction. I highly recommend it.

I have always been a fan of Danny Glover's acting, and this movie is another fine example. It is very well shot and the locations are very well chosen. The acting is excellent and the story is interesting. I am not sure if the movie is a true story, but I don't think it is too far fetched. I think this movie was very well made. I would have liked to see a little more action in the movie, but that is the only complaint I have. Overall, I would definitely recommend this movie.

As an American I think I am somewhat jaded. I have been in the movies since I was 12, I have seen some terrible movies but this is the best I have seen. A true masterpiece.

I just finished watching this film. I had heard about it and read about it and I decided to give it a chance. It was well worth the time and effort. There is some bad acting, but I found myself cheering on the man. The plot is unique and thought provoking. The ending is something to see. It has a message to it. I will be looking for more movies like this. It is very funny and it will leave you with a message. The film makers have done a great job. It is a wonderful film and I would highly recommend it. I would have given it a ten if I could.

I was very impressed with this movie. It has a good cast, it has good directing and I thought the story was very well put together. The casting was perfect for each of the characters and the actors were all very good. It was a nice change of pace from the usual Hollywood trash. I hope there is a sequel to this movie because I would love to see what happens to these people. I think this movie is a great example of a good movie. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good crime/drama.

Not sure if I'm writing this right but I just can't get enough of this movie. There's a lot of characters, all very interesting, and there are some dark scenes that are very hard to watch. The movie is also very moving, and the acting is pretty good. The only other movie I'd recommend this to is The Score. This is definitely not a movie you will want to watch at home, but I do recommend it.

I think that a movie should be judged on it's own merits. For me, this movie was amazing. It's about a young kid, from a dysfunctional family who was raised by a couple of bad parents, and is now living in a rough neighborhood and getting into trouble. This kid has a special talent, he can see into the future. He is also an extremely intelligent kid, and has a lot of self-confidence and courage. He goes on a quest to find out what happened to his family and see what he can do to make things right. This is a very original and original story. It's also very well made, with great acting. I really liked how the movie did not seem like it was made for kids. It was very adult and had its funny moments, but was very well acted and well made. This movie really does not disappoint.

The Wire is one of my favourite television series and it's hard to find a bad one. The Wire has been called "the greatest TV series ever made". And for good reason. The Wire is a gritty, gritty look at the city of Baltimore and its people. The Wire is a gritty look at life on the streets. It is about the people who live in the city and the people who live in the city. But what makes this series so great is that it is very realistic. The people are believable and believable people aren't easy to find. This is one of the best TV series ever made and it's hard to find a bad one.

I have not seen the original. The 2nd one was only okay. However, I saw this one. This was a very good movie. The acting was superb. The story line was different. The movie was very interesting and entertaining. The most important part of the movie was the acting. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who has not seen it.

WOW, what a beautiful movie. It's a little bit like "Liar's Poker" in that the main character is a genuine individual. He is not a guy you can easily relate to. But his acting is perfect and he's really quite believable. This is one of those movies where you'll be watching the movie and really just like the characters and you'll want to know what will happen next. Well, you'll probably be pleased with what happens next. This movie is definitely a must see.

This movie is a must see for all my generation. My parents were never too impressed with "Boy Meets World" or "Rocky Horror Picture Show" but I am proud to be a part of the generation that grew up watching this movie. I think that the audience who were not even born when this movie came out is a lost generation. This movie was so much more than a show, it was a story that could be told in a matter of days. The acting was great and I thought that the storyline was very good and realistic. I think that the characters in this movie have a real sense of realism and their decisions are not just for the sake of the movie, but for the sake of their own lives. This movie is also very realistic and I think that it is very well made. I think that this movie is the best "rock'em, sock'em" movie ever made.
