Well, I have been in love with Tom Cruise since the first time I saw him in "The Firm." Now, I think I'm in love with him again. He is a wonderful actor, and he is now, in my opinion, the best actor in Hollywood. I can't think of anyone else who could have pulled off Cruise's role in "Unbreakable" as well as he did. I also think he was great in "Million Dollar Baby" too. Tom Cruise is a wonderful actor. A great actor. A truly great actor. He is such a great actor, in fact, that I will never know a better actor than him. This movie, and the story it tells is great. And the story it tells is about a man who has a heart of gold. He has it in abundance, so much that he can give it all to someone he loves. He is the type of person that wants to help everyone. And that is a part of his character that is so beautiful. And that is why I really enjoyed "Unbreakable." There is no doubt in my mind that it was an excellent film. I think it is a masterpiece. It is definitely a wonderful movie, and I think it is one of the best films of the year. If you want to see a great movie, I recommend "Unbreakable."

A Simple Favor is a great movie. One of the best movies I have ever seen. Kevin Spacey is one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood. He plays a man named Max Malone who is a convicted murderer. He gets out of prison and decides to go back to the farm to pick up his wife's sister who has been kidnapped. Max's brother has a lot of information and he wants to get it for Max. Max doesn't know who to trust and doesn't want to. The movie is so great that it makes you laugh and cry. The cast is great and the story is good. If you are looking for a movie that will make you cry and laugh then A Simple Favor is a movie you should see. This is a movie you have to see!

Before I began watching this movie I watched the original BBC radio drama "Where the Wild Things Are". In that BBC episode I saw a lot of similarities between the two stories. For example the character of Redmayne's character. One character who's role is to be the drunk who has the capacity to be mentally ill. One character who's role is to be the really drunk who has the capacity to be mentally ill. The two stories are a little bit alike, I would say in style. I really liked this movie because it was so original. It was a great thriller. The movie had a great atmosphere to it. There were many scenes that were really well done and I really enjoyed the movie for the way it was put together. The story was really unique and I think the cast did a great job. I would definitely recommend this movie.

Saw it at the Toronto International Film Festival and loved it. Enjoyed the first half of the film and the second half is the most enjoyable part. The story, the acting, the directing, the music all work in perfect harmony. There is nothing to complain about. There are few films that come out in any genre that have been so good. I feel like I've watched a better film this year than all the recent blockbusters I've seen. The acting is excellent and even though I think he has the acting talent to be a big star, he has to be more refined. It's good that his character was not a boring, self absorbed, someone who thinks he's better than everyone else. He wasn't the kind of character that he could just jump into a crowd and have an explosion, get his ego and ego stroked and then get his ego stroked. I think he had to take a little bit of time to find that balance. I also like how they portray some aspects of what it was like to be young in the '60's. Even though it's not true, it shows a little bit of what it was like to be a kid in that era. I also like the way they portray his character's past, like they took a few different movies and combined them into one film, in my opinion, better than most films. Overall, this film is fantastic and worth seeing.

A simple favor is an excellent movie, not like any other I have ever seen. It is dark, it is comedic, it is very intelligent, it has a twist, it is really fun. In fact it is so good, I would watch it again in a second, and I would have a lot of fun, but I would not recommend this movie to anyone without a very good taste. This movie is like a well worn ski jacket with the inside unblemished. The movie is completely unique and without a single flaw. This movie will stay with you long after you leave the theater. If you have seen it you will know what I mean. Just try to find the DVD, and see this movie. You will be in heaven!

If you haven't seen this movie yet, do yourself a favor and check it out. The acting is superb, the story is smart and not cliche, and the way the plot twists is simply amazing. I have never seen a movie that is so original and so well put together. I highly recommend this movie.

Forget all the negative press surrounding this movie and instead enjoy a really good movie. In the beginning of the movie I thought it was going to be cheesy but I quickly realized this was not the case. It was really well written and kept me guessing until the end. I actually liked how the movie had a twist and didn't go for the "happy ending" all the time. Instead it dealt with the idea that love is more than just "something that you feel", and was also the real problem that had to be solved. I thought that both of these ideas were brilliant and I recommend this movie to anyone.

A Simple Favor is a thriller from M. Night Shyamalan and I must say it is one of my favourite thrillers ever. The story follows a talented and intelligent school teacher, who has been on a long period of leave from work. He decides to visit his old girlfriend and asks her to take him to the bathroom, and at the same time he meets a mysterious man who asks him to tell him about his life. The question is, how do you know what you've been told? All I can say is that this is the best and the most unexpected thriller ever made. The plot is very interesting and the mystery is quite great. Shyamalan has created a suspenseful story, in which you don't know what will happen next, because the film takes you in the journey, and not to the characters. This is a very good and very original story. I recommend this film to everyone, because the mystery, the plot, and the acting are really fantastic, and I recommend this to everybody who likes thriller movies. 10/10

How do you make a film that's hard to categorize? Well, make it an homage to a classic by a director who has never before or since done such a thing. That's how this film is for me. And I will not give away anything to spoil this film for those who haven't seen it yet, but it is by far one of the most unconventional films I've ever seen. Director Ken Russell has taken an old cliche and given it a new twist. That's the only reason I can think of to describe it. But there are so many other reasons to watch this film that I don't even want to mention them. For one, it is such a unique story that it is hard to describe. And I don't think I can do it. It's just a pure genius idea, but I can't explain it, so I'll just say that it's one of the best films I've seen in a long time. And that's saying a lot, because that's only my opinion. I'll leave it at that, but this is a film that will be talked about for a long time to come. In fact, I'm not sure what will happen to it. At this point, I'd say it is at least the second most important film of the year. And, if you have no interest in what's going on in Hollywood, then I suggest that you don't watch it. I can't imagine how people would dislike this film. I wouldn't say that this film is a "masterpiece", but it is the best film I've ever seen. And that's saying something. If you haven't seen it, I think you'll love it. See it if you like films that you can't explain, but can't explain that you don't understand.

This film is so unique, yet it seems so cliche. I love how the movie keeps you guessing, and then surprises you. The plot is so cool, and I think that the story is so well written that it will be easy to believe that it actually happened. The movie was really cool to watch, it made me feel so sad that something like this could happen to someone so innocent, and the music was so cool, it made the movie so great. I was a bit skeptical about this movie, but I was wrong. The story is a bit cheesy, but overall it is a very good movie that has the potential to be a classic. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes movies, and to anyone who has ever been cheated by a friend or somebody you love. This movie is really great, and if you like this movie, you will definitely enjoy it.

We watched this movie for a family reunion, and it was truly one of the best movies we've seen. I loved the concept of the movie, and it had a good twist on the plot. The performances were outstanding, and I was moved by the story. It is definitely a movie you don't want to miss. We have watched it several times since we saw it. This is definitely a movie you will enjoy watching.

I had no idea what this movie was about before I saw it, and it was a good decision. I was amazed at how the story kept me entertained the whole time. I enjoyed it so much I want to buy it and watch it again.

This movie is absolutely stunning, stunning in it's simplicity. It's not a piece of art but a cinematic experience, a cinematic experience that will make you think, think, think. The acting is excellent, especially I loved that the actors are really plain, just like the actors in "Z" and "Skyfall", they're not the "stars" but just ordinary people doing their job. It's a really very hard task to achieve this kind of performance in a film. The script is pretty great and the story is very good. It's a nice movie and it's a shame that it's not an Oscar nominated film, because it deserves it. But for now, it's a really good film, and I'm really happy that it's not a film I have to see again.

i must say i was totally blown away. great movie. should have gone straight to tv or something. would be great to watch with the entire family. great story line. great actors. i don't think i have ever seen a movie in my life that has such a great message behind it. and what is the meaning of this movie? that being if you don't have money to pay for a lawyer. well that is exactly what this movie shows. to make you feel that it is not that bad, just like this movie. which is an absolute must see. i think it was a good movie and i am so glad it is coming out on tv again. please give it a chance. it is the best movie i have ever seen in my life.

Movies that I can watch over and over again are the movies I have seen over and over again. The film "The Mist" has been a favorite of mine since it was released in 2003. It is a very dark and suspenseful film. It is not a horror film and not a mystery. It is a film that takes you into a world of shadows, paranoia and bad people. I was shocked by this film because I am usually very turned off by these kinds of movies. I saw this film with a friend and we were talking about it about a half hour after the film had started. It was a very funny film. I was very impressed with it and I am going to see it again. There are many great films out there that I could not give a rating for because they are not films I would like to see again. This is a movie that I will be seeing again and I will add it to my collection. If you enjoy films with a plot and mystery, then this is a movie you should see.

The first time I watched this movie, I watched it by accident. I was walking to a bus stop and a guy I was hanging out with asked me to sit next to him so he could buy a ticket. He was about to buy a ticket and was walking down the sidewalk when I happened to see this movie on TV. I sat down and the next thing I knew I was watching it. That's right. I watched it by accident. I actually felt like I was watching it by accident. I had not planned on watching this movie, I just happened to watch it. I watched it twice that day. The second time I watched it I wasn't watching it because I was bored and it was an hour before bedtime. The third time I watched it, I was at work and I wasn't feeling well so I wasn't in the mood for watching something. I wasn't even thinking about watching it. I was just tired and ready for bed. I watched it again the next day and it was a different story. I was totally hooked. I was laughing and crying. I thought the plot was really good and it was well done. It was fun to watch and it was a nice movie to watch alone. I enjoyed watching it so much. I had seen it twice in a row and I decided to watch it again on my birthday. I watched it again, and again. I don't know how I managed to get through the movie in one sitting. It is a classic. This movie is very well done. I recommend it to anyone who likes a good movie. This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. The plot is good and I enjoyed watching it. It is a classic and a must see.

I don't usually like it when the leading actress of a movie is a female actor but, this is not the case here. I know it's hard to find a female in Hollywood to play a role like this, but she is perfect for this role. I don't know how she got the role, but I hope that she gets nominated for an Academy Award. And I don't think anyone could play the role better than Rachael Leigh Cook. She did a great job with this role. And, I don't know if I will ever see another movie by her in the future. She's amazing and I love her so much. And, I loved how the movie ended. The only thing I didn't like was that it was too predictable, but that is just my opinion. I give it a 10/10.

When i first saw the movie, i was instantly attracted to it. Even today, i still find myself watching it, even though it was only 2 years ago. I think it is a very nice movie, and it has been a very interesting experience for me to watch it. It has a very good storyline, and it has also a very good cast. The music is very very good too. I have also watched it twice, and i really enjoyed it the first time. The second time was very good too. It has the great sense of humor, and a very interesting story. I definitely recommend it, especially if you are a fan of crime movies.

Here's a movie that is the best movie of the year so far. It is far better than The Dark Knight, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Dark Knight Rises. Not to mention it is by far the best movie that I have seen this year. It is not that good compared to some of the other movies of the year but it is far better than some of the other movies of the year. This movie has everything. A fantastic cast, an incredible story, and a twist ending. I would recommend this movie to everyone. It is a great movie that everyone should see. If you haven't seen it yet I highly recommend it.

I was lucky enough to have seen the first viewing of this film at a special screening of the movie. I have been waiting for the sequel for so long that when I was going to go see it, I knew I was going to see it at a special screening. I was so wrong. I had so much fun with this film. I am so glad that the second viewing was so great. It was better and it was just as good as the first. I will give you a quote from the movie that I think is so important. The main character's mother is a nurse. She's a good mother, but she wants to be a nurse. Her son says that if he had been born with an eye disease, he would have had a very easy life. So it was a good story. I love how the film left out the background music and music, to make the music more dramatic. The director did a great job of changing the music to make it more dramatic. The ending was fantastic. It was so great. It was like watching a movie. I was very happy. It was very good. It was worth it. The director did a wonderful job of making this film even better. I love this film and I am so glad I went see it. If you have not seen it, then go see it. It is a great film.

This is a classic with some truly great performances. The script is full of twists, turns and turns. I'm sure that people who hate this movie will look for flaws, but I say give it a chance and you will find them. I didn't expect to like it, but I did. This is a great story of a simple girl who has to sacrifice her father's legacy. I would give this movie a 10, but the writers and directors should be thanked. I give this movie a 9.8/10.

Annette Bening is at her best in this film. It is a masterpiece of the high art of suspense, action, and good dialogue. It is also a pure classic that I have just watched on cable. The acting is wonderful, especially by Alyssa Milano, who is a perfect example of a beautiful woman. This film is the most popular film I have ever seen, and I never get tired of it.

The story is very interesting, the acting is great, the dialogs are great, the screenplay is fantastic, the characters are very real. The plot is very original and interesting, and the ending is very realistic. This is the first time that I have seen a movie that is a true masterpiece.

The story is very unique, and the story is a little bit original. I have seen this movie three times and I love it every time I watch it. I would recommend this movie to everyone, because this movie is very original and very good.
