The whole movie was amazing. I couldn't believe how well it was shot. The opening shot where there are these huge empty mountains and the shot changes to one of the most beautiful landscapes ever captured on film. All of that is captured on film. The colors, the photography, and the sound. This is the best movie I've ever seen. It has just everything. It doesn't go into plot, but the entire movie is just about human relations, how a person feels in the world, the people that love him, and how he feels about these people. It is very interesting, at the same time it's very funny, and you will see a great amount of humor in this movie. I don't know if people will like this movie because the language is not the best in the world, but I can guarantee it will make you feel better about what you are seeing, it has everything in it that is funny, and sad, and touching. The only problem I have with this movie is that it is too long. If you are a drama, romance, or an action movie fan, this is definitely the movie for you. There is something for everyone in this movie. This is my favorite movie ever. I highly recommend it to everyone who loves the romance genre, and a great story about people from all over the world. I am definitely going to watch this movie again and again, because I would not leave this movie alone.

My wife and I really enjoyed this movie. The characters were well developed. The story was very interesting. There are some graphic scenes, but they are not in a way that is disturbing to the audience. There is no blood and guts in this movie. I liked it, and have rated it a 9/10.

Yes, this movie is true. You can't buy or create a character like this. But there's a lot of truth in this movie. It is not only about a long distance love but also about the relationship between two different peoples in a very difficult time. I will say that the movie is a bit disappointing and that you need to have a good understanding of English and American history before watching it. And that would be another plus for this movie.

I am an extreme Liam Neeson fan, and this movie is no exception. He is very convincing as the struggling city dweller who still loves his wife, and his relationship with his father-in-law, and with his younger brother, but who just doesn't quite fit in with the norms of the society. It's the second time I have seen him in a romantic comedy, and I loved it. I've been trying to find a reason to like this movie, but all I can say is that the cast is excellent, the story is very intriguing, and the direction is top notch. One thing I really liked was how the son and daughter were portrayed as young adults, and there is no hidden sex scene. It's just an age difference. If you are interested in the story of a young man trying to make it in his father's world, then I would recommend this movie.

I can't say that I have seen any films more moving, more emotional and more true to the realities of life than the Pulitzer Prize winning "9/11", and I've seen some truly awful films, but this one surpasses them all. This is a film that I can see the whole family watching together, a film that is not only touching but offers a message of hope and a reminder of the seriousness of the tragedies that befall us in this world. In the movie, we see the love that can be built between a father and a daughter. As the film progresses, we see that they are both young and determined, and that they are not only determined but that they are willing to sacrifice everything to be with each other. We see their stories about their families, and we see them grow and become stronger. We see the impact that the tragedies in their lives had on them. We see that this is not the first time they have been touched by tragedy, but the first time that they have been able to say, "It will not be the last time". I hope that this film will be seen by people who will see it with an open mind and a heart of love.

This movie is much better than I thought. It was the first time I saw Jim Carey and thought he was excellent. I am not surprised he got nominated for an Oscar. There was also good chemistry between the two main characters. They were very believable. I think it would be difficult to find a better cast than these two. But I do not think anyone should be disappointed that Jim Carey did not win the Academy Award for Best Actor. This was a very strong year for actors. And this movie will be remembered as one of the best films of 2000. It will be well remembered in the future. This movie was well worth the money to see.

After the success of the 10 year film of Christopher Reeves I was keen to see what I can do with a character I've never seen before, and how do I fill the screen without ruining the story? I know you have to fill the screen with a good story, but what makes this film worth seeing, is its characterization and direction. I don't want to spoil the story for anyone, but it's not a traditional happy ending, instead it's a battle of egos and emotions. Although this is a new story for most of the cast, all of them have their own way of presenting their characters, and I'm sure that, no matter how many times you see it, you'll pick up the nuances that make them who they are. It's a very personal story, and many will want to see more, so I hope you give this film a chance.

Based on a story by John Buchan and Bruce McDonald, '9/20/73' is a low-budget, low-budget independent film that draws on the famous student protest of 1969 at the University of California, Berkeley, where the 'free speech' demonstrators occupied buildings, cut off utilities, and marched on campus, leading to the resignation of Chancellor Robert D. White. As if the idea of a student occupation weren't enough, the story moves forward with the post-graduate student Paul McLaughlin (Scott Glenn) growing up and with his frustration and alienation from his peers growing up in a post-secondary school environment. '9/20/73' doesn't go into any detail on the events that led up to the resignation of White, but we know that the demonstrations that lead to his resignation were orchestrated by a white supremacist named David Horowitz who was looking to destabilize the college system in the '60s. '9/20/73' is a very low-budget film, and I can't say that the actors were fantastic, but they were OK. Glenn plays the role of a 'white trash' hippie kid who grows up in the 1960s hippie generation, and for the first half of the film he just plays the role, but by the end of the film he shows signs of maturity and acceptance of his sexual orientation, although it's not really until later in the film that he expresses that he's gay. I think that the film's main strength is in its way of portraying the 1960s hippie generation, which is done so well. '9/20/73' is a very downbeat and depressing film, but I think that the period is portrayed in such a way that makes it more interesting and actually, it's even more interesting than the actual events that led to the resignation of Chancellor White. I highly recommend this film, and I think that it's worth checking out.

This movie is incredible. I love the way it has a natural flow, a fun musical feel. I also love that the director didn't over-do the special effects, or show too many of the extras. It was all the more good that the actors were all great. The performance of the actors was phenomenal, especially Elisabeth Shue who I'm sure didn't do anything she wasn't a perfectionist. She is just a marvelous actress. She's a woman of considerable ability and talent. And she is so sensitive, such a brilliant actress, so touching and pure and loving and a sweet and wonderful person. All of her acting was incredible. I can't wait to see the next film from her. I really hope she is on the Oscar list. I don't think she's been nominated yet, but she should be. She was amazing. I'm just stunned by the emotion she showed. The only problem is, I'm also a bit upset that the director, who I really liked, didn't make the movie much longer. He could have easily extended it into one hour, maybe even two hours, and it would have been much better. But he didn't, and that's a major flaw. Anyway, I really think this is a great movie. Go see it. I love it. Thank you, Charlotte Lewis.

I just saw this movie today and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The movie is about a poor Chinese immigrant who has been forced to settle in the big city of New York. This immigrant gets a job at a high-class department store and falls in love with an employee. This film has a unique look in terms of direction and story telling. This movie is one of the most memorable and powerful movies I have ever seen. It gives us a glimpse of the city from the perspective of the poor immigrant. I highly recommend it.

This was a good movie. I loved the acting, the set, the music, and everything else. I thought this was an underrated movie. The actors were all great. I especially liked Ryan Gosling, he did an excellent job playing Dustin. I loved the set, which is similar to the one in Cloud Atlas. I thought this was a great movie to watch with your friends. It was also a great movie to watch with your parents. It was an exciting and suspenseful movie. I loved it and would recommend it to anyone. I can't wait to see the second one!

Cute, funny, and a bit lighthearted. It's not a perfect film, but if you're in the mood for a light and funny romantic comedy, you'll probably like it. It's not supposed to be a masterpiece, but it's nice to see that all the Disney-ites can find something to like about it.

The movie is very good. A story that is almost impossible to accept. The film starts when a young woman leaves her husband and goes with her friends to live in the countryside and meets a guy named Adam. She is very angry when she leaves him and in a very sad situation she goes to live with her friend who is married. Adam is her friend, he has a kid, a boy named Jake who is cute, and he needs his mother's help. The problem is that Adam does not have a wife, and that is why Adam is separated. When Adam is together with his wife, she tells him that she will be very sad if he does not have a wife and goes to the forest with Jake to find the nearest village. In the forest, Adam meets with a boy named Max, a little girl named Sara, and a boy named Pedro. The forest is beautiful, and a beautiful story starts. The movie is interesting, it is well-made. The acting is good. The directing is good. I liked the movie very much, and I do not want to say anything about the story, because I do not want to spoil the movie for people. I think that the movie is about two main things: a young woman who feels so strongly about her husband that she leaves him and her friend for the forest, and how the two friends meet and fall in love with each other. I think that the story is very good, and I give it a 9/10.

Caught this on HBO late night.I know, I know. It's one of those movies that doesn't necessarily live up to the hype. This is a little more serious than your usual film, and it shows. The acting was spot on, as was the pace of the film. It's also a little underrated. I loved the style of the film, and I loved the soundtrack. I would highly recommend it.

In the 40's, Charlie Harnett (played by David Strathairn) is the lead singer for a rock group, The Dead Kennedys. He is also the youngest son in a very wealthy family. Charlie works at a bank and his wife Judy (played by Natalie Portman) is a good mother. One day, after work, he gets an urgent call from his sister, who wants to meet Charlie. He goes to meet her at the hotel and he sees a photographer posing for a picture. He asks him for a picture and the photographer says no, but Charlie does not give up and ask again. He then goes to the hotel room where he sees his wife's body in the bed. He then goes to the bathroom to look for the pictures and he finds his brother's dead body. He tries to talk to his brother to no avail. He then gets in a car accident. The driver of the car gets killed and Charlie is left for dead. Judy tries to find him. Charlie manages to get to the airport and flies to Miami where he is given a taxi to go to the island of Anglesea. He gets a chance to talk to his brother who is also on the island. They discover the island is also owned by their father and they must get the money. Charlie discovers that his father is leaving and he is going to Anglesea for a long time. The film is a dark comedy with great performances from all of the actors. David Strathairn and Natalie Portman do a very good job. The comedy in this film is also very funny and a very good movie. There are many good messages in this film. One of them is the fact that we cannot tell who is the good guy and who is the bad guy. I recommend this film to any of you who are fans of David Strathairn or Natalie Portman. I rate this film 9/10.

This is a really good movie, a bit slow, but the characters are wonderful, the plot is great and the pace is just right, and it ends with a big happy conclusion. I would recommend it highly. I know many will disagree with me, but I think this movie is very good, and very worthy of a high rating, and I can't help but want to watch it again and again. It's really great.

A great film that would make a great documentary on the subject. It's well acted and well made. But it's not easy to watch, but that's what makes it great.

Two years after the traumatic death of his wife, Markham Mitchell (Clive Owen) is forced to move from rural Ontario to a large urban city. After an accident during the move he begins a second job as a small time drug dealer in a local bar. While at the bar he meets the charming and wealthy Loretta (Gwyneth Paltrow). He is quickly drawn to her but the lure of money brings him back to his roots. The film follows Markham as he deals with his emotions and the effects of losing his wife. The film is well directed and its a great romantic drama that keeps your interest throughout the film. This film is a very unique film and I think that if you have not seen it then you should. It is a very unusual romantic drama but it is a very well acted film. I think that this is one of the best films of the year and I think that it will go down in history as one of the best films of the year.

Being a big fan of Rainer Maria Rilke, I had high expectations of this film. The directors got it right. It's very moving. I watched it with my son, who is very mature and intelligent. He wasn't able to look away. It was like he was watching a documentary about someone who had been through so much. It's not the kind of film you would watch for amusement, it's the kind of film you watch to understand and feel for a character. And Rainer Maria Rilke is one of my heroes, I just wish I could say the same thing about this film.

After seeing what everyone is saying about this movie I figured I would not like it as much as others and give it a rating lower than 5. However, when I saw how well the plot was executed I decided to give it a 9. I would say it is a movie that could have been very good but could have been done better. To me, there are only 3 problems with the movie: The actors are not what you would expect from the actors in a movie like this. If they weren't in this movie you would think it was just an audition. The other 2 are the script, the dialogue and the ending. The script is a mess, the dialogue is a mess and the ending is a mess. The only good thing is the music and the two dancing girls are beautiful. It is worth watching just for the dancing girls. However, I would only recommend this movie to people who like this genre of movies.

This is the story of a love-hate relationship between the two protagonists. One is a British spy and the other a "hard nosed" German. They meet at a time when the Berlin wall was still up, and decide to become partners. Initially they are very reluctant and resentful of each other. The tension between the two lovers builds to a peak in the story's climax. After seeing this movie, I recommend to anyone who loves romantic stories, especially "classics".

Let me begin by saying that this is one of my favorite films of all time. I've seen it several times and it never gets old. The story is simple and to the point and the actors are superb. The main character, (his name is Michael Rosenbaum) is a young gay man who lives in New York. He is searching for someone to love and he chooses to be in love with another man. That is all I'm going to say. Now onto the screenplay. The film is based on a true story, so this movie is real. It is very hard to translate a true story to film. I would say this is one of the few movies that has a very good adaptation, but I would definitely not say it is perfect. I think that it could have been more focused on the relationship between Michael and Max, the best friend he has. This is where the film would have been more focused. The movie is well written and really thought out. This movie has a strong message about love and about accepting who you are. This movie really says that if you are in love with someone, it is okay to show who you are. This is a movie that will bring a tear to your eye and I would highly recommend it. If you don't like it, it's because you don't understand the message. I've seen this movie many times and I will continue to see it and I will still love it.

I haven't seen any of Lisa's previous films, but from what I've seen I really like this one. It was really good and I was surprised at how good it was. I think the acting was really good. Lisa was really funny and real and that's the way Lisa is. I thought the directing was very good. It really made you feel that you were there and in that situation. It was very impressive. The story was great. I liked how the characters were put into situations and they just solved the problem or solved it for themselves. I also thought the music was awesome. I loved it. I think the movie was really good and I really recommend it to anyone who likes movies that are very good. I give this a 9 out of 10.

Saw this film at the Sundance Film Festival. It's very, very well made. This is a film that deals with the American Dream, and how you can have everything in life, but yet you are too afraid to make the first move. Alex Pettyfer is excellent. The entire cast, in my opinion, was wonderful. The story itself is wonderful and the acting is incredible. I was pleasantly surprised at how well-done this film was. I loved how it was told from the point of view of the characters, as opposed to just the plot itself. I thoroughly enjoyed this film.
