I loved this movie. Although I think they should have kept more of the old songs (which i agree is necessary), but the whole movie was just fantastic. Its like the story of a legend. I would highly recommend this movie for anyone, I just hope they don't change it. I think its good for anyone who wants to watch a movie that is very nostalgic and at the same time tells a story.

Steve McQueen has done a lot of cinema over the years. He has been nominated for an Oscar (for "The Thin Red Line"). He has won an Oscar for "A Beautiful Mind". He has been nominated for another Oscar for "The Prancing Pony" (in 1971). He has also won a Golden Globe for "A Little Princess". And then, he also directed one of the greatest films ever. In "Driving Miss Daisy", the story of a woman going through the chaos of a marriage in the south and the plight of her widowed mother, he has pulled this off. "Driving Miss Daisy" is the story of a white-collar worker who gets involved in the gambling world. He has a wife who is crazy about him, a woman he can't stand (Heidi) and a young daughter who is determined to do anything for him. And it's all the stuff you'd expect in a fairytale. It is. But it is also a very realistic story. The ending is sad and poignant. McQueen has done a wonderful job here. "Driving Miss Daisy" is one of his best films. It is very realistic and wonderful. It is very moving. I loved it. The only negative is that the film is a little bit long and I was a little tired of it. But it is still very good. The cast is wonderful. The supporting cast is also wonderful. Steve McQueen is very talented. His films are very well written. This one is not. It is very good, but it could have been better.

This is a wonderful film, especially in the first half, but it falls apart in the second half. So much has been said about how great the movie is, and for good reason. The first half is so touching and interesting that it makes the rest of the movie look even more boring and mundane. In the first part of the film, the music is so incredible and immersive that you have to think of it as a different genre. Once the music fades away, the film starts to look very dull and boring. The story is not very deep, and at times it just seems like the director lost interest. The only thing that keeps this film from being a total failure is the acting. When the movie is done well, it is very good. The last part of the film is very, very, very bad. The acting is so bad that it makes you think that maybe it was filmed in the 70's, and not in the 80's. The acting is so terrible that it makes the characters look more human than they really are. That was the only reason I gave the movie a 9, not because I hate or hate this film, but because the acting was really, really, bad. All in all, you should see this movie if you love documentaries. Otherwise, it is a really good film, but only on second glance.

First of all let me just say, I'm a huge fan of "Born on the Fourth of July". I've seen it more than 20 times and have loved every single time. So I went into this movie expecting the same thing. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by how good this film was. I was expecting a "Great American Movie" like Citizen Kane or The Godfather. This was much deeper, far more than that. The acting, the directing, the music, everything just was really fantastic. I know a lot of people will say that this is a "romantic film" and "patriotic". But the truth is, this film was a huge step forward for the American film industry. Not since "The English Patient" or "The Exorcist" have I seen a movie about a man's personal struggle to come out of the shadows of the Vietnam war. This film was directed with such sensitivity and understanding, and it just perfectly reflects the spirit of the country. The country still holds its head high, and the state of their economy is still the most stable and optimistic I've seen since the collapse of the Soviet Union. The only thing I would say is that this movie wasn't perfect. Some parts were very sappy. Others were a bit cliche. But what else can I say about this movie? If you are a fan of American cinema, or just want to see something really great, go see this film. You will not regret it. You will not be disappointed.

Starring Sam Niell and Jude Law in an Oscar-worthy performance, T.I. and Charlize Theron in outstanding turns, and a very good performance from a very young Jim Carrey, this is a very good film with great performances from Niell and Theron, a great soundtrack, and a terrific ending. It's a great film with great acting, a great soundtrack, and a great ending.

I can't begin to describe how much I loved this movie. There is so much story in this film. Every character in this movie plays an important part in this life and their story is very interesting. Some of the scenes are very realistic and I can't stop thinking about them. The movie also teaches us a lot about the diversity of Korean society and I can't believe the people who criticize this movie, they should have seen this movie.

This film is a great tribute to the 50s, to the rockers, the fast cars, the music, and most of all the human emotions. The film shows the disintegration of the relationship between a rich man and his children, and the seemingly unending battles between the parents, and the children. It shows the loss of love, the loss of the past and the desire to rebuild. It shows the loss of innocence and the loss of the young desire to be something. This is a truly beautiful and touching film that deserves the utmost praise. Watch it.

A massive nostalgia overload to me. This movie has everything I look for in a movie. True grit. Real men. Incredible acting. On the page, the art of the tale gets erased and you are left with the passion and hope of it all. True stories with deep themes. Wonderful effects and costumes. Lovable characters. A movie I would love to see again and again.

A great drama. There's no question about it. It may not be Oscar material, but it's a well done movie that should be on everyone's list of favorite films. With a movie like "Apocalypse Now," there were bound to be a few over-explanations and omissions that are understandable, but for me, they were always interesting to see because they made you feel like you knew something about the characters. I think that this is the case with "Memento" and "A River Runs Through It." I know that I had a lot of theories as to why certain things happened and what was going on, but then again, most movies do. But, in the case of "Memento" and "A River Runs Through It," I think that the reason for the above statements is much more intimate and very believable. I'll give you a brief summary of the story. Francis Ford Coppola had a good idea for a movie, but a bad movie production company. He thought that the time and money needed to make the film could be made through a movie theater. With a great idea and a talented cast, Coppola decided to use a modest budget to make a feature length film. However, what he did was essentially tear up a screenplay and replace it with his own movie. He added some great songs to the soundtrack that were never recorded and did everything to make the movie seem much more commercial than it was. A lot of critics hated the film, but I enjoyed it because it was a different movie. It was a more personal movie and it gave me a better understanding of what goes on in the minds of people that don't want to believe what they are experiencing. Also, I think that the fact that Coppola himself did a great job on the film is really what makes it great. It's not the director's fault. He did a great job of directing and writing the film, and I think that most people who didn't like it, had their own issues with the way the movie was made. Overall, I really enjoyed the movie, and I think it is one of the best movies of the 90's.

A classic that will never fade away, this is the second movie I have seen from Nicolas Hayek, after "The Producers", where I was very impressed. Now I had expected a typical Hayek movie, but this was different. This movie was about a very mysterious man that appeared in the life of the family, played by Hayek himself. This movie really makes you think. Hayek did an outstanding job in this movie, and I also loved the storyline. Overall, this is a great movie that you will definitely watch over and over. The storyline is also very interesting. I would recommend this movie to any one, and it will make you think. 9/10

I have watched the DVD of this movie in cinema twice, first in 1991 (Pete Weber) and again in 2004 (Jack Black). I have liked both versions of this movie. It's a great movie. One of the few movies to remind me that I'm not alone in this world. The movie is amazing. The score by Wolfgang Tillmans is amazing. It's not as good as "Siegfried and Roy", but it's good enough to help me forget about the bad stuff. "The life of David Copperfield" is the only movie I ever watched that's actually worse than it's supposed to be. Watch this movie only if you have something to do. It's worth it. I always tell people that they should watch this movie only if they have a history. It's not a movie about love. I think it's also a movie about courage, about belief. This is my recommendation: If you have nothing to do, see this movie. It's really a great movie.

I'm a sucker for films about love stories, so I had to see this one. It's not Oscar material, but it's very well done. What I liked about it is that it was an inside look at a world, rather than an inside look at the people. It's a little bit of a tearjerker, but it's a very well done tearjerker. It's not a traditional romantic comedy, but it's not a traditional romantic drama either. I like the way it tells a story, and the way the music is in it is very good. I think it's a very, very good film. I really like it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

First of all, I think this film is a masterpiece and this is a very good decision to make, because the story is a very good and touching story, the only thing which ruins it is the audience which don't want to watch this kind of movie but they don't have any other choice, it's so good that they want to see this type of movie because the story is just amazing, they don't want to see this kind of movie because it's not Hollywood, but they have to see this kind of movie because of the story. If you want to see this type of movie, I suggest you see it!

When I saw the film in the cinema, I was a bit sceptical at first. I've seen the original version and loved it, but I was afraid it would be completely different and bland. Well, I was wrong. Although the film is slightly longer, it is still very much enjoyable and it is enjoyable to see more of what John Lennon had done in the years that followed his death. It was not the original version, which was mostly shot in plain daylight, that got me interested in seeing this film, but the way the flashbacks were written and the fact that so many of them were shot in colour made it so much better. It was made, I think, to portray the changing mood of Lennon's life and to reflect on what he had been through, especially the brief period before his death. When you hear his voice in the old version, you know he's going to be gone, but in the new version, you still hear him, and his words, echoing in your head. The performances are brilliant, especially from the actors who play Lennon's children. There are no special effects, but the time on screen does not seem like it's at all short. The music is very dark and atmospheric, and although there are no great moments, it does not really detract from the film at all. The ending of the film does make me happy, but then the new version of The Beatles' The Help, also released on the same day, makes me happy. I do not regret seeing the film at all, and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who likes British films, especially the British film-makers. See it. You won't regret it.

In The Italian Job, Johnny Depp is a real estate agent who goes undercover in the homes of high-class clients who are in serious need of new furnishings. He encounters a fugitive with no ID, a Romanian thief with a chip on his shoulder, a wife and her middle-age friend. Although the relationships are too close to human nature, Depp's deceptively cold nature and the drama and intensity of his performance prove that a good actor can make a good film. This movie shows the vanity and hypocrisy of the art market. The Italian Job is a fantastic story and even though the soundtrack is an underwhelming, they have set a very strong tone. This movie is an "A" movie and a perfect metaphor for the government, which is the modern day equivalent of a "C".

This movie is really cool, it's interesting to see so many of the actors from the 80s and 90s as actors in the movie, and some of them are really cool too! This movie is about the life of the Beatles in Liverpool in the 60s, and it's a beautiful story about friendship, passion and pain. I really liked how the director captured the 60s, the music, the clothes, and the fashion, it's really awesome! A lot of people probably didn't like this movie because of the strange fact that it is an "artsy" movie. But trust me, this is definitely a "classic" movie!

Clueless at school and with a younger brother who isn't doing very well in school, I had no interest in any of these characters and had no real problem with them being treated poorly. I found the contrast between Michael and "Gary", in particular, wonderful. I kept thinking how refreshing it was to see a boy acting like a man, unlike the way the movie's real-life father is. I would have never guessed he would turn out to be an actual mob boss, or that his friends, who treat him with kid gloves, would turn out to be the most vicious killers in the city. I also loved that Keaton, who I had never seen before, became a force to be reckoned with. The movie is beautifully shot and the soundtrack is phenomenal. I'm looking forward to this film again and it will be one I get to look back on again and again. It's an emotionally stirring story about the struggle of young men in a hard world, and I highly recommend it.

I found that it took a while before I could get into this movie. I watched it twice. First of all, there's the music. I think it fits the movie perfectly. The songs aren't completely original, but they're fun to listen to, especially the ones that "catch you off guard" and make you feel like you're part of the story. The best songs, I believe, are the ones that incorporate melody and rhythm. The rest of the songs are just as good, but are not as interesting to listen to. Most of the music in this movie is fairly cliche and seems quite like "good songs" that most moviegoers can relate to, which may be why they listen to it so much. What is the most amazing is the fact that this movie contains all of these interesting characters and also creates a very compelling story. I feel like this movie can be enjoyed by people of all ages, including children, which is unusual. Also, the movie uses music in the right way and uses songs as a means to convey emotion. My favorite thing about the movie is that it's worth a viewing and I will definitely be watching it again.

Love stories are not for the squeamish, and hence, this movie is an extreme rarity. I don't remember being in the same room as a single person in the entire theater, and as a result, I was able to experience the rest of the movie without interruption. This movie, the kind of movie I always wanted to see, was made.and it shows.

Everyone has been claiming the movie to be a fake or made by a director and actors from another movie, or a director that was good but the actors were bad, etc, etc. But this is the movie you are talking about. The movie has many moments of stunning beauty. The pictures that made it to the screen are breathtaking. The way the movie was shot and edited made you feel it is real. The music was great and added to the visual nature of the movie. There were no dull moments in the movie. The movie made you feel your emotions were to blame. The love story was also touching. The music was great. The performances were very good. I thought the actors that portrayed the men in the movie, were very good in their roles, although the way they were dressed was a bit more stereotypical. The director's and producers should take the blame for this movie not being as well received as it was expected. The movie shows the real and how a man can love a woman to the limit. The love and attraction between two women can never be taken away. If you want to have a good night, and want to watch a romantic film that everyone can enjoy, then go to watch this movie. It has many beautiful scenes, wonderful performances and good music.

It's hard to imagine that this film is almost ten years old, but I can't say that it's not a classic. The movie is highly stylized in the way that it uses frames, and uses contrasting color palettes to tell a story. The story centers around a young boy who has moved from the real world to the virtual. He has no real friends. One day, he meets a girl who is an adressant on the movie world. The boy is enthralled by her. But things go sour when he sees the ads for some girl on the video game. As he plays the game, he meets new and interesting characters. Eventually, the boy finds his way back to the real world, but he is afraid of the virtual world. He is going to move back to the real world to live out the rest of his life. A classic that is still fresh and enjoyable today.

Not a lot of things that can be said about "Summer of '88." There is some poor film quality here and there (especially in the lower half of the film), but overall it's a great look into the lifestyle of American youth during this tumultuous time. The film is full of nostalgic memories, but also an ever-present sense of caution. The camera work is magnificent. The editing is very nice, and I like the camera movement in some of the scenes. The songs are perfect. "Summer of '88" is a great film, and I really think this film is as good as anyone has made it. It's a bit slow, but it's well worth your time.

So I'm watching it in Spanish with my friend who doesn't speak Spanish and I tell her that I would love to hear more from a movie about war and love. I'd love to know how did this war start and what is love. That's why I want to know what happened to those little girls. The reason why I decided to watch this movie was because of the part in which Nico and her brother have a phone conversation about the lost of their mother and how they were brought to Auschwitz. I don't think there is a movie that can tell more about this kind of movie and I will be glad that I did. You could say that this is a movie about the worst period of life and how it affects and changes the people around. This movie is about the end of a time when the film industry had been destroyed by the rise of "teen movies", "musicals" and Hollywood. Not a bad movie, but it's not a very good movie. One of the main problem I had with this movie is that, while I believe that the main character and her brother are honest, I think that the movie tries to get to the point of the point in a slow way, while you don't know what is happening and what is going to happen next. Sometimes the acting is bad, the dialogue is sometimes bad. But it's not an amateur movie that is supposed to be watchable. The only movie that's a good one for you to watch is this one. If you haven't seen it yet, I recommend that you watch it. I think that this is a movie that you will enjoy, but I believe that it's not for everybody.
