The movie has been on my watch list for sometime. And now, I finally got the chance to watch it. And I must say, I really like it. I think it is a very good movie, with a nice plot, with a very good cast. The plot is very original and well thought out. The characters are well developed and well acted. The dialogues are very well written, the scenes are beautifully shot, and the music is also very well written. The only problem I have with the movie is that it's too slow, but that's just my opinion. So in conclusion, I highly recommend this movie. My vote is seven. Title (Brazil): "The Youth Without Youth" (Te Correas Nascos)

A very interesting film about the historical significance of the word 'Dixie', an historical river in the United States. Director Steven C. McQueen has recreated the river with lots of filming and that leads to a very interesting film, though it may not be for everyone. The only other film that I have seen that depicts this river in the same way is "The Sun Also Rises". This film is a little different, and a little slow, but worth watching.

This film is for those who like westerns, and those who like to have some fun with their film watching experience. If you are a western fan, this movie is a must see, if you are not a western fan, you will probably like this film. I have watched this film many times, and I have seen it several times more, but I think I still have not gotten the hang of it. I love the western movies, and the main character of the film is John Wayne. John Wayne is a legend in the western genre, and this film shows his background, his work, his time, and his dedication. Wayne's character is a famous fighter, and the director has made a film about the famous boxer, John Wayne. There is also a great supporting cast, with numerous memorable characters, including Mickey and Maude, John Wayne's wife, and a very good character by Jim Caviezel. The main character of the film is John Wayne. It is a fascinating story, and I love it, it is not a typical western movie, it is very unique. I think this film is not for everyone, but if you like westerns and you like to have fun, then go see this film, I think you will like it.

While I enjoyed this film, I think it fails to live up to the potential it may have had. I think the story, although intriguing, was poorly executed and the film did not flow. The characterizations of all the characters were great, but there were not enough of them. If the movie had focused more on those that were not in the film, then the story could have been more powerful. Also, I think the film could have been more realistic about the way the Union soldiers behaved during the war. The Union soldiers did not appear to be part of a gang, which is the stereotype that was prevalent during the Civil War. The writers could have made the film more realistic about the behavior of Union soldiers. I think the director was trying to portray the Union soldiers as the good guys, and it could have been a better film. But I also think the actors and the director were trying to make the film realistic about the Civil War. I think the story was better than I thought it would be and it was a decent film.

The movie was entertaining enough, but I would have preferred a longer movie to see what the actors are really like. Some of the characters were just plain awful, and some of the dialogue was a little weak. The movie was actually entertaining in a way. But I would not watch it again. I would not recommend this movie. It is a great movie for people who like action movies and like the old westerns. I don't think it is a very good movie to watch if you are not a fan of the old westerns.

It was actually rather good. But it felt a bit rushed. I don't know if it was just the pacing or if they wanted to make it more than just a simple, straight-forward western. It wasn't really too bad but it felt rushed. And the love story between the 2 leads seemed forced. I think they should have made the film more of a 2-part story with more depth and less romance. It was just a bit too quick. It also didn't make sense that the evil men would not just turn their guns on the men but wouldn't just turn their guns on them. There were no lines that said "they'll kill you if you kill me". It was very confusing and I didn't like it. There was no real character development in this movie. The two leads seemed to be getting along quite well but the love story was a bit of a let down. I didn't like the script and I think the actors were a bit underused. It was a bit too long. I didn't like the pace. It felt a bit too slow and it seemed a bit rushed. Overall, I think this is a decent movie. It's not a bad movie but it's definitely not a great movie either. It's not bad but it's not good either. 7/10

Not a bad film, but nothing really to write home about. It's mostly a period piece and the movie takes place in 1875. That's about it. There are a couple of songs in the film that may have added to the movie's appeal, but nothing major. The movie was obviously made with the money that was available for a short period of time. It is not good enough to stand on its own as a movie. The movie is average at best. The film also lacks some interesting characters and does not portray the Texas frontier very well. That is probably the best thing about the movie, as it is almost like a historical account of the frontier. If you like a good historical film, then this is the one for you. I recommend this to people who like to see westerns, period pieces, and historical films. It's worth a watch. 7/10

Drew Barrymore's first feature film and the breakout performance of her career. Although a bit predictable and cliched, the movie is still entertaining and at times even exciting. At times it is hard to tell who is an actor and who is a character. One thing is for sure, Drew is great. She portrays a rough, rebel, tough, strong, and fearless woman who is only interested in getting justice for her husband's murder. At times it is hard to tell if she is acting or being herself. The character is a reflection of her own character, who was so much different from Drew that it made her a better actress. She is smart, ruthless, and dangerous, which makes her unique. I think that Drew has the best performance of her career. This is definitely one of her best movies. She is beautiful, strong, and very intense. I would recommend it for people who like to watch movies about women. It is not a perfect movie, but it is very entertaining and entertaining at times.

I don't know if it's just me, but this film was absolutely brilliant! I watched this film with a group of friends and I was totally taken by it. I watched it for a second time, this time alone and it was even better! The scenery was fantastic, the actors were fantastic and the story was quite original. There were so many references to westerns that I can't say who they were, but I was captivated by the plot. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to see a great film, because it is very different to any western you've ever seen before. I loved it!

In Texas, a town with an independent spirit lives a band of outlaws who hunt down women and kill them for sex. This is a hard-boiled tale of the U.S.A., where a man finds out the truth about his wife's death. All in all, a compelling film with a real character study of a small town. I don't understand why it wasn't more well-known in the U.S.A. and how it didn't get a wider release. It's still a fine film and a very engaging film.

An Australian-Canadian co-production, based on a novel by Gary C. Larsen, about a young man's attempt to escape the country from its draconian anti-immigration laws. The film follows four characters as they search for work in a far-flung border town. It is a grim story of immigrants trying to survive, with an interesting set-up for the characters, and some good performances from the young actors. I've heard this is one of the most harrowing films I've ever seen. It's very, very, very hard to watch, and the best way to describe it is that it's like an eighties/nineties slasher film, but with a white-bread tone. It's not as dark as such, but it's a little more gritty and depressing than I expected it to be. I didn't expect it to be as dark as it was, and it was probably the hardest thing to watch. The film is very hard to watch, and the violence is very intense and shocking. I recommend it, but it is very, very disturbing.

As a fan of the original and a fan of Clint Eastwood, I was not surprised when I learned that a remake was being made. Eastwood is not in this version but still makes an appearance as a government agent who wants to find the boy's father, a terrorist. This is a good film, the story line is good and the action is pretty good. It is worth seeing because it is a good action film. I give it a 7/10

I saw this movie last night and it was one of the most amazing movies I have ever seen. The acting was amazing. The direction was amazing. The story was amazing. I can't believe I never heard of this movie before. It is just so well written and told. I can't believe this was the first film directed by Wes Craven. This is truly a masterpiece. A perfect example of what a movie should be. A movie that anyone can enjoy, regardless of age, sex, race, religion, or political beliefs. This is an amazing movie that has a lot to say and make you think. I highly recommend it to anyone that has a strong will and a love for movies. I really hope that there are a few more films made like this one in the future.

This film takes place in the small town of Barnegat, New Jersey. Barnegat is the gateway to the Indian's land. The Indians come to the town in search of gold. Their leader is an Indian named Red, and his two sons, a boy named Billy and a girl named Anna. Billy is determined to steal a "red scalp" and then turn it into gold. This film is based on the book by Peter Farrelly, and is directed by Mike Nichols. The film stars Michael Shannon, Jane Fonda, Bruce Dern, John Goodman, and William H. Macy. The story is about the early life of Red and Billy. They grew up in the small town, but left to live with Anna's family in nearby Lake George, New Jersey. The Indians who lived there were led by the chief, his two sons, and Billy. The Indians tried to kill Billy and Anna, but they are unsuccessful. Billy was caught by the Indians and his scalp turned into gold. Billy decided to return to the village. He finds Anna, who is now married to a white man. They plan to rob the Indian village. Billy and Anna want to stay with the Indians, but Billy will not go with them. Billy does not want to leave the Indians. In order to protect the Indians, he is forced to steal a "red scalp." He meets an Indian named John McCloud, and they become friends. The next day, they are forced to steal another scalp. This film is well-acted and the characters are well-developed. The Indian chief, his sons, Billy, and Anna, are all interesting characters. They are all realistic and there are no stereotypical characters. The story is well-paced, and there are some great action scenes. The film is worth watching.

David Mackenzie directs this movie about the 1936 Wild Bill Hickok Expedition in the Ozarks of North Carolina. There is a lot of history that is not presented here in the movie. But it is a very enjoyable movie to watch and to learn more about the events of the expedition. The characters were all well-developed and played well by all actors. The history is good but the movie does not seem like a documentary. It is a movie about a group of people who are trying to survive in the wild. The director focuses on the personalities of the men rather than the facts. I think it would be a good movie to show to history buffs or to someone who loves to learn about history.

In recent years there has been a huge increase in the production of films dealing with the history of the American Civil War. The issue of slavery is a topic that is not easily brushed off and this film, based on a true story, takes a fresh look at the issue. It is quite well done, but is not really very original. The story revolves around a couple of students who come from New England to the south to study the history of the Civil War. One of them, played by Tyler Perry, is a big fan of the Confederate flag and wears it proudly to his classes. The other is played by Matt Damon who was part of the Georgia 4th State militia and was a slave owner himself. He doesn't know this and is unable to avoid thinking about the slavery issue when his friend tells him about it. The film moves pretty quickly but there is a lot of talk and little action. The character development is pretty poor, but the movie is entertaining and the acting is good. The battles are well done, and the directing is very good, especially for a low budget film. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good historical movie.

It's a shame that "The Last Detail" came out a year after "Chinatown" (1973), but that didn't stop it from earning the highest grade from the academy. It's certainly no masterpiece, but it's also no failure either. Both films are about the characters, the relationship between them, and their sense of loss and redemption. Here, the characters are on a road trip across the country, a road trip that is both a reunion and a trip back to their hometown. However, one gets the feeling that the journey of the characters is both boring and pointless. We don't care about them, and we don't really get a sense of their journey. I guess that's what makes the film "one of the best" in the Academy Awards' history, but it's not really a great film. It's certainly not "great" in any way. I guess it's only worth a watch if you're a fan of the genre. If you're looking for a different view of it, you won't like it.

As the trailer for this film made clear, this is one of those "so-bad-it's-good" films. I can't really understand why this was made, but it certainly isn't the worst film I've ever seen. I was so disappointed in the film that I actually watched it again on DVD a couple of days ago. It wasn't that I was bored at all, I just didn't like it. The characters were rather wooden and I could feel the director trying to force the characters into a character. It was a huge problem for me. The music and the cinematography were the best things about the film. I was impressed with the movie and was surprised by the performance of the lead character. The cinematography was also really good, the lighting and the colours used were really beautiful. I thought the film was a real mess and could've been better. I think the film was a bit of a misfire and probably the best thing about it was the music and the cinematography.

This movie is a great piece of work, one of the best war movies that I have seen. It shows what happens to those who die fighting in war and the ultimate price that the dead have to pay. It is quite realistic, even though it does not include any major battles. It is one of the few war movies that does not portray the battle as some event in the movie. It shows the battle as the actual thing that happened, and it shows that the cost of war is far higher than what most people would expect. The most important thing is that it shows the cost of war, and it does it in a way that makes it even more realistic. The way the film is shot and the way the film is done is very good. It is an excellent film, and one that I recommend to anyone.

This is a movie that made me want to read more about the Civil War and how the Union was defeated. I watched this movie at home on my laptop and then bought the DVD. The movie has a great plot, good acting, great scenery and beautiful women. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes Civil War history or romance. My favorite character was Lincoln. He was a character I could relate to and was a strong character. I also liked the idea that he was a slave, he was made the hero by his owner's will. The movie is not for everyone, but if you love Civil War movies or history this is a movie you should watch.

What could have been a generic historical action movie turned out to be a highly entertaining, engrossing and entertaining experience. It's great to see a western with a strong female lead. The lead, Natalie Portman, does a great job, and John Hurt is also great in his role. Overall, it's a movie that has a lot of fun to it. It has a unique plot and story, and it keeps you guessing until the very end. It's a great movie that will entertain you for a long time.

I had no idea this movie was based on a true story. I think I would have given it a 10. It was very good. I have never seen a movie that has made me cry like this. This movie had a lot of drama and it was so real. It was so heartbreaking to see so many families broken. I think it was the best movie I have seen all year. I have seen so many movies that I think I could have liked more than this one. I would have given it a 10 if I could. The acting was really good, and the story was very well done. It was so tragic. I don't think I will ever be able to watch this movie again, because it was so real.
