That Thing You Do! (1996)
This movie is the greatest. I saw it several years ago, but just recently purchased it (as well as the kickin' soundtrack) and have fallen in love. Mr. Tom Hanks is absolutely brilliant. He is so fresh in his writing and story line. I couldn't ask for much more in a movie.
The only reason I gave it a 9 instead of a 10, was because when I watched the featurette, I saw so much more to this movie that had been cut out. I wish it had all been left in. Even in the theatrical preview, there is a scene where Lenny and his gal pal are eating spaghetti together and that is nowhere to be found in the movie. Also, why doesn't T. B. Player have a name? The music is awesome, and Mr. Hanks couldn't have chosen better people to play the parts. WAY TO GO ON THIS ONE!!!
G.I. Jane (1997)
WAY TO GO JANE!!!
I absolutely loved this movie. I feel that it let's women know that they can do anything they want to do. She never backed down and I was SO proud. It was terrible though that the ONLY way they could TRY to keep her from succeeding in her endeavors was to call her a lesbian and for her Master Chief to try and rape her. I am so glad she finally 'earned her keep' with her class mates. Demi Moore was perfect for her role as Jane - Good casting call! Overall, this is a rough movie, but kept me sitting on the edge of my seat the entire time. I have this movie and have watched it numerous times. Way to go Jane!!!
You've Got Mail (1998)
Funny, entertaining and tear jerker!!
I thought You've Got Mail was funny, entertaining and concluded with the tear jerker at the end. Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan ALWAYS hit it off on the screen. They were both perfectly cast and just like in Sleepless In Seattle, I gave the shows two thumbs up!! I have this movie, and love watching it every few months. What a romantic comedy. I felt myself wishing I was in Meg Ryan's shoes the whole time. Highly recommended!!!!
The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996)
Very Action Packed yet gruesome at times
Lots and lots of blood... that is how I have to start this out. The Long Kiss Goodnight, definitely had a lot of action, and kept you on the edge of your seat throughout it's entirety. I am not a big Geena Davis fan, but I feel she was perfect for her character as Charly (A.K.A. Sam). Brutally honest and tough one moment yet soft and motherly the next. Samuel Jackson was wonderful as Mitch. He always has that gruff appearance that can throw you a curve when necessary. Once again I have to rave on David Morse's performance as Luke (A.K.A. Daedalus). He went from wonderfully kind to torturous in seconds. I loved it!! Overall this was a good movie, but if you are faint at heart (regarding blood, bodily explosions, etc) then this is not for you.
Forrest Gump (1994)
Forrest Gump is one of those movies where you want to jump through the screen and give the helpless a big hug and help them along life's way. Tom Hanks did a beautiful job as Forrest Gump. I don't think they could have chosen a better person for the part. Mykelti Williamson (Benjamin 'Bubba' Bufford-Blue) was superb and very believable. For months after this movie, the kids were going around the house trying to think up new 'shrimp' recipes! Robin Wright (Jenny) was really good. Her character was one that you wanted to love yet hate, but not in a bad way. Forrest loved Jenny so very much and only when she REALLY needs him, she turns to him in the biggest way.
I highly recommend this movie for the whole family. It is fun, loving, sensitive and amazing all at the same time. I gave it a 10!!!
Sleepless in Seattle (1993)
AWESOME love story!!!
I absolutely love Sleepless In Seattle. The reason I gave it a 9 instead of a 10, was because Annie (Ryan) was second guessing her fiance' and ended up leaving him for another man. That may be fine for some, but if she had such an undeciding attitude towards him in the first place, then she should have told him. Otherwise, this was a very well-put-together funloving-romantic comedy! I have this movie and like to watch it every few months. Well worth the wait!
Pretty Woman (1990)
A definite Rags 2 Riches!
Pretty Woman is a wonderful love story overall, if you can get beyond the scary possibility that it may teach teenagers that prostitution will get you far someday. I don't want my daughter thinking that way, so she won't be watching this movie until she is old enough to understand the background. Julia Roberts has the perfect body and attitude for her role as Vivian Ward. Richard Gere fits perfectly into the 'rich man' role and does a wonderful job as Edward Lewis. Overall it is funny yet has a tear jerker end... a definite rags 2 riches!
The only thing I can say bad about this musical is that some of the words/lyrics (as in the song Grease Lightning) are NOT appropriate for children. The overall movie was spectacular! I just thought Olivia Newton John was superb as Sandra D. I am not a big Travolta fan, but he too was cast perfectly for the part of Danny. I have this movie, and enjoy watching it a few times a year. Would recommend! Had to give a 9 out of 10 though, due to the unbelievable language in certain parts.
Hearts in Atlantis (2001)
I had wanted to see Hearts In Atlantis since I saw the theatrical trailer on television. I love Anthony Hopinks and his role as Ted was amazing. There could have been more 'magical' times in this movie, as the trailer had lead us to believe the movie was about. I personally didn't know much about the movie and when I started watching it, upon the meeting of Ted and little Bobby (Anton Yelchin), I personally was taken a back and thought there might be some relations between the two, which thank God turned out to be completely innocent. Their bond was amazing. If I were Bobby's mother, I wouldn't have been as trusting to leave my son with an older man as she did.
The casting of David Morse as the older Bobby was an excellent choice. His expressions tell everything. You actually 'feel' what he is feeling, right along with him. David Morse is amazing. Look at his eyes when he hears the news about Carol. He is a wonderful actor.
Overall, this was a good movie... again, I would have liked to see more 'magical' parts coming from Hopkins.
Proof of Life (2000)
Lots of action, yet disappointing in several areas
Proof Of Life~ How else to completely describe it - Good AND Bad. I feel that David Morse, cast as Peter Bowman, did a superb job in his character. He was able to bring that stern/silent way about him, out and break free into anger at times. Meg Ryan was definitely not cast correctly in the character of Alice Bowman. Her lustful affair with the Negotiator Terry Thorne (Russell Crowe) was unbelievable (although it lasted a whole 10 seconds). I cannot imagine being so worried about the life of a kidnaped family member, and being sexually interested in the person trying to save their life. The ending of this movie was also heart-wrenching, once Peter was rescued. The ending could have been better... a more heartfelt greeting of her husband or something...
Overall a good movie, but it could have been plotted a bit tighter.
