Funny., 11 February 2011
9/10

Funny, funny, funny . . .

Low-fi movie, that has a "homemade" feel to it . . . but it's FUNNY. And it's edited very well as far as pacing goes.

Want more from this filmmaker.

Why do I have to write ten lines to make a review.

That's really annoying.

I said what I wanted to say.

Good film. Worth watching. Oh my God! I have to write even more to submit this review! That's 3 times now. Maybe now this will be enough text or lines to submit my review.

One more line for good measure. Ugh.

One of the best TV series ever ..., 18 September 2010
10/10

Just about perfect in every way. Just a real and authentic portrayal of teens that comes across as so genuine and funny. And I loved how the series followed different characters in each episode and fleshed them out. Kudos to all the actors, writers, directors and editors that participated in this series . . . from the leads to the smaller characters. So many talents seemed to really find their start with this series. In fact, re-watching the series this last year, I noticed Ben Foster in a really small role talking about "Three's Company" and he seemed almost in-recognizable . . . but he's so funny -- he commits so completely to his role. It's never overplayed for laughs, and I think that's what makes it so timeless and so great.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for those of you who haven't experienced this TV series.

Good performance by Gere, 1 July 2009
8/10

I think this is the first performance I've seen from Gere that was really, really good. He's definitely always been a solid actor . . . at least, I've always thought. But, he's been fairly limited in the the "range" of roles he's had, and I thought he did a nice job here creating a real character out of something that could have easily been played too big and drifted into caricature. Kudos, Gere.

Same to Eisenberg and Terrance Howard. Really solid performances. And I enjoyed the story a lot. Fell into it easily -- which I think is the mark of a well directed film.

I had no expectations when I saw the movie, and had no idea what it was about. So, it was a pleasant surprise.

Really great movie!, 1 July 2009
10/10

I enjoyed this movie immensely. Really good story and great themes of isolation, parenthood, etc.

I'm impressed at the consistent quality of pixar pictures. Really well structured/thought out stories that aren't riddled with clichés. It's like a breath of fresh air -- it's as if the execs find the right artists, and let them do their thing and leave them alone. I assume. Who knows.

Anyway, highly recommended if you haven't already seen this picture. It was the first 3-D film I've seen since Jaws 3-D. :-) The technology has improved somewhat.
