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.
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.
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.
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.
