Finding Vivian Maier (2013)
Heart warming! A gem!
What a wonderful movie! It was funny, sad, touching, interesting. A little bit of everything rolled into one.
John Maloof. Big props to you! Fascinating find, fascinating story. It's great that you took the time to bring us all such a treasure.
Vivian's photographs are truly one of a kind. Looking at some of them literally brought tears to my eyes. Not of sadness, but of joy. Truly, heartwarming.
If you're in the mood for a little laughter, a few tears, a bit of mystery and a look into the lives of some very interesting people, than I highly recommend this movie. Fabulous!
Too dramatic, too scripted
I really, really want to like this show. I love cooking shows, I love Top Chef, I love Gordon Ramsey. For me, this show is far too dramatic, the judges are too hostile and there is not enough focus on cooking...especially the fun of it.
Who is Joe going to yell at next? How many more plates is he going to slam into the garbage? For Christ-sakes these are amateur cooks, not Michelin starred chefs! It's all a bit too scripted and too much for me.
Masterchef Australia is a joy to watch, unfortunately, the same can not be said about Masterchef U.S.
Texas Killing Fields (2011)
Disjointed and disappointing
I was very excited to see this film when I heard they were making a movie based on the true events in 'the Texas killing fields'. I thought it might be reminiscent of 'Zodiac' which was superbly done (in my opinion).
I really wanted to like this movie. It has good actors, and the chance of a great storyline. Unfortunately, that did not help this movie in the least.
First of all, the storyline is confusing. It seems as if we (the audience) are dropped into the middle of a situation and forced to figure out where we are, what's going on etc...
The main characters who are the detectives- Det. Mike Souder (Sam Worthington) and Brian Heigh (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) seem to have a history together, but what it is, I have no idea. The storytelling (again) is so poor and disjointed that we (the audience) are left to ponder that situation as well. Quickly, we are also introduced to a little girl named Anne (Chloë Grace Moretz), who actually does the best acting of anyone in the entire film.
Now, I am getting myself confused just writing this review. Back to the point...I found this movie confusing, disjointed, lacking a clear direction. I could barely understand a word that came out of Sam Worthington's mouth because his fake southern accent was...criminal. ;-) The story left so many holes, no real explanations of the horrors that have and continue to go on since the 1970's. It just did not tie everything in together in a logical sense.
I saw on CBS, that the real detectives that have been working this case, hope that with the release of the movie 'The Texas Killing Fields' some new leads will come to light. After seeing this movie, I highly doubt that, which really is a shame.
Should you watch this movie? Well, I wouldn't, but I know you will be curious to see it just like I was.
Pressure Cooker (2008)
Heartwarming and deeply moving.
Pressure Cooker was charming, heartwarming, funny, sad, deeply moving and joyous.
I was clapping and crying (tears of joy)for the students and their wonderful teacher at the and of the movie. I just loved this film. I feel like these kids are in my heart now and I want all the best for them always. I would love to know what happens to the group as they head off to college and beyond.
The strength and determination of these kids was inspiring to me. The strength and determination of their teacher was just as inspiring. I would watch it again and I will definitely recommend this film. Thumbs WAY up!
