Crop And Save
Its a pretty good popcorn flick fun!
I was wondering how it was possible to create a film with such a plot and make it in any way interesting, and I got the answer to my question. 'Unstoppable' is based on a true story, but the difference is contained in the fact that in real life the train case was solved almost peacefully though not easily, as no one was injured in the process, while the film bravely grants several victims. Indeed, the effect wouldn't be the same, if they had omitted these changes. I liked the movie. Cast played good. Rosario Dawson as Connie performed the part of a lady, who wholeheartedly worries about other people's lives, with great dignity, while Washington and Pine added a desired down-to-earth touch. To sum it up, personally for me, it was a very surprising success in making a cool action movie without villains (the train and the ruling top that takes wrong decisions do not count). I was absolutely absorbed in the film.
Moulin Rouge! (2001)
he music is decent and the costumes and set design are fantastic. Plus McGregor and Kidman are awesome.
When I saw this one a year or two ago, I couldn't imagine how I existed without knowing about this musical masterpiece. It's a spectacular film, a beautiful love story told by a poverty-stricken English poet, and tons of songs by distinguishing singers and bands of 20th century (from Marilyn Monroe and the Beatles to Elton John and Madonna). The songs performed by the cast are music to the ears, and choreography is magnificent. There's only one amazing original song ('Come What May') in the film. Probably, the only thing that I didn't like about this movie is over-drama. Indeed, too much drama, too many tears shed by Christian, by Satine, even by Toulouse. Anyways, it's one of my top favorites and is therefore highly recommended.
The Social Network (2010)
I liked it - a lot actually - but it came just short of reaching me on an emotional level.
Some time ago, many people openly demonstrated their skepticism about the idea of making a film devoted to the Facebook founders but today and at this very moment, no touch of irony is seen, while the movie confidently enters the top of best flicks of this year. So many passionate praises, so many rosy predictions, such high ratings. So what's so great about 'The Social Network' that attracts so much intent attention and exceedingly good responds? I don't have the answer. The movie deals with betrayal and greed and is recommended to everyone. The film is not about how facebook was found but how all Mark Zuckerberg's relationships drift apart as he seems to go ahead.
I Am Sam (2001)
I would recommend it to all
The film delivers a great story of love, faithfulness, devotion and sincerity. In some parts, the pace may seem slow and somewhat protracted but in such a moving story it's hardly appreciable. The film is full of affecting moments, so if you're in mood for it, be ready to shed a tear or two. This movie is utterly beautiful, so feel it deeply and follow to the end of the story about Sam struggling for the right to return his daughter Lucy Diamond home. Truly Inspiring. Although, personally I felt certain scenes needed improving; of course with some as great as could be. Finally, the film has a great message: Does being educated prove you to be a worthy parent? Is that all you need? Or maybe something more was important: LOVE!
Gone with the Wind (1939)
My most favorite line 'Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn'
'Gone with the Wind' combines historical and personal story lines, offers a dramatic character-driven plot and every time you see it amazes you with its exquisite perfection. The reasons to love 'Gone with the Wind'.
*Original score. That's what I always appreciate in every movie I see. In 'Gone with the Wind' the sublime music fills you with hope for a better future and creating a perfect mood for every scene in the film.
*Blockbuster-ish type. It's epic.
*Restored version. 'Gone with the Wind' is the first color film to win in the Best Picture category at the Oscars. Fortunately, with it restored, we can enjoy vivid colors of sunset in the famous scenes.
*History.'Gone with the Wind' has a large share of history, bringing events of Civil War to screen, and this makes the movie not just a tale about a capricious girl but of the whole nation and of fighting for equality of all people.
*Successful screen adaptation. It is common that a film spoils and deprives of spice a book it is based upon but definitely not in this case.
*Verisimilitude. Everything, from sets of then American South to many-sided personalities of heroes, makes you believe that they are almost real: Atlanta on fire, hundreds of extras, described in detail and well acted characters with different temperaments.
*Quotes. "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." "With enough courage, you can do without a reputation." "As God is my witness, as God is my witness they're not going to lick me. I'm going to live through this and when it's all over, I'll never be hungry again. No, nor any of my folk. If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill. As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again." "Tara! Home. I'll go home. And I'll think of some way to get him back. After all... tomorrow is another day."
*Cast. Vivien Leigh was best suited to the cast for the role of Scarlett O'Hara. Hattie McDaniel was really fantastic as Mammy
*Characters. For them we can be grateful to the writer and to the cast, of course. Scarlett O'Hara, a southern beauty, capricious and childish in her youth, changes into a strong-willed, materialistic, quick-tempered pseudo-lady and she is a symbol of strength and determination. She shows that before you get something, you have to work, sacrifice or resort to cunning. No matter how hard she works and how much she abases herself before Ashley, she always knows her own value and she reaches almost every goal she marks out. Even though she can't win in love, she will overcome every obstacle and survive any war, any grief, any affliction to befall her.
*Story. Many think it's a story about love, but I, for one, abandon myself to the idea that it's a story about survival and zest for life. For it is life that must be appreciated the most, must be valued, must be made happy. "After all, tomorrow is another day!"
Alice in Wonderland (2010)
Was expecting to laugh more.
Talking about flaws, the first thing that comes to mind is absence of unexpectedness; maybe, the reason lies in the fact that the story is well-known for everybody, but you definitely expect more from the film. I had great expectations from this film as 'Edward Scissorhands' had been one of my favorites; another film from the same writer but 'Alice In Wonderland'is so plain and tranquil in comparison with the previous mentioned film. That was the other side of the coin, but let's turn our minds to the pluses. In the first place, there are visuals, which are rather stunning, but not the same as in 'Avatar'(2009), that cannot be effortlessly beaten.
Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)
I loved this movie.
Probably, the most recognizable Audrey Hepburn's character as Holly, though she was iconic in lots of films and is remembered in a variety of roles. My favorites have always been 'Roman Holiday' and 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'. I loved her tiny black dress, big sunglasses, widely-opened eyes, beautifully penciled eyebrows, fear of love and the Cat altogether. It felt much more heartfelt, eccentric and charming watch the movie. The supporting actors are brilliantly cast, even the Cat. Moreover, the original score and the soundtrack 'Moon River' is especially magnificent. Make your way to the Tiffany's, I love every bit of the film.
127 Hours (2010)
It was so explicit, but that was the greatest asset of the film
"Based on extraordinary true story", says the trailer. The film was true to it's words. I always wonder how difficult it might have been writing about a person trapped in a confined space, and as someone copes with it, I respect them for completing such an uneasy task. Certainly, the acting job by James Franco is amazing. The role he was charged with is not an easy one. It is definitely the film to see. The main winning factor is the idea it renders: the will to live and survive any hopeless situation; that fate can be beaten, if the will-power tries hard. Even so, almost one hour watching of the struggles of a person who tries to get released may be not for everyone. '127 Hours' is a great film with a great lead. The greatest treasure of the film is the message it conveys, which makes it a definite must see.
10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
It really is one of the best teen romance films
I don't know why, but just the mention of this movie always makes me laugh. I think it is one of the best teen comedies. The movie is full of fun. It is an entertaining watch that I watched many times because it is endlessly amusing. This flick is definitely a bad-mood-killer. There is also hardly something odd and unnecessary in it. There is not a scene that you feel you could cut out. As for performances, they are not outstanding but very funny. Heath Ledger is just so charming in this movie that introduced him to Hollywood. '10 Things I Hate About You' is a feel-good romantic comedy that is smart enough, has a fantastic cast and some memorable moments. I just don't know what else I can say about it. It's just fun.
