The Hangover (2009)
Only reason I am adding my two cents in is because I want to negate one negative rating on this site. I haven't laughed this much since Blazing Saddles, and people that is a long time ago! I thought The Hangover was brilliant.
My 12 year old son begged me to take him.(that much I fear I should have did a little investigation, a couple of scenes warrant NC-17) I figured okay another Pineapple Express, for my son what's 90 minutes of boredom, no biggie. I went in blindly. Then WAM, this was F-U-N-N-Y, funny stuff, if you didn't laugh, that's sad, maybe time to lighten up. For me these were original and fresh gags! And I'm no fan of R-Rated sexist slap stick usually filled with mindless moronic nonsense, but this movie is the bomb! It is definitely a man's movie though.
The writers are fantastic comedians with the utmost timing, the acting is superb. Who are these dudes?! The only 'actor' I recognized was Heather Graham and she was awesome too. 2 thumbs up, I'm buying the DVD for sure. No exaggeration, for me, this was the comedy of the decade.
Forrest Gump (1994)
An American Classic
Hanks and Senise are brilliant along with the rest of the cast. From start to finish, most everyone will love this flick. I can't find fault with this movie, and I am shocked by some of the negative comments on this forum because it is a truly great film. I've watched this movie at least 10 times and I just love it. This movie is filled with all the emotions done with precision. Just sit back and enjoy it. In some ways it is so light on the outside and so profound in other ways. Gump is a wonderful movie for all ages and is so very deep. You will die laughing and also cry your eyes out. All you need is a pulse and you will love this movie for ever. 10 out of 10! One of the most memorable movies of all time.
Lakposhtha parvaz mikonand (2004)
5 Star Movie
One of the best movies I've seen in years. The acting is truly extraordinary. I watched the movie with my nine year old boy and he just assumed it was a documentary, that's how well acted it is. Just captivates you with these wonderful kid characters. The characters in the movie are children and this is no walk in the park and that's the only spoiler I have to say in that it is the saddest movie I have seen since "Life is Beautiful". If you can't deal with sad movies, don't go near this one. This is a tear jerker that frighteningly gnaws at the truth. This is a movie that makes you Think. I read the other posts and they are right on the money. I wish I hadn't watched it with my son though. It's rated PG and the cover at Blockbuster had the rave reviews from critics and all the kids on it too but it's a too deep for kids. Don't miss this one, go rent it. Sorry, but I see no flaws,10 out of 10.
This show is HOT!!!
Just watched the third episode of ROME and I love it!! I was surprised to read some of the negative reviews on this forum.
Political intrigue, great acting, sex, violence (the hand to hand type not the I'll shoot ya from a mile away kind), booze, gambling, prostitution, HOT HOT women, macho guys, murder, what's there not to like?!
Not to go into all the details, but getting to know the characters is crucial. And after three episodes, We know the players. The actors are real good, thanks to the producers to go and get real actors not some pretty boy talentless losers. I read that the actors were mostly Brits and that is key. Most American Actors wouldn't be able to pull off the roles. Some of the acting is flawed but hey, it's a TV show and a darn good one. Being a history buff and after watching Collin Farrell and Angelina Jolie embarrass themselves in Alexander and Brad Pitt in Troy, Rome is quite a refreshing period piece.
Liking a TV show has a lot to do with connecting with the characters. And there are a lot of them, about 12 main characters.1st of all Polly Walker as Atia is incredible!! This show was made for her. She's so hot and devious, and cunning, and okay hot, and such a strong personality, absolutely radiant woman, Wow.Then there's Ray Stevenson as Titus, he's like a Bullet Tooth Tony from Snatch. Macho, whoring, gambler type, a mans' man tough guy. Kevin McKidd is real good as a complex quiet type. Really good cast of fine actors. Indira Varma (plays Niobe)- SIZZLING HOT and she can act a little too. Not to mention Ciaran Hinds, he plays Caesar, absolutely believable, thank goodness. Kenneth Cranham (Pompey)-Fine, the actor that plays Cato (Karl Johnson)is also good.
The set is legit. I feel like we're in Rome and not some Hollywood Movie set. I'm not sure if they're are using 3D MAx (or some other computer engineered set) but it works.
Then there's the story line. A lot of evil doings going on and political maneuvering, love affairs of course, surely Rome was like that 2000 years ago! Obviously they have their history consultants, they are using the names of real people of Rome who lived 50 BC or there abouts and of course most is fictionalized to entertain us, so the plots are thick.
Anyway, thumbs up from me, THIS IS A DON'T MISS SHOW.
2 movie giants in their prime!
This movie is a classic. It is so wonderful, my praises can't do it justice. The acting is second to none. The dialogue is incredible. The story magnificent. It's truly a masterpiece. I have seen this movie at the very least 25 times. It is one of those movies you can watch again and again. This movie has so many memorable scenes. Only Casablanca can be compared in that way. And it stands up over time, some great old flicks get outdated, this one has not. It's a rare movie. You can read the other posts about the storyline. If this movie was released today, it would win every academy award. DO NOT MISS THIS MOVIE. You will never see 2 actors this great starring together ever again. One of the all time best films.
La vita è bella (1997)
The word genius is terribly overused in our society, probably because there are so few. Benigni is a genius! This movie is about LOVE, Selflessness, and hope! If you are going to watch one movie in your whole life, this is it! If you love movies like I do, this is why!
I saw this movie when it first opened, my Mother called me and begged me to see this movie immediately. I knew not what is was about. Like a good son, I obeyed my mom.
It starts off Benigni wooing his wife to be, Nicoletta Braschi, with all the slapstick of a Chaplin flick. They get married and have the CUTEST little boy, played by Giorgio Cantarini. (Oh That Face!!!)
Life is beautiful until those Nazi's come. The movie does a 180 degree turn and your mesmerized for the next 75 minutes. You will roar with laughter and cry like a baby.
I never thought I would truly have one favorite movie of all time. Before this movie, I'd say Beckett (with O'Toole and Burton), GodFather, Amadeus, etc. Then this flick comes along.
I still can't believe Benigni wrote, directed, and starred in this movie. Unbelievable achievement. He's my hero!
And speaking of hero's, all the movies, all the Arnold Schwarzenegger's , Bruce Willis', Stalones, etc etc etc and this little ugly skinny Italian is one of the greatest heroine's in Cinema history!
