Well, the first time I saw this movie's trailer I never expected it to
be what it turned up. In fact, I even thought they were announcing the
program itself on the first posters I've saw about the movie.
Despites this, the movie caught my attention when I learned that it was nominated for the Oscars. Well, since Oscars aren't won by TV programs, I understood that this wasn't the case.
Right after the movie session started, and the first musics started to play. I felt in love for the soundtrack. The last time I felt this attracted by a movie's soundtrack was in "Juno"s movie.
Then, I really got involved with all history and, the movie's capacity of showing both sides of India. The most touristic, the most regular ones (the croudness of the streets and public transportation) and, above all, the underground world. Like, I still doubt it but, is it really true they cripple kids so that they look more believable when they go ask for money?? It shocked me.
In overall, I loved the movie. Even the capability of the writers to keep the movie interesting from the beginning to the end. Like you can't get off it until it's finished.
Amazing movie I tell you. I already have a space in my DVD shell for when it comes out.
It was a very interesting movie. I really like a lot this kind of
movie. "Big Fish" for instance, is one of my favorite movies and the
story is told pretty much the same way this one is. What got me
disappointed with how "slow" the movie develops. The whole aging
process went too slow. Making this movie pretty heavy and tough to
The example of "Big Fish" is a very good one because it tells a great story, during the main character's aging, yet without betting boring by any way.
This detail is the only reason why I gave this movie a 6 star and not a 8.
I think that many people expected too much from this movie. Before I
went to see it, many people told me about how poor it was and how
disappointing they got after seeing it.
Well, to start, I think that people simply expected too much from this movie. We cannot expect to produce in Portugal, (a country where the cinema is mostly made to please directors artistic taste instead of the general public) a movie with the quality of the ones produced in countries like Spain, England or France.
1st, because we simply don't have the budget and 2nd, because of the reason I said above. This really was one of the very few movies I saw that was made for the public instead of the directors! It seams that the Portuguese cinema needed to have one movie with only less than 500 viewers to understand that, if we want the cinema to grow in Portugal, they have to make movies for the public and not for the directors. We simply don't have market for only the called "movies of author".
In this perspective, I think that this movie was a very good one and it's a very first step in order do start making more movies for the people! That's what I'm looking forward to see.
About the quality of the movie itself. I don't think it was bad. In fact, I founded it rather good. Of course it wasn't brilliant, but still, it was "just good". But, for now, I guess I can be happy watching a "just good" Portuguese movie in the cinemas instead of not watching any Portuguese movie at all! For that, I'm very happy with this movie!
"The Fast And The Furious" series opened the cinema for a whole new way
to make car movies. This 3rd movie from this series added the cherry on
the top of a sweet cake. Lots of action during the whole movie and, I
must say, a very good argument. Way better than the 2nd movie with some
characters very well created and also their evolution through out the
Although, sometimes, it seams that the story walks a bit too fast and things happen too early, this 3rd movie has one of the best arguments of the 3. And I'm still undecided if it is better or not than the 1st movie.
Some really good change in this 3rd movie was the feature of drifts instead of pure racing (shown so far in the previous series). THAT is the main innovation in this series as long as in cars movies. The creators of "The Fast and The Furious" were PROBABLY pioneers in making underground car movies and they were surely the first doing a movie about drifting.
I must say that Tokyo was indeed a very good place to film this kind of driving.
Just to finish, I just wanna say there's a great surprise at the end of the movie!!! ;)

I had great expectations to see this movie. I knew it was the last one
of the trilogy and I was really anxious to see how Phoenix would be
represented. If it would be as I've seen it in comics.
But, at the end, the lack of flames in the Phoenix was the least of my disappointments. I got really disappointed with the end given to main characters.
Anyway, I just remembered myself that I cannot give away every detail of the movie. Anyway, I just have to say that I loved the main argument except (as I said) the end given to some of the main characters.
I can't really talk about the cast's performance because I don't believe I have the cinematic knowledge to do so. Still, I can keep complaining about some argument flaws. Such as, some lack of profundity in some characters and lack of explaining how some other characters ended in the movie. I'm talking about the character named "Juggernaut" and the little kid dressed in white (played by Cameron Bright) who didn't have explained what happened to them. And about the Angel (played by Ben Foster) who didn't have the profundity it should and seamed like it passed aside the movie, aside the story. That character was out of the story instead of playing a more important role.
This movie has a very good morale! When I went to the movies to watch
that movie, I thought I'd go see some kind of "weekend comedies" where
the funniness of the movies is based on stupidity (for instance, a
jealous super-woman throwing sharks at his ex-boyfriend). Anyway, it
wasn't nothing of what I expected. It had some really fun moments,
that's true, but some of the people that saw it with me, also got to
cry. This is something very rare in comedies. Having drama as well as
comedy and that well balanced.
This a perfect example of a well thought argument and well done project.
Commedies like this one are rare this days...
I found this a good movie. I think it has some good morale. Shows that
not everything that u do tells the other's who you are.
It also shows the greediness that exists out there. And it contrasts with the innocence proper from youths.
Basically, it's a all family movie in which everyone would have profit watching it and would learn from it.
The characterization was pretty good as well.
With lots of fun and some bit of sexuality, "The Girl Next Door" Is a movie from which everyone should learn from and try to start seeing people from what they are and not from what they do for living.
