Crop And Save
Visually stunning, beautifully choreographed, and filled with enchanting music.
I'm a middle aged American woman who enjoys Broadway musicals like The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, The King and I, and Fiddler on the Roof. The most recent Indian move that I watched before this one was Slumdog Millionaire. That was an intense movie with very difficult subject matter, and yet very beautifully filmed.
Here is my mini-review for Saawariya.
Visually stunning, filled with enchanting music, and with a heart-wrenching love triangle for a plot. The beautifully choreographed musical scenes are as wonderful as any Broadway musical number, and would be highly adaptable to a stage production. It's graphically gorgeous! The cinematography should have won major awards. Though parts of the dialogue and scenes may seem a bit trite, the overall message and feeling of this movie is very joyful and uplifting - no matter what happens in life and in love, keep fighting against depression and be happy! I would definitely recommend forgetting the negative reviews and give this film a chance by watching it yourself... and if possible on a large, flat screen, HD television! :)
Synecdoche, New York (2008)
Horrible, long, and fairly depressing
The best thing I can say is that Philip Seymour Hoffman did a great job at acting in this hopeless and depressing mess. More than once I wished it was over, but I kept hoping it would get better. It was very convoluted and confusing. Is he dreaming? Is it really happening? How can that be true? Lots of jumping around on the time-line. Depressing and strange mixtures of subject matter - illness, breakups, fire, sex, death. The only part that made me feel comforted was seeing Dianne Wiest, an actress that I recognized from other, happier movies. The speech by the priest near the end was fairly moving (though morose), however, ultimately I felt this was an utter waste of 2 1/2 hours of my life. I wish I had a toothbrush that could scrub it out of my mind.
The Devil's Tomb (2009)
"It truly sucked"
I was so impressed after reading the previous reviews that I decided my time would be better spent by giving the dogs their flea baths.
My boyfriend watched the movie - his comments were, "it truly sucked." I asked if the reviewers were right, and he said that he thought they made the movie sound even better than it actually was!
"This is 90 minutes of my life I won't get back - it was a total waste. I would not recommend anyone would watch it - especially not if they were suicidal, because this movie makes you want to pull the pin and see what's on the other side! It was not good, not good at all. I think Cuba Gooding needs to learn how to say, 'Would you like fries with that?' after acting in a movie like that."
