This movie suprised me. Not just the way it ended, which was a hell of a suprise. But, the acting was very nice. Justin Timberlake played his part well, and Ben Foster did an excellent job as a strung out hot-head. The movie takes place in an upscale neighborhood in California. Kids have fun drinking, drugging, and selling, but end up getting themselves into more than they can handle when they kidnap the hot-heads brother. A great plot and true story with good actors, ends up as a movie you need to watch.
One thing that seemed alittle strange. Everybody had tattoos all over them, not that I dislike tattoos. I just thought it was strange.
This is one of the few good animated movies that i have seen in a long time. its the kind of movie that children will enjoy and also parents. its got catchy music top notch animation and a good story it is also filled with humurous and serious parts but not to serious to take away from the movie.
Even though this pains me to say it, this is an amazing piece of filmaking, with strong performances and well written, listen mel gibson is undeniably the most annoying celebrity of 2006, i could use stonger language, but better not, the acting is good and it has some of the best fighting scenes ever, real fighting, not cgi graphics. I was reluctant to sit through this, it is long, and i thought no subtitles, but the story is so good, and you really feel for the lead actor, Rudy Youngblood, i will say it mel gibson is a great film maker
This in my opinion is one of the best movies you could go see right now, it has everything you could want in an action movie. It has the best fight scenes out of any bond movie iv'e seen and the cars couldn't be better, the women are bond quality also. The only thing i can say is for people hoping for more of the same your going to be dissapointed because they take bond in an entirely new direction and it couldn't have been a better decision
I did not like alot of things about this movie. The reason for this is that i have read the book and having read the book i had some expectations about this movie that were not met. The first is that the book being around 600 pages has alot in it and they decided that they didnt need any of it, its almost like watching a cheap ripoff of something that youve alreeady seen. Second is that what ever they didn't cut out of the movie they changed. My final problem with this movie is that it seems like it was done just so the people with low atttentions spans could understand it. I dont recommend this movie because it just seems like alot of random screens put togeter.
It is really hard not to think of Lord of the Rings movies when watching this movie. How can you make a movie like this kowing people are going to compare them, and not take the time or spend the money to at least come in the same ballpark as LotR. This movie probably seemed great on paper in script form, but the execution was not that great. The dragon special effects were good (not great) but thats about it. They must have spent all the money on the dragon because the rest of the movie looks pretty cheesy. The actors do what they can, but with a bad script and bad dialogue, it just comes out bad. My kids liked it, and maybe thats what the makers were going for, but the adults will be pretty bored. I actually fell asleep for about ten minutes.
This is a movie I really wanted to like. When I saw the previews, I was really excited. It had Ben Stiller, it had first rate special effects, and it just looked really funny.
But I am sorry to say that I was disappointed. The movie for me never really had much heart. The plot was as lame as can be. It was just one special effect after another (which were excellent), but that is not enough for me in a family movie like this. Ben Stiller was funny, and it made me laugh a few times, and the kids will like it, but for me it was just kind of boring.
One of the best movies all year. Also one of the best performances by Will Smith, worthy of an Oscar.
The Pursuit of Happyness is based on the life of Christopher Gardner. It shows how he struggled in his early life, hitting rock bottom with no place to stay, no money for food, and a little boy to take care of. Almost as a last ditch effort he applies for a internship for 6 months with no pay, just for a 1 in 20 chance to land the job that could save him and his family.
