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.
Release Date: March 21, 1997 (USA)
Running Time: 86 minutes.
This is my very first movie review ever on my favorite comedy ever. So please, cut me some slack here.
The movie is about Fletcher Reede is a particularly career-focused lawyer and divorced father. He has a habit of giving precedence to his job and breaking promises to be with his young son Max, and then lying to Max and his ex-wife Audrey about the real reason he missed the date. Fletcher lets Max down once too often, missing his birthday party, and has to deal with the consequences when Max makes a wish while blowing out the candles on the cake and it comes true. The wish is that Fletcher cannot tell a lie for 24 hours. This movie is halarious. It stars Jim Carey as Fletcher Reede, Maura Tierne as Audrey Reede, and Justin Cooper as Max Reede. Anyway, from beggining to end it's halarious really. He can't tell a lie so in certain situations where it's seemingly you just have to tell a lire(pulled over by a cop for instance) he has to tell the truth. I'm telling you, you wouldn't BELIEVE the stuff he says. Really Jim Carey makes the entire movie. I thought the movie was at JUST the right time, and I loved the ending also. There isn't much else you can add to this movie only saying it's the funniest movie ever. Well that's all I have to say really. I would reccomend this to an audience of 13 and up, and people who love SLAPSTICK comedy rather then dry humor. Here are some interesting facts about the movie.
-The film was the last screen role of Jason Bernard and the first screen role for Cheri Oteri.
-Tom Shadyac and Jim Carrey decided to pay homage to Carrey's days on In Living Color by having him appear as his "Fire Marshal Bill" character in the background of a scene. Look for the character in one of the film's closing scenes, donning sunglasses and firefighter gear, when Maura Tierney's character attempts to tell an airport official that Fletcher is/was her husband.
The song "Five Candles (You Were There)", by Jars of Clay, was originally written for the soundtrack but it was cut from the credits in favor of a blooper reel.
-Jim Carrey turned down the role of Dr. Evil in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery to be in this movie.
-In the last scene, one can see that Jim Carrey's watch says 12:45 (instead of 8:45, as he said in the movie)
-When Jerry, Audrey, and Max are at the airport, after the intercom said "Flight 1511 to Boston is now boarding" and they head to the gate; one can faintly hear on the
intercom "Jim Carrey, please report to airport security".
-Max asks his father if sitting too close to the television will damage his eyes, which earns him a "not in a million years" reply from Carrey's character. In The Cable Guy, Carrey's character sat very close to the television set throughout his childhood and adult life. Max also asks if he made a face would his face get stuck like that. Fletcher responds, "No, in fact some people make a great living that way." Carrey was referencing himself.
-When Fletcher hastily lists his recent traffic offenses to a police officer, he does so in the same breathless, fast-talking manner exemplified by Carrey
This movie can only be described as electrifying, if a little long. If like me you love colorful, dazzling musicals, think Chicago, with amazing dance and musical scores, this film pulls you in right away. The acting is excellent, especially Jennifer Hudson who steals scenes with her big voice and her role. I had never seen dreamgirls or chicago on stage, but i feel that the movie version captures a lot more. The movie tended to drag on a little in the last 1/3 of the movie. But for the musical numbers this is a must, if you like your musicals over the top, and looking great.
If you're thinking this is just another ROCKY movie....you're wrong. Rocky Balboa is a really great follow up and finish to the ROCKY series. It's nothing like the previous films, except for maybe the original ROCKY.
The movie catches up with where Rocky is today...which finds him living in Philadelphia and owning a small Italian restaurant. Rocky seems to be living in the past as he has to deal with the recent loss of his wife Adrian and the almost non-existent relationship he has with his son. Rocky has the opportunity to get into the ring one more time with the reigning world champ and this helps Rocky deal with his past and current relationships.
Some of the great ROCKY characters have returned, such as Paulie (Rocky's brother-in-law) and a few others. We also get to see some quick flashbacks to previous Rocky films. Fortunately, no mention of ROCKY V appears!
The visual style is also quite different from previous ROCKY films. Stallone has done a great job going back to the character's roots and brings a worthy close to the ROCKY franchise. I won't spoil the ending for you, but it's probably not as you might guess.
I would recommend seeing this film if you're a ROCKY fan.
