Nobody has managed to topple Einstein's theory of relativity, even though it leads to the shocking conclusion that most of the universe must be made of a mysterious form of invisible matter that nobody has observed. Now physics stands at a crossroads. Some of the sharpest brains in physics have dedicated their lives to search for this "dark matter" while others are working on a new theory of gravity. Chasing Einstein follows leading scientists around the world, and to the edge of the universe.

I caught this movie on Showtime and it was well worth the 90 minutes. It was interesting and well made. The film shows how the real problems faced by the city of Los Angeles and how people were living in the city. The people featured in the film did not have all the answers but they tried to live in the world they had created. A lot of people are still living in the dreams they created in the 1950s and 1960s. As a kid I remember how I could dream and how difficult life was to me. I never understood the point of the film. I guess the point is to show the problems that people experienced and how hard it was to find a way out of the problems. Maybe it was because the film was made in the 1970s and the people are now more educated and they see the problems in a different way. If you are looking for a documentary that is entertaining, well made and has a positive message I suggest you watch this film.

Greetings again from the darkness. The first thing that strikes me about "GALAXY" is its dark, off-beat cinematography. It's very difficult to create an environment where nothing looks like it's been polished or redone, where there's no dull corner of the screen where you could place a finger. As this was shot with a digital camera, I was able to appreciate the world it created, and the new medium of film. "Galaxy" doesn't waste any time in showing us the stars, their worlds and their spaceships, and I loved that. I loved the exploration of the universe that the story was telling. It was an intense and thought-provoking journey into a parallel universe. "Galaxy" was a film that just felt right, something I was curious to see more of. I was so relieved when I heard that it had won the Oscar for Best Cinematography. I was a little skeptical about the Academy's initial vote, but this was a movie that I thought deserved to be given a nod. What makes this story interesting is that it was an intelligent story about science and the universe. It was told in a way that had you on the edge of your seat, hoping that the story would be better than what it actually was. That's what this movie does. "Galaxy" isn't meant to be a story about the universe or space exploration, it's about a story about two people, going to the stars, and the challenges they face, and about the character they develop through the story. That's what it is about, and that's what makes it a winner. This isn't a film about a space odyssey, it's a film about two people, traveling to a place that's both beautiful and terrifying, that's both beautiful and scary. The special effects in this film were stunning, and I'm glad I saw them. I'd probably still have the same opinion of the special effects, but I would have to say that they were really good. I would have liked to have seen more of the spaceships, but as a special effects director, I really appreciated the way they were done. I think that the technology they used was really accurate. The film is a love story between two people, and it's an important one. Both Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock were terrific, and the story was very well-written. I thought the performances were all fantastic, and I felt like the film was really well-made, although I would have liked to see more of the alien cultures. This isn't a perfect film, but I loved it. I'm really excited to see what they do next. "Galaxy" won the Oscar for Best Cinematography, and I'm excited to see what they do next.

I was pleasantly surprised by this film. It's a very "real" story that is usually ignored by the Hollywood establishment. I was not familiar with this topic or the science involved but found it very entertaining. I was especially impressed with the visual images and animations used to illustrate the many scientific concepts presented. They are not just used to get a quick laugh but also help to reinforce the scientific facts and concepts. I also was impressed with the presence of the president himself and other dignitaries at the museum. They were all very helpful and helpful in sharing their views of the "new physics" that Einstein used to unravel the "spacetime paradox". The president was also a very good ambassador for science. The scientific research community as well as the general public were also helpful in the film. Overall, a very entertaining documentary.

For the most part, the film doesn't reveal too much about the history of Einstein's work, though it does touch upon Einstein's interest in the Bible, which is a strange and fascinating subject to me, but that's a personal interest I have, not a professional one. As a piece of history, the film works very well. It gives the audience a sense of the actual journey of Einstein's life and how he became what he was. It does give a good insight into his work, as well as the influence he had on his own work. The film also has a great connection to the early years of Einstein, as the film shows how the famous physicist and his wife Emmeline picked up and dropped off from one family to another as they made their way through the different parts of the world. I also liked the film for the historical stuff and how it seemed to bring up things that were of interest to me as a scientist, things that I didn't think were worth talking about when I was a student, but now I think about it. It's not a film that I will remember or even remember very well, but it is a very enjoyable film, and very well done. Check it out, you may like it. A 7 out of 10 from me.

I was very impressed with this documentary and my fellow docs-makers, Michael and Catherine Pines, have made a great effort in making this film. I liked the way it went from subtle, non-cliche images to the full-blown craziness of the case. It had a real feel of what it was like to watch the case unfold over a year. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I had absorbed by the end of the film. It was very easy to understand the very difficult subject matter, and how much it affected the people involved. I was very impressed at how people have done this, and I am sure that it is not a lone effort, but is a result of a coordinated effort. The fact that the film ended with a request for people to come forward and share their story was very interesting. It is a very long time since a documentary about this case has come out. It was a very good story, and one that is definitely worth sharing. The first half of the documentary is definitely the best. I would recommend it to anyone.

This film is great. I thought it was a little long but it is great to see these men and women who go to the same school. This film is very important to people and I think it should be shown more often. It is not always easy to get through to these people. The school has a very strong bond with the children and their families. The film is filled with pictures and news about this school and it is very inspiring. The film was done by the same people who did the music for the film, "The Polar Express". They did a very good job of making this film look and feel like a documentary. There is a lot of symbolism in this film. I think that this film shows that the things we want to do can be done and can have an impact. It shows that we should not judge others but that we should all help each other. This film is not for the faint of heart.

If the 1960's was a magical time for any period piece or film, then this film from the creators of "Deliverance" is destined to become a favorite of mine. These two seem to get along so well in their interviews that I have found myself interested in their work in general, not just this particular film. I found it interesting that this particular film went viral and is now on YouTube, and many of the comments seem to be critical of this film. To me, this is actually a bit of a compliment. I thought the film was well done. While it is definitely more of a documentary, it still has a very interesting look at how a small town can see the future in a small town. It was very well made. I would recommend it to anyone interested in how a small town can see the future, how small-town people can influence the future, and how the human spirit can affect the future. This film is worth seeing and if you don't like documentaries or films about small-town people, then this is not the film for you.

You've got to love Albert Einstein. He was both brilliant and complicated. There are many stories told about him, mostly by his enemies. This documentary, directed by Woody Allen and featuring interviews with his descendants and others is a fascinating one. He knew that he was the most intelligent person in the world, and his theories, discoveries, and concepts were timeless. He was a brilliant mind, and it is no wonder that so many people (both good and bad) try to debunk or destroy his legacy. This documentary has lots of funny bits, but it also contains some great material about Einstein. I highly recommend it, especially for those who are curious about the man. Grade: A-

My comments on the movie are based on the only "short" (35 minutes) being this movie. The rest of the movie is really good and I was surprised by the dramatic ending (although I will not reveal that part). This is a great documentary about the life of Albert Einstein, the man and his life in general. In my opinion, this movie should have been longer than the 35 minutes. I have to admit that it was great. I am sure that many people like the movie, but I would recommend that you watch this movie if you want to know more about Einstein. The reason that I have to suggest that you watch the movie is because of the amazing documentary scenes and the other information provided by the documentary team. I know that some people would not like this documentary because of the large amount of information that is shown in the documentary, but the other things that are shown in the documentary are very important. For example, the events that were seen during the "birth of a child" are shown in detail and are very important for understanding the meaning of Einstein's life. The fact that Einstein's papers were finally published in 1905 is shown as a very important moment in the history of the world, the fact that Einstein was called the "father of modern physics" is shown and explained. So, for me, I think that the movie was very good. Although I must admit that I would have enjoyed a longer version of the movie.

This is a film that deserves more exposure than it gets. It's a beautiful, well-written film, with an engaging and affecting narrative that makes you care about the characters, their stories, and the film itself. There are several scenes that leave you stunned, in awe, and on the edge of your seat. I can't really put my finger on it, but this film left me feeling emotionally drained. But I would encourage anyone to see this film, and I would recommend it highly to anyone, regardless of political leanings. The film does a good job of explaining how the vaccine program was created, and the many hazards it posed. It does a good job of illustrating the lack of trust and security that the public had in government. The film is also very well-edited, and is not really a "docu-drama" in the traditional sense. It is a "documentary", and is narrated in a similar fashion to the way that Chris Paine narrated his "Hill Street Blues", although with a bit of humor. You get the impression that the filmmakers would have preferred to have done a documentary, but instead made an hour-long film, and made it one that you would want to see again. Overall, I think that this film should be seen by everyone, because it is an excellent story that deserves to be told.

The problem with trying to put a twist on a classic story is that we can't. In this case, it was too easy to make the Einstein story feel like it was part of the backdrop of the American Dream. In fact, this was more the fault of the director, rather than the writers. It was an attempt to add depth and to add an element of mystery to the story that was never really there. For example, why didn't he meet the girl he had met in the hotel? This was a major aspect of the story, and it was glossed over. There was also a missed opportunity to show how Einstein would have dealt with this situation. Instead of throwing it out on the table, he would have tried to find a way to understand and deal with it. And in the end, there was no way he could have dealt with it and come out of it better than he did. The most important thing was that Einstein was as strong as he was. The only reason he was the way he was, was because of the great life he had, which he could have changed. The fact that he had never been the kind of person to think he could change his circumstances was simply a mistake.

The popularity of movies like "Spaceballs" and "A Bug's Life" makes it easy for a film like this to go unnoticed. But this one's for the serious, science-fiction fans. I first saw this movie when I was 10 years old and I was hooked from the start. I have watched this movie at least twice a year since then, and I still love it. The movie is about a man who goes to see a science fair with his cousin and finds a beautiful new world where the animals live. When the cousin dies, the man goes off to search for the next person to die, and his goal is to get to the edge of the world, the edge of the human mind. He does so by starting a rocket and then flying to the edge of the world. It's not science fiction per se, but it's a good movie with a great message and a very entertaining story. The music by John Williams is also very good, and it really sets the mood for the film. This movie is very clever and the characters are very well developed. The acting is good, and the script is great. The film is not for the faint of heart or children, and it has a lot of violence and some adult themes. The story is very simple, but very clever. The best thing about this movie is that it is so entertaining. I love this movie, and I can't think of any movie that I would rather watch. I've watched it over a hundred times, and I still love it every time. I highly recommend this movie to everyone, especially to science fiction fans.

There are few films in which I feel I would like to watch again. It is also a rare thing in life to have seen a film which I feel so strongly about. "Crazy", "The Invention of Lying" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" were all that I wanted to watch again, and they were all that I needed to see again. This is no exception. It is a great film that touches on subjects which are usually so hard to get into. I thought it was about a young woman, Dr. Theresa Singer, who is interested in trying to make a new technology. She's a brilliant engineer, but not really a woman's person. She works in an office where women are only allowed to use the telephone to call their boss, and her work has an unspoken code that men cannot see. She meets a young man, Tom Wilkinson, who is interested in making the same technology. He is brilliant, but not a man's person. They meet again, and she feels she is in love with him. It is at this point that I realised what an odd film this was. The film moves from one thing to another, sometimes it is a short story about how he meets her, but sometimes it is a longer, more involved film about his life and feelings, and I was completely confused. The more I think about it, the more it seems like the film is trying to say something about man's love for woman, but is actually saying something about how a woman might love a man who does not always want to be her mate. This is one of the things I liked about the film, and I think the film is a great example of what I would like to see. It is a love story, and it is about love, but it is also about a man's feelings about women. In other words, it is a love story that is really about love. I don't think I have ever seen a film which is so important about love. It is one of those films that I could watch over and over again and not get bored of it. In a sense, I think the film has been used to say something important about the human condition. It is important to watch it because it is about love, but it is also important to watch it because it is about man's feelings about women. This is a film that I can watch over and over again, and it is a film which I will never forget.

I would give this film a rating of 8, but it just didn't have that "wow" factor. This was a good documentary, but I feel it could have been so much more. The film didn't provide any new information about the history of the invention of the airplane, nor did it cover the development of the jet engine. The first two films were more focused on the development of the jet engine, but it wasn't that well done. I believe that was the reason why it was released, but it could have been so much more. In a nutshell, I would give this film a rating of 7.

So, yes, this is a good film. It is about some of the greatest minds of our time. Yes, the presentation is in a documentary style. Yes, there is no plot. But, I think that is because the goal is to show the personal lives of these people and not to tell a story. This is not a story, this is just a window into their lives. If you can look past this, you will not be disappointed. But, if you are looking for a story, you will not find it here. In the end, I think this film was more interesting than the story of Einstein and Einstein's life. This film is better, I think, for not telling the story of Einstein and his life, but for the personal lives of the people involved. But, if you are looking for a story, I think you will be disappointed.

The main reason for this documentary is to show how an incredible artist's legacy is being neglected. I can't imagine that anyone would like this movie, because it's a documentary about the man who created the life-changing film "A Boy and His Dog", and it's mostly about him. We get to see some clips from the film, including some great images of the dog, and also some interviews with people who knew and worked with him, including his children. It's a good introduction to the film, but it's not a very deep documentary. I don't think it's going to be a landmark in the history of cinema, but it's certainly a good look at the man.

I saw this at the Hamilton Beach Film Festival, which is held annually in Pacific Grove, CA. The Film is about a man named Robert Noyce, who became a famous physicist, but lost his wife and daughter in a tragic car accident, when his car collided with a tanker truck. The film follows Robert, who is now a struggling writer, living with his daughter Liza (Zoey Deutch) and her boyfriend who is a military reservist. While Robert writes his book about his wife and daughter's deaths, Liza has a relationship with a man named Tom Mason (played by Anthony Mackie) who works at a park called Pacific Grove. Liza is also interested in Tom's girlfriend Tiffany (played by Bridget Fonda). Liza and Tom become friends. This film is really good. There are many good stories in the film, and some of the stories are touching. It also has a pretty good idea of how to make a film about a tragic event. I also like the film because of the actors in the film. They are all great. Anthony Mackie is really good, and Bridget Fonda is also very good. The only person I could see doing a better job in this film is Zoey Deutch. She is very good in this film, but is also a little annoying at times. I think she should have been a little less annoying. Other people that are good in this film are Madeline Stowe, who plays Liza's mother, and Louis Gossett Jr. who plays Tom's friend. The film also has a pretty good message. This film has a pretty good idea of how to make a film about a tragic event. I would recommend this film to people who want to know more about this event. Overall, I liked this film a lot, and would recommend it to people who like to see this kind of film.

In terms of "behind the scenes" pictures, I would say this is pretty good. The filmmakers had a pretty good idea of what they wanted to accomplish. But they didn't have a great deal of funding. Which is a shame. I think the film makers were able to cover a lot of bases. They showed clips from the movie, which I think is important because the movie itself isn't as deep as it seems. It's a basic story about a man's life and his experience in the space program. I was impressed with the way the filmmaker portrayed the film of the NASA astronauts. The focus on them was very well done. I don't think they really did much more than "let's look at the astronauts." But the way they did it, I liked it. I think the most interesting part of the film is that it's a documentary. I thought the filmmakers did a good job of keeping the film focused on the people. The "documentary" is an interesting angle to consider. It doesn't tell the audience how they did the experiment, but how it was done. The filmmakers have a good sense of what it was like to go into space. I think they were able to show a lot of the story and explain a lot of the science behind it. I thought the director had a very good sense of what he wanted the viewer to get out of this movie. I think it was a pretty good movie. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in science and space exploration. It's definitely a film worth seeing.

This is an excellent documentary that covers the scientific work of American physicist and Nobel laureate Richard Feynman. It's an extraordinary look at the man's life and how he came to be what he was. It also provides a wonderful introduction to the man and the world of science. It's almost too good to be true. However, it is true. You can't make this stuff up. The man was a genius and had many interesting ideas, and he was one of the fathers of modern physics. In fact, he wrote and published his own textbook on "mathematics" that is considered the bible of modern mathematics. It's also interesting to know that Feynman was a staunch supporter of the 1960s civil rights movement and that his wife had a reputation as a liberal. It's also good to know that Feynman was one of the first people to propose the theory of relativity. It's a must-see for anyone who loves science. It's a great movie that should be considered a classic.

The first film directed by Mathew Mccarthy I have seen was 'In A Sentimental Mood'. After this I went to see 'Winnie the Pooh' but I was not really interested in this one. So, when I heard that this was directed by Mccarthy I had to see it. I was not disappointed! I liked it much better than 'In A Sentimental Mood' but I still loved this one. It had a more whimsical and playful tone to it. There were several funny moments and there were some memorable one-liners. I also liked the film because I saw a lot of the concept of the film. The animated concept was different but I felt that the way the story was told was a little more obvious. It is also interesting how the children were portrayed in the film. I thought it was a good film to see, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to see a story that can make you laugh, be moved, and laugh some more. I think it is a very well made film and it is really worth seeing! 7/10

I wasn't really looking forward to this movie. I had heard that it was a lot of hype and I was looking forward to it, but I had no expectations. I was pleasantly surprised, the movie was very good, but I did have a few issues. The first is that the story line was rushed. It felt like the director just wanted to finish the movie and wrap it up. I found myself thinking "this should have been done a lot sooner." There were many unnecessary scenes that just added to the feeling of rushedness. The second issue was the cinematography. The director seemed to be a bit overbearing, I don't know why, it seemed like he wanted to cram as much information as possible into every scene. There was one scene where I was like "wow, I can't wait to see this" and the next scene I was like "okay, this is cool." He also seemed to be in control of everything, it felt like he wanted to cram every single thing he could into every scene. Finally, I thought the acting was just average. I was surprised that Elijah Wood was able to carry a movie that he did, it was very good. The story line was also pretty predictable, it felt like the movie could have been told in 5 minutes flat. I would recommend watching this movie, it's definitely worth it.

This documentary was one of the first made about the race between Einstein and the Russian, and if you're not familiar with the subject, I recommend this film. The viewer is treated to great details of the race between the two men, and the history of the Soviet Union as it relates to the race is also well discussed. It's a fascinating topic to look at and some of the details are just a little bit unbelievable. The viewer has to accept that, but the movie does a great job of bringing you into the time and putting you in the seat of the viewer, and this film is not without flaws, but still an interesting one.
