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.

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.
