This movie is a masterpiece. It is definitely an underrated movie, with a solid storyline, acting, and cinematography. I think it is the best film I have ever seen. The story of a man named Richard, who becomes infatuated with a very beautiful woman named Sarah, and then goes on a journey of self-discovery. There are many people who have never seen this movie, but those who have, I think, will enjoy it very much. This is a film that should be seen by everyone.

This film has a great cast and is one of the most thought-provoking films I have seen in a while. All of the actors and actresses do a great job and the script is just superb. I think the cinematography is also very good. If you can't appreciate the acting in this film, you're a moron. This film makes you think, it makes you feel for the characters and the story is told with a great deal of subtlety. I especially liked how it managed to avoid the stereotypes of post-modern films. I didn't know what to expect, and I was very surprised at how well it was done. Highly recommended.

The first time I saw this movie, I was a teenager, I was in a rush, and I didn't know what to expect. The movie was great, but I was a little skeptical at first. I mean, I knew people who would have killed themselves after seeing it, but I didn't expect to be one of them. I found this movie to be really good, and I am glad I found it. It really is a good movie, and a great mystery. This movie really shows how messed up society can be. It is definitely a movie to watch, and not for a lot of people. But if you are into psychological thrillers, you should check this movie out.

Not a horror film, but a wonderful work of art, that takes an extremely serious subject and turns it into a unique, poignant, beautiful and heartfelt movie. From the opening shot to the end, it is completely engrossing and brilliantly shot. The story has some truly great, haunting and heart-wrenching scenes, with a story that is cleverly woven into the background, which makes it even more powerful. The acting is brilliant, especially the acting of Melissa George, who portrays her character with a raw, vulnerable, and understated energy, that is truly impressive. The music is also superb, with haunting and powerful pieces that are perfectly blended with the scenes in the movie. All the actors and actresses who were cast in this movie were completely believable, and very believable in their roles. The cinematography and directing is also fantastic, the camera work and editing are both masterful, and are really effective in making the movie flow, and flow very well. This movie is a beautiful piece of art, that is a MUST see, and will leave you very emotional and wanting to see it again, and again, and again, until it is gone.

When I first read the story and watched the trailer for "Nightcrawler," I thought that this was going to be another mindless summer flop. I was wrong. This movie, although it has its flaws, is so much better than the trailer suggested. It has a great script, fantastic acting, and a few surprises. The twist at the end is amazing. I could have never guessed that those two guys in the hospital were the same ones who had killed the woman and his father. I was so shocked at the ending, I laughed out loud. And I'm not kidding. The ending was so unexpected that it was so interesting. I wish that they would have continued on that path. I think that the twist would have been the best ending. They could have told us everything, and then they could have made the movie a horror movie. The script was so good that I never got bored and it kept me on the edge of my seat. It had a great beginning and a great ending. I give it a 9 out of 10.

First of all, I would like to say that I am not a fan of Clint Eastwood. I have seen a few of his movies and I would say that I do not like them. I have never really liked him in the past because I think he is too cold-hearted, too selfish and too arrogant. But he is one of the few people who can make movies like "Born on the Fourth of July" and "The Outlaw Josey Wales". This is one of the most intense movies I have ever seen. The performances were absolutely superb. Eastwood and Pitt are definitely the two best actors out there right now. They play the role of two brothers who are completely consumed by their anger and hatred toward each other. I do not want to say too much about this movie, but I can say that I was so stunned by the intensity of the movie that I did not want to sleep. I was on the edge of my seat for almost two hours and I was very afraid of what would happen next. This movie is not for the weak of heart. It is a must-see for Eastwood and Pitt fans. I give it a "9/10" and highly recommend it.

As a film student, I am looking forward to this film. I am not familiar with the subject matter, but the overall look of the film is very reminiscent of the work of Barry Ackroyd and Sam Peckinpah. As for the acting, there is no real standout performance. The acting, to me, was more like a way to reflect the overall mood of the film. It was as if the actors were playing the roles they were given in the film, with little thought put into them. In this film, the characters and the story line seem to be "it" for the actors. All of the characters are in some way flawed, and all of the actors (and actresses) seemed to be in a similar stage of development. Although, the acting is not the best, it was not bad at all. If you like films like Midnight Express and Charlie's Angels, this is definitely worth a look. As for the story itself, it was very realistic and compelling. The first half of the film was somewhat confusing and at times felt somewhat slow, but the second half of the film really grabbed my attention. I was able to connect with all of the characters and really care about them. Overall, I would say that this is a film that is worth seeing for people that enjoy the "style over substance" approach to films. Overall, I would give this film a 7.5 out of 10.

I must say, I was quite disappointed with the movie, because it lacked something that is really important in a thriller: the suspense. The movie is not great, but at least I would not say it's bad. It's not great, it's not bad, and it's not good. It's just an average movie. I really liked the film because of the plot, and because of the actors. I'm not sure if the movie is worth watching, but if you like thrillers, I suggest you watch it.

This is the movie to see if you have a stomach for it. It's a little bit slow, but it's really well done. I guess I will watch it again and I'm going to see it again, just to appreciate it again. It's one of the most under-rated movies, which I think is due to it being shot on a low budget. I'm not going to lie, it's not the best movie, but it's definitely a great one. It has a lot of plot twists, and the movie is not without it's flaws. I think the whole ending is sort of out there, and I think the movie is a little bit slow, but that's not to say it's boring. It has a good ending, and it is a great ending. This is the best movie I've seen in a long time, and I can't wait to see it again. Overall, it's one of the best movies I've seen. It's a great story, and it's one of the most underrated movies ever. This is a must see movie, and I think it's one of the best movies of the year. I don't think it's going to be one of the best, but it's a good movie. 8/10

SPOILERS. This movie is one of those that you have to put down and look at the next day. For example, if you see this movie and think "I thought that was bad, but it was good", you're wrong. The acting is amazing and the story is unique. The movie was a bit slow, but that is typical for this type of movie. I don't think the movie should be a 1, but the story was great and the characters were great. This movie was a bit long, but I found that to be the best part. The movie is an 8, but the story and acting is so great that I give it a 9. I would watch this movie again and recommend it to everyone.

SPOILERS: After watching "Trumbo" (2009) I was disappointed. But after watching "Man on Wire" (2011), I was totally impressed. This film is very well-made. It shows a story of the mind and the art of communication, and how it can be manipulated. This film was very well-made and has been shown in all the major European festivals. The cast is very good. The acting is very good and very convincing. I am not a big fan of Robert Downey Jr. but he was good in this film. I think it is very important for people to watch this film. It is very important for people to see the way how the media can influence the minds of people. It is very important to see how one can be manipulated in this way. I strongly recommend this film. It is a must see. I highly recommend this film.

A drama in a small Texas town, in which a teen girl, and her best friend (who happens to be a man) discover a bizarre, almost supernatural force that can only be seen by someone in their dreams. The girl's best friend is quite a few years older than her, and they both begin to believe that this force is a spirit, and the girl is the reincarnation of the girl that they dreamed. Well, this is one of those movies that you have to watch several times to really get the full effect of. The first time you watch it, you may just think "why did I see it again? I don't get it." The second time you see it, you'll see something new, and you'll realize that the movie is worth the price of the rental. I was totally enthralled, and I'll recommend this movie to everyone, because it's a very good movie. In my opinion, the only drawback is the ending. There were some parts that seemed somewhat unrealistic, and some parts that I felt were too fast-paced. It seemed like they had the story ready for the last twenty minutes, but they wanted to end it earlier. I know they didn't have the budget to do that, but I don't know how they could have done it better. I was also disappointed with the acting. I thought the actors did a good job, but I couldn't see anyone in particular standing out. I'm not really a fan of Christian Bale, and I'm not a fan of Ben Affleck either, but I think they were good. I thought Michael Shannon did a good job, and I thought that Sam Rockwell was very good, as he was in "The Devil's Advocate". All in all, I think this is one of those movies that you have to see at least a few times, because it's a very good movie, and it's very original.

I have not read the book and I don't know if it would matter but I was entertained and the director did a good job. It was too long and the movie was like it was part of a movie. The acting was great and the story was good. The only thing I didn't like was the scene where Alex (Willis) got his heart broken by the fake one. I thought it was kind of lame and unrealistic. All in all this was a good movie and a good performance from Willis. I give it a B+.

The only thing I can say about this movie is that it is a good example of how a horror movie should be. The fact that the characters are not really "evil" is what makes this movie interesting. The people who made the movie did an excellent job with the script and direction. The movie is pretty good, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes horror movies. A little warning, though. Some scenes are quite disturbing. If you are easily offended, do not watch this movie.

The movie is based on a true story of a former TV news reporter who is able to stay out of jail for a long time, through a series of events that lead to him being able to write a book that he believes will be a major book in the history of journalism. As the movie begins, the news reporter is planning on being married to his love, and now is planning on divorcing her. However, his wife, who has been dead for a year, returns from the grave to the news desk. While trying to make his own book, he meets the character played by Andy Garcia, who shows him a way to stay out of jail for a long time. I think the movie is a little bit slow in places, but for the most part, it is a great movie, that is worth seeing.

I don't want to give away any spoilers but I will say this. This is not a movie for those who like all the boring stuff. The ending is really, really sad, and when you think about it, you don't feel much sympathy for the characters, even the "bad" ones. But they did the best they could with the material they were given, and I found it very satisfying. I was almost crying during the end. If you like your movies to have a bit of a kick to it, then give this one a go.

The audience in my theater was in complete shock. Absolutely. This film completely blew me away! The story line was engaging and the way the characters are developed and the environment through the character interactions were amazingly realistic. The actor's performance was incredible. The way they develop this girl and how she goes from wanting to escape to not wanting to escape were amazing. The interaction between the two young men (and girl) were extremely realistic. They seemed to be all of the little kids that are being "taught" how to live life, to be like the adults they were being "taught" to be. The way they developed these little kids to be their own adults made this movie one of the best I have ever seen. It truly showed how a little girl can make someone that is loved and respected not just by herself, but by others and by the entire community. The director does a great job showing how the characters grow and change from the beginning of the movie to the end. The director also shows how children can change in the wrong ways when they get older. This movie will definitely become a classic and I will watch it again and again.

I remember the first time I saw this film, i was 11 years old. I really liked it at that time, because it had some scary moments, and it had something in it. I have never seen it again. I went to my local video store today, and it's like that. I never get the chance to see a movie, because they never show it on tv, or I get the real chance to see it. Anyway, I was amazed by the quality of this movie, the actors, the photography, and the very interesting storyline. I even believe that this movie is one of the best horror movies ever made. Even now, when it has been seven years, it still holds my attention, it's still very interesting and well made. I always give this movie a 9 out of 10, and I will recommend it to my friends and family.

It's hard to find a film with an ending that is as shocking and dark as "What Dreams May Come." This is one of those films that will make you think about the meaning of life and reality. As a filmmaker I think that this film is extremely well done. If you are looking for a film that will bring you to a different point of view, "What Dreams May Come" is definitely for you.

The acting was great and the story was very powerful. The movie was very realistic and very close to reality. The other reviews were way off base. My husband and I walked out of the movie and said, "Wow." I really enjoyed it. It was like a roller coaster ride. We both really enjoyed it and we laughed a lot. This movie is not about killing or saving people. It is about being who you are and doing what you feel is right. We enjoyed the whole movie. The only bad thing about this movie was the ending. It was very corny and cliche. But it did get a little tiresome. I think it was a good movie to watch with a group of friends. We all really enjoyed it. A definite 8 out of 10.

First of all, let me say that I didn't want to watch this movie because I have heard it was a big disappointment. This is why I waited for the DVD. I read some of the reviews before I went to the theater. What I heard was the movie was so terrible, I wouldn't even watch it. I finally watched it. I have to say, I was wrong. The movie was great. I would say it was a little slow at the beginning, but once the characters started to figure out what was going on, it just got better and better. The actors were great. It was really scary, especially when I saw the guy that killed one of the kids, and the young woman who was playing the mother's sister. I wouldn't say the movie is realistic, but it's a good movie, and the way it was shot made it look like a documentary. I will definitely watch it again, if I ever get the chance to see it on TV. I give this movie 8 out of 10 stars, because it is worth watching. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a good movie, and watch a good movie. I will definitely give this movie a watch.

As a former psychiatric patient, I can relate to the characters in this film. I have had a long-term psychotic break. Many of my symptoms are the same as this film's "profoundly terrifying" character. This film reminded me of my own experience. I was quite lucky to get out alive. My girlfriend at the time, who I was getting back in touch with after being away from her for a few years, had been in a similar situation and had given me some advice. The film itself was not very scary, but I think it was for me. The audience, who was made up mostly of professionals, was asking "what's going on?" and "who is it?" Very few of them were actually paying attention to the film. They were not thinking "What is this, a horror movie?" This was something we needed to see. It's one thing to have the audience thinking, "How did this happen?" But it's another to actually show them. When I saw the film, I thought it was terrifying. I'm not saying it was "dramatic", but I can see why the director, producer and cast did this film. This is a documentary, after all. It's not supposed to be scary, but it is supposed to be interesting. I would highly recommend this film to anyone who needs a little more information than what you see in the previews. 8/10

This film could have been a boring waste of time. I've seen too many movies in my time where the actors come out of the movie and the viewer has no idea why they are in it. I'm an independent film critic and I'm always puzzled when I hear people comment about a film they did not see. Usually when it comes out on DVD, they say "Wow, I didn't know that was coming out." It's all hype. You go to a movie with no idea what you are in for and it turns out to be something extraordinary. I would not be surprised to find out that this film will be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. I saw this film for free because it was advertised as "An inside look at an activist." I left the theater full of new information and new feelings. I'm not a big fan of politics and politics is a pretty dim subject, but this movie managed to make me feel like I understand this subject better than I ever have before. It has been years since I've seen a movie that had this many depth and emotion. I highly recommend seeing this movie. It will give you that extra little bit of a kick. This film is not political or a movie for the political crowd. It is an independent film that is easily appreciated by all.

I am going to be brief because this is a very well done movie. People who are getting paid to post negative comments on this movie have it backwards. This is one of the best, most realistic movies that I have seen in the past few years. It is realistic in a sense that it seems that the people involved know more than most people on Earth. The acting is good, the characters are believable, and the plot is solid. I thought the ending was really well done, and I don't see how anyone could dislike it. This is a movie that I would recommend to anyone.

In a nutshell, this is an excellent movie for people who like a realistic movie to get caught up in. I'll say that I had no expectations of this movie before I saw it. I got caught up in the movie and I didn't want it to end. I give this movie a 9/10.

I love this film and this is the first time i have ever been so inspired by a film to start watching it.It has a very intense and intense storyline and i would recommend you watching it, i also thought it was a good emotional thriller because you really feel for the character. I would definitely recommend you watching it, i would definitely recommend you watching it. This film is not for the faint hearted or the easily startled.

I haven't seen anything quite like this movie. It's got everything: realistic characters, believable situations, and terrific performances. It's just raw, real. If you're expecting the "old school" of movies, you're not going to like this movie. And if you want a movie that will make you think about it for a while after, it's going to do that to you. This movie is about humans trying to adjust to a new world that they don't really understand. It shows what happens when you believe something that is not true, and at the same time it shows what happens when you try to let go of it. And the best part is, it's not over-done. It's something you can watch over and over and you'll never get bored with it. It's also very political, and that's always good. This movie's also a metaphor for racism in America, and the people who are willing to believe things like this, and the people who aren't, are all the same. And that's something that is very hard to deal with. It's a very interesting movie, and I recommend it.

I have never seen anything that has given me such a sense of how society can be so warped and what it takes to be human to be acceptable, one might even say normal, to others. I watched this film and I really do believe that what is meant by living is the ability to leave behind the world you are in and live in the world you wish you had. Living can be painful and even traumatic. As an average American, it is easy to just focus on the things that are easier to see in other cultures. Like when you go to an art gallery, and everyone is dressed like hipsters, what are you seeing and why? Or the more subtle and mind bending subject that is sexual harassment in our workplace, what are you seeing and why? It is difficult to be able to handle the everyday challenges that people face, it seems like a kind of the constant barrage of our consumer society, but instead of it just being a group of people duking it out, there is always someone that is "different" in some way. The people that seem more "normal" in this world, are just an illusion. And as I look into society in general, I see that we don't have many choices when it comes to being able to survive and to live, in order to satisfy the needs of others, it would be harder to do so than when it is done by one's self. Is it true that the only way to be normal is to be acceptable?

It is difficult to find fault with this movie. At first, I wasn't very familiar with the novel but the plot and screenplay was great. The acting was superb. The man playing the part of the family's younger son was outstanding and if you have not read the book, do so immediately. The dialogue was outstanding. One of the things I loved the most was the way that the mother struggled with her body, and the realization that she is weak, and the realization that there is no one to give her an education because her father's job is boring and monotonous. There are so many times when the mother is disgusted by what she is watching, but the realization that it is because of her poor, and how to make her feel better about herself. The ending was a little disappointing, but not terrible. It still leaves you with a feeling of amazement and beauty of nature. I think that there is no movie that can be made, but this movie definitely deserves a big 5/10.

Being a teen with ADHD, it is true I often make poor decisions that cause problems. But there are worse things that can happen to you. So this is the challenge the film presents - we're all screwed and the only way to make it through is by creating situations that remind us of the life you want. The film explores that idea in the best way, with a lot of wonderful acting, without being overly dramatic. The actors are all fantastic, and the cinematography of the film is really well done. I was in tears during several of the scenes. This movie was actually more effective for me than the Serenity series. Overall, the film really is very well done, but I still didn't like the ending very much.

I do not understand why this film is not getting a wider distribution. There are just a lot of real life situations that may happen in your life and you should take advantage of them. The acting is very good in this film, it was truly a good story and it should be appreciated by all of us. If you like this film please don't forget to check out "Broken Flowers" it is just as good as this movie.

I believe that most people are just too lazy to look at a lot of movies and play them once and for all. I, like many other people, went into this one with low expectations. I was pretty sure it would be boring and mediocre, and probably go straight to the trash heap. I was wrong! I absolutely loved this movie, and it's one of those movies that I think the whole family will enjoy. This movie really goes beyond the story line, because the action sequences are so damn spectacular. The visuals are excellent, the acting is great, and the story is superb. I also think it goes to show that it is possible to make a movie that is just as good as any other big Hollywood film, and still be labeled as a box office bomb. I have to say that I think the last 1/2 hour is the most intense, and suspenseful part of the entire movie. The only thing I would've changed about this movie is the end. It was too "dark" and there were just too many things going on. The actors were outstanding and I think this movie is definitely a must see for anyone who likes movies that are good, but not great. For those people who think that movies like "The Truman Show" and "Altered States" are good, this is a great movie that will never be forgotten. People like this are rare, and it's a movie that I think everyone should see.

One of the very few movies that have affected me and made me think and learn about my own life. The performances are great, the story is complex and the ending was surprisingly strong, yes it was predictable but nevertheless what is? What do we get out of that? Nothing really. All we have is a film with a strong message. Highly recommend.

I have never seen a film that made me cry. I actually cried twice during this film. I am usually not very emotional during films like this, but this film made me cry at least 5 times. It is a dark, dark movie. The director is very artistic and the camera is actually filming the storm that is happening in the middle of a rain storm. I loved the way that the director cut away and showed the people's reactions to the storm and that was another thing that was so heart warming. I like that the actors are so real and that it was very intense and I especially like how the director didn't show too much in the middle of the film. I also liked how it didn't show the characters dancing and the little things that people had done during the storm. I really like how this film told the story of a mother's love and care and how she was caring for her son while the son was being taken away. The film is so real that the director used to fake storms and let the storm make the actors react and react. It was very great. I think that this movie is a great movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for a great movie to watch. It's so great and definitely worth the watch. I also recommend this movie to anyone who is new to any kind of movie, I think that this is one of the best movies ever made. 9/10

Perhaps I'm a sucker for a thriller, but "Shoot the Messenger" has to be one of the most brilliantly shot films I have seen in quite some time. It has a surreal quality about it that is pretty much lost in most films nowadays. I mean, don't get me wrong, I am not too impressed by the cold brutality of "The Beaver" (I mean, that was a classic), but it was still a very effective piece of filmmaking. However, "Shoot the Messenger" just manages to rise above all of that to produce a very emotionally potent and tense piece of film-making. Michael Fassbender plays a journalist who is investigating a new and mysterious killer. He decides to travel with a colleague (played by newcomer Simon Baker) to Turkey and interview a man who has spent some time in jail, the killer of the journalist's partner. The killer is described as having a troubled past that doesn't really show up in the film. However, the killings are very disturbing and will probably make you jump a few times. I wouldn't say the film is sensational, but it's certainly very good. It does have a few problems, but one of the problems is probably that the film focuses too much on Fassbender's character, and in my opinion, he is pretty much what it's all about. I think that Fassbender gives a performance that is extremely strong and believable, and I think he deserves an Oscar nomination. The other thing that I didn't like about the film was that it felt a little rushed. There are two sections in the film, which I thought were superfluous and didn't do much to improve the film. There is one section in the film where Fassbender goes to interview a Turkish warlord (played by Jeremy Irvine) who is very important to the story, but other than that, I thought that the film was overlong. "Shoot the Messenger" is definitely a film that is worth seeing for Fassbender alone, but it is definitely a very good film overall. Definitely worth seeing.

Some of the most memorable scenes in this film are the ones in the movie theater. Or so I thought, until I sat down to watch it. I was really looking forward to this movie because of the trailers I'd seen before the film. I had no expectations at all. I saw the movie, and it left me thinking. And I didn't leave thinking that I wanted to see it again. But I'm pretty sure I wanted to see it again. I guess you could call that a happy ending. The title might make you think that it's a 'gentle' film, but it's not. There are many scenes that you'll be tempted to keep watching because they're so intense. I would never want to see the movie a second time. I guess I'd have to do it all over again, just to see what happens. I saw it twice before I decided to rent it. So that explains why it's only got a 7.5 out of 10. If you can watch it more than once, then you might find it more enjoyable than I did. It's not what I'd call an epic film, but the performances are good, and there is some really intense stuff in it. I really don't want to spoil it, but I'll just say it all: I think it's really worth seeing if you want to think a bit about what this world is about. It will definitely leave you thinking, but don't be surprised if you do think some things.

This movie shocked me. I was waiting for this movie to end but I couldn't stop thinking about it. I felt such a need to see it again. The acting was great. The story line is a simple one. A mother with mental problems chooses to make a new life for herself with the help of a neighbor. At the same time, a gang of thugs want to get revenge for the murder of her son. This movie got me thinking about this concept of society in a changing way. We are living in a revolution that has brought about the destruction of society. We live in a society that wants to survive without the help of society. I was amazed by this concept. This is my favorite movie. I love it so much.

After reading a lot of reviews I was very interested to see what they had to say. As a frequent visitor to Amsterdam, I know that there are many different personalities of the Dutch people. While watching this film I didn't know that there were quite so many different sides. As I have a personal connection with some of the characters, I know that this movie is not only about black people or white people, but also about race and a history of oppression. I recommend this movie to anyone who has friends of all backgrounds. If you're Dutch, you know this is very much a country of immigrants and this film shows you how they deal with problems.

This is one of those films you just can't watch with a straight face. The production design and special effects are a real treat. The storyline is simple but effective. The acting is good and believable. The music is very effective in conveying the point of the film. This is one film that you won't want to miss.

After reading so many negative comments about this movie I thought I would write something positive about it. It's not perfect. It has a few gaps in the plot (the last one is noticeable - the scene in the car on the boat is terrible). But even if it is not perfect, it is still very good. I could only find one thing bad about it, and that was the ending. But that is just a small thing, and no more. The whole movie is excellent. I could watch it over and over again and never get bored. This is why I love Michael Douglas. He is really an underrated actor. In fact he was underrated before he ever went to Paris for this movie. He is simply a genius. What this movie is doing is being an exact copy of the previous movie of the same name. Except this time the remake is better. I would like to see that with the original as well. The movie is extremely well made and well acted. The only thing I don't like is the ending. It could have been better, but it is still a good one. Anyway, the movie is a masterpiece. One of my favorite movies of all time. It deserves a 10.

A rare case, a movie has received an 'R' rating in the US but has been released as an 'PG' (children under 14). However, this movie is a perfect example of how a rating is not as important as the story and acting of the film. It would be hard to believe a group of teenagers would take so much time and trouble to kill people. However, what makes the movie so disturbing is how these teens were subjected to the brutal acts of their friends. The cinematography, the acting, the amazing. The character development and development of the teenagers in the movie was outstanding. It was also interesting to see how these teenagers were put into a social and mental group because of their serial killing spree. It is the aspect of the movie that really makes you feel bad for the teenagers in the movie. It is just another twist to the story. I recommend it to anyone who is into true stories and want to know how these people live. A very good film.

I want to start off by saying that the acting in this movie was spectacular. I have no idea why it is not recognized for award of the year. This movie was an utter gem, not one single word or reaction or facial expression or thought, everything was perfect. The acting was phenomenal from everyone. This movie had a fantastic flow, there was never a moment where it dragged, it was so straight forward and unbelievable. I don't know if the director and the producers are just doing it because it's that great or if it was really that good, but it was. I was very impressed, I was in tears during the credits. Everything about this movie is excellent. The direction, the cinematography, the editing, the music, everything, everything was spot on. I don't know where to start, but if you haven't seen this movie then you definitely should!

After a first view of this movie, I can say that you should take the time to see it, or else you won't have it all figured out. If you don't have it figured out, you'll be frustrated and bored, and that's not what you're looking for. It has two stars for a shot at Oscar-season, and I think it's one of those movies that is a little too perfect for some things, but actually quite enjoyable. It's the kind of movie that you can watch every so often and be totally immersed in, and then be frustrated when it's not as good the next time. If you like this movie, I have a couple of other recommendations, among which is "Bad Moon Rising", starring Richard Gere and Diane Lane.

My experience with Tom Six does not match many of the other reviews I have read. I actually found it entertaining. Some people have given it bad reviews because they don't understand that the premise of the film is to depict a group of people not getting the answers they were seeking, but being left with a sense of hope. The violence shown in the film is not gratuitous and not particularly gory. When I was watching it, I thought that the movie did have the correct tone and pacing. As I continued to watch, I really became interested in the characters and what their struggles and values were. They are not presented as being completely unlikeable. I thought that Tom Six did a great job at showing that the characters are trying to find themselves in a world that doesn't make sense to them. The ending, while sad, did not leave me feeling depressed or defeated. That's not what the film is about. I think Tom Six does a fantastic job at creating the tone and making a movie that is easy to follow for the whole family. I was really impressed with his work in the small details of the film that really add to the overall atmosphere. When I saw this in the theater, I thought it was a beautiful and emotional film. It had the right amount of violence and humor that was appropriate for the story and the characters. In the end, I am looking forward to Tom Six's next movie and am looking forward to seeing what he does.

If you've read any of my other reviews, you'll know that I'm a huge fan of Will Smith and a longtime fan of "Under the Tuscan Sun", a book I've been wanting to read since I was a kid. Well, I finally got around to reading it, and boy, I can't wait to see what happens in this film. So, I wasn't looking forward to the movie at all, but I was very surprised. The film wasn't that good. Sure, it had its good points, but there just wasn't anything that I was interested in, and I didn't really care about anyone. But, it was the music that really worked for me, and really helped me get into the movie. Now, I have seen it five times now, and I still enjoy it every time I watch it. I'm really trying to get into the music. I love the songs, and I think that if I were to be singing them to my friends, they would be more like how I'd like them. They really make the movie, and they really get you involved in the movie, and that's really what this movie was. It was entertaining, and I think that it did a good job at what it wanted to do, which was entertain. I think the two main characters did a really good job, and I think they brought the film to life, and made it a great movie. I like how the movie went from drama to horror to comedy, and how it kept me interested. My favorite part of the film was when they were at the hotel and they were talking about how it was so dark, and how their little things were bigger than what they could really see, and I really liked that part. The people they were talking about, how they were so scared of the darkness. That was really scary. The movie definitely had a good feel about it, and I think that everyone will be able to relate to this movie, even if you don't like the book. I think that you could probably relate to it, and I would recommend it to anybody. 9/10

I'm not sure where to begin. I liked this movie so much that I watched it all the way through. It was not very graphic, and there were no hard-core sex scenes, but it was still very intense. It had a nice story, and the acting was very good. Some parts were a bit hard to understand, but it was okay. I think this movie is for the entire family. It's the kind of movie that you can watch with your kids, and they will laugh. Some parents may have an issue with the amount of sex scenes, but I thought the movie was actually very realistic. I loved the scenery, the scenes of Boston were amazing. The movie gave me chills, and I was really glad I watched it all the way through. There were some parts in the movie that you would think would be a little extreme, but I think that was part of the reason it was good. It really made me think, and it was realistic. I think the best part of the movie was when I got home from work and I had to put it all together, and I really enjoyed that part of the movie.

The film is about a documentary filmmaker playing a game of Russian Roulette with some of his colleagues and some random people whom he shoots. It's an interesting twist to a rather predictable movie. I don't know about the story, but I have a feeling that the movie is trying to reach the truth behind the documentary, but never quite succeeds. It's all about the result of the game. This is what makes it so interesting, and the movie does a good job of showing us the players' motives, but the film ends up being more of a character study than a mystery thriller. The film is about an idea that is challenged, but never gives up. The result is to leave us with a sense of admiration for the efforts put in to create a project that could make a statement.

This is one of those movies which I would gladly watch again and again, just for the fantastic writing and the really great acting from the actors. It also uses an excellent soundtrack. Not only do I recommend this movie to all people who like thrillers, but I recommend it to anyone who likes a great plot, a great soundtrack, and a great movie in general. I am very happy that I got the chance to see this movie, and I will surely be watching it again! This movie has everything, and it is worth every second of it's run time.

This film is simply amazing. It's about a lonely, bearded balding guy who has been responsible for several deaths and who has a dark secret. There are some amazing flashbacks to his childhood, when he's still a child, and to his past as a serial killer, and a bit of character development. This film is gritty and realistic, it shows how things could have been if you're born with a certain condition. It's interesting how this film has some of the best and funniest acting I've ever seen. Sean Penn's performance is amazing and very entertaining. The rest of the cast is great too, especially the two stars that play the movie's leads, though you don't see them much. There are a few small touching scenes and even a few dark ones, but overall it's a very sad film. It's very realistic and scary, but also full of hope. There are a few major themes that come up during the film, but I won't ruin them for anyone. Overall, this is a great movie and I recommend it to anyone.

Just saw the movie. The movie, I think, is more relevant than ever. The CIA is now a problem that actually exists, especially in the world of the Russian mafia. The movie was a bit of a shocker, the whole world is trying to kill him but the boy manages to pull himself together and pull the dagger. I know a lot of people are turning to drugs, but this movie definitely shows the real side of drugs. Drugs were much worse for this boy. Drugs were such a nightmare for this boy, but he's still alive and kicking, trying to work his way to the top. The movie was great and I highly recommend it.

I recently watched this movie and in my opinion it was really good!I am amazed at how a movie made by a 17 year old kid can impress me.First of all it has an excellent casting,it is good to see Jennifer Jason Leigh who I think of as a young Jennifer Lawrence in a leading role.And I am really impressed with the performances of Ben Chaplin,she seems to have taken his acting to a new level.And the only surprise is that Keira Knightly is so beautiful,I think she should try to be a leading role on the big screen.The other actors like David Arquette and Zach Galifianakis and even the director,Chris Columbus are very good too.And I really recommend this movie to everyone who wants to see a good movie with some sort of positive message and to a young person who has great potential to become a great actor.

A frightening, lonely man is taken into a mental hospital and only the voice of his girlfriend, a photographer, can rescue him from a reality that can only exist in an image. No one has ever survived such a life-threatening event and so the photographer will do anything to try to save him. The film's strong point is the performances of the two leads. None of them have a great deal of screen time and mostly they are secondary players. But they are believable and can be both intriguing and unnerving. It's the psychological aspect of the film which works best, for the viewer it's very different from the actual reality of the people who make up the hospital, so you feel like there is more to their lives than is usually presented on screen. That's what makes this film so brilliant and if you can get past the artificiality of the story and can focus more on the characters, this is one of the most gripping dramas of this decade. With a fantastic story and great performances, I can only recommend this film.

The last movie I really enjoyed was The Ship. This movie had a lot of great elements. The movie was really good, very suspenseful, the acting was really good, the scenery and the ideas were great. The movie also had an interesting and unique ending. Overall, this movie was really good and I recommend it to everyone, even if it's not your usual genre.

I would have to say that seeing this film gives an insight to my own personal experiences of abusive childhood abuse. The most chilling of these is the fact that my father went to jail for his "child molesting". While this certainly wasn't my father's fault, I know it was. There were a lot of other things that made my father a violent man who did things that no parent should do to their children. And I know that when I was a teenager, my father abused me and I was very insecure. It was the same thing with him. I am not ashamed to say that I have learned to recognize in myself a lot of the things that I did as a teenager and it is quite possible that I will go through similar trauma and abuse in my life. In this film, I learned a lot of things that I know now that will make me an extremely resilient person. I can say that it is definitely worth seeing because it is one of the best films I have seen and I feel that you will get so much out of the experience.

I've always thought of this movie as a classic because there are only a few movies I can say that. The acting in this movie is great, and the cast of characters are as strong as the writer. The cast is good, but this is what this movie is really about. The music is fantastic, and also adds to the mood of the movie. I must admit, I don't think it was my favorite movie, but it's definitely one of my favorites. I give it a 9/10. This movie has everything, and not only the good.

I loved it! I thought it was great! I was totally absorbed in it. The only thing that annoyed me was the undercutting. There were several moments where I looked at my watch and said, "Oh, this is a big time." I would have preferred the title to just be "Horror", not "Horror at Horror" (which is what the film was actually titled). Also, the death scenes were completely realistic. When is a movie not realistic? I think it's so bad it's good. The director even went so far as to include plenty of modern music at the end, when the actors returned home, including music from the Simpsons, to tell us how they left the movie. And that was as far as the director went. There are many other great things that the film did for me. One is how this story was taken right out of reality. It was so well thought out that I had to check the sub-titles to make sure that they weren't talking about the red car. I was so pleased with this! Another thing I liked was the way that the director actually wanted to show us the events as they happened. This is really why I love movies. If a movie is told by the director, it really shows the entire story. There are times in the film when you would think the film was just going to end and then the director would come back with a "happy ending". There were several times where they just kept on going. And it made the movie more realistic. Another thing I loved about this movie is that it left the viewer with an emotional reaction to the story. It made me cry, and it made me laugh, and it made me laugh again. The characters were fantastic, they all had great qualities. You can see the hearts of all of the actors and actresses in this film. It was a great experience.

I saw this movie the other night and I really enjoyed it. I am a huge fan of "Twilight" and "Frost/Nixon" so I knew the story so I was prepared for the crazy/very interesting plot twists. I loved that the main character has to live the rest of his life with the past and sometimes refuses to let it be with his own daughter. I loved that there were twists and turns in the plot. I would have liked to have seen more of the younger "Zed" in the movie. I thought the acting was very well done and the acting was believable. I thought that they did a really good job with the first third of the movie, but the last third was a bit weak for me. The ending was very good, although I wish there had been a bit more screen time of the older Zed. The ending of this movie had a twist that I thought was pretty shocking, but I was kind of surprised. Overall, I thought the movie was good and I was excited to see the movie again so I would definitely buy this movie on DVD. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes "Twilight" or "Frost/Nixon". I give this movie a 9 out of 10. I would say watch it and enjoy it.

I've never seen a movie like this before. It's the first film I saw with Kevin Spacey in the lead. I enjoyed it very much. It's a good film to watch if you are feeling down and just want to get some peace of mind. It's worth watching, especially if you've got a problem with the idea of a supernatural goings-on.

I haven't been so stunned in many a movie. This movie could be a worst nightmare if I was all alone, but I was there with my girlfriend and my son. I was blown away by the chemistry between the two leads, and by the relationship between the parents. The movie left me with a great feeling that what a great movie that this would be.

This movie was shocking, with a stellar cast, and made a strong statement to those who would make statements. I hope you will support the producers of the movie, who created this movie, and they made a statement to all those who still do. If you have not seen this movie yet, go to your local theatre and see it. You will never watch this movie the same way again.

I thought this movie was very good, great acting, great story. Nothing I didn't expect. I recommend it to anyone who likes a good mystery or thriller.

This film is a great follow up to the 1982 masterpiece The Deer Hunter. What I love about this movie is that it takes place in the 80's. It shows that even then, the attitudes toward homosexuals and drug abuse were so different that it really does leave the viewer with the feeling that a major change in society is imminent. You really get the impression that even at this time, there was still this huge rift between the two groups. With the passage of time, and even today, I think there is still a major attitude gap between the different political groups in society. This is one of the greatest films of the 80's.

Imagine the 70's after the events of 9/11 and you have this story. The movie gets a bit slow for its own good, but it doesn't seem to be going for a stretch. Like the end, this story gets it on, or maybe the other way around. A filmmaker creates a film about an American family that loses their son in the war on terror. The father is mourning and the mother is trying to cope. They have this son. Then it turns out the father is a liar and the mother is a manipulator. They go through the trial that takes over a year and the father learns to forgive the mother. The father is OK now. He is a good father, is trying to mend his relationship with his son. Now, his wife is also OK and tries to make things right with her daughter. The son is OK now. He is a bit depressed and is not sure he wants to come home. But it seems like he has learned. He is not only learning the ways of the outside world, but the ways of the home. He does not stay in school or do sports anymore. He is doing things his own way and living his own life. This is a true story, so the end is not a surprise. This is a very good film. Great performance by Julianne Moore and great director. Good ending too. 8.5/10

Everyone loves a good thriller, and so is William Friedkin, who is back with another supernatural thriller that makes us feel uneasy, very uneasy. The film tells the story of two college students in Florida, one of them a college student, the other the roommate of a teacher. When he finds out his former girlfriend has been killed and he begins investigating the murder, he soon realizes that he is being set up by a friend of his that works as a mechanic at the police department. When the cops find out that they have been swindled, they begin to investigate the whole thing and they soon discover that not only is the classmate who was set up working for the killer, but that he and his friend are more dangerous than they thought. This is a really well made film with some really creepy moments, and some really good cinematography, especially in some of the scenes that take place on a haunted house. The film is quite intriguing and probably the best horror film I have ever seen. It isn't as well-acted, or as scary as the previous film, but it is a decent film nonetheless.
