Great look at the oppression in modern day Iran and the impact on creative types. Well cast and great dance sequences as well as wonderful desert scenery.

This movie is excellent in many respects. It is family friendly but not a corny kids movie. It shows a piece of history with an interesting story. It covers some of the awkward moments of childhood and difficulties while growing up many encounter. I covers bias and prejudice and how people jump to conclusions like "Crash" and "American Beauty" did. A great movie that will stir anyone who sees it!

In the Name of the Father was an incredible biopic. Daniel Day-Lewis was amazing as usual, as an actor. He honestly should've won the award for best leading actor instead of who did win (probably Liam Neeson for Schindler's List, not saying he was bad though)

I think my expectations for this movie were too high. The concept really appealed to me. I thought I would be watching Adeline fall in love again and again through out the decades. So in some ways the movie was a disappointment. The ending certainly was. I could have done without the stupid narrator or at least I could have gone for a better narrator. I was kind of skeptical of the way Adeline related to her daughter. I didn't get the feeling that Adeline was a 107 year old mother. Instead, it felt like she was the daughter or grandaughter. Still, I enjoyed the movie. If the idea appeals to you at all, you will enjoy it.

A very interesting film. On the plus side, the acting was outstanding. Helen Mirren's portrayal of Maria Altman was, I felt, entirely believable; I kept waiting for her accent to slip but it never did. Ryan Reynolds as Randol Schoenberg, the young lawyer who took on her cause, was also, I felt, entirely believable. Also outstanding was Daniel Bruhl as their faithful local Austrian advocate, Hubertus Czernin, who had his own demons to exorcise. But, I regret to say, the plot was entirely predictable, although the flashbacks presented an outstanding portrayal of the panic, fear and brutality that accompanied the "Anschluss", the German annexation of Austria leading up to World War II. And the cinematography in Vienna was outstanding.

Great concept, with excellent performances from Pacino, Benning, and the whole cast. Loved this movie and haven't been this entertained for quite some time. So good I almost want to go to Jersey!

The movie was good, it was sad to see Paul go, and the cast and crew really worked well together. I wish there were more chase scenes, but the action was definitely there. Great locations and music.

First of all, I must say that the cameramen did a great job during the shooting in the Sri Lanka's jungle, so as to subsequently produce such an excellent and enjoyable documentary... The monkeys, mostly macaques with their expressive and funny faces, are funny as the one I had long ago on my native island... In the film, we are brought to places in the jungle we would probably never see in our life. While watching this Disneynature movie today, I was amazed, for instance, to see macaques swimming and diving like human being and 'Tarzan'... It's a must-see movie...

One of the best revenge flicks I have seen. Great pacing. Great lines. Some great camera shots. A sort of throwback to the 1940s and 1950s in terms of style.

Some of my favourite actors in this film including the curmudgeonly Charles Dance so my approval was a foregone conclusion. Always like Helen Mirren and found Ryan Reynolds delightful. Had a few problems with some of the script but still better than much that I have seen lately. Good film.

Nothing special. The idea of the movie was good but the way it played out was mediocre. I hated the "Hollywood" style ending. Glad I had free tickets otherwise I would not have seen it.

An excellent drama about real life situations without "over acting" or "unbelievable" events. It also asks the one question everyone needs to answer," Do you believe in Jesus Christ? " Well done!

In this family household comprised of father and 2 very different sons, I could not but be reminded somewhat of Death of a Salesman only in that Willy Loman like widower La Paglia are at eternal odds with their sons. This film simply did not work. I think it was an attempt to turn Anthony La Paglia into a main stream actor... something I could have bellowed loud and clear: " It ain't gonna happen!", pardon my French!

First, the description says 3D images, but just to be clear it is not a 3D movie. Most of the actual astronomical content is readily available online, and honestly except for the grand scale of the Imax screen looks better on a monitor. The "resolution" of the projection is not scaled up in proportion to the screen, so it doesn't look very crisp. They add a slight 3D effect by having closer stars and nebula features scroll slightly faster than the back, but it is subtle and without any kind of reconstruction of the structure. What I was hoping for from the movie was along the lines of the 3D reconstruction of the form of the Orion nebula in the Hubble imax movie that they zoom into and fly through. I had hoped that this movie was going to be the same approach applied to other astronomical features -- which would have been particularly appropriate and seemingly feasible for the computational cosmological simulation shown at the end of the movie. Unfortunately I'm still waiting for the day that I get to see an ultra-high resolution 3D flythrough of those simulations. This movie instead treated it like eyecandy with next to no explanation of what it was, or time exploring what was being shown. That said, I'm glad I saw it, especially for the glimpse of the Very Large Telescope facility in south American desert...

The story was good. It had passion, conflict, change, drama and pathos. These are elements that make for a good story. Where this movie failed was the script. One might say the music was the script and to a certain extent this is true. The music was very good but it was not enough. The script failed to let us truly get to know the characters and therefore I left the theater not completely satisfied. I left with many questions unanswered. I do give the acting and cinematography good marks but this movie could have been a lot better with a stronger, more informative script.

The first hour or so is really funny, pulling no punches on offensiveness. It quickly starts sinking, the moralizing comes out, the plot tries to get resolved, yawn. It couldn't maintain its hilarity, and unfortunately does not end soon enough.

A positively pristine picture with a wonderfully written (modernized) retelling of a classic children's "Fairy Tale" that evokes a sweet sense of awe & wonder at the basic beauty & benevolence within such a "simple", ethical & charismatic character as Cinderella! Lily Thomson play an absolutely superlative role as the lovable Cinderella whose inherent & natural wisdom (juxtaposed against the stark, scheming & cruel) step-mother (Cate Blanchett) & her two plotting (& plodding) siblings/cohorts (Sophie McShera & Holliday Grainger) is as refreshing to (almost) everyone as a fine & fresh springtime breeze. With a dazzling display of delightful dresses & comely costumes, sumptuous & superlative scenery, marvellously magical & mesmerizing music (a stupendous & scintillating soundtrack), this magnificent masterpiece tells a tremendously timeless tale of how the valiant virtue of Cinderella’s hallowed humility can vanquish the vain vehemence of the putrid poisons of pride, vanity & joyless jealousy which Cinderella’s (sinister & scheming) stepmother & stepsisters so despotically display. Chris Weitz, wields a wondrous wand of writing & retelling of this timeless tale of triumph over the pitfalls of the putrid poison of pride & prejudice. Equally proficient is the masterful & delightful directing of Kenneth Branagh. I saw this magical movie two days in a row & plan on watching it once again sometime soon! This fine film fare brought a torrent of tears to my eyes at the sheer joy & basic beauty of the kindness of the human heart! Let us all hold hands together & raise FOUR THUMBS UP toward the pre-springtime heavens!!

I absolutely loved this movie so much I saw it twice. Why? Because it's a great action comedy! Loved the comedy in it! The action was great and Samuel L. Jackson is the best. I definitely would recommend this movie. One of the best ones in theatres right now actually.

The telling of a story gets better with time, and perfecting the background stories. Disney went way beyond. I watched the original with my boys, and I watched this new one with my wife and a friend. At 73 years of age I still was amazed by the glamour, special effects and the telling of the story. We wept, we laughed, we very much enjoyed the movie. I liked to watch a movie that the language did not make me glance at a young child a few seats away and wonder why they brought her/him. Narrow minded people find problems with everything. IT IS A FAIRYTALE. Great work Disney.

Colorful, delightful, a mix of young and old (people), humorous. Well acted by all. Loved the scenery somewhere in India. Most enjoyable. Uplifting when you're getting on with the years and think that life is worth living, adventurous, never give up. It looks like the cast enjoyed themselves. For once, this story is about living, and enjoying life in spite of the shortcomings of getting on with life. Bravo!

Disney, Costner and all supporting cast, did a superb job producing a great sports drama that takes place in a farm-rich valley of California; a place where the unimaginable happens. It is inspired by a true story which is even more compelling. The story plays out over a span of many years and the legacy continues today as you will see. Not everyone can live the American dream and what is that anyway? The kids who are running against all odds have a different “American dream” because it’s all relative. There is an unwavering commitment to help their families, teammates and others- no materialism, plasticity, nor blatant sex- just a touching story full of good old fashion values. How refreshing is that? The power of family togetherness, hope, love, striving for excellence in the smallest of things and incredible work ethic, -come what may, there is always a smile, a joke, a simple gratitude for the smallest of things, an enduring faith, and a perseverance that takes these kids into probably the best part of their lives at that moment in time. A renewed sense of hope in their mundane and unspoiled world is to be regained. We witness courage, inspiration, strength, respect and a welcoming of diversity as one "home, sweet home." The audience clapped at the end of the film, and you don't witness that every day. Go see McFarland; you will laugh, perhaps shed a tear or two but mostly, you will feel for the characters and their need to change their world into some sense of mastery and a sense of moving forward. It is truly an amazing story of an unspoiled people with a very big dream. This one is sure to grab an Oscar.

I loved Chappie. I can see why people aren't liking it, but you have to like Neil Blomkamp to like his films. Everyone bashes Elysium and I thought it was better than District 9, this is the worst out there, but still an amazing film. Neil Blomkamp easily is top 3 in Hollywood as a director and I can't wait for his Alien 5...

Great characters, good story development (except for the villain), and a good movie for kids and adults. As an adult, it won't be hard to follow your kids in this experience, even though you will find minor weaknesses about the movie. It is really enjoyable!

I had been looking forward to seeing this movie since it's original screen date - last Oct/Nov. An update on those swinging '60s spy movies. Improved storyline to the graphic novel that spawned it. Great cast, cool action scenes, and great plot. Loved that Mark Hamill was used as an actor in this movie when he was named in the graphic novel. Well worth seeing.
