Ah! Finally a movie that isn't a Hollywood inspired shoot-em-up sci-fi P.O.S. A genuinely beautiful film with an incredibly easy performance by Bill Murray - far outdoing anything he has perhaps ever done. It was a true delight that hits home with society's ill's and a good degree of comic balance to keep it real. Thank you.

A very moving film with strong characters portrayed by some of this era's outstanding dramatic actors. Each character is perfectly cast and each actor bring humanity and depth to their role. A deep look at the complexities of family dynamics and the deep need for parental approval despite age or societal status. I can see some Oscar nominations coming out of this film.

X-cellent addition to the X-men franchise. A well written story. Nice to see some of the former X-men characters even though some were cameos. Great Movie!

Promising at first, it rapidly degrades into a sorry, useless mess of clichés gathered from Airport, Die Hard, and of course all of the recent Liam Neeson movies he's put out in the last decade. Liam, talk to your agent...

Brilliant! DiCaprio was at his best. Wish he'd won the award instead of McConaughy who thanked HIMSELF. When Scorcese is directing, the movie is a 'must see'. Power, money, greed, sex, drugs, and feeling completely above the law was a 'normal' way of life for Leo and his employees. Jonah Hill was awesome. I laughed out loud many times, and thoroughly was in another orbit for almost 3 hrs.

I love this movie. In life, we find ourselves in situations that at times seem unbelievable. Getting out of these situations gives us tremendous opportunities for growth and the gaining of self-knowledge. I loved this movie for very personal reasons, and also because of the universality of its messages about self-hatred, longing for love and approval, and the desire for fame and "success" in the outer world. I loved the way in which the young protagonist did not quit; and also seeing the way his character grew over the course of the film. The path to being a professional musician is arduous and extremely competitive. I loved how the director portrayed spiritual laws in action, and how beautifully this movie portrayed the dearth of love between men; and how they long for love and respect from their mentors and role models. Go see this film.

Felt long and overacted but what a performance tool for any actor. Leo must have been exhausted day after day of filming. It is Scorsese so feels like a gangster Goodfellas flick minus the guns. There was a lull at one point but then takes off and never comes back down. Very good film in the end.

This movie should have been a 9-10. Great actors, excellent cinematography, believable effects, but what it lacks is a good sense of story-telling. The first and last scenes should be totally deleted, that alone would have made it an 8. There is too much reliance on visuals, not enough on plot and dialog, understandable, since this is the directorial debut of a cinematographer. There are a few jarring plot moments, a completely bizarre blond make-over of Mara, and a lack of real interest in the lead heroine, but underneath, it is an interesting story, just not well told and directed. This is a movie that could really benefit from a re-release after editing and possibly some additional dialog, as it has many moments of high quality, and deserves better treatment. One can only hope for a "producer's cut", not a director's cut, down the road on blu-ray.

Interesting movie based on WW2 events in Hungary which are generally overlooked in WW2 documentaries. The cruelty and barbarity of the German SS are typical of first hand accounts from survivors, wartime newsreels, historical records and documentaries. The same can be said of the Hungarian collaborators in positions of police and quasi military as happened in other countries such as Poland. While one of the main themes of the movie is that of a Hungarian who spoke German was taking on the role of a German Lieutenant and intervening to save the lives of Jews, was perhaps overblown, but who am I to say, although I do not question that something like that did in fact take place. The fighting scenes and the devastation of the city were very well done and realistic. One can compare them to scenes in A Bridge Too Far and Saving Private Ryan. The swarms of Russian soldiers reminded me of newsreels showing Russians fighting their way into the Reichstag in Berlin. At the end of the movie, as in Schindler's List, photos of the real life personalities, their descendants, post war history were shown along with many of the Jews that were saved. The post war fates of the main German and Hungarian oppressors were also shown.

Was just a wonderful movie. Everyone in the theater was so thrilled and laughing at the funny bits and started clapping and hollering during the race. The actors were superb. Christian Kane was awesome and a joy to watch and listen to on the soundtrack. My heart went out to Skeet Ulrich's character. Trying his best to make it all work out. Such a perfect blend of actors working on a common goal. It was such a pleasure to watch. And I had to admit I did shed a tear with Calvin at his reaction after the race. Will own this movie when it comes out on DVD/Blue Ray. Took my 3 grand girls to see it with me and now we have 3 more #Kaniac fans!

I'm torn on what review to give this film as I feel it awkward that Jackson has insisted on divying up the book into three films. There are parts of the book that get lost in the filler to stretch the story out to three parts. That being said as a film on it's own, this second film flowed much better than the first. It did have certain scenes that were directly from the book, but there was much added that had nothing to do with the book. The action sequences were fantastic, excellent work on bringing Smaug to life. While I do have reservations about these films being a stretched adaptation, this film did leave me curious enough to see what can be done with the third.

Ok, let's see, if this movie is just intended for kids, then maybe it's OK. Otherwise worth less than 5 stars, stay away, very weak story and characters, very predictable. Many of the actors didn't fit in, and the small love story had no chemistry whatsoever.

A Wes Anderson near-masterpiece, even if that is largely due to his typical genius of set-design, costumes, cinematography, camera placement and editing. His films are true cinematic eye-candy, while quirky, verging on precious or twee, they are unique in film history,

Very weak plot. Nothing really makes sense. A girl (Cameron Diaz) dates a guy for two months and has never been to his house in Connecticut but then knows how to get there to surprise him. Wife finds out her husband is having an affair and goes how long before confronting him? Has a breakdown in front of the mistress but not him? Third girl away with him for the weekend. Finds out he’s married and then hangs out that day with the wife and mistress #1. What did he do the rest of that weekend? The idea is a good one but in my opinion it was poorly written. There were some funny lines/situations, casting is great, but I would recommend you wait to rent the DVD.

Good movie. It deals with a lot of complex life issues in a watchable, enjoyable way. Juliette Binoche and Clive Owen are wonderful. The script and dialogue are smart. Even though the issues are deeply serious, there is a lightness to this film.

A gentle film in which a rebellious Saudi teen -a rare entity in strict Saudi Arabia-endeavours to earn money for a bike and learns more about her strict country which does not allow women to drive, vote and insists upon a mode of dress that covers everything. The movie is not shrill or confrontational about the country's traditions which do not allow for either gender or sexual equality. In this first Saudi film (made with great resistance from the authorities) we learn of a modern state (in terms of the availability of cell phones, DVDs and home theatre systems) that remains firmly entrenched in the past. With youngsters like Wadjda there may be change in the future. Utterly charming and a good candidate for one of the year's best.

It should win all the awards for the Oscar's March 2... it has substance which is lacking in "Wolf", in Hustle, in Gravity, 12 Years A Slave (do we really need another movie about the struggles of "black" people in the U. S. of long ago!), Nebraska (slow and same-old, same-old), another movie about the supposedly "degenerate south" (Meryl Streep), and Philomena (what a delightful movie but a simpler movie when compared to the vastness of "Lone Survivor". Compare "Chariots of Fire" - its game-changer in the score - to Gravity. Chariots of Fire Director knew what it was about. The Director of Gravity was "fancy", but the story does not hold much interest - just the "pyrotechnics"!!!

Although the cinematography was excellent and the acting was actually quite good overall this movie left me very uninspired. There were enough large plot holes in this film to fly a spaceship through. If I had known at the beginning of the film that it did not get better... I would have left the theater. All in all I was very disappointed in this movie.

It's a great movie. Really the best of the X-Men movies, and I've seen them all, and they're all good. What I like about it is that it's well balanced. There's something for everyone. A good summer movie. There's good acting, good dialogue, good action and great special effects. Above all else I really cared what happened to the characters. Go and see it. I don't think you'll be sorry. By the way at the end of the long, long credits there's a teaser for the next saga of this series.

My first critic as a 50+!!! The Grand Budapest Hotel is a very good movie that I saw with my kids and nephews. Wes Anderson creates a world of its own which is funny, light, interesting, extravagant and sometimes sad. The very solid cast adapted well to this creation by Anderson. It is a very funny movie with lots of adventure, sarcasm,... We all loved it and I wish that I could go back. The best film I saw this year!!!

I agree with another viewer. (No different than other Jesus movies. Everyone says it was accurate, but why do these movies keep making Jesus "white"? Unless you are religious, probably not for you) A true beliver knows Jesus not white. People would see who are really true believers if one big movie would show a likely actor to play his part. These movie reviewers would show their true selves and may not come to see it. Lets be true to ourselves. [...]

Well, looking at other people's reviews before watching, I knew it was either a love it movie, or a hate it movie. I was absolutely blown away by the direction of Scorsese (again) and I also think that DiCaprio deserves an Oscar award. Jonah Hill also showed his amazing acting talents. The qualude scene has to rank as one of the funniest scenes I've ever seen in a movie. Never a dull moment, just so full of energy. But not as full of nudity as some had made it out to be in my opinion. Drug use is prevalent. As a teenager in the 80's I can remember vividly how everything was in excess: money, shopping, drugs, alcohol, sex. Jordan Belfort's behaviour was not that far fetched. I hope the Oscar nomination board can see past the debauchery displayed in this film and award it for the depth of acting and direction.

Very good movie, though I must say there is no real reason to see it in the cinema. The performances by both the leads are amazing, and I really enjoyed it. It's not as upbeat as most Disney movies though, and the movie posters and trailers don't prepare you enough for the serious themes in the movie. I was very intrigued by the background and sadness of the author of Mary Poppins' life, but also spent too much time trying to explain things to my young daughters after the movie as they thought we were going to see something much more light-hearted.

Lots of heart but not enough substance to rise above other documentaries. This film follows different people that have decided to do the 500-mile trek of the Camino Pilgrimage to some big church in Santiago. As they pass through the different regions, you'll be thinking like an El Grande! (I have no idea if that makes any contextual sense) It's noticeably religious as is normal for this type of spiritual journey. Some of the people's stories are better than others and I did get moved to tears once. But it really moves along at a snail's pace and although it's got great feel-good qualities, it's not fantastic in terms of execution. Bad date movie. Still the film makes a strong case for what this type of adventure does for the soul.

Good flick! Action, story, awesome effects, great actors, and an engaging story. All the things I need to crush a large popcorn. Really liked the performance by the new Magneto. That guy nailed it. Also had a few good strategic laughs tossed in there that brought it all together. There’s also a “after credit” scene, which is the standard these days I guess, so stick around if interested. Be advised, it's at the end of ALL the credits. Gross.

I think it was great but it could have been a lot better. The documentary approach is good but nobody revealed much of what was achieved. Maybe they achieved something but they did not feel like sharing it. The actual trek seems challenging, I found that the inner work of the participants was not revealed. Some of my friends believe that people only realize that the changes they went through only become apparent when they go back to their lives. Maybe, that's the missing part of this film. Still worth the see.

This is a story that should be known everywhere in the world. It shows how otherwise decent people can be manipulated by governments into doing extraordinary evil, and how it destroys many lives at a time."They lied to us..." is so very true -- then and now. You cannot forget some things, but we must try to forgive because," Somewhere the hating has to stop."

In David Cronenberg's strange world, science fiction is far more fiction than science. The main character's ability to morph into a killing machine in the sleaziest manner just wasn't impressive. Debbie Harry's role was less than I was expecting, and I really felt that James Woods was attempting to impress the movie industry in a style that belonged to Tom Cruise. A horror film for people who like horror films.

Not much originality here, the year 1973 was the same year President Salvador Allende in Santiago, Chile was assassinated by foreign Jets that bombarded the Presidential Palace and nobody could save him. It is reminiscent of "Back to the Future". Unfortunately the whole plot is given away at the start. So we follow the Plan set forth by the X-Men: Days of Future Past to change the course of History in a non novel fashion. The rest is Special Effects, futuristic landscapes and Heroes. Mostly eye candy and an attractive mutant, Mystic/Raven played by the new teen Queen Jennifer Lawrence. Very original transformation of the protagonist of better thrillers in the Sci-F genre like The Hunger Games. X-Men: Days of Future Past is a total bore and absolutely predictable.
