you have GOT to be kidding

Ok, keep in mind I love this movie. I think everyone should see it at least once, as it is easily the best picture of accumulating hatred, agression, and racism that has ever been made.

But "Weird Gurl"'s comment about how she doesn't think he should have gone to prison because he was defending himself and his family is just asinine. Protecting your family is one thing, but murdering two people in the most brutal possible way simply because they broke into your car is NOT self defense. They never even entered the house. The brutalness that I mentioned is that when Derek(Ed Norton) saw the three black men, he kicked open the door, shot one of them dead on the spot and shot a second in the leg. At this point the third man drove away in Derek's car, provoking Derek to empty the rest of his clip at the man while he drove away. He then proceeded to drag the remaining man out into the street, and forced him to open his mouth and bite the cement curb. While the man had his teeth on the curb, Derek Stomped on the back of his head, crushing his teeth first, before the rest of his head caved in. That is NOT self defense.

Love him or hate him, Moore has fashioned a powerful indictment of a president who probably has never been on the "internets". There is also real power in the stories of some average people, you will not forget.

The Best!

Just looking at the names of the cast members will tell you this is a FANTASTIC movie--Jean Harlow, Myrna Loy, Spencer Tracy, and William Powell. This is really comedy at it's finest, and all four stars are in great form. Myrna's brunette beauty is perfect up against Jean's brassy blonde, and William Powell nearly steals the show. You've got to see this one!

I love that a musical can be so popular.

As a singer myself and voice teacher. It thrills me when a musical is made into a film and has success these days. This is a very pretty film to look at. Very enjoyable.

The Definitive Sleeper

The critics completely blew it on this one as it was easily the best movie of the year. I walked out thinking Gooding (actor) and Hopkins (supporting actor) had oscars in the bag. I usually can't stand "show me the money" Gooding (one of the least deserving supporting actor oscars in Jerry McGuire since what's her name in My Cousin Vinny). I knew even at that time I saw it that it was underpromoted and underattended. I had low expectations, but was totally blown away. I haven't so differently read a movie since Billy Bathgate bombed so miserably.
An extremely well-acted and written movie with, gasp, a fully developed female character that complements the two leads. This movie pressed some buttons, and I was frequently in tears as it touched on issues of family and human nature. I was amazed that Hopkins character was so clearly distinguished from Dr. Lector - because it seemed otherwise such a repeat in the trailers - once I saw it. Many a critic pronounced it another Lector character, which shows their haste - only someone who must rush through so many movies to review could miss its greatness. OK, many friends have seen it with equally ho-hum reviews... I don't get it. It just makes it all the more special a movie for me.
Given the mixed reaction this movie gets, go ahead and watch it - you may love it too.

excellent film!

This film does an amazing job of portraying the effects of long-term insomnia. If I recall correctly, they did something involving using metallic/silvery filters to give it that strange, cold, creepy look. And the main actor is so dedicated to his role - he lost 65 pounds for this movie (he wanted to lose another ten, but the director forbid him ). It just really puts you into his crazy, insomniac world, where you can sort of sense that something is wrong and something strange is going on -- and it's like it's right under your nose but you just can't see it because you're too tired and exhausted -- so you can't quite figure it out, and you feel yourself going nuts along with him. Sort of similar to "Memento" (lots of people make that comparison) in that time is a little confused/shifted (and in that you have to wait until the very end to really understand it all), but definitely something very different from Memento at the same time, and, I think, a little better.

(If you're a big nerd like me, continue reading).

This movie has an amazing list of inspirations, from all my personal favorite authors and films (so of course -I- love it, but I hope you'll like it too...) It has been called Kafka-esque and Dostoevskian, and I can see why. Definitely VERY strange, dream-like, and engaging! The film's look was inspired by old german films like Nosferatu (another great movie), Vampyr (also interesting), and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (crazy film noir / avant-garde / Tim-Burtonish looking but way before Tim Burton but must have been his inspiration). A combo of Russian literature and German Film - my two favorite things! Excellent! :)

I was looking for something VERY relaxing & this was just the thing. The chanting takes some getting used to, but I'm relaxed yet energized every time I do this video. This video is just right for beginners & very uplifting during what can be an uncomfortable & stressful time. This video is helping me enjoy my pregnancy more--well worth the $$. My 2 year old is even starting to mimic some of the poses!

Life Saver!

Ever since my baby was 2 months old he has loved this video. If he cries, we pop it in and he stops immediately. If he doesn't settle down to sleep, we put on the video and he settles down for bedtime. I can clip his nails while he watches it and take care of other things because he is so engrossed. It's wholesome and its just a life-saver.

I LOVE IT!!!!!

I bought this movie before I saw it, and when I saw it I was so glad that I owned it. I really think Leonardo DiCaprio did a great job as Howard Hughes. He really showed how much of a great man Howard was and how he could have done many more great things had he lived in an era where his OCD could have been treated.

Million Dollar Baby definately deservered to win best picture last year, but if it didn't win this movie would've.
