THIS IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE FIRST ONE WHICH I TOTALLY LOVED COURSE TOM CRUISE, WHO COULD ARGUE HE ISN'T MR. WONDRFUL AS AN ACTOR. BUT MR. HOWELL DOESN'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO THE ACTING ABILITY NOR IS HE EVEN BELIEVEABLE. MOVIE CONTENT A BIG 2. MEETS WHAT I EXPECTED - NO WAY! SORRY THIS IS NOT A GOOD REVIEW FOR THIS MOVIE.THE ALIENS WERE THE ONLY THING THAT WAS TRUE TO THE ORIGINAL MOVIE, NO SURPRISE HERE.
One of the all-time best Sci-Fi movies that raised the bar for adventure-horror movies. This was made back when foul language and nudity was not necessary to entertain the movie goers. In my opinion it is also a pre-requisite to watch before seeing the 2005 remake with Tom Cruise. For a 1953 production, the special effects are amazing. The surface topic of the movie deals with alien invasion, but the salvation linked to the humanity of that era is founded on the American values of the day. Faith in God and moral values. Very enjoyable!
The Twilight Saga's New Moon is not terrible, despite featuring some excruciatingly lazy storytelling, atrocious performances, listless direction and a core storyline that is both uninteresting and somewhat disturbing.
I bought this from Walmart Online, it retails in stores for about $22.00 + so getting it at $9 was a steal to say the least. The print is clear and there was no issues whatsoever. Viewing pleasure was all I got and they managed to deliver it earlier than expected! I am a big twilight saga fan and have all the books, now thanks to Walmart Online I have all the movies too ;)
I am very disapointed in this copy of the movie. I really wanted it in bluray and didn't the copy from borders like I did with Twilight. I was happy when it came in. I opened it up right away and I liked the sleeve. I was happy that I got the ultimate fan edition. However, when I opened it, I was upset that there wasn't a dvd copy and a digital copy. What got me the most was that there are no extended and deleted scenes, which I know exist. Very upset with my copy and now have to spend even more money to get another copy. I feel that the Ultimate Fan Edition, should have everything for the Ultimate fan.
this was a great movie! i have always loved joan jett so it was great to see how it all started. those girls were so young when they started out...stewart and fanning did an excellent job portraying jett and currie. highly recommend this movie
If the producers of Twilight were given permission to remake Casper ... they'd probably have his ghostly apparition dress in some three-quarter jean-shorts, just to keep his modesty intact. Somebody has to think of the children, right
Parents of impressionable littlies should be mindful that the film does descend into a very effective nightmare world in the final reel and some time could be spent shielding eyes from Selick's more confronting creations.
Just had to order this movie for her ( 5 years old) - Every time she comes to my house she makes me check to see if it is on demand... The first time she covered her eyes at a certain part, but loves this movie anyway. A very good buy :)
The experience at Walmart is always great. The customer service was top of the line. And not only do I ended up buying one thing. Since Walmart has it all, I always end up buying a cart full of stuff. I Try looking for both movies some where else, but like always Walmart had it and cheaper.
Great movie , although the character's behavior were horrid and leaves a parent with the feeling of dismay. It gives parents, the perfect opportunity to teach a child despite all the negative that is before them in a situation , children can make positive decisions, and if they don't outcomes will become quite a task trying to cover them up. This offers the similarities of all the wrong that can occur in life but in a way that children can have a better understanding on positive decision making.
Though I found Mr. Yakin's direction unexpectedly imaginative, and the script often incongruously subtle, I couldn't get into the spirit of all the whimsy, the reason being the surprising lack of charm in the two leads.
