While one might have wished for a better movie, and a few smarter decisions regarding the screenplay, generally it's a riveting, even inspirational account of an American feat of arms about which few know but about which many more should.
The cast in this movie did an excellent job in portraying real life people during WWII. They made the events come alive for those of us too young to know what happened over there and brought tears to me during the movie. This is one heck of a great movie. However, it is so close to the events, remember this when you get it as your older family members may be really effected by the movie.
This is one of those ones that let's Danny go all out, This is deff not one for the kids tho incase you don't know what I'm talking about. I for one find this the best comedy of 2011, and don't forget to watch the extras there the best LOL, If your a fan of Eastbound n down this is a must get.
Eat Pray Love is a two hour and fifteen minute ad for being rich; it's a smug, patronising travelogue that -- despite its already apt title -- could have also been called First World Problems: The Movie.
If a Christian can look past the religious implications of the movie, the story of this movie gives a good perspective of the Spiritual Journey we must all take to find our Reward. The Journey is part of our Rebirth and our new Life cannot start without the Journey. The movie also makes a good point in that the Journey doesn't take place until later in our life. Just as the Jew is not to begin indulgence into the mystical side of their religion until after about the age of 40, a Spiritual Journey should not be attempted until the same time frame. Really good movie. It made me so Grateful to have made the Journey and survived.
Sean Penn gives a meticulously detailed performance as the cagey and charismatic pol, but credit should also go to Dustin Lance Black, whose script squarely locates Milk at the center of his community, his city, and his cause.
I have lived on the east coast my whole life and never knew the significance of Harvey Milk.What a wonderful story of a man who changed the city of San Franscisco, but the ripple effect has impacted all Americans directly and indirectly. I would recommend this movie for anyone over the age of 16. The acting was beyond amazing, especially considering Sean Penn and Scott Franco are straight....they did a great job with their gay roles and were very believable in their love for each other. This movie is an important piece of our history and I really enjoyed it.
