A much more accurate version of the original book than its predecessor, \"Prince Caspian\". As with the whole \"Narnia\" series, the film version has stunning animation and wonderful acting. But the story and it's insightful concepts is the true star. A great value at $1.96, too!
Remove "curious" from the title and replace it with "twee and pointless", and you're close to it. What a incredible shaggy-puppy of a movie, a cobweb-construction patched together with CGI, prosthetics, gibberish and warm tears.
Well first off it's just a great movie! Everything from the cinematography, special effects, the acting, and even the soundtrack was awesome! My cousin was fortunate enough to have worked as an extra in this movie which was shot on location in New Orleans. He was in the scene at the bar when Brad Pitt met his father! Pretty cool if you ask me and he got to meet Brad and shake his hand....he said that Brad was pretty cool and of course my cousin's fiance' said he could never wash his hand again...anyway this movie is at least a must see and for me a must buy and blu-ray is the way to go!!!!
Michael Clayton was a film i approached with caution. it had gathered a bunch of attention thanks to its star, George Clooney, and received an Academy Award for best Supporting Actress, Tilda Swinton(sp?). The first time i watched it i was hooked as soon as the first lines of the film are uttered. Everybody in this movie does an amazing job with the material. Special Features lack some content, other basic stuff like commentaries are included, but it would have been nice to see a behind-the-scenes featurette.\n\n~Amazing Movie!
Swinton's androgynous affect has rarely been better exploited: It's a kick to see her transition among Orlando's numerous identities, whether wooing a Russian princess or submitting to the charms of the horseback-riding Shelmerdine.
Many will relish Broken Flowers' refusal to serve up a resolution; others will find it frustrating. Inevitably, that's Jarmusch: like Murray's character journey, the rewards lie in the small moments that fade as much as the ones that linger.
Mills, a former music video director, writes and directs with subtle clarity, bringing a refreshing sensibility to the archetypical tale in which a displaced teen comes of age in a confusing and banal environment.
