I liked the seriousness with which it has been made, the willingness to grant deep feeling to its young characters, and the way it avoids of a lot of the cliches... but the failure to enchant in the scenes in the woods leaves a hole.
I really only wanted this collection for the sake of 1 film, The Majestic, which is impossible to find by itself at any store. I knew the single film itself would probably cost as much as all 4 films, too, so I ordered it. Well, I watched all 4 films and loved them! I never saw \"Dumb and Dumber\" and didnt think I'd like it, but, parts of it were hilarious and I enjoyed it immensely. \"The Mask\" is a film I saw when it 1st came out, years ago, and I had totally forgotten how well-crafted and likeable this film was! \"Yes Man\" is a funny and warm film and has a scene where Carrey sings an indie\/pop standard; sent chills down my spine. Wonderful! And of course, \"The Majestic\", the film I bought the set for, will always be one of my favorites. You cant beat this deal! The DVDs came in perfect condition. I chose standard mail and got my package much sooner than I had expected, too. I would say that I am 100% satisfied but I'm not! This collection, the cost, and the quickness with which all was delivered EXCEEDED my expectations. I did very well when I ordered this collection.
Don't leave earth without it and bring your towell
Turns out dolphins, doing all those tricks at marine shows, were really aliens living here and trying to tell us that the earth was doomed. This is how the movie starts. It gets even more ludicrous and ridiculous as it progresses. If you like the bizarre British humour as in Monty Python, this movie has it in spades. For me, it was funny at first and then just got plain weird after a while. A perfect vehicle for weird actress and aptly named Zooey Deschanel. A two headed president of the galaxy, a manic depressive robot, a fish you stick in your ear so you can understand any alien language and the book. A galactic encyclopedia which is like a nook or e-reader but with animated explanations. Awesome picture and uncompressed sound on blu-ray.
Lugubrious, bumbling and sit-com predictable, Our Idiot Brother has a couple of good ideas, no style, an episodic structure and some charming incidental pleasures, not the least of which are the performances, which are good.
Midway through, Rapp loses momentum, failing to hone in on just what kind of movie he wants to make, and Winter Passing languishes in that no-man's land between tiny, meandering, indie drama and plotted, pointed family melodrama.
