Most trails were original animal tracks!! Horses across the wilderness then wagons, then autos then trucks, then Interstate Highways. Looks like it should have been to 6th graders for a Social Studies class. Will I pay money for it? Hmm. maybe it will be 'on demand'? No? Not that good.
it's entirely inaccurate to call it Marxist; it has no suggestion of collective ownership, which is the cornerstone feature of Marxism; anything that brings into question oppression and abuse of power isn't "Marxist"; you might as well then call Thomas Jefferson and the American Revolution "Marxist"! ;)
As for the movie, I liked it quite a lot, it seemed to have a nice positive energy about it.
"gentile actors simulating sweaty Semitic sex appeal"
I guess Jewish actor Logan Lerman will be simulating sweaty gallic sex appeal in the upcoming Three Musketeers.
Couldn't agree more, especially after seeing this movie last night... she is something quite special!
Homely girl I beg to differ. To me, Jenna is a beauty and to top that she seems to be a genuinely nice lady. I would be flattered to be compared to her. I know so many think Jennifer Aniston is a great beauty but let me tell you, to me Jenna has it all over her. She's radiant. http://bit.ly/oOWTym
Atwell sat down recently to discuss the finer points of her soldier character, Peggy Carter, and how the woman in director Joe Johnston’s epic will set the standard for her for all upcoming roles that are deemed "strong women." http://bit.ly/pEJd4q
The "suspense" part of the film works brilliantly, but James Miller (Shimell)'s "on and off" proficiency in Italian (e.g., he manages to speak chunks of Italian in praise of his translator at the beginning of the film, but inexplicably doesn't seem to understand a word of Italian the woman at the cafe speaks and needs Elle [Binoche] to translate for him) is obviously a slip. Since the linguistic gap is to crucial to the misunderstanding, the fly in the ointment regrettably makes the otherwise intriguing premise of the film conspicuously flawed.
Please do not read into what I did not say. I simply responded to the previous comment. Of course everyone should be able to make up her/his own mind. I did, which seems to be at the root of this discussion. Apparently you consider this film to be a work of art, but I don't know how you define your terms : a film, by definition, is a work of art, or this film is outstanding?
Are you implying, Artemis, that this work of art, simply because you didn't like it personally, should not be widely distributed in theaters so that people can make up their own minds about it? Scary.
Nice, but you forgot Nico.
Isn't it the quality of the content of the film, not the previous works of its director nor the hoopla surrounding its premier, which should determine how broadly or whether the film is released? As you participate in an annual review of Academy Award contenders -- do you not? -- you may have commented on films whose promotion you felt to be greater than the stuff they were flogging. Look at the films that were not awarded at Cannes.
you don't understand how a major American director's new film, which took the top prize at the world's premier film festival, found a distributor?
Sorry, I don't understand how he found a distributor for this film which is all over the place and nowhere. How can you speak of it in reference to Kubrick's " 2001 : a space odyssey" -- I guess that's your reference --which holds together from beginning to end? For the shallow, vacuous role of Sean Penn, it might as well have been played by X. And what about the dinosaurs, huh? Without a doubt the shots of natural phenomena are exceptional, but Yann Arthus-Bertrand's been there, done that. I nearly fell asleep, whereas others in my local cinema simply walked out.
Sadly, I haven't seen it.
Nothing to say about "Second-Hand Hearts"?
SO happy someone labeled the movie as what it is, schlock.
So there's absolutely NOTHING in the movie that you liked? What about the credits? Were they in the correct font?
The Beaver does not speak with an Australian accent, he speaks with a Cockney accent. Mel Gibson worked with Ray Winstone in Edge of Darkness and adopted his Cockney accent for the Beaver.
Your bias shows, your last comment ... In some ways, the spectacle of a toxically miserable Mel might be most satisfying for those who categorically refuse to see the movie.
Writers, Journalists and Film Review writers, or is it just Mel haters, who seem to have forgotten what it is to be human. They spew awful things when rational and sober.
I feel so bad for anyone involved in this movie (w/ the exception of BlowMe asshole Mel)
