I thought there was no point doing three separate posts as I pretty much watched these movies back to back to save time. I have one more film to watch tonight and it will probably be Fight Club which I will review separately.
This is the second time I’ve watched this movie.
I cried 7 times. And it was proper, uncontrollable crying, there are tissues all over my bed. I have a headache, I was crying to much.
I feel sick to my stomach.
People would argue that Spielberg shouldn’t of done this movie in such detail but it is needed. We need to be reminded of what humans can do to one another. We must never forget what happened. Like Spielberg said, we must never forget what happened so there is never another Hitler.
Everyone must see this movie at some point in their lives, sooner rather than later.
In memory of the more than six million Jews murdered.
PS: On a funnier note, its Aslan VS Voldemort!
I’m sorry! I watched the first 51 minutes of this film 10 days ago and have only just found the time to watch the rest of it. Please forgive my short and vague review, I’m so tired as I’ve been going nonstop for over 10 of theme parks and shopping. I know this may sound like a luxury [and I’m so grateful that I can do it and that I’ve been able to be with my great friend Laura and my cousins] but its a whoooooole lot of walking and waking up early and going to be late. What I’m trying to say is that I AM TOO FREAKING TIRED TO WRITE A PROPER, LONG REVIEW!!!
I’ve said this a couple of times and I’ll say it again, dramas should NOT be longer than 3 hours! 2 ½ hours is just about bearable but a film stops feeling like a film after that. I said this about a Dances with Wolves and The Last Mohican, that they’re so long they start to feel like a TV show omnibus. Directors need to stop hogging their footage and think about the audience for once.
That’s not to say that this movie is bad because it isn’t, just like the other films I mentioned. It’s a good, classic film. Its about this spoilt brat in 1861 and how she’s in love with this guy but hasn’t told him and he’s going to marry his cousin [gross, I know, but it was all the fashion back then] and then the American Civil War happens and then they have to deal with the aftermath of it all [seeing as they were on the loosing side and therefore had to rebuild their lives] and some love stuff. Sounds lame but its not that bad. Its not amazing and I probably won’t watch it again but its not terrible.
This is a pretty legendary movie and is often considered to be the greatest movie ever. It very well made, beautiful and an interesting story, but it goes on for toooo looooong. Anyways, for those who don’t know, the film is about a ‘British warrior-poet’ called T.E. Lawrence and all about how he helped unite Arab tribes to strike against the Turks in World War I. Sounds a bit boring but it turns out to be very interesting.
This movie is about the lives of a group of Jewish mobsters from when they were teenagers robbing the drunk to men stealing diamonds. Its very good but, in my opinion, could of done with a little more editing. However, I know this movie was edited without the director’s permission and turned out to be crap so I know that it needs to be longer to ‘work’ but I could see areas that weren’t needed.
Good film! Bit weak at moments but its good.
Yeah… I can’t really see why this movie is in the top 500 films of all time as its not really that special in my opinion. Oh well, all to their own opinion.
Its actually not as bad as my dad made it out to be *glares at dad*. It is long, its very very VERY long but its good… its kind of like watching episodes of a TV show back-to-back. So I’d recommend you watch this if you have nothing else to do for the whole day.
Ignore what people say about this film. Its good. Long. But good. If you’ve watched TV show episodes back-to-back, you can deal with watching this movie.
7.45pm – I don’t mind watching this movie but I really just want to watch one of these movies on my list and not have to worry about notes. However, I will try my best but I don’t promise anything. Sorry.
10.06pm – It took a bit of getting into but I ended up really liking this movie. I only made a few notes but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t like it.
Yeah, see, that review/my notes don’t give the film justice at all. I would watch it again if I could just skip the first half an hour.
12.19PM – Grrr, I’m back to being 2 films behind. Anyways, I’ve never seen this movie the whole way through before and I’m actually looking forward to it. However, the review might not be that great because alas, I am not well yet again [but feeling better than yesterday when I could hardly bloody walk!].
Brilliant film, I would happily watch it again and recommend it to all.
