Film lover, plain and simple.
I love a lot of Woody Allen's films, but this one was very uneven in terms of quality for me. There are moments when I was laughing out loud, and then there were times that just fell flat. The songs were ok, but most were pretty boring. I think the cast was great, and I adored Alan Alda and Goldie Hawn. The whole romance between Woody Allen and Julia Roberts was very unrealistic. I thought the whole musical number with the ghosts was hilarious though!
I was really expecting a lot more action based on the trailer. This is one of those movies that is slow to build up tension. Only this one doesn't really lead up to much. Some suspense occurred in the middle of the movie and I found exciting, but for the most part, I found it dull. And the ending left me very dissatisfied.
While a great movie, I tend to think of it as a bit overrated. I hate repeating others, but I am in the same boat where I feel that Pulp Fiction is the superior movie, and should have won best picture. With that thought aside, Forrest Gump is still a movie of quality that I enjoyed. It has an inspirational message that anything is possible, and it had memorable moments and characters (looking at you Lt. Dan). Despite my hatred of Jenny, this is definitely a movie everyone should watch at least once.
This is an all time American classic. In a year where so many iconic films came to be, there are few I never heard of before. In fact, up until the Criterion Collection announced it on bluray, I never heard of this one at all. This is something that needs to be changed. More people need to know about this one! Not only is it a great Western, but it has great humor. The script and acting are also top…
