    upon rewatch, this is solidified as my number 3 movie of all time & could maybe move up at some point in my life. i can't think of a negative aspect in any way. this is a truly perfect film to me & i can relate to Curt looking all night for the white thunderbird, except it's coldstone

    patrick can recommend one of the most boring stinkers on the planet one day & then a masterpiece like this on another. this film was absolutely mesmerizing from the very first shot. the atmosphere was established right away along with a very simple but intriguing plot. as the movie progresses, i became more & more interested in the 2 leads & the actions that would follow. i'll leave the review brief cause i'm sure more of the guys will watch it, but this has one of the most intense & well shot scenes i've ever seen on film. this is a masterpiece & one that i'll definitely remember forever

    wanted a short watch & this has been called a masterpiece a lot but although a good movie, there are problems with it. i think the 3rd act was messy even though it hit home the message of the film. i personally thought it could've been done better. felt very choppy towards the last 25 minutes but the first 2 acts were very great. good movie but fumbles it slightly towards the end for me

    good movie. i didn't have high expectations so a 3 is a fine score with me. i laughed at a lot of parts & the chemistry between the leads was good but with films that are based on repeating days, it's tricky to not make them feel tedious & this did in certain spots. not too much to say about it but an enjoyable movie. couldn't say it was really good though

    sometimes you decide to watch a film based on the premise or a specific actor & that was the case with this one. the premise sounded interesting & i love Joseph Gordon-Levitt. welp this was a mistake to watch this one. this movie isn't bad because of a stereotype which is where the bad reviews of this film are geared towards. this movie sucks because the writing & acting throughout were atrocious. pretty laughable honestly & to top it all off, i'm gonna pull…

    i've been trigger happy on the 5's recently such as The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, which i did rerate at its proper 4.5 score. but Cinema Paradiso has touched me like no other film has before. the relationship between Toto & Alfredo was built up perfectly. the theme of the film is beautiful. there are films out there that are really bold & can pay off & be incredible, or just suck. this film knows it's strength is in its characters. no deeper meaning as some other movies put out. this one just hits home for me with one of the best endings ever put to screen
