Amie S (gb) wrote: Another romance that tries to answer the question of fate vs. planning - and mostly does a good job telling the story. The only problem I had was that even at only 1 hour and 45 minutes, it dragged a bit.

Brian V (gb) wrote: This movie gets a whole star and a half for having Jessica Chastain (my biggest celeb crush) in it. Otherwise, this movie is of 1 star quality. It is basically a cliche ridden, made for TV movie with a dichotomy of talent. Chastain does a great job (maybe I'm biased) and Palminteri is great. Denise Richards is horrible. For example, there's a scene where she finds her estranged husband in a tattoo shop. Her anger is portrayed by a sequence involving two slaps to his face which is then followed by her pounding on his chest. It seemed so awkward and unnatural, which literally made me laugh out loud.

Alex S (fr) wrote: It covers themes that many movies would be scared to tackle, and does so in shockingly blunt ways, Teeth starts out with subtle satire, but by the end just becomes a feminist exploitation film.

John C (es) wrote: Completely "quirky" (to use that odious term), but very endearing and engrossing.

Kevin R (nl) wrote: All I want is a pocket full of rocks.Union Officer Kerry Bradford escapes prison and encounters an eccentric woman from Virginia City, Nevada. He agrees to return to the city with her, but she will only allow him to follow her if he promises to not ask any questions. Shortly after arriving in her home town, he discovers that $5 million in gold is being sent though the town to save the confederacy. Will Bradford get involved in this money or will he stay under the radar with his new found friend?"Are you going to visit your wife?""No. I was running away from her...and fast too."Michael Curtiz, director of Casablanca, White Christmas, Mildred Pierce, The Adventures of Robin Hood, the Vagabond King, Yankee Doodle Dandee, and Captain Blood, delivers Virginia City. The storyline for this picture is pretty good with dynamic characters and a good ending (a bit sad, but good). The settings were very well done and the film had a war and western feel at the same time. The acting was very good and the cast includes Errol Flynn, Miriam Hopkins, Randolph Scott, Humphrey Bogart, and Alan Hale."I thought I'd let you work out your own punishment.""That's amusing."I DVR'd this picture last May off Turner Classic Movies (TCM) for two reasons: it is directed by one of my all time favorite directors, the great Michael Curtiz, and it also has one of the all time great actors, Errol Flynn. Curtiz took a huge risk of mixing the two genres, the war drama and the western action pictures, and pulled it off. Flynn does a great job of battling his demons while participating in great shootouts. This isn't my favorite film by either stakeholder, but it is an entertaining picture with great characters and a magnificent ending."Can't you see this is murder?"Grade: B

Andrew S (us) wrote: A wine tasting road trip to salute Jack's final days as a bachelor careens woefully sideways as he and Miles hit the gas en route to mid-life crises. The comically mismatched pair, who share little more than their history and a heady blend of failed potential and fading youth, soon find themselves drowning in wine and women. Emerging from a haze of pinot noir, wistful yearnings and trepidation about the future, the two inevitably collide with reality.
