Stephen G (nl) wrote: The film deals with the life of a then 5 year old whose paintings took the art world by storm. As the film progresses a scandal unfolds about the alleged intervention of her father in creating the sell out paintings.The films director misses his opportunity to discuss in depth conflicting notions of authenticity and artistic merit or the worrying amorality of the dissecting media gaze that the family is subject to. Instead the creator glosses over these elements and plays a shallow self reflexive card whereby he attempts to assuage his own guilt for befriending the family and ultimately calling them liars.Ultimately I feel that the parents have become somewhat trapped in a lie, whereby although the father did influence the creation of the paintings, they are forced to pretend otherwise for fear of ridicule at the hands of the population of the world. The idea that artistiuc genius is some kind of abstract, essential truth which is only ever corrupted by influence from the world seems totally absurd to me but it seems to be this concept that is absolutely pivotal in this whole scandal.

All events that occur in other peoples' lives are reality to those people. And whether you want to blindly going about your business, pretending tertible things do not happen to people, they do, and my opinion is that those who allow stories to be told , is a kind if therapy for preparing us all for life's hard realities...Why shoot the messenger of reality?If it depressed you to sit through the punishing story, or you couldn't finish it even, ..then why on earth could you not give the film top marks for achieving it's intended goal.More particularly David Gordon Green, who, should not be shot for being the messenger of misery...rather , awarded...for having the guts to write and direct all types of stories, whether we like the story or not...in as beautiful a way possible (Malick?)...and do them for 1.5mil? In No Countty for Old Men, OBVIOUSLY another book adaptation...and even The Road..strong stories, but in my opinion..all equal in production quality...all 3 with un-fashionable endings.What happened to this brave storytelling in American film? Would Cassavetes films rate 68% with today's critetia ?Not saying Green is lebel of Casavates yet, but with criticque such as this...another one is likely to emerge on this side of the pond.I don't know about the rest of you people, but maybe less thought about if YOUR almighty,(blockbuster night, honey?) distinguished thirst for entertainment has been quenched...look past it and realize this man has met all the criteria of a 4 or 5 star movie.From visually stunning cinematography to strong characters and casting, and even the music, perfect fit- Canadian band, A Silver Mt. Zion during the gripping end sequence.(A side-project of Godspeedyoublackemperor.Which is is the same band featured in 28 Days Later's soundtrack.) It Doesn't have to be a Cross-dressing Robin Williams, or an '"uproariously funny" Martin Lawrence~heart toucher every night! It's consensus such as these that force TALENTS such as, Green, to make movies like Your Highness.This was the Best film of the year, without a doubt.Say that with confidence, a few years later.

Mitch S (gb) wrote: This is one of my all-time favorite movies. Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve - two of my favorite actors - are 100% why this is a great movie. The amazing aspect of this movie is that, like the play, all of the action really takes place in one room. It shows us again that what makes movies great is people: Their relationships and interactions, carried out on screen by solid actors. The self-referential, who-done-it, evolving plot is very entertaining and will keep you on your feet, engaged in the devious plotting of its two male protagonists. Few movies made today have the courage to do such simple and direct story-telling, that it reminds us of how simple and yet how engaging simple dialogue between two interesting characters can be. I watch this movie over and over because I just love the dialog between Caine and Reeves and the way two very different actors can interact and weave their dramatic tale till its final dramatic end.
Wendy B (it) wrote: Really great Doris Day movie! Very hilarious scenes with James Garner (including one where she decks him with her handbag--that was priceless!) and Polly Bergen (she has a recurring role in "Desperate Housewives" as Lynette's alcoholic mother). Overall a good, fun movie--and watch the car wash scene! :)
Jeff B (br) wrote: Despite the sheen of sentimentality afforded the dog of a calamity presented here, this Disneyfied true story can't help but keep all but the most cynical moviegoers invested in this somehow loveable snow job. Fluffy but earnest, the real events sometimes feel sanitized more than dramatized. This proves purposeful, allowing for a broader (read: family) audience. So, facts get kinda sorta truncated, characters become near-caricatures, and human drama mostly gets played safe. The bare Milk Bone facts behind the almost Movie-of-the-Week spit and polish, however, punches through any hint of melodrama and grabs the audience. There's an art form to this kind of filmmaking, after all, and it's a precarious balance that the ultimately heartwarming Eight Below pulls off. In this PG-rated drama, a scientific expedition comprising sled dog handler Jerry Shepard (Paul Walker) and a rugged American geologist (Bruce Greenwood) become forced to leave behind their team of beloved sled dogs due to a sudden accident and perilous weather conditions in Antarctica. The late Paul Walker always stood and delivered like a well oiled matinee idol. Oh, there was never any chance of putting him in the pure, raw nerve, Oscar-baiting acting league of Daniel Day-Lewis or even Ryan Gosling, but this was never his or H'Wood's plan. Great looking and likeable to girls AND guys, he wasn't hired to go method and actually live among the huskies in the frigid tundra snow, he was hired to be the concerned and heroic human face behind the true star, man's best friend--a task he does truthfully and beautifully here. Bottom line: 7 Up-Lift
