Sergei Eisenstein's final film, this is the first part of a three-part biopic of Czar Ivan Grozny, which was never completed due again to producer dissatisfaction with Eisenstein's attempts to use forbidden experimental filming techniques and excessive cost overruns. The second part was completed but not released for a decade after Eisenstein's death and a change of heart in the USSR government toward his work; the third part was only in its earliest stage of filming when shooting was stopped altogether. In this first part, set during the early part of his reign, Ivan faces betrayal from the aristocracy and even his closest friends as he seeks to unite the Russian people.

Christopher Plummer, Natalie Wood, and Robert Redford give incredible performances. The screenplay is well written. Robert Mulligan did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the drama and romance. Inside Daisy Clover is a must see.

Ted W (ag) wrote: Terrible underrated movie starring Sigourney weaver, I can't believe that this movie is called the best horror movie of all time. To me this movie sucks, it's not iconic and the only good thing about this movie is the alien when it kills everybody, that's it.
John M (fr) wrote: One of the most entertaining biographical stories out there. So based on a true story, this is the story of Frank Abagnale Jr. (Leonardo DiCaprio). He possesses the very unique ability to pass as any occupation he felt like being, such as an airplane pilot, a lawyer, or a doctor. He was also a master check forger, which doesn't sit to well with the FBI. When an agent (Tom Hanks) becomes obsessive about apprehending this genius criminal, it remains to be seen just how long Abagnale can stay in front of the law. This is a movie that has grown on me throughout the years, and it now sits as one of my very favorite movies of all time. When we stumbled upon this on cable the other day, my wife and I looked at each other, decided to pull out our own copy and start from the beginning, and I immediately became as enraptured with it as if it was my first time watching it. Even from the very start, this grabs you and doesn't let go. This may have my favorite opening credit sequences of all time, it is really that artful and skillfully done. This is a story that is too incredible to be fake, and the movie does a great job at selling that this is possible, which it has to do, because this really happened. From the beginning when Abagnale pretends to be a substitute teacher even though he is just a student, it shows the extent of how ridiculously smart he is. He's got the dangerous combination of the intelligence and charisma, which allows him to succeed at whatever he wants. Another reason why this movie is so fantastic is because of how much fun it is. It is made to look as tantalizing as can be, and it does a great job at selling you on this lifestyle, so much so that you want to see the man succeed in spades. This is an infectious story that shows how this man fooled a vast number of people. It shows just how much misdirection can be caused by a simple compliment, and how easy it is to get people to believe what you want them to. Once Abagnale mastered that ability, it was all easy street from there. Catch Me If You Can is a raucous good time and an excellent cat and mouse story as well. Tom Hanks is splendid as always, and he gets to deliver what I believe to be the best knock knock joke of all time in this. I can't recommend this enough, and it is one of my favorites for good reason.
Harry W (au) wrote: Teaming up both Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor in the one film and receiving positive recognition for doing so, I Love You Phillip Morris sounded like a film with potential for hilarity and great acting.I Love You Phillip Morris is a lot to take in, a cinematic experience heavy in plot dynamics yet very light in tone much of the time, proving somewhat overwhelming in just how much the viewer has to take in. The film takes the most ridiculously lighthearted approach to being gay which ultimately proves to be the driving force behind actually everything in the story. There is no room for melodrama surrounding the sexuality of the characters, it is merely a diminutive element in a much wider narrative about the comedy of escape and the drama of love.For the majority of the first hour, I Love You Phillip Morris rushes through its story at such a ridiculous pace that the manic energy is likely to just wear viewers down. I know that I found it to be a bit much and that even the fast-paced antics of Jim Carrey were not rapid enough to trail I Love You Phillip Morris at an appropriate pace. The film attempts to squeeze in multiple prison escapes, a lot of tasteful gay jokes and romantic drama into a running time of 93 minutes and call it a true story,. The extent of reality is uncertain, but I'm willing to believe that the story happened. Yet there is a lot to suggest that I should believe otherwise. The fact is that the film has such a remarkable true story to it, and the fact htat it all actually happened is a lot to take in. Unfortunately, the pace does not structure the film perfectly. The rapid movement of things also makes it more difficult for the reality of the story to prove believable. The film doesn't put everything about the antics of Steven Jay Russell into the most detailed perspective and instead attempts to run through much of his life in a very brief time period while degenerating many of his achievements and life experiences to brief jokes or just jumping from one to the next without sensibly taking some time to fill the gaps in between. A lot of this seems to be an effort to characterize Steven Jay Russell, but that actually doesn't happen until the film slows down later on. That is when the film actively manages to use rich drama to transcend a rather shallow comic nature that it has spent so long building. The sudden chance can seem strange, but when the film charters into sentimental territory, I Love You Phillip Morris achieves some of its truly greatest moments. The third act of the film is where the drama and characters really jump out, creating some unexpectedly powerful moments. The drama in the film is all the more powerful by contrast to the preceding comedy, giving an unexpected level of edge to the feature which really leaves a striking effect. The more the story progresses and the drama intensifies, the more the film focuses on developing the relationship between Steven Jay Russell and Phillip Morris. There is such beauty in what they share, such a powerful depiction of passion that stems from the script. As a result, the romantic drama of I Love You Phillip Morris is a truly effective plot element which makes a powerful impact within a short span of time, successfully ensuring that the film is one I can recommend. As weird as the pacing of it all is, when I Love You Phillip Morris is comically oriented its lighthearted nature is easy to embrace and charming enough to be the source of a few laughs while it just improves when it has to get dramatic about things. This can very much be credited to the remarkable leading performance of Jim Carrey.Jim Carrey's performance is his greatest of the entire 2000's decades. Everyone is aware of the swift-witted comic persona, and he incorporates that into I Love You Phillip Morris as a means of conveying the man's ability to change the colour of his skin to fit the context of any situation that calls on him. Yet though this archetype is popular in Hollywood, I Love You Phillip Morris is far from a Hollywood. Ultimately, the material gives him the chance to deliver his most tenacious role since his Golden Globe winning performance in Man on the Moon. Flawlessly capturing the confidence ability to morph into any person he so wishes, Jim Carrey's greatest con is convincing the audience that he is actually Steven Jay Russell. The humanity comes from the more melodramatic scenes where he knows to really delver deep into the character, and the sight of him resonating with the role with such depth that he tears up as he delivers an emotional monologue is a truly stunning thing. Jim Carrey conveys a brilliantly versatile comic spirit in I Love You Phillip Morris where he keeps up with the over the top story without being heavily reliant on his pre-established comedic material and is able to restrain himself well enough to divert his familiar talents into an innovative performance, but more importantly he flexes his dramatic muscles for the first time in years and does it with such beautiful dedication to detail in the character that I was left forgetting that it was a performance. I Love You Phillip Morris certainly features one of his career-best performances.Ewan McGregor is also wonderful. For an actor with such a high-profile Hollywood career to boast about, I Love You Phillip Morris hands the accomplished actor a relatively brief supporting role where he acts like never before. Abandoning his traditional sense of wisdom and vigilante determination, Ewan McGregor's energetic flamboyance in I Love You Phillip Morris is both hilarious by contrast to his more serious efforts and charming in its own way. His frailty is the true element of his character, transforming into the source of all his humanity during the most touching moments of the film. Ewan McGregor has little screen time, but he says a lot about his character with a brief performance where he puts exceptional dedication into the part and shares some beautiful scenes with Jim Carrey.So I Love You Phillip Morris is an oddly paced film which rushes through a story to turn much of Steven Jay Russell's life into cheap gags, but the touching sentimentality of the third act and consistent dedication from Jim Carrey push the film into successful dramatic ground.
