Michael W (it) wrote: I really enjoyed this. Some aspects reminded me of Gene Kelly musicals, especially an American in Pars. But the color, theme, and overall feel is a modern take on Jacques Demy's The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. It's full of bittersweet passion and playful charm.

Dannielle A (it) wrote: Was a huge favorite of mine in high school and then slowly went down the list as I grew up and grasped a greater appreciation for film making. It has a great soundtrack, an amazing cast of characters, and is filled with both weepy scenes and laugh-out-loud scenes. One thing I never did understand is why at the end Samantha's character picked the rich-boy jerk over her childhood best friend Jasper whom she loved her whole life (played by cutie Josh Hartnett.) Jasper truly cared about her no matter what, even if her happiness meant her being with another guy. You don't meet a guy like that every day. She should have been with Jasper! But his character is what makes this movie worth watching!!! SPOILER: This is almost a carbon copy of A Walk to Remember.

Senor C (br) wrote: I should actually give this an extra 1/2 rating for the sugar boobies. They were greatly appreciated; in fact the babes are my favorite part of Andy Sidaris's Triple B even if they had 80s hair. There are bullets & bombs but the rest is melodrama that I would see on the afternoon soaps. Darby Hinton is sorta a low grade Magnum PI but he sure shags a lot of fact he fucked everyone female involved in his case except the old hag & even then I bet he would have given the chance...I must say I just really liked the nudity. Hinton's neighbors who use his shower & end up in his bed. His race car driving friend who likes to take her top off when they are being chased & shot @. It's almost like a low grade Russ Meyer..that's not very good. I used 'low grade' twice in this review but I can't think of anything else to describe it but it's low grade entertainment & it is funny @ times; Hinton talks into his tape recorder to help you along w/ the plot in case you couldn't follow it along the way (because I couldn't)...I I know is I liked the boobies

Allan C (br) wrote: There are many echoes of "High Noon" in this 1970s semi-revisionist western about lawman Burt Lancaster determined to bring in a wanted man despite all the various community stakeholder groups wanting him to leave town for their own various interests. Lancaster is fine as the single minded lawman, as is Robert Ryan as the timid town sheriff. Although the story does borrow heavily from "High Noon", the script is smart and is filled with some terrific sharp dialogue. And as an aside, I liked that all of the younger cowboys looked like a bunch of mutton chopped hippies.

Andruw F (ru) wrote: After Benedict Cumberbatch's place, until Brad Pitt came in, I was pretty bored. It didn't completely suck, but it wasn't as good as the rest. Especially in the beginning, with a great score that I felt really worked when it played and added to scenes, editing that was fantastic, and great cinematography including a few single shot scenes that were brilliant (those happened all throughout.) But the whole movie has a great performance from Chiwetel Ejiofor, really great performances from (I think underrated) Benedict Cumberbatch, Brad Pitt, and Paul Dano, decent direction, and writing that isn't bad or anything, but I was surprised that it won the Oscar. It also had some humor (I'm pretty sure it was on purpose because the writer has previously co-wrote Undercover Brother and created the Barbershop series.) I also liked Paul Giamatti for the little he was in there. The story is great, and I think is what mostly holds this all together, and makes it fresh.
