Huw G (ca) wrote: The dialogue's a bit variable, sometimes natural and funny, at others over written and awkward for the characters. The story is very standard but done particularly well, even if it has as many inconsistencies as most. Over all it's a definite success, despite its imperfections.

The main flop in this movie that really batheres me is that this prince from DK and all the people in his court aparently speaks british english with eachother. And it should get it's facts straight. I know that the movie is fictive, but still. In Denmark we don't have crownation cereomony and our princes names are always Frederik or Christian. It's just a really sluppy job on the facts.

'Kramer vs. Kramer' is an excellently crafted drama with excellent performances across the board. I love how this film was made, it screams classic filmmaking, we know the entire setup for the plot in the first five minutes and it already has us hooked. Dustin Hoffman steals the show as the struggling father just trying to make everything work and I'm glad we see how he deals with everything, as this film tackles themes and stereotypes that still haven't been broken, even till this day. His look reminds me of Al Pacino from 'Dog Day Afternoon' here and it makes sense because they were both considered for that role because of how much they looked alike and looked like the real person. Meryl Streep was odd, it makes sense now why she won 'Supporting Actress', even though I just expected her to be in it more given the title and she does a reliably good job as well. I did find it a bit odd to just see her staring out the window from the caf, though, and honestly, while it brings up stereotypes with her as well, namely, just because she's a female doesn't mean she's a better parent, I really didn't like her character nearly as much as Dustin Hoffman's. I don't doubt that it happens because this world is huge, but no parent that I have ever met, that actually loves their child, would ever just leave their child for their own sake. Sure, she had to get out of a situation that made her unhappy, I get that, but she wrote to her son that, 'she's still a mommy but has other things to do?' Who writes that? Especially to their own child? You can still leave a bad situation and still attempt to see your own child, it's ridiculous. Justin Henry was great, it made me laugh that his name was Billy but seeing the effects that the split has on him is hard to watch and I'm also surprised he didn't wake up when the parents were arguing at the start. His relationship with his dad felt real, I was surprised when he said 'crap' but considering what his dad says later, it makes sense. All the other actors, especially the lawyers, no matter how big or small of a role, were excellent. The film is brought to life by an outstanding screenplay; I loved it so much, it was so real and filled with excellent dialogue that had your undivided attention. The way one of the early scenes end with the line, 'How much courage does it take to walk out on your kid?' just had me in awe of how powerful that line was, coupled with the excellent editing this film has as well. The film also had a pretty lively soundtrack that reminded me of a Wes Anderson film at points. It made me laugh that Hoffman's character talked about when someone says sorry, you should accept their apology because earlier on in the film there was a scene where the son kept saying sorry and he was still annoyed, but it made sense. There's also quite a lot of humour in this film as well, some of it was strange, when he is at an interview and he opens to door to a party on the other side, that just seemed crazy; and he should have said he wanted the job because he still wanted to work in that field! But there was a story being told at the start of the film that I still want to know how it ended! The build up to the eventual court case is brilliant, we see father and son finally making French Toast successfully and it made me smile. The scene where they all meet again in the park was nice for the son, I thought it'd have that moment where Hoffman would say, 'hey Billy look who it is', but that wouldn't really have fit and it was handled great. The court case showcases another example of fantastic dialogue and it's great to watch, even though it still bugs me that people blame, usually fathers, in films for being away all the time because they're working, it's not like he was being a deadbeat and he should have said he was let go from his job because of his son. It's really unfair how all that plays out, but then it leads up to a very smart and different ending. We can all relate to this film in some way as it hits home for pretty much every one of us, it's hard to watch at some points just because of how much Ted is struggling but still prioritises being a good father, and one scene where he has to run to the hospital was outstanding. While Coppola's work for 'Apocalypse Now' is some of the greatest filmmaking of all time, I guess they decided that a film about a family is more relatable as well as the fact that 'The Deer Hunter' did in fact win the year before, even though I don't agree with how The Academy chooses how what film wins. And regardless of all that, it is an overall excellently made film.

Tanner B (jp) wrote: -IGNORE THIS "OUT OF FIVE" RATING4/4Stunning film about three soldiers put on trial for cowardice during the face of war and their one determined commander defending them. Subtle and uncompromising in its approach with a staggering battle scene and painful ending. Stanley Kubrick's most heart-breaking film to date.

Ramin R (ag) wrote: Great movie! This will require multiple viewings for me to really try to figure it out, but after the 1st time I can say that this movie is a fun yet confusing psychological thriller with lots of twists and turns. It will keep you guessing till the very end, and even then you may not get it, like I don't. It is visually stunning, the cast gives a great performance, and you will never get bored. It's a suspenseful, mysterious brain teaser that you could discuss with your friends for hours and will most likely keep you thinking about it for a while. Must see.
