The Great Alone
Deb
Powerful and beautifully filmed

This documentary inspired me and touched me deeply. About the only thing I have in common with Iditarod racers is that I love dogs. After watching this true story about Lance Mackey I have become a fan not only of Lance but of Iditarod. Something about Lance's humble and genuine nature and the struggles he has endured moved me to my core. Iditarod, it turns out, is about much more than racing dogs over 1000 miles. It is about overcoming a grueling environment and personal demons, it is about beauty and it is about the deep bond between man and man's best friend. I watched ...

Mr. Holmes
Maggie
Enjoyable 90 minutes

We really enjoyed this movie. Great acting, great story. The description of the movie is not entirely correct as it makes it sounds like Mr Holmes is revisiting an old case but it isn't really like that. There are great personalities and relationships. I watched this with my husband and we both enjoyed it.

Interstellar

"Interstellar" is an Outstanding Science Fiction and Adventure Movie, with an Intelligent and Engaging Plot, and a Superb Cast

The Paramount Pictures movie entitled "Interstellar" is an epic science fiction and adventure movie featuring an absolutely fabulous cast, as well as a premise that is intelligent, captivating, thought-provoking, and inspirational. It begins with a dystopian and devolving planet earth, which is rapidly entering a death spiral, and it subsequently examines the quest for locating a habitable planet to which the human race can be relocated. The science fiction elements of this picture involve a rather imaginative depiction of space travel, time dimensions, and the concept of relativity. It also examines fundamental themes such as family, friendship, determination, survival, and the spirit of exploration and discovery. Although it is ...

Search for Johnny Gosch... the boy from the milk cartons missing picture

I heard about this case years ago in a true crime book (I think by J. Walsh). I recently was reminded as I heard a Coast to Coast show with the host from Darkness Radio interviewing the filmmakers and Noreen Gosch. It was a really interesting show. I told my Wife about it and then we stumbled onto the film here on Amazon Prime and decided to watch it.First off my heart and Prayers go out to the Gosch Family especially Noreen Gosch who is exceptionally tough and brave for her Son even after all these years. Unfortunately the film wasn't what I expected. ...

Terminator: Genisys

Some good, lots of bad - casting, acting, storyline, etc.

Spoilers included: There were parts that were interesting, and there were the parts that just about took the movie down. It truly helped that it was free with Prime, I would have been very unhappy to have paid for it.Casting and character development (or lack thereof) - HORRIBLE! The characters of Sarah, Kyle and John completely missed the mark. Sarah was bad ass even in the first movie as she learned what she could do when necessary. This Sarah was tepid and uninspired. Kyle was a soldier first and foremost, not a love-sick puppy following along after Sarah as he did in this movie. John is referred to in ...

Poverty, Inc.
Marmot Ridge
Quick, hit-and-run compassion, maybe much more damaging than we know

All is not good in the world and especially in the world where the west is supposedly lifting, supporting and helping the "3rd world" folks. As Poverty Inc. repeats often the west started out with good and compassionate intentions, to give and help the very, very destitute in Haiti, Africa and elsewhere. Yet destitution persists.Why?Maybe we in the west are doing things for ourselves, to salve our conscience or to do something quick and move on. The real reason destitution persists is that dumping worldly goods on others does not solve their long-term issue that the systems in their own countries persist in keeping the foot on their necks.I ...

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
Obi Wan
Leaves you hungry for more

This movie really got the franchise back on track for me.The beauty of the first Hunger Games movie was the embedded commentary about oppressive government and rule by the few. It was brilliant in this regard (as well as being an awesome action movie)The second installment was just an action movie and got away from the whole point. I felt it lacked purpose.Mockingjay Part1 brings the social commentary back to the forefront, possibly stronger than even the first film did. In this movie Catniss Everdeen sees what happens in the next step as dissatisfaction blooms into full fledged rebellion. And she gets to witness first hand how diry a ...

Hot Pursuit
Wuchak
Fun, but thrown-together Caribbean comedy with a young John Cusack

Released to 1987, “Hot Pursuit” is a youth misadventure/comedy starring John Cusack as a teen who is unable to go to the Caribbean with his girlfriend (Wendy Gazelle) & her family, but follows shortly thereafter, which leads to a string of misadventures. A youthful Ben Stiller and his dad are on hand as possible shady characters. Shelley Fabares plays the girlfriend’s mother while Keith David plays an easy-going island dude.This is a likable teen comedy, but it seems thrown together. For instance, the protagonist’s run-in with a trio of black islanders comes out of nowhere and leaves just as awkwardly with no tie-in to the main story. Still, if ...

Saving Private Ryan
Phil Historian
The best World War II movie

I am absolutely crazy about World War II, especially the Western European theatre. I have a particular interest in D-Day and the Normandy Campaign, and so Saving Private Ryan appealed to me. The first 20 minutes depicting the Omaha Beach landings were among the most graphic and intense pieces of film I have ever seen. I enjoyed the rest of the movie, although there was only one major battle scene after the D-Day clip.I wish this film had shown more from the German point of view, but few World War II movies do.

Great sports movie the whole family can enjoy!

Love, love loved this movie. It is so hard to find a movie you can watch with kids and grandparents alike. This movie has no profanity, voilence or sex AND the story is inspirational. The movie has a great buildup. Even though we knew the ending before watching it (knowing Pele's history), we couldn't helped but be swepted away.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Rogue hard, but not put up wet...

I didn't think it was possible to make another "Impossible" movie that was really worth watching, but apparently their latest mission was a success. The movie was just plain fun from start to finish, with all the humor, action, and special effects we've come to expect from this series. Not the deepest plot, but an interesting-enough storyline, benefiting mostly from the array of colorful characters whose dialogue and antics make this movie a fun ride. To my recollection, there were no dead spots, either, as there was a constant flow of "Oh, wow..." going on. If they manage to keep this "Cruise-ship" going, I may not be as jaded ...

The Champions
G. Teslovich
Not Quite the Truth

They were called Fatheads for a reason in this film; a euphemism for the crushing power of their large head and neck muscles. Pit bulls and Rottweilers have been genetically bred over centuries to possess guarding, herding and protection instincts. Bred to show an emotional fear response to new, out of place, potential threats. In an urban environment those threats are continual which is why the dogs are often securely isolated or otherwise safely reside in rural areas.The film emphasizes saving these dogs, with extensive training, where possible. Unfortunately, they minimized the (if not outright distorted the statistics) dangers inherent in these breeds. They roughly state that between 2000-2009 ...

Not a Bad Movie

I know a lot of people didn't like this movie. I like the Transformer movies. I think when you sit down to watch a movie like this you have to realize you are not sitting down to watch, Citizen Kane. You have to take it for what it is. It has some great actors in it and they do a pretty good job. There is a lot of action (predictable not) and there is so really funny stuff in it. The CGI is awesome, as usual. I don't think any of the movies in the Transformers franchise have lived up to the first one, but I still like ...

I Am Better For Having Watched This Film

It's so amazing to watch the creative process of, to peek into the mind of, and to get a taste of the greatness that is Rickie Lee Jones. In our time, few women (men OR women) have contributed as much beauty combined with intellect. This film is about her vision which, you start to realize, is a piece of us all. She has this magical ability to make family of her listeners and to weave us intimately into each of her songs; you feel she is singing to you directly. She connects people to one another. I loved this film and even if you don't really know her, you ...
