A little sappy, but accurate.
The feel the movie gives you sort of an idea what that game meant at the time. The game sequences were very well shot and they pretty much place you on the ice with the players. I'd have to say that the movie was entertaining but a bit sugar coated, as any movie of this kind would be. Nice movie to watch even if you don't know much about hockey, but don't go in to watch the movie expecting a lot from it, it is very predictable; even if you don't know anything about the history of this particular game.
The Matrix Reloaded (2003)
I 'Believe' in the flat ending
While I agree that the action sequences and the fights were very elaborate (and I congratulate the writers and directors on such an achievement), and the movie is really fast paced and heart pounding, I dissagree that this was a very good movie.
The story did not have the final incredible twist where all the 'truth' is revealed as many expected.
Many will come up with theories and many more with definitive answers but I BELIEVE (and this is a key word in this movie) that the story and the ending of both Reloaded and Revolutions were as flat as The Poseidon Adventure.
Go see it for the fights and the battle but don't expect much explanations out of it. Oh, and prepare yourself for severe amounts of fromage.
Final Flight of the Osiris (2003)
Important plot segment to see before Reloaded.
It is important for all those who want to get a better understanding of what is going on in The Matrix Reloaded that you see this short film. Some might criticize it as being of poor quality animation, which is in part true, but it is worth watching since it's only like 15 minutes long.
But the animation part is really not important. The small amount of information it provides is not crucial to the plot of Reloaded, but it might clear up a few points when you actually go see The Matrix Reloaded. Otherwise, i liked it, i gave it a 9/10.
The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
This movie is excellent. It really makes you feel good. It's about hope, the fight for life and most of all, poetical justice. Excellent performances by the cast, visually stunning and has a great deal of realism in it. I totally recommend it. A+
Gojira ni-sen mireniamu (1999)
Oh no! Godzilla is back!
This is japanese cinema at its best. It has all the classic elements, plus a shapeshifting alien spacecraft/organism. The battles are brutal and godzilla is as powerful as ever. I would really recommend watching this movie because it's a perfect example of the genre.
Introduces many things... but was it worth the time?
It is safe to say that not more than 10.000 people around the world remember ever watching this television special, so if you have, consider yourself... lucky?.
I wasn't even born when it was first aired in 1978 (which by the way was the only time it was ever shown on TV), a year after the first Star Wars movie. Sources say that this movie was never shown again on national television and not many copies are still around.
I got a chance to see it at a private screening a few days ago and I just had to comment on it. In my opinion, the only part of the movie that was worth seeing was the short cartoon watched by Lumpy (the son of Chewbacca).
It introduces us to Boba Fett and the top hatch of the Millennium Falcon. Indeed the cartoon is quite interesting and a must-see for any star wars fan. But the rest of the movie is terrible, considering that all the cast of Star Wars stars on it, including a short appearance of Darth Vader, and a singing Princess Leia.
Considering the rareness of this movie and its historical importance, I would almost recommend watching it. It is certainly amusing and a good way to kill a couple of hours, though you may want to fast forward some of it since the appearances of Diahann Carroll and The Jefferson Starship are very long and, in my opinion, boring.
Bottom line, 3 out of 10, being 10 the highest mark; and that's because it's a Christmas special. Translation: didn't like it.
