The Best Christmas Movie Ever

In reality it is not about George’s redemption at all it is about our personal redemption. George Bailey was the suffering servant of Bedford Falls a Christ figure he doesn’t require redemption.

Leon – A Review

A wonderfully made film, it grips the heart of the audience. A story that seems a little silly develops beautifully at the hands of Natalie Portman and Jean Reno. A story of danger and drama yet it never can be called merely an action film.

A Romantic Comedy That Works With a Couple of 60+ Senior Citizens

Something’s Gotta Give is a romantic comedy without substance that works because of Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton. Keaton is one the few actresses at age 60 who has been able to partner with bankable leading men. I found myself wanting to bond with Keaton. She seems to have found the secret to staying young, alive and attractive while Nicholson at 69 and counting appears his age and has not benefited from the passage of time. Keaton is one fine looking 60-year-old woman.

The Godfather – Review

Often a film is made to fit a genre but it is rare that a film defines the criterion of a genre. ‘The Godfather’ is one such gem of a movie that defined another genre of its time, ‘gangster movies’. The film was released in 1972 and bagged ten Academy Award nominations and was named the ‘Best Picture’. Since that time, all gangster movies has been compared with this one, an unfair comparison as it may seem to be.

Whatever Happened to Helen Hunt After Making What Women Want?

What Women Want is a romantic comedy light enough to float away. Helen Hunt is a real talent with real hardware and seemed so on top of her game after the release of What Women Want in 2000. Heck, I figured, move over Julia Roberts and hello Helen Hunt as America’s newest sweetheart, but Hunt did Cast Away with Tom Hanks and then returned to Broadway. Big screen’s loss became Broadway’s gain. I believe that the two rising stars today are Reese Witherspoon and Hilary Swank.

Get Your Kids To Watch The Greatest American Movie

It would not be an exaggeration, if I say that Casablanca, America’s most loved movie has more content written about it than any other motion picture in the whole world. There have been legends and rumours with the making of the film as well as the finished product.

TV’s 2006 Fall Season Failures – Why Did They Fail?

If our last article we showed what had happened with the new releases of the Fall season. What was surviving, and what had fallen by the wayside. Now we are going to examine in depth the failures and try to analyze why they failed, and why the networks cancelled or pushed these shows to dead airtime slots.

Pulp Fiction – Review

If you have impressed the audience with a movie once, then what you have done is allowed invariably high expectation towards your other movies by the same audience. This can prove dangerous for your reputation that you built with such difficulty. Quentin Tarantino must have been aware of this to have managed the most dreaded. He improved upon his earlier film showing that extraordinary is possible when talent reaches its apex.

Nativity Story: The Still Small Voice

The Nativity Story, a New Line Cinema release by director Catherine Hardwicke, avoids drowning out the “still small voice” of the divine in a pyrotechnic display of Hollywood glitz, creative imagination, and a Cecille B. DeMille-style biblical epic. Taking its cue from the Nativity itself, that understatement is a better way to emphasize what is truly significant, a troop of little-known actors recreate the world’s best-known story. Here’s what is great and not so great about the movie, and what you can do to conduct your own Nativity investigation.

Will Network Television Eventually Become Entirely Pay Per View

As television watchers – we are NO longer loyal to the big three brands. Cable proved that. So now, will the networks have to pick their battles on a pay per view basis?

Who is Watching Whom? Point of View and Loss of Control in “It Came From Outer Space”

Certain cinematic processes such as 3-D more actively involve movie viewers. When such filming and projection techniques are combined with the subjective point of view, viewers may feel that they are not only participants but in control of the characters. In Jack Arnold’s 1953 film IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE, viewers are given control over the earthlings because the point of view when they confront the aliens is from the aliens’ point of view. With earthlings as their doubles on the screen, viewers are able to recognize their own fear of loss of control; when they view the earthlings from the aliens’ perspective, however, they are able to determine the significance of this loss.

Top Movie Download Sites

The concept of downloading movies is not a new one. Fact is, the technology to stream or download movies has only become viable in the last year or so with many households adopting broadband or cable connection.

DVD Rentals in India

Watch movies with original prints, sound quality and comforts by getting online DVD rental services in India. When we talk about entertainment, movies and songs come as the first choice in the mind of many.

Forrest Gump Review

The movie also weaves the story of his love with his childhood pal Jenny. She could have been a normal kid only if wasn’t for her abusive father. She becomes a hippie but continues to write to him. He comes back and meets her, takes care of her. They share some of the sweetest moments together. Whether it’s Jenny, his momma or his war buddy Bubba, he loves all of them purely with his heart. A movie worth shedding your tears for.

The Natural – Review

An outstanding baseball movie set in 1939. The inspiring plot features a last place team which is suddenly transformed into a contender when Roy Hobbs suddenly arrives. His promising career was ruined by a shooting at the hands of a woman but he is determined not to let his baseball dream die. His middle age still possesses the unfathomable hitting talent of his youth at that time. After winning over a match he is there to turn the game towards victory for the New York Knights. After great team effort and aided victorious performances by coach Red, what become of the match is a great game for the players and the viewers alike.
