Сomments

I only got to watch a brief period of this on TV a week ago or so, and It really grabbed my attention, so I thought I would give it an other look and watch the hole thing... I give it, 10/10 Keep's your attention the hole way through!
A romantic movie with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. They had wonderful chemistry together. I love this movie and it never gets old. I have watched it a dozen times and always get tearful at the end. Good movie, always will be.


Today I have finally sat down and watched Misery, based on the Stephen King book about writer Paul Sheldon who is finishing his last misery novel and on his way too his publisher his car crashes in a snow storm, badly hurt he is rescued by his number one fan but when he realises she is a complete nutjob and with that we get a very cool and suspensful film.

Misery is a film that I kept looking at and thinking you know what it's not gonna be my type of film so for many years I past up the chance to watch it and finally I said fuck it I'm gonna give it a chance and I'm glad I finally did cause this is a great film and one of the better Stephen King film adaptations.

The acting is brilliant, Kathy Bates is great as Annie Wilkes and she is at her best with this crazy performance, she goes too new depths of insanity and it makes for a very creepy role, James Caan is great here too, for a guy who spends the whole film in a wheelchair and in bed he can still act and show so much emotion, Lauren Becall has a much smaller role in this film but she does bring something to this production, Richard Farnsworth brings a more sweet side to this film as the nice sheriff McCain a sweet old man who is only doing his job and lasty Frances Sternhagen is good as his wife and has a few funny lines and keeps him on his feet.

I have never read Misery so I don't know how similar the book and film are but hopefully since this film got showered with such good reviews that it followed the book pretty closely, still I think out of the King films I've seen this its one of the better ones and up there with Stnad By Me.

This movie has some seriously creepy scenes, everytime Kathy Bates is on screen I felt like I was scared to be in her presence and she really scared the crap out of me with this performance.

Misery isn't that violent but it still has some good scenes of torture with one scene of a ritual called a hobbling where you put a piece of wood between someones ankles and proceed to sledgehammer there feet so they can't escape and this scene had me shocked when they actually showed one of the feet snapping and bending, a truely shocking sequence.

Lastly Misery is a great film, with some fantastic performances from the leads and with its mix of comedy and dark twisted suspense it makes for a good horror film and one of the much better King films, highly recommended.
They say this is a romanance, which yes it did have its share of romantics, (expeshally that potery scene, woooo) But I don' think its totally romantic. My favorate Line in this is not, "Diddo." insted its "You're Dead Really."
This stars the uber-buff Patrick Swayzek, Demi Moore & Whoopi Goldberg in her academy award winning role.
I'm ready to go see that hunk Superman again. But these flicks were all quite enjoyable, especially Jurassic Park. Goldblum and Vaughn in the late 90s? Tall, dark, sexy, and funny. Made the whole thing very enjoyable. And the T-rex mommy and daddy, of course.
"World Trade Center" is one of the worst movies I've seen this year not simply because it was boring, horribly written, poorly constructed, and was full of uninvolving cheesy moments, but because it did these things with a subject that had no room for error. If you're going to make a movie about the World Trade Center disaster only 5 years after it happened, you'd better make damn sure that you don't screw it up. Take United 93-- it was a lean, well-oiled machine of a film, void of cliche and very well written and directed. "World Trade Center" is a wreck in all these areas. If this movie weren't about such a sensitive topic, it might even be worse, simply because I feel like the only thing which carried this film was its subject matter. There are so many ridiculous, laughable moments that I wanted to get up and leave. I need to remind you that I went into this film with a very serious expectation-- it took a lot of shit to get me to laugh at 9/11, and it hurts to do it, but this film really took the cake on making a joke out of a horrible tragedy. What a waste.

"Ghost" didn't live up to its expectations for me, but it was still a decent film. Some aspects of the plot were expected and cliched, but for the most part it's quite a unique concept. Whoopi's performance is great, and the others all carry their weight. It starts out a little stupid, but after he dies things start to pick up and the film becomes greatly interesting. The only thing holding this movie back from greatness are several cheesy moments and a recycled bad guy/good guy plotline. Engaging, but could have been more seemless. Entertaining, at the very least.
Ghost shows love that transcends death. Chemistry between Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze is incredible. The way they look at one another is sexier than any of those graphic love scenes. They make real romantic connection through their eyes. Ghost not only has wonderful, likeable character in Sam Wheat, Molly Jensen, and Oda Mae Brown, but it has engrossing plot that movies right along. Entwined in all this is a beautiful score.


Tagline:

Before Sam was murdered he told Molly he'd love and protect her forever.

Plot:

Sam (Patrick Swayze) and Molly (Demi Moore) are lovers; but unfortunately their love is cut short when Sam is mugged. However, Sam still remains as a ghost and learns to his horror that he was murdered and the next target is Molly. He uses the help of a psychic (Whoopi Goldberg) to try and save her...

Plus:

A touching as well as thrilling screenplay. The acting is also excellent and the ending will surely leave you in tears.

Minus:

Ignorant people who think this is a thriller (rather than a romantic movie) might find the twists predictable

Overall:

I've put off seeing this movie for so much time that I feel guilty. Don't make the same mistake as me. Two thumbs up, way up! :up: :up:

Rated PG-13 (for sensuality, some strong language and violence).
Running time approximately 2 hours 8 minutes.


Goldberg is brilliant in a touching and spellbinding film.

I remember seeing bits and pieces of this film when I was younger, but never got around to finishing it. My roommate Chad has it in his collection. I've looked through his movies dozens of times and I hadn't seen it there until a few days ago. Well, the point is this: I watched it, I loved it, and here's the review. Whoopi Goldberg deserved her Oscar for this film. I think it's her best performance, period. I love her. The story, while a bit goofy at times, is wonderfully told and there are three scenes that got my tears flowing. I really liked it. ***1/2 (out of ****) A-

Box Office: 12 OW/ 217 Total

While at Best Buy, out of depression, walked by some movies with my Mika CD in hand an I passed by Ghost, SE, for 12 bucks.. why not? I said. I heard a few good things about Ghost but I really didn't know THAT much about this film. Then I searched it up on Boxoffice Mojo, and I saw its domectic Box Office, 217 million dollars, just domestic. I thought, maybe max 150.. I knew it as a hit but I didnt know how big of a blockbuster it was. Wow. Just, threw me off my chair. Like , how could a film like this, why would a little fantasy romantc, comedy, crime thriller with stars that arent Box Office draws exactly become such big hits. Surprisingly relly. Onto the film. I am not a fan of anyone in this film, except for Whoopi Goldburg who is a female comedic legend. Another I didn't know, this film was nominated for about 6 Oscars, won two. This is were she won her gold.. deservedly so. She was absolutely hilarious in this film from start to finish, comedic genius. Loved her in this role. Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze aren't my favourites but they'll do. They both start off rough, until it reaches one of the most famous cinematic love scenes ever and its about 2 minutes long, not even but man is it powerful. Then the film gets a little soggy until its second hour, I compare it to when you put crackers in your soup but you left them in their WAY to long, ya its kind of like that. It REALLY picks up in its second hour with a lot more character development, some truly hilarious scene,es it kind of ditches the love aspect so Sam learns the 411 about being and staying a Ghost, he learns about his death and then its just a great thriller from their on out. It has a perfect, perfect ending that stayed the way it should. I still dont see how it made over 200 mill,but great succes for this small little fantasy, romcom, crime thriller.. that is a lot of fun.
