One of the Landmarks toward Irish Tourism and Irish Communities abroad !! A Classic of its own Superiority
Comments pending.
**.5/****

Pro: Flynn! The broken bed. O'Hara. The fight sequence. Both reverends.

Con: Technicolor! Wayne actually makes walking to a mark as exciting as a yawn. Wayne's dialogue. Rear projection.


Ranking my Ford films:

1.Grapes of Wrath
2.Stagecoach
3.My Darling Clementine
4.Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
5.The Searchers
6.How Green Was My Valley
7.The Quiet Man
A TRULY GREAT CLASSIC, WITH JOHN FORD'S OUTSTANDING DIRECTION AMONG HIS BEST. CERTAINLY ONE OF JOHN WAYNE'S FIVE BEST PERFORMANCES. MAUREEN O'HARA IS PERFECTLY CAST AND IS A DELIGHT. VICTOR MC LAGLEN HEADS A FANTASTIC SUPPORTING CAST. IT'S FUN, ALWAYS A JOY TO WATCH.
Garden State was basically exactly just like a pilot episode for one of those shows. That pretty much sums it up. It looked exactly like those shows. It sounded exactly like those shows. The story was exactly like in those shows. And it was acted exactly like those shows are acted. I disliked much about how the characters were portayed and how they interacted, and Natalie Portman was seriously annoying. I disliked the cinematography, which wasn't any different from what it is in those shows. Same goes for dialogue. But the only thing that is actually important is that most of those shows are horrible and should be put to a quick end, but Garden State was like one of the rare better ones of those shows, and that's the important thing. So overall, it was good and honest, perfectly healthy and heartfelt entertainment. But not really anything more than that.

Bad Santa was good also. But could use more...something, I don't know, anything really, something to make it stick out from the mass. Wasn't the cinematography just the pinnacle of mediocrity? The best holiday movies have more something in them. Bad Santa was a tiny bit on the empty side. But just a tiny bit.

John Ford's The Quiet Man is a fun and lively romantic comedy set in Ireland, starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara.



I will say right off the bat I am not a John Wayne fan at all. The thing that really ruined this movie for me was the dvd box. I borrowed it from a friend and the entire movie synopsis is in detail on the box. I mean they pretty much so sum up the entire 130 minute movie in 3 paragraphs! There really are no twists and turns. I liked the directing in this film and the cinematography. I didn't mind John Wayne but I think there were better options then him. Overall I liked the story but the dvd box ruined this movie for me more then anything. So don't read it if you decide to rent it.
A true irish romance winner.
A former boxer returns to Ireland and
finds love.
John Ford's most loved film is not his best. One of the few films where John Wayne is not in a Wesern, but is fantastic like always.
Well, in an interesting turn of events, my roommate took a winter job in Yellowstone, so me without a second half of my rent decided to move back to Tampa with the fam and not have to pay any bills except grocery, cell and insurance. That means I'll be saving tons more money these coming months than planned. Sure, it's living with my parents again but it will pay off. I'll probably end up selling my car at the end of my stay also, before I head for Europe (hopefully get about 6k for it.)

Here's the breakdown of the roadtrip thus far:

-Camped in toe-numbing Idaho.
-Slept in Kennewick, Washington; drove along Columbia River Gorge and got severely wasted on Jameson Irish Whiskey.
-Camped in Gifford Pinchott park; explored Ice Caves and Natural Bridges.
-Slept 2 nights in Astoria, Oregon; Walked around town solo; Toured heritage museum and maritime museum; Visited the only current winery within 100 miles - Paul Van Der Veldt's acclaimed one-man operation was the highlight of my trip without a doubt. The man was charismatic in a curmudgeony sort of way and his wine was the most delicious thing my lips have ever met. I bought a bottle of his prized creation, Chocolate Orange... if things go right, that cork will be popped next year in Slovakia.
-Drove in shifts from Astoria to Lebanon, Missouri.

And that's where I am now. Oh, and that rating for WTC isn't a mistake... my most anticipated film of the year that I went out of my way to show enthusiasm for and it was complete garbage. I've got no clue what Stone was thinking, especially after the greatness of Alexander, Natural Born Killers, The Doors... etc.
