My favorite 150 movies of all-time!
I will update this list constantly.
I have not seen many movies that are…
Men of Honor
History is made by those who break the rules.
Against formidable odds -- and an old-school diving instructor embittered by the U.S. Navy's new, less prejudicial policies -- Carl Brashear sets his sights on becoming the Navy's first African-American master diver in this uplifting true story. Their relationship starts out on the rocks, but fate ultimately conspires to bring the men together into a setting of mutual respect, triumph and honor.
I want to thank my cousin for recommending me this movie. It's really good. It started out on a farm with black people, and I though it was going to be the usual black race rights shite or whatever, but I was happily surprised. It's actually a really touching story about a Navy diver, the first black diver in fact, Carl Brashear. Cuba Gooding, Jr. is fantastic, his best performance. Robert DeNiro is pretty great too. The female performances are a bit weaker, but Men of Honor is still a really great and important movie.
Quite enjoyable, even if it has the look of a 1990's TV movie and is a rather old fashioned biopic. Cuba Gooding Jr and Robert De Niro are both good in this, but neither are excellent, perhaps due to a slightly lacklustre script. Considering the real life story on which it is based is quite amazing, it is a shame they did not do anything that new or interesting with it.
On a side note, the female supporting characters (the wives of De Niro and Gooding) are very clichéd and are mostly irrelevant. It could have been interesting to see more of how the hardships these men faced affected their personal lives.
Decent enough, but not amazing.
After showing some remarkable skill in “Boyz N the Hood” and “Jerry Maguire,” Cuba Gooding, Jr. delivers the best work in his young career in this riveting, hugely entertaining drama. He’s a bullheaded blaze of talent with dreams of becoming the best U.S. Navy diver in history.
This true story features Robert DeNiro in his most satisfying performance in years, and the two actors, in their best moments, chew up the celluloid and you are enthralled by their charisma and energy.
A heartfelt, inspiring story, “Men of Honor” is a great movie-going experience.
Such a great story, based loosely on a true story, and one that makes me cry several times. Cuba Gooding Jr. and Robert De Niro are both excellent, and Charlize Theron has a good supporting role, too.
The last great Robert DeNiro performance in my opinion. Sure, he was pretty good in Silver Linings Playbook, but he's on another level here. I love the dynamics between him and Cuba Gooding Jr. and the climax of the film still stand the hairs on the back of my neck.
Really, quite brilliant. The stuff about how the Navy is so awesome made me roll my eyes at times, but both Robert De Niro and Cuba Gooding, Jr. easily made me disregard this right after. Pretty fucking awesome scenes from both men, especially when they were both in it.
Hal Holbrook as the commanding officer with amaxophobia was really good. He was a damn good antagonist, it's a shame he wasn't around during the second half of the movie.
Alta pelicula, extremadamente inspiradora, no se cuantas veces la vi ya, pero siempre es igual de increible.
- Texto em Português:
Filmes que retratam superação são sempre bem vindos. Aprendemos muito e ganhamos força para enfrentar justamente aquilo que nós mesmos procuramos em nossas vidas.
"Men of Honor" retrata a história verdadeira de Carl Brashear, um homem negro americano, de família humilde, com origem na área rural. Sob cobranças do pai para que procure ascensão na vida, Carl se alista na Marinha dos Estados Unidos e assim começa uma vida de vitórias, derrotas e superações; mas acima de tudo, com muita honra.
Naquela época, meados de 1950, o preconceito quanto à cor da pele estava em alta e superava o valor do caráter. Cuba Gooding Jr. retrata de maneira brilhante a emoção e frieza que homens, como…
Not too bad, but it's another movie made for the sole purpose of winning awards and hearts...
Men of Honor is a very good drama with interesting story and good acting.
An inspiring story, Men of Honor had great writing and some really cool suspenseful scenes. The film's underwater scenes were great but the film suffered from a lead that didn't always bring his A game. Robert DeNiro was great but Charlize Theron's role was annoying. So Cuba Gooding Jr., take this note, stick to the comedic supporting roles!
De Niro plays like a robot - too much patriotic shit and the wrong actors!
Carl Brashear: Forgive me sir, but to me, the Navy isn't a business. It's an organization of people who represent the finest aspects of our nation. We have many traditions. In my career, I have encountered most of them. Some are good, some not so good. I would, however not be here today were it not for our greatest tradition of all.
Captain Hanks: And what would that be, Chief Brashear?"
Carl Brashear: " Honor, sir"
Penso que este excerto do filme diz tudo!!!
Great film which i have seen before and can still enjoy today. C G Junior is just phenomenal in his role and De Niro offers him an amazing opposite....

An on-going collection of the worst films ever made. Even the ones that are so fucking bad, they're not worthy…
A film is always improved by a helicopter explosion. Here are all the films I know of with at least…
