    probably the worst depiction of cancer, basically only using it as a subject to evoke a reaction from the audience that isn't an emotional one, but more like a forced one.
    but am i going to turn it off when it's playing on tv for free??
    probably not

    Nick Cassavetes, is the director of The Notebook .
    Just putting that out there.

    This film is a very sentimental affair, with lots of tears and long scenes of people frolicking on beaches in slow motion with a soft lens filter and an indie ballad playing in the background.

    The premise is very compelling: a girl who was basically "harvested for spare parts" wants to gain medical emancipation from her parents.
    Basically, the only reason her parents had her, was…

    I'm not exaggerating when I say that this is the worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life. When I say that, I am not counting movies that are so bad they're good, like The Room (which I happen to own, it's so good)
    Sometimes, there are movies that are just so transcendentally bad, they really should be enjoyable just by the sheer scale of incompetence on display, but for some reason, something about them is just so…

    A drama that based on a strong ethical dilemma, marred by daft sentimentality, as teen girl sues mother because she was conceived in order to donate tissues and organs to her older leukemic sister. Cue abundant montages and flashbacks set to soulful music, but the fact is better writing and direction could have made this a powerhouse drama. The courtroom scenes are a joke, for instance, despite a good turn from Joan Cusack as the judge. The film ends up…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I've made mention in the past of despising films that play the audience for sentimental reasons with contrived and forced dramatics. The worst kinds of these films are the tearjerkers that play your emotions like a harp and expect you to feel sorry for the characters, not because you identify with them or with the actors portraying them, but because the actions themselves are so sad and depressing that it's only your natural human instinct to feel sympathy. While other…

    The film I consider to be the saddest ever made, that one film being none other than Akira Kurosawa's Ikiru, is about cancer. But there's something bad about making a film with that subject - films can use only the fact they're about cancer to manipulate the audience into crying without placing genuine emotion. And speaking of which, this may just as well be the worst offender in that category that I've seen. My Sister's Keeper is Extremely Loud & Incredibly…

    A grounded and fierce performance from Diaz, with Breslin providing a strong lead. It is not an easy film to watch, or an easy subject, but it is a return to fine form from Diaz.

    After watching this movie I wasn't sure how to react. Emotional, sad, but at the moments even funny - all that in a movie with a grim story! People criticizing this movie are too harsh, it's hard to make a good movie with such a sensitive subject and sad result! I'll recommend it...
