All the films from all the editions, including those subsequently removed, presently totalling 1177. An easy way of seeing how…
A journey through understanding and fellowship.
Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt's father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie; they travel cross-country.
One of the best road trip films ever made. Tom Cruise + Dustin Hoffman = perfection.
God-DAMN it Cruise! You had a golden ticket! You had a golden chance to make your way! And you fucked it up! YOU FUCKED IT UP! You could have been the next Redford but instead you decided you were going to devote your life to believing in an evil space overlord that trapped a bunch of alien souls in a prehistoric volcano. And thetans. Next thing you know, you're jumping up and down on the Oprah show, denouncing the entire mental health profession. Now you're a one-man definition of irony. Good job there Maverick!
Review In A Nutshell:
Rain Man does not convey themes or a narrative of grand significance, it does not disintegrate the barriers towards mental illness, nor does it innovate the medium, it exists simply in its desire to deliver an intimate narrative, one that strikes those that allow their guards to be lowered, to witness the changing moulds of its leading characters, a relationship that endures through trials and glories, a development that allows itself to be validated. Initially Rain Man may not seem as penetrating as it could be, but never for a moment does it strike a dull chord, constantly interacting and radiating an effect on its audience, it never lazily stamps itself with crowd-pleasing sensibilities but instead…
"He's capable of a lot more than you know!"
One of my favorite films of all time. The way that this film brings out the true meaning and reality of a man and his brother who has autism. A truly emotional film that gets me so into it, that I cry every time that I watch it. Some of the reasons why I think so highly of this film, is that I have personal experience. With my sister having autism, I feel that I am able to truly capture and get into the brilliance and mastermind designed in this cinema. I could not critic this picture in any other way. One way that this film was able to do so…
I hate Tom Cruise.
I now want to buy this movie starring Tom Cruise on DVD.
Happy Birthday Tom Cruise, and what better way to celebrate it by watching this awesome gem.
Cruise along with Hoffman gave unbelievable chemistry, the story was heartwarming, things tied up nicely, and it does a good job on diving on the issues of dealing with someone that has Autism.
A great Best Picture win right here.
Buenas actuaciones, buena química y unos personajes interesantes que se ven envueltos en situaciones bastante entretenidas y en general película para oscars y totalmente conservadora, lo cual hace que no sea totalmente entretenida.
Not a huge fan of "disabled person teaches able person meaning of life"-narratives. Love Dustin Hoffman though. He's a good guy.
I feel like I've seen most of this movie just by how much it has been talked about or referenced in so many other things.
But to finally actually watch it was neat.
I don't know why it took so long. I'm usually all over anything starring American legend and all around great guy Tom Cruise.
He's great in this. Hoffman is of course great as well, turning in one hell of a performance.
It's really both of them together that really make it worth watching.
There are some laughs and also some sadness.
Just two great actors really at the top of their game, here.
Kein schlechter Film, auch wenn er mir ein bisschen zu lange war. Muss ich auch nicht nochmal sehen, auch wenn ihn ganz nett fand. Kenne auch übrigens kein von den alten Tom Cruise Filmen, möchte aber jetzt in Zukunft immer mal wieder einen nachholen.
I found myself lost in Dustin Hoffman's brilliant performance and powerful dialogue despite some pacing issues.
how to be a feminist challenge: #20 a movie with mostly/entirely a primary colour on the poster
i replayed the bathroom scene 5 times and i might have cried each time
Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise are killing it in Rain Man right? Accompany that with directing from Barry Levinson and a Hans Zimmer score and you have one great, great film.
I'm still so baffled how much Tom Cruise changed as an actor, in this period of films he looks like a legend. Dustin Hoffman is always great and this might be one of his best performances. Valeria Golino looked epic.
For me there was also something between Hoffman and Cruise, some kind of chemistry. I really loved it. I was also amazed at how Cruise won me over near the end. Hated his character in the beginning.
Rain Man might be one of Barry Levinson's best films and a must watch for every film fan.
Ps. Rain Man also taught me a valuable lesson, K-Mart Sucks.
There must be a book or article or documentary somewhere where Dustin Hoffman talks about how he got into character for this film. I'd like to see it.
No doubt one of my favorite movies
I dont know why i didnt watch it untill now
But i really loved it its deserve all the oscars he got
Complete list. :-(
