Ok....watching Isabelle Huppert is generally a fun way to spend 100 minutes......but not this time. This French movie is very slowly paced....and most of the scenes deal with people sharing their thoughts. It is like being in a Philosophy class.....only you get nothing out of it. Movie really does not cover much ground. This is a disappointing movie.
Why I watched this one? Free from my local library.
What is this one about? An artist falls for a young married woman while he's commissioned to paint her portrait during the Tulip mania of 17th century Amsterdam.
My thoughts on this one? For a movie about tulips this has some decent twist and turns. It also has some solid performances throughout the movie. Movie has some nice moments of comedy as well. So in the end...this was a surprisingly entertaining movie.
Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio). Movie depicts his rise and fall in the powerful world of Wall Street. Be prepared to go one one crazy and mind boggling ride. The life of Jordan is filled with drugs, crime, sex and most importantly greed. He makes Michael Douglas' Gordon Gekko from Wall Street look like a saint.
The performances in this movie are very impressive. DiCaprio's performance will be remembered for a very long time...I used…
I have watched Predator many many times. I have seen it in theaters. I have seen it on VHS. I have seen it on laserdisc. I have seen it on DVD. I have seen it on Blu-Ray. I now have seen it in 3D...damn I sound like Dr. Seuss.
As for the movie....this is one of the greatest action movies ever...right there with the original Die Hard movie! Arnold Schwarzenegger and his buddies go into the jungle for a rescue…
