    The Bodyguard

    I thought I was lacking some kind of cultural knowledge since I hadn´t ever seen this movie before and people usually speak about it well. So, I decided to sit down, watch the film and enjoy that 90s classic. Over two hours later all I can say is: I want my time back!

    This love story is so amazingly dreadful, it´s amazing that I got through it. I don´t mind either Kevin Costner or Whitney Houston, but there was so…

    This is an incredible film. Now, I am not the one to start crying when watching a movie but I had tears streaming down my face. If you know Bollywood or not, you should check out this novie. It's like a mini- healing session. Also, SRK has no idea he took on this role.

    "Also die alkoholische Gärung - oder vielmehr die Gärung des Alkohols - sie erzeugt Alkohol - das heißt also, der Alkohol erzeugt Gärung - sogenannte alkoholische Gärung -"

    I can't recount the number of times I have seen this film. No matter how often I watch this film, it never loses it's fun, those brilliant one-liners and dialogues will always be hilarious, especially when a whole crowd is watching the film and every one speaks the lines along (aloud). A true classic of German cinema.

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

    I watched this movie a few days ago (it´s Jan 18 now) and I am still thinking about this film, it had such an impact on me. I won´t go into the topics of what the movie dealt with or muse why this film won over Citizen Kane at the Academy Awards, but will simply focus on Maureen O'Hara and Walter Pidgeon's characters.
    Their acting was so fantastic and their chemistry so intense that it was hard for me to…

    ★★★½

    Irene Dunne and Cary Grant are such an underrated screen couple. Anything they did together was just on point. Irene herself is just a gem. She just never fails to make me smile.

    Will I ever stop loving this crazy movie? No, never. I could watch this movie on an endless loop.

    ★★★

    With such an amazing cast that includes Deborah Kerr, Angela Lansbury, Janet Leigh and Walter Pidgeon, you could really have been more imaginative.

    ★★★½

    This film is such a strange cookie, but the more often you watch it, the more it grows on you. I am sure when I watch it a few more times, I´ll love it.

    This was the last film where we saw Archie Leach, the boy who was used to doing the things he did in the movie. In the next movie he´d be the sophisticated handsome devil with the distinctive voice, we love so much.

    Katharine Hepburn is good…

    This film is so underrated. I am serious. Where are the feminist fighters and everyone who is for equality among men and women? Why is this film not paraded everywhere, shown everywhere to educate people? This film is an A+ example of how showing how feminism in film is done right.

    The film is very sensitive when it comes to the subject, but nevertheless it doesn´t shy away from blatantly showing you how women are still treated by some men.…

    ★★★

    I have to say, I may not have finished the film at the best time of the night, it was rather at an ungodly hour when the end titles started rolling and I think this and my lack of sleep may be the reason why I still have this film in mind and why I feel the urge to write about it.

    My interest in this movie was triggered when I heard from various sources that this performance is one…

    ★★½

    I was interested in watching this film as it was the one, which allowed Natalie Wood to move from innocent roles where she was still regarded as a child to more mature roles. The theme and the plot line of the story sounded interesting, as well - something where you can really show off the depth of your acting talent.

    And I stick to the fact that the story is actually good. The supporting cast is very good, especially Ed…
