DIRECTOR Matthew Tabak

MY REVIEW
Movie is just ok but I like the ending.Jeff Goldblum is not the apt actor for the role.Anne Heche is also may not be the right actor. She is best for the roles like “six days seven nights”. The main characters are out of line with the roles. I feel sorry for her current girl friend who have to leave abruptly. This is just like a hindi drame but something I like in the ending which I cannot express

MY REVIEW

I like Michael Keaton and that is the reason why I decided to watch this movie. It is just an OK Movie. One time watch but Kelly Macdonald is cute. I can’t believe any one other that her in that Role. It is sometimes boring and sometimes movies. Watch if you can enjoy slow movies. Michael Keaton hat seems interesting.I love the way they complement and comfort each other. Their relationship is really beautiful

Director: Woody Allen
STARRING: Blue Jasmine ,Alec Baldwin,Sally Hawkins

MY REVIEW
There are so many layers of meaning. The characters are deep, not superficial and vacant like so many other films. May Woody Allen live forever!!!! Pure genius.Cate Blanchett was fabulous, but so were the others. She deserves an Oscar. Her transformation is fabulous. I never look into the directors when I see a movie. Now I see every one is talking about Woody Allen. Great work Woody Allen.

MY REVIEW
It s a television movie but it is one of the most beautiful movie I have seen. I came to know about the books Alex Haley and his book “Roots: The Saga of an American Family” from the movie. I learned about Steve Biko, South African anti-apartheid activist from this movie. This movie is made in a small frame but absolutely beautiful. It is so great that we end the world of Apartheid. It is must watch for kids.



This movie was so real i was too involved in my feelings at the end when the Ron Dellums was talking about the birds with different color living together. It was a true story that actually happened. I heard that Mahree Bok got killed working for Black people. I may be wrong too. Must watch though not a flamboyant movie.

STARRING
Lupita Amondi – One of my favourite actor from Qween of Kwatwe.
Chiwetel Ejiofor – Absolutely gret performance.

I learned a lot from the movie. I am in the assumption that all african americans are slave before american revolution. It actually depicts the pain of slavery. It is insult we have to face being a slave of another person. Must watch and one of my favourite all time.Slavey is one of the worst thing in history. I felt bad for black people who hard on them by evil people. I always respect to black people in my heart and wish racist never exist.

Directed by Jon Amiel
Starring
Richard Gere
Jodie Foster

MY REVIEW

Two of my favourite actors acting it. Judy Foster and Richard Gere. It is an amazing story. Story of a kind. More over it is taken beautifully. It is so romantic that we fell in love with both characters.Both managing to somehow convey the deepness of their mutual longing without ever having to hang from the chandeliers to prove it. Gere, in particular, demonstrates a maturity and confident sense of what it is about him that works best, while Foster, through her overt primness, conjures up an effective sense of the barely involved passions of the period.

MY REVIEW
One of the best movie I have seen. I loved the ending of this movie! Edward Norton deserves an oscar. This is the Somerset Maugham story!.You can’t blame man or woman.You can only accept the change that’s happening &move forward with it. It is life , you may end up in relationship. You are an human being. This is really a true story. This even depicts the sexual orientation of ordinary people
