Thanks for writing, fanboy123. I liked Interstellar, but calling it one of the greatest movies EVER MADE (really? Up there with Citizen Kane, Modern Times, The Seventh Seal, Rashomon, The Maltese Falcon, etc.?) makes me believe your viewing habits are mostly limited to films released in the last 20 or so years. And explain to me how comparing movies from the same genre is "sensationaliz(ing) the topic"?
You have to be kidding me. Interstellar was one of the greatest movies ever made and yet you say it is worse than both The Martian and Gravity even though the scope of the movie is enormous. The films cover entirely different topics, but yet you seem to wish to sensationalize the topic at hand, which is whether The Martian is a good movie. I liked all of the movies, but Interstellar is by far the best without a shadow of a doubt. Even if you don't agree with me, the movies are not comparable. You are truly a delusional writer.
Great movie. As a Baby Boomer, I hope live long enough to see a Mars landing.

I enjoyed the movie but the book was much better. Most of the casting was very good except for Jessica Chastain. She was weak and boring in this role.
On ENTOURAGE, I never understood how Adrian Grenier and Kevin Connolly ever had a career in Hollywood.. To describe them as medicore actors insults mediocrity. It was painful to watch...
I saw Murder, My Sweet when I was a teenager.. I only knew Dick Powell as a song and dance man before this.. I discovered later he was a shrewd business man who along with Charles Boyer, David Niven and Ida Lupino started Four Star Productions which was responsible for a lot of successful series in late 50's and 60's.. Burke's Law, The Rifleman, The Rogues, Big Valley and Dick Powell Theater.
In real life Powell was a compulsive womanizer, a major alcoholic and huge right wing nutbag in same league as John Wayne, whom he directed in the piece of shit "The Conqueror"... Powell contracted Cancer like everyone else did on that film and passed away in 1964...
I loved the documentary about Cannon Films... To be politically incorrect for a moment.. They were not shrewd Israeli film makers, they were almost stereo typical money grubbing Jews. Mel Gibson refused to have anything to do with them in early 80's which was a true story..
I also loved that little dig the producers of the documentary made saying how Golan/Globus never attended lavish Hollywood parties.. The real reason being they were never, never invited and no one wanted any association with them.
At least we
silly liar-the twist is clever-no one sees it coming-good, creepy film
Well, at least you all have good taste then ;-)
Most of MNS's movies are huge disappointments, the trailer cutter's should be put in jail. But thought this was pretty good. What was your opinion of 'Devil'?
Thanks for writing, MaxAction. Of course, we ALL care what YOU think. :)
Your review of this movie, and your assessment of the New England Patriots, are both wrong. But, no one cares what you think, anyhow.
"Just as sure as the New England Patriots will find a new way to cheat their way to the championship"..Huh?...Poorly written review.
I am glad to know that... I liked the film when I saw it in my 20's... I liked the message and still do. 67 was Poitiers year that is for sure.
Thanks for writing, Rob. The studio was indeed worried about how the film would play in the South, but it ended up being a smash here just like everywhere else in the country. Various sources (including IMDb) state that "This film was instrumental in largely ending the marketing consideration of how films featuring African-American characters and themes were assumed to be likely rejected by mainstream audiences in the Southern States of the USA. In that regard, the film was such a major widespread success throughout the entire USA, including the South, that the marketing factor would never again be considered a major problem for any major film release."
Could you imagine the reaction from the South when Guess Who's Coming to Dinner received when it was released? I wonder how it did money wise here. I know it was one of the top 5 grossing films of the year elsewhere.
The scene where Spencer Tracy gives that long speech at dinner where what people will think of an interracial couple in 1967 does not matter. Only what they feel for each other was shot in one take... Spencer Tracy was dying when he made this film. Katherine Hepburn and Stanley Kramer gave up their salary for the film to cover cost in case Tracy died during production... Columbia could not get him insured because of his declining health...
The tears you saw Katherine Hepburn and Sidney Poitier shedding were real, that was not scripted. Some great performers in a poignant farewell to one of the best actors ever.
I don't see any spoilers. What spoilers?
Thanks for writing, FranklinDallas and Alice. Ha; I like Fraggle Rock as well, but "suspense" isn't a word I would exactly associate with it. :)
:( I like Fraggle Rock....
