Great Expectations

Stylized movies usually bother me. The "style" usually takes away from the story. But this story is perfect for this. I've watched this movie several times, and it has stayed fresh with each re-watching. The sex scenes are truly erotic, the sad scenes are very melancholy, and the happy scenes are ... melancholy too. Really enjoyable, while being good cinema at the same time.

I wanted to like this, but it didn't come together. I greatly enjoyed the actor who played young Finn. When Ethan Hawke took over the role, it seemed unauthentic. The character became too needy and he whimpered for lack of a better term. Gwyneth Paltrow had great costumes. There was a song I liked by Tori Amos. I would not watch this again, though.

A good movie

In fact, back then , the main reason I wanted to watch the damned thing was because Robert De Niro was involved and, at the time, I had no idea that Alfonso Cuaron would turn out to be one of the most interesting directors of his generation. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, I thought it was a decent watch. I have to admit that... read more

Based on Charles Dickens' timeless tale, this is a story of the love of a man for an unreachable woman. Updated to modern day New York City, the story concerns a man of modest background who falls in love with a rich girl. But when a mysterious benefactor greenlights the man to make his dreams come true, everything done has the ultimate goal of making Estella fall in love with him.

Anyway, coming back to our main feature, I thought it was a decent watch. I have to admit that my positive rating probably had to do with the fact that this movie was the very first contact I had with this tale and, if I read the book or watched a more heralded adaptation before, I might have didn’t like it so much. Still, I really loved the mood created by Cuaron and the beginning of the movie was quite mesmerizing to behold. Unfortunately, they didn’t manage to keep this up and the r” read more
