A very good movie

Back in the 80’s, Lawrence Kasdan was really on fire. Not only he wrote some of the biggest box-office successes of the time (‘Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back’, ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’, ‘Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi’) , he managed also to launch a very successful directing career as well. Unfortunately, later on, his movies were honestly not that good a... read more

I have watched The Big Chill so many times that I can recite the dialog right along with the characters, but I still love it every time I watch it - it is one of the most enjoyable movies of all time - the characters are played by a Phenomenal ensemble cast that is responsible for many of my favorite movies, they are wonderful -the music is top notch, as Harold said it was from a tim... read more

Description: Lawrence Kasdan's 1983 big-budget variation on John Sayles's The Return of the Secaucus Seven finds a cluster of old college radicals--who have since gone on to sundry professions and various degrees of materialism--reuniting over the death of a friend. Both playful and thoughtful, the film represents Kasdan (Body Heat) at his most as ... (more)

25 From 83: My Favorite Films Of 1983 (25 movies items)

"A bunch of baby boomers reunite when one of their own takes his own life. A reunion that sparks off the realization that the dreams & ambitions of their youth may also have died. While The Big Chill never became the darling to me that it has to many cinema critics (particularly at the time of it's release) I do enjoy that the film carries the smartness & observations of the story in a manner that doesn't seem to age as time goes by. The characters each come to the conclusions that, no matter w"

Moviewatcher122's 2014 Film Diary: May (38 movies items)

"May 14 "Are not the satisfactions of being a good man among our common men great enough to sustain us anymore?" I really liked this movie. It had great performances especially from a couple of the actors that I'm usually not impressed by. The plot is simple yet it's still well-executed. I really enjoyed watching this movie and the cast is what makes it a very good movie."

Unfortunately, later on, his movies were honestly not that good and it has been at least 20 years since he has written or directed something really worthwhile. Anyway, this movie was his second directing effort and, even though it is nowadays pretty much forgotten, it was really critically heralded when it was released. Indeed, there was quite an impressive cast (Tom Berenger, Glenn Close, Jeff Goldblum, William Hurt, Kevin Kline, Meg Tilly) and they all delive” read more

"Maybe you have to be of a certain age to appreciate this acclaimed movie but it didn't really do anything for me and I couldn't warm to any of the characters. It feels like The Breakfast Club for adults. "
