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

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.

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)

“Back in the 80’s, Lawrence Kasdan was really on fire.

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. "

"Chloe: Alex and I made love the night before he died. It was fantastic. Nick: He went out with a bang, not a whimper. Sam Weber: Do you think we're all trying trying to avoid dealing with Alex? You know, every time it comes up somebody changes the subject. Nick: Hey, it's a dead subject. Nick: Wise up, folks. We're all alone out there and tomorrow we're going out there again. Meg: It's a cold world out there. Sometimes I feel like I'm getting a little frosty myself. Michael: Amazing tra"

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"There is no place for depth or nuance in this slickly engineered complacency machine. - Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader It has all the right moves. It knows all the right words. Its characters have all the right clothes, expressions, fears, lusts and ambitions. But there's no payoff and it doesn't lead anywhere. - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times"

My Favorite 199 Films From The 80's, y'all. (199 movies items)

"A bunch of baby boomers reunite when 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 what ag"
