A great movie

So far, it is the best movie I have seen which was released in 2012. I know, many of you will probably be surprised that I give it so much praise, especially considering the fact that I'm not really generous with my ratings nowadays but this movie hit me really bad and I was a wreck at the end. I even shed a few tears, something that never happened to me before. First of all, after 20 years of min... read more

There are some movies that stick with you even after the credits have run and you've headed back to your everyday life. You'll suddenly find yourself thinking of it on your drive to work or while you make dinner. This movie is like that for me. At first I just loved it. It's a beautiful love story about two broken people who find away to heal through each other. Cooper and Lawrence are perfec... read more

"Nikki's waiting for me to get in shape and get my life back together. Then we're going to be together."

Although it's a tad overrated in some circles, Silver Linings Playbook is a fine piece of filmmaking engineered by acclaimed director David O. Russell, whose 2010 feature The Fighter earned him a few Oscars and a truckload of box office dollars. Here, Russell fundamentally melds ... read more

From Best to Worst: Robert De Niro (88 movies items)

"Silver Linings Playbook walks a tricky thematic tightrope, but David O. Russell's sensitive direction and some sharp work from a talented cast gives it true balance."

Best Picture Nominees - Worst to Best | 2013 Oscar (9 movies items)

" This is how to create a brilliant rom-com. Instead of stuffing the film with those whimsical, silly and now downright annoying things that seems to massacre that genre, David O. Russell creates a rom-com that's grounded in reality. Everything in this film feels real. And that's because it features top-notch performances, a superb script that manages to tackle troublesome thematics while being emotionally engaging and humorous, and efficient directing. This is one of those rare film experien"

“i saw this movie thinking that it would be boring based on the title (my prejudice), but it was a really good movie i wouldn't call it oscar worthy (sorry jennifer), it was crazy, a new and exciting concept of a movie, its originality is brilliant, the acting is brilliant, ive seen this movie twice already, id put this in the emotional/comical/journey to finding ones self drama

Every Life Has a Silver Lining.....

“Life is not fair, it never was and never will be, so what should we do about that? Should we be cry babies or should we get along with our lives without letting any single opportune moment to pass, because every life how pathetic it may be has a moment to excel - the silver lining.

Silver linings Playbook, directed by David O Russel of The Three Kings and The Fighter fame is a noteworthy effort with a simple yet powerful script and a very impressive cast. The narrative is so nicely paced that it peaks on its own and excels beautifully.

The cast is adorable. While Bradley cooper impresses, Jennifer Lowrence steals the show and watching Robert De Niro in a decent role ( after so long) is a real treat.

All in all Silver Linings Playbook is an impressive piece o” read more

“Such a darkly humorous film. I really enjoyed both leads performances, especially Bradley Cooper. He really went all out for this one! Made me completely forgive him for doing those terrible Hangover movies! I liked Jennifer as well, though feel she was a little over the top at times and am still surprised she won an Oscar for that performance. I feel like the academy votes for whoever is the loudest and most modern character.” read more

“This movie is great and definitely one of the better love movies that iv'e watch in the past couple years. Tons of great actors like Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper , Chris Tucker. The film follows Bradley Cooper (Pat) after staying in a mental hospital for some time he finally get's to go back home to his family. During this time he tries to get his life back together so he can get back together with his ex-wife. While having dinner over at his friends house he meets Jennifer Lawrence (Tiffany) she is Bi-polor and her and Pat have plenty of great moments that end up with one of them freaking out on each other. Tiffany is cousins with Pats ex-wife and she tells him that she will give her letters from him if he helps her with a dancing contest. Basically they end of falli” read more

"Silver Linings Playbook" (2012)

“FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Silver Linings Playbook rounded out my trio of rentals this week because there aren't yet any films from this year that I thought would be good enough to offset Die Hard 5 and Gangster Squad. And it turns out I made a very good choice indeed! :D I loved it!

I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking mental illness is a very delicate subject, but I don't think any movie should be interpreted as a parable. I think of this more as a character study of two people helping each other to stand on their own two feet again. (I have heard from Film Brain, though – whom you can usually trust considering how meticulously he researches these things – that it's a pretty realistic depiction of mental illness.)

It's also astonishingly well acted across the board” read more

“Silver Linings Playbook is another movie which I don't get the hype, that said it is not a bad movie but what was all the hype about. Jennifer Lawrence did steal the movie, and did a fantastic job as Tiffany. All the actors in the movie did a good job, The story was interesting and at times funny with a touch of darkness. The story also sheds light on mental illness, which is the core subject of the film, the story is good but for me some parts of the story let me down. Overall it is a good movie, a interresting story with some good acting.” read more

I even shed a few tears, something that never happened to me before. First of all, after 20 years of mindless garbage, the great Robert De Niro was finally showing up in a good movie giving a great performance like in the good old days. Only to see good old Bob just killing it, that was already emotional for me. Secondly, the characters and the whole story really touched me personally as I was reminded of how I met my wife and why we ended up together in the first place. As soon as the DVD is out, I” read more

“"Nikki's waiting for me to get in shape and get my life back together. Then we're going to be together."

Although it's a tad overrated in some circles, Silver Linings Playbook is a fine piece of filmmaking engineered by acclaimed director David O. Russell, whose 2010 feature The Fighter earned him a few Oscars and a truckload of box office dollars. Here, Russell fundamentally melds the screwball comedy of I Heart Huckabees with the dramatics and the uplifting disposition of The Fighter, and it's a concoction that works. Written by Russell himself, Silver Linings Playbook is an adaptation of Matthew Quick's novel of the same name. It's a story which deals with the delicate subject of mental illness in a respectful fashion, and it manages to alternate between poignant and light-hea” read more

Silver Linings Playbook

“When it first started, I was more than a little worried that Silver Linings Playbook would be a movie which made mental illness seems quirky and funny, and not the debilitating and often harrowing experience it actually can be. But the atomic bomb which annihilated all doubts I had about the movie came in the form of Jennifer Lawrence.

Well, maybe not any and all doubts, I still take issue with the movie industries insistence on creating “fixable” and attractive hysterics. Real life mental illness is a lifelong struggle that one does not magically overcome by falling in love with another mentally ill person. But no matter, there’s enough in Silver Linings Playbook to feel that a happy ending for these character may be deserved, after all, they do suffer quite a bit througho” read more
