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 did not come together for me. My favorite aspects of the movie were that Gwyneth Paltrow had great costumes and there was a song I liked by Tori Amos. I also enjoyed the actor who played young Finn. When Ethan Hawke took over the role he seemed very needy and whimpered for lack of a better term.

A good movie

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick. 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

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1884 movies items)

" Just like William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, we get a 90’s update of a classic story, and one with a soundtrack to match. While not as big as a hit, as Romeo + Juliet, it still decent enough at the box office, and got marginal ok reviews by critics."

"Great film that has sadly been somewhat forgotten (where's the Blu-ray release?). I mean Alfonso Cuaron and a very underrated DeNiro performance? Definitely needs to be in the collection."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- October 2017 (23 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 52min. First Viewing Its certainly an ambitious film, and I do give it credit for that, but Great Expectations has a difficult time adapting Charles Dickens' classic novel for modern times. The cast is fine, and the production value is exception, but the story feels too strained; the beginning is solid, but falters once it gets to New York. Where they get away with it in the beginning, you can feel the classicism clash with the film's modernism, and the tone feels wobbly at best. It's"
