Slacking delivery

An all star cast, that was bored by a very slow moving story. It drags a lot and just didn't end up giving me that kick that good movies give me. The story had a lot of potentional but was just shown in a really slow moving way. I do like dramas they are usually what I always watch but this was just too slow for me. The acting was average even though we have some incredible actors in this movie. I... read more

Based on an Off-Broadway play, Marvin’s Room sees an estranged family come back together to mak... read more

A good movie

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick but, even though it is a rather obscure drama, I thought it was actually pretty good. I mean, first of all, there was an impressive cast (Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Diane Keaton, Robert De Niro), any movie starring these actors would be worth a look and they all delivered some solid performances. To be honest, the material itself... read more

But after a talk with Dr. Wally, Bessie realizes that the family caregiver needs a little loving herself. Lee, on the other hand, has troubles of her own--starting with her mischievous son Hank, who has a knack for burning down the neighborhood when she's not looking. It's been seventeen years since he ... (more)

" Director: Jerry Zaks His 1st movie My 1st movie watched from the director This cast is stacked, but none of them deliver a memorable performance. Diane Keaton comes closest and DeNiro's role is a total waste. The story is about relationships, and the sister relationship is the only one that pays off in the end. Actually the most impressive part of the miss is the fact that this unknown director, Jerry Zaks, somehow was able to get all these great actors together for a very average movie."
