A masterpiece...

"This is the story of Harold Crick..."

Stranger Than Fiction is a film that completely blew me away. Still minutes after concluding my screening I have tears wetting my eyes, goose-bumps covering my body and I am still trying to figure out what I have just experienced.

Before watching this movie I had only glanced at the film's theatrical poster and thus I had no clu... read more

It's strange alright. It's been a few hours since I've watched it and I still can't figure out what to make of it (not as in confusion, just unsure how it made me feel). It's not that I didn't enjoy it but I think a part of me feels that not only was it pointless but at times that it was almost silly. In saying that, I'd still recommend it.

I've also come to expect Will Ferrell to d... read more

I really liked this movie!
I was surprised, just from looking at it and reading the blurb it seems like its going to be a dull, boring movie! but its not, infact, its the complete opposite!

Ok, so this movie is pretty hard to follow in my oppinion. I'll just say basically what its about.
So the movie is all about a man called Harrold Crick. He is ... well ... a normal ... read more

Description: Karen Effiel is an author writing her latest novel about an isolated man named Harold Crick. What she doesn't know is that her fictionalized character is real. The real Harold Crick is an IRS agent who has lived a dull existence and one day begins to hear Karen's voice as she narrates what she puts on paper to what Harold has and is doing. Because of this Harold enlists the help of a literary professor to find out what is happening and ends up changing things about his life including beginning a relationship with his IRS client, a government-hating bakery owner named Ana Pascal. Harold, however, finds trouble when he hears that ... (more)

1001 Movies ... my own version (2000's) (122 movies items)

" Notes: I had been following Marc Forster for quite a while now and it was yet another amazing feature under his résumé but, to be honest, it has been a while since this director has delivered something really impressive. Indeed, 'Quantum of Solace' was destroyed by the critics and mostly hated by the viewers, 'Machine Gun Preacher' was barely seen and rather disappointing, and even though 'World War Z' eventually turned out to be a box-office hit, this movie had to face some major production"

"Re-watch - Dec. 5th I figured thematically this was a nice way to follow up on the last few films. Blurring the lines between reality & fiction often entertains me, and I love the ways this story is told and structured. It had been long enough since I last saw it that I'd forgotten a lot of the details and thus was able to get into the story better than if I'd watched it a bunch of times. I much prefer this side of Will Ferrell over his stupid comedy side."
