A bad movie

Even though it was a huge flop, I was still curious about this flick. Unfortunately, I must admit it, it was indeed pretty bad, as a matter of fact, it was even worse than I expected. I mean, even though ‘Dances with Wolves’ was a decent movie, I never thought it was really amazing and I was never convinced by Kevin Costner’s directing skills. This movie made it clear I was right. I mean, it... read more

I was a bit skeptical in the beginning of this movie that it would be something less than entertaining. Yet, as the movie progressed, it took on a new inspiration for all of us around the world, but mostly here in the United States, reminded of how we can come together as a nation, and what can bring us all down to our knees. This movie tells a story of hope. Hope of something we used to be, an... read more

Movie Reviews (1701-1750) (50 movies items)

" How could anyone think that a movie about a postman would be interesting even if it is meant to be a futuristic western and star Kevin Costner? Hell, even dogs bite postmen, for Christ's sake! I guess also postmen needs cheering up though and have a hero to appreciate. It is not all that bad though. It has good production values and is competent acted, but slow, slow as the mail delivery in the town I live in. "

The future kind of sucks. (367 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: Nuclear war destroys the planet, and people are reduced to living in small communities. But at least Tom Petty, gets to be a mayor of a town! Year it takes place: 2013 "
