    5-0 out of 5 stars A classic
    This film has been revered by critics for over 50 years, and it still stands up as one of the best films in history.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Jewish exodus from Europe.
    The African city, Casablanca has become a refuge point for rich Europeanattempting to escape to America. Casablanca is Morocco's biggest city andchief port.Rich Jewish family emigrate To France, Canada, United States,and Israel. The fees for travel passage came in the form of barteredJewels, cash payments, and favors.The Rick's casino provided a networkvenue too arrange passage out of the country.
    5-0 out of 5 stars As Time Goes By ...It's Simply One of the Best
    I'm no film critic, but I do like older movies, especially Hitchcock, John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, and Humphrey Bogart. Casablanca bears watching again and again. It's wonderful love story, a mystery, and a war movie. Watching Casablanca the first time is an experience to be savored.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Bloody awful
    This is just awful. And I mean spine-tingingly bad. The songs are so terrible and so insistent that it makes you feel like kicking the TV in. The idea of the film is certainly interesting....certainly if it weren't played out as a musical. But it is and you can just see some of the actors baffled as to the sheer stupidity of what their doing. Some such as Tim Curry revel in the sheer nonsense this film provides. But seriously, those songs are beyond awful. My hatred for them rivals having to listen to Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights and that's intense. But Kate Bush has made some great songs so that's OK. This however, is the movie equivalent of getting an axe through your spinal cord. How it's achieved cult status is something that will have to go down on the peculiar habits of humans.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great movie
    A classic! A Must See! Although not really intended for kids my daughter at 4 used to love the music and dance along...now at 14 she still loves the songs but she thinks the movie is kinda corny. Us adults however, love the movie and of course the soundtrack too. Can't help but catch yourself singing along. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A charming tale of forbidden love
    Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger (in that order) give a great performance in this Hollywood epic tale of forbidden love. With this movie you get all the best of Hollywood technology, scenery, audio, video, casting and acting. The story in my opinion gets a little long and drawn out, losing some of it's appeal potential. It consists of a 20 year relationship of two cowboys who fall in love in 1963 while herding sheep together in Wyoming. These two break the rules wherever necessary to share their romance known only to them and their clueless wives who eventually figure it out but don't know how to bring up the subject. As their marriages become strained over the years, their love for each other continues to grow, but can never become the full time relationship they crave. The story could have in my opinion been written much better for a screenplay. I think most anyone could have written a better ending for this saga, but that is nothing new for Hollywood. No matter how many millions of dollars they spend to make the perfect movie, none of them seem to know how to end one. If the subject matter of this film offends you, you WILL NOT want to see this one. Although it never gets explicitly graphic with the sex scenes, there's enough there to offend opponents of such film subject matter. All in all, I enjoyed the movie on DVD. I do not have a widescreen television, but didn't notice anything out of the ordinary on this widescreen version. Perhaps someone with a widescreen could better review this version. Beautiful scenery from Wyoming and mostly Canada. Great nostalgic representation. I recommend watching Brokeback Mountain if you are into gay romance. It is thought provoking and realistic for the era it represents.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Almost a masterpiece, but not for everybody's taste...
    I found this a little too long, a little too slow, a little too sad to rate five stars. Worth seeing once, it is an honorable effort to portray the power of forbidden love between two modern-day cowboys who would obviously vote Republican on all but gay issues, and perhaps even on some of those. Now that the film is a couple of years old, I think it is safe to reveal that one of the leads does not survive the film. That was the most disappointing part...we come to care about the men, yet one passes from this world with only the briefest of depictions. I was surprised it did not win the Oscar as best film, but the awards were given out before I saw the movie. Now that I have seen it, I think it can be fairly called one of the ten best films of its year, and one of the three most talked about, but not deserving of the top honor for its season. Good performances for sure, but the script could have used some trimming and some punch.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Almost love ... but reality strikes!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great movie about the bonds of womanhood.
    This movie is a light harted romantic comedy on the surface.However, after watching it so many times that I could recite the lines by heart, I think there is much more to this film than meets the eye.Personally, I have studied acting and film, and I am also a writer, so from my personal experience with these things---I feel confident in saying this film is so much more than chick lit! The book by Alice Hoffman is considered chic lit, however it and this movie speaks more deeply to the way women treat one another.How judgemental we women actually are of each other, take the word witch out of it and replace it with anyother not so nice word, and women are much more likely to call each other that than men are!
    5-0 out of 5 stars SUPERB!
    This movie is so touching and magical. Once I've started watching it (can't even count the number of times I've watched it), I find it is hard to press the STOP button. Buy it and you won't regret and plus, I think Charmed "stole" the gist of this movie, if U catch my drift *wink*

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favs!
    I can not even tell you how many times i have watched this movie. This is probably the most natural performance I have ever seen from Kidman. She really seemed to fit the part. This movie can do no wrong with Sandra Bullock, a kickbutt soundtrack, and a well written story. Definitely one you will watch over and over!

    5-0 out of 5 stars "Oh dear, did I break wind?"
    National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is one of my favorite holiday films. Clark, Ellen, Rusty, Audrey, and Cousin Eddie are back but this is nothing like the disapointing sequel, European Vacation (that movie was awful), this time the Griswold's decide to stay home and celebrate Christmas the good old fashioned-way. Both of their parents arrive and unexpected guest causes mayhem for The Griswold's, yikes! Cousin Eddie, played geniusly by Randy Quaid. The last hour of the film is non-stop laughs. The perfect holiday movie, I highly recommend the yultide gathering of mishaps and complete fun. ... Read more

    Charmless and dull, this adaptation of the Broadway hit stars Aileen Quinn as the depression-era moppet, Albert Finney as Daddy Warbucks, Carol Burnett as the cruel headmistress at an orphanage, and Tim Curry as a villain. The film never gets its legs, and there is no sense of setting; it's almost as if the whole thing is happening in a void. John Huston nominally directed--no doubt to make money between his smaller, cheaper masterpieces--but one would have thought he would invest something of himself in here. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Movie Musical
    The Amazon review by Tom Keogh is totally ridiculous. "Charmless and dull???" I saw this movie about 8 times when it came out when I was little and was loved it so much. It's full of adventure, great songs, and a story about wanting to belong that children and adults can both relate to. The performances are great. One of Carol Burnett's best. If you haven't seen this movie yet, see it now.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not "Tomorrow" ..... Today!!!
    If you haven't already seen this one, do not wait until "Tomorrow", do it today.
    5-0 out of 5 stars one of the best musicals

    Editorial Review

    Ranking No. 21 on the American Film Institute's list of the 100 greatest American films, this 1940 classic is a bit dated in its noble sentimentality, but it remains a luminous example of Hollywood classicism from the peerless director of mythic Americana, John Ford. Adapted by Nunnally Johnson from John Steinbeck's classic novel, the film tells a simple story about Oklahoma farmers leaving the depression-era dustbowl for the promised land of California, but it's the story's emotional resonance and theme of human perseverance that makes the movie so richly and timelessly rewarding. It's all about the humble Joad family's cross-country trek to escape the economic devastation of their ruined farmland, beginning when Tom Joad (Henry Fonda) returns from a four-year prison term to discover that his family home is empty. He's reunited with his family just as they're setting out for the westbound journey, and thus begins an odyssey of saddening losses and strengthening hopes. As Ma Joad, Oscar-winner Jane Darwell is the embodiment of one of America's greatest social tragedies and the "Okie" spirit of pressing forward against all odds (as she says, "because we're the people"). A documentary-styled production for which Ford and cinematographer Gregg Toland demanded painstaking authenticity, Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars New Orleans and the Dust Bowl are the same thing
    It is defined still today as one of the most socialists film to come out from mainstream Hollywood.Contains scenes of authoritarian brutality and the awakening of proletarian consciousness.A film like this would be impossible in today's political context, and for sure it will not win Oscars (nowadays some throwaway things like "Crash" get the golden uncle).Despite a populist epilogue added by master producer Zanuk the events depicted in the film remain as the strongest warning against capitalism that I ever seen from an American movie.Greg Tolland's photography and the sweeping force of the story will blow you away.
    5-0 out of 5 stars seeing "Grapes of Wrath" is reliving my family's past!
    I've seen "Grapes of Wrath" many many times, and I bought the DVD to show my grandchildren what life was like and still is for many farmworkers. The Mexican farmworkers also went thru alot of hardships trying to survive and barely exist on what little they earned by harvesting the crops in California, Texas, Idaho, etc. etc.I show my Grandchildren this film to show the importance of getting an education, so as to break the cycle of living impoverished by working in the fields.Also, the more education you have, then you can do more to bring about justice to the lives of FarmWorkers by getting involved in making changes, and sometimes taking risks. I lived that life, so I know what I am talking about when I mentioned the hardhsips one had to endure in order to survive! and I enjoyed the way the film is told and Henry Fonda has always been one of my favorite Actors , as well as his daughter Jane Fonda. I recommend this movie to anyone that wishes to understand the plight of the Farmworker, whether they be "Oakies","Mexican",Filipinos", etc.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Meaningful
    This was a very interesting movie. It starts out slow, with the Joad family losing their farm and heading west, and mostly follows the storyline of the original novel. However, unlike other movies (from books), it has its own spirit and excitement.

    Annie and Haley are identical twins. Only they don't know it. They both meet at a summer camp and at first they do not get along. Then they are forced top live together and that is when they find out that they are twins.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Better than the original
    A charming film score coupled with a refreshing re-write of the timeless story turn this one into a classic in its own right.Lindsay Lohan outshines Hayley Mills in the role(s) of the twins, which puts this one a notch above the 1961 version.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly Enjoyable!
    This was the first movie I had seen with Lindsay Lohan and her performance has made me quite a fan of hers.Throw in an absolutely charming performance from Dennis Quaid, an ideal mom played by the lovely and talented Natasha Richardson, and a smart and warm housekeeper played by...er, I forget..and you'll see why this film gets so many rave reviews.

    This is one of the anchor movies for any fan of americana.This is the start of so many things that made the 70's and 80's movies special and started George Lucas in the film industry.It showed the talent the creator of Star Wars had in it's depth and reality of emotion and life in the 50's of America.I love this movie.

    5-0 out of 5 stars American Graffiti (Collector's Edition)
    This movie accurately depicts the era that was one of good times without drugs and rap (gutter) music. Times have changed just as people change but it is great to return to the memories of a time before lowered standards, outsourcing, being politically correct and illegal aliens. Thanks for the memories and an excellent movie.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great movie of great times
    As one of the reviewers said, it was GREAT to be a teenager in the late `50's and early `60's.I was 18 in '62 and wouldn't trade the memories of those times for anything.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing.
    This film is as close as it gets to perfection in the genre of historical fiction. DeNiro and Irons turn in two of the best peformances of their careers. The story, by Robert Bolt, is both complex and compelling. Few films engage the viewer on such a deep level and ask them to make a choice between the characters and their convictions. Is it right to take up arms to defend the innocent or is pacificism the only path for followers of Christ? Best film to ever take on this question. The scenery is majestic and the film's score is haunting. This is a sad, beautiful film that will rarely be equaled. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars What's Up, Doc?
    What's Up, Doc? is a 1972 throwback to the screwball comedies of the 30s. The result of an abandoned black comedy set to star Elliott Gould, Babs ended up in the feature with a severely altered script and Peter Bogdanovich at the helm.
    5-0 out of 5 stars classic comedy that's hysterically funny!
    All the other reviewers have said it so much better than I could so let me just say this:buy this movie.Right now.And I should warn you that by the time you've seen the whole thing, you'll probably have broken every single rib laughing but it is SO WORTH IT.

    4-0 out of 5 stars An old fashioned good time
    Silly it you may think it, slapstick it may be, but it still made my worldly modern teenagers laugh as hard as I did. It is a real romp, and while it may make old timers think of the Keystone cops sometimes, it is still very funny. Madelyn Kahn turned in a stellar performance and we were all breathless with laughter during the chase through the streets of San Francisco. I never thought my teenagers would laugh so hard at something that I thought of as wholesome good clean fun. ... Read more

    THE STORY OF NASA'S SUCESSFULL FAILURE! ! !
    5-0 out of 5 stars Hollywood at its best
    This movie is high in my top 10 off all times list, and is probably the best 'mainstream hollywood' movie I can think of. I watched it for the 3rd or 4th time and it is just as enjoying, thrilling and suspenseful as it was when I saw it first more than 10 years ago. My 12 years old daughter watched it with me for the first time and enjoyed it just as well. Great performance by all cast but especially Hanks, Paxton and Beacon. Probably Ron Howard best film ever.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Top film--but don't buy region 1
    I have region 1 and region 4 editions of this excellent film on DVD (widescreen Anniversary Editions).If your player is compatible, buy the region 4 edition.This plays slightly more quickly (?!) than the region 1 edition: the result is a 10-minute shorter film, with a noticeable increase in the crispness of the dialogue and music.Also, the region 1 edition suffers from up-and-down volume fluctuations in the dramatic strap-down sequence.The region 4 edition does not; its music is uniform and superb. ...

    Editorial Review

    An oddball love story about a fey loner named Sam (Johnny Depp), who falls in love with the mentally unbalanced Joon (Mary Stuart Masterson), who lives in the care of her protective brother Benny (Aidan Quinn). This 1993 story is hard to swallow, with its message that love can conquer a brand of mental illness that manifests itself in pyromania: Joon has a bad habit of going a bit around the bend and setting fires, but Sam's tender care apparently has the cure for what ails her. Still, if you want proof that Depp has significant chops as a physical comedian, give this film a try: He does note-perfect renditions of slapstick routines made famous by Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton.

    what a boring and pretentious movie! after tortured about 15 minutes, all the family members started to look each other or one another, then all agreed at the same time to reject this stupid shallow movie. depp or no depp, after twenty years, he's still playing the similar roles again and again, and never grows tired of it. but to me, and to us, enough is enough.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice flic to watch on a rainy afternoon
    Nice movie to watch on a rainy afternoon, good musical score.Even a 15 year old can enjoy it.

    Perhaps only the collective brilliant minds of the Monty Python film and television troupe are up to the task of tackling a subject as weighty as the Meaning of Life. Sure, Kierkegaard, Wittgenstein, and their ilk have tried their hands at this puzzler, but only Python has attempted to do so within the commercial motion picture medium. Happily for us all, Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Hard To Believe It's Monty Python
    Usually I'd give a five star review to anything Monty Python has done, but this film didn't really strike a chord with me.The reason?Lots of sex, gore, and vomit.I usually like things that are more suitable for children, so there was a lot of stuff in this movie for me not to like.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Classic Comedy
    I don't know about "DVD mastering" of this film which was criticized---I saw the VHS version. And, I don't know about people who can't laugh at "the Protestant vs. Catholic" incongruities---I suppose those people take their religion very seriously or are just "very serious" type of people.But, if you can see that "there is humor in everything" then you'd enjoy this CLASSIC COMEDY immensly!The film is not totally "suitable for children" because there is one "sex scene" in the film which I used to "fast forward" when any kids were present in the room while the film was on.So, it's an "adult film" I'd say.The good about the film is that you'll see one clever satire after another about many subjects that you might have believed were not humorous before seeing the film.And, it is an "intelligent funny film" ---it's not a farce or silly.You'll enjoy it---if you're not "too serious" that is!

    I went and saw another film as I was so disenchanted with this one. The opening had so little to do with the rest of the film I thought I was watching a preview to another film. I don't care for spoofs about Catholics and protestants. The Pythons can't sing or dance (for those on this board who claim their talents are innumerable).

    Editorial Review

    Just the name "Orient Express" conjures images of a bygone era. Add an all-star cast (including Sean Connery, Ingrid Bergman, Jacqueline Bisset, and Lauren Bacall, to name a few) and Agatha Christie's delicious plot and how can you go wrong? Particularly if you add in Albert Finney as Christie's delightfully persnickety sleuth, Hercule Poirot. Someone has knocked off nasty Richard Widmark on this train trip and, to Poirot's puzzlement, everyone seems to have a motive--just the setup for a terrific whodunit. Though it seems like an ensemble film, director Sidney Lumet gives each of his stars their own solo and each makes the most of it. Bergman went so far as to win an Oscar for her role. But the real scene-stealer is the ever-reliable Finney as the eccentric detective who never misses a trick. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best film interpretation of Christie EVER
    This is a great film with a great cast, everything is perfect. All the bad reviews of this film are bewildering. Every part of this film is hand picked by Christie, she waited decades to let this film be made because she wanted it to be made right, and she did the right thing in waiting, its perfect.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Murder on the Orient Express
    I read a little collection of Hercule Poirot short stories that I may have forgotten to review, but I've never read any of Agatha Christie's novels, and until now I'd never seen any of the movies. Yep, that's right. I'm old enough, too. How'd that happen?
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Cast.
    Murder on the Orient Express is a detective story that I think is based on a book by Agatha Christie. Well, it's clear from watching it that it's source material came from a book; Because it's got that classic detective story set up. Instead of a detective trying to solve a mystery and then a (what the writers think is a) big twist at the end. In this story, the detective does spend the whole movie trying to figure out what is going on...But instead of the twist, we have him with all the accused going over his interrogations and reveaaling who he believes is the culprit(s). This film is directed by Sidney Lumet, the director of such films as 'Dog Day Afternoon,' 'Serpico,' 'Network,'and 'Find Me Guilty.' I think out of those films, this is his weakest...But it doesn't go without being enjoyed. Albert Finney (with a wonderfully weird moustache) plays a Belgian detective named Hercule Poirot, who is boarding the Orient Express...Much to the dismay of the suspicious looking passengers. During the beginning of his trip, he is stopped by a man named Ratchett (Richard Widmark) who asks him to serve as a bodyguard for him. He's obviously desperate for one, for he offers 15,000 dollars. Poirot turns him down and then heads off to sleep. When he wakes up, Ratchett has been murdered...Poisoned and stabbed and it's Poirot's job to interrogate the passengers of the Orient Express. The very colorful suspects include Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman (in an Oscar winning performance), Jacqueline Bisset, Sean Conney, Anthony Perkins (Norman Bates, no less), Jean-Pierre Cassell, Vanessa Redgrave, and many others.

    5-0 out of 5 stars VHS better than DVD?
    If I could give this DVD four and a half stars, I would, but this is such a classic movie, I had to rate it higher.The DVD had the clarity, the trailers (which were awesome), and everything that I wanted, but for some reason, I noticed the DVD had some SMALL bits and pieces removed.Just small things like dialogue removed here and there, such as, when the college boys start chasing Daniel Stern after the moonlight serenade.It wasn't big, just something along the lines of "He has a Guitar" or something like that.I noticed part of the end bicycle race was maybe missing, too.Oh well.As a movie, I highly recommend this classic.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Breaking Away
    This is one I remember watching as a kid and never leaving the television untill it was over. A true classic.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Breaking Away - great fun for everyone
    An excellent film with really funny scenes of growing up in the 70's. For a Brit of 31 years I grew up on films like this so this is my view of the U.S., probably a little rose tinted, but I don't care.

    Editorial Review

    A box-office hit when released in 1994, this sprawling, frequently overwrought familial melodrama may get sillier as its plot progresses, but it's the kind of lusty, character-based epic that Hollywood should attempt more often. It's also an unabashedly flattering star vehicle for Brad Pitt as Tristan--the rebellious middle son of a fiercely independent Montana rancher and military veteran (Anthony Hopkins)--who is routinely at odds with his more responsible older brother, Alfred (Aidan Quinn), and younger brother, Samuel (Henry Thomas). From the battlefields of World War I to his adventures as an oceangoing sailor, Tristan's life is full of personal torment, especially when he returns to Montana and finds himself competing with Alfred over Samuel's beautiful widow (Julia Ormond), whose passion for Tristan disrupts the already turbulent Ludlow clan. Under the wide-open canopy of Big Sky country, this operatic tale unfolds with all the bloodlust, tragedy, and scenery-chewing performances you'd expect to find in a hokey bestselling novel (in fact, it's based on the acclaimed novella by Jim Harrison), but it's a potent mix that's highly entertaining. Not surprisingly, John Toll won an Academy Award for his breathtaking outdoor cinematography. Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Legends Of The Dull
    More predictable than an old TV Land episode of Bonanza and much less entertaining, this story of an anti-government rancher and his three sons, one the upstanding sort who seeks to work for good within the system, one an idealist, and the middle son, Tristan, played by Brad Pitt, a tormented man who seeks to find peace within nature's anger. At least that's what I think he was doing. The fact is I never was a fan of this movie, not back in the 1990's when my best friend loved it (and predicted Julia Ormond would be a superstar--sorry, Gina, if you ever read this, I just couldn't resist working that in there, ha-ha) and not upon the occasion of a recent second viewing. I don't think there's anything to really recommend this movie to anyone. It's not spectacular in its setting, it's not revolutionary in its by-the-numbers story, and I found then and still find now that it is highly melodramatic and boring. To each his own, I know some love this movie, but from where I sit, this film is a would-be epic that never rises above fluff.

    Hauntingly beautiful folk music and stunning Appalachian scenery take center stage in this winner of the 2000 Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Prize for outstanding ensemble performance. Musicologist Dr. Lily Penleric has a deep love of English folk ballads. After a humiliating failure to make full professor, she heads off to visit her sister's tiny school in rural Appalachia and finds herself in folk music central. Lily is entranced, but the locals are suspicious of the outlander's motivations. Issues of tolerance, clashing cultures, and Big Bad Men abound, but Read more

    I got this movie based on the rave reviews here and expected to hear tons of old time Appalachian music in real mountain settings but what I got was a typical hollywood drama. That is so sad because this movie has all of the potential in the world to highlight the music it extolls but fails to deliver.

    The music was what i grew up hearing.....my Granny was a singing woman.....i was born and raised in the mountains of Western NC and Eastern Tn. My Great Granddaddy was a music teacher from Keen Ireland.....i know these songs and the people they came from......they are my people...the hymns were as much as part of the air as the songs in this film..hymns were as much a part of the culture as the secular songs....yet, they were completly absent from the movie, giving a very distorted view of the culture. Also, the attitude of the church goers toward the two gay women in the movie was not the attitude of the church people i grew up with ...the moviemakers operated out of the same narrow judgemental perspective as the church goers in themovie. Wonderful character development, Emmy Rossum's voice and charachter portrayal was right on target, as ws some of the others. A few of the more subtle values of the "highlander" culture were wonderfully presented in this movie. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Originally made for TV in 1977, this in-depth (six hours plus) version of Jesus' life is so thorough that the first hour is devoted solely to the story of his birth. The film doesn't skimp on some of the other landmark events of this famous story either. Director Franco Zeffirelli gives more than 12 minutes screen time each to the Last Supper and the Crucifixion.Passages of the Bible are quoted verbatim, the locations have a Palestine-like authenticity, and, aside from some of the principals (Robert Powell as Jesus, Olivia Hussey as Mary, and Stacy Keach as Barabbas), many of the non-Roman characters are actually played by Semitic-looking actors. Zeffirelli diligently provides the sociopolitical background that gave rise to Jesus' following and the crisis in belief it caused for the people of Israel (and one or two Romans). While not graphic by today's standards, some of the scenes--baby boys being ripped from their mothers' arms and slaughtered, nails being driven into Jesus' hands--may disturb young and/or sensitive children.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The True Vine.
    One of the great works of the cinema - by far my favorite rendering of The Life on film - what I like most is the script's fidelity to Scripture and the magnificent and inspiring exposition of the Parables.This part of the film - the comprehensive depiction of Christ's Mission in spirit and meaning - through the context of the text of the Gospels - is to be found nowhere else in the genre - and assuages reception of the inevitably more interpretative scenes.Undoubtedly, in comparison with the recent effort of Mel Gibson, et al., the representation of the Passion looks somewhat tame. However, the comprehensive quality of the narrative here provides more than enough ballast to keep the viewer rapt.Continuing the comparison, it does take some time in the early frames get over the British accents.After all, the film was made in English for English speaking audiences.However, inspired acting up and down the line puts that one to bed fast.After few minutes of the genius of Peter Ustinov (in one of his finest moments) as Herod, stomping, ranting, raving mad in his political calculations - you forget the petty flaws.Needless to say, Robert Powell's career/performance as Jesus is vastly superior to any other on celluloid, and one of the supreme gestures in the history of media.Awesome.And Olivia Hussey's brilliant rendering of the Virgin Mary is, in my opinion, distinctly more affecting and profound than her celebrated rendering of Juliet, which, for whatever reasons, has played continuously to Amercan high school audiences for the past thirty years. In retrospect, and mostly due to what we see here, the modest and retiring Ms Hussey must be regarded as one of the greatest actresses of her era.This masterpiece, seen again and again, only gets more powerful, imparts more insight with each viewing.Having first viewed "Jesus of Nazareth" in it's premiere as one of the earliest T.V. mini-series back in the 1970's, I bear witness to the truth of the assertion that this film is one of the few that loses nothing to time and, characteristic of true classics, seems rather to gain.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Crucial Study
    I was only 12 when I saw this the first time, and my father had to actully push me to watch it. Well, now I know more about the cross that parents are forced to carry for the sake of their children. As in his "Romeo and Juliet," "Taming of the Shrew," "Hamlet," and "Tea With Mussolini," Director Franco Zeffirelli's work is nothing short of phenomenal. In my opinion, one's study of the Bible is not complete until he or she has seen this movie. As in his other movies, Director Franco Zeffirelli gives us fascinating scenery and great background music. He also has actors who become the characters they are suppose to. (Some previous reviewers pointed out that as Jesus, Robert Powell never even blinks!) Interestingly, the movie starts a little before even the Gospels. (Mary and Joseph haven't made the formal arrangements yet.) The arguably best thing about this movie is that not only does it harmoniously combine the 4 Gospels, it actually adds a lot of educated speculation and turns briefly mentioned characters from the Gospels into fully 3d human beings. As Christians of today, we have hindsight, so we can easily fall into the trap of simply labeling characters weak, bad, etc. What this movie does is it removes hindsight and helps us understand the characters in the Bible more. Jesus was in fact bringing changes to established order, and naturally, despite his wonderful deeds, people could have divided feelings about him. Isaac Asimov said that the Jewish authorities had been taught that their religion placed emphasis on a strict adherence to the letter of the law, while Jesus' view was that it was alright to deviate from the written law if it meant doing a greater good. We often think of Caiaphas as the man who handed Jesus over to the Romans. But even the Anglican Bishop Richard Holloway said that Jesus called himself the son of God, and as the high priest, Caiaphas had to react to that. (We also tend to forget that Caiaphas had a job to keep order. And if he let things get out of hand, the Romans would take matters into their hands no matter how bloody things had to get.) We often just see Judas as the one who betrayed Christ. Well, was this out of malice? The Gospels say he hung himself afterwards. Certainly he wasn't happy about what he had done. As the movie suggests, he could very well have been tricked by Jesus' enemies into doing so: "If he really is the Messiah, God will not abandon him. And if he isn't, you will have saved Israel from another false prophet." Judas may very well have thought that he was bringing Jesus to a meeting where he could explain himself before the religious authorities. (King Richard III actually eliminated some of his enemies by putting them under the impression that they were just coming to a meeting and of course when they arrived, they were imprisoned and executed.) All in all, this is a phenomenal movie that not only harmoniously combines the 4 Gospels, but it also offers a lot of educated speculation that helps things make more sense. It also helps us to understand people we may have only seen through limited vision. Whether you are Roman Catholic, Anglo Catholic, Methodist, or any other Christian, this movie is an essential study.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Epic movie that gets better year after year
    They just don't have movies like this anymore.This is not a movie that makes Charlie Sheen or Tom Berenger appeal to the young audiences who like flashy stars on sceen.This is amovie to show you the reality of war and experiences that happened to people in the past.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Platoon Ages Poorly
    Oliver Stone's Platoon now seems, after 20 years, to not be the epic Vietnam film we all believed it to be. There are so many things wrong with it that it just doesn't add up to anything more than an above average film. The music, particularly, the use of Samuel Barber's Adaggio For Strings, is so repetitious as to ruin an otherwise great piece of classical music.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Realistic, Yet Hopeless War Story.
    Based upon director and writer Oliver Stone's own experiences in Vietnam, PLATOON was the first major motion picture about that war directed by a veteran from that conflict.The movie revolves around a young American soldier, Pvt. Chris Taylor (a young Charlie Sheen) and the platoon he lives and fights with during his tour of duty.The battle sequences are very gritty, graphic, and realistic.Taylor serves under the direct leadership of Sgt. Elias Grodin (Willem Dafoe), but both men are under the command of Staff Sgt. Bob Barnes (Tom Berenger). Grodin and Barnes have two completely different views of leadership and opposing worldviews.Grodin represents everything that is good and noble and worth fighting for in the conflict, while Barnes represents all the evil and ugliness of the war.At its core then, PLATOON is a movie about the internal war for one soldier's soul between good and evil.Though Stone based the film upon his own experiences, there are scenes that have been embellished and the view Stone presents is only one view of the war--see the film WE WERE SOLDIERS for the opposite view as presented by Stone in PLATOON.
