Sherman's Way (2008)
Warm Humorous Film Worth Seeing
We were at a convention for British Car Enthusiasts and somehow the director/producer was invited to screen the film for over 300 of us at the convention. There happens to be an MGB in the film so the organizers thought it would be cool. No one had ever heard of the film, but most everyone enjoyed it and got quite a few laughs out of it.
Turned out to be a very good film in fact and worth seeing when it gets to the big screen or on DVD if it does not make it to the theater.
About life, taking risks, relationships and very well done with a good story line. Other than some language and minor skinny dipping scenes it still could be a very good family film.
Thinking about it almost reminds me of a modern Easy Rider in a way.
The Aviator (2004)
Very Long and Drags much of the time
I was really looking forward to seeing this movie after all the press and favourable ratings. We saw it on opening day in the Detroit area and found the movie to be just OK. I give it a 4 on the scale of 10. Acting was OK, script was so so. I was expecting much more action I guess. The movie was at least 45 minutes too long IMO, most of the people walking out of the large theatre which was about 3/4 empty felt about the same way based on comments that we overheard. The story seemed to ramble on with no progression, little dramatic tension and then ended at what seemed to be an arbitrary point. It seemed that there wasn't a lot of continuity from scene to scene. In short, given the positive press, it was a disappointment.
Good film, fun. Music is great
Have seen the film a few times over the years. Although not as good as the live play (saw it three times ;) The film does try to provide the same spirit. Worth seeing and enjoying at least once. Also fun to see how the major characters have prospered over the years in other films and television. A cult film with the likes of Rocky Horror. The next one to come out like this mark my words when it eventually happens will be Mama Mia.
The Sea Gypsies (1978)
Fun Family Entertainment
Just watched the movie, may have seen it years before. I thought it was entertaining, fun, and worth the time. Great family entertainment, nothing objectionable. The acting was not the best, but they did an ok job. I happen to like boating movies and this was a good one.
