Monique Y (ag) wrote: I really enjoyed this one! Didn't know much about casting and what a magical process it is. What a keen eye it takes to be able to associate a role with a particular actor in order to fulfill the goal of creating the emotions you want your public to feel. Marion Dougherty, my respect to your impeccable sense of taste!

Angelina C (es) wrote: A South African lad finds an orphan cheetah cub then raises it. When the time comes to return it to the wild, boy and cat set off on a trek, weaving back and forth across the line between domesticated and primal. What a treat! It is a wonderful tender, coming of age tale and it is a suitable family entertaintment. The film does not bill itself as a 'true story(TM) but Duma takes its inspiration from a true tale and some parts have been altered during the making of the movie. It is based on the book How It Was With Dooms by Xan and Carol Hopcraft. South African newcomer Alex Michaletos is perfect in the lead role but the real scene-stealer is Michaletos' sleek and spotted co-star. There are no flashy CGIs here, the wonder is that Duma is a real cheetah. Surprisingly, cheetahs do not roar instead they make chirping noises rather than big primal calls. The cinematography is beautiful with its stunning African vistas and some amazing shots of the African wildlife too. However, the plot of the movie tend to get a tad far fetched along the way. When the lad decides to take it upon himself to return his adopted cheetah to the wild. That being said, overall it is still a good movie and everybody who likes an old-fashioned, grand adventure ought to give it chance. No worries, it doesn't milk the waterworks very much.

Kevin H (jp) wrote: Quite possibly one of the worst slasher films I have ever seen, there are documentaries on cheese that are more exciting than this film. One of the more annoying moments in the film is a scene where a band plays the exact same song twice in a row. Watch for Vanna White screaming before she learned how to turn letters and a very unique way to kill a person using both a javelin and a football. Avoid unless you like crappy horror movies, which I do.

Andrew C (es) wrote: Alfred Hitchcock is probably thankful that his name doesn't appear on the poster for this remake of his Hall-of-Fame-worthy "Rear Window". While this is a reasonably enjoyable teen/drama/thriller, it's a better film if one considers it on its own merits instead of comparing it to the original. Shia--who owes his entire career to Mr. Spielberg--launches into stardom with this role and does a fine job of being a kind of teenage Everyman (although one under house arrest) but there just isn't quite enough intrigue in the story to call it 'great'. 11/19/9
