(kr) wrote: Doc about the now-defunct recording studio that produced a wide range of hits from the 70s through the 00s, directed by Dave Grohl. The film has two distinct halves: the first documents a history of the studio, and the second is a string of session recordings from artists who worked at the studio. The first half consists entirely of interviewed talking heads; due to the format it feels rather disjointed, and could have benefitted from narration conveying a narrative thread. Still, it's a fairly absorbing little music history lesson, focusing primarily on Fleetwood Mac, Rick Springfield, Tom Petty and Nirvana, along with changes in technology and culture.The real draw is the second half, though. It gives an insight into the process of composing in a spontaneous live format, and the personalities involved. The artists convey different approaches, and the interviews continue to provide further background. By the end you'll feel thoroughly immersed in what it takes to create great music... and there's a lot of it made right here. If you enjoyed Amadeus, you'll find similar spine-tingling buttons pushed here, despite being a totally different film.Also, Paul McCartney still has a ridiculously powerful voice.

(de) wrote: I really enjoyed this 2005 Independent film. It is set in rural Minnesota right after World War I when a mail order bride of German origin arrives to marry a young hard working farmer. Elizabeth Reaser and Tim Guinee turn in such wonderful performances and there is such great chemistry between them. Inge (Elizabeth Reaser) struggles against language barriers, and social prejudices. Theirs is a soft but lovely love story..

(us) wrote: MUCH better than "moonstruck" this movie actually has a story and the actors are all incredible. I love Danny Aiello the most, probably because 89% of the time in this film he reminds me of my dad, and it's like watching him on the screen. The story is entertaining and more. It truly depicts an Italian-American family and hits the nail on the head with the constant yelling and fighting and putting each other down. Of course, I wouldn't know too much about that; I'm Sicilian =D See this movie, if you don't like it the first time, you probably will the 5th time like me =P
