In most of her acceptance speeches, she expressed her admiration for the real Queen, and dedicated both her Golden Globe and her Oscar to Elizabeth II.man this is such a really really sad movie 2 watch, its got a great cast throughout this movie.....man this is such a really powerful drama movie 2 watch, its got a great cast throughout this movie......Before the film was released, critics praised both Stephen Frears and Peter Morgan, who later received Golden Globe and Academy Award-nominations for Best Director and Best Screenplay. Michael Sheen's performance as Tony Blair earned him particular acclaim. Helen Mirren's portrayal garnered her acclaim from critics around the world. Her portrayal made her a favourite for the Academy Award for Best Actress well before the film was released in theatres. After its showing at the Venice Film Festival, Mirren received a five-minute-long standing ovation. Roger Ebert came out of recovery from surgery to give the film a review. He called it "spellbinding" and gave it four out of four stars. The Queen was the most critically acclaimed film of 2006 with Mirren being the most critically acclaimed actress of the year. The Queen has 97% positive reviews on the film-critics aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes. Amongst the few negative reviews, Slant Magazine's Nick Schager criticised the insider portraiture of the film as "somewhat less than revelatory, in part because Morgan's script succumbs to cutie-pie jokiness [...] and broad caricature", mentioning particularly "James Cromwell's Prince Philip, who envisions the crowned heads as exiled victims and the gathering crowds as encroaching 'Zulus'".The film exceeded box-office expectations; with a budget of $15 million the film earned $56.4 million in the United States and Canadaman this is such a really really powerful drama movie 2 watch, its got a great cast throughout this movie.....man this is such a brilliant movie 2 watch, i think that this is such a really well written/acted/directed movie 2 watch, its got a great cast throughout this movie.....Historical accuracy Some aspects of the characters are known to be true to their real-life counterparts. Cherie Blair's hostility to the monarchy has been widely reported, including her refusal to curtsey. According to Morgan, "cabbage" is an actual term of endearment Philip uses for his wife (mon chou - "my cabbage" - is a standard affectionate nickname in French). Other elements represent characteristics associated with people depicted. The electric guitar seen behind Blair in his personal office is a reference to his past membership in the band Ugly Rumours while a student. The Newcastle United football jersey he wears to a family breakfast is a reference to his support of that team. The film also shows Alastair Campbell coining the term 'the people's princess', but in 2007 he revealed that it was Tony Blair who came up with it. A notable inaccuracy is that Robin Janvrin is represented as the Queen's private secretary during the aftermath of Diana's death. In fact, that position was then occupied by Janvrin's predecessor, Sir Robert Fellowes, a brother-in-law of Diana, Princess of Wales; Janvrin was the deputy private secretary until 1999. However, the film is accurate in depicting Janvrin as the person who delivered the news of Diana's accident to the Queen at Balmoral during the nightman this is such a brilliant movie 2 watch, its got a great cast throughout this movie....man this is such a fantastic movie 2 watch, its got a great cast throughout this movie, i think that both helen mirren/ michael sheen were absolutley brilliant throughout this movie, man this is such a great movie 2 watch, its got a good soundtrack throughout this movie...man this is such a powerful drama movie 2 watch but it is such a brilliant movie 2 watch,

(jp) wrote: Behind the Mask is a brilliant low budget Slasher film that reinvents the wheel and offers genre fans something truly original to watch. Successfully combining traditional genre elements with Black Comedy, this film is a refreshing take on a classic genre of the horror medium. Filmed as a mockumentary, it follows a film crew that is documenting Leslie Vernon, a murderer who plans his revenge for what the town did to him years ago. Using Clichs to his own advantage, director Scott Glosserman crafts a movie that is an absolute must see for die hard horror fans. The mix of comedy and horror work extremely well and complement each other effectively well to create something truly memorable. The cast do a fine job in their performances, and the strength of the film lies in the fact that it can go from being pretty funny to a dark, nasty horror film that delivers the goods. That's rare for a filmmaker to do such a thing, but Glosserman does it effortlessly. The first act of the film succeeds at establishing the humor and legend and dreams of Leslie Vernon as he wants to join the greats of Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers. There are plenty of funny moments to be had in the first thirty minutes of the movie, but towards the end, the film takes a different approach and travels familiar ground and becomes a straight up Slasher film with plenty of effective kills to delight genre fans. Any fans looking for something truly original ought to check out this low budget gem, it is sure to become a classic in the genre and it brings some much needed originality to a somewhat stale genre that is overdone with remakes. Behind the Mask joins the likes of the Hatchet films and Laid to Rest movies as standout features that bring a modern twist to a classic genre.

(br) wrote: The first 15 minutes of this film are absolutely insane, I wonder what 1941's audiences felt about this one. The pace is frantic. A bit like the Marx Brothers but instead of using wit and intelligence they use an abundance of sight gags and old vaudeville tricks. It is highly entertaining and the musical numbers only add to the enjoyment. Highly recommended to fans of the Marx Brothers, Mel Brooks, the Three Stooges, or Monty Python.
(gb) wrote: Great Movie!!! Soundtrack is perfectly placed. Good old school jams. Nice transitions. This movie ties in right with the rest of the MCU with the introduction of an infinity stone. CG is elite. Cast all blend together and works well with each other. visual and comedic excellence. This movie will bring a non comic book fan into the world with little resistance.

The thickness of coral growth on the spaceship suggests that it has been there for almost 300 years. A team made up of marine biologist Dr. Beth Halperin (Sharon Stone), mathematician Dr. Harry Adams (Samuel L. Jackson), astrophysicist Dr. Ted Fielding (Liev Schreiber), psychologist Dr. Norman Goodman (Dustin Hoffman), and U.S. Navy Capt. Harold Barnes (Peter Coyote) are tasked with investigating the spaceship. The team (along with two navy technicians, Fletcher and Edmunds) are housed in a state-of-the-art underwater living environment called the Habitat during their stay on the ocean floor. Upon entering the spaceship, the team makes several discoveries. The first is that the ship is not alien, and that it is in fact an American spaceship. They assume, due to the years of coral growth and advanced technology, that the craft is from the future. The last date in the ship's log, 06/21/43, does not indicate the specific century. The last entry in the log details an "Unknown (Entry) Event", which depicts the ship apparently falling into a black hole, resulting in its trip through time. The ship's mission apparently involved gathering objects from around the galaxy to bring back to Earth. An item of particular interest is a large, perfect sphere in the cargo hold. It is suspended a few feet above the ground and has an impenetrable fluid surface which reflects its surroundings but not, for some undetermined reason, people. Harry concludes from the classification of the event which sent the ship back that the Habitat crew is fated to die: it would not have been an "unknown event" if they had lived to report about it, he reasons. Harry soon sneaks back to the spaceship, and finds a way to enter the Sphere. Soon after, a series of numeric-encoded messages begins to show up on the habitat's computer screens, and Harry and Ted are able to decipher the messages and converse with what appears to be an alien (which calls itself "Jerry"), which has been trapped in the Sphere. They soon discover that "Jerry" can hear everything they are saying aboard the Habitat. Harry's entry into the Sphere prevents the team from evacuating before the arrival of a powerful typhoon on the surface, forcing them to stay below for almost a week. A series of tragedies then befalls the crew: Fletcher is killed by aggressive jellyfish. Later, Edmunds' corpse is found drifting near the station, her body completely pulverized by what turns out to be a giant squid, which returns to attack the station. In the chaos that ensues, Barnes is cut in half by a computer-operated door, and Ted is burned to death. Sea snakes attack Norman, though he is not injured. Jerry is suspected to be the cause of these incidents. Eventually, only Harry, Norman, and Beth remain. At this point, they realize that they have all entered the world of the perfect Sphere. The Sphere has given them the power to manifest their thoughts into reality. As such, all of the disasters that had been plaguing them are the result of manifestations of the worst parts of their own minds..."Sphere" was a Box office bomb in 1998 when it came out, it grossed only $37 million at the North American box office, far below its $80 million production budget. And the critical consensus was that "Sphere features an A-level cast working with B-grade material, with a story seen previously in superior science-fiction films." In one way that criticism really hits the nail on the head, but at the same time we get this pseudo-philosophical extra terrestrial story that still asks questions that lingers in limbo and stays there after the movie is over. Is it confusing? Is it intriguing? Can our fears become real via our thoughts? Yes, yes and who knows. Dustin Hoffman didnt feel the movie was ready to be released when it was. There were many more issues that needed to be addressed but they didn't have the time to cover them all. They had to deliver what they had for the release date, which he felt was an incomplete film. This is something I can agree with, pieces just seem to be missing and Levinson doesnt tie it together. All involved (Stone, Hoffman, Schreiber, Jackson and Coyote) does their best to keep up the tension, but they need a material that works full on as well. That is not the case here. In the end we know less than we did in the beginning so it seems, not that everything needs to be explained, but this is just to lose in the plot. And in terms of environment and main story, we had already seen some similar movies like "The Abyss" (1989), "Leviathan" (1989) and "DeepStar Six" (1989) with various result. "Sphere" ends up in the middle somewhere. However, I do need to mention how extremely attractive Sharon Stone is in this one. She looks absolutely stunning in her short hair. What a beaut she is.
