On the set of Cleopatra, Hollywood's most beautiful star, Elizabeth Taylor, fell into the arms of one of the world's greatest actors, Richard Burton - and she didn't leave. Their subsequent white-hot, scandalous love affair gave rise to the paparazzi and they became the most hunted and photographed couple on earth. Their rocky, passionate, relationship, born in front of the cameras, was subsequently captured in a series of films, including The V.I.P.s and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The last of the great, extravagant stars, flaunting diamonds, yachts and private planes, they continually seized the headlines. They even divorced and married again - only to divorce again - but remain in each other's hearts. This Elizabeth Taylor - Richard Burton story is a no-holds barred account of their undying, but impossible love.

The overall science/ history behind the watch was very disappointing to begin with, it's not a disney movie so it should be somewhat realistic. However the villain is the show stealer, watch it for him only! His return back in time is the only good thing by the end. The fact that everything that happened in the story doesn't exist is quite disappointing. The romance parts were useless and boring and comedy was disappointing.

Sean L (ag) wrote: Young Will Shakespeare, suffering a bout of writer's block, happens across an intense love and draws inspiration for new material from the whirlwind romance. For a best picture winner, this is awfully mediocre stuff. The plot is simplistic and over-familiar, the acting merely acceptable, and the constant nods and winks to the budding auteur's work quickly grows excessive and wearying. Gwyneth Paltrow and Joseph Fiennes are attractive people and make convincing googly eyes at one another, but their relationship is so swift and passion-fueled that it never feels like more than a fiery seasonal fling. Judi Dench took home a best supporting actress statue for her work as Queen Elizabeth I, though she barely makes a cameo appearance and most of her work seems done by the wardrobe department. Irritatingly blunt at times, particularly when it tries its hand at comedy, I appreciate the freshness of the concept if not its flimsy, dated execution.

Gould and Blake are perfect as the two cops, whom are just crazy enough to go after the kingpin by themselves. This is a strong script with some fantastic banter between the two of them. Peter Hyams does some interesting things visually, with some very cool long takes/tracking shots that are really quite impressive. The ending of the film is fantastic and really does hit home.

I've never seen such ludicrousness, in a poor attempt, to turn a simple little game called hockey, as part of a solution to end the cold war- that'll be the day. The movie takes place sometime during the year of 1981, and Jimmy Carter was the President Of The United States, and the movie was implying that much of the other countries was hostile because of the Iranian hostage kidnapping of several Americans- via "Argo". Herb Brooks (Kurt Russell) has just been announced as the coach of the US hockey team, and the movie dwells on the heartbreaking choice he had to make, selecting only 20 best out of 27. I've never witnessed such cheap calls for sentimentalism, until I had saw this film. Viewers also get to witness how this affects their families and so forth. I mean, do I really need to say anymore. You know, the thing I want to say, is that part of the reason why Russia has won so many gold medals in the sport of hockey, is the fact that it's under Communism rule, making the point that much of the general Russian public are not in the best financial situation in comparison to, let's say the US, and that the entire environment itself had always been kinda icy cold- including Sweden and Canada for that matter- pointing out that, hockey is perhaps the only sports game those countries had ever played as long as they have the weather for it. For the US, it's going to have to be, and always will be American football- for hockey had never been a popular sport amongst Americans when they're others that are much more popular. For a movie that's more than 2 hours long, I've never seen such obviousness, such as when the players were jabbering about the good looking girls on the stand, when they should be focusing on the game. And then with all of those inspirational speeches and lectures we're always subjected to hear, everyone has to hear them no matter what sport you're in- it's all so "routine" that it gets way to tired after awhile. If I want to watch something like this, I'll either check out the documentaries, like "Hoop Dreams", or just tune on to my local sports channel, thank you very much. For, I don't need to see something that's made up and acted, when I can actually witness and see the actual thing. 1 star out of 4 stars
