Grant S (nl) wrote: Interesting...up to a point.A documentary on the lives of David and Jackie Siegel. He is the founder and owner of Westgate Resorts, the largest timeshare resort company in the world and she is his wife. Focuses more on her (hence the title): her rise from humble beginnings to the wife of a billionaire, the palatial house they were building ("Versailles", after the French palace) and then the problems they and the company faced in the wake of the GFC. Quite interesting for about the first half. You see her humble beginnings, how he made his fortune and his plans for his company. You also see how the GFC turned everything upside down, how the banks, despite government bailouts, did their best to undermine their own debtors and seemed more interested in claiming their assets than receiving debt payments. It is an interesting study in how to make and lose a fortune, the consequences of the GFC and the unscrupulous practices of the banks (ironically, the same organisations who caused the GFC).With these points made, however, the movie seems to run out of things to say. It drifts for the latter half. About the only interesting observation from then on is how she is unable to adjust to a much-diminished budget (even just having a budget would have been foreign to her). This creates a strain in the household, as he is desperately trying to cut costs.The latter half does reduce the empathy one has for the characters, especially Jackie. In the first half they seemed reasonably normal, despite their wealth. It is in the second half she loses our engagement by behaving rather arrogantly.Overall: worth watching, but it does feel like a drag in the second half.

Norm d (ag) wrote: If the Academy Awards had a Best Picture category for "Best Picture, Youth & Family," this would win, hands down. Based on the acclaimed book, the film, according to the author, captures the story & spirit of it. The screenplay was co-written by her son - and the story actually has its origins with him. The uncompressed 5.1 soundtrack & effects on the Bluray are superb. Recommend this as one of Disney's best - like (but different from) "Enchanted" and "Inside Out." ("Bridge" is not animation tho' there are some effects.) Reminds a bit of Tim Burton's wonderful "Big Fish" tho' that picture is adult oriented. "Bridge" is for older kids and - relax & let go - the kid in all of us. Wonderful.

nika k (ca) wrote: Remember when vampires rose up at night and killed infants and cause illnesses and raped women (or sometimes men)? Remember when they were scary? Sadly, during my lifetime the majority of vampires the screen had to offer were romantic heroes, oh they were undead and drank blood, but all of that was unimportant because what mattered to them was to find their one true love (I'm looking at you, Coppola). Then, for some unimaginable reason, a few people on the BBC had an interesting and, dare I say, revolutionary idea: to make an inhuman vampire. The film follows the usual story, but with a slight twist. Arthur Holmwood is infected with hereditary syphilis (how he could have lived for so long without having any symptoms is a question) and in despair contacts some cultists, who have been worshipping Dracula (without the vampire knowing of it, I suspect). The leader of the cult, Singleton, promises Holmwood freedom from the illness telling him that if he was transfused with Dracula's immortal blood then nothing would ever touch him, in exchange Arthur must buy the properties around London and give them to Dracula. I have to say that I liked how the story had been taken back to its roots, this is after all a monster we are dealing with. The syphilis idea, while raises some questions, is still nice because it lets us see a man in a hopeless situation, how everything around him is suddenly falling to pieces. There was also a nice use of filters, so the audience got a bit more than the usual blue. Overall the film looks pretty and one doesn't have to remind oneself that if it was real life then they wouldn't look so clean and shiny, because they don't and it's refreshing. Effects were used to a minimum, (if it doesn't make sense then don't do it, I always say) mostly putting in short clips of footage to get the point across. As far as actors go, this will probably be the most disappointing bit. The actors seem weak and everyone can tell that even David Suchet is just having fun. One the other hand the actors are playing it "down to earth", as it were, when Mina Harker starts crying then she doesn't have dainty Hollywood tears she has proper sobs, with lip quivering and chin going into a rather nasty shape and her mumblings are a bit hard to understand -- realistic crying, believable and something the pampered audience might react to negatively at first. The one who does fill his role is Marc Warren, in anyone else's hands the blood drinking monster would have been too nice, too civil, too human. Even when Dracula speaks you get the feeling that he has learned all the words but quite doesn't understand what they mean, which is logical because these are human words and he hasn't been human for a very very long time. As he rips a man's head off Dracula stares at the audience with big innocent eyes. Anyone looking for something a bit different and who hasn't yet comepletely gone off vampires is welcome to this. While a matter of taste, it is certainly intriguing even to the lovers of romantical variation on the upirs.
