More than a story-bound movie, this movie did a reality check with all of us vis-a-vis the current time we're living in.Screenplay, direction, performances, and above all the music and lyrics of the movie are way above the norms and standards of Indian cinema.The dialogues are fantastic! Layered with dark humor and cynical take on the democratic set up! This is fabulous stuff! Stuff that even classics aspire to be!

(gb) wrote: an impressively accurate homage of early Hollywood romantic comedies. It captures the tone and scene of humor and is more funny then some of the "classics". I also like how there were jokes that would have worked at the time and some jokes making fun of the time. Zellwiger and McGregor fit into these roles well. Not must see but not bad.

(br) wrote: An enchanting movie for children, so beautiful in its wonderful simplicity, innocence and sweetness that it feels like almost impossible not to be touched by such an adorable story devoid of clichs and with no need to rely on villains or contrived conflicts.
(mx) wrote: Slaughterhouse-five, a 1972 film directed by George Roy Hill (who also directed the Sundance Kid in 1969) is based on the novel by Kurt Vonnegut. In my opinion, I think the film follows the novel well by how it is a first person narrative from the main character, Billy Pilgrim who is played by Michael Sacks. It shows how he time travels from past, present and future. While watching the film, we experience Billy getting unstuck in time and going through events in his life in a weird order. Some main events that Billy Pilgrim goes through are in his past is when he is in World War II as a soldier and experience time in a prison with Edgar Derby and Pail Lazzaro. In the present time, he is a middle age man married to his wife Valencia Merble Pilgrim and also a father to Barbara and Robert. In the future, he gets abducted by aliens and gets trapped in a planet called Tralfamadore with the Hollywood star Montana Wildhack. Contrasting the film to the novel, I have to dislike that the film did not show any signs of Kurt Vonnegut present as the novel did. But George Roy Hill created visual scenes by using sound and color that the novel could not do. In addition, by reading the novel first, then watching the movie I realize that George Roy Hill cut out the first and last chapters of the novel out of the film. In the beginning it jumped to when Billy's daughter is banging on the front of his door. In the film there were no scenes of Kurt Vonnegut, which I really disliked. I feel like for first time viewers of the movie that did not read the book, it might have been hard to follow. To understand the film, in my opinion, you have to follow very closely to every detail. Also, I feel like the director did a moderate job of developing the character throughout him time traveling. The acting was not bad, but I would not say that it was great either. But in all, George Roy Hill did a wonderful job with the film compared to the novel and kept the viewers interested in the story and the characters as well.

If you'd told me a year ago that Robert Wise, of West Side Story and The Sound of Music fame, had directed a great boxing film, I wouldn't have believed you. Turns out he did two of them. I think Somebody Up There Likes Me is slightly better, or perhaps I just liked it more. The Set-Up, regardless, is a perfect technical exercise that also has a lot of heart. Probably Robert Ryan's finest performance, at least that I've seen. I love films that play out in real-time, and this is no exception.
