The Magnificent Yankee torrent reviews

James P (it) wrote: My three and six year old daughters adored this film. I got tearful and sentimental on occasion too. Such a lovely film to take the family to, grab your popcorn and take a seat into adorable cuteness.

Jordan P (ag) wrote: With just enough gut-wrenching suspense to anchor the extensive spectacle of a giant monster smashing everything in sight, Cloverfield puts a clever spin on monster movie tropes with a refreshing found-footage perspective, a brisk pace and affecting performances from a terrific cast.

Juan G (au) wrote: Nice little indie film I didn't know what i was about to watch at first. The movie is very honest on itself, and has some good intense dialoge in some scenes. all in all not for everyone but unique for some ;)

Jesse F (us) wrote: It's very visible that director Dahl is influenced by Hitchcock's brilliance and it pays off beautifully.

Tim G (fr) wrote: I was drowsy, otherwise I may have gotten more out of it. Works pretty well as both funny and scary.

Jimmy W (mx) wrote: one of the worst movies i've ever seen. pretty sad with a pretty good cast.

James B (ca) wrote: Really absorbing and different plot. Well worth a look

Eric J (kr) wrote: One of the most real and poignant WWII Interment camp pictures i have seen. Right up there with "Empire of the Sun". Excellent performances by a diverse cast.

Stephen E (nl) wrote: Todd Solondz knows how to tell it like it is. "Welcome to the Dollhouse" is a stark look at middle school life centered on unpopular outcast Dawn "Wiener Dog" Wiener and her misfortunes, which range from chasing after a high school crush to getting her little sister kidnapped by a pederast. The acting from Heath Matazarro is exceptional; her character isn't likable as much as she is easy to relate to, and she gives possibly one of the best debut performances ever. Solondz has a way of showing how oblivious, manipulative and pathetic some people are and how quick they are able to turn on each other, and he does so by making each scenario darkly hilarious. "Welcome to the Dollhouse" is an uncomfortable viewing mostly because it brings back unfortunate memories, but it's a very funny, well-written and relatively honest motion picture.

Thomas H (fr) wrote: Enjoyable film with some brilliant performances.

Wendy G (kr) wrote: I remember this movie from when I was very young (I'm 30 now) the unfortunate thing about people reviewing this movie is that most will hold it to todays standard of children film. That is quite unfair. Movies that are this old should be compared with other movies and the film quality of the time it was made. now this movie was made in 1971 that alone puts it after Disney, so we should stop comparing it to Mary Poppins, a film which Disney in large part had a hand in making. As for the music well that honestly is judged from personal preference to personal preference. I watched it somewhat recently and viewed it as charming in some of the scores and others I will admit to be a tad long winded, but then again I like songs that are more fast pace than what many musicals do. My favorite song is still the song and dance number on Portabelo Road, as it was when I was little. Lol I can still hum it. The thing that was still new and many films that catered to children had animation and live action spliced together. I always find this amazing in old movies because today it's far to easy to do, anyone who halfway decent with a camera and computer can do it. Back then however that took real skill. Finally many people complain about the film quality. Honestly now even Marry Poppins has bad film quality by todays standard. Sorry if I bothered anyone with my post. I enjoyed this film as a child and just felt it was being treated unfairly due to ignorance and lack of consideration of facts. So please forgive my biased nature.
