But the thing about all the movies I just mentioned, none of them were top-five grossing movies of the year like Cocoon was. This would be like Fast & Furious 7 being impossible to find in the future.
The movie said 'comedy', 'drama', and 'romance'. I would strike out the comedy part, because the movie isn't really all that funny, though drama and romance holds true. I was expecting it to be a laugh-out-funny type of movie, but it wasn't, but I wasn't disappointed with the movie either.John C. Reilly was so amazing in this movie, and I thought he was so well-cast for the role of John. There was just something about his acting that really made his character stand out like someone you could relate to, someone that had the same things going on as you do yourself. And that was really good acting. Marisa Tomei also did a good job with her role of Molly. However, playing opposite of Reilly, Jonah Hill, in the role of Cyrus, did a good job as well. There was really some chemistry and tension brewing between John and Cyrus, and the two actors made that seem very real and believable.The movie isn't a fast paced one, but it gets to where it needs to be without being a drag or boring. And I found the story told here to be quite captivating and compelling. And it was really a story that you could sink yourself into. I am sure everyone could see a little of themselves in one or more of the characters in the movie.Now what really ticked me off about the movie was the camera, with the constant panning back and forth, zooming and going back out. It seemed like the camera man was operating a camera for the very first time in his life. It was like a tourist video from some Thai resort. It was annoying and frustrating to look at. And it dragged the movie experience down a notch for me.If you like movies with real life drama in it, then \"Cyrus\" is definitely worth checking out, because it is so beautifully acted. You just have to get past the constant fumbling with the camera zoom button.And it was my first acquaintance with Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass movies, and this one was actually a rather good movie. So hats off to you gentlemen for bringing us a movie of this caliber.
ExtraTorrent used to be famous for its early movie releases, which helped the website reach worldwide popularity. However, that success came at a cost, forcing ExtraTorrent to \"go underground.\" It now relies on a special client to download files, which comes premium priced.
I read Mysterious Island as a child many years ago and I remember being fascinated by it. This version might be OK as a family evening to pass the time -- there is no foul language, no nudity, barely a hint of a romantic relationship with one kiss.However as entertainment for adults it fails on every level. As many have mentioned, the special effects are not special at all, the dialogue is stilted, the acting for most of the cast is charitably mediocre, and the plot elements come across as contrived. And it is long, without good timing.Apparently the director decided that this timeless classic novel needed a major rewrite to pass muster in the new millennium. Two woman are thrown in as major characters; the younger manages a new wardrobe almost daily, and neither have so much as their hair mussed for more than five minutes, despite fighting off pirates, giant ants, sea monsters and what have you. They manage to build a house inside a nice clean cave with amenities that probably rival those available to a typical country cottage in the 30s. I was almost surprised that they didn't manage a washing machine. Smokeless fires conveniently illuminate the giant cave better than track lighting. Everyone in the main party manages to be fresh scrubbed and well groomed at all times.The pirates are like the Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyworld, highly stereotyped caricatures. At least the Pirate Captain is entertainingly bombastic, but realism has definitely been left marooned on the shore somewhere.Nothing even approaches being frightening, or intriguing. For a movie for those interested in Verne's work or a well told adventure tale, this is a waste of time. 1e1e36bf2d
