Great movie,all the Tarantino usual violence but a plot + comedy.Well worth a watch.
This Movie is the best of 2013!! Absolutely hysterical!
If it wasn't for these two-sponsorship in racing wouldn't be what it is today. They changed the world I love so much! Thank you Don and Mr. McEwan!
I just saw this documentary and I resoundingly disagree with the writer's synopsis. The writer's bias is obvious and sadly, he missed the entire point.
His final sentence is critical and telling when he writes, "the religious right is grooming a young generation of virgins to embody an evangelically grounded "Utopia in America." That was NOT the point of the documentary!
Christians, Evangelicals know, beyond a doubt that Utopia could NEVER exist here on earth first of all, because we live in a world where sin exists. And, second, the Wilson family's emphasis is on a loving relationship with God for themselves then, protecting, teaching and mentoring their children on the importance of living a life that is pleasing to God.
To spread the love of God to a world that is exploding with hatred and violence is a very good thing but not, it seems, to the writer of this synopsis.
This movie is from DHX, made by the FiM team. If there's anybody on the face of the planet earth who could made this good, it is them. They've spent the past 65 episodes proving that cartoons intended for girls don't have to suck, so their track record is unimpeachable. However, there is the chance their style could not translate well to the new demographic, but I trust Jayson Thiessen's team to do well here.
Remember the old tv show? Well, this movie finally pays tribute to some of the timeless cliques of the tv show, and does them well. Thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with this movie and loved how it ended with a future and a positive spin. Word of warning, if you have any vertigo problems, hold on tight during the Dubai building scenes. lol
What a fantastic movie! Great story and great cast.
Fantastic, whimsical, dreamlike
Witty, fresh, and well acted---While the story is somewhat predictable, the actors bring real emotion and understanding to their respective roles. I enjoyed the entire story as did my husband. I'd recommend this movie to any age group. We are not teens, but I teach teenagers and found this remarkably believable.
John Cena is getting better at acting. A good dvd to watch for lunch.
This film is not what I expected. I expected to find a left-leaning film critical of Christianity and I found a basically even-handed look into how Americans deal with religion and politics. It is a compassionate look at our strengths and weaknesses.
I must not get it. I thought the movie was ticking along quite nicely until Spock (old Spock) appeared and started messing with the time-space continuum. I was lost for about 15 minutes until he disappeared, and then lost when he reappeared. I think it would have been a really good movie if the director didn't feel the need to please the fans from the past. It could have stood on its own, but sadly, missed the mark in my opinion.
This is the first time in my life that I want to warn people not to go see a movie. This movie sucked. It is a story of a story of a story. There is nothing here. It tries really hard to be of some meaning but has none. It is an insult to series like A Long Way Around and A river Runs Through it to even be mentioned. I wanted to yell at the screen a few times because it was so forced. Here is a thought, tell us where you are, where you are going. Talk about things that happen on the trip and do not force scripted stories. I want my time back, complete waste
Marriage reflects the natural moral and social law evidenced the world over. As the late British social anthropologist Joseph Daniel Unwin noted in his study of world civilizations, any society that devalued the nuclear family soon lost what he called "expansive energy," which might best be summarized as society's will to make things better for the next generation. In fact, no society that has loosened sexual morality outside of man-woman marriage has survived.
Analyzing studies of cultures spanning several thousands of years on several continents, Harvard sociologist Pitirim Sorokin found that virtually all political revolutions that brought about societal collapse were preceded by a sexual revolution in which marriage and family were devalued by the culture’s acceptance of homosexuality.
When marriage loses its unique status, women and children most frequently are the direct victims. Giving same-sex relationships or out-of-wedlock heterosexual couples the same special status and benefits as the marital bond would not be the expansion of a right but the destruction of a principle. . If the one-man/one-woman definition of marriage is broken, there is no logical stopping point for continuing the assault on marriage.
Millions of individual Americans have been celebrating our freedom by lighting off fireworks on the 4th for much of our nation's history. Today, that right is being trampled by government officials bent on ever-more control. Even here in Colorado it's now illegal to light off sky rockets, roman candles, fire crackers (I love Black Cat fire crackers), and a myriad of other fireworks. It disgusts me that government can so easily crush our freedoms,and that more Americans aren't incensed by the constant erosion of our rights.
poor angry old farts can only cry in their beers because they know the world is changing and will never again be as backwards as they remember... poor poor old farts...
"the rational thinking intelligent people will take over now"
Lemme guess: You consider yourself part of this demographic, yet can't even properly capitalize or punctuate?
Gotta love the self-absorption and faux-indignation of a geriatric, drug-addled, entitlement-dependent, nursery-school deadbeat transient that thinks she knows better than others how to conduct their lives.
This trogolodyte actually thinks that gun regs which have never worked are a magical panaces that will cure violence, but the regressives she relies upon to pay her bills and provide her thoughts and opinions on this are inept to the point of staging catered sit-ins, complete with bathroom breaks.
(I'd embellish all this, but it's perfect as it stands!)
The country is changing, and the mindless, no-info rabble sucking on the gov't teat are fizzling-out; or is Bernie gonna be the regressives nominee? LOL!
Go back under the bridge and slam some MD 20/20--we won't ask what you had to do to "earn" the bottles--then take a dip in the creek--soak your "naughty bits"--and find a nice corner to patrol for pennies.
And by all means, shoot your mouth; it'll release some of the vaccum from between your ears and give us something more to laugh at...
gotta love the certainty of the nra loving, drunken, redneck, pick-em-up truck driving, high school drop out, gun nuts about gun regulations. these nimrods truly think that the clueless teabaggers running the show now will be around in 6 months. the country is changing and the redneck and religious freak period is over. the rational thinking intelligent people will take over now. now go back to your double wide and drink a 40 oz. and get mad that you don't have a good job. shoot your guns... maybe it will help you feel better about yourself.
