Walk the Line (2005) For those that are unfamiliar with the story of Johnny Cash and June Carter, "Walk the Line" is it.  There is so much to cover in their stories that the film could have gone on for a lot longer than it does.  And while material was certainly cut to create a more suitable runtime, the filmmakers have done a tremendous job bringing their story to the big screen. "Walk the Line" covers Cash's rise to fame and the stereotypical, downward effects that stardom has on Cash.  Primarily the film is based on the relationship of Cash and Carter.  Ever since he was a boy Cash had a fondness for Carter.  In his adulthood their lives intersect.  The film portrays their relationship as a lot of cat and mouse games.  Ultimately their relationship suffers do to Cash's drug addiction and basic behavior ...

Fame (Extended Dance Edition) (2009) "Fame" was a moderate success in 1980.  It seems as though the film was a bit too early for its time as flashdancing hadn't quite taken a hold, and now the remake in 2009 seems a bit too late.  The film can't find the balance between the modern age and still paying respect to the film of two decades ago. "Fame" is kind of similar to "Rent."  While "Rent" was primarily song, "Fame" is both dance and song.  This remake is so cliché that its picture could be put next to the word in the dictionary.  It is about living your dreams and overcoming all obstacles, yada yada yada.  Except for a couple of happening scenes, the film is a snooze fest.  There is nothing to keep you interested. The film opens with audition day, introducing us to the characters we are ...

Hannah Montana The Movie (2009) I probably stand alone amongst the critics in actually liking this movie.  It has routinely received less than two and one half stars from critics since its release.  I for one found it to be entertaining and carefree, things that I find are missing for programming nowadays.  The film didn't do as well at the box office as expected, grossing slightly less than $80 million.  Still, with a spent budget of $30 million, who can really complain? "Hannah Montana The Movie" is Disney's feature film attempt at the hit Disney Channel TV show, "Hannah Montana."  Much like "High School Musical 3: Senior Year," this film raises its production value.  Hannah Montana is a major pop star that is really the alter ego of Miley Stewart (both played by Miley Cyrus).  Or is it the other way around.  It seems that lately ...

Grease (Rockin' Rydell Edition) (1978) "Grease" was just slightly before my time, but that gives me an interesting point of view.  I hear people talk about how wonderful the film is.  Having watched the film after the initial theatrical release buzz past, I can say that those people are looking at the film through rose-colored glasses.  Don't get me wrong.  The film is not terrible, but it does not flow well. Nonetheless, "Grease" was one of the first rock musicals transformed from the stage to the screen, and for that, it deserves special recognition.  The film contains some great musical numbers and a simply story.  Beyond that, there isn't much to this film. For its time, the film's story was probably unique.  However, nowadays, the story is immensely overdone.  The fact that a boy can't get over his ego and pride to be with a girl is ...

Amadeus (Director's Cut) Back in the 18th and 19th centuries, popular classical composers were the rock stars of their day, often reaping vast monetary rewards and winning the admiration of everyone from peasants to kings.  Many were hopelessly highbrow, but Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart embraced the role – he partied, spent frivolously, and died young under mysterious circumstances.  'Amadeus' may perpetuate the legends and myths that swirl about this musical icon, but Milos Forman's adaptation of Peter Shaffer's mesmerizing Broadway play honors the composer's genius so completely, anyone who sees  this Oscar-winning work will take away one primary emotion – awe. And that's just what rival composer Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham) feels when he first meets Mozart (Tom Hulce) at the court of Austria's emperor, Joseph II (Jeffrey Jones).  Salieri's dream is to create music the masses will revere both in his lifetime and ...
