It's a little preachy for my tastes.

I just finished watching it...

I loved the writing and the acting was really good, but I didn't care for the editing and framing device. It just felt clunky and episodic. It took away from the movie rather than added to it.

It's not a bad movie. Or a good movie. It's just okay.

At no point did I feel like I wanted to be somewhere else and I doubt I'll remember it much a couple of years for now.

It passed the afternoon okay.

This is a documentary showcasing bad science and how confirmation bias keeps you believing in whatever.

$1,200 for a possum? Man, they were pulling Errol's leg.

Still, great documentary. You just want to meet these people and hear more stories from them.

It's like a Wes Anderson movie that's been stripped of all it's over-twee'd veneer. The humor, the quirky characters, and the Americana is still there, but it's gritty and real.

This might have been interesting as a serious western, but it's just too goofy and ridiculous. I love Sam Raimi, but he was the wrong director for this. Also Sharon Stone was miscast. And Leonardo DiCaprio is way too goofy. Just.. re-start from scratch and keep Russel Crowe.

Chaplin without a mustache is such an eerie surreal sight.

So weird. This movie inspired 4 series that I love (Mystery Science Theater 3000, Red Dwarf, Battlestar Galactica, and Star Wars), but I just didn't enjoy it that much.

This isn't in the pantheon of greatest animated kids movies. But it's not horrible either. A perfectly fine C+ to B- movie.

Good casting, impressive soundtrack, and manages some good chuckles here and there.

If you have kids, you know there is much worse stuff out there.

This could have been interesting, but Ridley Scott's heart didn't seem to be into it.

It feels like a new ending was very clumsily tacked on. spoiler

Great movie, but why is the aspect ratio so bad?

Some of the racist comments in Africa hit the ear pretty hard, but you just have to accept that it's a product of it's time.

I really enjoyed this. There are so many little touches and reference nods to the past that it creates an incredibly believable tableau. The acting felt a little uneven at times, but the music and heart more than make up for it.

The ending was great except spoiler

It's amazing to watch this movie and and see how so many films were influenced by and/or pay homage to it. That's what makes it a classic.

Sorry wowwee123, I don't think that's the right link. It's way too modern to be an 1890s print.

It's a Bill Murray tour de force / cult of personality affair, but also this movie is surprisingly sweet and well grounded in reality.

Pretty faithful adaptation of the novel, which made it pretty fun to watch and see the actors' interpretations of the characters.
