I watched the film after reading some reviews. and the one person wrote a negative review. And i was actually surprised at the comments it was getting. The film has a lot of positives and negative points. If you don't want to get involved into the subject, don't watch it. But if you are going to watch it, you should see it for yourself. It is interesting how people feel about the movie. Some people say it is great, some say it is good. But what they are saying is very different. If you have some respect for your enemy, you should not judge this film. I personally am not a big fan of Christian Bale. I found him annoying and flat. But the guy really blew me away with this one. It is a shame his acting skills are wasted in a movie like this. The other characters also had good performances. The music was also excellent. But that's the only reason i gave it a 9. So don't watch it if you hate Bale, because he's not in it for a long time. And watch it if you are interested in the subject.

I'm not going to write a lot about this movie, just a few words about what it is and how it's possible to achieve this level of excellence in a single film. The photography is magnificent and the acting is strong. From the very beginning it is clear that this movie is going to have a wide appeal. Everyone should see this film, it will leave you feeling inspired and humbled. The cinematography is breathtaking and the music is superb. The film is very emotional, and even though it is an incredible story and story telling, it is also one of the best movies I've ever seen.

A terrific and gritty look at the French world cup rugby, this documentary is a rare opportunity to get an inside look at the political and logistical aspects of the event. It does so well, and provides the viewer with an opportunity to learn more about the people involved in the event. I would recommend watching it.

This documentary is about a child prodigy who became the fastest skater in the world at age 8 and has never stopped skater ever since. This is a true story and the life of a very unique individual. The documentary shows a typical life of the young boy, his family, his friends, his passion for skaters and the struggles of him being an immigrant in America. It also shows the hurdles that he had to overcome in order to win the Olympic gold medal. Overall this documentary is a great insight into the life of a young boy who did not have any good luck and was put on a path to success. This documentary is an insight into the life of a young boy who was just a normal kid in a normal life. The documentary makes you feel for him and his family. I highly recommend this documentary and watch it.

I went to see this movie last night. I was a bit apprehensive of going because I was looking forward to watching an old "Star Wars" movie. I came out of the movie theater thinking, "This is the worst Star Wars movie ever." In my opinion, this is the worst Star Wars movie ever. There are some good parts of the movie but the ending was disappointing. The characters and story are good, but the ending is the one thing that didn't make sense. I could have lived with a few hours of this movie but I couldn't take the ending. I would not recommend this movie to anyone.

I saw this movie on the big screen with my fiance and I thought it was very good. The only reason it didn't get a lot of attention is that it is a great story about how many of the men in the American military are "starving for war" and are willing to "waste" their lives for it. It was great to see the veterans telling their stories and some of the stories were even touching. This movie was more about the American people then the veterans and their stories were very inspiring. The movie was very accurate and showed us what a "starvation" was like and what it was like to have to "waste" your life for the country that you love. I thought it was very well done and it made me want to go back and see it again. This movie will definitely stay in my mind for a long time.

This documentary was an amazing accomplishment. I wish more people would take time to view it. I loved how they connected the movie with the story. They showed the world of roller derby from the inside of the league. I am definitely planning on going to a league game in October. That being said, this documentary is definitely worth seeing. I hope to see more documentaries like this to come out. I would love to see a documentary on the interracial dating in the locker room and the culture of roller derby. I also hope to see a documentary on roller derby's roots. I am very interested in seeing roller derby get a TV show on cable. A lot of people have been watching roller derby's roots and history.

With so many mediocre films out there, it's hard to find something worthwhile. The documentary looks at the life of a group of athletes who live their lives the way they want to live them, without the approval of the professional team. This is the kind of film that takes you into a life that you would have never known, and makes you laugh and cry. It's a great film to see if you're looking for a light-hearted film with a positive message. It doesn't force any one kind of thinking, it lets you make up your own mind. It also shows you the raw emotions of a group of people who want to play professional sports, but there is no team to support them. It's sad, but you can't help but to feel for the people who want to play pro sports, and the sacrifices they have to make to live their lives. You'll laugh, and you'll cry, and you'll think about the choices that you've made. There are a few problems with this film. It seems like it's mostly from the perspective of the athletes, which is fine, but sometimes it feels a little repetitive. The people involved with the documentary aren't particularly well-known, and you don't really get the sense of the conversations that the athletes had. However, it's an extremely well-made documentary, and I highly recommend it.

I like to view the Olympics in a broader perspective, not just the swimming and athletics events. I see the Olympics as a celebration of the human spirit, of courage and perseverance. In this documentary, a mother of a young boy named Eric (Ewan McGregor) decides to donate the heart of her son to save Eric's life. While she is at the hospital, her husband and a doctor are discussing Eric's heart. They seem surprised at her decision. Eric's heart is a 9 year old girl. There is a 12 year old girl who is also in the hospital. The mother is adamant that Eric's heart be given to Eric. She feels that Eric would be happier with a different heart. This is a struggle to the doctors and to Eric. Her parents are also discussing the potential of Eric's heart being used in an operation for a limb. Eric is told by his doctor that his heart has been donated to someone else. The doctor is incredulous. Eric's parents are not convinced. They are disappointed that Eric's heart is being used in an operation for a limb. After they feel their hearts are not being given to Eric, they decide to donate the heart to Eric. This is where the documentary begins. I really enjoyed this film. I would recommend it to anyone. I think it is a great documentary. It talks about the competition and the preparation for the competition. It also talks about how the families of those who donate their hearts are treated.

There are two movie genres that seem to dominate every other director's filmography: the violent, action-packed, genre and the drama, character-driven genre. Nowadays, most of the directors specializing in the former group would be seen in the top ten of the latter, but that is not necessarily a good thing. There are many films out there, that are actually in the latter category, but rarely are they nominated for the Academy Awards. The big names in the drama/action genre would include George Clooney, Matt Damon, Michael Douglas, and the three "Irish" hunk brothers: Hugh Grant, Sean Penn, and Alec Baldwin. (This is probably one of the most popular films of all time, and one of the best film genres). However, "Syriana" does not fit into this category. The movie begins with a deep analysis of the current American foreign policy, how America would like to see the world become. This is not necessarily a bad thing. The documentary style of the film can be described as a great idea. The strong focus on the world's top oil and gas companies are interesting, and this does not prevent this film from becoming a very enjoyable piece of cinema. The movie does not contain any heavy historical or social commentary, and the director does not try to include any political statement into his film. The film will be shown as an alternative to any major Hollywood film. This is a very good thing. I believe that the people involved with the film are doing their best to show that this is not the case. It will be interesting to see how they make the documentary style film, and what direction the story takes. The acting is very good. Some of the performances, which are not big names, have very good performances. Jennifer Connelly, and the two brothers, Hugh Grant and Sean Penn, are very good in their roles. I believe that both Hugh Grant and Sean Penn are at the top of their game. The story line is very strong, and the film does not waste any time in telling the story. The director does not try to fit the film into any genre, and the way that the story is told is very unique. The documentary style of the film is a very good idea, and it is one of the reasons why this film is a very good movie. I believe that this is a great film, and it is a film that will continue to be a great film for many years to come. "Syriana" is a very enjoyable film, and it deserves the nomination for Best Documentary/Non-Fiction film.

I agree with the previous reviewer's description of the "The Monks" being quite interesting. I was lucky enough to see the film and although I liked the movie, I didn't feel the same way that I did when I saw the original. It seems that the movie didn't bring out the same feelings I had for the original film. For me, the feel and feeling of the original is that of a time when a group of people were living in a place that could have existed but was never really touched by modern society. The feel and feeling of the modern day is that of a world where it is too easy to be careless and not to take the right steps to make sure that you and your loved ones are taken care of. I don't think that I would have cared so much about the story if it had been about some previous monastic order and I think that it is interesting that they're making a film that deals with a story that could have been told in such a way. I can't help but wonder whether there are any other monastic orders out there that might have looked at the current situation of the modern day and their place in it and had the same feelings about the film that I did. I have my own story of when I was about to join a monastery and I think that there is a story to tell in that case. I wonder whether the film-makers have had a chance to look at the situation in the modern day and have the same feelings that I have. But I know that it isn't possible to tell the story as it was, because that story would have to be told through words. Perhaps the film-makers have tried to tell the story as it was told but in the end, it's as if they didn't know what to say.

The documentary is about a lot of things, but in particular it focuses on the importance of the training of Japanese women for sports. This documentary deals with the history of women's sports in Japan and the training and training techniques that were used. This documentary is great for someone who is interested in women's sports in general or Japanese women's sports specifically. If you are interested in Japanese women's sports in general or Japanese women's sports specifically, then this documentary is for you.

I love the fact that we are brought up with the positive aspects of football and the mentality that is required to be a winner. This film is an excellent addition to the high school football experience and shows the struggles that our young people face with having to be strong and yet to be able to reach that goal. The performances were great, especially James Marsters as Bessie, and I liked that he made an effort to stand up for himself, as well as others. I am very glad that this film is finally available, and that it was made available on the web.

A documentary about one of the most notorious women in the history of sport. The story is told from her point of view and it is not all that bad. It is one of those documentaries that you see in a pub, it is not too boring. So, what is the problem with it? Well, I'm not sure what exactly to say. First of all, the story does not really tell anything new about the story. We are aware of it but what else can you expect from a documentary about a girl who won a gold medal for the US. There are no revelations in the story and it doesn't really tell anything new. I mean, it is true that the story is pretty old, but it is also true that there are so many women in history who have made very little impact on their sporting career. So, the fact that the documentary is not really a documentary, does not really bother me, because this does not really matter, because it is a really good documentary about a really important story.

this movie was a great film to watch on the couch with your friends, you can learn a lot from the crew that was behind this film. The directors and crew were very professional and helped to improve the film tremendously. I would recommend this film to any aspiring filmmakers out there. i love the music in the movie and how the directors used different types of music and the amount of music they had to include in the film, it really helped to enhance the movie. I think that the movie could have been better if they had been more creative and changed up the music and added a little more romance to the movie. Overall this is a great movie and will certainly be a classic for years to come, i recommend everyone to watch this film and learn a little bit more about the world of documentaries. I think that this is a great documentary and definitely a must see.

This is a great documentary for all fans of golf. As much as the subject matter was for the first four movies, this one is for the 5th. The people involved with the film are great. The "spin" is good but there is no spin here. The only one who shines is Brian Duford, and he is brilliant. It is not hard to believe that he played golf at a professional level as a youngster. My only real complaint is that it was a little long. The first forty minutes or so is a little boring and kind of meaningless. The film moves a little too fast and at times it does drag a little. The final few minutes though are very good. The "spin" is good, but I think the last few shots are a little too slow and too long. I really liked this documentary and am glad I saw it.

My initial reaction to this film was a slight trepidation. A mother's story, such as the one that the film is based upon, is usually somewhat more interesting than the actual subject of the story. I was not prepared to see the completely unbelievable nature of the players in this game. The mother was not real, and the players were not real. The film was interesting enough, and the interview with the parents was touching, but the film lacked the drama that is needed in the story. This film is not a documentary, but it is a story. It was a good film, but could have been better. The only reason to see it is to see how much trouble the mother has in her life. Not much else. I would have much preferred to have seen the real stories behind the players in this film.

As a longtime champion of the sport, I watched this film with a bit of trepidation. I'd been watching it on cable, but I didn't want to spend money on a rental. But, on the DVD, I was actually pleasantly surprised. The story was interesting, and the amount of information on the sport was excellent. I had never heard of the Rock's real-life story before watching this film. The film really gives you a picture of how the Rock grew up in wrestling, and how he got involved in the sport. It was a great story, and the director made the film extremely realistic. I was also impressed with the cast. I was very impressed with Vinnie Jones' performance, especially because he's not known for much. He gives a very good performance, and I think it's one of the best roles he's done. I also think it was very interesting to see the Rock's family. He and his wife have a very good relationship, and I think that's a great way to portray the relationship between wrestlers and their families. This film does a great job of showing the ups and downs of the sport, and it does a great job of showing the hard work that the wrestlers have to go through to keep their jobs. Overall, I thought this film was very good. It's very realistic, and it gives you a great picture of how the sport is. I would recommend this film to anyone who is into wrestling.

A documentary that follows the game of golf at the C.W.A. International Golf Academy in Las Vegas, Nevada. The film follows the adventures of three girls from different walks of life. I found the way the film was shot very interesting, with a lot of in-depth footage. The film made me feel as if I was at the course as they do. I don't know how well it was shot, but I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in the sport of golf. It is definitely worth seeing.

The documentary "How to Train Your Dragon 2" features interviews with Director and Screenwriter Dean DeBlois and the cast and crew, but doesn't do much to further the plot. It covers the basics of the story, including the origin of the dragon and his relationship with human boy. Unfortunately the story doesn't go much deeper than that. It does focus on the characters, and there are some great moments with them. The dragon looks great, though. The CGI is fantastic, and the music is great. The cinematography is great, and there is some interesting use of practical effects. The action sequences are well done, though not up to the level of the first film. The biggest problem is that the film doesn't really go anywhere. It seems to go from one story to another, and not much else is explored. If you're looking for a lot more from this film, there are much better documentaries out there, but this is only worth watching if you are a fan of the first film.

This is a great documentary on the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. The whole world watched the games for the first time and the closing ceremonies are just as epic as the closing ceremony at the stadium. The story is as simple as it gets, but the main character is just awesome. As you watch, you learn about her life and the problems she had growing up. You see how much she loves and how much she loves to work out. You see the beauty of the athletes, how it made her realize that she can be anything. There are some great scenes of them going to their rooms and lying on the couch. There are also some great parts of her family and friends. It is so inspiring to watch. But the film is more than just a documentary. The documentary was actually written by someone who knew her. You get to see some of her favorite things, like her dogs, her collection of family pictures, and her favorite poems. It is just a great film. I give this movie an 9/10. You will enjoy this movie.

I really enjoyed this documentary. I felt like I was a kid again. The interviews were so real and I felt like I was watching this documentary again. There was so much emotion and passion that you can feel from everyone that was involved in the making of this documentary. The story is great and so much information was left out and that's a good thing. Overall, I loved this documentary. I recommend it to anyone.

The documentary, The First Widow, by the director, Lynne Christensen, is a chronicle of the life of Mary Ann Moon. It is the story of a dedicated woman, who after her husband committed suicide, became a single mother, and became the first widow in the history of the United States. What made her unique was that she had a very strong faith. The first widow was a woman who loved her family and her husband and she wanted to be loved and accepted. She did not want her husband to be remembered only for his crimes. She wanted to be remembered for all that she had done. The documentary is a well-made and well-directed documentary. It is well-written and well-edited. The director has done a wonderful job and I look forward to the next one. This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It is a good way to show the people behind the documentary.

This documentary looks at the life of the legend of swimming in Brazil. The first half is in English, the second half is in Portuguese. The two main parts are about the men's and women's teams, and about the past, present, and future of the sport. It also looks at the TV show, which was filmed for the Olympics, and has special features. Overall, it's a really nice documentary.
