Before I start I just want to say that I have watched all the films I have watched before and there are only a few that I haven't seen. I have however watched this movie and it is by far my favourite film of all time. I could go on for hours on this film and I do not want to do that but I just think it deserves a 10/10. It is also very well made and I believe it is one of the best films of all time. I am so happy that there are more movies like this one and that the idea has become a big hit. It is a great movie and well worth watching. I never get tired of it and I definitely won't be turning it off anytime soon. I hope it gets nominated for some awards, I am sure it will be nominated for some good ones. I wish I could be in the cinema with my friends and have a great time watching it together. So if you like the movies of Clint Eastwood and you have not seen this one yet, then I really do urge you to give it a try, trust me, you will not be disappointed.

When I first saw this movie I was 15 years old. I have to admit that I was totally blown away by it. When I saw it for the first time, I thought "this movie is way too cool for the high school age. I can't believe that there are people like this in this world". It was during that time that I started to go to my first-ever college and I was studying physics and this movie really made me realize that what was going on inside my head was being represented in the real world. At the time I had no idea that these things were actually happening. I did not even know that there were people out there who were like "I'm not here to be nice, I'm here to be a fighter". That is what this movie is about, showing us a side of humanity that we have not seen before. I know that this movie has won several awards and for good reason. It is not just a movie. It is a piece of art. It is a masterwork that I think everyone should see. It really is not possible to describe in words what this movie is. I give it a 10/10, not because it deserves it, but because I really enjoyed it so much and I hope you do too. I really hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did.

This movie had a lot to say and one would expect for it to be very well researched but it turned out to be very entertaining. As I am writing this comment, I am thinking of the year 2000. And the final piece of the puzzle is the explanation of the Confederate States of America. A lot of people talk about how the United States of America is, or should be, divided into the states. It may be different from what you would expect, but the movie does provide some clarification about this issue. I love the fact that the film makers not only mention the history of slavery but they also make a good point of using different perspectives. I think that the question is that whether slavery is bad, whether slavery is good, or whether slavery is just in the past. The director and the screenwriter did a great job in giving the viewer the right opinions about slavery and it's meaning to the history of the United States. I loved this movie. I think it should get a lot more attention.

Having just seen this film recently I was immediately drawn into the story of John McCarthy, a truly wonderful man. I cannot remember a single interview where he gave any indication he was going to become a political leader. At the time of the film's release he was a seemingly forgotten man, but was at the forefront of the civil rights movement of the 1950s. It is only by his career and his admirable strength of character that his story has been told. The leading actor is the perfect blend of emotion and passion. He delivers one of the best performances of the decade. He is truly a beautiful person, with a spark of charisma and humor to help his story along. As a fellow old timer myself, I can't help but be touched by his story. The one flaw in the film is that the dialogue was a bit.odd. The characters were written without any depth or depth of feeling. They all spoke as if they had been reading them for years, not knowing any of them very well. It was a great shame, but this added to the overall feeling of being lost in the story. In the end, a very moving story that would make anyone sad or happy.

The movie tells the story of a woman named "Mary" who is a member of the 16th regiment in the Civil War. She is in command of her troop. She was wounded while leading her regiment and had to be evacuated to the Union army. Later she is wounded and unable to stand. The story ends with her in Union hospital and she is finally saved by her commanding officer "Colonel" Buford Pusser. At the end of the movie the lieutenant she is in charge of in the 16th regiment walks in and says "no, ma'am". The Major gets up and walks out. Mary asks "what do you want to do?" He responds "you want to be a sergeant?" Mary responds "I want to be a sergeant." And so we see the two of them (Mary and the Major) going to train. Later on they will be apart of an artillery regiment. And in the end we see Mary and the Major finally getting on together. The movie really captures the feeling of the time. What I loved most about this movie was the acting. They all did a wonderful job of portraying the personalities of the soldiers who they were. The portrayal of the 8th army and the women soldiers really captured the strength, passion, and courage of the Confederate soldiers. I really enjoyed the way the movie portrays the feelings of the women soldiers. It is interesting to note that the movie was shot in Northern California. The movie takes place in a large ranch house on a private island. It was filmed in Southern California. The movie is very romantic. The movie shows the drama, excitement, and bravery of war. Overall the movie is a wonderful story. It tells a great story. It is a good movie and I recommend it to everyone. It is a must see. I rate this movie 10/10.

I think this is a great film. I can watch this movie over and over again and never get tired of it. I think that it is a very good film. I always love a movie with my parents when they are on vacation. Even if they hate a movie, I still love it. The story of President McKinley and his struggle to do something, any thing about the president, to get things done and to make this country great. The story is just the right amount of funny, romantic, and emotional. It is a great film. I give this movie a 10/10.

I know some people are criticizing the movie because of its depiction of Jim Crow laws and the events leading to the Civil Rights movement. However, I don't agree. I see the movie for what it is: A basic history lesson on how the Southern states voted in the late 19th century on the issues of racism and discrimination in a bid to keep their industry from being consolidated in a Southern state. Overall, the movie did a good job presenting the history and the development of the Southern states. I am highly disappointed that so many people haven't seen this movie. I thought it was a great movie, that I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't seen it at the beginning of the year. The only problem I had was that I went into the movie with an attitude of, "that's never gonna happen, it's just gonna be a movie." As I got out of the theater, I was extremely surprised at the kinds of things that happened. As a result, I can't give this movie a 10. I'd have to say it's a 10. I'll give the movie an 8.

I really liked this movie, and I think it deserves more credit than it got. I think the movie was told from the perspective of a psychologist who was in charge of his patients. It's a good story with a good message. This movie is about human trials, about courage, about family, and about belief. The way Brad Pitt was portraying it, I think it would have been difficult for him to act his role if he wasn't so passionate about it. It's a pity, because the people who told this story did it very well. They were very dramatic. As for the effects of the two world wars on family life, I think it's too simplistic to say that all families were damaged by the wars. Family life during that time was almost impossible to get together, and the causes of the war were very important. The effects of the wars were very real. I think the movie also fails to see the whole meaning of the film itself. The movie itself suggests that there is nothing wrong with only one mother, because she is the only mother, and the second mom and dad are not bad. That's very abstract, and doesn't make sense. I think the movie was trying to say that there is no right or wrong in that sense. Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton did an outstanding job with the script. They showed their emotions very convincingly. When the movie was over I was still a little unsatisfied. However, if you can look at the whole picture of the movie, there are really few points that I don't agree with. But at least, this is a movie that's worth seeing.

First of all I want to say that I'm a fan of Ben Foster. His performance in this movie is excellent, and I can't wait for the release of his next movie! I watched the movie with my girlfriend, and I must say, I loved this movie! The first one was probably better, but this movie is different. It's sad that it's only a short film, but the actors really deserve to make a bigger contribution in the future. This is definitely the best movie I've ever seen!

This movie is simply amazing, it really makes you feel like your in the middle of a war with these guys and it shows how the white man is supposed to be. The reason this movie is so amazing is because of the fact that it is not focused on the villains, it is focused on the good guys, and that makes this movie so incredible. The acting in this movie is amazing, every character in this movie were all amazing in their roles. I think that this movie really makes you appreciate what the original Star Wars movie was, and shows the greatness of the original Star Wars trilogy.
