I recently watched the "Goldfinch" on cable, and it was excellent! It is not the typical Hollywood fairy tale, but it is quite a good tale, just like most of the classics of the genre. The story is about a young woman (Samantha Eggar) who was abandoned by her parents as a child. She is taken in by the family of a rich and spoiled man (Curt de Niro). His family is not happy with her, and send her away to live with them. But one night she has an encounter with a mysterious bird, and a love story begins. The special effects are very good and it was nice to see all the animation styles of the era. The cast is a very good one, with Jack Lemmon and Samuel West as the leading stars. If you like this type of movie, this one is very interesting, and will probably get you interested in movie history.

I watched this on TV (because it was on at the time) and found it entertaining. It's one of those films where you have to sort out what to like and what to dislike. What I found engaging was the two or three moments where Heathcliff (or Jim, as the movie refers to him) is alone, only for him to have the opportunity to get back into touch with his estranged son, Bobby. It's easy to see that Heathcliff loves his son and wants him to return. The one thing I don't like about the film is the way Heathcliff's backstory is presented. He's described as having experienced childhood abuse but not having been sexually abused. What I have in mind is that Heathcliff had not been abused at all. The abuse Heathcliff endured is well-known and very serious. I think Heathcliff really needed to have some form of counseling to deal with his trauma and I think the film presents his therapy poorly. The movie also provides Heathcliff with a companion for his adventures, a sweet, naïve girl named Ellie. When Heathcliff goes on an adventure, he goes alone and gets lost. Heathcliff's adventures are shown in flashbacks and I have to say that when I was 12 I was a fan of adventures and even in the 70's that could be fun. But for me, it just doesn't work. When you get stuck in a situation where you don't know where you are or what time of the day it is, you're not going to have a great time. And Heathcliff, who isn't stupid, should know that. You've got to have someone there to point you in the right direction. When Heathcliff runs into his younger self in the 1980's, he's told that his younger self was the real adult, who didn't know what he was doing, when it was actually him running away from home, going back to the 1940's. This film is a modern take on the adventures of young Heathcliff and has some interesting plot twists. For example, how did the older Heathcliff find out about the adventures of his younger self? There are many things to like in the film. One thing I didn't like was Heathcliff's father who I don't believe was a good man. But Heathcliff's relationship with his dad is good and it's worth a watch. I was really disappointed with the ending of the film. Heathcliff's adventure with Ellie is shown in flashbacks. After this, the film just ends and you have Heathcliff as he is today and he's almost as goofy as ever. There's a feeling that it's pointless to continue the story of Heathcliff when he's had so much of his life, all of which we've seen, depicted in the last fifteen years. I was really disappointed when Heathcliff got back to his mom's home in the end, for me it was not the appropriate ending. It could have been a way for Heathcliff to heal and move on. But then Heathcliff is suddenly just back in the present with no connection to his mother. So the relationship with his dad is now an empty shell and Heathcliff is no longer able to really have that emotional connection with Ellie and his other adult self. The movie ends with Heathcliff taking Ellie back to the past and she tells him that the memories

I thought the film was very moving and deeply moving. I would recommend the film to anyone who wants to think and feel about something. I'm sure it has a lot of people out there that have not seen the film. I do have to admit that I liked the ending, as I could not see any other ending. I think that the film was very moving and heartwarming, especially the two acts that were not originally part of the plot. The acting was superb. Everyone in the cast was really believable and felt very real. I thought that Ben Foster was a very convincing lead actor, and really held his part very well. He really brought the characters to life and made them real. Catherine Zeta-Jones was very convincing as the loving mother, and she really was very believable as well. A very beautiful and moving film. I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend this film to everyone.

For me this film was an ode to the novel of the same name by J.M. Barrie. It was enjoyable, it was touching and it was heart warming. As much as I loved the film, it was not without its flaws. One of the biggest was the choice of Ruth Gordon. Ruth Gordon had just been thrust into the role of the title character (though technically she did not actually have a role) in a film set in 1939. This was a time when little girls were expected to be pretty. The fact that the two main female characters were GIs really ruined that. Another was the choice of the setting. They did not have much of a setting in this film. I know they are meant to be in the past but I did not feel that the setting was that important. The only time the setting was used was during the scenes with the old soldiers. This was definitely a film that should have been in black and white. The only reason this film was not in black and white was because the black and white scenes were for the old soldiers, they could not fit the film in black and white. This was a film that was well made, there was nothing wrong with it. However, it is also not one that I would recommend. To sum it up, if you like films that are related to the book, or if you want to enjoy a good film, I recommend this film.

In the title, it is important to recognize that this is a very different experience than any of the other Birdman films I have seen. I have watched the 2010 film for the first time and when it came out I was almost certain I would never watch it again. I was still skeptical because it was set in the musical, I had never seen the previous films but in retrospect I see the parallels and while I am sure the films are a lot alike, I could never really connect to them. In this film, however, I really liked the ensemble cast. Russell Crowe was great as a mysterious and mysterious man. I could not figure out who he was and what his motives were. Michael Keaton did a great job as the angry and unstable cop. I was always hoping that he would turn his back on his life of crime and become the love of his life. The character of Goldfinch was created so well by Michael Keaton that it was almost a real feeling of the character. I was always hoping for the best and I wanted him to be happy. I wanted the happy ending. This film is a good story with a great ending. I loved it and I recommend it to anyone who wants to know what happens to people in their lives. The performances were amazing and the story was really captivating. I would recommend this film to anyone who wants a better understanding of the characters in their lives. Michael Keaton is truly a legend of cinema.

Well directed, acted and written by the director of "Blow Up", the "Goldfinch" comes from what I consider a directorial team who were very successful in the mainstream industry. The cast was also excellent with a performance that is deserving of an Oscar. This movie was certainly better than the "A Beautiful Mind" of 1997, and the "Happiness" of 1993, but I think it is a lot better than "Chinatown" in 1993. The cinematography of the film was also beautiful, even though I do not understand why the director wanted to take his camera to Morocco for the opening scene of the film. In the end, I think the best thing about "Goldfinch" is that it is quite possible to watch a film by the director of "Blow Up" and not know anything about him, and it is really a shame that this film is almost completely unknown to the public.

This is probably the most underrated film of all time. It is a great feel-good film that has a great message. Why is it underrated? It is a film that doesn't attempt to be epic or anything, it just is. It has some truly amazing acting. I don't think many movies get that kind of acting. Most people don't. And on top of that it has an amazing story that will leave you with a tear in your eye. It's a movie that you can watch again and again. Every time you think it's going to go too slow, it takes you back to the beginning and will make you think about it until the very end.

The Goldfinch (2014) is a fantastic film about a troubled woman's search for her mother. Anne Hathaway (who has been in several great films, including THE FABULOUS 7, THE FIFTH ELEMENT) and Miranda Richardson (who is quite underrated) bring out the best in this film. The film is pretty slow and if you have not seen it, you will probably be confused at times, but if you have seen it, you will feel the love and compassion of Hathaway and Richardson's characters. You will really want to see the film to understand what it was about. The story is pretty simple, but that is not a bad thing. It is hard to come up with an actual story in a film, but this film did it. I don't really have a problem with the story, but there was one scene in particular that is really irritating. I was watching it with my girlfriend and I was very upset because the scene was so out of character for the characters. We weren't sure what it was supposed to be about and I could have done without it. Overall, The Goldfinch is a great film that I would recommend to anyone, but if you have seen it and don't understand it, you should check it out again. It really is that good.
