This film was a classic to me and I see why it is held with such regard and is in the company of many other films considered some of the greatest films of all time. I enjoyed the constant utilization of the close-up scenes and the intensity observed I those scenes between characters. I also enjoyed the print that Leone used to show difference between the character the titles of the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly for all three characters. The portrayal for Blondie as this anti-hero in this film really appeases to me, as he is not squeaky clean and a boy scout like most film heroes but instead he is a renegade that lives slightly above the law and is still morally
This represents one of the actor’s career-best performances. Often, he has gotten by on charm and charisma. Here, he has to delve deep to bring out Deckard’s soul. (Berardinelli) Ford’s character Rick Deckard makes a late appearance in the film, when Agent K tracks down Deckard the story begins to unravel as truth rises to the surface. As a long-time fan of Harrison Ford, I found his aging gruff character highly entertaining, while one gets to see a little comedic relief as these two male leads battle it out on the screen.
Robin Williams, known to be a successful comedian but in this movie he was able to bring out the raw emotion of a human who experiences love and friendship. I loved the way his character developed throughout the movie. At first he was rather shy and timid but as the movie progresses he was able to bring the best in his character by making us believe that there are times where we have to take the leap of faith. The character of Mrs. Lowe was also remarkable because she was able to pull the emotion of a mother seeing her child suffer. She did wonderfull because I was sympathizing so hard with
Kim is also a fascinating depiction of a clash between religions and cultures. Without seeming to make a big deal out of it, Kim is a story of Hindus, Buddhists, Jainists, Sikhs, Muslims, and Christians rubbing shoulders with varying degrees of respect and tolerance. Characters frequently switch languages in mid-conversation, either to facilitate comprehension, underscore particular social or religious meanings, or exclude certain people. Credit here must be given to Kipling for doing a fantastic job at transliterating different accents and dialects. That's usually difficult for an author to pull off convincingly, but here it is flawlessly done.
I love the acting (especially Morgan Freeman) and plot. I love how this film builds slowly and takes its time, which allows you to become invested in Andy’s fate. Interestingly, the film is not told from the protagonist’s point of view, but rather through the eyes of his good friend. I love the friendship that Andy and Red share in this film and how it gives them both the strength to survive prison, and then freedom. The end of this film, beginning with Andy’s escape, is what makes it exceptionally great.
Tuesdays with Morrie is a non-fiction book which includes values and lessons inculcated in the story of an old man named Morrie Schwartz and a young man named Mitch Albom which had lost touch for several years. The book circulated in the events of their lives from the flashbacks and present times and how they were able to meet up again and change each other 's lives.

It is how the encounter and visitation of Mitch to his college professor Morrie every Tuesday became lessons on how to live life. With this, Tuesdays with Morrie is the outcome of the remaining time they spent together while Morrie is nearing to his death.
I feel the movie was portrayed well, and I like some of the people the Lee cited. The movie was also able to show Lee and Leslie’s struggle in a credible way, and it managed to show how both sides felt too. I could feel and see why Leslie changed and that she truly wanted to share her discovery with her husband. It was also an overall good movie, which I would definitely recommend; I for sure wouldn’t mind watching it again. On a final note, the movie precisely shows the transition from skepticism to faith of an everyday man and his

Movies help people understand history, or historical events in a different way than others. These movies paint the picture for you and present it in the best conceivable ways, but having them be accurate is more important by educational means. The movie “Selma” is a very accurate rendition of Martin Luther King Junior’s
