The following opinions were drawn from the "user comments"
on the Internet
Movie Database. They are meant to help others decide whether
a film is worth seeing.
WHEN HARRY MET SALLY
"This may not be a date movie for some people, but it
certainly gives hope on your marriage that you are desperately
trying to hold on while at the same time wanting to let go every
"Jacob's Ladder is not a horror film but if you consider
yourself to be an extremely analytical person such as myself,
then this one could be mentally disturbing. I relate 100% to this
film because I had a bad trip back in '95 and ironically enough
that was the first time I saw this film...this movie boils down
to one thing and that is to simply enjoy your life while you can.
That is exactly what this film expressed to me in relation to
my episode, and due to Allah's will I am alive today to relay
"I just saw this movie for the first time, and it blew
me away. I'd read in Time magazine that Trent Reznor watched it
several, several times during a period of depression, and having
just gone through such a period, I thought that I'd check it out."
WHAT DREAMS MAY COME
"this is simply great movie! i always see Robin Williams
in the same place with YES singer Jon Anderson, creating great
things, but underestimated because most people are not ready for
what they do...Of course this is not a film for people who likes
kickboxer VII or blood fight XXVII, works in some great firms,
eats hamburgers and other fast crap, uses drugs or cigarettes
to toxify themselves or never trusts their own fathers. Hmmm,
but i'm afraid they are majority..."
THE SIXTH SENSE
"My first impression upon seeing it was the simplicity
that carries the story past understanding, and into a state of
complicity with the viewer that dissolves fear. It made me come
to terms with the dark, noisy loneliness and all dark things Ive
brought with me since childhood."
BOYS ON THE SIDE
"Somakers of 'Boys...' Good job, and stop beating
up on us men, and please stop making up fantasy conditions of
women as 'boys in skirts' or some other version of men in order
to strengthen your own lives."
THE FIRST MOVIE
"The part where the clone Pikachu keeps hitting the real
one, and the real Pikachu just stands there and keeps taking it,
is quite possibly the most moving and meaningful scene I've ever
seen in a movie. And get this: the scene where the tears of Pokémon
bring Ash back to life actually had me crying, and I, as a general
rule, don't cry."
THELMA AND LOUISE
"There are so many parallels in this movie to a short
portion of my life (except Harlan and his demise). In 1971 my
best friend and I traveled 60,000 miles in 6 months in a '67 Camaro
not a '66 Bird top down all the way. She was Thelma and I was
'Louise' driver. If she is out there in Southern California somewhere,
I'd like her to know that I lived happily ever after."
FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH
"Believe it or not, I just saw Fast Times At Ridgemont
High for the first time. I thought it was really good! ... I have
a friend who looks just like Spicoli and he loves this movie.
Ray Walston is also very funny as Mr. Hand. (ironically, my last
history teacher was just like him. How creepy is that?)"
"After watching 'Notting Hill' with my wife and giving
her a big hug, I saw that she was just a girl, standing in front
of a boy, wanting to be loved! What greater joy of meaning can
be given by a film? 'Teach me the Magic of Wonder, Give me the
Spirit to Fly'John Denver"
