All the things people are saying about this movie isn’t just hype. If you read Entertainment Weekly it sounds like filming was just a wreck, which makes it all the more amazing that they created such a great, smart, slick, entertaining movie.

I haven’t read a whole lot of Jane Austen. Honestly, just Pride and Prejudice after I saw the Kiera Knightley movie. So, I could see elements of that story in this film – and was told there were also elements of Sense and Sensibility and Persuasion. Which, when rendering an author’s life into a story itself makes sense and is fun if
I didn’t like Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I think I will probably the second or third time I see it (on video). Because the things that were done were mostly done well.
Transformers is so much fun! I love Michael Bay and everything he can do visually. Actually liked the story and really enjoyed the characters.
It’s no secret that I like Michael Bay so I’m glad this ended up being a lot better than The Island.

Sometimes I think I should have been British. I have a sort of heightened sense of propriety for an American. So, I really understood and enjoyed this film. When she says,

To begin with, I went into Apocalypto without knowing what to expect and I think this is the sort of film that is better that way.
I enjoyed it.
It’s very powerful emotionally and visually.
But know that it’s violent, not throughout but where it is – it’s savage and visceral. If you can handle that then I’d say it’s worth seeing.
This isn’t going to be a typical review because I’ve seen Pearl Harbor a dozen times. But I’m watching it while I cruise around the internet because I’m too tired to watch anything that requires thought. And with all due respect to Mr. Bruckheimer and Mr. Bay (because I’m generally a fan of them both) they ended it completely wrong.
