  • Love Brendan Fraser! Hated the Movie

    By FaeKay
    I love love love Brendan. His acting is superb bar none. However I hated the movie. Hated it. It does nothing but bash on religion and the daughter remained a money grubbing brat to the the end, there was no real conclusion. And despite bashing religion ( all characters) Brendan ‘s character “gets” to go to heaven. The whole movie just doesn’t make sense. However as I said before Brendan Fraser’s acting was magnificent. I’m just so sad that it took this long for him to get the accolades he deserves.

    This movie is a tearjerker. Some of the characters and the way they behave may even make you feel angry towards them, but that’s exactly how they would act in real life and their feelings are all justified. Brendan Fraser gives an amazing performance, as well as the rest of the cast. He definitely deserved the Oscar that he won for this film.

  • This is a film for the darkest moments we’re all afraid to see.

    By Thewolfman6
    Brendan Fraser (and a strong cast) puts his soul into the body of a lost man whose profound unhappiness manifests in food addiction, and selective isolation. He shares the moments without a desire to fix anything but the path forward for his estranged daughter. He rejects redemption from a society that he has long since been a part of and asks the viewer to suffer with our own questions, doubts and insecurities right along with him. This is a difficult story that people should see. It is difficult to watch. Fraser’s character Charlie wants to believe in others though he has given up on himself. The Oscar performance is in showing us a story of those we choose not to see, when we lose value in ourselves, and perhaps inspiring those we cannot give up on. Fraser strives to find dignity and understanding and hope in humanity. May the film inspire those who are lost or in self-isolation and those who love them.

    By BrookscuzIam
    Where were all the mummies man ? Isn’t there an expectation once you’ve bought a $20 dollar movie ticket and a drink and popcorn for $40 that there will be MUMMIES ! Maybe he ate the mummies maybe I didn’t sit close enough to the screen to see the mummies! Send in the mummies!!!
