Revolutionary Road

I don't normally watch movies like this. Revolutionary Road is a movie about people with feelings, who talk about feelings, and feel different feelings. Normally, I watch movies like the Chronicles of Riddick, The Fast and the Furious, or xXx. One thing I like about Vin Diesel is that he never talks about his feelings.

However, if you are into that sort of thing, Revolutionary Road is a pretty good film. This was a movie about people with feelings. I couldn't really tell you what it was about or even what happened, since I'm not entirely sure if it was about anything or if anything ever happened. It was just a movie about people talking. Sometimes the conversations were friendly, sometimes romantic, something angry, and sometimes none of the above. But it was always entertaining and well done.

This film was something of a Titanic reunion, since the two stars were Kate Winslet and Leonardo DeCaprio, both accompanied by Kathy Bates in a supporting role. Winslet and Leo have come a long way since Titanic, and their performances in this movie were impeccable. If you're a fan of either actor, this is worth seeing, since I don't think I've ever seen them better than they were here.

So... I like it, for the most part. This was a well done movie about people with feelings made for people who care about that sort of thing. Check it out.

it was good to see the old duo back together again.

I'm surprised to see you do a review of this one. I thought this was a good if frustrating film. I really didn't care for Kate Winslet's character, and was happy that she died.


The acting is top notch, though, and it's really a film that held my attention right up until the end.

yeah, there was quite a bit of yelling and stomping around in this, right? all those FEELINGS. . .
