Up Series - GENERAL REVIEW

GREAT, GREAT, GREAT series to watch these movies...started watching them all in order in 2007...

(by coincidence one of the subjects ends up living in Madison, WI!)

So very interesting to watch this non-statistically-relevant social experiment unfold...

Reality TV before there was Reality TV...

We see a little of ourselves in each on of the characters and family...

A masterful editing of subject matter, to get the audience to CARE about each of the subjects and APPRECIATE things from their lives...

Ebert puts this series in his all-time top 10 or even top 5 lists...I agree...

A must-watch for anyone over the age of 25...

Good, depressing, not as good though as many had suggested...Carey actually outperformed what I thought was possible for her...

Surprisingly good...didn't not think I would like it at all, but it got me hooked...the flashback scenes were really what worked...Tucci is a great actor, can fill any role with authenticity...

The Usual Suspects

Very underrated IMO...besides the plot device tricks, it's just a great story, unfolded at a steady pace with great acting and great visuals...the noir aspect just adds to the mystery of the whole thing...who is who? which was is up, down?

Not technically a great movie, but it has a classic-cult movie aura around it...Kurt Russel is great (the scene with the changing ethnic last names is an all-timer)...the stunts are funny, especially when seen as a adolescent boy!
