For the Love of Film...

Welcome to my review website. I love movies, and here’s the place I talk about them. You’ll find my ratings, on a scale of zero to five stars, in all of my posts. For each film, I’ve written either a full critique, which is a longer piece; a compact review, which is usually just a paragraph; or a quick take, which is only a sentence or two. I also post articles about the world of cinema on my film blog.

In the Comments section on each page, feel free to share your own thoughts and feelings about the films discussed here.

Lights! Camera! Action!

Rudy

Based on a true story, this film tells the story of a young man who grows up yearning to play football for the University of Notre Dame. Physically small, with little athletic ability, and without the academic background even to gain acceptance into the school, Rudy still pursues his dream. Sean Astin embodies the eponymous character’s heart, buoying this Capraesque film to great emotion.
