      What good article did the star write?

      The movie is very good, it is the type I like very much, the slow and quiet story is very attractive to me, of course, it may also be because of the reason why I like basketball, anyway, I would like to see a talented player anyway, plus a mysterious writer and more attractive people. The first time I watched it at school, the showman actually only showed the first half of the film, which made his head dew, and he didn't know the title. After many years, I didn't know why, but I found it...

      The power of mutual redemption

      Before watching the movie, I thought it was similar to a soul catcher. I saw half of it and thought it was an appointment on Tuesday. It was not until the end that I suddenly realized that this is a story of mutual salvation.

      I always look forward to the emergence of such a retired master who will guide himself. It is like a martial arts person who teaches internal skills. It is also like a literary master in a movie. How to help black basketball children write. But in the end, I...

      Legacy room

      What caught the eye was Connelly's beautiful face. The pictures of old people, young people, especially the bicycle, looked very beautiful.
             After the death of Jammer's father, the black man with high basketball talent began to write, and an accidental betting game made him meet Foster. The stubborn old writers and Jammer get along with the usual plot routines, and of course they also have promises to each other. Jammer was not afraid of being fired to protect Foster, making Foster...

      Inside and outside

      The key to a woman's heart, is unexpected gift at unexpected time.
             Forrester said, the black boy with a bright heart, nodding his head, he not only understood, but also realized the wide audience with his natural keenness of language, so he not only gave it away After taking the white girl a copy of "Avalon Landing", she was caught off guard and sent Forrester to the stadium in the scene of memories. In my mind, this is the beginning of the visitor's climbing up the door to the...

      Open that window-"Visitor of the Mind"

      What kind of world do we live in? Many people think it is indifferent and ruthless, and many people think it is dull and boring. Therefore, many people are reluctant to open that window. Because they don't know what it will bring to them after opening it. Is it a scheming intrigue? Are they killing each other hideously?

      Fear comes from ignorance, precisely because we are cautious about the world outside the window, which accumulates our doubts and fears about it. I always felt that if...

      Although it is a director I like and a subject I like, but now I can't stand the predictable ending too much. It's so warm, but it can't make the movie more profound and...

      May 1, 2014 Mark want to see. Viewed at home in Chicago on August 18, 2019. A hymn to friendship and literature. I thought the film could actually end with William riding his bike through New York in a taxi with his desire to return to his Scottish homeland, but I think it's only the two-way nature of the friendship that Jamal made William write his second full about that was fully expressed. Put an end to...

      2014144 Another pot of chicken soup for the soul after Gus Van Sant's "Good Will Hunting", the taste is a bit greasy but still refreshing. Sean Connery is no problem playing this kind of eccentric old man who is a life mentor, and there is a cameo by Pony at the end.

      I think it's love. (Forrester is the textbook-like arrogance ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah stab me to death! The part of the night road bike ride is simple!...
