My Thoughts:

I wouldn't say this is a favorite film of mine. But It is very well done and holds your interest with ease. And the film did seem to hold up well after all these years. Definetly a film that is worth the three hours you need to put in to watch it. I think everyone should see this at least once. Though I do think this one is a little over hyped. I can see how people could go into this one expecting much more. Though I must say that Brando was excellent in the part.

Plot:
Think of the most touching love story you ever saw. Think, too, of the brightest comedy, the most astonishing supernatural tale and a sleek mystery-thriller. Did you come up with four separate films? Or are you among the millions of fans and critics who've discovered Ghost, the #1 film of 1990? Ghost will surprise you, delight you, make you believe. Patrick Swayze plays a ghost who teams with a psychic (Academy-Award® winner Whoopi Goldberg) to uncover the truth behind his murder — and to rescue his sweetheart (Demi Moore) from a similar fate. "The word of mouth is that Ghost is a 'must-see' romance," says Entertainment Weekly. Ditto to that!

My Thoughts:

It has been many years since I seen this one. Used to see it on cable all the time, I remembered enjoying it.... but I didn't remember much else storyline wise. It is a good film. A supernatural romance thriller. Whoopi Goldberg is a good addition for some much needed comedy to round it out. Well worth the time put in to watch it.

My Thoughts:
Since i saw Karsten bought Con Air, i was in the mood to rewatch it, ages since i watched last time. And the movie is just great from start to finish. Great action trough-out, Some great moments here and there. A great Malkowich in the lead as the crazy mastermind and ofc the oldschool Nicolas Cage! I really love the old stuff from Nicolas Cage. I think Nicolas Cage and Jerry Bruckheimer has made alot of great movies together! All in all this a fun and great actionflick! So lets hope we will see Cage back to his oldschool days when he was at the top. Check it out!
