1.0 out of 5 stars Can I have a refund and 2 hours back??, January 26, 2012
This review is from: The Iron Lady (DVD)
This was the worst lost opportunity. So much of the movie was spent in her present day dementia talking to her late husband Dennis. The Cold War was not even covered except a shot of her dancing with Reagan! We get it - the artistic license to illustrate how we can miss a truly great person in a store and only see an old woman. Got it. Could have illustrated that in 4 mins. Instead it became the most boring time spent with a woman we don't know in her apartment. The point of a movie is to TELL A STORY. Not ramble about in present day - we can do that at the mall. And this is one of the most exciting stories of recent times! This woman lead a REMARKABLE life. Yet, you could not find ONE event in the Cold War to cover? You could not spend more time in her years in Parliament? It was so boring. Last year's King's Speech illustrates all that this movie is not - do not stray from the story. Just chronologically move through the storyline. The story is already powerful - let it speak for itself. It is Oscar material and they missed the mark. And Meryl Streep was AMAZING. But she could not save the boring travesty that this script reveals. The screenwriters on this film should never work in this industry again. One of the WORST. I wish I could get my ticket price and 2 hours back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should be categorized in FICTION - Utterly ridiculous book, September 9, 2011
This book was clearly an Irish yarn woven by a guy looking to cash in on the Kennedys. And the "conversations" with JFK Jr read like something from an 8th graders diary. It is complete fiction that he should speak of his family and legacy to this guy like a gossip columnist would. Why gossip about his own family - he knew them. It is so easy to see through the veneer of the web he has woven.

He may have been a friend in life but clearly he was not the confidant that this man is trying to project. Clearly he was just a good time guy in JFK Jrs life and not the close best friend he is clumsily trying to get us to believe.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definite Biography of John Paul II, April 5, 2006
This is absolutely the BEST biography out there on John Paul II. Unlike those by A & E or NBC or the like, it is simply based on the facts. Many of the other "biographies" have sections in them based on the agenda of the filmmaker. Usually taking the position of admonishment against the Pope for not being a liberal American. This one is just the opposite. It deals with John Paul II with no agenda other than to give a close and intimate portrait of the man. It is well produced and documented. I have seen hours and hours of documentaries on the late Pontiff and I would recommend this as the best.
