Do not miss this movie just because of its low rating (by icysky44)
Recently a friend of mine watched "The Beach" after I told him my favorite quote i.e. "Never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never cease to be polite, and never outstay your welcome" . He enjoyed the movie a whole lot and told me he hadn't watched it before because of it's low IMDb rating. That's when I decided to register here and post a comment - I hope I help someone else to watch the movie because it is worth a watch. What I personally like so much about this movie is that it is not just plain vanilla. It actually makes sense and can be <more>
a starting point for new thoughts and ideas - something I truly appreciate in a movie.
I'll be brief. I didn't want to watch 'The Beach' because of the bad reviews, but when I accidentally came across it while surfing through the channels, I couldn't stop watching.If you're young and have a thing for interesting stories, you'll love this one.10/10
An amazing film (by spyqueen)
Danny Boyle did an exquisite job on this film. When I first learned that it was indeed a Danny Boyle film I was a bit disappointed that it didn't have any of his "original" cast members... the people that he always works with. When I learned that Robert Carlyle was in this, I was ecstatic. This film has so many wonderful points, I can't list them all. I'm just going to say that "enjoy your dinner Richard" was a classic cinematic moment. A great thing about this film is that it's a wonderful representation of a microcosm of todays society. It shows that no <more>
matter how hard you try to escape all the wrongs in life, and all of your daily annoyances, they'll still be there no matter where you escape to. This film doesn't go from beginning to end. It circles. There is no ending because their lives didn't end. Truly a supreme film. It is what one should expect from a man like Danny Boyle. Leonardo DiCaprio gives another amazing performance. It takes a wonderful actor to be able to portray an emotion such as insanity just with his eyes, and he did so wonderfully!
Unfairly Panned; A Good Movie (by ccthemovieman-1)
Here is another of those films that got panned by critics all over the place, but I liked the movie and thought it was unfairly criticized.Two things are not up for debate: the film is entertaining and the cinematography is gorgeous.Leonardo DiCaprio's lead character is not particularly likable, but that's nothing new for him. He's good at playing the boyish, cocky immature type. He's also good at narration, which he provides here, as he has in a number of other films. In fact, I wish there were more of it in here.French actress Virginie Ledoyen is a new face to me, and a <more>
pretty one. I found her intriguing, and not just because of her face Actually, all the characters were pretty darn interesting in this film and you get a varied group.The scenery from Thailand is magnificent. By the way, "the beach" that's in this film really exists, just as it's seen here. The story is interesting, too, for the full two hours. My only complaint was that they might have toned down the language, particularly with all the f-words.Don't listen to those national critics who blasted this. I think you'll be entertained.
:Trust Me, Its Paradise'The Beach' is a kinda of movie the feel of which surrounds you slowly and completely.I'd say Danny Boyle has done complete justification to the book. The movie captures the essence of the book. I watched the movie first and then read the book. The beach can be better experienced thru the movie. The music by Angelo Badalamenti is excellent, but unfortunately not popular which is why I believe popular is not always the best ;- . DiCaprio proves how versatile and powerful he is as an actor. A must watch for DiCaprio fans. Purchase an original DVD and <more>
you'll get to see alternate beginning and alternate climax of the movie with director's comments. You will like this movie especially if you are a crazy traveler and like to explore unseen and untouched places.Direction, location, music and DiCaprio are the strengths of the movie. 'The Beach' is not just a movie, its an experience.:never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience........
Falls within Top Ten Under-Rated Movies in History (by cdevans3905-1)
Last night, after a 9 hour day at work and another 4 hours studying and cleaning I decided to check out the On-Demand list of free movies. Nothing excited me, but I saw the title of "The Beach" and remember hearing some good reviews from friends. I also remember the critics ripping this movie to shreds, so I decided it would be appropriate for me to find out for myself. I was astonished at how great "the Beach" is, but I'm definitely not surprised at the discrepancy of opinions from person to person. This movie is not for everyone; it takes a certain type of mindset to <more>
get into the movie. For any ambitious person working hard to achieve the "American dream" this movie can come off as nonsensical, confusing, unrealistic, and meaningless. But any person with ambition for life, and exotic, unpredictable raw passion and pleasure this movie can serve chills and strike that person close to the roots. This movie is certainly made to enhance the viewers pleasure if under the influence of marijuana, but it is much more than a "stoner" movie. "The Beach" is an examination of the pull people feel from their more primitive side. As technology is vastly increasing and becoming more complex; people in the "real world" have a tendency to become submerged in the drive to succeed. The beach is the ultimate paradise, and one critique of the movie is that ultimately the paradise doesn't work in the end, I only wish somehow it could. This movie isn't perfect by any stretch, but overall as a movie I give it a B- grade. However, there are a few scenes in this movie that are as powerful as I've ever seen in cinema. The scene when the three newbies first see the beach, for example, is a very awesome sight. Another obvious strong scene is the night swimming sex scene. This scene was not only aesthetically incredible, but absolutely ripe with passion; so much that the viewer can almost feel "the haze of infatuation."Overall the acting is both good and bad. Leo does a great job, which is to be expected from him, but some of the other actors fall short in a few scenes. A few parts of the movie are also rather corny, when Richard pretends to be in a video game, for example. The soundtrack literally could not be better, it's incredible.
The Beach is interesting in that some people feel that its terrible while there are others who feel that it is an unsung hero of a movie. When I first saw The Beach, back in 2000, I thought it was OK, not as bad as most people said it was. But, just like with A Life Less Ordinary, The Beach grew on me and I had to watch it again. After seeing it a few more times I really started to pick up on what was going on and realized that at the end of the film the viewer has gone through quite an adventure with Dicaprio and co. The acting, cinematography, music, and story are great and hold up after <more>
repeat viewings. The Beach is one of those movies that I watch once a year as its enjoyability never decreases. This is a very solid film that will no doubt only increase in its popularity as time goes by as fans of The Beach are quite hardcore. Even though Dany Boyle has said that he is not very proud of The Beach I believe that he's made a gross error and misjudged his work because even after all these years The Beach still has a freshness to it that most films lose while they are still in the theaters. Because of these reasons The Beach will not die today.
If you travel, you'll understand (by emilyzongqi37)
When you travel, you are surrounded by people. Amidst all that foreign intrigue, you are truly alone - an opportunity to be truthful to your instincts.When you are young and you travel, recklessness and the need to experience drive almost all your decision, well other than budgetary constraints.It is therefore quite truthful at times to relate to the character who is in search of this ultimate freedom, a place where all your worldly obligations are suspended and irrelevant.The movie is an irony. Not only externally, that though it depicts the end purity of nature when fox's being sued for <more>
environmental damage, but also that any man-found paradise is not free, but with a price and in this case, could be the ultimate price.I truly enjoyed the movie especially at times the sparks of life's insight and moments of traveller's consciousness that when you are there, in that destination, IT becomes reality and no longer are you foreign and problems arise regardless.Though the romance is distracting, Etienne, Canet's portrayal is quite the eye candy.Definitely a watch, but may not appeal to all tastes.
From director Danny Boyle Shallow Grave, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later this is a great adventure thriller. Based on the bestselling novel by Alex Garland, the story basically involves backpacker Richard Leonardo DiCaprio, Boyle's first choice was Ewan McGregor seeks adventure in Thailand, and he eventually finds it with drug-crazed Daffy Robert Carlyle . He tells him of a secret tropical beach, and after killing himself leaves him a map, that Richard copies for some guys he met. He then rounds up two friends, Françoise Virginie Ledoyen and her boyfriend Etienne Guillaume Canet . <more>
They travel by boat for half the journey and swim the rest, after landing on the island, they escape some troops who own the near marijuana field, jump off high rock to water, and meet Keaty Paterson Joseph . The island's leader Sal The Chronicles of Narnia's Tilda Swinton allows them to stay, as long as they do not go back and tell others, and after settling in and being accepted, they become very accustomed to the paradise who wouldn't . Richard also gets closer to both Françoise and Sal behind boyfriends' backs, and even survives a shark attack. The paradise starts to crumble though, after more people start to come, and they also die from shark attack, this is when Richard rebels and hides from everyone, in his madness/depression, he even sees himself talking to dead Daffy. The paradise ends when after finding out about more people coming to the island, the troops force them off the island, and all try to go back to some sort of normal life, but they all have their memories of the good times on the island. Also starring Lars Arentz Hansen as Bugs and Daniel York as Hustler. The adventure is a lot of fun, DiCaprio is very good, most characters have their own lovable qualities, the big visual moments, e.g. surreal, are fantastic, the cinematography of the tropical beach is magnificent, and the soundtrack is fantastic, including All Saints' "Pure Shores" and Moby's "Porcelain". Leonardo DiCaprio was number 94 on The 100 Greatest Movie Stars, Robert Carlyle was number 17 on The 50 Greatest British Actors, and Tilda Swinton was number 44 on The 50 Greatest British Actresses. Very good!
