One of the best movies of this year by cuzzanio
Great acting and well deserved Oscars. If you have been impacted by a slow or clumsy FDA decision, this movie will move you to the bones!
Dallas Buyers Club...where is it playing?!?!?! by jmazil01
It's a week after the Academy Awards have wrapped up already and I can't find this movie playing anywhere in my area! Yet, 12 Years a Slave is playing. This bothers me since we're talking about a movie that won the best actor & supporting actor awards so you'd think it would've been re-released for people to go see by now. Just puzzling!
DALLAS BUYERS CLUB by DOGMOMTHRICE
AS I BECAME ILL & WAS NOT ABLE TO GO. (AND IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY ! ! ! ) I AM GOING TO HAVE TO RESHEDULE. I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW FEW THEATERS ARE SHOWING. "BEST ACTOR" & BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR"., WHAT ARE THESE THEATERS THINKING ! ! ! I HOPE I WON'T BE FORCED TO SEE ON A "SMALL" SCREEN" SUCH AS "NETFLIX"
I CAN'T WAIT TO RESCHEDULE. MAYBE FRIDAYS NEWSPAPER WILL HAVE A SHOWING CLOSER TO HOME
"SAD FAN", AND ON MY B DAY TOO ! ! !
McConaughey and Leto deserve Oscars by the_bird_is_the_word
Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto deserve their Oscars. It was a disturbing film with not to lovable characters but great performances, It's disturbing that people live the way they were depicted in the film. The viewing public needs to know this. One hopes that AIDS patients are treated better today than they were in the 1980's. This was not a feel good movie but a good movie just the same.
Not happy story but excellent by rayrumtum
I was skeptical that this movie merited the Oscar for best actor and best supporting actor. But after seeing it, I think the Academy did well! I really wasn't sure what to expect plot wise other than that it had to do with AIDs. The lead actor was impeccable in changing from a basically unlikable character to one you could sympathize with.
Can't stop thinking about Dallas Buyers Club! by ccordet
Dallas Buyers Club is an extraordinary film. There is not a moment wasted. Each scene is filled with emotion and character development. It was a pleasure to see such honesty and growth of human spirit and understanding portrayed on the screen. Do not miss this film. It is a triumph for the film makers and a gift to the audience.
Great Performances, Choppy Filming by blackbeltbaker
I have not generally been a fan of Matthew McConaughey, but he and Jared Leto do give outstanding performances. It a sad and very sweet transformation movie and even though Ron Woodruff is at first not a very likeable character, you do wind up admiring and rooting for him as the movie progresses. The movie also really brings to life the pitiful state of drug trials and approvals and really touches on the desperation that so many must feel when given a terminal sentence.
As far as downsides....the movie was way too choppy in its filming; it dragged in parts and slammed you in the face in others. I found it a little disjointed. Sadly, I also found Jennifer Garner's performance a bit flat, and I usually like her work very much.
So in summary, definitely worth seeing....on Netflix.
Dallas Buyers Club by jsummerlin99664
Loved this movie. Matthew McConaughey was amazing and Jared Leto is worthy of his Oscar nomination. It's a good story that made me think - in addition to the film FARMAGEDDON about the government's role in preventing folks from making our own decisions about what food we should be allowed to eat - there should be another called PHARMAGEDDON about the government's role in preventing folks from getting the medications they need to survive. Let's face it, big corporations that make pesticides and drugs have the resources to control our elected officials - been going on a long time.
