    Reese does a commendable job as a woman in search

    |
    Posted .

    Reese Witherspoon in a serious role? Could she possibly do a commendable job, and what was all that buzz about Oscar caliber? I seriously doubted she could get my attention in such a role. I mean, I really enjoy being entertained by her humorous sort of immature roles in past movies. But, much to my surprise, I was mesmerized by her role in this movie of a woman in search of her reason for being. There are numerous subplots, one being the relationship she has with her brother. This is similar to many sibling relationships. But, after the death of her mother, she is left wondering what is next. I don't want to tell too much of the story, but in addition to a moving story line, the scenery in the areas traveled to is wonderful making me, as a viewer, want to go to some of the areas.

    No stronger performance than Reese Witherspoon

    |
    Posted .

    In a recent interview, actor Reese Witherspoon said something to the effect that she started her own production company in order to make films she and her partners wanted to make and that they would have a strong female influence. If "Wild" is any indication of what will come, I can't wait. This film is based on the memoir, "Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail" by Cheryl Strayed and was scripted by Nick Hornby. With Witherspoon as Cheryl, the film is directed by Jean-Marc Vallee ("Dallas Buyers Club") with drama, humor and a deep look into the soul of the troubled woman. The film opens with a hilarious scene of neophyte hiker Cheryl trying to attach her over-stuffed backpack to her shoulders. The backpack is literally as big and heavy as the woman. The film manages to go back and forth between events on the trail and those that led up to the woman attempting such a daunting test. That is, to walk a 1000 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail to Oregon. During the 3 month journey we learn how earlier events in her life led to a failed marriage, drug addiction and random hookups. Seeing a brochure in a store, Cheryl decides to strike out on her own on the hike to Oregon where she has decided to settle. Along the way, she meets strangers, some friendly, some not. The journey is painful, both physically and emotionally, for both Cheryl, and I suspect Ms. Witherspoon. There is a strong supporting performance by Laura Dern as Cheryl's mother Bobbi, but Witherspoon carries the weight, literally and figuratively in this award-worthy film. I can think of no stronger performance this year. The film is beautifully shot, using locations in Oregon and Washington. Cinematographer, Yves Belanger mixes the ruggedness of the wilderness with its natural beauty. Witherspoon and her business partner Bruna Papandrea were also heavily involved in this year's "Gone Girl." They are off to a terrific start. I love this film.

    If you haven't seen The Wild yet, it is a great movie! Even better in 4K format if you have the setup for it at home! We saw this in the theater and the 4K home theater experience is better. For those that like to hike, camp, backpack, and self discover this one will get you in the mood to tackle some challenges this spring!

    Gorgeous Setting and Decent Acting.

    |
    Posted .

    Based on Cheryl Strayed’s real life experience, this movie is full of beautifully shot scenes throughout the Pacific Northwest – absolutely gorgeous. This is an epic hike of over 1,000 miles, but more than that, it is a soulful journey of discovery, healing and the inherent transformation of this woman as she discovers who she is. The many flashbacks throughout introduce us to her life - her ex, her mother, etc., and give us the very clear and understandable "why" of the story. Reese Witherspoon is amazing as the heroine in this, and it is easy to forget she is acting. While she is still not my favorite actor, she has definitely jumped up the list, she has shown some great talent in this movie. There are a few cringe-worthy points in the movie, as well as some comically appropriate points, which all flow together naturally and never give the impression of staged or forced. I loved this movie, and I think almost everyone can identify and relate to this journey, even if only recognizing the desire to do something similar at some point.

    Great visuals; mediocre soundtrack

    |
    Posted .

    This is an overall good movie with a good story-line but the audio is not up to the rest of the movie. Practically all of the audio comes from the center channel with no really enveloping sound. This is a dialog driven movie but there was plenty of opportunity to use the surrounds to give a sense of spaciousness to the great outdoor scenes. Even the front L?R channels were used minimally.

    I love true stories. Looked for this movie on Hulu, youtube, everywhere. But you have to pay to watch it. So I thought might as well just buy it. They give you 4k and Blu-ray. I don't have a 4k, but do have a blu-ray player. This movie is amazing. Pick up curb side was a breeze.

    Its a love-letter to the Pacific NW.

    |
    Posted .

    The cinematography is a love-letter to the Pacific Northwest catching truly remarkable desert vistas of Theachapi Pass, CA, the Modoc Plateau, CA and the Nevada High Plains Desert that adjoins the Trail, the “Boot Loss” Incident with Mount Hood in the background, the west rim of Crater Lake, Oregon and the Bridge of the Gods where the Pacific Crest Trail crosses the Columbia River from Oregon to the State of Washington. This is a story of a “mixed-up” woman’s rediscovery of her self-worth – her 94 day 1100 mile trek ultimately allowed herself to seek mush needed self-redemption, and escape from her wild and “lost” past. The end is a wishful flash-forward that in time she would remarkably experience. Even though the film is a “bit-rough” it does contain a wonderful uplifting message. Caution: This film is for “mature” Adults only.

    This is a very good film which is only enhanced by the 4k picture quality, as there are plenty of dazzling scenes in addition to the interesting true story. If you're intrigued by the film or are already a fan and considering this, I would say go with the best picture quality version which is this one.

    A stellar performance from Witherspoon

    |
    Posted .

    Though I enjoyed the performance from Reese Witherspoon, the movie as a whole drags a lot. It was a good movie and it is a bio picture, so I do account for that. You want to see where it goes throughout the movie so when it ends it is bittersweet but you just wanted a little more. I would recommend this to others but it is not for the young, and it is not a typical action adventure, though it is full of adventure. I may watch it again but it will be a while before I do. The extras were interesting and probably be seen first to get the scope of this movie. I saw the movie first.

    Amazing true life story

    |
    Posted .

    The wild is a wonderful film, truthful, rugged and at times difficult to watch. It's success is largely due to the incredible performance of its star, Reese Witherspoon. Seldom has a major Hollywood actor known for one genre taken on such an emotional soul-bearing role and succeeded so well. Her Academy Award nomination for this was so well deserved. The movie is one woman's trek thru the wilderness and the hardships she faces, emotionally and physically. Other than that, you should discover the stunning heart at the center of this film for yourself.

    The Wild in Wilderness

    |
    Posted .

    Jean-Marc Vallee (Dallas Buyer's Club, Young Victoria) was an unlikely match up with the spunky, blonde Reese Witherspoon but then so is Reese with the seriousness of the subject matter. Based on a memoir by Cheryl Strayed regarding her life cleansing hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, Reese had to scruff up her cutesy veneer to convince us she could ever be anything but the "It Girl." I was impressed by her transformation and determination. Giving credence to the film is Laura Dern as her mother in another intense, compelling performance.
