Nothing new, yet compelling.

How much does a movie's originality in terms of storyline play into it's ultimate, overall quality? Should a film be seen only in terms of the movies that have come before it?

From it's title and poster to the actual film itself, Kodachrome sets itself up to be THAT kind of a road trip movie. The kind that features Hollywood jaw lines gazing into the setting sun as your quintessential bright red convertible speeds through a quiet countryside. This is accompanied with that melodious Indie track that rounds out the scene. Kodachrome is most definitely about something; it has meaning, it has purpose. The performances are affecting. The direction is largely unobtrusive and contents itself with letting the script do all the talking, exuding a tenderness that pervades and persists throughout the entire film.

Yet, all of these accomplishments are left denied by the aforementioned screenplay which not only resorts to a fundamental premise that is unoriginal but dialogue that routinely divulges into the perceived cliches of the 'road trip' movie. Characters repeatedly break into melancholy monologues about love, life and art, making biting observations on the human condition. From afar, the plot unfurls predictably and there is nary a moment where the viewer is surprised. Also, as a movie where the narrative is driven by the praise for tradition film format and analog technology, and despite having been aptly shot in 35mm film, photography as an art form itself does not play a more central role in dictating the nature of the storytelling. Given it's narrative simplicity, the experience could have been unique if the origins and vitality of preserving the old art form were entwined into the story, serving as an effective case for the preservation of the film format.

While these are my qualms with the movie, there is no denying that it is constructed with care and an eye for detail that could easily have been left out. The characters are fairly well realized through whom the movie commendably balances the humour with the drama. The performances manage to convey the gravity of the story and the simple confidence with which the movie progresses is sure to engage most viewers. Ultimately, Kodachrome stands as an undemanding, welcoming road trip movie; you won't feel new feelings, but you will revisit old ones, much the same way you might look at some personal Kodak photograph of old.

Absolutely loved it.

Great movie, of course a movie with any terminal illness will be somewhat predictable. What's not to get, we don't need plot twists or surprise endings, that's not the premise. But it still doesn't mean the scenario has any less sentiment. Jason and Ed in a film, I'm watching it, both are incredibly talented actors. Anyone who has experienced anything remotely close to situations in this story will be wrenched with emotion. Two big thumbs up for me.

"Spoiler Alert" Absolutely amazing, but predictable.

The film and story is very predictable. But it's still amazing and absolutely one of the best to come from Netflix.

It's not a typical road-trip movie, and as a fan based film for Kodachrome it dosent really do it justice. But if you put all that aside it's a beautifully story.

A broken down father of a man Ben Ryder (Ed Harris) who is a famous photo-journalist, who have dedicated his life to capture the moment and so to say "freeze time" forgotten all about living in the moment and doing so ruined all relations with his son Matt Ryder (Jason Sudeikis) and the rest of his family. Diagnosed with lever cancer Ben Ryder want his son to take him on the journey from New York to Kansas, where the last shop to develop kodachrome is ending the kodachrome service. Matt Ryder the son who haven't spoken to his father in 10 years is confronted by his father's nurse Zooey (Elizabeth Olsen) that this is his fathers wish.

Working as a music label represents Matt's career stands at a breaking point, Ben's Manger wants to arrange a meeting with the dream band that can save Matt's career, but only if he agrees to go on this trip with his father. Despite the hate he have for his father Matt agrees and the journey begins.

The cast of the movie is in my opinion perfect. The son Matt Ryder played by (Jason Sudeikis) who is mostly known for his comedy rolls in (We're The Miller's) (Horrible Bosses one and two) suit this more serious roll very nicely with his arrogant yet funny style of acting. Which surprised me to be honest.

The movie is very predictable but with a dying father and all it kind of set the directions of the story from the beginning. Other than that I like the overall atmosphere in the movie and it's only because of the ending I give it 9 and not 10 stars

Do not read this part if you don't want to know the ending! Instead of Zooey coming in at the end while looking alone at his father's last pictures and ruin it all by steeling the moment "do you want some company" it should have ended with Zooey coming in silently taken a seat right next to him taken his hand and just looked at the pictures as the movie ended. Instead of this cliche of a ending where it suddenly feels more about the women of his dreams instead of the roller-coaster journey that was the life of his father.
