Like a Norman Rockwell painting.

A nostalgic and sentimental fantasy (journey), based on the historical, and the political climate of the time.

An absolutely lovely, and well-cast movie. Almost Capra-esque, in the way this ordinary Joe, fights, for truth, justice, and the American way... and gets the girl, too.

Reminiscent of an actual post war movie THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES (1946), where a returning soldier loses his arm in the war.

A touching swan song, for the gentle and endearing Martin Landau, who we lost in 2017.

Inspirational, and heartwarming, this is truly, Jim Carey's finest hour.

One of the best portray of what humanity is ever let on motion picture

I heard about this movie just the other day, my 1st reaction was, "Ow! A Jim Carry movie I haven't yet seen! There should be no such thing." This movie presented the opportunity for romance as Notebook, Serendipity and other such movies that for me are rally stupid, but being a Jim Carry movie, I was still interested as a moth is of light.

Romance is undoubtedly one of the main human concerns this movie lays out for it's viewers, at least 5 main ones, not even the most important one. I am not gonna start enumerating them describing about how important and sensitive these subjects are, I'd be boring to most people and it wouldn't do to this piece of art much justice.

This is a movie hard to describe for it's quality in words so that one that has not seen it to understand. I can only think about one way. If an alien race would want to know us through 10 books, 10 songs and 10 movies that the human race has ever made as autobiographic, this movie in my humble opinion should be in that top 10.

It's strive of describing the complexity and paradoxical form of the human mind and the human feelings is pretty much spot on. I mean, above all the moment in court when the character Jim portrayed decided not to be a coward anymore, just right there on the spot, his hand trembling on the glass while he was still deciding... that for me was the most vivid way of describing how the human race takes big decisions, either they are good or bad in the end, but almost always filled with crippling fear. Either that fear defeats us and we succumb to it or we manage to act against it, against the instinct of self preservation, it's entirely circumstantial, and varies as much from person to person as in the specific moment in that person's life those decisions come; as everyone of us ultimately is in constant change, may it be of maturity or otherwise, not just physical but emotional and psychological too. And by learning this faster and faster with every generation, we grow as a civilization.

Clearly Underrated

The Majestic, clearly underrated, easily falls within my top 10 favorite dramas. Director Frank Darabont brings yet another wonderful story to life with great performances by a great and talented cast. No matter how many times I watch it, the movie still plays on my emotions.

Although some people care little for Jim Carrey's comedy, I've always felt that his comedic talents were genuine. Seeing him in a serious role gives me even more respect for him as a performer. Carrey's character, Peter Appleton is somewhat a mystery to the viewer and the story gives you a "what if" feeling throughout most of the movie that keeps you wondering which life is real.

Especially since his passing, the great Martin Landau's performances in this movie will bring you to tears. David Stiers has always given solid characters with his performances and without fail, brings the humble Doc Stanton to The Majestic. Playing against Jim Carrey's character, the antagonists (Bob Balaban, Hal Holbrook, Shawn Doyle and the late Daniel von Bargen) do a great job giving the conflict. There are many great lines (I forget) and scenes that give you the emotional roller-coaster ride experience many films fail to deliver. Top it off with a great ending, this movie will not disappoint.
