Okay, i'm a fan of twilight which i will admit no matter how much i love it, isn't academy award winning. But this movie was absoulute perfection. the writing was so good, it really made you think, and it was such a good story. matt damon rocked by the way. anyway if you haven't seen  it you're missing out on a great film

As a professional mathematician, I can appreciate the appearance of the mathematical prodigy Will Hunting in the most unusual of places. Mathematics is one area where prodigies appear so that aspect of the story is plausible. Hunting is working as a janitor at MIT when he rather casually solves a difficult math problem that Professor Gerald Lambeau has posed to his students. Will's past has been a difficult one, as a youth he bounced from foster home to foster home and was abused. He has had several …

Will Hunting is a super genius who comes along maybe a few times in a century. Unfortunately that talent seems to be going to waste since Will works as a university janitor and spends the rest of his time getting drunk and into fights with his friends.     One of the top math professors at the university puts up a math problem that he suspects maybe by the end of the semester, one student can solve. He is surprised that it is immediately solved by an unknown "student." To try …

Pros: ...     Cons: ...     The Bottom Line:   "I can hang out with my friends, do the good times ever end?  Yeah I can watch Good Will Hunting by myself"  ~LUDO     You certainly don't expect a story to be so enjoyable when two relative unknowns put pen to paper, but with Good Will Hunting, Matt Damon & Ben Affleck did just that.  Then they compounded the deal by staring in the lead roles, bring even …

I avoided seeing "Good Will Hunting" for years due to its reputation as a "bad pic disguised as an Indie flick". Then, one night, I decided to try it. How bad could it be? If it was awful, I figured, at least with Affleck it oughta be funny (in an unintentional way).    But guess what? It wasn't funny. It wasn't bad. In fact, it was pretty near great.     The story has been done before, albeit in slightly different form, so don't look for anything too special …

Like everybody else, I appreciate knowing in advance if a film is poor so I can avoid it. However, I prefer to "discover" an especially enjoyable film rather than know much about it in advance. That was true of this film as well as of two others, My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Bend It Like Beckham. Although I consider none of them a "great" film, I thoroughly enjoyed all three but for different reasons. Directed by Gus Van Sant and co-starring Matt Damon (Will Hunting) and Minnie Driver (Skylar), …
