    a film so unique, intoxicating and bizarre that it not only demands another viewing, but is also forgivable as a satirical comedy where the jokes eventually take the back seat.

    If you like to be scared, if you like to laugh, and if you like to learn a thing or two at the movies, this absolutely cannot be missed.

    The plot isn't so bad, but the pace of storytelling is too slow which makes people bored. Certain moments are so obvious and unnecessary for the main plot. I would've fast-forwarded those moments if it was an online streaming. The ending looks like implying a sequel, not sure if this movie will get one

    This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.

    my favorite of all the home improvement shows, and the only one that you know will show you the latest and greatest techniques/products in the home improvement industry. bob Vila made the show popular, Steve Thomas made it for the everyman, and Kevin o'Connor has yet to make his legacy. regulars like norm Abram, tom Silva, Richard Trethewey, and roger cook are the best in their individual fields, many of them have had their trades in their family for many years. it wasn't until later in the series that they ventured away from Massachusetts, but eventually they went out of the country to London, as well as having a couple shows in CA, one in HI, TX, LA, FL, and many other locations. with these guys you know you can count on a craftsmanship that just isn't approached in more recent shows which breeze over complex projects. a truly classic and indispensable show. now if they released archived episodes on DVD or made them available for download then they're really be on to something...

    concept show that actually helps the audience, gives us useful information and has lasted for over 20 years on TV.I have recently watched the "Boston" series, where homeowners can make $2,000.00 per month renting their property, so renovating an historic brownstone from 1875 is well worth it. Having lived in Boston, I can assert that the architecture and surroundings are both unique and storybook-like; trees on Commonwealth Avenue and at the Boston Public Garden are preserved, as opposed to NY or other large sprawling metropolitan areas.While aspects of the show are sometimes a bit technical, this show is well worth it for anyone who wishes to improve the quality of their home, and appreciate its value. This show and "Sell this House" (regularly shown on A&E cable) are the ONLY two reality shows I watch; they are both educational and interesting. Highly recommended. 9/10.

    I grew up watching this and I STILL watch it. One of the best things about This Old House is that it has changed very little since it first aired in 1979 (other than the occasional new host). When Bob Vila left, I was pretty disappointed because he WAS This Old House, but after I warmed up to Steve, I could see that it didn't really matter, that Steve was just as good as Bob and they were still doing all kinds of cool renovation jobs on historic old houses, and that's the most important thing.I was surprised to see in this season's premiere that Steve has now left and there is another new host (I missed the last few episodes of last season). He seems a little stiff and unsure of himself now, but I'm sure he'll relax and turn out just fine as Steve did.It's great to see some of the older shows from the early 80s and compare the styles of then with the styles of today. It would be really interesting to see the guys go and redo a house that they did back around 1981 and bring it into the current style!People can make sarcastic jokes and laugh all they like, but this show ROCKS!

    I've watched this show for a long time, and it's still the best. Granted, Norm needs to wear something other than plaid, and Steve can be annoying, but it's fun to watch these guys inflict terror to homeowners in the form of lines like "We gotta replace all this" and "It's expensive, but it's worth it". Tops had to be when they were in London and asked everyone they met "Would you let me buy you a cup of tea?"
