3.0 out of 5 stars Giant? Giant perhaps in its neglect of Jett...
While I'm still working on my glowing review for Rebel Without a Cause, I think I'll do this one for Giant. To say it bluntly, the film left me disturbed and unsettled, as movies generally do when I don't feel they've been finished. Whatever happened to Jett? It's not enough for me to see him lying in a drunken stupor under a fallen table. His part of the story needed to...

5.0 out of 5 stars Giant Actors=Giant Movie, June 3 2003
By A Customer
Ce commentaire est de: Giant (DVD)
If you are a fan of James Dean, Rock Hudson, or Elizabeth Taylor, this movie is definitely for you. It is a great showcase of talented actors coming together to create a great story. And seeing as James Dean only starred in 3 movies in his short life, this movie is worht buying just to see one of his great performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars The eyes of Texas are upon you, you cannot turn away!, Oct. 30 1999
By A Customer
Ce commentaire est de: Giant (VHS Tape)
A classic film epic of the fifties that blesses the Edna Ferber novel. Here's the way we want to see two late cinema greats, Rock Hudson and James Dean. George Stevens has all the right ingredients necessary here to make an entertaining and unforgettable picture.

James Dean literally steals the movie and give the performance of his life as Jett Rink.his on and off screen battles for recognition explode in Giant and steal the show away from the Benedicts(Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor).

I loved this movie from the first time that I saw it, and, now, 50 years later, it is still a great movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars A history of Texas during the oil drilling years, Nov. 17 2013

Ce commentaire est de: Giant (Sous-titres franais) (Sous-titres français) (DVD)
A lot of good acting, including from James Dean. Odd that Sal Mineo would be in a second movie with him before dean died in a tragic auto accident. This movie, like East of Eden, provides insight into Dean's capability of becoming a great actor. The story line revolves around Rock Hudson, a Texas rancher, marriage to and life with outsider Elizabeth Taylor. I liked the part in a diner when grandfather Rock fights a redneck for insulting his part-Mexican grandson while a jukebox blares out Yellow Rose of Texas. I guess that is what Texas is all about, eh?

While the plot was good,
the movie was far too long and in
places downright boring.. However the great
acting from its' cast managed to hold
my interest

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a Giant, May 6 2001

Ce commentaire est de: Giant (VHS Tape)
One of the worst movies ever made about Texas and Texans. Dreadful. Awful. Laughable acting and a silly script. Boring but good for a laugh. James Dean as a Texas cowboy indeed.
