That’s why 90 percent of all corporate shares of stock are owned by 10 percent of the people. Kiyosaki believes it’s possible for anyone to move up into that 10 percent, but it takes a

    DIFFERENT FROM MOST INDIE-FAN FARE. A FILM THAT STANDS ON HIS OWN AND HEY 5 STARS AREN’T EASY., February 5, 2014

    Every year many indie films come out. My problem with these indie films is the level of varying consistencies of the characters. Most inevitably result in the character TRANSFORMING, there is something that changes the “poor thing” into “something else” While such films may also be entertaining, they lack a much needed continuity in characters. Often many films don’t even scratch the root level of their own theory and work on sheer amusement and drama purposes. To add to that ragatag they go ahead and introduce a catchy soundtrack. But seldom are they confident enough to express a determination to grab the full five stars.

    THIS IS WHERE “Spectacular Now” shines. The protagonist isn’t your run of the mill jock. Instead of frowning about his break up with his beautiful girlfriend, he’s excited to see how life will turn out different now. He is happy, ecstatic and anything but nervous right from the get go. Nothing can dampen his spirits. I thought the guy who played Sutter was very intriguing to watch. He is always drinking and is very self assured and comfortable with himself.

    The film never jumps out of its frame to grab your attention though it will keep you waiting for that moment where it will surprise you. What really worked for me was the likability of the actors and how different they were from one another and always remained so. The music is lovely, the sets are wonderful, the acting is very good and the director nailed it right from the get go. You will love it, trust me. Worth owning.

    Teenagers growing up: “The real hardship is me”, August 23, 2013

    This review is from: The Spectacular Now (DVD)
    “The Spectacular Now” (2013 release; 95 min.) brings the story of Sutter (played by Miles Teller), a HS senior who is enjoying life in the moment, with no worry in the world as long as he has his whisky flask or other alcoholic beverages nearby (which is all the time). One day Sutter gets dumped by his girlfriend Cassidy and after a drunken night out, he wakes up in someone’s front yard (not knowing how he got there). He gets found by Aimee (played by Shailene Woodley), a HS classmate of his. Aimee is the complete opposite of Sutter in every which way: withdrawn, smart, considerate. Yet Sutter takes an interest in her. Along the way, we learn that Sutter is dealing with `daddy issues’. His dad left when he was a little kid. Sutter confronts his mom to try and get his dad’s contact details. Will Aimee fall for Sutter? what about the other way around? And what’s with this mysterious past of Sutter’s dad? why did Sutter’s parents really break up? To tell you much more of this plot would surely ruin your viewing experience, you’ll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

    Several comments: this is the third feature film from director James Ponsoldt, who just last year brought us another top quality indie movie called Smashed (starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Aaron Paul). Interestingly, alcohol dependency also plays a critical role in this movie. The script is based on the book by Tim Tharp (I did not read the book, so cannot comment to what extent, if any, the movie’s plot deviates from the book). Despite the gorgeous movie poster and the cute trailer for the movie, “The Spectacular Now” is at times not an easy movie to watch, in the sense that Sutter is a mostly unlikeable and self-absorbed jerk whom you’d like to give a slap in the face and yell “wake up!”. When Sutter gets dumped by Cassidy, his boss at work comments “I really thought she would be the one to yank you out of neutral”, to which Sutter responds “But I’m in overdrive!’, completely clueless. All the more credit to Teller for playing this character with authority and credibility. But what about Woodley’s performance! After playing lead in TV’s “The Secret Life of the American Teenager”, she burst out of nowhere on the big screen a few years ago in “The Descendants” (playing George Clooney’s on-screen daughter). It is Woodley’s screen time that makes this movie as enjoyable as it is in the end. And if you wonder about that quote I put in my review title: just watch the movie…

    This movie made a splash when it debuted at the Sundance film festival earlier this year, and it’s easy to see why. So glad this finally made it to Cincinnati. This opened here today at the local art-house theatre, and the matinee screening that I saw this at was very well attended, I am happy to say. I read somewhere that this movie was shot on a budget of just $2.5 mill., mere peanuts in Hollywood terms, and proving once again you don’t needs a comic action hero or a $200 mill. budget to make a movie that engages the audience. Bottom line: if you are in the mood for a top quality indie movie that is miles away from your standard Hollywood fare, you cannot go wrong with this. “The Spectacular Now” is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    4 1/2 stars: Spectacular Wow!, August 31, 2013

    This review is from: The Spectacular Now (DVD)
    This is a theatrical review. There may be spoilers.

    I think I will have to clear room on my Top Ten list for 2013 for this beautiful little film about two teenagers finding each other. Director James Ponsoldt has affectionately taken Tim Tharp’s novel and slowly allows the characters to fall in love while the audience watches. I can’t say enough about Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley’s strong chemistry together which results in strong performances. Nothing seems like dialog, just extemporaneous words flowing from their mouths.

    Sutter (Teller) is a high school senior who is perhaps best known as the class clown. He’s funny, easily approachable and fun to be around. He’s not a jock nor the smartest kid in school. But he likes school. His biggest problem is that he is drunk most of the time. Sometimes just pleasantly drunk, sometimes very drunk. One day after a party, he shows up on the lawn of a classmate he barely knows. Aimee (Woodley) helps her mom deliver newspapers and her never-seen mom got in late, so Aimee scoops up Sutter and off they go delivering papers at 6 AM.

    The casting is perfect for this movie. Both actors (and supporting actors as well) look and talk like high school seniors. Neither are the traditional Hollywood studs and starlets you typically find in movies like this. Shirts do come off, but the setting is right when they do. While I suspect their looks were purposely dressed down, they look…well…average. So does Sutter’s ex-girlfriend and his best friend. So does Aimee’s friend. How refreshing.

    As the shy Aimee and extroverted Sutter spend more time together, bad and good characteristics rub off on each other. Each helps the other confront their mothers. In Sutter’s case, his mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh) won’t tell him about his father’s whereabouts. It’s been years since he’s heard from him. I expected the bomb to be dropped that dad is in prison or something. You know, more Hollywood. When he eventually gets the phone number from his married sister (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), he and Aimee make the 3 hour drive. Unfortunately dad (Kyle Chandler) is a drunk womanizer, pretty much like his mother suggested.

    No matter how old we are, everyone can remember that first love. It never leaves our memory. I can promise that “The Spectacular Now” will give those memories a bit of a jolt. This is an authentic film about young love. Highly recommended.

    Better than the first two RD books, May 31, 2003
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing: What the Rich Invest in, That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! (Paperback)
    In this third of the of the RD/PD series Kiyosaki discusses investing. He shows how he went from a negative net worth to millions. He discusses the importance of having a plan. I like the fact that he emphasizes the importance of having a mission in your business. Kiyosaki also discusses the importance of having a safety net in your investment plan as a back up to the aggressive real estate, business and stock investing.
    Good book and the best of the three in my opinion.

    A must for those who want to be Financially Independent, June 24, 2000

    This review is from: Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing: What the Rich Invest in, That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! (Paperback)
    This book continues from where Kiyosaki left off in Cashflow Quadrant, his 2nd book in the trilogy (now complete with Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing).
    In his 1st book Rich Dad Poor Dad, Kiyosaki addressed the differences in mindsets between the Rich and the Poor. Then, in his 2nd book Cashflow Quadrant, he spoke on the 4 quadrants from which one can generate income. To be wealthy, Kiyosaki recommended that we learn to generate our incomes from the “B” (Business-owner) and “I” (Investor) quadrant as opposed to the “E” (Employee) and “S” (Self-employed) quadrant.
    In his 3rd book Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing, Kiyosaki tells how he got started in his investment journey, starting with nothing, and in fact at one stage, with a negative net worth. Most of us, having read his first 2 books, would have wondered if we could have embarked on our journey to become financially independent without much resource at hand. In this book, Kiyosaki shows how anyone can get started and how it does not take money to make money. He teaches how time is more important than money; how investing in one’s self and getting an education and experience precedes excessive cash; how having a plan is more important than being in a hurry to make money.
    This is not a book for those who want hot tips and quick fixes. This is a book on mindsets. Kiyosaki plants ideas and provides a road-map. The reader must take the first step and learn to navigate his/her own journey.
    What I like about this book, is Kiyosaki’s concept of being an Ultimate Investor, a “selling-investor”. The Ultimate Investor creates deals and businesses that the public hunger for and are willing to pay a premium to acquire a share of. With the internet, it has never been easier to create businesses and deals which one can take public.
    As in all his other books, Kiyosaki’s book is worth reading again and again. I would also recommend that one reads Robert Allen’s Multiple Streams of Income in conjunction with Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing.

    One of the Best I Have Read, May 2, 2001
    By 

    This review is from: Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing: What the Rich Invest in, That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! (Paperback)
    I’ve read close to 60 books on Personal Finance, Investing, and How-To-Be-Rich-types and this one is one of the best I have read. I have enjoyed Robert Kiyosaki’s other books, but this one is the best, in my opinion, because he reviews many of his principles from his previous books just in case this may be the first of his books that you are reading.
    This is not a *HOW-TO* book on HOW to become wealthy or which steps to take to become wealthy. Like the author states, this book is about the INVESTOR, not specific strategies. To become truly wealthy you have to do two things. First, you NEED to change how you think, not just about money but about all areas of your life. Why go after riches if your marriage is in trouble or you don’t spend enough time with your children? Secondly, you NEED to take different actions. If your last 5 years were miserable, then your next 5 years will be the same unless you DO something different. If at least 95% of the people in this country are not wealthy then you cannot do what 95% of people do. You have to do what the other 5% do; people WILL tell you you are crazy or what you are doing won’t work. This happened to me and I am GLAD I did not listen to those people who still work at a job (I don’t).
    Most people do not Incorporate, most people do not invest in mutual funds and stocks correctly (they buy high and sell low), most people do not know how to buy real estaste, and most people know little about taxes, accounting, and personal finance. If one book was to be written about all those subjects in a general sense, it would still be thousands of pages long.
    Robert’s genius is that with his “Rich Dad/Poor Dad” metaphor, he gets the average reader to realize that it is not some magic formula or some great unattainable secret, but that it is our responsibility to go out and learn what the rich do and WHY they do it.
    I never thought I would read a book about the Investor that would have given me this many new ideas. A must have for those who want to get out of the “rat race.”
    Beware the negative reviews regarding this book because they are written by people who “don’t get it.” You either “get it or you don’t.” Reviews written by people who have not read the book and have not been there are a waste of your time.
    Like I said, I’ve been there, I own and have read this book twice already. People WILL put you down in obvious or subtle ways if you go for your dreams. Don’t listen to the 95%, listen to the 5% that have made it.
    Good luck and may all your dreams come true.
