I love that movie! We actually own it on dvd. My husband's best friend bought it for him because he said we had to watch it. When we said we loved it he bought us the soundtrack, too, lol. That may have been a little overkill. If you can get a hold of a copy of the dvd, they have some pretty funny special features, too, including "Commentary: The Musical." The cast sings their commentary through the whole film.
I didn't know NPH had such a great voice either, but found out after watching the movie that he's been on broadway.

"August Rush", it was very very good, 10 out of 10 for me.
You may like it if you like music, mystery, drama and suspense.
You may not like it if you like car chases, helicopters, gun fights, tanks, horse riding or slapstick humor.

It's not a chick flick.
It touched my heart. I cried, though, I'm not sure if it was because I was so happy or so sad.
I definitely categorized it as a chick flick. I loved it and I cried too. ...and I watched it twice. I don't mind seeing it again as I love chick flicks. :))

I read a book once, I wish I could remember the title. It was how, we LIVE ANOTHER LIFE, for the hours we spend in watching our movies. How movies borrow time from us living our own lives. (which is why I like movies! we all need a break once in a while)

Didn't you love the last scene when the little boy smiled? It just touched me.
I was surprised Robin Williams played such an evil character. I'm more used to him playing genuine good character kind of characters.

Awwweeee, that's kind of sweet you know.
Maybe I don't know what a 'chick flick' is? Usually I think of a girl/woman and it centers on her 'romantic notions' with a boy/man. To me, this was more about a child. Then again, like I said, I might just not know what a chick flick is ...?

I've only seen the movie once, quite a while ago. I couldn't even remember him being in it, so I looked it up on IMDB to see which character he played. Someone wrote a very interesting character biography on him! I don't think it's quite accurate to the actual storyline...

I am never surprised by Robin Williams, anymore. I believe he can do anything.

My favorite role of his is in "The Fisher King." Brilliant!

I loved that movie, too. He was also super in Dead Poet's Society.

And, yes, I agree. I think he can do anything. He's such a versatile and talented man.

Just watched "The Exorcist III" with George C. Scott. Scary, but I liked it.
