    "It's too early to say whether Solo: A Star Wars Story would be the best Ron Howard film of all time. Box office-wise, this could be his top-grosser. That being said, the film is enjoyable to watch and a great addition to the growing universe of Star Wars. And if this is any indication, I would say Solo could end up Howard's best film ever."

    "This is possibly Russel Crowe's best performance after Gladiator and I thoroughly enjoyed watching A Beautiful Mind. John Nash is a great man with his inner demon and Crowe brought it out magnificently on screen. I didn't know it was helmed by Ron Howard until I stumbled into this site. And now I want to get a copy of this film!"

    "At first, I was hesitant to watch this movie because it attacks some people's beliefs and their religion. However, after watching The Da Vinci Code, I caught a glimpse of possible scenarios concerning Christianity and its past and future. But then, this is just a movie and filmed for entertainment. And on that premise, I can honestly say that I loved the movie. Fast-paced and unpredictable. Great cast and a superb director."

    "Tom Hanks is back as Robert Langdon. Angels & Demons follows the tradition of The Da Vinci Code with its fast-paced action and unpredictable twist. Forget about what you know about religion and just watch this film."

    "Ron Howard did a great job on Cinderella Man. Not only because of the fight scenes. He captures the real story of the Great Depression. Russel Crowe and Renee Zellweger brought their characters to life with their performances. Oh, Paul Giamatti was also great in this one. 5 stars for me!"

    "Ron Howard has truly emerged as on of the greatest film makers of our time and his offering In the Heart of the Sea offers more proof to support this statement. Strikingly beautiful, In the Heart of the Sea is a sweeping epic that is very well cast and acted. Two thumbs up."

    "Well, the first two Robert Langdon films worked so it's not surprising that Inferno will also be a good film? Tom Hanks really owned Langdon and it seemed that Dan Brown created this character with Tom Hanks in mind. With Ron Howard, this movie would make many more "best list.""

    "Well, Jim Carrey was in his element in Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas so it is an indication that the movie itself would be good. But it wouldn't be half as good, in my opinion, if another director took this project. Ron Howard brought the book to life!"
