Real Estate Lessons in Movies: Up (2009) 0

You can pretty much always count on Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios to create films that are great for kids and adults alike, and they certainly did it again with Up.

Real Estate in Movies: Rosemary’s Baby (1968) 13

Rosemary’s Baby is a surreal and provocative movie with real estate playing supporting role in the movie in form of The Dakota building.

Real Estate Lessons in Movies: House of Sand and Fog (2003) 0

A home is so much more than just the place you live. It can be a symbol of hope for what’s to come. Or it can be the holder of all the experiences and memories you’ve had with loved ones.

Bugsy-cover-dvd

Real Estate Lessons in Movies: Bugsy (1991) 4

Bugsy is a decently acted, thought-out, well-put together movie, however it fails to be all that engaging or enjoyable. Also, real-estate does have a role to play in Bugsy.

The-Notebook1

Real Estate Lessons in Movies: The Notebook (2004) 8

The Notebook teaches us about all kinds of things – passion, young love, sacrifice, the list goes on. But it also has some lessons to share on an unexpected subject… real estate.

Movies with Realtors: Cocaine: One Man’s Seduction (1983) 7

First off, let me say that the beginning that saying that “Cocaine: One Man’s Seduction” is about real estate is like saying “Trainspotting” is a story about Scottish youths taking a trip to London.

Real Estate Lessons in Movies: What Planet Are You From? (2000) 5

With the recent passing of Mike Nichols, it seems cruel to pay tribute to a man that brought us “The Graduate” (1967) and “Catch 22” (1970) with a review of a film that was widely panned by critics at release, and a financial disaster to boot.

Movies with Realtors: Are We Done Yet? (2007) 0

If you’ve ever seen one of Ice Cube’s films before, you know what to expect when sitting down to watch ARE WE DONE YET? Delinquent behaviour, silliness galore, a touch of potty humour and lots of rap music.

Real Estate Lessons in Movies: The Haunted Mansion (2003) 0

Eddie Murphy does not care in the slightest what people think of his acting career and that’s good, because this film is unspeakably bad and is only viable as a tool for wantonly consuming ninety minutes from your life that you shall never get back.

Empire-of-the-ants3

Real Estate Lessons in Movies: Empire of the Ants (1977) 0

This is not a good movie. It aspires to mediocrity and fails. The acting is generally bad, the dialogue is forgettable at best, the characters aren’t very interesting, and the special effects are so bad they’re the highlight of the film.
