A Series of Unfortunate Events

Would have been a really good movie if 1) Jim Carry wasn't in it and 2)It didn't have that Tim Burty look to it. The story was neat. C+

Well I waited til now to do the review so I could let it sink in more before making rash statements.

Star Wars episode III

Well it was better that the first two prequals, although that is not saying mcuh. I enjoyed the film but I will not say it was great. It still suffered from alot of problems.

There were still pleanty of cring worthy script moments adn I sometimes felt the pacing was wrong. Sometimes sceens did not seem to flow well at all.

I will admit the action was alot better. Although I had built up an image in my head of the final fight (when they said they would eb fighting in lave I thought they ment literally, having them fight while using the force to keep the lava off of them...perhaps I watch too much anime.

It was certainly an up point in the weak trilogy and it had some cool moments.

I will finish by quoting a certain someone.

"Funny story, the script called for me to say yes but I gave it a twist"

B

and for a brake in all this Star wars

The Crying Game

Ok I already knew the twist thanks to Mayor Quimby but that did not stop me from enjoying the film. Besides I was not to shocked by the twist anyway.

Well I enjoyed this film quite alot although I did have a few problems. For one I have not yet met an Englsih person who could not tell the differece between a Scotish accent and an Irish one.

Anyway I thought it wasa  good film but will wait to give it a ranking after another viewing.

Revenge of the Sith:

I first saw Episode 3 on opening night (on my birthday! What a great present!). The screening was totally sold out and the atmosphere was great. It's unusual for a British audience to be so vocal and involved with a film in the cinema, but there was lots of cheering and clapping throughout!
Basically, I LOVED the film. I truely enjoyed this film probably more than any other. You may laugh, but as the film ended I was overwhelmed and couldn't help but let a few tears roll down my cheek. Also I had a strange pins-&-needles sensation in my arms, probably from pure joy!

I think episode 3 has raised the bar for the entire saga! You could sense that everybody in the cinema was genuinely moved, thrilled, and disturbed at the appropriate moments.

My favourite moments were:

The bombshell revelation delivered by Palpatine during the opera scene. It's never actually stated for sure, but I assume that Palpatine is the appentice who killed Darth Plaigus in his sleep!? Did he also manipulate the midichlorians to create Anakin! The whole saga is turning into even more of a family affair! It's a wise decision that Lucas only subtley hints at this instead of a "Anakin............I am your father!" speech from Palpatine. Anyway, a genius twist that I never saw coming!

I thought the duel was incredible. As excellent as the actual fighting was I think my favourite parts were the exchanges between Anakin and Obi-Wan at the end. "You were my brother Anakin!...I loved you" And that fantastic, haunting moment where Anakin shouts (as he is being burnt alive) "I HATE YOU"

Mace's death scene was incredible. Brutal and shocking, I was stunned to see the events unfolding on the screen. Palpatines transformation was great (would have scared the shit out of me when I was younger!) "ABSOLUTE POOOOOOOOOOOOOOWER!!!!!!"

Basically the entire final 10 or 15 minutes was pure genius! I thought that intercutting the 'birth' of Vader with that of Luke & Leia was fantastic! The moment when the iconic black mask is sealed shut and Vader takes his first weazing breath.........Incredible you could hear a pin drop in that cinema!
Lots of people have commented on Vader's "Noooooooooooooooooooo" I liked it. I loved how Vader makes the room skake and implode before breaking free of his skakles like Frankenstien. It was pure retro cool.

The visual effect were stunning, often breathtaking. The opening shot! The moment when Palpatine & Yoda rise upwards into the senate chamber in the middle of thier fight! STUNNING! The new alien planets looked great too. Utapau and Kashyyk were beautiful. I'd like to see more of the planets shown briefly during the "Order 66" montage too!

Ok those are the main highlights I can think of right now (there's loads more though). I'd be lying if i said everyhting was perfect. I'm not a blind fan, so here are the few (and mainly trivial) parts I wasn't too keen on.

The voices of the battle droids have changed. I've now seen the film 3 times and they are starting to grow on me, but they just seemed a bit odd at first! Same with that Nemodian who was captian of Grievous's ship in the opening scenes. He sounded like a surfer dude or something! "Magnatize! Magnatize" An odd decision from Lucas there.

I thought that Kit Fisto and those other Jedi were killed WAY to easily by Palpatine. They went down in the space of a few seconds...like wimps! Not a fitting end for Fisto really. I heard you see him get his head cut off, maybe that'll be on the DVD? Hope so.

Maybe i'm being dumb but I don't think it was explained who Sifo Dias was in the end?! I assume it was Dooko but it doesn't quite fit. Maybe i'm missing something? Anybody have the answer?

Tactics are never irrelevant. How much do you know of swordsmanship? It's not just a matter of hacking merrily away at each other's swords until someone misses. The way you parry a blow has major significance to your defensive stance when the next blow falls. A bad parry might repel your foe's attack, but might also wonk up your wrist and/or leave you completely uncovered for the next one. And all in all, being higher up will increase your efficiency since your opponent will have a hard time pelting you with attacks (since it's exhausting to do it upwards continually). Swordfights are swordfights, no matter if one or both of the combatants are force users. The force doesn't nullify the advantage of having a higher stance. And in case you haven't noticed, some of the SW lines are rather formal, including this one. "I have the higher ground" is a pretty good argument of why Vader shouldn't try to lunge at Obi, and I don't really think it's a weird sentence at all, just a tad formal.
What Vader should have done was jump all the way over Obi and landed a bunch of meters higher up on the slope. Then he'd have the higher gound without getting in range of a lightsaber while getting there.

Absolutely nothing.  wink I'll admit that was a bad choice of words; what I meant to get across is that while in a standard fight Anakin would have been much more limited in his options, whereas his force powers give him much more leeway in choosing an attack strategy.

I just think it's an unnecessary line; perhaps I misread it and it wasn't supposed to be symbolic, but surely that's an indication of poor dialogue?

It was good Lucas dialogue. Everything's relative, after all. And yes, there was probably symbolism there.

Hmm...y'know, Anakin would have been a lot better off if he'd read the rules...he lost one limb by trying to dual-wield without the right feats and the other three provoking an AoO.

Man, I should lay off the DnD.

Fighter levels would get him the two-weapon fighting feats quicker.

Jedi guardian levels are what Anakin would really want, to max out his lightsaber damage.

I noticed that too. I assumed it was a bad cameo role. Lucas' son was in there somewhere as well, apparently.

Actually a good point. Fisto (bubble-eyes, right?) lasted a bit longer than the other two (he actually got to swing at Palpatine, give the man a medal) but probably because they weren't as prepared or as good as Windu or Palpatine.

I think that Lucas' son gets the cool role of that young Jedi who nearly makes it out of the temple when Bail Organa arrives and the Clones tell him to leave. I'm pretty sure that's him.

Talk about asking dad for a favour! Instead of "Dad, can you lend me a few quid?", it's "Daaaaaaad, can I play a jedi night in that film you're making, which will be viewed by millions of people across the globe and remembered for decades to come?"

"Oh, alright then Son, but eat your greens!"

Madagascar

Dreamworks Animation has had an okay track record with their CGI movies. The had 3 good films (Antz, Shrek and Shrek 2) and one really horrible one (Shark Tale). Now, Dreamworks has released the new film Madagascar. But is it any good? Read on.

The film is about four animals from the zoo. Alex (Ben Stiller), a lion who loves to show off for his fans. Marty (Chris Rock)the Zebra who has big dreams (because there always has to be a character with some). Gloria (Jada Pinkett Smith) the Hippo with sass. And Melvin (David Schwimmer), the graffe with a severe case of germ paranoia. Marty doesn't like the zoo life, and wants to go somewhere else. He escapes, and his friends must go after him. Eventually, after a couple incidents, they get captured and get shipped to parts unknown. Thanks to four pcychotic penguins, they go overboard and end up on the titular island, Madagascar.

This is when I would say hilarity ensues, but honestly, the hilarity started from the moment the fim began. The film is downright halarious, but doesn't reach the heights of Shrek 2, but comes close. The humor is rich and sometimes odd for a children's movie. For example:


Because I'm older, these jokes had me laughing, but also wondering how this ended up in a movie geared towards kids.

Other than that, the film was one of dreamwork's best and should not be missed.

Grade: B+

Howl's Moving Castle

Hayao Myazaki has never made a bad movie, and it would've been a damn shame to start now. Fortunately, that's not the case here. Myazaki has crafted yet another masterpeice, although not his best work, it's a masterpeice nonetheless.

The story is about a young woman named Sophie. She is a hatmaker who lives in london. On her way to visit her sister, she is harrased by a couple of soliders trying to get some action. Before anything could happen, a dashing young man saves her. This man is Howl. A person Sophie has heard about around the shop. They say he is a man who litteraly eats the hearts of beautiful women. Of course, Sophie doesn't consider herself to be beautiful(I thought she was!). Later on that night, she is visited by what might be one of the fattest evil witches ever. She give Sophie a terrible curse, which makes her 90 years old. Shocked by the transformation, Sophie leaves. On the way, she meets a scarecrow, who happens to be alive. She asks it to find her a place to stay, and that's where the titular castle shows up. I'd tell you more, but where would the fun be if I did?

I saw the film at the El capitan in dubbed form. Usually, anime fans hiss at this. But this dub was very professionally done(considering this dub was supervised by Pixar, I wouldn't doubt it). The animation was absolutely stunning. Everything was drawn in great detail, from the buildings in the background, to the castle itself.

I love how they handled   

Now for the not so great stuff. The film was way too short, it should've been like 20 minutes longer. It ended way too quickly. Also, Billy Crystal's ad libbing was noticeable, and I haven't even seen the Japanese version yet! Yeah yeah, "How do I know it's ad libbing when I haven't seen the original version?" It's just that a few lines sounded like ad libbing, especially when his character is off camera. But these are only minor quibbles.

In the end, Howl's Moving Castle is a fantastic film, that is enchanting, hartwarming, and at times, funny. I reccomend everyone to see it. It's the most amgical time at the movies this year thus far.

Some scenes are a little too intense for younger viewers however, as it might scare them. The film is appropriate for children 10 and over, but nothing under.

My  Chart of Myazaki's Best Movies:
1. Princess Mononoke
2. Nausicca Of The Valley Of The Wind
3. Howl's Moving Castle
4. Spirited Away

The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl- IN 3D!

Before you ask, I did not go to this movie voluntarily. I'd just like to clear that up.

It was just... bad. The acting was atrocious, the dialog was inconceivably clunky, and the plot felt like it was causing me Intracranial hemorrhage. It was that bad. I'll admit the part of the 3-D I was able to see was pretty cool, though. And it wasn't like National Treasure, in the way that you couldn't even laugh at it, the rediculous overacting was absolutely priceless.

The Graduate

This movie has been over-analyzed, over-exposed, and overrated. It's a social satire, it's a comedy, it's a drama...I get it. It's a fantastic movie, don't get me wrong, but once you start nitpicking and finding symbolism and combing over every detail and junk like that, you completely lose sight of what the film is essentially about. Like this guy did.

And what is this movie actually about? The generation gap, a "romance" between people of two different generations, true love? Yeah, I guess you could say that. But, when you get to the core of it, The Graduate is a film about a kid who has no idea what he's gonna do with his life. He's confused. And so he decides to have an affair with a woman, pretty much out of boredom, but ends up falling in love with the woman's daughter. It's a comedy with splashes of drama, that leaves you thinking and laughing and wanting more. As far as I'm concerned, the satire and "greater meaning" is just icing on the cake.

Anyway, onto the review.

The thing you have to know about the novel of "The Graduate" is that it's written almost entirely in dialogue and conversations. There's virtually no introspection, and almost no exposition. The characters develop through what they say and do. It's a great book because of that.

That said, you'd think that a movie adaptation of the book would offer no surprises. I mean, all you have to do is insert whole conversations from the book into the screenplay (which was actually done at certain points, more or less), throw in some stage direction, and you're done, right?

Wrong.

Don't get me wrong, so many of the lines from the book are in the movie (I think about 75% of the dialogue is lifted right from the book), but the acting and direction are what make this movie so unique. I mean, an adaptation of the novel could have easily become a bunch of actors walking around transcribing a book to an audience. But it didn't.

Like I started to say, the acting in the movie was great. Dustin Hoffman is great as Benjamin Braddock, a confused young man trying to figure out what he's going to do with the rest of his life. He's so innocent and naive, and brings life to the character. The late, great Anne Bancroft's Mrs. Robinson is essentially the antagonist (and she's spooky as the woman who seduces Ben), and Katherine Ross delivers a pretty nice (not great, but nice) performance as Mrs. Robinson's daughter, Elaine, who eventually becomes the love interest of Ben.

As for the direction, let's just say that Mike Nichols deserved his Oscar. He uses so many different directing techniques to tell the story. He uses interesting (sometimes distracting, but still interesting) angles, and, in the case of a scene where Ben and Elaine are on a date, gives the viewer (well, me, at least) the sense that they are watching the events unfold as a passerby, as an unwelcome guest. (In fact, he uses a wide-shot in this scene, not only focusing on Ben and Elaine but also on the busy city streets.)

That's not to say that the film is without its flaws. One complaint is that the dialogue is often droned out. Sometimes it's intentional, but in other cases, it just seems like a shoddy sound job. I guess this attributes to the whole "you're a passerby" factor, but it can be annoying if you don't listen closely enough.

As for the soundtrack by Simon and Garfunkel, it fits the movie perfectly ("Sound of Silence" is probably the most effective), although Nichols only makes use of about 4 songs from the duo. These 4 songs comprise the whole of the movie's soundtrack, and, if you're not a fan of folk music, then I'm sure it would grate on your nerves.

So, put short and sweet, The Graduate is a funny movie with heart and a message. But mostly, it's just fun to watch. It's entertaining; it acccomplishes what a good movie should.

In conclusion: Me likey.

A

Better than Spirited Away?  I'll have to see that.  Of course, I only got around to seeing Spirited Away for the first time a few weeks ago, so it may take me a while.

As for watching the dubbed version, good for you.  Miyazaki doesn't go through the trouble of having his films translated into English just so people can sit there reading subtitles when they should be watching the action.

I know I'm not the first or last to comment about this movie but...

Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith

Now I've seen the original three and this one. Not Episode 1 or 2. Well I saw the last 2 minutes of Episode 2. Anyway, I knew the who, what, when, where, and why plot of this movie. I mean everyone knows how it ends. So I wasn't surprised at all in this movie.

Now I read Entertainment Weekly all the time. And I read their review for this movie and I agree with them. They say that you don't see Anikan actually change into an evil person throughout the movie. He's just happy and nice one minute than all of a sudden he's under the emperor's power. I'm impressed that Lucas made the action sequences interesting without any blood whatsoever. When Samuel L. Jackson's character (I don't know how it's spelled) gets his hand cut off, there ain't no blood. And I was still intreged.

Now I knew that after a while that the Chancellor was the Emperor. And that he would eventually turn Anikan evil. But it that whole scene didn't go over that well. I mean I understand that Anikan was suppose to be all confused with the sides and stuff and that he would turn on the Jedi but they didn't make that clear. I mean the only time it's clear that he is confused is when the Chancellor is almost killed.


Now Padme, I am sorry that her lover ended up killing her and killed her will to live but, I didn't like her that much. I mean through the whole movie she is in that apartment doing mindless tasks and doesn't seem to want anything to do with the outside world. And then what really ticked me off was that she could only live for Anikan, but since he broke her heart she couldn't live for Luke and Leia. She wouldn't live for them. And that made me feel sorry for the babies.

Also gotta give a shoutout to Obi Won, Yoda, R2-D2, and of course Chewbacca. They were all awesome parts. I loved them all. (Was Frank Oz the voice of C3PO this time? Cause his voice was different. I'll go look for myself).

Overall this was a good movie and I did like it. I am a Star Wars fan but not the best one. Cause the whole Rebuplic vs. Jedi or whatever did confuse me. None the less, I like Episodes 4-6 better.

Lucas baby, you are a great director but you can't write the best dialouge.

Frank Oz is Yoda's voice.
