Dakota's 15 minutes? Nah they cast her cause they wanted a 'big name'. Her career is fine, she's got several new movies due to come out soon. She does guest appearances all the time, she was in an ep of CSI, and Friends, and Kim Possible, and Family Guy.

Disney still owns her and she still does the television series. It was a different animation group that did the sequel and they decided Daveigh was too old so they recast, but the group that does the show kept her. Her career is gonna be pretty limited now though, cause she made the mistake of selling her soul to Disney. That's why she wasn't able to be in The Ring 2 though she wanted to be. Something to do with red tape and paperwork on Disney's end. They didn't want their new little 'it girl' to play the bad guy in a horror flick.

Lilo & Stitch 2

Since i don't feel i've adequately whored this movie to the best of my ability i've come bearing framegrabs. Also  i'm reposting my plot synopsis in order to put the grabs into context.

Anyway, plot of the movie is, Stitch has been having nightmares about turning bad again, they terrify him since one of the dreams has him attacking Lilo physically.

         

Lilo is trying desperately to win a hula contest because her mother (who was revealed in the first movie to have been killed along with Lilo's father in a car accident) won the contest when she was Lilo's age.

But a glitch in Stitch's molecular structure causes him to lose control and go on wild destructive rampages at inopportune moments.



They're completely beyond his control but he fears his worse nightmare is coming true,



while Lilo just thinks he's wrecking things on purpose. This lead's to an argument. (An adorably hysterical argument since Lilo is 7 and emotionally Stitch is about the same, so it's a lot of "She's touching me!" "I'm not touching you!" and insults, "Fuzzball!" "Stupid head!" )



I don't want to spoil anything so i'll stop there, but it was very well done and had me in tears at some points. Poor Stitch, he was so sad. And he's pathetically adorable when he's sad. 




Disney so should be paying me.

(This is posted in 2 parts cause for some reason PEEL wouldn't let me post it all at once.)

Saved as JPEGS so the quality took a bit of a hit. The actual animation is on par with the original.

Pfft. That's the same plot from Mrs. Doubtfire. Get some new fucking ideas, Disney...

The first one was great, so I'll watch this eventually. I'll invite Samantha Darko over to read all of Lilo's parts, though. Yes, that's what I'll do. She'll have to bring a chaperone with her, of course. Stupid Jonathan Lipnicki.   roll eyes

I love the first Lilo & Stitch movie. I might rent the second movie to see what it is like.

I might go and see The 40 year Old Virgin soon. It looks good.

Stitch is an alien genetic experiment. And no there was not a sequel, Stitch The Movie was just an extended pilot for their television series, it was never meant to be a sequel.


...and Lilo and Stitch 2 was nothing like Mrs. Doubtfire.

Nibbler eats animals. Stitch eats candy. I like Nibbler. Seriously I loved the first Lilo and Stitch movie. But the series ruined the magic of it for me. And it drives me nuts. But seeing as how it looks interesting, I might check it out. Damn that Dakota Fanning...being so damn adorable...*throws arms up and mutters about actors always being interesting*.

Did Stitch fall down a well at the end, Venus? That sounds like it would actually make it worth watching.

The Island
Michael Bay has a lot of experience in annoying audiences. Pretty much everybody in the theatre had motion sickness by the end.

Ok, so I just saw "Charlie and the chocolate factory" and I must say, I think its better then the original.
The Ompa-lompas where great especially with burtens choice to have them all look the same. Johnny depp was great as Willy Wonka and the children where really well cast, I loved Augustas the most, every time I saw him I cracked up.
I think Dahl suits Burten fantastically they both have that twistedness to them and they now how to tell a story.


I Give this an,

This may be the funniest movie I've seen in ages. Steve Carrel is terriffic, and there's something for everyone, no matter what brand of comedy you prefer. A+

The 40 Year Old Virgin

I really enjoyed the movie. Steve Carrel was brilliant and funny in the movie. I am turning out to be a fan of him now. The hair-waxing scene was just hilarious on the way he screams and I like the music number in the end.

you do realise they were all the same person right? i though it was really good aswell, but i kept making the mistake of comparing it to the first movie rather than to the book. I haven't read the book, but i assume most of the things that i noticed were missing or different, were just things that the original director put in that wasn't in the book. Like the little flute thing to call the oompas. the psycho tunnel bit wasn't as crazy as it could have been, and just some things that were in a slighty different order, like mike going in the elevator.

Crash

I love movies with all these characters and they don't all interconnect with each other. This movie kicked my ass. I have a different opinion on racisim now. And I loved it you think that one guy is gonna be the good guy for the movie and he'll lead you through but then it changes! It was a total surprise. And when that little girl was almost shot, I cried. But I hope it's nominated for an Oscar. It was great.

It was okay, but no where as scary, amusing, or funny as "The Exorcist".

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

The last film I saw in the theatres was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The movie was brilliant. I am huge fans of both Johnny Depp and Tim Burton...they were both amazing.I LOVED it! I was seriously giggling like a schoolgirl through most of it. Johnny Depp did such a fantastic job as Willie Wonka.

I saw it last Sunday. It's a very enjoyable movie; I never saw the original version so I can't compare the two. I was surrounded by many people on both ends, I think I got the best row of seat, and as I was the first to get in I sat in the middle by myself, then after others came in all sat along the seats either on my right hand side or on my left hand side until they were all taken. Yet in other rows there is hardly anybody! My husband wanted to watch another movie so he is upstairs inside another cinema room. When the movie was finished nobody wanted to move so I had to notify them that I needed to get out.  I rushed to the toilet and then I went to meet with my husband. Unfortunately, he didnít enjoy his movie.

Okay, a double-header here.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail[/i]
First time I had ever seen it the whole way through. Great movie. Very funny. "What are you going to do, bleed on me?" is one of the greatest lines ever. The at least 10 minute black backround with music ending was very funny.

Pretty good movie. It wasn't as good as I expected, but still good. Funny moments, and I thought it was funny that in about the first 20 minutes of the movie Earth gets blown up. It gets...

He must have been tricked into watching a movie with Julia Roberts in it. I know how embarassing that can be.  frown

The Brothers Grimm

This Terry Gilliam (of Monty Python fame) film was interesting for the most part.  It tells the fictitious story of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm (Heath Ledger and Matt Damon respectively), two conmen in Napoleonic French-controlled Germany.  Their racket is to convince a town simpletons that something wicked that way is and to "vanquish" it much like William Aetherton's character asserted the Ghostbusters did.  Anyway, they are forced by the benevolent, French governor (played by Jonathon Pryce) to rid another town of the conmen who are playing the local simpletons for fools.  Of course, it's not conmen but an actual supernatural entity.  Some things happen, there are a few women involved along the way (Lena Headey and the much hotter Monica Bellucci), fairy tales are referenced, and the movie ends.

It was a visually entertaining movie.  The forest scenes had a definate Old Worldliness to them.  Despite the fact that the film was rife with ravens, there were a few CGI characters involved that were used to good effect.  The "gingerbread man" would have been even better if it had better writing.

The best part of the movie (for me) was Peter Stormare as Cavaldi, Pryce's bumbling, Italian henchman.  Italian is not an accent I frequently associate with Stormare's characters (usually Russian-ish), so his voice itself is humorous.  Beyond that, Cavaldi goes into a panic mode after his first encounter with the wickedness that lasts throughout the film and is most entertaining.

I was guilted into seeing this film by my sister, her boyfriend, and her roomate, and I wasn't particularly interested in seeing it to begin with, but it turns out it wasn't a huge waste of time.

4/8 stars.

Metropolis

Just wow... This is the first full length silent movie I've seen. Fritz Lang is a genius, his vision was grand. The special effects for 1926 were amazing. The acting was over the top at points, but what can be expected for a silent?  tongue
  The original film was 3 1/4 hours long, but due to time only 2 1/2 hours remain today, so it was a bit distracting when it switched from live action to a text which tries to fill in the missing parts of the movie....
   All in all, I enjoyed it immensley, I'm not good at reviewing movies and such, but 2 words, See it!  smile

"Walace and Gromet, Curse of the Ware-Rabbit."

This was just a classic movie. I can't really say how much I enjoied is it was that great.
The Story just keeped bobing along at a good pace and never fell. The characters where great too, gotta love those pompish english accents.

Just wonderfull, so glad they made this movie.

Go see it, go see it now!
