Thinking? Since when is it thinking to have your opinion force fed to you in an action movie, and make you feel smarter for agreeing with it in the first place? A Clockwork Orange was a far better and cleverer exploration of a similar setting, that didn't lower itself to dumber members of the audience at all, whatever else it may have done.

Scary Movie 4

Plot: B

Humor: A++++++ to the billionth power

Oh and special thanks to my friend Madie for totally freaking out when that ghost boy pops in the car window. She gets an A too.

Not sure if I've said this before, but Rocky Horror Picture Show recieves an A in my book. Great movie, great acting, great singing, and so weird it's great!

Scary Movie 4

They used to beat jokes into the ground before, but god damn. I like bad horror movies so the movie was still somewhat enjoyable, but most of the running jokes have really run thin. In my opinion, they turned the series around with Scary Movie 3, but the stagnation that plauged Scary Movie 2 has reared its ugly head once again. The series is just out of steam. It was still enjoyable, but I don't think I'll ever have the urge to watch it again.

Pulp Fiction
It was actually the first time I've seen it. The local theatre had a special midnight showing for charity. Even though their print of the film has just about kicked the bucket(it's very scratchy and the last five minutes didn't have any sound), and I think it may be just a little overhyped(I like Resivour Dogs more), it still warrents a solid A.

The Burton films were more about the villians, these new ones are actually about Batman. I loved the original Burton movie too, but lets face it, it may as well have been called "Joker: The Movie." I'm sure many people felt the same way you do now when they abandoned the 60s TV series continuity for the one started in Tim Burton's Batman.

I saw she’s the man. I absolutely love that film. Amanda Bynes was really good (and a bit cute) as a boy. I would love to see it again and get the film when it comes out on DVD.

March of the Penguins
I liked it! The baby penguins sort of reminded me of vegemite sandwiches, which was adorable.  love

It was disappointing when a giant orca didn't just shoot up from under them and eat a whole family of penguins. Very poor directing, guys.  no no

Ice Age 2

Agree with Penus and Sprayshift, great movie! (clever eh?)

I have to disagree with you on best quote though! Points off!

Sid: Believe it or not, there are animals out there that would want to harm, or otherwise "KILL" us sloths!
Tiger: Really, and WHY would they want to do that?
Sid: Oh, jealousy, mostly.

Your film reviews are better than masturbation, M0le; You don't have to wait a few minutes for the punchline.

Eaten Alive: Tobe Hooper film. It's about a deranged motel-keeper killing whoever stays in his motel, either hacking them with a rake or feeding them to his crocodile. Not much else, really. It'd only appeal to horror-buffs or people who are really bored & want something to kill time - like me. C

About to see it, i hope.

Creep

Umm...


...

FUCKED UP.

Enjoyed it, had some cool things in it, never really entirely explained what happened, no closure, no real plot. Very bloody and disturbing. Enjoyed watching the special features where the lead actress explains her deep role and how complex her character is, saying what her motivations are, explaining the characters background/fears/family/friends etc etc etc, when really the character is about as deep as...something not very deep. Liked the ending.  6 severed heads out of 10.

Series 7

i'd waited a LONG time to see this, always wanted to rent it, but never could cause it was R18+ and was never in. Forgot about it for about 5 years, then got it the other night. Nothing like i expected, was thinking things more like Saw, but the way it was done was brilliant, you could put it on Prime time and people wouldn't be able to tell it was fake, it looks like it could be the next Mark Burnett (sp?) reality show. great ending, a bit disturbing in parts, but well worth the wait
9 old men who beat teenage girls to death out of 10

Primer
Didn't get to see the end, was falling asleep andd wanted to watch the whole thing whilst fully awake, i rekon it would go right over my head if i'd finished it in that state, hell it probably still will if i watch it in the most concentrated state ever. Its a time travel movie, but no the "i dropped my watch in the toaster and now and i can tame dinosaurs" kind of time travel, but the serious physics and science crap that confuses the shit out of you. It said it beat Garden State at Sundance, so i thought i'd give it a go. Its set to be a very good movie, hadn't got to the complications of the movie, but it seems promising. On a technical note, it seems the whole movie was redubbed, ie, voices and sounds recorded after all the filming, if anyone knows the story behind this, feel free to share.

Flight of the Navigator
It strikes me that if this movie were made by any company other than disney it would have been the coolest movie ever.  I know the plot is E.T. meets Back to the Future, but still some of the ideas that were come up with for this movie were really really cool.  Sadly most of this coolness was sapped by Disney trending the entire film to an 8-year olds learning curve.  Still, that's probably why I watched it a hundred times about twenty years ago.

Paul Rubens does a great job with the straight voice for the space ship before busting out into his Pee-wee herman voice.  While Sarah Jessica parker's role is laughably illogical (again...Disney) she still makes a moment or two on screen.  And the real cream of the crop are the groundbreaking CGI effects that took computer graphics out of Tron and into a real world.

I still like this movie.

7 out of 10

my friend and I had a talk about how the first movie focused more on the joker than on Batman. Everyone knows Jack got payed the most, and probalby had the most lines
but to me, after micheal keaton, there's never going to be another batman. it's like making another indiana jones without Harrison Ford

I defy you to have heard of this movie.

Good dark comedy, nice indy style without being as OMFG-it-won-an-award as Garden State, and of course, the Ex trips.

That's why he's going to be Indiana in the new movie, which I'm excited about.

The Benchwarmers
It was in the theme of Dodgeball and the Adam Sandler films. I liked it.

This is David Spade's first movie in a while. Great work with this one. Quite funny.

Jon Heder was in his now cliché role of the idiot and had the Napoleon Dynamite voice. I liked how he played the character, but it was kinda a type-cast in a sense.

Rob Schneider was not the "funny" guy in this movie, like Vince Vaughn was in Dodgeball.

Jon Lovitz was awesome. I loved everything about his character. The whole sense that he was a geek who grew up to buy all the geeky stuff he loved was cool. Number 7 was funny, and the Darth Vader gate was cool.

The guy who didn't like the sun, I don't fully remember his name in the movie or the actor, was good as well.

All and all, the movie was good. I'll get it for DVD when it comes out.

Except that,as Crapbag already noted, Harrison Ford is now about 60, and both George Lucas and Steven Spielberg have lost any talent they originally had.

I just saw the prologue bit on some DVD review show and it looked interesting, and it was, but it seemed a bit all over the place, I got the basic plot but some of the scenes were messy.
Also, I know it's been out for ages, but I still haven't seen every film ever made, so I'm still catching up on some stuff.

I also saw Constantine too, and that was about the same, nice CGI, interesting concept/adaption, but it didn't satisfy my movie monster, that I call "Eduardo"!  big grin

Inside Man

Freaking awesome.  Superbly directed, cast (The Operative!  Tommy from Galaxy Quest!), acted, and written.  Twists and turns left me completely befuddled and I loved everu minute.  Satisfying ending that you really couldn't see coming.

Silent Hill

Worst part of the movie was the witch hunt people but the best part was most of them but one dies. Most of the script was the word "Sharon". They could have done more and the people were really plain.

The last 20 mins of the movie was boring. D-

Hoodwinked!
Aka The True Story of Red Riding Hood, told Shrek style.

Cute movie, the CGI is really simple, I wouldn't be surprised if it was done with off the shelf software, but it doesn't make the film any worse, why should CGI be getting better and more complicated?
Lots of cool voice acting, (Anne Hathaway as Red, Joe Swanson from Family Guy as The Wolf, Andy Dick as Boingo the Bunny and Xzibit as Chief Grizzly) some great lines and characters too Twitchy the hyper squirrel voiced by the director, and digitally speeded up, was the best.  big grin

As I said, told in a Shrek/Run Lola Run style, standard movie references and a few nice musical numbers thrown in for good measure.

Pretty damn sweet. Imagine Wes Anderson, minus the arty bullshit, spontanious actions that have no motivation, add considerably more insight into human nature and you have this movie. Touching and sad, but still quite a lot of humor.

Akeela and the Bee
my girlfriend wanted to see it, even though I hadn't heard anthing about it, I saw it with her today.  I enjoyed it.  It's about spelling so naturally I would've thought I would have no interest what so ever (I can't spell, I suck at english, I'm a math/science/art guy).  They did a really good job though and managed to keep me interested.  Slightly corny at times but still, very insightful.

Watched Adaptation today. hated it.  It's one of those movies that's bad and you're like, aw man, how are they gonna conclude this? and then they don't and it leaves you pissed off that you wasted all that time watching a movie like that. A few interesting ideas, some good acting (as well as some bad) but not enough to make it even worth watching.  It won all sorts of awards... because it's different, and overrated.  It's a lame story.  I recommend not wasting your time like I did.
