Spoilers Ahead:

X-Men: The Last Stand

...was a big disappointment. Almost half as much as the Da Vinci Code. Anything big happening throughout the movie is fake. Plus the Last Stand has the same ending of X2.
But still the last scene took me for a ride. It was also pretty cheesy. Will all the things said, I give X-Men: The Last Scene a...

C+

I just read today X3 is the last one because they wanted it as a trilogy.  But i suppose they could more just have a different story for another trilogy

Characters being dead then coming back.....sounds more like the comics with each passing moment. See this link for example: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/218160

As for other movies. Well it seems there is already a Wolverine movie in the works...seems kinda redundant to me as he seemed to be the main star in the first two movies (I have yet to see the third)

Wu: Yeah, Wolvy gets most of the big scenes in 3 as well.  But can you blame them?

Also, he finally gets some action from Jean.  Sorta.

X-men 3 – The Last Stand

It was a really good movie and it had some surprises on the way. I like Jean turning evil and I love her red hair. I did not know that Kelsey Grammer was playing The Beast. He plays him very well. So if this the last ever ever X men movie? because many character get killed off.

I saw this film the other day, and as with the other two films, loved it.

Given the fact that the ending definately left room for another sequel ... they'll have to rethink that 'Last Stand' title.

I guess that is the problem with the text, it is some much harder to be clear with a sentence without the ability to use the subtle variances of the voice.

Perhaps I should have been clearer. What I meant was the movie has now adopted one of the more obserd attributes of the comics where even if a character dies they will be back eventually (with the exception of Thunderbird who to my knowledge remains dead, hell they have recently resurected Jason Todd in Batman and he had been dead for years).

I guess my point is that this type of resurection is bearable in comics because comics go on for years and change writers fairly regulaly. However a movie is fair shorter in it;s time frame and resurection can ruin the emotional poinacy of a death.

Well it seems lack of sleep does cause me to ramble on. So I will just leave by saying that the movies seem to be following the Ultimate X-men more than the Uncanny (well concerning the origin of some of the mutents powers, I do wonder if they mention James Howlett in the new movie)

When a Stranger Calls 06' (redux)

When I saw it in theaters the first time I was being kind of jerky saying "this is total bullshit". I rented it again to see if I was just being cocky. Turns out I really wasn't. I don't really hate it or like it anymore then I did.

The grade is still C+

The Family Stone

Not what I was really hoping for but I liked it.



It was emotional sure but it was Luke Wilson for God's sake. I figured out the ending though. Sarah Jessica Parker was kind of a pathetic butt until the end.

B- I only put spoilers in cause I've gotten in trouble before for not doing that.

I'm not gonna post a review of X-Men 3 because everything that I would say has already really been said. But, I will say the one thing that really struck me after watching it was the fact that all 3 x-men movies seem to be based around a specific mutant.

- X-Men - Magneto uses Rouge's powers to turn humans into mutants.
- X-Men 2 - Bad guy uses Xavier to kill all mutants.
- X-Men 3 - Humans use a mutant to create a cure for being a mutant.

If, they do another X-Men movie by chance. Do something different.

P.S. I'll give it a C.

Just watched The Fifth Element all the way through for the first time.

It's basically the perfect action/scifi movie, if you like cheesiness.  And I loves my cheesiness.

Next you'll say you never watched the Stargate movie or something...

Lies and slander! I watched that movie before SG-1 came out and made it cool.

Though to be honest, I prefer the partial nudity in Fifth Element over that in Stargate any day.

NP: gb2 Farscape.  Pretty sure they got pretty close at some point.

Besides, I was referring to the Stargate film, which didn't even have MacGuyver in it yet, let alone Aeryn.

Saw Cars tonight.  Amazing.  I remember when I first saw the trailer for it during the incredibles I was really wondering if pixar could manage to make a good movie out of it.  They didn't let me down.  the story itself was really solid, had a lot of funny moments, a good attention to detail.  it seemed to have more "hey look at our amazing renders" sequences than their other films but I can't blame them, the movie is beautiful.

I should mention that, as an aspiring animator, I'm pretty bias when it comes to CGI movies.  So I'll say that while I loved it and was in awe throughout the movie, comparatively The Incredibles was maybe a little more appealing overall.

X-Men 3
The number one thing I learned from this movie is that for someone who talks so much shit, Magneto is a show-off deep down. A man after my own heart.   smile

I had a good time watching it and I liked the new characters, basically. Echidna Boy was a bit out of place and was pretty full of himself, considering his "superpower" is the ability to push spikes out of his face and generally dick around the place. It ranks right up there with being able to detect fluoride in tap water.

I liked the Juggernaut, though. If Wolverine's getting a movie, then he deserves a trilogy or six. He didn't really have much to do with the plot like most of the other mutants but he livened it up a bit.

Good show!   big grin

I saw Cars last night. Man, Pixar really knows how to kick your ass visually. Great story line too, they really didn't give very much at all away in the previews. The main car is basically on his way to a race when he gets ejected from the truck he's riding in and ends up driving into some nowhere desert town. The 180 flip in character change by the end of that movie is great. Man, what am I wasting my time talking about it for? Go watch this shit. Five stars, for sure.

Noo Hin The Movie

It was in Thai with Engrish subtitles, about a clumsy Dennis The Menace type of Thai girl who moves from rural Thailand to Bangkok to work, she gets a job with a rich family as a maid and enters the families daughters (omfg hotttt thai supermodel wimmins  eek ) into a fashion show.
Then gay gangsters with plastic surgery kidnap everyone, but Noo Hin saves the day causing trouble along the way.

The End.

I want to go and see Over The Hedge tonight. Peace out.

Yeah, pretty film oooh. You big girls boob.

Anywhoo... trying to remember what films I saw... distracted by thought of boobs...

Oh yes! Slither
Heheh, gory fun, Mal was good as usual, scared my girlfriend good, mwahaha.

And Over The Hedge
Heheh again, not so gory fun this time, but it was good trying to put the voices to actors.
Love Ahmed Djalili as the Persian cat, and Steve Carell as Hammy, Nick Nolte as the bear and William Shatner as the possum, he had some great lines too (but Avril Lavigne sucks even when she talks).
Visually nice and some good gags, loved the ending.

They Live
Oh, where to begin? I've been meaning to see this movie for a while now, but have only now found it.

Good, solid satire with plenty of violence. Also, the cripple fight!

And then the end. "What's wrong, honey?"

Silent Hill
Meh, it was ok. Sometimes a bit creepy, and I assume all the camera angles were the same as in the game (but how about the plot, can anyone tell me if they were the same?)
Also, Sean Beans weird accent = lols

B- (but mostly for the cool effects)
