Yeah, I thought the same thing.

Just like Will apparently decided to steal the whole "oh, right, kill it with fire" idea from Viggo.  Seriously, what kind of smith would light a perfectly good sword on fire?

The kind that was being attacked by mutant fish-men at the time?  I doubt that he was worried about ruining the sword just then.

The thing should have been completely ruined (but apparently wasn't since I never saw him get another one.)  Stupid Hollywood.

Stuff like that doesn't bother me.  The movie was entertaining, and that's what really counts.

Pirates 2

The ending...still grrr. Strictly cause I was really into by that point and wasn't expecting it to cut off right there. Neither was the audience. I am so gonna see the 3rd one...right after I see Spider-Man tres. I thought it was freakin hilarious. Really good too. Can't decide if I liked it better than the 1st one or not cause it was anti-climatic. Also I only watched the first one like 2 weeks ago for the first time and I really enjoyed it. Davey Jones was not nice. Also I didn't expect the one commander guy (you know who) to come back cause I didn't like him. He was a pricky dick.

Ok time to bitch for a moment. Though some of it was said.


Pirates 1: A
Pirates 2: A-

Also as of last weekend,

Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Begins

For the first 2, Tim Burton. Need I say more? Clashing of the 80's and 90's absolutely! Brilliant? Yes. Best villian? Christopher Walken. Actually I don't know. All of them were great. Cillian Murphy was the prettiest, Catwoman was the bitchiest and most insane, Joker was crazy weird, Penguin...had penguins, that is just so cool. I can't decide which one I liked best though. Michael Keaton and Christopher Bale were both VERY good at playing BB and Wayne. Very sexy and suave and savvy (learned that from Pirates).

Batman: A
Batman Returns: A
Batman Begins: A


Can't even give them seperate grades. Cause they all were great in my book. Next year I would be reviewing Superman and all that but Spider-Man is coming out so...no.

I liked the CGI. Especially the slave people on the ship, like the guy that was part of the ship.

Captain Barbossa was more of a likable villian than Davy Jones, if that made any sense. I didn't like Jones as much as Barbossa.

Spider-Man 3 is set for release on May 4th. Pirates 3 is set for May 25th. That solves my conundrum of which one to go to first. If Pirates came out on May 4th, I'd see it first. Seriously. I'm a Spider-Man fan and all, but Pirates 3 seems that it will be better than Spider-Man 3 currently. I'll see both of them before Batman Begins 2, as, for me, BB2 sounds like an awful idea. The only think I liked about Batman Begins was Liam Neeson, Michael Caine, and Gary Oldman being in it. Other than that, I hated it. I liked Val Kilmer as Batman better than Christian Bale.

People don't seem to get my late-night sarcasm...I mean, he was fighting CGI abominations from the depths of the sea (which can breate air perfectly.)  I know when to suspend my disbelief.

I saw Pirates 2 and I thought it was good. I never saw the first one, so I wasn't expecting anything (I just needed to get out). I thought there were a lot funny parts, so I didn't go to sleep.


Overall I give it a B+, whatever that means. Keep in mind that some of my favorite movies are "Undercover Brother" and "Who Am I".

Pirates 2.

I'm going to change my grade to a B. After viewing the first one and thinking a bit more about the second one (my mind was clouded by other events), my judgement has changed.

B, 7/10 it is.

Alright, I finally got a chance to see Crash
This is the best drama I have seen in years.
I can see why it won best picture, and my only question is "Why didn't it win more Oscars?"

Comedy Central is showing King Ralph right now.

...

wow. I had forgotten this movie even existed. It's so awful it's almost good.

There was one good line at the begining, though...

"We've found an heir to the throne. [...] He has his strenghs and weaknesses."
"Oh?"
"He's an American."
...
"Well, quickly, man, what are his strengths?"

Ya that movie was too predictable.

I rented Pitch Black, so I'll review it before I forget.
Really good for a Sci-FI thriller. Nothing exceptional about it. I liked the story, but it was too much like Alien.

Very Bad Things

Late night movie, had the obligitory nude Asian stripper scene, numerous death scenes, and Christian Slater, which I always love.

Not so much can be said about the movie, premise seemed ok, then went haywire with too many stupid deaths and confusion on storylines.

Very bad movie.

I am, I am, I am Superman and I can do anything

Superman Returns

Nothing quite like some good old fashioned Super hero fun. I think Brondon Routh did a good job in the film as Superman but his bumbling Clark Kent was certainly his better performance.Was not too sure on Frank Langella's Perry White he did not seem to portray the energy I imagine Perry to have being an editor. Marsden's role as Richard White was ok but it mostly explained to me his very short role in X-men 3. Of course the star of the film was Spacey, his Lex Luthor was great and hopefully he will return in any future Superman films.

I did like the fact that this film takes place after Superman 2 (thankfully retconning the thrid and fouth films) rather than starting from scratch. Now if I read the Superman comics I may have got more of the references but it was at least nice to see reference to some of is iconic poses (ie the car over his head).

As for the boy

All in all I enjoyed it
9/10

next I must try to see some pirates.

Awww so Wu went to see Superman Returns too! Oh and about the Pirates, how about going to see it with me?

I went to see it on Wednesday and I thought it was really good. Kevin Spacey is always good playing the bad guy Lex Luthor.

I didn't like Superman Returns, but thats probably because I never liked Superman. I just can't releate to him, I mean he might as well be a God. I like Spiderman 2 because he was broke, getting behind in his school work, and having female trouble. Now thats something I can relate to.

I'm in the same boat as LayZ341, except my excuse was I went with my dad and brother.  I just considered it "family bonding time." :P

Without going into great detail (I saw the movie nearly a month ago), I'll say it was probably the best Superman movie I've seen, and that it beat my incredibly low expectations, but it's not something I want to see again anytime soon.  Superman's just too "superior" for me to find interesting.

Yeah my friends wanted to see the movie and I wanted to get out of the house. Haven't you ever gone to a movie you didn't want to see? Plus one of my friends "loves" Superman, so I had fun pointing out inconsistencies that support my "Superman is Wack" argument.

Gummo (1997)

I've had this on VHS for years. I've seen it quite a few times, and yet it still hits you right in the nads.

Watching Gummo is like watching a film-version of Godflesh's debut EP on the Swordfish label.

Gummo's plot is that of nothing, really. It's a story of a town where there is essentially no adults, and the kids run their own lives: There's cat killing, sex, alcohol, drugs, prostitution, homosexuality, tales of pedophilia/molestation, etc.

"Xenia, Ohio. Xenia, Ohio. A few of years ago, a tornado hit this place. It killed people left and right. Dogs died. Cats died. Houses were split open, and you could see necklaces hanging from branches of trees. Peoples legs and neck bones were sticking out. Oliver found a leg on his roof. I saw a girl fly through the sky and I looked up her skirt. The school was smashed, and some kids died. My neighbor was tore in half.. they never found his head. I always thought that was funny."

(Harmony Korine directed/wrote this. You might remember him as the writer of the film Kids. Or you may not.. whatever.)

Actor Jack Warden died recently so:

70-80's movie goofiness done right.  Warden does a great job in a double role.  Don't miss the commercial.

Superman Returns
-This was an excellent movie. I had no problems with it at all, as far as the plot and action went. However, as for Superman himself, I really don't know. He is just way too powerful, and has like no weaknesses whatsoever, except for one, which isn't very common. But that's just my opinion. I know for a fact that many people most likely do not see things my way.

P 2
Not as good as the first but better than most sequels. Some very nice and creative direction. Impressed that so many minor members of the cast returned. Glas Disney didn't skimp on the yukky visuals. Loved the ending, it brought a smile to my face...

Jay and Silent Bob Srike Back
Just goes to show that it's not possible for Kevin Smith to make a bad movie.
Laughed my ass off the entire time. But what I really liked is the special features on Disk2. There's an hour and a half of deleted scenes and people explaining them. It was originally NC-17, and  in the deleted scenes, you can tell why.

If you wonder why I give all the movies I review A's, that's because I dont take the time to review shitty movies.
