Pirates 2

I went to see it yesterday and I thought it was ok but not as good as the first one. Those sea pirates gave me the creeps. You can tell that there going to be the 3rd movie after you watched it from the very end.

Miami Vice

Micheal Mann is awesome, not like that stupid Micheal Bay, I hate him so much!

Anyway, I never saw an episode of the series, but that didn't really matter, I don't think they had USB keys and brand new BMWs in Miami back then, so it's set in the present.
This was similar to Heat, which was awesome, in camera style and visuals and everything, so this was awesome too. The cast were great (except Colin Farrell a few times who just seemed mopey), Foxx was great, and that dude who played Caesar in the Rome TV show.

And the ending was wide open for a sequel, which I'd like to see. There was less action scenes as the trailer suggests, but like Heat, the best is saved to last with a great gun battle.  big grin

Dungeons & Dragons 2: Wrath of the Dragon God

Well, it had about the same quality of writing, acting, and production values as an actual game of D&D.  Better than most Sci-Fi Originals, and much better than the first one at least.

"Good times."

D+ on a standard scale, B- for a made-for-TV.

Owen Wilson has a great voice, Mater and Mack I liked too.
I didn't see this in full quality like Mr. fancy pants THJ, but it still looked great.
Story was decent and had some funny moments, like some of the Car world gags were great.

Vrooooom.

Jack Frost 2

But Jack, if you wanted revenge, why don't you just GO STRAIGHT AFTER HIM instead of fartarsing around with flamboyant gaysian photographers?!

I also object to killing him with bananas! At their price right now it would have been easier to just roll over and die than pay back the money for all those bananas they smooshed.   mad

Still, you did good, Jack.  smile

I just watched Brick today, and thought it was great. It's one of the first movies I've seen and liked in a long time. It's a noir set in a California high school. A girl gets murdered and her ex-boyfriend is trying to figure out what happened.  http://brickmovie.net/

Huo Yuan Jia (Fearless)

Jet Li in his last period Wu Shu/Wu Xia film he said he'd do (so I hear).
About a fighter who follows his fathers footsteps into Wu Shu fighting, he fights his way to number 1 in his city but then a trajedy befalls him and he goes away for a few years.
But then he returns again to fight for his country which has been losing face to the West.

Not as pretty, as big a scale or as dramatic as Ying Xiong (Hero), but the fights are great and Li acts more in this one than as Nameless.

Good stuff.

Since I have been able to see quite a few films recently I shall just give them short revies

Hero

Ohh my my. So very pretty. possibley the most stunning film I have see so far. Well worth a watch.

A

forty Year old vrigin

I found this film amusing enough but I sometimes felt that Carell as not stong enough to carry the whole movie and the supporting cast did not to help to much.

C

The Green Mile

Ok one long film but I did enjoy it and certainly worth a look see.

B

Kagemusha

Considered by many to be Kurosawa's most epic film and I would probably agree. If you can stand nearly three hours in subtitles then it is wotrht watching.

Helped by George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola to finish the film as it had gone over budget and hey convinced Fox to finace for the international rights.

Speaking of Kurosawas films, I swear I saw Kikuchiyo's (funny guy from Seven Samurai) twin on a bus in Thailand.

Nobody else knew who I was talking about though.  hmpf

YELLING LOUDLY DOES NOT ALWAYS = FUNNY

The M0le marking of C was accurate and generous, and even John Goodman has come to accept it. Why can't you?   frown

Pirates of the Carribbean 2

Not much to be said that hasn't already been said!
 
1. Best bit: When they're climbing on the Black Pearl, spot Jack in the distance, sigh in relief, and then the 100 million cannibals appear right behind him! Oh no run Jack or they'll get you!

2. Alright Norrington, what do you bloody think you're playing at? In the first one you looked like Hugh Laurie and now you look like Rasputin!

 



3. Voodoo lady: I really liked how you went to all the trouble of wearing that revealing dress when you sabotage it by letting all of those seaweed pubes grow in your teeth.

4. I think the Kraken was actually just a really big starfish. Poor little guy was  hungry. And as for you, Davy Jones, why did you tell Jack he needed to trade 100 people in for himself? What would you do with 100 people? You don't need 100 more crewmen. You were just being plain greedy, Davy Jones.

5. That sword chucking act with Elizabeth and the two mini-pirates was great, but I felt a bit sorry for that army of trained mutant immortal fish-pirates who couldn't even take three people (with only two swords between them). You guys just weren't trying, were you?   no no

You, Me and Dupree

It was your finest hour, Owen Wilson. I'm secretly proud to admit I screamed when I thought the statue bit off the hand in that Audrey Hepburn film Dupree was watching.

I thought it was a fun movie, and without Margaret and David here to pick it apart mercilessly with their viciously cruel vulture beaks, we can...

That rating better be accurate!

Dead Man's Shoes

Wow, what a film.  Rent this immediately.  One of the best British films of the last decade.  Amazing performance by the fantastic Paddy Considine, surely Britains answer to DeNiro.

The plot?  Two brothers return to a small town.  While one brother was away in the Army, his younger, mentally challenged brother was brutalised at the hands of local hoodlums.  Now the elder brother has returned to wreak vengeance.

One by one, he vicitmises the hoodlums, firstly starting with tactics designed to unsettle them, then he starts picking them off, in the most brutal and unforgiving ways possible.

There's a twist in the end, but that's neither here nor there.  This is fantastic!

10/10

The Flintstones

Everything is made out of wobbly plastic, including John Goodman and his tie. I actually found the cartoon more believable, but I guess it had a nice story and the conversion into live action wasn't too painful.

It had to be intentional. There's just no way they can try and make a serious film with that title. There were lots of tips of the cap to other 'serious' films in the same vein (Anaconda anyone?). I haven't laughed so hard for such a long time.

Loved it  big grin - 9/10

SNAKES ON A PLANE

The title promised snakes on a plane. And it sure as fucked delivered. Lots of snakes. On a plane. And that's... pretty much it. However, I do love this new trend of giving movies titles that tell the viewer EXACTLY what to expect in the film. If only this craze started last decade... then maybe Speed 2 would have been called "Unwatchable Piece of Shit."

Everything up to the snakes being unleashed on the plane is pretty boring, then that's followed by about 15 minutes of snakes relentlessly attacking people before anything else really happens... and it's easily the funniest part of the movie, too. Got kinda dull after that, but still a few funny moments. And Samuel L. Jackson's greatest line of all time!

SCORE: 8/10

God-awful movie, but great entertainment value. For it to have been truly classic, they either needed to take it more or less seriously. Still, go see it for the sex scene. And the plane. AND THE MOTHERFUCKIN' SNAKES!!!  big grin

Severance

Awesome movie. Not much intelligence required, but there's plenty to suit all. Gore. Hilarity. Tim McInnerney standing on a landmine.

There's more than a few moments which are genuine edge-of-the-seat suspense builders, and you'll be pretty damn creeped out by at least one moment about a thrid of the way through.

There's also a gag roughly every five minutes for the first half, and even the violence at the end is amazingly funny. Ever seen a man get a stick jammed up his pigoo? Well, replace "stick" with "knife", and that is exactly what happens!

You'll love this film if you liked Shaun of the Dead, Dog Soldiers, Scream, Scary Movie, and/or the recently remade Slither.

You'll hate it if you're an uptight oversensitive idiot.

Rating: A+
