Fun with Dick and Jane

I liked it a lot. No loss of Jim Carrey humor. Oddly enough it didn't feel like a movie just a TV sitcom. I find that weird. But it was really good and I will appreciate it more when I understand economics more.

Wolf Creek Boriiiiiing! It took a full hour before they even met the serial killer, and he was rather tame.

Thanks for saving the wife-person and me $25+ (tickets, concessions, etc).  She likes horror movies, but only good ones.  She saw your review and told me to just go out and rent any of the 'Nightmare On Elm Street' movies instead of us going to see this movie tonight.


Okay you cunts, let's see what you can do now.

Saw was one of the few movies that could actually scare me. And it has Cary Elwes!

Well, he was probably the only actor they could find who was willing to saw his foot off. Give him a break.

The 40 Year-Old Virgin Unrated

I had to watch it with my mom who wasn't wild about letting me watch it anyway. I can see why. But it was funny and I'll appreciate it more when I'm in collage.

Scary? No, not really. Somewhat violent, slightly disturbing in it's way. The serial killer is like an Evil Mick Dundee, so whether you find him scary or not depends entirely on whether you have a deepseeded fear of Australian bumpkins.

I saw it a while ago, but I don't feel like doing a proper review, so here is a quarter-assed one: meh. Oh, and the spectacular idiocy of the protagonists really got on my nerves.

@ Venus or Nix:

The Hostel (maybe that's how it's spelled).  The latest Quinten Tarrentino movie.  Have either of you viewed it yet?

Incidentally, Hostel isn't technically Tarantino's.  It's written and directed by Eli Roth - Tarantino was an executive producer, according to imdb

Eli Roth, director of Cabin Fever, both that and Hostel are supposed to be good.

I am not sure of what to make of Hostel. I'm not really for the torture without a good reason plot but that's what I thought of Saw until someone told me the reasoning of it.

Fun With Dick and Jane
I never saw the 1977 version so lalalala I haven't got anything to complain about. First movie of the new year ( freaky or what?  eek ) and didn't disappoint. Lots of funny little bits with Jim Carrey and that Téa Leoni woman, so it gets a virtual dancing thumbs-up from me.

Fun with Dick and Jane
(aka: we were 30 minutes late for that Geisha movie)

The theater smelled like dead feet in the ball pit at a McDonalds. The movie was not as bad. I thought it was a cute, lighthearted romp that winked at corporate morality in the new economy. . . It probably wasn't as good as the Geisha movie would have been, though. I'm glad Tea Leoni is working again, because I think she's a likeable actress. Jim Carrey is really getting old, especially evident in the close-ups. His happy/drunk/upset dancing/antics/stupidness was kinda annoying and seemed added to the script just because it was a Jim Carrey movie. I assume someone like Nick Cage wouldn't be doing that kind of crap.

And what did Tarantino do for this movie?

Aside from allowing that his name would be placed on top of the adverts for that movie so that certain 'people' would be tempted to watch it just because its "whoa, a new Tarantino!" ...?  roll eyes

I think it's more like, "Ooh. Tarantino likes this movie enough to "present it." It must be cool."

It worked with "Hero"

Except that the import version was better.  Oh well, more people saw it this way, so I can geek out to a wider audience.

Plus it's not like films are famous or make lots of money just for being good.  I mean, Serenity for Christ's sake.  Hell, it even had a famous director, and still no one saw it.

Yes, but it reached its core audience, didn't it? All you guys blab about is how good it is. Is it realistic to expect it to be bigger than it was? *shrugs* I have no interest in seeing it. Make me want to see it. Go ahead. Now!

Hey, it was the best I could come up with on short notice.  Really, it's the acting and character humor that make the film great, and it's hard to convey those convincingly in text.

I'm comparing it to two categories of visual art:

Other science fiction.
Joss Whedon's other projects.

It's all relative.

Also, I confess.  I'm really bad at forming fully-fledged arguments.  I tend to start with a few emotionally asserted but unprovable premises, hope my audience buys into them, and then fast-talk my way into a believable conclusion.  Sadly, that's never worked on Jeremy.  Or you, for that matter.

I think that there quite a few out there that thought that he had directed Hero.

Walk the Line

Really good. Honestly I had no good idea of who Johny Cash was until I heard about the movie. Resse Witherspoon was great in that movie. I loved it. There was something that bothered me about the movie but now I forget. I was kind of mad that for about 20 minutes after the movie me and my sister had to stand outside in the cold waiting for my mom cause I had no cell phone and I couldn't find a working payphone.
