WHEN REMAKES ATTACK

Project A-ko
Goofy as all hell animated action movie about a girl with superhuman strenght, who's attempts to get to school on time are being thwarted by a girl with superhuman intelligence.  Features good over-the-top acting, awsome action sequences and is funny.  It's a regular watch for me.  Breakthrough film that took a tiny idea and expanded it to a galactic scale.

A+

Xtracurricular
Goofy as hell live action movie about a girl with slightly above-human strength who's attempts to get a boyfriend are thwarted by a girl with slightly above-human intelligence.  Features Sub-Saved by the Bell acting, parmesan cheezy action sequences and un-funny wackyness.  You know that scene in A clockwork orange whan Alex is chaind to a chair and his eyes are forced open towards the movie screen?  Well, That's just about what I had to do to watch it all.

F

If there was one anime movie I would want re-made live-action in America, it would be Project A-ko, but the slad-shod Xtracurricular is so bad that I should be more carful about what I wished for.  When they re-made Kurosawa in the states, they got The Magnificant Seven and A fistfull of dollars.  Why can't such mercy be shown to Yuji Moriama?

Little Shop of Horrors (1986)
See, this is why great big monster sized puppets are always better than computer generated everythings!  big grin

Some nice catchy songs ('Feed Me', 'Big Green Mother From Outer Space', the title theme, 'Somewhere Green', and Steve Martin's one) made this a lot of fun. Oh man, by the end Audrey II had really GROWN on me. AND UH HUH YEAH BOY THAT PUN WAS WORTH IT.

Biggest shock for me was when Audrey II turned out to be a man, I mean, come on, he even called himself Audrey and had bright red lipstick on, of course the rumours would start flying left and right!

Sexually confused botanics aside, I really liked Audrey II. Probably the best animatronic puppet I've ever seen, funny little mannerisms and his James Earl Jones voice, he's my all time favourite "villain" now.  big grin

Coupla songs:

Feed Me!
"Wouldja like a Cadillac car? Or a guest shot on Jack Parr? How about a date with Hedy LaMarr?" Audrey II, you cocky son of a bitch, the poor woman would have been in her 70's.

Oh man, I watched The Wizard earlier tonight; I had forgotten that movie existed, hadn't seen it since me and my friends saw it in the theatre back in '89. It's so awful, I loved every second of cheese.

Funniest moment (intentional):
"Aaaah! He touched my breast!!"

funniest moment (unintentional):
"I love the Power Glove. It's so bad."

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
 laff
Crude and cringeworthy humour, politically incorrect and totally hilarious.
The joke is on you, crazy people of US and A!

Beat that, Jackass 2, your tired silly antics will seem, well, just plain old silly compared to Sacha Baron Cohens Super Silly Dynamo!

Borat

How do I even begin to describe this movie?  Grotesque, disturbing, and flat-out hilarous to start.  I admit that I wasn't following Cohen's work until I first heard about this movie several months ago, but once I started watching his act, I became an instant fan.  For those who know what to expect, this movie will not disappoint.

Solid A from me.

Children of Men

Wow, i was very impressed with this. I'm pretty sure this is what the world would be like in 30 years, if we had the whole no-babys-everywhere-but-england-gone-to-shit thingy happening. In that i mean to say it seemed pretty realistic, the technology wasn't to far fetched and in most cases very subtle.

i LOVED the 20minute one shot from when Ki gets taken to when clive catches up with her again inside the building.

Bit of an abrupt ending, but oh well.

The CGI birthing scene was interesting...

Lemme see what movies I've watched recently...

Pirates of the Caribbean 2

I liked it more than the first one... But I wasn't particularily fond of the first one...

B


Underworld (the first one)

I watched this at a friends house... he was excited because he hadn't seen it yet. This is easily the worst movie I had ever seen... It was like watching someone play a video game for 2 hours, except less exciting. Out of a million, I would give this movie a zero.

Z-- ...That's right... it's 20 letters worse than F.


X-men The Last Stand

Having watched it immediately after Underworld, it was a relief. Still kinda lame though, since I've never really been an X-men fan...

C+


Borat: Cultural Learnings of America etc etc

Being a fan of Da Ali G Show, I enjoyed this movie, though there were some parts where I wished I could poor some gasoline onto my eyes and light them on fire... For the most part though, it was high-larious.

Farce Of The Penguins

Samuel L. Jacksons narration saves it, mostly, but most of the jokes still fall flat as those damn penguins when they belly surf.
There's not a lot you can do with a voiceover on penguins making sex and poop jokes.

As I recall, it was around a B as an action movie (most of the stupid parts were at least easy to mock) and around a D+ as an X-men adaptation.  This is based off of well-churned memories, and probably differs from my original score.

Saw Batman Begins the other day for the first time and was mightily impressed. Story was very good and believable. Action was very good. Acting was very good, Christian Bale was very good - you couldn't go five minutes without seeing a new character and going "OH MY GOD! IT'S THAT GUY OUT THAT FILM!!!" But I used that to summarise the feeling. Morgan Freeman, Tom Wilkinson, Liam Neeson, Michael Caine, Rutger Hauer, Gary Oldman, Ken Wantanabe and Linus Roache can hardly be described as "...that guy"
But just as I had settled down, just towards the end... OHMYGOD! IT'S SCOTT TRACEY OF THUNDERBIRDS!!!

Hehe  big grin

Definite A

Saw a bit of Serenity last night - but not the very beginning and not the end either so I want to see more of it. I liked what I saw though. Didn't see any of the space action, so I don't know what to think about the claims I've seen that it blows the Battle of Coruscant out of the w...cosmos...

And finally, I also got to saw Team America: World Police the other night too. Really enjoyed it, but unfortunately I felt it was a film of two halves. The first half was hilarious and top-notch, but the second half when it starts dealing with FAG and whatever starts to fall down slighlty - I just find the humour a bit more gutter line, though it does have its moments.

On the whole, B-

Man on the Moon

I win in the good films contest. This film was excellent. It'd get an A+ if Courtney Love wasn't in it. I wish Kaufman was alive today, or I wish Kaufman would come out of hiding today.

I saw The Butterfly Effect for the first time a couple of hours ago. Honestly? Well, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was relieving and surprising to see how fun it was after all the whiney bitch rants about it from elitist wanks. Top marks, guys. Really. A few things, though: The CGI-no-arm thing was sketchy and annoying. Ashton tried his best, did well, but was ultimately still a little too out-of-character and just didn't seem to emote - his younger-version character counterparts were brilliant, though. And finally, I personally think it could have went a little deeper down the rabbit's hole - dug a little scar, broke some bones, rattled a few birdcages ... The material and story was there, but it just needed to pushed out of the shadows and onto the camera's focus. Regardless, they're just little quips on an otherwise fine and enjoyable film. B+

Let's Go To Prison

Disappointing when you think about how many talented comedian type people were involved with this movie. Truthfully, the prison rape gags made me roll my eyes--quite a feat, considering how much I love me some prison rape.

On the other hand, Gob was great, and there WERE some funny jokes. It was entertaining the whole way through--I just wish it were funnier. I'll give it a C+.

Casino Royale (2006)
Hmmm, Daniel Craig is a good Bond, but he felt out of place in this movie, sort of like he snuck in to a Jason Bourne movie instead...
But maybe that was the point, all this new gritty yadda yadda business is fine, but I really miss Desmond Llewelyn at this stage, and he didn't even have John Cleese to fill in for him in this one. Not a cool missile pen gadget in sight in this one.   frown

That said, it's a great action espionage thriller, with a great torture scene, some great dirty fights and good puns etc. And the poker game bits were good, aside from the friggin' narrator frogman.
Also, Eva Greens bewbs!   big grin

An Inconvenient Truth

Had more to do with Al Gore than global warming. Mostly boring and had lots of close ups of Al Gore's face. They talked about and Al's bull and a Al's 6 year old son that had nothing to do with global Warming. So bad it was funny.

Flushed Away

A decent movie. There was definitly a funny moment. Crotch-hitting action never ceases to hit my funny side. It just kept going!!!! Lots of songs that are oldies and the slugs are always singing them, which made it funny. It was a good movie, but with a somewhat predicatable ending, but what movie doesn't now days?

Donnie Darko

Zoidy has a point, movies do have predictable endings. And even though I saw this one coming, doesn't mean I wasn't fascinated and humored and a little confused.

Children Of Men
Wow, awesome film, I love the dystopian look, some great crappy looking scenes, give the set guy the Oscar!
The plot was simple enough, nice and easy to follow.
Acting was good too, Clive Owen should totally be Gordon Freeman if there's ever a HL2 movie, which this reminded me of.
The last 25 mins were fantastically shot with the shaky cam style.

For Your Consideration

I don't care what anybody says, FYC was a fantastically funny movie.  It is a must-see for any Christopher Guest fan, and for anybody who wants to see Principal SkinnerHarry Shearer dancing on a hip-hop dance show.  Catharine O'Hara outdoes her drunk scene in Waiting for Guffman.

I think a large proportion of the cast didn't speak English. They were just given syllables to pronounce. It's raised, albeit by only a few millimetres, by the fight scenes.

Breaking the Waves

More depressing than Disco Pigs. I kept mentally-singing "Take The Veil Cerpin Taxt" for some reason. Emily Watson hasn't done anything as good as this. Either has Lars Von Trier (The Idiots came so close, though). It's a really good, but depressing love story.. And the most accurate I've ever seen.
