Quote from Mr B:
"The best parts of this film were the parts that were unintentionally funny such as: Peter walking down the street snapping his fingers."

For some reason, I just imagine him doing that to the Stayin' Alive bythe Beegees. I have no idea why  hmpf

They probably would have used the track for the movie but the budget was too high after they bought all of Maguire and Grace's hair products.

All in all I though the film was ok but certainly not great. The Sandman looked awesome but did not seem overly menacing, The new Goblin was actually quite good but under used. Venom.......is awesome..in the comics but this version just seemed lacking (did not even refer to himself as "we" ). I would agree with many that say that these three did not add up to one Doc Ock.

c

Now maybe I was not paying attention in the eairly scenes with him in, but when Doc Conner was talker to Peter over the phone it kinda looked like he was missing an arm. Might have just been they way it was shot but if it was true then it could mean they may be planning on using the Lizard at some point.

Yes, Connors is missing his right arm, like in the comics. He didn't have it in the second film also. There's rumors that The Lizard will be used in the fourth film. Hopefully they won't ruin him like Venom.

Spidemo-Man 3

About halfway through, I found myself asking, "What happened to my Spider-man movie?  I was watching a Spider-man movie, where did it go?"  There were also about 50 pelvic thrusts too many.  A little bit later I was thisclose to start singing "crawling in my skin" at the top of my lungs.

All in all, it was entertaining, but it was not *good*.

Fun rating: 4 emo pelvic thrusts out of 5.
Quality rating: 2 stars visible from Manhattan out of 5.

I know I'm late with this but my favourite line in this movie that had me nearly rolling in the aisle was....

I want to go see that again just so I can do that. And so I can see Bruce Campbell's awesomeness. Those would be the only two reasons I'd go and see that again in theatres.

Haha, awfully good, it's pretty damn similar to Snakes On A Plane, but it hasn't got Sam Jackson, it's got dumb zombies and gunfights and explosions.
There are some funny bits, and the zombies look cool, but the acting and plot is pretty bad.

OMG!!! We must've been in the same cinema! I said that! Mind you, you must've been sitting next to me, cause i said it quietly so only my girlfriend heard.

Spider Folk the third
LAaaaame.

I enjoyed it a bit, but there were way to many, "omg i can't believe they just did that" moments. To you american's that "Land-on-a-truck-with-the-america-flag-flapping-behind-me" bit might have been patriotic, but to me LAAAAAAME! And Stan Lee's "Cameo" in this one. LAAAAAAME! (I wish i could use Nix's jumbo writing.)

Although i do think peter parker was the coolest and best evAr when he was emo. Awesome dancing, loves cookies, and he hits MJ!!! that was so cool! <3 violence against women? Australia may so no, but spidey says YES!

God Bless those americans! Helping out by repopulating Ingerland. But goddamn those kids! It's all your fault! It was a great film, just a shame you can't get attached to any of the characters. Carpet bombing was cool, as was all the snipers. Why did the dad seem to have a personal vendetta against his family? And how does hiding round a corner stop you from getting firebombed?

Now i know where Michael went from Lost!!! WAAALT!!


Heh, love the fast running zombies.

I'm bored.  So I'll review a very old movie that I saw recently.  A movie directed by Akira Kurosawa in 1954 known by its English title as The Seven Samurai.  It's a long black & white picture depicting Japenese samurai gathering together to help a village town from bandits... set probably in the 16th or 17th century.  The movie was subtitled, and there were no crazy special effects , or super intense unbelievable fight scenes.  The movie has charm though, it's #10 right now on imdb's top 250.  Everything is realistic, down to the you-get-hit-by-a-sword-full-swing-and-even-though-you're-not-chopped-in-half-you're-probably -dead-anyways rule.  It does some really good character development and the plot unfolds itself at a moderate pace; I didn't even notice I was watching a movie for like 3 hours.  I'd suggest the movie to anyone who likes samurai or the old ways of honor; very good humble movie in my opinion.  big grin

Le Dîner de Cons
"The Dinner Game"


It's a French film that I watched in (get this) French class. It's really funny. The humor is very good; it's so good that I laughed at the motions and tone. We had subtitles, yet it was still very good.

It gets the Weiner Seal of Approval™ and a A-. Yes, it was better than Spider-man 3.

Hot Fuzz
A+

So i finally went and saw this movie last night. And it did not disappoint at all. Started off a bit slow, not any action till the last half of the movie, but lots of great comedy bits in it. It was as much an Action film, as it was a Comedy. Old ladies getting kicked in the face, Priests getting killed with shotguns, church towers falling on peoples heads, and every thing else you could hope for. It was a very gory movie ever.
So Hot Fuzz(A million times better than Shawn of the Dead) goes down in history as the first Comedy/action/gore/suspense/mystery/every other genre you can think of.
Go see it.
The only thing that could have made it better is: Boobs.

Pirates etc. At World's End

Acceptable. Still drags a bit, and is highly convoluted at times, but about as good a finale as you could hope for. And it didn't end in quite the way I expected, which is pleasent. Though I'm sure some people will be upset at the fates of various characters. Nuts to them.

Jack's still pretty funny, in case anyone's wondering whether the joke's gotten old, yet.

Barbossa is such a pirate.

I just came back from Pirates as well.  I might have missed the first few minutes if there was a cold opening, because due to circumstances beyond my control, I walked into the theater just as the title came on screen.

*throws broken alarm clock out the window*

Anyway, I agree with SJM about the dragging, but I thought it picked up a bit (a lot) in the second half of the movie.  I loved the ending; it didn't catch me off guard exactly, but by that point I had no idea how they were going to conclude everything until they actually concluded everything.  I was satisfied with the movie as a whole: it was fun and enjoyable, and I'd probably go see it again just to catch everything that I missed this time around.


I think the only thing that really bothered me about the ending is that they (predictably) left it open for another sequel.  I'd like to think of it as leaving the potential for certain characters' future adventures out there, but I suspect they had movie #4 in mind.

My local 16-screen theater has only 6 fricking diferent movies playing, so they can show as many screenings as possible of Spider-Man 3, Shrek and Pirates. Weak! I have no desire to see any of those. Stupid summer. Or almost summer. Whatever.

Pirates Of The Caribbean 3

I saw this film on Friday and I thought it was really good. lots of action and adventure. Also lots of comedy from Johhy Depp and he is really hot. The little monkey is cute too.

The best part of the movie is:

Having seen Pirates 2 and been disappointed, I was pleasantly surprised by Pirates 3.

Rush and Depp are awesome. The piratingest pirates ever. Depp's drunken idiotic pirate is funny two sequels in, and Rush's evil, greedy, scheming pirate is like the Inner Captain in all of us - the person we all wish we were (or possibly just me).

Keira Knightly has no redeeming qualities beyond her minxy little body, which I would like to do depraved things to - she lets the film down spectacularly because she just can't pull off "feisty heroine" quite as well as "enraged yet helpless token female".

Ol' tentacle face has a few spectacular moments, and one or two (one orr two, maybe?) spectacularly bad ones as well. Monsters don't have feelings, damnit!

Throughout the film, I was wanting Jack to succeed. Willing him to succeed. It seemed to be the only way. Of course, the way it turned out was just as fitting.

If there's a fourth, I'll watch it. I'm not sure that it'll be any good if they decide to leave Rush and Depp out of it though.

Funny TNUK considering I also just got back from watching it. I'm not sure if I was disappointed or happy. Cause there were highs and lows about the film that throw me off.

What I really didn't get:

Jack Sparrow was awesome as always. My favorite bit:
[On the discussion about how uncreative Pirates are when it comes to naming things.]

Jack: I once knew a man who had lost his arm and two legs as well as one eye.

Gibbs: And what did you call him?

Jack: I called him...Larry.

Also for those going to see it, stay for after the credits for a look into the future. I makes sense once you watch it. And it gives you hope for reasons explained in the movie. If there's a 4th I'll see it.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

First, may I say "wow"? ... Okay, WOW!

After watching Emo-man 3, I wasn't expecting too much greatness from this film. I was wrong. This film exceeded my expectations. It had the perfect blend of action, adventure, fantasy, and comedy.

I must, though, that, towards the middle of the film, I was a little confused by all the alliances and backstabbing.

But, otherwise, this was an excellent film. I would pay for another ticket to sit through all 3 hours of it again... unlike Cutter-man 3.


So, for my grade, I give it...
A
Go see it... now... seriously, stop reading this and go and see it...

Jack seems obsessed with imortality, there's a deleted scene in the first movie where he is tempted to remain cursed by the Aztec gold and thus never die, so I think the idea of Jack Sparrow trying to become immortal would be a good stepping stone to continue the series. After the original POTC was completed, the writers mentioned that they still have two stories left to tell about Jack Sparrow. Dead Man's Chest and At World's End realy only make up one story, so I'm guessing there'll probably be another Pirates movie.

I would LOVE to see a movie focusing on some sort of Barbossa vs. Sparrow plot. Those two remind me of Scrooge McDuck and Flintheart Gloomgold battling it out over ancient treasures.

Anyway, At World's End was a lot of fun. Better than DMC, not as good as the first. I still can't believe Davey Jones is CGI, he looks so organic when he's interacting with the other characters. It's quite a feat.  Solid A- for overall entertainment value. 

Hot Fuzz is still the best movie so far this year. God damn, that was a great movie.

I must agree with the CGI Davy Jones. It such good CGI that I thought it was prosthetic make-up. ILM gets an A++, but that's degraded to an A+ because of Jar Jar Binks.

So here goes my movie review log for 2007 thus far...
Pirates 3- A
Meet the Robinsons- B+
Spider-man 3- B

Is it bad that I thought that Meet the Robinsons was better than Spider-man 3?

Paprika

Oh, Satoshi Kon.  Why won't you leave my brain alone?  Paprika, the free-spirited and adorable dream-jumping detective is the Alter-Ego of psychological researcher Atsuko.  A member of her team, incredibly obese and child-like research partner, Tokita has developed a major breakthrough: the DC mini, a device that makes dream-diving possible.

Suddenly, members of the research team begin blabbering about impossible visions.  Their dreams have crossed into their waking states, and someone is responsible for this dream-terrorism.  In order to save their research and their own sanity, Atsuko, and her team join with Paprika and a hard-nosed cop to hunt down the perpetrator.

time for the Satoshi Kon anti-reality meter:

0-----1-----2-----3-----4-----5-----6-----7-----8-----9-----10
WTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWT FWTF Perfect Blue

WTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTF Millenium Actress

WTFWTFWTF Tokyo Godfathers

WTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWT FWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFW TFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTFWTF Paprika

Yes, with this film Satoshi Kon outdid himself.  Dreams and reality are boundlessly merged in a brilliant film.  Visuals are every bit as imaginative as Miyasaki's "Spirited Away" But the film carries a much deeper resonance about human nature, desire dreams and reality.  This film is not for the un-analytical.  Bizarre, beautiful and a great time.
