Fun With Dick And Jane

I really like this film and I thought it was really funny. Jim Carrey has still got his good looks at the age of 44  love

If you guys ever see a short film called "Ward 13" listed in the TV Guide (possibly as part of The Animation Show), watch it, it's the best 14 minute claymation short film ever.

Trailer on the website here!

Hard to believe it came out of Australia... nothing good has come out of Australia since...
Ummm...
Well, enjoy the film!

Deuce Bigalow: European Gigalow
I don't mean to excite anybody, but this is definitely movie-of-the-year for the last three years running, even before it was released. The penis jokes alone guarantee it a spot alongside Casablanca or Ernest Saves Christmas.

Anyway, the plot. Not to spoil the story for you, but in Amsterdam the local police chief is going around killing all the gigolos (Oh shit) and it's up to Deuce to save TJ from being falsely arrested and hopefully clear his name off the Chippendales client list.

So the big payoff for this film is the neverending penis jokes. Poor Rob Schneider missed out on the Golden Globes, but with the Oscars coming up I'm confident he'll be able to come up with a third sequel, Deuce Bigalow: Pro Bono.

The only thing this movie is missing is cripples to make fun of (another plus to that is that Rob Schneider would look well groomed in comparison)
A+

The Aristocrats I never could have thought a funny movie could be boring, this one was after 20 or 30 mins in. It was more gross than funny, then the grossness got boring and unfunny. So I want my 3 dollers back! It's a dam shame too with all the stars in it.

Avoid watching at all cost. F-

Corpse Bride

This movie was meh. Most of the story was kinda like a rip off of the ending of the movie Beetlejuice. It didn't feel that much like The Nightmare Before Christmas. The ending was kinda like up in the air. Still had a few funny parts. C+

I've officially seen all of Hoodwinked. I didn't sit in the theater and i didn't see it all in order, but i've seen it all. It's officially the worst movie CGI i've seen in my life. The characters are all 'meh'. Except the wolf. He was hysterical. Had all the best lines and was voiced by the same guy that did Kronk on Emperor's new groove.

Brock Samson? Joe from Family Guy? The live-action Tick? C'mon, he's like the only actor to break the Seinfeld-curse!

The actor is Patrick Warburton (had to look it up). He played Elanie's late-term boyfriend on "Seinfeld" for the last few seasons. The dumb mechanic guy.

2 movies I've seen from last year that I forgot to review.

Madagascar

It was great we are going to buy it eventually.

A

Jurassic Park & JP3

First one ws great. The scene with the T-rex rolling the jeep around with the kids still in it while Jeff Goldbloom and Sam Neill sit and gawk killed me. It was so damn funny.

JP3, not a bad movie but the CGI was obvious in some parts. And Tea Leoni's hair...THE HORRIBLE FUCKING HAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It burned my eyes!!!!! I could talk about character developement and crap like that but I can't get over that stupid bowl-style haircut.

That Firefly Movie
As a big Buffy fan and all around nerd, you'd think I'm the prime audience for this movie. I guess, since I never watched, or had any interest in the original TV show, I'm not the super primest audience. But if this movie was planning on reaching out even the slightest bit beyond it's core fan base, then you'd expect I would like it, right? Well it was pretty darn average. It wasn't exactly BAD, but it was, at times, one or more of the following: confusing, boring, clichéd, and unoriginal. The concept of a western in space doesn't really appeal to me and even the costumes seemed lazy and incongruent (one lady is in what looks like an ao dai, another man is in a white button down shirt and a tie, a third woman is dressed in what looks like a left-over "sexy alien" costume from Star Trek). As a costume-nerd I notice stuff like that and I'm sorry, but it pissed me off. I like the idea of the rage gas, but wasn't that the plot of 28 Days Later? But overall, it's not like I wanted to kill myself, so I give it a C+

Last Days

A fictional story that is partly based on the last days of Kurt Cobain. The main character Blake is a rock star whose fame has become to much for him and has become a bit of a recluse who does not know what to do with himself.

The film is a little odd to say the least. For the majority of the film we see Blake walking around his home gibbering to himself or falling asleep and just generally being odd. I assume the way it was directed was to give a feeling of how lost the character was and how little things no longer made him happy. There are a few bits with other characters to show how they percieve Blake and then theses scenes are reshown from Blakes perspective.

I might have understood this film more if I knew what transpired with the real life model for the character but never the less it was interesting.

Hmm I guess that is a little vague. It gets minues a couple points for having a screwy ending. But the action that I've been missing and craving for gets big grins.

VF, I'm going to do what I normally do and explain something to someone that they probably don't care about or even remember bringing up.

The mixed-up costumes in Serenity are a big part of Firefly's kitsch; human culture at that time's pretty much an incongruous blend of every modern civilization just sorta thrown together for fun.  That's how you get the Japanese commercials, Australian crimelords, ubiquitous Chinese swearing, space-cowboys vs. cyberpunk dictators, etc.  This extends to the costumes, which are mostly a mix of American and Chinese styles from the last 2 or 3 centuries, mostly to mix the cowboy look with the "classic" Asian aesthetic.

Does it make sense?  Not really.  But you're a Buffy fan, right?  Sometimes you just have to accept weirdness.

I don't fell like arguing these points, and really can't argue on clichéd.  I'm just going to say I like it for the same reason anyone seems to like Whedon: the characters and the witty banter.

Walk The Line

Mmm, Johnny Cash biopic, starring Joaquin Phoenix and (Greasy) Reese Witherspoon.  It's good.  The principle characters are pretty much flawless and the performances (including the singing, which they do) is damn good.

I was a bit disappointed that it kinda ended abruptly around 1968, however, that said, if it was to feature ALL of Johnny Cash's life then I'd've been sat there for five hours instead of two.

Excellent.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)

I loved this movie, Robert Downey Jnr can play cool and droll, like in Air America, and teamed up with Val Kilmer worked great, very funny movie.
Some nice narration, movie references and nipplage to satisfy me too:
Sexy detective thriller comedy, great stuff.  big grin

Ong Bak

Do not ever get into a fight with Tommy Jaa. Do not ever be standing around in broad daylight near Tommy Jaa, he'll probably just fly from one side of the screen and kick you in the face. Do not attack Tommy Jaa with a saw, he will just BLOCK THE TEETH WITH HIS BAD-ASS FOREARMS.

That is all.

Syriana

Mmmmmm, political...
From many points of view on the subject of the oil industry in the middle east and the US.
George Clooney, Matt Damon and Dr. Julian Bashir (Alexander Siddig?) from DS9 are in it, all doing some nice acting.
The plot or outcome isn't entirely obvious or laid out easily for you, you have to read between the lines and try to work out what's going down
Some really cool scenes and locations used too, i.e the big oil plant/ship.

Kind of grim view of the complicated goings on, I was left feeling "this is what's happening over there? will it ever change?  frown "

I went to see the movie on my own today and I thought it was really funny. Alyson Hannigan was just brilliant in it.

Evil Dead 2
Ash went three rounds against his possessed hand and almost lost! Hweeee!  big grin

None of the girls really got naked in this (the rotting corpse of his girlfriend dancing around does NOT count) but that was probably a plus considering what the hag demon in the cellar looked like.  big grin

A+

Interesting note: This was one of the earlier films featuring the laughing deer head in a starring role. Watch for him in later films 'Pearl Harbour' and 'Forrest Gump'.


As the laughing deer head said: "Hyuk hyuk hyuk!"
