I saw Transformers last night. As far as hyperactive, aimless films with no plot go, it was OK. It was all very pretty - when the camera stopped moving long enough to make anything out. Not a whole lot there for the epileptics, I'm afraid. That said, these days, and for that amount of money, if it didn't look brilliant, there'd be some explaining to do. Thousands of becubicled Maya animators and obese render farms don't really count for much when it comes down to writing a script.

I do want a new Camaro, though. And a Megan Fox.

I also saw Harry the other day. I haven't read any of the books, and I'm not exactly immersed in the whole phenomenon, but I think the films are generally well made/acted and are quite enjoyable. This one was no exception. A couple of the kids can wear thin on occasion, but the adult characters are just so superbly cast and played out that you forgive it many times over.

Transformers: I just went out to see it tonight and WOW.......just wow. (Yes a  bit late but I like to wait for the crowds to die down.) The CGI was eye-popping and very realistic, with CGI characters and live ones interacting wonderfuly. The story was pretty good but not great. The acting I felt was pertty good, best acting by Shia LaBeouf.

I guess this is a good time to add that Transformers was my all time favorite childhood cartoon from when I was 4 to 7-ish, I loved the origanal 1984 seires.

I also liked the more modern looks for the Transformers, the only thing I turly hated was Optimus Prime has lips....that sucked  frown

To all those people who hated the film, I just have this to say. I respect your opinions but just loosen up a little, Spleesh

(Yes I am aware that I just pulled off an Amy)

I'll give it an A great but not perfect.  big grin

Deja Vu

A time travel movie that contradicts it's own established rules! Sounds like a recipe for disaster, eh? Eh? Well you'd be mostly right if you were thinking that, but if you ignore the huge gaping plotholes (and there are a lot of them, so watch out!  eek ) you'll enjoy yourself!

The main plot is pretty stupid, but it didn't take itself TOO seriously, there were a few nifty ideas (the car "chase" scene was original), and I had a good time, so:

B

Stranger Than Fiction

I wanted to like this one, I really did! But I didn't.

Maybe it's just because I hate comedy-drama hybrids, but not a single joke made raised more than a cringing half-smirk from me. As for the drama side of things, it was just too sappy and cliche (I know that was the idea) to be interesting. The bits with Tony Hale were the only times I cared at all, and even he couldn't save it.  cry

Sorry Stranger Than Fiction, but you were too maudlin to be funny and too sophomoric to be clever.

A lot of nerds are going to hate me for this:

Surfs Up

Like, totally rad, and way better than Happy Feet.
I loved the documentary style, some really cool shots in there (like the night shot with the camera light in the jungle), and some of the interviews with side characters were fantastic.
Because it's set on a tropical island the colour palette was more varied too, and there wasn't silly singin or dancing every 10 minutes or multiple Robin Williams characters ruining the illusion.
The leads voices were great too, Jeff Bridges Zooey Deschanel and n00b Shia LaBeouf were great to listen to.

I thought Clockwork Orange seemed somewhat overrated... but that's probably an opinion coloured from having first seen many later films that trod the same ground it pioneered.
There just wasn't much to it though.

Seven Samurai... yeah, fair enough.

But still... GB&U is so many shades of blindingly awesome.

I went to see The Simpsons Movie and it was amazing and well funnier then the TV show! The storyline is really good and the gags were really funny.


The movie is so brilliant and I would see it again and get it on DVD when it comes out in a few moths.

The Lookout

Good film, Joseph Gordon-Levitt surprised me again (his other surprise being Brick).
His character is a bit like the guy in Memento, he was in a car accident and he doesn't remember stuff too good, he works as a night janitor in a bank and some bad dudes try to make him turn to the darkside and help them rob it... ze plot thickens!

Isla Fisher, Laura Vandervoort (new Supergirl), Carla Gugino (only one scene, no bewbs  frown ) and Jeff Daniels are all sexay in it too.  big grin

The Simpsons Movie
I thought that it was amazing! Funny and made up for a lot of the shows recent decline in qualtity. I think that they could have done alot more with the fact that it was PG13 and could have used alot of the stuff that they can't have on t.v. but the stuff they did have was amazing. I'm defiantly going to see it again as soon as I'm actually at home for more than 30 minutes. A++++.

Transformers... didn't end the way it looked like it was going to.

Optimus Prime is awesome, but Megatron is double-plus awesome.

I can smell you, Boy!

Heh. He calls people "boy". It's a giant robotic version of Uncle Monty. What is wrong with me? I can't stop comparing people to Monty.

What was I going to say? Oh, yeah. Optimus Prime alone is a decent enough reason for Transformers II. The other Autobots were also cool, I guess.

Parts of the film were just sheer genius. To punish and enslave, heheheh.

The "Sector Seven" stuff was lame with a capital AM and possibly E, there was indeed too much romance and not enough human-killing, and I concur that
was the best part of any movie, ever.

Megatron's malevolent snarl of "Priiime!!!" was another excellent moment, but not enough to earn this film a rating higher than seven disguised murderous battle machines out of nine. There's a mark missing because it was never going to be as good as it seemed to be when I was six. For some reason (and I saw one of the original episodes the other week on YouTube) I remember them as being absolutley stunning on both a visual and emotional level. Of course, this is bollocks. They're crudely animated, and less sophisticated than the teletubbies. However, my mind insists that when I was six, this was the best thing that existed. So, I conclude that there is instead a general fault within the Universe and that we should be expecting real life to crash and display the Blue Screen Of Death any day now.

The simpsons movie.
I was a little wary going in to the theater,but it turned out hilarious.
The best was the collective gasp of shocked parents when bart had his nudity scene.
Well, you shouldnt have brought your 5 year olds to see it.

The Simpsons Movie

I  had my doubts, yes... Was it worth paying money to see? Was the quality of the film itself better than the recent episodes? Did it translate well into a movie?

Answer to all three is a major YES.

This is the first time in years I've really want to see a movie at the cinema twice - everything was perfect, I can't remember laughing this hard openly in public. I like the "you can't do that on TV" moments (my mom laughed insanely during those. Like when Homer was flipping everybody off going to the sinkhole she couldn't stop laughing... my poor broth0er didn't get it, she had o explain it to him :P), and the acually pretty elabortate story.

Everybody go see this film right now. A+

Transformers, awesome special effects and action scenes were great, the plot was OK, believable enough, the acting and dialogue was pretty meh, especially the attempts at humor, I don't know if it's just me, but seeing a giant robot piss on John Turturro didn't really impress me

Simpsons Movie
Firstly, I'd like to say that the music was mroe than that of what I'd have ever imagined to be in the movie. There were many shockers in the movie that I loved, such as Marge actually cursing for once (z0mg sh3z 4 b4d c00k3h!:rolleyes  smile, Bart's nudity scene (I was slightly blinded for a vague moment. Ok, not really), Homer flipping the town off, the to be continued gag, FOX running advertisements in-movie (I wouldn't put that past them to do that in future movies for real), etc. My only slight dislike was Marge's voice was more like her mother's in the tape for Homer. All in all, a great movie. I'd expect nothing less.

A (or a 3 and 1/2 out of four *insert gag here*)


Harry Potter the Fifth
Decent enough, but to me, not up to par in the rest of the movies. I felt it was too dark, and was lacking that humor that kinda lightened the mood (where's Ron saying "bloody hell", eh? that's his catchphrase. You DO NOT take that away!) I'm not saying it was a horrible movie, seeing as Umbridge was as hateable as ever.

A

Ratatouille
Ah, PIXAR's done it again. This one was better than Cars. The music is pretty nicely done, and I love all those little moments Remy tries to make up for Linguini's clumsiness. It seemed...more mature for a G rated movie, and the rest of the older crowd will appreciate this as much as I did. The movie certainly had some great one-liners in it.

This is turning into "300" again. Have you all gone mad? It was meh. MEH!! Nurdy, you thought it was meh, right? Oh, dear God, is there no one who realizes that The Simpsons Movie was meh? Surely there's at least one other person who can truly see this movie for what it actually is, a big fat steaming pile of meh. I will not rest until I find you, sir or madam.

Transformers.

Went to see on Thursday with my family and thought it wasnít that good. it was too long and they made the story very boring. The only good thing about the movie was the action parts.

I love Bumble Bee. I think he the best robot there and he had me laughing hen he peed on one of the copper. Also like the bit where the robot where in the garden.
