Rush Hour 3

A great new addition to the Rush Hour movies, though it was very similar to the second one.
still, great comedy, especially from Chris Tucker and Yvan Attal, who was the French taxi driver.

Final grade: B+ to an A-

Fido

Think Stubbs The Zombie mixed with that bit at the end of Shaun Of The Dead where they use zombies for menial tasks and slave labour.

I was looking forward to this for a while because I thought it would be a neat idea, but I'm slightly disappointed, something about the scenes were disjointed and didn't quite fit well together.
And the cast seemed to be great together in some scenes but not really into others.
The whole film wasn't a disaster though, it was cool seeing Billy Connelly with grey skin and being in probably his quietest performance yet!
The kid was ok, his dad and the Zomcon guy, and Tim Blake Nelson of course.
Funny, gory but could have been funnier/gorier.

Bonus Review!
The Frighteners
Peter Jacksons (and Wetas) earlier version of a Nazgűl as the creepy monster in a spookomedy!
I usually catch the second half of this when it's on TV and it's really great, especially Jeffrey Combs as a really weird creepy G-man, lols

Who else likes this film?  big grin

Love The Frighteners. That the film isn't more widely known and acclaimed is nothing short of criminal - personally I think it's one of the best things Michael J. Fox ever did outside of Back to the Future. The effects are awesome, standing solid even after all these years, and the quirky mix of horror and humour gives it a distinct and original flavour.

Superbad
Super secret special preview before release, with FREE TICKETS, sweetened the deal to maximum sweetness!

Hilarious, the three main guys and the situations they get themselves into are just fantastically funny.

The Ex
Zach Braff + Jason Bateman = comedy gold, right? Wrong. Horrible, horrible movie. Blech. Such a waste of talent. The script was awful, the plot was lametastic, and it felt like the director and editor had no idea what they were doing. Amy Poehler was also wasted, only in 1 or 2 scenes. What a huge disappointment. Boo.

Pffft Michael J. Fox. The real star is none other than Jeffrey Combs.

SEPTEMBER DAWN

B+

Let me just say that I saw this movie and I came out thinking I had learned something.  Mormons killing innocent people in the name of God and how ironic it occurred on 9/11.  There is a lot debate over this issue.  It is just interesting that the Church of LDS hasn't acknowledged this incident until after news came out of SEPTEMBER DAWN's release, and 150 years after the incident.  The mystery is still whether or not Brigham Young was behind the massacre, what is fact though was that Mormons committed this massacre.  The movie took dramatic license, but it's made people requestion one of America's most tragic days in history.

Crazy black chick driving can't hit the friggin brakes, lol wut?!

Also my friend met QT at a signing in town where he got a script signed, their conversation went something like this:
Pal: Man, you're the scariest rapist ever.
QT: Oh man you saw it! (excited, talking about Planet Terror)
Pal: If I'm ever going to be raped, I do NOT want to be raped by you!
QT: Yeah it was so cool to shoot that, I was all like GRRAAAAARRRRR! *whatever gesture he does in the movie*

Hahaha.

Ocean's 13

A return to form after the lukewarm "12".  Excellent caper movie, set where it should be...  in Vegas.

Jettisonning Julia Roberts from the cast was a definite plus, as was adding Eddie Izzard and Al Pacino.

8/10

Just saw Superbad. It had its fair share of funny moments, though it wasn't as good as I was expecting it to be. Quite surprising once it gets an hour or so into it and you realise "Holy crap, this entire thing's taking place in one day," but, yeah, it seemed like there was some wasted potential.

The Simpsons Movie
I saw it in an almost empty theater. It was really funny. The meta-referential stuff that makes fun of the fact that it's a movie was very funny. Definitely the best new Simpsons material I've seen in a while, especially considering one of my favorite characters, Sideshow Bob, was missing from the movie. [Comic Book Guy] I'll give it a B+. Good, but not great. [/CBG]

A Dogs Breakfast
Fans of Dr. McKay from the Stargate series should like this, as he wrote, directs and stars in this, along with his sister and Dr. Beckett (Teal'c even has a cameo).
He basically plays a whackier zanier version of McKay and when his sister shows up with her new fiancé, the whacky zaniness begins!

Very funny.

This is one of the best and most poignant movies I've seen for a while. Iam going to make a point of buying this.

Will write more after a second viewing.

The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters

A documentary about two guys dueling over the highest score achieved on Donkey Kong.  This is pretty funny to watch.  If you like old video games combined with human drama inspired by something totally superficial, this is your movie.  Seeing how Billy Mitchell acts in this documentary is worth the price of admission itself.

Transformers
I hate Michael Bay, I hate him so very much.

He hasn't got an original idea in his head, all his movies are the same with the same crappy camera work, the same over the top score, the same awful dialogue and annoying themes, the man can't direct to save his life.

Just die already, I don't care how young he is, I'm just glad I'm not really a Transformers fan.

9 Songs

Michael Winterbottom's film meant to push the boundaries, with it's sexually explicit scenes, to be honest, it's all much of a muchness.

There's virtually no plot, dialogue, or story to speak of.  Two people meet at a Black Rebel Motorcycle Club gig at the Brixton Academy, go home and fuck.  They fuck some more, and go to see a few more bands.  Dull.

Yeah, the principle leads screwed for real (as the  Reverend JT (on Bo Selecta!) used to say, "You get to see it going in!" ) the scenes leave very little to the imagination (I've seen enough porn to know how unerotic it is, and once you've seen one cumshot, you've seen 'em all, to be honest), so much so, that you actually can't wait for the next gig scene to kick in. 

But when it does, that's dull as well!  Poor choice of bands, and just very  boringly shot.  Franz Ferdinand, Elbow, Michael Nyman (!?) and The Dandy Warhols come and go, and there's barely a flicker of interest between them.

It's the worlds most expensive porn, and it's rubbish.  The only saving grace is that it's only 63 mins long.

2/10

1 for running time, and 1 for Zia McCabe of The Dandy Warhols.

My dsl wasn't working when you posted this, but I gots cable now. I don't know anything about torrents.  frown I fail at internet. Anywhere to just download it?

And I think I like Death Proof more than Planet Terror. When I saw it in theaters, it was the other way around. But Death Proof gets better every time I see it. Both are awesome, though. I want to make babies with Rose McGowan. Preferably with the gun leg.

Saw IV

Another installement in the torture porn series that started it all, and it couldn't be more confusing...

Meanwhile the gore was decent. It fulled my blood lust for the night. Overall it wasn't great, however I'm going to see it again soon to try to make sense of it.

Helium The Silent Killer

Wow, I mean just wow. This documentary really floored me. I had no idea the helium was responsible for 55 deaths a year, or that it is in fact, so evil that not even the Nazis wanted anything to do with it, hence the Hindenburg incident. A real eye opener. This has Oscar and subsequent Nobel prize for Dan Quayle, the producer, written all over it. I highly reccomend seeing it.

30 Days of Night

Basically no daylight for a month in Alaska and the vampires fuck everyone up.  Thats really all you need to know about it.  My only complaint is that they do that whole super fast pace action scene thing.  You know people are getting fucked up but its too fast to see.

Snakes On A Plane

Not many people died, which was kind of disappointing. The two kids survived, which was totally lame. I don't even like Samuel L. Jackson that much. So I guess overall it was okay. But that bit where the snake bit that lady right on her boob... that was UNFORGETTABLE! I think she died in agony? Anyway, I'll never forget it.

American Gangster

Good movie, crazy star-studded cast. Yeah, I know Denzel and Russel Crow but I came to see the rappers:  Common, T.I. and Rza (Who's character had his Wu-Tang tattoo even in the 70's).  Fab Five Freddy and Anthony Hamilton were pleasant surprises.  I also enjoyed seeing Stringer Bell(I don't know the actor's name) getting shot again.

My bad, I thought people would be at least up to Season 3 by now.  Just keep in mind that people get shot in The Wire but don't necessarily die, so its not a complete spoiler.
