This is the second time I've gone alone to a movie, just so happens the same people made both those movies. Anyhooters, the ads gave the impression it was going to be one of those guy movies full of useless swear words and stupid sex jokes...which it was in part, but there were still a lot of great moments. Favourites include:
The imagination sequence involving the old lady in the liquor department - "Enjoy your remaining years!"
"I will. Enjoy fucking Jules!"
"I will!"
and towards the end the boys in the sleeping bags in their drunken 'I love you' state - "boop boop" on the nose.    laff
Ah. Also the whole setting of the car on fire and shooting at it...that looked like fun. I give it a 'would watch again but probably not buy..unless there's a blooper reel' out of 10.

There's a blooper reel. But you can also get various free items with it, depending on where you buy it. A book, a cd, a beanie, a shirt. I got the shirt. It's horrible.
Dude, the part that made me laugh the hardest was when Seth says "Jules and her stupid fucking friend..." haaaa.   laff

1408

Pretty creepy. A couple of stupid bitches in the cinema kept screaming at moments of heightened suspense, so I quietly rendered them unconscious with a liberal application of the time-tested 'smash their heads together' technique.

It's probably one of the best 'scary' Stephen King adaptations - classy and psychological as opposed to gory and low-brow. I'd rate it up with The Shining.

John Cusack does a great performance - he's alone on screen for most of the movie, but carries it excellently.

A few twists were very predictable, but on the whole an enjoyable atmospheric creepfest.

The Golden Compass

This is a gorgeous movie, if a little dry. Though the story's not as engaging as it should be, there's plenty of stunning eye candy to be had here, including vast pseudo-steampunk cities, golden airships, shape-shifting CGI animals, giant armored bears that sound remarkably like Gandalf, evil blonde bitches named Coulter (completely unlike anything we have on our world), vast Arctic vistas, huge battle scenes.

Also, Eva Green is hot.

I'm Not There

Went to go see this super-hyped Bob Dylan biopic last night, and although it was not the second coming of Jesus that many websites and magazines made it out to be, it was throughly enjoyable.

The movie is not a biography of Dylan, exactly. Instead, it's 4 or 5 seperate stories celebrating themes of his music and career. Like, there's a young black kid who rides the rails in the early 20th Century singing the blues named Woody (after Dylan's idol, Woody Guthrie) or Christian Bale portraying the 20-something folk rock Troubadour singing "The Times They are a'Changin".

But by far, the most remarkable segments of the movie are the 1965 Electric Mod Dylan played by Cate Blanchett. This role has "Best Actress" written all over it. She looks ridiculously like Dylan from the era, and shines in the role. She has the withdrawn, depressed, and sarcastic personality down...pat.

Just check out this picture:


The movie is not without it's flaws *cough*HeathLedger*cough*, but it's still very good.

But if you go in expecting anything other than an art film, you'll be disapointed.

Pretty good, very cool 'bad' guy. Some parts dont make sense, and certain plot decisions aggrivating. Just pay attention at the end, it comes very suddenly, but its good.

Across The Universe

Pretty awesome, the singing by the "actors" was great but the acting was a little hammy. A ton of great Beatles tunes in the movie however I was saddened at the abscence of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Eleanore Rigby, Maxwell's Silver Hammer and The Long And Winding Road.

All in all a solid A -

(P.S. The Dreamers was just a pretentious porno film)

Hmmm, pretty decent, but not mindblowing. Full of patriotism and politics and "the world is fucked!" messages, and that Jamie Foxx is the best guy ever and his shit don't stink.

Lol at Jason Bateman and yowsers at Jennifer Garners boobies.

Bee Movie



Beekeepers to Bee Movie: "Too many bees"

I like bees.  smile I don't think the Seinfeldesque jokes transplanted to a movie very well, though. Some of the scenes with just Jerry Seinfeld talking were all kinds of meh. It was very scientifically inaccurate about bees, too, I expected better! Most bees and mosquitoes are not male and they do NOT wear sweaters! I can't emphasis this enough. They just don't. Bee integrity.  no no

Disregard previous statement! I'm being too hard on it. It was much better than I'm making it out to be. One last thing: Chris Rock has the worst voice in the whole wide world.

I mean it. You do.

I had the same criticism about the titular critters in Antz. Also that they don't use pick-axes or cluster together into a wrecking ball...
...but it's something for the kiddies, I guess. Until they're old enough for their parents to take them along to slasher movies.

I Am Legend
Until I saw it in theaters, I seriously didn't know it was going to be a zombie-horror movie. I just thought it was going to be one of those sci-fi eerie end of the world/last man on Earth movies.

That said, I thought the first half of the movie, which was basically just Will Smith and his dog hunting, surviving, listening to Bob Marley, and renting adult movies was the best parts of the movie. Props to anyone who can really keep an audience's attention when it's only him. But when it basically becomes a Zombie movie, and you find other survivors, it lost alot of it's edge and appeal.

First Half: 9.5
Second Half: 8.2

stardust - B - good, but the illustrated book is better. great casting aside from mixed feelings on Claire Danes (love her but not sure she's right for the role) - no commentary track = sucky

simpsons movie - B+ - this movie is better than I expected, but I didn't expect much, while I had expected stardust to rock and it fell slightly short. I wish modern TV episodes of Simpsons were as good as this movie. Funny, nice plotting, not knock-my-socks-off. The animation is beautiful. DVD commentary - 2 of em. with a great PAUSE feature so the commentary won't overlap scenes (has this been done before? I think it's great) yay!

Your statement about modern episodes of the simpsons coupled with your reaction to the movie is slightly ironic.  I say this because the movie is simply put, a quiltwork job of older Simpsons episodes... the stories at least.  That's what I got from it anyways.

is that really irony? If only there were some sort of irony policing mod around here.

Let me try to break this down until he shows up.
I like older episodes
New episodes suck
Since I haven't really watched or like Simpsons on TV in several years, I was not expecting a lot from the movie
The movie was pretty good, especially considering my low expectations
A lot of the older episodes were worked, plot-wise, into the film

I don't get your point

I agree, perfect family movie. I'd recommend it to those with small children, especially. It's an uplifting film with a touching ending. May I also recommend Watership Down?

Ok... I had to think about this for a moment, and look up the definition to irony in Webster's.... anyways... I'll admit that irony may not have been the correct term, but here's the gist of what I got from what you wrote.

Essentially... the movie is basically a grouping of classic Simpsons episodes.  And you like classic Simpsons episodes.  You also liked the movie.  You don't like modern Simpsons episodes.  I infer you don't like modern Simpsons episodes because they are not like classic Simpsons episodes, however, you wish the modern Simpsons episodes were more like the classic ones.  The movie is new/modern, but really it's one big long classic Simpsons episodes marathon...  So what seems contradictory, is that you would rather watch classic Simpsons than new Simpsons, and the new Simpsons movie is actually classic Simpsons wrapped in a new package. 

From your review, it was impossible to ascertain whether you came to the same conclusion about the new Simpsons movie being a collection of reworked classic episodes.  That's where I derived irony and that is what I pointed out.  For the record, I wasn't trying to start an argument, just making an observation.
