Cloverfield

I liked it. The camera didn't bother me. Also, I'd still die for Lizzy Caplan's vagina.

Thumbs up

Well it would be more portable after...

Anyhoo, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
Quite a slow moving film (lots of staring scenes) broken up by narration every now and then to get things moving, and the spoiler is in the title so it's more about the relationships of the people around Jesse and how Ford came about murderising him (I don't know how factually accurate it is but it was based on a novel).
I think the fact that Brad is such a hunkgasm as the anti-hero, and Ford is played by a jerky Casey Affleck, makes him that bit more unlikeable.
Really great acting by the two main guys and Sam Rockwell was good too.

Am I allowed to say that I am Legend was better than Cloverfield?  No?  T-O-O-BAD!

Also, nice to see Salli Richardson getting some work in between seasons of Eureka.

There Will Be Blood

I think i enjoyed it. It was similar to no country for old men, in the sense that there was no dialogue followed by lots of dialogue. Eli was fucking creepy, Plainview was great, went a little bit nuts at the end.

As a whole i enjoyed the movie, even if it didn't have a straight forward a to b story line.

Here we go with some more ridiculous
One-Sentence Reviews!


The Mist

Some things never change, like the pure fun of watching hicks get disemboweled by hideous monsters or the uncomfortable silence in the cinema when the director tries to get all deep and philisophical about the above.


Fight Club

If guilty pleasures were criminal, this mindfuck masterpiece of disturbingly violent and psycho filmmaking would warrent the death penalty.


Epoch

Rough-hewn stapling of poorly thought-out sci-fi themes, cutout characters, and shoddy special effects make this one for the whole family... to shit on.


Zodiac

An entertaining but flawed flick; ignoring the fact that the main character doesn't appear to age a day from 1969 to 1991, basing films too closely on actual events makes them convoluted and overlong, with far too many characters that could easily have been combined for brevity without losing any of the story.


Cowboy Bebop: The Movie (Knockin' on Heaven's Door)

For those who have seen the series, this is more of the same awesomeness, just bigger - and for those who haven't, your pathetic lives are incomplete.


The Kingdom

It's, like, ironic and stuff because, like, their culture is different from our culture, and stuff... oh and - America - FUCK YEAH!!    puke


Die Hard 4.0 (AKA - Live Free or Die Hard)

Bruce is back, and he's brought some hip young co-stars to further highlight the fact that he's actually older than God, but he can still yippie-ki-ay with the best of them.


Shoot 'Em Up

Guy at Blockbuster told me it was the most stupid movie he'd ever seen, so I didn't rent it.


Vacancy

Got about ten minutes into the movie before a dirty great scratch on the disc interfered with further viewing - though the first ten minutes were okay I suppose.


Day of the Dead

Basically the same as Dawn of the dead, but this time set in a military bunker.

Cloverfield
Thank god thats over, I must be the only person that didn't like this movie. Nothing ground breaking or new, I came out thinking 'Godzilla+Blair Witch+Saving private Ryan', if Ididn't pay to see this I would have walked out.

A Big Fat F.

Justice League: A New Frontier
I very much enjoyed the 'Justice League Unlimited cartoon and this was no different.
I liked the 50's backdrop and the origin stories of the characters, and the blood and violence. Now there was not a lot of blood and violence but compared with the TV shows there was tons.
Very Enjoyable.

I bloody hate that....! Can't people just look after dvd's, I swear it has nearly turned me off hiring out movies anymore....
I just got out a few last week including
The Protector and most of the awesome fight scenes either skipped or locked up so I missed half the film....what I did see was great though....(except for the lame plot)

Has anybody seen The Prestige man this in an awesome film....saw it in the cinema then just saw it again....a lot better the second time for sure but at the end I was still in awe at the twisty ending....schweet....

Let me break....let me break you down....for your sake....I will break you down...."[/small]

It is a very awesome movie! i <3 it! Just after i saw it, i then saw The Illusionist, and it pales in comparison. Takes a few minutes to get used to the narritive form/style of the diaries, but it does make for nice twists.

Vacancy

Got about ten minutes into the movie before a dirty great scratch on the disc interfered with further viewing - though the first ten minutes were okay I suppose.

Die Hard 4 was my least favorite. I mean the action was good and all but I didn't think it fit in with the Die Hard movies. It seemed like another Bruce Willis-blows-up-stuff with the addition of yippie-ki-aye thrown at the end.

Also about that lovely catchphrase:


As for Vacancy, if you don't take the film too seriously thean its a pretty enjoyable little thriller. This and the movie Red Eye are some awesome movies that are under the radar but really worth watching. Now I'll admit that Vacancy has some "how can _____ know/do/say ______?" moments, but if you overlook them it's still a fine film.

John Rambo.

I don't know!
Its... its like... the movie was on speed.
Alright, it been a few years since I saw any of the Rambo movies but I can remember that they weren't like this.

John 'Rambo' lives as a cobra catcher and is approached by christian aid workers who want to go to burma, he makes friends with women aid worker and takes them, they get caught/killed, Rambo joins Soldiers mercenaries, rescues remaining christian aid workers and kills over 100 men or there abouts.

Very graphic killing, lots of exploding heads, legs, arms, chests, pretty much everything body wise explodes or gets ripped to shreds.
Very good movie if you have a fetish for bloody limbs, but also good if you want a good chuckle and are not squimish by gore.

B+ for extra bloodiness, please.

DrT edit: sorry aid workers not mercenaries, but hey they went there with bibles to hand out, so, whatever.

10,000 BC

It looked like this movie, the SFX and the CGI took a step back to the year 10,000 BC and used the technology from then to make this movie.

The quality was shit, the story was meh and the acting and dialog was tragic. In a lot of the dark scenes the picture was dirty and there was alot of white noise.
The CGI was nothing special, in fact, I was amazed at how bad it was considering this movies budget. It was like going to the Museum of Natural History and seeing all the stuffed exhibits walking around like stuffed exhibits.

Its a prophecy movie about two people who love each other and who will save the tribe, but wait theres more, the chick get kid napped and the guy goes after her and the other tribe people who were taken too. He teams up with a Rival to the chieftom, the old chief and a young boy who wants to be a hunter. And  along their journey the characters meet a new people who have a new prophecy that main character fulfills.

Also, D'lah (main character) finds out what happened to his farther along his journey.

I give this movie.

Apocalypto: GREAT freaking movie.  I think it was black balled for Gibson's anti-semetic comments at the time of production.  I won't say he deserved it or not.  I will say an outstanding film is being overlooked.
