Wall E

This film was absolutely gorgeous! It has great  animation  and great storyline. Wall E and Eve are just so adorable together   love

I totally agree, Juliet.  I took my niece & nephew to this, expecting the same high level animation & story quality that I've seen in every Pixar film, but I was totally blown away by this one.  Ratatouille had been my favorite Pixar film up to this point; it's now Wall E...

X-Files 2

It was like watching an ok episode of the TV show....Meh. The movie's B plot with the sick kid didn't really need to be in there.

Still better than Hancock.

Space Chimps
D+

When a $5 billion NASA probe disappears into an intergalactic wormhole, the agency recruits Ham III (Andy Samberg), grandson of the the first chimpanzee in space, to help retrieve the wayward craft.

However, unbeknownst to Ham III, the movie sucks from that point on. Too many monkey puns, not enough bear puns, and nothing remotely resembling intelligent design in the entire production company, Space Chimps is an ultimate Space Wimp.

I downloaded The Dark Knight. Watched the first half hour. I loved it. But then I decided it's not worth watching such a low-quality copy. I want to do the right thing and watch the movie for real.

Will anybody take me to see Batman? I am so poor.  frown

So what, you shaved the Batman Symbol into you pubes?

Zombie Strippers

This movie was just as horrible as the Strippers Fake titts.

I'm gonna climb my way to the top of the Poll. Even if I have to eat the brains of those that stand in my way.

That line was not from the movie but more of a synopsis.

Can not be Rated.

Magnolia:

Creative, masterfully crafted cinema. Nearly perfect in every way, although it does to climax about half way in, and keeps going another 1.5 hours. But it's still all good. Capable of moments of pure magic.

10/10

I stand by my previous comments regarding this! It was more disjointed and shallow than BBS, but I can't believe anyone can consider that a fault.  smile

Whale Rider

Good...maybe a little slow at times, and not that much really happens. Still, it's a nice movie and worth your time.

8/10

Wanted

a big fat Meh, starts with a "1000 years ago" speil which was off putting. The action is pretty cool, Didn't know it was directed by the guy who did night watch, but it made sense when anton was in it... (The guy with the rats). End was lame, (I'm surpised that Fox wasn't main dudes sister... lolz...)

Morgan Freeman is 71 now and cannot successfully pull off saying "Mother fucker".

I'm finally seeing it this weekend. I've also been tempted by online streaming... but i couldn't do that to myself.

@Chay: Will you pay for an IMAX ticket for me? I'm sure I'll see it again. Go on. You love me, don't you?  love

Pom Poko

Still pretty good, but below average for a Studio Ghibli film. Extremely depressing though, and made more effective by the attempt to be cheery. All the testicles didn't really bother me...although I could see how it would be a distraction for others.

The Dark Knight.

Awesome. Need I say more?

10/10.

...I actually nearly pooped myself at several points in the movie, although I was prepared for the disappearing pencil trick to be much worse than it actually was/that the papers made out. I guess they could have made it a 15, I think it was quite brutal for under-12's, but amazing nonetheless.

And had no idea about Two-face. Then again, this was the first Batman film I've seen.

To be honest, the Joker was pretty much a half-assed psychologist...if only in a totally unethical way  hmpf. I liked the way in which the Joker revealed some of his past...plus I didn't figure his smile was scars until I watched the movie...in fact, I remember watching teh cartoon batman when I was a kid, and I'm sure he was just painted..but then again, I digress.

Heath Ledger=stole the show, although Dent and Wayne were awesome. I laughed at the spinning doggies, hehe. And didn't care much for Rachael.
Anyway, I'm wibbling on in disjointed sentence things...wouldnt want anyone sneaking up on me at work, would I?

Comics don't even have a definitive account, but the one I go by is from The Killing Joke (heh).

If I remember, The Killing Joke also established that he changed the story to keep himself sane. This version of the Joker was heavily influenced by the Killing Joke and the Long Halloween.

Ah, Chay, yeah, I did think that-they didn't seem to match up, which fitted in with his character, I guess. But then again, if the first story was true then the second story would make sense as he already had teh scars, and then the damage he inflicted on himself would only cut the inside of his mouth. That's what I figured anyway, but I noticed it was a bit strange the way they only kind of half matched up  hmpf

Spinning doggies=when Batman threw one of the rottweilers off of him, and it spun round. I laughed....everyone turned round to see who the person was laughing at a completely non-funny part of the film, heh.  tongue

The first time I saw it everyone went batshit after the pencil trick, but the second time, there was only one dude laughing his ass off... very weird.

Goodbye, Dragon Inn.

A Taiwanese film about...nothing really. Wikipedia says it had several plot lines. Including:

"the ticket woman tries to find the projectionist, searching for him in order to present him with a steamed bun, yet they never meet."
and
"A young hustler wanders around the cinema in search of a homosexual encounter."
and
"An old man who was one of the actors who appeared in the original Dragon Inn, watches the film with tears in his eyes."

However, you never really get any of this watching it. Most of the shots are left for minutes at a time. It can be very boring, but at the same time strangely captivating. It's a movie that you really don't know what to think of it. One of the weirdest, surreal films I've seen...It will stick in your mind, in any case.

5/10? 10/10? I have no idea.

From what I've read/heard the point of the Joker is that he doesn't have a back story (or one you can claim is true, anyway) - he's just crazy and evil and whatever. You can't deal with him like a normal bad guy. He won't cave in to the demands or desires of traditional criminals (punishment/reward). This supposedly is what makes him so scary (or awesome, take your pick). It also makes for a more interesting character.

The exact same thing happened when I saw it. I started laughing when that scene started because I knew it was coming, and people were looking at me oddly for that. The first time I saw it, it felt more like a comedy movie from the crowd reaction. Few peole laughed overall the second time I saw it.
