Ali
Michael Man is the man, his blue, black and white/cream/grey palette makes his films look so super duperly good that I probably wouldn't even care if he made a crappy movie (I even liked Miami Vice, so whut?)
Will Smith plays a good Ali, or as good as I imagine him to be, never met him myself but apparently Smith studied him.
Anyhoo, the fights are great, and it was easy to make the film interesting because Ali has an interesting life.

I didn't even recognise John Voight as Howard Cosell until I saw him in the credits, lolz.

I have to catch up on my reviews...

Dark Knight

Saw it twice, loved it mroe the second time. The Joker was considerably more funny the second viewing as well. Heath did an amazing job with the character.

No less than an A for this film


Wall-E
I thought the animation was spectacular and the story had a great message to it... Of course the whole time I wanted to just hug the little robot.

Get Smart
I loved it, and to Xanfor, there was a Cone of Silence. I found it funny.....

I finally saw The Dark Knight in it's entirety, in a fully legal movie theater.

...what can I say? It was amazing. Even better than Batman Begins, which I loved. I want to give Christopher Nolan a high five. Does anybody know if he's going to return for another sequel? It would be a shame if some crappy new director gets hired to continue the series.

My Neighbors the Yamadas

Most boring Ghibli movie yet...not much of a story, mainly random vague occurances involving a not-that-interesting family. A middling effort.

Just the "bat voice" in general was ridiculous.  That was the only laughable/annoying thing I found in the film.  That really could have been toned down, a lot.

Wall-E

Some of the best animation I've ever seen, I really liked Wall-E and EVE, I also liked the story and the message A-

Pineapple Express

Really funny, the ending went on a little too long, but they wouldn't have been able to pass it off as an "action" film without it, so it's not that big of a deal B/B+

Titanic

 Obviously not the first time I've watched it, but after reading what I thought of as unwarranted and unjust hate toward it, I felt compelled to view it again. I just don't see where the notion that this is a bad movie comes from. Sure it has occasionally heavy-handed and corny dialogue, but when it's at it's best, it can be genuinely evocative.

 Just because it made a load of money and won a ton of awards doesn't mean you have to view it with resentment. It's excellently crafted and at moments capable of beauty. People seem to form a negative view of the movie in a kind of pyramid scheme when sometimes they're not taking the movie for what it is, just listening to what other people say and mindlessly agreeing (I call it the Vista Syndrome).

 It's unfortunate that macho guys who automatically reject any film with emotion spread slander and give Titanic a bad name.
It's far from my favourite movie, but that doesn't mean it's the trash some people say it is. The music goes well to help create the atmosphere, and the characters were well-cast and interesting.

High special effects movies don't have to be dismissed as shallow self-indulgence. The odd combination of the movie's elements worked to turn off some people I think...Anyway, I'm rambling.

Star Wars: A New Hope - Revisited
Adywan to the rescue! A truly epic bit of fan editing. Over two years he made over 150 edits for continuity, better sound, better visuals, original charm (Greedo doesn't even get a shot off!) improving on the Lucas "do-over" that disappointed so many hardcore fans.

Various cool little edited things that you may or may not notice to a now revitalised classic.

Step Brothers
Quite hilarious, but not exactly a good movie.
C-

Tropic Thunder
Very hilarious. Downey, Jr., made this film. I didn't even notice it was Tom Cruise, which made it funnier when you found out it was him.
B+

Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog
Great story, great acting, very funny. And singing superheroes!
A

Iron Man
One of my favorite Marvel movies. Once again, Downey, Jr., did a fantastic performance.
A-

The Incredible Hulk
Very good, but not quite Iron Man. Sets up The Leader and, along with Iron Man, the Avengers quite nicely.
B


Note: I give grades of A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, ... D-, E, and F, for a total of 14 possible grades. This allows for more diversity and exactness than a traditional "out of 10" system.

And, yes, I actually do think through my grades and don't automatically give A+'s out.

Ya know I liked Chevy Chase as Fletch, while the second one was meh, the first one is good. And Geena Davis is a chick named Larry, how awesome is that?

But you know I am a fan of these Will Ferrel movies, I want to see Pineapple Express, because I don't know stupid humor is funny sometimes. I guess it's more for teen audiences with really gross humor.

And I would go see Tropic Thunder if I didn't have to listen or see that whiny bitch Ben Stiller. I hate him with a burning passion.

He and William H. Macy are on my "To Kill" list.

The Clone Wars
Warner Brothers and not 20th Century Fox logo?
Different opening music and title, and no scroll or pan down to planet?
Oh no no no, off to a bad start already.
This is one of the weaker of the prequel era movies.
The story is ok, I can accept helping out Jabba for the War effort and the Separatist plot sure, but the dialogue is way off, too teenage/kiddy for me, badly written and acted out by the new addition, Anakins padawan Asohka Tano.

The thing that annoyed me most other than Jabbas uncle (voiced by the worst casting choice evarrr, who also does a weird Sean Connery impression for Separatist General Loathsom), was that neither Ventress nor Asohka appear in Episode III but have no story wrap up to indicate why.

Other than that, it was cool seeing all the 3D Republic hardware smacking the droids around, and a baby Hutt is kinda funny lookin'.

Yeah, didn't you realize that this was just a TV show pilot that was converted to a theatrical movie as a last-second shameless cash-grab?

I was looking forward to taking my son to see it, but the critics have really been savaging it. I'll probably see it anyway for curiosity's sake if nothing else.

Oddly enough, they previewed an actual 30 minute episode to the press a while back, and it was almost unanimously praised. I guess this style of animation works better on TV than it does on the big screen.

How does that explain anything?

She survives the fall into crevasse the TV series (unlikely as it seems): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asajj_Ventress#Clone_Wars_animated_series

So she just disappears somewhere after the TV and movie events I just saw, Asohka too.

You Don't Mess With The Zohan

I want to Bam Boom Adam Sandler big time. Oh his charcetr Zohan is so sexy, love it when he shake his thing  by thrusting his cock all the time and getting the bam boom with all his female customers. The way he does their hair was really hot. It's a good film but I think some parts are slow and shouldn't be in the movie. I would go and see it again for his sexiness.

Oh Liam, you stud you! Also, best voice ever. this movie is deeply satisfying. So much violence, so many many awesome kills. I'm still thinking about that guy waiting for the power bill to not be paid... you'll know who I mean. Pretty good story too.

Anakin kills her. It was on one of those animated Clone Wars DVD-only releases I think. I saw it happen at any rate. He murdered her!  eek (Part of his descent to the dark side).

Well, she just fell, is all. Jedi can survive all sorts of things. :P She's quite out and active in other stuff, mainly the comics. She pretty much Obi-Wans nemesis throughout the various Clone Wars tie ins.

Hellboy 2

Pretty cool. Really like Del Toro's creatures. This move have good humour, really like Tambor and the steam nazi dude...

Anyone farmiliar with the mythology know the story behind the two rings?

It was also really cool because it was a special session with a QA with Guillermo Del Toro afterwards (via phone though...). Really interesting to hear about his childhood and his fascination with monsters.

Yeah, he has some fascination with mentally challenged people in his movies.
Also, putting his wife and dad in them.

Hellboy II
Creatures and fights good, but there's just something not right about the characters acting in it, and I think the last one as well, maybe we're spoiled after more real-world based comic book movies like TDK and Iron Man.

Cloverfield. (Or: This Is What Qualifies As Filmmaking Today)

I wasn't expecting to kinda like this movie, after being exposed to the huge amount of coverage it got. It seemed like a good premise I would enjoy. And...it begins with this boring party with ridiculous characters you hate. It just gets worse...everything about this "film" is absolutely pitiful...such a disappointment. Not to mention the worst ending in movie history. I really really hated this. One of the few movies I actually regret wasting my time on, it isn't worthy of this long a review.
