Books has a problem with people being portrayed realistically, because he doesn't understand how normal people act.

4/10 for Books.

Very funny, can't think right now... the PS3/blu-ray made me warm inside. The fat producer was fucking hilarious. Won't spoil the surprise for anyone who doesn't know it yet.

Inspector Gadget (1999)

This film got terrible reviews from critics, and I can't figure out why. Sure, it's a remake of the original series... And sure, it's a reinterpretation of the original series... But it's live action, and you can't get away with the cartoon's style in live action. They found that out well enough in IG2. Anyway, as a nostalgic fan of the original series, I have to say that although the plot may not have been strewn with entirely original twists... And the Gadgetmobile may never have been so talkative... The thing was romp and I enjoyed it to bits. And I am also looking forward to the new series. No opinions on it yet, but I'm still looking forward to it.

B+

Mommie Dearest

Fuck all these new theatrical releases, I'm going back to 1978 when this book was popular and the movie was memorized of total weirdness.

All I have to say is that Joan Crawford is a fucking nutbasket.

I understood the Bender Should Not Be Allowed of TV reference when I saw it ages ago, but watching the "Wired Hanger" scene just did it for me. What. A. Scene.

Coverfield was is a shit movie.

It hasn't gotten better.

The Mummy - Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor

A lot better then the second one. And I can't stress a LOT BETTER enough.

Eve was replaced in this one and I can't say she was a good choice, she seemed a bit too bitchy.

Brendons voice started to get a little too deep and over the top as the movie went on, and really didn't have much to offer the movie.

Other than those two things everyone else did a good job and helped pull the movie up from where they where pulling it down.

Eastern Promises
Naomi Watts gets mixed up with some vory v zakone (Russian Mafia types).
Viggo Mortenson is quite slick in this, he doesn't seem to put any effort in to his acting, I don't know if it makes him lazy or badass.

Ooh, I vaguely remember seeing that on TV when I was younger. Maybe that was why I unexplainably had a weird crush on Bruce Willis. I can't actually remember anything that happened in that film.

Baby Mama

Giving it a B ... because we were the ones laughing in the cinema the loudest.

We all knew where this movie was heading to - and a cop out ending (aw look everyone is friends and has babies bla bla bla)... bit of light entertainment, some chuckles, but nothing outstanding really.

Left me leaving the cinema wondering about my own body clock ticking and my parents ringing in my ears about when they're going to get a grandchild *grumble*

I actually enjoy going to a movie with friends knowing it's not going to be a great movie.  It's usually a type of movie that is mildly entertaining, and I'll either be surprised... or we'll make fun of the movie while it's playing and then we'll make fun of it a lot more when we come home.  I think in a way that's worth the high cost of a movie ticket.

This movie was funnier than shit because of how shitty it was. I wish the guy would have killed more than 10 people in this movie. Too bad I can't say the same thing about Coverfield.

I got to see Wall·E on Monday night. "So what?", say the 'mericans and UKians among you, but you have to realise that for some ridiculous reason, it is premiering here a whole two months after the US and UK release. So in effect, I saw it a month early, thanks to the same people who provided Chay with his Hellboy 2 fun, mentioned above.

...and what a beautiful little gem of a film it is. The second half is typical Pixar brilliant, but it's the first half that verges on absolute perfection.  The story, direction, personality, and gorgeous looks - there is literally nothing to dislike about the first 45 minutes of this movie. But once things move into space, it reverts to a more traditional animated adventure compared with the more character-driven beginning and it's still great, it's just not as great - mainly due to the people.

Any sequence involving the human characters pales into relative mediocrity compared with the solely robot-infused bits. But that's only because the robots are just so amazingly brought to life. In comparison, none of the humans are invested with any sort of personality or likability whatsoever - which is fine when we first meet them (that's the point) - but I still felt the same way about them at the end.

I guess this, along with the overarching themes of the film, could be twisted, manipulated and construed as some sort of leftist, Deep Green, anti-human sentiment (which it has been by some imagination-deficient cultural warriors), but it really shouldn't be. I found nothing overtly political about the movie at all, with everything being there solely to service the central love story.

I desperately want to see it again to be sure, but at this stage it feels to me like this film is the best thing that Pixar has ever done - meaning a massive thumbs up. See it, buy it, love it.


(But then again, a bunch of you weren't even able to appreciate Cloverfield as a piece of film-making, so who knows, you could very well hate this too.)

That's funny, because the Conservatives have found plenty of right-wing-sounding sentiments, too. 

And Cloverfield was a triumph of mediocrity and unlikeable characters taking too long to die.

Cha: None have been announced yet, as far as I know.

The Q&A was cool for the fact that I was sitting in a room with Andrew Stanton and Ben god-damn Burtt, but the actual content was nothing you couldn't have gleaned from Empire or FilmInk. After 6 weeks, they're rather well versed in the 'Wall-E promotional' side of things now, and you can tell. The questions from the audience were pretty mundane and formulaic. Despite being pressed a couple of times, Andrew Stanton was utterly adamant that he wasn't trying to push a green agenda. As I mentioned, I'd read about plenty of people accusing him of just that, but it's just not something that I found when watching it. I think for someone to hate this film on political grounds (or any other), they would have to be sans soul in the first place.

HJS: To rationalise that - I'm not saying that the two films are in any way similar, just that I enjoyed both of them immensely, so my opinion may not be the ultimate guide to whether someone likes something. I can't factor in other peoples' wrongheadedness.

That's good. The Del Toro one was pretty good, he'd take a faily basic question and talk about it for ages and elaborate which was really interesting. This one guy stood up to ask a question and just started talking and i don't think anyone else in the audience had a clue where he was going with it, he just seemed to be spouting how knowledgable he was about Guillermo and then sorta ended with "...and how did this inspire you?"

Also, is the Cloverfield Bluray worth getting? Assuming you already have it...

Is Cloverfield actually any good Ben?  Your opinion means the most to me, but rotten tomatoes is disagreeing with you.  Maybe you can put those naysayers in their place.

Could you explain how that movie is/was awesome and describe the ways it has inspired you in life? smile

thx in advance,

Screw all your newfangled films, let's time warp back to 1991 to a little film called:
If Looks Could Kill aka Teen Agent! big grin
Bond spoof of the 90s featuring these guys (Richard Grieco and Roger Rees, who has the best evil English accent, see Robin Hood Men in Tights)


It's absolutely cheesy and badly written, but remember seeing the trailer for this when it came out and I wanted to see it so much, and now I finally have and it was cool enough to ignore it's flaws.
Xray specs in the hands of a teenager and the first thing he does is look at womens boobs? That's so what I'd do! big grin

Haven't got it yet. From the looks of it, the extras are the same as the DVD, which I borrowed and checked out (nothing special, really.) I'm not sure I'll buy it. I don't think it's something I'd re-watch over and over.
