Die Untergang:

Good, until they all leave the bunker. Then the film tells history to suck a dick with a generic sort of ending. Still worth watching if Historical unaccuracy doesn't bother you. Weirdoes.

And that's one of the best movies ever, historical inaccuracy doesn't bother me in the slightest.

Zombi 2 - Almost boring
Trainspotting - Great
Event Horizon - Cheesy
Cast Away - Wilson : (
Princess Bride - Prepare to die! Classic and perfect.
The Perfect Storm - Good, wet.
The Sixth Sense -  eek
12 Monkeys -  love It said based off La Jetee in the start, ruining the ending for me :|
Homeward Bound - Nostalgic
A League of Their Own - Underrated and brilliant for a baseball movie. I love it.
Miracle at St Anna - Worst war movie ever. Completely incompetent and boring.
House on haunted Hill - Old VHS, a few of the characters are interesting.
Road Trip - Whoa, I just noticed I these two "trip" movies in a row. Completely a coincidence.
Senior Trip - Extremely underrated, one of my favourite comedies.
Gonzo - Hunter S. Thompson  love ..  cry

Transformers 2

This is the closest I've been to walking out of the cinema, and I would have if not for my two friends on either side of me. They said it only went for 2 1/2 hours but I still think it went for 5. Every aspect of this movie sucked and I want my $14 back!

I watched Dear Zachary last night. If you've seen this movie you know what it was like, there's no point in making a review for someone who hasn't seen it.
I will just say everyone should make an attempt to see this. Downloading or otherwise mad

And why was it so horrible, Bianca? I actually thought it was better than the first. This one had less explosions and make-me-want-to-barf camera angles, focused more on the fighting aspect of the Transformers versus exploding everything, and it grew the relationships of the Transformers to one another rather than making them mindless machines. And I actually could stand watching Shia for once in my life! (I still dislike Megan Fox.) And I would've liked a lot more of John Turturro, but for what he was in it was good. Sure, the plot didn't have much of a human touch, but meh. I might have to retroactively lower my rating on Transformers to rank this one higher than that.


I've seen a lot of movies lately, I'll post a review of alllll of them later.

It was all just so irritating, they dragged on parts that didn't need to be dragged on, they could have filled the plot holes instead. All of the main characters were so unlikable I wanted them to all be killed, the jokes they attempted werent funny, the list goes on...but anyway, by the end of the movie as soon as the credits started I was out of my seat and heading towards the door.

Road To Perdition
Gah Tom Hanks is such an underactor, or maybe he's so good he makes it look easy, I dunno. He just doesn't make an effort or something...
Anyway I thought Jude Law (really creepy) and the young kid were better, and well done to Daniel Craig for the accent.

Sam Mendes makes a good 1930s gangster father and son journey story!
Some striking shots I enjoyed were the snowy bike, and the smothering scene, and then the shot of Hanks looking out the window at  the end, great stuff.

What I find amazing is the fact you don't mention why you didn't like the movie. What, you prefer vampires that sparkle?

I liked the movie, but there were aspects of the movie that I wished weren't put into the movie. I sure hope the twins were eaten by the underwhelming devastator, Sideswipe and Sunstreaker are supposed to be the twin.
But still Transformers: The Movie as been the best one so far and it was made in 1986.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Oh dear God. Make it stop. Seriously. There is a school of thought out that that one ought to be able to enjoy a film like this if you disengage your brain and roll with it. Well, I'm sorry, but anyone who tells you this is a filthy, filthy liar who's looking to get stabbed in the kidneys. It's not just retarded. It's the sort of retarded where, every time you think you might be able to settle in and enjoy some robots beating the crap out of each other, something absolutely fucking stupid will mug your attention, leaving  you wondering why on earth you're watching something obviously aimed at 13 year olds. Which, obviously, it is, but this is a film that will spare no expense to remind you of that fact every 30 seconds.  Just... arrrrgrh.

No Books, we went to see the movie because we liked the first one. Is it wrong to assume that the sequel might be entertaining and fun? That's all that these movies are, sheer entertainment that doesn't stimulate thinking or intellectual thought. They're supposed to be fun. But when the movie is 2 hours and 34 minutes of bullshit retardified logic, acting, and effects, yeah we're gonna be disappointed.

My boyfriend and I went on opening night, the theater was packed. And everyone around us seemed to be enjoying the film. So even though he and I thought it was fucking stupid movie, the majority did like it. Summer blockbusters aren't suppose to be taken seriously. And there are always gonna be people who hated it or absolutely loved it. I'm just on the hate side.

The bad thing is that studios make sequels based on ticket stubs and not critics reactions. And, if they label it a blockbuster and release it in the summer, it's going to get lots and lots of money. No matter how bad this movie is in the eye of critics or the side of the public who likes to think, there will be a sequel and there will continue to be ones until (1) the movie is seriously horrible, (2) the drones who go to them every year realize it's not worth it anymore, or (3) the actors in them realize it's not worth it anymore.

I'll go with the general consensus that Transformers 2 sucked.

The three tweens were all annoying side-kick characters. The dialogue was rubbish. the Robot girl was stupid. I can just imagine Michael Bay jizzing in his pants when he decided to put the Bad Boys II poster in the movie.

Also, for a movie that draaaaaaagged on, it sure did end abruptly.

I don't mean to jump on the bandwagon of criticising people watching Transformers movies, but with the money you all spent, you could have rented Magnolia FOURTEEN TO EIGHTEEN TIMES depending on your age and whether or not you had a student concession card and some other factors! mad

Double Feature at the Delsea Drive-In!

Year One
A well-natured but misguided mishmash of 10,000 BC, Road Trip and The Book Of Genesis.  It earned a few chuckles but only one genuine laugh (Abraham claiming he and Isaac were playing a game called "Stabby Stabby Burny Burny).  Said laugh was the only funny bit not in any of the trailers.  Jack Black and Michael Cera play themselves, only in ancient times.  Final thought: wait for it to be on TV.

The Hangover
I am not a better person for having watched this.  That said, it was the most fun I've had in a movie in a long time.  It will be required viewing at my friend's bachelor party next year.

Thanks for mentioning Delsea, Nix. I've been trying to find a drive-in in the area. Vineland isn't too bad of a drive for a double feature.

It's Transformers 'nuff said, it don't care that its a Bayplosion film. Plus they won't ever be as good as Beast Wars. This is where I prefered seeing the first Bay TF movie in cinemas as it wasn't known as well as it was for ROTF.
But then again, for some reason I was offered a voice acting spot for a fan made Beast Wars movie. Dunno why, but it was legit.

Well by the reviews people on here have given it, it obviously isnt a good movie, so why do you people keep going to see it?

RS 2thou- I did say why I didn't like it, if you read my post after that, you would know.

I actually wrote my post before that you reply you posted, it's just that then my 'net decided to crap out when I clicked on the 'post' butten. So my comment was pre-your reply to i_c_wiener's post.

I always hear that Kind Hearts and Coronets was the best Ealing comedy, but I have to admit I preferred The Ladykillers. Great performances all around; Herbert Lom's especially, which is a pretty big compliment considering his co-stars were Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers.

The American President

My brother, for reasons that escape me, owns this box-set of three Michael Douglas movies. Seeing as how I had absolutely nothing productive to do this morning, I figured I'd check one of them out.

I think I was previously, vaguely aware of the fact that Aaron Sorkin wrote this movie, but when I saw his name in the credits, I found myself drawing the inevitable comparisons to The West Wing (of which I was/am by no means a regular viewer, but I've seen enough of it to get the gist). Great dialogue, great performances (Michael J. Fox and Annette Bening, in particular, kicked all kinds of ass), and pseudo-realistic (though largely idealistic) politics. Also, Martin Sheen was there.

Anyway. I enjoyed the story, but it was ultimately pretty formulaic (especially that speech at the end. I mean, it was well-written and all, but it was kind of an anti-climactic way to deal with the main conflict in the movie: the president's private life vs. the president's personal life). Also, I didn't have a particular need or desire to see Michael Douglas making out with anyone. And Annette Bening's character was kind of, uh, flighty and inconsistent--the typical romantic comedy heroine (though, like I said, she played it perfectly).

Honestly, Michael J. Fox kind of made the movie for me.

Felon
Stephen Dorff is a young guy with a beautiful wife and a nice son, and his business is just taking off now that he's got a loan... oh wait no, someone broke into his house so he busts his skull open with a baseball bat and he's sent to prison for murder, dang. <:(
Inside everything goes from bad to worse, stuck in with the racially divided gangs and corrupt prison guards (Harold Perrineau)
Luckily Val Kilmer, a long serving Aryan Brotherhood member, is there to be a guide of sorts.

Very well put together little film, great acting by the main cast members.
