Transformers - 2/10

Only went to this because my bf wanted to see it and it was his turn to pick.
I wasn't expecting much but even by summer blockbuster standards it really was exceptionally stupid.

About an hour of it was totally pointless. What was the point of Devestator? 

Since when could Decepticons transform into humans?

How often was Shia Le Bouef on the verge of horrible death before being saved at the last minute?

Don't even get me started on Robot heaven. 

How many pointless shots, promo shots were there for the US army?

The dodgy political message (Obama is a coward) and the twins are cringe worthy too.

I was hoping The Dark Knight would make Hollywood realise it's possible to still make a fortune with decent well-scripted blockbusters.

Transformers was probably the dumbest film ever made.

Anyway I'm already planning my revenge on my bf by making him goto My Sisters Keeper laff

I watched The Day The Earth Stood Still remake tonight.

It was...pretty dumb. I could go into a lot of detail why, but I'll just say it's dumb.

I can hear JoshTheater now saying "If you really want bad, see Turkish Star Wars. I thought Manos was bad..."

And the original was great, Frisco! The remake, um, yeah, about that...

Primal Fear (1996)

Just saw this movie for the first time and loved it!  Even though the ending is, by todays standards, quite predictable, but I was so involved I didn't see it coming.  I really am not a huge fan of Richard Gere, but his potrayal of the cocky defense attorney (I saw similarities to Denzel Washington's character in Philadelphia)

Francis McDormand was not the best character, and wasnt more of a stretch from a serious disposition, only showing little surprise.

The best was Edward Norton, (who I have a slight crush on haha) and his portrayal of Aaron's character had me on edge the whole movie, and rooting for him. 

It may be full of various cliches, such as the bitchy feminist who just plays into  everyone's hands and gets her just desserts in the end, but I still found it to be suspenseful and still more than worth the watch!

Just excited about it so I thought I would out my 2 cents in!

Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince

I was satisfied with the movie. I'm not gonna nitpick all the things that the movie didn't have or did have, because at least it kept the story going for 2 hours:45 minutes. It got me all excited to see the next movie. I should probably read the book too but it's not one of my main priorities.

B+

The best part was going to iHop after and just sitting in a big group talking about how the movie was. And something about bears that made me laugh so hard I started crying. Fun fun times.

Is it really that long? I've seen it twice and I hadn't realised that it was even 2 hours long, let alone 2:45!

I too am more hopeful about the remaining two movies after having seen this one and I intend to re-read the entire series but I'll need to be finished by November so that I have enough time to have forgotten the details of the book by the time the movie rolls around.

Reviews don't usually follow this format, but I think my obnoxious running commentary for American Beauty speaks for itself:

<Mr0le> Holy cow
<Mr0le> That last line sounded like a threat.
<Mr0le> I was just threatened by

Any movie that inspires me to sleep with my light on at least deserves a B! smile

Fine, the point was that I was so into the movie that I didn't realize how late it was when we all got out. It was fun and enjoyable. It wasn't like Transformers 2 where I kept thinking "Oh please be over please be over I hate this movie please be over."

the original was good. then they made the new one star keanu reeves and replaced the anti-war message with an environmental one, and replaced gort with a swarm of bugs. oh and also the ending was intensely stupid.

The only thing I remember from Crash is the burning car rescue scene. There is another Crash about people getting off from car crashes or something. I think that is more up your alley.

"After getting into a serious car accident, a TV director discovers an underground sub-culture of scarred, omnisexual car-crash victims who use car accidents and the raw sexual energy they produce to try to rejuvenate his sex life with his wife."

The Aristocrats

30-odd of the worlds best comedians tell the world most disgusting joke over and over again...

...and it's freakin hilarious.

A great look on how it's not the material but the teller which lends the majority contribution to the craft of stand-up comedy, and it's also a look on how far a comedian will go for laughs...

Hah. Talking penis.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
BWAHAHAHA little children. Little Harry just makes me think of that movie The Pagemaster. I never actually saw it but I remember the ads for it and Culkin had those glasses on...yeah.

Harry Potter and...I forget
I really don't remember what happened in this one.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban or however it is spelt
This is the only HP movie I'd already seen. And I had forgotten most of it.

Harry Potter and..the Goblet of Fire?
That dude out of Twilight just makes me think of Twilight now and that sucks for him. He's actually attractive when he's not being a vampire. But still, Twilight. hmpf

Harry Potter and the other thing he does
I only just watched this one, a week after watching the others in one day. Harry has grown up a lot. Ron still looks cute but sounds older. And his brothers are starting to look like different people rather than identical twins. I forget what happened in this...oh that old lady ran the school and I realised what an odd name Hogwarts was all of a sudden when Hermione said it at some point in the film. Why would you name your school after growths on a hog's skin? But I'm sure everybody figured that out long ago. I don't understand the big fuss about magic if you're going to get these evil people who use it for wrong doing. We have enough people in our society wrong doing without them having magic powers. Smeh.
This movie made me feel for the characters which meant I must have been paying attention somewhat to the previous 4 films.
Alan Rickman's voice is awesome.

The Producers (2005)
I was told this movie was fantastic but it wasn't the greatest movie I've ever seen. Give me Matthew Broderick as a lion any day.

The fuck was that?
Seriously.
"WAAARRRRRR..oh now I'm dead and I miss my wife frown I didn't think that through properly."

More like Matthew Broderick as a clever teenager in the 80's. WarGames and Ferris Bueller ftw!

The 'other thing' is named after his habit requesting Phoenix-based dishes in restaurants.

JFK

Definitely had to set aside half of my day to watch this 3 1/2 hour long movie, but I would say it was well worth it. 

While the conspiracy is very complicated and names are being thrown out left and right, it is hard not to be hooked on every word, and every cut. 

Oliver Stone not only worked with a brilliant script, including two tremendous monologues, but the cinematography was awesome.

Now, I did take a break about halfway through, i needed too.  But, I am now very interested in finding out the truths to this film, as well as in the JFK assassination.

I would recommend this film to anyone, truly a classic, but I cannot hate a movie that both Gary Oldman and Joe Pesci are in, they, are amazing!

Solid A

They do die, but then they're reborn from their own ashes.

And they aren't made of fire.  If they were, they'd be elementals, not magical beasts.

Moon

Has anyone else run across this movie? I know it is in limited release. According to the website, it was an "official entry" into 3 different film festivals so it must be good!
Anyway, I mostly enjoyed it- strong acting from Sam Rockwell and a rather interesting story. I felt disappointed when I realized it was a sci-fi thriller more than a psychological one (I assumed from everything I knew that it was going to be the latter, and I believe it would have been more interesting to me presented in that way...), but on the whole it delivered, so I give it a B err..I mean an 8/10.
Also, is anyone else interested in the AMC cable serial "Mad Men"? I was thinking of starting a thread to discuss it.
