New movie thread!

Shutter Island

I liked the story and everything but not Di Crappyo. Worse actor ever!

Power Rangers: The Movie

So I gave in to temptation and downloaded this movie of mine, which I loved as a kid, and to be honest, I'm going to review it because I still love it. The one with Ivan Ooze, yeah, not any other ones. The original movie...

The acting is bad, the noises they make when they're jumping around are bad, the guys are kinda cute, the girls are annoying...

The costumes and general story is kinda bad.

But I still fucking love this movie. The whole thing is bad, but that just makes it good for me.

As I remember, one of the power rangers was arrested for doing crack & killing someone, or something like that.

Shhhh, it's fine. I don't know about it, and ignorance is bliss.

Also, I checked it out, and it was one of the extras from an episode in the series.

It was Skylar Deleon (who starred in the TV series), and he & his wife were convicted of murdering a couple over a boat:  http://club.myce.com/f94/power-ranger-arrested-murder-146406/

You might be thinking of the guy who played the black ranger, who was arrested for dui:  http://www.tmz.com/category/dui/8/

The Nightmare Before Christmas

I haven't seen this in years and I've been listening to the soundtrack and I missed it. I've always been fascinated with stop-motion animation. So after watching the movie, I watched the commentaries as well. It was amazing to hear how they created that movie. Like how they decided to make use of the shadows to give a more dramatic impact. Camera movements, character designs and their strong poses and well as every movement is a new shot. Unlike in animation, stop-motion does not recycle their walk cycles.

Hmpf, ignore my reviews will you?

Inception

To reiterate, this movie is amazing. There are few movies where I just sit and watch and take it in, but this is seriously one movie where you can't look away for one second. The concept was original and explained in a way that you had to be paying attention to understand, otherwise it would be rather confusing. One of the best movies to ever fuck with my head, I loved it. The audience's reaction to the last scene was priceless, everyone in the theater made some motion of "Aw no!" when the credits came up. I was so blown away. And I loved to see Cillian Murphy and the guy from Drag Me to Hell in this, everyone in the cast was exceptional. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was...incredibly badass, he rocked the shit out of gravity.

check out my previous reviews

http://www.peelified.com/Futurama-Forum-5/Topic-18570-680-Ebert_Gave_This_Movie_Rev.html


Superman/Batman Public Enemies

This film was entertaining.  I liked the fact that Tim Daly, Clancy Brown and Kevin Conroy all came back voiced their respected DC animated characters.  Luther as president is epic and sets up a good story.  I only gripe that once the film becomes The Fugitive, it's pretty straight forward and lacks development with the characters, until there's a pause between each chase.  They battle between Batman/Superman and an army of ice themed villains was awesome, but makes you wonder how all those villains met up and planned the attack so quickly after the hunt for our heroes starts.  I thought the whole sequence about going to Japan felt forced, like the writers had no idea for a climax and just said "hey let's send them to Japan and met a Japanese Toyman".  It was still entertaining and not as bad as it sounds.  I was a little weirded out about Luther kissing Amanda Waller just like that and imply that he liked her.  Has that ever happened in the comics?  I understand if it was Lois Lane, but Amanda Waller?...awkward. To sum it up, it was an enjoyable film and it's just great hearing Conroy as Batman.

B+

Inception
I went with my two best buds to see this today, for once we were all available to do something together! It was fairly fantastic, although we did all agree afterwards that there were parts where we felt Leo was playing practically the same character he played in Shutter Island, and even parts of the story made us question whether things would unfold in the same way Shutter Island unfolded.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Well, pretty sure I had half a crush on him when he was on 3rd Rock From The Sun, and now he looks less like a girl and can defy gravity. Yes please. That whole thing..and then the next thing..and then the stuff. That was fun. I want to be able to enter this dream world!


It kept me entertained for 2 and a half hours, and I was busting to pee for the last hour (damn you, frozen coke!) but I wasn't going anywhere. So I'ma give it something like 9/10.

Splice

...where do I begin? How about with saying this is one FUCKED UP movie. Like, really fucked up. Just when you think it can't get more fucked up, it does.
Pretty much all you need to know about what I mean:

It has a really good premise and good acting, interesting character development and plot twists, but then near the end the whole thing kinda takes a shit all over itself and the end itself is pretty lame.

Bee Movie: an on-the-go review

Oops, I forgot to turn the telly on until about 10 minutes into it. Well, from what I have gathered with my mighty deductive powers, Jerry Seinfeld as a bee has just graduated school or college and now doesn't want to follow in his dad's footsteps to be a honey stirrer. So he joins the team of bees who go out to look for pollen instead. He gets split up from the group and ends up being saved from Squishville by Renee Zellweger's character and now he has a crush on her, and she knows he can talk because he thanked her for not letting her boyfriend kill him.

HAH - Ray Liotta brand honey.

Okay...the bee has a camera to take pictures of humans stealing their honey. Now he's suing humans. Beejesus! Haw, he asked Bee Larry King "how old are you?" Good question. Is he still alive?

"Why is yoghurt night so difficult?!" I'm quite sure that's Patrick Warburton. He's Renee's boyfriend. Now they're in court. That's John Goodman. He sounds just like Santa. Heh, Ray Liotta went insane. What a champ.

Haaa, Broderick bee ends up in a human sized hospital bed. I miss Simba frown

"How about a suicide pact?"
"How's that work?"
"I'll sting you, and you step on me."
"That just kills you twice."
"Oh.."

Yeah. And now the bees are happy to be working. Basically it's a big social commentary on the fact that we are all drones going through life doing mindless repetitive tasks until eventually we die. Just like real life. Well, that's just my interpretation. It also had a whole ecological undertone, but who cares about that?!

Hmmm...it had some semi-decent laughable moments, but I was kind of creeped out by the bee-human romantic relationship. I am tempted to give this a Let's Bee Minus Friends rating.

Twas great. The first 3rd felt like a non stop montage, but they had a lot of ground to cover, so it's all good.


Looked great, sounded great, was great.

Lots out of lots

Edit: goddamnit, i can never remember if it's spoiler or spoilers for the tags. Somebody make it so it's both.

Inception

After all the great reviews on PEEL (and on imdb), I went out of my way and out of my country to see it early and in English today. So, my hopes for a good movie where pretty high. And that it was. I think I'm only ever going to watch movies with
or failing that, time travel, in them anymore. Just makes for more thinking and feels like more things are going on.

9/10

On a similar note:

The Time Traveler's Wife

If you are a bit like me and don't like books but do like time travel and would like to see it outside the typical scifi scenario for once, I think that's a movie to see. If you are more like Kelly, read the book.

9/10

The Netherlands

OK, so they have movies in English and I can live with the subtitles, but come on, intermissions? This isn't the 60s anymore... Then again, Maastricht was a nice daytrip and we saw a marching band going to a wedding.

6/10 (8/10 - 2/10 for the intermission)
