I only saw Memento once. Keep meaning to watch it again, since it's been so long I don't remember what happens.

I read the best summary of Fight Club the other day. Gives very little away, and at the same time accurately describes the entire film whilst managing to be total nonsense at the same time. It's only four words long too.

The best part of this was I laughed out loud, so Coldy asked me from his balcony what was so funny, so I read this post out, then he asked if I'd seen Fight Club. He only asked me that same question yesterday or the day before. Men. no no

Paranormal Activity
Now all the sounds coming from the units surrounding this one sound like demon footsteps.

I'm not sure what I thought about this, since half the things I heard about it were "that wasn't scary at all" and the other half were "that was the scariest thing ever!" I guess towards the end it was more heart-racing, and the concept of it and the fact that nothing was really resolved sort of leaves you going shifty

How To Train Your Dragon
I want a dragon. But the dragon did remind me of my cat. The eyes and the way it looked like it was going to pounce on the kid at the beginning, that's how my cat used to act when she was younger. I guess they would have animated it with other animals in mind anyway. Derr. It also kept you entertained without getting too kiddy-ish, and didn't go over the top with emotional drama. Good stuff.

Finally watched Toy Story 3 and it was probably the best movie I've seen all year

Also one of my favorite scary movies was on, Jeepers Creepers.  I don't know why I like it so much

Due Date

Robert Downey Jr. just has very, very, very bad luck. This movie has the epitome of those "how could this get any worse?" moments. But it's good, not as funny as the Hangover though.

Did they put the funniest moments from the film in the TV ads?  I hate it when they do that.

For pure on-the-edge of your seat scariness, it's always been one of my favorites.

I watched Electroma

It was really weird... I like Interstellar 5555 much more, even though neither have any dialogue, Interstellar 5555 had a good story, Electroma, not so much. And what up with the random vagina shot... Anyway, I think I should have perhaps been on lots and lots of drugs when I was watching it. Next time...

Thanks to lovefilm been able to get through quite a few more films than I rpreviously had. As such here are some quick reviews

The Imaginarium of Dr Parnasis

A decent enough Gilligam film and Heath Ledgers final performance was good to watch.  Tom Waits is just perfect in his role as the devil. Perhaps not a movie for everybody but I feel it was a decent watch.

B

Frost/Nixon

Both Frank Langella and Michael Sheen play their title roles brilliantly. While I am sure the events are slightly exagerated but it does make for a compeling film.

A

Up

So sad at the begining but carries into another great Pixar film. Not sure I have to say much more, great film. Hell follow that for the next film as well.

A+

Wall-E

Again another grat pixar film, perhaps a little draggy in places but still enjoyable.

A

Carlito's way

Ok not sure Al Pachino works as a Puerto Rican but otherwise the film is very enjoyable and was nice to see a gangster character who really wanted to change and get out.

A-

X-men origins: Wolverine

Ok this one annoyed me. Wolverine Origin in the comics was great as it answered some questions but left other ambigious, the film however feels it has to spell everything out for the audience.

And what they hell did they do to Deadpool, I do believe Ryan Renolds could of done the character justice if they made him more like his comic conter part.

Fun in parts but mostly diappointing.

D

Shutter Island

Ok I may have called the twist very eairly on but it was still a very entertaining film.

A-

Gattaca

Really enjoyed this one. Ethan Hawk is great in it and it spins a decent tale on what could happen if we are allow people to choose the genetics of thier offspring and what happens to those who were born more naturally. If you enjoy sci fi they I highly receomnd this film.

A+

The prestige

Ok Batman VS Wolverine this is not but Jackman and Bale are both extremly watchable in this film. Throw is Christopher Nolans non liner narative story telling and David Bowie and you have a enjoable film.

A

Sex and Drugs and rock & roll

The a brief moemnts in this film were I forgot that it was Andy Serkis playing Ian Dury and not Ian Dury himself. Definitly one of the more interesting biopics out there.

A-

Beowulf

Jsut a tip to the makers of these sort of films, just because you can make the CGI close to photo realistic it does not mean you can forget all the other rules of film making.

While the writing feels solid the direction is just slightly odd. If you want to see a CGI Angelina Jolie nearly naked go for this otherwise go for Gia and see the real thing.

Slash

What the hell was that? The movie isn't that much scary nor it was a so bad it was good movie. The band cast in this movie look like the teenagers in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Couldn't make it pass 30 mins and I've seen MST3K movies better than this!

Demolition Man (1993)

Demolition Man is a great action/sci-fi movie made before the days of CGI starring Sylvester Stallone; one of the great action stars of the time and Wesley Snipes who in this film was just as good, it also features Sandra Bullock before she specialised in romantic comedies. Sly Stallone plays Detective John Spartan a Los Angeles cop who has been hunting criminal Simon Phoenix but when he finally captures Phoenix he finds himself in jail too as it is believed his excessive force led to the death of several civilian hostages. Spartan and Phoenix aren't sent to an ordinary prison; they are sent to a cryogenic prison where they are frozen for the duration of their sentences. During a parole hearing in 2032 Phoenix escapes and murders several people. By now Los Angeles no longer exists, it has been replaced by the apparently Utopian San Angeles where serious crime is unknown. The police have no idea how to deal with him so they thaw out Spartan to catch him. What follows is action packed as Spartan and his new partner Lenina Huxley, played by Sandra Bullock, search for Phoenix and learn how he managed to escape from prison.

If you like action films this is a lot of fun; it might not be as violent as a lot of action films but it makes up for that with some great humour; not just the one-liners expected of the genre but the way the people in the future don't understand Spartan and the way he reacts to the changes… he certainly isn't a fan of non-contact sex! The leading actors all put in solid performances and Nigel Hawthorne is good as the slightly sinister administrator of San Angeles, Dr. Raymond Cocteau. There is plenty of great action including shootouts, car chases and an exciting fight in the cryo-prison at the end.

9/10

TWEEK!

I liked Demolition Man as well.  Loved the social commentary (all restaurants in the future are Taco Bell, "It was the only restaurant chain to survive the franchise wars", etc).  Very enjoyable film.

It's been a while since I did any
One-Sentence Movie Reviews!

Red
Bruce Willis is... Bruce Willis in... Bruce Willis: The Movie.

Buried
News of a theatrical film about a man buried in box failed to fulfil my feverish expectations about the long-awaited mainstream acceptance of porn.

Hard Candy
Not nearly as gripping or controversial as it says on the box.

Logan's Run
A long, ponderous and rather boring failure to live up to cultish expectations garnished with an assortment of hilarious models.

Get Him to the Greek
A truly harrowing drama that leaves the audience shaken and contemplative long after the credits roll.

Harry Brown
Needed more violence.

The Spirit

If you saw the Frank Miller comic based movie Sin City, you saw how the striking visual style enhanced the story.  Now, use the same visual style, but put in a rambling disjointed story that was boring as hell, and that's what you've got here.  A perfect example of how style doesn't make up for a lack of substance.

Harry ¤ and ¤ Deathly ¤

I suspect that I won't really know how I feel about this one till I get to see the second half in another years time but at present I'll say that I thought it was pretty good; not great, but better than I feared it would be.

While I'm pleased that they kept as many scenes from the book as they could, a lot of them feel rather truncated and somewhat unsatisfying. In particular the silver doe scene, and the events which follow from it, seemed rather muted.

I'd be interested to see how comprehensible this film is to someone who hasn't read the books and/or seen the preceding movies.

Rating: (a tentative) B+

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.

Yeah, had nothing better to do today.

Harry Potty Number Seven: The Finale - Part One

Surprisingly good.

The director did a better job at this one then the last two and I can defiantly see why thee decided to go with 2 parts to this one. It needs it. But its also a great building block for a climax.

I can't say where this film finishes in regards to the book as I have not read them in a few years and have no real interest in re-reading them, but as a guess I would say they managed about two thirds of the book.

The acting is far better then I have previously seen from all the cast, even including Ralph Fiennes whom I have never really cared for. Rupert Grint gave perhaps his best performance as yet but this may also be due to the fact that his character was not written to be so painfully pathetic this time and seems to be able to hold his own against the other two main characters.

In regards to the book to movie comparison I would say this has done a very good job at being true to the book and as usual a lot has been taken out for the sake of time. I felt that little of the movie had been changed from the book to fit this together, although there are some areas where they decided they needed some comedy to lighten the mood. This wasn't really necessary and I felt this actually took people out of the film and brought them back to sitting in a theater.

I'm giving this one 7.8 by its self.
In a comparison to the other movies its a 9
