i agree with drthunder the movie was a dissappointment and that rave scene/sex scene nearly had me leaving i still cant work out the point of that and i agree ALL the scenes from zion should have been cut.
As for charlies angels 2 how can you make a whole movie with no plot as far as i can tell they decided to think up as many scenes as they could to have the angels and demi in skimpy outfits filmed it and then decided to try and piece together a story line.

Charlies Angels was fun, who cares about a plot, it's a movie that you are meant to have with. Not to be taken seriosly at all.

I went to see it because i'm on my school holidays at the moment, so i'm pretty bored. To relieve that bordem i go to see a movie. That's pretty much the reason i saw it..... and enjoyed it.

The League of Extrodinary Gentlemen

Once again, I didn't know what to expect because I haven't read the book or comic or whatever it is, I went into the theater not knowing anything about LXG but caught on pretty fast, but I think the fact that all the characters names are from other books and that they are names you just know helped. I thought the scenes with the Nautalus were excellent, that is one cool ship. I liked Skinner and everyone's reaction to him when the found out he was around them. I think some of the fighting scenes could have been better, some looked like they were trying to not really hit their enemy. But I think the best part had to be the part that had nothing to do with the plot of the movie. It the 20th Century Fox sign when the moves starts. It had me laughing my head off (I just thought it was funny that they would actually do that to their own coporate logo). And we had another backwards and upside down trailer. Anyway, back to the movie, I didn't know what to expect and what I saw was great. I though Sean Connery was great and as I said before I liked Skinner and the Nutalus. It's definatly good, and it should be a summer blockbuster.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl
Okay, I may be biased because I find Johnny Depp to be the hottest of the hot, but this was an amazing film.  Wonderful cinematography, suspenseful score, eye-bulging special effects and engaging characters make this movie one of the best I've seen.  Instantly makes it into my top 6 favorite movies.  The story begins easily enough: Pirates raid a British town and kidnap the governor's daughter, Elizabeth, because she posesses the last piece of Aztec Gold which transformed them into the undead.  In order to live again, all the gold must be laid together and a blood sacrifice given.  The girl's childhood friend Will sets out to find her, along with pirate Jack Sparrow.  The beginning of the film is a bit slow, but quickly picks up.  Shots of the pirates in moonlight, especially an undersea scene, are breath-taking.  The acting is quite good as well, though Depp's incarnation of Keith Richards and Pepe LePew easily steals the show.  Orlando Bloom is much better here than in LOTR and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbossa is engaging.  Kiera Knightley's performance is impressive, but her character was annoying at a few points.  The action sequences are very entertaining, especially the movie's climax.  I actually gasped quite loudly twice, fearing for what Jack Sparrow had coming to him, but it may be because I love Depp so much.  love  Anyway, it's an absolutely wonderful film all around.  I'm already pining to go see it again.  big grin

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Well, I don't know why all the critics hated this movie. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Sure, there were issues... like the lighting. Sometimes the murky lighting made it hard to tell what was going on. Then again, that might've been because I saw it in my town's really crappy theater.

But the acting was pretty good, especially Connery, Townshend, and Wilson.

Pirates of the Carribean
The Curse of the Black Peral


All I can say is wow. I'm glad I was able to see it considering it was a Friday afternoon, school's out and it was a Pass Restricted movie. I though Johnny Depp was amazing. I like all the parts where the pirates became skeletons whenever they steped into the moonlight, I thought the graphics were great and the movie kept me entertained throught the whole movie, which is something a lot of those big summer box office hits don't do.

Donnie Darko
Before i saw this movie i was aware of the cult like status the film had taken and i also knew some of the aspects of the film so i was very curious.I have to say i very much enjoyed the film and thought it was quite a unique experience, the acting, directing and script are all very well done and it also has a great soundtrack.By not trying to answer or explain too much the film sticks in your head and you'll be talking about it long after.Though the film isn't perfect it's better than 99% of films made these days.

LXG
I agree with Kryten, I can't see why the critics are being so harsh on it (except for the guy from the Toronto Star, he's obviously very upset it's not exactly like the comics and needs to lie down for a bit).  Still, I can't get 100% behind it myself.  I have read and loved the comics, but I knew going in this was gonna be very different, so was able to let go and enjoy it as a movie.  And as a movie, I gotta say, it's good but not great.  The Kung Fu is really damn anachronistic, as is one character's reference to "nailing" another (as long as I don't say who or the context, it's not a spolier, right?), and I found both distracting because of it.  I'd give it 2 1/2 stars out of 4, but on a good day you could convince me to raise it to 3.

I thought Pirates was really good as well--but I think Johnny Depp MADE that movie. Anyone else as Sparrow and it would have been like a C- at best. He should have some makeup and a pirate costume slapped on him every day. Mmm.

Johnny Depp....  love

He was the best part of that movie!  He's also said he would sign up for a sequel in a heartbeat, and for eager fans like me, that could be soon.  Cinescape reported today that work has begun on a sequel to POTC, with director Gore Verbinski(The Ring, POTC), Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley, Orlando Bloom and the original writers to sign soon.  I, for one, couldn't be more excited!!!  big grin

I'm also planning to see the film again this weekend, so we shall see if it is better the second time.  smile

The Hulk

Excellent, exactly what I expected. A good translation not inspirationals but damn enjoyable. i had to stop myself jumping from my seat when he starting smashing things, thats what I wanted to see and I wasn't dissappointed. It also had some vaguely emotional crap thrown in but who cares about that...

Terminator 3
Terminator 3 is'nt just a rehash of the first two but rather an episode in a possibly long running series. It implements a different style accompanied by a different director which is an healthy change to the series. The new model terminator the T-X is smarter, faster and stronger but is'nt as frightening as the male terminator in T2. Famke Janssen (X-men) was originally to play the T-X but turned it down because it clashed with her X2 filming. I personally think she would've been the better T-X. Arnold is back and as good as he was in the previous installments. Nick Stahl who plays John Conner does a good job, so does Clair Danes who plays Cathrine Bruster. The special effects were brilliant but i have to say i liked the look of the liquid terminator in T2 more. The car chase through the steets of LA surpasses even the Matrix Reloaded in brilliance. The action sequences on a whole are well planned and memorable. The movie is supposedly the second most expensive movie ever made and it shows. Highly enjoyable addition to the series as it delves deeper into the rise of the machines. The ending may surprise viewers as it was very risky.

It was an okay film, it really made me laugh in places. It started to go down a bit towards the end, but yet I was laughing out loud at the 'sad' scenes. I also noticed that the final scene was filmed where Back To The Future was   smile I'll give it a B+  big grin

Oh! Oh! I was! What film are you talking about again?

I just like to say I just saw Gremlins for the first time in about two years and it's still great. Dark, funny and with great music (esp. for the eighties) and still better then everything I've watched recently. If you haven't seen this film, shame on you all!

Correction: In previous posts, Gremlins 2 was erroneously stated as being "better" than Gremlins 1. We here at PEEL would like to make it clear that Gremlins 1 is by far the better film. We apologize for the mistake.

I went to see Phone Booth tonight, and that movie was intense. Truly a Hitchcook-inspired psychological thriller that nailed me to my seat. The acting was brilliant, especially Colin Farrell was spectacular (thank god Jim Carrey or Will Smith didn't get to play the main character). Also, Kiefer Sutherland as the psycho on the other end of the line was great, even though you can only hear him. How creepy can a voice get anyways?
With an 'even equally' brilliant script, packed with great sounds/music and camera work, I have no choice but to give Phone Booth a solid A, even though I think Joel Schumacher and his team could have come up with a better ending.

I actually enjoyed this film a lot. I have read the novels on most of the characters, and it was pretty cool to see them on the silver screen interacting. The action was meh, and I thought M (Or the Phantom, as we like to call him) was pretty...whats the word...gay? But the new technologies and everyone's reaction to it was pretty cool. I was suprised by the technology myself at some times. The lighting could have been better, but I guess it was intended to add to the "effect". I enjoyed it, and I give it a B+.

Sinbad

Yeah, I had to see it just because of the Looney Toons back in Action trailer. I'm telling the truth. Anyway, Sinbad was actually pretty good. There were parts that looked like traditional 2D animtaion and  parts that looked 3D and then there were 2D and 3D together, well they didn't look that great. Dreamworks needs to stick to either 2D or 3D at the moment. I think the movie would have been better if they hadn't had dramatic actor doing the voice. Don't get me wrong, Brad Pitt and Catherine Zeta-Jones are good. I though Michelle Pfiffer was great, but I think the movie would have been better if comedic actors had done the voices. Look at Finding Nemo. Anyway Sinbad is a cute movie, but there are a lot of other movies I would recomend over it.

And I now leave, waiting for Seabiscuit  big grin or Spy Kids 3D (hey, it's the first 3D movie to come to our theater), but I'll most likely be caught in a Tomb Raider screening   frown

I actually want to see Tomb Raider.  I really liked the first one for it's kitsch and non-sensical plot, so I'm hoping this new film will feature those same elements.  I'm also intrigued by the concept of Pandora's box.  My best friend, my sister and I are planning to see it, along with Spy Kids 3-D next weekend. 
I'm on a Johnny Depp high right now, having just come back from seeing Pirates of the Caribbean for the third time (My best friend and I want to see it again...and again...  big grin ), and I rented Sleepy Hollow and Chocolat on the way home.  My weekend is going to be Johnny-rific.  big grin

Two fairly old films for the review 9not really old just about a year I could reveiw soe old ones but I'm not going to)

Jason X

OMFG WTF pretty much sums up this film. The acting was awful, the action terrible and well I expected the plot to suck.
They way I see it there are alot better horror films out there and if I needed a movie with breasts I would rent an 18 bah I say bah

I'm not giving this film a ranking THIS FILM SUCKS

Minority report

Any film would look good in compartison to the Jason X but I did like this film. It looked cool but I did have a slight problem with the over use of fillters (I forgave this beliving it vas for themematics in the film)
I'm not a fan of Tom Cruise but I could withstand him in this film. I also do not like Stephen Speilbergs movies but this work well (up until the end which I thought was not to good I would of stopped the movie earlier, Damn Americans always wanting closure in their films)
I did feel the movie could of delt with certain aspects a little better but meh.
I did think the moive would have benifited from more Sick stick action. AAAAaaaah well.

All in all I'll give int a B good not great

Seabiscuit

My manager screened it, just for me. I was the only one in the theater. Anyway, this is the movie I've been waiting for for years. It was amazing. (This is coming from someone who was a horse freak when she was a kid.) The racing scenes were wonderful, although some shots from the helmet cameras were kind of blurry. The views they used were fantastic. And the acting was really good. I loved Chris Cooper as Tom Smith. I didn't really like Tobey Maguire with red hair, but that's who his character got his name. I'm glad they didn't show Red flipping although it got pretty close. For me this movie is a 10 ou tof 10.

Spy Kids 3D Game Over

It doesn't look very good from what I've seen of it. When I was checking the theaters today the 3D just didn't look all that good, but then again I wasn't sitting down in a seat in the middle of the theater I was walking along the wall toward the screen. It's not the type of 3D that jump out and grabs at you or that you feel like you can touch (actually there were a few parts that did this). It's the 3D that makes it look more realistic like Ghosts of the Abyss. Anyway, I'm still planning on seeing it and getting another pair of 3D glasses (I found 2 today) and then I'll actually review it.

Hulk
Ang Lee is the director of the highly acclaimed Chinese film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Since then he has been realised as one of the best directors in the martial arts genre. Taking on a big Hollywood movie such as this, which sees a giant green monster causing havoc through the desert is very different to a martial arts movie. So it would'nt be surprising if he took the beloved series in the wrong direction, which alot of fans would say he did. But did the transition be for the best. I'm not a fan of the comic..... as a matter of fact, i still haven't read any of the series. But i still think Ang Lee has done a brilliant job to create a tale that suits the big screen.

The first hour of this 138 minute movie gives some background to the young Bruce Banner played by Eric Bana. His father a scientist who studyies genetics can be summed up in a few words a deranged lunatic. Nick Nolte plays his character well, considering that he already is a deranged lunatic in real life. His father is performing regeneration experiments and uses himself as a guinea pig. The results of the gene therapy are passed on to his son Bruce. When Bruce is older and working in a lab, he is exposed to gamma radiation, it triggers a mutation inside of him which has been lying dormant for some time. From then on, whenever he gets angry, the big green guy emerges from inside of him. Causing havoc. Bruce works in a lab with his former girlfriend Betty played by Jennifer Connely. They study the effects of gamma radiation together. Betty grows increasingly worried when she sees changes in Bruce after the accident.

The Hulk isn't like other comic book movies, for once a comic book adaptation has been taken seriously. At first glance you'd think that it would be crazy to take a big green giant seriously but after watching what Ang Lee has created, you will believe there was no other direction for it to be taken. The acting is outstanding, especiallly Jennifer Connelly who is starring in her second comic book movie (first one was the rocketeer). The special effects have been of high controversy but it's safe to say that they have done a good job. The trailers don't do the effects justice. Fred Elmes does a brilliant job with the cinematography, which is presented in a split screen variation like a comic book. Danny Elfman is getting the reputation as the comic book movie composer and yet again does an enchanting job. The action is pleasing throughout the movie, the Hulk does a wonderful job of demolition. Overall a highly enjoyable piece of work with an enjoyable plot and interesting characters.
