I watched The Gangs of New York last night. Just sort of went to the movies on a whim and just caught the start of it.
Little did I know it was going to be a 3 hour movie!! It really could have been a bit shorter, but overall it was a pretty decent movie.
Oh, just a small warning, there's alot of blood and slicing of bodies throughout the most part of it. I did have to partly cover my eyes or just go "ohhhh ow damn" a few times because it's quite graphic!

I watched Treasure Planet today. Last summer when I was at MGM studios Florida, I saw some of the production work and models for it, and I thought they looked awesome. And it's just came out in the UK, and it lived up to my expectations. It wasn't perfect, and I found some of it nearer the begining a bit slow and hard to get into, but the pace soon picked up, and it became very interesting and engrossing. There's some really cool characters in it, and it's a spoof or Treasure Island, but in space in the future. There's this really cool character called 'Morph' and it this little pink blob that floats around, but it can morph into anything. There's a robot called ben, and he's lost his mind, literally. Long Jon the evil space pirate was an excellent character, and he was a cyborg with a robotic arm and leg. He's what glued the story together for me, and although he was evil, he had a nice side, and it got brought out near the end and it's quite emotional as well. His voice was cool too. The visuals and animation is amazing, and theres so much detail in some scenes too. It's not my favourate Disney film, but it's definately one of them, and I recomend it. Also it should appeal to quite a lot of people here because it's set in the future in space, and there's robots, and lots of fuuristic technology and stuff smile

I believe Disney are showing a version in IMAX format, which is supposed to be quite good - I'll have to make sure I go and see it.

I"ve seen 3 movies in 4 days. Yeesh, I need a life.

Last night my mum and dad went to see Chicago - So I tagged along because none of my friends are cultured enough to go see it with me!! hehe
Anyway... I thought it was pretty good! One thing about seeing a musical/movie like this is how their dream and thought sequences are always portrayed on stage like the stage show, and then their real life stories are shown like a movie. That was cool.
The only thing I couldn't help thinking was that Renee Zelweger didn't have a great body. It's so skinny and her shoulders are all muscley, it didn't look natural for the 1920s.
Queen Latifah who played "Mama" is a great character, especially her character song early in the movie! Very bosomy!  tongue
The other women prisoners who did a song together left me thinking the quote "Wow! Who knew we would be professional dancers!" from Not Another Teen Movie (I think, I could be wrong. It's from that genre anyway). Seriously... they all snap into this dance sequence and all do some ballerina-esque moves and high kicks, feeling a little out-of-place for the mood of the song. Still left me wishing that I could do that though...  smile

If you haven't heard the story or seen the musical of Chicago before, then the ending still leaves you guessing all the way through the movie. And if that doesn't do it for you, just go see the movie just to see these big name stars crack out a tune and bust a move  big grin

Oh, I am *such* a movie freak.  The most recent movie I saw was "DAREDEVIL", and I have to say... it wasn't that great.

DAREDEVIL was basically about a boy who became blind as a child due to an accident and suddenly he obtained SUPER-HUMAN POWERS!  Then his dad gets killed and he grows up and becomes a blind lawyer who fights crime.  :|  And yes, the movie is as cheesy as the summary.  Plus Ben Affleck a smile like a child molester or something... *shudder*

THE SUBSTITUTE was another movie I saw recently, only this was on HBO.  It was really good!  Anyone who likes *action* movies I'd totally recommend watching it.

THE TWO TOWERS- *Completely* amazing.  The graphics, the plot, just... everything.  And Gollum AKA Smeagol is absolutely *adorable* in a gross, scary kind of way!  ^_^

I have a lot more... I'll post some other time when I'm not exhausted... v__v

<b>My Wife Is An Actress</b>

I've been seeing a lot of French movies lately, and just got this from Netflix. Overall, a pretty good movie, not much substance, but enough plot to push the story along for about an hour and a half. Charlotte Gainsbourg does a good job, considering the lack of real material to work with, and her husband, Yvan Attal, does a really good turn as the jealous, neurotic husband. Anyone interested in a light-hearted, romantic/dark comedy should check it out.

8 Femmes (Women)

A great Francois Ozon film, silly and lighthearted, and at the same time, completely bizarre. I was impressed by the sheer talent of the cast, which reads like a who's who of young and older French actresses (Deneuve, Huppert, Ledoyen, Darrieux, Richard, Ardant, Ledoyen, Sagnier, Beart). It's refreshing to see a movie like this, one that not only combines great acting an interesting story, but also tongue-in-cheek musical numbers. I really feel it should have gotten a little more press outside of France, it truly deserved it.

La Pianiste

Ick. What a disturbing film. Starring Isabelle Huppert, it's basically a story about a middle aged spinster who still lives with her mother, sleeps in the same bed as her mother, and has some serious, serious sexual dysfunctions. The performances are strong, however, but the movie advances at the pace of a snail on sleeping pills. A bit disappointing.

The Brotherhood of the Wolf

My girlfriend's parents sent this to me on DVD for Christmas. A pretty good film, one that doesn't take itself too seriously, but at the same time, does a great job portraying the period in which it's based. If it's possible to have a pretty looking, French kung-fun period movie, I guess this one takes the cake. The story gradually gets more and more convoluted, though, and by the end, I was rolling my eyes. But, the overall package was decent.

Solaris

If you really like psychological sci-fi, you should go see this.  I haven't seen the 2001: movie by Kubrick, but I heard it 's longwinded and boring. If that really is so, Solaris is no different in that aspect.

For the majority however, this movie will be a very boring dissapointment.

Surf Ninjas

OK, this film is really really bad. I saw Leslie Nielsen on the cover and though 'Yeah, this is gonna' be BAD!' but it just turned out to be painful. Some things really annoyed me aswell, such as;

Both the main idiot and his idiot brother are supposed to be Asian, yet one is Hawaiian and one is Indian.

The main characters pre-arranged wife (Who is 15) says something in Chinese (yes, I know that's not a language, etc) to a bunch of guards, and lures them into a bush. The Hawaiian asks her what she said, and she says "I'll tell you on our wedding night". This girl is FIFTEEN! The guards are like 35! Ugh...

When Hawaii fights robot Leslie, he gets water on his robot arm and it goes crazy and starts doing stuff. We then see him grab his dick through his pants, and it zooms into it. It really irked me.

India (who is about 10-12) is talking about driving throughout the ENTIRE MOVIE, which builds up to this really bad scene where he sees some car keys in a jeep, and he holds his finger up to his mouth and looks from side to side. Duh, I wonder whats going to happen here.

This movie is TERRIBLE in a BAD way. See it if your a bad movie fan (if your a Nielsen fan, don't bother) but keep a bucket handy.

Plan 9 From Outer Space

Credited as the worst movie of all time, I was really dissapointed when I saw it. It's actually not that bad. It has some really lame dialouge in parts, but for it's time, it's not nearlly as bad as you would think.

2001; A Space Travesty

A really poor Nielsen movie. I felt like crying after I saw this, just because Leslie made such a crap.

I saw Shanghai Knights this Wednesday. I enjoy many a Jackie Chan flick, and this one's no exception. Chan and Wilson are really great duo, and you can bet it's all about the antics and action. I especially enjoy this movie since it's a kung-fu action movie that takes place in a historical setting, something I haven't seen in a while. This makes for some swashbucking sword action, something I think more movies need. There are also a few good jokes thrown in. Unfortunately Donnie Yen, as one of the villains, is a terrible actor, but he doesn't have too many lines. But I enjoyed it through and through. A solid martial-arts flick.

Old School

I had some pretty low expectations for this movie, but it was a chance to meet up with a friend I haven't seen in a long time.  Fortunately, the film wasn't that bad.  Aside from seeing a lot more of Will Ferrell than most doctors recommend and being constantly annoyed by Luke Wilson's shovel-shaped face it was a fairly funny romp through a thoroughly rehashed theme.  As I alluded, the plot is straight out of School of Hard Knockers...the only thing missing was the bra bomb.

Although I haven't seen it, I don't consider it a movie. I consider it what it is: Footage of people doing dumb-ass stunts too stupid to show on TV. If there is a plot in that, I wasn't aware nor do I really care.  smile

Haha...Oni, you rock for reviewing Surf Ninjas. I saw that on DVD a while back, for like six dollars. I considered buying it, because I love absolute shit like that. Next I want you to review every movie in the "3 Ninjas" series.

I've caught quite a few movies over the past few days. I'll make these quick:

Igby Goes Down

Don't see what all the fuss is about. It wasn't that good. High points include Jeff Goldblum, who was pretty awesome in it. Kieren Culkin sucks, though. Easily the worst Culkin kid. What I wouldn't give to punch him in the face for an hour.

My favorite part of any movie is when a character says the title of the movie. For those of you wondering, someone does actually say "Igby goes down" in Igby Goes Down. It's a good moment. But the rest of the movie didn't strike me as particularly good.

Tadpole

This movie had it all. A sexy main character(seriously, Tadpole seems like a cool guy. If I were his mom, I'd sleep with him), John Ritter, some other funny/cool actors, and filmed with cheap looking cameras, which gives me hope that someday I can make a crappy movie that will miraculously be a big hit at Sundance and win me fame and millions of dollars. The movie also had some good laughs, although some of it got a little too sitcom-ey for my tastes.

The Ring

I saw this movie two days ago, and I barely remember what happened. But I remember thinking "eh". It wasn't scary...but maybe it's because I wasn't paying attention.

8 Mile

Eminem is a world class sellout. I went into this movie expecting to see him beating his mother to death and raping her, like in his cute little songs. Instead, what do I see? Him singing nursery raps to his little sister, and falling in love with a white girl.

And also, Eminem can't act. What was all that crap about him being a good actor? He wasn't awful. I prefer his "flat" bad acting to other peoples' "overemoting" bad acting. But still, I sure as hell wouldn't call it good acting.

The movie sucked, and I hated how all the "friends" just took turns wanting to kill each other. And let's face it, I could out-rap the hell out of Eminem. He's nobody!

Don't know where to put this, but here seems right. They're planning a sequal to The Italian Job. Brief plot below:

Oh yeah, and I forgot to review Shanghai Knights.

I liked it. Owen Wilson is the sexiest man in Hollywood. The plot is pretty stupid, and there are a lot of cheesy scenes, but it's funny enough to keep you watching. I thought the first one was a little bit funnier, though.

Double-posterrific.

Evan's review for Bottle Rocket.

For those of you interested, this is the first film done by director Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Royal Tenebaums). Needless to say, it retains the latter's quirky charms, but it's also really obvious that this is his first film.

To sum up the plot, "Bottle Rocket" is about friendship (aww...). Dignin (Owen Wilson) is a wanna-be small time hood. His best friend is Anthony (Luke Wilson), who just got released from the hospital for 'exhaustion'. Dignin wants to form a gang and become theives, Anthony just wants to fall in love.

The movie never seems to get off the ground. There are a few pretty funny scenes involving Dignin and Anthony robbing a bookstore and later a meat-packing plant, but the rest is pretty flat. Dignin, Anthony, and get-a-way driver Bob flee after their bookstore robbery, hide out at a motel, and Anthony falls in love with the Paraguayan maid.

The love story part seems very odd, almost as if it belongs in a completely different movie. There's a decent idea for a plot here ("loser guys try to become theives" ) that isn't nearly explored enough. Too much "how do friends work?" Which is fine for a movie, but seems way too serious for a film about bumbling burlgars. Aside from the heist scenes, "Bottle Rocket" doesn't seem to ever really get off the ground.

Final Grade: C

You did review it. I 'm sure of it.

I am going to see it. I saw the trailer on the Avalon DVD I watched yesterday.

If you like eXistenZ, the Matrix, and/or anime, you should go see this.
Kazunori Ito, Mamoru Oshii (director), Kenji Kawai (music) and other great names of the anime world worked on this Japanese-Polish production.
The film was entirely in Polish, with some English words here and there. I really liked it.
ninesisters.org has some reviews.

A quick one...

Evan's Review for Wonder Boys

Michael Douglas plays an English professor/novelist at a small upper-class Eastern college (are there any others?). He's in a bit of a slump: his wife is divorcing him, he's having an affair with the chancellor of the school (who is the wife of the head of the English department) and he hasn't published a book for seven years.

All this changes when he meets Tobey "Spiderman" McGuire, a lonely, isolated, and anti-social student. McGuire is also a very talented young writer.

And so the two form a friendship. Professor tries to manage his own life while helping odd student, odd student loves life and tries to bed Katie Holmes, etc.

Not very creative plot-wise (in fact, many plot points are extremely cliche), but "Wonder Boys" makes up for it by being gosh-durn hilarious in parts. Also, the supporting cast holds this movie together. Robert Downey Jr. plays Douglas's gay publisher, while Katie Holmes proves that every WB star gets at least *one* good role. (see James Van Der Beek in "Rules of Attraction" ) I'd recommend it, if you like stories about writers writing about other writers. It's snobby, self-referential, but in a good sense.

Final Grade: B

...Oh, and I'm also looking forward to seeing "Willard." It's a movie in which Crispan Glover commands giant rats to kill...what could be wrong with that?
