I saw a good movie tonight!  It was called Angel Eyes starring Jennifer Lopez.  Another good movie was Thinner by Steven King.

I saw The Ring a while back, and although it was stupid and the plot didn't all come together, it scared the living hell out of me.  One being because I'm a girl, and two being because I'm a wussy girl.  ..Especially when it comes to horror movies involving the TV!  It was just really creepy.  *Shudder*

The plot didn't all come together?
Well I did see The Ring and I disagree.

It's not the best screenplay ever but there's no holes in it.

... Whatever
Did you see Nightmare City? On of the supidest horror movies ever. Its soooooo funny.

THE RING was okay!  It was scary!

Fromage, the reason it didn't all come together is... why a damn video tape?  It didn't make sense at all.  I just don't see where that comes into play.  Too much is unexplained, perhaps left open for a sequel.

I'll put a review of everything I think about it sometime.

The Ring 2 & 3 were bollocks. Hope Miramax don't acquire the rights for the American remake.
Also, that's maybe because I've been desensitized from one too many horror flicks.  tongue

The  things wrong with "The Crocodile Hunter" was that...

1. Made NO sense
2. REALLY BAD ENDING
3. EVERYTHING!

DO NOT BUY/RENT, OR EVEN DARE TO LOOK AT 2 SECONDS OF THIS FILM!
Sorry, got a little mad there.
Also...
Austin Powers 3 was a really, really, really funny movie that I will not forget. GO BUY/RENT, OR SEE IT AT YOUR FRIEND'S HOUSE!

Monsters, Inc. is also a great movie that's not POORLY-WRITTEN JUNK. It has an all-star cast and the timing's great. Watch it on Starz! or buy it on DVD or video... just see it.
DID YOU KNOW: it's the 2nd to last film which had  by the late and great James Coburn, the last being... snow dogs...?  mad

I saw 'Jackass the Movie' last night  smile

So here i go..
Jackass the Movie

Right first off, if you're a Jackass fan, you'll love it! Plain and simple. Some of the stunts and things that they do are crazy! They're just so insane! Theres lots of laugh out loud moments, and plenty of moments that make you cringe too.
I dont like the beginning so much and the ending is pretty crummy too but then again it is just a longer version of the show and its not like a proper film. They've really gone all out to perform stunts that they'd never ever be able to get away with showing on MTV. If you're just looking for a laugh then I recommend seeing it. If you're the type who simply doesn't find people hurting themselves or doing stupid stuff funny, then steer well clear  wink

Evan's list of films soon to be reviewed -- when the moment strikes me. I saw most of these over spring break. Here's a rough grade for each one, though

Old School. Will Ferral, Vince Vaughn, and Luke Wilson start a fraternity and manage to rip off every other college movie in existance. Funny if you think throwing up on yourself is funny. F

The Sweetest Thing. Don't ask me, a (female) friend of mine was watching this and I sat down. Surprisingly, seeing Cameron Diaz sing songs about the penis is actually funnier than it had any right to be. C-

Wild At Heart. It's David Lynch. It's really bizarre and metaphorical David Lynch. I like some of his stuff, but this just seemed like a train wreck trying to be a movie. C

Dreamcatcher. It's Stephen King. Two marginally connected plots converge to confuse the hell out of the audience. However, there are killer alien worms, copious amounts of blood, Morgan Freeman and Jason Lee. Okay. B-

Cowboy Bebop - The Movie
Normally it's called "Knocking on Heaven's Door" but this is the title that was given for the theater release. This movie was major kickass-age. The plot is basic, but there's lots of suspense, and the action scenes go nicely with the big band and jazz background music. The scenes are nice and create very cool atmospheres. If you like any kind of action and are lucky enough to live close to a release, watch it. It's got wonderful music and you don't need to like anime to enjoy this one. A-

Eyes Wide Shut

was on TV yesterday, and since I live in Europe, it wasn't censored at all.

So typically Kubrick, with the distant camera angle, oversized rooms, scenery and furniture, use of special lighting, slow development, etc.
It wasn't bad, just a bit weird.
There were also some impressive, very explicit scenes.

I recently saw Ringu, the original Japanese version of The Ring.  Some people say the American version is better, and I wouldn't be surprised.  Ringu was okay, but it was mostly too dull for a scary movie, though there were some good creepy parts.  The characters act like they know they're characters in a movie and very easily accept that something supernatural is going on.  And I can't believe the picture went negative when people died.  It looked like they were being killed by the Daleks.

Speaking of which, on the same day that I saw that movie I saw the Doctor Who story Kinda, and its "open the box" cliffhanger was more originally creepy than anything in Ringu.

Saw "Sum Of All Fears" last night. I liked this film personally. It was cleverly done, if the romantic lines are very cheesy.

Great to see Richard Marner (German Colonel from 'Allo 'Allo) even if he played a Russian President that had about 2 sets of lines before falling down dead.  roll eyes

The Ring
Okay, I admit I enjoy abstract movies, but this...ugh.  I really didn't like this movie.  I didn't find it scary, just kinda creepy.  I thought the cinematography was pretty good and it had a good storyline, but there were several spots I got bored with.  I heard Samara was really scary from my friends, but I couldn't help snickering when I saw her in the film.  I'm sorry, but I can't be scared of a little girl who looks like my little sister and is played by the VA for Lilo in "Lilo and Stitch."  It was an interesting film that creeped me out for about five minutes after watching it, but it was mostly because I was thinking, "What if...THIS was the movie that killed you in seven days?"  I thought the connections Rachel made in the movie were pretty good as she traced the video to its source, but I didn't see Naomi Watts as the person a newspaper wants to hire.  She seemed way too irresponsible and stressed out.  Anyway, the film was okay, but it was most certainly not the scariest film I've ever seen (That would be "Night of the Living Dead" ).

Bring It On

Ok, so I was bored... and got it recommended to me by my best friend back home - after hanging out and not getting ANY of the injokes she was chanting/dancing/singing.

Annoying film to say the least, but somehow addictive. I've watched it 3 times in 3 days. What's wrong with me? The acting is so bad by half the girls, where it's so obvious they wait for one line to be spoken then they robotically read their line afterwards as if they're waiting for their cue. Unless that's the idea of the whole thing. Bimbos.
Nonetheless its' catchy. "We're sexy! We're cute! And we're popular to boot!" Are the opening words. I'm sorry, but if that doesn't get stuck in your head for the rest of the day, then their acting out of the song Oh Mickey You're So Fine at the end of the movie will definitely get you.
It does get easier to watch the more times you see it. It's definitely one of those stupid stupid movies that gets cultered into you.
Notable pieces: Characters Cliff and Missy (played by Eliza Dushku - you know, the *other* slayer from Buffy heheh) are, I think, the better actors in this whole thing. Despite the overall shallowness of this movie, it's kinda fun, and for the boys, enjoy the perve  smile

I watched Thursday, the movie seemed really bland and wasn't as funny as the first one.

I still don't really understand fully why that girl would be the light.

Shalin Soccer
Easly one of the funniest films I have seen in a long time. It is a great send up of sports films and Kung-fu/Wuxia films. I was laughing my ass off a lot during the movie. And it had only small amounts of the usual anoying HKlow brow humor! The special effects were not 100% realistic but they worked and were creative as hell.

I thought of creating either a thread about cameo's, or a thread about previews and inside information on movies. But I was lazy and I also couldn't decide, so I put it here anyway.

Emotion Eric says he 'll be in Matrix: Reloaded. More in the main section of the site.

Monday April 14th, I attended a spoken word performance of Henry Rollins. He told the audience about how he bullshitted himself into getting a role in Bad Boys 2. I don't recall all the details though.
He just went to the audition, and gave a kickass performance good enough to wake up Jerry Bruckheimer, the producer, who was hanging in a sofa, as well as some other important people.
His role: SWAT team commander. The funny thing is, the SWAT guys in the movie are the real deal. They had to teach him everything.

JACKASS: The Movie
Someone reviewed it higher up, and he was 100% correct in saying that if you are a Jackass fan you will like this movie. But if you are a normal person, such as myself, then you will find it hard to sit in the theatre and watch all one hour and a half of it. At one stage i walked out of the theatre, as i could not stand to see the guys paper cut themselves one more time! C

The Truman Show
I had never seen this movie until I saw it three weeks ago on TV. I always missed it whenever it was on, and never got around to hiring it. I found this movie great, although it was a bit strange at times. The ending was touching, and the last line of the movie was a great reflection on society. A. If you have not seen it, you should see it!

A Mighty Wind

Christopher Guest strikes again with this sexxy, sexxy, SEXXY movie.  From the comic genius that brought you This is Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman, and Best in Show, comes this mockumentary of folk singers, 30 years after they were famous.  Almost everybody from Guffman and Best in Show appear.  There is so much to say about this movie, so I'll sum it up: Spinal Tap sings folk music, Eugene Levy as a burned-out crackhead, and Harry Shearer (aka Principal Skinner) in drag.

New Best Friend

In a brief viewing of this movie, I strain to recall anything outstanding. I don't mean that in a particularly bad way though, it wasn't such a bad movie to watch actually. As a poor girl gets involved in a group of rich girls at college, an unravelling mystery of lies, drugs and a copious amount of alcohol is drawn out to find out what happened to her when she ODs on cocaine. I'm surprised to believe that this girl knew so much so quickly. She sure picked up the badgirl way a little too naturally, but as you realise, it's only to get herself forward in life as she tells her old best friend "Don't ruin this for me" when she feels left out and accuses her of changing. An interesting and revealing movie. Makes me wonder if there are people (students) actually out there like that, and it's not just the rich and famous rockstars that behave like this.
But if I bring this up, then I know I'm not one of them either.

It's a nice change from all those stupid meaningless chick flicks I've been seeing lately!

Anger Management
I saw this today and I thought it was quite enjoyable. It did lack a good plot but it was still funny. Adam Sandler has matured as an actor and in this movie does not play a dumbass maniac who can't do anything (Happy Gilmore, Little Nicky, Billy Madison...) but plays a semi-intelligent normal man.

I would not say this is as funny as his other movies, but it is certainly 'better' and this new Adam Sandler is a lot better actor.

What can I say this a a fantastic movie and it deserved it's Oscar, unlike some of the other films that got them.
Miyazaki once again crafts a beutiful story with animation that matchs this beauty. The musical score fits th movie perfectly.
All I can say is if you have not seen this you should it is a great movie experiance.

Just saw X-Men 2, liked it. Was fun to watch saw it in a midnight screening filled with geeks. Was fun as hell, the audience aplauded whenever a character used their mutant powers in a creative way (and there was lots of applause)

Fat Pizza Movie
Finally got around to seeing it and although it was oh so bad it was oh so funny. The movie could also be seen by someone who does not watch the tv show. Definately worth seeing, one of the funniest movies around, and I can't wait for the dvd release. A

^Also in response to the Crocodile Hunter movie, it was on the plane when I came back from Darwin last year and definately is the worst movie I have ever ever seen. I physically could not watch it all. F-

X2

Well I thought this one was alot better than the first X-men movie, which while fun was not well plotted.
This time if you are a X-men comic fan, which I am, you can play spot the mutant. Some are easy to spot, Collosos is very easy, some not so if you don't know their real names, can you find Beast.
This movie gives abit of a background to Wolverine's past, although they do not tell you that his real name is not Logan. The action is well done and while I was skeptical when I first saw Nightcrawler I thought he was really cool in it.
Also looks like they have been setting up the next movies plot

It's a good fun movie so I recomend you go see it.
