i just saw Spider-Man
and i liked it
everybody's already reviewed it, so i'll just review the trailers;

Men in Black II trailer 2: this is a different trailer for MIB2 then the other one i saw every other time, and this one was better. i didn't really like the idea of the "de-neuralizer", it's just too easy. it really just looks like more of the same, only worse, but i'll still of course see it. rock.

xXx trailer: at first i thought it was Fast and the Furious 2, but it's really just Vin Deasel (sp) running around, shooting shit, blowing shit up, having sex with some hot chick, blowing some more shit up, driving really fast, etc. cool.

Scooby-Doo trailer: goddamn, i hate this trailer. every time i saw it it pissed me off, what the hell did they make this for? i mean, "let's get jinky with it", "your name means scobby poop", freddy prince jr...what the hell were the thinking/smoking? SMG's character just seems like a bimbo version of Buffy. retarded.

Amen, TSN-Bot: Scooby Doo is a lock for Worst Movie of the Year 2002. It looks so horrible it's unbelievable, and ad campaigns always put the best stuff out front. This is their best stuff? And the trailers don't even show you Rowan (Blackadder, but also Bean, Rat Race) Atkinson. I have to admit, though, that's a decent Shaggy impersonation. It still begs the same question as the rest of the mess: Why? Why? Oh God why?

Trailers Ahoy!

Scooby Doo:  I don't even want to see the trailer for this movie, the commercials are bad enough.  They take a fun cartoon and make it live action(what's the point?) while shoving substandard young hollywood actors down our throats.  I'm sure it'll be full of witty Fred is gay and Shaggy is a stoner jokes.

You thought the cartoon was fun? Hmmm.... I saw the Scooby trailer while I was buying tickets for Resident Evil. There'll be plenty of jokes about getting the munchies, that's for sure. And the character's wardrobes look gaudy in real life, that they look so fake. If the plot's simple enought for the kiddies, then the movie would work in that sense. For example, The Flinstones missed its intended audience by using corporate production and embezzlement as its main plot.

the trailers at Minority Report (which ruled) were:

Bad Company: yeah there's these two cops or fbi agents or something and one of them's serious and commited to his job and near retirement and the other one's wacky and geting into crazy situations and hilarity ensues and one of them is chris rock and the other one's anthony hopkins wow must be funny. meh.

Signs: "directed by M. Night Shyamalan" means i must like it. looks kind of x-fileish. aliens are in the backyard making signs and then mel gibson sees one of the aliens and the alien looks at him. k00l. ;D

I'm just hoping for the love of humanity that show doesn't paint a good picture of high school girls in the USA.

Has anyone reviewed/seen Vanilla Sky?
I thought this was a good movie although a bit confusing at moments, there was times I thought, "Wait a minute......what the hell?"
and then 20 mins later I thought "OH RIGHT".
Out of Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz you only get to see one of em nekkid but I won't say which.

The Extreme Adventures of Super Dave

When I was a kid, every time we got a free weekend of Showtime, I would always make a point to watch Super Dave. I don't know why, but I liked it. Was it ever actually funny? I honestly can't remember it, aside from the wacky stunts at the end of each show.

I figured this movie would be good in a "hey, I used to watch this crap" way. Sadly, it is terrible. Really really terrible. I usually love bad movies, but this was really just embarrassing to watch. There were so many "what the fuck?" moments...I don't know who directed this, but they should be shot. Lines are poorly dubbed in, for seemingly no reason. Other lines are dubbed over, to get a PG rating(including one bit where a kid "curses", and a nun faints. Of course, nothing offensive is said, and when the nun faints you just think "what the fuck?" ).

I won't even talk about the plot, or the acting, or the completely jokeless celebrity cameos. Oh wait, I just did.

Being extremely polite, I would say there are maybe three good gags in the movie, and one was taken directly from the show(it may have even been the same footage...I'm not sure). I give this movie my lowest rating ever, a million thumbs down.

i'm seeing it again either today or tommorrow, usually i wait a week to see a good movie again, but this was that good.
5 thumbs up.

if there's one flaw, which there isn't, its
and that wasn't even really bad.

Just came back from Minority Report and I do have to admit that it honestly ruled.

And what was wrong with that scene, it was one of the dozen or so Speilbergizms that were scattered through out the film. I honestly think that this movie was one of his better directed a lot of well done shots and ideas for scenes.

I hope that after the kid finished the Vanilla Coke, they shot him gangland-style.

Then again, it probably would've been less painful to be shot first.

Yesterday I rented the DVD Battle Royale.  It 's a Japanese movie.

In the near future, Japanese highschoolers start boycotting the schools.  The governement passes the Battle Royale law.  Every year, one class is chosen by lot.  They 're taken to an island.  They have to wear a special collar with sensors and explosives.  They have to kill each other in order to survive.  If they don't, the collar will explode.

A very good movie IMO.  Sure, it 's ultra-violence.  But it has a morale too.

Oh yes, I doubt you 'll get your hands on this DVD in Censorland.

UHF

Do we have a DVD Review thread? I thought we did, but I couldn't find it, and I'll be damned if I'm going to start one myself.

Anyway, the UHF DVD rocks sooo much. Just when I think I've outgrown my "Weird Al" phase, he comes up with some great new gags that have me laughing for days. Specifically, "Those Darn Homo's!" in the deleted scenes section. That's the kind of thing that only Al can do.

The commentary is great, too. Easily the best DVD commentary I've listened to so far. There aren't any pauses at all--it's jammed end-to-end with cool/funny remarks about the movie. TV's Michael Richards even comes in for a few minutes. Pretty damn funny.

It's kind of depressing to hear how it bombed in theaters though. I wish Weird Al could have a sexy movie career...his sketch comedy is hilarious. When Running With Scissors came out, I was more excited about the various MTV/VH-1 specials than the album itself(even though it was pretty good).

Battle Royale was an entertaining movie. That's about all I'd say it has going for it. The violence was gratuitous and all, but it had a Lord of the Flies feel. I think it had an interesting premise and the banding together, mistrust, etc, were shown and factored in realistically. The way the good guys won at the end was pretty farfetched though.

LILO AND STITCH
   love    love    love    love
i laughed, i cried, i saw it three times in one week. This is the best animated movie in the world! I would have even gone to see it again today if it weren't so impractical and expensive. i'm normally indifferent to disney animated flics but this one kicks ass and best of all, NONE of the characters break into ill-timed original songs! And there are NO talking animals!! Except for Stitch of course, but he dosn't count cause he's an alien. I want the DVD and i want it NOW!
   love    love    love
Oh my god, they compare Stitch to Nibbler in this review, someone out there actually was able to find Futurama, i bet Fox is pissed.

Hm...what movie shall I review?  I wonder...  big grin
Hey Arnold! The Movie
I saw this movie yesterday when the weather was really rainy (Surprise!  It's Oregon!) and wasn't expecting much for audience turnout.  However, I was really annoyed that only six people besides me and my sis showed up for the whole movie.  Anyway, I thought the movie was great.  The animation's generally like the TV show animation, only the characters kind of pop-out more than on TV.  The dialogue wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible and I found some lines funny, though judging by the silence, no one else did.  I really enjoyed the parodies (Men in Black, Shawshank Redemption), but the best were when Deep Voice is guiding Arnold out of the FTI building on the phone ala Morpheus in the Matrix and my favorite, when pickle juice turns Big Bob into the Incredible Hulk.  And let's not forget the Speed- runaway bus bit.  However, I think the real reason everyone was there was Helga using the L-word to Arnold. Her love confession was easily the best scene in the movie and Arnold's startled look and his pupils shrinking when she kissed him were priceless.  Of course, the whole thing is predictably sorted out by the end of the film.  The ending between Arnold and Helga reminded me a bit of Spider-Man's ending.  It was nostalgically-adequate, but made me feel sad since I have a feeling the second movie will never be made.  All in all, it wasn't bad for a Nick Flick turned theatrical movie.  Now, if you'll excuse me I have an inexplicable desire to listen to "2-Way" by lil' Romeo...
Worst Bits: Phoebe under-used, the fast-forward-26-days montage.
Best Bits: No Lila (Yes!  wink ), Helga's love confession, movie parodies, spotting characters in the first scene ("Look!  It's Dr. Bliss!" ) and Nick ordering a 'Bartlett' at the bar.
Grade: B
Not the best, but go see it if only to add to the box office gross and see the sub-plot resolved that's been building since they were three...  love

I doubt many people will know the movie Suite 16, by Dominique Deruddere (1994).  I liked it a lot.  The ending was very good.

Minority Report

Not a bad movie, not a great movie.  Some very interesting ideas contained, and it does keep you guessing, from time to time.  They did a few things that made me surprised that they got away with a PG-13, but eh, whatever.  I wasn't overly impressed with the jetpacks scene - I have seen Rocketeer, after all, and MR didn't have anything Rocketeer didn't in the way of jetpacks.  Tom Cruise didn't manage to suck it up, either.

All in all, I'd give it a B-/B.  I don't regret paying to see it, but I'm in no real hurry to see it again.

While I'm here, could someone tell me the ending of a film called "Red Planet"? I saw it in school, but the bell went as the end was nearing! The last scene I saw was of one of the crew members being eaten by bugs in the algae or something.

Scooby-Doo

This movie would not have been my first choice, but someone else was paying for it so I allowed myself to be dragged along.

It was actually a bit better than I expected. There were a few scenes where you had to laugh out loud and "Yes! Puppy power THAT! you stupid mini *beep*!

Anyway, to the entire movie I give a B. To those scenes I give an A +

There is such a scene in there. I also heard there was a scene that proves Velma's a lesbo, but it must be really hidden because I didn't see it.

There was, but it was edited out.  Velma kissed Daphne, ala "Cruel Intentions."  Sarah Michelle Gellar told presses that she hopes they put that scene on the DVD.  Where did I get this strange information?  Why, a Christian movie review by Focus on the Family, no less.  tongue   They hate just about every movie and thought HA! promotes "flippitant idol worship" and that Arnold wears a skirt.  I kid you not.  big grin
 http://www.family.org/pplace/pi/films/A0021283.html
The skirt part's been removed, but the bulk of the review is still there.
Makes me glad I'm not that discriminatory in how I pick movies.  smile
