What's love got to do with it

I watched this last night and it intrests me. It's a drama story about Tina Turner on what her life was before she became a huge star. Can't belive that her husband Ike Turner was so cruel and he abused her.

I think it's a true story.

Of course it 's a true story.  It has been know for a long time that Ike used to beat the crap out of Tina.

But it didn't work. She still makes crap.

Kung Pow- Enter the fist

God this movie is funny as hell. The dubbing is halarious and spoofs heaps of movies, including The Matrix and Bruce Lee (Enter the Dragon). It easily gets my five thumbs up award.

austin powers in goldmember
yeah, it was the worst of the three, but i actually liked it. a few lame jokes but there was enough funny stuff for me to like it. a read that a lot of people disliked the goldmember character, but i for some reason found him pretty funny. funnier was the other characters reactions to him though. mini-me was hilarious. foxxy cleopatrawhatever was pretty good, better than heather graham. yeah, three out of five i guess.
and the opening scene was awesome.

Bourne Identity

Reminded me of Mission Impossible. My dad finished reading the book and was slightly disappointed with how the film scuppered so many possibilities left by the book. Still, very enjoyable and the music is great.  big grin

From Hell

Pretty good, despite that its the third in the "Johnny Depp as an occult investigator" trilogy (see, "Sleepy Hollow", "The Ninth Gate" ). The movie does clip along at a nice pace, even though that could be because this is a *highly* fictionalized version of the Jack the Ripper case.

Agreed.

Did you not think though that there were some things that the film skated over, like, what was the deal with the headaches?

Yeah, thinking about it. I haven't read the book yet, there are probably several other points that they decided to throw in but didn't cover well compared to the book.
For instance
"The guy takes the money bag but leaves his gun, what do you think this means?"
I don't think this was ever answered, we were left to guess...

Yes, we all remember the classic TV kids show, The Magic Roundabout. Our school PC network's named after it. We have Dougal, Dylan, Florence ect.
Anyway, i don't know how it'll be a 90 minute film, but expect it some time 2003.

This film made me laugh. I laughed at Denise Richards' "acting skills". And the fact that they kept being killed by all these giant bugs. I probably wouldn't watch it again.

I'm slightly worried by Die Another Day - it's looking a bit too cheesy from the trailers...  hmpf

Magic Roundabout - 2004 actually.
CGI instead of lovable stop-frame
Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue...
no, this is not a unrelated article, they will be Dougal and Florence respectively  eek

Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous) - Ermitrude
Richard O'Brian (Rocky Horror Show/Crystal Maze) - Zebedee
Jim Broadbent (Iris/Moulin Rouge) - Brain
Dylan is unknown yet, Tom Baker (fourth Doctor Who) and Ray Winston (some TV hardman) will play additional new characters

RED-DRAGON

Decent movie, havent seen Silence of the Lambs so i cant say if it was better than that or not.  MUCH MUCH MUCH better than Hannibal.  The person i was with like the ending of the movie better than the ending of the book.  she said it stayed with the book for the most part.  I found it to be entertaining, and athony Hopkins is a great actor.  Edward Norton also does a good job.  Im glad i had someone who knew the movie to help explain a few parts of it to me, but all an all its a good movie, and worth it if you can get a student discount.

I don't like The Matrix.  Sure the fights are good, but that doesn't really make up for some of it's other problems.

The story is based on a cool idea, but the whole "humans as batteries" thing doesn't make any sense to anyone with the most basic understanding of thermodynamics.  All they would have had to do to make me happy would be to leave that out and say something about the computers being fundamentally prevented from committing genocide.

Red Dragon
Very good. I liked it as much as Silence of the Lambs and better than the Hannibal movie. (Speaking as one who has read all the books before seeing any of the movies, Hannibal is the best. The book was awesome but you lost so much in the transition to film.) It was very true to the book, which is what went wrong with Hannibal. They learned their lesson. Silence was true and it did well, and I think this will too. It had quite a bit of graphic violence... the mirrored eyes particularily, and biting off the reporters lips. If you're squeemish, go with someone who's seen it once or read it already...
Good acting all around, except the blind woman... she could have been better. Francis' character was awesome, as was Graham.

Edit: Go see it.

Novocaine

Eh. I'm really torn up about this movie. It's obvious that it wasn't sure whether it wanted to be a dark comedy, a thriller, a mystery, or some semblance of all three. It did coin the new phrase "Action Dentist~!", though. The cast delievered some good performances, even though the ending comes from completely out of the blue. Worth seeing maybe once, on DVD.

Elias Kotas is in it. Yes, that's Casey Jones from the TMNT movie! I'm so ashamed that I know that.   cry

News flash! Helena Bonham-Carter is still hot, even though she can't seem to get away from roles that require her to have gallons of makeup plastered over her face. Still...  flirt

Minority Report

It was good. Entertaining. Sometimes a bit funny. It made me think of some of the James Bond movies (gadgets and blatant product placement*), Mission Impossible (Tom Cruise, obviously), and Artificial Intelligence (some corny melodramatic family scenes; the design, the scenery and special effects).  I found the storyline complicated and unpredictable. The thought "This must be the end of the movie" occurred to me several times, just like in A.I.. Then I discovered that it wasn't the end at all. 

*Some of the product placement: Lexus, Bulgari, Nokia, Pepsi, Guiness, ...

There were some flaws:
When the "real" bad guy (forgot his name) fires his gun at "the guy who you think was the bad guy, but who is not the real bad guy", you can clearly see smoke coming out of a hole under the barrel of it.  I thought smoke always came out of the barrel?

And how come Anderton, the main character, can still use his eyes for retina scan access systems, even after he is on the run for Precrime. Couldn't they have locked him out of the system ?

I watched 'Sliding Doors' today so..

Sliding Doors

I wasn't overly keen on it. It had a fairly predicatble and boring storyline. Nothing too impressive. Some funny lines in it and a lot of terrible attempts by Americans trying to do the 'posh' English accent. No offence to any Americans but your actors suck at accents  wink
I got bored about half way through but it had an interesting ending. Overall I'd give it a 4 out of ten  smile

Night of the living dead: Funniest horror movie I have ever seen. The acting was terrible, the little girl was freaky, and the whole movie is one big irony. It was a cool concept, but the way they executed it made it look bad. Although it did keep me entertained with laughs. I give it a 5 out of 10. I would suggest seeing it, if you haven't already  big grin

Speli, have you seen Dawn of the Dead (the sequel of Night of the Living Dead.)  It's absolutely amazing! 
I have the theatrical cut on DVD (non-region, out of print.)  There's a really nice region-two director's cut which I haven't bothered to order yet.

Dawn of the Dead is, by far, the best of Romero's undead films. How can you not love a film that involves hordes of zombies, bikers, cops, and whiny helicopter pilots all trapped inside a suburban mall?

PS, I think we need a zombie or an Ash-like smilie added to the menu.
