Two Thumbs up..


Watched Kiss Kiss Bang Bang last night, and what a good watch it was!! A very fresh and completely enjoyable take on what is a pretty standard us film.... well acted and all together i'd give it a solid 9.43 out of 15!!!

Saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I liked it and I didn't like it. But that always happens for me with these movies. Also saw Ratatouille (like a week before HP) and I really liked it. For me it was Pixar back to the level of quality I expect from them. My mom and I also saw No Reservations last week and I really liked it as well. Who would have known that a cute movie could come at a PG rating and that two people can fall in love without dropping the f word and without the movie makers feeling that America needs to see them in bed together?



I agree! I really liked that movie too!

 

 



I thought it was very well done. There are few movies that had I children I would feel even slightly comfortable taking them to see, but I would this one. Another movie I've always felt that way about was Ever After.

Many of the movies geared towards kids now have stuff I would never want kids they're aimed at to see or hear at their age.

Same actress in Little Miss Sunshine is in this and she is also Mel Gibsons daughter in Signs. Interestingly enough, the same actress in Shayalaman's Lady in the Water and The Village was Peter Parkers rebound girl in Spider Man.

Spider Man did not receive good reviews, but I actually thought it was the better out of the three. I took all the past stuff and weaved it all together. It was nicely done. They took their time with the plot and I think that might have bored people, the kind of people who don't appreciate the art of intricate story telling ... kinda like Lost!

It wrapped everything up well, though there could be a sequel. And it maintained it's usual themes of the importance of one person, overcoming our own misgivings and weaknesses. That appearances can be deceiving once you know all the details.

National Treasure: Book of Secrets

Saw it today.  You definitely need to have seen the first in order to understand much of the character interactions and some parts of the film itself.  (And it saves one having to ask a lot of questions about who is who and why.)  Review is now to follow, encased in spoiler tags.

Prince Caspian

I'm on the fence between a thumbs up and a thumbs down. Had I not just re-read the book I would have liked it better. It was good, but it was a disappointment as far as staying true to the book is concerned. I realize that this book was the hardest of the entire series to translate to film, but half the film (so it felt like) wasn't in the book and wasn't necessary. I don't know that I would go see it again in the theaters but I might buy it.

Don't Mess With the Zohan. I don't recommend seeing this one, at least not in the theater. It had it's funny moments but was raunchy and had too many of the same jokes over and over again. A lot of stuff about his crotch and the way he got a lot of elderly customers was by being sexual with them in the salon and then having sex with them. weirdfaceThat was just too weird and uncomfortable for me.

Indiana Jones: Enjoyed it. Not as good as Raiders, but worth the time and money to see it.

Iron Man: Good movie. Liked it a lot. Stay till the end of the credits.

Get Smart: Really enjoyed it. Go see it. It's fun. How anyone keeps a straight face around that man is beyond me.

I really liked HANC0CK. It's been getting criticism but most of the people in the theater clapped for it. I think it had a clever story line.

I'd like to see Han****. Raiders paled in comparison to the previous, although it had some clever moments ... the storyline was a bit hoaky for Indie.
