Moving on from the off topics after this:

Spoiler:

Don't forget to make him a close friend of the villian!



National Treasure 2:  4/5.

Good, and mildly predicatable.  Includes a small lead in for NT3.

We bought my dad a movie called Rhinocerous.  (He collects Rhino stuff. And loves Gene Wilder.)  It must have been one of Gene's first pieces, cuz even though he was the main character, he wasn't mentioned first.  Some guy with 2 scenes was...

Is there anything lower than 1 of 5 stars?  Let's go with that.

The movie was political propeganda.  Not worth buying and certainly not worth watching.

You Don't Mess With The Zohan: 3.5/5

It was... OK. It was one of those stupid funny movies you see with your friends. But it had good cameos. I won't name any. I'll let you figure them out when you watch it.

Heeeey, I just watched that movie!

God, I think I'm scarred for life.

All in the name of friendship, bud....*twitches*


So yes....another little note for the movie:
If you're particularly sensitive to suggestiveness, but all means avoid this movie, via bazooka if necessary.

It wasn't suggestiveness. He blantantly says he wants "the bang-boom," and, my favorite[/sarcasm], "Let me have your mother again, then we go." There's nothing suggestive about the movie.

Ssh, I was trying to keep it minimal.

Oh...there are butt shots, too, if people are squeamish about that.

OK, let's stop before we scar each other more and spoil the movie for everyone else. Agreed? Agreed. Good. Done.

Crash: 5/5

Alright, yeah, it was suggested by Oprah, which is usually my notive to get the hell out of there.
And, yeah, it does deal a lot with stereotypes and how we, as humans, give into stereo types.
When my Aunt made me watch it, I was sure I was going to hate it.

And, in some ways I did. I hated how it cleverly showed the holes in my own soul, and the darkness that's still lurking around.
Amazingly well done, perfect shots, and character who have the biggest reversal of beliefs I've ever seen.
Ingenious.

I know it's been out for a while now, but I just saw it.  I kinda wish I hadn't.  

Jumper: 3/5

This movie had so much potential and several cool things going for it, but a few failed key elements are virtually impossible to overlook.  There were several inconsistencies in the dialogue alone that I caught the first time I watched it, and I can only assume there were others I missed.  Even worse, ALL of the characters are simultaneously a hair more intelligent than a pile of rocks and considerably less believable than flying fire-breathing purple winged unicorns.  

If you do decide to watch it, do yourself a favor and stop when...spoilerspoilerspoiler...the main guy goes back to his girlfriend's house when she gets captured.  Seriously.  From here on out, the movie will make you want to track down the producer and shoot him in the face.  I cannot even tell you how badly they screwed it up.

Went and saw The Dark Knight, must say I really enjoyed it...

The license plates are IL with something else in the middle (normally there is a picture of Lincoln's head/shoulders).  I think it's symbol from the Gotham City flag.  But anyway, it was a really cool movie, with some really good scenes and stunts.

And, oh...it sorely tempts me to create another evil character...

The Dark Knight was amazing easily the best movie of the 21st Century* but with it came something almost as epic.

The first Trailer for Watchmen. Yes a movie based on the most reconized Graphic Novel ever writen.

So I'm just gonna sit here and hope we get something good out of this and not another V for Vendetta or Constantine.

* The 21st Century so far it has a long way to go before truly earning that title.

Hancock: **.5 out of *****

Just like Jumper, this movie had a lot of potential in the first forty-five minutes, and then... collapsed and went in an entirely different direction during the second half. I'll admit that it was a twist I didn't expect, but effectively the director took a movie that could have been really, really awesome and screwed it up into some kind of skewed love story that had some gaping plot holes and stretched the willing suspension of disbelief to and sometimes beyond the breaking point.

Personally, I think this would have been a lot better if:
Spoiler:

The movie had ended with Hancock dying for Mary to live, or even better, both of them dying after they turned mortal. I think this would have saved it or, at the very least, made me respect it more.



As it is... I'm just disappointed. Will Smith, however, played his role very well.

The Dark Knight: *****/*****

Pure awesome. Heath Ledger in his last performance is amazing.

Just... see it. Immediately Razz

Watchmen Trailer: Also looks pretty cool, but the material may be too complex/different to turn into a two hour movie. *crosses fingers*

On a random note, I'd like to mention that every time I see the House Bunny trailer, I want to push on my eyeballs until they explode.

It's a year or so late, but I just saw Sunshine for the first time. It's like 4 am right now so I might be tired and might not be making sense, but still. Spoilers below:

Spoiler:

Well, it is what it says on the box, a sci-fi action thriller "with nonstop action". Basically a bunch of people have to launch a nuclear bomb the size of Manhattan into the sun to jump-start it because it's dying and will kill everything on Earth if it dies.

The first hour or so is good, people die, shit happens, it's a very bleak science fiction story. The last 40 minutes or so, however, takes it in the direction of a slasher flick set in space. A religious nut-job with a really bad sunburn who's been staring at the sun for literally 7 years and claims that God wants him to "send every human alive to heaven" goes on a killing spree with what I think is a dentist's drill. The remaining few people die in increasingly squickish ways (one guy submerges himself in coolant liquid, but when he emerges his legs are pinned down and cut off inside the tank, then he freezes to death on the catwalk above it).

But eventually the bomb is detonated and the Earth is saved. Everybody on the ship dies in the process, but one of the protagonists' family watches the sun go from really-really dim to basically what it is today back on Earth. The ending is kind of touching, although the last guy's death sequence is hilariously slow. Seriously, if you're falling at god knows how many miles per hour on an object the size of Manhattan towards an something like the sun, the giant wall of flame and gas doesn't inch along at 2 miles per hour towards you.

Basically, it has quite a few "I really didn't need to see that" moments, and it's whole genre switches halfway through, but otherwise it's pretty good. I'd give it a 7/10.

Pirates 3 sucked bigtime.

It's like Disney said 'just throw whatever together' so that they could make more money...  What's really sad is that it worked.

Well I liked it. The fight in the maelstrom was excellent.

But the marriage in it?  Completely rediculous.

As was almost every scene with Jack Sparrow.  It's almost like he became a complete afterthought in this movie.

I dunno, I thought Pirates 3 was good. The original was by far the best, but I liked 3. Although I didn't like how...
Spoiler:

...Calypso just kind of showed up with no previous mention.

Yeah, that sucked too.  I honestly liked the very end

Spoiler:

where they made Will the new Davy Jones



but, it was rather obvious throughout the movie what would happen.

I thought the second one was the worst.

The third atleast had enough mindless action and absurdities to make it a decent action comedy for those nights where you just want to turn off your brain and drool at the pretty pictures.
