Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer cheesy. things didn’t even make sense, like whatever the silver surfer said. he was probably asking for a big mac without the special sauce but with some big rhetorical jargon about his planet and biggy sizing…i don’t know. but for such advanced technology, he couldn’t find anything cooler than a surfboard, or at least more efficient so won’t be blasted away from it. i mean, at least let it be a snowboard. but i guess The SilverSurfboarder doesn’t sound as threatening. anyway, whoever wrote the in between the plot really didn’t do justice to their powers. All the Stretch guy was good for was to reach the glass of water from the other room. It was overall just cheesy, uninvolved, without substance, and would have been better if i had some side fries- biggy sized.
License to Wed this movie annoyed me, mainly because all the characters were stereotypically played. you knew what you were gonna get right from the cast itself…so that made the acting annoying. it was like anger management, except the counselling was a priest. and the problem solving…omg…this is the problem with these type of movies where the main character acts like he can still be bullied by the highschool…um…bully… it just got old after the first 20 mins.
28 Weeks Later… out of all the zombie movies, this one makes me jump the most (ok…twitch really…i’m not an easy jumper). there’s just something about the “Rage” that makes these zombies a little more frightening…or it could just be the more compelling zombie …(read more)music that evokes more urgency. the ending was a litte weak, but overall, it was entertaining…
Mr. Bean’s Holiday i’m not even going to waste my time writing on this one… nuff said.
Evan Almighty more palatable than bruce almighty. one- because of steve carrell (which would suffice for any jim carry movie comparison). two- the wanda sykes one liners…which basically were the funny parts (with the exception towards the end, when the writers probably ran out of coffee). as always, steve carrell does a great job conveying comedy without having to go so over the top. but what i liked, as cheesy as it may sound, are when the writers actually get it right- the morals… when the words actually weigh more than the movie… …like when Morgan freeman says, “when someone asks for God to make him more patient, does God just make him patient or give him the opportunity to practice patience…etc” … that’s clear…and great to ponder…
Transformers sue me. it was like the movie 300- overhyped, that by the time i was so excited to watch it, i was like- huh? really? it was good, but not that good that you’d actually spend time to go into your profile account and spend 5 mins. updating your favorite movies section. for one thing, why did optimus prime seem more like a potential pensive blogger more than an autobots fighting machine? in the end of the movie, i was expecting OP to bust out a website promo for more on his thoughts like jack handy. one good thing that came out of this film though was the main character, -no, not the extremely hot chick who can “fix cars” sporting washboard abs and heels, but the nerd kid who knew how to act. who knew? he was so talkative, like a gilmore girl on crack, but in a convincing way, not a put a gun to my head kind of way. overall, it had some great action scenes (ok…scene…like the end), but even then, you didn’t know who was a decepticon or autobot. it’s been a while since i’ve seen the cartoons, but they should seriously have […]
Blood Diamond sometimes, what credits a good movie is its influencial factor; what type of active response will it bear? this movie made me really rethink the unecessary comodity of diamonds, but its elevated value, only because media and companies make you believe the status incorporated and connotated w/ diamonds… but ethics aside, the acting was exceptional, the action scenes were convincing, and the strife was convicting….
