White Noise once you get through the whole movie, it’s almost laughable because you wonder where everything came from. you don’t know people’s motives, ghosts’ motives, the wife’s motives…the logic of it all seems so jumbled up that the movie compensates by putting in some jumpy sequences, which isn’t that great either…let’s just put it this way, i thought Whit Noise was as boring as watching a tv with white noise…
Bewitched 2 minutes ago although the sitcom was one of my childhood favorites, and this movie chose an enjoyable cast, i’d still have to give the movie mediocre reviews because it wasn’t really laugh out loud funny. the character that nicole kidman played differentiated from the character of samantha stevens, which i believe was intentional, but that was what made me a little irked by her- her niavite and cliche innocence that lacked more complexity. the movie also made things a little more confusing when they started bringing in old characters from the original sitcom like aunt clara and uncle arthur. although their roles were farcical, their portrayals were cheesy compared to the original actors. their roles just made it confusing. i believe the only thing worth seeing was nicole kidman and will ferrell, two very charming actors…aside from them, the movie just did not suffice my expectations.
Batman Begins I’d have to say that the director has finally enough decency to deviate from the normal theatrical almost hilarious tone from the past Batman movies, and has finally given Batman the more serious persona that he should be given as a superhero. Straying from all the flashy costumes, Batman and his enemies finally have a chance to be respected instead of seeming as if they have just escaped out of the Gotham circus troop. The characters have a little more plot realism, complicated economic motivation, although i didn’t believe all that “cleansing” mumbo jumbo…that was a little lame. The casting of characters were also not that bad, although i did have to really work myself into believing that Katie Holmes was not Dawson Leary’s girlfriend anymore from the Creek…but a respected idealist…(although yes, that elvis thing she does still sometimes bothers me…). The plot was more complicated, the characters with more development, and the overall theme was a bit darker…so I liked it…it had to be the best Batman so far, or maybe in a tie with Batman Returns. ya. so score one for Batman.
Catwoman i am still a very big fan of michelle pfiefer as catwoman because she really knew how to handle the duality with subtlety, whereas hally berry was to obvious and sometimes irritating. the plot and premise was okey, but there was less action and too ..much jumping.
Monster i don’t know if anyone’s watched this, but i was finally able to watch it this weekend, and it was such a sad reality that dealt with the dregs of society that are left along the sidelines, never ever really being able to escape the trappings of soci…(read more)etal hierarchy. it made me wonder if choices really are possible for those who have been left with nothing and nothing is expected from them except the basest form of living. Disturbing…but it’s one of those movies that linger…makes you think.
i first saw this movie when i was in my preteens. looking back, i believe this might have been the film that started my fascination with fantastical movies (and the once dashing tom cruise). for a 90’s movie, the movie was visually beautiful, comical, and you just couldn’t help but feel involved with some of the different characters. and if you’ve seen tim curry in annie and shuddered,you’ll feel even more disgusted with Legend.
i’m a fan of maya rudolf, but for a debut movie, she wasn’t too compelling, or even funny. it really wasn’t my type of humor. the preface was seemingly interesting, but the whole storyline was idiotic. it was pretty much appropriately titled. it seemed like a really low budget film, and some parts of it just didn’t make sense. for example, for such an idiotic community, how were they able to work and maintain the high tech machines in the future?
