Just saw 300 and I must say that I was extremely impressed.

This is easily the best war movie I have ever seen and I've seen quite a few. I honestly don't know how any man who is in to war movies could not like this film. The fights were awesome as well as the emotion in the movie...but what truly made the movie amazing was the graphics. If you've seen Sin City you know what I'm talking about. I wasn't sure how they would incorporate it in..but man, what an incredible movie. I would recommend the movie to anyone except for children of course due to the violence and nudity in some spots of the movie. The midnight showing sold out and it was in one of those giant theaters that can hold well over 300 people.

Saw "Breach". Very good movie. Simple plot, not much action, but the acting was really good and it was just an enjoyable movie. Not as good as Zodiac though

I just came home from seeing 300.

The simplest way I can describe it is: Stylized Testosterone.

I enjoyed it pretty well.

The coolest thing though? The surprise I got off the bat: A new Spider-Man 3 trailer! And I loved it! The beginning and the closing bit make it awesome.

Black Snake Moan - A pretty good movie and an overall feel-good story although there are some racy themes. Samuel L is once again awesome and plays a mean guitar. Ricci is, um, a ho (hot nonetheless). Gets kind of cliche in parts but still pretty original and moving. Recommended.

300

Took a while to get going, but I was just giddy the last 30 minutes or so. It's like the coolest video game ever.

Didn't love the Spiderman trailer, though. Maybe being bombarded by Shade's avatars every day for the last year have desensitized me to the whole Venom thing.

Casino Royale - One of the best bond flicks

Blood Diamond - it was as good as the expectations I had. I'd say it was moving.

Eragon - It felt like it wanted to be something liek LOTR/Gladiator/etc - but failed to reach it because you just didn't care about the enemy.

The Holiday - I guess you can call it a total chick flick...but it wasn't as irritating....

Stranger than Fiction - it was a good movie; but felt a bit longer than it should've been.

Harsh Times - I had high hopes as I was informed that it is similar to Training Day - only better...It was similar to Training Day a little bit...but definitely not as good.

Night at the Museum - had very low expectations considering some of the harsh critism I've heard about it...but overall it was a good suprise...felt a bit like Jumanji...

Rocky Balboa a bit too dramatic but brought back a lot of nostalgia....

I just watched it myself and I see what you mean. From the reviews I expected a little better. Not that it wasn't better than the past 3-4 Rocky's but the plot strained credibility enough that it took away from the impact. His age to supposedly be doing this was distracting. Also, the movie spent a lot of time letting us get to know Rocky here in the modern day, and how he got here. And it certainly caught us up on his life but the decision to go back into boxing, the work to get a license, the covergence of ideas that allowed the final fight to be staged, the training, etc... all seemed to happen in a flash. It happened so fast it appeared TOO easy (IMHO) which didn't make Rocky seem like all that much of an underdog (except for his age of course). I would've like to have seen him struggle more with the idea of getting back in the ring to begin with and what immediately led to that. I would've liked to have seen more hardships in training. Maybe some setbacks and doubt. Something so you really felt for the road he took to get back in the ring for this one fight.

Lastly... I'd say Stallone waited 5-10 years too long to do this one. The plot could've been a little more believable if Stallone had looked a little younger.

But all that said... it certainly has more in common (as far as quality) with the first one rather than the last one.

Reign On Me- I thought it was really good. I am a big Adam Sandler fan, so I probably enjoyed it more than most would. He and Cheadle did a wonderful job. But, unless you went in knowing it was going to be enjoyable because it has Sandler in it, i would say to wait on the DVD. But, if you're a big fan too, go see it today.

I saw "The Lookout" today. A really, really good movie. It just goes to show you that if you build the characters first and then add in the action, it is just much more suspenseful - because you really care about characters. Why don't more movie makers realize this.

I highly recommend this movie.

Here is a clip for Ebert and Roeper - you have to find the Lookout in the now playing section. Although you might not want to watch the clips because it gives parts of the movie away. Just a fantastic movie though

I got to see a sneak of Grindhouse last night, and I loved it. It's just the kind of cheesy, over-the-top, gore-infested, B-movie madness that is fun to watch, and the spoof previews were awesome. It did a great job of emulating those old 80's horror flicks, so if you're a fan of those, or have a good sense of humor, I highly recommend watching it. :thumbsup:

I thought Grindhouse was awesome. It's one of the best movies I've seen this year and definitely one of QT's best movies. Lots of cheesy but cool looking gore and 2 crazy storylines. Needless to say, It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire movie..especially the second movie with Kurt Russel. That was freaking hilarious.

I thought the first half of the movie was better in terms of the action and general coolness, but the second movie had a thrilling story line.

I saw Grindhouse this evening. It was OK; this kind of movie(s) isn't really my thing. I liked the QT half better, but the RR half was more fun. The fake trailers were a riot though. Don't. :D How about the trampoline in Thanksgiving? :eek:

My favorite moment from the trailer for Grindhouse is my favorite in the film now that I saw what the exclamation point to that moment is: "This car is 100% death-proof. But to get the benefit of it honey, you really need to be sittin' in my seat. *slams breaks*" Plus the expression on his face as he says it is great.

By the way, regarding Grindhouse...

It's being speculated that during Death Proof, the last half of the film actually takes place BEFORE the first half of it.

To me, it makes sense and I like it. First of all, I didn't think I saw a scar on Stuntman Mike's face during the last half, which he clearly has earlier in the movie. Secondly, he's a stone-cold killer in the first half, but a ***** in the second half. It would make sense that that takes place first and it is that experience (being shot, being roughed up in the car, getting in a crash, getting beat up, etc.) that toughens/hardens him up for what happens later for him, earlier for us. That would mean his scar is from Rosario's heel and that simply hurt him very badly but didn't kill him. I like this theory a lot actually. It would also mean that the order it is presented makes it a female-empowering film, but chronologically it becomes a male-empowering film.

I think he has the scar in the second half. I did notice that his personality was completely different, so I thought maybe it was Stuntman Bob, so I was looking for that scar. However, if it's there it's a lot less prominent.

"Bobby"

Very good movie. Most of the characters were fictionalized, but it still was very good. RFK's speeches that they aired were poignant.


"Grease 2"

One of the worst movies ever made. End of story. Period.


"Rocky Balboa"

Enjoyable. Somewhat anti-climactic. A better end to the Rocky franchise than that piece of crap fifth movie was. The whole getting into shape and training seemed rushed.


"Slither"

"Disturbia" - it was OK, but I felt old watching it. Would have enjoyed it more when I was 16 years old.

"The Hoax" - very good. Gere's performance was excellent and it was an enjoyable to watch.

"Fracture" Ryan Gosling is a fantastic actor and he is very good in this movie. Anthony Hopkins is always good. Plot was OK. Movie was pretty good, and it was fun to watch the actors, but the plot was just OK.


Of these three movies, I'd rank them this way.

1) Hoax
2) Fracture
3) Distubia

I think I would have enjoyed the movie if I were deaf (or just really really old) but the dialogue and everything sad little thing out of Topher Grace and Kirsten Dunce (Dunst?) was so bad that the only way to cope with it was to laugh at it. Just such bad development, which we saw in the earlier movies. The difference here is that the villians in the third movie are some punk skinny kid and some ex-WWE star while the villian in the second movie was Alfred Molina. There was some nobility and grace involved with the second movie's conlcusion; this just was well Jim O'Brien.....just kidding. JO's aight. Spiderman 3 was not. And at least Pirates was purposely funny. P-sign.

Whoever played the Sandman guy still did a better job that Topher but didn't exactly bring great acting or creativity to the role. It was mostly the director's fault but the guy wasn't exactly believable in any realm of his character.

Knocked Up was pretty funny.

I enjoyed it. A nice cameo by Ryan Seacrest and James Franco. The older sister did have a reason for being such a b**ch. Her husband was lying to her and sneaking out doing fun things, while she was home with the kids. The husband/wife did not know each other very well. He sneaked out to see a movie; he didn't even know she liked that same movie. I know he wanted time to himself, but he should have been honest with her. In the end, that was the story.

Seth Rogen is hilarious, though. The whole pregnant sex thing was hilarious too.

A good summer comedy.

Hicks
06-03-2007, 10:38 PM
See, the thing is, the first thing I see between those two is the wife being a controlling, insulting (literally), condescending ***** to her husband. Later she talks of "training" him. So when I find out later he's sneaking out to get some alone time, I'm thinking, "No **** he wants time alone; if not for the kids I'd be amazed he hasn't left her ***".

I saw "Knocked up" and I must admit I rarely go see these type of movies - still haven't seen 40 Year Old Virgin. And I also must admit for whatever reason I don't generally enjoy going to see comedies at least not in the theaters - I enjoy them more at home. Something about everyone else laughing at stuff I don't find very funny - or some people who seemingy laugh very loudly just because they feel they can - it all gets on my nerves.

As for "Knocked Up". It was funny - it was entertaining - but it was too long - it got on my nerves - if one more character would have started on a long and loud screaming fit, I might have walked out - I mean is that what passes as humor now-a-days - just so much yelling and screaming - one diatribe after another. It all just wore me out and I was glad when it was over.

Having said that there were some funny scenes - but I certainly like more subtle humor. For example the two scenes when the main female in the movie was in talking to her bosses (in the office) and the other female in the scenes was taking very subtle but direct shots at her - I thought those two scenes were very funny. In fact those were the best scenes in the movie. Most of the time less is more.

I did enjoy the cameos and loved seeing so many characters from "Freeks and Geeks" and "the Office"

Seth Rogen really got on my nerves. Sure he did a nice job coming across as an average dufus sort of a guy - but I don't think he's funny and his friends - were way too over the top for me.

(I hesitate to mention this because it really isn't about the movie) - but when did pot smoking become common place in movies - yes I realize it shows it in a negative light for the most part - Ok enough of that - this isn't the thread for it.

Overall I'd give the movie a C

It was too much of a chick flick. Couples walked away happy but regular dudes walked out with something to be desired. An aspect of the humor that was missing, and I know this mention will excite the admins, was the lack of minority characters and their humor that was present in 40 or the Office and other comedy.

Batman Begins. Can't wait for The Dark Knight.

can't agree more. it's nice to have a franchise like this with genuine filmmaking talent (nolan, bale, etc.).

PAN'S LABYRINTH
really not a fantasy fan typically, but i really enjoyed this film. sadly i passed up a free screening back in december and never got around to watching it until now (i think it was given all the hype and my contrarian nature). but i thought it was quite well done, certainly unique... i really wasn't familiar with del toro's work before but i came away fairly impressed. A

CHILDREN OF MEN
another spanish writer/director i wasn't very familiar with (not a harry potter fan, but i knew of y tu mama tambien) and came away equally impressed. i will qualify this by saying i haven't read the book. i really enjoyed clive owen's performance and the action sequences (especially the impressive long takes... I'm not entirely sure how they managed to shoot the driving attack scene but it was creative). A

CASINO ROYALE
truth be told, i was disappointed in the choice of daniel craig. i had long been hoping for the previously mentioned clive owen to play bond (especially considering the new darker direction they were to take bond). i had also been quite a fan of pierce brosnan (although i found die another day fairly terrible... not because of pierce's performance but just about everything else). all of that being said, i was really impressed by daniel craig and while some may argue that he wasn't the best choice out there, i think he does a fantastic job. it was certainly the most enjoyable bond since Goldeneye (which could mean i have a martin campbell fetish...). anyway, i take back my disappointment with the bond selection. much like bale as batman, this is a totally fresh take on bond with a very talented and enjoyable actor.

Fantastic Four: ...

I avoided the first movie like the plague, because I heard how awful it was, and I never really had any exposure to the franchise as a kid, so I didn't care. I eventually saw it a couple months ago, with rock-bottom expectations, and was pleasantly surprised. Sure, I can see why the fans were upset, but I enjoyed it in a mindless sort of way.

Anyway, saw the sequel last night, and again, not horrible. It's ridiculous, but I enjoyed the humor, the FX were pretty damn good, and then there's Jessica Alba in the most form-fitting wedding dress I've ever seen. :drool:

I liked it quite a bit better than Flags of Our Fathers. I just thought it was better put together.

This movie started off as a troubled high school in LA - with gang violence/etc...

and then the teacher was like - you think you're so tough - you guys aren't even a real gang...you guys are fighting over for towns...the real gang took over countries...and yada-yada-yada ended up going into WWII and the Holocaust...it's one thing to watch a movie like Schindler's List and get the image behind it...but it is another to see it installed in a movie about troubled kids in the ghetto...

The two biggest exceptions I can think of are Godfather 2 and X2.

Aliens! I think Aliens is the best followed by Alien. The others are crap. Alien vs Predator is worse then crap.

Same here. "The Empire Strikes Back" is still EASILY the best Star Wars movie IMO. I love the dark atmosphere and feeling it has.

Been to the "Zodiac" yesterday evening with a girlfriend. GREAT MOVIE! Very good suspense, build up, acting, music, story, etc. I 'm definitely going to get this on DVD when it comes out.

Mourning: seems like we tend to like the same movies. "Zodiak" was a great movie - another movie to look for is "Lookout" those are the two best movies I've seen this year. i think you'd like "Lookout"

As far as sequels go, Empire strikes back is the best of the 6 movies, Godfather 2 - although I still like the original one better and same thing with T2 which was a good movie, but the original Terminator was better.

Speed2 might have been the worst movie I've ever seen, and I loved Speed.
I reallyliked Mission Impossible - the first one, the second and third one I did not like.

The only other sequal that I can think of that was better than the original was Aliens - but that movie came out about 7 or 8 years later.

i thought Bourne Supremacy was better than Bourne Identity.
Batman Begins was much better the original (and most certainly the other three)

you can't just write all sequels off... it all depends on how they're done. seom should never have seen the light of day (the whole ten yards... seriously wtf???), others like godfathers and the two i mentioned were worthy of being made.

i've always hated the argument that hollywood is so redundant - because everything is like that. the music industry, food industry, the internet, television... if you were to really break it down, whats the difference between applebee's, fridays, o'charleys, ruby tuesdays? not a whole lot. obviously specific menu items but they all shop at the same "wall kitsch decor" outlet store and offer essentially same types of food. its all redundant. just like films aren't exactly the same, different actors, scripts but its a similar premise or storyline...

the only way that the redundant patterns impact you is if you keep deciding to frequent or attend the redundant films, restaurants, etc. There are some great unique restaurants out there, there are some fantastic new films being made, great music, great television... you just have to make the choice to find it.

anyway, two movies i just watched...

This Film Is Not Yet Rated
An entertaining and interesting documentary examining the MPAA and examining how and why films are rated the way they are (and more specifically, by who). They talk about violence being deemed more appropriate than sex, whether this group is a censorship organization, and the filmmaker hires a private detective to find out more about the studios controlling the MPAA and who the voting members are. Here is a trailer for the film (http://youtube.com/watch?v=UTL3XMDwY0c) and here is a clip that explains (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fzPqb6wCok) the each level of rating. A-

A Face in the Crowd
This 1957 film by Elia Kazan (who directed On the Waterfront, Streetcar Named Desire, etc.) was Andy Griffith's film debut, Walter Mathau is in it as well. Its a satire about fame, media manipulation and megalomania. Essentially this hillbilly 'Lonesome' Rhodes is discovered in prison by a radio reporter looking for colorful characters. Rhodes gains a populist appeal from his radio appearances and it propels him into national stardom with a television show. He eventually becomes a front for business and political interests using his seemingly subversive appeal to connect with the common audience. Here is a clip (http://youtube.com/watch?v=PcW0DagQAIc).

Hooligan's - The Untold Story. Really an outstanding documentary by the BBC on English soccer fans during the last World Cup in Germany. Suffice to say a lot of World War II animosities still persist in Europe, or at least are brought to the surface when some fans mix their soccer passions with large quantities of brew. A fascinating up close look at crowd behavior even if you don't like the sport. The whole thing is available on Google video:

Ratatouille - A pretty funny movie with a good story. Pixar still does the best animation job by far. While enjoying the movie, I found myself also enjoying how well it looked on the screen. Theri eye for detail made the fun story that much better. I would recommend it for those with or without kids. It has enough to entertain all.

Pirates 3: At World's End - The 3 hours were worth it. But please don't try to go see it without watching the first two...

Evan Almighty - Funny. Short. But funny. I think Bruce Almighty was funnier, but thats because Jim Carey was in it. But it surprised me that there is actually a sequel that you don't have to see the first one to understand.

Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer - Too short. The movie itself, without previews and credits, was like less than an hour long. The ending sucked. But other than that, it was alright. FYI, I personally think if you didn't see the first one, you will be lost.

Batman Begins wasn't a sequel; it was a reboot.
Exactly.

And the rule with sequels IMO is the same as the rule with all films - who produces, who directs, who writes, who acts. If those are good you're gonna be okay.

No coincidence that Lucas brought in great writers for Empire, then dumped them for Jedi and onward. Coppola simply did the rest of the book for Godfather 2, thus being a "dead heat" which most agree with I think.

Cameron in his prime did both Aliens and T2 and it shows.

Now Dawn of the Dead better than Night of...no way and I still sorta like the original Dawn, but Night of was brilliant work by Romero. The remake of Dawn was fantastic IMO and better than the original.

People get too hung up on remakes and sequels like they are inherently bad things. They aren't. The problem is that studios and exec producers (ie the money not the hands-on producers) USE and ABUSE the franchise name to make a quick buck most of the time. Put any hacks on the project and let the rep earn us some money, rather than paying to keep good talent involved in the process. Planet of the Apes is just one of many examples where it gets progressive worse this way.

Oh, and it also helps if you don't have the writers still writing the script WHILE you are filming - ie, the 2 Pirates sequels.



DHard 4 - solid action film despite some stretches on reality even by DH rules. Also DH is a great example of a sequel being terrible due to director. Hack Renny Harlin came on board for DH2 and it tanked, so they brought back McTieren for 3 and it showed (though its been rough for him since then).

Ghost Rider - bland direction, uneven acting by Cage though he is cast well, spotty plot points that ruin an otherwise good story...most of that was saved by some great visual FX and art direction. Sad that they got the toughest part right (his look and behavior) and blew just about everything else. This is the same guy that did Daredevil and Electra and it shows.

Black Snake Moan - if you liked Hustle and Flow you should love this. I was very happy with this modern southern folk tale and I love how he keeps sneaking this heartwarming relationships underneath a surface of depravity and apparent exploitation. The way this film was advertised plays on that exploitation without the slightest hint about it's heart.

1408 - nice to see a rare good King story on film, in large part thanks to Cusak's effort. Still has touches of King-camp to the story, but at least it's not about alien ghosts who are creating monsters in a lab but lose control of them when gov't bio-weapons are used (maybe just 1 premise at a time there Steve, okay).

I have a confession to make.

I broke down and saw a sequel last night and it wasn't half bad. Really I had no choice, when you decide to go to a movie in the middle of this horrible summer movie season you have no real choice but to see a sequel especially when the person you go to the movie with says I've never heard of 1408 - it can't be any good.

Saw "Die Hard 4" last night that is what I call it anyway. And really it wasn't bad. I'd say it wasn't as good as the first "Die Hard" (which is clearly wasn't) but it was better than the 2nd or 3rd "Die Hard" but I really don't know that since I didn't see those two movies.

The action was way over-the-top, but I thought it had some funny lines and the correct tone as it didn't take itself too seriously.

So that wasn't half bad.

Second confession: I saw a Micheal Bay movie last night also. Of course I didn't know it was a Michael Bay movie until about half-way through and what can you do then, be a jerk and demand the movie be shut off, or leave in a tizzy saying I refuse to see Michael Bay movies.

The movie was "the Island" from a couple of years ago, we started watching it and either I missed the opening credits or just spaced it. But the first 1/3 of the movie didn't seem like a Michael Bay movie, but all of a sudden when they escaped the underground what ever you call it and it started doing that Michael bay thing, I turned to my friend and said, "wait is this a Michael Bay movie, it has to be I'm getting whiplash and a headache" to which he said to me, "what is a Michael Bay movie" At that point I decided to say nevermind and make the best of the situation. So I sat through it and tried to enjopy it as best I could. A regretful decision on my part.

Ghost Rider - It's unfortunate that this was a semi-enjoyable movie that could have been much more. The dialogue was bland and unimaginative and the actors were very stiff, other than the bad guys & Elliott. Cage was weak and Eva Mendez was horrible - could have taken an attractive cardboard cutout, hooked up a tape recorder and it would have offered as much to this movie as she did. Worth seeing? I guess - but I was left with a, "Is that it?" feeling.

Black Snake Moan - Interesting movie and seeing Ricci in her underwear the entire show (except when she was out of it) was't bad. And I always like Samuel L. The only thing I thought it lacked was setting Samuel L up as more of a tortured soul than he was - one of the deleted scenes should have been included which would have added a lot - the one about his ex's pregnancy. Also, the Reverand's character could have been expanded - good flick though.

Essentially, it was a "dark" version of the TV show, right down to the literal sense of charcoal and black suits instead of pink, white and blue. And I was particularly impressed by how strong and detailed the "drug bust" story was. Colin and Jamie Foxx made a good, although a lot different, Crockett and Tubbs.

As far as Michael Mann movies go, it wasn't as good as Heat or Last of the Mohicans, but better than Collateral and Ali (which I liked a lot, though I hear most people didn't).

Here is some info on Lookout from Rotten tomatoes


And here is what I wrote about it back in March when I saw it in the theaters

saw "The Lookout" today. A really, really good movie. It just goes to show you that if you build the characters first and then add in the action, it is just much more suspenseful - because you really care about characters. Why don't more movie makers realize this.

I highly recommend this movie.

Here is a clip for Ebert and Roeper - you have to find the Lookout in the now playing section. Although you might not want to watch the clips because it gives parts of the movie away. Just a fantastic movie though

I really liked Collateral until the taxi flipped. It was almost a literal representation of a movie jumping the shark. After that, the whole thing was just pretty ridiculous and unbelievable.

As for Miami Vice, I agree somewhat about both the girls. Not sure which you're referring too, but the whole part with the Asian woman and them scurrying off to Havana for like two days and falling in love was a little ridiculous and definitely longer than it needed to be. I wasn't buying Sonny Crockett falling in love with some random chick that runs a drug empire and has a weird multi-ethnic past anyway, so at least keep it under 20 minutes of mohito drinking, making out and long camera shots of their wet hair.

But that was the only problem I had with the whole flick, so I'll forgive it.

Well both chicks were annoying, but the Asian one :puke:... IF she would have been pretty, maybe I could have overlooked the other elements you mentioned in your post, but IMO she wasn't and I thought it was a pretty major part of the movie, so I am definitely holding it against the movie, together with amongst other things the total lack of a good and decent plot.

Please explain on how you would have done some of the things "better" or different.

First and foremost, better robot designs. Not blocky G1-type designs, but something slightly less resembling a mech or a combination of random shifting metal pieces that don't appear to actually transform into anything.

NO PRIME LIPS!!!

I'd have also had a bit less humor. Humor is good, but they went overboard with it in places.

NO PRIME LIPS!!!

Frank Welker as Megatron, rather than Hugo Weaving. Welker has a more alien voice and would have fit the character of Megs much better. Weaving didn't add anything memorable to the character.

NO PRIME LIPS!!!

More reasonable reactions from humans' first contact with the TFs. Nobody seemed to take them seriously at all, instead opting for cracking joke after joke ("It must be Japanese!" or "Are you the tooth fairy?").

And, of course, NO PRIME LIPS!!!!!! :mad:

The CG, however, was fantastic, as was the animation. I'd make no changes there at all.

Michael Bay should only direct action sequences and leave the rest to a real director. Maybe it's out of my age group at this point but the racial/social schticks that he's used since well forever is gettin really tired and bothersome at this point.

The fact that it's a "popcorn" movie can't excuse it's plotholes, its crappy dialouge and poor pacing. The action scenes were fantastic though and I enjoyed them really well.

License to Wed- Awful. Robin Williams was the only good thing in it.

Sicko- Amazing. I know a lot of people aren't Michael Moore fans, but I have to say that I really like this movie. For all of his flaws Moore really is a master story teller. In this one he is also in it a lot less, putting the camera more his well us. Highly recommended. Any Moore film that both the New York Times and FOX NEWS can both like has to be good.

I'm going to rent Life Is Beautiful today and watch it. I'm expecting a lot out of it.

I'll rent Diehard 1 once summer school lets out. ;)

Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny

I expected better to be honest, but my expectations were very high. I already knew the music as well, maybe that wasn't such a good thing.

Please explain the "racial/social schticks" part of the above. As well as the plotholes. Thanks!

I guess you thought Eurotrip was also a stupid movie...

I never bothered to see Eurotrip.

i guess it had to do with you becoming a teacher - and the way they showed the teacher got to you on a level that i would not be able to understand...correct?

That was one thing, but not the only thing. It felt like almost all the humans in the movie were either below 100 in IQ, immature (or both), or may as well have introduced themselves as follows:

"Hi, I'm the black guy!"
"Hi, I'm the latino guy!"
"Hi, I'm the dorky white guy!"
"Hi, I'm the heroic white guy!"
"I'm a politician!"
"I'm the jock!"
"I'm the girl who acts shallow, but just wait!"

The only guy I remotely cared about was Shia LaBeouf's character. I kind of like that actor; I see now why Spielberg likes him.

when its a movie that is supposed to be about Robots...they decided to take a shortcut with the human characters...
as I've mentioned before though - i personally would've loved it if they developed the robot's characters a lot more...

And the vast majority of humans don't in some way fall under one of those two categories? Just kidding or am I...
