Madagascar 2 Enjoyable.
Madagascar 2 Enjoyable.
pretty good. Too many flashbacks and too many plot twists for my liking. Those interrupted the flow too often. Other than that - the movie was pretty good - some really good scenes - but just too disjointed. There were some great performances though and overall entertaining, but it could have been better
Quantum of Solace
Loved it. The plot took me a little while to catch on, due to this is the first Bond movie that I could recall being a sequel.
I came across No Country for Old Men on some channel this past weekend and watched it for probably the 4th time.
I discovered that I I've made peace with this movie. With surprise gone I find that I am left to enjoy the exchanges and interactions in this film and I am no longer stung by it's jarring deficiencies.
Time will be kind to this movie.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
This review is based off of a workprint of the movie, so the special effects were incomplete and at least some of the music was used as a placeholder (though it all seemed to fit pretty well).
I thought it was pretty good. Certainly better than X3 (which I actually liked), and not too much worse than the first two films. I thought Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool was perfect, though I was shocked bySpoiler:
I felt like the Blob and Gambit were a little off, probably due to the choice of actors, but neither of them were terrible. Blob was probably a little more spot-on than Gabit, IMO.
8.5/10*, based on the workprint. I'll reevaluate after I see the completed version.
I could not possibly be more excited for Wolverine.
I just hope you're not a Deadpool fan. I think there is going to be a lot of ire concerning how he is handled in the film.
Oh, and this may be Hugh Jackman's best performance so far. He was amazing.
Kill Bill Vol. 1- Good ol fashioned butt kicking
Eh, not as bad as what I expected. Still not a great movie though...
Fast and Furious.
Ok from a movie stand point it probably wasnt good, but I didnt see it for that reason. I thought it was the best of the series. The cars were awesome (got rid of the cheesey rice), ladies were hot, driving scenes were pretty sweet. Acting and plot? eh, but i enjoyed it for the reasons i listed.
Yeah, a couple buddies and I went and saw it (Fast and Furious). Thought it was probably the best of the series. Take that for what you will. Definitely had the best cars of the series. The Skyline was probably the cleanest import they've had.
Sure the plot was a little too out there and simplistic, but man the middle stretch was thrilling and suspenseful.
Speaking of, National Treasure- Good, fun movie
I don't know if any of you have seen the HBO movie called Taking Chance but you should. Amazing movie with Kevin Bacon.
Saw Fast and Furious yesterday, and I loved it. Thought it was, as most others do, the best movie of the series. Though as mentioned above, the plot was different from the other three movies. This time, there was a defined plot from the very beginning and you knew what was going on.
Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder
Bleh, they took the weakest storyline of the four with the weakest jokes of the four, and slapped on a token series ending scene. Really disappointing...
Bedtime Stories - This movie was very fun. Probably the best Adam Sandler movie yet.
Observe & Report....
Um, had a few moments of being entertaining. I'll just go ahead and say that if you like Eastbound & down you probably are going to like this movie as well.
Definately a "type" of humor that you probably either get or don't.
I didn't hate the movie but I can't say I loved it either.
It was very mixed in what it wanted to be IMO.
You really really have to suspend disbelief in this film though.
