Ok, here's some new reviews:

We Have

The Descent

Monkey Business

The Thief Lord

The Ringer

Super Mario Brothers

Hoot

The Cheetah Girls 2

Lets see lets see...

The Descent:
A horror movie. Was it scary? Yes. Well, Scary enough. The creatures were good and creepy and the blood and gore were just enough to keep my stomach barely in check. My only problem with this flick is that I really couldn't care less about all the backstory. I was ready for the blood gore and creepy creatures about 15 minutes in, but I had to wait almost an hour. I was ready to MOVE ON ALREADY! GET TO THE HORROR!
my advice, wait till it's available on dvd/video, and then fastforward through all the boring character developement.

Monkey Business:
Why is Marilyn Monroe billed as the star of this movie? She had a relatively small part. This bothers me. Other than that, I did love this movie. It's just so much fun. The acting is great, in a way that acting just never manages these days. Cary Grant and Ginger Roberts play 20 year olds and 10 year olds so well, you almost believe that that cute little monkey really did mix up some age-defying formula. Its so much fun, and so wholesome it makes your teeth ache... in a good way.

The Thief Lord:
Was it as good as Harry Potter? No. Was it as horrible as some kids movies out there? Hell No. This was a really fun movie. The little kids starring in it are great little actors. It wasn't extremely memorable, but good enough to be worth the watch.

The Ringer:
This is one of my favorite movies of the past year. it sounds so offensive when you hear the premise: Johnny Knoxville pretends to be retarded to rig the special olympics... But it is so much fun. The guys in the S.O. with him are awesome, and just reinforce the idea that special needs people are amazing. They deserve respect and adoration and that's what this movie gives them, all the bad shit happens to Knoxville, no small part of which can be attributed to the horrible, offensive uncle Gary (played fabulously by Brian Cox). This movie is funny and fun.

Super Mario Brothers:
This movie is so bad is fabulous. John Leguizamo as the love-struck Luigi Mario, and Bob Hoskins in a slightly less-dignified than usual role as Mario Mario. Dennis Hopper plays King Koopa, one evil, egg sucking son of a snake. Some cute blonde chick plays princess Daisy. My favorites are Yoshi and the Goombas. My favorite scene is in the elevator, when Luigi makes the Goombas dance. This movie is just a classic, and no matter how bad it is sometimes, it's just not right for anyone to have not seen it.

Hoot:
A very cute kids movie. I was waiting for the main character to admit to being gay, but other than that it was serious-issue free. The moral, that all creatures great and small deserve to be protected, yay environment, boo selfish pancake builders. It was cute, and it's great to watch with the kids. Parents won't be bored out of their brains, and the kids will enjoy it.

The Cheetah Girls 2:
Great music. Decent actresses. Fun Story. It's a disney channel original movie. I shouldn't even be admitting to watching it.

Ok, that's it for now. I plan to watch V for Vendetta in the next few days, and I really want to make it to theaters to see Tallidega Nights, Accepted, Little Miss Sunshine, Invincible, and maybe (just maybe) snakes on a plane

That's all for now

Subject:Loverboy
Posted by:fyiagcg.
Time:1:16 am.
Mood: cranky.
Tonight I watched Loverboy, (loverboy loverboy) a great overlooked 80's flick starring Patrick Dempsey (can't buy me love, anyone?)
I love this movie. With Dempsey as a more or less clueless college kid who suddenly gets to become a man-ho (but way better than rob schneider ever was) all in order to get back the love of his life... gettin hot and heavy with the likes of kirstie alley and carrie fischer...
His dad thinks he's gay, and his mom ends up calling him for a pizza with 'extra anchovies'

Its just plain fun, little brain use. It made me laugh a couple times, and reminded me why I love 80s movies.

Check it out, if you've never seen it. And if you have seen it, give it another watch, it's worth it!

Subject:Saturday Night life
Posted by:fyiagcg.
Time:10:09 pm.
Mood: nauseated.
Yesterday:
Ah, Orlando Bloom. He is just so goddamn cute. He was cute as the stupid pussy little son of a bitch that gets his brother killed in Troy, so when he plays a character that you actually like, he's just damned loveable. In Elizabethtown, the British heartthrob makes a mistake bigger than getting his arse kicked and letting Eric Bana die : he plays an american. He ditches the British you-know-you-want-to-shag-me Accent and I missed it very much. Once you get past the seperation anxiety about the accent - best seen in Pirates of the Carribean (in which the character rules, too), This movie is enjoyable. Kirsten Dunst plays an obnoxious, adorable, interesting character and you actually care about what happens to the characters. All of the acting is really good, the story is relatable, the script is at times funny, at times dramatic. I will admit, I was confused, all the way through the end, about just what the relationship between our two main characters was, but it was fun. Obscure, Choppy 'falling in love' stuff is almost too difficult to follow, but that's just what makes it more like life and less like a contrived movie experience. Susan Sarandon tap dances, and that makes absolutely no sense to me. The portrayal of Kentucky was deliciously spot on, and all of the family interactions were cute. What did i think of the soundtrack? I'll let you know when, oh excuse me, IF i ever get freebird out of my head.

I'm not sure what I should label the link for the next movie I watched last night. I rented Apartment 12, but it was released and listed on IMDb as Life/Drawing. Mark Ruffalo stars in some movie that was actually released back in 2001. Why, then is it newly released on DVD this past week? Something tells me that the arrival of Just Like Heaven, and that makes sense. He really is a good actor, if not extremely well known, and it's good to get this movie out while his name is on people's minds. It's a small, super low budget independent movie and most folks wouldnt give it a second glance. This is, mostly, a mistake. The movie is original, for the most part. Mark Ruffalo's tortured artist who isn't in the groove isn't quite a new role. But other than that there's some interesting ideas that I havent seen explored before. You meet someone who lives in your building, something happens. Great, you live right there. It ends. Uh Oh. This is more or less what the back jacket of the dvd promised me and, though it is a large part of the movie, it's not really what the focus is. The characters are all so much fun, especially the annoying landlord and the creepy spam-cooking neighbor. The main girl is also well played, though I've never seen or heard of her before. Then again, the only person involved in this project that I knew of was Ruffalo. That was enough for me.

Today:
It's weird, the sheer amount of movies out there that you never hear about. Take Cake, for example. It's not an extremely unknown cast; Heather Graham, of Austin Powers and Say It Isnt So (who manages to not play a bimbo, convincingly); David Sutcliffe, who I know best from Gilmore Girls (and is so cute); Taye Diggs - a very sexy brother with some great arms and abs; and Sandra Oh, who is very funny in the movies I've seen her in - Princess Diaries being my favorite as well as Sideways. The plot wasn't completely original or surprising, but it was executed nicely. Heather Graham's anti-marriage sprouting party child is cute, if lacking much depth. The romances are sweet though not shocking. I personally liked the girlfriend-friendships, expecially between the two chicks mentioned. It's worth a watch, but I'm pretty glad I didn't know that this movie existed in theaters, cuz it might not be quite worth the cinema-going ordeal, but I did enjoy watching it.

Now:

Right Now, I'm watching The Green Mile on ABC. It's edited for tv, so the more horrific parts of the botched electrocution parts werent shown, but other than that and some language, it was a pretty tame R-rated movie. I'm pretty sure that it's also not going to show how Wild Bill killed those two little girls or how John Coffee found them. Again, some pretty brutally graphic images so I might not be so sorry to miss them. Oh, how I hate Percy, and oh, how I hate Wild Bill (love that actor, Sam Rockwell). Somehow, I didn't realize (I'm sure I knew at some point) this is based on a Steven King story. Seems pretty obvious to me, now. The characters, the morals, the weird things flying out of John Coffee's mouth when he heals and whatnot. It's very Steven King. This is an amazing Tom Hanks role. This is the kind of film that deserves to be nominated for (and win!) Oscars. The acting feels real and compelling, the story is unsettlingly profound, and the way it looks is absolutely beautiful. This film makes me cry every time, although lucky for me we haven't reached the part that makes me sob yet. This is one of those movies where, even when it's on TV and it's edited for time and content, and there's commercial breaks after every big thing... I can't stop watching it.

ok, here we go with some actual reviews...

Just Tonight, I went and saw Fun With Dick and Jane. As happens with comedies (and dramas, to be honest), the funniest parts were in the trailers. I feel okay now that I didn't rush out to watch it right away, but I'm glad I got to see it. Jim Carrey can't quite pull off ::not:: funny, so all in all he was enjoyable to watch. Tea Leoni has bugged me in the past, but I liked her in this. The humour's funny and it isn't overabundantly physical comedy. The dialogue is, at times, very fun. "I think... we should have sex... Saturday." Oh, it was great. All in all, worth watching.

Earlier in the week i rented You Stupid Man. I really hate Denise Richards and she was sufficiently stupid and skanky for my tastes. Turns out I really like Milla Jovovich (who plays another awesomely wacky chick in Dummy. I haven't watched the Resident Evil films, so I'm not judging her based on those, but rather the heart that she gives to the characters I've seen. She's wacky and talkative and, as in Dummy, keeps the movie going at the slower parts. I didn't realize it when I glanced at the coverart while renting it, but the main male character is also an actor whose work i've enjoyed. David Krumholtz is a great actor, but usually he's in less 'main' roles. He usually has a smaller part, and at times I could see why. It almost felt like he didn't feel comfortable holding the whole movie together. But all in all, his character, Owen, was played sweetly and honestly, and I definately wanted to take him home. Even though he really is a Stupid Man. My favorite part was the 'subtitles' at the end of the date... "I'll call you" (Cold Hearted Bitch!) "I'd like that" (Asshole!)... I don't think I'm doing it justice. Just know that it was perfectly executed, and very relateable.

watched at work this past weekend:

finding nemo

shrek

shark tale

I can't say which one is my favorite. I can say that Shark Tale isn't. It's funny and all, the voices are all really well done and I like how they managed to incorporate the actors looks into the fishies. The mob-ness of the Shark clan is also quite funny. There are just too many pop-culture references. It get's old after a while. I watched Hercules tonight and theres a bit with 'Air-Herk' sandals... that's funny. Shark Tale takes the idea and runs with it, never quite looking back.
Shrek and Finding Nemo battle in my mind for favourite. I love finding nemo. Ellen Degeneres is so FUCKING awesome. I love Dory and know most every line she says. I love the Turtles. There are bits there that i can't help but talk along with the movie. The sharks are so cool. The fish tank characters are all so great, with the guy from Everybody Loves Raymond as a blowfish, the girl that thinks her reflection is her 'crazy' sister, the guy that tries valiantly to say Shit. the whole ... Mine. MineMineMine... Mine... thing... makes me smile just typing it. Honestly, I think my favorite part of the whole dvd is leaving it on the Menu screen; "I'm so excited, I've always wanted to see The Little Mermaid!"..."Being a movie star would be so glamourous. Where's my trailer? I need water! Fill my trailer with water!" ... It's not that I didn't like Toy Story or Monsters Inc or all those, but I was slightly sketchy about disney. They veered from their standard (Musicals. Really great music) and I was starting to think I would never again find something to rival Little Mermaid or Beauty and the Beast (or any of the many many other great disney musicals). Finding Nemo replaced my confidence in Disney.
Too bad Chicken Little could only try (though valiantly) to be as good as this, and failed.
But Shrek, man.
Ogres have layers, Onions have layers. This movie has layers, and each time i watch it, it feels like i peel off one more layer. There are so many little things that make this movie great. The whole thing, of course, rocks... The Ogre and the Talking Donkey, the Princess who thinks it should all be done by the book, John Lithgow doind Anything... But there are so many little moments in the film, moments when i would get just a second to look up or to listen and discover something else amazing about it. I can't say enough about how much I love Shrek.


Ok, that's it for now. See ya later!

I just finished watching Melinda and Melinda, the newest from Woody Allen.
I don't know if I could say that I liked it. It didn't make me laugh out loud, it didn't make me cry. I never quite cared completely about the characters... So no, I suppose I didn't like it. It wasn't bad, it just didn't do anything for me. I might have to come to terms with the thought that I'm not a huge Woody Allen fan.

Last night I watched Stealth with Lizzy. I actually cared about the characters, and really enjoyed several parts of it. The flying was awesome, and I really wish I'd been able to see it in theaters. Josh Lucas wasn't at his best, but he was very charming and remains very cute (I love those eyes!). Jamie Foxx didn't differ much from what I usually think of his roles as. Jessica Biel was bland at times, but made an awesome 'you go girl!' impression and had the best line of the movie (also the last line): "Just say you love me, you pussy." to Josh Lucas. My favorite part of the movie watching experience was that several times (at least 3), during a 'bad-guy-go-boom' part, the following commentary could be heard from the couch:
me: damn!
Lizzy: Sucks for you.
me: That's what you get for being a bad guy!
both: Laughter
That and, us two jaded females were very bitter at the cuteness of Josh Lucas.
I liked this movie.

Scale of 1-10?
Melinda and Melinda : 4
Stealth : 7 1/2

Okie Dokie.

Let's start with the movie I just finished.

Transporter 2: I turned this movie on, not expecting much. I was therefore not dissapointed. The action sequences were just as good, if not better, than in the original. The plot is slightly less confusing (not that the first was all that confusing, but I wasn't paying much attention and thus got a bit lost). The acting was, in general, a bit better (especially the bad guy, played ridiculously in the first one and only a little badly in the second). My major problem with this is that Frank (Jason Stratham) is nowhere near as interesting a character in this sequel. In the first there is the question of good guy vs. bad guy, being in it for himself vs. other people. The conflict for Frank in the first is an enjoyable one, and I found it interesting to watch him as a reluctant saviour. In Transporter 2, he is a good guy through and through, and that makes him less interesting. He is more fun when he's a bit selfish and rather rude, rather than this altruistic child-saving martyr. I do like that he doesn't ever (i don't think) use a gun. In fact, any 'weapons' he does use tend to be of his own devices (a pole, an examination table) and it is rather enjoyable to see him fight.

also a new release, Hustle and Flow, which came out on Tuesday. I did not want to see this movie. I am a white upper-middleclass girl from California, this movie might as well have been in German. Between the southern accents and the 'scurred' instead of 'scared' dialogue, I felt like I was watching a movie in another language. This is what was going through my head in the first 20 minutes or so. I couldn't understand what they were saying half the time, through the two accent-filters. And when I did understand, it was usually words like 'fuck', 'bitch', or 'ho'. I use these words myself (well, not really ho) and understand their usage, but after a while it became frustrating for me to see these women being treated so poorly by their equally uneducated male counterparts. Djay, played by Terrence Howard, is the main character and is not the kind of character you like. He is crass, cruel, a pimp and a drug dealer. But. Yes, but... But, somehow, by the end of the movie, you are rooting for Djay to succeed. Nola, played nicely by Taryn Manning, brings heart to what you expect, at the beginning, to be a silly ho. And Shug, played by Taraji P. Henson, is painfully cowering. Quiet, scared, pregnant and cowering, even by the end, when you've seen at least some turnabout from most of the characters, she remains meek and apologetic. If you watch the extra features, you will see that the Actress is a dynamic, straightforward, freespeaking woman with opinions and cojones, making the transformation into the character all the more amazing. Terrence Howard, though, as Djay, is at all times the star of the show. He is never quite kind, never quite likeable, but somehow, despite never liking the character, I ended up caring about him in the end. His mistreatments were my mistreatments, and I was rooting for him to succeed. Again, looking at interviews with the actor show that he is a very calm, quiet, mild-mannered man, once again showing how amazing the acting skills really are.

Last night, I managed to make it into the cinema to see Cassanova. Heath Ledger glides through this performance in the seemingly effortless matter that he seems to exhibit in other movies such as Knight's Tale and 10 Things I Hate About You. He is fun to watch and oh-so-sexy (excuse my raging hormones, there) and feels fit to play the heartbreakingly charming seducer, Cassanova. He plays it well and is devilishly suave and, in turn, nervous about the thought of truly falling in love. As long as you like these kinds of easy, laid back, fun roles of his you won't be dissapointed. But if you want a real intimate portrayal by Heath Ledger, I'd recommend opting for Brokeback Mountain instead. Oliver Platt steals the show, as he usually does, as Papprizio. Perhaps because of his size, perhaps because of his character's faux assuredness, Platt can't help but be the focus in any scene he's in, despite the fact that the rest of the film feels more like a tribute to Ledger. Sienna Miller also plays her character, Francesca Bruni, well. The character is a charismatic, intelligent, defiant woman in an age where women were not allowed to be any of those things. This is not an exceedingly original character, but she is enjoyable to watch all the same. The supporting players, including Cassanova's 'man', Francesca's brother, Jeremy Irons as a heretic-hunting Pucci, and his right hand man (personally, my favorite), all do their jobs well and keep the plot moving nicely, usually providing the humourous bits.


After talking about The Impossibles earlier this week, I put on Mallrats to fall asleep to. I own this movie, having declared it mine in a small unassuming custody battle a few years ago. I love this movie and think it and Dogma would have to be my favorite Kevin Smith movies. Jason Lee is such a loveable stupid bastard that I can't help but smile, just thinking about 'stink palm'ing someone.

Why did noone tell me that Pride and Prejudice is, like, 5 and a half million hours long? I put it on before going to bed. at four in the morning I realized that this had not been a good idea. Colin Firth is as good as any fangirl has made him out to be, and the plot is great, especially when I can see how many modern movies are based on its general concepts. This was the BBC version, obviously, and I see why it's considered the best.

I have to get to work now, so if I've forgotten any, I'll post tomorrow.

Subject:at work today

Time:11:05 pm.
Mood: contemplative.
Today at Blockbuster, I was present for at least part of 3 movies.

The first was The Incredibles. I love this movie. It's cute. I came in near the part where Syndrome is discussing his evil plot. I love Jason Lee and think he is perfect in that role.

As I was leaving, Coneheads was on. The only part I really saw was the 'eating toilet paper' part. I'm not sure if this movie was appropriate to have on. We weren't allowed to watch 'the Goonies' because of the statue-penis bit. But we can watch one where they chew condoms like bubblegum? The new guy put it on. The mod said it was fine. I was leaving, so I didn't really care.

While I was working, we put on Newsies. I have watched this movie probably 2 dozen times in the past month. I am nowhere near sick of it. Some guy came in and started talking shit on it. I looked at what he had and it was a couple I'd never seen and an Anime. I had to keep reminding myself, 'he's a customer, don't talk shit back. He's a customer, be nice'
Anyway, I love Newsies. I love Christian Bale. I love when he steals the horse and rides through new york singing about Santa Fe. My favorite song is 'King of New York'. I still sing along to the line 'tomorrow they may wrap fishes in it, but I was a star for one whole minute!' The new guy, Greg, had never seen it and was glad to see it, apparently a good friend of his told him he had to watch it. And Adam, the shift leader with about as much training as shiftleader as I have, continues to love this movie. Mostly for Christian Bale I think. He's always cool with me putting it on. This is good, cuz the rest of my co-workers (all 2 of them, ok there were 3 but one's gone now) refuse to let me put it on anymore. Harumph.

Anyway, School Started, I worked, and then I met up with an old... well, she was my best friend once. So I didn't get to watch anything I have rented. I'm way too tired now. I have the afternoon off tomorrow, though, so maybe I'll watch Transporter 2, or Pride and Prejudice, or Hustle and Flow. If lizzy wants, maybe we'll watch stealth or creep. I think I should return Deliverance. I don't think I'm ever going to watch it.

I'm watching The Transporter right now. It's good.
I've never seen it before. I'm not big on action movies. But the second one comes out tuesday and i decided that if i'm going to watch it (rented it tonight), I should see the first one. So here I am, creating this community with it on. The car scenes are pretty cool and the guy - Jason Stratham - is awesome.
Right Now it's on the scene where they're rutting around in the oil and fighting... It's pretty cool. Beautifully choreographed and the trouble they're having grabbing him and his slipping and sliding are fun.

Lizzy and I watched The Exorcism of Emily Rose tonight.
It was good. I think I might have liked it better this time than I liked it in theaters. And I liked it then, too. I want to find out more about the actess that played Emily. I wonder if she's been in anything else...

Last Night, I watched Equilibrium.
Christian Bale is sex personified. How I had not seen this movie before, I do not know. The action was good, the plot was pleasently original without being too new, and... did I mention how much I love Christian Bale?
