Just Saw Hot Tub Time Machine 
03:01am 28/03/2010
  So I saw Hot Tub Time Machine. Theater was packed, ha. Surprised I was able to get tickets. Anyways it was a great watch; in fact I am seeing it later tonight! One of the best lines from the movie. Craig Robinson is absolutely ridiculous.

  огромное влияние на принимаемую человеком систему ценностей и образ восприятия действительности, делают акцент на принципы типа: судите, да не судимы будете”. Склонение людей к безоговорочному одобрению каждого человека означает принятие следующего принципа: “Все в одинаковой мере заслуживает одобрения и доверия” Принимая во внимание огромное количество бандитов, убийц, грабителей и мошенников, внушение людям того, что они ни в коем случае не должны быть критичными в своих народная медицина , эстетическая , медицина журналы , здравохранение реферат заболевание , грибковые заболевания , заболевания половым путем , симптомы болезни наследственные заболевания психические заболевания диагностика заболеваний сердечно сосудистые заболевания сердечно заболевания гинекологические заболевания онкологические заболевания заболевания органов грибковые заболевания оценках, является ничем иным, как медвежьей услугой. Глубоко гуманная заповедь, без сомнения, достойна восхищения, и. тем не менее, она совершенно нереальна и потенциально вредна. Проявляемая вами любезность не всегда оказывается взаимной. Мир. конечно же, не настолько враждебен, чтобы во всех нас родилась мания преследования, однако мы должны поддерживать в себе умение критически смотреть на окружающий нас мир.  
an unreasonable man - one person can make a difference 
08:21pm 05/03/2007

"An Unreasonable Man" is a documentary about activist and politician, Ralph Nader. Obviously meant to sway our opinion in favor of Ralph Nader, "An Unreasonable Man" isn't entirely a puff piece and certainly doesn't shy away from the resentment people feel for him. I expected an "Ode to Nader" and in fact it focused on his disappointments as much as his accomplishments.

A reasonable storyCollapse )
Starter for 10 - Did they do their talent scouting in a high school? 
07:15pm 05/03/2007

Have you ever sat though a movie and had a distinct feeling of déjà vu? Sure the names and settings have been changed to protect the innocent but “Starter for 10” will give you that slightly clairvoyant feeling. I guessed the ending ten minutes into the movie; I hate that.

Is there such thing as a good romantic comedy?Collapse )
Ghost Rider - Action Packed, Plot Dry 
06:33pm 23/02/2007

“Ghost Rider” is a comic book take of how a curse and a bad decision for the right reason can be used for good. Directed and written by Mark Steven Johnson. Ghost Rider has a lot of the fun qualities about action movies but falls flat when it comes to substantive or interesting plot and occasionally gets downright dumb.

Daddy's Little Girls - almost heartfelt 
06:03pm 23/02/2007

“Daddy’s Little Girls” is the nearly touching story of a father’s attempts to win custody of his children and for a neighborhood to take back its streets. Written and directed by Tyler Perry, I was surprised by the quality of this movie and the issues it tackles.
cute, sweet and poorly written Collapse )
Norbit - Ignore it. 
05:43pm 23/02/2007

“Norbit” is Eddy Murphy’s newest multi character movie and is about a fat wife, and a weakling husband. Directed by Brian Robbins, “Norbit” is one long, annoying fat joke sprinkled with physical humor and a dash of physical humor and all warmed by charming portrayals of domestic violence and animal cruelty.
The Bridge to Terabithia - A surprising movie. 
12:47pm 22/02/2007

“The Bridge to Terabithia” is the film about the power of imagination based on the novel by Katherine Paterson. Written by Jeff Stockwell and David Paterson and directed by Gabor Csupo is too dark to be a children’s movie and lacks the certain X factor to make it a wonderful tale.
Wow, what a surprise!Collapse )

The Number 23 - It's Alright. 
10:28am 22/02/2007

"The Number 23" directed by Joel Schumacher and written by Fernley Phillips delves into one man's obsession and paranoia with the number 23. Slowly and awkwardly, the film progresses to tell a story of obsession and murder.
Pink means 23Collapse )
Hannibal Rising - Anyone have a poo stick? 
12:23am 16/02/2007

“Hannibal Rising” attempts to tell the story of how iconic character Hannibal Lecter becomes the horrific serial killer we all know and love. Director Peter Webber, and writer Thomas Harris created a movie that is so utterly confused to its genre it accomplishes the fundamentals of none.

Letters from Iwo Jima - A war story about the humanity of "the other side" 
05:54pm 15/02/2007

“Letters from Iwo Jima” directed by Clint Eastwood shows the Battle of Iwo Jima from the Japanese prospective. Based on the books by Iris Yamashita, Paul Haggis, Tadamichi Kuribayashi and Tsuyoko Yoshido, “Letters from Iwo Jima” gives a human face to the faceless men on the other side of America’s proudest war.
Is there humanity in war? Collapse )
Marie Antoinette - Barf 
02:05pm 10/02/2007
“Marie Antoinette”, left me fielding requests from my ears and brain to be strapped to excessive levels of dynamite and ignited. Written and directed by Sofia Coppola, “Marie Antionette” gives us another example of why it is rarely a good idea to have all of the ideas coming from one person.
Yes, it sucked Collapse )
The Painted Veil - A lovely movie 
01:12pm 10/02/2007

“The Painted Veil” is a beautiful movie about the power of anger as shown through a wife and husband who travel to rural china to treat a cholera epidemic. Director John Curran uses beautiful scenery and sets to frame great acting and a well written story based on the novel by W. Somerset Maugham.
China, Cholera, Walter, KittyCollapse )
The Last King of Scotland-sticks in your mind and heart like a battle scar! 
10:50am 07/02/2007
“The Last King of Scotland” based on the book by Giles Foden, is the intense story of charismatic and horrifying Ugandan leader, Idi Amin. Exceptional writing by Jeremy Brock and Peter Morgan, acting, and directing make a must see movie that sticks in your mind and on your heart like a battle scar.

The Dead Girl - Not a revolutionary movie but strong acting and strong script 
01:34pm 06/02/2007

“The Dead Girl”, written and directed by Karen Moncrieff, is a haunting story of how six women are affected by the gruesome, untimely death of one young woman. Each affected woman is suffering in their own emotional prison. Arden, Leah, Beverly, Ruth, Rosetta, and Melora all gain new life and opportunity because of their connection to the dead girl.

It is the "Little Miss Sunshine" of my life! 
07:27pm 04/02/2007
Little Miss Sunshine, the laugh out loud comedy, directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris and written by Michael Arndt is an inspired work of comedy, acting and cinematography.

Blood and Chocolate, based on the book by Annette Curtis Klause, directed by Katja von Garnier is an interspecies romance based in modern day Bucharest. Writers Ehren Kruger and Christopher Landon take us down a path as interesting as driving in the Great Plains.

Keep the blood, I’ll keep the chocolateCollapse )
The Departed-This film is full of unexceptional things. 
05:13pm 29/01/2007
“The Departed,” is a cop, snitch, mob drama centered in Boston. Directed by Martin Scorsese, “The Departed’s” screenplay, written by William Monahan, Siu Fai Mak and Felix Chong, leads the audience through a brilliantly written maze of lies, violence and vengeance. Even a strong screenplay can’t save the movie from Martin Scorsese’s unnecessary gore and the actors’ melodrama.
The decapitated, no, the retarded, no, the departedCollapse )
Pan’s Labyrinth is a mystical and whimsical fairy tale wrapped in horrifying war story 
02:00pm 28/01/2007

Pan’s Labyrinth, or El Laberinto del Fauno, is a mystical and whimsical fairy tale wrapped in horrifying war story. Set in World War II in Spain, Guillermo del Toro’s story will make you fascinated and leave you with your mouth wide open.
A magical war story Collapse )
The Queen - Its screenplay is the epitome of UK personality. 
11:03pm 27/01/2007

“The Queen” attempts to make British Royalty understandable in typical British style; with diverse but subdued emotions. Finely directed by Stephen Frears, and complexly written by Peter Morgan, “The Queen” tries to offer an explanation to the strange behavior of the royals after Princess Diana’s death. “The Queen” is a teeter-totter story of the balance between old and new.

Queen Elizabeth the Second, regally portrayed by Helen Mirren, strikes an uncaring and cold cord to the British people and the world when Princess Diana is killed. She refuses to address the nation. She refuses to allow her grand children to go to Paris to see her body. She even refuses to allow Prince Charles, Alex Jenning’s character, to fly on the royal jet to see Diana while she is in critical care. When Diana finally dies, she doesn’t want a public funeral. The British people cry out for her attention and she provides none.
A royal reviewCollapse )
