(except for Jeremy Pivot who can exclude himself from criticism, this movie thought it was the bees knees, yet only set about giving us annoying as fuck characters who you wished died quicker…except Jeremy Pivot who rocked)
(once again an actor, in fact make it two can ignore the following, The Rock and Vince Vaughan were good, while Uma Thurman showed she can still act shit, despite giving brilliant performances with any project involving Quentin Tarantino. Travolta may have also came back to the fold with Tarantino help but surely by now he has disappointed us too many times. This movie also like Smokin’ Aces thought it was the bomb, yet it was merely a bomb.
Aliens Vs Predator Requiem
Any AVP sequel that makes the first of the combined franchise look like a classic is a bad thing…and this movie was bad. Should have loaned the CGI equipment and alien suits to a bunch of teen fans and would have come out with something more coherent and meaningful. Simply an insult and probably the death of the Predator franchise for a while. I actually clawed at my eyes while watching it.
Should have simply skipped onto Terminator Salvation. T-100 Arnie looked more obsolete than usual. Brought comedy to the franchise, comedy which belonged back in time and not brought back.
Why Luc Beeson’s name was attached to this movie I am not sure. I heard the first one was okay but I will never know cuz I will never watch it or the new one. I am not sure whether this movie was trying to be a cheesy, cliché, action flick with bad acting but it achieved it, well done now fuck off please.
Maybe only because I love David Lynch so much I expected a lot of this film.
Not only was the choice to use amateur style cameras for a realistic, more personal affect wrong but strangely I ended up with no creative tangents I usually spark up when watching a Lynch flick. Here’s hoping his next film is better or that he hands the banner to his daughter after her awesome second movie Surveillance.
I must have missed the email which everyone seemed to receive or maybe it was the overbearing marketing which accompanied it but I hated this movie. I didn’t see it for a while so maybe it was like rocking up to a party too late but really a good film should be a good film for years to come not just the following weeks.
Hard to match the first one, luckily this one didn’t try, well it appeared that way. Boring as hell despite the overdone long almost pretentious fight scenes. I will admit I wasn’t sure what was going on, but I also didn’t want to know, so in those respects the movie failed and the over the top hype surrounding the film probably hardened the blow. Yet The Dark Knight showed bug hype can be justified.
Mission Impossible 2
Even though it was filmed partly in Australia which is good, maybe our shit movie industry rubbed off on this sequel which couldn’t stop using futuristic face masks to lazily try and create surprise and twits in the plot. Pathetic film even for a popcorn action movie.
Lost in Translation
Okay once again I must have missed the email where it stated you had to think this film was so fukcin
Fantastic. I mean I love Bill Murray and what guy doesn’t love Scarlett Johanson but I’d seen this type of thing done before by people like Jim Jarmusch and people never seem to rave about his work (probably cuz they never see them)
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Similar effect on people as with Lost in Translation and I could throw in Little Miss Sunshine too. Movies which were okay but man do people go all gooey and bright eyed over them. I kind of found Kate Winslet’s character annoying but I did try to like her quirkiness. Jim Carrey is good at both comedy and drama but he was a tad bit pathetic and I couldn’t really emphasise with him in this role. This movie just seemed to go nowhere, at least nowhere I cared for.
