Has any one seen the British movie Donkey Punch?
It starts off pretty badly but soon turns into quite a clever thriller/ horror witth quite a deep moral message. It's a bit gruesome so not for the faint hearted...

That is without a doubt, the stupidest thing I've seen in a couple decades. Soft core porn film meets stupid with a british accent. A "thrilling" interaction between sluts and worthless douche bags. This movie and it's yacht needed a torpedo.

The last movie I saw was "This Is It".

Wasn't quite what I expected but was good.

I went by myself. There was a bunch of older(50+ years old possibly) people in there which I thought was weird.

There is no sig.

I watched Part 1 and 2 of V. I dunno about this reimagined V, except that it's an excuse to watch scifi hotties, Laura Vandervoort (smallville) and Morena Baccharin.

Dramatically, this could go either way at this point. Otherwise we could just entertain an old mans fantasies

It is in keeping with my generel opinion that pretty girls don't hurt.

Cliche', but probably ok if you are into that sort of film.

You might enjoy the BD release of "Gone with the Wind" which is a truly stunning digital remaster. This was especially nice, because I probably haven't seen it in 20 years on an old tv, with a mono speaker. Sometimes they fix old films nice. This is one of those times. OK, once I didn't yawn from having a BluRay player.

I didn't feel that Rocket Science was Cliche'. The poor kid with the horrible stutter does not conquer all, and the kids looked like regular kids..also that "spreading" that debators do is truly impressive.

Oh, it's uplifting, inspiring and dramatically tragic and it's about people in high school. Game over. It is a good example of a theme, if you like that sort of movie. Chick flick value accepted.

Yes, I am sure that Mr. Ebert is probably sorta like a man. I miss the late Gene Siskel, who dissented with Ebert on movies where we would almost always agree. Maybe in this case. We'll never know. RIP Gene!

I knew if Siskel said and Ebert said , I was in for a really good film. Now I just have to take the Ebert review and invert... generally speaking.

We should start our own show. Widdy and hippie. You can love sentimental goo movies about high school students and I'll say PASS! High school dramas died for me with "The Breakfast Club" which I did like but would never admit and probably will never watch again.

No offense Widdy, we agree sometimes. Just not this time

It's not just this film. If it has a high school in it and no axe murderer.... pass..

If it has kids in it... pass... That lets out modern Star Wars and Harry Potter anything. I am sure glad I don't have to endure Hannah Montana thank the Lord! Brittany Spears, Barney the purple dinosaur,Pokemon, genetically engineered Disney child stars,"My Little Pony" and I are SO done.

FREE! FREE! I Tell you. AH AHA HAA!!!!

I LOVED Juno. It had high school kids in it, too.
She was smart and so was the movie. I like movies about non-conventional people( or the not perfect people) in general.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - Wow, was this movie bad. Let's start off with suspension of disbelief. Space robots that turn into cars, that I can believe. Shia LaBeouf giving up a Camero that is a f-ing robot and Megan Fox to go to college, that's just too much. I love my time in college, but I would traid it in a second for either a robot car or Megan Fox. A half hour into this movie I found myself totall unintrested, so it is hard to give it a proper reivew because it really didn't have my undivided attention. Yeah, the special effects and giant robots were *amazing* but I think we have gotten to a point where that jsut isn't enough to sell a movie. When computer effects were coming big when I was younger, sure I would see and love a movie because of the special effects, but at this point it is really no big deal. Yeah, giant fighting robots looks amazing, but that just isn't enough to keep my interest anymore. With characters I can't stand, and your standard action fair with limited story or development, this movie just bored the crap out of me. One out of Five.


The Usual Suspects - Back to the older movies I had never seen, and this was worth seeing. A fun crime thriller that kept me quite interested. Though the bad thing about seeing an older movie that is this popular, it has long been spoiled for me, seeing since there is one hell of a twist at the end. Even knowing the ending I quiet enjoyed this movie and the story telling involved. Great characters, good development and just overall a fun movie. Four out of Five.

GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra - Like a lot of the toy based movies (and other 80/90s cartoons, I never really played with GI Joe, so I won't argue accuracies). Seeing the previews, I though this looked really bad. To my surprise it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Now admittedly the story is pretty contrived and there are several gigantic plot holes in it as well, but they weren't selling this movie because of the amazing story. So, it comes down to the action and how well it is tied together. Some scenes were quite over the top and even downright silly at times, but still entertaining. A decent cast, enough interweaving of a bit of comedy. It's not a bad movie if you want a decent turn your brain off action movie. Three out of Five.




And now for a nitpick, and there are tons to choose from with this moive, but this is a common theme I see in a lot of these types of movies and it always bugs me. The *gigantic* underground remote secret base. Most secret crime fighting organizations have one, and usually the baddie as well. The baddie never knows where the secret base is, yet say in GI Joe it is a several story underground base with planes and tanks and a giant pool for sub training. There is no way at all a place of that caliber or even 10% of it could be built in secret. The dirt evacuation alone would be impossible to go unnoticed. And instead of some highly complex plan to get a tracking beacon inside said base, why not pay off (or torture) one of the thousands of construction workers that must have been required to work on it. The conspiracy of construction would just be impossible to build a facility of that size and have nobody notice.

I bought the BD of Star Trek. I could pick on it here or there.

Did we spend a couple bucks making this? I think they tossed money at every frame. Wow!



It is hard to believe Abrams actually used film. That may be part of a dying breed of film in the use of anamorphic cameras.

This trekkie, later a trekker, and later bored with the Star Trek franchise ..ok I liked Jolene Blalock.. well like Kirk... "I feel young"

Bravo for a terrific resurrection of a long gone friend. How Abrams got some of these shots. including using a Budweiser brewery as an engine room is inspired. Watching the "extras" disk is a kick too. Watching JJ beat up a Panaflex to make it jiggle is fairly funny. Writing the computer simulation of JJ beating up a Panaflez... inspired..

It has to be the most outstanding marriage of CG and reality I have ever seen.

Julie & Julia

Meryl Streep was great. Amy Adams was so cute. How could you go wrong?

Brad Pitt was pretty knarly, but not to the extent of a Val Kilmer Doc Holliday in Tombstone. I think Kilmer still wins the knarled character award.

Carriers

A not too bad germ warfare/armageddon movie. Budget to be sure.

^I has a crush on Kilmer's Doc Holliday! "You're a Daisey if you do"!
And he didn't rape anyone. And he was a great friend.
And he didn't clean his feet at the dinner table, which is a plus.

Terminator Salvation

It's not a bad sequel in keeping with a saturated terminator franchise. Probably the least memorable terminator movie. Meh. OK, special effects were cool.

Spartacus - Free on Hulu (1960)

I haven't watched this film since I was a kid. I never realized the director was Stanley Kubrick. Spartacus is a far cry from A Clockwork Orange. It is the quintessial sword and sandal at the peak of sword and sandal popularity.

A mature viewing will see Kubrick influence and great performances by Douglas, Curtis, Olivier, Ustinov, Laughton.... more...

3 hours. It kept me in my seat with a 20 minute break in the middle. 4 stars.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. This is probably my least favorite Ice Age movie, but it was still fun. Scrat gets a new girlfriend - Scratte, and for a time forgets about the acorn... for a time...

This movie gets the distinction of being the 2nd highest box office take (850+ million) of any animated film. Critics generally panned this movie, but the public spoke at the box office.

I'll go with public opinion on this one.

I went to see Avatar (In 3D), which was the first time I've been to the cinema since Hot Fuzz (Which was years ago).

I have a few niggles with the whole 3D cinema stuff, but it does add to the experience in some nice ways.

Overall plot is easy to work out, but it does enough around it to keep you interested.

Oh and the graphics probably made my eyes orgasm.

Cartoony? heh. Most photo-realistic film ever, it's just hard for your brain to accept different things, since they're quite alien to you (And you know they're not real).

Did you see it in 2D or 3D? (I'd quite like to go back and watch it in 2D, right now.)

I saw it in 2d. Good. Amazing special effects, although a lame storyline. The walking human controlled robots were a great tribute to Sigourney Weaver's Alien days. It was certainly worth the price of going to the theater, even despite my saying most movies certainly aren't.

I usually wait for the DVD, but I guess Avatar is supposed to be something special. I'll see this in 3d Imax when I do it. No use chimping out.

I havem't seen a 3d movie since Creature From the Black Lagoon in probably like 1970.

I have been watching the Caprica pilot. OMG! OMG! Gag me with a spoon! Not only are there frackin kids in this movie, they are frackin squaaky, frackin whiney, frackin preppie girls. This totally FRACKIN sucks. It's really frackin hard to frackin find frackin sympathy for the eventual destruction of frackin Planet SoCal. Totally! All the frackin adolescent frackin whining and frackin crying makes me frackin want to frackin slap someone. Luckily these teeneeboppers frackin have frackin waterproof mascara.

I will pray to the gods of Mars that swift and terrible vengeance will come to the producers uf this frackin show.
