Movie Ratings and Reviews

The Bourne Ultimatum

This movie is full of action and suspense, and good pacing to boot. A sure hit.

Sicko
Sicko (2007)

This is probably Mooore's best documentary he's made (if you can call it a documentary). Much less confrontational than many of his previous films, Moore allows the people , not him, do the talking. I only found one part of the movie questionable -- and that is the section where Moore and some of the people he interviews throughout the movie make a visit to Cuba. The scenes in this section are probably an overrepresentation of the Cuban healthcare system (although in Moore's defense Cuba is a model of healthcare for third world countries and is only ranked 2 below the US on the World Health Organizations Rankings of Healthcare Systems). Overall its a very entertaining movie. By no means your typical documentary, but that's probably what will get the average person to see the movie and thus be made aware of the issues Moore is trying to display throughout his film.

Ocean's Thirteen

A fun weekend movie would sum up this film best. Not a movie of substance, but it doesn't try to be. Action packed, humerous, star-filled cast; what more could you ask for?

The whole films's purpose is to be entertaining, and for the two hours it played it did its job. That said I probably won't watch it again. Nothing too memoriable.

The American Ruling Class

What can one say about this movie? It's a mild mix between a musical and documentary. But it's not really either. The closest relation I can find to this movie are the documentaries made by Micheal Moore.

However let's get this straight, this movie is by no means a "classical" documentary. A better term to use would probably be molded documentary style storytelling. The movie is in the documentary tradition, however, the main characters are played by actors that interact in a landscape where some are aware of their role (other actors) and others are completly oblivious.

This really belongs in a genre all its own. If a more refined movie of this type was created, a filmmaker could easily create a believable and satisfying piece of cinema.

Children of Men

Maybe its just me, but I don't get what people see in this film. Its not revolutionary by any means. I'm not trying to downplay the cinematography, for it was quite excellent. That said Children of Men just leaves too many questions unanswered to be a fulfilling movie (however this seems to be what some like about the movie). You may also call this the "unspoken commentary" of the film. Well I could get the same effect from watching footage of victims in German camps during WWII (xenophopia, hope, ect). What I find really sad though is that director Cuarón never actually read the original work by P.D. James.

Basically Children of Men takes the route of so many other dystopian films. Nothing new to see here.

The Sixth Sense

The epitome of the thriller genre. In my opinion this is Shyamalan's finest work. Just don't let anyone tell you what happens!

Secondhand Lions

Though I went to this just to see a Return of the King trailer it was surprisingly a decent movie. The only bad thing was how annoying Osment was now that he wasn't 8 years old.

Minority Report

Interesting... yet outlandish concept. Tom Cruise... again. Not great and not terrible. Entertains but really nothing else.

The Super Mario Bros.

I didn't think this was absolutly horrendous. If you think about it... how are you really supposed to do a live-action super mario? Considering this I wouldn't consider the movie a total waste of my time.

Batman Begins

Exagerated at times... Better than the last two incarnations of the series, but not as good as Burton's.

Back to the Future

This is one great movie... Full of paradoxes and fun galore. I love Christopher Lloyd!

The Pink Panther

Never really a fan of Steve Martin. And this didn't help.

King Arthur
King Arthur (2004)

First time I ever saw Clive Owen in a movie... I was expecting ALOT more after reading the incredible trilogy by Benard Cornwall... http://www.bernardcornwell.net/index2.cfm?page=1&seriesid=4
Read them now!

X2: X-Men United

I love the deeply symbolic portrayial of segragation. A creative interpretation I had never before seen in the Xmen series.

X-Men
X-Men (2000)

Three great actors... in what a comic book movie?! This is truly in my eyes the beginning of the best comicbook movie series to enter cinema.

March of the Penguins

Morgan Freeman narrating a documentary... What could be any better?

Schindler's List

This is Spielberg at his best. A simply moving piece.

Crash
Crash (2004)

Ummm though it tries to portray how how modern society views race... it does so with moderate success. Unbelievable situations discredit the societal equals trying to be shown. So-so acting. Didn't really enjoy the cinematography.

Finding Nemo
Finding Nemo (2003)

Great family film easily worthy of praise and glory.

The Incredibles

Pixar... you've done it again.

Donnie Darko
Donnie Darko (2001)

Sort of shady... Perhaps I didn't pick up on the symbolism like others but nothing really stood out.

Scary Movie
Scary Movie (2000)

Very funny, although probably overdone in a few spots.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

This was a great remake. I absolutly adored the music!

Saw II
Saw II (2005)

Usually not a fan of horror. This however, is an exception. Its clever twists and mind games make this move a must see.

Braveheart
Braveheart (1995)

Who doesn't like movies based on good ol' European history?

The Day After Tomorrow

Not really realistic... and the acting isn't that good to boot.

The Ring
The Ring (2002)

A ring is about to eat me oh no! Well atleast this wasn't as bad as its sequel... Oh deer. (no that wasn't a misspelling)

The Matrix
The Matrix (1999)

Though the sequels may have not been up to the original, this movie was a true breakthrough, and led the way to many copies of its truly brilliant techniques.

Sin City
Sin City (2005)

Clever and emotionally driven this film is one for those who like action with a plot.

2 Fast 2 Furious

Cars... Girls... Cars... Girls... Ummmm this movie sucks.

War of the Worlds

Overdone. Uhhh and Tom Cruise. How 'bout no. Steve you can do better.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Actioned packed. Chemistry can easily be seen between these little love birds.

School of Rock

Best comedy... EVER! Jack Black rules!

Austin Powers in Goldmember

This movie is what all other comedies of the 00's measure themselves by.

Meet The Fockers

Very humerous. Full big laughs.

Wedding Crashers

Very funny. Best comedy of '05.

Shrek 2
Shrek 2 (2004)

Great animated comedy, probably in the top five ever made.

Gladiator
Gladiator (2000)

This is leaning towards a five. A great movie, but didn't have everything it could have.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith 3D

NoooOOOooo. This probably had the worst dialouge I've seen in my life. I give it three out of the kindness of my heart and little else.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Not as good as the book. A very corny moments, but overall not terrible.

Titanic
Titanic (1997)

This is a great movie. Noone will forget the movie Titanic... and for good reason.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

I love Chinese movies. They seem to convey so much depth and emotion.

Hero
Hero (2004)

This is a TRUE masterpiece... worthy of anyone's collection. Hero is possibly my favorite film I've seen.

Kill Bill: Volume 2

This was awesome! I was almost sad when Bill finally said good bye.

Kill Bill: Volume 1

A great start to the wonderful duelogy that is... KILL BILL!

Spider-Man
Spider-Man (2002)

Way too predictable... next to the Hulk and Ultraviolet... my least favorite comic book movie.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

I being VERY kind with this score. Acting's not the best... but I suppose that that can be forgiven. However that said, anytime a sword was picked up by one of the main characters it seemed like there was some force pulling the enemies's chest right toward the tip of the blade. The main character standing there doing absolutly NOTHING!

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

I was pleasantly surprised to view this summer of 2003... and ever since I've hated Orlando Bloom (to be truthful I didn't really like him before had) and adored Johnny Depp.

The Island
The Island (2005)

Uhhhh... Cars look exactly the same 50 years from now... and hey Microsoft must still be selling a ton of them Xboxes. Yippee.

King Kong
King Kong (2005)

More indepth than the original... In my opinion the best of 2005.

Red Planet
Red Planet (2000)

Clichés a la aliens... Need I say more... I thought so.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

A monumental tie-up to a great trilogy. Perhaps a bit over dramitized in some parts, still the emotion it portrays cannot be replaced!

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

In my opinion not near as good as the first... however it still held its own. Too much action and not enough plot for my liking.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

This is in my opinion the best of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I find this to be Ian McKellen's best performance in the series.

The Boondock Saints

Maybe its just me... but I don't get what everyone sees in this. The only good parts are when Classical music is blaring out my speakers.

Fahrenheit 9/11

Though some may not like Michael Moore, this is one compelling piece of film! Both funny and though provoking.

Anacondas - The Hunt for the Blood Orchid

Dwight H. Little does a wonderful job directing this fine piece of cinema. The plot is of full allusions to many of Shakespeare's finest works. Let's be truthful... IT SUCKED!

The Medallion

Yeah teleporting is pretty awesome... Jackie Chan you can do better!

The Manchurian Candidate

Not really a sequel up to par with the original. Decent acting... nothing extraordinary.

Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet (2006)

This is by far the worst movie I've EVER seen! Don't even let the idea of thinking of watching this movie enter your brain!

V for Vendetta

One the best movies I've seen in a looong time. Portman and Weaving are fantastic... If anything can be learned its that... this IS how you do a movie based on a comic. Ooooo and remember remember the 5th of November.
