Oh wow, your experience seeing Prisoners sounds like it was a great night. I'm going to see it this evening but i'm sure Hugh Jackman won't turn up in gloomy old south Devon haha. Anyway, glad you liked it, i'm very excited to see it.
I eat, drink and sleep movies. But I call them films.
Some of my reviews have question marks instead of commas, for this and other in-corrections in grammar, I apologise.
I like films and I like talking to other people who like films about films! If you don't really like films you are at the wrong place. All my reviews are based on my own opinion, if you don't like it, you know what to do but please don't be nasty and try and keep your remarks short and intelligent.
Please don't add me just to increase your numbers, I will only add you/ask for you friendship if I like your style (Not because you are naked, although, feel free to send me naked pictures of yourself if you like ;o).
Learn the rules before you play the game!
I look forward to communicating with you in the future! ;o)
PS. I'm not a troll and I don't have lots of other profiles and other such nonsense. I'm not interested nor will I tolerate anti-social networking!
Oi, Flixster, sort the list function out!!!!!!!
I've not read any of the Alex Cross books so I can't say whether this is a good adaptation or not but I have seen the two other Alex Cross films and I think I liked them, it's hard to tell as my older reviews are crap but there is just as much to like as there is to dislike. I'm unfamiliar with Tyler Perry, looking at his IMDB page though he does seem to be an odd choice, so I can see why people have questioned his casting. This is the first Edward Burns film I haven't hated, so that is a nice change. The conclusion was obvious 30 minutes into the film but I was mildly entertained throughout. My biggest reaction to the film though was 'Is that really Matthew Fox'? Seriously? Good work Mr. Fox, please reward yourself with cake, ice cream, a really big sandwich, fried chicken, anything, just please eat something. We do not need another Matthew McConaughey.
Hurrah, a new and original Christmas film to join the very few really good Christmas films list. I loved the idea of each Santa handing down the responsibility to each Son and the evolution of the Christmas eve Toy delivery. Typically with Ardman films, it's all about the details. If you miss all the little beautiful quirks in this film then I'm afraid your brain has been a little too programmed by the deluge of awful Christmas films released before. It is funny, refreshing, exciting and impressive. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will probably make a point of watching it every year, maybe even in Summer, as it is that good.
Harvey Frost is a career Christmas film director. All his Christmas films are awful but then most are anyway. Christmas films can be put into one of three categories. Good Christmas movies (very few films make it into this category), Good Crap Christmas movies and Crap Crap Christmas movies. I guess it was only a matter of time before Mr Frost made a Good Crap Christmas movie and here it is folks. Although I should mention that the only reason it isn't a crap crap Christmas movie is because of the late great Ernest Borgnine.
Absolute garbage. Personally, when I'm not hating things with a passion, I can see 101 things of beauty in one day. There are beautiful things happening all over the place. Talented story tellers know this and the good ones can express this in the median of their choice. There are many great films that show beauty in the simplest of things, the really clever ones show us beauty where you generally don't expect it. In Noel, Chazz Palminteri (of all people) tries to show beauty in all sorts of nonsensical situations, most of which are ridiculous, unbelievable and down right stupid. He slips up loads of times too, continuity goes right out the window but then that's just me being a moody bum-humbug fool that doesn't believe in fairy-tales. I don't believe in reincarnation, I don't believe in coma-ghosts, I don't believe those with Alzheimer's secretly know exactly what is going on and that they're all just pretending, I don't believe hospitals can keep you against your will, I don't believe Christmas eve lasts 48 hours, I don't believe shops are open until 2am, I don't believe stories of dead babies can be classed as 'Comedy', I don't believe that insulting homosexuals really helps the anti-homophobic message, I don't believe that all poor people live in green apartments, I don't believe Home decorators work late on Christmas eve and are all homosexual, I don't believe anyone is proud with their involvement in this film and I don't believe it was a mistake that Robin William's name was missing from the credits. Oh, and I don't believe in Santa either. Stupid me, what an ass I am.
A sugar-free 'Police Academy' style film set in a Submarine. A nice idea but unfortunately it totally forgets to be funny. In fact, it gets fairly serious towards the end and any amount of slap-stick would have got in the way as you genuinely want them to succeed in their mission and the way in which they do is actually rather intelligent. Boo, we don't want intelligent, we want stupid!! It's fairly harmless though, I actually watched it thinking it was the other film that came out around the same time, McHale's Navy. I only wanted to see that because Bruce Campbell is in it. I need to get out more.
