You pretty much said everything about the new Muppet movie that i felt, except with more charisma than myself haha. I still have no idea why they chose Ricky Gervais though, is he more popular in the US? oh and i agree that there's too many people and not enough Muppets! :)
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!!!!!!!
Après vous is entertaining enough but is mainly carried by it's two main leads, Daniel Auteuil and José Garcia. I felt it started better than it ended though, as it lost pace and energy towards the end and I can't say I was a fan of the conclusion. However, it was quite funny and farcical and you can't beat a good old fashioned French farce. It is possibly the one and only time I'll say this but maybe an American remake wouldn't be such a bad thing!
Much like Fata Morgana, this is the side of Herzog's films I'm not too fussed about. Its dreamlike footage of space and underwater are mesmerising and the sci-fi story narrated by Dourif was also strangely captivating. I also loved the music. The problem is that none of it really fit together. It just seemed a bit muddled, especially compared to his epic documentaries that I adore. Dourif did add a certain something to the film but you can't beat Herzog's own narration, I could listen to his voice all day long. As you can see from my rating though, a lesser Herzog is still a four star triumph.
A brave and uncompromising drama that avoids any 'Hollywood' sugar-coating and says exactly what it want to say. Sidibe is great in the title role but it's Mo'Nique's terrifying performance that really steals the show. Some of the reactions and gasps that came from the audience when I saw it could have easily been mistaken for those that a gory horror film would usually warrant. The script was very good and the direction was competent, was it Oscar worthy? Hmm, not sure about that but then again, Oscars don't mean as much as they used to! Still, a good film and highly recommended!
Don't go near the park has some decent gore scenes but overall it's a poor 80's cheese fest/'Video nasty'. I love 80's cheese fest/Video nastiness but unfortunately Don't Go Near the Park is rather boring and has one of the very stupidest of endings. Some say cult, others say crap - for my money it's somewhere in between but definitely leaning towards crap I'm afraid.
I'm going to have to go against the grain on this one and declare that I actually really enjoyed this version of Clash of the Titans. OK, so it is CGI heavy and I didn't like the Kraken at all but I thought the rest of the film bought the characters from Greek mythology to life quite admirably. As a kid I was really into Greek mythology so although it was likely I was always going to be pleased I was also always going to be a harsh critic on this one but Leterrier did a good job I thought. I think the negative backlash it received is a little unfair, as entertaining action films goes I thought it was fantastic! I have to say though, I find it odd that Jason Flemyng has become the go-to man for disfigured monsters, how did that happen?
