Hey, all you users of Flixster. It's Booklover11 again, I know, I'm sending you guys way to much stuff, like polls, personal messages, film recommendations, etc, but hear me out. This October 6th, I will be doing this huge movie marathon, by reviewing 3 MOVIES ON THAT DAY! Now, I know, I did more than that before, but I've been real busy for the past month or so, so if you want to read my reviews, then's the time to do so, unless the date changes. The first movie I'll be reviewing is the critically acclaimed comedy; Ghostbusters. The second movie I'll be reviewing is the critically acclaimed animated Pixar film; Wall-E. The final movie is the biggest one, but will not be announced until the review is poster, so check it out then! So, check out my profile on the 6th for 3 movies in a row, and if the movie reviews aren't their, there might be an explanation on my About Me section. So, hope you check my profile then! P.S For a hint of what movie will be reviewed, you'll have to look DEEP into my profile. :P

I already watched em, I just have little time to review em, so next time I'm free, I review the movie that was voted on the most (It takes me an hour to make a good review with good examples and some decent humor).

The Circus

The Circus

(1928)
2 years ago via Flixster

I happened to see this being offered on Hulu in association with the upcoming Oscars and the film "The Artist" touching on the silent film genre. I am not an expert and the only other silent film I have seen is "Our Hospitality" by Keaton. I think I've been lucky to see two fairly great silent films as my first two silent films. This is the second. The Circus has a "charming" quality as is the buzz word for this movie and most of Chaplin's flixs in general it seems. However, this one was truly charming in displaying the heart and comedy of Chaplin. The story is touching and made me laugh out loud literally many times. It was entertaining through out and fast pace despite the silent movie subtitle screens. Chaplin has a way of doing that and having amazing comedic timing. It makes me want to watch more Chaplin flicks and also catch Downey's biographical examination of the actor.

Clash of the Titans

Clash of the Titans

(2010)

This is actually a pretty fun film to watch. I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would. The creepy characters/villains they battle are actually well done and some of the classic Greek Mythology characters come into the story line. This is not a film on ideas or any type of deep mythology of the classic mythology, but the action is done in an amazing way and the special effects are pretty good. The story line is nothing great, but the hatred of the gods by man is an interesting perspective. Especially from one who is partially a god. Sam Worthington is a pretty amazing action star and it is great to see great actors like Neeson and Fiennes go campy. The action in the film does actually build up and mostly pays off in several scenes. So overall a fun film that I could see myself watching again or even owning to see again.

Immortals

Immortals

(2011)

Clash of the Titans was a better popcorn action film then this film. Although Immortals is more visually stunning and creative, the story was pretty boring over all. While some of the action scenes were pretty amazing, they did not sustain the movie or really build up toward any type of amazing or captivating climax. The gods were boring and so were the men in this film. While Greek mythology has these great stories and characters that have been built into our language and culture on a symbolic and linguistic level, this movie (and less so with Clash of the Titans) fail to use these characters in a creative fashion. Clash of the Titans does a better job with it, but still falls short. Sadly, most all of it becomes empty action film shtick and no creative story or thought provoking ideas really comes of it. Immortals is a mostly boring film with some cool visuals and fight scenes. Outside of that this film falls way short of its potential.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

I have never read the book, which may be a good thing according to those who are die hard fans of the book. Nothing against them. So just as a film in general, the film is pretty good and entertaining. There is some dry funny moments in the film on par to almost Monty Python type of humor. You can tell the gripes in this film (the questions of life, religion, red tape bureaucracy, and politics) are pretty plain to see and addressed in a bit outdated Monty Python fashion. However, the film is enjoyable enough and the computer effects are actually pretty good and entertaining. They also seem to use puppet FXs as well which is really well done and seems to fit the film very well. It almost makes you wish MIB and other such films would use it more. Zooey Deschanel is her usual cute self playing the same basic character she always seems to play. The other characters are interesting enough and played well. Especially Mos Def as he plays a character that seems to fit his acting ability fairly well and better than his character in "16 Blocks." All in all an enjoyable film I'm glad I saw, but I doubt I will ever buy it or watch it again. I may pick up the book one of these days.
