Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

I like the Art of the movie. Its pretty cool to just look at, if you like Star wars. The story was ok. And the acting was kinda corny. I like the jedi philosphy though. Watching it with friends is better. Suround sound adds alot too the movie! Blast the sound!

X2: X-Men United

Like the realistic super hero style. The issues that are facing the X-men potray a window into Hate and political activism which is cool. It's actually a bit mellow with a bit slower storyline and style. Theres alot of different charactor storys going on all at once ,which was o.k. X-men: stay strong.

I think this was the inspiration for Mortal Kombat.

The Whole culture is messed, with a few men seeing clearly.

Ben-Hur

Amazing Epic shots. Great message. Very good and pretty film. Great Diologue. My only issue from giving it 5 stars is that some scenes were too long could have been edited down with still keeping content.

½

O.k for covering the book.

Shaolin Soccer
½

Haha, funny. and cool.

The Dark Knight

The most realistic super hero movie ever. Awesome shots of the Citys, gave a huge epic feel to it. The sound fit so well, keeping it hyper realistic with sound effects and amping up the tension on crazy parts. Showed the parinoia of the citzens which added to tension. OVERALL super realistic which brought the people into the movie.
Story and direction were amazing it keep the plot moving a almost perfect pace, it was like 2 moives in one.
It felt dark, in that it didn't glorify crime so it came off really realistic which might have shocked some.
Personally it didn't have the emotional/message impact as other movies i've seen, which is why I give it 4 stars.

Seven Samurai (Shichinin no Samurai)

Kind of slow, but if you know japanese and film, very good. Just about a bunch of homeless samurai's that sacrifice everything.... just to do whats right and protect others. They live only to serve with honor.

Mortal Kombat

kinda cheezy fun. but stupid.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
½

Good job of craming the book. Like the jokes and action. Good charactor building and acting(for some) Darker then the book somewhat. Overall just a fun movie.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End
½

The best one. Liked the story twists, didn't see that ending coming. Some Lame un-needed cheesy joke scenes. But also some really funny charactor set ups.
Some action scenes were pushed for to long without much drama, or caring about what's going on, but some were good too. Suprisingly I enjoyed it.

3 Ninjas Kick Back

LOL! - So, lame fighting, these kids would get killed for real, but I used to like it when I was a kid.
