L.A. Confidential
12 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

[color=white]Just finished watching LA Confidential. Great movie. It was kinda slow in the beginning, and the 20 minutes after the one hour mark was not good, but still a great movie. It took a while to get into in the beginning, and a lot of the early stuff doesn't matter hugely in the end plot. At about an hour and ten minutes in, you get a feeling that the movie's wrapping up, yet there's still an hour togo. This part was not very well done, a poor transition from two seperate but closely related plotlines. The end, however, was magnificent, a great movie with great acting.[/color]

[color=#ffffff]On the whole, the movie was great. The parts by themselve s aren't too special, but one of those "whole is better than the parts" things, by a long shot. The only thing stopping this from getting a 10/10 was the plot. Being intricate and twisted like a spider's web, the plot was excellent but confusing and should have been explained better. I definately need to watch it again to pick up the subtleties, but it doesn't detract too much from the overall film.[/color]

12 Angry Men (Twelve Angry Men)
12 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

[color=White]12 Angry Men: Easily one of the best movies ever made. If I ever got around to making a top whatever list, I guarentee this would be on it. A drama about 12 jurors on the murder trial of an 18 year-old kid. 11 say guilty, but one man stands alone with a not guilty verdict. An absolutley masterful movie, I recommend buying it the first chance you get. You won't be disappointed.

Team America: A promising movie full of stupid and stale humor. I went in with big expectations, but they fell flat soon after it started. The humor, blain and simple, was aimed for 12 year-old boys who still crack up after a fart joke. A few intelligent jokes are found, but they're rare and can't hold up the rest of the movie. I left after about 40 min. because it just wasn't funny. Overall, a pre-teen movie in an r-rated shell. Drop a lot of the language and "graphic puppet sex", get a PG-13 rating, and show it to the real target audience.[/color]

Kill Bill: Volume 2

It's been a while, so I figured I should update. I took Drivers Ed this past week, my driving skills were on friday and saturday. This smoking hot girl was in my driving group, and I kept bothering her about how she sucked at parking (which she did, but I only did it to flirt). I gave her my AIM name, but she hasn't IM'ed me yet, so I guess she didn't like me too much. I had sunday off, but had 8-hour classes on mon-wed. They were booring as hell, but a few kids from my school were there so it wasn't that bad. I met another hot girl who was more cute than hot, but good looking regardless. She plays hockey which is awesome. I gave her my AIM name too, and we've talked twice. I had lazy days on thursday and friday, and here I am now. I also watched Kill Bill 2 (see below)

Kill Bill review: A great film, high entertainment value plus great drama. I'm still not sure if I like it more than volume 1, but they are both great movies with different good points. 9/10 [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/smilies/fresh.gif[/img]
