The Unsaid
The Unsaid (2001)
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Rented "The Unsaid" because it was on the "Favorites" section. Can't really complain, can't really praise.

If you are into movies that are as sad and weird and dramatic as some people's lives are, you are going to enjoy it. If you are looking to be challenged at any level, you will not.

I had little else to do the afternoon I saw it, and I combined movie-watching with e-mailing, so I can say I appreciated it. Must be sad to know that your movie is almost background noise for someone in the middle of nowhere. No offense intended; I liked it.

I had read this book by Steve Martin over Christmas last year. I hate watching the movie before I read the book and this one looked like ot might be a movie I would enjoy.

The book was nice. Very short, but good. It was the kind of book where I actually watched my reading pace to make sure I did not finish too soon.

Las week I rented the movie. I liked it too. Claire Danes was not quite the Mirabelle I had imagined, but it was ok. Jason Schwartzman on the other hand gave a very good performance and definitely brought life to that character. I actually liked him better in the movie than in the book, which is something that almost never happens to me.

The movie -like the book- is very slow. I enjoyed it in a lazy Sunday afternoon, thinking about life kind of way. I almost wanted to jump into the screen a couple of times to shake some life into Mirabelle. It was depressing watching her turn off the lights at night without looking remotely tired. I guess going to sleep just to make the day be over is one very sad symptom of being alone. That's what I remembered most about that movie and that character: she missed out on what could have happened because she went to sleep before it was over. That I would not wish to anyone, but the movie and the book I would recommend. Watch it with someone you can hug if you want, though.

House of Wax
House of Wax (2005)

Halloween. I can not understand how that can be anyone's favorite holiday. I just can't. Why do we have a holiday to scare people? It's stupid. Yesterday to celebrate Halloween (way ahead of time) some friends ordered 20 (yes, 20) pizzas and rented House of Wax. I had warned that I hated scary movies but they didn't care at all.

After eating my slice of ham pizza (rating: 9/10) I proceeded to be scared and grossed out for the next hour and a half. We had rented House of Wax to watch Paris Hilton die, as would any self-respecting human. One hour into the movie not only had she not died, but she had tried to act. I enjoyed her "acting" because it was hilarious how stupid she looked. The rest of the movie was less enjoyable. It sucked.

The movie was gory. And stupid. And made no sense. I knew what I was in for, but I think the level of stupidity and lack of common sense of these characters far surpassed the very high expectations that I had set for them. At every turn, if they had an opportunity to do something idiotic, they did. The thing that bothered me was that these were obviously kids that watched cheesy horror movies. Why would characters that are kids that watch cheesy horror movies not know what to do in a cheesy horror movie? It's stupid. Like Haloween.

Miracle
Miracle (2004)

I am a huge fan of Cool Runnings and almost any other movie that features two groups and then the one portrayed as nice wins. That is my favorite kind of feel-good movie: not the ones with the dad and the little girl or the ones with the poor kid that goes to college. I like movies where a team wins and you cheer.

I loved [b]Miracle [/b]because it was this kind of movie. And because I love hockey. And because it's obvious: if the actor is good looking, his character will probably be important to the plot. It was awesome!

I had fun during the whole movie. I cheered. I clapped. I got excited. And then I watched it again and cheered and clapped and got excited all over again.

This movie is awesome. And you should wath it. And clap. Please clap. Don't be stupid: everyone that likes the American team claps.

I had to go see [b]Flightplan[/b] because I needed to know what had happened to Jodie Foster's daughter. Those were some great previews. I really needed to know and I needed to know right away, so I went to the theatre to watch it.

I was not disappointed in my decision because I did find out what happened to Jodie Foster's daughter. I also had a fun time. I don't believe anything that was represented in that movie would ever happen in real life, but it was entertaining to watch.

The premise of the movie (Jodie Foster looses he daughter and freaks out) is very good and the master plan behind all that is good as well, what is very unrealistic is everything that happens in between. Most notably, the dialogue. The movie has at least 2 smart characters (Foster and the Air Marshall) delivering idiotic lines throughout the film. Maybe two highly intelligent people could come up with better things to say than the one-syllable and poor answers that they gave throughout.

Jodie Foster's acting was good I thought. Kind of as good as in Panic Room except in a less good movie with a similar amount of stress.

Bottomline: If you really want to know what happened to the kid and don't live in a place where a movie is $10 go watch it, otherwise rent the DVD or e-mail me and I'll let you know.
