Up in Smoke
Up in Smoke (1978)
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

This smoked-out comedy is an unintelligible blast for stoners and simple-minded audiences everywhere, with simple and goofy laughs as well as glory to the famous herb.

PLOT:Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong both meet together in this movie for a road trip of stoned-out proportions. The duo go on a trip across the states, smoking pot and looking for instances to score big dope, including stopping at a rock concert, drifting in and out of drug busts, and finding a whole van made of marijuana. It's a pretty stupid plot executed as well as it could be.

ACTING:The acting in here is okay. For the one-dimensional scripts the actors were given, they did a decent job. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong both played a pretty decent part as the smoked-out main characters of the movie, playing off each other's dialogue fairly well with simple humor. Everyone else wasn't really that special except for maybe a couple of extras that were funny. Tom Skerritt was pretty good as Strawberry.

SCORE:The score was mainly composed of original songs by the duo themselves about meaningless rebellion and marijuana itself. It wasn't really important.

OTHER CONTENT:This movie was really just a call to all stoners out there to glorify good old Mary Jane itself and the feelings it gives. I didn't really care much about the movie myself, but there were a few scenes I found funny due to the simple, silly slapstick. This movie isn't going to be one of your favorites if you don't smoke weed or find its effects funny.

OVERALL,a neutral drug movie with a bad plot, okay acting, unimportant score, some simple slapstick jokes, and a lot of glory to marijuana, oblivious if you like it or not.

A Bug's Life
A Bug's Life (1998)
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A lot of Pixar fans say this is one of the weakest films they made, but the voice acting, clever script, beautiful imagery, and simplicity of the story come together to make it an overall great film.

PLOT:Flik (Dave Foley) is an oddball ant in his colony on Ant Island. He always tries to come up with a new way to gather grain and food faster to reach the ants' annual goal: collect enough food to offer to the grasshoppers, who offer them "protection" while really pushing them around, and then scavenge enough for themselves. However, Flick really screws up with one of his inventions and loses all of the food gathered up for the grasshoppers, causing them to burst into the anthill and demand twice the amount of food by the end of the season. Flik then, to the great disappointment of Princess Atta (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and the rest of the colony, stands before trial to be sentenced. Flik comes up with an idea, though, to go out to the city and find bigger bugs to help them fight the grasshoppers away. Granting Flik his wish in hopes he won't return, the council sends him out to the city where he finds a group of bugs appearing to be tough. However, little does Flik know that they are circus performers. It's a good plot executed very well.

VOICES:The voice acting is done very well and just very well cast overall. Dave Foley plays a great part as the outcast hero, Flik, as does Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the princess-in-training, Princess Atta. Kevin Spacey also plays a very great part as the villain and leader of the grasshoppers, Hopper. There really isn't a bad performance in the whole film. The other shiners would have to be Phyllis Diller as the Queen, Richard Kind as Molt, Hayden Panettiere as Dot, Joe Ranft as Heimlich, David Hyde Pierce as Slim, Jonathan Harris as Manny, Denis Leary as Francis, Madeline Kahn as Gypsy, Michael McShane as Tuck and Roll, Roddy McDowell as Mr. Soil, Bonnie Hunt as Rosie, and John Ratzenberger as P. T. Flea. The cast is nearly all-star as is.

SCORE:The score in this film is light and very well composed by the great Randy Newman, with a unique theme and original song, called "The Time of Your Life".

ANIMATION:The animation in this film is very beautiful and pretty detailed for its time. The animation of the blue sky, green trees and grass, and the many different colors of the bugs are just beautiful, colorful, and detailed overall. If you don't appreciate the movie for its story, you could at least appreciate it for the beautiful, early Pixar animation present.

OTHER CONTENT:This Pixar film is known as one of the weakest because it doesn't go as deep and intricate into its story and lesson as the likes of Wall-E or Ratatouille. However, I believe the pure simplicity of the story and its lesson of making a difference and standing up for yourself is enough to accomplish the simple task of making a great film and entertaining the masses. I will admit, I'm also partial to this film because it was a major part of my childhood and the memories that came with it. However, this Pixar film also has some pretty smart dialogue between the characters to match, played off the characters very well. I honestly don't see that much of a flaw in this film. It's simple, beautiful, and well-acted to say the least.

OVERALL,it's a great animated film with a great plot, very well done voice acting, light and well composed Randy Newman score, beautiful animation, a simple and entertaining story and lesson, and some smart dialogue.

Looney Tunes: Back in Action
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This Looney Tunes and live-action crossover is actually much more fun and entertaining than its so-called predecessor with a few clever jokes to satisfy everyone, but the acting for one is pretty bad.

PLOT:In the world of Warner Bros. Studios, Daffy Duck is tired of playing secondhand star to Bugs Bunny, so he gets fired by the vice president of comedy there, Kate Houghton (Jenna Elfman). Also at the same time, D.J. Drake (Brendan Fraser), son of big spy movie star, Damien Drake (Timothy Dalton), gets fired from his security guard job and finds out his dad is a real super spy and that he (with Daffy, who won't leave him alone) must go to Las Vegas and save him and keep the Blue Monkey diamond out of the evil ACME Chairman's (Steve Martin) hands. All the while, Kate and Bugs go on a journey to meet up with the two unemployed teammates to get them back to the studio, or Warner Bros. will fire her. It's a good plot executed fairly great.

ACTING/VOICES:The acting and voices in this movie are okay, but bad for the most part. Brendan Fraser and Jenna Elfman are actually pretty bad in this movie. Fraser had a couple of a good lines, but for the most part, the script let him down. The voice acting for the toons, such as Jeff Glenn Bennett, Joe Alaskey, Billy West, June Foray, Eric Goldberg and others was pretty good. It was actually an authenticity improvement from the last one. The acting overall was pretty bad, especially Steve Martin in with the main two. I just did not like the character and the acting he did for him. Of course, he had maybe a couple good lines. The shiners aside from whom I may have already named are Heather Locklear as Dusty Tails, Timothy Dalton as Damien Drake, Joan Cusack as Mother, and a special cameo by Michael Jordan.

SCORE:The score and soundtrack was mainly made up of some memorable and original songs, along with a bit of mood-fitting action score. The score was actually pretty cool in this movie.

ANIMATION:The animation in this film is more memorable and just better than in the last one. The toons are animated with a bit more detail and more as if they actually existed.

OTHER CONTENT:This movie was just a fun improvement over the first Looney Tunes crossover. This movie is a lot of fun and actually clever in referencing to the right places, like with the aliens in Area 52 and the paintings in France. However, aside with the bad acting, this movie gets old fast doesn't capture all of the same joy the original show once had. However, it does much better than Space Jam.

OVERALL,an okay movie with a good plot, better voice acting and bad real acting with a bad script, good score and soundtrack, improved and more detailed animation, a lot more fun, and a lot of good referencing, but aside from the bad acting, this movie seems to get old fast and shine little light into the old feel of the original show.

Space Jam
Space Jam (1996)

This fun, basketball and Looney Tune movie is a classic to some, and is fairly entertaining, but for the most part, it seems just like propaganda for basketball fans with Looney Tunes to help it appeal to a wider audience than it actually accomplishes.

PLOT:There's a planet far out in space home to a theme park losing it's target audience to boredom, so the big, bad boss sends his tiny and dim-witted henchmen to Earth to fetch what he thinks will bring the kids back to his park: the Looney Tunes. The aliens go to Earth and try to steal away the Looney Tunes and force them into his boss's money-grabbing slavery, but the toons convince the aliens to give them a fair fight. Bugs Bunny and the rest of the toons decide on an event that goes against the current physical ability of the tiny, harmless aliens: basketball. The plan seems to work well until the aliens sneak into the human world and steal away the talents of many talented basketball players, such as Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, and Larry Bird, turning them into a big, strong, brutal team of skilled players named the Mon-stars. Knowing they now need help to win their freedom, the toons go to the human world and get the help of Michael Jordan, one of the best basketball players out there. Will Michael Jordan get the toons into shape and help win their freedom? It's a decent plot executed almost decently.

ACTING/VOICES:The acting and voice acting in this movie is okay. Billy West, D. Bradley Baker, and Bob Bergen provide the voicing for the various Looney Tunes characters throughout, such as Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, and many others. They don't sound as authentic compared to the original, but they get the job done enough. Michael Jordan does an okay job as himself, the basketball player new to the toon world, as well as the other players, Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, and Larry Bird. The voice acting and regular acting in this movie was just okay overall. Nobody truly surprised me. However, the other shiners (or honorable mentions) would be Wayne Knight as Stan, Bill Murray as himself, Danny DeVito as Swackhammer, Kath Soucie as Lola Bunny, and June Foray as Granny.

SCORE:The soundtrack of this movie was mainly made up of special songs composed specifically for the movie, including a modernized version of the classic, "Fly Like an Eagle". The score itself was nothing truly special.

ANIMATION:The animation in this movie was pretty good. The Looney Tunes are animated in a more modernized version of how they were back then, except set in the real world. It was okay overall. It got the job done.

OTHER CONTENT:This movie was just okay to me. I loved the fact that it had the Looney Tunes in it, and Michael Jordan played fairly well off the jokes they made. It was entertaining for the most part, and a good bit of fun. However, this movie is almost strictly for the fans of basketball. Even with the Looney Tunes added, most of the movie is centered around basketball and knowing MJ and the other players. Also, a lot of the jokes in here seemed just too juvenile and aimed toward the kids. I hardly laughed. The movie wasn't terrible, but it wasn't too good either.

OVERALL,a neutral movie with an almost-decent plot, okay acting and voices, a score and soundtrack not too special, okay animation, some good moments from the toons, and a bit of entertaining fun, but the movie is mainly for basketball fans, and the humor seems a bit too juvenile and childish.
