Rating History

Paranormal Activity 2
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Although not at all as masterful as the original, PA2 does offer an actual story as to the origins of this demon. The film is more of a prequel than a sequel. Only the last 2-3 minutes occur AFTER the original Paranormal Activity.

Hook
Hook (1991)

Fairy dust, kidnapping, giant crocodiles and a grown up peter pan. GOD I LOVE THIS MOVIE! One of my all time favorite child hood memories. Spieldberg, Williams, Roberts, Smith, Glenn Close (the Gutless pirate thrown in THE BOO BOX!) and Hoffman all give outstanding performances and make this film fun for all.

The Three Musketeers
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A classic that will live on forever. With funny witty banter and great casting of Tim Curry and Charlie Sheen, this movie is worth watching again and again...and again.

Having recently seen this I can give an accurate critique of it. While it has its points where I am forced to skip things due to not caring (such as the dinner scene at wayne manor between viki and bruce), this movie was the first to take Batman seriously and thus it is not perfect.

Pros: Michael Keaton played the part superbly. He may have been a funny man, but I saw no hint of that in this film. He played a down to earth bruce wayne who still struggles with his own demons. As batman, he is terrifying to the villains (except the joker). Most of the other characters were good as well (except the wayne parents and knox [who got on my nerves]). The music was amazing the a lot of the fight scenes were spectacular.

Cons: I'm sorry but Jack did not sell it enough for me. Try as he might, and he tried very hard to sell that joker, I just cannot see the Joker doing corporate take over. The scenes in the news and its station BORED me. The flashback to the night of the Wayne's deaths lacked emotion. I just did not feel sorry for the little bruce in this film as I did in Batman Begins. The story gave no background info as to how Bruce became the Batman and how he learned what he's learned in order to fight crime. Billy Dee Williams as Harvey Dent? I don't think so. Dent returns in the third film as Two Face, but is played by the remarkable Tommy Lee Jones. Some times I feel like the joker is a bit predictable. Another thing, I've never known the Joker to fall in love.

Overall: Despite that I've listed more cons than pros, I still declare this a decent film. I like Dark Knight better because the characters are more developed. Not to mention you don't have some two bit reporter trying to find out your secret.
