This mockumentary is great for a laugh. it's the sort of movie you go to with a group of friends and have some good out-loud belly laughs. There are so many one-liners in here that I'll have to wait till its out on DVD to note them down. However, amidst all the hilarity and pooh, Kenny is a sensitive bloke who has family problems like all of us. He is a real, regular bloke! This film also stands as an indictment on society. It brings the silver-tails back to earth with a resounding "plop" After all, everyone has to cr*p!! The final scene (not counting those in the credits) is a re-make of an old classic revenge prank that looses nothing in it's reworking. Loved Kenny's dad!
This was a great sequel to a great movie. For once, a movie that
you have to THINK in.....drift off and you'll miss a critical bit of
The film leaves us nicely poised for the 3rd part later in 2003......
This is a great show that looks at crimes from a different
perspective. I'm sick of all those investigative whodunit's that seem
to follow similar plot lines. this show takes us into the minds of the
scientists behind the investigation. Rather than just seeing them
give evidence in court scenes, we see how they gather data and at
times we get to look inside their heads to see what makes them
tick. I think this show will spawn a new breed of student coming up
from high school who will want to do science, perhaps to get into
forensics. I enjoy losing myself in this show each week when its screening,
and I'm looking forward to sampling the new CSI Miami when it
screens for the first time in Australia in 2003.
Lots of womanizing in this movie, but Hey! it IS James Bond! The
CGI in the opening credits is cool and there is a great sound track
to go with it. One or two of the escape sequences could have been
done better, given today's CGI capabilities, but those people who
rabbit on about how unbelievable they are must have forgotten that
it it a BOND movie and James can do ANYTHING! I was a little
disappointed that the traitor was so easy to pick. I had "the person"
pegged as soon as I saw them "in London" All in all, I enjoyed it and it was 2Hrs+ of pure escapism and a
welcome respite from the Christmas shopping.
At last George Lucas has regained his old form. This film leaves
the Phantom Menace for dead! The action and underlying plot
lines are excellent and it is great to see just why Master Yoda IS
held in such high regard by other Jedi. In the theatre where I saw it
(12:05 am on release day) the whole of the audience errupted in
applause and cheers when Yoda "Made his move!"
I was a little worried about seeing this movie after the last one, but
I am now awaiting the last in the series with anticipation.
I am surprised that JK Rowling had anything to do with the filming
at all! Vital (SMALL) sections were left out, and the ending was
completely altered for no apparent reason, other than an ego trip
for Warner Bros computer animation dept! Whilst I enjoyed
sections of the movie, I thought Emma Watson II over-acted all the
time, whilst Daniel Radcliffe performed acceptably. To my way of
thinking, the pick of the actors was Rupert Grint as Ron. He
demonstrated superb timing and had an easy way of acting. Alan
Rickman as Snape was a good choice, but once again, WBros
had to add a nice little line wishing Potter good luck in the
Quiddich match!! TOTALLY out of character and unnecessary. Warner Bros had a wonderful opportunity to create a masterpiece,
but they stuffed it up!
Everyone has their own ideas about this story. We all have
visualized the Hobbits , Dwarves, wizards Orcs etc, so there was a
good chance that Jackson would offend most of us some of the
time with his portrayal of the characters. Even given the sections
left out, I though he did a stirling job with this monumental task,
and I think its a good job it was released after Harry Potter and the
Philosophers Stone, as that film would have seemed even more
disappointing if it was released later. I await with impatience the
release of film number two!
Set in the late 60's at the time of Apollo 11, this film
demonstrates the wit of the Australian psyche. The humour
is typically Australian, and it is delivered smoothly and with
no jarring or slapstick. For those who like the music of the
60's, you will enjoy the little cameos that appear throughout
this movie. The task that the Parkes Radio Telescope has
in communicating with Apollo 11 is demonstrated (with some obvious artistic license) and the marvelous research done by the Working Dog Film group is framed by
the archival footage from Australia and NASA. Those of us
old enough to remember Niel Armstrong's small step find
ourselves transported back in time to recount our own memories. There are quite a few real belly laughs in this
film. I saw it in a large theatre with only a handful of spare
seats. In at least one instance, the WHOLE theatre erupted
in completely uncontrolled laughter!! A sure sign of some
great writing and acting. In closing, I'd have to say that the
American National Anthem will from now on take on a whole new meaning!
I really enjoyed this film and thought that TLJ came through
with a strong performance without having to be seen as a
macho soldier. SLJ portrayed a career GI very well. However, I think that the tying-up of loose ends by text
messages at the end of the film was a cop out by the director. After building up a rage inside the mind of the
audience with the destruction of the tape, this should have
been resolved in some way.
A pretty pedestrian film where Hugh Grant plays himself---basically, as he always does, like 4 weddings, 9mths etc etc etc. Why must he type cast himself into a bumbling dickhead role like this all the time? I think the ladies will swoon over him and his body, but other than that, the film is oh so predictable and boring
