Brother Bear (2003)
A "BEAR-ry" Delightful Film.
Warning: MINOR SPOILERS
This are some of the reasons why I am a huge Disney fun.
Disney, has yet again wave its magic wand and created some wonders. Brother Bear is one of those wonders, and will go down as one of Disney's finest creations.
Brother Bear is the story of a person, a native American - Indian, desperate for revenge,who was magically transformed into a bear. The only thing that can change him back to his human form, is to go to a place where "lights touches the earth". He then began his amazing, incredible journey into finding the "lights" - and eventually finding his own self.
As every Disney film, a touch of comedy and colorful characters were added to this film to reach out the younger viewers. Contrary to most Disney's fairy tales, most of it's non-traditional movies (Lion King, Lilo and Stitch) follows a very simple pattern: Entertain and Educate. Most fairy tales are basically based on magics, princess, warriors; mainly made to entertain us and to remind us of our childhood fantasies; where a princess and his knight in shining armor overcomes many obstacles and in the end lives happily ever after. A few films made by Disney has made us laugh along the way and yet delivers a very strong message. Messages that teach us in a very entertaining way - the Disney way.
Brother Bear's message was simply the form of acceptance and understanding. Disney may have delivered it in a very unique way, but the main point of the message is still very strong. In today's society, many of us are caught up with our own ignorance, our lack or our own understanding towards others, or our own passion for revenge, usually blinds us from the truth. One of the main characters said "bears do not feel anything, they are stupid.." is a symbolic approach of how humans hate things they do not consider "normal" or like them. As the story goes along, The human transformed into a bear, saw how bears live and interact with each other. He saw a side of the bears he never saw before. He then realize that beyond the grizzly, terrifying features of the animals is just one part. His previous thoughts about how he labeled bears being "monsters" while he was still human, completely change when he saw how these animals live - a lifestyle no farther from humans.
Simply put, Don't be too quick judging others. What you see is just one part; you haven't seen the part we share together. Brother Bear, I must say, is one of the few animated film that teaches us lessons we need to learn.
Many may have given this film some very poor ratings and some may say it's not one of Disney's greatest films. Do yourself a favor and get past all the negativity. May not be one of the best, but rest assured you won't leave dissatisfied. Treat yourself for some wholesome laughter and genuine lessons.
Rating: 10 out of 10. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Men in Black II (2002)
HEADLINES: MIB BREAK-UP.
This just in: "Sources just declared the break-up of one powerful duo- MIB. More at 6 o'clock"
Okay, what the hell is going on in Hollywood? Already I've seen enough bad sequels that would last me for a lifetime. Every movie sequel I watch, I would always come out of the movie theaters disappointed. Haven't they learned that most sequels DO NOT SURVIVE! Why do most people behind the camera thinks that if they make one great movie, the next logical step is to make a sequel. This formula never works!
Men In Black 2 is one of the many trashy sequels ever made. The first one was already a hit, why follow it up with this? Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones is one powerful, funny duo, but in this film, they played some really tasteless, boring, dry characters. The duo magic that was present on the first part is now gone. Combined this with one terrible, poor storyline and you got one recipe for a "Sequel Disaster".
To all producers, writers involve, please let's just leave this great films alone. Making a sequel is one great risk and almost everytime, it doesn't work. Take a lesson.
3 stars out of 10.
Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002)
Austin just lost his powers..
Yet another trashy sequel.
Aside from few laughs now and then, I was basically quiet the whole time. I really thought that this film would be even funnier than the first two, but this was really a big disappointment. While watching the previews, I can't even wait to see this film. When I finally saw it, I wish that I should have waited for it to come out on video. Mike Myers is one terrific actor and one funny comedian, but despite his talented acting skills, he himself couldn't even save this film. Beyonce is a very beautiful, sexy talented musician, but she really should stay in the music business. Even with the cameos of some of the big names in hollywood, did nothing to help this rather poor, trashy film. This film only proves that most sequels to great movies do not survive. If they ever make another installment of Austin Powers, let this be a lesson to all parties involve. Another poor film, and Austin Powers might not even survive.
4 stars out of 10
Is this film even legal?
Oh, I was very disappointed after watching this film. This movie has yet to be another victim of the "sequel" curse. What happened??
I loved the first part. Good story line, terrific humor, and Reese Witherspoon is such a talented actress. Legally Blond, was a very funny, sweet film. The sequel however is such a disappointment. Reese's character totally lost her touch in this film. I'm not even impress anymore. I'm sorry, but her character portrayed on how really dumb the blonds are, not to mention quite very annoying. I really thought this film would be funnier as the first one, but clearly I was wrong. This film is a waste of time and money. Might contain some funny highlights but overall tasteless and boring.
Go watch this film on video.

American Wedding (2003)
Don't serve this "PIE" again.
One question: WHY THEY DIDN'T STOP AFTER THE FIRST AMERICAN PIE?
C'mon people, American Pie 2 was already bad enough, then came "American Wedding'? I may be wrong, but this has to be the worst movie I've seen this year. Aside from the fact that most of the original characters are gone, this film is tasteless, boring, and it's not even funny. Full of crappy jokes and very predictable efforts to make the audience laugh. And what in the world those writers were thinking when they were writing the script? They think that by making this film more nastier than the first two parts, this movie will still have the "American Pie" magic? NEWSFLASH: The magic's gone! Even Jim's dad is not that tasteful anymore. He is one boring character. This film is basically a waste of time and a very cheap addition to the American Pie Saga, if you call it that way.
If you want some tasteful, intelligent humor, avoid this film. And if you really want to see this, wait for it on TV, that way you'll see this film without spending a dime.
1/2 star out of 10 stars..... for the effort.
Finding Nemo (2003)
"I'm having fish tonight!"
Whoa! I couldn't even remembered the last time I laughed so hard like I did watching this film.
I must say, Disney has done its wonders again! Finding Nemo, in my own opinion, surpass every computer-generated animations. Although they are also Disney & Pixar's incredible works, Toy Story and A Bugs Life never gave me so much fun and excitement as Finding Nemo did.
- and Dory? The best character ever! I LOVE THAT FISH!! from her short term memory loss to that "whale talk" she did, I was basically on the floor with laughter. The sharks, "Marlin", the seagulls - "Mine, mine", the whole aquarium gang, the "little crab", the turtles, "Nemo" combined with a terrific plot and incredible computer graphics and effects made this whole film one of the best Disney & Pixar's film. Worth your time and money. Lots of laughter - Guaranteed!
Rating: Totally awesome, DUDE!
The Ring (2002)
Okay, now I'm scared!
Okay, this film is sure freaky! I must admit that this movie gave me the creeps, and just blew me off right there and then. Performances of such very talented actors gave this film it's life and brought this film close to a scary reality. This is not your average horror flick, where you can find some psychotic killer running around slashing its victims. No, this is way better, no annoying, freakish music to warned you when it's going to hit you, it just happens - and that's the scary part. This movie pushed the the world of horror films to the next level. Very scary.
So, thumbs up to the cast and crew of this film. Well done performances. Highly recommended.
Jason X (2001)
Jason should have stayed in hell.
Now I don't know if I watched the same movie or a completely different one. I must admit that I am surprised to see that some IMDB members gave this poor film some "positive" feedbacks. Did they really watched the film?
Okay, first of all, I've seen all the previous parts of the "Jason" series and each and every film was good. This film lacks the same excitement and thrill all the previous parts had. What happened?? New writers? They couldn't think of a more better plot than this? also, who the hell came up with the idea of Jason terrorizing people in the future, not to mention in space? And what's up with the cheap-fake-aluminum-terminator-wannabe costume? Plus, annoying characters. Kay-Em14? Is this the best they could come up with?
Okay, now don't get me wrong, beneath all that, there was still a good part ---- THE END CREDITS! -
Rating: Avoid at all cost!
The Lion King (1994)
Once again, Disney has done it again. The Lion King will go down in history books as one of Disney's great animated films. The voices of such very talented actors, it's brilliant artistry, together with it's humorous and good moral lessons made this film one of the classic masterpiece of the animated world.
Truly one of the best. A great film for the whole family. Highly recommended.
The Power of Three
Okay, I just watched one episode a few week ago, and that was it for me. I AM HOOKED! I admit that this show is very addicting! Now, my Sunday's night are booked.
Performances of such talented actors truly ignites the screen. Piper, Phoebe, Paige, Leo, and Cole are such great, and very talented performers. I hope this show will run for a very, very long time. I will truly recommend this show to all my friends. Thumbs up to the creator, writers and all the crew. This show rocks!!!!
