Hugo is a Winner!
Amazing story, characters, cinematography, costumes, cast, effects. Loved the story and how everyone filled out their roles. The Story was woven together so well you get sucked in and root for Hugo (Asa) and Chloe (Isabelle)to finish their adventure the right way. We had hoped for more out of the Automaton but OK with it's critical history and so glad it survived. Always new Martin Scorsese was a gifted director but other types of movies. He has proved himself again with this Excellent Family Production. We Would see it again without hesitation. Worth seeing and great for kids especially if they love adventures and have imaginations.
A Neverland that Never Delivers
My Wife & I really looked forward to this special show and were so disappointed. The characters were interesting in the beginning and then mostly not that likable. Plot so far off and jazzed up with low budget special effects from the original story that it was painful to watch at some points. The events in Neverland were so "Dark" that it was hard to feel good at the end. Poor editing for the TV-Commercial format were like they literally chopped scenes for commercials. The most abrupt ending going to credits and commercials for the next shows not appreciated. SyFy Channel used to do better. Wished we had back the (3)hours of viewing time for something better. Feel sorry for everyone who watched the full 4 hours with commercials.
The Expendables (2010)
Great on Action movie but short on Story
This is a great Action movie as in Great on Action but very short on story. I know it's not an awards type movie unless body count is a new category but it has some character development so you know the players but some characters were limited time in the movie. Great intro scene to the "job" with Bruce W. & Governor Arnold. It needed more story to help with the chaos and action the Expendables caused. So why did they name themselves the expendables??? Good chemistry with Sly, Jason & Jet and Mickey. Eric R. was a good Bad guy as the real heavy. Might make enough to do a sequel but it needs to have more story to get me interested. Hopefully they don't bother with any ideas of going 3-D. Too many movies out there in 3-D that shouldn't be already. Enjoy it for the pure Action movie it is. Nothing more.
Piranha 3D (2010)
Great Piranha Sequel but 3-D not worth it
I enjoyed this new sequell/remake. Good Characters, actors, script overall. Jerry O. was perfect as the Movie Director/Producer! Likable Characters for the Sheriff and her Kids and supporting cast. Would have been nice to see more of Christopher Lloyd too. Maybe in a sequel. And Kelly Brooke-What else can you say but she is Awesome on Film! Wish it was out in 2-D because it was not worth the extra $$ to watch with glasses. This was an Entertaining movie with lots of action, huge body count and some really mean fish. I might see it again if it gets out in 2-D. Don't go see it expecting an award for anything other than special effects. It's not that kind of movie. Just enjoy it for what it is.
August Rush (2007)
One of the Top 5 Movies in 2007!
What a great movie. Can't say enough about it. Great Story, performances, settings, editing and Soundtrack. You like August from the first time you see him in the boys home and on through his search for his parents. If you have trouble with viewing scenes with lots of camera motion, sit in back. The music in motion was incredible but sometimes hard to follow but the editing was so good- who cares. You see into each character more and more through the movie and keep hoping for the best. Has to be up for Best picture, Screenplay, Actor, Actress, Cinematography, soundtrack categories. Not just because of August but the Love Story and what happened to 2 young Musicians and their Lives. Would see it again in a second.
No Country for Old Men (2007)
Very Well Directed, excellent Performances by everyone. Tommy Lee Jones at his Best. Keeps you hanging in there for the Llewelyn. He and Anton are like Energizer Bunnies-They just keep taking it and come back for more. Llewellyn was always trying to do the right thing but the odds were so high against him. May be frustrating to some who want "Closure" and a different ending. Hope the DVD offers alternate endings. Still an Excellent movie to see. Nominations for Best Actors, Supporting Actors, Directors, and Movie for sure at the next Academy Awards. Too bad there has to be only (1) winner each. This movie keeps you thinking for a while so do something fun after-wards.
Anger Management (2003)
You may need AM after this movie!
We may need Anger Management after seeing this movie. All that Talent. All that potential. All those production resources. But for a pretty dark, not-very-funny-most-of-the-time movie, it was a waste of our time. Our Theater was 1/3 full of people Waiting to laugh.
They were so close to being funny, so many times. The slapstick scenes and hot and cold Wacko behavior, was not worthy of the talent put into the movie. If fingers were pointed- the Director and Writing staff should Be Ashamed. The over all message of the movie was clear but it was delivered badly.
Won't watch it again. Won't rent it either. Save your $$. Go watch "Analyze This" again to at least give you some real laughs.
Barely a 4 out of 10.
Easy to lose yourself in the Series.
What an excellent Mini-Series! After reading the book then seeing it come to life on TV, you can lose yourself in the Series. The Casting, Cinematography, Sets, Costumes and Acting were nothing less than Perfect.
You can actually learn some basic Japanese words and phrases from closely reading the book. James Clevell blended the Language lessons into Pilot's training and familiarization so well, you felt like you learned and felt with him. The Series did it almost as well but you were distracted by seeing living, breathing characters. The life and times were hard. The Barbarian world with the Unhealthy and downright odd beliefs and superstitions. Then the Ancient Culture of Japan, Brutal but with much beauty and creativity. Both full of Scheming, Evil, Honorable, Likeable, and Hateful characters.
I consider this the all-time #1 made for TV movie events. Too bad the voting scale only goes to 10.
Bringing Down the House (2003)
This is a Fun to watch movie. Some very funny parts. Steve, Queen and Eugene were great. Especially Eugene. He really got into his role of the Hip, swinging Lawyer Dude. Some parts were a stretch and seemed awkward but a good effort overall.
Worth a 6 out of 10.
The Life of David Gale (2003)
Makes you think hard about Capital punishment.
This was an excellent movie. Characters with substance. Likeable but with flaws. Very well acted. The plot and pace were good over-all. The Mystery man in the pickup truck kept you wondering what his intentions were all along. The last plot twist was not a total surprise but I don't know if it could have been done any different.
They keep you guessing until the end. Final scenes even make you speculate what the full agenda was.
We live in an imperfect world. Evidence can and will be used, or mis-used against you. Everyone has an agenda. Even those on Death Row.
A tough movie with a tough subject but Very worth while to see.
