After having just sat through a rather interesting sequel, I thought I
should give my two cents on it. If you look at my voting on this, I gave it
a 7 mainly due to special effects, along with strong performances from Janet
Jackson, nice to see her on screen, as well as Eddie Murphy who played just
However, it most certainly could've done better (overall I think it did a
good job), but in all fairness, it had a lot of shoes to fill sort of speak
because of the first Nutty Professor Movie, which I thought was just
outright funny and gave a good spin on the Jerry Lewis classic. This second
run of the mill for Professor lacked the spontaneity and zest of the first
film, where the feeling of "been there done that" more of less plagued me
throughout the film. Don't get me wrong though, it did have it moments to
try and stay interesting and make up for the lags, not only from what I
mentioned above, but three classic scenes in particular were: the opening
dream sequence, the gerbil mishap at the presentation, and the final
sequence with the Professor getting his revenge on Buddy.
Overall if you're a fan of this Saturday Night veteran or a nutty professor fan, you're sure to like this movie. I would most certainly look forward to a third Nutty Professor Film.

This being the second of three specials over a period of 7 years, probably
ranks as my second favorite, mainly because of Sandra Bullock!!!! She
had a great role and her sexy outfit didn't hurt either! It was good to see
Lee Majors and Lindsey Wagner, the originals return as well to show they
still are the best.
Overall rating 3 out of 5
Lee Majors as Colonel Austin has always been one of my favorite actors /
characters!!! If you're a big fan like me, you'll be sure to enjoy this
special. Ever since the Original Series went off the air, The three TV
specials that aired, this being one of the three, really don't sum up the
awe and power that the character of Steve Austin has. However, it was good
to see Colonel Austin and his team back in Action, great action sequences
and a captivating story-line, reminded me of the great 80s shows like
Rider, The A-Team, and countless others.

Being a Jim Carey Fan and a comedy fan, I was very much looking forward to
this movie. Turned out, I had no idea what I was in store for, IT WAS A
VERY FUNNY MOVIE! My two favorites scenes are the speeding ticket scene with
the cop and the elevator scene with him and the beautiful brunette; Not to
mention there are quite the handful of classic moments in the film, the
scene with him and his son at the school playground is a good one as well as
the scene with him and the magic marker as well. If you are a Jim Carey
Fan, this is a must see, assuredly one of his most outstanding performances
as a great comedic actor. If you're simply a comedy, I think the comedian
in you with appreciate some of, if not the majority of the humor in
Overall Rating, 4.5 out of 5!
I must say, going into this movie I had some preconceived expectations and
pretty high desire to see this, based on the fact that I am a huge science
fiction fan as well as a technology / special effects fan. Overall, I was
pleasantly surprised by the film, mainly because of the style of the story
telling. It was at the present and went back several months and then came
back up to the present, which is a method of storytelling I enjoy the
On top of the that, performances by Mr. Chase, Ms. Hannah, and Mr. Neil,
were all top-notch. Special Effects too thrown in were top notch as well,
not only cause we were dealing with an invisible man, but we got the
viewpoint from two sides, that from the main actor's standpoint (played by
Chevy Chase) but from that of how others saw him, or rather how they didn't
see him. By the end of the movie, I felt sorry for Nick but at the same
time I wanted to be him.
For a good family movie with mystery, suspense, comedy, and some drama, you won't be disappointed in checking out this rare gem. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
What an offbeat comedy! Performances by John Ritter, his wife in the movie
(I loved her and Robin Williams in M&M), Eugene Levy and the remote control
salesman (I love that guy!) were good, the plot was intriguing, and the
characters were believable! Overall the movie was interesting, kept you
involved with the characters, and really gave the audience a shockingly
no-doubt accurate third-person view of America's TV Obsession.

I happen to come across this one on my recent trip to my local video
store and I was VERY pleasantly surprised. Being mainly a Jackie Fan when
it comes to action movies, somehow though it seemed I had missed this one,
not surprising at all since I seem to come across more and more of his
titles after since Rumble in the Bronx and just like everyone else, I can't
get enough of Jackie!!!
Overall, the movie flowed very nicely. There was very witty dialog, a
great story-line (who can't excited when pirates are involved!), and
unparalleled action sequences with not only the movie in general, but add to
that the scene with Martial Law's Mr. Hung and the bicycle chase scene about
half way through the most just adds even more to the fact why I think this
movie is definitely up there in the top 5 Jackie movies of all
Overall rating 6 out of 5, you won't be disappointed with Jackie Starring and Directing in this one, as he most often does, and does well!
If only the average movie going experience could be this good! When going down to the Florida area just a few short years ago, nothing could've prepared my friends and I for what we would find at Universal Studios Florida!! This by far has to be the best movie / Terminator experience I ever had! If you are ever in the Walt Disney / Universal Studios area, YOU MUST CHECK THIS OUT! Special Effects, good story line, mystery and intrigue all make this is MUST SEE when there!
If you happen to check my movie rating on this movie, you'll notice I gave
it a big emphatically high 10, there are a few reasons
1) The script and story was TOP-NOTCH, kept me interested from beginning to end, in some spots simply being in mental anguish just waiting to see what was going to happen next.
2) The Fight sequences with Wolverine should be noted by themselves, they were awesome and very well choreographed. The precision timing that was executed was very impressive to watch.
3) I can't forget Special Effects, and oh man, were they ever good, the weather sequences from Storm, the train tearing apart and the gun sequence with Magneto, all scenes with Mystique, and who could forget the statue of liberty scene.
Finally, the most important is no. 4:
4) The overall message that the movie conveys is important to admire, appreciate, and point out as well. I think it easily explains the draw of so many fans quite simply. That message is that of the profoundness and power that can be brought forth from universal acceptance or respect for our fellow man and woman, which most assuredly helped drive all the numbers listed above!
My final thought on this is if you looking for a good movie to take the family to see, consider the X-men a definite worthwhile time. Also, if more people today in our own society could exhibit such profound and passionate humanitarian qualities as Charles Xavier, the world without a doubt would be a better place for all of us to live in.
OVERALL RATING: 5 out of 5
After having seen Gladiator earlier this year, I wasn't sure there was a
movie that would be able to come even the smallest amount close to matching
the same quality visual effects, realistic and enriching story-line, high
performance scene deliveries, as well just an overall great movie! Well, the
patriot most certainly and pleasantly surprised me! With it being the same
length as Gladiator, I hardly even noticed it to be quite honest, the plot
kept me hooked from beginning to end! THIS IS, BY FAR, A MUST SEE MOVIE OF
Overall Rating, 6 out of 5 stars!
