Kirsten Dunst is definitely the biggest attraction for people to see this
one. But no matter how hard she tried, she just couldn't bring this movie
on. Blame it on the bad scripts and bad directing!
And I don't know why they even bother to get Jesse Bradford to play a forgettable role. It's a waste of his talent!
The competition itself is not as grand as I expected it to be. Basically, the whole movie just fell flat on my face. A very passable movie that you can just rent when you have nothing to do and only want to be entertained by bouncing girls.
I'm not an X-Men fan, but I was overblown by this movie. The cast, setting,
costume, storyline, and everything else is perfect! I guess Bryan Singer
really did a good job here.
Hugh Jackman is perfect as Wolverine, and I could not imagine him playing other role, nor another person playing this role. Wolverine is not my favorite character though, but obviously he's the director's favorite because the whole movie revolves around him.
James Marsden is the perfect Cyclops, unlike other people's suggestion. He would be great playing Spiderman too, but somehow the role goes to Tobey Maguire.
Other casts also suit perfectly into their alter-egos. I don't see any flaws in this area.
The storyline is perfect, not too ordinary, not too draggy. It would be hard to achieve the same standard should they decide to come up with a sequel (or sequels...).
Firstly, this movie is meant only for people who are into fantasy, so if you
don't like this genre, don't bother to see this one. The setting was quite
decent and the graphics was not bad. However, the plot was too ordinary.
Some more twists would be helpful.
Another problem was that the villain spoke too slow, which I found extremely irritating. All their actions were also too slow.
Justin Whalin showed great acting talent, even though I still think that he was not that suitable for the role. Other casts were not doing well.
Thora Birch was surprisingly acting quite badly. I could barely guess why. Especially after seeing her in "Monkey Trouble" and "American Beauty" (forget "Alaska"...)
Zoe McLellan did better than her, even though she was not on a par with Justin Whalin during their quarreling scene.
Jeremy Irons was too comfortable with his previous role of Scar in "The Lion King" that he also failed to portray the main villain Profion.
Marlon Wayans tried to be funny now and then, but the scripts weren't that funny. Too bad...
Other characters were not that essential and I felt that they were there for the sake of being there.
It's a good effort though, coming up with this rare genre. I hope there are more to come and better.
If you expect this movie to be hilarious and full of funny moments as shown
on the trailer, you're wrong big time! I don't know why they tried to
instill this idea to the audience, but I know that it is not the right thing
Anyway, this movie will be better if it was categorized as "Drama". At least I could have been more prepared. I went to see this expecting to laugh my heart out, but it was such a gloomy and sad movie that I didn't know what to do next. And I felt terribly sorry for dragging my friends along, telling them that this one would be funny.
The story is not bad at all. Jason Biggs was doing a decent job in portraying Paul the Loser. But that's about it!
This latest Disney animation feature was funnier and wittier than what I
expected it to be! Thanks to David Spade as the voice of Emperor Kuzco! He
once again proved to the world that he is the King of Sarcasm!
I won't recommend this movie to kids though, because most of the jokes are more suitable for mature audience. Hey, you don't want your kid ends up like Kuzco, do you?
Whether or not your a fan of David Spade's or Disney's, this movie is worth seeing!
I was expecting this movie to be funny after I saw the trailer, but boy I was wrong! The movie is not funny at all, except for one scene at the Chinese restaurant. Moreover, this movie is full of dumb guys and gals! But I must say that the two leads were doing well, and they were brave enough to do that particular car scene that will surprise the audience (no, I'm not telling you...). Anyway, you can always rent this one instead of seeing it in the cinema!
I didn't expect much when I went to see this movie. Just wanted to have some
laughs after a hard day at work. But it turned out to be much better than
I thought it would be filled with stupid jokes and slapstick comedies, but it actually has funny dialogs and memorable moments! This is a tamer version of "100 Girls". It's about women and how men can't seem to understand them.
But in this movie, Mel Gibson's character just happened to be able to listen to women's thoughts. What if it happened to all men? I guess it will only make the world even messier than before.
Mel Gibson's performance is not that good, overshadowed by Helen Hunt, even though she's not the main character in the movie. But I have to give credit to his dancing. It was great!
The songs are quite nice, but the plot is not really new. Everybody can guess the ending, but it doesn't stop this movie from being entertaining!
Well, this is another pointless movie with pointless scenes and pointless
dialogues. 'It is about life!' you will say. Wake up and smell the
I don't understand why people rate this movie that high and say that this one is 'the best movie of 2000'. As far as I can see, it's only about violence with a plot that is going nowhere.
It's not recommended at all, unless you are so violent that you can kill people and laugh about it.
The cinematography, on the other hand, is good. Partly because of the settings. The acting is OK, nothing spectacular, except for Juliette Lewis.
My advice, don't bother seeing it, not to mention owning it...
I think the only reason why this movie didn't get any OSCAR was because it's
a horror movie! But if you compare it to that year's winner, "American
Beauty", this movie is actually better.
The scripts and the directing are genuinely intelligent. Although the ending was quite predictable, but some people won't realize it until towards the end of the movie. Clues were actually given all over the movie, which were later on explained in the DVD version.
Haley Joel Osment was brilliant. Bruce Willis was better than average, which he couldn't achieve in his other movies, such as "Unbreakable", also by the M. Night Shyamalan.
This movie is for everybody. You will enjoy it even though you don't like horror movie. Trust me!
From all the French movies I've seen, this one is quite different. When I
say different, I mean that this movie has faster pace compared to other
French movie that are usually slow-moving.
The events folded seamlessly and the acting of the three main actors were great, with one flaw. Stanislas Merhar was supposed to look normal, not effeminate, according to the script, and according to Miou-Miou's character. However, he still looked very effeminate. I don't know if that was the real him or that was what the director wanted him to be.
On the contrary, the ending was not that good. I think it was because the writer wanted to end the story, but didn't know how to end it logically. Anyway, this movie is worth seeing.
