was this supposed to be a horror or comedy?
I was really keen about seeing this movie since there was so much hype around it. But boy was this a big let down. Cut would have to be the unscariest movie I have ever seen and why would Molly Ringwald agree to star in it? She was really terrific as bitchy Vanessa and despite her giving a great performance you couldn't help but wonder if it was for her role or was she really thinking what a mistake she made?
It was weird hearing Kylie's Aussie accent again and despite her small role it would have to be her best role, well, since Neighbours.
Jessica Napier gave a good performance and will have a long term career but the rest of the cast were mediocre.
I did not find this movie scary one bit and my friends and I laughed the whole way through that we forgot that it was a horror film. The "story" behind the killer was very weak and the spook factor was very lacking. My advice is to avoid this at all costs.
Brokedown Palace (1999)
I saw this last night and it was one of the worst movies I have seen. Bill Pullman is a great actor but doing films like this doesn't give him the credit he deserves. Claire Danes gave a good performance but Kate Beckinsale was very weak and Daniel Lapaine was very good too despite limited screen time.
A few things was missing from this film that being tracking down Nick, exposing the corruption and finding out who of the two was responsible for the fiasco. Also the ending could have been better.
This was a huge let down and one to be avoided.
The Sixth Sense (1999)
The Sixth Sense would have to one of the greatest films ever. Everything from the writing, directing and the acting was superb. The fact that you couldn't pick the ending made it even more enjoyable - that's the films I like. If you know what is going to happen it sort of spoils the movie for you. I had to see it several times to pick up what I missed and seeing it for the second, third time etc etc makes you realize you should have seen it coming.
Bruce Willis is a legend. He is such a versatile actor and the fact that this movie made a lot of people stand up and take him seriously (which should have been done years ago) is very rewarding. Haley Joel Osment was amazing. No words can describe the performance he gave. He will definitely be around for a very long time. Toni Collette was also very good and the chemistry between her and Haley was unbelievable.
This movie will definitely go down as one of the best of the 20th century and should not be missed.
Not just your typical action movie
When I first saw this movie I was expecting all action no storyline but boy was I wrong. Armageddon has everything. A well written story, the special effects and the terrific acting. It was one of those films that make you care for the characters and you wanted them to win in the end.
Even though there were a few corny moments - it didn't dimish the fact that Armageddon is not your typical action movie. Even the music was very moving. Check it out if you haven't seen it as it would have to be one of the best in the action genre.
Never Been Kissed (1999)
Drew Barrymore at her comic best
Drew Barrymore is definitely one of todays best actors. Her performance in this movie is unbelievable. It makes you laugh and cry at the same time and It sure does bring back alot of those high school memories as I'm sure there is a Josie at every school.
David Arquette can do no wrong as well. He is just as likeable in this movie as he was in the Scream series. Molly Shannon, Michael Vartan & Leelee Sobieski were also good as too were Jeremy Jordan ( his song on the soundtrack is also worth a listen - quite a huge difference to his "right kind of love" days) & the girls playing Gibby, Kristen & Kirsten.Actually it is one of those rare films where the casting is spot on.
If you haven't seen this movie you sure don't know what you are missing because it is definitely one of the best in the "high school genre" of 1999 ( with American Pie) and it is one to add to your video collection.
Deep Blue Sea (1999)
Deep Blue Sea, despite some unbelievable moments, was quite an enjoyable movie. The casting was near perfect (with the exception of Saffron Burrows & Aussie Jacqueline Mackenzie). Samuel L Jackson gave a great performance as did LL Cool J, Thomas Jane & Michael Rappaport.
Renny Harlin is one of todays best directors and the special effects in this movie were quite amazing. It sure makes you think twice about venturing into the water.
Definitely the best in the series
I am a huge Friday fan and this one is definitely the best. Kane Hodder proves he is Jason Voorhies and his performance is so menacingly real. The fact that it takes place in Manhattan gives the series a real needed boost.Definitely worth a look if you haven't seen it.
The Breakfast Club (1985)
15 years on and still as memorable
This movie is John Hughes at his best. It is no wonder that 15 years on his 80s high school movies are still popular. Even in todays era with Dawsons Creek etc etc - his movies still rate a mention. Ally Sheedy was truly amazing. Even though she only spoke towards the end - she performance alone was mesmerising.
Judd Nelson was also fantastic and he is a very underrated actor. If you haven't seen this movie you don't know what you are missing as this one will sure go down in history as one of the best.
The Karate Kid, Part III (1989)
Better than Part II
The Karate Kid III was a lot better than Part II. The only good bit about Part II was the beginning with Johnny and his gang - maybe the plot should have revolved more around them as Part II definitely need William Zabka and Elisabeth Shue.
Anyway Part III brought us back to the original. Kreese wanted revenge for losing all his students. He enlists his old army buddy to train Daniel in order to get him to avenge his title. Another good factor was the relationship between Daniel and Miyagi - they are more like father and son and even though he kept quiet you could seen the pain in Miyagi's eyes when Daniel's personality became out of control.
My opinion is see Karate Kid II for the first 10 minutes then see Karate Kid III as it was a nice end to Daniel's story.
Really bad movie
I first saw Anaconda on a plane two years ago and because I had heard mixed reviews about it - I thought I would watch it. Hey, it had Eric Stolz and Ice Cube in it so of course it could not be bad. Well I was wrong. The Anacondas were so fake that the supposedly scary scenes were more like a comedy. It was funny seeing the reactions of the people on the plane. The older people took their headphones off and the younger people were laughing all the way through it.
Eric Stolz probably was the better performer in this movie even though he was out of action most of the film and Ice Cube and Jennifer Lopez gave good performances and it is good to see that this movie did not ruin their careers.
Jon Voight was the worst performer in this film I could not understand a word he was saying and it was so obvious how he managed to get on board.
This is one movie that you only need to see once and never again.
