One of the best movies ever
I'm often leery of book-to-film adaptions of books. Case-in-point was Dune; it strived very hard to be a good movie, but it just wasn't as good as its literary counterpart. This is not so with Lord of the Rings.
Peter Jackson has done a spectacular, amazing job at adapting the greatest fantasy book in history into an awesome film. Full of sweeping vistas, detailed sets and those moments of sheer, sheer terror, it captures the essence of every location in the book. Hobbiton, green and lush, vibrant with life; Rivendell, a sort of fragile beauty; Moria, dark, gritty and menacing; Lorien, quiet and breathtakingly stunning. I cannot describe the feeling I got as the Fellowship sailed down the Anduin past the Argonath.
I think the best part of the film is how it captured both Gollum and the Balrog: two characters difficult to bring to life, but Jackson's effects team went beyond every single one of my expectations in this case. You'll have to see it for yourself.
Everything from the evil of Saruman to the Eye of Mordor was done as true to the book as it possibly could have been, and I will definitely pardon Peter Jackson for the sacrifices he had to make to make the film flow well, despite the hefty three-hour length. And even so, I heard people saying "That's it? Where's the rest?"
I have to say the movie was worth every minute and every cent. If you haven't gone yet, you are missing out on something truly spectacular. Definitely worth the years of wait and the $8.75 ticket. 10/10
2001: A Space Travesty (2000)
This movie wasn't really all that good. Lame parodies, tired gags, and the same old Leslie Nielsen schtick. This is Naked Gun in Space, no more, no less. It's really no wonder that I haven't heard about this movie until its network television premiere.
Battlefield Earth (2000)
A Triumph of Money over Rational Thought
This movie is bad.
I don't mean bad in a cheesy, B-film cult classic kind of way. I mean BAD, a real stinkfest, the biggest bomb since Fat Man. This movie was so bad my unborn children hate me for seeing it.
This movie was an insult to the intelligence of all sentient beings. That term obviously already disqualifies John Travolta (Or should I say Revolta) as a member of the human race.
Implausible, poorly shot, poorly edited, poorly written and utterly grates on my nerves.
Battlefield Earth is the worst movie ever, and it proves that, in Hollywood, money can buy you everything. Even a sequel and a TV series.
The Church of Scientology strikes again, folks. Stay well away from this one.
One of my all-time favorites
Wibble. When it comes to surreal, intelligent comedy, Monty Python is tops. Especially in this film. Despite low budget and Graham's problem with alcohol, the sets were brilliant and Chapman shines as Arthur. My favorite scene has to be "The Knights who say Ni!", but it's closely followed by the French Taunting. John Cleese at his most arrogant! See this film if you're a fan of insanity.
Very Funny yet Sadly True
I found PCU to be one of the funniest films I've ever seen. It really does speak the truth about the typical American mindset these days: Protest Everything. PCU is one of those films most critics would use a doormat, but I loved it anyway. Something to watch before deciding what college you want to go to.
The End of Violence (1997)
It was a bit confusing, but interesting in a way. The scene cuts were too jumpy; I couldn't tell what was going on. The acting, however, was decent, but the plot was kinda...strange. An interesting idea, but this movie just doesn't develop it that much.
