Crop And Save
not as good as I was expecting
I saw this on my dvd. The people were too quiet and the sound effects too loud so I was continually fiddling with the remote.
The animation is ok, but not worth gushing over.
Story was not really all that interesting to me, I wasn't expecting a war epic like gasaraki.
But a solid bit of work none the less. 7 out of 10.
music was good.
The songs are great
Even though for an adult the story may seem a little silly this is still a great film. Children will adore it.
This movie has some brilliant songs. I dare anyone who listens to it not to start tapping their feet while listening to 'bad luck'.
The animation is ok (for a television flick) and is of the same standard as the rest of the sequels.
Dina and daina (who is apparently a boy) are very cute, if irritating to an adult audience .
I however think they are adorable.
Cera gets a bigger role in this movie (in babysitting the twins) and that is nice to see as she is a great female character. We don't see many strong female roles in movies and this is one where it is much appreciated.
Kids will like it and older fans will smile at it.
It also teaches children the importance of resposablity.
As a long time lbt fan (14 years now) I know I am slightly biased but none the less I think this movie is great!
Now even though I am a fan, I'm not blind. I know why many people may dislike the rest of the sequels. They may seem rather corny and irritating. But this movie is different.
One of the things that sets this apart from the other sequels is that the dialogue is not a childish as the others. And there are a few funny quotes thrown in as well.
such as "I dislike violence' 'then why did you hit me?"
It seems as if the creaters of this series are finally realising that just because it is a children's series does not mean all the things have to be utterly childish. There are a few scenes in this movie where references are made to later films. This is a good thing.
Another good point is that there are 2 mysteries in the movie. The first is why Petrie's uncle Tyranno is hated by the others and the other is why is up with the strange rainbow faces.
Even though I know what would happen, it was still interesting.
Focusing of kidnapping instead of natural disasters (which they are running out of ) this sets it's self apart from the others.
a solid 8/10
and kids (regardless of age) will love it :) even those who are as old as me (I'm 20)
One of the reasons I love this film is the song 'always there' where littlefoot sings a verse about his mother. That has NEVER happened before or since this movie was made and it brought a tear to my eye.
The other songs are fun, the art brightly coloured and it's action packed...What more could a fan want?
Well better voices for one. Chomper and littlefoot both sound like they have a cold. ahh well I can't be too picky.
Kids and long time fans will love it.
oh and chomper comes back too.
there was only one good thing in this movie....Mew2's eyes. and that is about it.
Now for me to say this about an animated film then you know it must be bad.
ok, animation aside (it is tv quality animation) the ending was awful. The fight scene should have gone on longer with Mew2 vs mew fighting properly instead of being in "balls" all the time.
And can you really like a movie which has such a mediocre ending??
I won't spoil it for you (although that's really hard to do).
Luckily for me I saw this on a video I brought my little brother...I pity ANYONE who had to waste money on going to see this in the cinema.
But I dare say all the 0-6 year old pokemon fans will love it. Hey if you can like such a crap show then the crap movie will equal it.
Pitch Black (2000)
Killer shovels from outer space!!
How to make the aliens for this movie.
1. add one alien from (the movie aliens) 2 add a garden shovel 3 a few litres of blue paint (for blood)
and voila YOU GET THE ALIENS FOR THIS MOVIE
And my weren't they good!
I liked this movie I found it entertaining. However I thought the blue and yellow `tint' they put on it made the movie look like it was a cheaply made (which it wasn't).
It was slow to start but impoved...however. It would have been better if we had a great chase scene with them getting attacked on all side. Sadly this didn't happen and most of the time our evil hammer-headed killer shovels were hidden in the darkness.
Great movie however I didn't like the way they delt with one of the characters.You will know what I mean when you see the ending, and I'm not going to spoilt it for you :)
and I loved the aliens....even if they did looks like killer shovels from hell ..
Beauty and the Beast (1991)
The best movie disney has ever made!!
And it is very true!!!
It has everything-
brilliant detiled animation of high quality
good voice acting
great dialogue (I know every part off by heart)
and a good storyline
Disney has never made any movie up to the quality of this
Aladin and The Lion king came close but lacked the beauty, grace and FEELING this had.
This is truly a film for all ages.
I am 19 and I still love it....
The Iron Giant (1999)
If it weren't for the animation I would give it a 10!!
Which is basically it. When you compare this type of animation with (dare I even mention it) Disney you feel quite let down. The people are unrealistic but this can be tolerated because they are stylised, which is fine if you like that sort of thing. Some of the backgrounds ARE beautiful especially the sea and snow, it is also nice to see how the weather and seasons slowly change throughout the film.
The main problem (as I see it) is that some objects, especially the cars and quite noticeably the tractor looks 2 dimensional. This is the first time I have ever noticed this on ANY movie. I suppose it is because the quality of animation does not match the background.
The actual robot is computer animated but because he is put into a movie with low quality animation you simply don't notice it, instead the robot looks like he was drawn with great care by a skilled animator (with normal animation) and then placed in TV quality animation.
But I am afraid I am just being picky the quality of animation is unlike don Bluth or Disney but it is effective. After 10 or 20 minutes you forget about the animation and fall in love with the story.
This is one movie where the STORYLINE TOOK PLACE OVER THE EFFECTS AND ANIMATION. Which is a nice change especially since the horrible trash Disney produced last year with Tazan. This is what made it such a pleasure to watch.
It is a touching film in which I dare anyone to view and not feel compassion for the giant robot with a big heart. The animators did a noticeably good job at making a ridged iron face show warmth and love .
(WARNING THE NEXT FEW LINE MAY CONTIAN MINOR SPIOLERS DEPENDING ON YOUR OWN POINT OF VIEW)
The part when he prodded the dead dear and when he thought the boy was dead was quite frankly a masterpiece of effort. It is this sort of atmosphere that so many modern animated films lack. The LAND BEFORE TIME showed this depth of sadness and it can be seen with this film as well. To really enjoy a happy ending you must first feel sadness and pain. This is how I feel anyway a sad part in a film is essential for getting it's audience to care about it's characters.
I gave this movie 9 out of 10, because I really do think the quality of animation (not the style the quality) could have been improved.
But the best comment I can make on this movie is this- I asked my little 7 year old brother whether he liked the movie or not and he said `I WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN' . He had never said that about any movie he has seen. So I can think of no higher praise for such a brilliant movie.
Galaxy Quest (1999)
If you have low expections you will like this.
I saw this movie yesterday and having read poor reviews of it I did not have any great expectations for it.
Well I was pleasently suprised.
This is a very entertaining movie....BUT and it's a big but it should not be seen as JUST a comedy. The advertisement for it proclaimed it was a comedy.
but if you are expecting a laugh a miniute then you will be dissapointed. It IS funny but only in some parts.
I would therefore regard this movie as a si-fi adventure that had star trek satire in it. Even if you removed the comedy it would still be a good movie (not great mind you but watchable)
I was expecting far more satire in it thoughm, I mean the jokes could be limitless.
The acting was good and the special effects were of a high standard. Alot better than the latest star trek movie.
I give 2 thumbs up for the makeup department. The bad guys had extreamly good quality and IMAGINITIVE costumes. Thereticaly this could have been made into a serious movie (just make them real heros instead of actors) and it would still work. I give this an 8/ 10 you will be entertained
Scream 3 (2000)
Utterly predictable nonscream movie
This movie is very predictable, I kept predicting what would happen all through the movie and 90% of the time I was right!
The first one was marginally scary...the second the same....but this movie lets the down the whole trilogy.
I was expecting more suspence, gore and scares, but instead I was given a slow movie with little suprises.
Yes admitadly a few people in the audience and screamed but I certaily didn't.
However it is still enjoyable entertainment and is funny in parts.
My pet peive was that they had to pick such a loathsome person/character for the woman who played an actor impersonating the journlist woman (Dewy's girlfriend).
MINOR SPOILER ALERT (depending on your own oppinions)
I was not impressed with finding out who the killer was in the end..it should have been someone else. I thought from the start it was her mother and I was actually disapointed at finding out it wasn't her...pity and it would have been even better if they killed off all of the 3 main characters as well.
I give this 6/10 stars <..>
