Absolute Power (1997)
Interesting, but needs major improvement.
Absolute Power has a very clever and interesting story, about a professional jewel theif who finds murderous secrets at a billionaire's home. But, it really needs major improvement, the film is often too dull for it's own good, and it is far too long and has a boringly unexpected finale. However, there is an upside to this movie, it is very clever, and the acting from Clint Eastwood and Gene Hackman shows effort and skill.
Overall, Absolute Power is not a bad movie. It will keep you entertained for a couple of hours, but it is not a memorable or brilliant experience.
Runaway Bride (1999)
I was expecting Runaway Bride to be as good as Pretty Woman, it has an excellent cast, a good idea and a great director. However, Runaway Bride is no Pretty Woman. It is a boring, silly, annoying and pointless piece of cinema that is very hard to like. It is quite hard to pick out any good bits in this movie, and from the very start, you can tell it is going to be almost unbearable to watch. Runaway Bride is overall an unfunny, uncharming, undelightful and absolute terrible film that you shouldn't waste your time over.
And hey, I can't even give it an extra point for the acting.
A Bit Disappointing, But Not Totally Bad.
I wasn't expecting Entrapment to be all that good, but it was certainly better than I expected. Although it is not a great movie, Entrapment never fails to entertain. Most of the performances are good, Catherine Zeta-Jones is awesome in her part of the daring secret agent, while Sean Connery was cast perfectly as the Irish art theif. Ving Rhames did a pretty good job in his supporting role also. The sound and editing are remarkbale in this movie, and also the cinematography is lovely.
Entrapment is highly recommended for action fans and Catherine Zeta-Jones freaks.
I thought Dogma didn't look like a totally great movie, so I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did. But, it is totally hard to ignore the fact that Dogma is a gem. I love everything about this flick, I especially enjoyed watching the incredible performances which were played by a variety of awesomely well-known actors. Linda Fiorientino was superb, Chris Rock was awesome, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon were two of the coolest bad-asses in a long time, Alan Rickman never failed to impress and the extremely talented singer Alanis Morissette was suprisingly excellent in her small but strongly satisfying role. But, this is really Kevin Smith's movie, his script is original, bewildering and weirdly touching. His direction was once again awesome, and his quitely brilliant performance sparkled.
Highly recommend, Dogma is a suprisingly original and unmissable movie!
The Haunting (1999)
One of the worst films of 1999.
From the very start of The Haunting, I could tell I was going to dislike it. By the end, I was thinking it was one hell of a terrible film, and easily one of the worst of 1999. It is alot like the recent Battlefield: Earth, there is absolutely nothing here you can take seriously. The script is laughable, the special effects were a joke, the acting was awful, and the direction was effortless. Like I said, there is nothing here you can take seriously, nor anything you can like.
If as much effort went into Catherine Zeta-Jone's wardrobe as went into this film, they would of been on to a winner.
The Sixth Sense (1999)
A Brilliant, Incredible Masterpiece.
I hadn't heard much about The Sixth Sense before I saw it, so I wasn't exactly expecting a great movie. But The Sixth Sense was beyond a great movie, it was a flippin' incredible one! Haley Joel Osment put on the best performance by a young actor I have ever seen, while Toni Colette and Bruce Willis were strong leading performers. And I truly love M. Night Shamalyn's script, the idea of a boy seeing ghosts is ingenious, and it is one of my favourite scripts of 1999. M. Night Shamalyn also put heaps of effort into directing this film, he shows much promise for the future.
See this brilliant masterpiece NOW.
Disturbing Behavior (1998)
Just A Chill-Out, Fun Movie.
The first time I saw Disturbing Behaviour, I thought, what the hell is this crap? But recently I watched it for a second time and I must admit I had a blast watching it. The idea of the film was very silly but original and engaging and the acting skills were average, Nick Stahl really shined as Gavin in particular and Katie Holmes was also impressive as Rachel. But there is a few faults in Disturbing Behaviour, sometimes the scenes that are supposed to be scary made you laugh, especially the end.
Overall, Disturbing Behaviour is a stupid, fun, chill-out movie I recommend for people who want to do just that.
Teaching Mrs. Tingle (1999)
A Huge Disappointment.
I am an absolutely huge fan of Kevin Williamson, he always thinks up cool scripts, great ideas and memorable lines. However, this movie came as a huge disappointment. I thought this movie would be double everything else he has done, because he would be writing and directing. But, unfortunately, it was far worse than anything else he has ever done. The story is pretty lame and far-fetched and this film is never scary and hardly ever funny. Mostly it is only the acting skills from Katie Holmes, Barry Watson and newcomer Marisa Coughlan that are totally impressive.
Teaching Mrs. Tingle is a movie I tried really, really hard to like but it is even harder not to dislike it.
Awesome, Creative and Extremely Watchable.
I really enjoyed Ravenous. It had lots of thrills, chills and dark jokes that kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. The performances were very impressive, Guy Pearce was quietly awesome, Robert Carlyle was brilliant as always and David Arquette was great in his small but well-played role. I also love this screenplay, it is clever, creative and never annoying. Ravenous is an awesome and extremely watchable but horrifying film I highly recommend to all viewers.
I guarantee you won't stop thinking about this movie for hours after you see it. It is one of the best horror films of 1999.
A Superbly Entertaining Film!
I wasn't very fimiliar with the comic, so I wasn't expecting to like X-Men as much as I did. But I really enjoyed this superbly entertaining film, it is one of the best movies I have seen in quite some time. The acting was very satisfying, New Zealander Anna Paquin in particular gave another sparkling performance. The writing and screenplay were very good, Bryan Singer put lots of effort into this film. But, mostly, it is the technical things that made this movie. The sound was amazingly convincing, the visual effects were stunning and the editing was very noticeable and put to perfection.
Sure to be one of the best films of 2000, I highly recommend X-Men to all movie-goer's.
