CSI: Miami: High Octane (2006)
I'm no rocket scientist, but
I used to work at a government fuel terminal that supplied fuel to military bases in the Southeast. We had "jet fuel" JP-4 which was actually used in jets, and JP-5 which was much like kerosene and mainly used in helicopters. Occasionally tug boats/barges that delivered fuel to us that also had av/gas on board. You could burn av/gas in your car, but heaven help you if you tried to use JP-4 or JP-5! I did allow the guys who I worked with to put av/gas in my car, but I didn't notice any difference in performance. Of course I had a 1962 Chevy Biscayne, so performance wasn't a strong point anyway.
I noticed on the show that they used the terms aviation fuel and jet fuel interchangeably. That's just wrong! Thus, this show is far-fetched. I only gave it a "2" because of the cool cars and cute guys! (BTW, I'm female)
Great version of story
I liked everything about the movie except that the Oompa Loompa singing was somewhat annoying. It was so high-pitched it was hard to understand the lyrics, although the parts I COULD understand were very clever.
The Depp/Burton version is more reflective of the dark humor characteristic of Dahl's writing.
The references I've seen to Michael Jackson are simply reflections of our time. Willy Wonka was actually the opposite of a pedophile, if you examine him more closely you'll see that he didn't really care too much for children. That's part of the irony of it being a "children's story."
Big Fish (2003)
9/10--A Breath of Fresh Air
It's too bad some people don't like this movie. With the attention span some people have nowadays if there isn't an explosion or nude scene every 5 minutes they lose interest.
This movie was great. Albert Finney (the older Bloom) was superb and makes me wish he was my father. It would be great to have a relative with such a vivid imagination and rich life. It's the kind of film you need to watch a few times to see the connectedness of the different parts. I loved it.
There's Something About Mary (1998)
One of my all-time favorites
This is such a wonderful, feel-good movie. Everyone wants Mary and all of us women would like to BE Mary. I watch this movie whenever I get depressed and I can't help feeling better. Isn't that what good entertainment is all about?
Most suspenseful movie I've seen since "The Shining."
It was not all that difficult to figure out what was going to happen, but that didn't detract from the edge-of-your seat suspense. I screamed out loud in one part. Bill Paxton was amazing. He had me believing there really might be demons. Don't go to the 10:30 p.m. showing like I did--that's why I'm still up and online!
