The Others (2001)
This movie is not like all the others!
For this movie to be in the top 250 is a stretch! It made me feel uncomfortable just watching it! I'll agree, at times it could get spooky, creepy, and a little suspenseful - but C'MON!!!! This movie could have easily been done in a half hour and all the good scenes would not have to be edited out! I thought Nicole Kidman was playing the part of my aunt Ginny in this flick! I guess I feel uncomfortable watching a woman be over-bearing to her kids that she "claims" she loves and subjects them to cruel punishment.
The ending to the movie explains basically what's happening during the rest of it. This is the kind of movie you need to watch a second time to get the whole picture, but let me ask you something - Why would you? Ghost or Human, after a thousand hints, I would believe SOMETHING was going on! But then again, when you see women like Nichole Philpot live in this world, you would believe Nicole Kidman would play a character THAT messed up to actually believe it was "just the wind". MAN!!!
If I did not wake up in a cold sweat dreaming about my aunt at nights after watching this I may have given this a "4", but unfortunately I do, so I gave it a "2" not to only show my displeasure of this movie, but to get it out of the top 250! And just to let you know, my brother watched this movie too and let me tell you - he will not be as generous on the rating as I am!
This type of comedy went away with the Dinosaurs!
The last time I laughed at a movie like this, I fell off my Dinosaur!
You would have thought comedy like this would have evolved into something more original than bumping your head on something or by passing gas! Just complete pointless humor. All they did the whole movie was make horrible grunting sounds, hit their heads a few times, and made jokes about "doo-doo"...which is the most commonly used joke since asking why the chicken crossed the road - and THAT joke was never funny in the first place! I mean C'MON!!!!
And the graphics were bad too. The movie "King Kong vs Godzilla" had horrible, just plain horrible looking monsters, but nothing like this flick! 99% of this movie had humor aimed (at least in my opinion) at younger kids. Fine. But why throw in the scene(s) where they ate Marijuana? Only people who would find this funny WOULD BE KIDS, but why throw in drugs as part of the humor then? Why? It made absolutely no sense!
A friend of mine thought I would FOR SURE find this funny. If that's the case, then I need a new image! He can't understand why I would like "Dracula: Dead and Loving It" but not like this movie. Now I know some people just didn't like Dracula: Dead and Loving It. I know this. But C'mon - at least the cornball humor in that movie had a point. This caveman movie looked like a Three Stooges episode that went bad! And I like the Three Stooges, but even they would be rolling in their grave if they saw this trash!
I gave it a "3" - one for the cast, another for the plot that they TRIED to sell, and the third for the scenery, and that's it! This movie reminded me alot of that Leslie Neilson bomb - 2001: A space travesty. At least Leslie Neilson could say he never made a movie quite like this! MAN!!! They should've had everybody talk English, or at least use a few words so we can follow the story a little better. It's not like they used realism as a strong point of this film anyway. Sheesh.
Deep Blue Sea (1999)
Deep Blue Sea was not deep enough!
Here we go again!
I'll tell you what...This movie - MAN! I've seen people get out of jams before, but this LL Cool J Character!!! This guy was in a SHARK'S MOUTH that has already claimed what, seven lives ALREADY? How he managed to get out of that will forever change my opinion on Hollywood movie writers! I mean C'MON!!!! I'll never look at him again the same way. I used to think he was "one of us", y'know, a regular guy. Not after seeing this garbage!
The plot had so much potential - why did it end like this? And then that Saffron Burrows comes along! With them fat, juicy slut-lips! I don't get what everyone was so crazy about - she was a scientist...a scientist who got ate up! What did you expect? At least they put that in the movie! If LL Cool J couldn't die, at least this character did!
There was much better roles for her to play - she didn't have to break new ground. It's silly. I don't understand logic like that. Even Samuel Jackson bit the big one (or shall we say, the big one bit him)! These sharks look weak compared to JAWS. I bet that JAWS would kick Deep Blue's fins up and down the ocean! This movie had as much logic as The Island of Dr. Marleau had suspense!
It's a shame I had to view this motion picture. Honestly, I think I could have done a better job directing than Renny Harlin did. But you know me - I can't complain! Please do not watch this movie, unless you like Hollywood-ish plots like Men In Black.
Dracula 2000 (2000)
Wes was "Craven" for a hit, but strikes out with this "Horror"ble movie!
Everytime I turn around, some Anne Rice or Bram Stroker has to change the way we view a vampire - why? I'm asking you - WHY? I believe in the old "Salem's Lot" type of Vampire. You know the type...Scared of the sun, afraid of crosses, gives you the chills when around - stuff like that. Nowadays you have Vampires screwing humans, walking around at dusk (even at times in direct sunlight), making them have feelings and are talking like Romeo would do to Juliet - I mean C'MON!!! I don't understand that type of logic. They have them looking 99% human (except for their eyes and teeth - which by the way, in many movies these "New" Vampires are able to change their eye color and make their fangs disapear on command - please).
I know vampires make a great monster. I understand they sell books and make people money. But to change everything and try to make them look cool? They don't mess with Frankenstein - he has always remained the same. You never see Frankenstein all of a sudden get romantic, start looking 99% human or stuff like that! You know why? Doing so would take away from the history or the image the original was intended for. So why do this to Dracula? This movie is the typical of how some "execs" decide to change or bend a few things to make their monster even better.
Nothing seems to stay the same anymore. I guess change sells. That's a shame. Heck, now Batman has had like four different guys play him. Bruce Wayne is Batman and nobody else will be for me. The old vampire lore works just like that for me. Don't try to break new ground. It's silly. I'm ashamed to have spent US Currency to obtain the right to view this garbage. If you like this kind of gay portrayal of a hollywood-ish vampire, then you may just like this. I don't even want to get into what this movie was like or the many flaws - I only have a 1,000 word limit!
Me, Myself & Irene (2000)
Me, Myself, and Irenelly liked it!
This movie shows a lot of character. To me it is an instant classic! I feel the same for the movie as much as I liked viewing the "Wizard of Oz"! This movie has a little of everything: comedy, romance, adventure. This movie doesn't overflow with mushy stuff, nor does it have a complicated plot; yet it has a unique (shall I say "corny"?) sense of humor that you expect out of Jim Carrey that makes the movie such a pleasure to watch. The movie seems to flow so elegantly it's like viewing "poetry in motion". Now I understand some people just don't like these type of movies. These are the types of people who are never satisfied. I have read comments before that say how awful a movie was and they were never entertained or got their money worth! I wish people would just come to a movie with an open mind, sit down, relax, and just take it for what it's worth. I know it is bothersome to most if something happens during a movie that doesn't make sense or brings up some negativity from what is happening in your own life and can prohibit enjoyment of a movie. For example, in the movie, Jim gets dumped by his "soulmate" for another guy - a black midget! To some, that may be bothersome. I say just watch the movie because THAT makes the movie so funny! Also, there is some sexual inuendo (did I spell that right?) said that may offend some people but that's just Jim working his magic! I find that mostly guys like this movie. But I have seen women watch this movie and howl with laughter! I own the DVD of this movie and I love watching it over and over. The scenery is sooo beautiful that it makes me want to visit the place, and some of the things Jim does and says is outright hilarious! I do not want to give much away so I'll put it like this: If you liked Dumb & Dumber, then you should like this movie because it has the same type of humor, just a whole different plot.
Dumb & Dumber (1994)
Dumb & Dumber gets Funny & Funnier!
How can a movie be bad if the more you watch it, the funnier it gets? That basically sums up this masterpiece of comedy! Slightly corny at times, this movie never lets up on the laughs. It's hard for a movie to keep you laughing from start to finish, but this one somehow does it. Too many histarical scenes to mention, but the two that stick out in my mind is when Harry inadvertantly breaks up a fight between Lloyd and a bully they "swindled" earlier in the movie and Harry finds Lloyd sucking his thumb in complete fear; and of course, the "Toilet Scene" with Harry (I'll leave it at that). The plot isn't fancy, but Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels make you ignore the simplicity of the whole thing because they are so funny together! A born classic, this movie is in my Top Five of all time - and I've seen some very funny movies!
Hoosiers is a "Slam Dunk"!
This is the ultimate basketball movie whether you like the sport or not! Gene Hackman performs brilliantly and Dennis Hopper probably plays his best role in this film (though I am not a huge fan of his so I haven't seen many of his movies). This movie has drama, suspense, action, and love all wrapped in one! Having being based on a true story makes it even more appealing. It's refreshing not to see gore, mutilation, sex, and even sponsorship in this movie like so many movies out there right now. You CAN have a great movie without any of that stuff - and this movie is it! A must watch for sure.
This movie "Snatches" your attention!
Of all the alien-type invasion movies out there, this movie is by far the best ever made! This is one of those movies that make you think about for days after watching it the first time! Though confusing at times, the drama and horror of the movie, especially the ending, makes this an A.1. thriller! This was the first movie I saw where the "Bad Guys" come out ahead in the end, unlike all the typical endings where the good guys win. That's the main difference between this and the original 50's version. You can watch this movie and think to yourself "This could really happen". I would have to say this version is slightly better than the 50's one. The 1994 version showed no love to the story - it was horrible! All in all, you must unplug the phone, turn off the lights and watch this bad boy - you'll love it!
Rocky II (1979)
Rocky gets "Redemption" in this movie!
Man oh man what a movie! To this day I still have some excerpts taped from this movie and play it while I work out! Never has a movie tapped into my inner strength like this one does! The fight scene was impeccable, the same actors that made the first one so good came back and DID BETTER than the first - a rarity! I'll tell you what, this movie has done more to my life than any other. I know, it's just a movie, but if it can move someone like it did to me, then it's worthwhile to watch - guaranteed!
Empire of the Ants (1977)
This ant movie should be stepped on!
Whoe! I am a man who isn't quick to point out the bad in something, but this movie is horrid! Horrible, I mean downright horrible special effects and real putrid acting plus the many things that would not possibly ever happen in real life or even imaginary make this one of, if not, the worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life! I stayed up late one night, bored out of my mind, searching the channels and found this movie. Now I like older and even corny movies to a point, but this movie was so bad, that even after the point where the ants attack and figured it would start to get interesting, it was killing me - and I was not even in the movie! I FORCED myself to watch this movie to not only see how much I could stand since I was bored anyway, but to see it entirely so I can be totally correct when I say it is the worst movie to ever see. The part that really, really irked me was when this older couple, knowing darn well that there where killer ants everywhere eating everything in sight, decided while running away from the ants (while the other characters were trying to find a boat and go down the river to escape the ants) they were going to take a different route and go DEEPER in the woods - how idiotic was that! I even said to myself "I wonder how they would escape since the old couple could barely walk much less run even though they always kept within seeing distance of the others". I figured the director would kill them off because it was slowing down an already slow pace to the movie - but not like that! They did not even show the ants eat them! The actors probably died before that scene since they were so old! The sounds of the ants sounded like children screaming and when they showed a close up of the ants grabbing some of the people, it looked more fake than the guy who wore the rubber suit for "Godzilla"! Man, this one was bad! I would only recommend showing this movie to future directors to show what NOT to do in making a movie! Ridiculous!
