The Birds (1963)
The Scariest "Hitchcock" I've Ever Seen (I Haven't Seen Psycho)
Birds fighting mankind seems unlikely, but Hitchcock makes it happen. I am not a horror fan, but 2 hour The Birds made me forget all that and I enjoyed the suspense, thrill, and horror. This is Alfred Hitchcock's best in my opinion. However, the only movies he's directed that I've seen are Rear Window, Dial M for Murder, The Birds, Rope, Marnie, Vertigo, and The Man Who Knew Too Much. This movie brought much fear to me and I wish that they weren't making a sequel because they will ruin the whole thing. This was smart, suspenseful, and gave me the feeling that Hitchcock could do anything. He can, too (including appear in his directed films. In this one, he appears coming out of the pet shop about a minute after the credits). I urge you who love suspense that have not seen The Birds yet to do so. You'll have the thrill of a lifetime.
Vintage claymation is fine with me.
Okay, I've seen this movie three times, twice on TV and once in theaters (the theaters screening was yesterday with 3-D) and I think the movie is best watched in 3-D. This film is by no means bad. In fact, it's very cleaver and fun to see a vintage claymation movie anywhere. More examples are the Wallace & Gromit shorts that played way back then. I think "Nightmare" was the first feature-length claymation movie, right? Anyway, don't answer. It's pretty hard to do that in a comment. Don't look for this question by me in the message boards.
I try not to have my rating for this film at the beginning because I think 3-D is better than 2-D. If it is there, I will try to get rid of it. Anyway, here's my final verdict.
2-D: 8 out of 10 3-D: 9 out of 10
Wow, television shows DID air last night!
Let me just start off by saying that this is one of the funniest episodes of MST3K ever (second to Hobgoblins) and the host segments are the most hilarious. Again, if you can ignore the fact that the film is terrible, you will love any episode of the show. Horrors of Spider Island is in my opinion one of the worst films Mike and the Bots have riffed, and I don't think I could have survived without the madcap jokes. Some of my favorite lines: "(moaning) We've got spirit, yes we do. We've got spirit, how 'bout... ugh." "Where do you want the silverware? Well in the kitchen where it always goes!" ""Wow, television shows DID air last night!" How can you go wrong with those kinds of lines? You can't? I thought so.
Please get Volume 11 to get this episode.
Can somebody say overrated? Pathetic.
I thought to myself before I saw this, "If it's done right, it will get a 9/10." I had that in mind. The movie actually started slow and attempted to build, but even the battles are boring. When it's robot vs. human, I know the outcome of the battle already, and I hated that.. But it seems that the second part of the movie is actually somewhat skillfully made. Shia LeBeouf was great as Sam Witwhicky it also had some great jokes. I swear, it works better as a comedy than an action flick, even though there's more action than humor. Still, everyone else seemed to like it, but my experience wasn't transformed enough. I'll watch a sequel with my family if it comes out. Who knows? It might be worth it.
Humor: 6/10 Action:1/10 Plot: 2/10 Overall Rating: 3/10
Surf's Up (2007)
The big wave has been rode.
I'm gonna start off by saying that this is the best Shia Lebouf film I've seen (I've only seen three, this, The Greatest Game Ever Played, and Transformers.) It also puts a clever twist on animated penguin movies. That's because instead of being a musical (Happy Feet), it's a fake documentary about surfing. You heard that already, didn't you? It also cast Jon Heder as a clueless character again (Napoleon Dynamite) and this time made him happy a whole lot. Very good qualities of the film. My only problem with it was that it's sometimes too predictable. I knew that Geek was Big Z before it was revealed. Still, it was very excellent with good humor.
Plot: 7/10 Humor: 9/10 Characters: 8/10 Overall Rating: 8/10
Happy Feet (2006)
Frostbite and Fantastic Music
Okay, so Happy Feet wasn't a great movie. It was more like what you get when you cross-breed a fantastic soundtrack with an iffy plot. I can't say I hate this, but I would have hated it if there was no soundtrack. However, some of the music is part of the plot, but I was confounded at some of the logic this flick had. Such as Mumble not being able to sing because he was dropped as an egg. Also, in the scene when Mumble was put into a zoo area for humans (REAL humans) to watch him, it looked really weird. Ramone had most of the humor and there wasn't much else to it.
Plot: 3/10 (*1/2 out of ****) Music: 9/10 (***1/2 out of ****) Humor: 6/10 (**1/2 out of ****) Overall appeal: 6/10 (**1/2 out of ****)
The Simpsons Movie (2007)
Worth ten tons of donuts
This movie is everything I expected out of it. It has great gags and a crafty plot. No wounder it wasn't revealed until later. I had a great time seeing this movie and wish I would have seen the part where Lenny tells Homer about the donuts (stupid bladder!) and the credits scenes where Maggie asks for a sequel. Nevertheless, those details were leaked out afterwords but I still wish I would have been able to see them. I'll wait for DVD. (Spare your illegal downloading, YouTube!) Also, great opening. I especially liked the chalkboard gag, "I will not illegally download this movie." All gags were also excellent. Now a shout out to all haters: Haw-Haw!
Humor: 10/10 Plot: 10/10 Characters: 10/10 Overall Rating: 10/10
The Simpsons: 24 Minutes (2007)
Easily the best Simpsons episode of all time.
I'm glad that the Simpsons have great ideas of episodes, and their idea for 24 Minutes was out standing. It lets me look forward to season 19 because it will also be very good. Hilarious jokes are spawned throughout the episode including guest staring by two 24 stars.Also, just because a show is popular doesn't mean that it can't be spoofed. I loved how they did the split screens and the jokes. Also, it offers some suspense to if Bart will do his mission.
It's not necessary for the new episodes of the Simpsons to be bombed. They are perfectly fine. They are getting much better at making episodes and spoofing other shows and movies. The Simpsons remain the best TV series in American history. Can't wait for the movie.
Another outstanding Disney-Pixar masterpiece!
Ratatouille made me hungry when I came out of the theater. It was around 7:00 PM, but I loved this movie. I'm glad this film made it to the Top 250 because movies like this one truly belong there. And the advertisements didn't even repel me. They were good ads and made me want to go to it so bad. This should get nominated for a couple Oscars next year and win one of them. That is not for a long time, but it's something to look forward to. In conclusion, this cooks up a feast you'll never forget. I hope you don't want to forget it at all. This is my new favorite movie, and that probably won't change until the film Wall-E comes out. Pixar is the greatest film company ever!
Edit: Now my favorite movie is The Simpsons Movie.
The Simpsons (1989)
Get your Simpsons on, lovers!
The Simpsons may have had the same 2-D animation over 18 seasons and 400 episodes, and it's still the best TV show ever! If the Simpsons don't end when I die, it would be a shame because I will no longer be able to watch the longest running TV series in history. The Simpsons get into hilarious adventures that never disappoint. Who Shot Mr. Burns? was one of the best. Great thing to watch on Sunday nights. I admit I haven't seen all of the episodes, but the ones I have seen were hands down hilarious. I love it when I can find a descent clip of The Simpsons on YouTube, because I can sort of catch up. The Simpsons Movie is going to be the biggest Summer blockbuster this decade! Am I right? Like probably a bunch of fans, my favorite character is Homer. He is so funny and he has done so many jobs. Over 100, including the ones he has had at the Nuclear Power Plant. Bottom Line: Get your Simpsons on!!!!!
