My favorite of the 3 movies
I have to say that without a doubt, this movie is my personal favorite of the 3 movies in the trilogy. Why? I love the tension and overall sense of gloom the actors, and more noteably, the score portray for us. Rohan seems like it would normally be a beautiful, bright, happy place, but a dark shadow has fallen over it. Very well done in this sense. Sometimes, it is just dreadfully quiet as the actors deliver their lines with just a hint of music in the background. When Eomer delivers the line...."Do not trust to hope, it has forsaken these lands." it still gives me goose bumps. Same with Theoden as he conveys his sense of being alone in this fight at Helm's Deep to Aragorn..."Yes, my Lord Aragorn, we ARE alone." Awesome....
Some other awesome things I loved about this movie:
-Gimli is hilarious...him and Legolas also interact well -The Uruks are just some bad mothers...I love them and hate them -The Battle of Helm's Deep is so tense and nervy...not to mention great action -Boromir flashback by Faramir was incredible, and necessary -Gollum......enough said -PO-TA-TOES!!! I love that scene...still cracks me up. -The Nazgul on the fell beasts are scary! -The dead marshes totally creep me out...well done -The Ents attacking Isengard was one of the coolest things to watch
-Even though totally fabricated...I love the warg scene -Every scene in Rohan was great, I can't say enough about the score and awesome actng by Theoden, Eomer, Aragorn, and Gandalf -LOVE the cliff hanger ending and the closing credits music -The EE adds SO MUCH to this movie...every extra scene works for me -this movie has GREAT comic relief (Eowyn's stew comes to mind, and everything out of Gimli's mouth)
I think I'll watch it again tonight
What made me laugh more and more is that little pis$ed off dragon. It made the movie as far as I'm concerned. The movie took a while to get going, but it grew on me......but I'm easily entertained. In the realm of kids movies, I'd probably give it a 6/10. Definitely enjoyable.
Gods and Generals (2003)
Who wrote this script? What a P.O.S. I felt like I was sitting through one long boring poetry reading. I'm getting p***ed thinking about it. Unless you want cheesy dialogue with Soap Opera like pauses for "effect".....then avoid this stinker. Worse than Gettysburg (I didn't think that was possible).
Sweet Home Alabama (2002)
I liked the dog
I'm a sucker for animal humor and (Bryant?) reminds me of my dog. Hilarious. Also, that aside, I had a hunch this would just be a harmless, fun movie, and it was. a solid 6/10 in my book. Reese's mother irritates at first but grows on you later. Anyone with a southern, conservative mother (like myself) can relate.
Boys and Girls (2000)
Worth viewing for the final scene...
...during the credits. Biggs and the Victoria's Secret models have a "rip-roaring" time. I was howling, that was so funny. I know, I know, grow up, right. Nah. Otherwise, this movie was pretty average, with spot funny parts. I give it a 5/10, but definitely watch the credits.
Kung Pow: Enter the Fist (2002)
Laughed so hard I lost my voice
Man, I haven't laughed this hard in a LONG TIME! Very cool movie. A fellow reprobate called me at work and started quoting the movie, and since I have no impulse control, laughed hysterically again. I'm still crying. Maybe it's the allergy medication? No, it was funny.
"Tiger....Tiger...Birdy...Bird.....I AM A POWERFUL MAGICIAN!! Your clothes are red."
"And who DO you rule? The large, dark-nipple people?"
Varsity Blues (1999)
Why do all football movies have to end on the impossible dream of a trick play, against all odds, no time left, no time outs, etc? (SIGH!!)) Oh well, with that said, I actually enjoyed the hell out of this movie. If your hungry you can make a cheese sandwich in some parts, but the over the top drama are what high schoolers are about. Just watch a little bit of reality tv to see that. Football coaches DO think they are gods (for some reason) so I didn't think Kilmer's character was out of line. Next football movie, though, I want the DEFENSE to make a stand!!!! That is all
Makes you keep watching
Well, as far as the FDNY goes---------------these guys are bad asses. What struck me was how calm they all stayed. After one disaster after another, they always seemed to have composure of themselves and kept moving towards their goals of helping people and each other. What a bleak scene? I didn't realize how "ghost town" it turned out to be, so silent! What a work environment. Thank God they all made it out alive. Incredible footage.
Weird Science (1985)
The first movie I ever owned.
I wasn't allowed to see it in the theatre when it came out, so I had to wait until I could rent it. Well, actually my friend rented it and I saw it at his house. I've been hooked ever since. Way back when I first began my movie collection, I made it a point to buy this and Caddyshack first. True, it doesn't make me belly laugh like it used to, but hey, I'm not 12 years old anymore either! I still get a very enjoyable viewing out of it (especially from Chet), and I can't help but be swept back in time when the music kicks in during the opening credits. To me, this movie is a blast and will always be one of my favorites. Peace.
Van Wilder (2002)
van wilder was awesome
I am proud to say, that the older I get, the MORE I seem to enjoy these low-brow comedies of teen/college antics. No, my sense of humor does not reflect my education level, nor does my movie collection speak very highly of me as an intellectual--------------but who cares what my family thinks? This one was a HUGE laugh! Just a light hearted, silly movie. My favorite genre............
