Stewie Kills Louis is the 100th episode of "Family Guy" and overall
it's pretty good. It had its classic Family Guy moments, and a
surprising twist ending. A few days before it aired, the creator of
"Family Guy" (Seth MacFarlane) had announced that in the 100th episode
of this popular show there would be a death. The title of this episode
tells the whole story.
In "Stewie kills Lois", Peter and Lois go on a cruise to celebrate Lois's recent birthday. Back in Rhode Island, Stewie is angry that Lois didn't take him with her on the cruise, and vows to kill Lois as soon as she comes back. Brian simply laughs at him and reminds him of all the other times in the past he said exactly the same thing, and that he will never kill Lois. Stewie is furious and is determined to prove Brian wrong, which sets out the plot for the rest of the episode.
This was a highly entertaining "Family Guy" episode. It was filled with humor and contained a surprising twist ending which sets the scene for the next episode. It's definitely worth viewing, a must-see for all die hard Family Guy fans.
When I first sat down to watch "Saw IV", I was not expecting much as it
seemed it would be very difficult to make a good sequel with Jigsaw
dead. I am not a huge fan of the "Saw" movies, but I was very impressed
with Saw IV considering it lacked the presence of Jigsaw.
The film opens up with an autopsy of Jigsaw/John, where an audio cassette is discovered in his stomach, and that sets out the whole plot for the movie. Throughout the film we learn a little more about Jigsaw's history, and why he did what he did. Of course Saw IV also includes some creative, painful and very gory traps which lead to a few slow and painful deaths, which will make even the strongest moviegoers cringe.
Saw IV is nothing like it's prequel, Saw III. It doesn't have a lot of random and somewhat pointless violence like Saw III, it makes you think and had a good twist which Saw III also lacked. If you go to watch Saw IV expecting an average, overly violent, torture porn horror film, I guarantee you will hate this movie. Much like the first "Saw" film, you will be pondering over the final twist for hours.
Overall I thought Saw IV was a decent film, it was entertaining and had a pretty solid script which keeps the audience interested, and the usual bloody "Saw" special effects. However, I thought that it did lack in suspense towards the very end and was a little too far-fetched in some scenes.
6/10 - Entertaining, hardcore "Saw" fans should be pleased.
Wow...words cannot describe how disappointingly bad this movie is. I
only watched it because it stars my favorite actress of all time, Cate
Blanchett. But even her incredible acting talent couldn't save the poor
plot, and the terrible supporting acting. Clive Owen sounded like he
was reading everything off a script for the first time, and the rest of
the cast were boring and uninteresting. Not only did the movie fail at
being even slightly entertaining, it was very historically inaccurate
as well. Yes, I know that it's "just a movie", but it's no excuse for
such a inaccurate script. The movie is two hours long, but it felt oh
so much longer. I found myself looking at my watch before the 30 minute
mark, hoping it would get better. Alas, it didn't.
Overall the movie was simply terrible in my opinion, it dragged and all the actors (excluding the always wonderful Cate Blanchett) gave lackluster performances. I strongly suggest you do not see this movie, it is simply a waste of time and money.
I loved the first "Pirates of the Carribbean" film, it will always be
one of my favorite movies of all time, and it's sequel did not
disappoint. But "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End", is the
biggest let down I have ever seen. I kept waiting for "POTC: At Worlds
End" to get better, but after the first hour went by I realized this
wasn't going to happen and began to wait for it to end, but it seemed
that also wasn't going to happen any time soon either as I looked at my
watch more and more. The humour and heart put into the first two films
is gone, replaced by jokes that are cheap and forced. The only time I
genuinely laughed was when Keith Richards made his cameo appearance,
but it was 130 minutes too late and then he had left the screen almost
as soon as he entered it, as the next hour of extreme boredom began.
Orlando Bloom seemed as bored as I was, and I don't blame him as his
lines were beyond cringe worthy. Johnny Depp's performance as Jack
Sparrow was just a load of recycled crap which came off as annoying,
not funny. Even though Johnny, to give him credit, tried to spice it up
a little he failed. The movie also seemed to rely completely on CGI
during some scenes in a attempt to distract the audience from the awful
plot, plus the dialogue was terrible and very confusing, it seemed they
were just making it up as they went along, cramming the movie with plot
twists and characters becoming traitors for no apparent reason. A lot
of the time I didn't even understand what the characters were saying,
but I really didn't care.
Overall this was a huge disappointment, and I strongly recommend you don't bother wasting three hours of your life watching this. It's a huge shame, as I once considered myself a "Pirates of the Carribbean" fan. This just goes to show three times is not the charm, 2/10
Spider - Man 3 has many strong points, which include: Good acting,
Interesting plot, Incredible CGI, and a hilarious cameo by Bruce
Campbell (Or Ash, from the Evil Dead Series)
The plot is about Peter Parker (Spider - Man) who is living the good life. He's happy with all his Spider - Man fans, he's back to getting the highest grades in his class and he's planning to propose to Mary Jane. But then a strange black entity from another world crashes on earth in the form of a meteor. It bonds with Peter Parker and causes him to become arrogant and unpleasant, as he battles new villains (Including the Sandman, the best villain of the series in my opinion) and begins to seek revenge.
As I stated before the acting is very good when compared to the prequels, every cast member gives a credible performance. The CGI is amazing, all though there are a few times when it becomes just a little too obvious. A few problems with the film is that it begins to drag towards the end, as it is 140 minutes long and 15 minutes longer than its prequels. The love story between Mary Jane and Peter went a little too deep in my opinion, and some of it seemed unnecessary. There are some incredibly corny lines, but what would you expect from this kind of film? Also, the strange black goo-like substance that attach's itself to Peter and makes him "evil" seemed a little forced. He wouldn't notice or even hear a meteor crashing down thirty meters away from him? And the fact it went after him out of all the millions of people living in New York seemed just a little too coincidental.
Although in the end these problems are only small, as the positives heavily out weigh the negatives, as Spider - Man 3 is a great popcorn movie to lose yourself in for a few hours on a Friday/Saturday night. I feel that it does not deserve all the negative reviews. 8/10 - A must see for all Spidey fans, this film does not disappoint.
