How to Deal (2003)
Just one straight guy's opinion...
Well I have female friends so I found myself in this flick tonight. Now I like Mandy Moore and thought she was good in A Walk to Remember so I wasn't too upset. And all in all the movie wasn't horrible. Of course it wasn't great but it was watchable and the dozens of pre-pubescent girls in the theater seemed to be enjoying themselves. Moore was good, as were most of the supporting cast (I liked Allison Janney and Peter Galligher but theyre both fairly dependable) however there were a few things I couldn't stand (SPOILERS):
1) The Grandmother. A horrible one-joke character. Bad weed jokes don't belong here. hahahahaha the old ladies high, thats just as funny as the old lady who raps or the old lady whos horny who are in every other teen movie ever.
2) In the scene where Scarlet and Hallie first discover Scarlet's pregnant they played some silly happy comedy music on the soundtrack. It's like "hey, the teenage girls taking a pregnancy test..and its positive! How WHACKY!"
3) OK, Scarlet's having a baby...NOW. Lets get her to the hospital...but first lets pick Hallie up at the wedding because she's the lead, right? WRONG! Get the girl to the f***ing hospital now, idiot!
4) Finally, and worst of all. Trent Ford and his horrible character of Macon. His character was a complete asshole at times so it would take a real good actor to make us forgive him. Unfortunately we have Mr. Ford. I'll now quote from another post I've made on this subject: He brought an already fairly mediocre movie straight to hell with his I'm-So-hip clothes, I'm-so-alternative hair, I'm-constantly-in-deep-though arched eyebrows, his I'm-so-goofy face, and his I-must-have-amazing-connections-to-have-gotten-this-role line delivery. It's not that I hate all "heartthrobs", I had nothing against Shane West in a Walk to Remember. It's just that Mr. Ford needs a hair cut and some acting lessons.
This movie would have been a lot better without these huge problems that took me right out of it. Then again, I'm not really the target audience, am I?
I don't think I have laughed so hard for years
The first time I saw this show was in a hotel room. The hotel got BBCAmerica which I didn't so I flipped it on. I saw 2 episodes (Sex, Death, and Nudity and Inferno) and laughed harder than I ever thought possible. When I returned home I was so upset that I couldnt watch the show that I ordered the entire first series on tape...even though it didnt play on American VCRs. SO I had to spend MORE cash and have it converted. After all that I finally watched the other 4 episodes and it was all worth it...even though about a week later I started getting BBCAmerica and a month later the American dvd came out.
This show is perhaps the funniest shows on television (although Curb Your Enthusiasm comes close) and besides its premise is altogether nothing like Friends...its funny! I really hope the American version will be like this and not just another Friends.
In summary, great show!!!!!!
Halloween: Resurrection (2002)
Great until the ending...
I, for one, am a huge Halloween fan. I've seen every movie (including dreadful number 3) and I was really waiting for this one. For the most part it lived up to my expectations. It was scary, it was funny, and the audience was all loving it (damn some of them scream loud!) but then in the end it just wait straight to hell and there is one obvious reason...Busta Rhymes. The guy was fine in the beginning but soon he turned into the movie's hero saving the heroine from certain death and, believe me, Donald Pleasence he ain't. At one point he fights Michael off by (I'm not kidding) karate kicking him. YOU DON'T KARATE KICK MICHAEL FREAKING MYERS! Plus he just wouldn't die. You know the reshooting had something to do with that... Since when are rappers Michael Myers's favorite victims. First LL Cool J and now Busta Rhymes. But the difference between LL Cool J and Busta was that LL Cool J was a much better actor. So in summation, see Halloween Resurrection but leave right after the climax. That way you at least won't have to see Busta's amazingly cheesey change-of-heart monologue. He's funny, but he's not Halloween.
