The Village (2004)
really weird, but i liked it
dude...i was so confused when i came out of the theaters. this movie makes you think. it's really weird at times, but m. night is a really great writer and director. he knows how to control your emotions, surprise you, and baffle you in the oddest ways.
the village was so cool. the plot turned and twisted throughout the film. the acting and cinematography were brilliant. i especially liked adrien brody as noah. he played his part well. the scenery and music were very pretty.
kudos to m. night on his newest thriller. four stars, two thumbs up, and i can't wait to see another one of his films.
Spider-Man 2 (2004)
way better than the first
The first "Spider-man" was kind of slow and boring. I was hoping "Spider-man 2" wouldn't be. And it wasn't. The action was much better, the dialogue wasn't as cheesy, the plot and villian were better, and I liked the ending better. Go see this except a non-stop, edge-of-your-seat adventure, filled with action, drama, romance, sacrifice, destiny, choice, and all that good stuff. Plus, it was extremely clean for a PG-13: brief mild language, one or two kisses, and stylized action/violence. So bring the kids--you won't be disappointed.
Spiderman 2: 9.5/10 stars
cool idea, but bad movie
I saw a commercial about 10.5 and i thought it looked pretty cool. we were studying earthquakes in science class at the time so i wanted to check it out. i forgot about it until that night i saw that it was on so i watched it. the first part was okay, but the cinematography was weak. what can you expect? it had no money to work with. i still wanted to see the second part. the way it ended was stupid. (MAJOR SPOILERS) the whole thing with so. california becoming an island was majorly retarded and not believable. if this movie/mini had more money to work with, it would've kicked butt. too bad.
we just studied volcanoes in science and i looked up a few movies about volcanoes. i thought this one looked especially cool. so when it was on TV i was like "snap! i should watch it". and man, was it awesome! the lava looked real. the acting was good (tommy lee jones especially) and made the disaster believable. (MINOR SPOILERS) i liked how it turned out good in the end.
the people in movie who died sacrificed their lives for the safety of others. people worked together dispite their differences. i liked that a lot.
Walking Tall (2004)
Not really sure what to say
I didn't really anticipate watching Walking Tall. I guess the trailer looked cool with the 2X4 smashing and stuff. All I knew about the plot was some guy is away from home for a large amount of time and comes back to see the town has gone down the drain. So he goes around and beats people/casinos up to fix it. Sounds great!
Actually, the Rock (Chris Vaughn) is not that bad of an actor. He's better than Schwarzenneger will ever be. Johnny Knoxville (Ray) gave the movie some comic relief and was my favorite character in the movie. The casino guy looked like a nazi or something.
The language wasn't too bad. WT had it's share of swearing (including a PG-13 token f-word) but it wasn't constant swearing. There was a few scenes with casino dancers and one of those dancers had a intimate moment with Chris Vaughn. The violence includes a lot of shooting, 2x4 smashing, and stabbings in the chest. Little kids might get freaked out.
3 stars out of 4
Dawn of the Dead (1978)
good, bloody, hilarious
Many times in this movie I found myself laughing hysterically. It's really funny even though it's about flesh-eating zombies. The zombies are so funny when they just walk around aimlessly in the mall. They say the funniest things, and sometimes they're funny when they're trying to be serious!
Even though it is funny, it is a total bloodbath. Blood and guts fly almost every scene. The scenes where the zombies eat people's flesh are almost too gross to watch. The weak of stomach will cringe. Don't eat when you watch DotD!
Over-all I give it a 8/10. My rating- R for gore, violence, language, and brief nudity
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
not bad, now that i got to see it
My mom and dad bought NotLD way back then and ever since then I've always been yearning to see it. They wouldn't let me at first. Said it was too scary and gross. After a while they didn't much care if I saw it, so one when I was home alone, I put it in the VCR (bad idea). After the first ten minutes, I got so scared I turned it off and ran screaming out of the room.
Since then I've matured and one day I was like "hey mom can i watch night of the living dead." she's like "ok, but do you want me to watch it with you?" i was like "thank goodness she asked me that." so we started watching it and it wasn't too bad really. There are only one or two startling moments, quite a few gory moments, and the end creeped me out really bad (!!!!!!HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE SPOILERS!!!!!!!) when they mistook Ben for a zombie and shot him and then burned him in that field. Also, the goriest and also really creepy part (MORE BIG SPOILERS!!!!!!!) is when the girl gets zombified and eats her mom and dad.
But overall the movie was good. 8/10.
Don't Look Under the Bed (1999)
not bad actually
Eric Ty Hodges is pretty cool so I thought I'd watch it to see how he was. And it wasn't half bad. The jokes are funny and it's kind of spooky at times. Not like "having-nightmares-for-a-month" scary, but fun-scary. The whole boogey-man thing was a stretch, but the "boogey-goo" thing was hilarious. In the end, (SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!) when they find out that the boogey-man was really a fairy that the girl didn't believe in anymore, the fairy/boogeyman was pretty dang hot. Too bad we didn't get to see more of her. That was probably the best part of the movie. But if you ever see this showing on Disney Channel, it's actually worth watching. So watch it. You'll have fun.
How to Make a Monster (2001)
Wow! How bad was that? Really bad! I mean, all it was, was a bloody, swearing crap-fest where some how in the end the moral is "You have to turn into a cold sarcastic jerk to succeed!" Yay! What kind of crap is that? I watched this movie because I wanted to see a good slash-em-up horror film but what I got was a poorly-made piece of crap. The "monster" was cheesy and the violence was dull. There was no scary moments at all. And I think the characters' favorite words were "s***" and "f***". This is one of those "late-night-HBO-movies that they show because there's nothing else" kind of movies. Please, don't waste your time watching this crap-shoot. I did. And I'm sorry I wasted an hour and a half of my life. 0/10.
The Long and Short of It (2003)
Good job, Sean!
I heard that Sean was making a short film for the Two Towers DVD, and I was excited to see how it would turn out. And it was really good! It was cool that he used the three people of varying heights to accomplish the goal, and that he used Peter Jackson as the bus driver. That's awesome! The music on it was cool. And I also thought the fact that they didn't talk was cool too. Watch the making of "The Long and Short of It" on the DVD, too. It is really funny! I hope Sean makes some more short films, or maybe he'll be a director someday. Anyway, congratulations on your first film, Sean. Good luck in the future.
