Mean Girls (2004)
A delicious black comedy for the Younger Crowd, 5 May 2004

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Meet Cady(pronounced like Cathy), played by the gorgeous Lindsay Lohan, a girl who has lived in Africa and has been home schooled her entire life. But now it's time to say goodbye to all that and say hello to high school. Cady is about to experience how rude and manipulating girls can be and that you can't really trust anybody but yourself. She befriends the most popular group in school that are known as "The Plastics"(all pretty attractive girls), lead by Regina(Rachel McAdams) the meanest one of them all. Soon, Cady find out Regina's evil and sneaky ways, but she isn't about to let Regina walk all over her. She changes the rules, turning everybody against Regina and knocking her off of her mighty throne, not realizing she has become a mean girl herself.

Mean Girls might just be not what you expect at all, it is just plain hilarious, crude and a real treat for anyone willing to give it a chance. If you loved movies such as Jawbreaker, then you will definitely enjoy this one. The cast is wonderful and addictive, the new "teen queen" Lindsay Lohan is absolutely charming, while newcomers Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried and Jonathan Bennett are also great themselves. Finally a highly enjoyable teen comedy that doesn't revolve around a fake bubblegum story and unrealistic circumstances.

I would give Mean Girls 8/10

Uma kicks Ass once again with more Feeling(Contains Spoilers), 30 April 2004

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

In this much anticipated sequel to the fantastic "Kill Bill Vol.1",

Vol.2 takes us right where it left us before. Uma is not yet finished, but her revenge is close, so near she can almost smell victory. In this volume, the story takes us much more into depth with the characters, leaving us with many long, silent and emotional moments. Don't be mistaken and call these moments boring, nothing in Kill Bill is boring, every second of it is more interesting and fascinating then the previous one. But this is not all there is to Vol.2, the whole movie is just filled with so much witty humor that you can't help but chuckle to yourself. The most wonderful scenes for me were: 1.Uma being buried alive(but of course finding her way out eventually) 2.The anticipated cat-fight(if you want to call it that) between Uma and Elle Driver, and last but not least, the first acquaintance Uma makes with her daughter, that scene brought tears to my eyes. The only disappointing part for me was Bill's simple and quick death, but that is just because I was expecting more.

True Kill Bill fans will not be disappointed, for Tarantino is a genius and Uma Thurman is a Goddess in so many ways, I would give Kill Bill: Vol.2 9/10

How do you want Me?, 22 April 2004

This movie revolves around a young man named Matthew Kidman(Emilie Hirsch) who is about to graduate but has absolutely nothing to write in his yearbook and nothing interesting to remember his school year by. Until, Danielle(Elisha Cuthbert), moves in next door and in Matthew's eyes and I'm sure to most of us in the audience, she is an angel sent from above. Danielle and Matthew become friends and start to develop into something more until Matthew finds out that Danielle is actually a porn star and that's when trouble starts brewing, misleading Matthew and his friends into many dangerous adventures.

I enjoyed half of this movie and for the other half, I couldn't wait for it to finally finish. It's a nice little, interesting and sexy story but there are just too many messy and useless moments that at the end, you forget what the movie was really all about and wonder what was ever really the point, since the movie seems to drag on forever with no real meaning. The cast tries hard to make it work but the dialogue doesn't seem to agree with them. It's a very forgettable movie but still entertaining overall with some funny situations and a great soundtrack. I would give The Girl Next Door 5/10

Joel+Clementine, 26 March 2004

Joel(Jim Carrey) is a confused and lonely man who falls in love with every single woman that looks at him. But things change when Joel meets Clementine(Kate Winslet), her witty charm and colorful personality brings out the best in Joel. The two of them spend some wonderful moments together but all good things must eventually come to an end. After a big fight, Joel finds out that now Clementine has no idea who he is because she has had all her memories erased of him. Joel decides that he wants to get his memories erased of her also but during the procedure, he realizes what a wonderful and magnificent love he had with Clementine and that he would like to keep those moments forever not only in his mind, but in his heart as well.

This movie was like sucking on a jawbreaker, sweet, hard and once you get used to the flavor, you never want to let go. Everything about it was just perfect, it's charming, sad, funny and most importantly, real and very special. The cast was wonderful, the beautiful Kate Winslet especially blew me away. Elijah Wood, Mark Ruffalo and Kirsten Dunst were also great and very entertaining in their roles. This movie is truly great and those of us who love a little strangeness in our lives, will adore it. I would give Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind 9/10.

And the Dead still Keep on Running, 20 March 2004

Most of us love our Zombie movies and we've all had our share of them over the last few decades. This newest one, features a couple of survivors that find themselves hiding in the local city mall from flesh-eating zombies who are not about to go anywhere anytime soon. Dawn of the Dead is exciting, creepy and most of all, entertaining. Like every horror movie, it has it's share of humor and laughter and that's what keeps the movie going. The cast features a couple of not so well known actors and the performances are decent by many and well, not so decent by a few. The movie has a few flaws but just enjoy it for what it is, plain bloody fun. Plus the Score is awesome. I would give Dawn of the Dead 7/10

The Passion broke my Heart, 1 March 2004

I have been hearing so much about The Passion of Christ and have been wanting to see it for so long, and finally last week I did. Let me just say that no other movie has left me more speechless, taken my breath away and left such a pain in my heart then this one. This movie was absolutely beautiful, brutal, mesmerizing and the experience I had while watching it will never be forgotten. I am not a religious person but I have never cried so much during a movie, it was like watching a beloved friend die. James Caviezel was ravishing in his role as Jesus Christ and the whole cast was purely breathtaking. The Soundtrack was also haunting and fantastic. Thank you Mel Gibson, for making such a masterpiece, you have shown and given me so much. Words can't describe how much this movie has affected me. I would give The Passion of the Christ 10/10.

Brigitte snaps but does she snap hard Enough?, 31 January 2004

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

In the sequel to the cult horror hit "Ginger Snaps", Brigitte(Emily Perkins) finds herself transforming into the same monster that killed her sister. She has been injecting herself with too much monkshood, she o.d's, is mistaken for a junkie and wins herself a trip to the "Happier Times" rehab center. There Brigitte meets a young girl named Ghost(Tatiana Maslany)who is a very strange and curious kid and might help Brigitte with the cure. The two of them become very close, almost like sisters even, but now Brigitte has a bigger problem, another werewolf has been stalking her and now he wants to mate. I am probably the biggest fan of Ginger Snaps and I was highly anticipating the sequel. As soon as I saw the opening credits, I knew that I was in for a treat. Emily Perkins was simply amazing, the gore was beautiful and the dark humor and atmosphere were similar to the first one. The makeup was better where as the first Ginger Snaps was more emotional. Of course it wasn't as good as the first one but what sequel ever really is? Like I said, the acting and makeup was awesome and the soundtrack was great too. I also really enjoyed the short but sweet appearances by my beloved Katharine Isabelle as Ginger. The ending was very disappointing though, it kind of ruined the whole movie for me. But if I forget the last 10 minutes, this movie was excellent and almost gave me as much pleasure as the first one. I would give Ginger Snaps II:Unleashed 8/10.

Absolutely Ridiculous, 25 January 2004

Meet Evan(Ashton Kutcher) a young disturbed man suffering from blackouts and memory loss from his troubled past. The only thing that can help him is his journal, which can make him travel back in time and save the love of his life Kayleigh(Amy Smart) from becoming an unhappy suicidal crack whore. But of course, whenever Evan travels back in time, he manages to screw up the future even more so this Butterfly Effect has really not much effect at all. Now, maybe this movie wouldn't have been half as bad if the cast was different because the acting was just terrible. Starting from Logan Lerman who portrays the younger version of Evan and gives a painfully bad performance back to Ashton Kutcher who mumbles throughout the whole movie and his serious facial expressions were priceless. The only person who gave a great performance was Amy Smart. This movie had the whole audience roaring with laughter and half of them walking out. Note to Ashton: Stick to Comedy and don't mess with the future. I would give The Butterfly Effect 4/10.

A Story that never Grows Old, 3 January 2004

Wendy Darling(Rachel Hurd-Wood) is a young girl who loves telling stories and fairytales to her two younger brothers. She doesn't really understand her parents, especially her strict father, Wendy would rather stay a child forever then grow up to be an adult. But when Peter Pan(Jeremy Sumpter), the boy who never grows up, shows up at Wendy's window one night to take her and her brothers to Never Never land with him, Wendy is about to experience an adventure and fairytale of her own. To meeting the lost boys and encountering the dangerous yet beautiful mermaids and to meeting Peter's biggest fiend: Captain Hook(Jason Isaacs), who wants to take revenge on Peter Pan and make sure that he'll never return to Never Never land again. I thought this was a wonderful adaption of the original Peter Pan and a charming and magical movie. The two main characters are very beautiful and talented children and the chemistry between them was very tense and somewhat sexual, if I may say. The story was somewhat flawed and forgettable, filled with too many cheesy moments and lines but it was a family movie so I guess it was alright. It was still very enjoyable, I would give Peter Pan 7/10.

Big Fish (2003)
Not Burton's best Work but still a Wonderful Movie, 28 December 2003

The movie starts of with Edward Bloom(Albert Finney), telling one of his famous yet annoying stories to his son Will(Billy Crudap), who is now a grown married man and about to have a family of his own. Will can't stand his father's stories, I mean, they are just fairytales, none of the stories that his dad has been telling him his whole life really happened, right? Will and his father stop communicating for a few years but when Edward starts growing older and weaker and closer to his dying day, Will and his pregnant wife Josephine(Marion Cotillard) come to visit and the story of Edward Bloom is told. The story is mostly narrated by Will without knowing if his father's stories are true or if they are all just a big lie and part of the story is narrated by Edward himself. The tale starts of with a young Edward Bloom(Ewan McGregor) and his many adventures starting from when he was a little boy and meeting the old witch(Helena Bonham Carter) that lives by the swamp with the glass eye, to meeting Karl the Giant(Matthew McGrory) and leaving town with him, to joining the circus and finally finding the love of his life, his wife Sandra(Alison Lohman). While Edward's life might often sound unbelievable, Will believes there might be some truth to it and he is bound to really find out the story of his father's life and love him for what he was and always will be: A big adventurous fish with an imagination bigger then life itself. I am a big fan of Tim Burton and while this may not be his best work, it's certainly a wonderful movie. All the characters are beautiful and unique in their own way and the movie itself is just simply magical and filled with beautiful moments. I would give Big Fish 8/10.
