The Nutcracker (1993)
The Nutcracker silent treatment
I first watched this when I was 15. I enjoyed most of it since then. What I used to say when I get scared was to list off the delights the Sugar Plum Fairy brought in. Thanks to Kevin (Kline) I now know it's "The little Polichinelles". You see, most people would pop this into their players to use as background noise if they've seen it before like I would every year during the holiday season. At the situation where Marie was running back and forth to get the nutcracker she had, I would often suggest "Either leave the nutcracker or don't." My sister watched this and she preferred Barbie in the Nutcracker more. Personally, I wouldn't wear a crown from a dead rat. The snowflake sequence was the best I've ever seen. I recalled seeing the play when I was in Elementary School at a local high school. (Personally, I think College plays are more experienced than High school plays.) I pretended to be Kevin the narrator for a second when he said "A soldier with a strong jaw." while Drosselmeier revealed the nutcracker and I said "And a long beard." Even though it's 1 hour and 33 minutes, it feels like it's been at least 1 hour and 10 minutes or longer. I just bought my DVD on Ebay in a Like New condition. Double DVDs are risky as I had to not place fingers on either side. It was amazingly good. Kudos
The Master of Disguise (2002)
The art of disguise is called acting
I first saw this on the big screen during the summer of 2002-2003 and I enjoyed it. An old friend of mine and I find it funny when it goes "I'm going to be a master of disguise. (3x)" "Enough!" (Slaps). The purpose of the Disguiseys being masters of disguise is that they're acting. Anytime I see a person on screen or on TV acting, they became another person. Heck, they're even playing dress up. The nostalgia critic pointed out that when Pistachio was dressed up as an Indian prince, he said that he (Pistachio) looked like the Indian Steve Carell which I find it hilarious. I can tell that the some of the disguises I see were portrayed by real people. For examples like when Grandpa Disguisey was the maid. The crew hired the lady to play the maid disguise and had to mouth Harold (Gould)'s lines. In scenes where Fabrizzio takes off his disguises, that's visual effects. I had to think of Wild Wild West (1999) for one second soon afterwords because of the scenes where Jim and Artemus Gordon use that to find kidnapped scientists. My mom cannot stand Dana Carvey. I can't even understand the little Italian in this flick. (I speak Italian and I think I'd keep listening.) I recently started job training at IHOP and a server was carrying 3 plates and I sarcastically said "Hey, moron, use a tray next time. Those are too many plates." Talking baby. LOL 😆. It went by pretty fast with the timing of 80 min. I always watch the end credits to see more of what happened after Pistachio became the master of disguise and when he encountered a tiny man who is controlling the dummy.
The worst TV show any kid or parent had ever watched
I used to watch Caillou all the time when I was in my early teens. Then while I was watching some episodes on TV, my mom pointed out his constant whining. Everywhere he goes whether he's at home or at the park, he would act very immature. Then I watched more episodes because of watching Caillou gets grounded videos to see how he would react to one another. This was what got me to act immature and behave like a toddler even though I'm a 20-year-old woman. Then to ensure it won't happen again, I stopped watching Caillou. Before I stopped looking, I found an episode where he's in the bathroom throwing a toy car and seconds later kicking and screaming. It's the circus episode. "No, it's today! (cries) I got all dressed!" He's defiant in some ways like when he wants to play with toys rather than take a bath. His friends and other people seemed to behave well but Caillou, not so much. Of course his parents teach him lessons sometimes. I wouldn't let my nieces and nephews (because I planned not to have kids) watch this. Veggietales, Peppa Pig, Arthur, & Martha Speaks are much better because the parents are controlled to their kids. Nowadays, whenever I see the show on either Arthur or Martha Speaks DVDs, I would close my eyes and ears.
The Last of Robin Hood (2013)
Something worth seeing
I pre-ordered this 3 months before its release. It's sad at first but I enjoyed it a lot. Kevin deserves a gold medal for the best Errol Flynn. It made me think of how I became a fan of Kline at a much younger age of 13 when most fans are around my parents age. Beverly is a troubled girl and Florence was just over protective. Her husband Herb was harsh. I don't even think it's right to lie about your age and have a 15 year old planning to marry a 50- year-old. In a scene where Errol was sick in Cuba and told Beverly he's dying, I cried at first because I don't want Kevin to leave the earth side yet. So I sad " Please stay with us. I'm scared." I even kept begging that he wouldn't be in an erotic movie. I knew that Errol was going to die in this because that's what the movie is about. Kevin was never miscast as Douglas Fairbanks in Chaplin. Maybe people say that he doesn't look like it Errol Flynn. Every time I get into water of any kind weather if I'm drinking water or a fine going swimming, I kept hearing Errol saying " Water is for swimming and I told you that." I think water is important to us because that's what our bodies are made out of. I have done a ton of research on the movie " The roots of heaven" and Beverly was never in this. Thanks to a scene where a fan was getting an autograph from Flynn, I think I should try to rent or buy The Sea Hawk. Thumbs up on everything.
Life as a House (2001)
Quite a hard movie at first
When I first watched it, I was 14. I was obsessed with Kevin (Kline) during that time. In a scene where George was wrecking the house modelings, I was scared at first and began to cry. I've always wanted to see this since then. I kept watching till my sister came to check on me and I was caught red handed. I used to go to a scene where Sam finds out that George is dying and weep any trouble out just like I did with De-Lovely. If I was to change everything, I would have George, Sam and the others build that house and then after it was finished, then he (George) gets cancer. Then a few months after the house was built, he's no more. This is where I admire Hayden Christensen from. His acting is not cringe worthy. Luckily he wasn't ranked or in the honorable mentions of the Top 10 worst movie actors. Though I did see him at the end of the video from Star Wars episode II. "I hate them!" he stated. This film is so spirit lifting and powerful. Anytime I watch that scene with George and Alyssa kissing and asking questions about kissing, I thought "I'd rather shake his (Kevin) huge hand than feel his perky lips." I used to get scared when I see Kevin get hurt or die on screen. I don't do that anymore. Makeup looks more beautiful on women than it is on men. Thumbs up on everything.
Grand Canyon (1991)
Grand Canyon is spectacular. I never heard about it at all until my dad pointed it out when I came across Kevin Kline for the 4th time while I was deciding if I wanted to be a fan or not. Then I did a ton of research and made a plan to see it once I graduated high school. I instead saw it at age 16. The 4 scenes I originally wasn't supposed to watch at that time were not as terrible as they look. It is indeed the Big Chill of the 90's but it also made me think a tiny bit of ensemble cast movies like Valentine's Day and What to Expect when You're Expecting. The flying scene that Mack (Kevin) is dreaming about was my absolute favorite scene of all. It made me think of when I traveled to Hollywood and visited the Chinese Theater. I actually went there to see Kevin's star there. This was where I admire Mary-Louise Parker and Alfre Woodard from. This movie is the perfect example of what it's like to live in LA and other cities around the world. I'd prefer to watch this than Crash. (Though I haven't seen Crash) This whole "Mayday mayday, we're going down." thing is the term people use when the plane is crash landing. I'm like Dee a little bit because I'm in love with Kevin even though he's married. Davis was injured throughout most of the movie after he got shot.
Orange County (2002)
Great movie despite the awful stuff at the beginning
Orange County is an amazing teen flick. It's very riveting and spirit lifting. I mostly liked it to see the uncredited cameo of Kevin Kline playing Marcus Skinner. When Shaun (Colin Hanks) picked up Marcus's book, I got excitedly struck when Kevin's voice said "Read me." I was shocked. I thought of the great times that I had when I was in high school. In situations where it's involved with drugs, it made me think of Alice in Wonderland because many people who took drugs think that it's something you watch when you take them. In a Disney UK opening of a VHS, a voice mentioned it as: "Where nothing is as it seems." I also didn't realize that Schuyler Fisk is the daughter of Sissy Spacek and Jack Fisk. I had to find it funny when Don Durkett took the pain medicine and acted like he was woozy. I'm not so much into Romeo and Juliet. 2 of my 7 men made uncredited cameo appearances. Kevin of course as I mentioned earlier played Marcus Skinner and Ben Stiller played a firefighter. On the back of the DVD I brought home it wrote Martin Skinner. That's a typing error. In scenes where Shaun met Marcus, I had to pretend to be him (Shaun) and say stuff like "My hands are numb. My legs are shaking. And my heart is racing." I say that because that was how I felt when I met Kevin at age 16. It's sort of a mixture of I think of random stuff and I think of the wonderful times I've had with him. The only thing I would change for this is to make Marcus a bigger role and Kevin's name on the credits of any kind. Then at least I would enjoy it more. But that would've been a spoiler alert so I'm pleased that it's uncredited. I imagined myself seeing it on the big screen in 2002 and I would've sat and enjoyed the movie. Then I get surprised and shocked that he makes a cameo and people would ask "Is that Kevin Kline?" If I did, I would've never see him as anything but as Phoebus. Now I see him as more than that. Throughout the course of the film, I kept hoping that Shaun would get into Stanford. Then at the end of it, I realized the difference and said "No. Let him stay in Orange County so that he can spend time with is friends and Ashley." This is amazing.
Definitely, Maybe (2008)
Great but I liked it because of an actor I love with all my heart
This movie is spectacular. It's like a love square between Will and the 3 women to find out who is Maya's mother. This is where I admire Ryan Reynolds from. I wanted to see it on the big screen but my family and I never got to. Instead we rented it. I got bored a little bit. It makes me feel absurd when Abigail kept saying the organs for men and women at the beginning of the movie. A few months after my parents and sister watched it, I came across Kevin (Kline) for the 4th time. I didn't know his date of birth at that time. Then a few more weeks later, I looked at his filmography and I saw this movie on the list. I was shocked so I asked "You were in Definitely, Maybe?" Then I watched his performance where he and Ryan were in the apartment drinking. I almost didn't recognize him. Next, I scrolled over to see if there are more scenes with Hampton Roth and there are. I was happy. I also admire Rachel Weisz from this movie. Kudos.
Ricki and the Flash (2015)
Amazing!! It's as advertised!
I've always wanted to see this since the very beginning. It all started with an article saying that Kevin Kline and Mamie Gummer signed up to be in this picture. Then filming is in progress and post production afterwords. Next came a trailer and TV spots. Now I find out it's not an independent movie. This is my very first movie with Kevin that I've seen at the Studio City Mesa in Casper. I've been thinking a lot during this. I do like the font and the color of the title. Meryl has a crazy hairdo that is really tight on the roots. Mamie was just a drama queen till she got her hair and her nails done. When everyone in the Brummel family came to a fancy restaurant. Mostly everyone's been dressed up except for Ricki and Julie. The language is mild. Kevin is and always will be so handsome; even for being in his late 60's. When I watched the trailer, I thought about Darling Companion. When I actually got to see this, I actually thought of the trailers and TV spots I watched on YouTube and Facebook, In & Out, The Ice Storm, Beauty and the Beast (2017) and the January 4th 1989 episode of David Letterman. Though I did think of Darling Companion a little bit when Pete and Ricki were craving sweets. It made me think of a scene where Beth and Joseph were in their cabin drinking wine and eating a sweet pickle. That and when they're arguing with one another before Julie said "It's like the 80's all over again." I had to scream in excitement after it was over. Rick Springfield on the other hand rocked on. I noticed that the moment where it goes "You brought your guitar." "Yeah, just the one." was cut out from the final movie. At moments where Julie hasn't slept or showered made me think of my sister when she was depressed because of seeing her teacher murdered. At the end of the movie, when everybody started dancing to the Bruce Springsteen song, I whispered "Come on, Teddy Bear." (I nicknamed Kevin that because he was nice to me when I first met him at age 16 going on 17.) When he (Kevin) and Ricki were craving in sweets, I also whispered "I can still see your eyes looking at me." Whenever I go see a movie with him, I don't think of random stuff like I do to everybody else. Instead, I would think of good times that I had when I got to look at photos, see his movies and TV appearances, etc. I do hope that his profile is not going down where it's not as high as it once was (like Macaulay Culkin or his "French Kiss" co- star Meg Ryan). Many people came to see this either because of Meryl Streep or Rick Springfield. This is when I decided to say "Cray-cray". Some of the photos I see in the movie were from the ones that I collected. When Julie said she tried killing herself, I thought of other suicides and when Robin Williams died of suicide by hanging.
Sickening at first but hard now
I first came across this movie when I was 14 just weeks before my 15th birthday and before I had my very first debit card. I had to get that because at that time, I became interested in foreign language movies. When I found out it's about a 12 year old girl disguised as a boy, it made me think of Mulan where she disguised herself as a man to save her family. This shows me why it's never a good idea for someone like me to travel to the Middle East. I kept hearing the woman's singing voice in my head. I'm too pretty to be disguised as a man. Up to where the mother wished God didn't create women is the worst thing a woman wishes for. I always think about this movie whenever I hear stories about the Middle East. As of right now, this movie, Queen to Play, and Her Name is Sabine are the only foreign language movies I prefer to watch. From their perspective, it's a man's world where only men go out and do stuff and the women are stay at home people but don't go out in public without a man escorting her. Marina Golbahari is a pretty woman for being in her 20s. I looked up what cities like Kabul were like compared to the film and from seeing photos, they're living in the modern times like the rest of the world. Whilst this movie looks like they're living life the old fashioned way.
