My Favorite Funny Film Stars:
Possibly my favorite Star Wars film, easily of the three prequels.
I hate all the criticism that Episode I gets from all directions. The characters aren't developed supposedly (even though I found no such problem), because it's EPISODE I! This is introducing us to the whole universe technically! What, do you expect there to be a 15 minute short film before this explaining who Qui-Gon exactly is, Obi-Wan, the Trade Federation, etc. This film is more political than the original trilogy because, even though they are great films 4, 5, and 6, they are not with the exception of 5 in my opinion, as adult as this one. People complain about the plot, but its actually fairly simple. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are assigned to protect the Queen of Naboo because the trade federation who is working with the Sith are trying to kill her. Along the way on Tatooine, they find Anakin Skywalker and free him. Sure, the plot could be better and isn't as good as say...all the other films, but it isn't terrible. The special effects are ten years ahead of its time and there is plenty of eye candy. The action scenes are surely the best of the six films in my opinion, and the final battles are easily the best battles in Star Wars. Only reason it isn't my favorite and is a 9, is because of and I'm sure all you Star Wars fanatics agree: Jar Jar Binks. Enough said there.
One of the greatest science fiction/action filmed of all time.
Robocop is easily a masterpiece of science fiction/action cinema and is possibly one of, if not the best sci-fi films along, in my opinion, with T2. The action scenes, especially RoboCop's final showdown with ED-209. The music is entertaining and fits the atmosphere of the film. And another thing I love is, a thing which is even more present in the X/NC-17 rated version of the film: the grittiness of not only the violence, but the film in general. The dark comedy is fitting, pops up at the appropriate times, and is actually quite funny. Peter Weller gives a tour de force performance as RoboCop. Even though you rarely see his face or him as a human, this film would undeniably not be the same without Weller as the titular character. Clarence Boddicker is also one of the greatest villains ever to be portrayed on the screen. All around, this film excels in everything a good action/sci-fi film should have: action, great CGI, great writing/directing, acting, music, atmosphere, a believable and frightening villain, a real plot, interesting setting, and something recent sic-fi/action flicks have been lacking; charm, heart, and wit.
The Twilight Zone (1959)
The greatest masterpiece of television ever.
I do not even know where to begin describing my love for The Twilight Zone. I grew up watching the Twilight Zone. On TV of course, I wasn't born in 1960. There is not one episode of this fantastic show that has failed to frighten and intrigue me, and obviously there is always the classic Twilight Zone twist/unsuspected ending, in which we are always baffled by the brilliant Mr. Serling. Rod Serling was obviously one of the smartest and most creative men to walk this planet, and being a writer myself, he among other television/film writers serve as my main inspiration. Rod Serling, every week, made thousands and thousands of people sit in front of their television to see "this week's" creative, frightening, disturbing, and intriguing 30 minutes of television. The Twilight Zone was also just so adult and mature about everything, and that's what I love. Although I do love South Park/Family guy-esquire humor/content, I love that unlike today's TV shows, The Twilight Zone did not have to be grotesque, irreverent, or just downright inappropriate to entertain. And still, 51 years after the first episode, every episode continues to scare me, as well as the theme. And, embarrassing as it is, there are some episodes I still can't watch in the dark and/or at night! To not ramble any further, thank you Mr. Serling, who was a creative and ingenious individual who entertained and intrigued millions of people worldwide.
RoboCop 3 (1993)
Not the Worst, but obviously and easily not the best
I don't think Robocop 3 is by any standard, a bad movie. I just think it has earned a bad rep. So to start off, I'm going to assume that 95% of the people that watched Robocop 3 saw and enjoyed Robocop 1 or 2. So let's actually see what 3 has in common and not with 1 and 2.
-3 does have the absence of Weller, which made all fans upset. -It is PG-13, and one of the things that made Robocop so fun was the dark violence. -This one has random ninjas and Asian children named Nikko. -This one does have an unrealistic plot, but not entirely. (I'll touch upon that later). -Characters, at least for me, weren't so likable and you definitely didn't care about Robo as much as you did in the last 2 films.
-3 does try and somewhat succeed in being like Robocop with the news reports and the opening scene that doesn't pertain to the plot. -The quips Weller delivered that Burke does fairly well. -Although PG-13, still a fairly gritty movie. -Brings back some of the humor and wit that was noticeably absent in Robo 2. -Has DECENT CGI, but if you want to argue about bad CGI, take a look at the scene in Robo 1 when Dick falls from the OCP building.
So, when people complain about the unrealistic plot about OCP breaking down people's apartments and sending people to camps, its a lot like Sin City (another Miller movie). The government and all courts and stuff are most likely corrupt and could care less about what happened here.
So all in all, definitely not a good Robocop movie, but you won't suffer from watching this. Hell, you might even enjoy it.
The Dark Knight (2008)
One of the greatest films of all time
This is an amazing film that was definitely one of the best ever. Very complex but not too much for the watcher to not understand or be lost and lose interest in the film. There are many climaxes, great action scenes, and several plot twists and a good moral that everyone can live by. Heath Ledger (who is one of the best actors who ever lived) created the darkest most psychotic man in movie history and makes who feel an emotion for The Joker (in this case it is hatred). Aaron Eckhart also gives a true and sadistic performance. Great performances also come from Maggie Gylenhaal, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, and Christian Bale (who continues to play an amazing Batman. I am a little shocked at the PG-13 rating because of the level of sadism in here and The Joker (and I am 15 years old) is very scary and I could barely sleep. The only reason I give it a 9 is because the voice of Batman grows on you and becomes annoying after an hour or so. Great writing, directing, cinematography, art direction, visual effects, music, and it is the biggest shock how The Reader (which is only decent in my opinion) got nominated for Best Picture instead of this. The Dark Knight was definitely snubbed big time and it is unfair that it was not a Best Picture Nominee. Overall, it is amazing and you should watch it.
