When I saw the trailer of this movie, I expected it to be a summer blockbuster. I was right. The acting was superb and the war and fighting scenes were great, but if you were to relate this to The Iliad or The Odyssey written by Homer, you really won't like the ending. I thought the ending was fine, but if you think the outcome of the movie is going to end like the stories, you are terribly mistaken. I will say no more of the ending and will leave you to judge for yourself.
This film is made up of stars and they were all great. The massive war scenes are awesome. The individual fights are also terrific. Any war movie buff would love this film.
**** out of 5
When I saw the first season of Wiseguy, I thought that this show was great.
It had action, drama, and surprises. Ken Wahl was the perfect fit for Vinnie
Terranova. Another good actor in the series was Jonathan Banks (Frank
McPike). I knew Part II with Mel Profitt would be good.
Mel Profitt, played by a young Kevin Spacey, was in my opinion average with Ray Sharkey as Sonny Steelgrave. He was crazy which made him a great Profitt. William Russ as Roger LoCocco was a great supporting actor also.
But when Ken Wahl was removed from the show because of being overweight, the show sucked. Scarface actor Steven Bauer didn't finish Ken' slot. The show went down from their and was canceled at the end of 1990.
Overall rating (Without Steven Bauer): 7/10
"Only the Toes Know" - Mel Profitt, Season 1: Part II
The Matrix trilogy changed movie cinema. It started out great and ended
great. Starring Keanu Reeves ans Thomas "Neo" Anderson, he was brilliant.
These movies definitely puts him over the top of some actors. He is "Neo",
The One who will save the human race and their last city Zion. Fighting
along side him is Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne
Moss) who are also great. They help him fight the battle with the
The Matrix was the start of something great. It's fight scenes, it's gun scenes, and the special effects. Also the actors. People like Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Laurence Fishburne, Hugo Weaving (who played a great villain), and Joe Pantoliano. Once I saw this film, I knew they would make great sequels.
The Matrix Reloaded was even better. My opinion that it is the best one out of them all. That one fight scene with Neo and the 100 Agent Smith's took my breath away. Great fighting choreography. Plus, the highway scene had to be the best car chase scene in movie history.
The Matrix Revolutions ended the trilogy well. A lot of people said that the ending and the movie itself was bad. My opinion: they're wrong. It was a decent ending. It couldn't have ended better. Also, the movie was pretty good. It had lots of action and the war inside Zion was perfect. What I liked about this film is that the movie didn't just focus on the main characters. It showed the people of Zion in it defending their city most of the time.
The Matrix trilogy will be remembered forever and will be compared as one of the top movies ever made.
Eddie and the Cruisers is kind of a Behind the Music story. It has a very
good plot and the actors were good. The music from John Cafferty and the
Beaver Brown Band is probably the best thing about this movie. Any music
and/or rock and roll will love it.
Eddie and the Cruisers: Eddie Lives! wasn't as bad as people thought. The
sequel's soundtrack was exceptional. The acting though needs a lot of
but other than that this movie is okay, but there are a lot of gaps in the
movie. The music makes up for it though. I kind of liked this a little
better than the original because it shows what is actually happening from
Eddie himself. Not as many flashbacks either. If you see the sequel first,
you are gonna give bad reviews about this movie because there are a lot of
references made to the first that you won't understand.
This All Century Team documentary is excellent. This documentary shows the
25 best baseball players of the twentieth century. Baseball players like
Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Pete Rose, Jackie Robinson, Joe
DiMaggio and many more. If you get the DVD of this (which I recommend),
get the documentary, the top 100 baseball players ever, what happen before
they were honored for the All Century Team in Boston and much more. This
a fantastic documentary.
XXX is a good action movie with some flaws. One thing is all of his stunts?
Nobody can do what he did. Second, the whole story line. It don't seem like
a big threat of what the terrorists were doing. But this movie is still
Road To Perdition is one of the best movies of 2002. Tom Hanks is Mike
Sullivan Sr., a enforcer for the Irish mob, headed up by boss John Rooney
(Paul Newman). When his family is killed, he wants revenge. John Rooney is a
little scared that Mike might go after him, so he sends out an assassin
(Jude Law) to kill Mike. Mike and his son Mike Jr. (Tyler Hoechlin) are on
the run from an assassin and on the run for revenge. Road To Perdition is a
flashback of what the 1930's was. Tom Hanks is great and Paul Newman is one
really good actor.
Road To Perdition - "A Cheer"
9 1/2 out of 10

Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro are back 21 years later from The Godfather Part II. Has one of the greatest shootouts in movie history. Al Pacino is a superb cop and Robert DeNiro is a great convincing villian. Val Kilmer and Tom Sizemore team up with DeNiro as they act along great in this film. Great story, great film.
I think this is the best baseball movie ever. The look-a-likes are unbelievable, the setting is so real, and the story was like the real thing. Barry Pepper (Roger Maris) and Thomas Jane (Mickey Mantle) are a great pair. Billy Crystal did an excellent job directing this movie. Other perfect roles were Anthony Michael Hall (Whitey Ford), Bruce McGill (Ralph Houk), and Christopher McDonald (Mel Allen).
