Crop And Save
An original romantic comedy/romantic drama
This movie tells the story of two best friends, Jack and Miles who go on a road trip to California's wine country to celebrate Jack's last week of freedom before his wedding. Along the way they meet two beautiful women named Maya and Stephanie who they fall in love with. Jack is very open-minded about his relationship with Stephanie even though he's getting married while Miles is more insecure and shy about his relationship with Maya.
What I like about Jack and Miles is that even though they're friends, they very different and interesting characters and you never know how their relationships with Maya or Stephanie are going to turn out and the relationships of the four characters done wonderfully. And this movie is a different road trip comedy unlike Dumb and Dumber or Planes, Trains and Automobiles because its more subtle as well and its more of a drama than a comedy but it still has it's funny moments. I also like Alexander Payne's work like The Descendants, Nebraska and Election and Sideways is definitely another triumph for him. I only wish Paul Giamatti could've at least got an Oscar nomination like Thomas Haden Church and Virginia Madsen.
The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)
Another Alfred Hitchcock/James Stewart triumph!
I'm a big fan of both Alfred Hitchcock and James Stewart and I really like their film collaborations like Rope, Rear Window, Vertigo and of course, The Man Who Knew Too Much. But in my opinion, this remake is probably one of Hitchcock's more underrated work. But I'm sure it was a hit when it first came out in 1956 and it even won an Oscar for Best Original Song. But I think this film deserves a higher rating on IMDb than 7.5. But I have to say, I never actually watched the original movie of 1934 and this is pretty much the only movie I've seen of Doris Day. But she and James Stewart did a great job as a married couple trying to save their boy and stop an assassination in London. And I've also heard that Doris Day mostly starred in romantic comedies and musicals and this one of her few serious roles but she really proved herself as a drama actress. And this remake has pretty much everything that makes a Hitchcock movie a classic: great acting, great mystery, great cinematography, great directing and great storyline.
An underrated sequel
I grew up watching the first two Jurassic Park movies and I was crazy about dinosaurs as a kid and I used to have lots and lots of dinosaur toys. The first Jurassic Park movie is a classic and is up there as one of Steven Spielberg's best who also one of my favourite directors.
But what I can't understand is why a lot of people didn't like The Lost World - Jurassic Park. I mean sure it may not be as good as the first one and it has flaws and plot holes and some cheesy dialogue. But I mean even the first movie had flaws, plot holes and cheesy dialogue as well. But I think The Lord World deserves more credit because it has more characters, more action and more dinosaurs. And I also thought Jeff Goldblum did just as good a job as the main protagonist as Sam Neill did.
I also can't believe that this movie was nominated for multiple Razzies including Worst Screenplay and Worst Sequel. I mean I can understand why bad movies like Con Air or Batman & Robin for nominated for Razzies but The Lost World just didn't because those movies were far worse.
Malcolm in the Middle (2000)
And they say The Simpsons are a dysfunctional family
When I first heard of Malcolm in the Middle, I wasn't interested in watching it. But when I finally gave it a chance I was practically hooked on it. It's too bad that the show's ratings declined as the seasons went on and even though some episodes/seasons are better than others but it was still a very popular sitcom in its day . In fact, it was probably as popular as The Simpsons or Futurama.
My favourite season of the show is probably the second season because it has a lot of memorable and funny episodes like The Grandparents and Casino and Bowling (which is considered by most to be the best episode of the show).
But I have to admit the show does have its annoying characters like Malcolm or Lois. I know its weird to say the main character is annoying but Malcolm a lot of the time is a whiny know-it-all and nobody likes a whiner or a know-it-all. And Lois is such a loudmouth and control freak sometimes I just want to punch her in the face. But aside from that, the funny characters are great, especially Hal and Reese and sometimes even Dewey and some of the supporting cast. But my favourite is Hal because he's a dim-wit and a screw-up and often gets himself into trouble. But other characters like Francis and Jamie seem pretty unnecessary and I think the show should just focus on Hal, Lois, Reese, Malcolm and Dewey.
Batman: The Animated Series (1992)
The best superhero cartoon ever!
I've been a big Batman fan for as long as I can remember and I think Batman: The Animated Series is what first introduced me to one of the greatest (or in my opinion, the greatest) superhero ever made. It has pretty much everything that a cartoon needs to be perfect: excellent voice-acting, (particularly by Mark Hamill), excellent animation and excellent story-lines. I have to say, the experimental orchestra music really works with the cartoon. And I think the creators of the show took all the aspects and from Batman and put it together with this cartoon like the drama from the comics and the darkness and Gothic themes of the Tim Burton Batman movies and maybe even the camp from the Adam West Batman show. I also love how the characters are portrayed like Two-Face, The Riddler, The Joker, Mr. Freeze and Scarface. My favourite episode of the show is probably "Almost Got 'Em" where all the Batman villains come together to talk about how they almost killed Batman even though most people say it's the best episode and I quite agree with them.
Angelina Jolie at her best!
I'm a big fan of Clint Eastwood and I also like Angelina Jolie even though she does tend to star in bad movies like Salt and The Tourist. But she really proved herself as an actress in Changeling and this is another triumph for the great Clint Eastwood even though some parts of the movie are not accurate but other than that, it's one of the best movies of 2008.
I'm amazed that I had never heard about the true story about Christine Collins and the Wineville Chicken Coop Murders. Like we start with a single mother living in Los Angelos who's son goes missing. But after a while, the police find a boy but he's not her son. But the police insist Christine by taking the boy home and try him out even though she keeps telling the police he's not her son. She finds evidence proving that the boy isn't her son and begs the police to reopen her son's case. But as a result, the police become outraged and put her in a psychiatric ward. Then later the police arrest a teenager who confesses that he and his psychotic cousin (or uncle) Gordan Northcott kidnapped and murdered a bunch of kids. He identifies one of the boys as Walter Collins.
But it's nice to see that a film as dark and tragic as this one had a happy ending when the police find a boy, who was presumed killed at the ranch where the group of boys were murder, escaped the ranch along with Walter Collins and another boy. And in the end, this gave Christine Collins hope.
In conclusion, if you're a Clint Eastwood fan and/or an Angelina Jolie fan, I'd recommend that you see this movie because I'd say you'd love it!
One of my childhood favourites
I watched a lot of cartoons and animated series in my childhood but I have to say that Rugrats are one of those cartoons that make me wish I was a kid again or lived in the 90s again. It's hard to believe that the Rugrats is over twenty years old now and it's nice to know I'm the same age as the show.
As a kid, I watched Nickelodeon cartoons very religiously and Rugrats was always my favourite. However, I do remember there was a time where I got tired of the Rugrats because I was then watching TV shows like Pokemon. But then when they added new characters I found it more interesting.
But what I can't understand is why a lot of people really hated the new Rugrats episodes and the new characters like Dil and Kimi. Sure, the new episodes may not have been as clever and creative like the early episodes but they were still worth-watching and if you ask me, I think the Rugrats really got bad when they grew up in All Grown Up. It was a nice idea at first to see the babies act as teenagers but to make a sequel TV show was just lame and unnecessary. But still we got the classic show of the Rugrats and Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Angelica, Susie and maybe even Dil and Kimi will leave there mark on television and I pity those kids who didn't get to experience 90s cartoons.
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Joss Whedon has done it again!
After a disappointing 2014 of awful and overrated movies like Dumb and Dumber To, The Imitation Game, Boyhood, The Expendables 3 and Interstellar, 2015 is one exciting year for movies like Mad Mad: Fury Road, Spectre, Jurassic World, Star Wars and of course, Avengers: Age of Ultron . And so far it turns out to be one of the best movies of this year so far! To all those who didn't like this movie; shame on you!
I loved the first Avengers movie, in fact I consider it to be the greatest superhero movie of all time. Forget about The Dark Knight. Sure, Heath Ledger's Joker was incredible but to put it higher than classics like The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and even Pulp Fiction and many more on IMDb's Top 250 list it just ridiculous.
What makes Avengers: Age of Ultron a great sequel is that there's is more in it than there was in the first movie: more funny parts more action, more romance, a better villain and most important of all, more Avengers (.e. Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, War Machine and Vision). The only flaw with Avengers: Age of Ultron is that we don't see much of Nick Fury. Sure, he was in some of it but if he was in it more, I'd probably give Avengers: Age of Ultron 10/10.
As well as being an Avengers fan, I'm also a big fan of Joss Whedon's other work like Firefly, Serenity and Toy Story (which he co-wrote). And I can safely say, he managed to make a superhero movie that's almost as epic as the first.
"If it bleeds, we can kill it."
I can't count how many times I've seen this movie, which I first saw about five years ago and I still haven't gotten tired of it and it's still up there with my favourite movies of all time. In fact, to me, this is Arnold Schwarzenegger's best film, next to Terminator 2: Judgment Day and the best film John McTiernan ever directed even though I still think Die Hard was brilliant as well.
I'm surprised that this movie, when it was first released, got negative reviews from critics but apparently it was popular with audiences and is now considered an action/sci-fi classic. In fact, I think this film deserves to be on IMDb's Top 250 list. I know it has some similarities with the other sci-fi movie, Alien like a creature from another planet kills off the characters one by one until it's up to the main protagonist to take it down but I don't really mind that.
But not only has this film have great action sequences but it also has good characters besides Schwarzenegger's Dutch, but also like the silent and mysterious Billy (Sonny Landham), the tough mini-gun commando, Blain (Jesse Ventura) and the psychotic Mac (Bill Duke) and of course the deadly hunter alien (Kevin Peter Hall, RIP). The film also has a lot of memorable quotes like "Any time", "I ain't got time to bleed" and of course "Get to the chopper!".
It's just a pity that this film didn't get any decent sequels like Predator 2 or the Alien vs. Predator movies (which I haven't seen thankfully) but the most recent sequel Predators was good enough but it wasn't anything special and sometimes you can't beat the original.
Pixar's greatest work since Toy Story!
I'm a big fan of Pixar and Pixar has given us a lot of classics over the years like the Toy Story movies, Up, Ratatouille and Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo. And WALL-E in my opinion, is one of Pixar's best. It's a beautiful and wonderful story of romance, adventure and science fiction. What I love and what makes this film unique and original is that there is hardly any dialogue between the robots like WALL-E and EVE and they just let the characters tell the story. I'm also glad that it has a high rating on IMDb and has gotten so much praise from critics and fans and it's up there with my favourite films of all time and 2008 was a great year for movies like this one.
