Girl Fever (2002)
Hit-or-miss, to say the least.
I went into this movie knowing that I've seen both Eight Days a Week and 100 Girls in succession and liking both of them; unfortunately, I was taken aback when I saw this movie.
First of all, the formula for this kind of movie was tampered with: usually, you have a reluctant hero who just happens to be attracted to one girl. In Eight Days a week, the love interest was Erica (played by the talented and beautiful Keri Russel), in 100 girls, we didn't know at first, but it later turned out to be Patty (played by yet another cinematic stunner, Emanuelle Chriqui.) In this one, we were all tripped up, me included.
Secondly, I was used to seeing Johnny Green as the main dick-weed antagonist. That's all I have to say.
Lastly, sure I understood the message: that we men need women to truly become reformed versions of ourselves, but it was done so disgustingly.
In summation, it was just a lesser version of its predecessor and nothing more.
This movie wasn't terrible, but it wasn't very good. It's worth a 6 out of 10.
It wasn't terrible, but the original is always the best.
I've officially watched all three HSM movies in succession and I've given a review to the first two: it's now time for me to evaluate this one.
Knowing my love of musicals, I went into this with an open mind. I can honestly say that this wasn't as good as the first, but not as bad as the previous; it was split right down the middle.
It did have its flaws, (I of course have to put at the forefront the repetition of many of the musical numbers, which was my only main gripe.) but it did have its redeeming qualities. (The story was OK, and not at all hard to follow, and the way it wrapped up was fairly decent.) If you watched this and were hoping for true cinematic greatness, it wasn't, but if you were also thinking it'd be as horrific as "Gigli," you'd be mistaken too. It was nothing more than just a light fluff that everybody can enjoy.
HSM3: Senior Year gets a respectable 8 out of 10
The Big Lebowski (1998)
Everyone should see this.
Even if you've never been into this genre, or movies directed by the Coen Brothers, there's no denying that this movie is a must-see for everybody.
Now, some would argue that in order to fully understand and enjoy this film you'd have to be stoned, but even if you're completely sober you're still going to find this funny in some aspect; I should know, I watched this at least 10 times and it is hilarious! Not only is this movie funny, but it's also very quotable. I challenge anyone to find a person that can't quote one portion of the movie and have someone else know what they're talking about. It's THAT quotable.
Now for the verdict: The Big Lebowski gets a 10 out of 10.
Detroit Rock City (1999)
This shows just how far metal-heads will go for a good concert.
I've known a lot of people like the members of the fictitious MATMOK that'd label bands like KISS as "demonic," and every one of them are all insane.
This movie is not for them.
This movie is, however, for all of us that will go through absolute hell to see a killer concert, but this movie isn't just about the music; it's about being able to put your foot down and say, "if you don't like the stuff I do, you can just eat it!" Now, I'm no psychiatrist, but if I were, I'd say that Jam's mother had some repressed sexual desires. Did you see how she practically ate that priest's hand when she tried to kiss it out of respect? In any case, this movie is perfect for the rebellious rocker in all of us.
Well worth the price of admission
I went into this movie alone knowing only what I know thanks to the trailers on TV, and considering it was such a small crowd, I was kind of worried.
Good news, though: it was actually funny and fun to watch.
They said that it was "this year's Juno," which I find a bit concerning because this wasn't as heavy.
The characters are likable, the story was decent and reasonably new, and there was no shortage of heart.
For these reasons, I actually liked this.
The only drawback was that it seemed that it concluded way too neatly; other than that, it was a pretty good movie.
The verdict: this definitely a 9 out of 10.
Happy Gilmore (1996)
Golf doesn't get any funnier
Aside from Caddyshack, I don't think that a golf movie has ever made me laugh as hard as I did when this came out, and that's saying something.
Contrary to what the DVR may say about this movie, it's actually worth watching all the way to the end; it's one of those movies where you don't have to think too hard to appreciate it.
Admittedly, all the networks that play this edited don't do it justice; Of course, that's the case with most movies on network TV. Stay away from them.
If I could mention any flaws with this movie, it'd be what I just mentioned above. Other than that, this was a very well-made movie.
Revenge of the Nerds (1984)
A movie that is not to be missed by anyone.
It's been years since I've seen this movie all the way through, but it was worth it to see it on TV Land only a few nights ago.
Being neither a nerd or jock myself back in the day, I still understand the idea of taking down tormentors like the Alpha Betas.
The jokes are absolutely timeless, considering that 80's comedies never really go out of style.
Everyone can identify with this movie and that is one of the reasons why it's so memorable and so quotable.
The other reason being that everybody loves a good underdog comedy... there's no other way to say it.
Now for one of my verdicts: this movie is an absolute 10 out of 10
The movie outdoes the books!
First, let me just say that for the longest time I've had the biggest vampire fixation, and even knowing that the books sort of left me cold, there was practically no way to stop me from seeing this movie.
I was even skeptical to bring my friend along to see it, but in any case, we did and we loved it! The plot translated very well to screen, (I loved the baseball scene.) the effects were decent, and the fight scene between Edward and James kept me in suspense. (Sorry to all you fan-girls out there, but it has to be said: in a stunning upset, the movie was better than the book.) The cast choice was interesting. The look of the characters actually surprised me; that goes double for Carlisle; he looked younger than I had pictured.
As always, the romantic aspect was a draw to me. I think we can all relate to Bella's situation: wanting someone that could possibly be harmful to us.
the only disappointment I can name is that the ending didn't exactly match up. Didn't Edward leave Bella in the first book? Anyway, on with my verdict. I give Twilight a 9 out of 10.
100 Girls (2000)
Another narrative masterpiece from Michael Davis
I really enjoyed watching this movie for several reasons.
Firstly, (and let's get this out of the way right now) it was written by the same person that gave us "Eight Days a Week," another narrative classic which gives guys like me hope.
Second, it delves into not only the male frame of mind, but also takes us into the other side of the spectrum and shows us how women think about men.
This time around, we have a different character: Matthew, who, during a blackout on a college campus, has a sexual encounter with an unknown girl in an elevator. Unfortunately, when he comes to in the elevator, the only thing that can connect him to said unknown girl is her panties.
Just like "Eight Days a Week," Matthew also has a friend with an absurd quirk. (Think Peter's friend with an even more disgusting prop.) I've noticed in these movies that the narrator has such vivid descriptions of their objectives or possible threats... it's like there's something even I could stand to brush up on.
Finally, I love how it all ties together. I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it, so I'll just leave you all with this: anyone who sees Michael Davis movies will become obsessed with Michael Davis.
Mahô sensei Negima! (2005)
Really fun to watch
As many people know, I'm a HUGE anime fan, and I especially have a thing for harem anime like this.
In any case, the story does it's job well: advancing the story while simultaneously providing some (very excellent) fan service here and there.
The aspect of forbidden love was also a major factor in why this show has the audience it does. Everybody loves that classic angle... and if not, there's something seriously wrong with you.
It also helps that Negi and his students have such distinct personalities; from Nodoka's quiet and shy nature to the child-like spunkiness of the Narutaki Twins, Fuka and Fumika.
This is sure to be a pleaser to many an anime fan! 10/10
