Crop And Save
Definite contender for worst movie ever made
I'm a Christian which has nothing to do with my review of this horrible horrible movie. To merely state that it's inaccurate is to state the obvious. But to have no credibility whatsoever, only resembling the true story in that the guys name was Noah is more to the point. News Flash, who knew that Noah was a martial arts expert, schooled obviously in Shaolin style Kung Fu. Surely not I. Nothing about this movie made any sense. Even if I hadn't known the true biblical account, this movie just threw things together for the obvious point of trying to advance a story, and I use the term "story" very very loosely. The writers of this nonsense should be banned from ever doing work in Hollywood again, the producers stripped naked and run through the streets of LA throwing out refund money to all patrons that sat through this cocophony of manufactured feces. Shame on Russell Crowe and Anthony Hopkins for appearing in this travesty, the only excuse would have to be that they never saw the product or read the script save for their own parts and certainly never saw the finished product.
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
Holding up the tradition
My daughter saw this movie before I did and told me that she fell asleep, so I was hesitant to see it and didn't go the first week. Yet I was not disappointed. This movie was funny when it needed to be, and action packed at other times. It's subplot was palpable and more importantly made sense. The main plot seemed a little obvious as to it's immediate resolution in the movie but even though you knew it was coming you had several places where they could've put it so it kept me guessing. Unfortunately, the writers got a little lazy and allowed convenience to enter the movie a couple of key times. My biggest problem was that I wished they'd have done even more with the speed guy, you'll see what I mean.
She's done worse...hasn't she?
I, like many I suspect, only went to see this movie because Angelina Jolie was the star actraction. But not even the lovely Angelina could save this movie. Again, I chose to ignore the critics and go see it. While I can say that I still enjoyed it. I have a serious thing about movies that make things too "convenient" you'll learn what I mean if you choose to go see it. The story was flat, but the visuals were excellent. I'm just sad that I chose not to see it in 3D. It is completely possible to find onesself asleep during this flick as the story is simple and meanders along slowly towards it's predictable, and inevitable conclusion. Anyone who doesn't see it coming should be reintroduced to every movie ever made. Still Angelina deserves at least a 5.
I enjoyed this movie although there was quite a bit that was a little to "convenient" so the story lacked a little credibility, if it's appropriate to say that about a movie about a giant monster. Other than that I thoroughly enjoyed it. In spite of what the professional critics had to say. I'm glad that I chose to ignore them and see it anyway. The ending was especially good, and as was the twist on the original story. I do feel that there was quite a bit that was added a filler material which shows a lack of creativity. It's kinda like they wrote the story around the ending, having written it first. Some things didn't quite add up for me in the story as well. But all in all a fun movie.
Grey's Anatomy (2005)
It used to be good
I had the pleasure of watching a marathon over this past weekend. They started at the beginning and worked their way up. I stopped watching the marathon at the episode at which I stopped watching the series a couple of years ago. But watching the marathon reminded me of how good this show was, and then they ruined it. I personally stopped watching it after they decided to do a musical episode after Dr. Tores was injured. And of course, the burgeoning political under tone that says gay marriage is the norm, under the shows credibility by that time. I wish that they'd take this off the air to make room for better shows. This is a fine example of how popularity breeds contempt.
Hell on Wheels (2011)
Good show, could be Great show
I stumbled on to this series by accident. I was flipping through the channels on one holiday weekend after the Olympics left everyone high and dry for entertainment and Hollywood had seemingly gone on hiatus, or back to film school to learn the difference between interesting and trite; but I digress. As I flipped my sandwich dripped barbecue sauce on my jeans causing me to drop the remote to avoid total laundry disaster. When I looked up, Hell On Wheels was on the big screen TV, it was a Western and I'd just finished watching John Wayne so I got interested quickly. The characters and the dialog caught my attention immediately and held it. Fortunately for me, since it was a holiday weekend this was a marathon so I was catching the entire series up to the premiere the later that night. This is a good show, the scenery makes you feel like this was how the actual old west was, dirty, nasty, unrefined and muddy. The bars don't look like saloons in the John Wayne, or Clint Eastwood epics, but are planks of wood laid across tall whiskey barrels, and there isn't that mysterious light source the illuminates the place in those movies light they're filming a movie or something, eh? Anyway, if the writer's could manage to stay focused and avoid the forays into obscurism just to have the season stretch out for the required time length, then the stories could have more meat on the bone, because by the time you get to this point in the season they've watered it down so much it's like drinking whiskey from a bottle only 1/5 full, and the rest my friend...is water.
The Lorax (2012)
Kids deserve better
Look just because a movie is a kid's movie doesn't mean that the writer's should just slap some crap together and put it out there. I know that kids are easily entertained, but here's a thought, when you make a movie, HAVE A POINT! The Lorax meandered through it's thin storyline like a teenage girl through the mall on a Saturday afternoon, stopping everywhere just to "look at stuff". The best lines of the movie were blurted during all of the previews for weeks ahead of time, and they had no more. The main character wasn't interesting and I saw several children fast asleep clutching their soda or candy. The best thing about this movie will end up being the fact that harried parent's will be able to put it on at bedtime, guaranteed that their little one will indeed be asleep shortly.
Total Recall (2012)
Better title: "I Can't Recall"
This should have been entitled "I can't Recall". Because obviously the writer's couldn't recall that this was supposed to be a remake. Or maybe they couldn't recall what a remake is, or maybe they were trying to redefine the term "remake", or maybe they just couldn't recall what the original storyline was. They should've gone down to the corner RedBox and rented the original then made this movie. Although they did recall to add the chick with 3 breasts, other than this minor detail, the movie was something totally different than the first; which would be OK except for the fact that the original was great. It had a storyline that you could follow, you knew who all of the characters were throughout the entire movie. I sat in the theater pushing my imaginary rewind button just so I could go back to figure out "who's that guy again" not that it would have made a difference because the reason for their inclusion in the story was so convoluted that knowing who they were would only have made the movie even thicker and more mired in clay. They did things for no reason, just random acts, meant to entertain, but not to add any meat to the premise, which I'm still trying to figure out. I've talked to friends who've seen this flick and they can't even explain it. If this was supposed to be a remake, it failed miserably, and if it was supposed to be an adaptation, it rolled over and died on screen. Ugh
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
New Title: The Dark Knight Reaks!!!
THEY CHANGED THE ENTIRE CHARACTER OF THE VILLAIN. All of the stuff that made Bain interesting, they didn't even include in the movie. The premise was idiotic. Batman fans always except that for some reason villains want to take over Gotham City, who knows why; especially since they are stuck in the late 50's with the old cars, slum neighborhood etc. But this was just dumb. First of all they really gave no reason that this would be so in this movie, they usually give us that. Then the costume Bain wore served no purpose except to make him look scary, or in this case like Hannibal Lechter. And then the complete departure from the storyline that took us out of the country for what seemed like hours in real time, before "the Dark Knight Rises" which everyone knew he would, and they didn't even bother to make that interesting. What they succeeded in doing with this movie was making my butt hurt because I had been sitting waaaaay too long. So if you go see it, buy the extra large popcorn, dump a gallon of butter on it, buy a hotdog, a huge soda, lots of candy, take a cushion, because you're gonna be in there for a while, waiting for what you already know is going to happen.
The Bourne Legacy (2012)
Let me first say that the action, although predictable, in this story was fantastic, the storyline while not great, at least made sense. However, this movie was not a movie at all. It's so obvious that what they did was film the entire movie but decided to only show us either the first half, or the first third of it. I'm insulted that a filmmaker has once again stooped to counting their money ahead of time instead of providing entertainment. The fact that there will be a sequel should be a surprise, not the point of the movie like this. I almost asked for my money back. I could hear the air fill with groans of "seriously?" when it ended and mutterings of dissatisfied patrons as we exited the theater, eyes searching for someone to blame. Save your money, rent this, and watch it right before you go see the inevitable sequel or as it's better known, the 2nd half of this movie, or it's conclusion. To say this left me hanging would be like saying the sky is blue or the grass is green, overly stating the obvious.
