Crop And Save
The Lorax (2012)
disappointing even though I never had high hopes in the first place
I was skeptical from the beginning, I saw the commercial and was utterly disgusted. After watching the movie, that was an understatement. I grew up with the original Dr. Suess book, I read it to the point that I had memorized it by age 4, I can still recite parts of it today. I found this "movie"(if you can even call it that) an utter disgrace to Dr.Suess' name. I don't even know where to begin, first off, the animation was horrible and one of the best parts of the book was the artistry of the illustrations. Secondly, there was a love affair. No. This is Dr. Suess we are talking about, not "The Notebook". And the humor in this is horrible. It wasn't funny and I didn't appreciate it in a serious movie. On top of that, the Oncler was an utter disgrace. The Oncler is supposed to never be seen, he is seen and portrayed as a main character. That for me, broke the deal. This movie did no justice what so ever to the book and was a complete waste of my time.
TRON: Legacy (2010)
Tron was 2 hours of my life I am never getting back
I don't know where to start, I am utterly disgusted by the low standards of this movie. All I ask is for an at least decent film, but no. I would not recommend this to anyone it was a waste of my time. I wasn't asking for much, I started the movie with low expectations for it, and even then, I find it amazing how bad this movie actually was.
I I thought it was kind of clever in the beginning having Jeff Bridges playtwo roles, but as I got a better look at Clu, I thought they should have used a different actor. Not that Jeff Bridges wasn't good, it was just that faces animated to look real are just creepy. The ending, I felt, was cheesy and overrated. Just as they were leaving the digital world, I felt like I was going to throw up because of the sheer unoriginality of the scene. In some movies, the only way I can finish the movie is by telling myself that the protagonist will survive. This movie I felt was too safe and too predictable. If I could redo this movie, I wouldn't, it has done enough damage already.
Super Size Me (2004)
I officially started to boycott McDonald's after I saw this.
McDonald's is bad for you, just about everybody knows that. But how bad is it really? Let's find out. Although a bit disturbing, I learned a lot and I don't regret watching it. Let this documentary be a lesson to all Americans, although it tastes good and it has a lot on it's dollar menu your eating grease. It's disgusting. Just walk away from the Big Mac, if you look back and eat one once a month you won't turn into a pillar of salt.
I hope McDonald's lost customers because of this movie. If every American saw this movie, we would have less of an obesity problem. I'm sure of it. McDonald's isn't the only restaurant world, if you just eat half as much McDonald's or just fast food in general, you will live longer.
The King's Speech (2010)
Wow. Just wow. I can't put my finger on it but, that was the single best movie I have ever seen. It puts all other movies in the dust. If there is one movie you have to see before you die, it's The King's Speech. It wasn't a funny movie, but when there was a joke it was pretty funny. Character development people, character development. I made the movie. I didn't like Queen Elizabeth very much, she seemed too uptight and snooty in the movie, although I was happy that she supported her husband through his journey. I was holding my breath throughout the speech. I have never liked historical movies, but this one blew me away.
Battle Los Angeles (2011)
Was this a joke?
How can I put this lightly? It sucked. A whole bunch of bleh. My only praise was that it had good special effects, but that's it. The whole thing was explosions, it was so boring I was texting in the theater. There were only two parts pf the movie I actually remembered, everything else was a mush of explosions and apocalyptic scenes. There was so little of the characters, that by the end of the movie all I knew about them was that they were in the military; I didn't even know their names. Honestly. Of course if you don't know the characters then you can't have character development nor any emotional attachment to the characters. Other movies you can walk away and be crying over the loss of a favorite character. Battle: Los Angeles, no. A total waste of money, and popcorn. It was two hours of my life I am never getting back. I would only recommend it to someone who does't care about characters and appreciates a good action movie. Great action wise, but awful in ever other respect.
I have nothing but praise for Rango. It was one of the best movies I have seen all year. Definitely on my personal list of top 50 movies. A great movie to see with friends and a great family movie. Both of the friends I went to see it with didn't like it for some dumb reason or another, but I absolutely loved it. I was laughing for weeks after, more than worth the $12 I spent to see it in theaters. I was crying because I was laughing so much.I really enjoyed it, all 107 minutes of it. Rango is such a great character, so dramatic and triumphant. The only thing was that I didn't see much character development on his part. These days it's hard to come across good original comedy, but Rango was original and silly. In the trailer they show the actors acting out the movie, and throughout the movie I pictured the actors as the characters and let me tell you it was hysterically funny and it added to my experience. I also felt that it helped the actors get into character more.
