Mississippi Burning (1988)
this movie is sizzling
**MAJOR LEAGUE SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO SPOILT THE MOVIE ALTHOUGH IT IS NINETEEN YEARS OLD, NOT NOT READ THIS.**In the beginning, when I taped it I thought it was boring & slow. But now I really like it. Cuz it really shows the anatomy of hate. It dosen't just show that people hate it also clues you in on WHERE it comes from, kinda. And it's also a movie that "feels real". You can "feel" some of the characters in this movie, if that makes sense.
Everybody did really great. The standout guy is the guy who played the preacher and when he gave that Disturbing "Anglo Saxon Pride" Speech. There are *TONS* of standouts parts in the movie, I'm sure some are bound to stick with you. The Interviews with the locals, especially that old white bi*** with her retarded views on certain races' hygienes, the bar where Gene Hackamn comes in and all the KKKmen stare at him disturbingly even as he jokes casually. The fact that all the patrons in the restaurant turn and stare and Gene and Will when they casually talk to the black dudes in there. And the part where the dude beats his wife up. And when the KKK guys show up out of the blue at the black church, call me corny, but I just envision something like that happening in MY church and get CH--ILLS,seriously. (yes I know I'm pathetic.) There were some corny and unbelievable parts,tho. I mean, for the most part it gives you the feel that it's really 1964. Not just a 1988 movie set in 1964. But the only exceptions is the part where the black guy kidnaps the mayor and interrogates him and threatens to cut his b*lls off if he dosen't talk. Um, not to be crass but to quote A Time To Kill: "That (black man) would be hanging by a tree with HIS b**ls in his mouth" if the white folks found about about that in those days!..ESPECIALLY in Mississiisppi! (no offense to the MS residence) And then the mayor hangs himself from all the guilt. I just can't PICTURE him doing that! That just SCREAMED UNBELIEABLE PC CORN!!! And showing the FBI as these superheroes coming down and actually giving a shyt about the blacks. Just ask the FBI LEADER Hoover, what he thought. He probably woulda said "shoove 'em!" I heard he even thought the Jew Guy Activist was a communist, so please. And the part where the black role is just a meek peasant who gets terrified by Kluckers and they just sit and sulk and preach about it....was...corny. I cared the LEAST about the black roles because of it. They were just there MAINLY to get terrorized and nothing else. It was like (think of an old silent movie): Black person rats *next scene* black persons' house gets blown up. *next scene* black family cries. *next scene* the two FBI agents get mad and THEY alone--do something. (yeah, that black agent DID something, but not a Believable something so don't even try to call me a hypocrite by pointing that out). But in spite of those drawbacks I like it anyway! You can tell cuz I wrote this *MAD* long review!
I don't know what to think. I saw the original and I Luuveed it as my comments suggest. I didn't know what to think about this thing. It wasn't BAD or whatever. I didn't HATE IT--then when I watched it. But the relationships in hairspray 1988 were deeper than in 2007. I don't know if it was because of the musical numbers or what. (Tho I surprisingly liked some songs: Excpet the part when Ambers' Mom sings about being Miss Crab in 1945 and goes in detail with it. Who the F7#& CARES what she did in 1945? I mean in 1988 she mentions it for a millisecond and it's done. In 2007 they Dedicate a whole FRIKKIN song to it!! NOT NECESSARY.) I know it's a musical, but Grease still mananged to be a musical and still have real human connections,in it. I mean for example in 88 Hairspray Penny and Seaweed really bond and you can see why she would risk her bu** for him. In 2007, Penny and Seaweed are just like, "I like you, you like me, let's get together and sing a song!" And Ricki Lake convinces you she's TRACY all the way. This new chick is like: ( I'm Tracy! I sing! I dance! Badda bing badda boom!But that's it!) ehh The only exception where it Didn't come across like that is when they were marching for civil rights. Yeah, most people will probably not agree with that. But that's how it came across to ME. Many in my theatre liked it (esp. if they were old a** white ladies) but me..I just...don't know.
It was Okay, i expected it to be a *bit* more entertaining, but it was OK
MAJOR LEAGUE SPOILERS AHEAD* Ya know what, I know I wrote that is was great, but I'm gonna edit myself because to be honest I only wrote that because I didn't want people thinking I was small-brained for not liking this movie especially since so many people praised it. Yes it's faced-paced, but faced-paced does not = entertaining, especially in this case. I mean, I guess my standards were too high. I was thinking Chicago musicals are always so great, like Grease, Chicago (which I hated in the beginning but grew to like) but Dreamgirls didn't do it for me. I felt really uncomfortable for some reason of the leers Jamie Foxx kept giving Jennfier Hudson whenever she threw a tantrum. I just couldn't even look at the screen cuz because of his stares. That dosen't make for good viewing. And Jennifer Hudson was not convincing enough for me and didn't deserve her Oscar, In my view. Yes I know it's her first time acting, (which should be even more of a reason) She was so...I don't know carboardy at times actually most of the time. When she said she couldn't' believe she's still getting awards at the BET awards, neither could I. She spoke more truthfully than she realized. I still maintain that Beyonce did better...but by Beyonce standards only. And the musicals were too broadwayish and an unmemorable. With the exception of "One Night Only" and the song Eddie Murphy sings. I love 60s music (although I don't think I should being my age) but these broadwayish songs were so blah & gay. And I didn't really care about the story. Yes it was well plotted, but I just couldn't give that much of a damn, I JUST COULDN'T. When people laughed I didn't laugh. And when people clapped when Hudson sang I got confused.
I just didn't like it. My standards probably may have been too high, but I just didn't. See ya on the flip side! Solid!
It Sucked Balls!!!!!!
this movie sucked so badly I mean who could make such a gay movie. I mean it wasn't even scary. It WAS SO STUPID its was more like a porno movie then a horror movie. I fell asleep it was so gay Chain Saw MASSACRE was better than this "movie". Gosh who ever made this movie is not gonna make a lot of money off of it. whoever made this movie is a dumb***
f*** this movie and the characters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am not kidding. This movie was so boring. A Disney land movie is better than this crap. The director of this movie was a drug addict himself. He was on crack when he made this movie. It's a waste of space this movie is. I hated all the parts. no good parts. a bunch of hookers and hoes.
The Ring (2002)

Odd Girl Out (2005)
spoilers and some advice and tells you what it is about
OK i saw this movie on life time it is so sad for a teenage girl to go through that. what happened is the girl was already friends with the popular girls. her friend asks Alexa to ask a guy she likes out but the problem is Alexa likes him too. and then there is the girl with the ugly looking eye brows and face acting like the b*$#& she is telling her friend Alexa likes him. then goes battle one girl faces 3 I'm sure. they verbally abuse her online and in school. all she does is cry. she takes pills and abuses her self and she cuts her hair but nothing absolutlely nothing can make her happy. then the one who liked the guy starts acting like her friend but when the other 2 r around it is the opposite she confuses Alexa leaving her clueless. this movie is realistic and does happen in real life so girls out there i advice you not to fight over a boy its not worth it. be mature and better than that it will really help especially in middle school and high school. shows like elimidate are totally trying to make girls look competitive over boys who aren't worth it so please don't end up like Alexa or be the popular girl be real and not fake. and mature
Funny but corny
I am a preteen, the target audience for Confessions, you know the only people that SHOULD be rating this movie. It is coorrrny! Because, like, what is up with the cartoons of flowers? I mean it's really stupid! I mean the director must be going mad! And the girls talk like they're from california white girls, no offense, when they should be from New Jersey! It's just so weird. The performance was corny but funny. If this is like a disney channel movie, what's up with the "cut the crap" line? Here's the funny part. The funny part is when they say "cut the crap." LOL. And that's like the only funny part of the movie. I thought it was average and unoriginal and they were trying to copy "Clueless". And what's up with her saying her name is Mary Elizabeth But they call her "Lola". How do you get "Lola" out of Mary Elizabeth?
I give it 2 stars Oh by the way, the acting was normal for a girl like Lindsay.
The Cheetah Girls (2003)
Too predictable. I mean, everytime there's a scene going on, you always know what's gonna happen! And it's kinda weird if Channelle is 25 years old how come she's in a "high-school movie"? I have nothing to say about Aquata. I like the songs. Too predictable cuz there's this part in the movie *SPOILERS* when they want to be in this music company of COURSE their mom would say no! You guys crazy?! And another spoiler, If you think that I like predictable movies, girl/boy, you better be plum out of your mind!Oh yeah, what about Raven and the white girl? So the characters were okay in acting and stuff.But I stand to my word. It's to P-R-E-D-I-C-T-A-B-L-E!!!!! And for the kids who didn't see this *whispers* It's a waste of time cuz it's too predictable! And oh yeah, One Star. Well, two stars. Over and out! Bye!
Bring It On (2000)
Good, I guess.
SPOILERS I guess it's good because I like cheerleadin'. And I like the hip-hop team too. It's about a cheerleading team vs. a hip hop cheerleading team. When Redhead steals cheers from the black hip hop team, blacks get mad, they go into this championship and keep on cheearleadin'. The white cheerleaders may have their ups and downs but they made it.
I did NOT LIKE REDHAIR! Oh my god, she is such a (bleep!) I love the black captain, ewww I don't LOVE her, I just like her character. Anyway, I liked the dancing. I like the music I guess. I think it was a good movie. I guess I kinda like "Kristen" "Dunst."
Over and out, rocha.
Really Informative *Kinda long summary*
*SPOILERS* This summary is a bit long, it doesn't mean that I'm all extra into it, it's only long because they're are six different movies in this series and I just feel compelled to comment on each one. When I saw it for the first time in class, it really interested me; mainly because I was so shocked and appalled at the white captain's stereotypes on Africans and his use of the b-word to describe the women. I only got to see it up to the second part in class; which sucked so I took in upon myself to order it. Anyways, this story is about Alex Haley's so-called "relative" Kunta Kinte, his capture, and how he survives in bondage in America. No offense, but some of the accents on some of the people were so ludicrous sounding. I mean, everyone can tell they're CLEARLY from New York or something, not the Old South. I guess they didn't care though. But still why don't they try picking people with less strong accents. It's pathetic. Let us go through the different chapters briefly together.
Chapter I: Well, this basically talks about Kunta's life and Africa, it was there to basically discount the myth that African "ni##ers" were savages. I liked how they showed the respectable ceremonies and how Kunta was trained to be a man and whatnot. It also showed the true savages, the slave ship captains. Especially the slater guy. He was such a scumbag. He was also tried justyfying his racist @$$ statements by ending the sentences like,It's for their own good"--"They're SUITED to be slaves" --"It's good for the crew to bang the wenches." Yuck! Kunta and his friend Fanta and whole lot of other Africans also get captured.
Chapter II: I believe in the beginng they're still in the ship; then it gets to the part where the Africans revolt i almost worked. Too bad they didn't do an "Amistad" and sail the ship back to Africa. Lol. I liked this part because it showed how they revolted. Kunta gets sold to another ignorant, racist caucasoid who also stereotypes by saying idiotic things like, "How can anyone see these people as any better than black monkeys?!" Ugh. Oh yeah this is also the part where Kunta gets whipped into submission by that *CREEPY* Ames character. Boy, was he scary. He was determined to make Kunta submit to him since he was an uppity ni^^er from africa who wouldn't know his role and shut his mouth. That scene didn't really phase me like it did others; that's ironic since I find the dude to be the most creepiest yet the most creepiest scene didn't get to me like it did others. Anyways, he gets whipped and it ends there.
Chapter III: Couldn't really get into this one to tell you the truth. Though it did show how slaves had their body parts cut off if they ran away; and how the pride of Africa was still in some of them; I didn't like it as much as I liked the first, second, fourth, and sixth chapters.
Chapter IV: I liked this one out of all of them; because it shows the impact of slavery on teens like me ;-) . I really felt sorry for the Kizzy character and the Noah character, I wanted to slap the Missy Anne chick, she was the real "wench" here, lol. I don't want to spoil it so I won't go in depth about it. Also like I said I felt sorry for Noah cause he was basically a young version of toby/kunta, uppity proud and a-wantin' ta be free! But that stupid a$$ ogre looking overseer Ordell kept hanging on his nu#*sack until he had no breathing room left. Kizzy, Toby/Kunta's kid, also get violated by that ever-smiling new "massa" Moore. We don't SEE the rape, thank goodness; we do see him grabbing her from behind and her straining to get away, then it cuts to the next scene where she's bruised. The chicken george guy she gives birth to didn't really interest me.
Chapter V: I didn't like this tape; it bored me. Sorry! It's basically about how Chicken George goes to England to pay back his debt for his master. Yawn. And who wants to see a bunch of fighting cocks? I did like the latter part though.
Chapter VI: I liked this chapter. It talks about a guy named Tom and he's being harassed by white soldiers. What I didn't think was real though, was that George Johnson boy. I mean sure there were sympathetic whites back then, but it just went too far sometimes. Like *spoilers ahead* at the end they bow down and do that African like ritual, he's with them and he's into it like it's nothing and he does it naturally; um, he's not the least bit uncomortable doing some "heathen" hasn't he heard the sterotypes about how inferior Africa and everything about it is; and he's doing that. Plus he's singing along with the blacks on the death of Abraham Lincoln like he's one of them or something. And what's up with him all reluncantly uttering thet word "ni&$#er" like he knows it's all un PC and he's just being righteous about it. Puh-lease; people didn't see it as a bad word back then, so shut up george!!! But it was a good ending, and when Alex Haley talks during the end, it's even grander!!! I hope you like it cuz it's a outstanding history lesson ! **** stars!
