Running Scared (2006)
A gritty, all-out, non-stop rush till the end.
I went into this movie hearing good things from a few friends that had seen it. Decided to take a spin and watch it with a friend. I was thoroughly impressed. The movie holds together well and Paul Walker actually pulls it off. The gritty feel of the movie and the stylization of it were really well done. The shoot-outs and gore were a bit over the top but for the setting of the movie it fit just right. The plot drags on a bit but remains interesting for the most part. There are a couple twist and turns along the way somethings that can easily be figured out some you may not expect. It's a gritty, mobster/noir film. I thoroughly enjoyed it and so did my friend. The ending was a bit shoddy and campy but doesn't destroy the movie. I'd recommend it to anyone that likes film noir, mobster movies, or anything with some good violence and a nice story to go along with it.
Date Movie (2006)
Just got back from screening this movie at my theater. Went into it not expecting too much and it's a good thing I didn't. You can't even really call what they're trying to do spoofs. The movie basically consists of scenes from every big name movie that has been out in the past year. Some of the scenes referencing other movies last maybe a .5 second. It's like they tried to cram as many movies into this thing as they could. Rather than going for quality they went for quantity, and some of the attempted spoofs are just downright stupid, and not in a funny way. None of the group that I watched it with enjoyed it. You'll find yourself watching a "spoofed" scene waiting for them to do something different from the original, and then when it comes to that point you'll find yourself like "that's it? that's all they're changing about it?". It leaves much to be desired and was a huge letdown from the Scary Movie films. Don't go into this expecting it to be anywhere near the quality of a Scary Movie film, at least those have some funny points.
First Anime I've watched and it got me hooked
Last year my roommate got me hooked on watching Naruto. I had never really been a big Anime fan. Shows like DBZ and Inuyasha never really appealed to me. I had seen a few episodes of Tri-Gun and found it rather interesting but the story of Naruto is what really drew me in. The quality with which it is written is very well done. And is not centered entirely around fighting, there actually is a plot here. The story is about 3 ninjas as they progress from genin level (beginning ninjas) onward to some rather high lvl battles and their hardships along the way. Each of these characters is well described with a rich background. And each character possesses unique abilities, none of which I have found boring or pointless so far. Currently I have read all the manga and have all the Anime downloaded. It is a truly excellent series. I fear that if they do bring it to the US. that sites that provide us with the anime may not be allowed to continue providing us with the show and if it comes to US television it will be edited because they will probably intend for kids to watch it and in it's original state it is entirely inappropriate and in no way should be compared to a Saturday morning cartoon show. The different jutsus are exciting to watch and well thought out. Battles can tend to last multiple episodes but to me that does not matter, the flashbacks just add to the storyline. The quality of the actual animation which can really be seen during the fight scenes is unbelievable. They truly have some very talented artists working for them. Lastly, the music is top notch. The intro's are extremely cool and the music in the actual show is also very well done.
