From Justin to Kelly (2003)
So Bad it's Funny
I watched part of the movie just out because I was curious. THe people I know all said it was horrible, I guess I just wanted to check it out. For starters, what Miami beach were they on?? The dress code must have changed quite a bit over the past couple of years. The dance scenes best represented those old GAP commercials which aired years back, I think they were wearing GAP. Anyway, these young kids are singers not actors, mistake #1. The rest of the cast were at best models for a discount store magazine and were not actors, mistake #2. With the money and clout that American Idol has, they should have waited a year or two, got quality writers and "a" director and it would then at least been a B movie. I don't think they were setting out to make West Side Story here, but, I think this was rushed with the "strike while the iron is hot" mentality. BAD, BAD, BAD!!!
War of the Worlds (2005)
Death and destruction with present day parenting ability
For the films first 20 - 30 minutes the film really had my mind racing, but, for the rest of the movie we were stuck in a story line of Ray Ferrier's abilities as a father with a few injected alien attacks. Don't get me wrong I enjoy an emotional aspect to a movie such as this; all disaster movies need some drama so we'll embrace or hate the characters (for reference check out the 70's library of disaster movies). However, this movie had so much eye candy to offer I felt like it could have given the audience more fight so the movie would have more balance. I do feel it is a good movie and Spielberg did have his work cut out for him with the original already being a sci-fi masterpiece. He said it isn't a remake, which explains the character development being more explored than the original. The special effects are magnificent, the way the aliens exterminate us humans is a original concept. The tripods are crafted extremely well and the sounds they emanated made my deafness worthwhile. The aliens however seem a bit goofy looking. In the end, I do recommend the movie; it is worth the ticket price.
