Just like that? Dazzle me?!
This movie tells a lovely story about a girl falling in love - with a vampire.
When I first heard about the move and all the hype surrounding it I picked up the first book. I wanted to know what to expect. I usually like seeing the movie first (if it is based on a book), but this time I wanted to be able to see some of the differences between the book and the movie adaptation.
I was not aware the movie was a small budget production. At the beginning it did feel like it. As the movie progressed I started to like it. I liked the fact that the movie closely followed the book and that in a way movie makers preserved the essence of "Twilight". I could see why other readers were not sure if Robert would be able to pull of the role of Edward. I am glad he proved all of them wrong. He proved that he could deal with pressures of becoming a literary character by bringing it to the light of movie screen. (Kudos to HP's Cedrick Diggory as well). Solid - but bits of rocky performances given by the rest of the cast.
Therefore, my overall impression of the movie is that they did the best they could with what they were given. I am sure "Twilight" would have been 100% better had the movie makers been able to juggle billions of dollars on it. But then again there are movies that spend billions of dollars and do not deliver the basic message (or entertainment) to the audience. So "yay!!" for the independent - low budget films. I am looking forward to the "New Moon" because I know all involved will give 110% this time (as not to disappoint the masses - just kidding - but not).
Prison Break (2005)
Keeps me glued
>This show keeps you on the edge of your seat, curious and jumping up and down. It is a show that has a great cast, lovable characters and something that keeps you glued to your television. It has something that not many of today's shows have. I am still trying to figure out what exactly that is. Maybe this show is not as predictable as some of the others? Maybe this show has a better plot? Or cast? Whatever it may be I hope this show will last more than "John Doe" and some of the others that had potential to be great but failed.
>>In the show we meet Lincoln, an innocent man on the death row. And we meet Michael, a brother trying to save him. But nothing in life is simple. It takes courage, time, and a few friends to give you a little push in the right direction. It all comes down to: Who can you trust?
>>>I think this is a great show. I truly enjoy watching it. I have to admit I was drawn to the show because of Dominic Purcell. I used to watch "John Doe", an interesting show he starred in; sadly the network canceled it just after a few episodes. I also watched a few episodes of "Dinotopia" and recognized Wentworth Miller. I am pretty sure that the rest of the people working on the show are making a great deal of difference putting the show in motion.
Complete Savages (2004)
Complete ---> Savages!
I saw all of the episodes aired on TV. Pilot episode was especially entertaining.
At first the Savage family might appear crazy and dysfunctional. The more you keep watching you cannot stop and you realize they function perfectly exactly the way they are. This show is about kids, and a single dad. It is about an uncle, some friends and girlfriends, and of course safety precautions given by Officer Cox. Mel Gibson is hilarious in this role. This show is great. It's funny and entertaining. It's a must see kind of show. It is one of those TV shows that should stay on the TV screens for a while. I bet even re-runs would be fun to watch.
Mind is a very powerful tool.
I think I was about 10 years old when I first discovered "MacGyver". A local TV station was showing re-runs during the late '90s. This TV show caught my attention because of the main character, MacGyver. MacGyver was fun, smart, a modern day superhero whose only superpower was his intelligence. There are many life lessons about friendships, love and finding out who you are. I think Season 4 especially shows many of those important life lessons and through the characters we learned them as well. There are no shows on TV today that can be compared to this particular show. "MacGyver" is truly a unique piece of TV history. I always had a blast watching "MacGyver" adventures. And now years later I still enjoy watching it. I hope that new generations will learn to appreciate the good old - "MacGyver".
Batman Begins (2005)
The first time I saw a trailer for this movie I though it will be a big hit. The critics said it is a big hit. And after watching the movie, I guess I was right. You take a good story, amazing director, mix it with the great and talented actors and what you get is the movie people will be talking about for a while. Christian Bale shines as he changes the traditional Batman character into something completely new. Let's not forget Morgan Freeman who is interesting as always. This movie leaves us guessing and wanting more. I have to say the audience, including myself, will be looking forward the next chapter of Batman movies. (That is if there will be another Batman movie made.) This movie is definitely Oscar-worthy.
