Land of the Lost (2009)
What were they thinking?
As a rule writing a negative movie review is something I don't usually participate in ,because frankly any moron can be critical about someone else's work,and we already have too many of those. However when a movie drops down to a level below moronic,below idiocy,even below imbecilic,then something must be said! I can't believe millions of dollars was spent making this piece of garbage...the jokes are not funny,the acting is reaching for something in every scene and they just move on like nothing happened...Like we the audience are so brain dead that we wouldn't know any better. Don't bring your kids to this unless its your wish to lower their I.Q.! The only people who should see this are people in a coma! (No offense if your loved one is in this condition)But then they wouldn't know any difference anyway.On second thought maybe they would...don't let them see it either! I sure hope the ending was good, I wouldn't know because I walked out. Will Ferrell is better than this,Hollywood is better than this(well apparently not),but you are better than this. Rent it if you must,but this is a waste of a box office ticket.

Do you enjoy every stereotype being made fun of?...well this can be fun for you.
Yes its Comedy and a Satire,however its disgusting and in very poor taste.
Recommended for all of those who never got past 6th grade,and some in public office.
Funniest Comedy Of All Time? If this is the best we can do,then God Save Us All!
Peaceful Warrior (2006)
Truly The Best Movie Of The Year
I read the book back in the mid '80s and at that time there was much I did not understand fully,I may have thought I did however as the last 20 years have bloomed in my life I know that my views were clouded by what I thought I knew rather than the experiences and revelations which come to a life consciously lived.
That is what this movie is all about,breaking free from all the misconceptions we have and living in the moment,a moment that is rich with all the things we think are missing and in actuality are present in every heartbeat,so close and in our face that most of us miss it.
Its what Socrates calls being asleep while walking around living our lives and missing the fullness of life which surrounds us completely.
I saw this movie then re-read the book and while I would recommend the book over the Movie,if you go into the theater with a mind willing to see something new about yourself,as opposed to being a critic,then it is possible to come away with a new prospective about your place in this world.
Of course letting go of what we call mind would be even better.
If anyone has ever read "The Art Of War" by Sun Tzu then you know what the Peaceful Warrior concept is all about. The greatest warrior of all is one who has resolved the battle within oneself.
That is what this Movie is showing us and in my view the human race would be far better if all did this work.
Very few movies actually leave you with something to consider about how we run our lives in the way this one does and if you are willing to be open to these lessons,then you will get far more than the price of admission.
This one is worth 10 stars,for what it shows us about ourselves.
Final Destination 3 (2006)
Make This Your Final Destination!
Just saw this movie today and I found it to be a step above both of the prior films.
The Beginning Roller Coaster sequence is worth the price of admission if you like being scared half to death on a out of control theme park ride.
While in no way a film of substance on the philosophy of life and death it simply puts forth a simple idea and brings forth the gore stemming from the premise that "Death" is a force out to get us.
The characters are very much like people we all know and can identify with,you don't want to see them die.
Of Course considering the Title...we all know whats going to happen,but the trip getting us there is a ride we won't soon forget.
Bring your girlfriend or "special other" to this one and have some fun.
8 stars for sheer delight!
The Pink Panther (2006)
Pink Panther Where Are You?
If not for the performances of Kevin Kline,Emily Mortimer,and Beyonce Knowles this movie would be on the level of Remakes like "The Dukes Of Hazard", "Bewitched" and "The Mod Squad".
While technically this is a prequel its efforts to recreate the serious,yet subtle hilarious bumblings of Jacques Clouseau fall short in most every way.
While there are funny moments,if you go in expecting the same level as the original series of movies,you will be gravely disappointed.
As a Fan of Steve Martin I really did expect much more considering the legacy of the Pink Panther movies.
The Problem is that the humor seems to be reaching for a chuckle in an overt way,trying to make a gag seem funny when its just the same old thing done over again. A far cry from a Peter Sellers performance.
Of course I would never expect even Steve Martin to be able to pull off a Peter Sellers Impersonation,he seems to be trying to achieve that with the poor french accent and all the same encumbrances that the original character had.
Its not to say you can't have fun with this movie,just be sure to bring your kids or perhaps a bus-load of elementary school children who will without doubt laugh all through this movie,then that would make it fun! Its about what I expected from today's mainstream cinema and if you never saw the original you wouldn't know any better so you just might like this mindless affair.
6 stars for overall performance.
