Edward Scissorhands (1990)
A beautiful, heartfelt masterpiece
Tim Burton has a wonderful imagination, and from this imagination sprang the idea for "Edward Scissorhands", a movie that is so heartfelt it might just reduce you to tears.
The story is about Edward, the creation of an old inventor who passed away before he could finish him, leaving Edward with scissors for hands. Edward remained in the mansion until he is found by Mrs. Boggs, a local woman who works for Avon and is attempting to find customers for her products. Feeling pity for Edward, she takes him back to her house in Suburbia where he becomes loved by the people and hated at the same time.
Johnny Depp does a wonderful job as Edward, playing this out casted character with much talent. Wionna Ryder plays Kim, the daughter of Mrs. Boggs whom Edward has an infatuation with. Also notable are Vincent Price, wonderful as the old inventor, and Anthony Michael Hall, Kim's jealous boyfriend. What makes the movie memorable, however, is the amazing score from none other than Danny Elfman. The music is so heartfelt and fits the mood of the movie so well that it is hard not to feel tears in your eyes while watching this amazing movie.
Give it a try.
When in Rome (2002)
Give it a Try
I'll admit, 'When in Rome' is my favorite "adult" Mary - Kate and Ashley movie next to 'Passpot to Paris'. Anyone who is familiar with the movies that they have written themselves knows the plot already: the girls go to a foreign country, meet two cute guys, have 'exciting adventures', and then go home after a couple of weeks.
In 'When in Rome', Mary - Kate and Ashley play Charli and Leila, two twins spending their summer as mail room interns in Rome for a fashion designer. There Charli meets Paolo, a native of Rome himself. Later on Leila meets Ryan, a New Yorker. Romance blossoms to a degree.
There is a surprising twist to the story, which doesn't seem average for a Mary - Kate and Ashley movie.
A person watching this film can have the most fun with it when they make jokes about the plot and try to have a good time watching it.
Give it a try.
Passport to Paris (1999)
One of their better...
Everyone knows that the Olsen twin movies from 1999 and on have had one basic plot: the girls go to a touristy foreign country, meet two hot guys, kiss them a couple of times, wear great fashions, have 'exciting adventures', and then go home after a couple of weeks.
Well, this is one of their better ones.
When I was little I loved Mary - Kate and Ashley, so of course I saw this movie. Basically, two twin girls named Mel and Ally Porter go to France to stay with their grandfather with their parents hoping that they'll pick up a little culture. After the first few days the girls almost get hit by those two 'hot Perisian boys', meet a supermodel, and manage to effect the way things are going on in their grandfather's house.
While Mary - Kate and Ashley's acting is so - so, the real talent comes from the other cast members. Brocker Way is excellent as Jean, Ashley's interest throughout the movie. Yvonne Scio and Matt Winston are also funny as Brigitte (the supermodel) and Jeremy, the man assigned by their grandfather to watch the girls.
It may be stupid, but if you've got nothing better to watch on the weekend then I suggest you give it a try.
AC/DC: Family Jewels (2005)
Perfect for AC/DC Fans or People Trying to Get into the Band
I'll be frank - I love AC/DC. They are an excellent band who held up well with two different singers.
The first DVD contains song videos back from the time of Bon Scott (either from 1974 - 1979 or 1975 - 1979). These show the performance of AC/DC's original front man before his death.
The second DVD contains song videos from the time of Brian Johnson (possibly from 1980 - sometime in the early 1990's). These show the performance of Brian Johnson, AC/DC's second front man who shows that he can hold Bon's spot very well.
As for the rest of the band, they're all there doing what they normally do best- rocking out hard.
And it's always a pleasure to see Angus Young go crazy on stage.
The School of Rock (2003)
For Those about to Rock, We Salute this Movie
What can I say? I'm a rockaholic. I eat, breath, and dream of classic rock and it's glory days. I listen to only rock radios, and every other morning I go on an AC/DC Binge. Rock is pure, and beautiful.
Unfortunately, it's not the only music out there.
Pop culture today sucks, putting it nicely. All that stuff out there is ruining the minds of people of today. For a little while it seems like rock disappeared, hiding underneath everything else, being disregarded by fans today.
Then 'School of Rock' came along.
Dewey Finn (played by Jack Black) is a bum who gets himself kicked out of his own band because of his unruly antics. To top this off, his substitute teacher roommate Ned and Ned's girlfriend Patti begin to nag Dewey for rent money. Dewey can't pay it off. After spending some time trying to sell his personal belongings, a phone call from a prestigious prep school looking for a substitute teacher catches Dewey's attention and he parades around as Ned, hoping to just walk in, let the kids do what they want, get some money, and be gone like nothing every happened.
Until he finds out that the class of fifth graders he has been assigned to teach are musically and vocally talented.
This sparks an idea off in Dewey's mind, thinking that he can turn his group of fifth graders into a rock group so that he can win 25,000 dollars in a contest called 'The Battle of the Bands'.
This is a wonderful, classic - rock fueled movie. Jack Black is hysterical as Dewey Finn. The children are all talented, particularly the ones on instruments and vocals.
If you want to love rock music, go watch this movie.
If not, then you'll have missed out on something great.
