Napoleon Dynamite (2004)
A boring movie about boring people with boring lives
When you have a movie about boring people with boring lives, the movie is going to be boring. Napolean Dynamite (Joe Heder) is stumbling through life, a geek who's only friend is a new student named Pedro. The movie has a few little plots, but no real plot. Pedro decides to run for president, but even in that he just mumbles through a speech and has Napolean do a dance. It has a few amusing moments but really it made me almost fall asleep. It's a movie you can borrow from a friend if you really feel the need. Joe Heder is pretty good I guess as Napolean, who's part is so dull you can't tell if he's doing a good job or not.
Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
Classic- No Doubt About It
Movie fun just don't get any better than this. Superstar Harrison Ford and "Animal House"'s Karen Allen star in one of the best Steven Spielberg movies ever. Taking place in 1936, Indiana Jones(Ford) is called in by the army to help find the Ark of the Covenent before the archeology crazed Nazis can find it and become invincible in the eve of WWII. Traveling to Egypt along with old flame Marion(Allen) he meets the Nazi's archaeologist: Belloq(Paul Freeman), an old rival of Jones. Incredible action sequences, great special effects for it's time, awesome acting, and a few of the most famous lines of all time are stuffed into this fantastic movie. An unforgettable cast includes Ford, Allen, Freeman, John-Ryhs Davies (Lord of the Rings), Denholm Elliot,Ronald Lacey, and Alfred Molina (Spiderman 2). The incredible, indescribable "Raiders" will leave you in awe forever. Overall-10/10.
Pretty Good- Not as Good as Jurassic Park, not as bad as JP3
Okay, the best Jurassic Park is obviously Jurassic Park. It was the most faithful to the fantastic Michael Critchton books, plus it was well done. As a sequel, The Lost World does just fine. Of course, I'm used to seeing horrible sequels all the time. Jeff Goldblum does a good job reprising his role as Ian Malcolm, and the newcomers of Julianne Moore and Vince Vaughn do well too. The story is a little unbelievable, though. After recently being replaced by his nephew as CEO of InGen, John Hammond(Richard Attenburough) reveals to Ian Malcolm(Goldblum) a site B: A place where dinosaurs run free. He sends him and his girlfriend, Sarah Harding(Moore), technology expert Eddie Carr(Richard Schiff) and photographer Nick Van Owen(Vaughn) to document the dinosaurs, while the official InGen team, led by Roland Tembo(Pete Postlethwaite), tries to capture the T. Rex and transport it to San Diego. As always, there is many bone-crunching deaths, the Special FX are excellent, but the story and plot fall a a bit short. Overall: 7/10
Pretty Good Representation of Booth
This movie was pretty good, it had pretty good acting and good sound editing. The movie really blended the calvary's search for John Wilkes Booth with Booth's argument/conversation with Herold. It was really believable, right down to the calvary's mustaches. The sets seemed right to the time and the sound of the assassination at the beginning just added to the feel of the move. The props were excellent also, with t the fake guns and swords, and the fire even blended itself into the tension filled scene with Booth and Herold. Overall, I would give this movie a nine out of ten.
I hope "Manhunt" is as good as this, just stretched out over 2 hours.
The Poseidon Adventure (2005)
Did the original justice
I saw the original 1972 Poseidon Adventure a couple years ago and I loved it. I saw this hoping that it just did the original justice. And I think it did. This version is about a cruise liner, the S.S. Poseidon, that has terrorists on board that intend to blow up the ship. They plant a bomb and the ship takes in too much water and it capsizes. Only a group survive and head to the bottom of the ship that is above water. The group is lead by Mike Rogo, a homeland security agent, and a terrorist that he captured. It includes many of the original characters in different names, and a couple added. The deaths in the movie are predictable and many of them are pretty weak, but overall, it updated a great movie.
