The Number 23 (2007)
This is without a doubt, the most amazing movie Iv'e rested my eyes on. Ever since the truth leaked from my television screen, I have been hooked on this movie since the day I rented it at the movie store.
Jim Carrey's role in this movie was nothing short of fantastic, even in a thriller like this. Thoughts pertaining to his acting skills almost instantly crossed my mind when I saw his bloodied head on the case of the movie. How could Jim Carrey possibly do a good job in a serious thriller like this? I thought. I must say I was deeply surprised at his fantastic job. Change of genre for him must of been horribly difficult, but he pulled it off so well I wasn't surprised I was convinced.
Along with the acting, the plot line was simply breathtaking. They could of used something other than a damn number as the possessor of the mind, but it blended with the story fairly well, and I can't complain.
Everything about this great movie seems to control my eyesight, as it makes me concentrate on the movement of this storyline, and how the characters progress and react to the current events. Definite recommendation.
This Game made Shadow of the Colossus good
ICO, though the name sounds boring, don't judge a book by it's cover. A short game, only took me around 4 and a half hours to play, but it is very addicting. I remember staying up until 4 in the morning playing this game. Sleep was trying to overcome me, but the game kind of had a spell, or a charm. Keeping me awake until I finished it. I eventually did and was in tears at the ending. I love that ending. So much. Has to be the best ending ever recorded in gaming history. Not much to expect from a low budget, very unknown game.
Spend breathtaking hours dragging Yorda around a huge castle, fighting off Shadow Demons on the way. May seem like such a simple and pointless game, but actually indulge yourself into the game, and get involved with it. The cover isn't really appealing, but pick it up, and examine it carefully. You see a young boy, holding a wooden stick, and a young, good-looking girl in the background beside him.
What more can you ask? I say. It has to be good if it has anything to do with Shadow of the Colossus, which basically continues the goodness of this game. Well I admit it, the game does not all at seem appealing, but you should play it for at least a half an hour then you will see what I am getting at. Most people don't like these kind of games, but if you like to solve countless puzzles, then this is the game for you. Even I had a lot of hard times completing this game, and I had the online guide! It may seem like one of those Final Fantasy games, but it is really hard. Harder than Shadow of the Colossus, surprisingly.
The only type of enemies you encounter in this game are Shadow Demons, called from the Gates of Hell. There are many different types of these things, but do not fret. They are nothing if you get the Mace, or the Queen's Sword. They are actually quite annoying, and get in the way of everything. I still remember dying every time one of them caught Yorda, and I didn't know which button to press to get her out of the black gate, and you would die every time. Plus, I usually don't save since there are many random and pointless save points in the form of Love Seats,so I have to start and do a certain puzzle again and again and again. It was very frustrating. Then there are mistakes like the press of the wrong button, or a jump too far, which really affects you during the course of the game. Sometimes I could see myself throwing my controller at the television and taking out the disc and ripping it to shreds. But decided against it since it wasn't my game, it is my cousins. So if you ever played this game. Take a DEEP breath, and tell yourself it is just a game, and begin again. Or stop, don't play it for the whole day, and the next day, begin anew.
Definitely a game you should play. If you ever played Shadow of the Colossus, this is a game for you, if you like puzzles, this is a game for you. If you like good story lines, this is a game for you. If you like good games, THIS IS THE GAME FOR YOU!
Dragon Quest 8, a story about a traveling company to find the evil jest Dhoulmages, who stole the Scepter from the Kingdom of Trodain. With the scepter's power, he turned the King of Trodain into a small, green creature, and his only daughter, Medea, into a beautiful horse. Along with those powers, came thorns that covered the castle with it's tight grasp, turning everyone to stone, except for the King, Medea, and another person, whose name is chosen by the gamer, I will refer to him as HERO, as the guide mentions him.
I have not finished this game yet, for it is very long, and you must take breath-taking hours looking for all the treasure chests in this huge world, so vast it will take you many hours to explore all of it, while the first 3/4 of the game is on foot, or by sea. The rest you fly on a bird, and certain locations come to your disposal. I love the graphics in this game also. Not many people like these graphics, but I happen to love these cartoon graphics, which I believe it to make the gamer more involved with it, and there is a little bit of humor in it. Which leads me to my favorite character, Angelo. Strong with the sword, and strong with the heart. Very smart I believe, and very nice.
But the thing I love the most out of this amazing game, is the music. I have not heard such beautiful music in my life in any game, not even Shadow of the Colossus fulfills this goal. Especially the World Map. That song just gives me goosebumps whenever I listen to it, and sometimes I find myself just staring into space, looking at my wall, listening to it and doing nothing. Another song that really gives me goosebumps is the song when you are on the ship. That is my favorite song in the game, and i could listen to it all day long and easily fall asleep to it. Since I haven't finished the game yet, I will eventually like another song.
This has got to be the funniest movie I have ever seen in my life. The best movie ever made by the Monty Python series. I have never laughed so hard at a movie ever! Like think about it, the acting was bad, they had the most random parts out of nowhere, and it has the most retarded ending ever in my movie history. Reading that might make you think that I hate the movie, but that is exactly why it is a funny and well known movie to everyone.
Nothing really happens in the movie other than the Knights of the Round Table looking for the Holy Grail, while in the process random things happen to throw you off and make you laugh until you are on the ground in pain. I still remember that night at my cousins, after drinking 10 cans of coke and I would not stop laughing. "We are the knights that say NI" was the funniest part in the whole movie and made me laugh the hardest. Like whats so random is why NI? Such as random word, but that's why that is funny. Shotly after I watched the movie I said NI to everyone that passed, and it scared people. 10/10.
Fainaru fantajî IX (2000)
Final Fantasy just turned into a Child's Game.
The only reason I got this game was because I wanted to say that I had it, but I played it anyway. I thought the story wasn't that well done at all at the beginning, but then it has a twisting turn out of no where near the end of the 3rd disc. The characters were very weird and corny, and the way they acted was weird. Take Zidane for example. He is such a pervert it makes his character a mindless freak who is in love with Garnet, who is the only normal character and most civilized character in the game, and she even has her moments.
The enemies in the game were very well done, but yet again, weird. Run around in some grassy areas for a while and discover that there are such things as "Friendly Enemies". Like why? What's the point. Most people on these forums will complain that they lead you to the strongest enemy in the game, which is a large blob of colours? At they optional bosses in the game are not even that hard, take Hades for example. Everyone tells me that is an amazingly hard boss, yet I fight him at level 60 and beat him in one try. Like come on, only 60,000 HP? Too easy. The side quests in the game are very stupid to. It has a great deal to do with chocobos out of nowhere, and the Chocobo Hot and Cold game? Like what is up with that? Sounds more like a children's game than a teenager game. I can also say that about the moogles, which the game is concentrated on a lot. Moogles are cute, but get annoying after a while if you find one in every world, and they all look the same. Why can't we just save normally, and what's the point of the moogles? Very annoying.
Now to add onto that, the Strategy Guide is TERRIBLE. Now I am not talking about the game now, and it's NOT the games fault that the guide is bad, but I must put this in my explanation. Type in "Final Fantasy IX Official Strategy Guide comments" and you will see what I mean. "Go to play online.com to find out how to beat this boss!" Or, "Want to know where to find a secret item? Playonline will explain how!" Well that's just weird. At the time they were just promoting their new site, which now houses the Final Fantasy XI site. I got this game quite a short time ago, and now the site does not even exist for me to find out how to get the certain things. So I am doomed to finding it all out by myself. That isn't the point of strategy guides.
My favorite character has to be Garnet. She is the only normal person in the game as I mentioned earlier. Other people have either a tail, and rat's face, red hair that covers their face, 100 pounds of armor, ears popping out of their small head, a pointed hat and 2 yellow eyes, and the list could continue. Quina has to be the Number 1 weirdest character ever created in a Final Fantasy. Eats anything, that thing, not even human.
6/10, worst Final Fantasy ever made. Usually in Final Fantasy's I something touches me and I get some amazing feedback in my heart from the game, but this game does not fulfill that goal.
Very Well Done!
I do not have much to say of this movie, but let me just say it is definitely an amazing movie and captures all of the people's attention in the form of pirating. I believe this movie to be very well done and exciting, definitely better than the first one, and more realistic. Definitely does not ruin the first one, like most sequels do. This just adds on to the creativity of the first one, and makes the series more popular than it ever was. Deifnatly worth the 3 year wait between 1 and 2, and I still remember to this day how I felt when I found out the truth of that amazing ending, that left me hanging off the edge of a cliff, gasping for air no longer in my lungs because I froze on the spot. But I am not going to spoil anything for people who haven't seen it who eventually will. I have explained everything else about these series in my 1st Pirates comment so I am not going to get into too much detail. But the movie was defiantly funnier than the first one, and the acting was a bit better since the actors have a more general idea on who their character is, and what he/she does, and their personality. Take Jack Sparrow for example, everyone loves him dearly because he a good actor, and apparently looks "hot" as the role. He seems like the hero to everyone doesn't he? But really he wants everything for himself and wants everything to go his way, even if he does seem like the hero. Don't underestimate him! 10/10
Good Plot, Good Actors, Amazing Movie
I must say when I first watched this movie, I loved it, I loved the plot, music, characters, and the actors. The actors are so good in this movie that I surprised that they were even acting, and pretending to be like the people in the movie. Johnny Depp really did his best in this one, and I was not even the smallest surprised that he did an amazing job in this movie. Seriously, if they picked anyone else for the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, then I would not like this movie, and no one else would like it. Everyone I know believes so, and no one yet has stepped up and said something about changing the actor for Captain Jack Sparrow.
The writers did an amazing job with the script, but obviously Johnny Depp did a little improv while acting this role. Very good improv at that. All the other actors where good too, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightly, and Geoffory Rush, which happened to also be one of my favorite characters in the movie also. Oh yes, the role of Barbossa really knocked me in the head. His acting was almost as good as Johnny Depp's. The way he looked and talked just freaked the hell out of me and I just wanted to scream my lungs out.
The special effects in this movie also got me too, the way the Skeletons look when the moon rises really got me. The special effects people did an amazing job at that, as well as the Make-Up people. Putting Make-Up on Johnny must of been tiring for both him and the people, as his role had a lot to do with that. I for one would not like it at all, I can't even handle 2 days of it.
10/10, most people would agree that this movie is very stunning, and well done. The actors play their roles as if they themselves are that person, and all the other people who made this film possible, I bow down to your success pf getting into half of the worlds hearts.
One of the Best Films in the history of LOTR
The one thing about this movie that really catches my attention, is the special effects. THe director really did everything that he could, and what is needed in this movie, and made a movie from the book spectacular, and beyond stunning. This is my favorite Lord of the Rings movie of them all, and I have watched the 3 hour Extended version of the movie about 10 times over, and watched the extras on the DVD, which takes about an hour to complete. I must say I am one of those Lord of the Rings geek.
One of the best movies of all time, and the best movie I have seen in all my time. The actors are so good with their roles it's unbelievable that they were acting, and not actually feeling it themselves, because I definitely did. This movie also housed a lot of my Favorite Actors, and they picked perfect people for all of their roles. Elijah Wood played an excellent role of Frodo Baggins, his character being the small, lost Hobbit in the movie, wandering with his one friend Sam Gamgee, who was also very perfect for his role. They made the elves look so real I wondered sometimes if they were born with those ears or not. The fight scenes in the movie also blew me away, especially the last one.
This has to be the only movie from the book where I liked the movie better than the book, and I am not a person like that. I believe you get more involved with the movie than the book, and that is not normal for me. I am glad they haven't ruined the book with the movie, like a lot of directors do. Take a look at something like that Da Vinci Code, or Eragon, and you will see what I mean. The book is very good though, but also very long.
I can easily just sit through 3 hours of this movie whenever I want to, and watch it over and over again at my pleasure, I know few people like me who can do that, and a lot of people watch a movie once and throw it away and never watch it again. I try to convince them to continue to watch it, but no one listens. The same thing happens with King Kong, I can watch that over and over again and never get tired of it.
Definite 10 out of 10.
The Ring Two (2005)
Loved it then, Hate it now
I loved the Ring 1, it was one of my favorite horror movie a long time ago. It had a good story, good plot, good people, and it was very scary. Left he on the edge of my living room couch. But the Ring 2 did not give me this feeling, and I was very angry that I wasted a good amount of money that could of been used for a greater good, and a waste of my time watching it.
The directors decided to get lazy with this movie I believe, and wanted to get more money off this sequel, which the whole idea of the movie is Samara going around and killing random, weird people. Whereas Thr Ring actually had a plot to it, and it's not just the girl doing random stuff. Thank god that they aren't making a 3rd one, to destroy the already destroyed movies.
It really does make me mad that directors always do this to really good movies, I could name a whole list of movies that have been ruined because of their sequels, this is one of them. Do not watch it, if you are thinking about watching this, watch the first one, but not the second one, or be ready for some terrible and big disappointment. This movie definitely deserves a 1 out of 10, at the best.
King Kong (2005)
I could almost Feel Kong's Breath Through the Movie
Let me say through all of my experience of watching Movies, King Kong has to be one of the best of all. Surprisingly I like it, since it is a remake and I usually don't like remakes because they are making them too much now, and can't think up of their own ideas.
Peter Jackson's best Movie in my opinion, he had a great deal of other really good movies, but nothing compared to this. Most people say it is too long of a movie, but to me, it is 3 hours of excitement, and amazing special effects, even if the beginning is a little bit slow.
The thing I love the most about this film is the music, sometimes it just wants to make me cry my eyes out, like one look at Ann Darrow, and that background music comes on, and I just want to weep for the Saddest Role Naomi Watts has ever played in her entire career, I believe. And the music at the end of the movie, in New York, just wont get out of my head and it will leave a spot in my mind forever.
The only thing that I could criticize, is that the amount of time spent on the Island, versus the amount of time spent in New York. In my opinion, they spent too much time in New York, and less time on Skull island. I would prefer it to be vice versa, and for the Island to be the main setting in the movie, but don't get me wrong, I loved the scenes in New York, especially the ending. But the movie would of definitely been better with what I explained.
10/10, does not deserve lower.
