Always Will (2006)
interesting plot, needed a lot more
Without comparing this too much to the first Butterfly Effect, the storyline was what made me watch this time waster. Always will is about as good as the 2nd Butterfly Effect.
The acting in Always will was passable at best, Baglini didn't seem to do anything with his lines. Nor did any of the other actors.
A dug up capsule of students school items is the ridiculous item that allows Will to travel to times in the past and change them. In The B E Kutcher remembers parts in the past that have been blocked because they are memories best forgotten, with more tragic consequences when the events are changed.
The storyline of Always Will is interesting, the movie needed decent acting and a better idea of how he could change his life. See Back to the Future or any number of time travel movies for something better.
Alone in the Dark (2005)
not so bad
Having watched Bloodrayne before this by the same director I was expecting the same rubbish here. From the many bad reviews I was seeing this to see how bad it could be. Why Ultraviolet ( a vampire flick like Bloodrayne) isn't also rated as badly as Alone in the Dark can only be because of the hot lead actor. Ultraviolet is so much worse than Alone in the Dark.
The story was simple to follow, the acting at most times decent. Reid really didn't suit her role though.
This is still your standard action movie. I have seen much worse.
House of the Dead will be on my list as another movie to see how bad it could be. This movie I enjoyed more than the latest Seagal and Van Damme movies. Passable save the world type movie.
More of Sawyer's past
Sawyer hitting the boar at the start and the boar getting revenge later on by knocking Sawyer to the ground from behind added some amusement to this episode.
Sawyer's past is revealed as he runs into an old friend who he threatened to kill after a job gone wrong (guest star Patrick) but he has some vital information on the man Sawyer has been hunting, another con man like himself.
Charlie also goes wild with his own attack on Ethan.
A nice fill in ep focusing on Sawyer's past through more flashbacks and his personal grudge against a boar who he believes is stalking him.
Miss Potter (2006)
well written tale
This movie drew me in from the start with its wonderful music and the main star Renée Zellweger. From then I knew this was going to be a movie well worth my time, Miss Potter was delightful to watch.
The rabbit's quick blink after she entered the carriage near the start thought I was seeing things.
The three well known stars in this film were excellent, the acting and Miss Potter's elegant white horse drawn carriage (what else),were well suited for this 1900's time period.
Having read many of her books will make this movie all the more fun, though of course this is not necessary. Whether there is any truth here, we are not given the 'based on a true stroy' line at the start so maybe not.
A really enchanting tale, recommended.
Smokin' Aces (2006)
average mob movie
The plot and the previews of this movie made it look like a must see. Several assassins with their target a magician/entertainer who has worked himself into the mob.
'Aces' has turned snitch, and there's a $1 million price on his head. Some of the most insane killers are after him, getting there first could be the problem.
This type of movie's pace was slow where it should have been quicker, on a knife edge.
The acting was decent, as I have said a few times Affleck really irritates me. Ben really has little acting skill. He comes off passably, barely, in a role he has played many times before, but with no improvement. His part is short though.
I expected more, as with many movies, there are no better scenes in the movie than the quick 2 minute trailer. The usual incredible twist at the end.
Wicked Little Things (2006)
yet another forgetful horror
One of the few reasons to make these pointlss films is to give some actors a chance to hopefully star in better films if they're acting is any good. The only good thing in this movie is the acting, the three female leads are better than most horror films like this. There's 2 scenes that may cause an unexpected jump.
Young small children are use to crawl through holes and lay dynamite to explode mines. When one does collapse causing a cave in all the children die, becoming zombies. The adults in the mine stay dead, no reasons are given as why the children become flesh eaters. When still alive they looked terrified before the cave in, innocent, so they must become enraged at any adult which exploited them int he mines (only reason that come to mind).
A mother and her 2 daughters move into a house near the mine, along with a land devoloper who wants to build a resort and another of those creepy people who seem to know exactly what's going on yet no one believes him.
Nothing new here, you're usual clichés, predictable, a lot of negatives for this film, very few positives.
The Red Skulls (2005)
fake, time waste
You can sometimes tell how bad a movie is from the first second. The introduction was not needed here to tell us that it was going to be gory.
The acting was... where was it. The fight scenes were fake, you could see how hard he wasn't hitting, more like a tap to the face, the kicks had as much force behind them as a feather duster.
The film was shaky, the acting lacking, the fight scenes were laughable.
There wasn't a highlight at all in this film, not one of the actors displayed the smallest amount of talent. The director had no idea what he was doing, the script should be burnt.
A complete waste of time, stay away from this garbage.
Man About Town (2006)
decent affleck flick
To start, Im a bit biased when it comes to Afflecks limited acting abilities. In Good Will Hunting he didn't come up to scratch, in Gigli he was a complete disaster, much like the entire Gigli movie, a train wreck.
Watching to see how much worse he could be I was impressed from the start, his voice and acting has improved but not by much. The movie is above average, hence my 6.
Affleck must have worked a fair bit to get his acting up to a decent level and it shows here. John Cleese had me amused from the start with a 3 minute lecture for his class (which was most likely scheduled for at least a 40 minute session), Romjin (Affleck's wife here) is his wife, making Ben's marriage and his almost workahlic lifestyle problematic.
Ben's character here is similar to other roles he has tried to play, where he thinks he's better than everyone around him (which is irritating), his manner is the same, his tone of voice doesn't change where required (if at all), nor does how he expresses his character which seems to be the same as other movies he's starred.
There is definitely an improvement in his acting for this film, I will be hoping for more in his next role.
Thelma & Louise (1991)
great once it picks up
The first 50 or so minutes I was about to find something else to do, giving this a 4 star.
With the introduction of Brad Pitt the movie becomes twice as good as the first rather dull part. We see the two female leads stick together through a strong bond of friendship, and Pitt helps things with his small role but believable slick cowboy/robber type.
As Thelma and Louise decide to really up the ante and go on a bit of a crime spree we can really see by bringing up their past how they have got to this stage, Thelma's no good husband and Louise's abuse in Texas, which of course explains the first crime she does.
To think I could have missed a great movie, something needed to be done to improve the first part. Even if you only watch the second part, the movie is a great thrill.
top 5 episode
This could be the best episode ever. There were a few ridiculous moments as usual, with the usual Kenny death (this time virtual), and Cartman's toilet display after 17 hours of battle of his number 2 (bad diarhea).
Having played a role playing game will enhance your enjoyment of this episode a lot, knowing just how long it takes to level a character, how they did it at 2xp per kill is definitely not recommended. To really get to high levels, you've got to have "No LIFE" as is said by the blizzard management who obviously do since they don't have accounts.
By far an episode that must be seen.
