This movie should never have been released...
The only reason I'm giving this movie a 2 instead of a 1 is because we got a glimpse of the Predator homeworld. I'm probably being too generous.
Whith all the great stories the comic book writers come up with about these two alien races it's just mind boggling how a project as this movie, costing millions of dollars, can get produced with what may be the most chaotic and plot-hole ridden script ever.
For a fan of the Aliens/Predator universe and someone who's red all the comics this whole movie feels like a huge punch in the face. There is no respect for the lore and no wish to drive the legend further. They could have done so much and accomplished so very little.
The movie is comparable to a poorly made Friday 13th and the like.
Creators of AVPR, be ashamed, be very ashamed.
Maybe the best Animated Super-Hero Movie
Marvel's Dr.strange may be a bit better than this but this is a great piece of work, the animation, all the references (which will only be confusing for all the viewers who don't read comics, although that's their loss, thanks for putting them in ;) and the voices are superb.
DC went where Marvel didn't dare to and made something a bit more adult and focused mainly on characters that aren't the big shots, which is really great because there is just so many Batman/Superman shows/movies I can take before I see some of the fantastic but lesser known characters get some screen time.
I'm only left wondering why they only made it 75 mins when there's enough loose threads here to make a full series. Seriously DC, when you make something this good, you don't hold back on at least 15 mins more you cheapskates. ;)
Bottom line, a milestone in super-hero animation and something every fan of cartoons, comics or super-heroes should watch. Let's just pray this is a glimpse of the quality that is too come and that the future films will have tighter stories.
Bowling for Columbine (2002)
All Americans need to see this movie
Michael Moore shows you why he thinks the murder rate in the USA is abnormally high. Having lived in the U.S. and watched the news there I do see the point, but I think he fails to point out some important issues regarding African-Americans and gun-death. Michael Moore is right that in that he is just a working class guy with no proper education, it shows. But still, all, especially Americans, need to see this movie and explore the insanity of the private gun trade. Turning away from this movie is turning away from the truth!
Dante's Peak (1997)
WARNING! This movie is a disease!
Everything that can be done wrong in a disaster movie is done so here. This movie has so many unrealistic elements you could cry. How about a pick-up on fire truck driving through killer hot lava? Or how about two small kids driving a big four wheel drive truck up a mountain where airborne ash makes visibility zero? And I just love how time is eliminated as a factor here, sure, they talk about not having time, but I guess there's always time for hugging, running after dogs and collecting old photographs. Nevermind the volcano erupting. Even the effects aren't that good. Model dams with tapwater just aren't as scary as real ones. Pierce Brosnan has kept his James Bondish skill of always being able to get out of a though situation and is most likely the toughest actionhero-geologist ever. This movie is a catastrophe! I can't say it loud enough. Do not waste your time, see Volcano instead, it will provide what Dante's Peak falsely promises. If you see both, you can see the clearest example I can think of how to and how not to make a movie about a volcano.
Meet Joe Black (1998)
It could have been a good movie...
This movie has great actors, looks good and is based on an interesting idea, unfortunately, that's not all it takes to make a good movie. The movie fails to go in depth on anything, one should think that with a movie lasting almost three hours you'd have plenty of time to do that. The characters in this movie are too superficial and death is too nice at best, personally I think he's ridiculous, he's romantisized to death. (Please excuse the pun, I couldn't help myself.) Also, I have to wonder how death,as he behaves like autistic person in periods of the movie, suddenly becomes quite brilliant and "with it" at the end. The movie doesn't really have a climax either, it's all very nice and predictable, very, very Hollywoodish. I gather this is a pure money making scheme and not made to upset anyone who is regarded as would be audience.
In short, a very lame movie unless you're hooked on love stories.
Enemy Mine (1985)
It's a lot more exciting than you'd think!
At first when I saw this movie on the shelf in the video store I figured it was just another monster movie, but since it was science-fiction I had to see it. I just have to see all movies I come across in the genre. At first I started making fun of some of the effects ( Just having been spoiled by Lost in Space and The Matrix. ) and thought that I would be amused more than amazed by this movie. I was wrong, it was not long before I noticed that this movie went the opposite direction to the common monster movie image and the story was actually quite emotional and intelligent. It surprised me many times and held both me and my girlfriend in suspense right up until the very end. For anyone who is tired of macho kill-them-all science fiction movies, which most movies involving aliens are, this is definitively one to watch.
