Man Of The Year with Robin Williams. Confused film making. The few times Williams gets to riff he's his usual self. Otherwise plodding with an awkward conspiracy angle that fails.

Kill Bill Vol.I I dislike Tarantino's stuff and film violence in general but since this is so over the top I give it a grudging pass. I'll watch Vol. II later but there better be a pay off.


Volume One was better than Volume Two.

Agreed.
Well that's not encouraging.

The photography in Kill Bill was excellent.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Good, and better than the first one, IF you ignore everything you know about The Hobbit.

Well, the changes bothered me. I guess that makes me a bit of a Tolkien geek.

I was like

:squint:

that never happened... and

:brow:

that's just wrong! and then

:D

ooh, Legolas, cool! And also

:awe: :love:

Evangeline Lilly

(and I said "athelas" before she did)

And there's also the fact that even if they're making 3 really long movies, they're still not showing enough from the book, or everything happens too fast.

But overall I DID still like it.

To be fair, if they made The Hobbit faithful to the book it would be one 120 minute musical, and that would be pressing it. (Seriously, those guys busted out into song at the drop of a hat.) That they are attempting to squeeze three movies out of it tells me that they are adding a lot of outside material.

Also, while I liked The Hobbit, I have always wondered how they would make a "serious" LotR-style movie out of it. The first book was essentially a children's book while the second was a much more involved work.

Movies were a lot more depraved in the '70s.

Nobody makes sex comedies anymore either.

Something happened to us, and I don't think it was entirely healthy.

I actually preferred part II of Kill Bill. Although it plagues both films, a lot of the acting in part I is just awful.

Prisoners.

Not amazing but certainly worth watching.

The Lorax (2012). What an incredible piece of human waste. Plastic selling nature with stupid songs every five minutes. Simply dreadful.

All of the Dr Seuss movie adaptions are dreadful. I turned off Horton when they all started serenading each other. Jim Carrey's Grinch was the only one I've been able to watch.

So I take it you weren't a fan of The Land Before Time II through XIII?

All I can say is, Michael Tavera got paid, dammit.

He's borderline with me. Most of his films are unwatchable. Truman Show is OK because he isn't playing his usual over-the-top character. I thought he was well-cast for the Grinch and the Riddler. He even did a good job in Man On The Moon, although that's one difficult to watch actor playing another.

The Number 23 was AWESOME!

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was AWESOME!

The Majestic was great!
Kill Bill Vol.2 A bit long but ok. Carradine in an unusually talkative role.

I Am Legend One ending is clearly superior than the other.

Beau Geste (1939) I never understood why Gary Cooper was ever considered a good actor. Fine flick of colonial derring-do in North Africa.

This is definitely a kids movie.

The Goonies is funny and I'm sure an adult can enjoy it, but it's a total kids movie. It's kind of painful for me to watch because the dialog is so forced in some moments.

The Goonies was the first Spielberg summer blockbuster during which I told myself, "I'm just too old for this stuff." I was 15. Meenwhile, I still thought Pee Wee's Big Adventure was completely awesome.

Haha! My son used to be able to talk/laugh like him.

BTW, you're never too old for Goonies or Sandlot!

Probably Brook's second best movie (I rank Young Frankenstein as the best).
Brooks is at his best when he has a real vision and a great cast that can sell his (often really bad) jokes.


Robin Hood : Men in Tights
This was so bad we didn't bother finishing it. A full half hour into it and only a few groaners. I wonder how this would have worked with a better cast. This was even worse than Spaceballs.

His earlier great movies relied on great Jewish humor.--The later bad movies are just bad jewish jokes.

Men in Tights has to be watched immediately after the Kevin Costner Robin Hood in order to be appreciated.

Then again, it's got Cary Elwes and Patrick Stewart, so it's automatically awesome.

The star of the movie is Anna, ignore Elsa.

It was cool (get it? ;) )
