Scoop (2006)

#100


The idea of Scarlett Johansson acting like Woody Allen is anything but sexy; but the story is interesting even if Hugh Jackman seemed a little lost in this unusual role for him.

The Amateurs (2005)
I can't help but like Bridges in anything he does. This is a cheaply made movie that had average results. Its outcome should have been more impressive with such an ensemble cast.

Step Up (2006)
I refused to see this one until my wife, who loves dance movies, convinced me. I must say, while it's nothing special, I did enjoy the dancing and the chemistry of the leads is obvious. The likability of the actors is what makes this watchable.

Wow, this is a difficult movie to critique. I think Soderbergh is so cool, with his experimentations. Here he enlisted non-actors for all the roles, using very little scripted dialogue.

The editing helps keep this film interesting as we are literally watching one conversation with one woman nearly the entire film. The dialogue could have been so much better with such a clever idea.

I thought this was going to more of a modern/hip take on the story, with the way the cool trailer previewed it. I found it to be rather dull in the end.

Invincible (2006)
Wahlberg is still trying hard to make us like him and take him seriously.
I like the story (based on a true story), but it's so watered-down and wholly unoriginal in its filmmaking.

Still I'm a sucker for the underdog!

Harsh Times (2005)
A frustrating movie that's tough to get into, considering how unlikable the leads are.
A different type of role for Bale that never seems to be put to good use.
But it is pretty bad ass

This film will make you fall in love with Anne Hathaway and Emilie Blunt, will solidify that granite of a career of Meryl Streep, and make you realize Adrian Grenier will probably not have a career outside of "Entourage" for awhile.

A disappointing follow-up to the similar "Waking Life". I felt the actors' talents weren't used properly but the creative animation is still worth the watch, even if the story isn't entirely worthy.

One of Christopher Guest's weaker films but it is still filled with clever moments and a nice smack to the face of award-chasers and film industry. It's easy to do, but doesn't get done enough.

Jared Hess's follow-up to 'Napoleon Dyamite' was less than stellar; but Jack Black can certainly entertain under any circumstance. His two musical numbers are what put this into the top 50.

With such a great cast and concept this should have an amazing film; but somehow it failed to ignite enough interest and I pushed myself to watch the entire thing. I rank it this high because of Blanchett's acting and the direction from Soderbergh.
