"So your hobby is inflicting pain?"
"Oh, no, no. That's... that's not just a hobby. Inflicting pain is a crucial part of my true calling."
I knew this was gonna be bad, but i watched it anyway hoping it would be funny bad, and it really was. There was a lot of unintentional laugh out loud moments here. This movie was all over the place. From an overly cheesy loving family to a laughably dark and ridicules villain. Tyler Perry, who i had only previously seen in his short Star Trek cameo, was just as bad of an actor as everyone says he is. His line delivery was so flat and boring it was almost painful to watch at times. But at least he was not as bad as the guy portraying his partner in the film, Edward Burns. An actor so bland i instantly forget him in every movie i see him in. I seriously thought this was the first movie i had seen this guy in but then i looked at his Imdb profile and noticed i had seen a lot of the movies he's been in, but don't remember any of the characters he has played. He looked like an even blander Donnie Wahlberg. The highlight of the movie was by far Matthew Fox as the villain. His over the top performance was a joy to watch. He went all out here and it was glorious. I would say the movie is worth it just for him, but you can probably just look up his scenes on Youtube.
The direction of the film was horrible. Rob Cohen has really hit a new low point in his terrible career here. All the action scenes are so poorly shot and edited it's impossible to see what is happening most of the time. Especially the end fight scene between Matthew Fox and Madea. The shaky cam in that scene was the worst i have ever seen. I'm dead serious here. I have never seen worse shaky cam in a fight scene than here. It was like rob gave a toddler with ADD the camera, fed him nothing but pure sugar, put him in a bouncy house and then told him to film the scene. It was ridicules. Jean Reno is also in the film for a really small role that made the end plot twist obvious from the second he stepped on screen. He was also awful in the film. If you wan't a good laugh, the get some friends and some beers and enjoy this film. But if you want a serious action thriller, stay far, far away.
"We can't be friends anymore. When we get together, bad things happen and people get hurt."
"Yeah, but that's the point! It's funny!"
A Hangover movie without any hangovers in it. That makes sense. Anyway, this was definitely my least favorite of the franchise. The second movie might have repeated all of the first film's jokes, but at least it had jokes. It seemed like they were trying to make some sort of weird action heist movie here and forgot that it was supposed to be a comedy. For long periods of time there is no jokes at all. And when they did remember to put in jokes they were mostly duds. Sure, Zach Galifianakis is still pretty funny as Alan, but that was about it. Bradley Cooper did not look like he wanted to be in this film at all now that he is an Academy Award nominated actor and Ed Helms was given nothing to do. Most of the film is focused on Ken Jeong's incredibly annoying character, Mr. Chow. He was fine in his little role in the first film, but here he was unbearable. I could not stand him. John Goodman was also a wasted cameo that got nothing to do. I still love the first Hangover movie, but i would not mind forgetting the sequels.
"Did mom get lipstick all over me?"
"Yeah, but it looks like you've been making out."
This was one of the few Will Ferrell movies i had not yet seen. Apart from Wayne's World and The Blues Brothers i have not really been a fan of the SNL movies that have come out so i have been putting this film off for a while. It was better than i expected, but still not great. Ferrell was good here, but i feel like he was holding back a little. Maybe that's because he was not yet a star while making this film. Chris Kattan did a fine job as the other lead. I have never been a big fan of him, but he didn't bother me as much here. He did do some of his annoying over the top slapstick, but in most scenes he was saved by Ferrell's great comedic timing. Overall this was a fun, but forgettable film. I can see why no one lists it among their favorite Will Ferrell movies.
"You're not a cop anymore."
"Do you think that makes me less dangerous, or more dangerous?"
Samuel L. Jackson was perfect casting for a reboot of Shaft which makes it such a shame that this was such a mediocre movie. It could have been a great franchise for him. It's not all bad though, like i said Sam is great as Shaft. Christian Bale and Jeffrey Wright are also both great as the bad guys. It might be worth watching for those two alone. But apart from that there is nothing special or memorable about this.
"I've never done a woman before."
"Oh, you shouldn't think of her as being a woman. No, that would be a mistake."
This was an alright action movie. It's nice to see someone like Gina Carano get the lead in an action movie. Usually it's these skinny models like Milla Jovovich or Zoe Saldana that get cast. I never believe for a second they can beat up anyone. This girl however looks like she knows how to kick ass. I hope she get's more action movie roles. We need a good female action hero in movies. Steven Soderbergh did a decent job directing the flick, but if i didn't already know it was him directing i never would have noticed. There was nothing special about it. The supporting cast was fantastic and i think that is mainly what Soderbergh brought to the film. All these great actors would have never been a part of this film if not for him. Overall this was a good, but forgettable action movie. Hopefully the start of a career for Gina Carano.
"Well, what if there is no tomorrow? There wasn't one today."
After watching so many just bad-to-mediocre movies lately i just had to watch a movie i knew were great. I love this movie. It's definitely one of my all time favorites. Bill Murray is at the top of his game here. This has to be his best movie and role. There really isn't anything i can say about this film that has not been said a million times before so i'm not gonna go on about it. It's a classic and if you have not seen it yet, you really need to.
"So baby's your nickname?"
"No. Baby's my real name. My parents argue all the time. Couldn't agree on what to call me!"
I love cheesy martial arts movies from the 70's and 80's so when i saw this was on Netflix i just had to check it out. Mostly this was just a big Bloodsport knock off without the great fight scenes and cool characters. This film had it's funny bad moments, but mostly it was just king of boring. The fights were nothing interesting or memorable. The characters were all pretty much lame versions of the main Bloodsport characters. The problem with that is Don 'The Dragon' Wilson is no Van Damme, Michael Shaner is no Donald Gibb and Cris Aguilar is no Bolo Yeung. The ending had a ridicules, but hilarious twist though that made up for a boring final fight. It also did one more thing that i loved about 80's action movies. The second the bad guy is dead, the movie is over. No need to waste the viewers time explaining what happened after that. The film makers know we don't care about that. This movie is really only for fans. Other people will only be bored by this.
"The guy I just saved is a cop. That's not the usual way I do things, but sometimes you gotta abandon your principles and do what's right."
Out of the three movies released earlier this year starring old action heroes, this was my favorite. While A Good Day to Die Hard took a big steaming pile of shit all over that franchise, and The Last Stand just kind of bored me for the most of it, i actually thought this one was kind of fun. It was definitely the one that reminded me the most of the classic 80's and 90's action movies i grew up on. Filled with the same old cliches and stereo types that i love. Stallone looked very tired and bored for the most of it, but he did a fine job with the material he was given. Him chemistry with Sung Kang, who is great in the Fast and Furious movies, was also good. Their jokes about each other felt very stale and forced, but other than that it was fine. I also liked seeing Christian Slater in a bigger movie again. Even if it was a very small role. He deserves better than the direct to video crap he usually stars in these days. Overall, this was a good action film, but nothing memorable.
"Am I an arsehole? Do I look like an arsehole?"
This was just as dull as i remembered it. It has some cool car chase scenes and Timothy Olyphant is great in him minor role, but apart from that there is nothing good about this film. This is one of Nicolas Cage's most miscast poles ever. I like him in action movies like Con Air and Face/Off, but here i did not buy him at all. He just seemed so bored in this role as well and brought nothing to it. Not that the role was very exciting to begin with. Angelina Jolie was also just awful here. I have never really been a fan of here, but she was especially bad here. This is also the least sexy she has ever looked. Those blonde dreads made her look like one of those crack whores that try to shop lift at my job all the time. Who thought those were a good idea? But the rest of the cast did a good job. I already mentioned Olyphant, but this film also had a lot of other great names on it's cast list. Giovanni Ribisi, Robert Duvall, Delroy Lindo and Chi McBride to name a few. But that was not enough to save this snooze fest.
"So how's my protégé?"
"Jeremy, believe it or not, is getting married!"
"What? What an idiot! What a loser! Good! Good! More for you and me."
I must have been in a really bad mood the first time i saw this because it was much better this time. I caught it on TV and decided to give it another try and really liked it this time. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson had a great chemistry and played off each other very well. This gives me a little more hope for The Internship.
"Need a hug?"
"We're not a hugging family."
As a life long fan of the Die Hard series this was a crushing disappointment. This is the first Die Hard film i not only just didn't like, but i hated this film. It was awful from beginning to end and at no point felt like a Die Hard movie. Say what you will about Die Hard 4, at least Bruce Willis looked like he cared about the film and really brought out his John McClane character, here he just don't give a shit. And why should he with a horrible script like this. This movie is more focused on his son and his CIA work than John himself. He is the sidekick in his own movie. That is something that should never happen in a fucking Die Hard movie. This felt more like they rewrote a script last minute to add in John McClane and change the title of the film to Die Hard to make a few extra bucks without giving a shit about the fans of the series.
They also went ahead and hired one of the worst hack directors in Hollywood for the film. John Moore has never directed anything remotely good and he sure as hell didn't plan on changing that here. The guy who played Jack McClane did a fine job, but i hated the character. He was just so bland and whiny. He made me miss Justin Long! And i have to get back to John McClane again. He is my favorite movie character of all time so i just have to complain a little more about the butchering of the character in this film. John has always been an asshole, but he has always been a likable, funny and sarcastic asshole. Here they completely misunderstood the character and just made him an asshole. It's like they tried to make him as unlikable as humanly possible.
He also seems to be able to take even more punishment than ever before without getting a single scratch on him. It's not until the last few scenes of the film he actually looks really beat up. The rating of the movie is also a fucking lie. It's not an R rated movie, it's a PG-13 movie with a few extra cuss words ADR'd in. It's like they were shooting for a PG-13 movie and then realized that fans didn't like that the last time and thought that would help. It just made it worse because it's so obviously something that they decided last fucking minute. Another thing i have to talk about is the villains of the film. The Die Hard movie has always had iconic villains played by great actors, here we have bland villains played by terrible actors. They could not even get that right.
I was gonna give this a 2/10, but the more i think about it, the more i hate it and can't think of a single reason it deserves anything better than a 1/10. It's by far the WORST of the Die Hard movie by a mile. I'm never gonna consider this one of the Die Hard movies. I have a ton of copies of every single other Die Hard movie on everything from laser disc to VHS to Blu-Ray, but i will never buy this. If it comes in any future Die Hard box set i will buy i'm gonna trow it away. It does not deserve to stand next to the rest of the movies in this classic action movie franchise. I'm gonna stop rambling on about how awful this was now, but i'm sure i could have gone on forever. This was a piece of shit. And that's being generous.
"To stop Nero, you alone must take command of your ship."

I'm planning to watch Star Trek Into Darkness within the next few days so i decided to rewatch this one again. This was a huge surprise for me the first time i saw it as i had never been a fan of Star Trek before. This is a great sci-fi action film. I hope the next one is just as good.
"I can eat the biscuits, but God made tigers carnivorous, so I must learn to catch fish. If I don't, I'm afraid his last meal would be a skinny vegetarian boy."
This movie was, well, amazing. I am not a religious man at all, so i didn't think i would like this film all that much. I was wrong. The visuals and the 3D are some of the best i have ever seen on film. Especially the 3D. After watching Iron Man 3 last week with it's incredibly bland and unnoticeable 3D, this was such a breath of fresh air that really made me believe that 3D can be used for greatness when used right and not just forced in to every single blockbuster released these days. The story and characters were also great here. The relationship between Pi and the tiger Richard Parker was really great. They managed to make it actually seem believable and not cheesy at all which is often a problem when doing human and animal relationships like that on film.
Ang Lee truly is a master director that definitely deserved his best director win at the Oscars. This should have won best picture over Argo as well. I loved Argo when i first saw it, but i'm already starting to forget that one. I think this film will stay in my mind for a long time. I just have to say it again, this was an amazing film and one of the best surprises i have had in a long time. It's movies like this that makes me feel like my 3D TV was not a waste of money. And one more thing, the soundtrack was also perfect. I bought it right away after watching the film. I can't remember the last time i did that.
"You ready for this?"
"Come on, man. Guns, murderers and crooked cops? I was made for this, bro."
Two terrible movies in one day. I was not really expecting much from either of these, but come on! At least the other Fast and Furious movies are cheesy fun. This was just boring for most of it. Paul Walker can NOT carry a movie by himself and Tyrese is no substitute for Vin Diesel.
"I had a partner! I would have taken a bullet for him! You I'm having a hard time not shooting!"
This is one of the worst buddy cops movies i have ever seen. Both the leads are very unlikable. Especially the incredibly racist and annoying Martin Lawrence character. The comedy was not funny, the action was boring and the villains was just bland and forgettable. Even Eric Roberts deserves better than this.
"I need to see some I.D."
"I'm not showing you any I.D."
"Well, I need to see something."
"How about the inside of an ambulance?"
I like this movie. It was not the movie i was expecting from the trailer though. It made it seem like an all out action film, but this is much more of a thriller. Tom Cruise did a good job as the title character, but he was nothing special here. This was not almong his best performances. I have never read the Jack Reacher books, so i didn't really care about how well Tom Cruise fit the character described in the book, so that has nothing to do with this. The rest of the cast were also all from good to great. Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, Robert Duvall and Jai Courtney were all good, but jesus christ Werner Herzog was fucking scary. Every time he was on screen i actually felt very uncomfortable because he was so menacing. I'm gonna have nightmares about that man. Just the way he stared at people is gonna be burnt in to my mind forever.
I don't like the fact that they just called the film Jack Reacher. I never liked it when movies are just named after their main character. They should have called it One Shot like the novel it's based on, or at least Jack Racher: One Shot. Anyway, that is just nitpicking. This was a good, but not great thriller. But it's worth checking out just for the horrible nightmares Werner Herzog will give you. Well, maybe that's a reason not to check it out after all...
"He'll kill you if he finds out!"
I liked this film. I don't get why it got so many bad reviews. It was a fun noir film. Sure, it was nothing special, but it was not bad. The cast all did pretty good jobs. Sean Penn was really fun as the villain and Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling was great as the two main good guys. Emma Stone was also hotter than ever before in this film and that is always a big plus. Overall, this was much better than expected.
"How do you sleep at night?"
"I don't drink coffee after 7."
Another year, another boring Statham film. I'm still a fan of the guy, but he really need to do something new now because even a fan like me is losing interest in him. This movie was just so bland and unoriginal. I can't even really call it an action movie. It barely has any action in it. It's just a couple of very short fight scenes and some short, dull shootouts. 90% of the film is just Parker looking for the crew. It was also way too long at 2 hours. This should have been an hour and a half at most. The whole Jennifer Lopez subplot, hell, even the entire character was really useless and should have been cut from the movie.
My guess is that the only reason it's in here is because Statham movies are performing less and less at the box office and she was there to try and get some more people to go see the film. She added nothing to it but an annoying character. Cutting her out of it would have made the film feel a lot tighter and not as dragged out as it did. Nick Nolte was also completely wasted here. His screen time has to be only 5 minuets total and he left the movie with no explanation after around 20 minutes in to the film.
The only good thing about the film is Michael Chiklis as the villain. I loved him on The Shield and it's good to see him get some movie roles. I just wish the films he picked would be better. Daniel Bernhardt also makes an appearance and even has a fight scene with Statham. That was pretty cool. I liked him in the Bloodsport sequels. But again, this is not a very good movie. This is just for hardcore Statham fans that need to watch everything he makes, everyone else can skip it. I really hope Hummingbird brings us something new from Statham. The trailer for it looks good and i love the writer of it so i'm excited.
"You're a real bastard, ya know that, Joe?"
"And then some."
This is a great 90's buddy action film. The writer-director duo of Shane Black and Tony Scott was a match made in action heaven. Add Bruce Willis as a John McClane type of character and you have an instant classic. I really do love this film. It's very underrated and it really should be more seen. Bruce really brings his A game here and even Damon Wayans is pretty damn good. The only thing i have to complain about is the villains. They are nothing memorable. You don't get a Hans Gruber in this film. Other than that it's great and i really wish there had been made some sequels to it. I want to know what happened to these characters.
"Who are you, man?"
"I'm the guy you don't fuck with."
I'm surprised at how much i liked this film. From the premise and trailer i thought it looked kind of boring. I don't really like these biking people either. But Michael Shannon's fantastic over the top performance as the villain really won me over. He was brilliant and by far the best part of the film. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was fine, but very bland. Not a very memorable character at all. Shannon on the other hand is gonna be hard to forget. He was this movie's savior.
"Did you really beat a suspect unconscious with a dead cat?"
"The cat wasn't dead."
This was surprisingly fun for a late Steven Seagal movie. This is probably his last watchable movie. It is mostly thanks to the supporting cast though. DMX was fine again just like in Cradle 2 the Grave, but he was pretty much playing the same character. The highlight was Michael Jai White as the bad guy. He was pretty much the reason i decided to watch this. He is always great. His fight scene with Seagal was a little disappointing though. I think the problem was that Seagal was just too old and slow for him. He really had to hold back and that was easy to see. Even if Seagal was doubled for half the fight scene.
From an amazing super hero movie, to a pretty terrible one. I have decided to watch all the X-Men movies again before The Wolverine comes out, and that means suffering through the bad ones as well. There are so many cringe worthy moments and speeches here. Every 2 minutes there is a speech, and none of them are good. Half of the characters from the previous movies are gone for most, if not the entire movie and replaced with really lame mutants like the guy who can hug people to death, fuzzy Frasier and bird boy played by Ben Foster in a wasted role. The Juggernaut is also really miscast with Vinnie Jones in the role spouting the worst like of the entire X-Men franchise. It's so bad i had to choose it for the quote for the review. While there is a lot to hate about the film, i did actually enjoy some parts of it. The scene with Professor X and Magneto talking with Phoenix at her house and what happens there i did like, but it was not a great scene. If Bryan Singer had directed it it could have been, but with a sub par hack director like Brett Ratner it's the best we could hope for.
"You're not a man. You're nothing more than a maniac. I'm not afraid of you. No politics here: just good old fashioned revenge!"
I loved this movie. I think i even liked it more than Iron Man 1. This had a much more interesting villain than just another guy in a bigger Iron Man suit. The Mandarin and the people he had working for him were very cool and menacing. Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce really brought their a game here as the main bad guys. It also gave the rest of the supporting cast more to do. Pepper Potts, James Rhodes, Happy Hogan and even Jarvis felt a lot more included in the main story this time. Pepper even got to kick a little ass in this film which i really liked to see. She was not just a damsel in distress this time.
This movie was also as funny as it was exciting probably thanks to the new writer and director, Shane Black. Jon Favreau did a great job with the first Iron Man, but the second one was very disappointing so i'm glad they got someone new to make this film. It was a brilliant choice as well. Shane has written so many great action movies in the past and his directorial debut, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, is one of my all time favorite movies. But back to this film again now.
The only thing that is keeping this from a perfect score for me is that it did feel like it was slowing down a lot at one point and kind of dragged on. It's not for a long period, but enough to keep it away from a perfect score. It's also not as good as The Avengers was, but i was not expecting that from it either.
"I guess God has a plan for all of us."
"God's a kid with an ant farm, lady. He's not planning anything."
This was better than i remembered, but still not a great film. Keanu Reeves is his usual boring self here and the film is just a little too long. The story itself was very good and i really liked the effects. Unlike a lot of movies from the early to mid 00's, they still hold up today. The best part of the movie comes at the very end though with Peter Stormare playing Satan himself. He was brilliant. Very creepy. I wish he was in the movie more.
"Always practicing, Cleric. Maybe that's why you're the best."
"Maybe I'm just better."
This was a cool, but ridicules movie. Christian Bale did a good job as usual, but he was about the only good think in the film. I was not in a very good mood while watching the film so that might have something to do with my enjoyment of it. Maybe i'll like it better another time.
"You fucked up my car."
"You fucked up my day off."
This is Arnold Schwarzenegger's big comeback movie and it's surprisingly mediocre. Even director Jee-woon Kim could make this script very exciting. The movie starts off really slow. When you are excited to finally watch an Arnold movie again, you want it to be action from beginning to end, not half a movie of boring exposition that you don't really care about. But when it finally get's to Arnold kicking ass the movie really picks up. He is definitely a bit rusty here, but there is still something about him that makes his action scenes cool to watch. I'm also pleasantly surprised that Johnny Knoxville is in it less than i expected. From all the trailers and posters that he was on i thought he was gonna be the annoying comedy sidekick for the entire film, but he's not. He really is a minor character here so i don't get why they promoted him being in the film so much. Is Johnny Knoxville that big of a star outside of the Jackass fans? Anyway, i hope Arnold's next big effort will be better. At least the co-star in that one is Stallone.
"You know all those dangerous mutants you hear about in the news? I'm the worst one."
I don't know which X-Men movie i like the best between this and First Class. They are both really great super hero movies. I love the scene is this film where the school get's invaded and Wolverine just goes berserk. It's such a fantastic scene. I hope we get another one like that in the new Wolverine movie. This movie also has Nightcrawler played by the great Alan Cumming. It's such a shame he never appeared in another X-Men film. He really was the stand out character here. And this probably has the best ending of any X-Men film so far as well. Not the scene in the presidents office, that was kind of cheesy, but the escape scene right before it. That was really good stuff.
"I already told you I don't know anything about any fucking setup; you can torture me all you want."
"Torture you? That's a good idea. I like that."
Before Django Unchained came out, this was still my favorite Tarantino film. The dialogue is just perfect from start to finish here. This really was a brilliant script. And all the actors here were fantastic as well. If it were up to me they would have all been nominated for Academy Awards. And as always with a Tarantino film, the music is awesome. Every time i'm done watching one of his films i have to find the soundtrack again and listen to it. So many classic songs. Stuck in the Middle With You will never be the same after this film.
This was a very bad, but fun action film. I usually don't like rappers trying to act, but i thought DMX did a fine job. He wasn't great or anything, but he was no 50 Cent. Jet Li kicked ass as usual and was of course the best part of the film. His fight scene with Mark Dacascos was very cool. One thing i really didn't like was Tom Arnold and Anthony Anderson. They both just really overdid it as the 'funny' sidekicks.
"Give me a name!"
"Weren't your parents supposed to do that?"
This is an underrated spoof movie. It's not up there with Airplane and Naked Gun, but it's still pretty funny. No one seems to talk about it anymore though. Emilio Estevez does a good job in the lead. He is pretty much doing the same shtick as his brother in the Hot Shots movies, but i like it. Samuel L. Jackson is great here though. He can be really funny when he want's to. If you like spoof movies, this is definitely one to check out.
I don't know why i keep watching this film. I really don't like it, yet i keep giving it a new chance when i spot it on TV. Thinking maybe it will be good this time. It can't be as bad as i remembered. It stars two of my favorite action stars. And every time i watch it again it get's no better. The plot is just so over the top god awful that i can't take it. I'm used to action movies having bad scripts, but this is beyond that. Especially with the plot twists (yes, there are several) at the end. And the movie takes itself so seriously too. As if everyone involved actually thought this was a good script. The only reason this is not getting just half a star from me is the chase scene an fight scene between Jason Statham and Jet Li. They were kind of cool, but just look them up on Youtube. This movie is not worth it.
"You're lookin' kinda hard there, ain't ya?"
"Hard not to."
Michael Jai White is one of the few non Asian people that still manages to make great martial arts movies these days. His films might be direct to video, but they sure are a hell of a lot better than the Hollywood efforts like Fighting and Never Back Down. This guy can really kick ass. I have been a fan of him ever since i first saw Spawn and Universal Soldier The Return. Not very good movies, but he stood out as a great fighter. I really wish his career had gone better than it did. He deserves better than to have his films just dumped straight to video. Especially when they are as good as this.
"Apple? What kind of name is that?"
"What's your name?"
"What kind of name is that?"
It's not a good start for a movie year when the first movie i have had any interest in seeing so far is a Funny or Die spoof biopic of Steve Jobs. This was an alright movie. It was very clear that it was not meant for theaters, or even DVD. The budget could not have been that great. I also feel like maybe it should not have been the length of an actual movie. Maybe just a 5-10 minute video like the usually do on Funny or Die. It had some funny moments, but a lot of the time just felt like filler. I never had any big laughs from the film either. Maybe only the scene where Steve Jobs and Bill Gates first meet. But that was all thanks to the great Jorge Garcia and Steve Wozniak in the background. Justing Long was also good as Jobs. This is probably his best acting job so far. I don't know if that is praise or an insult. One thing is for sure though, this is definitely better than what the Ashton Kutcher biopic will be. I saw one clip of that film and it looks awful.
The X-Men movie are probably my favorite super hero movie franchise. Wolverine is definitely my favorite super hero at least. Even if X-Men 3 and Origins were pretty bad, i still love the rest of the films and the two upcoming films in the franchise looks really good. This film still holds up even if it does have some really outdated CG moments. It's amazing how Hugh Jackman still looks exactly the same in the new Wolverine trailer as he does in this film.
"I wish Homer was my father."
"And I wish you didn't have the devil's curly hair."
I remember being kind of scared the first time i went to see this because the show was not nearly as funny as it used to be, but i thought the movie was a return to form for The Simpsons. I thought it was hilarious. How can the show be so mediocre now, but the movie so funny? Maybe they used an old script.
"I'm Sorry Wendy, but I don't trust anything that bleeds for five days and doesn't die."
I love this movie. South Park is a brilliant show and this movie is no exception. The only thing i don't like about the film is that my favorite character from the show, Randy, is not in it. That's a little disappointing.
"I want to tickle your bellybutton... from the inside."
I'm one of the people that still think Michael Cera is hilarious, even if he seems to play the same character over and over again. But most comedians do that so i don't get why everyone specifically get's on Cera's case about it. And in this movie he does play a very different character than he usually does. I like this movie. Cera is very good in it and so is the supporting cast. There are a lot of small roles from very funny people here. Zach Galifianakis, Steve Buscemi and Fred Willard are the highlights. This is an underrated comedy that more people should see.
"You're a strange bird, Dieter. A man tries to kill you and you want his job."
This was not as good as i remembered it to be. The actin was great, even from Steve Zahn. But the story was not very good. It was very slow and cliched at times. It is based on a true story though, so i guess they couldn't change it too much. I liked it, but i remember loving it the first time i saw it, so i guess maybe i had too high of expectations this time and got disappointed. I had not seen it since it came out so i could almost remember nothing from it.
"Where are you anyway?"
"I'm taking my brother on a fishing trip."
"Give him a big kiss for me, all right."
"Big kiss? I'll give him a big kick in the ass, that's what I'll give him!... i love you."
I love this movie. It is one of those gloriously cheesy action movies i grew up with and re-watched a million times on VHS. It is both cool and hilarious at the same time. Van Damme is brilliant here in his dual roles as twins that grew up across the world from each other and has never met or even knew about the other twin, yet still speaks with the same French accent and have the same body and martial arts skills. What? It makes total sense. This is a film that any fan of 80s and 90s action movie have to watch.
I caught this on TV and it was way better than i expected. It wasn't a masterpiece or anyhing, but with all the hate it get's everywhere i was expecting Chipmunk movies or Smurfs bad. This was actually a pretty fun kids movie that i probably would have loved as a kid. I'm also a sucker for any movie that involves lost animals finding their way home. Even if one of them is a creepy CG creature voiced by Bill Murray.
"The delivery will be made. My daughter will get over it. If I'm lucky, she'll see the light."
"Yeah, and if she's lucky, maybe you'll get hit by a truck."
I had forgotten how bad this movie actually is. The acting, story and directing is all terrible, but the worst of all is the music. The music in this movie is like a mix of soap opera music, porn music and awful techno music. It's just hilarious how out of place most of the music in this film is. It's one of the major reasons i kind of love this film. That and Jason Statham. He always kicks ass.
"You never forget kids like Emily, or Andy, but they forget you."
I was just channel surfing today and i ended up catching this one just as it was starting and i could not change the channel again until it ended. I had not plans of watching it, but i love it too much to turn it off when i catch it. It's such a brilliant movie.
"How odd that it should end this way for us after so many stimulating encounters. I almost regret it. Where shall I find a new adversary so close to my own level?"
"Try the local sewer."
This is a classic. There is no denying that. It's still one of the most fun movies i have ever seen, and probably the best adventure film of all time. Harrison Ford was born to play Indiana Jones. Apart from Bruce Willis as John McClane i have never seen a more perfect casting choice. If you have not seen Raiders of the Lost Ark yet, then you should only have one goal in life right now, and that is to watch Raiders of the Lost Ark.
I have been to busy with new Tomb Raider and Bioshock games to watch any movies lately. they are both just too much fun. But today i just felt like having a movie on in the background while doing some work on the computer and this is the perfect one for that. It's just silly fun without a story you have to follow too much to get. It's SpongeBob. You already know if you are gonna like it or not so there is no need for me to write anything else about it.
Unlike Semi Pro, this was a Will Ferrell movie i didn't like very much the first time i saw it, but i gave it another chance now and i thought it was very funny. The cast was great. Will Arnett and Amy Poehler were hilarious as the rival brother and sister team and the always lovely Jenna Fischer certainly didn't hurt the film either. Especially the outfit she has on at one point in the film. If you have seen it, you know what i'm talking about. This was much better than Semi Pro, but not among Will Ferrell's classics like Anchorman and Talladega Nights.
"It's easy to tell the difference between right and wrong. What's hard is choosing the wrong that's more right."
You would think a movie starring both Denzel Washington and Bruce Willis would be more exciting than this. This was just another mediocre terrorist movie with an obvious plot twist at the end. The performances were good though. Bruce was sleepwalking through it, but Denzel did a fine job. Annette Bening and Tony Shalhoub probably gave the best performances of the film. This is probably gonna be a film i will forget about soon, and considering no one really talks about this anymore i'm guessing i'm not alone there.
