Default Movie reviews...

By “Barry Yosser Norman�

What is up with Hollywood this summer?


Spiderman 2, complete disappointment, do not believe the reviews.

Two
Brothers, took my daughter to this one, had to put up with Guy Pearce
(is he still in neighbors) annoying brit accent.

King Arthur, haven’t
seen it yet, but overheard some yank couple say “didn’t like
it�…�couldn’t understand what they were saying!�…now we are lead to
believe that Arthur was some tribal, braveheart savage that fought the
bloody Romans???? What!

Mystic River, good acting, but left me utterly
depressed after watching it!

Hmmmm, I wonder what else is
there……………�Cat women�…..arrrrgh!

9-11. Not everyone's cup of tea by any standard, but worth
the money.

Dodgeball Could not stop laughing. Anyone who has seen
this film will never forget the dodge a wrench dodge a ball scene.


Shrek 2 Excellent film, one you will watch 100 times & still
find something new you have never seen before.

I've heard that Spiderman 2 and The Bourne Supremacy are both excellent.

Depends on each person's taste/opinion ... but I found:

I,
Robot ... saw it last week ... imho a FANTASTIC MOVIE ... read the book
version years ago; movie changed the plot somewhat, but a FANTASTIC sci-
fi movie, imho.

Bourne Supremacy-> saw it yesterday. Hi-octane action,
one of the lead characters from the last movie got killed off, bound to
be a third movie ... "Bourne to die" ... *lol*

I am wondering if there
will be a good movie to see next week ...

    :D RLMFAO :D

You should
review movies for a living Patrick.

I haven't seen any new movies
except for 9/11. The last scene was priceless, I'd have paid $20 to see
it.

My wife and I have been going though old movie classics. Igby Goes
Down (no, not a porno ;) ), Amelie, Harley Davidson and the Marlboro
man.

Also, caught Sexy Beast on the IFC channel the other night. Never
heard of it before but it was a 9/10 (along the lines of Lock Stock...).
It had Ben Kingsley and Ray Winstone in it. Cool flick.

Right now we're
going through the Penn and Teller Bullsh*t DVD box set along with Six
Feet Under Series 2 and Dead Like Me.

I'm thinking I have way too much
time on my hands :D

I liked Dodgeball and King Arthur...I didn't really like
Anchorman, I thought there were only like two funny parts.

Perhaps the problem was
it was too much bones and not enough meat. It concentrated on the man,
how hard it is for him to give up so much of his life to help others
who don't appreciate it anyway. His life suffers to stop others
suffering. It was complicated and layered and in true keeping with the
comic books, I think anyone who went there for an "Independance Day"
type rollercoaster action adventure would be disapointed. Instead of
making an disposable action movie they made a movie with a plot and
substance, people who just want load noises and car chases would be
disappointed, and you are. I bet you liked Starsky and Hutch and first
night though

I also found Spider Man 2 to be utter crap. I was BORED, and no, not
even the special effects were enough to keep me interested.

The
Stepford Wives was also crap, though there was a few humorous lines. I
don't think Nicole's terribly good at comedy. But she was great in Cold
Mountain, which if you haven't seen yet you should see.

9/11 was
great... probably one of the better films I've seen this year.

I
probably won't go to the cinemas for a while... disappointed.
