I went to the show last weekend with my nephew and niece and we saw "Zoom" with Tim Allen and Courtney Cox Arquette.
I thought it was really weird ... didn't really think it was one of Tim Allen's better films.

Haaahaha. I only watched 40 minutes of that movie and had to stop watching because I was bored out of my mind. I don't care to see how it ends, but I'll probably eventually watch the rest anyway. I'm weird when it comes to not finishing movies

I couldn't tell you what the movie was about if my life depended on it.

Maybe I'm just slow

It's the high schoolers that speak with rich vocabulary, isn't it

The Insider

10/10

Started off a little slow but picked up about 20 minues in. Russell Crowe and Al Pacino are amazing in this film. Crowe's performance as a regular yet flawed man under a great amount of pressure was very subtle and effective. I'm surprised I didn't watch this sooner since I consider myself a Pacino and Crowe fan. Veteran actor Christopher Plummer was great here as well.

Swimming Pool

6.5/10

Was pretty good in the beginning, very good in the middle, and then ...

Brick 5/10

What?!
you're too kind. that was a terrible movie. it tried way too hard to be confusing about a relatively simple plot. kid goes looking for the person who killed his ex-girlfriend, and he finds him and the answer without any cool plot twists along the way. the crap about "oooh, what is this brick?" or "pregnant? whose baby?!?!?" (didn't she sleep with every male character in that movie?) wasn't enough to hold my interest. there are ways to do that sort of dialogue and make it work. i get that they were trying to use a certain style while breaking away from the archetypical characters such as semi-crooked detectives and con men by making the characters high school students. just no. this was boring. the total lack of extras, classes, ordinary things you'd see around a high school, whatever surrealism they were aiming for by putting a regular table lamp in the pin's car, none of it worked. or it did work, but only to add to the movie's pretentiousness.

but iwb, you say, you like david mamet! american buffalo had what, three characters in it? they all talk at each other and they all talk at the same time! mamet has the con men, the semi-crooked detectives. everyone is lying most of the time, and the plot is confusing because no one tells you anything (or because what they did tell you, you're slowly finding out was a lie). the dialogue is a part of it, not just a device used to make a boring plot look cool.

besides (i mentioned it elsewhere), whoever wrote brick really didn't seem so convinced that they'd pulled it off, otherwise they wouldn't have felt the need to include that scene at the end where whatshisface and whatsherface re-cap and explain everything that you just saw.

1/10

I forgot about my V review.

yeah, it's a solid 8/10.

if it wasn't as slow in the middle it would've been higher.

Best movie of '06 so far

The Descent - 4/10

How did I get talked into seeing this? I'm really indifferent towards this movie. I don't have much to say about it. I heard the UK ending was much better than the edited US version. I just watched it on YouTube and it still doesn't change my opinion on the flick. Flaky plot, lame characters and it's full of your standard scare scenes. Meh.

But it's being compared to all of the modern day horror classics like Saw! Saw 2! and the yet-to-be-released Saw 3!11!one
