I Am Legend. 6/10, mostly for the effects and that shot of Will Smith working out shirtless and sweaty. Actually, the movie was decent in terms of showing the utter loneliness that Robert felt, and what that can do to the humain brain. But in the last third of the movie, it all unravelled and just struck me as another stupid Hollywood apocalyptic film.

The Other Boleyn Girl


reviews have been mixed

so my expectations were not very high



I have seen this story done so many times
with different actors and spins

this one was better than I expected

7/10

Bana did good work, had the right presence.

I think they took some liberties with the story/facts.

Scarlett Johansson was excellent.

Portman was good. But is she 4' 9" or something?

She did not fit the part for me.

The Shining

INCREDIBLE. This is top 10 material. I saw it for the first time just now, and I adore it. The mansion looks incredible, the dialogue is great, and the film has such atmosphere. Not a lot of violence either until the last half hour. The Simpsons of course did an incredible parody of it, and that kept the film from being very frightening for me. The only flaw of the film: the ending was completely illogical. You have a fucking pickaxe and you're in a hedge maze. JUST CUT IT DOWN. Damn, what an idiot. I love Jack Nicholson, BTW; I actually found him to be uproariously funny much of the time. It helps that his face already makes him look like he's insane most of the time.

10/10

Are you kidding? It would take more than a few seconds to hack through one of those walls, and by that time the person you're looking for could run away and be somewhere else. The only thing that would help you is to climb on top of the maze, but Nicholson wasn't in much of a mental state to try anything logical.

I saw it last night and felt the same way.

The role seemed far too big for her.

True, he probably wasn't in a place to think logically at that point, but I figured his survival instinct would eventually kick in and he'd attempt to either cut through or climb over the hedge maze.

But hey, the shot of him frozen was pretty damn funny.

Lance's Mom will wear that costume for an extra $2.95. It probably hasn't been cleaned in a while, but you could say the same thing about her, so you might be better off that way.

I wouldn't say she's unclean. I mean, she does spend most of her time in the bath after all.

Lance's Mom will let YOU wear the suit and give her a right hook to the face for the same $2.95.

Terminator I. 9/10

I've only seen parts 2 (one of the best movie sequels) and 3 (yawn) before, and I heard good things about this one. Not necessarily a fan of "Mr Universum" but he works in this role (and I prefer him as the villain). Much like Alien(s), a scary vision of the future, a very cool looking cyborg and probably the best usage of time travel issues next to Back to the future. I liked how, as opposed to part II, Linda Hamilton was more voulnerable this time.

No Country For Old Men

Masterful acting, cinematography, suspense, the ambiguous ending made me scratch my head but I was cool with it. Not that I pretended to figure it out but I was so blown away by the preceeding action, I almost didn't care. That and I was working on a nice buzz. Cheladas

After only one viewing, I'd give it 8 to 8.5/10

3:10 to Yuma

Christian Bale, Russell Crowe, Western, sounds like a winner
Probably exactly what I expected.

after only one viweing, 7 to 7.5/10
