very good bond film, one of the best

Posted : 8 years, 8 months ago on 4 November 2008 01:44 (A review of GoldenEye)

Goldenye which marks the first role of Pierce Brosnan as James as well as Judi Dench as M and Samantha Bond as moneypenny. is great re-start to the series since Timothy Dalton had left the role. During the 6 and a half years(between films) it seemed like bond would never return, with the cold war ending and technology just coming about in a big way, the death of long-time writer for the series Richard Maibuam and title Designer Maurice Binder died. Then actors such as Liam Neeson, Mel Gibson, Hugh Grant,Sam Niel, and Lambert Wilson were all considered for the role of James Bond. Faith was restored in all fans minds that bond would live on like the end of all the movies say. With having had offered Pirece Brosnan the role of The Living Daylights( which starred Timothy dalton as bond).Who had to turn down the role due to his contract for the TV show Remming Steele. when the show ended the producers casted Brosnan for the role. Goldeneye which is first of the two movies directed by Martin Campbell who has currently saved the series twice (casino Royale being the second).was asked to take on the challenge. Goldeneye is possibly one of the best bond movies out there with a solid script, wounderful direction, and sure-fire cast which includes, Gotfried John,Izzabella Scorupco, Joe Don Baker,Robbie Colraine,Allan Cumming, and Famke Janssen in the possibly the best role of her carerr Goldeneye is Bond Magic.

a blond, a truck and a switchblade

Posted : 8 years, 10 months ago on 3 September 2008 06:41 (A review of Showgirls)

ShowGirls which is meant to show us what living in Las Vegas and being a showgirl is really like. Is more of a Melo-dramtic look at vegas and life itself and what happens when your a pretty stripper.Elizabeth Berkley plays Nomi Malone a ditsy blonde with a tragic past (which is never really revealed).Everyone who even gets a glance and Nomi suddenly is awestruck with the fact that she is gorgeous. which needless to say is what the whole movie is about. When Nomi gets noticed by Cristal Connors(Gina Gershon), Nomi becomes a ShowGirl and over a short length of time begins to hate Cristal.then Nomi has the feeling she has to show up Cristal. showgirls is a dramatic yet, funny film that Co-stars Kyle Maclachlan, Robert Davi and Glenn plummer.

very lame and not very funny

Posted : 8 years, 11 months ago on 26 August 2008 10:51 (A review of Tropic Thunder)

Tropic thunder (like said in other reviews) opens with 4 fake trailers that is supposed to give us a little something before the movie starts. which pretty much what the whole movie is like throughout. a series of events that hardly have a point to them and are not very funny. although the acting is superb from the entire cast which includes Jack Black (who's roles lately have been somewhat different than his other films in the past).Robert Downey Jr.(Iron Man), and the leading man (who also directed and wrote the script ) Ben Stiller. there really is no goal for any of the main characters throughout this horrible attempt at a comedy. which leads us to what the movie is really like a series of events that have no major purpose other than to try and make us laugh but do not. the only thing i have to positively say about this movie is that it has a great soundtrack that sometimes doesn't fit or is to overbearing to the dialogue that is currently being said throughout the movie. if your looking for something hilarious check out Pineapple Express well worth the money.

UFC meets the O.C.

Posted : 8 years, 11 months ago on 14 August 2008 05:37 (A review of Never Back Down)

Never Back Down is the story of Jake Taylor(Sean Faris, who has no relation to actress Anna Faris, and looks like a cross between Christian Bale and Tom Cruise) who has a tragic past with his father dying in a car accident that could have been prevented. Things get worse when Baja Miller(Amber Heard(pineapple express) who has quite the resume` at a young age)invites jake to a party at Ryan Mcarthy's(Cam Diganget(Who's your caddy)) place. only to find out that he was baited there only to get heavily beaten. This is when Jake meets Max Cooperman (Evan Peters(An American Crime)) who introduces him to 365 degree fighting and Jean Roqua (Dijmon Hounsou(Blood Diamond))who teaches him to control his anger and the outcome of any fight. Never Back Down in an interesting look at the UFC fighting style which someday might take over boxing.

another fun filled adventure

Posted : 8 years, 11 months ago on 7 August 2008 11:42 (A review of Pineapple Express)

Pineapple express is the latest comedic misadventure produced by Judd Apatow and directed by David Gordon Green. Who take us on yet another fun filled Drug-induced adventure that stars Seth Rogen(who also writes the screenplay and story)as Dale Denton. a public servant who's job is to give out subpoenas to people who have not yet shown up to court and is also a stoner. The story gets interesting when we meet Saul Silver(James Franco in a surprisingly powerful performance as a stoner/dealer). after a visit with Saul, Dale inadvertently witnesses a murder In which Ted Jones (Gary Cole) and corrupt police officer Carol (Rosie Perez)brutally kill an asian man. does more plot come to play. when Dale runs back to saul's place and then does the does the one-liners seem to really roll out of these two pals. Don't miss Pineapple Express it's one comedy to keep you rolling on all fours

don't waste your time wait for it to come on tv

Posted : 8 years, 11 months ago on 7 August 2008 10:30 (A review of The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor)

The highly anticipated 3rd mummy movie starts off with a good introduction explaining how the Dragon Emperor wound up in Egypt in the first place. with a not all bad narration by Isabella Leong(Lin in the movie and Alex O' Connell's(Luke Ford who is new to film and television) love interest).But as the movie goes you'll realize that there are several plot holes and way to much action to keep you interested throughout this very uninteresting movie which reminds me of how bad Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was. Tomb of the Dragon emperor tries to be epic but fails horrifically. With Rachel Wies gone Maria Bello fills in to play Rick's(Brendan Fraser) wife Evelyn who is all to charming and ready for the inevitable battle between the O'Connell's and the Dragon Emperor(Jet Li) who is all to animated throughout this 2-hour hunk of junk. I was personally disappointed with this movie and was waiting for this since i was twelve. the very first time i went to universal studios and watch them advertise the hell out of it. I was excited to hear that Rob Cohen(The fast and the Furious) was Directing.But, i should have known better seeing after seeing Cohen's Filmography on Imdb.com. and any curious fans of the mummy should check out the original mummy movie with Boris Karloff it's well worth the time.

Escape from new york with a twist

Posted : 8 years, 11 months ago on 7 August 2008 05:56 (A review of Doomsday)

Think Escape From New York meets V for Vendetta with a Twist. Neil Marshall's(the Descent)Doomsday Starts off with an opening reminiscent of John Carpenter's Escape from New York. with all of Scotland and part of England enclosed in what the Parliament calls "the wall" which was built over a period of 20 years while a blockade was held in place to keep the people who were infected with the Reeper Virus out. also like Escape from New york except there were criminals and exiles in carpenter's flick. THe rules are simple no one in no one out.this is all explained with Malcolm McDowell's excellent narration within the first 30 minutes. Rhona Mitra Plays Major Eden Sinclair(who gives Jenifer Garner a run for her money) who was recruited by Prime Minister John Hatcher to find Dr. Marcus Kane(Malcolm McDowell) who was said to have made a cure for the virus. within 46 hours which is really like 43 after everything is said and done. to cure the people and save the world. Doomsday is definately worth a look at
