Without Will Ferrell, this one would have bombed. Some bad characters, some annoying characters, some bad AND annoying characters.


I thought it was really funny and enjoyed it a lot actually.

Children of Men - 8/10

Holy crap single-take... the cinematography is awesome in this film and deserve a viewing just to see the unbelievable urban war scene at the end. It's pretty depressing though. Dystopian post-apocalyptic movies exposing humanity's total lack of empathy can be a bit of a downer.

Reno 911: Miami

8/10

I heard people didnt enjoy the movie as much as the show, but I personally thought it was great. No gaps in laughter from me.

It was good, but it was so short! Had to be under 80 minutes.

finally saw Transformers, great action, super cheesey but it was what it was...
7/10

with that said i couldnt help but notice the homo-erotic undertones between Sam and Bumblebee, it doesnt relly become apparent until later in the movie, but there's a big clue early on

MILD SPOILERS

when Sam picks up Hottie in Bumblebee, it starts playing all these sexy songs like Sexual Healing and what not, and i think "oh cool, he's trying to hook a brotha up" but then when the car stalls it keeps playing that stuff knowing she's not amused and get's her to leave. at first i thought he was just cock-blocking but it was so he can be alone with sam

all through the movie their lust for each other begins to build. when Bumblebee get's captured, he looks longingly at Sam.

after an explosion and Hottie grabs for Sams hand, sam wants nothing to do for it and starts looking for Bumbleebee

there's a few other instances as well, and i'm not saying there's anything wrong with Sam wanting to sample Bumblebees rack and pinion steering, just a subtle nuance of the movie i thought should be pointed out

The movie just fails in comparison to something like Super Troopers, one of the best movies ever for me.

The Lake House - 1.5/10

Easily the second-worst movie I've ever seen in my entire life. :-P

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry - 4/10

Jessica Biel ;-D

Rest of the movie :-t

I knew it would be bad, but not that bad. If it wasn't for Jessica Biel being half naked in a few scenes, it would have been a 2 or 3.

It's a shame because Adam Sandler and Kevin James are both very funny.

To me the concept just doesn't seem like it could make a whole movie. There are a few good jokes to be had with the idea, but not enough to fill 2 hours.

Jessica Biel = Yummy

I'm WAAAAY behind in my movie watching (I consider myself a movie geek), but I finally saw Black Snake Moan. 7/10 ;-D

Not a perfect flick, but darn entertaining.

Sam Jackson ;-D

Christina Ricci ;-D

Timberlake :-S - Not a horrible performance, but nothing great either.
