7/10

Not Eastwoods best work, but still good.
Favourite bits.......

When he says the woman from the mayors office is going to put on a show with a shetland pony. :-D

And:
"Here's a seven point suppository"
"What did you say?"
"I said stick it in your a__"

Next up........... Magnum Force (again :-D )


Magnum Force
8.5/10

Quote from my g/f..........." I have work to do, but I can't stop watching this" :-D ;-D

The film-makers try and make Harry seem a little more sympathetic, giving him friends and a not-so-sexy girlfriend. Also making him weaponless in the climactic scene.
But this film is very very entertaining.

Good acting from Hal Holbrook as a snivelling and hate-filled Lt. Briggs. One of those movie bad guys that is "hate at first sight".

Favourite parts:

Having a pimp in full 1970s pimp regalia doing a stereotypical "b___ where's my money?" act before it was a cliche.

The car chase scene.

And:

"If the rest of you could shoot like those guys, I wouldn't care if the whole department was queer"

Next up............Dirty Harry (again)
(Spolier Alert - The ranking will probably be 10/10).


The greatest movie of all time..............
Dirty Harry
10/10

It's like the movie that everyone has tried to copy 40,000,000,000 times but failed.
So gritty and unique and authentic in it's delivery.
With the greatest performance from an actor playing a bad-guy ever. (So authentic that he supposedly struggled to find work for a time after this).
The music might seem a bit dated compared to the crap, I mean music they have in movies nowadays, but it is really effective in building the suspense.

Favourite parts

The final showdown between Scorpio and Harry. You buy that Harry is so furious at Scorpio that he would endanger that kids life just to blow Scorpios head off. And then when he venomously spits "Well do you ya................ punk" Classic. :-L

The chase through the stadium. So old-school with some weird camera angles, and then the end of the scene is pure gold. ;-D

Foiling a bank robbery while eating a hot dog.

The villian wanting $100,000 cracked me up, also Harry worrying about a $29 pair of pants.

If you haven't seen this, go rent it NOW NOW NOW. ;-D ;-D ;-D

the number 23 5/10....

not great and i feel like it was trying to be more complex then it really was, but it was kind of entertaining on the "i wonder if anything like this can be true" aspect.

Dog Day Afternoon - 8/10. I really didn't like Pacino's partner in this (Fredo in the Godfathers), but besides that this is a pretty sweet movie. Like most of Pacino's movie from this time period, he absolutely owned.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

Blows away every other superhero/comic movie ever done, with the possible exception of Batman Begins (I'd put them both fairly closer together).

A little light on the action, but the backstory had to be set and it was set exceptionally well. Would be nice to see a balls to the wall type of flick for a sequel.


Also, very much looking forward to the "Avenger Initiative".


it's no Sin City...i enjoyed it quite a bit though. Robert Downey Jr did a great job

8/10

P.S. I Love You. Labored through this as the wife rented it and watched it. Just awful. 2/10. The 2 is for the two attractive women in the film. Bad dialogue -- only an occasional good joke or two. As chick flicks go this is the one to avoid.

HA HA
Why don't you tell us what Made of Honor is like? :-D


Sweeney Todd - 5/10
I'm a big Tim Burton/Johnny Depp fan and this disappointed.
The singing was incomprehensible and when you put all of the weird parts together it just didn't work.
Casting fumbled this one too b/c the main 3 minor characters were all from Harry Potter and you thought that Peter Pettigrew and Severus had just walked on to the wrong set.

LOL @ Mookie

I saw P.S. I Love You about a week ago. I didn't think it was that bad. Definitely a major chick flick but I've seen worse. Both Swank and Butler were very good. Harry Connick Jr. made me laugh. The one that really got me we was the sister and her weird outbursts. That was an odd performance. I will watch anything with Hilary Swank at least once. Wouldn't recommend it here obviously :-D and definitely wouldn't watch it again.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
