Case 39

Bonus points for going a route that was unexpected and for some genuine creepiness at times
Major demerits for wasting a crap-ton of potential and having a generally poopy script

It had its laughs, but there was just a ton left to be desired. When you talk about recycling a plot, this pretty much took the cake. I understand not deviating from what works, but c'mon...

Pirates 4-5/10, meh. Too much special effects/not much plot/not much character development at all

Darren Aronofsky's latest film is about a severely emotionally repressed ballerina who progressively 'loses it' as she preps for the lead role in Swan Lake. I'm a big fan of his films (haven't seen The Fountain yet tho) and this one does not disappoint. The ending was a bit unclear and depending on what you think happens; it stretches beyond believable unless you view the ending as metaphorical and not literal. I would also have liked to have seen more screen time and development of the play director and Nina's mother, but it was all-around a pretty good flick.

More lesbo scenes between Portman and Kunis = better movie.

You mean Pirates of the Caribbean right? Because I don't think anyone watched Pirates for plot or character development.

That's what I meant, but maybe I should have clarified :-b

More suspense/thriller than horror I thought, bit still had some pretty horrifying scenes. Will keep you on the edge of your seat for sure

Srsly? I'd heard such meh things about it. And it has Timothy Olyphant. The guy's named after a LotR creature, fcs.

Dare I put it back on a list?

Late to the party, but to defend Timothy Olyphant - he was awesome and worth rooting for in Deadwood; and pretty darn good in Justified - a better writer for Justified would likely propel his notoriety.

Oh! And don't forget "The Girl Next Door" where he played a pimp!

9/10, but not nearly as good? So Into the Wild must be a 14/10? :-? ;-)

kab21 wrote: Suckerpunch (8/10) - I disagree with the previous review of this movie. I thought the camera work/angles were excellent as well as the sets/costumes. It is a little hard to follow but individually the scenes are very well done and if you were able to pay attention then the whole movie makes sense when she discovers the fifth part of the plan.


So given the differing opinions, I decided to watch the 2:31 trailer and I think I understand why some love it and some don't. The first 1:15 with the Led Zeppelin song playing is awesome; she's crazy in a mental institution, etc. The remaining 1:16 is, well, not awesome. She's on a mystical quest in her mind and - uh...I don't even know what else because I got so bored I stopped paying attention. So I guess there are those who would love the first half and those who would love the 2nd half.

The best of Wess Anderson and George Clooney. Hiliarious and the kids will enjoy it even if they don't understand it.

George Clooney's best movie was an animation voice over? 8-o

Seriously, I think his "best work" might be Three Kings - at least as far as entertainment goes.
