Blast from the Past. 20060709. ha the ex boyfriend is the captain from Firefly! A great and funny movie, Walken steals his scenes, and Clueless girl is cute when she pouts, and the druggie/worshiper is amusing. Story is cute, sort of fun. good overall. a 6.

Young Master. 20060702. early Jackie Chan, some good kung-fu, not much plot, and what there is, is kind of confusing. oh you can follow it, but why bother? the dragon fight at the beginning is quite good. a 6

Fantasy Mission Force. 20060703. GREAT! B-Movie Weirdness! Nazis, Japs, Amazons, and post-Apocalypse Kung-Fu! One of the best B-movies, crazy kung-fu, WW2-ish, fantasy. Truly bizarre plot, nazis & Japanese attack ;? Canada? capture 4 generals - one from France, one from England, one from Africa, and one from America - Abraham Lincoln!, take them to Luxembourg! the army chooses guy captain to form a team to rescue them. including the escape artist guy, the explosives guy, the old west Elvis impersonator guy, his psycho girlfriend, weird asian Scottish highlander guy, and his sidekick dressing in roman armor. Jackie Chan is a thief the team runs into and he helps - some. they are captured by Amazons, escape a haunted house, and finally have a show down with the 70's car chariot riding Nazis & Japs. Most everyone dies. Jackie revenges them. bizarre and surreal plot, quite a bit of good kung-fu action. lots of B-movie sets, and costumes. just great! taking it for what it is
- a 9.

36 Crazy Fists. 20060703. fight choreography by Jackie Chan. 98 lb weakling, begs to join temple to learn kung-fu to avenge his father. he learns with amazing speed. tons and tons of long involved fights. he wins some he loses, he goes back for 1 week of training, he wins, gets new challenge, 1 month training, fights the big boss master, he wins, with help, the end. a 5

40 Year Old Virgin. 20060515. eh, lotta creepy embarrassing stuff,but some lovey romancey stuff, and just bit too accurate with some portrayals.

Shaun of the Dead. excellent funny movie. an 8

Underworld 2. 20060126. bloodiest movie ever. not most violent, but certainly most bloody. a good action adventure vampire werewolf amusement. a 6.x

Grand Canyon. (1991) VHS. X. a 5. a bit preachy, but excellent work from Kline, and steve martin, and danny glover was good, the teen boys were a bit over done. a nicely moralizing peace, with a pleasant end.

Light Sleeper (dafoe sarandon)(VHS) a 7. a bit slow, an interesting drug dealer story. very little action, more of a finding himself, sort of a reverse mid-life crisis. 40 yr old dealer suddenly may be out of the biz, and what to do? dafoe is good and the guy who can and is going to change, but can't find the direction to turn to.

Memoirs of a Geisha. blah, a 2. excellent photography, and some quite good acting save it from total ick. but the story and setting just were not nice.

Elizabethtown. 200512. much better than expected, a chick flick, but excellent, great wake/memorial, excellent road trip, romantic comedy, and good at all three. an 8 imdb

Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead. watched at Tracys on her big drop down screen and projection tv. yay. one of the best movies ever and prob my 2nd favorite comedy just after Holy Grail. Rape of the Sabine women, or rather women, or rather Alfred. England I don't belive it! Just a conspiracy of cartographers? imdb

Mirrormask. 200510. absolutely great a 9. The actress who played Helena was a bit off at times, but it was minor, the story could have been a little stronger - less happenstance more struggle, but was well done. Excellent visually, and I though not at all difficulty to follow. imdb

Corpse Bride. 20050925. excellent. quite reminiscent of NBX but less a musical. carter hold the show - her character the bride is the best one. Depp's characters is too much a Victorian wimp, and victoria just lets stuff happen to her - at first she tried to fight it but gave up. so the story is a bit weak, the visuals are as good as NBX, the music is very good. a 8. imdb

Brothers Grimm. 20050828. excellent, good creepy fun fantasy, keeping to the original Grimm tales, not the prettied up Disney stuff, as good as any Gilliam movie, not his best, but still good fun. an 8. imdb

Batman Begins. 20050701. a very good batman movie - Ras Al Guhl was excellent, good setup for the batman universe history, an excellent superhero movie, certainly better than the last few batmans, as good as Burton's but with a different slant. a 6. good action movie, some excellent actors in the minor parts. imdb

Wicked - the musical - live at the pantages. 20050630. Good. excellent sets, costumes good, effects very good, music good, lyrics ok, story good. overall good a 6. went with David, Shelley, Alex, Me.

Howls Moving Castle. 20050618. Miazaki's new movie - very good, a _great_ adaption. prob the least for kids of his movies, tho. thick with plot - well a little bit - certainly more than American animated films, but certainly not overmuch. good ending, added a but more war stuff than I remember from the book, and toned down howl a bit. a 9. maybe not my new fav Miazaki movie but certainly top 3. imdb

Thirteenth Floor. 200506? watched again. good as I remembered - but more, continues further than where I remember the 'end', didn't really think the clean up ending was all that memorable - I stopped when they find out they're the '2nd simulacrum' gonna have to read the book and see what it was like. a 7. atmospheric, no-name cast but many recognizable faces.

Death to Smoochy. 20050428. very good a 9. excellent cast, excellent dialogue, very funny good denouement & end.

Sin City. 20050402sat. a great movie - if you liked the comix you'll like the movie, not perfect - there are a few scenes with dialogue that is just a bit off, but a solid 9. possibly the best adaption of original work ever.

Princess Bride, The. 20050120- 5th? viewing at least. excellent. very amusing. a 10.

Black Hole, the. 20050105. wow, poor acting, plotless story, dated effects, nice theme music, and overly cutesy robot r2-d2 knockoffs. storyless random ending. a 2. actually very amusing to watch and make fun of, but not really fun in & of itself. leaden acting, very dated effects, totally unrealistic science, weird Dante & hell references, ending just trying to get by on effects with no plot what-so-ever. some of the dumbest fights, robots doing quick-draw target practice?!, very hmm suspect robot fight scene with 'rape' overtones near the end. Red 'black' hole, strangest meteor shower just aiming at the ship no-where else, could have just moved a few feet & got out of the way, still attempt the maneuver even as the ship is being destroyed via meteor - no attempt to abort & fix it first. robot esp, but wait just her, no he did it too, no just her, huh? not even consistent within itself. an all-effects movie where the effects didn't last the test of time.

Daredevil - 2 he would _never_ allow some one to die no matter _what_ they had done let alone just a rapist! yet within the 1st 5 min... bleah. otherwise ok action.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, the - 9. excellent

Around the World in 80 Days.jackie chan version. 20041229. good, funny, nothing really like the book or other movie, but a good jackie chan movie with vintage futuristic sf stuff. a 5.

Lord of the G-String the R version. a lot of new scenes that are not in the NC-17 version, all the sex is cut drastically. over all a funnier movie, less time between jokes, more hokey jokey stuff. 20041229 a 6.

Napoleon Dynamite. 200412. eh, more cringe-worthy than funny, but there were some laugh out loud moments. high school geek horror slice of life. a 4.

Without a Paddle. 20041120. pretty funny once it finally got funny. a 7. took too long to get them into the woods, but good. moral ending but not too bad.

Chronicles of Riddick 1: Pitch Black. 20041118. pretty good horror sf - sort of Alien/Aliens feel. not really great production. good characters tho. a 5.

Chronicles of Riddick (2) eh, lots of sf effects, but not really much of a story. a 5.

50 First Dates. drew & adam sandler. very cute with lots of funny. a 9. better than wedding singer.

Shipping News, The. 20040108. over at Kathy & Dan's place with the huge projection screen. actually a good movie, I'd thought it was going to be a rather sappy chick-flick, but while still rather a chick flick, it had more backbone than most. newfoundland, pirates in your family tree, good work by spacy, a 5. nothing spectacular, but better than a lot of stuff.
