I watched Frontier(s). It's basically the French version of Hostel.
I also saw a film called Dog eat Dog about a Thai hitman who falls in love with an abused girl, it's sort of strange in an [spoiler]everyone dies [/spoiler]way.

Call me a baby, but I haven't cried the way I did in a looooong time over WALL-E. I found it so touching, right down to the music and the execution of the plot. And EVE has to be my new favorite character.

I saw Hancock today... It was pretty good, but somewhat predictable. It wasn't as funny as I thought it would be, but I liked the plot, and I think Will Smith is a pretty good actor.
The Music of the Night and Tuxedo Mirage are what keep me from going completely INSANE! (right...)

I just was WALL-E two days ago.

*_*

Pixar... I love you so much.
WALL-E was simply brilliant. I'd recommend it to anybody. This deserves to win awards, but we know it won't. ;_;
So... I NOMINATE WALL-E FOR THE STEVEN COLBERT AWARD.

Anyway, Joe and I saw Kung Fu Panda yesterday, and I thought it was great. Jack Black = win.

Rachel: Huh...a...moo point?

The Dark Knight

Post by michikodesu » Mon Jul 21, 2008 12:34 am

I just saw Batman yesterday and can I say how throughly impressed I was with the Joker!! The late great Heath Ledger was totally awesome! But on the bad side.......it seems like there will never be a Batman movie without the annoying chick in it...this time it was Bruce Wayne's childhood friend (again) Rachel Dawes. Was it me or did Maggie Gyllenhaal look kinda old in the movie? I dunno, they could have picked a better actress in my opinion....but that would not have made the character any more tolerable in my mind.

I give the movie two thumbs up, anyway!! Go see it if you really love Batman!!
GAZ: I m only thirteen levels away from finishing this game. So I either finish my game or make you wish I was never born!!

I saw the Dark knight today. It was outstanding and Heath Ledger was amazing as the joker. I have to say I was actually quite attracted to the joker, hehe.

The scene where the joker is approaching Rachel and he is pushing his hair back in order to look smooth was hilarious. Heath should win an award for his performance, I really hope he does, it's just a shame he died too young.

I absolutely loved that movie, and the Joker was amazing. I was disappointed with how little screen time both Scarecrow and Two Face got overall, being that they're two of my favorite batman villains ;_;

I loved the pencil trick =D =D

I saw Juno yesterday, I liked it. I dunno why some people hate it, I personally think it's more optimistic than other teen pregnancy movies (especially Lifetime movies). I don't agree that it glorifies teenage pregnancy like some people have been saying. I agree that the slang was a bit much, but at least Juno didn't say something like 'BEING PREGNANT IS PHAT!'. Honestly, if Lisa Lumby Richards rewrote the whole script, I think it would have been much worse.

Just recently, I decided to take it upon myself to watch one of the worst movies ever made. And by that, I mean I actually sat down and watched the unriffed version of Battlefield Earth.

If you have managed to avoid all the buzz about the story, here's the deal: In the year 2000, this evil, purple-air breathing race called the Psychlos took over our planet (which now is covered in green air) and have been mining it for gold. But somehow, they missed Fort Knox Which has survived a thousand years of being exposed to the elements, with all its bars intact and clean. Our hero, a guy named Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, is captured from an implausibly well-preserved mall (after hilariously crashing through several panes of ridiculously well-preserved stunt glass) and forced to work in their mines. Now, the head Psychlo, Terl (John Travolta playing a gay British Mafioso) is a selfish git who schemes to have a ridiculous amount of gold for himself, so he hires Jonnie, trains him in everything, and then leaves the guy to his own devices just like any moron would do. Of course, Jonnie's smarter than any dipshit Psychlo, and so he goes to Ft Knox, gets the gold, and then spends the rest of his time learning how to fly jets that not only haven't been used for a millennium, but also didn't succeed the first time (and it's a miracle that they even exist at all). And then Jonnie recalls that Psychlo atmosphere/"breath gas" is explosive . Yeah, I don't understand it either. Which means that our armies were useless, because we fell to a bunch of utter morons who could quite easily have been felled by just one nuclear bomb. But humanity finally twigs to that fact, and manages to find, along with all the Harrier jets, stunt glass and concrete walls, that we have a fully functional nuclear warhead. And that the Psychlos have a working teleporter. Since you're all smarter than any one of the people involved in this movie, I'll leave you to figure out how that gets used. The movie ends with the Psychlo stronghold also destroyed (never mind how much destruction that would actually entail, given what we know about their atmosphere) and Terl imprisoned inside Ft Knox.

Yes, I know I just spoiled the entire movie without warning or spoiler tags. Most of you are probably smart enough to know not to spend money on this movie. I certainly didn't. Most you'll spend is probably about...a dollar.

In order to entice you further, I give you this quote from Terl:
While you were still learning to SPELL YOUR NAME, I was being trained to conquer galaxies!
.

(for maximum enjoyment, the line should be uttered in a ridiculous British accent)

A word of warning, though: All scenes are shot with coloured filters (Blue/Purple for Psychlo areas, green for the rest of Earth) and at ridiculous angles. Not for those prone to splitting headaches.

Betsy Bubblegum's Journey Through Yummi-Land

Imagine the Bratz. Now, imagine the Bratz on a sugar high. And you get Betsy Bubblegum's Journey Through Yummi-Land.

The premise is this: Betsy Bubblegum is your average flavour-themed girl, who is going through Yummi-Land on the day of the biggest celebration ever. While there, she meets with her uncle, Mayor Sticky Marshmallow. And his aide, a bipedal bulldog in a business suit (repeat after me: it's a cartoon). And then, after being rebuffed in her attempts at helping him prepare for this ridiculously extravagant celebration, she goes off to an amphitheatre to meet up with the Candy Pop Girls, a local girl band. With a candy theme to the names. I don't actually remember any of the names, and none of the other characters stick around long enough for us to care. The Candy Pop girls are in a crisis: they've been selected to perform for the celebration, but can't seem to think of anything spectacular enough for the performance. Betsy suggests they use scented bubbles. She gets points for originality. Which can't quite compensate for her case of the hiccups. So they get her out into the fresh air, and she chases an orange sherbet puppy into a flower shop, meating the Flower Pop Girls and their ridiculously competent dogs. The only Flower Pop Girl whose name I remember is Lindsay Lue Lilac, and that I recall because she bears an uncanny resemblance to Miley Cyrus. Anyway, it turns out that the puppy is without an owner, and they suggest Betsy adopt it. In order to pay for the adoption, they give her a cash-in-hand job attempting to do stuff, before they discover that her sense of smell is second-to-none. So they set her the task of putting potpourri in the party favours, which gives her the sneezes. She adopts the dog, which runs off into a hair salon. Where the guest of honour at the ceremony has been de-scented by the Ice Cream Pop Girls. Betsy sets to work, succeeds, suffers no ill side effects and becomes the first ever "scentician" And finally, she is thanked by all three groups at the ceremony. Which is shown to be the most anticlimactic ceremony ever--it's a doggie wedding for the Bulldog's daughter. The only thing this has going for it is that it's not nearly as painful--or as frightening--as the animated Bratz canon. And the fact that it is on a sugar high (which isn't contagious, unfortunately).

I don't know if this counts as a movie but I gotta post it anyway

I saw the Star Wars Holiday Special for the first time 2 weeks ago

Yep I sat through the entire 2 hours of this masterpiece without a break.

It changes you is all I gotta say. It's an experience that the whole family will enjoy

I know EXACTLY what you mean. She was only really needed for that final dramatic 'Drag hand down screen' scene.

I saw a bit of Pan's labyrinth, the scene with the Pale man and it scared the shit out of me. If I was in Ofelia's position I would probably of deposited into my pants right there and then.

St Trinians

"Remember, girls, we have a reputation to uphold here!"

Finally, a remake I like better than the original!

If you're not familiar with the titular school, it's basically a school full of the most ill-behaved, anarchic schoolgirls one has ever had the misfortune to encounter. The teaching staff have all given up actually teaching them anything except the things we really want to know (like how to swear to an alibi in French). And the science lab is now a distillery, from which they send spirits down to local spiv Flash Harry.

The movie begins with headmistress Miss Fritton's (Rupert Everett) niece Annabelle arriving at the school. While initially horrified at the sheer lack of discipline expressed by the students, she gradually adapts to their horrifying (yet rather G-rated) ways.

But this anarchy is doomed. The bank is threatening the school with closure, Miss Fritton's right shit of a brother wants and Education Minister Geoffrey Thwaites (Colin Firth) wants to make an example out of the girls. So the girls plan a heist (complete with that immortal Italian Job quote, the Power Walk and some split-screen action) that revolves around a game show in the National Gallery.

All in all, a good load of fun. Even if you don't like the idea of [spoiler]Colin Firth killing off Mr Darcy.[/spoiler]
