fraggin’ your way through a movie…

shoot em up

first of all – don’t go see this movie. And don’t rent the dvd either. even downloadin illegal copyis waste of time…

It was kinda funny though. And it must’ve looked awesome on paper. Brilliant script, but it just doesn’t work. Fair bit of killing and you almost get a glimpse of Monica Bellucci’s tits. But you don’.

Have you ever watched anyone play one of those first person shoot ’em ups? Well that’s what this is. So don’t bother. There’s a fair bit of killing and also a couple of unhealthy ways to use carrot.

It’s not that I didn’t like it. I was speechless. If I had a choice now, I’d choose the film was undone.

And I like Clive Owen. And the other… some Giamatti some guy… And tits. cool – if you are 12.

God save the Ozone layer

Have I mentioned I am a John Waters Fan? Well, A short while ago I saw this film, Hairspray. And it was just such a good film, it made me smile throughout, so much so, that my cheeks hurt like I’d been on acid for a week. probably lot less than John Waters in his life time.

This was of course the new version of Hairspray, so a lot less to do with John in all aspects. I have to re-watch the old version shortly though. The cast is brilliant, the music is perfect for a musical like this. Dancing is good, everything makes you feel happy and entertained and the film even has a message. John’s cameo was pretty funny too.

Colorful, cheerful and full of funny moments. Just what I needed that day. And John Travolta is not exactly Divine, but does the job.hairspray

1 plus 4 plus 0 plus 8

I just came from a holiday in New York, where I stayed in the Dolphin hotel… The corridor of the… hmm… 15th or 12th floor (I’ve forgotten the floor already, it’s kinda irrelevant to the holiday, except that you get a better view of the brickwall from the window of a higher floor) was a lot scarier than that of the film’s 13th floor. So if the room numbers on the 13th floor start from 1400, how about the 14th floor?

I don’t know how much of the film they actually shot in hotel Pennsylvania, probably the entrance, maybe the lobby, but that’s got to be it really… still, I felt I’d been there at the scene of the film.

Sadly, the film wasn’t that good. Stephen King has never been very lucky when it comes to films. The Shining is brilliant, so is Dolores Clairborne, I enjoyed Misery, even somehow found Maximum Overdrive funny. I can even watch Christine all the way through. But he has been quite busy writing and getting films made. The film made me think there’s enough material for a short film, but then again, if I got it right, it’s based on a SHORT story… and seems to follow the structure of a short story as well, which is good enough for a feature film I suppose, but surely you need quite a lot of content for 90 minutes of scary movie.

There’s a couple of shockers, but not really that much. Samuel L. Jackson is ok, but hasn’t got much screen time. Cusack’s performance could have been better, but there’s not much to play with. I just kept thinking that if this was on telly, I’d change the channel. Even the poster is pretty dull.1408

Sometimes even the wisest of man or machine can make an error.

I had a transformers toy about 20 years ago. I knew nothing about transformers, had never seen any comics or tv series or anything. Today I saw the film, still without any background information other than that there are these robots that transform into cars, or cars that transform into robots…

I have never really had high hopes with a Michael Bay film, but I do always expect decent action and some funny moments from him, and I was not disappointed. As a comedy it’s not that clever perhaps, but it has its fair share of one-liners and plenty of good looking action. Perhaps aimed at slightly younger audience, but I didn’t mind watching this.

From the plot you kinda get the feeling there’s a bit more story behind all the transformers’ characters, but then Mr Bay only had about 2 hours to tell us the story so I’m not complaining. Shia LaBeouf is a little bit irritating, but does a pretty good job. Megan Fox is a fox indeed.

This film makes me not want to see another movie with teenagers in it. But I would finally want to become more familiar with autobots… Maybe get my hands on the TV series or some of the other transformers films. Entertaining film, that made me smile.Transformers
