The Movie Thread

Postby B » Sat Jun 24, 2006 1:20 pm

I figure since we talk about movies alot on here I'll make a thread for them. The latest thing I've seen was 'Click'. It is pretty much your typical Adam Sandler movie. I thought it was enjoyable.

I saw "House of 1000 Corpses" last night. Directing style was kinda cool, but it was about the least scary horror movie ever. I knew it was bad before I saw it, but I wanted to catch it before seeing "The Devil's Rejects" which, by all acounts, is much much better

I thought it was better than typical.

The beginning was laughs a minute, and then it got...well...deeper later on.

It was great, in my opinion, for that type of movie. And I'm usually a very hard reviewer.

I keep hearing it and I keep finding it hard to believe.

(BTW "Blue Album" is maybe my favorite album of all time+)

Cars is an excellent flick. Fun for the entire family!


Of course, they'll (and when I say "they" i mean "every movie ever made) will pale in comparison to SUPERMAN RETURNS.


At least my son and I are in agreement on this.

Loved, loved, loved Devil Rejects! Rob Zombie crafted a very well made movie.

Cars is an excellent movie, although I think Kids won't enjoy it as much as Nemo or Toy Story

My 3 year old freakin' loved it.

saw click
for me
a little different then your typical sandler flick
that first ending was serious sad stuff, and the build up was to, but it had its moments and cheezy moments.

Syriana is the last film I saw. It's really good if you like politics and conspiracies.

I want to see Cars, mainly because of a certain actor who is the voice of one of the cars.

I really didn't want to see Click, I didn't think it would be anything like it actually was. I was pleasntly surprised.

Let me venture a guess. Bonnie Hunt.



Just kidding. I'm assuming Paul Newman since your screen name is coolhandluke.

Cars is nothing compared to most Pixar flicks, but is alright

Looking forward most to Superman

Cars was pretty good, but the story was weak compared to most Pixar movies. There was no real villain and there was no iminent threat or danger to the hero. It was visually stunning but not much was really at stake.

I was expecting a cheesy laugh fest where they overdo trying to teach you a lesson in the meantime, but I was pleasantly surprised.

I had to fight from crying no less than two three times. And I laughed aloud several times.

For me it's the biggest surprise of the year. Way better than the reviews it's been getting. Go see it!

A good college friend of mine is in the movie for about 15 seconds, so I really should check it out.
