After THE LORD OF THE RINGS and KING KONG we haven’t seen much from Peter Jackson. But with DISTRICT 9 we get glimpse of what he is capable of when producing even the weirdest of stories. DISTRICT 9 really is that, a weird story with an even weirder ending. The movie is already released on DVD even though some cinemas in Europe are still showing it. So watch in cinema, DVD or wait for the TV screening? Go ahead and read on, beware of the big fat spoiler at the end of this review!
Michael Jackon’s THIS IS IT shows the last couple of months before his demise. You get to see what he was planning to show all of us and what surprises he had stored for the fans. Besides fragments of his show, people whom he worked with are being interviewed as well. So is this really it? Can we close the story that is Michael Jackson with this movie, or do we feel something is still missing and another chapter is still required?
*TJING* or whatever that effect sounds like when our favorite X-Men pulls out his claws. This sound has become a thing my girlfriend apparently has the hots for, because when we watched this movie I told her about X-MEN 1 to 3. The next few days she just had to see her hairy friend Hugh Jackman playing the one and only Wolverine.
Second in line is the great movie THE WATCHMEN. THE WATCHMEN is a movie based on a twelve-issue comic book series created by writer Alan Moore, artist Dave Gibbons, and colorist John Higgins. It has been published by DC Comics in 1986 and 1987, but I never knew this or heard a thing about it, so when I went to watch THE WATCHMEN, I went in unprepared and unbiased…
Ok ok… some might have noticed updates are not happening as frequently as we are aiming with criticasm. But going to do short version of so me of the latest flicks I have seen. First up MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D.
First things first; Yes this movie contains nudity and yes vulgar language can be found also. So no do not go to this movie with your stuck up girl or boyfriend, nor with your parents, in-laws or whatsoever. This is a movie to be seen with people who can appreciate dirty humor, nudity and whom are not embarrassed by any of previous mentioned things. So seen the movie? Then click on!
Person A: It’s Friday lets go to the movies? Person B: Nah… don’t feel like it Person A: Hey tomorrow the Knicks game is on, wanna watch it at my place? Person B: Sorry, got some stuff I gotta do Person A: I managed to gather our old friends for a poker night! Person B: Damn, already got plans, sorry won’t be able to make it Do the above examples sound familiar to you? Then this movie might be just your thing, note with that though, you have to like Jim Carrey.
Wait just one darn minute before reading any further. Do you know the story of Hamlet; the deaths, the tragedy, the love and the revenge? And did you see any promotion material of this movie? If the first question is answered with ‘Yes’ and the second question with a ‘No’, then this movie might be fun for you. Is Hamlet a stranger to you, do not worry! And if you have seen any promotion materials then chances are you will not enjoy the movie as much as you have expected.
THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL is a remake of the classic film, which dates back to 1951, only this time we get to see Keanu “Wooow” Reeves as the big bad alien, who tells us we are all doomed and are going to die. Was the original movie about the Cold War, the remake is more centered on the humans destroying earth due to their way of living. So does the remake bring us anything worthwhile?
With MY BEST FRIEND’S GIRL actor / comedian Dane Cook gets another chance to star in a “big movie”. EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH was his first major role and we all know how that ended up. Now for those who do not know Dane Cook I would seriously suggest to go to YouTube first and watch some of his acts and shows. Dane Cook is a stand-up comedian from the US. His humor often is the so called “observational comedy” and you can notice some influences of Denis Leary, Richard Pryor and George Carlin.
