Wedding Crashers

I loved it. If you liked the American Pie series, you’ll like this movie. Excellent summer fun and highly quotable. “I’m Bobby O’Shea” “Lock it up” “She was my first asian”

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

The fact that Hollywood is remaking movies that I remember from my childhood is making me feel old. Oh well, I’ll get over it. Johnny Depp takes on the role of Willy Wonka and when you first hear this, it sounds great because Johnny is just the sort of weirdo that you imagine as Willy. […]

National Lampoon’s does lawn bowling. Pretty good movie. English. Vince Vaughn plays a part. Rent.

Diary of a Mad Black Woman

My parents saw this movie when they were in Florida this past winter and my dad has been raving about it ever since. I figured I had better see it just so that I know what he’s talking about. Its the story of a rich woman who gets tossed out of her house by her […]

The Boondock Saints

The Coach has been recommending this movie for a few years and I finally got around to watching it. I agree that it is a great film. From the get-go, the viewer is sucked into the story of two Irish brothers who become vigilantes. Interesting, yet strangely disturbing performance by Willem Dafoe as the FBI […]

Fight Club

I felt tricked. This is one of those movies with a twist ending. It has little things throughout the movie that don’t add up, things we just assume are mistakes made by the director, only to discover five minutes from the end that if we had been just a smidgen smarter, we would have put […]

Kim Possible: The Secret Files

I admit that I still watch cartoons. There are a bunch of really good ones on Disney’s One Saturday Morning slot. Recess, Filmore, and of course, Kim Possible. For those of you who don’t follow the Saturday morning cartoons, Kim Possible is a high school cheerleader, who, in her spare time fights evil with her […]

Fantastic Four

Yet another Marvel movie. I enjoyed it. It was lighter than some of the more recent comic book adaptations (Batman, Sin City, The Punisher) and it was refreshing. I’ve heard a lot of people complain that the movie was a comedy (a little exaggeration, I think) but I believe the comic book is the same […]

My Baby’s Daddy

I’ve decided to add a new feature to the Movie Blog: a thumbnail of the movie poster. Not much to say about this movie. 2 hours of my life I’ll never get back.

When Harry Met Sally

“Baby fish mouth” Bought.

War of the Worlds

This is supposed to be one of the biggest movies of the summer. A remake of the 1953 movie which is based on the H.G. Wells sci-fi novel. This is a must see, if not because of its blockbuster status, to shut Tom Cruise up. If everyone in the world sees this movie, he won’t […]

The Big Lebowski

“The Dude abides.” I was in the mood to rewatch this Coen brothers classic. Here is the plot outline from IMDb, which does a much better job than I ever could: “Dude” Lebowski, mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, seeks restitution for his ruined rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help get it. Buy.

Howl’s Moving Castle

This is an animated film from Japan. It’s the story of a immature wizard who lives in an enchanted castle that, as is stated in the title, can move around (it walks). Because it’s Japanese, it’s weird. I kept getting a strong Final Fantasy vibe a la flying warships. This isn’t for everyone but I […]

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

A Stanley Kubrick classic that I should have seen earlier. This is a satiric look at the cold war arms race. Peter Sellers give an amazing performance as three of the main characters. My favourite line from the movie: “You can’t fight in here, this is the war room!” Must see, possible buy.

Bewitched

I’m convinced that Nicole Kidman really is a witch. How else is it possible that she gets better looking with each movie. I don’t think she ages, in fact, I think she’s slowly getting younger. I’m buying this movie as soon as it’s released on dvd.
