Firewall- a film about a family who are trapped by dangerous man, and the father must comply to help them rob the bank. Starring Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), Paul Bettany (The DaVinci Code), and Virginia Madsen (The Number 23). A good film, with a unique plot. I found the film to be quite interesting throughout, Ford delivers a nice solid performance. I recommend this film.
A psychic woman and her husband have to deal with a terrible accident when a fleeing kidnap victim hides in a suitcase without the husband knowing.
Directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa (Pulse) Seance is a slow-moving and always tense horror thriller. Sort of similar to the 6th sense, it's not your conventional horror movie. It doesn't rely on Jump scares or Loud music but rather a dark foreboding feeling takes hold of you and never lets go. Now sometimes the payoff isn't really great and it might be a little too slow for some but there a a few scenes that will literally make your skin crawl. Overall if you like something different in you horror movies check this one out.
The World is Not Enough- a film in which secret agent James Bond must stop a vicious terrorist who feels no pain. Starring Pierce Brosnan (Goldeneye), Sophie Marceau (Braveheart), and Denise Richards (Wild Things). Theres not much to else to say about these Bond films. Great action, and a fun thrill ride. Not to keen on the plot, but it was still delivered well. I can now finally say I have seen all of Pierce Brosnan's Bond films. Its a good thing to check this film out.
Anaconda- a film in which a National Geographic crew are led to a dangerous anaconda by a deranged snake hunter. Starring Jennifer Lopez (Monster in Law), Ice Cube (Friday), and Jon Voight (The Manchurian Candidate). This film was dreadful, I mean it was so bad that I laughed throughout it. Bad acting, bad looking effects, a stupid looking anaconda and thats just scraping the surface. I can see why this film was nominated for multiple Razzies. Terrible indeed, but Jennifer Lopez looked fine, so its not a total waste.
A man foresees the death of his child in a newspaper clipping moments before it happens.
Not to be confused with the Sandra Bullock movie of the same name. This plays out alot like the final destination movies, where the protagonist must decide to help future victims at his own risk or just let them die like planned. The beginning of the film was excellent but sadly the middle led to nowhere and the FX were really cheesy looking. It does pick up at the end with a nice payoff though. The lead actor was really good and you could feel his emotions throughout. Not so much a scary movie as it is a mystery/drama/psychological horror but it has some good moments. Overall not a bad flick, somewhat flawed and badly paced but a good watch.

Probably the best movie of the series. It is very funny film and very action packed at the end. I liked how citizens tried to help in police work especially sweetchuck and zed. Hightower, Jones, Mahoney and Tackleberry were the best.
Seen this before, but a long time ago and watched it again the other day. Great film, Jay and Silent Bob are REALLY funny in this film, like the other films they are in.
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck play a couple of angels who are struck down from Heaven, and find a way to get back into Heaven, but doing so will cause the world to end, and Jay and Silent Bob have to accompony this girl to the church and save the world
Jason Mewes, Kevin Smith, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Jason Lee, Chris Rock and George Carlin (R.I.P)
On Her Majesty's Secret Service- a 007 film in which James Bond tries to find out about the operations of a man named Blofeld. Starring George Lazenby in his first and last role as James Bond. I'm sorry but I just didn't like Lazenby as Bond, I don't think he was the best suit for the role. The action is tame in this film, and after the first hour I wanted to stop watching. This is definitely the weakest James Bond film I have seen thus far.
I watched two movies today so I'll just go ahead and review both:
700 years into the future, manking has left Earth due heavy pollution. The only thing left with the mounds of garbage is WALL-E, a robot designed to clean up the large mess left behind, a task he has to tackle alone. Over the centuries in isolation, Wall-E has developed a personality and a sense of lonliness. That all changes when a more advanced "female" robot named EVE comes to Earth to fulfill an unknown directive. The curious WALL-E immediately becomes smitten with EVE and follows her around, thinking he has finally found a companion. When EVE's directive is fulfilled, she is taken back to a human colony off in deep space, and WALL-E follows her, not fully aware of the adventure he is about to go on.
Well all I have to say is that Pixar has done it again. Seriously. They have NEVER made a bad movie. Their worst was A Bug's Life, and even that one was pretty good. I think Toy Story, Monster's Inc, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Cars, and especially Finding Nemo all rank high up there as some of the greatest animated movies ever made, and Wall-E definately lives up to the high standard that Pixar has set for animated films. The film is ridiculously adorable, but also sophiticated enough to satisfy adult audiences. Alot of the communication between the characters is non verbal (Wall-E's voice is nothing but sound effects) but I was shocked at how well it works. Wall-E is probably the best slapstick, physical comedian since Buster Keaton. Overall, Wall-E is a very entertaining film, and if you like past Pixar films, you'll like this one.
and I went home and finally checked this film out:
FANTASTIC FOUR 2: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER
After the events of the first film, the Fantastic Four are major celebrities and the media only gets crazier when Reed Richards & Sue Storm plan their wedding. As personal conflicts among the team arise, so does an even greater threat as The Silver Surfer, herald and messenger for the planet eating being known as Galactus, comes to Earth and attempts to prepare the planet for his master's arrival. The Fantastic Four has to stop this new menace, while also having to deal with their old nemesis Dr. Doom, who has taken an interest in the Surfer's great power.
ALot of people hated the first movie it seemed. While I agree it was flawed, I still felt like it was a fun and entertainming film with the chemistry between the main cast being the high point. Cheesy yes. Charming, definately. The second film improves upon the first with a more interesting story, great action sequences, and still retaining the charm of the first. The Silver Sufer provides alot of stunning visuals, and the cast once again shows great chemistry and a genuine enjoyment of the work. One major improvement was Dr. Doom. In the first film he was kind of bland and the basic textbook villain, but he comes across as more menacing and devious here, making his presence far more impactful. It's not a brilliant film, but good for sheere enjoyment, and I've had people tell me that they hated the first, but enjoyed this one, so thumbs up for that. If I had one major complaint about this film, its Galactus. Yeah. He sucked.
