Licence To Kill

This is a James Bond film that came out in 1989 and features Timothy Dalton as Bond. I've heard a lot about the skills of Dalton as Bond and how he is the worst of them. This was my first time seeing him as Bond and I don't think he's as bad as has been let on.

He's closer to Daniel Craig's Bond than Connery's which translates to the plot as well being about revenge.
While out in Miami for his friend and counterpart Felix Leiter's wedding, Felix is wounded and his wife is killed. Bond connects escaped drug lord Franz Sanchez who was caught thanks to Leiter. Since Sanchez is overseas and well protected, Bond gives up his agent status for personal revenge.

I like how Dalton plays a hard-edged Bond in this and how the plot isn't over the top world domination like a lot of other Bond movies. The movie wasn't anything spectacular or memorable though.

7/10

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

The Haunting of Molly Hartley- a film about a girl, who goes to trauma and struggles to cope with herself in a new school. Starring Haley Bennett (College), Chace Crawford (The Covenant), and Jake Weber (Dawn of the Dead). This film started off being decent. But as it got near the end it was getting predictable as to what the "twist" would be. And then the last 5 minutes were utter bullshit. The director did a great job at explaining nothing, and ending the film in the worst and most confusing way possible. Avoid this film because it will let you down.

5/10

Hot Fuzz

A comedy about a London police officer who gets transferred to a rural town where everything seems perfect and there is no such thing as "murder". After he investigates a series of "accidents" he gets deep into something he has no idea about. Pretty funny film that reminded me of Super Troopers in a way and has some over the top ridiculous violence. It's also funny seeing Timothy Dalton since I just did a review of him as James Bond.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Movies from Saturday and Sunday

Red Eye [re-watch] - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 2005 thriller starring Cillian Murphy and Rachel McAdams and directed by Wes Craven. Really love this movie, its just 80 minutes of pure action, and Cillian Murphy is deadly good in this. McAdams plays an airport employee, about to get caught in a possible assassination attempt, with no way out, or else her father dies. Fantastic pacing, good twists, great fun.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show [re-watch] - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 1975 musical classic starring Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon. It is totally whacky and completely random, this story of what happens when a couple looks for some car help in a large mansion owned by what turns out to be a transvestite. With some real great performances and songs, it is a joyous watch, if not a completely unexplainable one.

It Happened One Night - **** (9/10)
- 1934 romantic classic starring the master of romance, Clark Gable. Movies like Juno totally get their inspiration here, as the writing is witty and constantly working off each others lines. A woman escapes her family and possible marriage and heads to travel to New York to entice her dreams, where she meets a man who helps her along the way, and they build an extremely interesting relationship, all leading up to her arrival in New York, and the events that follow. Fantastic dialogue in this movie, a fine example of screenwriting.

The Unborn - ** (5/10)
- 2009 American horror film directed by David S. Goyer. It's your average american horror film. There isn't any tone or mood, just shock attempts. They make you jump, then forget about you. Make you jump, forget about you. It doesn't know how to build anything, which makes for a generally average attempt. Plus, the plot is stupid, but you won't even care that much about it anyhow.

Boogeyman 3 - * (1/10)
- 2009 straight-to-DVD terrible excuse for a horror movie. I can't believe I've already probably ended up seeing the worst movie of the year. Its some college dorm, and they start seeing the Boogeyman after one of their friends is haunted, basically following the pattern as the first two. It just is horrendous, with bad acting, bad writing, and really lame special effects. Wasn't even funny to watch, which takes out the "so bad its good" idea.

Year of the Dog - ** (4/10)
- 2007 comedy starring Molly Shannon and Peter Saarsgard. A woman has nothing really in her life except for her dog, and when he breaks into the neighbors and is poisoned, her life changes completely. She meets a fellow pet-lover, becomes a vegan, starts trying to recruit people to collect dogs from a shelter, and also, generally starts losing her mind. It's quite unpleasant to watch, and all you ever really want to do is punch the main character in the face. It also doesn't tend to ever really get that funny, and i found a hard time trying to find its purpose. Maybe its producer Brad Pitt could tell me.

cool and smooth, that's how i play.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

In Bruges- a film about two hitmen who hide out in the city of Bruges. They await orders from their gangster boss, Harry Waters. Starring Colin Farrell (Pride and Glory), Brendan Gleeson (Beowulf), and Ralph Fiennes (The Duchess). I am so glad that I finally got around to seeing this film, because it was awesome. Colin Farrell deserved that Golden Globe he received, and both Gleeson and Fiennes delivered well. Great plot with its funny moments, and a great film of 2008. I recommend everyone to see this film.

8/10

Monday Movies

Sin City [re-watch] - **** (10/10)
- 2005 film noir directed by robert Rodriguez and starring some great talents like Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Benecio Del Toro, Clive Owen, Rosario Dawson, etc. It takes three of the Sin City stories and puts them all into one, surrounding hookers, killers, rapists, and political figures.

The Poughkeepsie Tapes - ** (5/10)
- 2009 horror movie about some tapes of a serial killer found in a basement after he was caught. It was a very nice premise, and a very cool idea. The trailer made it look good, but it was just really tacky, and too many parts came off as cheesy. Not really scary at all, while proving to be at least slightly entertaining.

cool and smooth, that's how i play.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Not Easily Broken- a film about a couple that goes to struggles in their relationships after a car accident. Starring Morris Chestnut (The Perfect Holiday), Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button), and Maeve Quinlan. This film was not as bad as I thought it would be. A little too much on the dramatic side, but makes for a good time. It may feel recycled, in terms of the story but I did feel it was ok. Not something you should go out of your way for, but a film to watch when you can.

6/10

RocknRolla (Ritchie; 2008) - 8.5/10

A most likely soon to be cult classic starring Gerard Butler (300), Tom Wilkinson (The Full Monty), Thandie Newton (W.), Jeremy Piven (Smokin' Aces), and Chris "Ludacris" Bridges (Max Payne). Definitely an entertaining movie and a fun one to watch. It's not the amazing Snatch, but it's good.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Dance of the Dead
This is one of the Ghost House underground series. The story follows a group of high schoolers during the prom. But something awakes the dead from a near by graveyard. Now the group of teens must survive. Honestly this movie was pretty good. Some pretty good funny moments mixed with some gore. I would recommend it for a viewing.

Rating: 7/10

Two Tigers
Alright, im a sucker for stupid looking movies i see at walmart, and this one was one of them. Usually i get a good laugh at how stupid the movie is, however this one was so bad it wasnt even funny. The story (as painstaking as it is for me to say it). is about a female assassin who is sent to china to complete another job but along the way she befriends a chinese call girl. Ugh, Basically the whole movie plays out like a really bad softcore porno on cinemax except without the funny stuff. The entire movie is sex, boobs, and more sex. The violence is almost non-existent, except for a scene involving a machete. The acting is so bad its hard to even sit and watch the full 90 minutes of the movie. Avoid this movie at all costs.

Rating: 1/10

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Bride Wars- a film about two best friends who become rivals, when they learn their weddings fall on the same day. Starring Kate Hudson (My Best Friend's Girl), Anne Hathaway (Rachael Getting Married), and Candice Bergen (The Women). Critics have said this film was very disasterous, but I think it was okay. I mean sure its not very good, but it was interesting at times. Its a slump for both Hathaway and Hudson to be in the film, but they gave it an effort. Not a bad film, but nothing special.

5.5/10

The Unborn- a film about a girl who is haunted by an unborn spirit, which seeks to use her to gain physical existence. Starring Odette Yustman (Cloverfield), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight), and Meagan Good (Saw V). The trailer for this film made it look like a great horror film, but it was pretty average. Delivers some chills, but that's about it. Nice to see Oldman in this film even if it was for a minimal part. A horror film that does not really deliver, as it should have.

5/10
