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

Last of the Pixar films:

WALL-E (2008)

Several centuries after mankind has left a heavily polluted Earth, the last remaining robot, Wall-E, has developed a personality and a wide range of emotions in his long period of solitude. Craving companionship, he soon meets Eve, a probe searching for plant life to see if Earth is once again habitable for human beings. Wall-E develops romantic feelings for her and his attachment soon takes him on a journey across outer space where his heart & liveliness touches all beings he comes in contact with, humans & robots alike.

This is probably Pixar's riskiest film, but it paid off in a big way. Its a beautifully done film. Its one of the best love stories ever put to film and the two love interests can barely say their own names. There are long periods of only the dialog given between Wall-E & Eve, and its kind of an adjustment, but everything looks great & the story is believable & engaging. Wall-E himself is easily one of the most lovable characters Pixar has created. He's like Charlie Chaplin mixed with R2-D2. And I loved the whole message of the film. Some took it as overly preachy environmental message, but I thought of it as more of a "stop & smell the roses" type of message, and the film just tells us to embrace our humanity more. Wall-E is great, and its one of Pixar's best.

10/10

UP (2009)

An elderly widower named Carl Frederickson is faced with being committed to a retirement home & losing his house. Deciding to live out a dream that both he & his deceased wife shared, he plans to tie 1000s of balloons to his house and fly it to Paradise Falls in South America. He gets an unexpected stowaway in Russel, a young boy who is eager to prove himself as a real Wilderness Scout. Once in South America, the two find themselves on an epic adventure with exotic wildlife, vast jungles, and an army of talking dogs.

This film almost felt like Pixar was showing off. It was like they picked the concept through the dartboard method, they hit "flying house", and then said "We will make audiences cry over this movie", and sure enough they succeeded. If you think about the concept of the flying house for more than five minutes, it really does make absolutely no sense. However, I am willing to suspend disbelief for such a wonderful & heartfelt story like this. Carl's loss of his wife is what everybody talked about and they were some of the saddest scenes I've ever seen in an animated film as its easy to see the pain of his loss. Like other Pixar films, we see themes of loyalty and friendship between Carl, Russel, & the lone talking dog to help them, Dug. By the way, the film is really funny too, and the talking dogs are a huge part of that. The characters are lovable, the story is great, and its just Pixar magic injected into the strangest of concepts.

10/10

Just saw Eclipse (no homo). Better than what I thought it would be like. I give it 5.5/10.

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

The Last Airbender- a film about the last surviving airbender, and how the Fire Nation tries to capture him. Starring Noah Ringer, Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire), and Nicola Peltz (Righteous Kill). Not a fan of the series, but I must admit the plot of the series sounds fun. The movie though, uggh. The kid actors were boring, and couldn't get the job done. You can't get into any of the characters, nor can you actually stay in the film with interest. I kept zooming out. While it was flashy, its another horrible 3D experience. My stupid theater removed their 2D shows at the last minute, and I was forced to watch it in 3D. I was surprised it ended the way it did, and was disappointed in all honesty. Some moments of cool scenes, but nowhere near enough to lift the film or live up to the hype it received. Genuinely disappointed.

4/10

Grown Ups

This might be the worst movie I've seen in the last two years.... Total shoot.

It's so terrible in every single way possible that I'm finding it hard to put into words.


What a piece of garbage.

Get Him To The Greek

My god, how funny is Russel Brand? This film was hilarious in so many ways, Brands character was amazing.

I would strongly recommend anyone to go see this.

Eclipse

I enjoyed it for the most part. I keep on hoping someone will kill Bella but I know that's not going to happen.
