The Incredibles - 2004

Rated - PG
115 min.

How did you ever miss this one!?
Seriously, this is one of Pixar's best, by far! (personally Wall-e is my favorite, but all the same, This is their best all around!)
Oh well, let's pretend like you have been trapped in a swedish prision cell for 10 years and you need to make up for lost time. So what makes this movie... (excuse the pun) so INCREDIBLE?! let me tell you!
So you like superheroes, but wondered how the "real" world would deal with them... lawsuits and destruction of buildings and what not... well they would go into a witness protection program and hang up the old cape. These heroes have done just that. On top of that, they have tried to take up normal jobs, but then heroes start dissapearing! Someone is hunting them down!
Who could it be faithful reader!? watch to find out more. This movie is just a joy and if you were in that swedish prision and have just been released due to the false charges of money laundering being dropped, then snag this one up. You'll love it, no doubt about it!

Roll Bounce - 2005

Rated - PG-13
112 min.

So, I've seen this movie awhile ago, when it first came out. But recently, VH1 has been playing it almost every weekend. I thought it would be a good time to review it, seeing as I would put it in a rental level. Now you can watch it without renting it!
The movie is the perfect lazy sunday morning movie. It's quaint and warm hearted, while still being pretty funny. It is very steeped in 1970's period humor, which is fine by be. (I'm a huge fan of the 70's.) There's a good bit of humor mixed with drama, and the acting is way above what the movie "should" have. I was very suprised with... Bow Wow's... acting abilities. If you like rollerskating, the 1970's and Kool and the gang go and watch this one the next time it's on TV.

Up - 2009

Rated - PG
98 min.

Yet again, Pixar delivers. I keep expecting them to slip up somewhere, but they just don't. The movie revolves around an old man who has lost his wife and has decided to stay locked away from society. When a construction crew plans on kicking him out of his home he sets flight. The house flying on a billion balloons wafts through adventure. Think, around the world in 80 days meets Gullivers Travels. All he and his wife ever wanted was adventure, and he has found it! With the help of Kevin the female pehistoric bird, Dug the dog and a helpful boy scout they find themselves in a wild land of adventure!
The animation is beautiful! No, beyond beautiful. Each Pixar film seems to tackle one main fasset of their filming. Wall-e was the camera. With Up, it would seem to me that they were headed for texturing. Some of the close ups are simply astounding of how realistic the fabrics look. Yet somehow they retain their cartoon-ish feel.
Definatly go see this movie. The film is geared more towards adults which makes it all the better. and unlike Dreamworks, where adult means shit humor, with Pixar adult means heavy topics which children can still enjoy. Warning, (in all seriousness) you might tear up a bit in the beginning, if you're bringing a date, grab some kleenex! On the other hand, if you are with a girlfriend and have no intentions for commitment, probably avoid this movie, she'll be talking about marrige the whole ride home. Good hunting movie lovers!

Punisher - War Zone - 2008

Rated - R
103 min.

Personally I don't know why they decided to do a remake, of the remake... they already did?...
I enjoyed the 2004 Punisher movie. It was a bit hokey and very comic book-ey. But all in all it was fun. This movie was fine as longas you know they are pandering to the Mature audiences. Swearing and gore, not too much sex. Mostly ridiculous blood and gore. Some of it was fun and laugh out load painful. Other bits were just stupid, places where that amount of blood didn't need to be. The story was kind of weak, but no more weak than the last punisher. It's the punisher?! Really how many stories are there?
Man loses family, he kills people cause he's lonely.
On a side note, the little girl in the movie I ended up really feeling for. They did a nice job of showing a relationship of how Frank Castle wants his family again and tries to live vicariously through the other family.
"Wait, wait! My husband, Nicky. We talked about you. Argued about you. He said you were one of the good guys."

RENT IT (on the lower end of rental, close to trash it.)


Eden Log - 2007

Rated - R
98 min.

So I was very excited for this movie, and not to hold back a a good review. I was let down. If you havent heard of it yet, watch the trailer, it's makes it look very interesting. Don't get me wrong, the movie's premise is interesting. A cross of Resident Evil with Crank and a very indepth plot. The acting is fine, for what they're working with. Same goes for the special effects, they come off very... "television budget". But again, for what it is... it's fine.
The two things that suprised me where these:
1. Whats up with France and horror/survival movies all of a sudden? (Forgot to mention this movie is originally French.) I have seen acouple movies recently with this same kind of plot comig from France.
2. With CGI and 3D graphics becoming more and more life like, the video game industry is taking a huge chunk of the financial film pie. This is the first movie that I have seen where I honestly thought I was "watching" a video game. Not watching a movie based on a video game. But honestly the cinematography and chosen camera angles could have been ripped straight from a game. Even the progression of the plot is video game-esc. Battle, survival, plot, battle,... etc...
It might be worth a rainy day torrent download... that is if you've beaten all of your video games already.



Terminator 4 - Salvation - 2009

Rated - PG-13
130 min.

I went to this one thinking I would totally deadpan the review. It was suprisingly entertaining. Don't get me wrong, it was most definatly an action film, no bones about it. But thats not always a bad thing. I know I would have liked more of a plot and more in depth character development, but beggers can't be choosers. It was suprising how well the movie links up with the first in the series and I heard that they've already green lighted a 5th and most likely a 6th to round down the Terminator story. So for sure... (excuse the sad joke...) "They'll be back...!"
This series really has become the "Star Wars" to the action inthused. I would have liked Christian Bale to have brought more to the table, but the actor who played Kyle Reese, Anton Yelchin, was perfect for the role. I of course mention his name, because he was SO good for the role, that I hope people keep their eyes on him. He also played chekov in Star Trek, and we can explect to hear much more from him in the future!
So I'd say a solid summer time rental. If you are so inclined go see it in the theathers, but I'm sure that there is something better out... maybe...

Terminator 3 - Rise of the Machines - 2003

Rated - R
109 min.

Terminator 1 = really cool
Terminator 2 = insane
Terminator 3 = ... boring, lacking in plot, weak villain, piss poor acting?
As I always say, math and movies should never mix. Continuing last weeks theme, the third in the series drops the ball. Don't get me wrong, it's not Alexander or anything, It's actually a fun movie. You MUST turn your brain off to watch it. The plot fals apart with any decoding, and don't get me started on John Conners acting... (I think I threw up a bit in my mouth just now...)
All in all, it should be included in the ..trilogy?... quadrilogy?... 6rilogy? But it will be the weakest of the group.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day - 1991

Rated - R
137 min

So in keeping with this weeks theme, I bring you T2! This is my personal favorite in the series. And the 4 oscars the movie won would agree with me. Hyper violent, weird lingo and graphics that still somehow hold up to todays standards. It is the perfect example of the 1990's and all of it's splendor!
So in summary, the Terminator unit return, must take down his futuristic replacement T-1000. This liquid metal robot can shape shift, and destroy. Which he does much of through out the film. Again, If you some how missed this one definatly go grab it! Theres no reason why you wouldn't love it.
