I like movies. I studied film during my school years before moving on to a long career in the Information Technology Industry. I believe that not every movie is for everybody, however, I believe that if you know what the good, the bad, and the ugly of the cinematic arts, you can decide for yourself what to watch. I am but a guide.

Re: “The Fourth Kind

Is there something supernatural going on here, or is it something else?

Starring Milla Jovovich, this 2009 thriller purports to be based on the true story of psychologist, Abigail â~Abbeyâ(TM) Tyler. Nigerian writer and director Olatunde Osunsanmi, films The Fourth Kind in documentary style, that creates the illusion of reality, however, the story depicted is, at best hypothetical. Universal Pictures marketing machine even went to the extent of posting fake obituaries, and news articles on the web as part of their guerilla campaign. As of this writing, The Fourth Kind has only grossed $25,486,040 in domestic sales and only $45,192,880 worldwide. In spite of initial poor reviews by critics, The Fourth Kind is a compelling story that will allow the viewer to speculate along with the film. More...http://tinyurl.com/4by9rea[edit]

Re: “Thirst Unquenched

Battle: LA is shallow, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun to watch. Yes they took a lot of action scenes from many different war pictures and tried to put into a sci-setting. I am not sure about destroying Disneyland, I am sure there would be 'Mothers Against Destroying Mickey Mouse' wanting to boycott the movie or some crap like that. I had fun watching it. Here are the rest of my thoughts - http://tinyurl.com/4sn7osq

Re: “The Other Guys

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg -- Say it Isn't So!

The flaw for The Other Guys is in the thin story that McKay and Henchy try to flesh out Ferrell's natural comedic pacing. In this case, it seems to me that Will isn't given enough material to keep the laughs coming with out running constantly into awkward pauses that take the actors a beat to recover I get what McKay is trying to do with a Lethal Weapon reverse parody, but it doesn't quite work.

Re: “Feeling Robbed

The re branding of a legend, Ridley Scott style.

Two words that do not go together in the same sentence are Ridley Scott, and history. However, any viewer, who wishes to see Robin Hood, starring Russell Crowe, as the legendary, man of the people, may not get what they traditionally expect. What you will get is Ridley Scott, making no apologies as he and Brian Helgeland weave a new tale is full of action, adventure, romance, and a just a touch of history. Sounds like any other Ridley Scott, historical perspective film, like Black Hawk Down, Gladiator, or Kingdom of Heaven. Yes, you still see a Lady Marion, played by Cate Blanchet (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), but not the damsel in distress Maid Marian, but a more warrior goddess Marion. more... http://tinyurl.com/4npajtu

Re: “Destined for Lameness

I have a different take on this film. Make no mistake, The Adjustment Bureau, starring Matt Damon, and Emily Blunt, is a love story. That being said, the Science Fiction element adds an interesting layer of fantasy to this tragic romance between two lovers, who, while fated to be together, destiny interferes to keep them apart. Mad Men's John Slattery and Terrence Stamp also star in this twisted tale of love, humor, fate, destiny, and freewill. A pleasant surprise is the portrayal of Adjustment Bureau Team member 'Harry' as portrayed by Anthony Mackie (Notorious). Mackie gives a human feeling to the film and acts not only as a guide for David Norris in navigating this world, but also acts as a conscience for this familiar but altered world. The Adjustment Bureau is a fast paced, but thoughtful film, and full of plot holes if you think about them too hard, so don't. more...http://tinyurl.com/46bmffb

Re: “Prepare to Have Your Cash Cab Dreams Crushed

Not surprised. Most game shows prescreen for the right type of contestant.

Re: “Toy Story 3

The biggest issue I have in writing a review for Toy Story 3 is how much of the story does one need to know in order to decide to watch this excellent film. As a "big" kid who still enjoys his "toys," and as a parent watching his reaching the age of Andy and Molly in Toy Story 3, the film hits close to home. Bringing the voices from Toy Story and Toy Story 3 back are Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and Joan Cusack, sadly Jim Varney, the voice of Slinky Dog, died of cancer in 2000. More: http://tinyurl.com/25hhgqf
