Movie reviews

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
This thread should be used to help each other decide whether or not to see a movie.
Members who have seen a film recently can post a brief smiley review of it.
For example, if you liked it and think it was good you could say

Austin Powers: Goldmember- ,or, <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

If you didn't likea film you could say

Vanilla Sky- <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" /> ,or,

Smleys could also be used to say if the plot was a mystery ETC.

If you thought a movie was gay some people could use that picture of Spiderman.

Just a suggestion of course but I think it could really help people decide if they want to see a movie or not.

Austin Powers 3 - Goldmember <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" /> <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

wow! this film has changed from being plot based like the previous 2 to mainly gag based, a lot of cameos enhance the film and make it superb

five thumbs up

"how about NO, you freaky danish b@st@rd"

Sorry.

Road to Predition, very enjoyable.

This from me, who usually sticks to the comedy's.

This movie was one of the few that I have bothered to see in the theatres in recent years and was well worth the visit.

If you can get past all the killing, it's a great Plot movie that is a nice change from the mindless summer crap, such as "Crocodile Hunter"

NO! NO! I can't STAND those commercials!
(My family is known as the "turtle people". We have 8 turtles, and 5 more on the way.)

Just saw "Kung Pow" on DVD. But I keep asking myself: Why? <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

Scooby Doo.
<img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

In some ways <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" /> ,

Yet in others <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />

It was very faithful to the cartoon but some of the bits aimed at the younger audience! There's only so much of a flatulence contest a man can take.

Interesting choice of villain though. Anyone who has seen him in the cartoon even once will understand why.

just watched "MIB2"...and its not as bad as u think

after all the critisms of this film i was very sceptical however the film is pretty damn good seeming as it is a comedy sequal

in fact compared to the absolutly cr4p "American Pie" and its sequal "American Pie 2: the humour wasnt there in the first so what the heck do you expect from this one" its fantastic

go see "MIB2" if u dont expect brilliance u will be surprised but if u go expecting the world u'll go home with an empty box of popcorn

note:- its waaaaaaay better than first and i dont care what anyone else thinks

Well, Leviathun, it would appear it is indeed a small world.

<img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />
Sorry for laughing but yes the film was funny. I almost felt an affinity with the overwight Scotsman. He was a fat b@stard whilst you may know me as a phat b@stard. If you know what I mean Leviathun.

Old man Vargas thought it was very funny indeed. So much so that this may be one of the movies he remembers seeing. He's getting old and isn't as phat as he used to be. Often the only reason I bring him along is to let ols mrs Vargas dust out his armchair while he's gone. Oh, and he pays if I bring him along which is always good.
post #24 of 29
haha, he looked well chuffed to be in the cue... u should let varg snr tkae a look at more stuff with britney....what did he think of the foxy honey ms spears - i know it was a cameo but phoooor

(in Vince Mcmahon voice)

Dammit Leviathun! You just don't connect the two. I'd very much like to have my wily way with young Britney at some point and the last thing I need is for old Vargas snr to be a thought associated with the young minx. It was bad enough catching him watching Eurotrash. And he video recorded Emmanuel. The scars.

My eyes! My eyes are pies! (Another private joke)

Mulholland Drive sucks the big one.

Minority Report rocks.

Do not, I repeat do not see The Master of Disguise...worst movie of the year! (had to see it with the kids from work)

I just watched on theater MIB 2 : not masterpiece but rather entertaining . Did not regret the few bucks that we spent to watch it.

Just watched The Royal Tenenbaums...not a bad movie! Gene Hackman is great And yes, the really really short "lesbian" scene (where she grabs the breast of another chick) was good
