I am biased toward dancing movies, I just love all of them, Dirty Dancing( the original and the sequel), Fame, Save the Last Dance, Step Up (and the sequel)just to mention a few. Center stage is in that group and extremely well done. I can't to see the sequel. The dancing numbers in this movie are phenomenol, the stories behind the dancers are excellent too. I watched this movie grinning the whole time. Just loved it.
The last movie I saw of his was The village and that was disappointing but the description of this movie intrigued me so I rented it. Like Sixth Sense and signs, this one was very well done. The premise of what was happening in the world didn't make much sense but it wasn't supposed to. The movie was about how people were dealing with something that didn't make sense and how and what they would do to survive. I enjoyed this movie, and thought it was very well done.
This was an excellent movie. The description on the DVD cover leads you to think its' a porn movie but it isn't at all. It has a few sexy scenes in it but its' ultimately a story of both filmmakers ( college students) and what they go through to complete an assignment which ends up earning them an award in the porn movie industry, similar to an oscar for regular films. It was funny, I found myself laughing at several spots, poignant, and cute. It also told a good story and just plain enjoyable.
Well the movie jacket says its a comedy. Its' a drama and its' depressing. This movie thinks its' funny and its' not. Its' cliche, sad, and the whole time I was watching it, all I was thinking was when will it be over, I am hating this moive, but still watched through to the end. I have to admit, I did like the ending but all the time it took to get there and how the movie got there was just disappointing and sad. NOt worth the rental.
The movie was awesome. Yeah... there were some
parts that were not in the movie, and
even parts that were added that were not
in the book but that is to be expected.
The parts that were not in the book and were
added to the film actually made it a little
bit better because you have the building of
James and his coven throughout the movie. As for
the parts that were not in the movie and in the
book.... I didnt even realize they were not there
until the end of the movie. The movie included
humor and serious parts that were a great balance, and
kept your attention throughtout the whole movie.
This series is going
to be amazing in all the films. Cant wait for
the next one!
The tale of Bella and Edward.......Who does not love this story? I know that the book 'Twilight' was, and still is, my favorite book. Since high school I have been looking forward to this movie. My opinion? It was decent. I know that there's only so much you can do with two hours of film, but I believe that they could have followed the story line a little bit better. Things that weren't even in the book ended up in the movie. I was watching, and was questioning the story almost the entire time. Specific events and happenings in the book were jumbled beyond my belief. I guess I'd say it was worth going to see. I've been a dedicated 'Twilight' fan for years. And since the movie IS based on the book, it's worth it. Just don't keep your hopes up too high when you go to the theater.
I know i have tis under action, but it can go under comedy also.This movie was hilarious, and the funny scenes just kept on rolling.Steve Carell stars in this movie, along with Dwayne Johnson, and Anne Hathaway.He plays Maxwell Smart,who is very intelligent, but messes up alot.he detects things that just arent right with the orchestra that plays for the president.when the national anthem would hit a certain note, the bomb would explode...
I give this a 5 ***** star review. I reccomend this to anyone that likes action-packed comedy!
I went into this film just like every other Bond fan thinking that it was going to be something of a good movie and it was a real let down. I was particularly disappointed because of the fact that this was the first Bond film to be a direct sequel of the one before it. Most Bond movies were just Bond on another mission to stop the world from being dominated while sleeping with the gorgeous women along the way and they tend to be made in a formula style. I had hopes for this one because of the fact that it could have been different but really wasn't.
I really enjoyed Casino Royale because it didn't stick with the typical Bond formula and showed that Bond can be portrayed in a different light while still being suave and bad ass. Then with Quantum of Solace they brought it back to being about action scenes with very little story. The story had a good premise behind it but when you think you were going to get story to help you understand what happened you get thrown into another set of action sequences and don't get me wrong they are entertaining but it leaves no room for anything else to happen other than Bond being put into action scenes. Don't get me wrong I enjoy a good action flick but when you can almost say that there is too much action that's when it is a problem.
Usually in a Bond film you have the beautiful Bond girl do more than almost nothing throughout the film but this one doesn't have a script long enough to be there for any other reason to be there other than being a pretty face. Now getting to the story it is not hard to understand what is going on even though you never get enough time to get a full story setting in. You know whats funny, I think Judi Dench who plays M as a supporting role has more dialogue than Daniel Craig playing Bond the lead.
Daniel Craig is a really good Bond and continues to do well in the role but this time around they really didn't give anything to do than be in action sequences. I think I can understand why Daniel Craig wanted to do his own stunts because if he didn't he wouldn't have been in much of the movie. I wish they would have done it the same as they did in Casino Royale even though the film was directed by Marc Forester instead of Martin Campbell who directed the prior film. The way I see it is that for this film they wanted to make an ction film and in light of that forget to put in a story because the story feels forced in there like it was not in the original plan. If you liked Casino Royale you might like this one but to think that it might be as good or better than Casino Royale you will highly disappointed.
If you feel like wasting time and watching something distastefully done and gory then Pathology is just for you.
In a typical Hollywood Horror fashion, we see a lot of blood, people's insides on the outside and almost too graphic sex scenes.
The way I see it, the actors did the best they could with their parts but the enormous leak in the script is just there and no amount of acting talent could make up for it.
Ventimiglia and Weston give good performances and almost manage to make the movie exciting near the end.
The main idea of the so called plot is apparently the nature of human kind and what people are capable of doing - an idea that is fast becoming overused and in this movie it's not even that well done.
To sum it up - I wouldn't recommend this movie to any person whom I find completely sane but then again Pathology managed to make me wonder - Are there sane people at all or is the making of such movies proof that people are indeed sick to their very core.

Quantum of Solace (PG) * * * *
Back in Bondage!
By ROBERT WALDMAN
Global film fans around the world can rejoice. Proving that his first outing as agent 007 was no fluke Daniel Craig renews his license to kill (and thrill) in Quantum of Solace, a rousing adventure from MGM Columbia Pictures now burning up screens at Oakridge Cinemas, Scotiabank Theatre, Esplanade 6, Empire Studio 12, Colossus and Famous Players Silver City theatres across the globe.
Fret not over the somewhat awkward title to this film. Derived directly from a series of short stories written by creator Ian Fleming back in 1960 Quantum of Solace takes off where Casino Royale left off. Angry over the death of main squeeze Vesper Lynd our man Bond decides to track down who was responsible for the murder. Against the advice of his handler M this Ã¢â‚¬Å“rogueÃ¢â‚¬Â agent scans the globe in hopes of getting at the truth. Naturally, all those fits of rage lead 007 into more intrigue and even greater danger.
Quick trips to exotic locales such as Haiti, Austria, Italy, Peru and Bolivia are only a few stopovers in this man(or woman) hunt. Ultimately Bond learns of the involvement of a ruthless businessman named Dominic Greene who is as rotten as they come. Plans in South America have something to do with a mysterious organizationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s efforts to control the oil supply of Bolivia or some other Latin American country. On hand to make this all possible is a corrupt general and plenty of international corporate powers ready to gobble up all the loot about to be generated. FoolÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s folly when you go up against James Bond.
Brand new locations and a sense of excitement take us back to the location work from the 60s when the Bond films gripped the world by storm. New director Marc Forster (MonsterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ball) has a field day with all the action here which comes at you hot and heavy. All those quick edits may leave some dizzy with all the marvelous mayhem that occurs at breakneck speed.
And yes, there are girls. Main squeeze of sorts is Camille, a feisty Latin charmer played perfectly by Ukrainian born Olga Kurylenko. Cast as the madman Dominic Greene, a businessman cut from the same cloth as Auric Goldfinger, is the marvelous French actor Mathieu Amalric (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly).
As always, Daniel Craig (Layer Cake) is steady as a rock. Without question the best Bond since the original Sean Connery CraigÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s presence here is undeniable and definitely the guy you want in your corner should a fight erupt. Yes, there are lots of fights in this movie and the Aston Martin gets a grueling workout as well.
106 minutes flies by from the moment go in this heart-pounding extravaganza that true James Bond fans and new converts should embrace with open arms.
