saw jumper on friday, the special
effects and the overall idea of the
movie were cool, but the plot sucked

what’s her name in the movie looked
like she was perpetually sleep deprived
but mr. bad motherfcuker looked cool
with his white helmet of hair

Rambo 4:

Ummm...boring.  I mean, c’mon, just having Rambo mow down a bunch of people with a mounted machine gun is boring. 

There Will Be Blood:

Surely, a tribute to long dramatic montages of people walking around.  Slowly. 

Highly-overrated Oscar material.

“Blind Dating’ - very sweet and meaningful, but of course, predictable
“The Invisible” - it was alright. good attempt on the story, but very cheesy at times
“Definitely, Maybe” - cute and sweet!

^ Ugh the trailer was a complete lie; it took an hour + before the lawn started turning red. Though, they paid some cool homage to Taxi Driver.

I agree with KFC about There Will Be Blood. Despite great acting & cinematography, I was indifferent to the plot, and much more so to the characters themselves.

StarDust was surprisingly awesome, esp. with Claire Dane’s character as a fallen star. Makes you kinda want to find love and hate dead baby jokes.

I forgot about that...saw that this weekend too.

Wasn’t the music weird and a bit too dramatic at times?  raspberry

“Sicko” = disturbing and depressing
“Eastern Promises” = good/interesting story
“Eyes Wide Shut” = weird and i do not need to see it again

I caught Jurassic Park on TV.  It is definitely in my top 5 movies of all time, I forgot how good it is.

I have this weird urge to see Princess Mononoke again.

The Big Lebowski was disappointing...I was expecting some big things from Jeff Bridges.
