I am Sam (Just a Quickie)

Hey guys, sorry it's been awhile. I just watched I am Sam today for the first time in law today and I have to say that it was amazing. I'm shocked that it didn't get a best picture nomination. Now, Dakota Fanning definitely deserved an Oscar nomination and Sean Penn deserved to win. I thought his performance was much better that Denzel Washington. Heck, Sean Penn was even better than Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man. So I just wanted to do a quick review and I'll probably make a more in depth one when I have the time.

Sweeney Todd - Dark, Demented, Twisted and Loving It

Once again the disturbing dark duo Johnny Depp and Tim Burton are back at it again in Sweeney Todd.

Sweeney Todd is a man unjustly sent to prison who vows revenge, not only for that cruel punishment, but for the devastating consequences of what happened to his wife and daughter. When he returns to reopen his barber shop, Sweeney Todd becomes the Demon Barber of Fleet Street who "shaved the faces of gentlemen who never thereafter were heard of again."

Helena Bonham Carter as Ms. Lovett with Johnny Depp as Sweeney Todd

This may be too dark for some viewers but for someone like me, I find it amazing. From the opening scene, where Ms. Lovett bakes her revolting meat pies, to the end the film delivers it's quirky dim humor. The combination of Depp, Carter and Burton really makes this film what it is. You can really tell that all three of them have a great understanding of one another which makes each one of them be able to bring something to the table as well as being able to blend it together.

The greatest thing about this movie is that it is able to bring horror and musical together in a way that few films can. The only other horror musicals that I can think of is The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Repo! Although I feel that the storyline is good enough without the musical aspect but it does add a nice kick to it.

As for the singing I feel that most of the actors did a good job but not a wow job. However I did enjoy Ed Sanders (Toby).

I feel that the strongest point of the movie was the end because it gives you this depressing feeling that grows on you.

Sweeney Todd is a film that I'd recommend watching because the cast does do a really good job and surprisingly Sacha Baron Cohen does a pretty good job as the wacky barber.

Letter Grade
C+ I felt that it was a good enough job but not as good as some other musicals.
Performances: B This took some strong character acting and everyone did a great job.
Setting: A It sets the mood completely. I'm glad it won for best art-direction.
Overall: B+ It has definitely earned it's right as a new classic.

Weird Video Games Coming to the Big Screen

The first movie may not be that weird of an idea since there was a previous one. However it is a video game movie and that movie is Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li. All you Smallville fans can be excited to see Kristin Kreuk as the main lead. It will also star Taboo (Black Eyed Peas) as Vega, Chris Klein (American Pie) as Charlie Nash and Robin Shou (Mortal Kombat) as Chun Li's master. Sadly I'm disappointed to say that Ryu and Ken will not be featured in the movie. Aaron Horwitz (the epk producer) quotes "Ken and Ryu will not be appearing in this film. But, that doesn’t mean we wont see our red and white-clad heroes in potential sequels…". If the movie does well who knows we might just see them.

There was another strange title I saw on IMDB. It was The Sims Movie. I love the Sims and I think it's a great game but I'm a little bit worried how the movie will turn out. It will be written by Brian Lynch (who is also writing the script for the Shrek spin-off Puss in Boots). Cross your fingers!

Lastly the champion of the weirdest video game turn movie is Dance Dance Revolution. That's right that's what I said. DDR is going to be a movie. I have no information on it at the moment but I will definitely be keeping an eye on it.

So there you have it some weird movies coming out. I can't wait to see how they turn out.

Bernie Mac's death is insufficient compared to Heath Ledgers

October 5 1997 - August 9 2008

Okay I don't if you have ever been on the boards for but it is a great site to chat to other people about actors and movies. However there are a few times where it can be absolutely disgusting. When I found out about Bernie Mac's death of course I went to his page on and when I gazed upon his boards I could see horrible topics about the death of actors. People were actually comparing Bernie Mac's death to Heath Ledger. Some were saying that Ledger's death is more tragic then Mac's. Now this really started to grind my gears. How can you compare deaths? Is one person more sufficient than the other. No! All deaths are sad and they should never be compared. This year we lost three great actors, that I am aware of, Bernie Mac, Heath Ledger, George Carlin and plenty of more that I am not aware of.

April 4 1979 - January 22 2008

It's not even just the comparison of deaths that anger me. There is one board that quotes "Why couldn't it have been Cedric the Entertainer?". They actually were referring that another person should die instead. We are all human beings, sure death might be cool in movies or even funny on shows like Family Guy. In real life there is no laughter or oohs and aahs when someone dies. There are only tears from the family and friends who have lost someone close to them.

May 12 1937 - June 22 2008

It just sickens me how people could be so cold.

Upcoming Movies - Students Killing one another

Here is a movie spin-off that is coming soon that I thought I should let you know about.

It is none other than Battle Royale. I don't know if you have ever heard of it but it was an extremely controversial novel, written by Koushun Takami, that was later on turned into a Japanese cult classic movie. Battle Royale is about a high school class that is forced to kill each other. Although it is not guaranteed that this one will be made, because of the Virginia Tech Massacre (for obvious reasons). The original one is an excellent movie that dealt with student relationships, guns, love, hate and more. It is definitely one my top favourite films. If you ever get a chance to go to Japan, make sure to grab the DVD. If your lucky they might have it at a Chinese night market.

Also if you loved Kill Bill. The actress who plays Gogo Yubari is in it.

This year's summer movies

I want to hear what you think are the best summer films of the season. Personally my fave this year is The Dark Knight. Not watching the last Batman film, I had no idea of what to expect. I knew for sure however that Heath would give an outstanding performance. However, I was shockingly surprised to see the Academy Award Winner for Best Picture. It is really that good. What do you guys think? Which is the best movie of the summer? Is it Iron Man, Indiana, Mamma Mia, Stone Angel or whatever? Tell me what you think is the best movie for summer 2008.

August Rush makes everyone believe again

I know it has been awhile since I have put up a review on my site but here is a movie that just makes you feel so inspired to follow your passion. The film I am reviewing today is August Rush.

It has been a long time since I have seen film that makes you feel this good. The cast does a wonderful job showing their belief in music.

Having shared one extraordinary night, cellist Lyla Novacek (Keri Russel) and rock sing Louis Connelly (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) were a fairytale couple that was broken up by unfortunate circumstances. Eleven years later, both are miserable and share a feeling of incompleteness. Evan (Freddie Highmore) is the son that both of them never knew they had. He too feels incomplete. Evan knows that he can find his parents through the power of music, one day he stops and listens and follows the music.

This movie has a sort of magic to it. For me, Robin Williams really stands out in this movie playing the villainous "Wizard". He was creepy and malicious with all the kids and should have been nominated for at least a Golden Globe. As for the rest of the cast, Freddie Highmore is cute and definitely shows his passion for music throughout the film. There is once scene with Freddie Highmore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers that was really nice and well executed.

As for the music, it was wondrous. The songs had so much passion and emotion in it, even the orchestra music seemed to have voice in it. Jamia Simone Nash hopefully one day will release a record of her own one day (hopefully RnB and not a pop one).

This movie was definetly one of the better ones of 2008 and is definetly worth renting or even buying. August Rush reminds you that it's not impossible to reach your dreams. Your dreams can become a reality if you work hard for it.

Cast: A-

Music: A+

Storyline: A-

Message: Exquisite

My Oppinions on "Torture Porn"

Movies such as the Saw series and the Hostel series are movies that shouldn't be judged by the storyline. It should be judged on how realistic the gore is. I mean honestly when you watch these movies, you don't expect it to win any Academy Awards. The only reason why we watch these films is because we want to see a bunch of idiotic teens and young adults get mutilated from bit by bit. So who cares if the storyline bites all we need is some good blood splattering fun.

The reason I'm writing this because I always here reviewers criticize the storylines. I just think that reviewers need to look at these films in a different way.

It's been awhile but here's number 7 to the Top Disney List


I found Toy Story 1 and 2 both equally good. The first one had great moments with Sid, he was a great start to the Toy Story villians. Then of course you get the sweet mellow sounds of "You've Got a Friend in Me" by Randy Newman. How many times have your kids sang that song. Then you get Toy Story 2 with the feisty cowgirl, Jessie, who is the main reason that Toy Story 2 did so well. When she sang "When She Loved Me", I'm pretty damn sure that everyone that watches that scene is filled up with tears or at least gets a lump in their throat. So those are my two picks for number seven. I really couldn't pick one as better film because they're just so great.

Just to let fans know, it is confirmed that there will be a Toy Story 3. Hopefully it can live up to both these films.

Something A Little Different

Instead of me reviewing another movie I thought I should make a blog about really good performances by actors/actresses in movies that I feel will win an Oscar in the future.

Evan Rachael Wood

She is beautiful and talented. Her performance in Thirteen was outstanding, she should have been nominated for that one. I mean if Abigail Breslin could get nominated for Little Miss Sunshine, Wood could definitely win one for that role. Then we get her in Across the Universe. Her character, which is not that hard to portray, is still enjoyable to watch. I still have to see Running With Scissors and The Life Before Her Eyes but just those two performances on their own have already won me over.

Top Ten Disney Films 10-8

8. Aladdin

This is an amazing tale by Walt Disney. Robin Williams helps make this film a classic. The song "I Can Show You the World" will now be used continuously by American Idol contestants. Not only was this an amazing movie but then later on became a very successful musical.

9. Mulan

It's the only Disney female who knows how to kick some hunny buns. I mean come on the beautiful music and the great battles. This is definitely going to be one Disney classic you wont forget. With beautiful music from the young Christina and the hilarious comments by Eddie Murphy.

10. Snow White

Snow White was the start of all the Disney films. Without it we'd have none of the classics we'd have today. Who can forget the way the queen walked down those dark stairs or the creepy mirror that told queen that she was not the fairest of them all.

The Mangler: Reborn mangles its viewers to boredom

Not seeing the first two Mangler films I was not sure on how this one would play out. After seeing this one, I don't think I'm even going to bother watching the other two. This movie is by far the worst horror movie I have ever seen.

An old laundry repairman tries to fix the old laundry machine from the first movie. Somehow he mysteriously gets possessed by the machine and becomes the machine. In order for the machine to survive it must drink human blood.

This movie has some of the worst acting I've ever seen. It's almost as if it was directed by some amateur youtube director. The cast obviously has no sense of direction as to how to portray their characters. Even though none of their parts is exactly challenging they still could not portray their characters. It is almost pathetic to watch their attempts at acting.

The camera work is also crappy. It is completely obvious when they switch from night vision to the regular version. The machine it self looked like some college kids art project. Just a bunch of knive glued to random handles.

Overall, this film was beyond boring and was complete crap. The only reason why this film was made was to make money off the last two. If they even made money......

Acting= F+ Horrible

Camera Work=F- Beyond Horrible

Overall: F

The Descent: Descends far more into the horror genre

Finally it's something we haven't seen in a long time. A horror movie that's actually good. The Descent (Directed by Neil Marshall) is a horror movie that could probably be included with the classics. I'm not joking it's that good. The cast, although not famous, did a good job at portraying their characters.

The Descent is about six girls that accidently go into an unknown cave and find themselves battling with fear, past grudges and demonic beings. The one thing that I really liked about this film was that the creatures weren't the most scariest part of the film. Personally I found that the most creepiest part of the film was being trapped in complete darkness. Of course, there are so many other fears that were captured here such as claustrophobia, heights and (of course) the monsters.

The coolest part of the film is that it could be interpreted in so many different ways. I won't give any spoilers but I do suggest that you watch the U.K. ending because it's so much better than the North American one.

As for the cast, they all did a great job. The characters that stood out of my mind were Holly, portrayed by Nora Jane Noone, and Juno, portrayed by Natalie Jackson Mendoza. Holly, the athletic arrogant character, added some fun to the cast and Juno was perfect at being two-faced.

The Descent is one fun thrill ride that will surely be able to creep you out whenever you're in the dark.

Cast= B+ Really good by everyone

Creepy Monsters= A Definetly creepy enough for me

Overall= A- One of the few scary modern movies out there. Definetly check it out.

Q: How do you give a lemon an orgasm?

Meet The Robinsons travels to far from other Pixar films

Meet The Robinsons (Directed by Stephen J. Anderson) is slightly better than I expected but not by much. This movie was extremely predictable. There were no surprises whatsoever. However there are a few scenes that were cute but still most of it was meh.

Lewis is a brilliant inventor who meets a mysterious stranger named Wilbur Robinson, that whisks Lewis away in a time machine and together they team up to track down the Bowler Hat Guy in a showdown that ends with an unexpected twist of fate. The lines are cheesy. Nothing in this film was really that memorable. The only part that I kind of liked was the T-Rex squealing "'I can't. Cause I have a big head and little arms."

This film was ok. They tried to throw in a few twists but they were completely obvious. If you want to see some really great Disney 3D animations watch Finding Nemo or Monster's Inc.

Twists: C+ Nothing that great

Overall: C A few moments here and there but overall not that great.


I just wanted to let you know that my reviews can be commented on. So you can tell me what I'm doing well on and what I need to improve on. So please feel free to comment.

Enchanted enchants your heart

Enchanted is a cute film that is fun for children and people of all ages. The story of Enchanted is about how an innocent and bubbly princess, Giselle (Amy Adams), falls in to a world that is far more dangerous and obscure than any other universe. NEW YORK! Giselle must somehow find her way back to her kingdom to marry her Prince Edward (James Marsden). Of course having no home to go to, she finds herself staying with a single father and his daughter.

The Movie Enchanted has a lot of parodies from past Disney princess films (Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, etc.) but somehow finds it way to create an original story. Some jokes though are age appropriate and may offend some parents but overall stays very close to its PG rating. The jokes mostly consist of the weirdness of fairy tale characters blending in with New York which works well for the movie.

Once again Alan Menken was able to produce some excellent original scores plus three Oscar Nominations. The songs are catchy and probably will get your kids to beg you to buy the soundtracks.

Overall, I found Enchanted to be quite enjoyable. At first I thought it'd be Disney trying to rip-off its past success with all the other Disney films but it has it's own way to add its own flavour. Amy Adams performance as the typical Disney princess was absolutely wonderful. I think we can all agree that we will see great things from her in the future.

Cast: B+
All did a good job.

Music: A
Come on it is Disney.

Overall: B
Fun enjoyable to watch and great for a family night.


This is my first blog so I am still new to this. What I plan to do in the future is to write reviews on different movies whether it'd be a classic or a new release. I plan on sticking to videos that are already released rather than a movie that is in theatres. Personally I feel that there are so many other sites that have reviews on new movies. I hope to one day become a professional critic but for now I hope you enjoy my reviews.
