K-PAX
(2001)

I liked it!
Here I am at four o' clock in the afternoon and I feel terrible. I am starting to get a cold and my head is all stuffy. I can't concentrate. I decide to pop in a movie. At first glance I didn't know what to think. Will I enjoy it with my head feeling so screwed up? Is this worth watching? I like Kevin Spacey's movies so I had some expectations, I really didn't have many expectations? The trailer looked ok. After watching a few minutes, my fears were all dismissed! The movie seemed good. I was then hooked for 2 hours wondering what would happen. As the credits rolled I knew that I enjoyed K-pax! It has all of the aspects of a great movie! It keeps you entertained while it keeps you thinking. It has great acting! I honestly don't know who else could have done Prot so well. Finally it has a meaningful story! I don't want to spend a whole page telling you that this is a good movie, because you have to make that choice for yourselves! Please see this movie! I think that it was very well done!See K-pax, I promise you that you won't be dissapointed! 10/10 Great movie.

Pearl Harbor
(2001)

Great movie, don't know why people keep dissin' it!
(Please note that I watched the Director's cut dvd)

I didn't know what to think when I popped this into the old dvd player. To be honest I was worried. Everyone that I knew said that this movie "blew big time" and that I shouldn't see it. The funny thing was, no one person had the same reason for hating it! One said that it was inacurate, one said that it was long and boring and the other said that the love sucked! Yes, I will be honest, there were a few times when it got a little slow, but I still thought that it was a good movie! I know that many people hated the love story, but I think that it was needed. Yes it was overdone, but you can't make a movie just on a battle. Every movie needs some story and some characters to relate to. Now to get to the good stuff, the battle! I am not glorifying this attack. I just think that it was good for this movie to be made. This is an important part of ou history and we should learn about it. The battle scene was intense. I personally think that it was very realistic. I was on the edge of my seat for the rest of the movie. For the people who say that the scene was too long! That is what a battle is like! Battles can go on for hours! This made the movie that much more realistic. To me, a movie is good if it moves me. The battle moved me. I was shocked at dismayed to see how horrible the attack actually was. Textbooks are nothing compared to this!

All in all, the acting was pretty good, the story was good and the action scenes were very well done! Another thing that I liked was the ominous "Jaws" tone about the Japanese. You knew that they would come, but you didn't know exactly when. Please don't listen to my friends or the people who hate the movie. Many of them are immature for the love scenes and have very low attention spands. This includes my friends. Their movies have to have constant explosions and be no longer than 100 minutes long. Yes, I like those movies too, but they are not the only ones that I watch. To sum it up. Go see this movie! I really think that you will like it. It shows a very important part of out history and it entertains us all in 3 hours. What more could you ask for. 9.5/10 Great!

Vanilla Sky
(2001)

Great movie, the end alone is worth the admission!!
I will be honest when I say that when I plopped this into the dvd player, I had some mixed expectations. Many people have called this movie a huge flop, or they have said that it was horrible, and other things to that effect. I also knew in my head, that I never listen to what other people say about a movie. I always make my own opinion. Well after watching this, I can safely say that I am GLAD that I watched this. It was very, very good. The plot was excellent and kept you thinking long after the movie was over. Tom Cruise did a great job too. I really felt emotion for his character. I personally think that the person who did the best job would be Cameron Diaz. She really did a great job portraying her character. After countless movies of her being the dumb, cute, very friendly ditz, she is now the evil B++ch. I really hated her character in this movie, and that is good. That is how she was trying to portray her self. Now to the ending. Many people say that this is the worst part of the movie, but when you truly think about it, it all fits nicely to make a great movie. I think that everyone should go and see this. I don't think that you will be dissapointed. 10/10 GREAT!!!!

Shrek
(2001)

Very funny! Great movie!
The first time that I saw this I didn't know what to think. It was funny, but what was it supposed to be? After viewing it a second time, I now realize that this movie is great. All you have to do is take it for what it is, a spoof on fairy tales. If you do that, then you will have a great time watching this. Just like I did. There are so many funny scenes in this. I won't tell you any, becuase I really don't want to spoil anything. I think that the best aspect of this movie is that it appeals to all age groups. It is appropriate for kids, but it also has some hidden jokes that the adults will enjoy. The Computer animation is great, and I think in some cases rivals Toy Story. The casting was great too. I think that it was dead on! The actors are definately suited for their roles. All in all this is a great and funny movie that the whole family will enjoy. I really think that you should all go and see, no all go and buy this right away! It is that good. I don't think that you will be disapointed. 10/10 GREAT!!!!

Swordfish
(2001)

Great movie! Travolta is back!
When I first saw the previews for this movie, I thought, "Yeah, that looks cool, but... I really didn't like Gone in 60 Seconds." I didn't have the chance to see it in the theater, but I did buy the dvd. All I can say is, it was a good thing that I did! Unlike Gone in 60 Seconds,this movie is much more plot oriented. You need to pay attention to this movie to fully understand the plot. I really don't see how people can say that this plot is confusing. It makes sense as long as you watch and pay attention, just like all movies. Also, the action scenes are just incredible to watch, especially with the dvd that uses 5.1 sound. The ending and the villains motives will shock you! The movie will also cause you to contemplate many things once the movie has ended. By the way, Halle Berry looks amazing in the movie!

All in all this movie is just the epitome of cool, and it was definately one of the better action movies of 2001. Finally Travolta is back at what he does best. As a side note, this is a hell of a lot better then BATTLEFIELD EARTH,which by the way was not as bad as everyone said it was. I really think that you should see this, I don't think that you will be dissapointed.

9/10 Great.

Night Trap
(1992)

One of the coolest games ever!!
The first time that I had ever played this game was back in May of 1992. I had received this game and my Sega Cd as a First Communion present. I thought that this game was the greatest game ever. I have always been a movie freak, and this was like a dream come true. I felt like I was playing in the movie. That was really cool. Just be warned. The original Sega CD version is not rated and it has some blood. Now I am not some complainer that complains that kids get corrupted by video game violence. But I am just telling you in case you are! No offense. I mean I played this game when I was 9 and I turned out just fine. My parents told me about violence and how it is wrong. In the games and movies, it is all staged and fake. I knew that it was wrong. Some kids just flip out over this stuff I guess. Anyway, The game is very cool. If you like FMV games, then this is a must buy! If you aren't really a fan, check it out anyway, but if you hate FMV then don't get it. I'd say that this game is a 10/10. Sure, when compared to todays graphical standards it isn't that good, but remember that the game is 10 years old. Wow, has time flown by. The game is still fun today. How many times can you say that about old games? 10/10 Highly recommended.

Meng long guo jiang
(1972)

You got any Chinese Spare Ribs?!
My first Bruce Lee movie was Fists of Fury. I decided to check it out, because I like martial arts movies, and everyone has said that Bruce Lee was the ultimate badass. I wanted to see for myself.FIsts of Fury was good, but not great. I liked it. I then saw Chinese Connection. The fight scenes were cool, but the non-fighting scenes were a tad boring. Now I finally saw Return of the Dragon, and I must say that I really liked it. The plot was basic, but it held my interest. There was even a little comedy thrown in, and the jokes were actually pretty humerous. Now on to the best part, the fight scenes. Man were they great. Especially the end one between Colt (Chuck Norris) and Tang (Bruce Lee. It was very well done. The ending actually surprised me, and quite franky I wasn't expecting any surprises. I mean this is a martial arts movie. Well n, it isn't just a martial arts movie. It is a totally different experience. Before this movie, I thought that Jackie Chan was the martial arts master. Well no longer. He is still great, but now Bruce Lee is the master. Go and see this movie. I don't think that you will be disapointed. 9/10

Spider-Man
(2002)

Awesome! Awesome! Just friggin' awesome!
Wow! That just about sums up the experience that I had earlier in the theater. Just wow. Back when I saw x-men, I thought that it was the best comic to film movie ever made, but not anymore. That position goes to Spider-man. In fact, I would go so far as to say that this was the best movie of the summer. Well so far, but I hardly doubt that any movie this summer could top this and that includes Episode 2. Just flat out, I loved this movie. Yes, I am a true comic geek, but even if I had not read any comic in my life, I would have loved it. I know this, becuase my friend loved it, and he had never read any Spidey comic! The reason that this movie is so good is that it has great action, a great plot, great acting, and of course great directing. Sam Raimi nailed it on this one. It is almost exactly like the comic sans a few differences. I'll stop here, becuase I don't want to ramble on and on. Plus I am just wasting your prescious movie time. You could be watching this as I write. By the way, why aren't you watching this movie now??!! If you aren't then you are really missing out. My spidey sense is telling me that we have a winner on our hands. You need to see this. 'Nuff said! 10/10

Dr. Dolittle 2
(2001)

Very Cute, and in some ways even better than the 1st!
I really didn't know what to expect when I popped in the DVD. I mean,

I own the first and I liked it. It was cute, but only mildly funny. I had seen the previews for this movie, and it looked kinda dumb. I still wanted to see it, becuase I am a Eddie Murphy fan. I am really happy that I decided to see this. It was actually pretty funny. I actually found it funnier than the first. Eddie Murphy really got to be more like himself in this one. He told more jokes and was a lot funnier. Sure, some of the gags were childish, and parts of the plot are stupid, but in the end I enjoyed it. I think that you will too. 8/10 Not great, but you should still see it, or add it to your Dvd collection. I did.

Collateral Damage
(2002)

Awesome movie. One of Arnie's best!!!
Back in 99 when I saw End of Days I thought that it was a great movie. Now I have seen almost all of Arnie's movies(I am a huge fan) so I might be biased in saying that all of his movies are great. But they are!! When you see an Arnie movie you don't go to see the oscar acting. You go to see Arnie!! So yes EoD was a great movie. In 2000, I saw 6th day and I loved it. It reminded me of Total Recall. Now in 2002 I saw Collateral Damage, and it was Freakin awesome!! It reminded me of True Lies, and that doesn't happen often. Yes I did enjoy the 6th day and End of Days, but I will admit that when compared to Arnie's earlier work, they were a bit lacking. Collateral Damage blows both of those movies out of the water. This was a truly great Schwarzenegger movie!! The action was great! The story was very great, yeah, I can see why they postponed the release date! I think that every American should go see this and Root for Arnie and the USA! I personally believe that this is one of Arnie's best since True Lies. He is back and better than ever. This next year will be even better with T3 and True Lies 2. I can't wait for the DVD. It will be amazing. If you are an Arnold fan, see this movie, you won't be disapointed. If you are an action movie fan see this movie, you also won't be disapointed. And finally if you are anybody see this movie. You will love it. Long live Arnold and Long Live the USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 10/10 Great Flick!!!

Replicant
(2001)

Awesome Van Damme Movie!!!
I have always been a fan of Van Damme. I was one of the few who enjoyed his theatrical movies, and one of the few who like or have seen his DTV movies. In the past few years I was getting nervous. Sure I liked Van Damme, but some of the recent movies were getting kinda bad. Now I have only seen 1 or 2 truly bad movies, I usually like all movies that I see, because most of them have a great scene here or there. Lately some of the VD flicks were even getting kinda bad to me. I liked Universal Solder 2 but it was pretty bad when compared to his other flicks. I was a little leary about Replicant, but after the first few minuted I knew that everything would be OK.

I really enjoyed this movie! The plot was very cool and it kept you thinking and wondering what would happen next. Also Van Damme really acts in this movie!!! Unlike his other movies where he just kicks and punches to the plot he actually does some good acting. I really felt for the "Replicant." Unlike some movies that I have watched recently, this movie really held my attention. Uusually I am checking my watch but not this time.

To sum it up, I reallly think that you should see this movie. If you are a Van Damme fanatic you MUST see this. And if you are a Van Damme hater you Must see this. It is just that good. 10/10 best Van Damme movie ever!

The Fast and the Furious
(2001)

Started out slow but then it went into overdrive!
I did not catch this at the theaters. I own like 400 DVD's and I see a great number of movies so I can't catch them all in the theater. I knew that I would probably check this out when it came out on DVD. It looked cool, but not great. My friends told me that this was the coolest movie ever and it was the best that they had ever seen. After viewing it I must say that it wasn't the coolest movie ever, but it was pretty cool. All you have to do is just sit back, relax, and don't think. If you watch this and think a lot you might not enjoy it. The first 30 minutes I did just that, but then I started to get into the movie and just enjoy it. Af first it was a little slow, but then I really got into it and I stayed there. The driving scenes were really great. The stunts were unbelievable! All in all this was a cool movie that I think warrants a viewing if not a purchace. 8.5/10

Kook's Tour
(1970)

Not great, but it the LAST Stooge film ever made!!
I didn't know what to expect when I put this in the VCR. Yes, I am a fan of the 3 Stooges, but this was made in 1970 and not even finished (Larry suffered a stroke while filming, and could not continue to do so)so what would it be like. First off, it wasn't really funny. I will admit there were some parts that got me laughing, but nowhere near the extent of an original short. Second, be prepared for a bad transfer of the movie. Some parts are a little hard to watch because of the bad film elements, but believe it or not, this is the best version that you can find. The original negative was lost, (as is described before the start of the movie) so this is the best 8mm transfer (which was very hard to come by) that they could find. 8mm doesn't age well and this was well over 30 years old, so it is going to be in bad shape. I actually had fun watching this, but I almost cried at the end, because I knew that Larry had already suffered a stroke and the the Stooges would be no more. I think that every Stooge fan should see this and cherish it, because it is a piece of stooge history, and it is somewhat funny. You'll like the fishing scenes with Larry, they are the funniest scenes in the movie! People say that Norman Maurer (Moe's son in Law) did a bad job at finishing and directing the movie, because he tried to make it longer with scenery and Moose the dog. I think that he did a good job considering that he didn't have much to work with. After all Larry was in bad shape and he couldn't just replace him, so he tried to finish the movie as best as he could. All in all the movie was fun but sad to watch. 7/10 Stooge wise 7/10 movie wise

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
(2001)

Awesome.....just Awesome!!!
Wow..I just bought the first two books and I hope to read them very soon, so that I can compare the movie to the book. I have read the Hobbit and it really helped on the background of everything. Now on to the movie. It was great!! The most amazing thing is that it held my attention most of the time. Only once or twice did I check my watch but then I was back into the movie. In fact, I am contemplating on seeing it a second time, so that I can see the few parts that I missed. I CAN'T wait for the DVD. It's going to be awesome. The special effects were very good. It was amazing how they made the actors look like they were very short. The person that I was most suprised with was Ellijah Wood. I really didn't think that he would be able to do the part well, but he DID. Ian McKellen was awesome. He is the man. He also played the coolest Magneto in X-men. (another movie that I highly recommend) TO make a long story short, you really need to see this movie!!! 10/10

Jurassic Park III
(2001)

Good movie, full of great action and suspense!!
I was suprised when I saw this movie, because it was much better than I had expected. I mean, sure Joe Johnston is a great director and I loved the first two movies, but would the third one be any good? Would it even have a good story? Well, the answer to both of the questions is yes! I'll admit that the story isn't the most original, but it works well. The t-rex spinosaur fight was cool, but I just wish that it was longer. In fact, I wish the whole movie was longer. It clocked in at over 90 mins. Yes, the movie was great, but I think that it could have been a little better if it was just a little longer. Hopefully the DVD (Which I will buy when i comes out) will have some deleted scenes or additional footage. I know that I am being picky. Anyway, if you were a fan of the first two, or you just like good summer movies, then I suggest that you see this. I don't think that you will be disappointed.

Titan A.E.
(2000)

Very, Very Cool!!
First off I would have to say that this was a very cool film. I am a fan of cartoons and animation., and yes I am 17, so I'm basically a big kid at heart, but I don't care. I still enjoy watching good cartoons, especially ones like this, because they have a more mature story line. I have always enjoyed Don Bluth's work, especially when I was younger with The land Before Time, but I think that this was his best. The animation was great. The animation mixes very smoothly with the CGI effects. I even enjoyed the voices. They fit the characters perfectly. All in all if you enjoy animation, or sci-fi, then I recommend that you see this. I Think that you will like it. I don't think that you will be disappointed.

What Women Want
(2000)

Good Movie, somewhat funny, just a tad too long
I really didn't know what to expect when I watched this. I thought that it might be funny, but then I thought that it might be a girl movie. Well, I was partly right. Yes some parts were funny, and some parts of the movie were girly, but on the whole, I enjoyed the movie. The whole time that Mel can hear what women want is funny. There are just a few dull parts here and there. I think that most people will like this. I suggest that you go and see it..I don't think that you will be dissapointed.8.5/10

Space Cowboys
(2000)

Very good.
I really thought that this movie was going to be stupid. I mean old guys going into space, how exciting is that? Well it turn out that it is very exciting! Clint Eastwood is awesome. The man is 71 years old and he is still the ultimate badass. The man has not stared in a bad movie. Also I am a big fan of Tommy Lee Jones and James Garner. Besides being suprisingly action packed, the movie is also funny. Those glasses that Sutherland wears are hilarious. The funniest part is when they are on The Tonight Show. I really think that this movie was good, with good direction by Clint. The movie holds your interest for the 2+ hours that it runs. I highly suggest that you see this. It was really good. I don't think that you will be dissapointed. 10/10!

Frequency
(2000)

Great, just great!
I had wanted to see this when it came out, but I did not have the chance to. I eventually bought it on DVD, and I just watched it the other day. It was really good. I never lost interest in the whole two hours, and that is sometimes very hard. The plot was great. Imagine if you really could talk to your long lost relative that died and then change the problems that caused their death. I really enjoyed the way that the movie jumped between the decades. Dennis Quaid played a really good part. I have always enjoyed his work. If you enjoy good movies that warm your heart and keep you excited, then this movie is for you. Hell, even Mancow liked it, and he usually only likes horror movies. I highly suggest that you see this. I don't think that you will be dissapointed.10/10!!

Driven
(2001)

Very, Very, Cool!!!
I really didn't know what to expect when I went to see Driven. Sure, Stallone was/and still is one of my favorite actors. I liked everything that he did, Even when no one else would. I enjoyed Get Carter, but I DID notice that it was not at the quality of; let's say Cliffhanger or Demolition Man. So, I didn't know what to expect. I am glad to say that I came back pleasantly surprised. Driven is awesome. It DOES rank up there with Cliffhanger (also by Renny Harlin, who directed this movie) and Demolition Man. It is loud, action packed, exciting, and stars Stallone. I have been waiting a while to say that again. This IS one of Stallone's best. I think that everyone should see it, if even for the racing scenes and the crash scenes, because they are some of the best that I have seen. I have always like Harlin's work (even Cutthroat Island) and I would rank this too as one of his best. I highly recommend that people see this. I would give it a 10/10. I think that Sly is finally back. See it, I don't think that you will be disappointed. 10/10 AWESOME!!!

Fortress
(1992)

Pretty cool movie!!
When I popped this into the DVD player I was not sure what to expect. I had heard mixed reviews where most of the people said that this movie was really bad. I saw the box, it looked pretty good, and it only cost $9.99. Was it worth it? You Bet! I was presently suprised. The movie turned out to be decent. Sure, it won't win any awards for a new plot or acting, but for what it is, it is good. I don't see why many people label this as pure trash. This is just a popcorn/ guys action movie. It is not for people who want an academy award winning plot. For an action movie, I enjoyed it,and I think that is all that matters. As long as you enjoy it. Christopher Lambert was very good as his action hero, but stiff self. If you are a fan of Lambert, or of scifi/prison movies, then this movie is worth it. If not, who knows, you still might enjoy it. Just don't expect oscar performances. I Don't think you will be dissapointed. 8.5/10 pretty good!!!

Meet the Parents
(2000)

Very, Very Funny!
This was even funnier than I had expected it to be. Yes, at first it started off dry, but it got really good the second that they arrived at the "Parents" House. This is when all of the good comedy happens. Ben Stiller is very funny as the nice-guy boyfriend that at sometimes it seems that he can do nothing right. The reason it is funny is, because most guys can relate to this. All boyfriends get nervous and screw-up when they are meeting the parents. They will either say something that is totally wrong for the occasion, or they will make a fool of themselves. Also, Robert DeNiro was suprisingly funny too. I highly recommend this movie. I really think that you will enjoy it. After all, it was directed by Jay Roach, the guy who directed both Austin Powers, so you know that it will be amusing. I give it a 10/10! Great Movie!

Scary Movie
(2000)

Pretty Funny!
I didn't have a chance to see this at the show, so I rented it. Now, all of my friends said that this was the funniest movie ever. I personally don't find it to be THE funniest movie ever, but yes...it was very funny. I really liked how they spoofed dewey from Scream with Doofy. He was really funny. Just wait till you see some of the stuff that he does. When I get the chance I will buy this movie fro my own collecion. I don't suggest that anyone under 13 or 14 see this, because some of the jokes are very vulgar, and they probably won't understand them anyway. I don't see why people are labeling this as THE worst movie ever, because it is not. I think that you should see this. I don't think that you will be dissapointed. 9/10

Highlander: Endgame
(2000)

Pretty good....better than the other sequels!!
I had some low expectations going into this movie. Sure..I watched and liked the other highlanders, but this is the 4th one, so it is bound to be dumb right? Wrong! I actually liked this movie. Sure at some points it makes no sense, but after you watch it and talk it over with someone, everything comes together. Now I don't recomend this to anyone who has not seen any of the other Highlanders. Those people will be very lost. Before you diss this movie...make sure that you see the director's cut. I have not seen the theatrical cut but Ii have heard that is sucks. So, I recommend that you skip the theatrical and go see the director's.. It has good action..good plot...and it ties two highlander's together..which is cool. Plus, the villain in this highlander is actually cool. The one in 3 was just a copy from the one in 1. Anyway..I would suggest this movie to fans of the series, but remember to see the director's cut. I don't think that you will be disapointed. 8.5/10

The Cell
(2000)

Very, Very Bizzare!!!
Hmm....well....this was very bizzare. At first it was so bizzare that i didn't understand it. I started to get it towards the middle. It was an OK movie. I don't recommend that everyone see this. If you get grossed out or are a kid you should not see this, because it is very disturbing. While I was whatching this movie..I think that I said "what the...." many times. You will probably say the same thing too. Even though it is screwed up..the plot does make sense and the cinemotography is very good. I give it a 7.5/10 just because I thought that it was ok..and only good at some points, but very gross. It is totally up to you if you want to see this. 7.5/10

See all reviews
