Review: Kill Bill Vol. 1

April 24, 2004 at 10:29 PM

Rating: 4.5/5Get it from Amazon.com! Great movie. Watched it on DVD the other night and enjoyed it a lot. Wasn't really sure what to expect, I originally had no urge to watch it. It seemed pretty stupid in the previews. But Christina liked it, so I bought the DVD for her. There's not too many dull moments, the action comes early and often. Uma Thurman does a surprisingly good job in an action role. It... Continue reading

Review: iPod mini

March 22, 2004 at 01:27 PM

I've had my mini for almost a month now and I felt I should post my thoughts on it. Overall it's awesome. It works like a charm, easy to use, functional, stylish, easy to carry, and sounds great. I wear almost exclusively while working out, I don't really have many other occasions to listen to music. It's great in the gym. It clips easily onto waistband with the included belt clip. The earphones stay... Continue reading

Review: In the Cut

March 20, 2004 at 08:02 PM

Not a bad drama, although it did piss me off several times. Meg Ryan (Franny Thorstin) plays a bit of a nitwit. The typical female victim, she's always following unquestioningly into obvious danger. Walk through the ghetto all alone in the middle of the night? Sounds great! A strange man wants to take me in his car into the middle of the woods? Sure, why not? Are there women in the world that are... Continue reading

Review: School of Rock

March 10, 2004 at 01:19 AM

Watched School of Rock in class today, man I love teaching. No wait, I freaking can't stand it that's why I'm blowing it off and just showing movies. I really don't understand though how these stupid kids manage to be annoying and complain even on movie day. Just shut up and sleep if you don't like it. Argh. The movie is pretty good, I wanted to see it when it was in theaters but... Continue reading

Review: A Walk to Remember

March 09, 2004 at 01:16 AM

Rating: 2.5/5Get it from Amazon.com! Okay, I made fun of it a lot during the movie and I probably will take a lot of shots at it in this review, but honestly A Walk to Remember wasn't that bad. I mean it wasn't great and it was corny sometimes, but at least it was a good story and well acted. Mandy Moore (Jamie Sullivan) plays a girl dying of leukemia who is the stereotypical quiet,...

Review: Passion of the Christ

March 06, 2004 at 01:06 AM

I don't know exactly what I was expecting, but I came away from watching The Passion of the Christ with a lot of dissapointment. It was a good movie, but not as earth-shattering or shocking as I had been lead to believe. The reviews and uproar made it seem like it was going to be some sort of life changing event. It was a well shot, well acted, and accurate depiction of Christ's life,... Continue reading

Review: Underworld

February 23, 2004 at 01:00 AM

Not a bad movie, but certainly wasn't a very good one either. There was surprisingly little action considering it's a vampires vs. werewolves movie. Or maybe the action just wasn't very memorable. The story itself is pretty decent: an ancient war between the two species is continuing into modern times and we find out the origins of the war as well a possible conclusion. Definitely open for a sequel. Rating: 3/5Get it from Amazon.com!... Continue reading

Review: Angels and Demons

February 19, 2004 at 12:50 AM

Great, great, great book! I may have even liked this more than the Da Vinci Code, maybe it's because I'm not overly interested in art. Someone who really likes art would probably like that one more. I liked the female lead character (Vittoria Vetra) better in Angels and Demons, she added more to the story that Sophie Neveu. Plus I found the ambigrams really cool. It was paced really well and had a good... Continue reading

Review: Catch Me If You Can

February 19, 2004 at 12:43 AM

Watched Catch Me If You Can last night and I was really surprised by the movie. It looked interesting but I never had much urge to see it and I didn't think it was going to be great. It was pretty good though, real interesting story and plot twists. Leonardo DiCaprio (Frank Abagnale Jr.) did a really good job and Tom Hanks (Carl Hanratty) was excellent as usual. The best part was probably the... Continue reading

Review: Alex and Emma

February 13, 2004 at 12:38 PM

Rating: 1/5Get it from Amazon.com! Remind me again to NEVER let Christina choose the movie to rent. Or, at the very least, make sure that I actually read the Netflix reviews of it first. Holy crap was that a bad movie, 92 minutes of bad dialogue and an asinine plot. Pretty freaking predictable too. Kate Hudson didn't even look good in the movie, what's the point of her being in it at all then? Luke... Continue reading
