You're right. I don't.
The Creature From the Haunted Sea
A 60's "B" movie that needed Mike and the bots.
Hurt Locker 10/10
Can we talk about plays as well? Because I just got back from the Goodman Theater's performance of A Christmas Carol, and want to give the play a 10/10, but the experience an 8/10. Our seats weren't that good, and some elementary schoolers were there on a feild trip and were rather loud.
The Beverly Hillbillies
killing mr. griffin 3/10 i liked the book better
I'll give the Killing Mr. Griffin movie a Mike Dodd rating: Sucks Balls/10.
'Shoot 'em Up' - a ready made cult classic and one of my all time faves, with great perfomances and a crapload of fun. 9/10 - why only 9? The action is fun and terrific, but I would have loved a longer car chase.
Still, there are also plenty of stabs at 007 that I picked up, which was fun.
Macross Plus: Movie Edition - 8/10
I didn't think it flowed as well as the OVA episodes, but I did like the new sequences. Particuarly Guld's extended dogfight and the ending.
Where The Wild Things Are - 8/10
I just finished this about 5 minutes ago and am not certain how I feel about it right now. Of course, the nostalgia factor is pushing for a high rating, so I'll go with 7.5/10.
Last night the girlfriend and I were in a holiday mood and decided to watch the best Christmas film ever made: Die Hard. After all of these years, still a 7/10.
Avatar - 8.5/10 not the perfect movie, but hot damn the visuals are well worth the price of admission.
Batman (1989) - 3/10
I feel so disillusioned today. I remember loving this film. I saw it in the theater with my nephew 20 years ago (!!!) and couldn't get over how awesome it was. Saw it again in 95 or so and still loved it. Watched it last night and... pretty much had a hard time sitting through the whole thing. Stupidly written lines, dumb romance with no chemistry or even a reason to exist (sorry but Kim portrays little more than a vacuous easy blonde), extremely awkward looking Batman fights (the suit looks cool until you notice he can't move his head), aweful Prince songs that bring the film to a complete standstill and have absolutely no place in the film, and Bruce Wayne needs glasses? If Bruce Wayne needs to wear glasses to see than Batman would also need to wear glasses to see. I didn't even like Nicholson's portrayal of Joker very much - it just seemed unnatural, like he was trying too hard to be 'crazy'.
I do like the overall look of the film, and while Keaton's Wayne/Batman is dubious I do like him more than Christian Bale's Keanuesque portrayal. I also like the designs of the Batmobile and Bat-Jet. Overall though I have no reason to ever watch this film again.
"A Hard Day's Night." 8/10. Funnier than I thought it would be. And helmed by Richard Lester (Superman II, the Three Musketeers). Great movie.
Avatar 9.5/10, and I want to watch it again, and rate it again.
AVATAR - 8/10.
I'm gonna watch it again next weekend.
The Hangover- 7/10.
Pretty funny movie, too bad the trailers revealed pretty much everything in the movie.
surf's up 7/10
alivin and the chipmucks 6/10
I Love You, Man - 7.5/10
