movies

i've always been a movie person. i dont watch tv bc i have a somewhat busy schedule. as i was told once, my schedule should not revolve around tv. so i dl the ep, watch it online or/and watch the series on dvd. you know, watch it on my free time. it fits better that way. but i've always made time for movies. i like watching movies. i'm not sure why. it could be bc of the bigger screen, nicer sound system and the junk food... maybe. just maybe. or maybe bc i cant wait for the movie to come out on dvd. but either way, i dont mind wasting my money on it. even if it was the worse movie of the century.

for a while now, all the movies i've watched were "ok." none has really hit it for me. none where i would go "i'm so buying the dvd." none that kept me entertained. but that has changed. maybe for the lack of good movies, i caught myself watching a few good movies the past week (yes i watched all of them in one week)... all which i would like to recommend.

ratatouille
i am a pixar fan. i collect all their movies. i thought their first few were awesome. but then i thought they lost their touch (at least for me) when the incredibles came out. that movie was alright but i had to watch it a few times for me to like it like the others, for it to grow on me.

cars was worse. no offense to ppl who liked it but i thought it was almost "below average." i mean i didnt hate it but i didnt think it met with my pixar standards. maybe my standards are too high. maybe i need to watch it a few more times so it'll grow on me. but i havent even watched the dvd i owned yet. not once.

but for ratatouille. it was just... amazing. it's like monster inc all over again. where i dont mind watching it over and over in the movie theatre. the story line was good/original. it was funny. it was entertaining. just... you have to see it.

live free or die hard
i had no intention in watching this movie but went anyway. heck, i'm a movie person and i heard nothing but good of this movie.

all i have to say about this movie is "yippie kai yay." this movie has kept me at the edge of my seat throughout the whole movie. it's practically non-stop. i feel out of breath JUST watching him. i have to admit the ending was no bang but i like how he ended it :)

ocean's 13
i loved ocean's 11. i loved the interaction with daniel and rusty. i love how everything fell into place at the end of the movie. it was good. but then came ocean's 12, most would agree, wasnt as good. it was so bad i didnt even buy the dvd. but of course, i had to watch ocean's 13. i had a good time watching this. maybe it's a vegas thing. maybe only the ocean team can only be their best at the casinos? maybe i liked it bc it's the same actors for the same characters. it's not as good as ocean's 11 but still not bad at all. i would say definitely watch it once. but you wont regret watching it whether it is on the theatre or on dvd. it's a fun movie.

transformer
i've owned a few of their toys. ok i take that back, my brother did. but i never watched the cartoons. i also had no interest in watching this movie until i saw the trailer. i knew i had to see it. the graphics were awesome. shia labeouf's character was great. there were a number of witty /funny moments. the graphics were great. the plot was alright but with all the action and stuff, who cares haha but there were a few times it went so fast i was like "huh." but over all, GOOD. did i mention the graphics were awesome?

if you're looking for a good time, take yourself and maybe a special someone or two out and go catch one of these movies. or two... or all of them.

as for me. i will buy 3 out of the 4 movies when it comes out on dvd. well technically, i would only get 2 as i know my brother would get one of them for sure :)

I saw ratatouille last night. I thought it was the worse of all the Pixar movies because the plot was so thin you could see through it. It had no significant meaning and was just mindless (althought it probably did hook a lot of kids into wanting to learn how to cook) Not to mention the CGI was the laziest out of all the Pixar movies. I thought Incredibles was good even though they ripped the plot from an indie comic.

I plan on watching Transformers soon ust because it's TF, and I have no interest in either Die Suck Another Shitty Sequel or Oceans 69 the Circle Jerk Gang.

you didnt enjoy ratatouille?

well i have to admit that it's obvious it'll end happy but i would've never have guessed what happened with the whole last meal thing (i'm trying to say this without spoiling the movie lol)

ok i'll just email you about that lol

as for no meaning, i beg to differ. it's about pursuing your dreams despite who you are. when it seemed impossible for a certain someone to reach that dream bc of their origin, with a little help, support and hope, you could do it. even when your family is against it and it's looked upon negatively by society.

It was entertaining but not worth the reivews people have been giving it. I also wouldn't want to watch it over again. However, I will say that it is better than Spider-man 3, Shrek 3, and POTC 3, which all sucked greatly.

I thought the entire movie was too simplistic when compared to previous Pixar films and it viewed like a generic kiddie cartoon as oppose to a more mature cartoon that both kids and adults can appreciate, learn from, and enjoy.

When I first heard about Cars I thought it was the dumbest movie ever, and it was for the first 30 mins. But then it really changed. A good movie does two things: it alters the state of emotions and attitudes in both the character(s) and the audience. And there's maturation and development. I felt that previous Pixar films did that, and it was what was lacking in Rat.

What else can you take away from this movie beside what you mentioned above, which is the most shoved-in-your-face-obvious-duh! that anyone could have gotten by just watching the trailer?
