2.0 out of 5 stars nothing to write home about, June 9 2010
This review is from: Prozac Nation (DVD)
for me,Prozac Nation was just blah.it didn't engage me on any level.i didn't care about the main character,or any of the characters,for that matter.i just didn't see the point of it.usually after watching a movie,i come to this site soon after and put in my two cents.this time i couldn't really be bothered until now,almost two weeks later.anyway,suffice to say,i didn't get anything out of the movie.basically i lost ninety five +/- minutes i'll never get back,in which i could have been doing something else more productive.if you do end up watching this movie and manage to get to the halfway point,and decide to watch to the end,(like i did)thinking it will get better,trust me,it won't.but that's just my opinion.for me,Prozac Nation is a 2/5

3.0 out of 5 stars certainly not as bad as i had heard, June 9 2010
while i wouldn't call this a side splittingly hilarious comedy,i did chuckles two or three times at a few of the lines.i expected it to be much worse than it was.but it's actually watchable.and i don' think it's anywhere near as bad as i had heard it was.sure,there were a lot of jokes that came off flat or awkward.and the story could have been a bit more fleshed out.but Hugh Grant(who i like) and Sarah Jessica Parker(who i usually can't stand)are both likable enough.but i really liked Mary Steenburgen as Emma Wheeler.she was perfect for that character.in my opinion,she stole the show in her scenes.Sam Elliot as Clay Wheeler,on the other hand,did nothing for me.overall the movie was entertaining.for me,Did You hear About the Morgans is a 3/5

5.0 out of 5 stars great stuff, May 23 2010
i had high high expectations for this film,since the first one was so good.i'm happy to say i wasn't disappointed.there is more going on this one that much is certain.Sam Jackson returns as Nick Fury head of Shield in a expanded role.Mickey Rourke plays a baddie(with relish and gusto)Scarlett Johanssen's character is underwritten and underutilized,which is unfortunate,because the character is rife with potential.here's hoping they remedy that situation in the upcoming avengers film.Sam Rockwell has an interesting role.Don Cheadle replaces Terrance Howard as Lt.Colonel James "Rhodey" Rhodes,and i have to say,i think he is a better fit.and of course Robert and Gwyneth return as Pepper and Tony.and we finally get to know Pepper's actual first name.for me,Iron Man 2 is a 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars "leave the gun,take the cannoli", April 12 2010
This review is from: The Godfather (DVD)
much has been said about how great this film is,and i hesitated for the longest time before breaking down,but finally i bought the Restoration Box set which contains the three films and two bonus discs.so,after watching this first film,i must say i was pretty impressed.it's a well crafted film.at a running time of just over one hundred and seventy three minutes,you'd never know it.there never a dull moment.it's exceptionally engrossing from the opening frame to the closing credits.the acting is superb.Marlon Brandon is excellent,but i would say that a young Al Pacino matches him.the dialogue is also well written.for me,The Godfather is a 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars as good as the original, April 12 2010
This review is from: The Godfather, Part II (DVD)
usually sequels are not as good as the original film,but in this case it's pretty close.this one is about 25 minutes or so longer(about 196 minutes)and it does feel a bit long on occasion.but it's just as engrossing as the original.i think the story has more depth to it.there's much more going on.the movie jumps back in forth in time.minor spoiler ahead***Robert De Niro is brilliant as a young Vito Corleone***end of spoiler.Al Pacino Returns as Michael Corleone.the supporting cast is great,as well.i'd say this film rivals its predecessor,despite the few moments where it seemed it bit too long,due to the story being better.for me,The Godfather: Part II is a 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars fine conclusion to the saga, April 12 2010
in my mind the final installment in the Godfather series is as good as the previous two,yet most people don't seem to think so.i think the story is great.this is a more subtle movie,and more cerebral than the other two.it's very well written,in my opinion.AL Pacino Is back as Michael Corleone,and is great once again,but Andy Garcia is outstanding as Vincent,as is Sofia Coppola as Mary Corleone.it was made sixteen years after part two,so it probably wasn't originally intended as part of the series,(which is probably why many purists don't like it)but i'm glad it was made .i think it's a fitting end to the saga.for the purists that won't watch on principle,it's their loss.for me,The Godfather: Part III is a 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars one of these days i'm gonna get organiz-ized, April 12 2010
i can't believe i waited this long to finally watch this classic.this is one brilliant film.De Niro is excellent as the title character AKA Travis Bickel.Martin Scorsese directed this masterpiece.i don't wanna to oversell this film,but it's something else.i'm not gonna give any of the plot away,because i think any way who goes into this should view it without any preconceived notions.DE Niro is brilliant here,that much i'll say.i also loved the look of the film,the style,the colours.if you haven't seen it,i would highly recommend it.for me,Taxi Driver is a 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars little known movie about a largely forgotten World War II battle, April 12 2010
This review is from: When Trumpets Fade (DVD)
this little gem of a movie is fairly unknown.it tells the story of a World War II battle that is pretty much forgotten(but no less important)and overshadowed by other more famous battles.it's a gritty movie,with a rough unpolished look to it.there no big name superstars here either.this film has a more intimate personal feel to than many other war movies.the acting is first rate all around here,but Martin Donovan and Dwight Yoakam are real standouts.this movie is well worth the watch in my opinion.just like the battle it depicts,it may have been overshadowed by other war pictures with bigger budgets and bigger names,but this one is no less important.for me,When Trumpets Fade is a 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars watch out for the many inferior knockoff versions out there, April 12 2010
simply put,this animated film is lots of fun.with great catch songs,fun action,and it's funny.the characters are also colourful.the voice talents are great,as well.i can't imagine more appropriate voices for the characters.the whole family can enjoy this gem.unfortunately there are a few different inferior versions of this film out that have capitalized on the Jungle Book name but they don't compare to the Disney version.if you haven't seen it yet,i'd recommend it highly.you can't go wrong,in my opinion.just make sure it's the Disney version and not one of the many other cheap knock off versions.for me,Disney's The Jungle Book is a 5/5

2.0 out of 5 stars mildly entertaining, April 12 2010
This review is from: Jungle Book 2 (DVD)
this sequel pales in comparison to the classic and much loved original.the story(such as it is)is pretty lame,and doesn't really have a point,and most of the songs are lacklustre.still,the movie was mildly amusing and had a few funny moments.since it was released about thirty six years after the original,some of the original characters from the the first movie did not have the same voice talents,which is a shame.anyway,in my opinion,they should have just stuck with the original classic,instead of releasing a lacklustre sequel.though,to be fair,this sequel is not as bad as many of the direct to video sequels that Disney has and will continue to churn out.so i guess that's something.then again,i don't feel this one should not have been released theatrically either.for me,The Jungle Book 2 is a 2/5
