The second movie in the Matrix trilogy. The Machine Army is in search of Zion now that the Matrix has been exposed.
I use the twin picture because they were my favorite. They were super cool!
Besides the twins, I’ll just say that it isn’t as good as the first one, but it could be because it is setting up the third one. It does end with a “To be Continued” type tag at the end. I thought it started out slow, but the fight scenes were awesome. The bad guy who employed the twins was very funny, but nothing is cooler than the twins warping in and out of existence. Neato!
There were also two cheesy scenes that just needed to go (love scene over the rave and the hand starting the heart scene), but still a good movie overall. Just not WOW like the first one (besides the twins). Did I mention that I liked the twins? I wanna do that. warp warp warp. weeeeeeeee!
A family deals with their grief after their son is killed.
Ok, I was warned about this movie. I knew it would be slow but jesus! It was slooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow. It was that slow. So slow I think I might have fallen asleep or I could have just been staring off at a wall. I couldn’t really tell the difference.
It is supposed to be a movie about grief. A family has to deal with the death of their son but bleah whatever, I didn’t care about them. The only one in the movie that I actually cared about was the one who died. Everyone else was not sympathetic at all. You didn’t get to like the characters first. They were annoying to begin with so I didn’t care if they were grieving. Even when the movie has the most satisfying ending it could possibly have given the circumstances, I still didn’t care. I just couldn’t believe it was still going on.
Oh, and it was nominated for a bunch of Oscars including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress. Apparently everyone in the Academy was on crack that year.
A brilliant mathematician deals with schizophrenia, falling in love and secret work in cryptography.
I didn’t want to watch this movie for the longest time. I thought it would be too sappy and it wasn’t really true to the guy’s life. I think the bad part of it was the scenes they showed at the Oscars were the sappiest scenes. Also the whole thing about the real guy the movie is based on having an affair with other men at one point in his life was left out of the movie.
All of that aside, I actually enjoyed this movie. First, the sappy was only in that one scene. Ignore that scene and it is a very entertaining movie. While watching it, I could not find a place for the whole gay/bisexual storyline to really fit in because it had nothing to do with the movie. It wasn’t a biography on the guy. It was a movie that was telling a story. The story was this guy finding his place in the world, dealing with schizophrenic and falling in love. Those are pretty big themes to be dealing with and another one might have made the movie topple.
So, I’m glad I watched it. Russell Crowe did a good job and he still reminds me of Kaile. They make the same faces sometimes.
A 1950′s rich family’s life turns upside down when the wife catches her husband in bed with another man.
Starring Julianne Moore, Dennis Quaid, and President Palmer, er I mean Dennis Haybert. It takes place in the 50′s and is filmed like movies were filmed in the 50′s. People talk funny. No one is open minded about anything and crazy stuff happens.
Cathy thinks she has the perfect life. She’s a homemaker to a successful salesmen and they have two kids while living in the suburbs. One night she catches her husband making out with another man. oops! Then she starts hanging out with the black gardener which causes quite the tizzy with the society people. oh no!
Julianne Moore is awesome and Dennis Quaid did a great job. The movie makes you mad at the way people act but that’s what it was supposed to do. I really enjoyed it, but it isn’t any light-hearted film about the good ole days of the 50′s.
A naive boy has his sleazy uncle Campbell Scott show him the ways of the city with women and sex.
A kid goes to New York to check out colleges and visit his uncle Roger who his mom (Roger’s sister) has quit talking to over the years. Roger is a lady’s man, at least he thinks so. The kid wants to know how to pick up women so he spends one night with Roger watching and learning his moves.
Very funny movie. It’s a fast-paced talking type of movie. If you don’t pay attention, you’ll miss most of it.
A writer tries to adapt a book into a movie and writes himself into the script. Directed by Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich).
It is written by the same guy that wrote Being John Malcovich and both were directed by the same guy too. The screenwriter was actually hired to adapt Susan Orlean’s book The Orchid Thief, but he was having trouble doing it. He wanted to get away from the weird stuff of his last movie and do something different for him, but he was completely stuck. What he ends up doing is writing himself into the screenplay and movie. Not only that, he also invents a twin brother up too. This is never revealed in the movie and his “brother” does have screenwriting credits, but Charlie Kaufman does not have a twin brother.
Nicholas Cage plays both brothers and he is great. He should have been nominated for best actor I think. The two brothers are so different from one another, but you don’t even have to wait for one of them to talk before knowing which brother it is. Even though they look exactly the same and he’s playing both, he has these subtle differences with each one that you just know.
Very very very funny movie and completely bizarre.
Three guys in their late 20′s/early 30′s decide that they need to relive their youth by making a fraternity. Hijinks ensue.
Vince Vaughn used to be cute but he’s just gets creepier with each role. He’s an odd duck. Luke Wilson tries to be funny and he’s ok but he just doesn’t have the comic timing of his brother, no matter how much Owen Wilson annoys Jeremy. Will Ferrell was hilarious. He was the best part of the movie. Worth seeing it just for him.
This movie getting funnier each time I see it. I have seen parts of it again here and there whenever it is on cable. As soon as they are at the kid’s birthday party, I just start giggling. I can’t wait for the slo mo tranq shot and giving the poor kid a breadmaker for a present.
