Saw Nightmare Before Christmas as they were showing it again at my local cinema. It's really great, but you knew the already right? 4/5

Then I saw Corpse Bride which is also really really good. Better story than Nightmare but less dynamic. Also better soundtrack but worse songs. 4/5

And since these are the Mojo forums, I can say that both films really reminded me of Grim Fandango - particualrly the sub-characters like the Mayor in Nightmare and the skeleton children in Corpse Bride.

Last night I saw Howl's Moving Castle which I really really liked. Hayao Miyazaki's other films are supposed to be better though, so I should see them too somehow. 4/5

saw jarhead the other day, really enjoyed it. i'd recommend seeing it at least once, but then again i'd do that for any movie so you can form your own opinion. except for saw. because, seriously, saw sucked. let's not talk about saw.

tomorrow i'll be seeing that new movie about kid wizards for free cuz i work at a movie theater. yes. and i'm reallly looking forward to a movie that comes out in december called SYRIANA.

and the new king kong trailer feels like god smiling at you.

Yeah, King Kong Harry Potter and Narnia look set to rock big bells.

I saw Legend of Zorro which, despite getting panned by the critics, I really enjoyed. This was probably because a) I love action/adventure stories b) I didn't find the kid annoying and c) the nasty cinema man got all the talking children to shut the hell up. Talking children ruined Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the Harry Potter films for me.

And even though it's not new, I recently saw classic anime Akira. It was on a projector so it still counts as cinema, sort of. Interesting fact: I bet the biking sequences in Full Throttle were inspired by the start of that film. Seriously, compare the two and be amazed. It would also explain the haiku at the end of the game.

And Saw? Saw the DVD recently (no pun intended, honest to God) and I thought it was pretty good. Had the guy from the Princess Bride in it.

I'm going to see Potter tomorrow so I'll be back with a review then. I haven't seen Zorro, nor do i intend to. Far be it for me to judge a book by it's cover and I did quite enjoy the first one, but the second looks to dissapoint. The first impression I got from the trailer was that it was just a movie filled with set pieces, it told me nothing of the story except that the kid is now old enough to seem annoying (I was too much reminded of the kid from The Mummy Returns), and even if he isn't, it's way too much of a cliché these days for the action adventure sequel to give the main characters a kid.

Of course I can't really pass judgment at all until I see it, but for me, I may just rent it when it comes out (I have very little money and I'm spending what I have left on Potter tomorrow, so I can't really be wasting money right now on films that I may or may not enjoy)

Saw Potter and I can only really say good things about it. I suppose if I try real hard I'll find some bad ones as well, so lets just see how things go.

First of all, Hogwarts is now a school, the children in it act like school kids, which is great fun to see, even if you're still in school. Secondly, the triplet can now act. I know they did act a bit in the last film, but this film is all out acting, and it's good. Humour has been cranked up a bit, many a time the audience errupted with laughter around me, which is all good. Effects are all out this time round, but not enough to overburden the story, which is also done well, if not a little surprisingly in parts as a lot of readers of the books will find.

The film in all is incredibly grown up, not all scenes are seen from Harry's POV like in the books and the dialogue flows nicely, it's not just giving us information anymore, but it now seems like the characters are living. The final act is done very well, inkeeping with the tone that the book laid down for the graveyard scene, all the way through to the credits, which, unlike the last 3 movies, don't arrive on a happy note as the film ends with the death of one of it's main (if not new to the films) characters. One little foible I do have is in the spoiler below.

spoiler:
The only thing that really got me is that anyone who hadn't read the books but had half a brain knew that Moody was infact Crouch Jr by around halfway through the movie, or at least when you finally see the pensieve scene and then is told that Polyjuice potion was taken from Snapes store cupboard. Now obviously, people who aren't familiar with the books probably would have forgotten polyjuice potion from the second movie by now, but it's still pretty obvious, whereas in the book, readers weren't given enough clues by half to figure it all out until it was too late and it worked a hell of a lot better then. Even if they'd did it gradually, it would have been good, but the movie seemed to make out as if he had something wrong about him from the off. Even still, all was good and done really well.

The ending especially will leave you more than a little teary, even if you have read the book and know what's coming.


So, basically, I'd give it a 4/5

I really enjoyed Potter. The films have been getting better and better in my opinion (wasn't a fan of the first film, thought the second was decent, really liked the third). This one's great. I agree with Joshi on basically everything he had to say about it, and I'm glad the Weasley twins are finally characters in the films.


there's TVs at my work that show a bunch of trailers on a loop, and one thing that entertained me about the Zorro trailer is that he is on a horse and makes the horse jump onto a train. Which really just seems redundant to me.

Yeah I went and saw it too. In IMAX no less, so it was really big. Definately liked it better than the earlier ones. But I thought the first two were pretty dull. Never read the books, but I like the darkness finally building up it's no longer we beat his balls ten years ago and still fear him and oh scary scary you live under a turban of an enemy. Never really liked that.


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

I'm actually now in two minds about what i said in the spoiler above. here's the other side of it.

spoiler:
Basically making the audience feel weary of him to begin with seems like a good idea as they won't be spending as much time at the end confused as to how and when he wasn't the real Moody (just to clarify, he was never the real Moody). It also leaves the audience feeling less betrayed, I'm sure plenty of people fell in love with Moody's character in the book, only to have the rug completely pulled away in the end, something that didn't happen in Philosophers Stone as we never really got to know Quirrel. In the movie, we're given red herrings, but we're also given the real lead as well before the reveal, which can be good as we're not led to fall in love with the character (well, the ferret scene makes up for a lot, but the classroom scene showed him to be torturing his students instead of teaching them)


I still leave it with it's 4/5, infinately better than the first two movies, and keeps with the same style as the third(well, almost, if we wanted that, they would have hired Curón again).

Walk the Line was enjoyable, don't think anyone saw it because of Harry Potter though.

David Tennant is awesome, and he also looks exactly like Richard Hammond, also awesome. Harry Potter was awesome too, although I would definitely prefer just a solid two hours of banter between those teens.

The dialogue and acting from the kids was certainly done a lot better in this film (Potter).

Man, The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe was completely fantastic. Beats Potter hands down, not that it's a competition, and my fears of "they've LOTR'd it " were unfounded. Excellent!

Now bring on The Magician's Nephew and make me happy. Hell, I'm going to write to Disney and ask to direct it myself.

Also just saw the Lion the Witch and the wardrobe, and yes, very enjoyable. For people like me, who've never read the books and can't really remember the old cartoon, it's very fresh and interesting. Not too much emphasis on the War (WW2 I mean), more emphasis on the fantasy world of Narnia. Tilda Swinton does a brilliant job as the white witch, but since her role as Gabriel in Constantine, I never really had any doubts about this. The CGI animals looked real and didn't take away from the reality of Narnia, Aslan was perticularly well done. I won't give a full review as that would involve a few spoilers and i really don't have the energy at 2 in the morning. All I'll say is, well worth a watch, I give it 4 out of 5 (I'd give it five, but the film critic in me would have a few things to say about that).

I didn't really like Narnia all that much, and I never really became a big fan of the Potter movies. Read the books like everyone else though.

There was a particularly nice bit with Digory (the Professor) at the end, after the credits had started rolling, which relates back to the prequel and is also kind of prophetic towards Prince Caspian too.

Lion, Witch & The Wardrobe was DAMN poor! I don't recall the book, it may or may not have been a good adaptation - but I was very underwhelmed. The score was nice, and I did enjoy the fact that the grown-up version of Susan was played by "Big Suze" from Peep Show, but that was about it!

Narnia has more potential, though. Give it to a better director! Like Tones!

I wasn't blown away by The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe either. It was better than the average film adaptation - I mean, it didn't leave me bitter, having destroyed my childhood dreams, which is what usually happens - but it didn't really capture the magic of Narnia for me. The first bit with the Professor was probably as close as it got.

I don't remember whether the book made it so explicit that
spoiler:
the Professor had been to Narnia himself
. It certainly hinted at it, but I thought it was more implicit. Hmm.

Still, that bit was appreciated. Stopping to stand in the aisles at the cinema, like a gimp, is always fun.

Oh man, I didn't notice Big Suze. That's hilarious. Presumably not an intentional in-joke!

Last night Ricky Gervais told viewers of the British Comedy Awards that they should be watching Peep Show. Which is good!

Still, I'm not sure this particular slice of Narnia did have more potential, you know. There isn't much to the story, and there's even less to Prince Caspian. It'll be interesting to see what they do there.

Roll on Voyage of the Dawn Treader!

Well Huz,

spoiler:
the book of The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe doesn't say that the professor has been to Narnia. It alludes to it (maybe) but we all know he has because of the sixth book, which is the best one, and the first in the chronology.

Oh ho.

Is that the one with the pools and the rings and stuff? How is it spelt out that the boy is the Professor? Remind me. :~

Yes it is that one.

spoiler:
I don't remember exactly, but as far as I know... at the end of the book Polly (the little girl) plants an Apple-core from the tree in Narnia which Jadis got her powers from in the garden. A tree grew from it, and it says that years later Digory cut the tree down and made a wardrobe from the wood. He then put the wardrobe in his house, and the rest is history.

And I might be wrong about this, but it looked like Digory threw an apple at the kids at the end. I'll have to check next time I see the film.
I'm suprised you were underwealmed by it - I was *totally* blown away, ridiculously so. It might be to do with that fact that I haven't slept for days but I was practically crying at how good that film was. Practically crying.

I thought it was the best adaptation ever; it didn't just faithfully retell the story, it actually made it better.

I award this film a million out of five!

I also saw Roman Polanski's Oliver Twist which was on at my arts cinema, and it was really good too. 4/5

and she thought Aslan was really dead.

I just saw "Peter Jackson's King Kong." It was a fantastic movie. Lots of action. PJ did a great job on the movie.

I've been watching the BBC version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe again.

I think I prefer it to the film!

Well the DVDs are freely available in shops and on the net.

As for the music, the real die-hard fans can buy the soundtrack from Amazon!

Or, hell, just download the main theme (plus some "remixes") here. ;

I agree with it having pretty good music - it's full of nostalgia, anyway. The movie had a good soundtrack too I thought.

Haha, awesome!! I once entered into a competition to win that but I lost. :~

I also want a soundtrack with just the music cues on it. The funny thing is that you can actually get one of those for Doctor Who. ;~

Yes, I've also seen Munich and have to agree that it was very good and very opwerful at times. Slightly long, but nothing overbearing and outstanding acting. 4/5

Also saw Fun with Dick and Jane. Carrey's good although not really on top form, he could have done better, and he's certainly showing his age, even if he doesn't think he is. The plot is something one can get behind, but effectively, isn't met as well as it could have been. Overall, I'd recommend it to anyone who's just out for a bit of fun, but don't expect to be laughing all the way, simply because not all of the jokes are funny. 3/5

May as well go full hog with the other films I've seen (I got a 12 month movie pass from my parents for my birthday, so i've been seeing a hell of a lot of movies), but I aint giving full reviews.

Just Friends 2/5
Just like heaven 3/5
King Kong (have I done this already?) 5/5

I can agree that Munich was a lengthy. I saw King Kong recently too. It was a great movie. I also just watched Star Wars: Episode V: Empire Strikes Back for like the tenth time. I think it's the best of the Original Trilogy movies.

Munich: 4/5
King Kong: 4.5/5
ESB: 4.5/5

I'm behind on everything because I go to Baghdad Univesity (or at least the Welsh equivelent) and we get everything late.

Anyway, I just got back from Serenity which showed at the arts cinema due to popular demand for this weekend. The cinema was completely filled, which meant that the audience reactions were great, though I also got squished next to a guy who kept coughing because he smokes and smelt like a pub. I slouched down so far away from him that I was practically on the floor, but anyway. The film was brilliant, of course, with full marks in special effects, music, acting, plot and characters. The cinematography was great, especially the camera work, and the whole thing was so refreshingly original. Comparative, I think, to the first Matrix film. My only regret is that I didn't watch Firefly before seeing the film, though now that I have seen the film I'll be sure to get the series on DVD. 5/5

King-kong was great, definitely worth seeing. The film really raised the bar in terms of special effects laden action sequences. 4/5

I also caught The Producers. I hear it's not as good as the original, and I'm sure it doesn't compare to seeing it live, but, hey, I enjoyed myself. Some catchy songs and funny scenes. 3/5

Four Rooms 3/5 Been meaning to watch it for a while since I like Rodriguez and Tarantino a lot, it's pretty quirky and not all that great, but I love those guys too much not to like it.

THX 1138 4.5/5 Rewatched this one the other night, the special edition with all of the CGI. Really good stuff, classic sci-fi.

I believe a new world is actually a Pocahontas story, slightly more accurate than the disney version. haven't seen it, but heard good things.

Yes. It is. My spelling of "Pochahontas" is pitiful.

MUNICH was absolutely astounding. i can't believe spielberg made the subpar (i thought) War of the Worlds in the same year. everybody go see munich. i didn't even notice the length at all until i walked out of the theatre and checked the time on my phone.

oh, hey, since we're all rating out of five, 5/5.
and recently i've been watching a bunch of documentaries (because i'm making one, and i need a bunch of stuff to subconsciously rip off). Hoop Dreams is the best documentary I've ever seen (5/5), Murderball was really enjoyable (4/5), paradise lost was great as well (4/5). haven't gotten to Grizzly Man yet but i've rented it and it's just sitting on my tv.

and for the record i was not really a fan of the narnia movie. i didn't think it was bad at all, i just found it entirely unremarkable. 2/5. they're making sequels, hopefully those will sell me on it.

Have you seen March of the Penguins? I saw it last night. It was awesome. 4/5

I also saw "Keeping Mum", a mediocre English commedy made brilliant by Rowan Atkinson, Maggy Smith and Patrick Swayze. 3/5
