The third and hopefully not final installment of the Oceans. As usual, I don’t understand half of the stuff they were ranting on and on throughout the movie because I wasn’t paying attention and mostly just staring at the screen, precisely at Brad Pitt.
Overall, it is a very flashy, kinda humorous and entertaining movie. I liked how they all acted cool and shit. Out to get the bad guys and kicked their ass and so on. Danny Ocean is still cool ass, as usual. Rusty was ever delicious and I liked how this film is mainly male-dominated and they played it cool.
Also the delicious moments of camaraderie and slick thieving moves was perhaps the key ingredients that kept me going back for more. Plot was thrilling, with a few laughs here and there and the twist as usual is always the stellar point of the movie.
Classy, slick and definitely cool.
Because I have not read the book, so I had nothing to compare with and was not expecting anything. But I must add, this time around it is getting old and rather pathetic. I felt like they somehow lost me somewhere at the beginning of the film. The first few sequels were rather fascinating and refreshing. I guess they really ran out of magic to make the movie work.
I found this episode was rather dreadful and I had trouble keeping my eyes towards the screen.
The thestrals were weird. I don’t know they seem weird to me.
And that Umbridge woman was annoying as hell. Her voice, her appearance itself is a pain to the eyes.
Special effects and the creatures and whats not were average. Nothing to brag about.
The poster and the catch line doesn’t seem to make much sense to me until the last 10 minutes of the movie and everything was revealed at the yes, very end. In fact, it wasn’t enough for me. I wanted more.
The ending was a pleasant surprise for me.
Overall, the movie is rather noir-ish because that’s the feeling I got from it. Rather dark, rather disturbing and it was obvious something was missing the the puzzle was piecing together painfully slow.
The acting was great. Halle Berry almost never seem to fail to amaze me. I’m not that big on Halle Berry but she did the best job I’ve seen her do in a while. The emo computer guy was scarily realistic as well. However, I still doubt his computer skills.
Interestingly, I liked the film. It has a good twist (boy do I love twists) and had a good balanced amount of everything else.
I was thinking to write a review about this movie but I struggled hard and was only able to come up with two words to sum it up.
I am addicted to Belle de Juor. It is extremely clever written, based on real life and is often updated. Because of her honesty, her quirky blog posts, then came the notorious hit book and now the TV hit series – the Secret Diary of a Call Girl.
Boy, did I mention I am addicted to it already and is waiting for the second season. *excited*
In this drama, Billie Piper plays the beautiful prostitute who leads the ultimate double life in the sexually explicit story. How interesting?
Looking fierce honey. Work it. Those shoes, bag and suit dress. Fierce, fierce, fierce.
She isn’t exactly pretty in the mainstream kind of way but definitely sexy and alluring. It is something about her that makes her role seem believable. I guess is the innocence and the passion. The lingeries galore, the sexy do-me shoes and attires are enough to keep me watching. Sex sells and I am sold.
Hannah, the legal secretary or Belle, the high-class escort. Definitely Belle. Her mission is to make money by satisfying male fantasies. At least, we have something to look forward to if the writers’ strike keeps continuing endlessly and we ran out of show this coming 2008.
This drama is based in UK, yay not affected.
I haven’t mention this before but there’s been a strike in Hollywood, LA regarding the writers’ of all the top production movies. I have been following the strike loyally since the first day of the outbreak. Of course, I am on the writers’ side and is secretly hoping and praying that it will be over soon. Because MOST OF THE SHOW ARE BEING PUT OFF FOR NEXT YEAR (2008).
I want my Heroes, Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty, Bionic Woman, and CASHMERE MAFIA. Now, due to the writers’ strike, the new show has been postponed. How shitty is that?
I have been waiting for this new show to premiere for ages and believe me I have been checking out the interview and stuff for this brand new exciting and definitely excellent show. Did I mention, the same producer of Sex and the City produce Cashmere Mafia. I would prefer this because it seems more stronger, bold and even more entertaining.
Ah Ben, you should watch out for this.
Jodie Foster. She’s been around and about in Hollywood for 40 years or so and still going strong. I believe my first real impression from her was The Silence of the Lamb as the stunning Clarice Starling.
I would admit Jodie is a great actress. This movie is about revenge and vigilantism. With Jodie’s amazing acting skill the movie actually took the audiences for a ride and experience the whole thing through Jodie’s character.
The bad guys as portrayed in the movie gets a little stereotyped and shows almost no personalty other than violent temper. Makes them an easy kill, I guess.
I would recommend everyone to watch this movie. The sadness of reality is so surreal everyone needs a little dosage of realism in our society once in a while.
Honestly, I haven’t watched the first two sequels of Bourne until earlier this year. Is a shame really. I loved the first two episodes and they were equally fascinating in the sense of being able to captivate the audiences over and over again. (well, at least for my case.)
Last month, Bourne Ultimatum was released and we went to watch in director’s seats. It was brilliant and the movie stayed true to its own form, being able to have heaps of suspense, intense, revealing, solid and cool scenes.
Perhaps the only regret was that it was the final episode and everyone went into the movie expected some form of closure. And the closure was indeed a little expectable.
We decided to watch a chick flick for my birthday and since it is about cooking which is my on-and-off passion so we decided to go for it. Funnily enough, this is a pretty serious, surreal film in fact a little depressing, a little sad.
The poster of the movie did no justice to the movie. It was more of a family drama than a romantic comedy.
No reservation was pretty entertaining. The protagonist was pretty expectable. For some reason, their characters were awfully familiar to the generalizations of chefs.
Fine dining. Check. Expensive restaurants. Check. Exotic food. Check. Romance. Check. Struggles. Check. Fight. Check. Tears. Check. Love. Check. Laughters. Check.
A feel-good film, definitely.
Perhaps just about everyone who blogs and watched movie has already written a review about Ratatouille. Usually I am not a big fan of cartoon or animations, I wasn’t very impressed with this one either. It was almost borderline towards being retardation after watching it.
I would definitely chose realistic film over animation any day.
First, there was Toy Story that got everyone talking about how toys can talk. Make believe I know.
Then, there was Finding Nemo, talking fishes, was it really necessary?
Now, they are trying to fill it in our brain that rats can cook. What next?
Dolphins doing ballets? Dogs walking human on the streets? Man, the possibility is countless and how many of these crap concept do they have to keep feeding the adults?
By all means, it is a good film for kids, the young and the innocent. But really, adults shouldn’t jump into the bandwagon thinking it is cool to watch talking pest/animals because something is very wrong here.
That aside, the visuals, unique style and vividly imagined world is perhaps what made everyone praising it about. One particular aspect that caught my attention was the voice acting. Every voice was distinctive, it felt like the characters themselves were speaking.
Again, most people would think this is a sell-out chick flick; boy was I wrong. The amount of swearing and smoking weed scene was enough to make Tenacious D weak in comparison.
Probably because there is something fundamentally poignant about watching people you deem hopeless stumbling toward responsibility; a lift changing moment as we call it, was pretty interesting to watch.
The movie has an amazing balancing act between a raunchy and a shrewdly observed social commentary. Surprisingly, free of exhausting crescendo moments, the dialogue has a nice ramshackle feel and so do the characters. I ended up genuinely feel that I wanted to know what happens to them after the film ends.
The highlight of the movie was definitely the birthing scene. It was hilariously executed and how often do you see a baby head coming out of a pussy on the big screens?
As I’ve expected, the storyline was the usual ‘a good man framed, runs for his life, protect his loved ones and fight for justice’. Nothing special about this movie except for the extensive knowledge about guns and the funny sidekick, Nick Memphis.
Another government, FBI corrupted film. Pretty much the theme all movies in Hollywood and Hong Kong are going for these days. If you like some good fun, this movie is worth renting the DVD to watch for but definitely not in the cinema.
