Finally saw Despicable Me and I didnt think it was AS GOOD as people were saying it to be. It was good don't get me wrong, but not as good as people were saying like OMG ITS AMAZING, BEST MOVIE EVER, etc...it was really funny and cute tho. Also some parts got me saddened up. The cast was amazing too. Steve Carell, Russell Brand, Jason Segel, Julie Andrews, Miranda Cosgrove, and more that I don't know about. The story could've been a little better. I'll give it a

Saw Bad Teacher yesterday and I thought it was HILLARIOUS!!! Very funny!!! And Cameron Diaz was RIDICULOUSLY HOT in this movie!!! I mean OMG!!!!! At her age she was ridiculous...but u can tell she's getting old tho. Also the boobs/titties were AMAZING!!! Got me hard for sure!!! Damn! Anyways, I mean it didnt really have a legit story or a deep story or anything, it was jus funny. I personally thought it was funnier than Hangover Part 2. I'll give it a
Super 8: 8/10: This movie was so close to being great. I'll get to what ruined it for me in a sec here in white text below. But the good points: Great atmosphere. The setting and everything was brilliant. That's because of my next point, the homage that the movie seems to be. The way they went about the movie, even at times with some old caricatures that you used to see in movies like that were just so well placed.
The script was very good. And it was legit funny at times. And it wasn't bloated. Now some might say that some of it was corny and predictable. But whether on purpose or not it came off like an homage to the genre not just bloated writing. Also had good pacing, but not all the way through. It really speeds up all of the sudden, and the build is ruined.
So now we get to my beef. *SPOILER ALERT IN WHITE TEXT* They showed the monster too early. In fact I don't think they needed to show it at all! But if they were going to it should have only been seen once, in that cave. The suspense is ruined because you see it when it attacks the sheriff. The in the middle you see it again almost completely. This killed the build up... in the middle of the movie! The ending was also kinda strange. It just suddenly ends it seems. And then the thing with the locket was too much. They could have ended with the fathers finally connecting with their kids.
That movie stirs up my emotions more than any other movie I can think of. I just find it so relate-able, especially considering I have had 2 labs (1 that I absolutely loved that died, and the other who is almost exactly like Marley and I like even though she is a pain; the second dog appears to be getting close to the end of her time as well)
This movie absolutely made 0 sense. It's just a bunch of cars blowing up and the same old bullsh*t. Shia fights with his super model girlfriend just so they can embrace at the end. This is a terrible movie. One that made me angry. Angry because even though I expected a bad movie, I expected a bad movie that made sense.
There are like 10 plot holes I thought of on the way home. Michael Bay must do massive amounts of coke before he edits these piece of sh*t movies. I would love to kick Bay in the balls if I ever had the chance. It really pisses me off that he gets money to make films. It's a disgrace.
It speaks to the density of the books that there can be 9 hours of film and I still feel like stuff was shorted.
My qualm with RotK the film is that I could have done without the pageantry of the royal wedding and what have you. I almost feel like there was a different interpretation of who the King in RotK is, it was presented as Viggo's return as the human king, where as when I was reading the book, I always felt it was Frodo's return to the shire, where he really can't even function, and doesn't get the respect he deserves. That's the Return in my opinion, and it was sort of glossed over.
Also, UK talks about his favorite scenes being from II and III. I think my favorite scenes would both be from I, when they're hiding under the tree stump and the dark rider is sniffing around just above them. And I also really like the scene where they first run into the Strider in the bar, and he's still a mystery character who may be good or bad and they're not sure.
There's a few treebeard scenes I really love too. I felt like Treebeard in general was handled about as perfectly as he could've.
