So its one of the worst movies youve ever seen? Because giving a four gives off that impression.
How does a movie that has solid acting as you said get a 4? Wouldnt that make it above average?
Yikes, I forgot to put in at the top, "Scale of 1-10" where 5 is completely average." I like to use a whole scale when grading films because I believe it gives a more accurate vision on how the quality of the film. The film was below average, because outside the acting, everything was quite terrible. Acting can only get you so far.
"Scale of 1-10, where 5 is completely average."
Great plot, great pace and very unique and funny dialogue. Damon and Kinnear had great chemistry as well. Prime Eva Mendes is a legit 9/10. Absolutely banging. I most likely enjoyed the film more than the average viewer because I have close brothers, and I kind of related a lot of the conflict in the film with my own, blah blah blah.
Basically your average run of the mill romantic comedy, but with a slightly better cast and more crude/sexual humor, which lifts the comedy a little bit. For some reason when I was first started watching it, I actually thought it was really good, but most feel good movies do just that I guess. Make you feel good. The film is actually rated R, which I didn't know at first. Anna Faris was cool and kind of cute in my opinion. Probably showed too much of the real funny parts the trailer though. Couple of funny cameos.
Stupid movie. Heather Graham is a babe, but stupid movie. Stupid plot. Graham's husband Luke Wilson runs off, and she chases him to El Paso, Texas and just does stupid shit trying to get her back. She gets all spiritual and tries to use Indian magic, and there's a couple of weird as sexual scenes where she doesn't even get naked. Weird as ****. Mark Ruffalo is actually in a small role, which surprised me. Movie was shot back in 2000, so I guess it was before he got big. He was funny in the two scenes he was in. Other than that, stupid movie. Waste of time really. Only watched it cause Graham was hot, and when I start watching a movie, I can't stand not finishing it.
Brainscan - 5/10. I saw this on fearnet the other night...was a horror flick from 94, thing I love about 90's movies is..well, everything because of the pop culture, dress, etc. this story was about a kid who is lonely and like horror films and games. he orders a game called brainscan which gives the ultimate horror experience, and in the game he has to kill people...he realizes though after he wakes up from each session of the game that the killings are real! the ending is a nice little twist. got a boobshot in there too, so 5 lol.
Beneath the Darkness - 1/10. Why does nobody listen to me? Why do people get shitty redbox movies? WHY!!!? Well actually, we had a good laugh watching this, but were so pissed at all the plotholes. It was a horror flick with Dennis Quaid and a bunch of no names in which Quaid is a mortician who's creepy af, has the dead body of his wife living with him at his house...these 4 kids decide to break in WHILE HE IS HOME to spy on him because they think he is with a ghost...one of the kids gets killed, the other friends run away despite the fact that he didn't even have a weapon...some friends. Anyway, Quaid buries them in caskets alive as his signature killing. Ending is stupid, the actors are terrible, wow how does shit like this ever get made? Funniest line was "You know what Travis, this is Texas. And in Texas, we can shoot burglars!"
I had seen the original 28 Days Later in the theaters about a decade or so when it originally came out, and was a fan, but nothing die-hard or whatnot. I never got around to watching the sequel 28 Weeks Later until just the other day.
Damn, I have to say I was pretty impressed. I enjoyed this storyline, acting, effects, etc. better on all levels compared to it's predecessor. I'm not a huge fan of the post-apocalyptic/zombie flicks, but this one kept me highly entertained.
