wombat - Technically sexy.

Technically sexy.

oh God- I hated 12 monkeys- Most of Terry Gilliam's stuff actually, especially Brazil. Everyone seems to love him and i don't see why- no offence there, LBF- I'm just saying, I find most of TG's films patronising and confusing- and not because I don't get them, but because they are SH*T.

LoonyPandora - Daft Cow?

Daft Cow?

The Bourne Ultimatum:


I think that is all that needs to be said about the film. Apart from the most annoying quote, which is a CIA computer-y type saying: "They've penetrated our protocol!!"

Dismantling a person is sometimes necessary...

Title: The Bourne Ultimatum
Genre: Action/spy dealy
Good actors: Matt Damon
Minutes too long: None.
Positives: It's well good, innit. Great action sequences and not one film too far in the franchise.
Negatives: Some of the scenes, like the car chase scenes were a tad familiar from the first two films.

Score: 7/10
I hope some day, for some reason, David Duchovny is investigated by the FBI. Because that would make a great story.

Chris Kamara -

Title: Transformers

Sarah & I went to see this last night and here is what we thought:

Genre: Sci-fi
Basic plot: Alien robots come to Earth and make a big mess.
Good actors: Shia LeBoeuf.
Products placements: Chevrolet Camaro and Nokia.
Minutes too long: 45 minutes/1 hour.
Deaths: Some robots died.
Attractive females: Megan Fox.
Attractive males: Josh Duhamel
Best quote: "So, why are you here?" "I bought a car and it turned out to be an alien robot. Who knew?"
Highlight: The car changing the music to try and force romance.
Lowlight: It went on and on and on and on.
Our Score: 6/10

The first 3/4 would have got 8/10, but the last 1/4 dragged the score down. It really is too long, but otherwise quite good, if a little OTT at times. (and cheesy)

Um. I know some poeple somehow find Adam Sandler funny and he's got a bit of respect for his music and all, but.......arrrrrrrrgh, no, no, no, he drives me insane. Any film he is in....I cannot like it because HE is in it. Oh aside, from that film I saw last week where he had a cameo as the white rasta, but that's only because he had a minor part and it was so unfunny all the actors around him were blatantly all 'Sandler, are you purposely trying to ruin this film??' which I liked.

Can't remeber what else happened in the film though. Hmmm.

Minutes too long: 3 1/2
