Well… it didn’t completely suck. Anachronisms and inaccuracies aside, the movie is a fun one if you turn your brain off and try to allow yourself to simply be entertained. And the CG/effects work is really well done. Of course, it’s still pretty thin and probably wasn’t worth what they spent to produce it.

Cloverfield

Worth the watching. Strong acting, strong effects. The handheld camera thing didn’t bother me at all. Go see it.

Shoot ‘Em Up

Disappointing… and I wasn’t expecting all that much to begin with.

Futurama: Bender’s Big Score

It’s awesome. Buy it and watch it.

I Am Legend

I like it! It might not be what most people expect, but I really enjoyed watching this one. I still have questions about parts of the story, but I think that was by design.

Superbad

The Simpsons Movie

Bwahahahahaha! As expected: very, very funny. Well worth watching, whether you’re a fan of the show or not. It’s great to know that the previews only showed some of the funny bits and there were plenty to catch within the movie. Good stuff.

Ratatouille

Good. Very good. Not quite Incredibles good, but very good nonetheless. Good acting, great sets, good comedy. The “don’t steal” bit is a touch contrived, but it’s forgivable. And the short that plays before the movie, titled Lifted, is *incredibly* funny. See it if you haven’t already.

Transformers

Wednesday, July 4th, 2007

I’m conflicted a bit with this one. It was definitely an exciting movie with very strong acting and great action and very well executed effects that involved giant transforming robots. However… I’m not sure if it’s actually Transformers. And there’s some generally poor writing/storytelling going on (as should probably be expected from something directed by [...]
