2011 Movies to Drool Over

I’m a bit behind in putting up my movie list for this year.

Last year’s list was full of promise, but I only got to see 4 of the 21 listed films in the theater. I’ve since brought the total up to 11 with the help of DVDs. I hope to catch the 12th (Voyage of the Dawn Treader) on DVD next week. I’m still annoyed that I missed that one.

Review: The Last Airbender

The Last Airbender‘s current ranking on RottenTomatoes.com? 6%

Six percent. In other words, atrocious. Worse than 94% of all movies rated. Horrible. A steaming pile of excrement. Your mother would slap you and make extra appointments with her psychiatrist if she heard you watched this movie.

I watched it anyway.

You know what? It’s not that bad.

Now, don’t get me wrong… it’s not good, either. That script needed some serious work. This is . . . → Read More: Review: The Last Airbender

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra – Review

I should have known. I made the mistake, and I paid for it (literally). I saw Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in the theater. One of the biggest wastes of my time I’ve ever spent money on. It taught me a valuable lesson, though: I learned that it actually is possible to be bored stiff during long, high-technical-quality, eye-candy filled action sequences. Never before had I watched so much stuff blow up and thought “when . . . → Read More: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra – Review

New Transformers trailer is nice but…

Here’s the thing about Michael Bay’s Transformer films: from what I’ve seen, there’s not much plot involved. With this new trailer I was hoping we’d get some semblance of plot or something. I think there is about 3 lines of dialogue in the whole thing, surrounded by a bunch of special effects, frequently in slow motion:

Don’t get me wrong… I love special effects (okay, technically they’re visual effects, mostly). But unless something happens . . . → Read More: New Transformers trailer is nice but…

Tuesday TubeWatch: Super Bowl Movie Roundup

If you were the head of a movie company, which movies would you choose to spend $1.5 million per 30 seconds to advertise during the Super Bowl—an event watched primarily by people who like to watch men running and slamming into each other? Let me give you a hint: it wouldn’t be Wendy and Lucy.

No. You get action. You get slow motion beatings and martial acrobatics. You get fast cutting, adrenaline pushing excitement and . . . → Read More: Tuesday TubeWatch: Super Bowl Movie Roundup
