    The Movie Review Thread

    Hitman - sucked.

    Bee Movie - amazing animation and pretty interesting story, but it bugged me for some reason.

    Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - meh. Aside from the uninspired story, Indy had trouble getting in and out of chairs. It was painful to watch Harrison Ford try to move.

    The only thing I can say in support of Crystal Skull is that everyone was pretty good natured about how dopey it was.

    Toy Story 2 is a surprisingly good movie.

    For years, I didn't see anything unless it was made by Pixar or featured animated green ogres. We have now graduated to action movies with lots of bathroom humor (Get Smart, for instance). I can't say it's much of an improvement.

    Liked it as well.

    How 'bout the real classics? Only Angels Have Wings is the best unsung movie of 1939, and The Palm Beach Story always has me holding my sides laughing.

    Thumbs up The Dark Knight

    Okay, somehow I managed to miss this in theaters. Just never got around to seeing it. So I rented the DVD this week.

    I never read comics, and superhero movies are just another action flick to me. But . . .

    Damn.

    Heath Ledger was amazing. I mean, I couldn't even recognize the guy. And I'm not talking about the make-up either. I sat there during his scenes and tried to picture Ledger acting as the joker, and I couldn't. It was just a different entity in those scenes.

    Ledger was so good, I think some of the social commentary about terrorism and how we choose to fight it got overshadowed. Not because the commentary wasn't good (it was), but just because Ledger was so good. 100% believable as a guy who puts on make-up and does things just because he "just wants to see the world burn."

    Spoiler
    I was particularly impressed with the scenes where the joker clearly wanted to be killed. He dared people to kill him. He begged people to kill him. He didn't care about life at all, not even his own. In fact, mostly not his own. And it was subtle, but believable. When he did things that kept him from dying, it wasn't because he wanted to live, but because he there was just something else evil that he wanted to do.

    Harry: I found hitman really good. A really creepy erie character but at the same time, not completely psychotic. Great storyline as well.

    Dark Knight: Do I even have to describe how good it is?

    I really didn't care for Hitman.


    And no, you don't. It was a very good film.


    Did anyone else think that Maggie Gyllenhaal was significantly less attractive than ever before? I'll still take her over Katie Holmes, who couldn't act her way out of a box . . . or a closet . . .

    Thanks NVM. I was wondering about it because it got mixed reviews. I'll just wait for it to hit cable.
