Homer: The Iliad ***
ONLY 3 Stars!?!? You ask - Yes - While the story is brilliant - it seems to me that the ancient Greeks talked way too much smack. In to immortal words of Tuco Benidicto Juan Ramirez (AKA the Rat) "When its time to shoot - SHOOT - don't talk."
Wilde: The Picture of Dorian Gray ****
Awesome story dealing with the price of vanity and narcissism - with a touch of teh ghey. Fortunately, Dorian never overtly chases sausage, just the women who's hearts he loves to break.
The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt *****
Perfectly written biography - No wonder it won a Pulitzer.
Scary "true" home invasion story - ZER0 Plot.
"True" drama about a bum who is hit by a skank and gets stuck in the windshield. sucks
Horton Hears a Who ****
Suess is the greatest
Kung Fu Panda ****
Supurb voice overs on a damned good animated kung fu flick.
Speed Racer ***
Exactly what you would expect. Not bad.
Iron Man ***
See Speed Racer
Batman - The Dark Knight ****
Lions for the Lambs ****
Damed good - in spite of the *very* transparent attempt to paint the "antagonist" as a Bushie who cares only about "Winning the War" and nothing about the feelings of the people involved.
Red Belt *****
Best Martial Arts movie without Jet Li in a while.
Move and You Die ****
Wow - Funny as...Aussie Gangsters
Mmmmmm.....Angie - ....ummm...Movie? Oh yeah...the movie was pretty good.
Get Smart **
Not bad - not good -
The Other Bolyn Girl ****
Supurb historical "fiction" - pretty close to reality, I bet.
The Name of the King **
Great Movie in spite of Cloony and Zellweger
The Love Guru **
How to NOT spoof Bollywood.
You Don't Mess With The Zohan ****
Adam Sandler does it again - Bravo! "The Communism TightCrotch? What?"
The Eye ****
I was diggin' it - scary!
Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian ****
Better than the first one to me.
Vantage Point ****
Damned good flick about the various views of a presidential assasination.
Pretty good sooper hero movie worth a watch.
Indy IV ****
Stellar - Area 51 and all
Sweeny Todd ****
