Since there hasn't been a whole lot of traffic around here lately, I though this might jump-start things. This thread is for people to talk about what movies they've seen, liked, hated, are looking forward to, etc. If it's just been released in the last couple of weeks, try to keep it spoiler free. Anyway, this summer started for me with X2. A great movie, much better than the first, IMO. This movie contained the best action sequence of the summer, hands down. The opening scene where Nightcrawler is trying to assassinate the president is just plain sick. The fight between Logan and Deathstrike is really good too. Much better than his fight with Mistique in the last one. My final grade: A- A week and a half later, my four year wait came to an end, and a dissapointing end at that. The Matrix: Reloaded was my most anticipated film of the year, and I must say that the anticipation was all for nothing. My first complaint, if I never see Keanu Reeve's butt again, it'll be too soon. The sex scene with him and Trinity could have been hot, but instead, it was just plain weird. Next, I did not really like the design of Zion. It reminded me too much of hippies which piss me off. The action sequences were great, but sometimes they were too forced. When Neo goes to see the Oracle, he gets into a fight with some oriental guy just to make sure he's "The One". Pointless and not very exciting. The Agents Smith vs. Neo fight was great, but the texturing on the 3D models of them could have been a lot better. I've seen some better texturing by some of the guys over at the fan films forum. I really enjoyed the highway scene too, but those two scenes weren't enough to save the movie. It was a fun summer movie, but nowhere near up to par with the original. My final grade: C Next up came Bruce Almighty. Jim Carrey came back to his true roots in style. After several serious attempts like Man on the Moon and The Majestic, I was beginning to worry that he may never come back from the dark side. He proved me wrong with this extremely funny, heartwarming comedy. Jennifer Aniston gives a good performance too proving that she may be the only one with a carreer after Friends. Not quite up there with Ace Ventura and Dumb and Dumber, but still one of his better movies. I'd say it's a little above Liar Liar. My final grade: B I've got a few more, but I wanted to limit it to 3 reviews in one post so it didn't get too long. I'll post more of my "in-depth" reviews later.
