My Vacation Movie/Show Reviews.

December 31st, 2009 § 0 comments § permalink

I hate going to the movie theater. I admit, I went to watch Avatar, but not because of the awesome storyline that got yanked from a 90s film, Ferngully. Instead, I went because I read about what James Cameron did since Titanic. I honestly think the cinematic experience was great. Of course, I had to ignore the plot as a factor.

Anyway, I recently subscribed to Netflix and I am very satisfied. I highly recommend it to those who want to catch up with all the shows without having to leave the comfort of your couch or even walking to the mailbox if it’s on the Instant Queue. I’m lazy. Can you tell? =)

  • Dexter (Season 1 and 2) – If you haven’t watched this series, start from the beginning. It’s just one of those shows you HAVE to watch! Not a kid-friendly show.
  • Jarhead – Meh, boring war movie. It’s more about the psyche of a soldier. I want more explosions.
  • Step Brothers – It was funny, but I wouldn’t watch it again.
  • Helvetica – If you like typography, graphics, and art, watch this!
  • Primer – Interesting view on time travel and the effects it has, no Butterfly Effect crap here.
  • Battlestar Galactica (old school) – It’s hilarious and awesome. I’ve watched the new series, but never the original. I’m on the fifth or sixth show and so far so good.

Time to get back and play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

21 aka Breaking Vegas aka Bringing Down the House.

I saw a preview to this movie and for some reason, the entire plot sounded totally familiar. Oh yeah, I’ve seen it before; it was on the History Channel and called “Breaking Vegas.”

So a friend of mine called me while I was on the bus, on my way home, yesterday and wanted to me to come out and watch a free pre-screening of it. Why not.

The movie was totally Hollywood-ized, but what can you expect? Movie was okay, and I’m glad I didn’t pay to watch it. I recommend to wait until it comes out to rent or just watch the documentary on the History Channel.

Both are based on the book “Bringing Down the House“, NOT to be confused with the movie, hahaha.

A Few Movie Reviews.

We got the trial for Full Access from Blockbuster and I think we’ve decided to keep it.

What I’ve watched so far:

Title Rating Comments
Appleseed 5 Awesome new age anime. Good plot, good everything.
Metropolis 1 Do not watch unless you have time to kill. Imagination gone a little too wild.
Illusionist 4 A bit slow at times, but very well written and directed.
Miami Vice 2 Kind of interesting, but a bit hard stay awake to it. I like the huge M82 sniper rifle they use, it’s a downgraded version of the M95 I use in Battlefield 2!

What I want to watch: 24 (all), Sopranos (all), The Godfather (all), Scarface, Snakes on a Plane, World Trade Center, Underworld, Underworld Evolution, Munich, All the King’s Men, Ice Age, Ice Age 2: The Meltdown, The Passion of The Christ, Fulltime Killer, Ghost in the Shell, Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, Irreversible, Schindler’s List, American History X, GoodFellas, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Citizen Kane, Why We Fight, For All Mankind.

Any more suggestions?
