The Muppets (2011)
I think it is relevant to make something clear: I am not a Muppets fan. I know Kermit (Cocas for the Portuguese people), I think Miss Piggy is cute, but I am not properly a fan for the Muppets show. Also, I am not fan of dramas. Yeah, IMDB says it is a Comedy, a Musical. Yeah, Musical it is. But it is a Drama. There are two or three jokes in more than 100 minutes of movie. The rest is just plain Drama.
As a side note, Amy Adams is just cute. That is why I chose this screenshot, with these subtitles… how can one just forget about her?
The special effects are more advanced than in the previous Ghost Rider movie, but they aren’t better. And the way the movie was recorded, in a way that seems to add dynamic, sucks. At least, I did not like. The story is.. meh… nothing special, and with lots of flaws. And, at the end, it is not clear what is the status of Ghost Rider.
Talking about girls, one do not just simply replace Eva Mendes. And one do not just replace Eva Mendes by some Violante Placido. She has a nice pair of eyes… but Eva Mendes has.. erm.. two great pairs, not just eyes.
Rachel Nichols @ G.I. Joe
Really? Well, not a true bad story. Lots of action and special effects (and computer graphics). Ah, and lots of technology. Usually I get frustrated with this kind of movie, and this is the case too. So much technology, so great weapons, and in the end they all end up fighting with blades or fire. Whatever.
The idea is: watch this for the action, the few jokes, and ignore everything else. And take the chance to see Rachel Nichols, aka Scarlett. Not Scarlett Johansson, but you can’t have everything.
The Big Bang Theory Gang
A friend suggested me to watch The Big Bang Theory. In fact, I had that in mind for some time, but the poke made me watch it earlier. The sitcom format makes it a good series to watch: just 20 minutes, of fun. Already watched two and I am really carving it. Also, I am really interested in the Paid Masturbation Process… it might be interesting.
Gross, fun and with boobies. Piranha 3DD delivers everything he promises: piranhas and 3DD boobs. Story is mostly nonexistent, some situations can be predicted (like the… spoilers… piranha on dick), but at the end I am not sure if this is more a horror or a comic movie. Horror probably because of the amount of red paint, comic because of the amount of stupid situations they can create with piranhas. And David Hasselhoff playing of himself is kind of funny too (but probably too many scenes with him).
At the end, I voted 6 in 10, mostly because of the story. It could get a little better with little effort.
Ghost Rider (2007)
I had seen parts of this movie before, in a party. Well, I watched parts of it, and I added it to the list of movies to watch. I liked it (9 in 10 in IMDB). Not because of Eva Mendes (gorgeous) or because Nicholas Cage is a great actor. Both help, but the special effects make the movie still more interesting. The story is nothing great, but is good enough. At the end, I love when an action movie has humor, and there are some great scenes. Soon news on the sequel.
A bunch of small and incomplete stories with, supposedly, some humor, glued together in a movie by a stupid plot. The movie sucks as a movie. A few of the stories are fun, or at least, let you give some laughs. For instance, the scene on the screenshot, or the new iBabe in black, to give customers a color choice, or even the “poop on me” story. Not that I liked every detail of those stories, but they have some fun. Also, the Tampax advertisement is great. I had seen it before in youtube, and though it was a true advertisement. Shame it isn’t. It is just, just great.
Gwyneth Paltrow @ Iron Man 3
Iron Men 3… erm… sorry for the confusion, Iron Man 3… but the amount of man in iron confuse me. What can I tell? well, worst of the three, worst than Avengers. Good for some jokes, but the story is quite bad in essence. Also, finishes in a not clear way… if Tony Stark’s heart generator (or whatever name it has) was needed for him to survive, how is it possible to remove it? And removing it, how will he power future armors? Yeah, although the ending can be understood as the end of Iron Man, it seems it will not be that way… so, lot to be explained in the next season… erm… sequel. My vote was quite generous at IMDB: 7 in 10.
Teresa Palmer @ Warm Bodies
Let me start stating something you already know for some time: I am quite stupid. Yeah. I needed to read in a comment to relate the two main characters to Romeo (named R in Warm Bodies) and Juliet (named Julie).
Well, regarding the movie, and although it is classified as a comedy I disagree. Romance, yes, it is. Horror not really, but I can understand why. Action, yeah, why not. And Drama, please. Well if in the last movie I’ve watched true love is the key to nymphomaniac cure, in Warm Bodies, love is the key to zombie cure. But if you think a little, any dead guy would rise in the sight of Teresa Palmer. So, no news there
A drama about a Nymphomaniac that does sex with strangers without any pleasure. A boy gets in love with her and helps her to cure herself. Although erotic, this movie has some interesting and educational points of view. Namely the fact that there are people with different kinds of psychological diseases (not necessarily nymphomaniacs), that might make them do strange or stupid things, but that in most cases can be cured with love.
Other than this aspect, Christina Lindberg was very cute in 1973, and the movie presents her in her full glory.
