I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Austin Powers in Goldmember
He's still evil... He's still deadly... and he's still surrounded by frickin' idiots!
The world's most shagadelic spy continues his fight against Dr. Evil. This time, the diabolical doctor and his clone, Mini-Me, team up with a new foe -- '70s kingpin Goldmember. While pursuing the team of villains to stop them from world domination, Austin gets help from his dad and an old girlfriend.
When it comes to comedy Mike Myers is my guilty pleasure and it's easy to see why. From the silliness of Wayne's World and Saturday Night Live through the Austin Powers films to his voice work on Shrek, he's shown a chameleon-like talent for reinvention. Full of creativity and always ready to take on more that one role if required, it was Austin Powers that cemented his place among not only Canada's best comedians but the film world in general.
This third installment of Jay Roach's comic trilogy has one of the best opening sequences in a comedy. Featuring a host of big name stars lampooning Austin Powers characters in a film tribute, this had the likes of Tom Cruise,…
Cruise Control: A Tom Cruise-Athon Film #1.
As some of you may know, Tom Cruise is my favourite actor and in the lead-up to Edge Of Tomorrow, a new action film with Mr Cruise, I will be watching as many movies of his as I can, starting with the 28 that I own.
Austin Powers In Goldmember is first, and that is because it's not a Tom Cruise film. He has a fun cameo and it's one of the most delightful parts of the film, for me, but it basically serves as a film to even out the 28. Because 27 didn't feel right.
However, it did give me a reason to revisit the best of the Austin Powers films. Silly? Yes. Childish at times? Indeed. Unfunny? Definitely not, as I always laugh at this wonderfully self-aware parody of the spy genre (a genre I don't really like in the first place).
I dont know how to be no crib on MTV.
God only knows. Got my Mini-me in the GP see how it goes.
Evil's all that I see... you ask me my name? D to the Rizzo, E to the Vizzo, I to the Lizzo, I'm a crazy (its a hard knock
life) mother (beep) y'all knew that.
Austin caught me in the first act that's all backwords, whats with that?
So I'll make a prophesy from the dogs to the mini me.
Gimme an escalade, 2 way bling-bling on Ebay. Domino, mother (beep)
Its a hard knock life (yea) for us
Its a hard knock life
(stick that in your pipe and smoke it)for us.
Steada treated (uh huh)…
A hell of a lot funnier than I remember it - one sequence had me in tears. Can get occasionally annoying, but hey, that's Mike Myers. Still great though in most ways, especially with the fourth wall gags.
Funny! Every time
Always good for a few cheap laughs, and some that are actually earned, the Austin Powers franchise is a friendly reminder of my immature childhood, with Goldmember the embodiment of what I thought was funny when I was 11.
Not as good as previous two but great final and that opening sequence is gold
I love golllllllllllld
They can't all be winners. It is an inspired first 5 minutes, though.
I liked it at first, but then I realised it sucked.
Not on par with the other two. At all.
p not as good as the other two
This 2002 American spy comedy film is the third and final installment of the Austin Powers film series, directed by Jay Roach, and starring Mike Myers, Beyoncé Knowles, Verne Troyer, Seth Green, Michael York, Robert Wagner, Mindy Sterling and Sir Michael Caine.
Dr.Evil (Myers) and his evil team devise their new evil plan; travel back to 1975 and hire the criminal genius Johan van der Smut, aka “Goldmember”, to create a tractor beam to pull a meteor to Earth, striking the polar icecaps and flooding the world. But finally one-step ahead, British Intelligence Agent Austin Powers (Myers) storms his Hollywood lair and arrests Evil.
But Basil Exposition (York) has word that Goldmember has kidnapped Austin’s father Nigel (Caine) and so…
The best of the three, Mike Myers is freaking heavy, he is unbearable, even Tom Cruise is better.
