Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
Get Some Action
Aspects of this take on the 1970s hit TV series are similar to the original show :Angels Dylan, Natalie and Alex still work for Charlie and interface with Bosley. They still flip their hair, stop traffic with a smile and kick butt. The differences are the unsubtle humor, the martial arts training and the high-tech premise: This time, they're hot on the trail of stolen software.
I fear Diaz's bouncy and swirling behind hypnotized me into giving this four stars.
That and Rockwell's unbelievable dancing skills.
And Bill Murray.
Ah, crap, I just love this film!
"Charlie's Angels," based on the 1970s television program, attempts to blend comedy, action, and style into a seamlessly entertaining spectacle. While that attempt does not fully bear fruit, McG's film is watchable and goofily fun. The cast is game, the action beats are suitable, and, though the whole thing never finds a graceful balance, the film manages to mildly engage.
Built around a team of three secret agents, "Charlie's Angels" throws the trio in harm's way in a plot that finds them hunting down pilfered software. The story is a capable foundation for the cast to crack wise and kick tail, though it is nothing more than that.
Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu star as the angels of…
Corny, sexist, racist, and a weird delight.
Yeah, it's mostly a series of music videos tied loosely together with a fairly well worn plot, but that's not a big issue for me. In fact, I'm sort of impressed with a movie that goes to as much trouble as Charlie's Angels does for such relatively insignificant moments. It's a game of dress up (not just the angels themselves but the sets, the action, everything), and I find myself weirdly enamored with the film's dedication to reinventing its location and style essentially from moment to moment.
In particular, the fact that this film includes an opening credits that hints at a number of adventures from previous "episodes" just tickles me. Those shots…
This extremely tongue-in-cheek action comedy does not give a damn about its plot, and so why should we?
The fight scenes are blazin’, the bods are jigglin’, and the energy level is absolutely soarin’. At an extremely brisk 98 minutes, “Charlie’s Angels” boasts some snazzy performances by all involved, especially Luke Wilson (always immensely likable) and Crispin Glover (truly creepy).
My favorite angel? Well, who wouldn’t want to “fight crime” with the irresistible Drew Barrymore?
This was on TV and I was just gonna stick around to see Tom Green's portrayal of the greatest character in film "The Chad". Turns out this is the perfect late night time waster. The cast is unreal, there's lots of scantily clad women, and it's occasionally really funny. Reeks of early 2000's trash. It's not good but I'm never mad at it.
The Chad is Great.
A movie that you know will be absolute crap before you even watch it. I was only in it for the babes, and boy were they hot in this. Of course, it was really their only asset. The terrible script did nothing for them. One star for Lucy Liu and those cheesey but undoubtedly kick-ass action sequences.
Shamelessly far-fetched, this film holds such a great representation of female solidarity with fearless kicking ass and a ridiculous display of inadequate authority, all perfected with an awesome soundtrack.
For being what it is, this is actually a very solid film. The ladies are gorgeous, Bill Murray is hilarious, and the action sequences are just intense enough to keep you watching. McG knows action and the fact that he can poke fun at the genre is enough to pull this off successfully.
It's amazing how this movie is so problematic yet so entertaining at the same time.
I like this film and I don't care who knows!
Meh, what's there to say? It's a Hollywood blockbuster trying to squeeze the life force out of a classic.
Couldn't stop smiling. Loved everything about it- so much that I reminded half an hour that I didn't feel I'd given my full attention to. I can feel a new favorite feel good taking root.
All I could think about was how much better this movie would've been rated R.
the scene where drew barrymore beats the shit out of a room full of guys whilst song 2 by blur plays might be the best thing I've ever seen
Fuck you, McG
I rate these movies higher than they deserve because they've changed me as a person.
This is a work in…
