    10 Things I Hate About You 1999

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Jul, 2010

    10 things I hate about this movie.

    1. Andrew Keegan -Oh how I hate this boy in any movie he is in.
    2. How we did not get to see Joseph Gordan Levitt without his shirt.
    3. The dad being so moronic about his daughter going out on a date.
    4. Was it really necessary for Julia Stiles’ character to get drunk at the party, even though it showed how messed up you get…was it necessary?
    5. Heath Ledger’s long…

    Not very powerful of a movie but quite enjoyable. This is a movie that is based on only the story, script and performances of the actors. It doesn’t rely on scenery or gimmicks to hide flaws in the story. Everyone was excellent in it. I loved it.

    When is the scariness going to happen? All the best parts were shown in the preview. The movie was not scary, not even a little. The premise of the movie was good. Good story and actors were good. But it just was not scary enough.

    I really enjoyed this movie. The humor was not slapstick but it was still a little out there. Things that could go wrong do. It was nice to see a lot of young people like Treat Williams. The movie was totally clever. I was told it was a real dud on twitter, but I didn’t think so. We even like Spielberg making fun of his other movies.

    Disney magic at it’s finest. This movie had lots of action and suspense, but bit too long… and Kirk Douglas singing? YES HE DOES! For the 50′s, this movie was well made and much better than using the magic that some directors try to use now. Forget CGI, this special effects in this movie were 100% pure and real. It takes creativity to make a movie like this without computers. It was awesome.

    ★★★½ Watched 06 Sep, 2010

    I am still not too understanding of the movie yet, have not found a true purpose. I dont think this movie is meant to be understood… I will say that for a first time watcher of this movie, I was visually stimulated by the visionary that was Kubrick for this film. Watched on blu-ray the transfer was amazing, you could not tell the difference between a movie from today to this from 1968, not even the people took me back.…

    21 had it’s good points and bad points. Certain places it seemed to lag, but I think those needed to be in there so you could identify with the characters and understand how everything comes into play. The movie kept your interest and loved the twist ending to it. Overall, this was a fun movie to watch.

    This is such a downer of a movie, but the acting is excellent by Sandra Bullock. She is totally on as an alcoholic and semi-drug user who goes to rehab and becomes friends with her rehab friends and changes her life after fighting the system. I cry each time I watch it. There are a lot of fun lighthearted scenes and again Sandra does a great job.

    I really enjoyed this sequel. The cars were fast, chicks were hot, and the action was non stop. I cringed as the crashes were plentiful. Nice adrenaline rush for the end of the night.

    ★★★ Watched 24 Apr, 2011

    The first time I watched this movie, I fell asleep and I understand why I did. While this movie is cute and clever and contained two hotties, this borderlines on boring. Even though they tell you where you are in the day count, it is still hard to remember. I enjoyed it, especially know that I am a Chloe Moretz fan, but it isn’t that high on a favorite list.

    The last movie of Brittany Murphy was pretty darn good. I was glad that she actually left on a high note even though it was not highly publicized. The movie kept me guessing what was going on and was feeling a lot like she was… very confused. But it turned out good… Nice job and RIP Brittany Murphy.

    I seriously wanted to hate this film, but as much as I dislike Taylor Lautner, the movie was pretty decent.
