THE WAT SHORT AND TO-THE-POINT MOVIE REVIEWS!

Without giving any of these movies away, here goes:

Went to see Disturbia last week and it is a definite movie to wait for and watch on DVD. Shia LaBeouf is in most of the film and this is the picture that has now catapulted him to stardom for sure. He is terrific and quite adorable in it! He is so young too, a mere 20 years old! DAMNIT! I hate young successful people in the entertainment business! ARGH! But yeah, Shia is not gorgeous by any means, but is charming and cute to behold in this thriller which is a decent suspense film. Carrie-Ann Moss from The Matrix plays his mom, and she looks good; a definite MILF.

I also watched The Queen on DVD and wasn't all that impressed, but it was okay nonetheless and quite insightful as to how the royals supposedly live their daily lives, especially during the days following the death of Princess Di. Helen Mirren was very convincing as Queen Elizabeth (for which she won an Oscar), and portrayed the old bag with more emotion than most of us are used to seeing; an actually nice and down-to-earth old crow that wrestles constantly with how to please the British people and serve them as best possible. Prince Charles was portrayed as a real wuss and with the most heart out of all the royals; alas he knocked up Diana with two boys and felt horrible for a good while after her demise. Only natural I suppose. The real asshole here is Elizabeth's husband Philip. What a jerk! LOL! Pompous stuck-up uncaring buttwipe! Anyway, The Queen; worth watching but not that special in my humble opinion.

Here's the winner though: Little Children, now on DVD! WOW! What a remarkable motion picture this is! Very similar to American Beauty in observing the problems "normal" people/families face living in modern American suburbs. Patrick Wilson is a bona fide hottie, I couldn't take my eyes off of this dude--he is red hot and has some real steamy erotic hard-on producing scenes with Kate Winslet who is terrific in this picture as always. Kate is a Brit who really knows how to play American women well, and she makes some damn good movies! Love the story and it had me transfixed from beginning to end, full of twists/turns and surprises I really was not expecting. How wasn't this movie not awarded more Oscars I ask? DAMN GOOD FLICK! Ya betta rent and watch this! I'm serious! Worth every freakin' minute!

Did I mention actor Patrick Wilson is a facking hottie?

Yeah, I did.

I saw 5 dvd's over the weekend.

Born In East L.A,The Good Shepherd,Willow,Sid and Nancy,and Next Friday

Missed Spiderman, and still didn't see The Condemned.

I'll definitely have to check out the Queen..at least out of curiosity.

Seeing movies often comes down to timing. Seeing them right after there's a lot of buzz can really ruin it for you. I tend to want to see them before anyone else knows about them or after the buzz has died. Or to find out something everyone has panned turns out to be really good.

I finally saw Dream Girls this weekend (yes, I know, gay card officially suspended for waiting so long)and enjoyed it more than I expected. Fearing that as an American Idol alum Jennifer Hudson would be way over the top, I was surprised that she was one Oscar winner who really worthy of the honor.

The Queen was best seen early on, and it is a bit amazing to think that a crowned head of Europe is the underdog you're cheering for.

Oh, I'm glad you mentioned Little Children; I've been wanting to rent that...

I watched He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not (French film with Amelie actress...). It's older, but if you haven't seen it, it's creepy as happy French films go...

MILF--HAHA, someones has been watching too much porn!
Yeah I heard Disturbia was a bit of a dog, although I am a little intrigued anyway.

bv said...

Agreed. Little Children is good movie and both actors are excellent. I found it very French for an American movie, don't you think?

Your blog is fun. Well done.

Little Children was a great movie. I must say, I read the book before I even heard it was going to be a movie and recommended it to everyone I knew. Amazing read, great movie. :)

Just checked out your review of SHORTBUS, I do remember that post well, I kind of zero'd in on the topic--suicide/death--and forgot about the movie that inspired the post...SO SUBLIMINAL ooohhhAAAHHH

Your post must have subconsciously affected my Netflix pix

I really want to see Little Children. Everyone says it was AMAZING.
The Queen was good, but I agree, not all it was cracked up to be. The part with the moose (elk? moose? I don't know) in the country was mad cheesy.

I saw Hot Fuzz this weekend, which was AWESOME! So hilarious. kind of slow paced at times, but LOL funny!

Christopher said...

I saw Disturbia in a theater full of teenagers, which made the movie very "interesting"...

I like (and agree with) your wrap up of "The Queen"...

xxxxxx (them's kisses)

I'm going to see Disturbia tomorrow night. Hope it's as good as you say...the LeBeouf is lovely, I must agree.
I actually liked The Queen, but not all THAT much. Helen Mirren was fantastic in it, but she always is.
