The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

Posted by knobbygirl

There are not even any mummies in this film!

Sure, they CALL them mummies, but they're not really mummies -they're Terra Cotta Warriors, like the ones I saw at the HMNS a few years ago. Why the fuck do they keep calling them mummies? Since when do mummies throw flaming balls of mud? China even has real mummies! So what if they're white people mummies?

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian

Posted by knobbygirl

I think I am falling in love with Amy Adams.

She's just so cute and likable and earnest and smiley and cute...Did I say cute? She is the celluloid equivalent of a puppy trying to lick ice cream off its nose. I usually abhor cute, but there is something REAL about Amy Adams. I just wish I could stop confusing her with Isla Fisher. I'm still not going to try to sit through Julie & Julia any time soon.

Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay

Posted by knobbygirl

In honor of 4/20, I present to you a film worthy of being watched on 4/20...

In my review of Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny, I complain about it being a stoner comedy that is probably only funny when stoned. Some stoner comedies, however, are hilarious no matter what. Harold and Kumar are still funny, no matter what state of consciousness you are in. (They're not as funny escaping from Guantanamo Bay as they are going to White Castle, but still pretty fucking funny nonetheless.)

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Posted by knobbygirl

Even my three year old liked the first one better than this one.

Oh, he didn't say it in so many words, but I could tell that he was bored. He was glued to the couch for the first one, but after about 30 minutes into this one he made his way to the computer desk and started banging away on the keyboard. If I hadn't been stuck on the couch breastfeeding, I would have taken his place.

Clerks II

Posted by knobbygirl

They always say that "You can't go home again" - but Kevin Smith sure has made a career out of it, hasn't he? He's turned the characters from Clerks into a nice cottage industry. The guys from Clerks have their own animated series and comic book and then there's Jay and Silent Bob. The general public has made it quite clear that they're just not interested in films outside of the Askewniverse - shit, I haven't seen Jersey Girl either. I can't fault Smith for going with what he knows in making Clerks II.
