Men in Black II

Posted by knobbygirl

Barry Sonnenfeld could do worse than than continuing to release 'Men in Black' movies for the rest of his life. In fact, the world would be a much better place if he did. Keeping in mind some of the other dreck that he's unleashed on humanity (Wild Wild West and Big Trouble, I'm looking at you), he may eventually be forgiven for his sins. Men in Black II is almost the same exact film as it's predecessor.

The Matrix Reloaded

Posted by knobbygirl

Wow.

Usually, my first paragraph is much more clever than that, but I am a bit at a loss for words right now. Needless to say, I was more than adequately impressed by The Matrix Reloaded, as was most of the country this past weekend.

X2: X-Men United

Posted by knobbygirl

So shoot me, I am the only person on the planet who didn't like X2 better than the first one. Bah.

Don't get me wrong, I liked it a lot. A whole lot, a lot! It just seemed to meander so much. And it was soooooooo long. Not Lord of the Rings long, but long nonetheless. And there definitely wasn't as much Wolverine as in the first one. However, naked Wolverine did make up for a lot....

Evil Dead II

Posted by knobbygirl

It's not my fault no one wanted to watch Transylvania 6-500!

It took almost an hour to pick the Sunday movie today. After going through every single DVD we own, we decided on this one. Everyone had seen it except my sister-in-law, and - from the look on her face throughout the film, she probably should have kept it that way.

So the Wherehouse Music down the road went out of business. A couple months ago, DVDs were 40% off, so I picked up Bad Taste and the Hairspray/Pecker combo. A few weeks ago, DVDs went down to 70% off - and what do I pick up? Girls School Screamers and Toxie III, of course. I swear that Toxie wasn't there the first time around, or I would have gotten him then...

Star Trek: Nemesis

Posted by knobbygirl

It's December 18, 2002. The Two Towers opened today. I just happened to have the day off work, so what better way to spend the day...than seeing the new Star Trek movie???

Seriously, we intended to go see Star Trek today - we've been planning on it for a week or so. Not that we don't want to see more Hobbit adventures, but the lines...no way, jose! Besides, I think we may want to catch a night viewing at the IMAX....

Austin Powers in Goldmember

Posted by knobbygirl

Although I laughed my ass off, it is getting a little bit stale.

Some jokes just aren't funny the third time around. Luckily, there were enough new twists on these old jokes to keep me from pulling my hair out while watching this film. The Dr. Evil/Mini Me rap was even funnier than the musical number from the previous film. Likewise, the exchanges between Dr. Evil and his son, Scott are still really funny and I like the new relationship dynamic between the two of them.

Blade II

Posted by knobbygirl

Whistler is alive!

Actually, I was surprised at how well bringing him back worked. Of course, I knew from all the commercials that he was back - and that alone gave me misgivings about the film - I hate it when filmmakers just ignore it when people die! But making him a vampire prisoner was semi-plausible, in as much as vampires are plausible at all.
