I saw it on the plane when I went on vacation a few months ago, easily the most boring/worst film I've seen in years. To add insult to inury, there were technical problems with the sound on board (hurrah for '70s planes without onboard entertainment), so they had to restart the bastard three times.
The Reno gang is invited to a police convention in Miami. The Reno crew runs late to the second day of the convention, but every single police officer at the convention is horribly poisoned and later quarantined in a building. The Reno crew are the only police officers left to protect and serve Miami.
Well this movie is really as dumb as it sounds. There was nothing that was really thought out about the movie, but i have to say, it was pretty damn funny. Problem is that there are a few long pauses before real laughs, and alot of them are just chuckles. To me, this seemed like a 90 minute episode of Reno 911!, which isnt a bad thing since im a big fan of the show. There was a shocking amount of nudity in this movie that i wasnt expecting, nothing major but it totally caught me off guard. Overall it was a pretty average comedy, worth the one time, maybe a few more if you're a fan of the show. It did have a hilarious chase scene though.
The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)
The true story of Chris Gardner. A great story of a man who goes from rags to riches, and how he overcomes the hardships that life threw at him.
This movie is just amazing, its really touching movie, maybe a little more from me since my parents went through a similar rags to riches story, but to a much much lesser extent (not rags, and not riches), so i can relate. But the acting is just amazing, both by Will Smith and his son. The character development is awesome, you really get attached to the two main characters in the the movie. Only problem is that i know this is based on alot of facts, about the man's life, but there were some things that they made really far fetched, they just made it seem like he had TERRIBLE luck in every possible aspect. Great movie overall though.
Fun fact - At the very end when Will Smith and his son are walking away from the camera and talking, another man in a suit walks behind them, and Will Smith turns around to take a look at the man. That is the real Chris Gardner.
I saw an interestng documentary last night. I can't write the title, but it starts with an 'F', has 4 letters and rhymes with BUCK.
YEs. Its actually a movie.
Documentary about the origins of the word and how it is used in society today. Why are people offended, why is it so universally understood around the world Etc.
Lots of interviews of celebs talking about what the word means to them, how they use it or why they don't. Ice-T was the best interview. He rules.
Review: A pretty decent movie. They also delve into the 'bird' hand gesture and how that affects people. They interview normal people on the street as well as celebs. Its funny to think that mature grown up people won't even say the word and are embarrased by it. I had to laugh at the conservatives that wouldn't say it on camera. This one lady the so called "Mrs. Manners" actually unhooked her mic and walked off the set she was so mad.
They say the word 800 times during the film...and its weird how it sort of starts to lose its power afterwhile. Makes you more aware of your own swearing though! Today I counted myself using the word 5 times so far!
edit/ADDENDUM: Saw 3 was total crap. As was 1 and 2. Waste of film
I thought Eternal Sunshine was pretty good. You had to suspend disbelief in a few places and it got a little too whacky with the people dancing half-nude on the bed while Jim Carey is getting his mind erased under them...
