“Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen ” 2009 by Michael Bay – Movie Review
Michael Bay has created a miracle and made the second part of the movie not worse (and nobody is able to do it better) than the first.
To cut the long story short, let me tell you what is waiting for the audience of “Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen”: Megan Fox in sexy ultra-short shorts, robot-bikes (not as steep as in the “Terminator 4: Salvation“, but still cool), a funny robot turns into a toy RC jeep, Megan Fox in sexy leather pants, the nano-robot composed of small metal balls, a giant robot composed of 5 or 7 machines, Megan Fox in sexy white pants, large one-eyed jaguar robot, a huge robot with the giant steel balls, an awesome sexy blonde robot in panties and a metal tail at the level of the coccyx, and much much more.
Okay, in short, that’s almost all the plot of the second Transformers movie.
‘Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen” (2009) Plot Overview
While the good robots, who has signed in to protect the Earth from evil robots, are finding their way through the bureaucracy of the Ministry of Defense, and the bad robots are regrouping gloomily somewhere near Saturn, the grown-up hero of the first “Transformers” (LaBeouf) argues with clearly too cool for him car mechanic girl (Fox) about who is the first to say “I love you”, and explains why he is not taking the animate “Chevrolet” to the college with him. Higher education, however, is limited to falling into bed with a pornographic student and the demolition of the library – the trumpet calls, the giant robot says: “Sam, we need you”.

“Who Framed Roger Rabbit” Movie Review
“Who Framed Roger Rabbit” Plot Summary
A toon hating detective is a cartoon rabbit’s only hope to prove his innocence when he is accused of murder.
A unique movie experience
‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ is a wonder in the art of making films. Because it mixes live-action and cartoons, it was a challenge to be made. But that’s exactly what makes it so distinguish and unique, especially considering that the idea works out so well. It’s a different and original movie experience, a real winner.
Yet, the film is more than a combination of live-action and cartoons. It has a dark atmosphere with lots of suspense, almost like a thriller. Classic humor isn’t forgotten either, with numerous funny lines and hysterical gags, as well as humorous characters. The joke about В«uncle ThumperВ» is one of the funniest, but there are many others. There’s also a hilarious piano acting with Donald Duck and Daffy Duck, which they play the same piano song as in Tom & Jerry’s short ‘The Cat Concerto’ and have their hilariously silly battle. In fact, the soundtrack of the movie is excellent, including Jessica Rabbit’s song ‘Why don’t you do right?’ and a suspense music very similar to one from the original ‘Back to the Future’.
Other movies that successfully mix live-action and cartoons are ‘Mary Poppins’, ‘Pete’s Dragon’ and ‘Bedknobs and Broomsticks’. Like ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’, those three movies combine this ‘marriage’ very well. On the other hand, other movies such as ‘Space Jam’ tried this idea but without the same success.
I believe that this movie was made in a unique moment of inspiration. The sceneries are great, the designs, the cartoons, the backgrounds, the details, the animation, the special effects, the artwork… everything was carefully made and I very much welcome that. This is one of the greatest live-action films from Disney.
Great actors make the difference too. Bob Hoskins is English but speaks with an excellent American accent, not to mention that he does the amazing thing of acting against the air. Joanna Cassidy, Charles Fleischer, Alan Tilvern, Stubby Kaye, Cristopher Lloyd and Kathleen Turner are awesome too. Kathleen Turner is the voice of Jessica Rabbit, with that sexy and sensual voice. And… guess what! Even the singer Frank Sinatra has a minor role in this film as the hilarious but useless Singing Sword. Even without looking at the credits, who wouldn’t recognize that great voice? Frank Sinatra’s voice is just as recognizable as Nat King Cole’s or Sterling Holloway’s.
As for the characters, the weasels are a perfect example of chronical stupidity. They’re humorous because they’re always laughing, even though they know what happens to someone who can’t stop laughing.
Marvin Acme is В«the king of the jokesВ», always humorous and cheerful and at his funniest with his mythical hand-buzzer. Angelo is an idiot, drunk and greedy guy, but funny at the same time. Dolores is a great character. R. K. Maroon is an interesting character with half a dark side and half a good side. Judge Doom is a great villain, humorous, mysterious and somewhat sinister. Roger Rabbit is hilarious and very jolly – that’s his only purpose as a cartoon, like he says himself. Jessica Rabbit is a very sexy cartoon, one of the most beautiful and sexiest ever – she’s not bad, she’s just drawn that way. Benny the Cab is funny. Baby Herman is a bit annoying – he might look innocent at first, but he is extremely rude and he loves to woo women. Eddie Valiant is another great character – grumpy, serious and funny sometimes. And he looks very much like my godfather in appearance.
The movie takes place in Hollywood, 1947. It does recreate the 40’s very well. That influence is notorious in many ways, including the cars used.
Before finishing, let me say that I like rabbits very much. They’re adorable and very cute animals, although in the cartoons they aren’t as cute – but they’re usually funny in cartoons.
This should definitely be on Top 250.

“You Don’t Mess with the Zohan” Plot Summary
An Israeli Special Forces Soldier fakes his death so he can re-emerge in New York City as a hair stylist. add synopsis
To this movie makers thank you.
To comment on this movie, there are two main sides: First one would be Adam Sandler, I have always liked his movies, for the light kind of comedy he presents, you watch and you laugh but you don’t expect to come out of the movie with a deeper message or something remotely philosophic to think about, I find that when Adam Sandler tries to go deep, his movies become quite depressing and nonsensical, ‘Click’ quickly comes to mind
The thing about the Zohan, is that I laughed a lot in some parts, but I find his affairs with the older ladies to be a bit repetitive and leaning towards downright BORING. Also the crude language and the oh-too-much ‘crotch’ view makes it quite impossible to let your kids watch the movie, which is a pity, because I find the hilarious fight scenes and the Zohan’s ’supernatural’ cool stunts would have been fun for kids to watch
Second point of view would be from an Arab point of view; I started watching this movie, preparing myself to get offended, and mind you I am a very broad minded person … However, I was pleasantly surprised, for the first time in my life I see a movie that does not picture Arabs as animal-like, heartless, brainless killing machines. They are just people, trying to make a living, even the avenging one has a reason, the Zohan stole his goat
Watching this movie, I tried to forget that I am an Arab, and I see that it is portraying – in a very silly and somehow inaccurate way – two opposing sides, and suggesting that they stop fighting, get over their differences to see that they are in fact similar
The movie makers get my personal ‘thank you’ for that, it is no different than watching a movie about the conflict between ‘black’ and ‘white’ people after the civil war, or about Americans and Japanese directly after WWII, there is no prejudices against Arabs here
For the very first time, someone has discovered that Arabs are human beings too. So THANK YOU.

The continuing bawdy adventures of a group of friends reuniting after their first year of college. add synopsis
American Pie 2
It is almost as good as the first one, with all the teenagers from American Pie reunited after graduating from college. Jim (Jason Biggs) has heard from Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth) that she is coming to see him, so he seeks ’sex’ advice from his prom date Michelle (Alyson Hannigan). Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas) is still an idiot and still trying to be friends with Vicki (Tara Reid). Oz (Chris Klein) is speaking to Heather (Mena Suvari) on the phone, they even have short phone sex. Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) is still obsessed with Stifler’s Mom (Jennifer Coolidge) ever since prom, and Stifler (Seann William Scott) is still the loud and hilarious jock. Anyway, the basic story is they rent a beach house and spend summer there, and eventually do a party that they will never forget. My favourite bit is Jim gluing himself to ‘himself’ (his penis). Filled with more good laughs and more short scenes with Jim’s Dad (Eugene Levy), this is a good sequel. Good!

Bloody Good Movie
I think that this movie was horribly underrated in the UK, and it doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. I saw the animated series before the movie, and got interested in watching it, but as I have a phobia of vomit, I was incredibly shocked when I saw Bill Murray throw up all over Molly Shannon with visual and graphic sounds. Still, I plucked up the courage to watch the rest of the movie, which I really enjoyed. However, to this day I have to skip the vomit scene on my DVD. I liked the fact that it was a classic ‘cop type’ story, with a baddie, a love interest, a rookie cop and a partnership too. I thought that David Hyde Pierce played the part of Drix brilliantly and Chris Rock was superb as Osmosis. I also like the fact that the movie teaches kids that it’s important to take care of yourself
My friend and I still quote ‘You gotta get spiffy!’ all the time. I also really loved the soundtrack, I went frantic searching for the CD!

“American Wedding” Movie Review
“American Pie: The Wedding” Plot Summary
The third film in the American Pie series deals with the wedding of Jim and Michelle and the gathering of their families and friends, including Jim’s old friends from high school and Michelle’s little sister.
A Grand Finale!!!
American Wedding is the funniest film in the American Pie series. Most of the original gang is back to see Jim and Michelle tie the knot. But, the two characters have to overcome a couple of obstacles. One obstacle is making sure Stifler behaves himself. Does he… not really. Stifler throws a bachelor party when Michelle’s parents are supposed to turn up, eats dog crap while saying it’s chocolate, losing the ring, and having sex with Jim’s grandmother. Stifler is by far the most funniest character in the film, especially when he plays nice boy. Jim and his father are funny, too. I liked the part when Jim shaves his privates and throws the shavings out the window and into people’s mouths and wedding cake. The characters are original and hilarious. The acting was great, so was the directing. As with the first two films, there is a great soundtrack. I recommend seeing this grand finale. I rate this film a 10/10.

“Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” Plot Summary
Four London working class stiffs pool their money to put one in a high stakes card game, but things go wrong and they end up owing half a million pounds and having one week to come up with the cash.
For $8 million, this is a fricking monument of 1990’s film. The first time I saw it I laughed at most of the jokes and followed the plot with pleasure. That’s more than I can say about any number of movies in the 1990’s that cost ten times as much to make and starred pricey talent. The editing is clever and cute. The casting is just short of flawless. Of the four principles, only Bacon seemed consistent to me. The minor parts were sometimes spectacular, esp. Big & Little Chris and Barry the Baptist
There are some legitimate complaints about this movie. The big one is that it doesn’t really go anywhere or mean anything. It seems like an awful lot of flash and talent to end up saying nothing about anything. But um it’s not like Lock, Stock is trying to be anything it isn’t, so maybe it’s not a valid critique after all. Considering how long Tarrantino’s influence has been around, it’s a little unfair to call Ritchie on imitating him. There are some similarities large casts, distinct characters, clever dialogue, rapid shifts in narratives from one string to another and shifting in time, and few other things. I think the problem is that years of dumbing down by Hollywood have almost eliminated all these things. The influence is there certainly, but it would not seem as pronounced if there were any other hugely exposed filmmakers in recent memory that put as much emphasis on dialogue and character besides Tarantino
I haven’t watched MTV since the mid-1980’s, so the style of Lock Stock and Snatch didn’t seem trite to me. Some people I talked to said that the film style was too much like the average car commercial or pop video, which is getting the influence backwards, but I could see how those associations would spoil the experience.

“Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over” Movie Review
“Spy Kids 3″ Plot Summary
Carmen’s caught in a virtual reality game designed by the Kids’ new nemesis, the Toymaker (Stallone). It’s up to Juni to save his sister, and ultimately the world.
A good kid’s movie with something for adults
I have not yet seen the first two in this series, but liked this film for what it is. First and foremost, this is a movie for kids. I went with two kids, one 8, the other 11. The younger one loved the movie and the 3-D aspect and couldn’t wait to log on to the website after she got home (difficult website, though, and she soon lost interest). The older one liked it also, but commented about the ‘Spy Kids’ series, ‘They keep getting dumber and dumber.’ Very young children might be scared by some of the flashy scenes and have trouble with the 3-D part. So, the target audience is pretty narrow, but there are a lot of 5-12 year-old kids out there with parents who need to chaperone them….Now, for adults, this is a lot less painless to sit through than most movies for kids. Ricardo Montalban, for my money, gives a splendid performance and just steals the show from everyone else involved. He gets off a few classic lines (‘I can do much, much more than that’) and, for those who know his history, a few references to his earlier screen incarnations (‘Don’t touch that, it is Corinthian leather.’) Obviously, the kids won’t appreciate his history, but he is an outstanding actor who fills his grandfather role nicely
Sylvester Stallone gives an amusing performance. Selma Hayek is pretty as always, though she doesn’t do much. After that, the supporting cast is pretty low-key. I thought Courtney Jines, who plays Demetra, gave a fine, laid back kind of performance that was perfect for the part. Nobody else really registered very strongly, the stars of the show are the situation and the special effects
The putative stars, the ‘Spy Kids’ themselves, are innocuous and no threat to win any acting awards. I can see why children relate to them, they are portrayed as average kids who are not superior beings or anything like that. Unfortunately, they also are quickly moving out of the ‘kid’ category, so I can understand why the people behind the series have said this is the last in the line
The 3-D gimmick worked for me. I stopped noticing the blue-red glasses after a while. Others say they strain the eyes, but they did not strain mine. I think it was a brilliant decision, although to tell the truth, the 3-D was not that big a deal. I have seen good 3-D, and this is minor league, but it was fun and something different for the kids
As for the plot, well, it involves entering a video game (as in the classic ‘Tron’ and so many subsequent films) and solving a problem. Other than that, it makes no sense, especially the resolution, but I’m sure nobody spent too much time trying to make the plot mean anything. It is fun and has a lot of color and action, so the kids will love it. This is sure to do blockbuster business on dvd as a gift to children. I laughed a few times, so it doesn’t have to be like going to the dentist for an adult, either. Recommended for kids and adults who have to see a kid’s movie with them.

“Big Fish” Plot Summary
A story about a son trying to learn more about his dying father by reliving stories and myths his father told him about himself.
Beautiful and Unexpected
As a lifelong Burton fan, I approached this film with high hopes, and no trepidation whatsoever. Honestly, I have never met a Tim Burton film I haven’t liked for one reason or another, but Big Fish is only the second to make me cry (Edward Scissorhands being the first). I was expecting a deep storyline, wonderful cast of characters, and little confusion from time to time, but I got so much more than these things. We have all had a ‘big fish’, it’s the one that grows and grows until it takes on a life of it’s own, before long you don’t need to tell the story anymore, because that fish is just one step ahead of you. Bloom didn’t lie, he told his own version of the truth, a heartwarming, romantic, and enthralling truth. The cast was nothing short of stellar (especially Billy Crudup making one of his rather rare on-screen appearances). The characters made Big Fish what it is, each and every one influencing the progression of an incredible story you can only hope holds some truth. The elements of love, friendship, and family are embedded in the symbolism and dialogue. The visuals are captivating and awe inspiring. No one does it like Tim Burton, and Burton will struggle to ever create a film to match this…I would (and do) recommend it to everyone.

“Dogma” Plot Summary
An abortion clinic worker with a special heritage is called upon to save the existence of humanity from being negated by two renegade angels trying to exploit a loophole and re-enter Heaven.
Great film, not up to the standard of Smith’s previous work
Those of you who are fans of Kevin Smith’s previous works (Clerks, Mallrats & Chasing Amy)may find this area familiar in some parts and unnerving and perhaps even commercial by comparison. Dogma sees fallen angels Bartleby and Loki (Ben Affleck and Matt Damon)attempting to make their way back into heaven via a newly instituted catholic dogma. The problem with this lies in the fact that if they are successful, they would have overturned a ruling by God, hence God is always right and if proven wrong would result in the undoing of existence. The familiar presence of Jay and Silent Bob is comforting and ensures that some of the essence Smith’s earlier work stays put, however at times this film dissents into areas that seem out of Smith’s depth. There are some surprisingly touching moments which implies that Smith gave a great deal of thought, similar to that of Chasing Amy. In general it is a great all round cast, (Linda Fiorentino,Chris Rock, Alan Rickman) and it is obvious that whilst writing this Smith had his tongue firmly in cheek.
