Rapid Fire Reviews

This is not to approve or disapprove any of these movies, necessarily, and it’s not to say that some of these movies don’t deserve more detailed reviews in the future. I just wanna try something different – so here it goes.

Dumb & Dumber: One of the greatest dream sequences in movie history.

Little Shop Of Horrors (1986): Few villains will serenade you with a catchy song and back-up singers while trying to kill you.

The Quest (Jean-Claude Van Damme): A guy from France, trained in Thailand, enters a tournament representing America.

2001 Space Odyssey: It’s a bit slow.

The Chinese Connection: “I have an idea – let’s beat them up.”

The Protector (Tony Jaa) : It’s like that elephant episode of The Simpsons gone out of hand.

Kill Bill Vol.1: It’s like Mortal Kombat on steroids.

Monsters Vs. Aliens: Bob annoys me. He’s presented as not having a brain, but his style of stupidity is more suited to someone who has a brain but puts information together wrong. There’s a difference!

Year One: This would’ve been better if it stayed a ridiculous comedy and didn’t suddenly try to be emotional and serious.

Rocky II: The entire movie felt like a two-hour “re-do” of the previous ending – as if they needed to go back and fix it.

Kung Fu Panda: I was impressed to see such good fight choreography in a cartoon.

Ghost Town: They never explained how the naked guy died.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula: It’s funny watching Keanu Reeves not notice things.

Raging Bull: I’m sure it wasn’t meant as a comedy but these guys are histerical.

Iron Man 2: The best part is Black Widow.

1408: This guy responds to things the way a real person would, which made him a more relatable character.

Pet Sematary: That’s a ridiculously cute kid. Even when he’s not supposed to be cute he’s still ridiculously cute.

The Book of Eli: I think it should’ve ended with The Wanderer by Johnny Cash.

Inception: A lot of potential for interesting and unique action sequences – but the action never quite got to the point of blowing my mind.

The Expendables: That’s an image of Sylvester Stallone that I want to forget very quickly.

MacGruber: Now I’ve got Broken Wings stuck in my head.

The Karate Kid (2010): Jackie Chan beats up a bunch of kids. Fun.

    Correction, the only good part was black widow.

    I’m just saying.
