I watched pirates 3 just recently. Pure rubbish. It was a mess of 3 hours.

I saw Scent of a Woman and the Illusionist yesterday. Scent of a Woman was beautiful; Al Pacino is a god. The Illusionist was alright. I love and respect Ed Norton, but I felt he was too subdued, or at least the character was written too much in that way. His British accent also changes his voice to this weak, breathy puff that conflicts with the more mature, gruff-voiced characters. Paul Giamatti was quite impressive, as well as the guy who played the Prince.

Another thing that bothered me about the movie was the treatment of the magic. I felt it was too much towards the supernatural. Without realistic grounding, it can be brushed aside as "magic," and since it wasn't dealt with much detail, it kind of fell flat. I felt the Prestige dealt with magic to a greater effect, making the magic realistic to keep the audience guessing. The wonder actually comes from knowing that it can be done, and the plot twist is even more effective because of it.

I went and saw the new Fantastic Four movie today. I was expecting complete garbage like I was with the first one, but also like the first one, I was pleasantly surprised. I won't really say it was a good movie, but it was solid and fun in spite of the poor writing for Susan Storm (they did some things so perfect with her, and other things so bad!).

But I will concede it might just be the Silver Surfer fanboy in me that allowed me to enjoy the movie.

...Of course, Jessica Alba looking hot helps too...

Pirates 3 - Disappointingly meh

Frankenstein (the 1931 original) - Good, in an unintentionally hilarious way.

Bride of Frankenstein - Better than the above, but not as entertaining.

Deja Vu -  It was a good distraction from studying.  The girl in the film is beautiful.  It's so not fair.  

Da Vinci Code -  Finally saw it and yeah, I realize not being in a hurry to see the film was a good thing.  I never read the book, so I never got into the hype.  It was just okay for me.  Tom Hank's hair was horrible.

Shawshank Redemption - A good friend had said it was his favorite movie so I decided to watch it over the weekend. Excellent movie, I can see why he likes it so much.

Hot Fuzz

Best movie I've seen in a year.

See it if you can.

1408.

The best thriller so far this year. Very tense. Doesn't rely on cheap scares; takes horror-movie cliches and plays with them relentlessly.

Every review I've read says it's good.

I'm glad to hear that, it's one of King's freakier stories.

Saw Transformers tonight.

Meh.

I have to admit I did get a little kid thrill the first time I saw Optimus Prime.....but overall the movie is about on par with Spiderman 3.

6/10

Pirates of the Caribbean 2 followed by 3.

 I thought 2 was decent. Then I saw 3 and it said to me 'No, 2 sucked. This is how it's done'. Or at least '2 sucked until the last 15 minutes'(Which was a cliffhanger I'd have hated if I saw it when the movie came out. But it was awesome when you only have to wait a day instead of a year for the rest). 3 was great, I'd say on par or better then the first one.

Saw Ratatouille today since it was my brother's birthday. It's a pretty good film, as you'd expect from Pixar.

Ratatouille for me as well.

I really enjoyed it, as I expected I would. I wasn't blown away by the comedy presented (though there were definately some good laughs), but the concept behind the movie, and the execution of everything from the artwork to the music was beautifully done. It's easily one of the best looking films Pixar has put out.

The quickie-film before the movie began was entertaining, too.

Transformers was great!

I was surprised how much I liked it. Very Michael Bay-ish, but definitely one of if not his best. I loved the humor in it, very well done.

Only one thing bugged me:
