Children of Men was one of my favorite movies. I also had to watch it twice. The second time so much more made sense, and it was even better.

I completely agree. It's a very complex movie, and there is a LOT of stuff going on in the background that serves to enrich it even more completely.

Just an amazing film, and I actually cannot wait to see it again.

If I ran the Oscars, it'd snag Best Actor, Best Director, and Best Picture for sure, not to mention some technical awards.

Glad you liked Fast Times at Ridgemont High! :-D

THAT WAS MY SKULL...I'M SO WASTED!

Spicoli rocks.

Yo!

Glad you loved Little Children - same rating, as well. Ronnie has gotta be one of the saddest characters ever. I don't even care about his history, I just felt bad for the guy...especially at the end, damn.

But no love for The Football Factory? Aww...

I totally agree with you about Ronnie. So sad.

But The Football Factory...urgh. I have a history of hating movies like that.

Transformers, F? wow that is very different to majority of opinons gathered so far

Yeah, I'm amazed it's getting even halfway decent reviews. There is absolutely nothing to enjoy about it whatsoever. It's a long, noisy toy commercial by master of ineptitude Michael Bay.

It's the worst movie he's ever done. And that's saying something.

In Kevin Smith’s 2006 masterpiece “Clerks II,” the character of Elias is obsessed with three things: Jesus, “The Lord of the Rings,” and the Transformers. Well, I can definitely get behind the first one. The second, well, I haven’t seen any of those ‘Rings’ movies yet, so I can’t comment. But the Transformers...that is indefensible. If the original cartoons were even nearly as awful as this epically bad (pun very much intended) action “extravaganza”...Elias deserves to be shot. But he won’t be, because he’s a Kevin Smith character, which means he is immortal. Now, despite Michael Bay’s sordid reputation, I’d never seen a film I totally disliked from him until “Transformers.” “Armageddon” is lots of fun. “The Island” was very good for the first half...and then, yeah, it became what Bay’s best (or should I say “worst,” in this case) known for. Still, not entirely awful. But “Transformers” is a pure cinematic abortion. A big, loud mess of robots and humans and advertisements and the “Even Stevens” kid, all packed into 140 minutes of pure and unadulerated torture. And I haven’t even gotten started on it. I’ll be the first to admit that the trailers for the film had me somewhat interested. Of course it had potential to be...well, what it is, but it also coulda been a lot of fun – in the right hands. Alas, Michael Bay’s (heretofore known as simply “Mikey” because he’s lost the right to a last name) inept direction flushed any bit of potential this film had right down the toilet. This year, “300” gave us some of the best and most exhilirating action sequences in quite a long time, wheras the action in “Transformers” offers little more than a few mild distractions connected by long periods of boredom and wondering which robot is which (only by the final twenty minutes did I realize that the big blue and red dude was Optimus Prime). All the performances in “Transformers” seem to be aimed at one thing and one thing only. Yes, my friends, that one thing is the RAZZIE AWARDS because everyone is just atrocious. It’s pretty bad when I can say Shia LaBeouf, who I’ve never been a big fan of, gives the strongest performance here. And this is a movie with Jon Voight and John Turturro! Remember “Deliverance”? Remember “Barton Fink” and “O Brother, Where Art Thou”? Forget ‘em. Voight’s stiff as ever as the...I can’t believe I’m even saying this...American Secretary of Defense, and Turturro plays a federal agent in a way that it seems like he’s just cleaned out Tony Montana and snorted it ALL. Turturro’s a great actor, yes, but his career practically died when that Autobot pissed all over his head. Bernie Mac and Anthony Anderson, both of whom I’ve liked in other things (i.e. non-silly-comedies and non-atrocities – “Ocean’s Eleven,” “The Departed”), are pathetic excuses for comic relief. Anderson, who plays a “master hacker” of sorts, should’ve taken a cue from my man Kevin Smith in “Live Free or Die Hard” and play it at least semi-seriously rather than acting like a retard on acid who might’ve eaten one too many tacos while he was south of the border fishing for drugs. And as for LaBeouf’s obligatory love interest...I can’t even remember that chick’s name. On the hole (and I do mean “hole,” not “whole” because this film brings back fond memories of going to the bathroom during sickness), “Transformers” is a bad movie. A wretched, awful, overlong, under-directed, terribly-acted flaming slice of crap. But, hey, at least it’s not as bad as “Premonition.”

Wait.. so you didn't like it?

Somehow, I'm getting the feeling that he didn't. ;-)

just to let you know your "films ranked" series has become my one stop shop for all movies lol if i watch a movie, i check your list to see what you thought, great rankings.

The Darjeeling Limited A+, man, a wes anderson film always sparks my interest, should be awesome

Thanks, man! I really appreciate that. :-D

And, yep, The Darjeeling Limited is simply fantastic. It's gotten a lukewarm reaction from the critics, but I've loved all of Anderson's movies, and this is one of his best.

(I keep waiting for someone to call me out for giving too many A+'s. :-P)

yeah as you say thats what made we wonder as it has been getting a lukewarm reception. i'm deff hyped up for it, did you get to see the short movie that i've heard is played before the main feature?

lol yes i'm worried about getting acused of handing out those A+'s too, lol 10 A+'s this month so far! but i am kind of just watching my all time faves this month mainly.

Yeah, I've given about four brand new A+'s this month.

As for the short film that precedes Darjeeling, Hotel Chevalier, I initially saw it last month, as it's available for free on iTunes. But the theater also did show it before the flick with a title card saying "Part 1 (Short film to be played before feature.)" and then the actual movie was introduced as "Part 2." I found that interesting.

The Darjeeling Limited was surprisingly great, probably deserving of a *** 1/2 rating. The short film before the main feature, Hotel Chevalier, was even better (****)!

Shalom, y'all!

I agree, Hotel Chevalier was even better. It rocked.

It was that rare short that had me itching to watch it again immediately after the ending credits rolled...

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

It's available for free on iTunes, which is where I saw it a couple weeks before the movie opened.

Film Geek was never released in Belgium on DVD nor has it ever played in the cinemas, one that I have always longed to see. I love films about film buffs like "Cinemania" and "Fade To Black" and I see you only gave Film Geek a "B". From the trailer I saw and various segments on "Youtube" I am sure I would give it top score. The above films I could re-watch forever and never tire of, and I think "Film Geek" would also be one of them. Pity I missed "Knocked Up" in the cinemas here but I guess it will come out on DVD next year. I see you watched it three times (twice in a row) and gave it full marks. I agree with most of your scores from the films that I have seen and I am sure this must be brilliant.

A B in my book is a good grade, so I'd definitely recommend Film Geek. It's quite funny, if not a masterpiece.

Knocked Up is indeed hilarious, though I didn't quite give it full marks. That'd be an A+, but an A is right up there. And I've actually seen it four times. ;-)

To appear like less of a nerd, when I watched it twice in a row, the second time was with Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen, and Bill Hader's commentary. Er...I don't think that worked. :-)
