The House Bunny

A cute film, Faris who plays an aging Playboy Bunny is tricked out of leaving the mansion and is forced into finding new employment at a Sorority. Faris does a great job at playing the dumb blonde, but she manages to help her motley crew of sorority girls at Zeta who can’t manage to get any new pledges. Colin Hanks, Emma Stone, Kat Dennings and Katherine McPhee were all very great in this movie. Just don’t expect it to be up for any Oscars any time soon. Still a fun quick flick.

70/100

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

The first Harry Potter movie to really get me excited, the direction in this movie was much more dark than the previous two titles. Even just the colors used in the film were rich and dark and gave that feeling of foreboding. I loved the dementors in this movie and how a killer had escaped the wizards prison of Azkaban. Less time was spent on school and more on the action of the film. Harry (Radcliffe) also had a darker attitude in this movie. I also loved Lucius (Isaacs), great actor.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

The second film in the series has some flashier scenes but has a lot of long drawn out parts too. Personally I thought the Sorcerer’s Stone was a slightly better movie. House elves are a little annoying to me so that alone lost a few points for this movie. I did enjoy the Quiddich match in this movie it was quite exciting and the climax of the film in the Chamber of Secrets was also very awesome. I just wish this movie wasn’t so long, a good 30 minutes could have been cut from it easily.

The Blind Side

I am not one to fall in love with sports movies but this movie is a real gem. The Blind Side shows how compassion can really lead to wonderful things in people’s lives. Sandra Bullock did a fantastic job in this film playing the very southern mother. For those of you thinking she didn’t deserve an Oscar for this role, probably didn’t watch this movie. I thought she was absolutely perfect. Quinton Aaron was also great as the lovable giant football player Mike. This is just a really cute film.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

The first movie in the series had to get some things out of the way. There is a lot of exposition in this movie just to get people who haven’t read the books familiar with the characters. All the cast is so young and I feel they did a tremendous job pulling off a film like this at their age. Alan Rickman was my favorite actor in this movie playing Snape. His distaste for Harry (Radcliffe) shows and he just has great facial expressions. Can’t wait to re-watch and review the rest of the series.

Industrial Symphony No. 1: The Dream of the Broken Hearted

I would hardly call this a movie. I would describe this as a 50 minute long music video. The cast of Wild at Heart starts off this video. Cage is breaking up with Dern. They are aptly named Heart breaker and Heart broken Woman. The rest of the movie is just this lady hanging from the fly system of a stage singing songs. There are a lot of weird industrial sounds (hence the name I guess) and a dwarf and a ten foot tall skinned deer. (Don’t ask), this is not my favorite Lynch film. So weird.

55/100

Wild at Heart

Sailor (Cage) is convicted of manslaughter and when released grabs his old girlfriend Lula (Dern) and hits the road to escape her wicked witch of the west mother played by Diane Ladd. Filled with violence and other questionable matters and a lot of references to the Wizard of Oz, these two experience life and death on the yellow brick road. Willam Dafoe wins the worst teeth prize and is also my favorite character. Lynch once again fills the screen with wild characters that will make you laugh.

87/100
