Toy Story 3 - This movie is freaking awesome that I was crying at the end. I tried to hold it in, but my throat got all dry, so I had to pull out the tissues. Woody was classic Woody and Buzz went beyound infinity. I think it was a sensible, beautiful, and touching, end to the story. I'm going to have to give this movie the best grade I can: A+.
The Karate Kid - First, this is the wrong title for the movie. It should be The Kung Fu Kid. Second, it can't be compared to the first movie. This is a completely different movie. Third, GO SEE IT!!! This is an inspirational and uplifting movie that shows you Kung Fu at its purest. My favourite Jackie Chan movie is Spiritual Kung Fu ( I have a lot of early work before he went Hollywood) and seeing this movie took me back to classic Jackie. Now, if you need to compare this version to the first, this current version makes more sense. In the first, it's all pretty coincidental that the handyman for the complex Daniel moves to is a karate expert. In this one, given they moved to China, the kung fu handyman is more believable. Both movies have a tragic past for the handyman, but I found the original tragedy better than the current on, if you want to compare tragedy. I could go on and on as to why this movie is great movie, but the best I can do is tell you my grade: it's A.
Jonah Hex - Your life might actually be worse after seeing this movie. Please, for the love of [insert your deity] don't waste your time. I would consider it a favour, as I have already endured this torture, if you wouldn't go see this movie. If you do, it'll be seen as a success and another will be made. This is a F-.
Bobbette, wonderful reviews as usual. The only one I saw of these three is the Karate Kid and I agree with you on it but I probably would have given it an A+. I personally thought it was much better than the original even though basically it had the same story except for the fact that it took place in China.
But every thing about this one was so much better including the fact that Jaden was so much more believable than Ralph as a budding martial artist. The China scenery was awesome. My niece and nephew wanted to immediately see it again but of course neither one of them saw the original.
I dont think there is any remake except Jane Ayre with George C Scott instead of Orson Wells that has ever came close to my liking better than the first as this one did. I usually dont like remakes at all but this one was done in such a way that even though you knew the plot and what was ultimately going to happen it was just simply better.
I see Script Girl is back in business. A tear comes to my eye just thinking about Ralph M. Last gig was on Entourge. Haven't seen K.K. #12 yet, but I'm truly moved about Janet's whole George C. Scott V. Orson comparison. I'm getting the sinking feeling that I'm way, way to shallow to be a Moviebyter. Gotta go, "Something About Mary" and "Superbad" beckons. Keep writing!
I get why you'd give it an A+. However, I find Pat Morita's performance about the death of his family a lot better than Jackie's. I also found the circumstances surrounding Mr. Myagi's family death more tragic.
Toy Story 3 hasn;t reached the UK yet :( Pixar's films always seem to come out significantly earlier in the states (UP was released in May there and October here!) Really looking forward to seeing it though.
Sorry it's taking longer for Toy Story 3 to open in the UK. I hope it won't be too big a gap in time!!!
Four weeks Bobette!
