Wow, this movie was better then I expected. First lets get the bad out of the way. The story was a little confusing and cheesy in some parts. Although Cloud is the main character of the story, they seemed to over use him in almost every fight that took place. I would have rather seen some more of the other great characters do some of the action, but this is all very minor. This is an action movie by far. It has tons of original fight scenes and the visuals are pure eye candy. The Japanese voice actors did a great job and the music was used in all the right places. They kept a lot of the original tunes form the game to satisfy all the fan boys like myself. This movie is not necessarily late but it should have been out four years ago instead of that other piece of chud we got. Now all Square has to do is make a movie of all the other Final Fantasy games as well as they made this one and I can die a happy man. If you liked the videogame and don’t see this movie then you suck. I give this one 4.5 out of 5.
I maybe going out on a limb here, but my vote goes to the 1985 film “SHE” as the worst movie ever made. This was hard to say because I’ve seen so many horrible, awful, and just… “huh?” movies in my life time. But the one thing about “SHE” that put it at the top of my list is that no one should see this film. Most other terribly bad movies are worth a watch for comical reasons or to see why it is so bad, but not “SHE.” I felt sick while watching it and it put me in a bad mood the rest of the day. It is a little over a hour and a half but it seems like over three hours easy. I have only seen it once and that is enough for me. If you want a plot summery it goes like this: “In a backward post-apocalyptic world, She aids two brothers’ quest to rescue their kidnapped sister. Along the way, they battle orgiastic werewolves, a psychic communist, a tutu-wearing giant, a mad scientist, and gladiators before standing against the odds to defeat the evil Norks.” Wow, that may not seem so bad right?…WRONG! I left out the part where the clones of Popeye come out for a musical number. Or when the vampires try to turn the lead singer for “Dexie’s Midnight Runners” into one of them. One good thing I will say about the movie is the box art. When you see the art just make up a story and you will have a hundred times better experience then watching it. For fear that the video might be cursed, I made my brother watch it. (So the little “Ring” girl wouldn’t kill me in seven days). Think “The Road Warrior” if you were drunk, high, tripping bad acid, and had malaria. That is what “SHE” is all about. Avoid it at all coast.
Three aspiring dancers take their best shot-and pop and lock- at the big time in this invigorating phenomenon. Shabba-Doo and Boogaloo Shrimp pump up the jam as struggling dancers taking on a rival street gang in a professional dance competition. Packed with fast-paced moves and furious jives and featuring smash hits "Breakin’…There’s No Stopping Us" and "Freakshow on the Dance Floor," this heart-in-your-throat dance movies is a nonstop floor show of "excitingly staged..solid fun" (San Francisco Chronicle)!
Wow what a review. If I could only have such a possitive outlook on everything…You must watch the trailer here.
Was it worth the wait? Yes. This movie defiantly has a much darker tone then its predecessors. The start is a little slow with mild humor, but it then takes a 180. From light saber battles to double crossing, this movie delivers. I wish they had more substance in the space fighting scene. Although the script is in the same Lucas flare, the acting is a step up from the other two movies. Some of the random voices were a little annoying but nothing major. Watching Mace Windu in action was one of the highlights. Also Yoda is back with all new cool moves. If you are a Star Wars fan you should not be disappointed, unless you hate the world and all that’s on it. But if your not a Star Wars fan, there is still good action to enjoy. Some of the scenes seemed rushed and the important scenes were too short. I could tell that Lucas cut quite a bit from this one. Over all, it brought an instant smile to my face to see Darth Vader in full suit. It will do the same to you if you grew up with the classic movies.4.5
Very smart Mr. Lucas. For over a year now you’ve been promoting Darth Vader’s role in Revenge of the Sith. But some people don’t realize that Vader’s time on screen, in costume, will only be about two minutes at the most. Making it less than Darth Maul’s time in Episode 1! So when Anakin turns to the Darkside he is known as Lord Vader strait out the box. You just might as well cut out Vader all together and replace him with the red-headed brat from The Phantom Menace, who just wants to play some ball. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.
