A Bug's Life

The waterboy

(reviewed by Myron, not me yet)

Sounds pretty funny!

Meet Joe Black

(out of 5)

Although this movie was bombed by most articles I read, I went in expecting a bore-fest... but it turned out to be a charming and sometimes even funny film! It could have been a little shorter though. It lasts for about three hours. The movie is about Death personified by who else, but Brad Pitt, reason enough for most of the adult women population to see this film.He appears at the end of the life of a rich chairman named William Parrish, who owns a big communications corporation. Death makes a deal with Parrish (Hopkins) to give him a little time to tie up his loose ends in return for a lesson on living. Meet Joe Black is a remake of 1934's Death takes a Holiday. The movie starts out with a bang but the story dies right near the end. Anthony Hopkins' performance is probably the only redeeming quality of this movie, though.

Brad Pitt, says Time magazine's Richard Schickel," has a real gift for standing around looking cute and stupid," that is entertaining up to a point and it has been done before.

Pleasantville

This movie is worth checking out! Once you can ignore the fact that this movie is pure fantasy, not even close to sci-fi, you can enjoy it more.

Something About Mary

(out of 5)

This has got to be one of the funniest movies I've ever seen! Lot's of toilet humor, raunchy stuff really!!! So don't take kids or Mom either !!! Go with someone you like to laugh with !!

The Truman Show

Great movie! Jim Carrey's best yet!

The lack of originality in the story is forgiven once you see Jackie in action!!! Chris Tucker is pretty funny in this one too!

The Mask of Zorro

Mulan

As good as Usual Suspects!

Wow, this should have done better than it did when it was released. A very good sci-fi movie, done by the guy that directed The Crow.
