Movie Reviews

June 27, 2007
Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 4:14 pm

So we’ve been told my numerous friends with kids to go to the movies, because we won’t EVER GET TO GO AGAIN.  OK, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it’ll be awhile before we see anything not made by Disney or Pixar.

Here are the reviews:

Pirates of the
Caribbean 3 – Lots of good swashbuckling action and better than the 2nd installment.  Great for summer watching.

Spiderman 3 – More torment for Peter Parker and Spiderman. The Sandman was really cool to watch (amazing what $100 million of special effects can do) and the other villains are fine.

Fantastic 4 -  Also a good summer movie.  The Silver Surfer is very, very cool.  Jessica Alba is weirdly tan and has strange and brassy blonde hair.  But otherwise, it was nifty.

Addendum: I forgot about Ocean’s 13!  Entertaining and better than Ocean’s 12.  Nice twists.

I’d like to see Transformers and Harry Potter, but hopefully I’ll just have a baby soon instead….

On DVD:

Borat – Funny, but not as good as I was expecting.  My favorite scene was in the ‘deleted scenes’ list, where Borat is at the grocery store looking at cheese.

Pan’s Labyrinth – Quite possibly the worst movie I’ve seen in a year.  Violent and gory, and many of the main characters die.  More about fascist
Spain (hello, uplifting) than fantasy. 

The Prestige -  Good movie about dueling magicians. It’s Batman vs. Wolverine, I mean Christian Bale vs. Hugh Jackman.  Lots of good twists and turns and kept me guessing. 

Off to eat more spicy food and take a walk…..

  1. totally disagree about pan’s labyrinth. i really loved it, one of the best movies of last year. i found the story totally compelling and with just the right mix of fantasy.
