Movie Mania

I've watched a bunch of movies lately, so I thought I would write a bunch of quick reviews.

Kissing Jessica Stein

Before this movie came out, I was told to go see it by a former co-worker. The reason being thet his sister, Heather Juergensen, was the one of the writers and co-stars. It looked interesting in commercials and since I don't go to the movies all that often, I figured I would just wait until it came out on DVD. This was a really good movie. It was a lot of smart comedy and has a cute premise. Defintely worth seeing. Might even be something I pick up on DVD some time in the future.

Changing Lanes
This movie was nowhere near as good as I had hoped it would be. It had a promising premise, but when it came out, it just didn't come out right. I felt that Sam Jackson did not do a good job of portraying the character he was cast in. It could have been the script as well. In the end, it just didn't come off. He is trying to be a man losing his mind because of the things that Ben Affleck's character was going to him, but in the end he just came off as an angry black man.

Death to Smoochy
This movie was a little wacked. I think I may watch it again this week and pay a little more attention. It had a rather messed up storyline that was more like a storyline on top of a story line. In contrast to Sam Jackson, Robin Williams does an awesome job of potraying a guy going nuts. Some nice little plot twists and stuff in this as well.

Panic Room
This movie was alright. I was not paying all my attention to it, as I was doing stuff here on the computer and stuff, but paid enough attention that I got the jist of it. I think I thought it was going to be more suspenseful, but it just wasn't. Who knows, maybe another viewing this week, but I think its just going to go back to Netflix.

The Scorpion King
This movie was RATHER hyped due to the fact that the WWE's (ne WWF's) star The Rock was the lead in the movie. I heard things like he was the next Arnold and all sorts of stuff. Overall, sure, it was a good action movie, The Rock definitely does a good job of making the fight sequences and whatnot seem real. But, in the end, thats about all it was, nothing spectacular.
