Hey! How about some fun?!

Instead of the usual ol’ borderline-boring SSFOBMRPWNC, let’s mix it up. Literally.

I’m mixing and matching the lines and the movies. See if you can match them up. Here’s a twist. One of the movies has its proper review excerpt intact. See if you can figure out which one it is. Game on! (And no fair link-peeking!)

The Game Plan: When you enter the enemy’s world and live in it, can you avoid becoming like them? — Badmouth

The Kingdom: I was surprised by how funny it was. — strawberry.jude 4ever

The Darjeeling Limited: You will see complex relationships between friends, spouses, lovers, and children. — Just hanging out and creating

Lust, Caution: He doesn’t even have a topographic map of the area. — Living In Cinema

Feast Of Love: There’s no real point or reason for this film’s existence. — Eclipse Magazine

Postal: It’s Almost Monumental. — Almost Monumental

Good Luck Chuck: While the film is being promoted as the last in the series, the closing shot offers the possibility of an infinite number of sequels. —

Resident Evil: Extinction: All three kids really enjoyed it, and my friend even got weepy at one point. — Catch-19: A Prototype

The Jane Austen Book Club: In reality, Americans are just not ready for the truth. — Arab Writers Group Syndicate

Into The Wild: Isn’t this the same movie that features a full-frontal nude scene involving an aging and hefty Dave Foley? — The Children of Marx and Coca-Cola



I know. I’ve been lax in my duties. So here’s a roundup of the current Top 10 (minus two that have been done already), presented in order of weekend take:

The Brave One: “I’ve been prepared to protect my life with terminal force for a very long time.” — Being Green

3:10 To Yuma: “It was basically a rip-off of Lord of the Rings only with a doughy Aussie instead of a stumpy Brit.” — Beer and News

Mr. Woodcock: “Amy Poehler is (usually) hilarious, but her character is unnecessary and says things I would be embarrassed to say even if I was getting paid to say them.” — Joey’s Film Blog

Dragonwars: “Every now and then I’m faced with a choice between going to a classy movie or a not classy movie.” — Filling the Well

Superbad: “Man, though, these kids can cuss.” — The Bad Splice

Halloween: “If I’m sitting on the couch, minding my own business, I think I’d notice a stench when an absolutely unclean killer walked into the room. ” — So … There I Was

Balls of Fury: “The theater was alive with laughter and Ooooo’s and Ooowwwww’s and Whoa!’s it was fantastic.” — Wild Yarn

Mr. Bean’s Holiday: “It’s a genuine molding of art forms, here, and the polarizing reviews are indicative of just what the film intended.” — Canadian Cinephile’s Reviews


Bratz: And I made extra-careful not to make any eye contact with the pre-teen girls in the audience. — BlogDance

El Cantante: The movie also made me think about other singers and actresses we see on the news all the time whose lives seem to be self destructing due to an apparent dependency on narcotics. Perhaps they should see El Cantante so they can see it’s not a good path to be on. — Drama, anime, manga….what would we do without them? (two sentences — so sue me)

Hot Rod With mostly bad tracks from bands like Europe, Hot Rod’s music goes perfect with its attitude. — Moron Life

Rush Hour 3: Lee and Carter make their way to the martial arts studio where they fight with a giant, (Sun Ming Ming), but a gang of armed men had already reached there and taken the contents of the locker. —

Stardust This is the moment that you’ve been waiting for, and I believe it to have been well-pleasing. — The Scroll of Rhodelough


As always,  these snippets are presented as found. Enjoy.

The Bourne Ultimatum: Going all over the world (eg. Moscow, Tangier, America) in his one man army again against the powerhouse of the world (the US of A). — The G-Man Moview Reviews

Hairspray: For one I could not bare to look at John Travolta as a woman, absolutely hideous. —  Flying into action

I Know Who Killed Me: I saw this film on my birthday, although I refuse to accept that as a symbol of my life’s sorry state. — Three cheers for darkened years!

I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry: Overall a pretty bad week(end) at the movies my professional advice is that everyone stay at home and re-watch STAR WARS as all six films are excellent and far better than anything in the theaters right now. — Passacaglia and Blues

No Reservations: The acting was good. — Musings of a Thoughtful Conserviative

Underdog: It’s a sad, sad era for children’s cinema. — Zack Smith: Writer


I know, I know. It’s been a long time since I’ve done this. So before we get back in the routine, let’s sum up this summer’s blockbuster releases. As these are blockbusters we’re talking about, we’ll keep with the spirit of excess by citing two sentences instead of just one. Enjoy!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: Umbrige showed up and it turned into a portal of death! she changed the school with 100 laws (litterally!). — Star Point Mansion

Live Free or Die Hard: What could be better then totally ripped shirtless men in capes killing hordes of men and monsters alike using only their spears and the sheer power of movie slow-motion magic, you ask? A severely bald man and the Mac is what! — Scott’s Digital Blog

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End: At one point Jack is having a discussion with himself, and out of nowhere a “good Jack” and “bad Jack” come out to offer advice to the real Jack Sparrow. Personally, I thought it was pretty gay and didn’t fit in with anything they had done in these movies previously. — I’m Bringing Ugly Back

The Simpsons: Interestingly, Xiaxue and her ang moh boyfriend just so happen to sit in front of us. They look really loving by the way – doesn’t seem like a crappy Sarong Party Girl relationship a lot of people are accusing her of. — Alvinology

Transformers: And really the decision of making them the same as the 1980’s models would have doomed the movie because no one wants to see a couple of blocks of metal put together in a block shape moving and fighting, those shapes were good for the 80’s but we are in the 21st century and the models managed to mature nicely. Jazz and Bumble Bee were the coolest of the bunch but no one can deny that Optimus Prime and Megatron’s battle was by all means “Epic”. —  Diaries


Had a little catching up to do, so I opened up this week’s installment to some larger organizations. Hope you don’t mind.

Civic Duty: I also had the option to interview Peter Krause, but I didn’t think it would be fair to take up his time when I don’t even have a camera to film him. — Cherniak on Politics

Diggers: In fact, I don’t think there’s even a disco hit on the soundtrack. — Scarlett Cinema

The Flying Scotsman: The film contains some rough language, a suicide attempt, implied lovemaking between husband and wife, brief violence and a crass scene of urination. — Catholic Online

Jindabyne: Every australian should see this film on australia day. — somethinklocal

Lucky You: Eric Bana bears an uncanny physical resemblance to Corey Feldman in this role, and the producers really missed out on a golden opportunity by not giving this movie to Corey, since he could have handled bringing the blank character to life just as well and would have done it for peanuts. — Online Poker Insider

Spider-man 3: In conclusion, I think Sam now has in him what it takes to make successful Bollywood movies and Indian TV mega-serials. — My Story – ISB and beyond!!!

Waitress: The cinematographer here does for pastry what Elliot Davis’ cinematography did for Detroit in Out of Sight. — Pajiba

Wind Chill: The ghost cop also has the ability, I think, to turn his victims into frostbite-zombies. — Cinematical


The Condemned: “The only thing worse than a bad movie is a bad message-movie.” — MovieBob

The Invisible: “I think the title, The Invisible, is a great title.” — Media Morgue

Kickin’ it Old Skool: “It seems to be made only for 80’s obsessed, ex break dancing Maria Menounos fans.” — The Moviezzz Blog

Next: “He really can see exactly two minutes into the future.” — A Movie Every Day
