Video games and movies are a big part of my life. Movies stir the emotions in so many ways. You can feel romance, nostalgia or you just be flat out going huh? Those are the things that review what I saw this week in terms of movies. Three great movies that I think are worth checking out and you probably already have at some point. Past the point of no return...
First goes the movie that just grabbed me by the nuts and then let go of them real fast. Ok that was weird, in normal, that means it was a rush through the whole thing but just ended kinda abruptly. Risky Business is a movie that stars Tom Cruise in his quest to say "what the fuck" more often. The main guy here is a highschool student called Joel (Tom Cruise) who doesn't really take many chances in life. But all that changes when his parents go away in the longest weekend I have ever seen. Without saying more about the plot, the reason why this movie I think is so good, is that it's one of those movies that has the main character get in some real deap trouble. You just think, man, this guy is not gonna get outta this one and that makes for some real tense moments. I got this one in a Tom Cruise triple pack that came with Interview with a Vampire and The Last Samurai. Those movies are so good also I love them. But Risky Business was the only one that I had not seen yet so I said: "what the fuck". So when I got to the part when he lip syncs to the song Old Time Rock n Roll I was like: "Oh thats where this is from". I really had no idea, I had seen all the parodies and just thought it was funny. This movie is just so cool really, it just never stops with the weird moments and it's just crazy. I guess I give it 5/5.
Phantom of the Opera
Once again, another popular thing I was totaly unaware of. I mean yeah I know what the Phantom of the Opera is and all but, had I ever seen the musical? No. What about the other billion movie adaptations? Well...no. I gotta thank my sister for this one. We both love musical movies and musicals in general. So one day shes like: "Check this out, it's here, the phantom of the opera". All I can say is wow, this one is a real masterpiece. I had been missing something real special. The music is just AAA, creme de la creme man. The whole soundtrack is just one glorious song after another. The only bad thing I can think about the movie is the pace sometimes, it's kinda slow and has some moments that I think we could have done without. I had the chance to buy this one after I had rented it but thank god I didn't because I saw it later on Blu-Ray, lucky me. So of course I saw it again. Mmmm...genious. Another one for the ages. The funny thing is that it's directed by Joel Schumacher. No bat nipples here thank god. 5/5 baby.
Last one. I had not seen this movie in years. My dad gave me this movie on a homemade VHS and I would watch it all the freakin time. So I kinda went through a "Pinocchio-ain't-as-good-as-all-the-newer-disney-movies-after-little-mermaid" phase. Maybe I was right but you know, this movie just took me way back. To the days when I had my good ol NES. When we used to tape all our favorite shows and movies on a 6 hour long VHS. That really warmed my heart. Aside from all that, something I thought was interesting is how the fairy in the movie sends a note to Pinocchio. The thing is that she sends it using a dove. A heavenly bright looking one. So wouldn't this clash with the whole theory of some christian pastors that claim Disney is the devil? I'm christian so I notice these things right away. Anyway forget all that other stuff, because the movie is great. There isn't that much I can say about this one. We all know it freakin rules, the music, the story, and just about everything. Also the movie tends to get kinda dark sometimes. The tone just does to freakin hell when the kids are all turned into donkeys. It's like a soft version of a bunch of brats getting sent to hell. Still it all for the sake of teaching kids right from wrong, and it does this really well. When Pinocchio is all getting wasted at the amusement park, you can see that he is in no way, having fun. I don't get though why the heck would they put this PSA kinda thing before the movie starts about smoking and what it does to you. Isn't getting turned into a damned jackass enough to get you to stay away from that stuff? It sure did work for me. 6/5.
Well thats it I guess. I next I'll do a top something good games I have.
