Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy () — Crispy, a bit dry, but still good.

Supersize Me () — ... As far as preaching to the choir goes.

The Forgotten () — It was good all the way up until the Alfre Woodard thing happened. Then it started getting really lame.

Big Fish () — It was messy and made no sense, like a door-to-door used crazy stick salesman.

Fever Pitch () — That was some of the worst acting I've seen from Drew Barrymore, ever. I love Jimmy Fallon's singing; I like Jimmy Fallon's goofing off; I like Jimmy Fallon's funny stuff. I hate Jimmy Fallon's acting.

Dodgeball () — Ha. Ha. Okay. Next.

The Beach () — That su-- ... Fine, lemme finish watching first. *watchingwatching* ... --cked.

The Village () — Hmmm, I'm in the minority, but I quite liked this one. I actually liked it better than Sixth Sense. It was just the right place to end it. You think it's kinda neat, but it's actually creepy and disturbing in a human psychological kind of way.

M. Night Shyamalan is a magician. He's not a large scale illusionist like David Copperfield or Sigfried & Roy. He's a sleight of hand magician. He does very simple-looking card tricks on a plain wooden end table with a short sleeved shirt on. When he does it well, you're still very very amazed.

I liked The Village too! I think a lot of people don't like it because the marketing for the movie lured people to the cinema with the wrong expectations.

Yeah. Although, I have to admit, now that it's kinda sunk in a little, it _is_ more disturbing than neat or cool =}

Oh, see, I really liked Big Fish. The book that it's based on, now, that's messy.

(Also, the Chinese translation of the title is 大智若鱼, and it always pleases me to see a clever translation for a change.)

I liked The Village too. And I was also a fan of Big Fish :) I can't help it. I just really liked that movie.

I also liked The Village. I thought that The Sixth Sense was better (creepier, more suspenseful, had a better twist), but The Village left me wanting more. I wanted it to be true so that I could find out more about the back story.

The more I think about the back story, the creepier and more disturbing it actually is.

I liked Hitchiker's Guide - but then again I was looking forward to it for SO long. I don't think it lived up to the book though.
On that vein I liked Big Fish because I'd read the book and I thought he brought a lot of the imagery to life.
Dodgeball - just funny. Nothing more than what I expected. :)
I adored the Village - I don't care what people said. I didn't see the ending coming at all. :)

I didn't see it coming either. I was hoping very hard it didn't have something to do with their inability to use contractions though =D

LOL.
I knew there would be a twist, just because of whose movie it was - but I was so into the story I forgot.
It reminded me of when I was in high school and went to see From Dusk till Dawn. I knew it was a vampire movie, but I got so into the story that when they started appearing it suprised me. :)

Big Fish
Call me odd, but I absolutely LOVED Big Fish. So much for the manly man image.

You did _not_ like Dodgeball?!? I am horrified. I guess it is _kind of_ a guy movie... =)
