Quick Movie Review, Now on DVD

I have been pretty busy lately (aka Lazy) so I have not reviewed many movies. Here is a list of what I have seen recently that is available to rent or buy. Happy movie watching.

Akeelah and the Bee.(****)
Excellent acting by the kids. Great messages that we should all learn about confidence, I recommend you watch this one with your family.

Inside Man.(****)
As soon as you think you have it figured out, this movie will surprise you. Each character is very well developped and the suspense is like a nice cheesecake, good until the last bite.

Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector.(***)
I did not expect much from this movie, and I am not a huge Larry fan. I actually watched it because I thought he did a good job voicing one of the characters in cars. I was pleasently surprised by an actual funny movie… not a classic but a good way to kill an couple of hours.

Predictable, and horribly paced… the special effects could not help the bad acting here.

Ok family movie, don’t expect to laugh all that much. Without Williams this movie would have been unwatchable.

Scary Movie 4.(***)
I think the best in the series so far. It was fast paced and full of laughs.

The Shaggy Dog. (*)
Smelled like wet dog… it was pretty bad. It has some interesting half animals that are somewhat entertaining but other than that stay away.

Lucky Number Slevin.(****)
Does an excellent job at revealing just enough to keep you thinking you know what’s going on. Must watch.

  1. “The Inside Man” and “Lucky Number Slevin” were both good enough to pique one’s interest till the very end. Just when you think you got it all figured, a twist just springs up. Excellent!

  2. The original Shaggy D.A. was the first movie I saw in theaters as a three-year old child…but this remake was beyond purile. I mean OK it’s cool that we can do the mighty morphin’ puppy thing but was it really worth re-making the movie just for that? I don’t think so..

    As for Inside Man, it was interesting but not nearly as great as everyone else thinks it is…..

  3. Oh yeah, Lucky No. Sleven, Kris and I saw that one at the dollar theatres a while back. Great flick. Thanks for the reviews… and a lot of them!

  4. I agree with you on Akeelah and Inside Man — both were great. I have Lucky Number Slevin in my queue, so I’m glad to hear it’s worthwhile.
