One of my non resolutions this year is to start reviewing movies again. I really slacked in 2007 not just on movie reviewing but also watching. We have recently found a place where movies are only 4 bucks for matinée and 6 dollars even on weekends for new movies. So here is a list that I took from the wikipedia and gave myself the title of reviewer or the number one box office hits of 2007. Somebody better buy a freaking DVD from Amazon after all the link building I did.
Did not see it, have not even rented it. Nobody really recommended it either, I know it has Ben Stiller and Robin Williams who I enjoy, but meh!
I waited for rental and was surprised to learn that it stayed at number one for two weeks even though it only made about 33 million on those two. The movie had the 80s Feel good attitude, but it was not even worth the rental. Unless you are into the whole stomping thing, I say pass.
I am surprised I missed this movie since most of the time I actually go see them at the theater. This one did not even make the rental list, and again, I heard nobody talking abou thow good it was so I skipped it.
My wife has an adversion to Scary movies, and I am not a total fan since they have become so formulaic. The latest of what I think is the copy cat era from the asian horror films passed me by.
Eddie Murphis has been sucking for quite some time. Even though the low point was probably Pluto Nash, I see no point on watching him once again make fun of fat people. Not that I take it personally, but come on, isn’t there a better subject matter? I did not even rent this one.
I did not realize how many movies I had actually missed this year. This one I can actually blame my friends for not seeing. I heard nothing but how bad this movie was and I saved the money. I have considered renting it.
I actually convinced my wife to go see it with me and we both enjoyed it quite a bit. I loved the end of the movie but I am not going to ruin it just in case you go ahead and rent it.
Miller’s masterpiece was treated very fairly by the silver screen. While it was a little on the homo side with more pecks than you can shake a stick at, Leonidas kicks ass. The action was good but the visuals were truly stunning. If you did not catch this movie I seriously recommend you buy it.
Why I have not seen this movie already is beyond me. Netflix add to queue.
I went in with low expectations for this movie but found it hilarious. It is a great comedy and the story is a little bit different. They should team up again for more movies for sure. I would not quite call it a most buy, but it is worth a rental.
Wow, that is a long time to be a number one for any movie. This one was a rental for me, and I was glad to see it. The story is good and it showed that Shia LaBeouf was a good actor. I think this was his breakout year and hopefully he will do a good job with Indiana Jones. The movie is worth watching because the suspense is pretty good and not as predictable as you might think. Rent it.
Even though I some of my money went to the $151,116,516 that beat the weekend record that Pirates had before, I wanted my money back. I wrote about how much I despised this movie.
The first movie of the year to actually leave me smiling after I walked out of the theater. Well worth the price at the theater the first most buy of the year. It kept the charm of the first two while doing the humor a little different. The new characters did not seem out of place and I laughed pretty hard. Shrek the Third broke Shrek 2’s record for the highest weekend debut for an animated film, and is 3rd in all-time weekend debuts.
I’ve had enough of the metrosexual pirate, so I skipped this one all together.
Why haven’t I seen this one yet…
Not as good as the first one, but remember the first one was not that good to begin with. Even though the Silver Surfer was very powerful, he was kind of one dimensional. I did not like it enough to even recommend a rental, it will eventually make it to TV, just wait.
To much bad CGI for me… I love animals because they are not humans, once you start making them talk or behave like humans, they need to be fully animated or they lose their charm. Sorry to all of the fans of talking horses but I pass.
So far the best two movies of the year have been animated… what does that say about actors? This movie had everything right, from the animation to the voices. This one is a most buy also.
I almost dislike that Harry Potter took the number one spot from this one. I was happy to see that even thought they changed a lot, the scense of the transformers stayed intact. Sure, at times it feels like an Army recruitment video, but it is still the best movie of the summer. This one is another most buy, and again, even though there were some actors here, the stars were also CGI.
First all actor movie that I enjoyed! Even though I kind of feel that it is due to me loving the books more than to movie superiority. It is hard to see the movie without thinking of the book, but overall they did a great job. I say rent it unless you are an HP fan and you probably already have the DVD.
We need to add it to netflix.
The Simpsons have not been this funny since the mid 90s. Go buy this right now if you have not seen it already!
It could potentially be the best movie of the series. The action is just as cool as Transformers but without CGI robots.
Needs to be also added to the queue.
Halloween (1 Week)
Not really interested, never watched the original and I have already seen what Zombie does to movies. Pass.
Added to the queue.
Maybe added to the queue. Jodie Foster pissed off looks like a good premise, but then again they had a sister movie called… I don’t know, I hate when Hollywood does the, Volcano movies, Asteroid movies… we’ll see.
Might borrow from a friend some day.
The Rock is funny, I still want to watch it. Add to queue.
Might add to the queue.
Not interested. Amazon does not even have an image for it… how relevant.
Denzel is a good actor, will have to add to queue.
Sienfeld can annoy me at times… I might make it a rental.
Fully CGI, Full of potential suck. Pass.
Surprisingly great movie. I am not into the whole musical in the middle of the movie thing, but they did it well. Rent it, kids will enjoy it.
They managed to not annoy me with talking animals. Great story, executed flawlesly. Rent it for sure.
Biggest December opening ever. Best opening weekend for Will Smith. He carried a whole movie on his own and I am proud. This movie is still in theaters, go watch it!
At least the year ended in a good note for movies because it was pretty shaky. This movie was pretty good family fun. Go take your kids and have some fun.
