Where's Bruce Almighty?



Sometimes I ask myself why I watch WWE after all the crap it's given me. HLA, necro, HHH, and so on. And then it hits me. That one simple phrase that can be modified and used for anything that gets you down, yet makes you keep coming back.

Every episode has the potential to be the best one ever, and I'll be damned if I'm going to miss it after sitting through this shit.

Hollywood Homicide was perfectly good for what it was.

A *good* popcorn flick. Movies like Charlie's Angels, and Tomb Raider don't even get that.

Daredevil was one of the worst movies I have ever seen (sans Jennifer Garner in the tight clothes and Colin Farrell (who kicked total ass))...Ben Affleck is not a tough guy nor a bad ass and that fight scene b/w him and Garner was one of the saddest things I have ever seen

Malibu was funny for what it was (it was supposed to be a stupid movie) Cmon you didnt find it hilarious listening to him "bust out his dope rhymes"....its even funnier b/c when you are at a mall you always see kids like that

Wheres X2? Daredevil was OK, but I wouldnt call it the best of the year. I also wasn't a huge fan of Matrix Reloaded. I did enjoy League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, though I have heard that a lot of people dont agree with me.

"Life of David Gale" was definately the worst movie of the year for me, with its unreal ending.But I'll forgive Kevin Spacey for the time being.Most enjoyable movie of the year for me was "Cabin Fever".It was a clever horror movie that didn't take itself too seriously.However, I do regret not seeing "28 Days Later" on the big screen for it only showed one week here in Toledo.Any idea when it comes out on DVD?and will it have the alternate endings?

I couldn't stand Daredevil as well. I kept looking at my watch on many occasions seeing how much time is left. Garner and Farell were good but Affleck was just so bad. I just can't get behind this guy or look at him as someone I'd want to cheer... The little psudo fight thingy he and Garner did in the school yard when they first met was so lame and after that I didn't care for either.

Surprised no mention of Freddie vs. Jason.

For me the remake of Willard was a movie I enjoyed so much so that I even kinda creeps myself out thinking why I had so much fun during it LoL.

Edit in: For a hidden gem watch David Cronenberg's "Spider". You are going to have to stick with it for a while but I think after it's done you will be happy you did

The Italian Job? Dear no, that was one of the worst films I have seen in a while. While it may not be Gigli bad, Wahlberg's completely wooden acting and Norton sleepwalking through his part doesn't warrant a place on any best of list.

Have to disagree with T3 as well. Admittedly I went in expecting a car wreck, but I still came out with a bent bumper and a broken wing mirror.

To add to the list, Whale Rider was an excellent movie. On another note, LXG was terrible for me. Worst movie of the year for me, of course I wasn't stupid enough to watch Gigli or From Justin to Kelly.

Dumb & Dumberer is definitely my "What the hell was I thinking?" movie of the year thus far. Eugene Levy must've really needed the money.

My top five of 2003, so far. (I'm sure Kill Bill will fill a spot on this list by this weekend, mind you)

5. X2
4. Old School
3. Finding Nemo
2. The School of RAWK~!
1. Pirates of the Carribean

The worst movie I've seen this year was either Hulk or Matrix Reloaded, depending on my mood at the time. You could've taken the actual good parts of these films and made one Super-Movie full of tank-smashing, freeway-chasing goodness, free of any angst, or Zen, or raves, or Nick Nolte. And you be out of the theater in about half an hour.

(Okay, Nolte was pretty cool, but still...)

I just saw the year's best movie.........Kill Bill

As for worst, I'd have to vote for the interminably long and horrible Bad Boys II

Daredevil, X2, and Matrix Reloaded are thumbs in the middle. Daredevil was unsatisfying for a few reasons, the least of which would be Ben Affleck, but far from bad. X2 was rockin' all the way though, but the end with the Pheonix in the water was just a lame way to say 'To be Continued'. Matrix Reloaded was great up until the end, again, where we got 'To be Continued'.

Best:

Freddy Vs. Jason - 20 years in the making. Old School.






Kane gets flustered that he didn't get to do something silly this week. Ho hum.

In my own defense, I didn't see Whale Rider, Freddy vs. Jason, Dumb & Dumberer (thankfully), Willard or the Life of David Gale.

And I'm eagerly awaiting us getting Kill Bill on Wednesday night, because we're gonna burn out both prints by watching them so much.

Best: X2, Freddy vs. Jason, and Pirates of the Carribbean
Worst: Cabin Fever and Once Upon A Time In Mexico

I'm not talking about "artistically" the best movies, or wahtever, those are just the movies I had the most fun watching and was the most entertained watching this year. And isn't that what going the movies is all about, being entertained?

I haven't seen Matchstick Men or Lost in Translation yet, which are on the top of my "must see" list, as well as Kill Bill this Friday.

No movie left such a bad taste in my mouth after leaving the theater this year more than Cabin Fever and Once Upon A Time In Mexico. And I saw those movies on subsequent nights, chosing both over Matchstick Men for that weekend. Been kicking myself ever since.

I didn't see a lot of movies this year, but I liked pretty much everything I saw, namely (in as chronologically ordered as I can remember):

Daredevil
Cowboy Bebop
A Mighty Wind
X2
T3

I feel like I'm forgetting a few, but that's definitely the lion's share.

Upcoming: School of Rock, Kill Bill, Mystic Rhythms.

OK. I've been meaning to post this for a while. But what happened to Chris Kuselias, who used to be the co-host of Sports Brothers with Eric Kuselias. The show is now just called Sports Bash.
