there's something about ..... movie reviews

Ratings as follows:

***** Mai Tu Liao
**** Wah… Solid leh
*** Ok Lah
** Ni Nabeh
* WTF is this

This show is also known as The new Mr and Mrs Pitt. The first half of the show ain't that bad. But the second half... REAL BAD.

I felt they drag the storyline a bit too long. The shooting scenes are so amateurish it seems like the director wasn't too interested about the action sequence but merely wanted to show the relationship between the smiths.

Just too cliche. Bad.

ratings: **

This show is funny. Some classic scenes. But the love story lacks punch. I mean seriously who cares about love story in a show like this? This doesn't belong in the same class as There's something about Mary or American Pie I, but a good top 10. The DVD came with good bonus materials as well.

Ratings: ****

This is Meet the Black Parents but not as funny. They tried to play on the racist jokes but to limited effect. I dunno why, but why is Hollywood trying to create a Romantic Guy out of Ashton Kutcher or Mr Demi Moore? His last few movies is about Love Love Love. I think he is better as a Funny Guy. Bernie Mac is his usual funny self. He really save the movie.

Ratings: ***

SPL?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I should have trusted my instinct.... I mean who the F#$^ would name a movie SPL!?!?!?!?!?!??!?! Nabeh!! How silly is that!

I remember when the movie came out, they bill this as the best action movie promising great fighting sceneS between Sammo Hung and Donnie Yen.

Firstly, Donnie Yen is at best a supporting role if you ask me and yet his face is as big as Sammo Hung. The fighting scene?!?!??! NABEH... THERE IS JUST ONE....between the both of them.

In fact, Sammo Hung only fight just once throughout the whole show!! And that's it.

The whole show got only 2 fighting scenes and the choreagraphy is really bad. To think you have 2 of the famous Kung Fu chaps, and they couldn't come out a good fighting sequence at all. Even Ong Bak and Tom Yum Goong is more entertaining. This is a real shame.

The story line..... it's triad vs Police. They tried to make this a Infernal Affair standard but failed. Also, certain scenes are too gruesome.

Rating: *
