Wednesday Review: The Borrowers

This week’s review is of a film I’ve never heard of until yesterday called The Borrowers. The film was made in 1997 by some company I’ve never heard of called Polygram Filmed Entertainment. Maybe it’s big over in the UK? I dunno. Well anyway, I had two reasons for deciding to watch this film. The first, it has a good cast of familiar and talented actors, the second, it reminded me of the 1980s cartoon called The Littles. Apparently both of these are based off of books ... figures. So I have no idea what this is going to be like, so on with the review!

Wednesday Review: Constantine

This week’s review is another movie I have never seen, so once again I am unable to provide a synopsis of the film to start the review. This week I’m reviewing Constantine, a film based off a DC/Vertigo Comics series Hellblazer. The film sparked my interest because I recently read a comic book with Constantine as the leading character, so I thought I’d take a look into the character’s story by watching the film (of course, we all know how crudely films are adapted from books, but the film will suit my interest). So anyway here’s the review.

Wednesday Review: Up

This week’s review is of a movie I have never seen before so I can’t give one of my proper opening account assessment of the film this time. This week’s review is of the Disney-Pixar film, Up. I hear this film is really sad ... something about a dead wife wanting to fly balloons or something ... I dunno. Well anyway, let’s get started then shall we?

Tweeting Tuesdays?

So I spent my Friday night watching The Sandlot 2, and I was tweeting away while doing so. I enjoyed tweeting about the movie to my followers while watching it, however, I do not know if they enjoyed the continual tweets. So here's my question, would you be interested in reading my tweets about a movie as I'm watching it? I feel like I should start "Tweeting Tuesdays" or something, where I just tweet my thoughts about a movie to you guys, where you will be able to respond to me while it's happening.

I'll be doing this in addition to my weekly Wednesday Reviews. And both will be on different movies, so more movies to hear about.

Wednesday Review: Thunderpants

Well after all this time I figure it’s about time I review a movie I hate. Today’s feature: Thunderpants. “Thunderpants?” you say? Sounds oddly humorous. Well it’s not. But it was made, so maybe some idiots out there enjoy humour that requires zero brain power. Or maybe only people who are stoned out of their minds would find it funny. Either way, this film isn’t funny. Nor is it good in any other way. I once watched it and decided that I’d recommend to everyone NOT to watch it. And here’s why.
Thunderpants Title Card.
Allow me to sum up the plot in one paragraph. Patrick Smash (henceforth known as “Farting Kid”) is constantly farting. There is never a moment when he is not. This drives his father away from home and causes all people at school to hate him because he smells; everyone except Ron Weasley who is a super genius who can’t smell. So Ron Weasley invents Thunderpants, pants that absorb the smell. Then he decides to take the pants one step further and invents Thunderpants 2, a flying machine powered by Farting Kid’s farts. Then some guys in black suits take Ron away and Farting Kid travels the world with some opera dude to find him, only to end up accidentally killing someone with his farts, then being put on death row, then being hired by the USSC to fly Thunderpants 3 to a satellite with his farting, because those men in black suits where American governments agents who hired Ron Weasley to make a spaceship powered by farts. So Farting Kid farts his way up to the satellite, saves the people there, and lives out his dream of becoming an astronaut. The end. Yes, it may sound funny now. But I promise you, in a right state of mind, you will find almost nothing funny in this film.
