WAR 4 Charlie

WAR 4 Charlie
Originally uploaded by macslost.
Not sure Charlie even likes war, but that's not the point. The big 3 this month have been 'War of The Worlds', 'Fantastic Four' and 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.' Now, I haven't seen Charlie yet, but it has trained squirrels, so it's already better than the first 2.

WAR OF THE WORLDS: In a nutshell: 'Signs' meets 'Independence Day'. Stop. Go. Stop. Go. BIG! ACTION! slow. scary. BIG! ACTION! slow. scary. Rinse. Repeat. While the visuals were great and the suspense was genuine, the cut between the action and the suspense kept getting in the way. And the end BLEW. I mean really. It's nice a MASSIVE WORLD-WIDE ATTACK FROM SPACE can be wrapped up neatly in 3 minutes. Whatever.

FANTASTIC FOUR: In a nutshell: About as good as Daredevil and The Punisher. So if you found those amusing, then this one will entertain you as well. Reed Richards wasn't nearly geeky-preoccupied enough, Doom was weak and nowhere near mego-maniacal enough. The Thing was pretty good, but the effects got lazy as it cut between trying to make the suit seem like rock and just looking like rubber. Sloppy. Sue Storm? As bland and uninteresting as the comic. Well, except for the fact that she's Jessica Alba. I can't WAIT for her swimsuit movie. Johnny Storm = Awesome. Chris Evans was on fire!! (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! I rule!) Truly entertaining all the way through. You've seen him in the trailer.

CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY: In a nutshell: Squirrels! With nuts! Can't wait. To be concluded...
