(ag) wrote: You know a movie is bad when the best part is the credits. I don't even know if I'd give this movie a star if PSY wasn't in an animated version throughout the credits. The cast is a good one, but their talents are wasted. Every other decision in The Nut Job wasn't very good. A bland script, average animation, and a boring story led to one of the worst animated movies I've ever seen. They tried for the most part for the animals to have the same shape they do in nature, and then there's the cardinal that looks like a ball with a face drawn on it. Just a very poor job done on The Nut Job.

(it) wrote: Jackie Chan has demonstrated in recent years as well as in some of his earlier work that he can act and not just fight. This is a great example of an aging Jackie Chan not only using his fists, but his acting ability as well. Robin-B-Hood is about Fong and his friends stealing a baby for a big score. The plot is definitely uneven, but there more good here than bad. The humor is top notch and is filled with many memorable moments guarantee to make you laugh. Drama on the other hand is a mix bag, our characters do change throughout the course of the movie which makes things interesting. Although the secondary characters who are never given enough screen time, especially for Chan's character family never feel important to the plot. Nonetheless given how many action stars have been paired up kids this is one of the better efforts than can actually deliver some dramatic scenes successfully. The action scenes are limited, but are very entertaining and are better than most of Chan American efforts. All in all, the plot delivers on good laughs, excitement, and showcases Chan future as an actor instead of a fighter. Despite Chan age he still delivers some great fighting scenes and great stunts considering how many bones he broken in his career. Louis Koo is great delivering some great lines and shares many scenes with Chan which which is one of the best part of the movie. Michael Hui is great as the mentor, though his character isn't as interesting as Chan or Koo. The supporting cast was well put together, even when some of them didn't have much screen time they manage to make me care about them. The cast makes viewing this truly worth it and you can certainly tell they had a great time filming this. Robin-B-Hood is one of the better recent Chan efforts reminding us why hes an icon. If you're looking for a good action/comedy, you can't go wrong with this.

The reason it wasn't so successful was because the topic is so taboo and distrubing, its hard for people to appreciate the actual brillance of the film. The character who starts off likeable slowly becomes more and more digusting and unwatchable. Marc Webber is excellent giving off a discernibly creepy vibe that's off-putting and maddening. The story unfolds slowly almost taking you by surprise when you realize what the character is becoming or trying to become. Wonderful script, well executed and definately memorable if not disturbing.
(it) wrote: This was a fun and playful movie that had me smiling and giggling in the beginning, and then not so much towards the end - funny how that mirrors Kinsey's own tactics when interviewing his subject... "Get them to relax, so they forget that they're talking about sex."Opinions and writing and acting aside - this is an important story. To research and write a book about masturbation and homosexuality at a time when cunnilingus was thought to lead to sterility... I can't even imagine.I am also now a firm believer that Liam Neeson really can do it all. If I'm being honest, watching him during the sex scenes was about as awkward as a cow on roller skates... but towards the end, I believed his carnal side, even his "perversions". (I added those quotations mainly because I think Kinsey would appreciate it.) And Laura Linney? She plays superwife very well.All in all, really interesting movie. Really interesting and complex characters. Go see the movie... If you are a fan of any or all facets of sex (in addition to or apart from the penis-to-vagina collaboration) then you're a fan of Kinsey!!!

(gb) wrote: suspenseful the whole time, even after watching it thrice.Update: when i first saw this movie, I was 13 and had never heard of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and therefore had no idea that it was a remake. As of now, I have seen the 70s version and must say that i understand the distaste for it, but don't agree. I still like it for what it is worth.

(gb) wrote: Nearly the ENTIRETY of the film is concerned about Heston's "right of the first night".. will he or won't he? Barely any action. Bleh. Not even Richard Boone's awesome voice could keep me interested.
