A Walk To Remember
My Response: Whatever. Mandy Moore does a great job, "Only Hope" and "Cry: are sweet songs, and I'm a sucker for the love story. If a girl insists on watching this (and they do), I won't complain.
Dude, Where's My Car?
My Response: [What's on my back?] DUDE, this movie is [What's on mine?] SWEET!
Josie And The Pussycats
My Response: You are all ignorant! You know why everyone has a problem with this movie? Because they haven't seen it! It's a very funny, very smart satire of the pop music industry, and it's got a killer soundtrack! I've had "Pretend To Be Nice" stuck in my years!
My Response: I don't know when it became cool to say, "The story sucked, but the visuals are incredible," when talking about Avatar, but guess what? The story didn't suck! It's a time-tested, appealing, exciting story about an anti-hero and his redemption. The visuals were indeed incredible, but I promise you, Avatar could not have earned $2.7 billion worldwide if the story weren't working on some level.
My Response: This is our generation's ultimate sweeping Hollywood epic, haters! The special effects! The romance! The iconic theme song! Once this won Best Picture, everyone seemed to turn on Titanic. I, for one, will never let go.
My Response: I say this a lot, but a movie doesn't have to be good to be awesome. I'll be the first person to admit that I don't think 300 is a good film. The dialogue is horrible, and the story is just ridiculous. But, HOLY CRAP THIS MOVIE IS AWESOME! This really fulfills
My Response: Pretty much the only thing I remember about this Vin Diesel comedy is the Peter Panda dance, but, boy, do I remember it. "Hop like a kangaroo three times/Side-step, Side-step like the crabs do...." I think if the doubters would just embrace the Peter Panda dance, their complaints would be pacified.
My Response: If Cellular took itself seriously, I would hang up on it instantly. Thankfully, it doesn't, and I find it's brand of campy action and silly dialogue irresistible!
My Response: The story is the real draw here. Sure, The Notebook is gorgeously shot, and it features Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in top form, but its the romantic image of a man retelling his Alzheimer's-afflicted wife their love story every single day that's impossible to forget.
