#085: Alice In Wonderland (2/10)

I have always been a fan of Tim Burton films, and I quite like Johnny Depp.  I vaguely remember watching the Disney cartoon of Alice In Wonderland, so I didn't come in with any preconceived notions or expectations for what this story should be like.  It would seem that I was setup to enjoy this film, but that is totally not what happened.  The first hour was brutal, I had to take a break before having the stamina to finish.  This mess of a movie barely manages a 2 out of 10.

#084: The Puffy Chair (6/10)

It has been really hot around here lately.  I have been spending a lot of time indoors, but unfortunately I haven't been watching very many movies.   There has been so much going on in the world of sports lately that I have been keeping pretty busy with that.  In just one more week the Tour de France will be starting, which will be occupying much of my free time during the month of July.  Even if I have plenty of time to sit down and watch movies, I usually struggle making the time to write about them.  However, I will get back on schedule and post at least one review every week.

#083: The Room (3/10)

Last week I was on vacation.  While I was taking a break from work, I also took a break from film.  I only watched one movie over the past 2 weeks.  It is actually a stretch to even call the one I watched a "movie". It had actors and a slight semblance of a plot, but that is about all. I am looking forward to catching up with a few movies this weekend.

The Room (2003) is quite possibly the worst film I have ever seen.  There is nothing about the plot that makes any sense.  Scenes don't flow at all from one to the next.  The dialog is completely nonsensical.  It was so bad that it became very humorous.  I would encourage everybody to watch The Room.  If nothing else, it will surely make the next film you watch seem like a masterpiece by comparison.  It is really hard for me to assign a score to this film because it is so bad.  If I were basing my scores on quality, it would need to receive a negative number.  However, it was fairly watchable... 3 out of 10.

#082: May 2010 Recap

Starting with May, I am going to try and recap of all the movies I watch each month.  There is no way I can write in length about every of them, but I will try to highlight them with some quick thoughts. I have emboldened the titles of the films that I would encourage you to seek out and watch if you haven't yet seen them.  This is sort of independent of whether I liked it or not, and depends more on if the film can bring something compelling to the table.  This could be an original idea for a story, or an impressive acting performance.
