Breakin All the Rules

The Plot: Qunicy Watson, after being unceremoniously dumped by his fiancé, pens a "how to" book on breaking up and becomes a best-selling author on the subject. Not wanting his male friends to suffer the same fate, he gives them advice on dumping their mates. A comedy of errors ensues.

My Thoughts:

I looked this up for the picture, and was shocked to see the movie was only given a 5.3 out of 10 on IMDB. Needless to say, I came in not expecting much.....

I have to admit, this is really funny! Of course, that would depend on what type of humor you like, but, well, I'll say this: when a pug gets drunk its time to pause for a laugh-fest, ok? :laugh:

I really had a hard time getting myself to watch this, but this is definitely what I want in a romantic comedy!

Broken Arrow

The Plot: Terrorists steal nuclear warheads from the US military but don't count on a pilot and park ranger spoiling their plans.

My Thoughts:

This is yet another movie I didn't have high hopes for. I'm not into any war-type movie, and this is close enough. However, there was an aspect to it that kept me interested. There is a certain relationship between the rouge military pilot and his old partner that makes seeing them fight all the more climatic.

At some points the movie can really drag on, and some military terms and meetings just, idk, make you lose interest. Or maybe its just me.  :laugh: If its not in lamen's terms then I typically don't understand it!!

I have liked Broken Arrow as well. John Woo was not quite allowed to be himself yet, but his style comes through several times. Also, John Travolta is quite good as the villain here and lots of fun to watch; in later movies he'd drift way to much into overacting...

I also like "Broken Arrow". It's an entertaining action movie. Not more, not less!

Nanny McPhee

The Plot: Emma Thompson stars as a governess who uses magic to rein in the behavior of seven ne'er-do-well children in her charge.

My Thoughts:

 I saw this before, and its about the same as I remembered it. McPhee is a great family tale, but I just wish we could see her a little more without the make-up than it showed. Pretty touching, all in all a great movie...one that I think I'll watch with Dad sometime soon. :)

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

The Plot: Blacksmith Will Turner teams up with eccentric pirate "Captain" Jack Sparrow to save his love, the governor's daughter, from Jack's former pirate allies, who are now undead.

My Thoughts: Wow. About 2 and a half hours I sat through right there. For me, that's a record......but I don't mind!! ;D

Pirates were never really my thing, and I never bothered to check this out. I have to say, Jack Sparrow is the craziest pirate I've ever seen!! :clap: There's not much to say other than the movie is crazy action and fun to see! Orlando Bloom, Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley, excellent job with it all!

School of Rock

The Plot: A wannabe rock star in need of cash poses as a substitute teacher at a prep school, and tries to turn his class into a rock band.

My Thoughts: This movie is....indescribable. The seriousness of what Jack Black's character is doing - fraud, some would say kidnapping though the kids went of their own free will, all of it just phases by! The movie truly is all of about passion in music. That message alone is worth about a 3.5, but its also complimented with killer music!! (Wanna see it with me, dad? :P )

Really, I don't think there's anything like this!! :laugh:

Super Size Me

The Plot: While examining the influence of the fast food industry, Morgan Spurlock personally explores the consequences on his health of a diet of solely McDonald's food for one month.

My Thoughts: I had to watch this a couple years ago for science class, then again last year for health class. It grossed me out back then.  :yucky: It grosses me out now!!

The movie tells the truth. Fast food is making people fat, with additives that addict people to the stuff, and businesses don't care because they're making money. They get to kids so they're familiar with the characters and grow up to eat there all the more as adults. The results? Umm.....disgustingness shown, like obesity so severe you need surgery to come back from it. (and yes, they show the surgery, inside the body in full color and all!)

The truth is, this is one of my favorite movies to watch. It speaks the truth and its got kickin music and paintings. But I also lose my appetite every time I see it, so it's, like, impossible for me to accurately rate it. Though, I definitely recommend it. If you're into fun documentaries with a huge gross-out factor, this is made for you.

Quick tidbit, 6 weeks after the movie came out, McDonald's completely got rid of the "Super Size" option. They claimed that decision had nothing to do with the movie. ::)

Not really... I can tell you that in my alcool and drug days I have pass a complete year eating only at fast food (McDo, Subway, Burger King, Rodi and Salvatore) since I didn't had time to do food. I never got fat (not even pass my healthy weight limit) and my health was as usual. It isn't McDo or the other fast food chains that are responsible if the people become fat, but the fact most of them stay in front of the TV and don't really do exercise.

This kind of "documentary" is the worst thing that can be made because he doesn't name the real guilty. I'm really shocked that poor propaganda films like that are shown as the truth in american schools...

There are always exceptions and I think you might be one Jimmy. But, I would be interested to see what your blood work and relevant tests would have shown during those days.

It has been quite a while since I saw this but I believe Morgan Spurlock and his girlfriend were "health nuts" before he went into the project. I know that his baseline physical assessment was that of a healthy individual before he started on this journey.

He had a complete physical, including lots of medical tests, to compare his baseline data with those that were gathered during the process.

I was shocked at how quickly his body deteriorated based solely on his dietary changes. And, as he changed it affected all other areas of his life.

It is an interesting concept and made a film that I found quite fascinating. I would recommend this to others - it does give you something to think about.

I haven't seen a doctor since at least 18 years Kathy. My mother bothers me with that every time we met, but as I say to her everytime : I feel good and I don't need to see a doctor to find me imaginary diseases just to sold me a fortune in pills. To be honest if I can spend the rest of my life without meeting another one I will be more than happy. Most diseases are created by stress and the doctors are a stress inducing factors.
