Halloween (2007), a review by addicted2dvd

Title: Halloween (2007)
Movie Count: 100  :yahoo:
TV Ep Count: 45
Other  Count: 2
Time Started: 2:45pm
Rob Zombie ('The Devil's Rejects') 'reinvents the ultimate slasher classic,' unleashing Michael Myers for a bloody rollercoaster of a rampage like fans have never seen. Including a retelling of the original story that unfolds at a breakneck pace, as well as a chilling new introduction that finally reveals the secrets behind Myers' disturbing childhood, 'Halloween' breathes new life into one of film history's most terrifying tales. "It will leave you speechless" ('Bloody-Disgusting').

My Thoughts:
I been watching all the different sites I post to through-out this month... and I noticed that this movie gets very little (if any) love. It seems that most people I have talked to hate this movie. This is something I just don't understand. Maybe it is because they are comparing it to the original... I don't know. But that is something I don't do. I look at each movie on it's own merits alone.

I personally really enjoyed every minute of this movie. It felt like a prequel and a remake all rolled into one... and I personally think they did a great job with it. I found it really interesting how they portrayed his childhood... and thought they did well with the remake half as well. I know I am in the minority here... but that is ok... I am used to that when it comes to the movies I watch! Anyway... I am definitely glad I watched it today to round off my month long marathon.

My Rating
Out of a Possible 5

OK... That is it... I can't watch anything this evening... so that is the end of this year's month long marathon! Not to bad... 100 movies and 45 TV Episodes!... I broke all my records once again!!!  :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, a review by Rich

Title: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Genres:Fantasy, Adventure

As Harry Potter begins his 6th year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he discovers an old book marked mysteriously "This book is the property of the Half-Blood Prince" and begins to learn more about Lord Voldemort's dark past

My Review:
I am not a Harry Potter fan - an admission that can nearly get you publicly flogged  :surrender: Having not read the books most of the films I have found boring and wanting up to this point, the characters dull and the whole saga artificially extended solely for commercial purposes.
This film does not change my mind, I rate it as a childrens film with large budget. The only high point was the introduction of the quality acting from Jim Broadbent. This movie seemed to have a lot less action than predeccesors, and an amazing amount of CGI is involved to create the most stunning cave scene.
I found it boring, my fellow viewers were blindly loving it although they commented it does stray from the book somewhat.
