I saw some of Grandma's Boy, but not all of it because I fell asleep :-b . It had a couple good moments, but for the most part it was not worth my time.

5/10

I've been slacking on my movie watching lately.

I did get a chance to see The Hills Have Eyes. Score - 5.5/10

I usually am very generous in my reviews of horror films, but this one really bit the big one. The story was lame and the only good characters have very little screen time. Movie wasn't scary at all but had some nice scenes of gore and violence. A big gripe of mine was that there was two hot chicks in the movie and there was no nudity/sex scene. I Kinda expect to see that in a R-rated horror movie!! Overall, this movie stunk and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

I finally got around to see X-Men 3 this past week. I was sorely disappointed. :-t

Click - I really didn't want to pay to see this, but my friends wouldn't go do anything else. I wasn't one of Sandler's best, maybe somewhre around Big Daddy or Mr. Deeds. The best moments were a recurring joke with a stuffed animal duck.

4/10

Nacho Libre - See the above for my reasons for actually seeing this in theaters. It was just plain bad. Jack Black did a good job using a different voice, but his accent would occassionally slip for Spanish to Italian. This movie tries to be funny, but it falls short on just about every joke. Saving Silverman was a better Jack Black movie.

3/10

Be Cool - I'd heard the sequel to Get Shorty was awful, so I figured on waiting for video. Finally got around to seeing it, and while it's not as good as the original, this was a fun entertaining film. Whereas the first movie tried to be clever, this one just went straight for funny. Vince Vaughn as the tall white-boy who thinks he's a ghetto gansta and the Rock as a gay bodyguard were a great pair of characters. Some great cameos, like James Woods, and Danny Devito. The guy from OutKast (name escapes me), had some great moments too. Overall, if you liked Get Shorty, you will most likely enjoy this film.

7/10

Spanglish - Figured I'd save the best for last. I had wanted to see this movie after I'd heard it was different from Sandler's usual, and boy was it ever. If you're looking for another Happy Gilmore, etc don't bother. This was more of a comedic drama. Tia Leoni does a great job portraying the frantic good intented antagonist in the story. There are some excellent lines, and the story feels very real, even the way everything ends, its not very hollwood-ish. Sandler actually does a good job playing a different character than his other dozen movies, and even the kids do some solid acting. Very entertaining if you're looking for some spots of comedy and lots of real life drama.

8/10

I agree maddog - Spanglish was a break from the Sandler "norm" and I also really enjoyed it.

Paz Vega was very very appealing in that movie.

more reviews...

Suburbia- 8.5/10 stars giovanni ribisi, steve zahn, parker posey. A character development kinda story with interesting dialogue( i believe it's based off a play). The ending leaves more questions than answers but I supppose it's meant to be that way.Steve Zahn was flat out great IMO.

BLOW- 9/10 Johnny Deep, enuff said. Good drug flick, and mr. pee wee herman as a drug dealer, genius ;-D

The Skeleton Key- 5/10 meh, more crazy plots. It just gets too wishy washy towards the end, I don't care much for this film. I must note that Kate Hudson is straight up HOT though.

Swingers- 7/10 with Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn. Clever and witty comedy dealing with relationships and dating. Vince is great in one of his 1st roles, he as obnoxious and hilarious as ever.

Great movie. It's funny, my wife didn't really care for it and I think it's a rare "guy" movie that involves a lot of talking about feelings, etc. Sort of a chick flick for guys.
