Nothing too new, fresh, or scary to say about this sequel. Sadly, its just a typical sequel to cash in on the first one's success :-t One positve I want to note was the special effects during a scene inside the bathroom. That was pretty off the hook ;-D

Bottomline- Rent with the wifey or girlfriend


Yeah I saw this a little while back and have been taking a little time to review it.. I liked it when I was watching it.. but the next day or two later I didn't think much of it.. so that makes me think that it wasn't as good as I originally thought .. Just like J2thez said .. it is nothing new story wise.. really so all the things that scared you in the first one just don't quite have the same effect.

Worth a rent .. but save your 8-10 bucks

DUKE wrote:I watched Empire Of The Sun again over the weekend. I first watched it on cable a long time ago, as I'm a huge fan of Christian Bale's acting. This one is when he was a kid. It is an absolute brilliant performance and a great movie. He (Bale) is a child in this performance, but is as good as any kid I've seen on film. I've always loved this movie and seem to go back and watch it from time to time. John Malkovich is also in it and is also very good, though Bale steals the show IMO. I think this movie deserves more props than what it gets and would definitely recomend it. I give it 8/10.


Empire of the Sun is a pretty good movie. I study Asian politics so some of the Spielberg stuff gets to me. But I do like how the movie shows hardly any Chinese people which is where the story takes place. Thats how things were though. The Chinese were often considered the lowest class in their own country. If you know that, this movie has some historical significance. Christian Bale does do an incredible job in this movie. 7.5/10

Watched "Stir Crazy" the other day for the umpteenth time. Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor as prisoners. Always a classic.

Finally got around to seeing Million Dollar Baby today. All the hype is deserved - one of, if not the best movie I've seen in years.

Also caught Jersey Girl the other day. It was predictable, but it was cute. Something to watch if there's nothing else to do - I wouldn't go out of my way to see it or anything.

I saw Hostage with Bruce Willis this weekend. It was a solid movie, but not anything special. It was intense though, kept me on the edge of my seat.

I'd give it a 7/10.

I watched Reservoir Dogs, its one of my favorite movies but I hadn't seen it in awhile. Tarantino broke out with this movie and brought in his unique(to a certain degree) style. It triumphs any of the other movies that he would go on to make. Check out this awesome flick for a great blend of comedy, action, and drama. ;-D

Watched Cellular last night. It's an ok action flick, but not to impressive IMO. Several time I found myself thinking no flippen way. In one scene he couldn't go up the stairs cause he would lose the call on his cell, but later when being chased he runs up the stairs without worring about the call, and guess what ... he doesn't lose the call. I doubt I would watch it again, unless there was nothing on.

4/10
