I'm a fan of the Rat movie also.

Frankly my least favorite so far is Wall-E, believe it or not. I thought the first half was so-so and the second half not worth the time.
I remember seeing Jumper a while back - a completely asinine movie based solely around Nightcrawler's teleportation ability from X2 (which still ranks as the best Marvel comic book movie that I've seen) and starring Hayden Christensen,who managed to prove that he was just as equally terrible playing other characters not named Anakin Skywalker. :roll:

So now I've just watched Push, another comic-based movie which also rips off the mutant aspect of X-Men (even though they're called "psychics", they're bassically mutants since each one has a single power), but instead of only focusing on one mutant ability like Jumper did, Push focuses on several powers such as telekinisis, telepathy/mind control, healing powers, and future sight. So is this movie any better than what Jumper was?

No... absolutely not. Tongue

The main character was godly awful - a complete dumbass who has little experience or practice using his psychic power ("pushing", which is a dumb name for telekinisis), refuses to listen to the warnings of Dakota Fanning's future seer, and tries to get revenge for his dad's murder against two men VASTLY superior to him in power (and is only saved due to Dakota's intervention). I absolutely REFUSE to believe that he could've come up with a plan as remotely complex as the heroes executed in the finale, given just how f*cking stupid he's been for the majority of the story.

Other characters are introduced with little to no development apart from how they know the main character, aside from the heroine, but the plot twists involving her character at the end were confusing (in a Saw-twist kinda way) and only made me hate her as well. About the only aspect that I found vaguely interesting in the movie was Dakota Fanning's character and her rivalry with fellow seer, Lolipop Girl, but again, she wasn't the main focus of the movie (Dumbass McStupid was).

Other problems that bothered me were some of the odd coincidences (Hong Hong must be the capital of mutants or something), ridiculous actions of the characters (the final battle between two powerful psychics is a boring-ass fistfight), and plotpoints that went nowhere (a huge part of the story was about saving Dakota's mother, but we never get to that point - the movie just ends, trying to pointlessly set up for a potential sequel).

3/10
Jarhead

I dont think I really appreciated this one when I first saw it for whatever reason.
I rewatched it the other day and enjoyed it thoroughly. I agree that it was a much better film than Hurt Locker (which many people made comparisons to on its release) - but I need to rewatch that one as well.
Jake Gyllanhaal was fantastic as was Jamie Foxx. Definitely a film that was unfairly overlooked - at least by me. This is the Full Metal Jacket of its time.

The Human Centipede (first sequence)

woah. that was one sick fuck of a movie!

it wasn´t good but it was quite accurate in delivering the nasty. and the villain was very evil. and for me as a german it was fun to see germany as that creepy place where you got stuck in the middle of a wood and the cell doesn´t work and all people are just cruel, sick people and the best thing you can expect is die a horrible death...

the actors were bad except the evil surgeon. he was... really fucking evil!

oh and by the time the sicko yells

[spoiler:3hd22pch]´YES FEEEED HER!!![/spoiler:3hd22pch]

don´t blame me watching that sick shit! blame yourself or your parents!

Add "and the birthplace of boon and heinrich!" to make my sphincter tighten up!
'nuff said! :o
my lasting impression of the movie was that it could of been so much better, other than the central plot device the movie utterly blew, such a shame. oh well lets hope the full sequence is a bit better.

oh and if we're talking about German weirdos dont forget the guy who advertised for someone to murder and then eat their penis... great little docu that.
lol. yeah. don´t forget the german penis eaters!
