RoboCop 1987 web designer reviewed [User Review]

Bitter,Bitterometer,meter RoboCop (1987)

In a futuristic Old Detroit, the crime rates are soaring. Thirty-one cops have been wasted since Omni-Consumer Products took over responsibility for the police department; but, undaunted, Officer Murphy (Weller) and his cocky colleaguette Lewis (Allen) pursue a van-load of bank bandits into a derelict steel mill, where the sado-capitalists corner Murphy and use him for target practice. OCP's plans to construct Delta City can only go ahead if the designated area is safe enough for workers to go about their business unmolested. Their 'enforcement droid' ED 209, a galumphing giant cyborg, short-circuits at its unveiling, leaving the moribund Murphy, his insides wired into a computer-controlled titanium shell, to save the day. But RoboCop is not programmed to deal with corruption within the organisation. Verhoeven's blend of comic strip and snuff movie is vile, violent, and very funny. The pace is breakneck, and when the wit does run out, way-out weaponry and whole-scale destruction keep the appalled excitement burning.

Thor - Poppy Corny kinda Movie [User Review]

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review, 2011Kenneth BranaghNatalie Portman Bitter,Bitterometer,meter Thor (2011)

The experience watching "Thor" is exactly like eating that tub of popcorn - it is a lazy choice, un-inspiring, fast-food flavor, nothing more than salt/grease, and taste exactly like the last time you had it - an experience built to be forgotten.

"Thor" tells a story where this blonde boyish 'god of thunder', is being cast to earth after making an arrogant mistake and power stripped; he however learnt the value of life and love and regain his power through the short journey on earth, kissed a human girl, and recovered his god-ish status.

Grown Ups (2010)

All I had to hear about this movie is that it's an Adam Sandler movie. Typical, tired trash that gets churned out over and over for some damn reason. I don't understand why anyone in Hollywood thinks it's a good idea to make another movie using the same cast as all of the other Adam Sandler movies. Not only are the cast members the same, the story line is the same, the characters are the same, the jokes are the same. There's a term used in economics, point of diminishing returns. I think Adam Sandler and Will Farrell movies are getting to the point where it won't be worth making another. (or so I hope)

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review, 2010 Frozen  (2010)

***** Spoiler Alert *****

Yeah, the movie is named Frozen. Apparently, there have been several movies made named Frozen, all of which are completely different stories by different people. This gem, made in 2010, is the most recent.

I'm going to be lazy and copy the storyline from imdb. I feel that I've wasted 93 minutes of my life on this trash heap, there's no sense spending any extra time writing what has already been written.

“In Mount Holliston, snowboarders Dan Walker, his girlfriend Parker O'Neil and his best friend Joe Lynch don't have enough money to buy cable car tickets. Parker bribes Jason, an employee of the skiing station, with one hundred dollars. When the system is nearing closure, they force Jason to let them have the last pass. However, Jason needs to resolve a problem and his colleague misunderstands his instructions and stops the cable car, and the trio of snowboarders gets stranded on the chairlift on the top of the mountain. When they see that the lights of the ski resort had been turned off, they need to make a choice: leave the chairlift or freeze to death.”

RE4 - Afterlife - unswallowable piece of crap [User Review]

Un-swallowable crap in your face.

I know this day would come. We all know it. we have all seen a money making cow being milked to beef jerkies before. But when it actually happens I am still feeling strongly about, err, the money and time I lost. Watching "Resident Evil: Afterlife" is so far the most regrettable cinema experience I have had this year; it is so bad that I kept walking out and in pretending to have toilet break, just to avoid having an aneurism outburst.
I had very little expectation to this movie in particular; I was a fan to RE the game as 1,2,3, for its dark atmosphere and hopeless zombie theme. It didn’t really get to extend to the movie that much after the first movie – the movie serious is largely a fancy action flick where this unknown character, Alice, being an experimental product and superhero, jumping around using weapons and then superpower to kill zombies. Around RE3 they try to rub back some in-game characters to attract the game lovers, but ultimately the movie is a monster of its own; you watch pretty chicks, being Milla and others, running and shooting.
That can’t be too bad, right?

Soaring Above Expectations – Disney’s UP [User Review]

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review, 2009 Up (2009)

Filled with wonderment and intrigue, UP stars a heart warming 70 year old man, a young boy scout a few hilarious creatures on their adventure that captures the attention of every generation. The movie tells a timeless tale of adventure and aging that touches on almost every emotion.

Carl has just about given up watching almost all of his dreams float away, from the dream of having children, to living out his shared adventure with his wife. He has just about given up, until he has no more choices. Carl is 70 year old man, retired from selling balloon and has got quite the scheme up his sleeve. He literally gets enough balloons attached to his house to get his house flying. Okay, so when I first saw previews for the movie, I had to say I was a bit skeptical that I would be able to relate to an old grumpy man that is floating around with a house of balloons, yet I was pulled in. The story was compelling, and demanded empathy, demanded understanding and I never wanted the story to end.
