Mr. 3000


I finally got Netflix. I’ve been spending my money renting movies for awhile now. Sometimes my late fees cost more than the movies I rent. This online rental is much cheaper and more convienent. One of my first movies I got from Netflix is Mr. 3000.

Bernie Mac plays, Stan Ross, an egocentric baseball player who cares nothing but being in the Hall of Fame. He quickly quits baseball once he achieved his career record of 3000 hits which would definately place him in the Hall of Fame. Nine years later after exploiting his 3000 record for personal fame and business, he finds there is a mistake in his stats that he’s three hits shy of 3000. Ross joins his old team to get his three hits but finds his game is not the same as it was nine years ago.

Expect to see Bernie Mac’s fast-wit talking. It’s hilarious. He actually plays a believeable baseball player. Overall, this is a decent comedic baseball movie.

Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

Napoleon Dynamite


After hearing good praises from people, I had to go rent the movie. This low budge movie has horrible acting and dialog. That’s the least of it’s issues.

Napoleon, who seems to be autistic, plays a typical high school loser that befriends a hispanic student, Pedro, that wants to run for class president. The events in the movie seems to wonder off aimlessly, and the characters in the movies are more idiotic than the other.

15 minutes into the movie made me wonder why so many of my friends love this movie and quote it’s lines into every conversation? Then it hits me, they be autistic as well.

Rating: ★★★½☆☆☆☆☆☆

Dawn of the Dead (2004)


This was to be the remake of George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, but I wouldn’t call it much of a remake as the only thing relating to the original is that the survivors seek refuge in a shopping mall, but everything else is new. Compared to many of the older zombie movies, Dawn of the Dead takes a more serious note. The movie took some queues from 28 Days Later and pit the survivors against zombies that are quick and even sometimes nimble making them all more terrifying.

The zombie chase scenes are tense especially when the survivors are driving through a post-apocalyptic ruined city. This movie has one of the best intros and will keep you hooked til the end.

Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆

Kicking and Screaming


Any movie Will Ferrel stars in is bound to be funny. Kicking and Screaming is no exception. Ferrel takes up a coaching job to coach a losing soccer team to compete against and to impress his dad, played by Robert Duval. With no knowledge of coaching, he gets help from football legend himself, Mike Ditka.

Will Ferrel does what he does best, being a goof ball, but in this movie Ferrel tones it down a bit and his antics aren’t has funny as his last couple of movies. If I can compare this movie to something it would be like Frank the Tank from “Old School” coaching the “Bad News Bears

Rating: ★★★★★★½☆☆☆

Starwars Episode III- Revenge of the Sith


I can honestly say this is better than the last two movies from Lucas. I’ll also have to agree that this movie is much darker than any of the other Starwars movie. Revenge of the Sith really completes the series and leaves off where episode IV begins.

The dialog and acting in the movie felt a bit dull but it is made up by great looking effects and light saber battles. In the end, I wasn’t convince Anakin and Padme’s relatioship was strong enough in the movie, and the ending felt a bit rushed. Besides those complaints Episode III if fun to watch even if you aren’t a Starwars fan.

Rating: ★★★★★★★½☆☆
