New Movies HotOrNot (2006/11/11)

November 11, 2006

Borat – HOT. Great reviews. Friends agree that it’s very funny, but it also makes them uncomfortable at parts.

Flushed Away – HOT/NOT. For kids more than adults.

Babel – HOT/NOT. New Cate Blanchett/Brad Pitt flick, trailer looks really good. Same guy who did September 11 and 21 Grams. Sounds like it’s very complex, and the reviews are very polarized between loving it and hating it.

Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! – NOT. Classic 1990 Pedro Almodovar flick with a gay Antonio Banderas.

Stranger Than Fiction – HOT/NOT. Another one I thought was interesting from the trailer but the reviews are so-so. Will Ferrel in an existentialist comedy that is hopefully better than I Heart Huckabees.

Conversations With Other Women – HOT/NOT. Down to only one theatre showing it. I want to like it because of Aaron Eckhart, but it doesn’t seem like anyone is seeing this movie. What’s up with the limited release?

Night of the Living Dead 3D – NOT. 2006 remake of a classic. Almost zero reviews out there for it, the few I saw were bad.

Harsh Times – NOT. Harsh Times at South Central High. Christian Bale and first time director who was the screenwriter for several ok flick like Training Day and Fast and the Furious. Might be okay if you really want action and are willing to cut-corners on good directing.

Keeping Mum – NOT. Another horrible Rowan Atkinson film. Who’d have suspected?

The Return – NOT. Best described as “A halfway decent editor could easily chop this down to 30 minutes without losing any plot points, but it would still be a tedious slog.”

A Good Year – NOT. I hate Russel Crowe flicks. Apparantly other people hate this one too.

The Santa Clause 3 – NOT. WTF? Tim Allen is still doing this shit? Screw a fake documentary about the death of GW, someone line Allen up in their crosshairs. I’m still reeling that they made a Saw 3… but this?

New movies playing in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and the surrounding regions (Kanata, Barrhaven, Orleans, Gatineau, Hull). Updated daily.

    what’s wrong with huckabees?

    stranger than fiction looks like the same movie with a shuffled cast merged with Adaptation.

    as I feel lovely Maggie Gyllenhaal is ever playing the same character (i.e. quirky, beautiful, lover of ‘losers’ and freaks.)

  2. jaybird Says:

    I found Huckabees a confusing mess. It interesting (because I never knew what was going to happen next), but it kind of felt like it was put together haphazardly by college students.

    It might have been that I didn’t have the right background in philosophy to “get it”…

  3. rox Says:

    I was in a couple of philosophy courses when it came out, it might explain my affinity for it. As I find the subject really dry so I perfer if Hollywood sexes it up for me.
