Mission: Impossible II (2000) my rating 4 IMDB rating 5.7
I watched this movie before the release of MI III. And it stopped me from watching MI III..btw, MI I not bad.
Started by Tom Cruise with cool demonstration of rock climbing skills, the rest of the movie is unquestionable a waste of time and film. There are many stupid stories from Hollywood. Nonetheless this tends to be among the stupider I ever watched. Horrible spy tricks contributed a lot to this conclusion. If there is one thing not too bad, that’s the music, which received many more awards than the movie itself.
Around the World in 80 Day (2004) my rating 5 IMDB rating 5.6
Not fun at all, not serious either, a ruin to the classic. Definitely lower than Jacky Cheng’s average level.
War of the Worlds (2005) my rating 5 IMDB rating 6.6
I hated 99% of this movie. When I knew how much they spent on it (132 million USD), I started to hate the rest 1%.
Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise has done some good movies, but this one certainly not.
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) my rating 5 IMDB rating 7.3
The first of this series "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark" is widely considered a masterpiece, and I do agree. However, this sequential is poorly done IMHO.
Resident Evil (2002) my rating 6 IMDB rating 6.2
The original game is a milestone in the game industry. However this film adaption is not. Even the sequential title is a better one.
Sleepless in Seattle (1993) my rating 6 IMDB rating 6.6
Both mine and IMDB rating suggests the quality of this movie is far below its fame.
It talks all about falling in love at first hear, but nothing afterward, which should be more important.
Some parts I like in the film: first, the romantic empire state building, as selected in a few other romance films; second, soundtracks, including my all time jazz favorite "As Time Goes By" (also selected in the romantic masterpiece "Casablanca").
无极 (2005) my rating 6 IMDB rating 5.6
近期倒是有几个值得去影院看的片子，推荐一下：Ratatouille；还有两个在影院里播放的歌剧作品：Metropolitan Opera: The Magic Flute, Metropolitan Opera: The First Emperor (秦始皇)。肯定都在8分以上~
