What do you get when you mix too much free time, cola (or any variation), and Mentos?

Way to many answers to list:

Take a lame "plot" story, add a well know action-hero actor, and a Hollywood movie studio that listens to its fans - yes, really, it actually happened!

Mix it all up and you get:

Review: X-Men: The Last Stand 
Saturday, May 27, 2006, 06:32 PM - Review
They say the third time is the charm ... Boy, were they ever wrong, based on the third X-Men movie, X-Men: The Last Stand.

Pretty good action sequences (other than jerky jumping and flying stunts), special effects that mesh perfectly with the live props, and a decent storyline, unfortunately, don't offset the lack of emotion and lackluster directing/editing.

Worth it for X-Man and comic book fans. For everyone else, wait for the DVD and rent it.

At least they won't be making a 4th movie. Hopefully ...

Overall: 3.5 of 5

Reviews: RottenTomatoes, Rolling Stone

Watching: The Electric Playground

Movie Review: Poseidon 
Saturday, May 13, 2006, 06:14 PM - Review
Oh the humanity! (ok, it's an old cliche :)

No, I'm not talking about the story - I'm talking about the Poseidon movie itself!

Like the other blockbuster movies this year so far, the action sequences and special effects are amazing (especially the opening title sequence (Yes, for those who have watched the movie, that whole "around the ship" sequence is computer generated!)). But the acting and plot are easily forgotten. Had they spent 1/10th of the CGI budget on the script and actors, the movie would have been better.

Overall: 2 of 5 (split between action and CGI)

Reviews: RottenTomatoes

Watching: MutantX
