The Dukes of Hazzard (2005)
"The Jackasses of Hazzard"
If this movie should be renamed, it should be "The Jackasses of Hazzard." To sum it up, this movie is nothing but 88 minutes of two immature country punks joyriding the famed 1968 Dodge Charger around town and in the country, chasing the girls and eluding the law.
I have been a fan of the "Dukes" and what tarnishes the movie is the characters are out of key. The overindulgence of profanity, sexual references, and drug use, has made the good name of the "Dukes" into trailer trash.
Side from comparing it to the television show, the acting was horrible. The only actor that got it right was the famed 1969 Dodge Charger named General Lee. The others have exaggerated the character's role which tarnished the movie.
The "Dukes" have been another casualty of the 21-st century Hollywood television-to-big screen transition tragedy. Skip this movie and just buy the television series on DVD.
My grade: F
Too much effort to be dramatic and trendy
The mini series "10.5" was the "big one" - that is the big disappointment in acting and camerawork.
The camera work was absolutely lousy. Nothing has become more irritating and annoying than watching quick zooms and pans. It goes on like this for the entire film and that tome was frustrating.
Now the actors featured in this travesty concentrated on being dramatic. Now most of us haven't been through a 10.5 earthquake yet even though some of the smaller 7.1 or less that we do experience, but the actors really needed to work on being more natural than emphasizing on drama on the pettiest of things.
10.5 was a disaster iteslf just like the cities featured in the series. However and hopefully not in my our lifetime should we ever really want to experience a 10.5 but many parts of 10.5 were not factual, only giving the audience the awe for the most part. Only in reality will time will tell.
King Kong (1976)
A very tacky movie.
I don't think we will see King Kong scaling Empire State Building or World Trade Center towers anytime soon. Kong's last fall, 1,365 feet from roof to street should very well put Kong, and this pathetic travesty of the 1933 classic, out of its misery -- for good.
St. Helens (1981)
Somewhat a slow movie but predictable.
The movie St. Helens was a bit slow, especially how the film was drawing up the timelines. Simply I knew what I was waiting for during the whole time was May 18, 1980 at 8:32 a.m. for the "big explosion." Needless to say, the film was a bit dull but that is almost an unfair comparison when its compared to witnessing Mt. St. Helens unleash her fury in real life. What mountain is next?
