2010 Worst Film Week Movie Review Worst Film Weeks 

Movie Review – Moon

When we came around once again to our Worst Film Week, we decided to offer a spot in the site to former regular author The Secret Squirrel. The Secret One, who may be either female or male, left us a year or so ago to pursue family commitments, and so could no longer continue to write for us. But back in August, I sent a missive to the Secret One to ask if he/she would be willing to jot a few precious words down about a film he/she hated. And…

From The Nest – The Secret Squirrel

Hello all. This week’s comment comes from the film Prime, which screened last night on Channel 9. Starring Meryl Streep and Uma Thurman, the film see’s Thurman dating the son of her speech therapist (Streep) unbeknownst to either of them. The following comment comes from a particular moment, when David (Bryan Greenberg) and Rafi (Thurman) return to his “apartment” after a date. Rafi is unaware that David lives with his grandparents, until the following exchange takes place: Rafi Gardet: David, who are your roommates? Blanch: [calls from upstairs] Is that…

  I watched My Best Friend’s Girl (2008) the other day, about this guy called Tank, his best mate Dustin and this girl Alexis that they both like. It seemed like it was going to be a fairly predictable romantic comedy, but with a bit of a twist it turned out to be really entertaining, if you can stand all the rude jokes. Tank: How was I suppose to know it was your sister? How was I suppose to know? It was dark, I was drunk and I thought it was…

War, Inc. (2008) starring John Cusack as some sort of superhero/hitman, Brand Hauser, is entertaining enough.  Every hero needs his flash vehicle with all the bells and whistles. Brand Hauser’s learjet and Humvee have a feature installed named “Guidestar”, a button that is pressed and the voice of Hauser’s alter ego is there to listen to problems, or give directions or advice. Guidestar adds an interesting flavour to the film, and provides some humour and backchat at the best of times. GuideStar: [from Hauser’s Humvee, which has been stripped, put on blocks, and torched…

Good afternoon all! This weeks comment, which I gleaned by poking my nose into my Humans residence (don’t tell my nestmate, otherwise I’ll be in trouble! He he!) is from the movie The Wedding Singer, starring Adam Sandler (whom I don’t like all that much) and Drew Barrymore (who I think is awesome). Julia (Drew) has just had a pretend kiss with Robbie (Adam Sandler) when her fiancée Glenn walks in the door. Robbie: Hey. I kissed her, but it didn’t mean anything, I just brought her the jacket. Glenn:…

This excerpt is from the recent film, Kung Fu Panda. An  inspirational movie about the underdog fighting for his dreams, with a touch of Jack Black humour, and more incredible computer generated images from Dreamworks. In the following scene, one of the characters has a bit of a monologue about why she thinks the idea of Po filling the role of the Dragon Warrior is ridiculous, talking to Po while he is under the effects of some sort of acupuncture. The funny little dude puts a pin in the wrong spot…
