Wait, i saw The Muppets Movie which was ok tho i preferred the Muppets when Kermit was running from Miss Piggy.

I'm not really a fan of the Muppets. I don't really like any of their tv shws or films. Plus they ruined "Bohemian Rhapsody".

I love the Muppets: A Christmas Carol though. Everytime it comes on at Christmas I watch it. I think that might even be the movie I've watched most often.

Anyway, finally found the time to watch some movies now it's vacation, so I downloaded a bunch. The first one to finish was Trainspotting. And..I don't know, it was underwhelming and I didn't really love it. Plus the Scottish accents were pretty hard to understand sometimes. And the fact they showed a dead baby was err...surprising I guess. Good soundtrack though.

I think I'm going to watch another one, Soof. It's a Dutch feelgood movie I've been wanting to see for a long time now.

I just watched The Wicker Man (2006) and here are some thoughts about it

 

I liked Nicolas Cage's acting he made the movie 100 times better. The character he played Edward a cop, is an idiot. He gets a letter in the beginning about a missing child on summers isle and and his cop friend is like "Let that be someone else problem". Shouldn't he and the rest of the cops be more concerned about a missing persons expensively a missing child case? They should have called an team of people to the island to determine if the girl is missing or not. Before he got the letter, he saw a mother and daughters car crash with a truck and both the mother an daughter die which affects him through the movie. Edward decides to go to the Island himself to investigate the potential missing child. One of the women on the island mentions that the island is in Washington and Edward works in California and he says that he doesn't have jurisdiction in Washington state so he is breaking the law. He should of contacted police from Washington and got them to help out with the missing persons case. The natives of the island all act very suspicions and crazy and a lot of the scene are just of him asking questions and the natives being vague so nothing happens.  Sometimes Edward has a pointless dream about the truck that ran over the mother and daughter. Edward police investigation skills are horrible. It took him a day to ask the women who sent the letter where was the last place she saw her daughter.  Eventually the island people have a harvest festival and Edward thinking that the people are gonna sacrifice the daughter, beats up some people and frees the daughter but it is all a trap and Edward ended up being the person they were gonna sacrifice and burn him in a giant wicker man.

I felt this movie should have spent more time explaining and developing and less time trying to be creepy.

The main reason people remember the movie is the "not the bees" scene where the pour a bunch of CGI bees on Nicolas Cage's head and I like that seen along with the one where Nicolas Cage dresses up as a bear and punches someone.

It's not the worst movie I have seen but their are a lot better. I heard the original Wicker Man was better so you should see that instead. This movie reminded me a bit of Scooby Doo on Zombie Island which I think is a better movie

Never say never cause it's never 'never'
