Shout-out to King Kong’s breath

Movie picks from Temecula

Wrestling with T-Rexes!
Wrestling with T-Rexes!

High School Musical (2006): Vanessa Hudgens as Gabriella is an undeniable phenomenon. As are her eyes and smile. Blonde Ashley Tisdale likes to wag her tail. Her brother is a great dancer. The supporting cast gives 110%. Spectacular lighting. Fantastic choreography.

Hostel (2005): The women are hotter when dressed. Immature boys. Pants-dropping sauna scene. Survivor, Jay Hernandez, is a great lead hero. The murderers are fragmented and deranged yet still personable, which is highly terrifying. Torturous choreography.

King Kong (2005): Dynamite sub woofer and speakers radiate King Kong’s foot-steps, breath, and special fX. Naomi Watts is perfect; Adrian Brody, Jack Black and the supporting actors also. Empire State building is splendid, and wrestling with T-Rexes!

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang (2005): The alacrity of Robert Downey Jr.’s narration and foxy spouse Harmony (Michelle Monaghan) set the mood. Val Kilmer is infectious. A dry hype, if you will? Mysterious villains I genuinely enjoy; educational portrayal of L.A.

Legends of the Fall (1994): A masterpiece. Every scene with Brad Pitt is poignant and viable. Man, what an actor. “Samuel” and Aidan Quinn do outstanding work, as well as the ranch inhabitants! The marriage to “Lizzie” is a nice surprise, as is the role of Congress. Suzanna is gorgeous. Score flourishes.

Melinda & Melinda (2004): Woody Allen remake of Louis Malle’s My Dinner with André (1981). Pretentious. I fall for Radha Mitchell (Melinda). Amanda Peet has innate talent. Will Ferrell is a cool cat. Chiwetel Ejiofor is off-the-chart.

Munich (2005): Spielberg directs the real events that arise between these murders. Phenomenal lighting. Over-achiever Eric Bana hits his mark. Very deep. Extreme murder scenes. Props to friend, Maher Tadros, the villainous flannel cowboy.

My Summer of Love (2004): Redhead & brunette (Natalie Press & Emily Blunt) are young & yet ripe which may explain their need to be intimate with each other. Born-again Christian (Paddy Considine) is evil. Sad parenting. Surprising end.

Nacho Libre (2006): Jack Black brings fervor to Nacho Libre. All he does is fart. Fat yet brilliant. His sidekick (Hecter Jimenez) is serene. Little fat kid is A+. Ramses fight against Libre is a surprise. Best is, “Big Kiss. Big Hug. Big Hug. Little Kiss.”

Raisin in the Sun (1961): Sidney Poitier, Walter Lee, (like Muhammad Ali) refers to himself as a giant and the others as ants. I like how he claps when he talks, or dances; or stands up on the table to perform if intoxicated. Mom and his wife (Ruby Dee) are wonderful. I fall in love with the story on poverty; about the “tookers” & the “taken.”

Shop-girl (2005): Slow plot. Claire Danes is on cue, as is Jason Schwartzman. You can’t ask for more. Steve Martin stands alone and I think he wants to. His revealing eyes speak for his self. Violin master song is annoying. Fascinating end.

Step Up (2006): Channing Tatum has an arsenal of dance moves. The signature move: when he whirls his arm from back to front. He drags his pants without shame. It is a joy to watch pro Jenna Dewan. The height difference plays over well and her relationship with mom. Unnecessary death! Best is on the roof, beside the ocean, is my favorite. Lengthy.

Swept Away (2002): Amber (Madonna) mesmerizes. C’mon, who would expect such a grand, theatrical performance with this kind of film cover, reviews & title? High-brow dialogue. Amorous chemistry. Notable twist. Lost $9 million at box office.

Talladega Nights (2006): Best is Peppy Lepiou mocks, “Ricky Booby,” with Adrianno Giannini. Will Ferrell covers every cue, bending backwards in elasticity. John C. Reilly is obsessed so the viewer feels obssessed (“Shake ‘n’ bake”)! Actresses add sex appeal. Interesting family dynamic; especially father (Gary Cole)!

Walking Tall (2004): The Rock is innocent, bouncy and composed as he “cleans house.” Villain & Johnny Knoxville are perfect. Ashley Scott is necessary as there lacks estrogen.

View From The Top (2003): Gwyneth Paltrow is God’s great design. Every scene she exhibits a new promiscuous outfit. Small, chunky butt. I marvel how it revolves around a stewardess. A+ cast: Rob Lowe, Christina Applegate, Mark Ruffalo, and Mike Myers.

You, Me & Dupree (2006): Kate Hudson is sexy yet boyish. Her role is effortless. Matt Dillon goes through changes; holds my attention. Dupree (Owen Wilson) stuns every chance he has to express himself. A super-star I relate with. I hate Michael Douglas.
