Popcorn kernel film review rating guidelines:



1 kernel = not worth watching

5 kernels = a top rated film, exceptional value in aspects of acting, storyline, soundtrack, cinematography etc.

A 5 kernel rating has classic film potential.



Here are the kernels. Lets use them with discretion please.

Thank you again Chezzie...You're a doll:-4



"Harry Potter Movies"



I won't give a synopsis of the stories as I think most people know the general plot of the Potter stories....



Last night I finally watched Harry Potter's "Chambers of Secrets" and "Prisoner Of Azkaban" and have ordered all the rest of the series from Netflix. Brilliant, brilliant movies:guitarist



These are truly amazing and wonderful stories. I loved the scenery from England, New Zealand and Scotland. The actors were superb and endearing, and the animations were spectacular.



I'm giving both movies 5 of Nomies kernels...





Here's a link for those who don't know the story...

I recently saw 'Knowing' and 'Star Trek' the prequel at the cinema.

Knowing - I love Nicholas Cage. :-4 I loved the beginning of this film where a piece of paper, buried in a time capsule for 50 years, is discovered with the date of every recent major catastrophe on it. There were also some secret numbers. I have to say it was pretty easy to guess what the secret numbers meant and you could see the ending coming a mile away. The first half was brilliant, imo, and worth 5 popcorn kernels. The ending, I felt, was a big disapointment especially as they gave you important information and then forgot about it and acted as though the info didn't exist. That part was only worth an empty greasy popcorn box. So I'll take the mean average and give it 3




Star Trek.

I was dragged to this unwillingly and wasn't expecting much, but have to say I absolutely LOVED it. I know it got a lot of poor reviews but I really liked seeing the crew's early lives, the story of how they met and got on (or didn't!).

SPOILER :lips: (highlight to read)

I loved the way the 2 guys got incinerated and it was fascinating to see Spock with a love interest! Woohoo!

I was also intrigued by how closely all (bar one) of the cast resembled the original crew. It was very well thought out, I felt.

I really hope that, in the Star Wars tradition, they make more of these prequels.




Angels and Demons.

I have recently finished reading the book and loved it waaaaay more than The Da Vinci Code. I can't wait to go and see this at the cinema. Has anyone seen this yet? :-6

Thanks for your reviews Rap. I'm going to watch the 1st part of "John Adams" tomorrow and then finish the Potter movies before starting the last 2 "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. I've read allllll of the Tolkien books and adore him.



Then I'll add all the Star Trek movies that I haven't watched and squeeze "Angels and Demons" amongst them:wah:



This is my summer of movies that I've been trying to watch for the last 2 years:wah:.

You're welcome Kathy Ellen :-6

I LOVE the Harry Potter books and films and I love the Tolkien books too (apart from Silmarillion which I struggle with). I haven't seen the Lord of the Rings films but hubby and son have and they adore them. I'd really like to see Angels and Demons on the big screen as I think it would be so much better than seeing it for the first time on a small screen.

We've been to the cinema a few times now since it opened in out little town this summer. The problem is its SO expensive. The first time we went we paid for 4 seats, 4 drinks, 2 hotdogs, 1 box of popcorn and 1 bar of chocolate and it came to £55.00!!!

That's roughly $80.00 USD!!! Ridiculous!

I totally agree Rap,



WOW....that's an awful lot of money to spend for a movie and a bit of food.



That's one of reasons why I don't go to a movie theater anymore. More importantly though I hate when the theater is crowded and people talk during the film.



Geeze, a few years ago I would go with a friend to a matinee in the early afternoon, and the theater would be empty. A few people would come in and sit right in front of us in an empty theater:thinking::yh_rotfl



I think movies here cost about $11/e7.

I know and I agree. Years ago it was fun and cheap to go to the pictures. We've watched our new cinema being planned and built over the last 10 years! (It was a long time in the planning stage!) So we really wanted to go and see what it was like. We went to see Knowing because I really wanted to see it but it most definitely wasn't worth the price.

For Star Trek we took in our own drinks and munchies but it still cost over £30 (c. $50.00 USD!) It's a shame because it's a nice family treat but we certainly won't be going too often!

Kathy, your popcorn kernels look like either a cows head with a doo or a very cool and rebellious sheep.

Do I really have to pop my own popcorn then sift through the kernels photograph them, edit them etc. ?

I did find the kernels but they were just sitting there. They were neglected.

Im not copy righting the kernels per say Im copy righting the idea, the rating system.

I took old dusty kernels and brought them to Hollywood and made them all stars.

It's not often I see a movie that impresses me. It takes a well-considered plot, no loose ends and fine acting. The Man from Earth managed all three. No high-grossing stars but impressive performances, especially one from Tony Todd - I knew I'd seen him somewhere else and it turned out I had, in SG-1.

The writer, Jerome Bixby, deserves a pat on the back, he got a lot in there. He worked on the script on and off for thirty years while creating episodes for successive Star Trek series and turning out short stories. This one he finally revised as he was dying ten years ago. I'm glad it made it onto the screen. Everyone involved in getting it there should take pleasure from their achievement. Thank you, it's a well-told tale. It's tight, it's claustrophobic and it carries a philosophy worth discussing.

I want to say Ive seen this one but Im not recalling many details. I guess thats about all I have to add here. I probably could not have added anything since whatever Ive just said is pretty much useless and void of any meaningful contribution yet for some reason I felt compelled to say something, anything. Sometimes thats how it is with me.

For anyone who feels inclined to sit through three hours of emotional roller-coaster and end up a sobbing wreck clutched tight to whoever you persuaded to share your sofa I have the very thing, Three Smart Girls followed by its sequel, Three Smart Girls Grow Up. You need both, neither works without the other to get the full effect. The shock ending is one of the great moments of cinema, have at least one extra hankie left to cope with it.

I dunno spock.



The three Craig sisters, in Switzerland with their ten-years-divorced mother, run away to New York to prevent their father from marrying calculating socialite Donna Lyons. The overpowering vivacity of the Smart Girls (nominal ages 14-20) sweeps all before it, but a romantic complication between middle sister Kay and their accidental ally, Lord Michael Stuart, threatens shipwreck to their schemes... Written by Rod Crawford {puffinus@u.washington.edu}

Hoping to reunite their divorced parents, the three Craig sisters plot to prevent the marriage of their father to a gold-digger. Their scheme to match her up with a penniless Count backfire, but but a wealthy Australian saves the day.

The biggest rip off Horror Film that I remember seeing was "The Thing". You sit for one hour and 15 minutes of black and white film where some one opens the door to a cabin during a big storm and standing in the doorway is something looking like a giant carrott (James Arness of Gunsmoke fame). It was a 1951 flick.

If you like action films, special effects and US Army v bad guys fighting it out all over the planet, then this is a film you will like. Probably too violent for young ones, but for older teens on up it would be fine.

We just watched "A Haunting in Connecticut". We all really liked it but there is one part we can't figure out. For anyone that has seen it, when the guy came with the axe, the girl told the little girl to go play hide and seek. He made her and the boy get out of the house. When the house was burning, why was no mention made of the little girl?

I actually meant to find some info about it when we came home last night, but it went right out my head. I wanted to see what parts of the film were true etc as i had a feeling it wouldnt be much. Im surprised about the fire though as that was quite a big part of the story :rolleyes:

It's a movie where people get killed? I try hard to avoid that sort of plot. For one thing the makers shouldn't be encouraged and for another I'd only get upset with myself if I enjoyed it.

Hitting's distressing too, I don't like movies where people hit each other either.
