DCRJ's MOVIE REVIEWS (June 1 to 10, 2010)

I just finished watching HBO's THE PACIFIC (2010) TV Mini-Series in 10-Parts in 11 DVDs. It tells the story of WWII in certain parts of the Pacific with true-to-life soldiers EUGENE SLEDGE (played by Joseph Mazello, the little kid from 'Jurassic Park'), ROBERT LECKIE and 'MANILA JOHN' BASILONE. Joseph Mazello's moving performance captured the emotions of troubled soldiers coming home from war. The series is a tribute to Gunnery Sargeant John Basilone whose real-life exploits would put Fernando Poe, Jr.'s unrealistic war scenes in the movies to shame. I am glad I have watched this. My only wish is that they should have included the Philippines in the setting.The DVD version is uncut and R-Rated unlike the tamed HBO shown on cable TV last March 2010. My ratings : 5 out of 5 Biscuits ! One of the best mini-series I have seen.

I just finished watching HOT TUB TIME MACHINE (2010). What happens when you sang Black Eyed Peas' Let's Get It Started in 1986 ? Ans: you'll be rich and famous. Four best buddies have been living boring lives in 2010 wound up back in time in the year 1986 via a hot tub. Silly script mixing silly gags with the space-time continuum saved by a likable casts including John Cusack. It's Back To The Future meets Groundhog Day. This movie gets connected with THE Time Travel movie with the appearance of Crispin Glover, the dorky father from Back To The Future ! My ratings: 4 out of 5 biscuits

I just finished watching REMEMBER ME (2010) starring Twilight's Robert Pattinson and Kitchie Nadal look-alike Emilie De Ravin. Strong performance by Pattinson which captured the essence of a James Dean-like execution with the slouched posture and mannerisms. Chris Cooper's authoritative/violent role gave me flashbacks of his other role with same trait from another movie 'American Beauty'. This is Robert Pattinson's method acting moment. My rating 4.5 out of 5 biscuits !
