Patton (1970)

The battle scenes were not that fun to watch. An overall boring movie. Though what really made up for that, is the authenticity of the movie. It felt as if you were watching actual footage, that is how good George C. Scott and all the actors around him were. The music went pretty well with the movie. A pretty fair take on one of the greatest generals of our time, General George S. Patton.

7.4/10.0

An average Hitchcock movie does exist!

Saboteur (1942)

A solid Hitch movie. It is a little bit formulaic for him though. It reminded me of his other movie 'The 39 Steps' a bunch. This was a major improvement though. The sound was better. Full of lovable characters as always. It's just not up to standards with what you expect from the master of suspense.

7.7/10.0

One of those movies to make people feel better about the war that they were going through at the time.

Empire of the Sun (1987)

Christian Bale as a kid is so annoying. John Malkovich was the best part of this movie. It was an interesting idea for a movie, and Spielberg is usually good at executing those good ideas, but this one fell short. Bale's breakthrough role annoyed me so much that it ruined the entire movie. It was interesting seeing Ben Stiller at such a young age.

7.6/10.0

The Simpsons Movie (2007)

Wow, this movie was just a rehash of all the old jokes. They just took every joke they ever told, and told it again. I thought the movie would be spectacular, I thought that was why their recent episodes have been horrible, because they were spending time with this movie. No, they have just lost it, ever since Conan O'Brien left the show. They even pulled a gag that South Park already used. I liked the rock and hard place joke, the Grand Theft Walrus joke, and there were a few other moments that were good. Maybe it was the drugs I was on while watching the movie. The major highlight of the movie is that the EPA were the bad guys.

7.0/10.0

The Philadelphia Story (1940)

James Stewart and Katharine Hepburn were so good, that they made this bore fest interesting enough to watch. Cary Grant still hasn't proven himself though. The first half of the movie he seemed to be delivering the lines as if from memory, rather then acting and living them. That was really annoying. It seemed to improve about half way through the movie though. Boring plot, that probably started the cliches that are used in it.

6.9/10.0

What's the South Park connection in The Simpsons? I didn't get it.
