Re: Movies Seen in 2011

Ninja Cheerleaders: I've been wanting to see this for a few years now and I finally got the chance this week. The movie should have been called Ninja Strippers, because the three ladies were strippers preparing for a stripping contest while having to deal with rescuing their sensei (George Takei) who was kidnapped. How was the movie? It was pretty bad. It had the writing and production values of the dialog portions of a porn movie, you know, the parts where there's no sex and they're trying to set up a plot with a bit of banter. Takei was decent enough though and Ginny Weirick is very easy on the eyes. From the DVD "making of" documentary, it seems as if all involved had a good time making this, but in the end, it just didn't have the lustre of a well made motion picture.

Primer: Two guys are working on an invention in their garage and accidentally realize that what they made can do something quite extraordinary. Great concept, but it's often hard to follow. It's an independent film that was made on a budget of $7000. but looks quite professional for what it is. Check it out if you're into indie scifi.

Doubt: A priest is suspected of sexual impropriety with a minor. Not an exciting story, but the movie is made excellent by the performances of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. Those three alone are the movie. It's rare to see something like that. You could have put all three of them on a blank stage with no sets or props and it would have been gripping.
