The Hole (2009)
A fabulous family horror!
I saw the poster of this film and I was intrigued. It looked pretty good, so I saw the trailer and immediately booked a ticket. And I have to say, money well spent! The story is about two brothers, Dane and Lucas, who move to Bensonville with their mother, who works at the hospital. Dan falls for Julie, the girl nest door, and whilst exploring their new house, Dane, Lucas and Julie find a seemingly bottomless hole in the basement. They are bewildered, but assume it was dug by the previous owner of the house, Creepy Carl. However, the three soon experience creepy and possibly supernatural events, all of which are linked to the thing they fear the most. But the thing that scares them most is where these things came from. With only one explanation, the trio soon discover that they must kill the darkness before it kills them.
Don't be put off by it's 12A rating, this is a brilliant and well made horror, with a few bloody moments for the older viewers to enjoy. This is a film for all ages to enjoy, and one that will give you chills.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
Nothing new, but still okay
Let's not deny that the original Nightmare On Elm Street is much better than this remake, but for horror fans who haven't seen the original may find this to their liking.
Okay, let's start with the pros: the new cast is very good (I particularly enjoyed Katie Cassidy's performance), the atmosphere is darker and less comical (which I like in a horror) than the original, we know more of Freddy's background, plenty of gore and shocks, a fabulous new Freddy, great effects, and it mirrors the original whilst adding something new. Now things like that are what I look for in a good horror, and this provides just that.
Now for the cons: less character development (which is very unfortunate, and Nancy in particular just feels like an empty shell and seems to just jump into the story, and her lack of development and appeal makes the audience not care if she lives or dies), not the best opening (despite some good acting, the scene just felt weak), seems to focus more on Freddy and death than the victims (therefore, you get the same vibe from the Nancy thing), not enough suspense, the characters are good, but still get on your nerves, too predictable (even for those who are completely new to the franchise), Freddy talks too much, and bad music to end on. I'm not giving any spoilers, but when the credits roll, the music just doesn't fit. It's got the right theme (Dreaming), but the tune and lyrics just takes away the scary feel from the film.
To sum it up, this film is simply okay. If you like a creepy villain with a big mouth who kills off unsuspecting teenagers while they sleep, you'll enjoy it. But if you like the classic 80's movies with the same thing (minus the excessive talking), go for the original. If you like genuinely scary slasher movies, go for Scream or The Shining.
Family Guy (1999)
It used to be funny. But now?
Let's not deny it, Family Guy was once a huge hit. I would watch every episode and buy all the box sets, but recently it's been lagging in both storyline and character development, and not to mention the fun factor.
The story is about the Griffin family, Peter is the overweight, drunk and retarded dad who gets into all kinds of crazy get ups, like his hilarious plastic surgery addiction, and getting America jumping into song and dance in the infamous Shipoopi number. He is married to the extremely attractive and feisty redhead Lois, who comes from a very wealthy family. She is a loving mother, but is also a dynamite in the bedroom. They have three children, socially rejected and unattractive Meg, Chris, the preteen Peter, and violently evil baby Stewie, who craves world domination and conducts bizarre schemes to kill his mother. And last is Brian, their talking pet dog, who drinks, smokes and does drugs, whilst maintaining unsuccessful relationships with various women and tries fruitlessly to complete his novel.
Sounds pretty good, right? Dubbed by many as the 'adult Simpsons' and I happily agreed. But the arrival of season six brought the well known 'Stewie Kills Lois/Lois Kills Stewie' two part episode which saw the downfall of the once great evil Stewie. That annoyed me, but I still enjoyed the series, but after another season I became bored with it. What started as a great, hilarious cartoon about a dysfunctional family suddenly turned into a violent South Park remake, complete with swearing and gore.
I still like some of the episodes such as 'I Dream Of Jesus' and 'Road To The North Pole', but the characters have viciously transformed way too much. Peter is now less comic drunk and more violent drunk, where he beats everyone up and swears until he turns blue. Lois is now, well, insane. Still full of the sex jokes and raging libido, but it's become rather tasteless and annoying. Meg is also violent and tries to become the boss of the family with gross outcomes, but is always shoved back down the social ladder, where she continues to cut herself and throw up. I preferred her as the sweet girl who gets on with her family, despite all the crap she gets. Chris is still the preteen Peter, and I just don't like it. Stewie, like I said, has shed his evil persona and become a normal baby, besides all the high tech gadgets he possesses, although he occasionally finds himself aiming a gun at Lois. Now Brian? I never liked him much, but now I loath him. He drives me nuts with his selfish personality and urge to legalise drugs, whilst every so often tries to rape Lois, who he has a deep unrequited love for. Oh, and he falls in love every other episode, but it never works out.
Yes, it sounds like I hate Family Guy now, but I don't. It still produces some funny episodes and memorable themes, but all in all, I don't like the characters or the over use of blood and swearing. The new HD isn't doing it for me either, I preferred the previous animations.
Some will love it, some will hate it, it all depends on what you like. I still watch the episodes in hope that it will restore the greatness it once had, but for now? Fail.
The Nine Lives of Chloe King (2011)
Too much too soon
In short, the show is about average teenage girl Chloe King who finds out that she has the powers and abilities of a cat. Sounds okay, right? Well, call me critical, but I base the show on the pilot, which is crucial to drawing in viewers. My point being, too much happened.
It starts out rather cliché, with Chloe being pushed off a tower and seemingly dying, then the screen switches to a few days earlier. Chloe has about ten minutes of normal life (excluding having perfect aim, getting mugged and discovering retractable claws), when she is stalked by some assassin (didn't catch the name) who has been sent to kill Chloe. The problem is, she has nine lives. Now, I'm not taking sides, but wouldn't it make so much more sense if the dude kidnapped Chloe and shot her nine times? You know, instead of throwing her off buildings and making a huge scene.
Then there's this whole thing about a Uniter (?) who is supposed to protect other cat people who are called Mai (the line 'not entirely god, not entirely human' made me cringe). And Chloe is just way too accepting of her powers. She has claws and can suddenly do back flips over buildings and she's like 'yeah, whatever'. Then she goes to save someone and casually shows her claws and I was so confused as to what was going on.
Two more Mai go to protect Chloe only to find out about the whole Uniter business, and in short: everyone goes home happy. Although this one guy who Chloe kissed ended up dying and the villain is never happy so yeah.
My point being, it just seemed like the producers were trying to cram several episodes worth of entertainment into half an hour. There wasn't much explanation as to what was going on and I didn't follow it at all. More of Chloe's back story and personal life should have been revealed before her Mai life being discovered.
Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a terrible show, just very rushed, like they didn't want to wait to get into the story. I very much doubt I will ever watch it again, and the whole thing seemed like a Catwoman meets Heroes spin off.
On the plus side, even though the idea has been done to death, it was fairly well done and the casting was okay, but Skyler Samuels as the lead role didn't quite do it for me. She's a good actress, but her methods were a little annoying.
I'm sure not many people will agree with me and I can understand why. This is a love it or hate it show and unfortunately, I can't say I like it. If I ever end up watching another episode it may get better and hook me in, but for now I don't see that happening.
So, if you like Catwoman and teenage dramas, then go for it. If you like more original ideas and a thicker and more gripping plot, then steer clear of this one.
X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)
Not the best but still very good
When I heard about this movie I was excited and so was my brother, being fans of the previous X Men films as well as the comics we were really looking forward to the films and if this was anything like the first two we wouldn't be disappointed! It starts out pretty good, with a younger Charles Xavier and Magneto going to see a pre teen Jean Grey and offer her a place at their school. Then to a young Angel chopping off his wings (NOTE - I'm not giving away any major plot points but there will be a few character spoilers).
The plot was fun but a little thin. I love the arrival of new mutants like Angel and Kitty Pryde, but I honestly didn't care for Kitty and Bobby's relationship. The whole thing was stale and didn't fit, Bobby and Rogue are perfect for each other.
Moving on, the twist of Jean (well, Phoenix) being on Magneto's side came as a shock. It didn't completely go with the whole thing and I preferred her on the good side. Oh, and the first thing she does when she comes back added tension but kinda killed the film for me.
The actors and actresses did a fine job in reprising their roles, but Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde felt like a serious case of miscasting. Kitty is my favourite X Men but Page didn't live up to expectations.
Rogue also seemed a little underdeveloped and didn't get enough screen time. She spends most of the time upset about Bobby and Kitty and the rest of it considering getting the 'cure'. Anna Paquin still did a wonderful of playing Rogue, even if the writers reduced her to more of a whiny teenager than her true sassy, kick ass self.
The film is action packed and I love it but some will disagree. The whole film in general wasn't as good as the previous two installments but still impressed me.
All in all, this is a love it or hate it film, if you loved the first two then you will probably enjoy this, although some will hate it. If you want an action superhero film to watch with your friends, then you may like this, although you'll have to see the first two to avoid any plot confusion. If not then go for Spiderman or something instead.
The Last Airbender (2010)
Fabulous effects, terrible storyline
Seeing the trailer I was thrilled to see that the film was coming out and waited eagerly for the release. As a kid I was a huge fan of the animated series which was what drew my attention to the film, but oh my god!! Within the first five minutes I was bored out of my mind. I kept telling myself "It's gonna get better" but oh was I wrong..
So here's the story: The world is split into five categories, the Waterbenders, Firebenders, Earthbenders, Airbenders and just normal people. The benders manipulate (or 'bend') individual elements, but there is one legendary being, the Avatar, who can bend all the elements. The Firebenders are threatened because they want all the power but can't if the Avatar is around (they can't kill him because he'll just be reborn somewhere else in the world) so they plan to get rid of him anyway. Apparently he will be born to the Airbenders, so they kill all the Airbenders, as the title implies. But oh! The Avatar (Aang) had run away earlier on and gotten frozen in ice. He stays there for 1000 years (or 100 I didn't really pay attention) and is found by Waterbender Katara and her warrior brother Sokka who take him back to their village. Oh, and the Firebenders are getting rid of all the other benders so they will be all powerful, and Katara is living secretly in her village, being (ironically) the last Waterbender. Aang is found out so he, Katara and Sokka run away where they are caught by some Firebenders and taken to the Earthbender camp. A moderate and embarrassingly choreographed fight breaks out and the three get away. After that I really just phased out, the Firebender chief's son is supposed to kill Aang to gain back the respect of his family and such (no idea what he did) but I don't think he wants to. Then they go to some kind of Waterbender camp where Sokka and the water queen girl (Princess Yue?) get together but the Firebenders call war and a battle breaks out. They kill some spirit fish and the princess kills herself to give everyone power, but Aang makes a big wave that scares all the Firebenders away. That's pretty much it.
The choreography when they're all 'bending' stiff is embarrassing. Apparently they have to do some kind of bizarre dance to do that kind of stuff. Aang also has this big thing which I have forgotten what it's called (like that big dragon thing from the Never Ending Story?) but it's almost never in it so that was a bummer.
It had some pretty cool special effects, but that doesn't make up for the horrific plot and weak cast. I think Nicola Peltz and Jackson Rathbone were decently placed, but the kid who plays Aang just ruined it.
So, if you liked the animated series, then DON'T watch this. If you don't like the animated series then DON'T watch it. If you like bad movies then - you know what? You get where this is going. Just don't watch this film for the life in you. I gave it two stars because I at least liked the effects and Peltz and Rathbone's performances. Other than that? Complete fail.
A very cute family film!
I love all of Disney's films, but Bolt is one that stands out from the rest. Upon seeing the trailer I was eager to see the film and I wasn't disappointed!
Bolt and his owner Penny are the stars of a popular TV show entitled 'Bolt', which is about a dog who gained incredible powers in order to protect his master. But there's one thing: the director of the show goes to great lengths in order to convince Bolt everything is real because 'If the dog believes it, the audience believes it'. Because of this, Bolt can't have a normal life and spend quality time with Penny, who is tired of her life and the fact that she isn't allowed to bring Bolt home after filming. Ratings for the show are failing as every storyline is the same and ends with Bolt saving Penny from the evil Dr Calico. To save the show from being cancelled, the director created a cliffhanger ending with Penny being kidnapped. Bolt is horrified and escapes his trailer to find Penny, but in the struggle, he ends up on the streets alone. Still believing Penny is in danger, he is determined to get back and seeks the help of streetwise kitty Mittens and Bolt's biggest fan, the hyperactive hamster Rhino. But as time goes on, Mittens makes Bolt realise he has been living in a fantasy world and shows him how to be a 'real' dog.
Personally, I love it. This is one of Disney's greatest films and I can watch it again and again without getting bored. I adore Rhino and if you do too, then you will love the animated short 'Rhino'.
I think Miley Cyrus as Penny was a serious case of miscasting, but she isn't in most of the film so I can forgive and forget.
If you're looking for a film to watch with the family, something to watch alone or to give to the little ones, then Bolt is a sure thing. The entire film is very feel good and you will love the perfectly fitting soundtrack.
Not brilliant, but not terrible
I'll admit, this is a poor excuse for a horror film, but it still isn't completely awful. Loads of people will be disappointed with this film, and so I seriously hope you know what you're in for.
17 year old Molly was stabbed by her mother who is now in a mental hospital. Molly lives with her dad and attends a new school, but strange things start to happen to her.
Yes, sounds cliché, and it is, but there are some decent moments in it. The problem with this film is it opens with a fairly impressive scene, but the tension just fails after that and the whole thing goes downhill.
Normally, I wouldn't have watched this film. The only reason I did was because of Haley Bennett as the lead role. Yes, that is the ONLY reason. She has a wonderful horror movie scream and does a good job of acting scared, and she is in fact the highlight of the movie. The other characters aren't fleshed out enough and the way they pop into Molly's life with different reasons gets a little confusing.
This film didn't have a huge budget and so I can forgive the lack of gore and special effects which I was expecting, but the script is rather weak and the plot is pretty thin so the supposed twist ending is predictable. Oh, and the ending scene will confuse some and outrage others, depending on if you understand it. Long story short, it isn't very good.
Despite all the negative things, some people will enjoy this film. I am one of those people, I could definitely watch it again and don't regret buying it. Not one of my favourites, but if you're looking for a cheesy horror movie to bitch about, then it fits the bill. If you want a true horror with lots of blood and screams and special effects, then this isn't even close to what you're looking for.
All in all, I liked this film enough to buy it and watch again. I'm giving it six stars because although it severely lacks the shock factor to make it a horror, it still qualifies as one of those bad movies you watch on Saturday night. Just remember that you may still be very disappointed, so lower your expectations.
Final Destination 5 (2011)
Now THIS is what I'd expect
Let's be honest, Final Destination 4 sucked. I heard it was the last in the FD film series and I was very disappointed it went out like that. When it was announced there was going to be a sequel I was thrilled, I like the Final Destination films and was anxious to see what gruesome deaths awaited.
Now, we all know the story, someone has a premonition of a horrific accident, they manage to save a handful of people, but Death has been cheated and is stalking the survivors, killing them off one by one in creative and gruesome ways.
Personally, I wanted the accident to be set in a water park, but a bridge collapse still holds up the suspense. Of course, it's one of those films where you cringe at their idiotic actions and say 'I would have done this and that' and yes, I did that. Nevertheless, FD5 delivers a brilliant sequel to the dying franchise.
The death scenes are wonderful, if not a bit far fetched (like a doctor who really leave a patient alone strapped to a table with a laser in their eye) and I'll admit there are some clichés in there too, but of course, FD is all about bending the rules of physics.
I still think the original is the best, the second very good, the third fine, and the fourth just awful, but this one is fantastic and could almost rival the first if we didn't already know the whole story. Oh yeah, and I like the new twist in the rules, that a survivor can kill someone else to take their place and hence force have new life.
I would have given the film ten stars if the death scenes were a little more realistic. Yes, I know Death is doing it, but it's the realism that makes people scared. The writers should keep that in mind if FD6 is ever made. Also, despite the new rule it all felt rather cliché and predictable, maybe because of the previous films, or maybe because it simply a horror film. What would make the films more interesting is if it was explained where the premonitions are coming from. Beyond the grave? Are these people psychic? What's the deal? Don't get me wrong, I'm not annoyed by it, I just think it would be good if the story was explored a little more.
Overall, if you've seen and liked the previous films, I see no reason not to recommend this one. If you're a horror fan, you might enjoy this as a guilty pleasure. If you like comedy with your horror, then I'd say this isn't for you. FD5 gets a few dark laughs now and then, depending on your sense of humour, but all in all, it's not like Scream.
Heavy Rain (2010)
How far will you go for someone you love?
This isn't a game, it's an interactive movie. I enjoy playing video games in my free time, but I have never found one that I have really gotten into. But 2010 brought Heavy Rain, a fantastic masterpiece from Quantic Dream! The psychological journey hits you deep with a mixture of violence, emotion and passion.
The story follows starts with Ethan Mars, who's oldest son is hit and killed by a car one day at the mall Two years later, he has a miserable life, carrying the guilt of his son's death, divorced from his wife and distant from his remaining son, Shaun. But when Shaun is kidnapped by the mysterious Origami Killer, Ethan embarks on a dangerous journey and is forced to partake in five brutal trials in order to gain letters to a hangman that will reveal Shaun's location. But time is short, and Ethan has only four days to find Shaun alive.
As time goes on, Ethan meets Madison Paige, an insomniac photojournalist who crosses paths with the wounded Ethan after the first trial. She helps him recover and soon finds herself conducting her own investigation to find the Origami Killer.
Also on the case is FBI Profiler Norman Jayden, sent in from Washington to help with the Origami Killer case. Teamed up with the aggressive Liutenant Carter Blake and armed with his awesome ARI sunglasses, Jayden slowly becomes obsessed with the investigation, as well as fighting his own personal battle with his addiction to Triptocaine, which could ultimately lead to his death if not controlled.
And last, but not least is Private Detective Scott Shelby, hired by the families of the victims of the Origami Killer. His main suspect his Gordi Kramer, the playboy son of millionaire business man Charles Kramer. Aiding him in his investigation is Lauren Winter, whose son was a recent victim of the Origami Killer.
The four of them are suddenly thrown into the twisted world of the Origami Killer, each battling for their lives against criminals, hit men, and finally, the Origami Killer himself.
Who will survive? You decide..
Lots of fun!
I loved Heavy Rain so much, and I was thrilled when Quantic Dream announced the first DLC. I downloaded it immediately and I have to say, it is a fabulous addition! Ther story takes place several years before Heavy Rain, and Madison Paige is on her way to Leland White's house, suspecting he is the Origami Killer. Leland isn't home, so Madison decides to sneak in and look around. The house is filled with stiffed animals due to Leland's job as a taxidermist, which disturbs Madison, but that is the least of her worries when she finds the evidence of Leland's gruesome hobby. She tries to leave, but at that moment, Leland arrives home. Trapped, Madison must fight for her life against the ruthless Leland White.
I played this game at least ten times in the day I got it and many times since, and I am still not bored of it. I was surprised to see the rating for it against Heavy Rain's, but like Heavy Rain, this is a love it or hate it game.
If you liked Heavy Rain, go for it! If you didn't, then you still might enjoy it.
Mean Girls (2004)
For years the big screen has been plagued with painfully unrealistic high school 'dramas' made up of show tunes and the bitch who can't be a bitch. But 2004 brought Mean Girls, which is without a doubt one of the BEST high school movies out there.
It all starts with Cady Heron, who has spent the last ten years in Africa with her zoologist parents. But when her mom gets off her tenure, they move to the city. For the first time, Cady enters high school and it is clear that only the strong survive. After her disastrous first day, she is reluctant to go back, but a silver lining comes in the form of Janis Ian (Lizzy Caplan) and the hilarious Damien (Daniel Franzese), who show her how it all works: the school is divided into cliqués, overall ruled by the Plastics, a.k.a Teen Royalty. They warn Cady to stay away from the Queen Bee, Regina George (Rachel McAdams), but the Plastics take an immediate liking to her and invite her to join their cliqué. Janis, who holds a grudge against Regina, urges Cady to do it so she can bring down Little Miss Perfect once and for all. But as Cady spends more and more time with the Plastics and basks in the glow of her newfound popularity, the Africa raised nice girl is soon transformed into what can only be: Regina George.
All in all, this is a fantastic movie that will impress both girls and guys. Fairly family friendly, but not for the young ones, this is the perfect teen movie that combines the mixture of a realistic story about a teenager lost in the midst of 'Girl World', whilst at all times adding a flare of humour around every corner.
This is definitely one of both Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams' finest roles, but Daniel Franzese as the flamboyant Damien is the cherry on the top of a wonderful film. He will have you laughing from beginning to end, especially in my personal favourite 'Candy Cane' scene (You go, Glenn Cocco!).
Young or old, don't pass up the chance to see this film, if it's a night in with the girls or simply something to kick back to and enjoy, you will not regret it. Just don't watch the sequel.
There were two reasons I went to see this film: my friends all wanted to see it and I liked Robert Pattinson in Harry Potter. I hated every moment of this film, and the reason I didn't leave? I made the grave mistake of ordering skittles to eat, and before hand I had been to Pizza Hut for the all you can eat meal deal. I got stuck in the chair and couldn't squeeze out of it for the life in me. I tried to kill myself by deliberately shoving skittles up my nose and down my throat, but a few weeks earlier I had my friends take a CPR class and were able to help me. It took thirteen Odeon staff and a small crane to break off the chair, which I was stuck with for six months whilst I did aerobics and threw up everyday at 6am try ease the chair off. Still now, a few weeks later, I am left with the deep purple bruises left behind. I cannot express my humiliation of walking home from the Odeon wearing the chair, as people took pictures which immediately made their way onto Facebook. By the time the chair had come off, the DVD was out. I couldn't bring myself to think about it, and so put all my anger and embarrassment into a strongly worded letter to Tony Blair. He never replied. The five point five rating on this film is unacceptable, and I would never have made it in the first place. Stephanie Meyer is the female Hitler in literature. Kill her immediately. Which is my plan as I am slowly poisoning her water supply in hopes she will die a painful death. As you can tell I didn't care for this film.
All of the Harry Potter films have been phenomenal, but this one stands out. Part 1 has been noted to lack action, but Part 2 is a masterpiece! Everyone knows the story, Harry, Ron and Hermione are hunting for the last Horcruxes, which are Voldemort's secret to immortality, and everything ends with the final, epic battle between Harry and Voldemort. The film follows the book brilliantly, but I have to admit the beginning felt a little rushed. Many fans, including myself, expressed disappointment in the fact that many scenes are missing, such as Dumbledore's back story and Fred Weasley's death, which makes many parts of the film confusing for people who haven't read the books, but nevertheless, Harry Potter goes out with a bang. I loved the final duel between Harry and Voldemort, which doesn't happen in the book, and was completely action packed and utterly brilliant. Ron and Hermione's kiss was long awaited and doesn't disappoint, although keeping it the same as in the book would probably have been better. The scene in the Great Hall where Harry, Ron and Hermione mourn Fred, Lupin and Tonk's deaths is extremely emotional, but as I said, showing Fred's death would have been better, partcially as those who haven't read the book may be confused as to which Weasley died. His death in the book is such a powerful moment between the Weasley's, mainly Percy, who in past films abandoned his family, and the whole moment just brings them all together. The scene still brought tears to my eyes as both Fred and George are my favourite HP characters. Another of my favourite scenes is when Harry has the Resurrection Stone and is reunited with his parents, Sirius and Lupin. Although I have to say, the best moment in the entire film was Snape's memories. Alan Rickman seriously deserves an Oscar for his performance! The scene really pulls things together, revealing Snape's past and many other things. Oh, and the epilogue scene was very good. Personally, I would have liked it to be longer and feature more of the moments in the book, such as formal introductions to Harry and Ginny's and Ron and Hermione's children. I would have also have loved to see Teddy Lupin, who I was looking forward to seeing, as well as James running up to his family and shouting out that Teddy and Victoire were kissing. When Harry hugged his youngest son, Albus I cried a little inside. Arthur Bowen is the perfect choice for Albus Potter, and I adore the scene between them. That ending makes me wish that JK Rowling writes another HP book, this time about Albus's first year at Hogwarts. The epilogue is another of my favourite scenes, and I love the fact that they kept the original music from the Philosopher's Stone as well. When watching that scene I held onto my friend and we both cried. Overall, the best possible way to end the Harry Potter films. That was an incredible decade and will never be forgotten. Thank you JK for sharing this with the world! xx
Could be better, not the best way to end a trilogy.
When I heard that Family Guy was parodying Star Wars, I was excited. Family Guy has been one of my favourite shows for several years, and I have always enjoyed the Star Wars films, so it felt like a good mix. I loved Blue Harvest as it was really funny and I very much enjoyed the character casting. The recurring gags were brilliant, as well as being able to keep the storyline as well as adding in regular Family Guy jokes. Something, Something, Something Dark Side wasn't as good as the first, although it was still enjoyable. At times it felt like they were trying to cram in too many Family Guy jokes, which was a bit of a turn off for me. But overall I liked it. It's A Trap was less memorable than the other two. Family Guy fans will like it, but the whole thing just felt a little low on steam. The whole thing in general was fine, but relied too heavily on swearing and cartoon violence, which I didn't enjoy. Having Rush Limbaugh as the Rancor made no sense to me. Personally I would have switched him with James Woods, which would have been a more obvious joke. No, James Woods isn't in it, which was a shame as he could have been the Rancor or Darth Sidious instead of Carter Pewterschmit. Ironically, while the previous one had too many Family Guy jokes, this one lacks them severely. The most memorable being the Conway Twitty cutaway. I was rather disappointed they didn't inject a Surfin' Bird gag, which could have occurred when Peter stepped on the stereo behind the Storm Trooper, then they could have started dancing to it. Also, it failed to feature my favourite character: Death. In the first one, he could have played the Jawa instead of Mort Goldman. Although I was surprised to have them crossover Roger and Klaus from American Dad, which I have to say, made me laugh. Having Rallo from the Cleveland Show did nothing for me though. I couldn't help feeling that Joe was miscast as Jabba. It just didn't feel right. Personally, I think Joe should have been R2-D2, solely because there could have been some handicap jokes in it. Oh, and the fact that Chris broke Stewie's neck at the end just ruined it. The constant sex jokes made by Peter were very annoying, and the nodding sequence went on just a bit too long and killed the humour. Don't get me wrong, there were some good moments in it, such as Klaus and Roger's cameos, and Lois looking super hot in Princess Leia's slave outfit. Other than that I have to say this was by far the weakest of the trilogy, and it felt more like South Park than Family Guy. Overall, if you like the previous two, I see no reason why you shouldn't give this a go. If you are neither a Family Guy or Star Wars fan, this isn't for you.
