The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly is an old western. Although it is an old western it is different than an old western. In the movie there are three men. Blondie plays the good in the movie, Angel eyes plays the bad in the movie and Tuco plays the ugly. These three men are nothing alike but all have the same goal in mind. They all want to find the treasure that is worth $200,000. The movie takes place in the western United States. The movie is over three hours long but interesting through the three hours.

The director Sergio Leone was most famous for his use of cinematography and skilled actors. The three main characters Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach all play very different rolls but work very well together. Blondie and Tuco start to work together but Blondie’s only objective is to turn Tuco in to the police for the money. Then when they get into town Blondie finds out that Tuco is wanted in over 10 countries and is getting ready to be hung. Then Blondie shoots the rope to set Tuco free and they get away. Then knowing Blondie’s character he leaves Tuco to set off on his own. Then all three characters come about having the same goal in mind. They all want the $200,000. Angel eye is known as a killer who will do anything to have the money all to himself.

FINDING NEMO journal # 2

For my second journal I did Finding Nemo. The reason why I choose to do Finding Nemo is because I love fish and I think this movie is really funny. The movie is about Nemo who gets taken by a scuba diver in the middle of the ocean. Marlin is Nemo’s dad, who tries to find his son all through the movie. Then Marlin finds a fish named Dory on his adventure to find Nemo again. Dory is an annoying fish who can’t remember what happened in the previous five minuets. In the end Dory ends up helping Marlin find his way to Nemo and saves his life on the journey there. Marlin and Dory manage to get to where Nemo is by telling the other fish in the sea about what happened. They run into a few issues with jelly fish and sharks but make it there by there teamwork. When they finally reach Nemo, Marlin is the happiest fish in the sea!

The directors of Finding Nemo were Andrew Stanton and Lee Unkrich. They did a very good job of making some of the character look more powerful than others. In the scenes with the Bruce, the shark that wants to eat Marlin low angle shots are used. They are used to make Bruce look big and powerful. This shot also makes Marlin and Dory appear to be weak and doomed. Also in the film there was a lot of nondiegetic sound being used. This was used when Marlin and Dory were swimming through the jelly fish field when Dory was hitting all the tops of the jelly fish and you could hear her getting stung. The sound became louder and you could tell she was getting hurt.

This movie was in the top 100 movies for a reason. It is a movie that was made for everyone which makes it enjoyable for children and there parents. Also the way the directors designed the film to have so many colors made it easy for little children to understand what was going on in the movie. The creators made each fish a different color along with all the coral and reefs. This movie was also in the top 100 because the story line of the movie is very enjoyable and is a good life lesson.

Among all the great aspects of this movie there were a few weaknesses. The first weakness is that the movie came off to be a little scary for little children. In the scene where Marlin and Dory go down to find the goggles was a very scary scene for little children. It was scary because the music got very loud and dark. Also this came off scary because the directors made it seem like there was a possibility that Marlin or Dory were going to die. No little kids want there favorite character to die. Also another negative aspect of this movie is film critics said the movie moved at a slow paste. The story line of the movie moved by very slow which made the movie boring at some times. I do not agree with this statement at all because I thought the movie was very interesting and kept me at the edge of my seat the whole movie. I give this movie an A+!

The last movie I saw in theaters was I Am Legend. I saw this movie on Christmas Eve with my little brother Jack, my dad and my three uncles. It is kind of family tradition. I thought the movie was really scary, but then again I was the only screaming in the whole theater. I thought it was a really good movie, but I also am the type of movie watcher who thinks just about any movie is good. The movie is about Will Smith and his dog that are the only living beans in the city of Manhattan. The reason why they are the only living ones left on the island is because a women thought she found the cure for caner but in the end it ended up killing over 6,000,000 people. Will spends day after day to try and find why these people died but it takes him his whole life to figure out why. Will and his dog finally come along humans who were still living with the disease. There are other living things on the island, but they don’t want to help Will and his dog. They want to kill them, but they can only come out when is sun is down. Will finds a way to capture one of these odd living things and does experiment after experiment trying to help it survive. Towards the end of the movie a woman and her son come to help Will and his dog. Will and his dog end up dying but they find a cure to fix the humans still infected with the disease and Will is remembered as a hero.

Critics say that I am Legend was a horrible movie. The reasons why this movie had such a bad review were because of the ending. In the end of the movie Will Smith found his butterfly to cure the people. But by curing the others he had to give his own life to do so. After he died the cure was then brought to a place of healthy people who survived the disease in the first place. Will was remembered as a hero from then on. Critics said that the ending was not well though up and that it let movie viewers hanging. The critics also say that the movie was taken from a few other movies but the movie didn’t give any credit to the movies before this one.

On the other side, critics said the movie was never boring. The movie was full of action from killing and helicopters blowing up. I agree with that statement and thought the movie was very good. I loved every minuet of the movie and I don’t think the movie gets enough credit.

After typing to do this my 5th time i give up.

This is from the movie Georgia Rule and the two girls are getting into a fight over the hottie in the town. Bewteen the two girls there is one cut to another cut. Also it is filmed in a close up shot to show how emotional it was. The two girls are fights and when Lindsay Lohan says "I will Fuck your boyfriends stupid" she wasnt serious she was just trying to get her point across.

my favorite movie

My favortie movie is the Curious George Movie.

The Curious George movie is about a little movie who was brought here by luck from africa. He follows around the man in the yellow hat. The man in the yellow hat when to Africa in search for a statue to save his uncles museum. His search was successful but some extra baggage came along to. Curious George follewed Ted around the city until Ted turned him into animal potrol. Once Ted gave up Curious George he finally realised how much he meant to him. Ted when all the way back to Africa in search of his monkey. He was succesful once again and the lived happily ever after until George went out on another misson into space...

Curious George is my favorite movie because he is so cute. He is the most loveable little baby moneky in the whole wide world. He doesnt talk but his cute little smiles get me everytime. He travels around the city looking for new adventure. I also love this movie because Jack Johnson made the album for the movie. Jack Johnson is one of my favorite musicians and he made the soundtrack for the whole movie. I fall asleep to his album everynight while i sleep with my baby Curious George. After seeing this movie my respect for the little monkey grew to a new level. I now have over 15 monkeys in my room that i sleep with every night. I love Georgie more than any other monkey and I know my kids will too.

Critics say...Its short and sweet. Its a family movie for everyone. Its for kids and adults. The fun little moneky has so much personalitly and wins everyones heart with his smiles. Curious Georges smiling face makes little toddlers make "cooing noises". The simple plot of the movie makes it fun for everyone to watch and keeps the movie flowing. The humor in the movie is not just for the little ones, but Curious makes everyone laugh even adults. Everyone loves the little monkey!
