Awake

I really didn't have high hopes for this movie because of Hayden Christensen's dumb ass. For the record, I thought he butchered Anakin like no one else could in the SW prequels, but I'm sure I'm not alone in that opinion on this board. The only reason I got it was because I heard it had a good twist and of course, Jessica Alba. (was that redundant?)

Overall, I was able to get past some of the medical goofs the movie offered and enjoy it for it's suspense. There are a couple of tense scenes that were dramatically effective. The story was interesting and believable. Overall, it was a pretty good film for you typical formula suspense film. I'm sure the average movie-goer loved it.

My grade: B for decent acting, good twist or three and Jessica Alba's wet tshirt

Sorry no, movie was entertaining enough to say "I guess it was better then doing nothing" but nothing really worth mentioning in this flick. And yes I think Hayden Christiansen eats dick in pretty much every role.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of his at all. He badmouthed Star Wars. Even if he did bite the big one in the prequels, he wouldn't be on the map if not for Lucas, imho.

He needs to go away. Soon.

I heard Jumper also sucked, though the premise looked interesting.

I can't stand Christensen but I do have to admit he was decent in Shattered Glass. The fact that he tends to come off as a whiny pussy most of the time plays well into the role of a man watching his life and career fall to pieces.

You don't give your average movie-goer enough credit. This movie blew on all levels. I wouldn't recommend it under any circumstances other than ....being locked alone in a room with a tv, dvd player and nothing else to watch than this shitty movie.

Jessica Alba sure has picked some winners lately. She's turning into Lindsay Lohan with her craptastic movie parts.

When playing the invisible woman in Fantastic Four is the best you can do in a leading role?

Maybe she needs to return to smaller parts (i.e. Sin City.)

She's just eye candy; can't always expect much talent to go with that, Allu.

I have a very low bar for actresses if they kick some major ass around in the movie as well as be the eye-candy, unfortunately Jessica doesn't do that. I did love her in Sin City though, but she's definitely went downhill in the movie-making dept since then.
