Karry Best movie of this year hands down!
Beanbioca As Good As It Gets
Deanna There are moments in this movie where the great movie it could've been peek out... They're fleeting, here, but they're worth savoring, and they happen often enough to make it worth your while.
Lela The tone of this movie is interesting -- the stakes are both dramatic and high, but it's balanced with a lot of fun, tongue and cheek dialogue.
eliottsskrap I watched this show intile season 6 and I loved it! The show displays a realistic and teenaged Clark Kent that does not only go through normal everyday problems but also problem with his and others powers. They do this very well and it becomes a great mix that is very enjoyable to watch. Why I stopped watching the show at season 6 is because I feel like it dropped this great mix and focused a lot more on drama that was not really interesting at all (or at least for me). But overall I like this show and I can definitely recommend it!
tapio_hietamaki 'Smallville' is not a good television show. It's campy, it's stupid, the character progression is deathly slow, the acting is bad, the special effects suck. Anybody saying that Tom Welling should've been cast as Superman in a live action blockbuster movie has got their head buried in the sand.Still, 'Smallville' has some good things going for it, too. For one thing, it's got Allison Mack as Chloe Sullivan, a high school reporter and friend to our hero, Young Superman. She's just a great character and her presence elevates the whole show. The other female lead, Kristin Kreuk as Lana Lang isn't that great besides being easy on the eyes.Another thing is the nostalgia factor. 'Smallville' embodies its era, the fashion, the music, the campiness. There's a generation of former teenagers who grew up with 'Smallville' and there's no denying that it was good times back then.Then there's the central theme of any Superman story: he was put on Earth as a symbol of hope. 'Smallville' has a positive outlook, it's hopeful. We know that Clark and young Lex Luthor will have their eventual falling out and become mortal enemies, but seeing them as friends lifts your spirits. The whole series is coated in charming optimism.Also: Lex's character is interesting, and Michael Rosenbaum is a good actor. He brings a bit of grey into a world of simple morality.
Realrockerhalloween I was never much of a superman fan myself not knew any of the mythology or story archs, but I thought the trailers for Smallville looked interesting enough.As I was watching the series I started to noticed the story lines were very reminiscent to Buffy with a monster of the week formula and drawn out characters quite enduring.The story is about a boy named Clark (Tom Welling) who is sent from his home planet krypton to Earth and now resides on a farm while he learns to control his powers.Joining Clark was his two best friend's Chloe Sullivan, Alison Mack who I adored in unlikely Angel, and Pete Riley who I was shocked to find out was never in any of the comics. Every week the trip became involved in the weird cases involving members of the student body becoming infected with kryptonite and gaining an unnatural ability that eventually drove them crazy.Lana Lang(Kristin Kreuk) was the equally talented and beautiful love interest who was often the damsel in distress type that gained an inner strength as the series went on.What made me love this show was the emotions it made you feel. I cries along with Clark when his father died and I worried if Clark would make it in time to stop a bomb lines to kill Chloe.The show was never afraid to go dark places and take risks that would've sunken other shows during sweeps week.What I almost forgotten to mention was the different styles of music it was famous for. Many artists pew their recognition and success to a certain fabulous show.
Infamous Ger (germccormack) This entire show was all done WRONG, everything from season 1 to the end of season 10 and reflects NOTHING from the comics but a poor attempt to shadow from the real story in order to draw it out to 10 long boring unworthy seasons and make money, luring the audience into lies and deceit ...First off, Clark never new Lex like in the show. Second, Clark never knew Lois so early and this is the most annoying. Next is the casting like Lana, come on, she was so wrong for the part not to mention Tom Welling was way too old to play a 15 year old in season one and makes you cringe when after an order from his Parents you hear lines like, "Come on Dad, I'm old enough" - yes he was old. 24 year old Welling played Clark at 15 in season 1His parents were not right either, especially Daddy Kent and had this annoying overly clear speech that no Father ever would do. Everyone on the show clicked the end of the name of "Clark" and drew it out like it was some machine which took away from the meaning of heart every other show has.The script was terrible, because NO TEEN ever talks like that. The music was all wrong in an age that no one listens to indie music unless it was made in 1991 to 1998 but it was 2001 to 2010 and should have used pop, Rap and some R&B or dance music but this awful loud banging rock or sometimes rotten indie metal would do nothing for the scenes that were designed to be an added excitement.Back to the script which made it too American and the makers KNEW it was going world wide, so are we to learn that aliens call their Mothers "Mom" and just about every Kryptoian had a yank accent, wowNone of this contains spoilers as no scene was really revealed in this review but the general outline of the show like who meets who should not 'spoil' it for you but warn you to avoid and demand that this be done all over again but in 5 seasons with a focus on Clark alone with his parents right up to the point he leaves school and toying with the notion that he likes Lana but using a better actress not one who shakes her head every time she talks.The whole purpose of the story is Clark needs to get out of Smallville and be challenged with a hidden lifestyle not meet freaks every week and use his powers quite often. Opt for the more boring story lines to make it a less boring show.
