Take Pelham 123...PLEASE

It's been a while since I've done a movie review, but thought I'd throw up an elaborate movie review of the film:

"The Taking of Pelham 123"

My thoughts while watching this movie:

"Oh my God. This fucking sucks."

Not exactly Roger Ebert, but if I'd wasted any more time posting about this giant piece of dogshit, I'd probably miss the joy of cleaning my toilets.

Moog out.

We all have our opinions. If not, the world would be boring. I liked it. But then again, I like anything with Washington or Travolta in it.

Donnie said...

I saw the original and this new piece of crap. You're right. The original script was a new idea with great writing and real suspense. The new one couldn't even keep up with the "real" Pelham 123

Haven't seen it--probably won't bother now.

My question is why didn't you know that this movie sucked BEFORE watching it? I saw the trailer. Yeah, saved myself 2 hours that I could never get back! :D

Vodka Logic said...

Please don't hold back... lol.. I loved the original and the book. Thanks for the review.. to bad from normally two fine actors

Travis said...

I'd probably still watch it.

I have this fear that one day I'll meet Denzel, and he'll say, "Have you seen all my movies?"

I'll say, "Yeah, except that Pelham one."

And he'd kill me instantly while whistling and taking 5 to the chest and walking away slow motion style.

I quite enjoyed this movie for the mindless fluff it was. Plus Denzel Washington was freaking excellent.

But nothing compares to the original. Robert Shaw and Walter Matthau? Brilliant.

Me-Me King said...

You are so right, it sucks!

Chris said...

Saw it on cable, and I didn't think it was horrible, as far as mindless action movies go. Travolta and Denzel are always fun to watch.

Two stars out of five.

Tracie said...

I gathered that from the preview. Thanks for confirming my suspicion.

Unknown said...

Any movie Travolta puts out nowadays suck.

I kind of liked the original seventies version so I can't bring myself to endure this one because I know it will be all Hollywooded to hell and I'll want to kill people. Plus there's no Walter Matthau in this one and everyone knows Walter and his bulbous nose make a movie.

I'll wait and get it through Netflix.

selfdeprecate said...

Agreed! I turned it off about 50 mins in, that's all I could take.

Matty: Ah..someone with lower expectations than myself.


Don: Travolta was the worst. Bad guy. Ever. I couldn't wait for him to die. And that was during the opening credits.

Eva: You're welcome.

Adrienz: It was on my Netflix list..so I figured, eh..

Vodka: Normally my reviews are much longer than this.

I just couldn't bring myself to do it.

Travis: That's quite a fantasy there. Where do I come in?

JenJen: Wordy.

Jd: Mindless...yes. But it would have been better if it had been better.

Me-Me: I KNOW!

Knucklehead: Maybe commercials make it better. Everything is more awesome when you sandwich in E-Trade ads.

Kys: You're welcome. PAY UP!

Alex: Scientology is killing him. KILLING him.

Ed: Typo fixed. Thanks for pointing that out.


Veggie: Ha. You said 'bulbous.'

bulbous bulbous bulbous

OMG it's even funnier THAT way.

Coffey: Dude..that's how I got it.

I'm still trying to get the taste out of the tray of my DVD player.

Yes...it complained.

Selfdeprecate: I wish I had been so smart.

I'm glad I read this, I was going to watch this crap, now I can waste my time on something else.
