Quotes

Mr. Belafonte: All right. Fine. I didn't see a snake. For heaven's sake, there is no such thing as a giant snake. I must have lost my mind for a second.
Psychiatrist: Everybody makes mistakes. I'm glad you're seeing clearly.
[to the guard]
Psychiatrist: You may untie him.
Mr. Belafonte: I hate to say this, but the giant snake is in this hospital right now. Look out your window.

How did we get to Mordor, mommy?
19 September 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This movie serves as a timely warning to anyone who thinks they can both write and direct their own movie. Face it, you can't. Because that way there's nobody around to tell you when you hack great holes in your plot, have meaningless transitions, trite, unmemorable dialog and manage to turn a fairly cool Korean legend into a steaming pile of celluloid turd.

I wanted to like this movie as a trashy popcorn movie, really I did; I like lots of crappy movies. But once I've been forced to ask myself what the hell just happened and WHY, DEAR LORD, WHY? more than a few times, I really can't take it any more.

Also, I would love for someone to explain how LA became Mordor for the last scene.
