Crop And Save
American Heist (2014)
There is a "heist" here - if you spend money to watch this turkey!
Boring, predictable and utterly forgettable, "American Heist" is a complete waste of time. I watched this because my wife has a thing for Adrien Brody. I think he's a fine actor, but clearly this was done just for a paycheck. It's hard to make a bland bank robbery, but it was done successfully here. Just putting known actors in a film does not a good film make, an intelligent well-written script helps and this was just thrown together without much thought.
Save your money and read a good novel or take a walk or stare into space! There are so many poor films out there. When the industry complains about loss of its audience, it should consider the product we are asked to rent/purchase.
The Untouchables (1987)
Fictional account of historical events. Terrible movie!
It's hard to make such a bad movie about a colorful period in American history, but they did just that. I cannot recommend any part of this film as worthwhile, from the poor acting, very flat performances to the truly bad musical score, this film is bad all around. It does not follow the historical events accurately besides the fact that Al Capone and Eliot Ness, etc. did exist.
The characters are cartoon like, as is the action - just watch the scene with the baby carriage going down the stairs with guns firing all around it.
How this received such a high rating is beyond me! The film actually made me angry because it was so ridiculous. Just think of this material in the hands of someone like Scorsese.
The Other Woman (2014)
No matter how much talent is in front of the camera, if the writing is not up to par there's trouble ahead. That about sums up "The Other Woman", which is a mess of a film and makes the almost two hours feel like at least ten hours.
It is just not funny and is filled with implausible situations that try your patience. Of course, if those situations resulting in humor and "ha ha" funny, you just go with it, but there's nothing worse than a unfunny "funny" picture. Leslie Mann is a talented actress but is wasted here along with Cameron Diaz. I kept waiting for those funny moments I read about in other reviews. Well the film ended and I'm still waiting!
Ridiculous and boring but with a great cast!
I will usually watch any film with Johnny Depp in it but I wish that I had made this the exception to my rule. Somehow, as soon as this film began, I knew I was in trouble. Call it an intuitive sense based on the number of films I've watched or whatever, but the truth is I was correct. It is a tremendous waste of exceptional talent in a film that is way beyond preposterous. I can deal with expanding what is believable but this film presents it in a way that is incredibly not interesting. I found myself not caring within 30 minutes. Actually, to make a scifi film so lacking takes a certain kind of "talent". It's a shame because the genre is screaming for intelligent, well-made movies. It's also a cruel joke to fill it with so much top talent and then waste it with so poor a script. Johnny Depp could not look more bored and one of his over the top performances might have helped here.
Don't accept this "Delivery"!
And again, those exceptional reviews had to be written by those involved with the film. I keep promising myself not to get sucked in by those reviews and t be more discerning but I was taken again! Nothing much happens and I was on the edge of my couch since I fell asleep and almost landed on the floor. This was extremely boring, very slow moving, no real plot and absolutely no suspense. Basically a waste of time and money and clearly one of the most boring found footage films ever made. Those of you who found something like this suspenseful should check out true horror films and see the difference. Watch "Rosemary's Baby" and compare it to this film and then review this title!
Devil in My Ride (2013)
Beware, this is a BAD ride!
I rented this video due to the high rating and the good external ratings. I was fooled again!! This is a low quality film that is neither a decent comedy nor a decent horror film. The effects are poor, the acting is poor and basically every aspect of this film is poorly done! I am getting tired of being fooled by reviews and ratings by those affiliated with the project. I now am more careful but still get fooled at times. Count this as one of those times! Horror films used to be one of my favorite genres, it is now my worst due to the countless lousy titles out there. It is the easiest kind of video to make, don't need much of a script or plot and just follow thee template for horror films. I think we should all make a concerted effort to STOP watching this videos, they do not deserve an audience!
Walk of Shame (2014)
Walk away and save yourself the shame!
This film starts out strong with funny news clips and goes downhill after the first 30 minutes. I really like Elizabeth Banks and find her to be a very talented actress. This proves once again that talented actors alone do not a good film make. So much depends on the writing and script and in this case the poor writing and overdone script ideas sink this way before the end.
Since Ms. Banks does not have much to work with she's without a paddle here. The film becomes tedious about halfway through.
I saw people mention the similarity to "After Hours", but that film had a creative energy and didn't follow a normal "plot". This film lacks anything creative and is a by the numbers comedy.
The real shame is that this was made!
Broken Side of Time (2013)
Broken side of filmmaking
OK, I have never done this, but I am 35 minutes into this film and cannot believe how awful this film is! The first 30 minutes were spent with one character. She played with her lighter for 15 minutes, spent some time on the phone, etc. The film is slightly over 2 hours long and I am getting sick and tired of people associated with a film writing phony reviews. Film making is an art, it requires a particular kind of talent and skill. Owning equipment does not a film maker make!! I wish there was some way to control bogus reviews because this does not qualify as a film! I am tired of wasting my time watching stuff that's unwatchable.
Spare yourself and pass this one by quickly!!
An excellent film!
I have not read the novel, nor seen the 1996 version, so I cannot base my review on any sort of comparison. Filled with newcomers, this film really surprised me. I was hooked from the first scene and my interest continued for the length of the film. This is a long film, over two hours but it did not feel like it. The performances were outstanding, especially by the actress portraying legs. With so many lousy films and independent attempts that are failures, it was a pleasure to be rewarded with this viewing. I would guess that several promising careers have now begun. Kudos to all involved with the making of this film!
A review by someone NOT involved in this film
I watched this film after the glowing reviews by both the external reviews and those posted on this website. Be forewarned this is an extremely low budget film with terrible acting, camera work and music among other things. The story is less than interesting and I am posting this review to maintain some integrity to this site. I question the professionalism of those who write reviews for some of the film websites. To rate this so high is beyond me.
So, the movie is less than interesting because all aspects of the production are amateurish. A movie viewer should be able to rely on other people's honest appraisal of something that is going to cost them money. I hope this review will be read along with the glowing ones!
