Penn & Teller Get Killed (1989)
What was that all about??
The first five minutes of this film are quite interesting when we see them in the television studio but that is the only half descent thing we see. The rest of the film is so pretentious it is unbelievable.The story is about a set of practical jokes which are not funny and half the time dont make sense and the ending is awful. The female actress turns up in the last half an hour out of nowhere and takes the film down another notch. They should have killed themselves at the beginning! Dont get me wrong i like Pen & Teller and their Bulls*** TV series is fantastic but sorry guys this stinks! 2 out of 10
Blade II (2002)
Well what a cracking film Blade II is. I must admit i wasnt expecting too much considering the first film was average but this blows the first film out of the water! The story is superb but what makes this film is the action and special affects. The computer graphics are of the best i have ever seen. The way the Vampires turn to smouldering ash when attacked by silver is quite amazing and looks so real. This is also very gory so i would not recommend this for kids but if you love action horrors that keep you gripped i cant recommend this highly enough. Quite Brilliant. 8 out of 10.
Two great actors , one average movie.
Considering the caliber of both the main actors it is difficult to understand why they both decided to take this project on. The story is neither new or gripping and if you have seen Gary Oldman before playing a bad guy ( Does he play any other character?!)then this will be nothing new to you.He is rapidly being typecast . Ving Rhames comes out of this better because at least his character has some substance. If you are expecting a classic i'm afraid you are going to be dissapointed. For Ving and Gary fans only. 6 out of 10.
Jeepers Creepers II (2003)
I wondered why they ever considered making a Jeepers Creepers II considering how poor the first film was and how stupidly it ended but alas they decided to try again. To be fair this isn't as bad as the first but what is is is very predictable . If your into teen horror then this is for you especially because anybody over 25 gets eaten before we get to know them. The way the monster can die is confusing and the end is way too predictable.
It is never explained how one of the girls is all of a sudden pychic and there is also a timeline confusion.What exact year is this taking place? It makes you wonder sometimes at what age do kids leave school too in America? The students must be 22 +. full of contridictions but never the less better than the first. 6 out of 10
Ghost Ship (2002)
Not quite a sinking ship
Ghost Ship is by no means the worst horror i have ever seen in fact some parts of this film are quite entertaining, the problem seems to be some of the poor digital computer special affect that make this film look like a bit of a B Movie. Some of the affects are good expecially the opening scene where we see the crewe of the ship killed by a steel rope.The acting is ok and the characters are good so that when they are picked off one by one ,you care. There are a lot of question left unanswered though and in stages the scenes apear to have been put in any old order . If you like Horror and dont want a film you have to think about too much then i sugest you give this a go. 6 out of 10.
Deliverance didnt deliver what i was expecting
I suppose ,Deliverance at the time of release in 1972 would have been seen as one of the most violent films seen at the cinema but 30 years on it seems quite tame. I was expecting a Southern Comfort type of film only better but it didnt really happen. In fact you could say that apart from the first 45 minutes nothing really happens at all! The acting is good and the film looks good but where were the Hill Billies chasing the men? Still worth a look though. 7 out of 10.
The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)
Superb Querky movie
The Royal Tenenbaums is a film that is hard to understand how it was made because the story isn't your typical Hollywood script but that is part of the charm of this superb film. Gene Hackman is fantastic as per usual as Royal Tenenbaum and proves he is just as good at comedy as he is serious roles. The entire cast , in fact , are very good and they dry way they deliver their lines are fantastic. The story is about life and family and how you should be able to forgive but most of all this film has the feel good factor and not many films can say that. Very good. 8 out of 10.
Great old fashioned action movie
Although Pirates of the Caribbean is not a film likely to win acadamy awards this is a film that you really cant find fault with. The story is fairly simple , a little like a fairy tale , which gives it charm.The cast is magnifiscent. Jeffrey Rush is superb as the baddie as is Johnny Depp as the comic hero. What is good to see is that he seems to have mastered the English accent unlike in the film 'From Hell'and he is charming with it. This film reminds me a little of Jason and The Argonaults but with more humour and recommend if you have not seen it do so. 8 out of 10.
Final Destination 2 (2003)
What a pleasant suprise this film was.Having seen the first film and having been underwhelmed by it this had a different affect.Although the story is no different from the first the manner in which the people die are refreshingly gory and imaginative .If that makes sense! There are some questions that are left unanswered and there are holes in the plot but thanks to the gore factor these do not matter. The acting is above average and the special affect are good. The blood count is high as it should be in a film like this. I would recommend this to any horror fan. 7 out of 10.
Roger & Me (1989)
Scandalous behavior from corporate America
Michael Moore has a unique way of opening up american society.He does not rant and rave at his subjects.(he lets them do that) he does not accuse them of anything that is anyway untrue and he just speaks for the working class which makes his a hero in my book. Although this is no Bowling or columbine this is as interesting and considering this was made 13 years earlier his style has hardly changed at all. I presume Mr Roger Smith is now dead considering his age at the time of the film and i bet he at no stage wanted for anything unlike the people who's life he ruined in the name of profit.Rest in peace...Not likely.Good riddance. 8 out of 10.
