Crazy Eights (2006)
You might want to skip this one....
The premise is very interesting. Children being experimented on and then most are never seen again. This movie follows some of those children who are now grown up. The problem with the movie is that the death scenes are too short and not enough screen time for the viewer of a true horror movie to appreciate. Flash backs would have been a HUGE plus so you could see what the children had to go through. Once again I do like the plot. The actors were fine. The directing was the problem. I think this deserves a remake where you go more in depth with characters and their ultimate demise. If you want a movie where someone lives at the end - no luck Chuck! The ending was zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz and did not play enough on the horror that these children went through. I say SKIP IT!
Waste of Time
Just awful.............looked like it was filmed in a HS Gym...casting was horrible! Could not even watch this mess of a production. The original was sublime. This was a mess from the beginning. I stopped watching after a half hour that I will never get back. Shame on the people who thought that they could re-make a classic. Adam Lambert looked like some maniac and he has so much talent that is was a shame to see what they made him do. Not the Meatloaf from the original. He had the potential to blow the roof off this role but NO........it was just a mess. Tim Curry looked like he needed to be in a home. This production made me so angry of the mess it created that all I can say is DO NOT WATCH THIS. WOW...what a waste of time and money and NO TALENT. Just go away horrible remake.
Why make a re-make of a classic! Did Stephen King approve this?? I hope NOT!
"Carrie" is an American Classic horror movie. The cast of the original "Carrie" was iconic. This has a C+ cast. Julianne Moore is a brilliant actress but does not hold a candle to Piper Laurie in this role. Chloë Grace Moret is already beautiful so there is not much to make her "prettier" for the prom. The whole movie is just lacking. The tele- kinetic powers seem forced and not scary. There are a few differences from the original. After Carrie is covered in blood at the prom - she does check to see if her date is OK...he is not! Is he dead? Probably. Amy Irving was perfect as Sue..the new Sue is milk toast. None of the cast lives up to their predecessors. The ending is so bad...has nothing on the original which made me jump out of my seat. People live at the end of this Carrie. After watching every "Carrie" re-make - I would NOT recommend this movie unless you are completely bored and there is NOTHING on TV. Very disappointing. AND - the filming of Carrie's first period in the shower and then posting it online...YIKES..welcome to the 21st century. Garbage in and garbage out. My recommendation SKIP IT!
Great Script and well acted by an amazing cast
Adrienne Shelly did a wonderful job of crafting, directing and acting in this amazing story of the lives of several people in a small town. Keri Russell is wonderful as Jenna who is a woman trapped in a loveless marriage with no hopes of anything for the future. Her abusive husband played by Jeremy Sisto (who did a wonderful job) showed the plight of the middle American woman and the anguish they suffer in a small town and the small minded egocentric self absorbed male that feels the woman is there to serve his needs and nothing more. Nathan Fillion was wonderful as the small town doctor that provided a ray of hope to his patient Jenna. He gave a glimpse of what is could be like to be wanted and loved. Cheryl Hines is great as Becky the hardened woman with an invalid husband who just wants more out of life. Adrienne Shelly is superb as Dawn. Her quirky character looking for love is priceless. Andy Griffith is great as Joe the cranky Pie Shop Owner who only wanted the life he could have had but always passed on. I would recommend this to anyone. This Tranche de vie is well worth watching. The cast is perfect and the script is wonderful. The sad part is that Adrienne was killed shortly after making this movie. It looked at first that she had committed suicide but later determined that she had been killed by a worker in her building. She caught him trying to steal from her purse and he killed her and made it look like a suicide. He later confessed to these facts. She left behind a husband and small daughter (who appears in the film). Perhaps more of a "chick flick" I would suggest this to anyone who loves a good movie. It will make you laugh and tear up and at the end it just works out.
Girls Gone Dead (2012)
Made for teenage boys....JUST BAD!
OK..the fact that I finished this movie is a miracle. BOOBS gone wild is basically what is going on here. I am a woman...but if I had the boobs that they show in this movie I would make an appointment with a DR. ASAP! Pancake central...There are "Carrie" undertones that could have been explored much much more. I wonder when people write these scripts do they think that we are all just stupid?? OK ..let's just show T and A...that is all we need to do............sigh... We need more Stephen King's on this planet to give us all something to watch. This was just DUMB! There was some promise from the lead actress for the future but READ THE SCRIPT! OK Calgon ...TAKE ME AWAY!! SIGH!!
Don't Blink (2014)
It is one of "Those" Movies
It has a great cast and a great story line but it is one of "Those" Movies.....what do I mean by that...it is one that at the end you say "Um"............why did they disappear? OK so lets back up...a group of friends decides to go to the mountains for a quiet weekend. When they get to the lodge there is no one there...they find food not eaten, water running, a baby chair with no baby...and then THEY start to disappear. One by One with no warning. There is a lot of suspense as they are right next to each other and then POOF....GONE. So you wait the whole movie to see WHY and you get NOTHING!................I hate these movies - give me a resolution already...........AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH With such a great cast and script ...give me an ending!!!!! I got nothing!
Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984)
Ahhhh get ready for a nap!
Slow,slow, slow...did I mention it is slow? The music is the typical 70's - 80's horror music....so bad so bad so bad...did I mention it was SO BAD! The dialogue is stilted as one would imagine in the decade and genre. Cast was just OK. The age in the brothers was so wrong. He is 18 and his kid brother should have been at least 14 but he looked like he was 10. I guess if you are a boy looking for "boobie" shots..there you go. If you want a fast paced horror movie with thrills...um no! I would like to see this movie re-made in 2015. I think it would hold your interest much better. I love horror but this.........um..........NO.....this is a great movie if you want to take a nap during the movie............zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
The Last Ship (2014)
WONDERFUL and must see!!
Having just seen the first episode I am hooked! It is a MOVIE on TV! The cast is great! The plot is great! Love everything about it! So..what is it about? There is a virus in Egypt and 2 scientists go to help. They end up with samples on a Naval War ship. They LIE to the reason they are there. While research is gone on there is a pandemic. Countries of the world are crumbing as everyone is dying. The last hope is on board the Navy ship to try and save humanity, It is worth watching to see who and who will not be saved.I am captivated by the entire process. I can't wait to see episode 2. I have to keep tying to submit my review...................are you kidding me............sigh
Step into the mind of a Serial Killer
A very disturbing ride into the sadistic mind of a serial killer. Start with the abduction of a Mother and Son. Kill the Mother but keep the son who is only 9 years old. There ensues the torture and mental abuse that keep this poor child on the brink of madness. Chained for most of his life and being under the constant eye of the serial killer who took his mother's life. "Rabbit" beings to deteriorate while hiding inside his own mind. The murders continue (all are off screen for those of you who want to know). Great cast! Great plot! It keeps you on the edge of your seat and the turn at the end is unexpected. I would love to see "Chained 2". Worth a watch!!!
Zoom In: We Are the Millers (2013)
What a FUN Movie!
With an unlikely cast of characters this is a fun movie to watch. Enter Jason Sudakis who is a Drug Courier. His neighbor is stripper Jennifer Aniston. Then enter his other neighbor, a young boy abandoned by his Mother and a homeless girl from the streets. So, what does this add up to? While trying to help the homeless girl who is being beat up by a bunch of street thugs, Sudakis steps in only to be ratted out by his nosy young boy neighbor that he indeed sells drugs. Now Sudakis is the target and gets all of his money and drugs stolen. His dealer (Ed Helms from "The Hangover") finds out and NOW he must make it right. He has to make a trip to Mexico to retrieve a shipment of drugs. Well, how is he going to do that? After seeing an RV on the street with a home town family who is graciously helped by the police a light bulb goes off! OK..so now he needs a family. With a few bribes he gets the stripper, the abandoned teen and the homeless girl to take over the roles. This band of misfits starts out on a plane and then an RV to Mexico. At first, there is much discontent but as the adventure continues they become united. There is comedy, action, adventure and FUN! I loved watching this one. Great for a fun movie night. BUT watch until the end because the outtakes are WONDERFUL!!!
