Sukiyaki Western Django (2007)
12 yr old boy on LSD
This movie is like what you get when you strap a 12 yr old boy to a chair,pump him full of LSD and every other hallucinogenic drug, cut off his eye lids and sit him in front of an old 1970s TV set that plays nothing but Japanese samurai,yakuza,anime and old American and spaghetti western gun slinger movies. then in his drug induced rantings, have Quentin Tarantino transcribe this jiberish and team up with the worst or should I say "most controversial" Japanese film director to put it on the screen. Hire a bunch of Japanese actors that can hardly speak English and when they do, have such a strained looked on their face like they are trying to pass a kidney stone.The first five minutes of this movie is so bad, that what follows could only be worst, and it exceeded this with flying colors.I don't know what compelled me to agonizingly sit through the whole movie,but while I was watching it go from bad to worst to utterly horrid, it actually became comical, it was so bad that it went full circle.avoid at all costs.
Notes on a Scandal (2006)
This is how a movie is supposed to be made!
This movie is absolutely brilliant,well thought out, superbly cast and acted.Judi Dench plays the most fantastic role of her entire career.So deep is her character that you would almost think that this is how she is in real life. Cate Blanchett is an amazing actress, her depth brings new meaning to the word "Actress". Bill Nighy is, as always, great in every way and in every role he plays in. This is how movies should be made.I extremely enjoyed this movie in every aspect. A must see for fans of Judi, Cate, Bill or just people who long to see a award winning great movie that will refresh and renew your hopes that there are still good movies out there to be seen. 10+++ and 5 stars!
not as good a "Passion" but still a powerful movie
This movie marks the second movie by screen legend Mel Gibson that is entirely shot in the native language of the time the movie takes place. first being "The Passion of the Christ" in Aramaic and this movie being in Mayan.This movie is beautifully shot and skillfully made to lure the audience in and make them feel as they are part of the movie location and not just a person sitting in a squeaky old chair of a sticky floored movie theater starring at a screen.While as powerful and spell binding this movie might be, I feel more of a person connection to "passion" that I do to this film, mainly because of my religious background and up bringing.
This movie was dull and boring and as bad as the original Japanese version. when I went to see it, there was at most a small handful of people in the theater seats and this was on a Friday night! The plot and storyline for this movie is so far fetched and stretches so far that your eyes glaze over, your mind goes numb and you slump in your seat from sheer boredom. This movie looked like a hacker computer movie, a bad Japanese horror movie remake and a end of the world movie all mixed in one, throw in bad actors, dark muted colors and an occasional quick jump scare and you got this mess.Save your time and money and do something worthwhile and fun.
Lady in the Water (2006)
M.Night has done it again!
Master storyteller M. Night Shyamalan wows us once again with "Lady in the Water" this wonderful movie is a delightful change to the boring hum drum movies that have been coming out lately. This movie is genuinely scary, not in the tired old an ax murderer,mutant,terrorist or crazy killer coming to get you scary. but really jump out your seat get chills that run down your spine scary.Bryce Dallas Howard who Plays the character of Story gives an excellent performance. you will notice right away that she was the blind girl from M.Nights other truly excellent movie "The Village".Paul Giamatti who plays the main character of Cleveland Heep also gives an award winning performance as the apartment maintenance man and Storys caretaker. If your tired of wasting your money on average run of the mill cookie cutter movies and looking for something that will both scary and delight you then you must see this movie. 10++ all around.
best Pixar movie since Toy Story
upon entering the theater I wasn't expecting anything wow and big from pixar since the last few movies they made really didn't hit it off with me. But I Love "Cars"!! its the best movie that pixar has created in a long long time. Not since the early days of "Toy Story" have I enjoyed a Pixar movie so much that I wanted to write a comment about it. This movie is fantastic! It has everything you could ever want in a movie plus a whole lot more. The team over at Pixar really went over and beyond with this movie and all that hard work really shows.although the gags references and storyline are more for the adults than the kids, I still would recommend this movie to absolutely everybody. 10++++
See No Evil (2006)
they just don't get any worse than this
upon seeing this "film" and I use the term loosely since this movie is not worth the the celluloid its printed on. There's bad and there's "See no evil" the top of the heap of bad horror films. Giving it a 1 on the ratings scale is far far to good a score to bestow on such a horrible waste of time,money and everything else.The tired old cliché of a monster like man that acts out the tormented over religious self righteous up bringing trust upon him when he was a child by his over bearing domineering mother.Killing beautiful young girls and ripping their eyes out because they are "living sin".I painfully sat through as one by one they were killed and their eyes put into glass jars filled with some oily fluid.Unoriginal,Unintelligent,not scary, and just plain bad pretty much sums this one up.
An American Haunting (2005)
Lamest horror movie in years!
At first I thought this movie was going to be a good old fashioned ghost story. But it turned out to by a silly farce of a poor attempt at lame horror movie at best. The trailer said " the most documented case of a haunting" and to that I just have to say "huh?, I never heard about it". and pretty much up on my ghost stories.The very Idea of a girl going through an "emotional trauma" so great that she manifests a ghost of herself that in turn not only haunts and beat her up nightly, it haunts and torments her family and friends as well. And I thought girls of today are moody and anti-social. This movie has some fast editing shock effects and loud crashes and screams but thats about it,other than that its a very stupid waste of time and money.
The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
Just like Wolf Creek
Even though this movie is a remake of a movie of the same name made back in 1977, this movie has striking similarities to an Austrailian movie called "Wolf Creek". This movie has a family going on vacation driving through the desert, Wolf Creek has a two couples going on vacation driving through the Austrailian Outback (also a desert). This movie has the family stopping at a gas station and being greeted by a grizzly old man. Wolf Creek also has a similar gas station stopping scene. This movie has one of the characters walking to a big huge crater, Wolf Creek has the characters walking to a big huge crater. This movie has a family of crazy deformed mutants killing people stripping them of their valuables and junking their cars, Wolf Creek has a old crazy man that kills his victims strips them of their valuables and junks their cars, the list just goes on and on. Plus the deformed mutant in the wheelchair reminded me of the video "Rubber Johnny" by Aphex Twin.
Boys Beware (1961)
pure laugh riot
"Ralph is sick, not a sickness that you can see like small pox but a sickness of the mind. Ralph is a homosexual." WOW! No wonder the world is as screwed up as it is today. This "educational" film was shown in classrooms across the country during the 1960's and possibly for the next 20 or 30 years. It would explain some of the hate and fear of the gay community and a fear for the gay individual during that time period. Watching this film today, one just can sit back and laugh at it how it portrays a gay man as "sick". and how you must avoid them at all costs.Although some of the points in the film still ring true today, such as to not go in a strangers car or to not take an unfamiliar "short cut" home. One tends to wonder what the world might have been like had we treated the gay community back then as we do now. But with all the conflict of gay marriage today. It might not have been any different.
