The Station Agent (2003)
Easily the most beautiful movie I've ever seen.
I saw this movie with my father just a few weeks ago at a kind of Indie Theatre. This movie showed a minority in our society goes unnoticed. In Hollywood and the media it is still accepted to manipulate and belittle dwarves or little people.
Growing up in a bi-racial family I knew what it was like to be discriminated by my peers and I felt for Fin, the main character. This fantastic movie makes you feel for these characters like few movies will ever do.
The Gristle (2001)
Way better than a lot of other HBO films
Don't quote me on the HBO part, but it sure seemed that way. It's was a good movie that at times ran too long, but in general it was good. Not only did it have a good back and forth, "who screwed who" storyline, it addresses very important racial questions and tensions. Very few movies take such abstract looks and judgments at the current. Worth watching.
Eight Days a Week (1997)
This is the Breakfast Club of my generation
I don't know what to say. I woke up one Sunday morning, and my roommate yelled at me to watch it with him. I'm glad I did. It was fantastic.
Some criticize the director of not knowing what teens think about, and that he's out of touch with the youth. Dubious. In my high school years, my friends and I made Raquel Welch and Julie Newmar as our mascots, and had frequent debates over who was the best James Bond. It reminded me of high school, and more specifically my Senior year.
In conclusion, this movie was fantastic, and reminded me a lot of better days. I highly suggest this movie for anyone. I'd feel comfortable watching this with my parents. It's just a shame that it's so hard to find.
Ghosts of Mars (2001)
John Carpenter's worst film
Now, I haven't seen all of John Carpenter's movies, but I'm almost positive that this is his worst. In fact, I'd venture to say this is the worst film I've ever seen, and I've seen some bad ones, like Tammy and the Teenage T-Rex (late night USA).
It's not like I have anything against John Carpenter, because I loved Vampires, In the Mouth of Madness, They Live, Big Trouble in Little China, Escape From New York, The Fog, and Halloween. They aren't fantastic movies, but they are all entertaining. It's just dissapointing to see such a horrible movie come from a director with such a good track record.
In a way, it seemed like Natasha Henstridge was the only straight actor in a movie fool of stooges. Ice-Cube's portrayal of Desolation Williams was sad. I hate to rip on him, because I loved Glass Shield with Lori Petty. It was also sad to see Pam Grier in such a poor role. It breaks me heart...
In conclusion, this movie is bad, with poor characters, poor music, poor set, and poor, poor John Carpenter to retain the shame that is Ghosts of Mars.
