Yeogo goedam II (1999)
Good first half, terrible second half
The first 40 minutes is very good when it focuses on the love story between the two girls. And then the second half shifts in and the movie completely falls apart. The greatest sin is that the movie's writers/directors have no sense of common sense. The ghost that appears in the second half haunts and assaults the ONLY NICE GIRL in the whole movie and completely IGNORES the characters that needs to be brought down a notch -- like the cruel classmates (God knows there's plenty of them) that picks on and abuses the main characters (and the ghost before she dies), as well as a teacher who slaps one of the girls so hard she bled. And who DOES the ghost pick on? Gee, let's see. How about the nice girl who helps them out and feels sorry for them? If that wasn't enough, the ending is all sound and fury signifying NOTHING.
The Last Supper (1995)
I love the ending!
I must say, I'm not what you would call a liberal. I'm a Democrat, but I don't consider myself one of those "limousine liberal" -- re: rich, white middle-class people who have never endured poverty in their live, and yet somehow can "feel" for those currentlys uffering. Yeah, right!
All that side, this is a wickedly funny movie and completely unpredictable. I love the intense scenes with the cop and when the liberals start to contemplate rather they should kill or not kill their dinner "guests." it's just great stuff!
Imagine, all these "tolerant" liberals sitting around judging people on what they say and starting to actually LIKE killing. Pretty soon they're killing because of the power of killing, not because they want to "rid the world of evil" -- which, ironically, they've become, since they're knocking off everyone and their mom, including the cop, who is just doing her job.
As the saying goes, "I can't tolerate intolerable people!"
And stay for the ending. It's a KILLER! Ron Perlman is GREAT.
Jung wa ying hong (1999)
Meanders and lacks focus
The movie, as mentioned in the subject line, meanders from plot point to plot point and is highly unfocused. It doesn't help that for a martial arts film there is surprisingly little martial arts to be seen. The movie suffers from too much ambition and not enough concentration. Whatever happened to the twin girl that was stolen from Hero? That question remains unanswered and unaddressed at movie's end. A shame, really, since the movie does have a very beautiful look to it.
