The Hammer (2007)
Sometimes simplicity is the best policy...
I rented this last night from Blockbuster, upon reading the comments on IMDb. I had been eyeing it on my past few visits, and finally decided to give it a shot. Yep, it was good, and I was not surprised. Adam Corolla is a smart man, he came up with a decent story and had somebody write a decent script for it. While I'm not a huge fan, I like his deadpan humor quite a bit, and he uses it to full effect in his movie. He doesn't play a character he essentially is himself, and it works, he doesn't try to act himself into something he's not. What I was surprised about is his athletic agility, I didn't realize he was so athletic, or did he have stand ins? I'll give it a second watch and pay more attention to that. All in all, nice simple story, no special effects, just a good low budget movie about human beings and a somewhat surprising ending that I won't spoil. Not that it is in my top ten movies of all time, but maybe my recent top ten. Go ahead, give it a watch and enjoy it. I did. Sometimes simplicity is the best policy, I hope Adam will do another one and keep it simple again...
Venice Underground (2005)
How did they get all these decent actors in this movie???
How did they get all of these decent actors in this movie, and why do they all look so bad?? Well, the script is full of plot holes and sub standard dialogue, it's shot on digital video (which actually the camera work and lighting are about the only decent part about this flick, which is why I rated it a three)...I guess all the actors needed to pay their rent or something, I don't know...there is a part near the end where a car blows up, then a cut to a different shot ---no car there or at least something that resembles flames falling across the actors' faces (and this would be a major cheat shot)!!! I guess somebody that produced this had some money, was able to pay some decent rates to the actors for minimal shooting schedule, and voilà, there you have it!! This is when great digital technology goes bad!!! Don't waste your time, I'm was really disappointed and there is only one naked girl in this, a skanky looking stripper...much rather see Nichole Hiltz bare some flesh, she has a love scene but nothing is shown (sorry girls, no flesh baring for Eric Mabius either!!) Do something else with a hour and a half of your time!!!
Perfect Fit (2001)
A very clever little low budget flick. Society outsider Dick (Alexander Niver Polinsky) meets the girl of his wet dreams Perry (the very hot Maria Ford with a nice boob job since some of her other films, and yes, like most of her films, she does get naked in this one also), and it is discovered that they both have a fetish for the Perfect Fitting jeans, and will go to any length to get them, including murder. A simple but bizarre plot not for every taste, but a very original movie. The leads fit into their roles nicely (pun intended), and the supporting cast is also solid. I rented this movie because of the box-cover and expected nothing, and I was pleasantly surprised to find out what a great little sleeper this was, then ended up purchasing a copy for my collection. Veteran B-Movie producer Donald P. Borchers does a nice directing job, I was pleased to see that he has also been involved with some other films I am also fond of. See it one night when you're in a twisted mood, it will make a great evening of cinematic entertainment...
