The Village (2004)
Farce, Lunatic Fairy Tale Film.
While watching this film it started to become very apparent to me that M. Night Shyamalan and his cousins he teamed up with to the write this film. They decided to make a film with a great premise of a story line, and take that base idea and subsequently create a series of ideas that changed the first thing they made you believe true; one thing at a time. Just barely enough to make you accept the change and make you want to continue to believe in the original storyline. The only problem with doing it this way was, the writers decided to justify each change after the first with an even more rediculous far fetched Fairy Tale make believe concept than the last.
The Village went from A-Z(A being the original great premise and Z being the Stupidest concept of all), and in between it made D, dumber than C, which was more ass-nine and more make believe than B and so on. This film did this from B-Y. Putting twists and changing what the audience is made to believe while watching a film, is something that M. Night Shyamalan has recognizably done before.( The Sixth Sense , Signs ) Which till this film was made moderately acceptable and did not make the film suck monkey balls. When done in excess it made me and all the people I went along with want to walk out multiple times during the film. The Village could easily compare to a bad episode of days of our lives. The only accomplishment in this film was it's absurd ability to make people believe in such a rediculous made up bull-sh*t story. Even more than the biggest one of all. Give your money to a better cause, like The Help Absurd Film Writers and Their Cousins Who Help Them Come Up With Stupid Ideas Foundation. 1/10 How does this guy keep getting work?
Raw Target (1995)
They are worse in the genre
This action martial arts flick stars Kickboxing Champion Dale " The Appolo" Cook in one of his last movies, not as good as " Fist of Steel" which was by far his best. That movie also had the American debut of Cynthia Kahn, which helped matters a lot. Not to many of Cook's movies have gotten any recognition, probably due to flooding of these kinds of productions are the time he was involved. The fights in this one are pretty good, I like the Nick Hall stuff although I always confuse him with Chris Cassamasa, who is another good martial artist who played Scorpion in "Mortal KOmbat". Bad filming and sound don't help matters either. Rent it and check your brain at the door of the video store and just enjoy the action.
Belly of the Beast (2003)
"I think I liked you better as a bi*ch"..Jake Hopper
Another great one liner from Seagal in one his best movies in a long time,I really enjoyed "Out for a Kill" but thought that "The Foreigner" was pretty bad and "Ticker" did not have enough of Seagal. Seagal starts as Hopper and ex-CIA agent , whose daughter is inadvertly kidnapped while traveling with her friends in Thailand. One of whom happens to be the daughter of a Senator. Hopper and his long time buddy (Bryon Mann) set of to rid the Thailand of every bad guy known to man, the body count in this one is huge. Despite the resports on the imdb, Russell Wong is not in this. On a scale of 1 to 10 for Seagal films, I give it an 8.
Side Roads (1988)
Bad in a good way
I was anxious to see the first film Jeff Speakman starred in. This film was nothing that I expected and there was not a single fight scene in it. Speakman plays a recentley paroled con name Joe. After a series of bizare incidents the ending is a total shocker. So bad, you have to keep watching just see what happens next.
