A filmmakers perspective.
Okay...as a prospective filmmaker, I look for things like 1) a plot, 2) characters i connect to, 3) cinematography, 4) an overall ambiance of an entire film, what I go away feeling when I finish the film.
I can say I never wanted to walk out of a movie before, but not even half way through i was itchin to get out of my seat, had I not gone with my friends I wouldn't have been put through hell, which is what I felt I was in having to sit through such crap.
I never once understood what was going on. Did anyone else pick up on the prophecy of what was suppose to be happening? I felt like the director was the only person who followed the story, while making people pay 9 bucks to see something they would never understand.
Why did the camera shake? Did it have any significance, I mean the actors never responded to the earthquake effect, and it wasn't like we were experiencing it from the "evil" that was chasing them. Why did the dad go crazy. Why was the acting so weak? what the hell was that thing Anna Paquin uncovered under the floor boards? Why, when the family was in Spain, did everyone speak English and have English accents, even all the newspaper headings were in English? What the hell did the dad do that made him move everywhere? I got the mother was a nurse, like at the end of the movie, but there was nothing else to suggest that was her job. And last..but certainly not least, what the f*** was the ending? All I can figure was the director said "oops we are out of money, lets end it here." worst ending for a movie. ARRRRRR!!!! Anyway, I never really give perspectives of movies on here because everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but from the looks of it, everyone else hated this flick as well. I have never felt disappointed this much after seeing a film so I had to warn all others who are thinking of seeing this movie to GO SEE SOMETHING...ANYTHING else. This film makes Phantom top notch. I give this movie an F-.
A Mighty Wind (2003)
Idea for movie from Saturday Night Live Sketch!
I just watched an old 1984 episode of Saturday Night Live with guest Michael Mckean and musical guest Shaka Kahn. I believe that this episode was the start of the idea for "A Mighty Wind".
In the episode there is a sketch about and old trio folk band reuniting after 20 years. It featured the same actors that appeared as the Kingston trio in the film and even sang the same songs!!! It went throughout the series of interview with each singer talking about the reunion and then showed them rehearsing. At the end of the sketch they sing there famous song "Eat at Joe's". It was great!
Now, I gotta say, I am a huge Christopher Guest fan. I think his story telling is great and fun. Some films are better than others, but in a whole they are all original and entertaining. I was so excited when I saw this sketch. Seeing the origins of a movie that would be made nearly 20 years later.
Thanks for listening.
