Raiders of the Damned (2007)
Never trust the white coats
Although IMDb insists this is still in post production, it's not. Which is a shame because it really needed more work. I watched this a few nights ago on the Horror Channel (uk) and have to say that even for the Horror Channel this is a new low.
There are Zombies, and scientists and the military but this is by no means anywhere near as good as anything Romero has done.
Richard Grieco gives the worst acting performance of his life, and thats saying something as I've seen him in a film about giant spiders.
My favourite part of the film has to be one actor getting upstaged by a coughing horse. It's all very high school drama, the special effects are far from special.
If the idea of zombie sex does it for you then this could well be the film you have been waiting for.
This is a breath-taking film that requires the full concentration of the audience, but pays off with some truly stunning visuals. A brilliantly original script, handled excellently by Gondry. Winslet and Carrey are both wonderful in their roles as estranged lovers seeking a fresh start through memory erasure. Carrey especially seems to exude a sense of helplessness that makes him both fascinating and likable and yet in the same breath too vulnerable to like. This film shows a very modern take on romance and is well worth seeing.
Brief Encounter (1945)
True love is always touched by tragedy
Shot in breath-taking black and white, "Brief Encounter" is a true gem of British Cinema. It is a simple story passionately told, we see an ordinary housewife step outside her mundane life and begin an affair with a dashing doctor. David Lean builds tension and gives us a glimpse of the psychology of these characters by the way in which he constructs his shots. A classic moment comes when Laura (Celia Johnson) contemplates suicide, Lean uses the sudden appearence of a train and scream of its whistle to convey her desperation. For me "Brief Encounter" is so great because it has such a downbeat feel to it. It is, in short, one of the truely honest films about love ever made.
