Enough with the horror footage thing
I think enough is done already with hand-held cameras and horror footages.If they keep making movies the same type, they will suck the fun out of it.The same thing Hollywood did with zombie movies.Nonetheless horror fans would like this movie for good scares.
Its an anthology of horror footages, each directed by a different director, some of of them are scary, others just entertaining.I won't spoil anything for you but the one with video chat and another with a vampire mutant was new and scary.These two are the ones for which I definitely recommend this title to horror fans.Others small stories were just were just fine.
This title had so much hype but it didn't live up to it.Had this movie came out a few years earlier, it would have been the most horror movie of the century but now this footage thing is losing flavor with time.
I din't want to discredit it all together but these talented directors should use their skills for something more original.Overall I rate it 6/10
An excellent drama in a very long time
This movie definitely proved two things, Steve Mcqueen is a brilliant director and Fassbender an excellent actor.We rarely see this class of direction and acting these days, its apparently lost in time.
Movie is about Brandon(Fassbender) who is a sex addict, how he goes on with his day to day life and hates it and we actually feel his life breaking apart.His sister (Carey Mulligan) has relationship issues and lands in his apartment time to time setting Brandon off. He thinks his sister is a complete loser which actually is the projection of his own guilt.
Movie has this dark tone and empty feel to it which goes amazingly well with the scenes. There are some wonderful long takes where Fassbenders's expressions say it all.All the characters gave fine performances and I hope to see excellent work from the director again.
My rating 9/10
Transformers left over Footage
I still wonder why they named the title after the board game.Its an alien invasion movie with a pretty simple plot.Humans set out a signal to some faraway planet as a simple "Hi" but the natives get really offended and send battleships/transformer-crafts to invade earth.
Movie looks like leftover footage from transformers but naval warfare to some extent is enjoyable. The alien creatures look so C-G, even computers games are doing a better job and these aliens have no character to them.The alien transformer-crafts are cool and these ball shredders sequences are well done
Acting and punchlines are terrible and cheesy throughout the movie. The lead actor was portrayed a complete loser who breaks into a gas station to impress a girl and was about to be terminated from the navy but somehow turns out to be the hero who saves the world.They hired Liam Neeson for the trailer I guess because that's his total part.Rihanna was fine.
Its that volatile kind of movie, you watch..you forget.Don't expect anything like transformers because its not.As I said earlier naval warfare is the only enjoyable part because that has never been shown before on such large scale.
I rate this movie over all 5/10
Eden Lake (2008)
What the hell was that?
OK where do I start?
Firstly for those who haven't seen the title.This is the sickest film I have ever seen, not because there is blood and puke everywhere, but because it disproves the existence of GOD or nature or any supreme being who is watching over innocent humanity.
It left me restless, sleepless and nauseous for a 03 days and I am still hungover. Two months have passed and finally I have been able to gather my thoughts to warn you people. Do not see this!
About the movie ..Screenplay is awesome, acting is good, make-up excellent and great lighting. well you would be thinking what's not to like and here is what.. the movie goes on into torturing the helpless innocent to the point where you wished you were never born in this world. And there is no redemption, no justice, no salvation. The plot leads them from one trap into another till they are brutally tortured and murdered and the evil lives happily ever after.
Perfect Sense (2011)
Masterpiece!! Must see
I really don't know where to start on this one.This movie left me stunned.I had very little expectations but this was a amazing. This movie has more feel to it than the actual script.I must tell you the movie is rather dark and disturbing and makes you feel empty at the end
Our perception defines us and our world, which we perceive through our five senses.without them there is nothing ...only darkness.End of the world.Well this is what the movie brilliantly delivers. A pandemic robs mankind of its senses one by one virtually killing them each time but hope keeps them alive and living.
Screenplay is very powerful and you literally feel the movie.Background commentary and score actually pull the whole thing off.Movie poster is quite erotic and misguiding in my opinion but the movie is not.
over all I give 9/10 A MUST WATCH!!!
Paranormal Activity (2007)
This movie is REALLY SCARY....NO JOKE
I never rate a movie 10/10 but this movie is the best in its genre. I have watched almost every horror Hollywood movie in the past 15 years,only a few actually did an effort to scare the audience,they play around with special effects and sound-effects.(You know when the camera is focusing something and a cat with a loud noise jumps at the camera.Pretty dumb..huh? they are supposed to scare us not test our reflexes) But this movie is a genuine piece of work. Its one of those unseen horror flicks like 'The Blair witch project'and pictured in the same manner. A sequential footage that scares the hell out of you. The best part is after watching the movie when you go to sleep in your bed.The movie is bound to haunt you for some time.
If you sleep alone, please do not watch this movie.
NB:I have been a Great Great Memento fan since the time of its release and watched that movie a dozen times and Love it..For all those people who haven't seen "Memento" please don't compare it to "ghajini".This "Ghajini" is nothing like it nor could ever be."Memento" was a true masterpiece.
After having said that...now I was forced to give 1/10 as there was no lower rating.It doesn't deserve 1/100 or 1/1000.I would have rated higher if Aamir was not in it. I just can't believe he took the movie.Still wonder.. may be he was threatened or something.After projects like "rang de basanti" and "taare zameen per" how could you ever do such a CRAP??
To sum up Aamir's ripped body,lots of shouting,Aamir kicks on ground...living bodies fly in the air.The most cheesy acting heroin in the history of Bollywood ,lame jokes,complete mockery of medical students and profession and the most hideous and unforgivable crime ever..they mocked "Memento".Why on earth did they do that??? I don't usually write reviews on the movies but this one made me mad.I wanted people to know how bad it is.I just don't believe how this movie got recognition from masses.Even the starting titles part is cheated form "Fight Club"
Bollywood wake up!!!There are people who love and respect Hollywood classics.Don't mock them with senseless load of crap. this movie gets 3/10 for action, 5/10 for music and a true "ZERO/10" when whole movie is watched in a single sitting. The movie is so unbelievably worse you actually have to watch to make yourself believe. Regards Dr.Saad Khan
New York (2009)
Bound to make you cry !!
To start off, I congratulate the whole team behind the "New york" project.The director Mr.Kabir Khan has already shown his talent in last movies but this time the young actors need appreciation. John Abraham has been good in some movies (water and Saaya.. My favorite)but not in this movie but I don't blame him,maybe the poor script needed editing.Except for the detention part Abraham's acting was weak.I have never seen outstanding performances by Neil or Katrina but this time they have been well directed that did bring out their acting potential.Neil's role was more or less again the "black sheep" type so we can not assess the real boudries of his talent. Katrina's dialogs were just fine but her expressions were great.Irfan Khan was best as ever.The American actors were really pathetic especially the FBI agent who didn't look like one.The soundtrack is really moving and that does most of the talking in half the movie,But that is great!!
Now the Plot and storyline.A recent Pakistani movie by Shoaib Mansoor "Khuda ke liye" already shown what "New york" has to offer. But of course due to limited resources Pakistani movie was not up to the mark however it presented the topic in a broader prespective.9/11 aftermath was the real asset of the movie but unfortunately very little proportion of time line was allotted to it. They say movie defines both perspectives, the terrorist and the FBI but I don't think that is quite true.The terrorist's metamorphosis was mainly focused and the sequence of scenes finally make us root for him.FBI ends up being the bad guy but I am sure that is what they tried to portray and they succeeded. I give 6/10.
A must watch
