It's really cool to see the ritualistic circumstances that played out
in the late 1800s. Almost everything we deal with in in the modern day,
has somehow fulcrum from this time. From the birth of communism,
fascism, anarchists, evolutionists and imperialists. Dracula seems to
show facets of this important part of time in it's story lines
rewriting Bram Stoker's original manuscript.
The industrial revolution spurs out of the dust of the needs for better technology to create better killing machines and weapons in the waning years of the the American Civil war gave birth to the military industrial complex. Thus begins the reign of assumed power and terror of the secret societies unleashing their plans from the dawn of their ages controlling the masses with ritualistic religions.
This show, like the Borgias, which have probably utilize a lot of the same style Hungarian production crews, evoke the essence of what really was the cause of most wars and power struggles from this critical point in the late 19th century. And even though this fictional story originally set forth by B.Stoker, the writing crew of this modern day Dracula remake, really dig down to show why things happened the way they did. Now we can finally sense the motives of the order or the Draco and why Dracul the Impaler seeks his vengeance upon those who destroyed him centuries ago. Just like what the puppet Governments do to their time sensitive strategic placed dictators, so was Dracula also a highly decorated knight to their cause centuries ago. Only to be sacrificed to their master plan to eventually control all the money and power and masses of the whole world.
Really good and interesting stories written that can go on for quite a few episodes here. I am excited to see it get better and better. I hope I am right.
Holy acting miracles Batman! This movie took it to a level twelve on a
realistic scale as to normal human interaction. Yeah I agree it was one
freak accident after another when it came to Toby McGuire's character,
the bipolar neighbor, and the incredible sets of circumstances, the
fetish desires contemplated over bad Internet sites, and the natural
slowing of sexual desire in a marriage. This makes for a perfect
setting for an explosion of bad "Murphy's Law" type karma for a normal
type American guy that really never meant any harm to anyone. It's like
suddenly an 9 year old kid finds a stick of dynamite with a light-able
fuse on it. He knows somewhat better but suddenly he has the capability
to kill others and himself in his ignorance.
This movie is one of the best down to earth type stories, directed incredibly well, with a super talented cast of somewhat veteran actors. Well maybe not typical down-to-earth but one of those freak shows that really could happen to a normal type guy. Why this is a 6.2 I cannot understand. This is worth watching once a year for a few years in a row if you ask me. It's like a Film Noir version more likely titled "It's Not Such A Wonderful Life."
Oh yeah and Dennis Haysbert who played Lincoln blew my mind in his acting ability for this role. Actually everyone in this movie has at least one genuine perfect moment of genius acting somewhere in their character's portrayal in this movie. Again, its worth watching more than once...
Never could get into "Friends" so Perry was just part of the; whatever
cast of a highly rated, whatever, comedy. I just never did find the
"Oh, I am hot and cool and edgy, quick lipped sitcoms like, "How I Met
Your Mother", or "Happy Endings" or any comedy that has a freaking need
to shove some Hollywoody mainstream social agenda down my throat, ever
funny at all.
Herein lies a show that just deals with pure human relations and subjective emotional downfalls that we ALL GO THROUGH on a daily basis. Go On, trades edgy, with constructive sarcasm, and a just "look at myself in a mirror, we all have problems," overall attitude without going into the movie-type ridiculous unreal personality traits like you would see in a Happy Gilmore production. On the other hand, the first comedy movie, that I ever watched more than one time, was "The Whole Nine Yards." In this movie, Matt Perry first displayed this quirky but not annoying yet vulnerable and fairly intelligent dude that will not be totally be taken advantage of.
I see this same personality is in Go On, which I liked so much from the 2000 movie. So along with a phenomenal group of characters that are so well played with the likes of the kid from "Everybody Hates Chris" and Julie White, quite frankly, the whole cast is amazingly written and well directed. And goes without saying, is an incredibly well acted ensemble cast to the likes of a classic comedy like "Barney Miller" from the 70s. Go On is great show, that I hope will last at least 7 seasons or more. Love it! GT
I have never seen such a travesty of horrible Christian hate clichés in
ten movies put together, much less put all into one movie... Did this
prejudice as hell director have a wild hair up his butt or was he given
a propaganda type agenda to make it look like Christians were like
white supremacist type psychotic Nazis? Like these morons that raised
their poor kids by imposing totally regimented Catholic NOT EVEN
REMOTELY BIBLICAL self propagated concentration camp antics
brainwashing their kids to their own agendas. Makes Christians
basically look like a Jim Jones poison kool-aid cult followers.
Wow talk about reversal in roles..30 years ago they ostracized Christians hating Gays now it's like like the other way around totally... It's like you used to not admit you were Gay back then now you are afraid to admit you are Christian.... Scary movie indeed.... the evil spirits here were the movie producers for sure. Literally a nauseating movie much akin to when Mad Magazine makes horrid fun of first run movies. "Aaack!!" as Bill the Cat would say...
Wow, without giving away any spoilers here, just roughly speaking, this
was like they put together the worst clichés in all the action
adventure movies or even bad TV shows, that came out over the last 20
years - you could maybe be able to salvage like a " Scary Movie" or
"Hot Shots" type spoof type movie -- however Season of the Witch would
still blow chunks even if it tried to be made into a spoof.
Speaking of which (or is it witch), there is nothing even remotely humorous in this movie, just the standard blood and guts fighting with the most atrocious acting I have ever seen in a movie in years... I think even Vin Diesel could have maybe done a better job here than Cage... Holy molly, it was like watching a Saturday Night Live skit badly written. Mind blowing I actually made it to the end of the movie watching and writhing in Mad Magazine nauseousness. Nick Cage could actually be getting worse not better with experience if that is possible. I almost don't want to watch Sons of Anarchy this next year after Pearlman's cheesy sidekick acting either.
I think the robots from Mystery Science Theater 3000 need a crack at this horrid 40 million dollar lead balloon.
I guess I cannot agree with the ratings here on IMDb every time.
For example I just saw Scott Pilgrim vs. the World rated 8.0 then I seen this movie, Love Ranch only 5.3 -- and while the general public still seems to be in love with the youthful glee based in symbolic fantastic fake X-box gaming TRONlike facade of Scott Pilgrim, they seem to rank an incredible life scenario reality based movie, Love Ranch which is based on a couple in their sixties based on a true story, as it were borderline doggy do. Once again, I guess most movie goers would rather not handle the truth.
I must admit, when I was watching Love Ranch, I was reminded of the movie Papillon, in which they tried to fit a two week read into a two hour movie. I thought I was watching the same kind of movie making from a book being made into 2 hour script reducing it to bits and pieces of condensed scenes. But I guess it was merely a rushed screenplay and not a condensed book when I read about it on IMDb. I suppose part of the problem could have been the spontaneous direction in the seemingly rushed storyline.
Other than that I would give this movie with better editing and direction of script a 9 or 10 rating because the intense reality and grip of the characters like between Helen and the boxer. This was incredibly well done... may sometimes been kind of unbelievable, but in the end their impeccable acting crafts both pulled together a gripping story.
I think without a doubt it could and should have been handled better through production, but the movie itself is infinitely more meaningful than a teeny love triangular crap as in the movie I spoke of earlier.
All in all a great movie that needed to be nurtured a lot more to be made into a fantastic movie.
It had about three decent dialog lines here and there throughout the movie.. like the main posting on this flick... it was an iconoclastic bummer for us old GI Joe kids that grew up with the cool doll... As one guy states in his review, the special effects were okay but a dime a dozen now a days. What extreme crappy dialog... I think a 10 year old would get nauseous with the dung. I am amazed to see these actors doing their lines without cracking up... they must have needed the money but who doesn't these days... WOW it amazes me to see that they can do such a high budget film -- who the heck gets the go ahead for such dog puke screenplays.???
