Crop And Save
Fei ying gai wak (1991)
This film is for six year olds
Well, I don't mean to sound so ignorant but that's how I feel after watching this piece of crap. The humour is like something you'd find in a kids show. Incredibly cheesy and corny (mmmm...cheesecorn). The two women ruin the film. They're seriously annoying. All they do is is moan and run and slap men. One of them looks just like my cousin. Who ironically has made a habit of slapping my face and once made me lick her toes on the count of losing a bet. But, anyway, as I was saying...this film sucks.
The Boston Strangler (1968)
Kind of a bore, but still has great directing and great acting
I've always seen Tony Curtis as Joe/Josephene from Some Like It Hot. I watched The Boston Strangler to get a chance to watch him outside this role. The guy was amazing. Truly mesmerising, you can't take your eyes off of him and he carries his character so well. He shows both personalities superbly.
What can I say about the film? It dragged on for about an hour, till Curtis showed up I had a hard time watching. Even if you don't like it, you should still rexpect this film. It's made beautifully. The use of music -or no music to be precise- gives it a chilling sense. The spilt screen technique is masterful. You can see how it actually fits in with the story itself -how DeSalvo himself had a split personality. I used to think they didn't pull of techniques like this till the '90s. This film is way ahead of it's time.
The Godfather (1972)
I hated it in my first viewing
I thought it was boring, I lost interest barely half-way through. But I was determined to find out what everyone else (well, most people) saw in this. So I read the book by Mario Puzo so I could understand the story. After that came my second viewing and it was incredible. Never have I gone through such different emotions whilst watching just one film. I didn't want it to end. There's such coolness about Marlon Brando and Al Pacino's character. The score -especially the main theme- is brilliant. I had an awesome time watching this and instantly -and very proudly- declared this my #1 favourite. I plan to own it soon, and I can only hope it's as good on reruns.
North by Northwest (1959)
I'd hate to say this about a Hitch flick
This movie sucks. I can't explain how dissapointed I was with it. I'm a huge Hitchcock fan and I've heard people say that this is among his best. After weeks of unsuccessful attempts at finding it, I finally see it on video for a reasonable price. I couldn't wait to see this and when the time comes and I put it on all I get is over two hours of complete boredom. If James Stewart had been in this guess it would have been loads better. Cary Grant is so annoying with that wierd accent. And his mother looked years younger than him. This film has a bunch of corny romance jokes but no suspence or excitement. To cast this at #20 in IMDB's Top 250 is ridiculous. Overall, ** out of *****
Loaded Weapon 1 (1993)
Samuel L. Jackson makes this great
I don't think this film would have been as good without Jackson. All the hilarious parts have him in them. The bit where he's takin' a s*** and Estevez comes in, his flashbacks, the way he looks at the freckled chick, the Head and Shoulders bit, and so on. There are a few lame jokes here and there but I still consider this a great comedy. You'll love it if you liked the Naked Gun films and such.
The Wayans Bros. (1995)
Started out decent then went bad
Around the first 5-10 episodes of The Wayans Bros. were okay. Back then it was just Shawn, Marlon, Pops, and Lisa as the main characters. I enjoyed the show much more then. It was a little like Kenan and Kel only with better acting and less annoyingness. Then they went ahead and got rid of Lisa and bought in new characters. They also changed the diner, too. It also seems they didn't have a proper decision on the characters they want. For instance, they replaced Lou with Dee (and that sucks!). I know this show is from eight years ago but I've only just got down to watching it as Trouble have started showing it daily. They pull of a funny laugh-out-loud joke every now and then but the show to me was much better in the beginning.
Ging chaat goo si (1985)
Geez. How old are you guys?
Coz I don't see how anyone with any sense can actually like this film. It's incredibly stupid and embarassing. Maybe I'm only saying that coz I watched the American dubbed version, but that still doesn't change my opinion. Even my nephew -who's a hugh Jackie Chan fan- hated it. This film would have worked LOADS better if they hadn't tried to make it funny. The only parts worth watching are the action scenes. The bus chase is impressive so is the mall scene at the end. That is it. ** out of *****.
The Elephant Man (1980)
Most underated film ever
This film just isn't getting the recognition it deserves. I had not even know about The Elephant Man till a short while ago, and I consider myself to be a movie buff. No doubt this is the most emotional film I have ever seen. I could not stop feeling depressed for weeks. In fact, because of this I'm afraid to see it again. What struck me the most was to learn by the end that it's based on a true story. Heartbreaking stuff. Everyone needs to see this. It should be shown in schools more often so people would learn to respect those different from them.
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Brilliant....but not scary
I just don't find zombies that scary. Okay, maybe I was a little scared, but not terrified. Frankly, I think I could kick some zombie butt if they were real. But that's not the point. I love watching this movie everytime they show it on TV. But not for the gore, I just think it's an interesting film. I've always liked that conversation where they argue over which room they should stay in. One of my all-time favourite films. Best zombie flick ever.
Great film, very underated
People just don't appriciate this film enough. It's not exactly Shakespeare (you know where I'm getting at LOL), but very enjoyable nonetheless. Eddie Murphy did an awesome job as Kit Ramsey's brother. That interview scene is the best. All the secondary characters were great. The idea is very original and done well. The ending is fantastic, one of my personal favourites.
