The Gambler (2014)
so most people didn't get it.....at all
I saw this movie because i read the comments here on IMDb. I love to decide by myself about "uneven" matters and so I did. Surprised but the depth, I'm writing this review.
No, this movie is NOT about a self-destructive man. It's not at all about a gambling problem either. I really don't understand how people can pick up the shallow side dish and translate it into a main course. Those people will probably don't understand what I'm writing here either. If you're blind, will it help if I give you a pair of very strong glasses?
You'll need to look past the gambling to see the true meaning. This movie is deeper then it first seems but do give it a chance to present the feeling of importance, the importance of values, the value of freedom, the freedom of feeling and of course a very well put "fuck you".
I gave it an 8/10 because of some lacking elements and a bit of bitter Hollywood mark (you'll know when it comes). Good job. Nice surprise.
Mo 6/5 pak ma tha phi (2013)
...and there i was, laughing
I didn't know anything about this movie when i watched it. I thought it was a horror movie so my expectations pointed toward the genre.
The beginning seemed like a B horror movie and i felt disappointed since i was in a different mood. Also acting was bellow average. I've been disappointing before and i have learned to have patience when it comes to movies. So i kept watching.
I'm happy i did. After a while i understood where this movie was taking me and after it revealed it's true nature both i and my girlfriend were turning from laughter. Not all the time but enough to keep us watching.
Keep in mind this is a Thai movie and if you're not used to Asian movies, it will be harder to lose yourself properly.
Give it a chance. I'm glad i did.
Let me begin by writing this; this film is a straight ripoff. "The Raid: Redemption" came out 2011 and was a punchy success with a fantastic new taste. Apparently too good to be left alone...
So it's clear to me all the budget money went to special effects. The characters are weak, the story is a bad ripoff with big holes and missing valid points and there are no surprises whatsoever.
It might be entertaining for some but as i already mentioned, it's nothing for those who watched "The Raid: Redemption".
Shame, i was hoping for some crazy action and nasty twists. Maybe Dredd 2 will deliver better...
Indeed for the ones owning an imagination
Yes, i can assure you this movie isn't for everyone. It's not a "give-it-all-away- in-the-first-scene-and-follow-the- hero-for-the-rest-of-the-movie-until-an-obvious-resolution". This is more of a "read-me-while-looking" movie. In other words you'll have to use your imagination to get ANYWHERE in this one. Being a totally uninformed viewer i was extremely disappointed after the first 10 minutes but i decided to give it a second chance since...well, yeah, it's a Cronenberg movie and that says a lot in my book of "intelligence-beyond-the-obvious". So down to rundown and point of view. Let it take your mind on a journey or let your mind take this journey away from you. It's up to you really. Fasten your seat-belt....for either.
Thank you DC for one of this years best adventures....IMHO
A glance at the stupidity of human kind
This is not just another hi-tech film.
This film is at the same level as the original "The Day the Earth Stood Still" (1951) and should have been rated pretty much the same. Once again we are warned, once again we are shown the results of our stupidity and once again the warnings will flash before our eyes only to be forgotten shortly after.
My opinion doesn't matter. What matters is what people take with them after seeing this film. After reading the forums i shook my head and looked towards the heaven thinking "human kind can NOT be that ignorant". I wonder how much more is needed to open our eyes. How much more will our fellowmen suffer before we understand that single individuals create hordes of firing actions.
Even tho my mind tells me this comment won't change a thing, my heart is hoping that at least one reader will think further next time.
Fists of Righteous Harmony (2008)
well, well, you got me...
I ran into this film and as i always do, i read about it here. There was 11 votes and this film had a rating of 9.6/10. Well, i thought i could give it a chance...my biggest mistake this year...no, the last 10 years actually.
The crew can't act, can't talk properly, the cutting, the choreography, absolutely everything is one huge mess. I had a feeling i was watching a school project on YouTube and an awfully bad one too.
I didn't noticed one very important fact before i decided to see this...project. This is Aaron Huisenfeldt's first film ever and yet he did pretty much everything in this film (eg. Director, Writer, Actor, Cinematographer, Producer, Editor, Visual Effects, Special Effects, Sound Department and more..).
Metin Gungor has worked with visual effects in couple of my favourite films so my hope lied with him. My mistake.
Voting should be forbidden for crew members!
0/10 if i could...
The Ant Bully (2006)
Wonderful and instructive
I had no expectations since i haven't read anything about this movie except for the fact it was an animated children movie. As soon as i was done watching it i started to write this comment.
The story is imaginary as it should be in this type of film, the animations are wonderful and characters are just perfect.
I love the sub content which is very instructive for children specially this days where selfishness is the most usual quality for us human beings.
I recommend this movie to every parent as well. We must not forget that our children are the adults of tomorrow.
The Cat in the Hat (2003)
My god, what a disappointment (even for the children)!
This really is one of those movies that you´ll never forget, but not in a good way.
The first thing that i came to think of when i begun to watch this movie was "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" with Jim Carrey. It was´nt great, but at least, Carrey did a nice(funny) job as The Grinch.
This movie is horrible and i give most of the credits for that to Mike"i-should-end-my-career-after-Shrek" Myers. Maybe he should keep on doing voices in cartoons.
I saw "Cat in the hat" even though i knew the rates was´nt good. IMDB User Rating: 2.8 My Rating: 2. And why not 1? Because the rest of the crew did a decent job.
Edward Scissorhands (1990)
Tim Burton is the only one that could create such magic.
Minor Spoilers in Part1
Edward Scissorhands is a beautiful yet disturbing movie about a character that steps out of darkness and isolation straight into lives of some small town folks. Through his odd "talent" he makes his way into peoples hearts and discovers a new and wonderful side of life....but, as always, there is ignorance and enviousness.
Tim Burton could not make it better then this. The environment, the colors, the music, the characters, everything is just perfect. Your heart will never stop pounding. You will laugh, you will cry, you will smile, but you will NEVER forget this movie. Pure magic!
9/10. Go Mr.Burton! :)
Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)
Not even half as good as "LADY SNOWBLOOD"
This is Quentin Tarantino´s very poor attempt to make an Hollywood version of "Lady Snowblood". I was extremely disappointed wen i saw "Kill Bill Vol.1" and there are many reasons why.
The Reasons Vol.1
According to some sources, this movie was inspired by a great Japanese movie "Lady Snowblood". The story is´nt exactly the same, but close enough. Music and environment are very similar, but then "Lady Snowblood" have something that "Kill Bill" does´nt. Meiko Kaji, who plays the revenging women is about 300 times better actress then "Uma-i-should-be-a-waitress-Thurman".
The Reasons Vol.2
Quentin has become a "Hollywoodirector". Same as John Woo and other great directors, he forgot what he was doing in the beginning. The money is killing these guys and the great art that they have been doing for so many years.
The Reasons Vol.3 (!!Spoilers!!)
One big annoying flaw. How is it possible for a white girl to kill an Asian assassin, who has been trained since god know how many years?
Well, i could write all knight, but i hope that you people understand one thing. This should be a samurai movie and the ONLY thing that make this movie worth watching is Lucy Liu. She´s just perfect!!
