The Destruction of a Fantastic Classic - A Flop
I believe the original Poltergeist is one of the best movies to come out of the 70's-80's. Original story, great casting, chemistry found in the actors. You find unexpected frills and chills, it's unpredictable and it makes you feel, happy, sad, outraged and scared. I was very excited when I saw the trailer for the 2015 version, I thought that with all the technology available to movie makers now a days it would make a jump that would be visually stunning. But it did not. It's like they threw the original script up in the air, it got shuffled, they picked it up and then made a movie out of those shuffled, discombobulated pages, couple that with poor acting and casting and you have a FLOP. What a shame. I look forward to the time when someone picks up this story and injects it with some true originality and talent. Until then, keep your money in your pocket.
Dumb and Dumber To (2014)
We walked out of this movie - surprised these quality actors lended themselves to this
We walked out of this movie - surprised these quality actors lended themselves to this. I have been a Jim Carrey fan for years and enjoyed all of his comedic movies to the point where we watch them several times, I never saw the original but decided to drop into this one last Saturday. We walked out less than 10 minutes after, nothing was funny, it was like they were trying to shock you into laughing by being offensive and just flat out stupid, it was like watching a retarded bully. If you want to laugh wholeheartedly, go elsewhere, this is like inserting your wet finger in an electricity socket and finding it amusingly enough to do it again.
Boring and done
I was really looking forward to this movie, lots of good reviews and of course, it's gay and I'm part of the LGBT community. The camera shots are good and it does manage to impart a certain "atmosphere" but I found it slow to develop and quite predictable when it did. I was overall a bit bored, so much so that it made me want to write my first review.
Saving graces: Interestingly shot. Rough and raw.
Downfalls: Don't expect anything new. Slow pace.
Would I recommend it? If you are gay and just love and support gay cinema. If you are looking for a down-tempo flick to kill the afternoon.
Very much looking forward to the time when LGBT cinema moves from the tired clichés and into something extraordinary.
