Dawn of the Dead (2004)
Dawn of the average film...
I had insanely high hopes for this movie when I first saw the trailer a month and a half ago. I don't know exactly what I expected, but I think I expected to much.
In one of the first scenes, we see a girl skating away into the sunset, we know trouble lurks ahead. That's fine and dandy, foresight, it's all good, but this movie ends up being so predictable in every scene to the point where it is boring. Granted, we do get a few good surprises, but every time someone goes off alone, you know a zombie will be somewhere waiting. Every time you see a fail safe plan put in by the actors, you can almost forsee it verbatim, and that's what horror is not about. At least not to me. Maybe I was expecting an Evil Dead quality film.
But i'm not all dissatisfied, you see. The movie has style, humor and an overall feeling of hopelessness. The zombies look great and the special effects aren't bad. The actors, while convieniently labeled personality wise (or not developed at all) do a good, convincing job. I would recommend this to a horror fan in a second. But if your looking for the feeling that famous trailer gave you, you might want to go elsewhere.
Also, Johnny Cash, and Richard Cheese, the people who put this movie together have good taste in music.
Loaded Weapon 1 (1993)
Better than people give credit for...
This isn't Airplane!, The Man With Two Brains, , or any number of classic slapsticks, but it is up there, and it is funny. While it has its slow times, it still manages to make you laugh. Great one liners, and wonderful acting make it a solid and worthy buy. Everytime you watch it, you will find yet another smart-ass, sarcastic reply, an offbeat joke or an obscure parody. Loaded Weapon 1 hits and for 90% of the time doesn't miss. It honestly doesn't get enough credit.
