Movie 43 (2013)
I now know why...
Why 43 in the title? After witnessing this total train wreck, it's the rating the production company have expected to get on IMDb, seems now soo obvious...
Sudeikis made it look like a SNL spin-off that was so bad it didn't make the cut just before going on the air, which means here 'crappier than crap'. God, pls explain here - how Halle Berry could think of taking part in this lemon of a film by completely degrading herself this way? When making fun of a traumatising situation like a teen getting her first period, you need to make sure that their is a minimum of satire in it, which is totally evacuated by the - hum - script here. Once this segment is over, all we are left with is incomfort for the teenage girl and resentment toward the scriptors.
Overall, this film leaves you with the feeling that this actually could have worked if, 1st, we were still in 1982 when Kentucky Fried Movie & Amazon Women on the Moon were all over the place, and, 2nd, the too many flawed stories were supported, here and there, with some magic moments that sometimes awkwardly elevates the degree of humor - like, on Amazon Women, the st segment with Arsenio Hall was sooo powerfully hilarious that it made for a couple of boring moments to come later in the film.
A movie more boring than anything else, what a shame.
John Dies at the End (2012)
The slapstick horror/scifi legacy happens to be in good hands!
WOOOO-HOOOO - that was so much fun!!! First of all, thank you Mr Coscarelli for making this surreal cinematic ride happening. Need a sequel. Fast. Now.
OK, picture this: imagine a fairly high budget Twilight Zone episode that would include equal parts of Evil Dead, Scoobidoo & Buckaroo Banzaï, directed in the Troma mindset. I know!! Very much enjoyable.
Just the right amount of gory tricks, the perfect quantity of 'over the top' ridicules moments & evidently some plot holes to make the whole thing stick together. It's revisiting the slapstick horror/scifi genre so freshly that the feeling you get at the end is that you have actually witnessed a pilot-episode of a show to come: the setting, the background, the characters and the too many details- that we cannot break down here - makes you wanna beg for more.
I will now have a thought for this gem of a movie the next time I add some sauce to Asian food. Go see this movie.
