Crop And Save
Very cheap look and feel
After I searched online for some 'best series ever' I stumbled upon "Jericho". The series was compared with on of my all time favorite shows "Lost". Last night I watched 3 episodes and oh boy was I disappointed! You see, I love post apocalyptic drama, so it's not that I don't have the fantasy to embrace far-fetched stories. But "Jericho" has a very cheap look and feel. There is this scene when the locals see a nuclear polluted rain storm is heading their direction. Guess what? The sun keeps shining bright like never before in outdoor scenes. And this mother who keeps saying to her sons and husband "promise me you come home safe" like 5 times in each episode. Not to mention the cliché music score that sounds like it came along with a 50 bucks video edit program. OK, well, overall it was so predictable that I wished I hadn't spent a whole evening of my life on this crap.
If you like misery just because of misery, then you might like this movie. But I hated it and stopped watching after 40 minutes. What's the point of this swearing all the time? In each sentence the word f*ck is used numerous times. I don't care if this is realistic, it's just plain silly and boring. The scenery and the photography is also not impressing at all. Everything is ugly in this world. I don't mind ugly things, in fact I can enjoy them but please balance them with beauty. But that's something the English don't understand, they like to loose themselves in their own depressing environment. The more you suffer, the better. And this stupid woman who lets herself verbally abuse in her poor shop...oh come on, kick that bastard out!
An old fashioned Christian view on life, I can't believe this is produced in 2011?
Dark Country (2009)
Thrilling story and gorgeous styling
After enjoying television series Hung with Thomas Jane I decided to give this movie a try and it outdid my expectations. I loved it very much! Dark Country is quite different from most current horror movies because it's given a 1950's comic styling as well as film noir elements. The car scenes and landscapes are so beautiful, just like a painting. If you want to enjoy this, you have to open up for the imaginative intention of director, writer and actor Thomas Jane. The movie leans on American archetypes that Alfred Hitchcock also used, like the Good Citizen (gone lost) the Sad Blond, The Cop and even the All American Car and honors American film history and film heroes like Cary Grant and James Stewart.
