Space Cop (2016)
The Bad, The Worse and The Tribute
It is strange how in a rare occasions when I watch some movie all I can think of, as movie progresses, how I'm going to write IMDb review and this is one of these times. Now everybody that watches this movie is kind of a fan of guys from RLM and I know their fascination with bad movies to which this is tribute to, but even those bad movies, that RLM people watch, are trying to be good movies, but are made by people who don't know how to make a movie and they end up bad. In other words bad movies are made by people that believe in what they're doing, have at least some amount of ambition, usually wanting to push some sort of idea out there that will make people think or entertain. "Space Cop" is not. RLM guys end up looking like they're too good or just to cynical to even try to think of some story, not to mention good story or screenplay and dialogue (yes the dialogue is so bad that even actors after they say their lines look at themselves in wonder how awful it is).
One of the main jokes is that SF movies usually fail at science, no matter how expensive they are, but RLM fails to see that even when science doesn't make sense in movies it doesn't matter to viewers because they care about the story and characters. While here you have sets that look like clumps of garbage with people speaking equally appalling dialogue and utterly stereotypical characters. Of course to mention how bad acting is is too pretentious of me because RLM guys are too "beyond that" - you see the cynicism.
What they did seem to succeed somewhat is music. Soundtrack is trying to sound like John Carpenter's music and it is a decent little tribute.
What it all comes down to is that RLM guys love movies and they sometime even speak of watching good movies like the ones Truffaut made, so when you watch this the only thing that goes trough your mind is "Why would anyone intentionally waste their time making such cynical muck?" It's like Harry asking Lloyd in trailer for "Dumb and Dumber To" if he was faking insane paralysis for 20 years just to troll people.
Or maybe it's just another one of those by bi-products by famous youtubers that make an awful "book" or an awful "movie" to cash in on their fame while it's still here.
Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 (2014)
Empire Strikes Back!!
In the first movie our heroes recognized the danger and made a great victory against dark forces, but this time they learn the dark forces and it's allies are much bigger and vaster then they expected. They receive some hard blows and while they managed to achieve some victories blows left them still heavily bruised, restrained and ashamed from the battles and vastness of unexpected evil. And indeed Joe is visiting back some of the battlegrounds, Phil is left "frozen in the carbonate" waiting for his princess Leia. We can all assume they are recuperating for the big last battle. So I can expect that the third movie will be named "Fat Sick & Nearly Dead 3: The Return of the Juicer"?
Samâ sorujâ (1972)
I really loved this movie
I found this movie really interesting and captivating because it was about people lost in a foreign country which culture and way of life was so different from theirs that they would almost never get accustomed to live comfortably in. So they are faced with probably lifetime of drifting like a human rat on the streets of one of Earth's capital or going back to indescribably senseless and pointless horror of war. So are they brave? Are they cowards? Are they insane or normal? Are they ready to become insane to live in a normal world? Captivating look of bare human needs between nations when all masks are downed and human is open like a garden who's main need is to cultivate the plants of emotions.
H.R. Giger Revealed (2010)
How do you make a documentary about a person who desperately wants to be very secretive about himself? Well you bring few people, mostly artists, to speak how great artist Giger is and how he will no doubt be worshiped in a future as an overlooked genius. The lowest point of documentary was when they brought astrologist to talk how special Giger is because of planet alignment that took place on the date of his birth. While all the time Giger himself is lurking in the background as some sort of shadow so in the end you get a movie that looks like TV commercial for one of those a new age preachers.
Which is a real shame because Giger seems to be an interesting person who made an impact in popular culture especially in the movies and video games. So it would of been really interesting if they actually talked to Giger himself about his background, his life and numerous movie projects he was involved of which many failed to be made like Coppola's produced SF movie "Tourist" or the "Dune". And I don't see why they didn't do that because from his cult book "Necronomicon" he doesn't seem to be so secretive since he shares some old photos of his childhood and earlier years with captions, but only if you understand German.
I guess this movie can only be interesting to Giger himself when he feels murky he just pops it in his DVD player and watches this self-indulgent rant-a-thon.
Alvin Purple (1973)
This is the first sex comedy I ever watched in my life. Sure I watched a lot of films that considered themselves as sex comedies but there was no sex in them, just some goofy romance. Sure there were some of those teen sex movies that came close but this movie is about adults has a lot of sex and it's very funny.
I also think this is very good Don Juan movie, I mean it's heck of a lot better then that "Don Juan" movie with Johny Depp. Besides what I also enjoy about Australian movies is that they are not pretentious. They are not burdened with the notion "Will it get an award on some movie festival or not." No! This movie doesn't care about that, it doesn't try to be something more than it is. I watched a lot of those "coming of age" movies when you see some fellow's sudden sexual awakening and then director gets to much worked up over it and tries to be a philosopher about how people change when they loose their virginity. But not this movie, which thankfully delivers more than those movies can hope to.
