Children of the Corn (2009)
For a Syfy Original, I actually have to rate this rather highly. In my life have have seen some terrible terrible films (Bloodrayne anyone?), and this I most certainly would not count among them. Based on a short story by Steven king, and closer to the original story, this film focuses on an a husband and wife who have a rather... estranged relationship, who are moving to a new place in an attempt to sort out their marital issues. Along the way they get into an argument while the husband is driving, and accidentally hit a boy who stumbles out into the road, holding his throat, leading them into a situation where something is most certainly rotten in the state of Denmark, and by the time they begin to realize what is going on around them, it may already be too late. Now this is not a perfect film by any means, so don't watch it expecting emmys, there are moments when the dialogue could indeed have been done better, but it is not so low as to make it unwatchable, and the bickering between the husband and wife does seem a bit much at times, though its nothing that doesn't actually happen in the real world. But the acting quality was surprising, especially on behalf of the children, I was impressed. All in all, I would recommend watching it at least ONCE. This is one of those movies that either you like, or you don't, but I can guarantee you its not the "worst movie EVER made, as some of you will read other stating, (there's always at least one), so please ignore the naysayers and take a look for yourself. Overall, I was pleased, though I felt a little let down at points, and really pleased at others. I give it an 8 out of ten In part for the camera work, effectiveness of shots and music, and for not actually being the usual Syfy letdown, it is a little higher than I would normally rate it, but the movie needs a boost.
Ben 10: Race Against Time (2007)
I paid money for this!!!!!!
I PAID MOENY FOR THIS!!!! WHY IN GODS NAME DID I PAY MOENY FOR THIS!!!!!!!
Okay first of all it starts off okay but the fight sequences where a bit too power rangers, then the plot comes along, which was poorly written especially at the end, where they seem to abandon all logic, really I've defended some bad movies, but wow, at least the original series seemed to have a bit more in the characters, and the feeling that there was something bigger going on, this one was.... i'm not sure how to explain it, and no this isn't supposed to be an in depth review but mostly just me letting out my shock at how utterly BAD this movie was, and if the rumor i heard about a 5 million dollar budget is true, I'm in shock, its one hour and 7 minutes of wasted time, except for a couple of entertaining character, namely the principal and the oriental plumber, who's name i cannot remember right now, there have been WONDROUS movies made for only a few hundred thousand dollars, the fact someone thinks this movie wasn't bad for one with ONLY 5 mill has sad illusions about film-making, truly, i cannot believe this, even my 12 year old SISTER was disgusted by this movie, the original series was compelling and interesting, this started with about half that, but i was still going to give it a chance, but by the end, when the acting and plot just abandoned most everything that had been set up.... grrrrrrr..... I Just CANT Believe THIS, i have defended many movies that people have claimed where bad, even Alone in the dark (not great, but okay, there have been worse movies, trust me I've seen them)... BUT WOW.... I PAID MONEY for this and TRULY feel betrayed here..... normally i don't mind it.... but wow i LOVE the animated series, this....... i don't know what to call it... ruins that... *sighs* Okay rants done.
