The Terminator (1984)
Nobody goes home, nobody else comes through. Its just him - and me
The Terminator is definitely one of the best Science fiction films ever made. A lot of people argue on which film is better Terminator 1 or Terminator 2, but in my opinion the first Terminator film is the better film. Although Terminator 2 (also 3) were fantastic films with better action scenes and special effects than the first Terminator film, what I prefer about the first Terminator film is the good acting,(especially by Kyle Rees/Michael Biehn) sense of depth and storyline that the other two sequels lacked. What all three Terminator films had in common were that they had elements of Science Fiction and action in them, but what the first Terminator film had that the other sequels didn't have was that it had a romance element. The romantic side of this film is how Kyle Rees travelled back in time to meet Sarah Connor(to save her from the Terminator) and falling in love with one another, while conceiving their son John Connor during their short time together. This film is quite similar to the film 'Somewhere in Time' with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour for that film is also about a man who travels back in time to be with the women he loved.
The whole concept of how Kyle Rees was sent back in time from the year 2027 to the year 1984 to save Sarah Connors life from the Terminator and then impregnating her with John Connor (the Future Saviour) is a mind boggling concept. Where does it all begin and end? If Kyle Rees from the future didn't go back in time to the year 1984, John Connor would never have been, but yet it makes absolutely no sense WHATSOVER, that Kyle Rees could be his father considering the peculiar circumstances - however he was his father for unexplainable reasons. The story just goes round and round in circles. In answer to how John Connor was Kyle Rees' son was that the original John Connor from the year 2027 wasn't Kyle Rees' son as he was somebody elses son. When John Connor sent Kyle Rees to the year 1984 to save his mothers life from the Terminator, Kyle Rees accidentally corrupted history by impregnating Sarah Connor with their son John Connor, who of which wasn't the original John Connor. When Sarah Connor found out that she was pregnant with Kyles son, she mistakenly assumed that her unborn child was the saviour John Connor from the future - when he wasn't. The real John Connor would have been a son that she would have had with another man(In a different parallel universe) who of which was never born, for Kyle Rees prevented her from meeting him because he changed history by telling her about the future - as this somehow prevented her from meeting the father of the real future saviour John Connor and bearing him as there son. Thereafter the alternate John Connor who was conceived from Kyle Rees became the new future Saviour only because his mother prepared him for it and because he wanted to live up to his mothers death wish. Its all quite complicated; the whole sequential repetitive cycle of Kyle Rees going back in time to the year 1984 and then another 44 years passes to the year 2027 and then Kyle rees travels back to the year 1984 is a never ending cycle, as its an infinite cycle that goes round and round in circles forever. The first cycle of the original undisrupted John Connor who sent his Sergeant (not father) Kyle Rees to the year 1984, was in fact the only undisrupted future history cycle that happened. However, every other time travel sequence that goes on and on forever in time travel circles that occurred after that original time travel cycle, was in fact the disrupted time travel cycles with the alternate John Connor in a new and changed parallel universe - this is as explained all due to Kyle Rees accidentally altering history. Considering the alternate John Connor took over from the original John Connor who of which got erased from time all due to Kyle Rees, one could say that the original John Connor never even existed - but yet he did! He lives in the lost dimensions/parallel universe of time.
As this film is Science fictional, romantic and action based it caters for many types of viewers, whether you're a love-sick girl/ women, a person who is action thirst or just somebody with a good imagination for imaginative people, like myself, do tend to love science fiction films.Anyway, if you haven't seen this film, I strongly suggest you to watch it, for this film is non stop action, has great film atmosphere and had a great and original storyline
Rocky III (1982)
He's a killer...he's a wrecking machine. He'll knock you out inside of three rounds Rock.
The film Rocky 3 was definitely, in my opinion, the best Rocky film of all time. Some people might argue with this by saying that Rocky 1 was the best as it showed the rise of Rocky in boxing and the romantic side from when he fell in love with Adrian, others might prefer Rocky 2 for when Rockys son was born, doing his TV commercial advertisement and when he became the Heavy weight champion of the world, while others might prefer Rocky 4 after the coming of boxer Ivan Drago, the sadness of Apollo Creed dying and when Rocky travelled to Russia.
Although most of the Rocky films were spectacular, I have to say that Rocky 3 compared to the other Rocky films had so much more to offer compared to the other Rocky films as it was action packed and ongoing excitement all the way through the film. It had Rockys boss Micky dying, Mr.T and Hulk Hogan(and Wrestle-mania),the building of Rockys statue, it had Rocky losing everything and then getting it all back again and the brilliant one line quotes (ie. When the newscaster said to Clubber lang "Whats your prediction for tomorrow nights fight"... Clubber Lang replies "Prediction"...Newscaster replies "Yes Prediction"... Clubber Lang replies... PAIN!! and from when Clubber Lang says to Rockys wife "If you bring your pretty little self on down to my apartment tonight, I will show you a real man etc...) and not to mention the fact that this film had three fights while every other Rocky film had a maximum of two fights. Also for Rocky Balboa(Sylvester Stallone)to fight in the ring two hard man icons such as Mr. T and Hulk Hogan is quite a spectacular challenge for one Rocky film to offer as no other Rocky film has ever matched up to it.
If you haven't seen the Rocky films, then watch Rocky 3, followed by the first two Rocky films for I gaurantee you that if you like boxing films, you will definitely like Rocky 3.
Although the original Psycho film with Anthony Perkins was by far the superior Psycho film, I found that this Psycho remake film was in many ways a brilliant remake film of the original Psycho film. What I most liked about this film was the superior acting of Vince Vaughn for I honestly believe that no other actor could have done the job as good as him. Before I saw Vince Vaughn in this film I'v always perceived Vince Vaughn as to before an empty, shallow and hollow actor who could only act as one role which is - himself, but after I saw Vince Vaughn act in this film I now have a completely different view of him for the part he played as Norman Bates being a weird, recluse loner type was so convincing I can now honestly say that in my opinion Vince Vaughn is a remarkable actor.
Overall, I'd recommend anybody to watch this film for if you liked the original Psycho film, you'll definitely like this one.
From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)
Richie, would you do me a favour and eat my p*s*y for me...please?
The film 'From Dusk till Dawn' is a fantastic film for the excellent choice of actors, great soundtrack and extreme storyline made this film into a one of a kind. I can understand, however, a person not liking this film, but in order to appreciate this film you have to have the right mindset. By doing so you must realise that you can't take this film seriously and that its just another typical black horror Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarentino film. What I love about this film is how extreme the storyline changes on how an ordinary family gets kidnapped by wanted criminals, Seth Gecko(George Clooney) and Richard Gecko (Quentin Tarantino) and is forced by these criminals to smuggle them in their camper-van over the Mexican border and how the story changes from that to blood sucking vampires killing everybody in the Mexican biker nightclub. I quite like this style of directing for the director Stanley Kubrick has a similar directing approach, for many of his films story lines do tend to rapidly change half way through the film in the same way. Another directing trademark that Robert Rodriguez and Stanley Kubrick have in common, that I'm quite entertained by is the micro-second subliminal film shots that was filmed in this movie, in which the same micro-second subliminal filming was also done in Stanley Kubricks film 'A Clockwork Orange' This happened when Seth Gecko(George Clooney) walked into the motel room and viewed the woman hostage lying dead on his bed, in which his brother Richard gecko (Quentin Tarantino) had just raped and killed.
The actors Juliette Lewis(Kate Fuller), George Clooney(Seth Gecko), Quentin Tarantino(Richard Gecko and Harvey Keitel(Jacob Fuller) are ideal actors for this film. What intrigues me about Harvey Keitel, George Clooney and Juliette Lewis is not the fact that their good actors, but is how confident their acting is, for in my opinion these actors (and a few other actors) are three of the most confident actors in Hollywood. What I like about Quentin Tarantino is that although he's not a great actor, the role that he does play in this film (and others) he does well at, for his eccentric acting, humour and wacky outlook makes me love watching him in films. Anyway if you haven't seen this film, I suggest you to watch it, for if you like George Clooney and Harvey Keitel you'll definitely like this film.
Frankenstein Created Woman (1967)
She was ugly....ALL TWISTED!!!
The film 'Frankenstein created woman' is a film about a man named Hans (Robert Morris) who is wrongly accused of murder and is sentenced to death by Guillitine. After his execution a man named Dr.Baron Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) borrowed his body for an experiment, capturing his soul and transferring it into Hans girlfriends body - who of which drowned herself after Hans was executed. When (Christina Cleeve) she awoke with her new soul, she went out on a limb to track down the three men who were the real murderers and kill them.
This film is fantastic and superb in every way for its great plot, good acting and mysterious/dark atmosphere helped make this film into my favourite vengeance movie of all time. What I love mostly about this film was how cunning and devious Christina Cleeve was when she was seducing the three real murderers, who were responsible for Hans' death for her outstanding beauty and adulterous charm was so captivating it seemed like she was of the devil. Another scene I quite admired that contributed towards the spookiness of this film was when Christina was talking to Hans' cut-off head in her bedroom and taking verbal orders from it on who she should kill next. There were, however, certain aspects in this film I didn't fully understand. When Hans was in court being charged with murder, why didn't he use his girlfriend Christina as an alibi for she was with him when the victim was murdered; Was it because he was embarrassed for people to know that he was acquainted with her (as she was deformed and twisted at the time) or some other reason. What ever reason it was, I'm sure it wasn't worth being executed for. Another bit I didn't understand was how Christina Cleeve knew who the real murderers were when she awoke with Hans' soul because Hans never knew who they were. Anyway, if you haven't seen this film, do watch it, for its an outstanding production and if you like 'Terence Fisher' films, you'll definitely like this one.
Another 'Alfred Hitchcock' Classic
The film 'Frenzy' is about a normal seeming man named Robert Rusk(Barry Foster) that goes on a murderous rampage around London raping and killing women by strangling them with neckties after he violates them. A man named Richard Blaney was witnessed to be near the scene of the crimes and gets pinned as the murderer - and thereafter gets tried in court, on whether or not, he's the murderer.
This film is one of my favourite films of all time. What I love about Alfred Hitchcocks style and directing in 'Frenzy' is the realism of how he shoots his scenes. The scene when Robert Rusk strangles the woman with a necktie and her tongue was sticking out of her mouth was so realistic because when a person gets killed in that way - their tongues do actually stick out of their mouth. I'v seen other films in which people have died by strangulation, but their tongues have never stuck out of their mouth. Why, because those other film directors didn't look into the reality of what happens when a person gets strangled - unlike Alfred Hitchcock. What I also love about this film is the brilliant choice of actors for Barry Foster was the perfect choice to play the role of Robert Rusk for his good looks, sophistication and superb acting helped make this film into what it is. Why I reckon his image suited the part of Robert Rusk is because a lot of British olden day serial killers from that day, usually did seem like average normal people.
This film 'Frenzy' was exciting from beginning to end. I love the bit when he strangled the woman and dumped her in the potato truck and then afterwards realising that he left his tie pin with her and then having to track the potato truck down to retrieve it - so it wouldn't be used against him as forensic evidence. That was one of the funniest bits of the film. Anyway, if you haven't seen this film, I suggest you to watch it, for its a film thats way ahead of its time, as most Alfred Hitchcock films are and has a great and exciting atmosphere all the way through the film.
Back to the Future Part III (1990)
The worst 'back to the future' film ever made!
Back to the future (Part 3) started off really good, but went down-hill as the film went on. In between the scenes when Marty was recovered in the McFly home in 1885 by his great great grandparents and when Marty arrived back home to the year 1985 I found this film quite boring, but before and after those scenes, I found this film quite entertaining.
In all three Back to the Future films there's sequences in which Marty and his descendants/ancestors are being confronted in a cafe/bar by Biff and his descendants/ancestors as well as when Marty injures himself and ends up being recovered in his mothers/great great grand mothers home and including a few other examples. I quite like this repeated sequence in the first two films, but seeing it again in the third film simply bored me, for its as though the same old storyline in all three films is being regurgitated over and over again with no originality whatsoever.
If you think about it, there's no reason why Marty should have been temporarily stuck in the year 1885. The fact that Marty and the Doc couldn't fuel-up the delorean as there was no fuel(gas) facility in the year 1885 shouldn't have been a problem. Why - because if Doc Brown was able to write Marty a letter from the year 1885, for Marty to receive in the year 1955, and as a result of the letter Marty then went back in time to the year 1885, he could of also easily written another letter to Marty to receive in the year 1955 saying 'Oh yeah and by the way bring an extra supply of gas(fuel) when you visit me in the year 1885 for its the only way we can get back home to the future'. If he wrote that letter the moment he'd given it to Western Union postal Service, the fuel would have instantaneously appeared with them in the year 1885 and they would have been able to get back home to the year 1985, without going though the hassle of being pushed by a runaway train in order to get up to 88 miles per hour. This is just one example on how this film didn't make sense as there are many more examples similar to this one that I won't get into. One good element about this film is how it shows how bad things happen for a reason. When Marty went back in time and changed his parents destiny from being losers to winners, he not only changed his families past and present lives, but he also changed his families future - but for the worst. Seeing as Marty changed his fathers destiny, as a result of this change his father George McFly didn't loan his 4 by 4 jeep to Biff, for which Biff would've smashed up in a car accident in the parallel universe for when George was afraid of Biff. If Marty didn't change his fathers destiny, his father George McFly would've loaned the jeep to Biff out of fear and the car would've have been totalled in a car crash. That car was destined to crash! so that Marty and his girlfriend Jennifer wouldn't have used it that night to go camping, in which they wouldn't have crashed it out of a dare from Douglas Needles to go drag racing - leaving their and their children's lives in ruins, for which this car crash led to a result of their children being arrested in the year 2015, however their children's problems in the year 2015 was fixed when Marty and the Doc changed it for when they travelled into the future to the year 2015. It goes to show that although Marty did change his families lives for the better, in the long run it would have been better if he had left things the way they were. Destiny is set for a reason, whether its good or bad.
I think making a third sequel to this film was a good idea, but I think it would have been a lot better if the director of this film made this sequel completely different from the first two films. A good idea would have been if Marty and the Doc were travelling all over time to different years doing whatever they want and meeting up with themselves in the same year that they've visited more than once without worrying about a time travel paradox. In my opinion this film could have improved, but even though I feel this way I'd recommend anyone to watch it, for it did have some good moments and if you've seen the first two 'Back to the Future' films you've gotta see this film in order to complete the trilogy.
The Breakfast Club (1985)
The next screw that falls out is going to be you!
The Breakfast club is one of the best teen movies ever made. Although this film is low budget, I found this film to be very precise and realistic to what high school environments are all about. Its about five high school students that attend a high school detention session one Saturday and all became good friends by the end of the session.
What I found realistic about this film is how the director John Hughes managed to include every social class that children have in the high school environment. You've got Brian Johnson (Michael Anthony Hall) the nerd, John Bender(Judd Nelson) as the rebel punk, Claire Standish(Molly Ringwold) as the prude, Allison Reynolds(Ally Sheely) as the weirdo and Andrew Clarke (Emilio Estevez) as the jock. You even have Richard Vernon as the strict angry teacher(Paul Gleason) which stereotypes a typical example of an American teacher. What I also liked about this film was the brilliant acting, especially Judd Nelson who played John Bender for without him this film wouldn't have been half as good as it was. Although he was a punk, I found his persona quite cool and yet funny in the ways he behaved with his piers and his teacher Richard Vernon. Even though John Bender was in the wrong with Mr. Vernon and how Mr. Vernon got the best of him, I did respect John for standing up for himself against his teacher and for getting the best of Mr. Vernon by escaping from the room he was locked up in by Mr. Vernon and without Mr. Vernon knowing about it. I loved the scene when he yelled out to Mr. Vernon f**k you when Mr.Vernon left the room.
Anyway, if you haven't seen this film then you should definitely watch it, for I believe the moral of this film is that whatever social class your apart of whether your a nerd, a jock, a prude, a weirdo or a rebel, we're all the same, no persons better than the next.
The Boys Next Door (1985)
They gave them two seconds of pain when they themselves have had 18 years of pain
The boys next door is about two angry psychotic teenagers called Roy Alston(Maxwell Caulfield) and Bo Richards (Charlie Sheen) that go on a killing spree in Los Angeles one weekend and killing anybody that comes their way. I admit this film in many ways is quite twisted, but I can't help liking it for its action scenes, good acting, great soundtrack, humours moments and witty one-liners made this film what it is. I found it somewhat odd that Roy Alston(Maxwell Caulfield) and Bo Richards (Charlie Sheen) were so despised by their school mates because to me they seemed like pretty cool guys, a lot cooler than that nerdy Joe Gonzales who everybody loved who had a party at his house. Does that make sense - I don't think so.
There was a period when the film became quite stagnant; In between the scenes after Bo and Roy left Homosexual Chris' apartment after murdering him and when Bo and Roy met Angie outside the pub this film went completely downhill, but other than that this film was great. The scenes when Roy was urinating in Joes swimming pool, when Bo and Roy accidentally walked into the gay bar and when Bo and Roy tricked their school mates into thinking someone was killed at the high school by outlining Bo's body on the road with chalk, I found absolutely hilarious. Once more the funny one-liners when Bo and Roy looked at the woman in the billboard poster and Roy said to Bo 'Look at that bitch - I bet she doesn't even exist'. Another good one-liner I liked was when the girl at the beach called Bo and Roy queers and Roy said to her in response 'Queer - we'll see who the queer is bitch', which he said just before he knocked her friend off the bonnet of his car by screeching to a halt. Anyway, if you haven't seen this film - go see it! for if you like Maxwell Caulfield and Charlie Sheen, you'll definitely like this film.
Rocky IV (1985)
The worst Rocky Film ever made
This film 'Rocky 4' started off really good for Ivan Drago is like no Boxer you've ever seen, for his freakish strength and powerful outlook was most scary and intimidating and it was also quite sad and emotional when he killed Apollo Creed in the ring, however as the film went on, it completely went down hill. Up until the point when Rocky and his family arrives in Russia this film was alright, but thereafter that scene this movie became dull and boring.
Not only I found this film boring, but I found the storyline completely ridiculous for there is no way that Rocky Balboa (The Italian Stallion) could have possibly defeated a powerhouse musclebound freak like Ivan Drago. If Ivan Drago was strong enough to kill Apollo Creed in the ring than there is no way that Rocky Balboa could have possibly beaten Ivan Drago. In fact, he's lucky to have even survived the fight.
As a Rocky fan, i've enjoyed all the films except parts 2 and 4 but if you haven't seen parts 2 and 4 I recommend you to watch them anyway because although they were boring films, you need to watch them in order to understand where the next Rocky sequel is coming from.
