quiet waters are deep...
What a wonderful movie! A strangely perfect mix of horror, romance and drama. Angela Bettis plays beyond godly in this film, managing to garner the viewer's sympathy til the very end and proving great acting skills during the odd funny moments as well as the heartrending horrific ones.
Truly a rare example of when a director tries to mix horror with another genre and produces a masterpiece, instead of the confused, mediocre concoctions that seem to be the usual result of this sort of experimentation.
Definitely worth at least one watch!
Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei (2004)
awesome story for those who know, those who don't, and those who need to remember
I expected this movie to be good, and I was not disappointed. It's just the sort of movie we need in these times, with our apathetic, capitalist till death youth. It shows the ideals of revolutionaries of our times in a simple manner that people who aren't interested in politics and matters of the world can understand as well, whether they agree with them or not, and it also shows ways of dealing with these problems even if you're just a "small, insignificant" individual. Yes boys and girls, protests and revolutionary sabotage didn't stop in the seventies! I also love the way the three protagonists beat the stupid morals that almost broke them apart, and the open ending makes up for the slight unrealistic aspects that are also present at the finale. In short, this movie has everything - good acting, a gripping story and ideas that aren't new, but that people of today obviously need to be reminded of!
Session 9 (2001)
This movie is terrible. Major spoilers ahead.
I must say I was really disappointed with this movie. It had all the makings of a scary horror film (from my point of view at least); old abandoned mental hospital with a history of medieval and brutal curing methods, one of the guys working there finds tapes with recordings of old sessions with a schizophrenic woman who seems to have been involved in a grisly murder, the freaky looking electric chair on the cover that is also seen by one of the main characters in the beginning of the movie, hey, this oughta be great, right? Ummmmm nope.
To me it seemed like the maker of this movie himself was schizophrenic, one day wanting to make a scary horror movie and the next some sort of family drama. All the scary parts that could really have been evolved into a right shocker are somehow and strangely abandoned to tell us more about this guy's wife, or all of the workers sitting together talking about their lives and plans for the future. What the hell? We don't even get to see any kills or gory scenes, which try as you might convince me that "it's so much scarier if you can't *see* what's happening", would have at least saved this movie to a degree. The only emotion that this movie made me feel besides boredom was laughter (so that's an action not an emotion, sue me), due to the infamous "F*** youuuu" scene by David Caruso and the "SaTaN rUlEs" graffiti that was "ominously" scattered all over the walls of the asylum.
Another thing that got me was that all the characters were pretty lame and annoying, which is fine for a horror movie because they all get killed. Well this movie is no exception, only thing is that it only happens at the very end, when the director finally seems to realize that this movie is supposed to SCARE people.
There, I think that's enough. I honestly don't know if and how anyone could ever have been scared by this movie.
