Crop And Save
Cadillac Records (2008)
this movie lets appreciate music that would otherwise be overlooked
The trouble with these kind of movies is that they will never satisfy the purists among us. OK so maybe it glosses over the facts and makes the history all shiny and Hollywood, but I will see how many people will come away from this movie WANTING to find out more about the history of blues.
So what if its not perfect, if you want a perfect history you will go and buy a documentary on the subject. I want to be entertained when I watch a movie not sit there and critique history.
I think all the performances in the movie are convincing and great. I especially loved Beyonce, she just seems to ooze talent, although the on-screen time is shorter compared to Dreamgirls, she is extremely commanding.
As for the covering Etta's song, these are outstanding. I am in love with the songs all over again, and in love with these versions.
Silent Hill (2006)
Well Made Trash
the production on this film was great, sound design wasn't great but it done the just, the visuals were generally great and i loved the photography BUT
This is probably one of the worst films i have EVER seen.....nothing held water, the plot was confusing and pointless......and it was such a terrible waste of a great actor like Sean Bean....
If people want to sit at home on their personal computers and play games with disposable plots then fine, if they gain enjoyment out of the gameplay kudos to them.....but I'm not really sure how this films would work as a game let alone a film?
I'm not sure i could go as far as to say the ending was clichéd because even a cliché would serve a purpose, this didn't.
I don't normally write reviews of anything but i felt compelled to sit here and type this. I Just feel sorry for the crew and productions departments who did a fantastic job on making a dire film look and sound great.
