Great Thrills, Great Story
When I first saw Ayakashi I was amazed by the strong animation and the story behind it.
There are 3 different separate stories, each having about 3 episodes. First deals with an angry ghost, originally a beautiful woman cheated and disappointed by her husband Iemon who chose a younger girl over her. Her curse will finally destroy him and everybody that surrounds them. The second story is about a beautiful demon princess (a lost god) who lives in a castle who falls in love with a mortal and thus dooms her kind. A tragic battle is fought between humans and demons and the end is somewhat unexpected. I guess the main idea of this second story is freedom and having the right to choose whom to love. The third story (which I loved the most) is about a magician who enters a house haunted by a Bake Neko, a black cat. His purpose is to find out what the spirit is and under what circumstances did it appear, why does it hate the humans living there so much. When I saw the magician sprinkling salt on the floor I remembered an old tale from my country saying that salt keeps bad spirits away and you should sprinkle it on the doorstep so that no-one with bad intentions should enter your house.
I loved these stories and I would recommend them to anyone who loves a horror tale with a twist of evilness.
I gave it a 10 out of 10. By the way, if you liked this, you will also like the Requiem for the Darkness series of tales.
King Kong (2005)
Oh, it's a Scream!
It was a good movie... basically. I knew that King Kong would die, but after the first one hour, I thought he would go deaf! Blondie screams and screams and screams some more... But it was fun to watch him battle the dinosaurs. And then they got to the big city... and King Kong becomes a celebrity, and he's on stage, and another blond girl is brought for entertaining the audience... and she screams, and screams.. and then the ape breaks loose... and people scatter .. you guessed, screaming! It was enjoyable, though, and in the end, when they are both on the Empire State Building, and she is gently put down, and the gorilla falls towards the ground... for one second, didn't you have in your mind the scene from Titanic, where DiCaprio sacrifices himself for Kate to live...and he lets go of the door-or whatever it was they were clinging to- and falls in a slow motion to the bottom of the sea? Beauty killed him.
Æon Flux (2005)
What in the world were they thinking?
Bad, bad movie. I give a 2 out of 10 only for the beauty of the backgrounds and the photography. Charlize Theron... big deal. Even Kate Moss could have played in this stinky movie with no effort. All the leading lady had to do is look good in those really-fit clothes and whenever mimicking fitting, she had to look distant and out of thought. I can't feel the passion, the determination, the one thing that drives people to do something big. It seemed she was on drugs or something.. The idea of the whole movie could have been brought to view in a different manner, and it wasn't such a brilliant idea, as I expected. Cloning, yes, future disease, yes, test subjects, yes... but the way they put it... it is beyond crappy :)
Bye now! AAA, don't watch it!
Shura Yukihime (2001)
Not to talkative
I've seen the movie only recently, although it appeared in 2001. I hoped to see an entertaining movie, but let me tell you, Princess Blade is nothing compared to Azumi. The "princess" is not very talkative, as you may have noticed... She reminded me of Jean Claude Van Damme, who only stared to make his point, then beat the crap out of the opponents. During the entire movie, I waited to hear at least a confession about what she liked, why was she fighting, who did she love and trust. I waited in vain. Crappy movie. Crappy dialog. Don't watch it unless you want to be bored out of your minds! It's so bad, that in the end I was wondering how I managed not to scream in frustration 1 and a half hour. Approximately. I give a 4/10.
Super Duper Movie!
I didn't get much at first, because I never played FF7, just FF8, so, all I knew about the main characters were from some old wallpapers I had since Highschool. After I watched the movie, I jumped on the internet and started to look at a plot outline for the game. Now I want to play! The soundtrack is a masterpiece! I simply love the third track from the CD - beyond the wasteland.. it starts with a heartbeat and feels like a horror movie, and then it speeds up... and your heart beats in the same rhythm.. This is also true for the movie. The scene follow up one after another so quickly... And when Cloud jumped in the air... I jumped with him:) What I loved about the movie was the battle between Tifa and Loz(?) I think.. I have a cool wallpaper since then. :P All the yellow and white petals flying all over the place. And in the end... Aerith. Soo nice! I wonder if Cloud stays with Tifa? I want a SEQUEL! or :) the same thing for Final Fantasy 8. Or X, X-2... I want more :)
King Solomon's Mines (2004)
Nice "Animal Planet" Photos, subject sucks
I give 3 stars only for the beautiful pictures of Africa. The rest was... well pretty boring. For about 50min we have the outline of the plot... In War of the worlds, the introductory part lasted, oh, about 10min? Then was real action! This is something like:"Let's take a walk in the savanna and gasp at the beautiful sunsets!". And maybe deliver a message, like "Don't kill elephants!". Very ecological. I would have expected this out of a "new" Steven Segal movie, not from this... The leading actress makes me think about artificial sun-tan, dyed hair and too much foundation! And I didn't see one scene where her hair is messed up, or she sweats, or her clothes are dusty. She just doesn't look like a 19 century woman! And in the bar, where they seek up our hero, Swayze makes a comment about the commander that he looks like Dracula. Hmmm, Bram Stoker wrote his book and published it in 1896, and it became famous in the next years. Livingstone and other explorers went to central Africa from 1840 to 1880. So unless the action takes place between 1896 and 1900.. Houston, we have a problem. :) Swayze makes a nice impression.. as a nutshell - hard on the outside, but soft and cuddly on the inside. Not that I would cuddle with a nut, but you get the point. He really manages to have that beaten puppy look on his face on several occasions. The movie stank. Way too long and increasingly boring. don't watch it! Don't buy it! It's a waste of your money!
If this is a good movie, then I'm a pizza
What should I start with... 2 h of nonsense... I couldn't make the point of the entire movie. Are they playing "entertaining" games for the wealthy ones? Are they just sadists? Who has "the gift" and who doesn't? Can it be stolen? The toreador stole it from the cop, right? I'm confused. I tried to understand it, but whenever I thought:"Oh, I got it now", something messed things up. So let's say you win a fabulous sum from the life/accident insurance. Do you go along with a guy who wants to bet all your money and get half of the profit??? And who is willing to risk everything YOU own and love? And what's the deal with "I don't love you anymore". The cop died saying those words. To who? A vision of her husband? To the guy she kissed in the alley (wich still is a mystery why - to steal his luck?I don't think it worked, because after just 1 min she gets knocked out). In the end, a little bug. After killing the Jew, our lucky guy goes in the desert and starts running? Why is he running? he came with a car.He should leave with a car if he's in a hurry. where is he going?... And the bug: he goes to his knees and on the left there's a long shadow on the ground and as there is no tall plant around, I suspect it was a crew member. And Why in the world would he burn the very photo of his beloved? Btw ... how did he end up in her apartment?And where did he buy that gun he shot her with?It's like i'm watching more photos that aren't tied together. Boring crap. Another 2 h of my life (+20 min writing this comment) are waisted. Bye!
Angels in America (2003)
Crappy love movie
Well, first when I've heart about Angels in America, I thought, "Oh, yea! an inspiring movie about miracles in life, easy to enjoy on a Christmas night" It wasn't so. It begins with that funeral and the scene where 2 guys talk... And I thought: ooh! so cute! a gay couple! Not many directors have guts or vision or something like that to discuss sensitive matters like AIDS and Homosexuality in a show that would be about angels. It got worse. Not a straight couple in the entire movie. Pompous speech, nothing to make me smile, or inspire me in any way. I kept looking, episode after episode, to see: where's the point in all this, how does it end? does it explain anything? Here comes the spoiler: the ending leaves u thinking: what the Heck did I watch the last 6 hours? (Assuming u watch the series in one day... like I did) It doesn't say weather it was all a madman's hallucination, induced by too many pills, it doesn't say the nimpho is a psycho who's gone nuts after a miscarriage... and what was all the talk about Reagan? is it so important who voted for him? that's it. Loony movie. Complicated phrases, with no meaning. Nothing poetic, nothing sweet.
