Crop And Save
Another zombie flick? WTF?
This is very bad, i have no other words, i really wonder how they could pretend this film to be a serious one. This is very bad. Don't go see it, save your money. The acting is the worst i've suffered in a long time, the overacting, screaming, and running is so dull you'll end up laughing no matter how old you are. The plot is non-existent, you can read it in some review and that's all:
2)Trapped in the infected house-
3)No one gets to understand that the ex-human covered in blood trying to bite them are no good-
4)Some unusual explanation in the roof that nobody cares because this is a zombie movie and we need no explanation, we needed it to be well done.
Embarrassing teenager movie
I usually see this box office films at home, without any other objective than being entertained or just get asleep at bed, but sometimes even with this low expectations i get caught in something so bad than i can't even sleep because of anger. That is the case, that's why i'm posting here. Remembering all those actors senseless running like beheaded chicken is a matter of laughing or crying, but not film-making. All those characters without purpose, the marines, the "hot hacker", the proverbial funny fat black boy, those actors like Voight(lost a long time ago)and Turturro?!(by the way the only one acting here). Oh my god! The hot girl who nobody know why loves the teenager nerd who suddenly becomes quarterback and saves the world, haven't you heard about it?. I don't know if this had a script, it should be two pages long. If that is, the writers guild could take a long strike, now i'm dreaming it could last forever.
Flags of Our Fathers (2006)
Good script, bad cut-up
This film has some memorable lines, but they are all mixed up in the film you almost can't notice them, in a film like this is more appropriate a linear history telling with some short flashbacks when needed. The mixed cut-up tends to confuse and yes, sometimes is boring. It really also needed some character development of some of the flag raisers. This film goes deeper (very very deeper than any other war films) in explaining what veterans feel, it explains most of them are not proud of what they did, and most of them didn't do it for the country or the flag, they did it for their buddies. In my opinion the Ira Hayes's character(very good performance) steals the film and ends up being the real hero here. Conclusion: bad cut-up, and sometimes the film does not focus in the important things, but in the end it works, mostly because of some very good lines and the drunken Ira Hayes whose life is worth a film.
Big miscasting but still entertaining
Brad Pitt as a gypsy?? haha the good nice boy from Hollywood,who'd buy it?, that was a del toro's character, the two fingered boy could have been Pitt (or anyone else). The off-voice also becomes really unpleasant as we're no teens and we like to think sometimes. Now the pros, the better acting here is clearly delivered by Brick Top (Alan Ford a TV actor semi-unknown) he is funny and terrifying at one time. The second best is delivered by Vinnie Jones, a one-face tough boy actor but why should he change if he is good at it?. The intricate and rather ridiculous plot is based on coincidence (Ritchie is London that small?)but keeps you focused on the film, the problem is that when you finish there's not much to remember. Obscene high rate on IMDb.
Spider-Man 3 (2007)
You can't base a script on coincidences
This film's script looks like the result of mixing two different scripts, two films in one, even three films sometimes, everything is based on coincidences that may convince a young kid, but that turn down the entire story. The story of the sandman is put in here needlessly just to add some more spice, a fourth film could have been made with it. The venom part if well done could be enough for a film along with the goblin. I will not speak about Tobeys acting, the nerd Peter is way to much boring, confusing, stupid; i kinda liked the bad Peter at least he does something, he reacts, and it's funny. With so high budget they could have done better, but in the end what does it matter the budget when a script is senseless?.
Night of the Living Dead (1990)
How to destroy a classic
Loving zombie good films i hate so much this stuff, i don't know how Romero was involved in this or why Savini went into directing. The first 15 minutes are a constant scream of the girl who later becomes Rambo, the dialogs are so bad you wouldn't believe it, the dummies are laughable, i don't understand why this film looks done in the 60's more than the original. A total senseless action and ending, losing all the good things from the original, they spent half of the film putting light nails on the windows like crazy, oh god i better stop here.
These are the films that dishonor zombie genre. Impossible to do it worse.
The Prestige (2006)
the prestige has no prestige
A film that you know the end from the beginning must be a very good film to catch the attention of the audience, like a good trick of magic or like good films like "memento" or "usual suspects". If we know the end at least we expect some interesting history, a real plot, good characters, not just a pretentious film. Here we only have two magicians going all the way around each other, with an obvious twist that evolves into a sci-fi twist which nobody wants to see because we already know. I'd say that the acting of the three main characters is very good (Bale is superb as always, and Jackman is improving), s. Johanson is also OK but her character could be off the film and nobody would notice.
Dawn of the Dead (2004)
A could-be-good remake
I have to admit that the old Dawn of the dead is for me the best zombie film ever, good and simple script, unknown actors, total chaos... but here i review the 2004 film. First i'd say i don't like fast moving zombies at all, zombie's charm is in the slowness, it makes them so scary. The mayor flaw of the remake (besides the zombie baby!?! which was so unfortunate) is in the script of course, the characters never admit that they could end up living inside the mall, like they did in the 70's film where they made at home inside, and in the end were the humans who f4ck them up. Here script writers came up with a stupid salvation convoy and a more senseless boat scape, a "made in Hollywood" ending. Zombie movies are doomed because is the way they should end up. This genre admits no innovation, we don't need explanation for the undead awakening, no zombie character development (did i said that?), and only a small hope for humans like in our real world. So please respect zombie movies standards.
An Inconvenient Truth (2006)
here the end justifies the means
I don't support Gore, and i do believe this film is mostly propaganda for him, you can't talk like that when you've been viceprez of US, he's talking to us like he is a poor guy coming out of his farm, come on hillybilly. But whatever we think about Gore no one can denies that the facts are getting worse, they are so obvious, here in Europe we don't have winter anymore, our climate is changing drastically, animals are getting lost and we can't sky anymore. I don't need scientific theories to see it, it's clear that we are changing the earth, and i'm afraid it'll be worse with or without Hilary Clinton on the white house, that won't make a difference.
The Departed (2006)
who else was fooled?
If the academy was in doubt with Scorsese, now i'm afraid it's him who is in doubt with them. Come on you serious about this movie??. 72 on IMDb??? This really needed to be so complicated??, did the endless ending needed to be that bloody??, do we really need so many main characters to make a good film??, more than two hours long??, Can someone believe this??, why that scene in the graveyard copying the third man??, and the most important thing: what was this film about??, did you feel something??, can't you remember a memorable, touching, funny or innovative scene?? From now on i hate cell phones.
PD. I loved goodfellas, casino, raging bull, taxi driver, but that wouldn't stop me.
