Á köldum klaka (1995)
What a movie!
In Cold Fever Fredrick Thor Fredrickson gives the viewer a peak into the Incelandic culture. Simply a beautiful film...15 years ago I was an exchange student and lived in Keflavik for a semester. It was the time of my life. While in Iceland a met some amazing people. One person in particular (an icelandic national) I consider one of my best friend today. I've been back to Iceland 5 times since, and he (and his family) have also visited me here in the states numerous times too...Needlesstosay, Iceland has a very spcecial place in my heart...
People often ask me "so what's Iceland like?" Of course I tell them all I know, but if they really want to get a glimpse into Iceland, I have them watch "cold fever".....truly a great piece of art!
A History of Violence (2005)
This movie is nothing more than "Showgirls" with lots of guns..
Really, I can't believe how bad this film was, really! From what I hear, the book was quite good, and I can see how it might be. But, this movie, was bad, very bad. Somewhat entertaining at first, but it soon evolved to a silly totally unrealistic movie that to me almost seemed to have "showgirlesque" qualities.
For example, the hilarious sex scene on the steps (after the wife finds out her husband is a former mobster) was akin to the pool sex scene in historic flop "Show girls". The fact that someone (a director I assume) actually thought this scene was a poignant emotional sexual release is hilarious. The bit with the dude kicking his leg like a dog was bit much...
By the way aren't former mobsters suppose to be Italian, and not Polish? Anyhow, about 2/3 of the way threw this debacle I had enough, and had to shut it down. I have absolutely no interest in how this movie ends either, and I hope I never find out.
It totally baffles me how a director/producer could actually watch this movie and think they just made something insightful, or even half way entertaining. If I were the dude that wrote the book, I'd be upset. Because you just got clowned...
Put it this way, this movie was so awful, I even registered for this site just to tell the world..do please, please save yourself 2 bucks and rent something else, like Dukes of Hazzard, or Gigli, because at least those movies KNOW they are are terrible...gee...
