This Is It (2009)
Thank You MJ
I saw This Is It today and all i can say is that it is fitting for the man Michael. That will say more than anything else about how well done this movie is. It makes me sad when i see what a fantastic production this could've been to know that the world never got a chance to see it. But i know it would've been amazing, that's more than enough for me.
For the film it is basically all of his biggest hits that would've been performed in the shows on the big screen instead. It's just rehearsal but he's still amazing in them. Between each song you got some insight into the bigger picture of the shows themselves, and sometimes you'd even get to see Michael as himself.
Michael you were truly one of God's greatest gifts to those of us lucky to be alive now. R.I.P
A little disappointed
After its raving reviews especially from the IMDb site, i was looking forward to seeing this movie. But for once, i'm gonna have to agree with the paper's about this film, many of which weren't overwhelmed.
I didn't quite see where the fuss was coming from. It was a good film, it was worth the admission, but it is not worthy of an 8/10 here. The film did escape to some extent, after a few battle sequences, i feared the film may become a computer game, where the army sent down different challenges with every level, however, the film wasn't that long so avoiding that wasn't too much of a challenge. Typical of recent films similar to it, it relied heavily upon blood and graphic battle scenes, but as expected, sex and a lot of flesh bearing men. To be honest, this doesn't appeal to me. For a film to receive 8/10 i'd expect more in the story, some scenes to remember, and something a little original. I can't remember one great scene.
It just never reached the heights for me, but i'm one of few, i wouldn't suggest against you going to see it, especially if you're female.
The Fly (1958)
The Fly vs The Fly
The original Fly was released in 1958, 30 whole years before i was born, so maybe the movie appeared a little old fashioned to me, tho where horrors are concerned, the most recent ones do not compare to the old classics.
I had already seen the second version of the Fly, starring Jeff Goldbum, so i felt i had to see this one. In comparison, the two films are not as similar as it may appear. However, if i was to choose which one was the better, it would definitely be the Brundlefly. But that takes nothing away from Andre and the fly head, and it is still a very good horror. Both films concentrate a lot on the love between a woman and the scientist who becomes transformed, especially the original, which gives it a different edge. But the main point is the difference between the transformations. In the new version it is a slow and detailed transformation, in the old version, its terribly sudden.
The two scenes that stood out for me were when you first see the effects of the transformation, and the reaction from his wife, and the other would be the discovery of the white fly at the end. Although the film is only 90 minutes long and has few moments of real terror, it is still worthy of 7/10 in my view, as the wait to see the fly keeps tension and worry in the film always.
