Just very few movie scenes really gave me the creeps. Let me list them:
- "The Cell": First meeting with the boy in the desert - "Lord of the Rings": Galadriel's trial on the ring - Some Stephen King short story movie which i can't remember its title: A monster crushing an airplane's turbine
And "Signs" has loads of scenes that really gave me the creeps. More than once i found myself grabbing the seat or jumping off it.
The most shocking parts were not things you see but rather things hinted by shadows, noises and movement from the corner of the eye.
For sure one of the best movies in 2002.
All in all: Watch it and have fun. Nothing more but for sure nothing less
As a "Godzilla" movie it's total crap, Godzilla looks like some sort of screwed-up dinosaur, not like Godzilla must look. And it totally lacks the funny styrofoam look and strange stories of the original movies. I gotta say this as a true Godzilla (the original movies) fan.
On the other hand it deserves some points for good effects, action and some suspense.
All in all it's fun watching once (but not as a Godzilla movie) but that's it
This movie is really exceptional. Who would've expected a puppet movie combined with horror-movie appearance, drugs, sex and splatter? And it has all of that.
So eccentric and packed that you should watch it several times to get all the details. And it's worth being watched multiple times.
I really found myself lying on the floor laughing, it's great!
If you like "Nightmare before Christmas" then you'll love this one. Believe me
It doesn't have a lot of action, "just" several dream sequences hold together by a day on the beach. But all of the sequences exactly mimic some sort of stereotypes, mainly about german tourists as they are deemed.
And if you've ever kept an eye on those behaviors you will love this (in parts even sarcastic) movie. You won't roll on the floor laughing but you'll definitely smirk and grin all the time.
There are crap movies (never watch them)
There are good movies (a few times will suffice)
There are very good movies (watching multiple times and not getting worse)
And there are gorgeous movies (getting better each time you watch'em)
And Dune is for sure one of the last category. Perfect actors, great fx (especially for a 1984 movie). The awesome soundtrack really supports the play. And the best thing about it is the dense, neo-medieval, techno atmosphere.
This movie really touched (or say impressed) me like very few movies actually do.
It lacks so much logic, effects, story and talent that it's really worth looking at. One of those crap movies, that are even good by being crap. You know ;)
Watch it on a geek party with some beer and you will have lotsa fun
