Hood of Horror (2006)
Weak, boring and not worth the money
Don't watch this movie. I really tried to search for something good in this motion picture but I could not find anything. The comic scenes are not very well done, and the three short stories in the movie, which are awfully connected, do not have a real plot. The killing scenes are quite fun for some splatter fans, but of course cannot safe such a bad movie. Actors are bad and the screenplay is pathetic. I think the only intention of this movie is to promote snoop dogg's new album. The movie is more like an 80 minute long rap video. Snoop dogg tries to focus on big boobs and barely dressed girls - and of course 40's. Somebody should have told him that this might work for a 3 minute video clip, but not for a full length movie. I have never seen so many people leaving the theater that disappointed and angry. Don't join them - watch another film.
Disgusting, vulgar and fascinating
I just got to see this movie at the Fantasy Film Festival in Nuremberg and I was pretty astonished how many people actually wanted to see it. Cinema was nearly sold out and I think people got what they were looking for. It's a nice little thriller about a disgusting fetish. The audience gets to see everything. Puking fat women, sex with 600 pound women and some even more disgusting things that I do not want to mention here. But this movie has its weaknesses. Started from the tolerable but ridiculous "computer hacking" scenes in which "dir windows" kind of traces people all over the world, to an ending which is just not plausible. The movie tries to narrate a possibly real story and the ending seems to be misplaced. But as the topic said it's fascinating to see how far humans can go, although the movie exaggerates this a bit too much in my opinion. Acting was quite okay, story has its flaws, but all in all, I'd recommend this movie, because this is one of the movies you will certainly talk about after-wards. 6 of 10, not only for breaking some taboos.
Very convincing presentation of German history
OK, first of all. This movie is absolutely not like "the Downfall" (Der Untergang). Sophie Scholl is way more demanding and exacting. Now, 3 days after I've seen this movie, I still got a feeling of guilt and concernment in my stomach. In my opinion Sophie Scholl is due to its precision more like a (replayed) documentary movie than a Drama, which makes it even more "shocking". This is for sure no light entertainment, and those, that don't like long conversations or even are not interested in history, should not watch this movie. This is the main reason, why Sophie Scholl won't make the transatlantic heap, because it's too "special". It's a part of German history and requires a willingness to cope with it.
Marc Rothemund does a very good job on directing this movie, and Julia Jentsch is very convincing. While watching this movie you don't have the feeling that the story is 60 years ago and can't touch you. It makes you feel like you're in the thick of it. And that's why I give a 9/10. Great Movie.
Der Untergang (2004)
A German masterpiece
I've just seen this movie, and I was surprised by an amazingly good acting. Bruno Ganz is for sure the "best" Adolf Hitler ever. The audience was laughing when he first entered the screen, but suddenly everybody was quiet and astonished. You might think that Hitler himself has played this role. Same for Ulrich Matthes as Goebbels, outstanding acting. You can really feel the atmosphere in the bunker and maybe understand deeds and actions that seemed unbelievable before. The plot was written by history, hence its even harder to keep the audience excited. But this movie just works. Another pro for this movie is that it doesn't judge anything, it trys to explain history. 8 out of 10.
This movie has a good start but turns out to be a cheap production, probably low budget (especially the effects). The actors are certainly not the best and the "horror screnes" are truly not revolutionary. instead of scaring you, this movie makes you ask why this is labled as a "horror" movie. The ending is totally messed up, and if the devil sees what he looks like in this movie, he'd probably punish the creators. But all in all, and when you really love the genre, it's worth looking through it, when you're bored. As i said the beginning is quite good. 4/10
