[size=3][font=Franklin Gothic Medium]Well we got a line up for ya. I saw 2 other films. One was Grapes of Wrath which I saw on the big screen which was cool and All that Jazz which as you can see enters my top 10. Let's begin.
Rated X, the Emilo Estevez directed film about the infamous Mitchell Brothers Of "Beyond the Green Door" fame, which, if you don't know the history of porn, was the follow-up hit after Deep Throat that help porn get into the mainstream. Starring Charile Sheen and Emilio Estevez as the 2 bros we follow them breifly through their early lives, and then the years between 1967 - 1991. Although having a variety of sex scenes the film has a made for TV feel to it... which technically it was, it premeired on Showtime. The story is very interesting though, so that's always good. However this is a very flawed film. Estevez in the beginning as a director looks pretty decent at the beginning and end. However the middle seems bland direction wise with spots of interesting exceptions. As an actor, he's rather dull as a porn king addicted to cocaine, however thankfully Charlie Sheen is amazing at being a porn king addicted to cocaine so you tend not to think about him as much. There wasn't much else except one thing. They should have fired the make-up artist. Those are some of the worst bald caps I've ever seen. I couldn't keep my eyes off them. I don't know how you couldn't have caught how bad these were. There actually an interesting metaphor in this cause Sheen's bald cap is usually fine (like one shot it isn't), but Estevez's is horrendous. Anyways an interesting topic in a flawed film.
This Film is Not Yet Rated I won't spend very long on. Just know that you should see it, It's amazing, I've waited over a year to see this (I'm not joking) and it's worth it, the end made my mouth hang open, it's well done, I learned a lot, it makes me wanna riot on the streets, and it's a tad short. See it!
Venus is a character study-comedy that if not for Peter O'Toole would have been released in August with so-so reviews and with no audeince. O'Toole plays an old pervert who falls in love with a young girl who drinks too much. He hangs around her and they make an unlikely friendship if you will. There are some humorous parts, and there are some interesting philosophies thrown about. However this film can't escape it's averageness (it's directed by the Notting Hill director, go figure). The cinematography is good at points, but mostly bland. The locale is put in a bland perspective. The cast is decent. Basically it's an average film with some thought put into it, that makes it a somewhat interesting character study of an old man, but really is too bland for greatness.
See ya next time!
