that was a hard movie to watch. hard one to rate, too. the story is so sad and disturbing but the portrayal of this terrible true story was executed very well. it will leave you angry and heartbroken. i don't think i'll be reading the book.
i went into this movie knowing absolutely nothing -- i didn't even know "Gatsby" was supposed to be a person. i had no intentions of seeing this film because i whole heartedly despise Tobey Maguire and Leaonardo DiCaprio hasn't done anything for me since his performance in Titanic... i thought it looked horrible from the previews i saw. needless to say, my expectations for this movie were incredibly low. well, i thought it was spectacular -- i absolutely loved it. it was fast paced and had an almost "cartoony" feel to the film -- which i also loved -- extremely similar to Moulin Rouge in that aspect (come to find out they share the same director). and not to mention the soundtrack -- top notch. the colors and the costumes and the parties etc. -- loved it. i loved it so much that i forgot Tobey Maguire was in it and i found Leonardo DiCaprio extremely attractive.
i didn't like it as much as i thought i would -- but it was good; i liked it. i appreciate watching a movie from the viewpoint of the "bad guys" = well played. but as you can imagine, there's not really much for a plot. turns out zombies don't do a whole lot, haha :) it was cute, though. pretty comical; got a few good laughs in.
fan. flippin. tastic. that's right, another point for South Korea. i have not seen a monster movie like this in a long time. it's one of those "holy sh*t, i wasn't expecting that" type of movie. the monster was fairly believable -- how fricken scared would you be with that thing chasin' you?! and it was SO comical! i got a real good kick out of it. def recommend this one.
i hadn't heard of this film before -- a generic "best horror movies" website introduced it to me and i have to say i'm impressed. it was pretty good -- i'm lovin' the whole "time travel" concept. and the ending is kind of tragic, which also appeals to me for some reason. i'd recommend it.
