In some peoples opinion this is where the franchise took a nose dive. I don't think that was the case at all. this isn't a harsh criticism, but i haven't take these films seriously since the first "Child's Play" movie. They have taken on a comedic spin, the second and third films were unintentional, but in Bride Of Chucky, the humor was intentionally pushed to the limit. Its the only explanation for hiring Jennifer Tilly for one of the lead roles. Bride of chuck follows on from where it left off In Child's Play 3. Chuckys former girlfriend Tiffany, acquires the dolls remains from the police evidence locker after murdering a police officer who removed the "Good Guy" doll parts from an evidence locker, Tiffany stitches Chucky back together and performs the voodoo ritual which instilled Put chuckys soul in the doll originally. Though her chants initially fail to produce results, Chucky springs to life and kills Tiffany's goth admirer, Tiffany locks Chucky in a playpen , gets out and kills her, then puts Tiffany into a doll. Chucky, who is still intent on becoming human again, lays out a plan to retrieve the body-switching amulet he was wearing on the night he was killed. I do have to admit this was my favourite of the series. The humor does give it the edge it needs. Seeing a female counter part to chucky also adds something special to film. Some outstanding points that need mentioning, The Soundtrack was excellent. granted not everyone's cup of tea, but anyone whos a fan of rock or metal will appreciate it as a great addition. The performances given by most of the actors is on point, with the exception of Katherine Heigl. I have enjoyed a lot of her work including "Roswell" and "Grey's Anatomy" but she seemed a little out of place in this genre. If your a fan of comedic horror or the child play series and haven't seen this, i highly recommend it.
The Darkest Hour is a film that im a bit on the fence about. On the one hand the concept for the film, electrically charged beings from out of space destroying the planet, and a hand full of survivors are trying to stay alive, seems like a great premise for a film. On the other hand, this is something that has been done to death. They generally play out the same way, the only thing that differs is the type of alien that attacks our planet. This film has a 28 days later meets War Of The Worlds feel to it for some reason i cant quite put my finger on? the film did have its suspenseful moments where you're yelling at the screen telling the characters not to do the thing they inevitably do. The film was enjoyable but by the end leaves you feeling a little unfulfilled, and looking for the next movie to past the time. No outstanding performances or points of interest to note, except maybe the special effects used for the aliens obliterating the humans into ash.
Its rare for a prequel to stay true to a series, let alone be as enjoyable as the previous films, but Men In Black 3 definately stood up to the challenge..There have been quite a few let downs in this department, inlcuding the dissapointing treatment of "Underworld: rise of the lycans", "Hannibal Rising" and "X-men Origins" and the list goes on.
The 3rd installment of Men In Black starts off with the escape of the intergalatic criminal know as Boris the animal. He goes back to 1969 to kill agent K for shooting off his arm and inprisoning him. Agent K dissapears, and to the rest of the Men in Black headquaters, has been dead for the past 40 years. Agent J is the only one that remembers what really happened. Agent J goes back to 1969 to try and prevent Agent K from being killed and put everything back the way it was. The amazing thing about this film was that both Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith looked like they hadnt aged a day since Men In Black 2. It Still had all the thing that made the previous 2 film great, alot of laughs, high tech gatgets and vehicles they use to hunt down intergalatic criminals and it goes without say that they acting but the tthree lead charecters was brilliant (including the uncanny performance Josh Brolin gave as the younger version of Tommy Lee Jones). Extra credit goes to Jemaine Clement, half of the comedy duo "flight of the concords" for his portrayl of Boris the animal. if you hadnt of checked the credits you wouldnt have even known it was him.
This has got to be the worst, most absurd, horrible piece of crap movie i have ever seen in my entire life!!!! and thats putting it nicely!!!!!! This film advertises its self as a cool, hip newer version of witchy 1994 film "The Craft". what we got was an abomination of a film that should have been thrown out as quickly as it was made!! the basic plot is about 5 troubled teenage girls, who have been sent to a religious boarding school to mend there ways. while at the school they discover that they each have magical powers, and that there is a supernatural force or demon roaming the halls. I will ruin the end of this film for anyone reading this because this movie is a kin to having bamboo shoved under your fingernails. the girls uses there powers once in the film on a pointless spell that doesnt work, they all get killed by the demon, and the preist (played by Ron Perlman) baqsically ends the film with saying that they were evil and had it coming!!! i remember how enraged i was watching this film, and it grew more and more as the film went on. it seemed like a heavily religious warning saying "if you do anything that we dont approve of, then everything bad that happens was coming to you!" or something to that effect. i watched this film 4 years ago and i will never, ever, EVER watch it again!!!....EVER!
