A significant improvement from the first film. This time the script was better written and had more resemblance to the book. I enjoyed the acting by the main characters, definitely an improvement from using useless child actors. The pace was improved too, but I do have problems with the changes in the plot from the book. Overall an enjoyable experience, Francis Lawrence did a great job directing.
The idiots is Lars von Trier's shocking black comedy, which is also his first attempt at Dogma 95. The idiots explored the eccentricity of a group of adults in their protest of the responsibilities they need to make as adults. The humour is too crude for my taste. It felt like porn at some stages, but I can honestly say it's the paramount of experimental films. I don't think I can look at Denmark again the same way after this film.
Jason Statham stars in this remake of the 1972 film of the same name. I seriously disliked the casting and acting, plot was superficial and predictable. The action wasn't fun enough to catch my attention and it's just overall a bad production and bad ensemble.
My question is: How did they get these second rated actors to participate in this Z-movie? Absolute garbage, I actually regretted watching this film. It's like they don't even bother trying to make a good movie at all, just throw in random (lame) movie references. I cracked up for 2 seconds in the entire film about Oprah eating people but that's it. Don't even bother.
