Okay. As you know, I love my movies. I love all of them. From Fight Club to Dr. Strangelove. But some genres just keep me a tiny bit more entertained than others. For me one of these genres is Sci-Fi. No, I am not a Treky or a Star Wars fanatic. I do however, love movies that can give a good mind-fuck and/or has to do with the apocolypse. Hey that's just the kind of girl I am. Naturaly this would mean I would like Sphere. While this movie has been put down by critics for not reaching its potential, I find the plot both creative and thrilling. Although at some points the movie became quite cliche, its twists kept me guessing. Without giving too much away, the movie follows a team of scientists (Samuel L. Jackson, Sharon Stone, Dustin Hoffman) who are sent by the government to investigate at the bottom of the ocean what seems to be a alien spaceship. Obviously they find some fucked-up stuff and chaos ensues. I think this may be one of Samuel L. Jackson's very few movies where he plays someone who doesn't want or act like he's gonna beat the shit out of anyone. So yeah, I would recommend this for anyone who would like to see a good alien movie, without seeing any aliens per-say.
A great film, totally worth renting. Really, really, really, drugy, but i love drugy films. Anywho.......
Plot/Story: I saw the entire movie wondering what was going on, but basicly it's about this guy who kinda goes crazy after his father dies in Vietnam. I am pretty sure it is called the wall because he sort of builds a mental wall between himself and the world.
Pro: Just about everything about this movie was great, espeically the music, man! I really loved that animationy things, and the whole thing with the people putting on those weird masks, and the whole erieness to the film.
Con: A bit hard to understand at some points, and it can get pretty gross too....
Concluding w.e.: good film......... blah blah blah blah blah, what else can I say.
David Lynch (am I spelling his name right?), is truly an artist. Going into the movie I knew it wouldn't make much sense, but wow, I mean it was like beyond scull f*cking, in films like donny darko at least you have a chance of thinking up an explanation. This was so amazing that I spent all night thinking about it. The more I thought about it, the more I realised that it's not suppost to be understood. It had the characteristics of a dream, or maybe even a mental break down. There are so many ways to interpret this movie its crazy. The acting is amazing, and the directing was beyond spectacular. The story as you have probably already guessed is too confussing and f*cked up to explain. In fact, I don't even think I know what it is about. I have heard that this movie is based on a dream Lynch had, and I have one thing to say about this, what was he smoking? Wonderful film, didn't really have many weak points at all. What I have learned from this film is to look at certain films like abstract paintings. If you plan on seeing this film, relax and just enjoy the ride, don't even try to understand it, it will just ruin the expirience.
P.S. There's this scene with this evil looking bum, that scared the hell out of me. I may just be a pussy but seriously, to me it was ssscccaaaarrrryyyy........... at least to me
Okay I finally found the reveiw for Hotel Rwanda. I also found some other stuff I think I'll post throughout the week
wow, it dosn't get much more disturbing then this. It is hard to believe that somthing could happen like this, and American's hardly even knew about it. Americans were to involved in the OJ Simpson murder case, to even realize that thousands of people where being murdered, which tells you a little something about our culture...... Anyway the movie is about Paul Rusesabagina a man who single handedly saved hundreds of lives. The story is a true one and a sad one at that, about two cultures. One of these were Tustis and the other were Hutus. When Rwanda was settled by Europe, the Tutis, the lighter skined of the two were treated much better then the Hutus. The Hutus were slaves for the Europeans and the Tutis, and were starved and put to work for many years. After the Europeans left Rwanda, they left the Hutus in charge. The Hutus seeking regenge would gather in mobs and groups of guns and plenty of knives, to kill every last Tutis, they espeically targeted the children, to wipe out the next generation. This is where Paul Rusesabagina comes into the story, Paul is the manager of a hotel, and when people start to die, he takes in close to 800 Tutis while all the whites are being evacuated by the UN. The scariest part in the movie for me, was right when the violence started getting bad, the UN evacuated saying "We are peace keepers, not peace makers". Soon people hiding in the hotel start to run out of supplies, so sadly Paul Rusesabagina, has to go out into the destroyed remains of his once beautiful country, to go and find one of the men who started this mess, who also carries all of the supplys for the hotel. While out he sees countless Tutis prisinors many of them children. I am happy to say it has some what of a happy ending, besides the fact that 1 million people half children died during this period that couldnt be more then a year. The actual movie itself was pretty good. I mean what else do you need in a film? Touching story, good characters, and whole lot of death. Also during some scenes it did create a whole lot of suspence. If you plan on seeing this movie, have a great movie watching expirience!
