Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

I just... can't wrap my head around the appeal of these movies. I'd be better off watching "The Bold & The Beautiful" really, these movies can't even measure up against one of the worst soap operas on television. I haven't seen any of the other films in this franchise, nor have I read the books, and now I know why I've avoided them like a disease.
And just to add a really low blow, you'd think that Kristen Stewart could use the millions she's undeservedly recieved from these atrocities to fix her chicklet-horse teeth.

Altogether not a very goood horror movie. Acting seemed very weak parts but the film almost redeemed itself with an ingenious twist and some moments of suspense.

Friday the 13th
½

I love horror movies, particularly slashers. There are so many emotions involved with these types of films, and those that are well made can feel more like a ride rather than a movie. Watching a horror movie on the big screen is quite a different experience, you can?t pause it, turn it off or lower the volume. In my opinion you can?t get the full effect of a true horror movie until you?ve seen it in theaters.
When I got the news of a Friday the 13th movie, I was ecstatic. I have been a fan of the originals since I was a child, however I was never able to watch any in the theaters because they were made before my time. Granted, I was able to see Freddy vs Jason (which I loved) in theaters, but that just wasn?t the same.
I had first heard rumors about the reboot (no, I am not going to say remake) of Friday the 13th about two years ago, however my interest kind of died when the updates did. Then a screenshot emerged, and casting was beginning to spill out, I realized yes this is actually going to happen, it?s not just whispering anymore, it?s confirmed. Then finally there was a set date, February 13th. When this was announced, it seemed so far away, but then it slowly crept up on us and at last I was able to watch my most anticipated movie of 2009.
Now my expectations were ranging, when Marcus Nispel was named as director my expectations went up. I love The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and thought he had made one of the best slashers in years. However my expectations lowered when Derek Mears was cast as Jason, I didn?t know much about him and didn?t know what to expect. By now I was expecting something average, but not terrible.
Now let?s get to the film, I went to the midnight screening, it was sold out and absolutely packed. Going to see a scary movie with a full audience is always fun, I might add. Anyways, the film starts out recapping a bit of the original, while scrolling through the opening credits we see a young camp counselor trying to fight off Pamela Voorhees, Jason?s mother. Anyone who has seen the original Friday the 13th knows that Jason?s mother seeks revenge after her son drowns because of neglectful camp counselors. The opening sequence was exactly what I was looking for, something new yet familiar.
Now the audience is introduced to 5 young adults who are on the hunt for marijuana suspected to be growing near Camp Crystal Lake. Their plan is to harvest the plants and sell them for a profit, of course. I wasn?t sure if I entirely keen on this new plot idea, but it was something new for the series, and drug material always had its place in the F13 films. As anyone can guess the young adults run into some trouble once they set up camp, and well I am not going to spoil the outcome.
6 weeks later we meet Clay Miller, who is searching for his sister Whitney, who was one of the four that disappeared. Clay?s character, portrayed by Jared Padalecki is the typical nice guy, although he?s very stereotypical, he?s quite likeable.
The unlikable characters are introduced as well, a new group of kids on their way to stay at their friend Trent?s parent?s fancy cabin. On the way they stop at a gas station to fill up, and run into Clay who is handing out posters for his missing sister. The run in doesn?t go so well as Jenna, Trent?s girlfriend, has to break up an argument. The spoiled kids go on their way and arrive at a beautiful cabin by Crystal Lake. Of course their intention of going to the lake is to get high, drink and fool around.
I suppose I should reveal a little detail on the main characters here, even though they are quite predictable. We have Trent, the spoiled kid driving his parent?s Cadillac Escalade. There is Jenna, Trent?s girlfriend who seems quiet and cautious, much like Clay. Chewie is the Asian party guy, and Lawrence is the ever essential black character. Chelsea and Nolan are the frisky, attractive couple, and Bree is the vixen of the movie.
Now that I?ve gone through the standard Friday The 13th characters, I can dive a bit into the story. Clay goes around to several properties to hand out the missing posters of his sister Whitney, and after a creepy encounter with an older lady who informs him to quit looking, he comes upon the cabin the party people are occupying. Jenna invites Clay inside for a drink and questions him about his sister, as to be expected Trent is not happy with Clay being invited inside and demands that he leave, upset by this, Jenna leaves with him.
Jenna helps Clay continue his search and they decide to explore the abandoned camp, where they discover unsettling clues as to what happened to those 5 people 6 weeks prior.
Not to mention Clay and Jenna run into Jason, who just happens to be transporting a dead body back to his cabin. Luckily they avoid him and are able to run back to Jenna?s friends to warn them that someone is lurking around and has been killing.
The others are at first unconvinced, but then terrified as Jason discovers the cabin and begins picking them off. I don?t want to spoil any deaths here, but I will add some are quite satisfying. Now everyone?s running for their lives, trying to avoid Jason, who is smarter and quicker this time around. Clay and Jenna escape back to the abandoned cabins of the camp, where they soon discover Jason?s secret down beneath.
Friday the 13th was just so entertaining when it really got going, I enjoyed almost every minute of it. Derek Mears as the new, revamped Jason was excellent. He portrayed the famous character in a way that hasn?t been done before, and perhaps just what was needed to make this icon terrifying again.
I truly felt this was a true slasher, it was like watching those classics with a modern twist to it. The acting was cheesy at parts, but other wise good. The gore wasn?t excessive but it was still hard enough to make you cringe. To me it felt like a Friday the 13th film, like it belonged in the series I?ve come to know and love.
I know not all fans of the series are going to appreciate the new Jason or the new take on the classics, but I had an open mind and I felt we needed something new if there was going to be another film made, not just a remake. I am going to say I loved this film. I was entertained, I enjoyed this movie, and am going to watch it again and again. Isn?t that what these kinds of movies are for?

3:10 to Yuma was a delight to watch, a feast for the eyes and for the mind. This is one of those movies that you really get locked in. You forget you're in a theater, and anticipate what's going to happen next. Perhaps if you have seen the original then you might know the story, but for those who haven't, expect to be surprised and entertained. Outstanding performances from Russell Crowe and Christian Bale, and an excellent role for Ben Foster. For me personally, not a dull moment. The movie only loses points because the character William was not as believable. They could have cast him better, or perhaps given him less on screen time. Despite that one flaw, the film made up for it in so many ways. In my opinion this movie shouldn't be missed by western fans, or movie fans in general.

No Country for Old Men

There was one movie that I was dying to see in 2007 - No Country For Old Men. There has been a great buzz surrounding this film, critics have been hailing No Country as a masterpiece, a classic and a film to be challenged. Things only got better as it was nominated for 8 academy awards, and took home four, including best picture and best director.
I was a little apprehensive at believing all of the praise, I didn't want to set my expectations too high, but I almost couldn?t help it when I viewed the trailer and clips over the internet and on television. I have been a fan of the Coen brothers since Fargo, and by the looks of it, they were back in their element, and had directed the greatest film of their careers.
I will admit, I watched No Country on the big screen, alone. I had no one to go with and was not going to miss the opportunity to see this in the theater. Right from the get-go the movie is intense, the character Anton Chigurh played by Javier Bardem is arrested and brought into the county jail for processing. However his stay is quite short as he manages to escape by strangling the officer with his handcuffs, and stealing the police cruiser. Chigurh begins his path of destruction with the help of his trusty oxygen tank and stun gun attachment.
Meanwhile Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin), a middle-class welder is out hunting antelope when he stumbles upon what appears to be a drug deal gone wrong. 3 vehicles, many dead bodies, and a truck bed filled with heroin. After a few minutes of inspection, and after collecting a few guns for his collection, Moss finds one dead man farther away from the others. With that man is a black satchel. Inside that satchel is 2 million dollars, cash, in 10 thousand dollar bricks. Moss can only wonder what to do, but at that point, who would leave that money? It?s a big, life-altering decision, which it seems that Moss did not put that much thought into.
Later that night, Moss returns to help out a man who was left alive, but finds that the man had eventually succumb to his injuries. But now Llewelyn has a problem, two men driving a truck have come to the scene, and have spotted his brown ford truck. They slash the tires, and eventually spot Llewelyn running for cover. While avoiding gunshots, Moss manages to get away, but not without a few wounds. Now, fearing for his life, and his wife?s, he derives a plan. Send his wife to her mothers, and flee with the money, hoping to lose the trail of whoever is chasing him.
Anton Chigurh is now on the look out for the satchel that contains the 2 million, and is leaving a bloody mess behind him to get to it. Llewelyn soon discovers that Chigurh has found him, and has been to the hotel room he is staying at, not to mention his trailer home.
Sherriff Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) is caught up in the search for mass murderer Anton Chigurh, and discovers that a man he knows, Llewelyn Moss, is the pursued. Also joining the hunt for Chigurh and Moss is Carson Wells, a Texas ranger who?s mission is to locate either one of the men, or the money.
Llewelyn Moss eventually runs into trouble as Chigurh closes in, and Moss also discovers how the mad-man has been tracking him. Now more than ever, staying one step ahead is more important than anything, as Llewelyn experiences one too many close calls. Carson Wells finally tracks down Moss at a hospital, where he warns him that Anton Chigurh is not going to stop, and that to continue running is foolish. With greed being the number one motive, Llewelyn ultimately makes the choice to keep running with the 2 million dollars. With solid performances, and some of the most intense scenes in recent movie history, No Country has, for me, been one of the most thrilling and memorable movie experiences. Bloody, gruesome and bold, this film is over the top, but balanced. I am hard-pressed to find flaws, No Country is almost a perfect movie. My expectations were fulfilled, and surpassed, my mind could not stop spinning after the credits rolled.
With an ending that seems almost abrupt, but suiting and effective, No Country For Old Men becomes the definitive film about the consequences of greed. The smallest thing can bring your world crashing down, all it takes is one misguided choice.

Hard Candy
Hard Candy(2006)

Hard Candy has such an appropriate title, it works in so many different ways.
The plot itself is controversial, a young girl by the name of Hayley chats, and flirts, online with a much older man. After only a few weeks of chatting, the two decide to meet in person at a local coffee shop. Photographer Jeff Kohlver surprises Hayley by his appearence, rather good-looking and accomplished, and Hayley appears much older than just "14". After akward greetings Hayley agrees to follow Jeff to his apartment in hopes of hearing a Goldfrapp concert. Once the two are alone in the apartment, Hayley asks Jeff to photograph her like his models. Jeff agrees, the two have drinks and everything seems to be going well until Jeff feels unusually faint and collapses on the floor. When Jeff comes to, he is tied to a chair, completely confused as Hayley begins to tear through his home. Hayley then confronts Jeff, her mood and personality completely reversed. Hayley accuses Jeff of being a pedophile, and questions him as to where the evidence is. Jeff plays dumb and acts as if he is completely bewildered by what Hayley is saying. Knowing there is more to Jeff than just internet stalking, Hayley brings up the subject of a young girl who disappeared, and is connected to Jeff. Hayley is convinced that the young girl is a victim of the photographer, and plans to find evidence to prove it.
While searching for proof, Jeff screams for help, he begins to panic and offers Hayley money to let him go. The film becomes to intense when the victim changes between both characters, it is a very unusual portrayal of the good and evil.
After much confrontation, Hayley finally comes across of what she is looking for, and now truely believes that Jeff is responsible for a missing girl's death. Jeff is tortured with the idea of Hayley calling the one woman he loved and revealing his secrets, and now he fears for his life.
Hard Candy is such a fantastically directed film, the camera work is superb and really adds to the movie's effectiveness. The acting from the very small cast is top-notch and I never lost interest. The plot was so interesting to follow, there is so much to it yet it's all clouded in mystery. The entire film is open to so many possibilities and explanations that it's a different experience for every viewer. This is a movie that is very underrated, and should not be overlooked.

30 Days of Night

At first I was sceptical of this movie, vampires and based off of a comic series. Usually those don't work out on their own, but together you risk having a disaster on your hands. Thankfully, David Slade knew what he had to work with, and used it to his advantage. On one hand, you know what you are going to be filming, the story line is there, and the characters are developed. On the other, you have to try to remain true to the original works, while trying to create an entirely new and exciting movie. Contradicting or not, this task tastes talent and dedication.
As soon as we get started with the movie, the plot is underway. People are trying to leave Barrow as soon as possible to avoid the month long darkness. Ben Foster is "The Stranger", a man who shows up and scares customers at a local diner with comments about their demise. He is thrown in jail and Eban (Josh Hartnett) listens as the stranger tells him that something is coming to Barrow, and it isn't going to be pretty. As soon as the sun sets, strange things begin to occur. An unsightly blizzard comes through and people start disappearing.
The vampires in this movie are truely unique, Steve Niles' graphic novels portrayed them in a way that was truely frightening and David Slade did it justice. Throughout the movie you are praying for the survivors, and anticipating what is going to happen next. I found the acting to be above horror movie standards, and everything else was quite pleasing to the eye. Although this was by no means a perfect movie, I am giving it a high rating due to the fact that I was entertained and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

The Green Mile

The Green Mile begins with an elderly man by the name of Paul Edgecomb, who is living in a retirement community. Paul breaks down from past memories and decides to tell his friend Ellie his life story. Now we get to see Paul as a young man (Tom Hanks) as a prison guard on death row.
Things had been pretty ordinary up until the point where a new inmate was being brought in. Paul, as well as the other guards are astonished, an enormous black man accused of killing two little white girls. During this time, the depression, this was the most evil thing anyone could conceive. The man accused is John Coffey, a seemingly gentle man with little intelligence.
Percy Wetmore, a young rookie with a nose in the air treats all of the inmates as if they were the lowest form. Paul, as well as the other guards, is extremely irritated with Percy and wish for nothing more than for Percy to move on and leave.
Paul and Brutus (Brutal) discover a lone mouse wandering around the prison and try to catch him, without success. Then, the mouse takes a liking to Del, and Del names the mouse Mr. Jingles, much to the dismay of Percy. Del claims the mouse is special, a circus mouse with many talents, the guards agree to humour him.
Paul suffers from an intense bladder infection that nearly renders him helpless, and one day on the block, John Coffey takes a hold of Paul and knocks the wind out of them both. John claims he has ?helped it?, uncertain of the meaning, Paul doesn?t question what happened. Then, as if by miracle, the bladder infection vanished, and Paul has no way of explaining it. Confused but curious, Paul questions John as to what he did to him, and begins to see the man?s divine powers.
Percy ends up stomping on Mr. Jingles, Del?s mouse, and appears to be quite satisfied with himself. John Coffey immediately insists that the guards give the dead mouse to him, and that he can ?take it back.? Paul agrees, and brings John Coffey Mr. Jingles. Again, they all witness a miracle. The mouse is revived, and appears to have not a scratch on him.
Now, the guards all question if John Coffey would be able to help their warden?s wife, who is sick with a brain tumour. They devise a plan to bring John to her, and erase the tumour from her body. With one of the more emotional scenes, John heals the warden?s wife, and she returns to perfect health, with no memory.
The guards and John Coffey return to the Green Mile, to let John rest, who seems to be sick with the illness he pulled out of the woman. During this time, John spills the illness into Percy, who goes insane from the experience, and shoots an inmate by the name of Wild Bill.
John tells Paul he must give some of his gift to him, to let him see what Wild Bill has done. With the joining of their hands, Paul sees the two little girls John apparently raped and murdered, alive and well. There is Wild Bill, doing odd chores for the family, eventually Bill takes the two girls in the night, rapes them and kills them.
John Coffey is too late, and cannot bring the two little girls back to life, and he is discovered with their bodies. Paul is completely dazed, unable to form words. He can truly see that John is innocent, he had never been involved in the crime he was accused of.
As John?s execution nears, Paul begins to question what is the right thing to do. Can he truly allow one of God?s miracles to die? The film reaches an emotional volcano, one of the saddest moments in film history. Afterwards, Paul decides he can no longer work as a prison guard, and transfers out.
Now, many years later, Paul invites Ellie to take a walk. He leads her to an old shed, where Mr. Jingles the mouse still resides. Ellie is completely at a loss, and can only now begin to absorb the story she was told.
One of the most emotional films I have come across, The Green Mile is beyond any doubt, one of the most beloved films in my collection. The acting, writing and overall tone, it is all beautiful and cannot be properly described. I can only recommend this film to anyone who has yet to experience it.

Eastern Promises
½

Eastern Promises leaves a gritty taste in your mouth right from the beginning. You can just predict the atmosphere from the first few minutes.
Anna Khitrova (Naomi Watts), a midwife, is on shift at a North London hospital when a teenage girl, who is obviously pregnant is rushed in. Doctors try, but fail to save the mother?s life. The baby, however, survives. Anna desperately wants to locate the baby?s relatives, so Anna discovers the teenage girl has left behind a diary that is written in Russian.
Anna?s uncle is able to translate the diary, but at first refuses to. Anna tracks down a local restaurant owner, Semyon, who is also able to translate the diary. As Semyon delves deeper into the diary he discovers that the young Russian girl has damning evidence against him, his son, and the Vory V Zakone criminal brotherhood.
Through Semyon and her uncle, Anna comes to learn that Semyon and his unstable son, Kirill (Vincent Cassel), had abused, forced into prostitution, and raped the teenage mother. With this evidence, Anna is now fearing that the Russian Mob is going to come after her, and the baby, if she doesn?t turn over the diary.
Nikolai Luzhin (Viggo Mortensen) is Semyon?s driver, but he also has involvement in the family?s crime. Anna pleads with Nikolai to help her find the baby?s family, and Nikolai is torn between his loyalty to the Vory V Zakone and his own conscience.
Eastern Promises has great story-telling to it, balanced and satisfying character development and enough to keep the viewer locked in and interested. Though not perfect, the film is brutal and honest. It doesn?t ask too much from the audience, but gives them more than they expected.

Cloverfield
Cloverfield(2008)
½

The hype around this movie has been building for quite a while - What is it that attacks New York? At last we would see the top-secret JJ Abrams film - most with different expectations. Depending on what each person thought the film might be, it may leave some disappointed.
Fortunately, for me this was not the case. I really had no clue what Cloverfield could possibly be about. Aliens? Terrorists? Earthquakes? I kept my mind open and I was ready to accept any answer - I was just all too excited to finally see this film.
This is all filmed with a handy-cam, so jittery movements and unsteady shooting is throughout. The main man of the movie Rob is going away to Japan for a job opportunity and we begin by seeing his friends filming his going away party. It is during this party that a massive explosion shakes New York and everyone rushes into panic. Rob's best friend Hud is the cameraman throughout, he makes sure to film everything as he and people around him try to escape.
It almost seems real, the way the little tape is shown, with bits of Rob and his friend/girlfriend Beth spending the day together - Which Hud accidentally taped over. Rob learns that Beth is injured and cannot move from a cell phone message, he makes the decision to go back and save her. Rob's friends find this foolish, but ultimately agree to go along and help him. Hud continues to tape as Rob, Lily and Marlena race to Beth's apartment. Eventually the monster attacking the city is caught on tape, a gigantic creature that spawns parasites that roam the grounds.
This is not a horror movie, more so a sci-fi mystery. Although there are some scares - more so just things to make someone jump - Cloverfield is an experience, it feels like a ride. I was completely locked in, the only flaw is this will never have the same impact as the very first time you see it. This film - to me - is so unique and the first groundbreaking film of the year.

Jesus Camp
Jesus Camp(2006)

One of the most disturbing and horrifying movies I have seen in recent years, and it isn't even a horror movie.
As the person that I am, I found Jesus Camp particularly hard to watch. This movie stirred up so many emotions, most of which were anger and disbelief. Although this documentary was interesting and compelling, I cannot give praise to the subject matter.
We all can have an insight on the kinds of groups existing in North America today, as most go unnoticed unless you live in the deep south. Evangelical Christians congregate in a camp to discuss the evils of the world, and the power of the Lord. I really could not have expected such devotion, and it is to the point of delusion. A woman who is so narrow-minded and devout, convinces children their souls are in for eternal hellfire if they don't do exactly as the church commands.
One can only feel pity for the children, and adults, who are so brainwashed they seem to be deep into insanity. The religious experiences are somewhat frightening, but the question is, are they real? I can only assume the experiences come from a warped sense of mind and a loss of self.
These evangelical Christians are trying to build an army of the faith by treating gullible children like cattle, and puppets to be manipulated. If this is where the future is leading, I have to say I would regret to be a part of it.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

I will start off by saying that in my opinion, this is Tim Burton's best work to date. It seems as if quirky dark films are Burton's trademark and specialty, but Sweeney Todd seems to stand out.
Most of Burton's previous films feature plenty of song, but expect a full-blown musical this time around. However, it is the music that gives this movie its flavour. Johnny Depp portrays Sweeney Todd, a.k.a. Benjamin Barker, a barber who was sent away from London by Judge Turpin (Alan Rickman). With the help of a young sailor Anthony (Jamie Campbell Bower), Todd is able to return to London and open a barber shop above Mrs. Lovett's (Helena Bonham Carter) Meat Pie Shop. With Mrs. Lovett's help, Sweeney Todd sets out to get revenge against those who captured his daughter and murdered his wife. Todd and Mrs. Lovett devise a cunning yet horrific plan to thrive the meat pie business, and let Sweeney Todd have his vengeance.
Dark and witty, Sweeney Todd is certainly one of the most unique films of the year. With a great soundtrack and comic genius only Tim Burton could provide, Sweeney Todd turned out to be one amusing and enjoyable film.

Metal: A Headbanger's Journey
½

A documentary on heavy metal music appears to only have one audience- Metalheads. However, this film is much more than just an hour and a half of metal music. This is an insightful view on the history of the music genre, and what it means to musicians, fans, and everybody else. Sam Dunn at first glance appears to be a geeky metalhead with little education, but he is a university grad that happens to have a love for heavier music.
The basic point of this documentary: Why is metal so beloved by its fans, and hated by everyone else? As a metal fan myself, I have often wondered this, and had wanted to watch this just because I am a fan of metal music. This was so much more than what I was expecting it to be. It's hard to describe how it really goes. You just get to experience and hear about the music genre from the people who know it best. Not just a movie for metalheads, but for anyone, as it proves to be insightful and an eye opener.

I Am Legend
I Am Legend(2007)

It's difficult to make a large-budget horror/thriller and maintain integrity and originality. Fortunately for movie-goers, I Am Legend keeps it's cool throughout, and ends up being an entertaining, engaging "end-of-the-world" surprise.
Robert Neville, a scientist living in New York, is the only survivor of a horrific virus outbreak that caused the entire island to be sealed off from the rest of the world. Robert and his German Shepard Sam wander the streets of New York, searching for anything to help them. You get a feel of how lonely a situation like this would actually be, as Robert speaks to mannequins as if they were alive, and everything were alright. Daylight fades, Robert and Sam run back to their home and go under lockdown. Creatures lurk around when the night is its darkest, and the audience is left wondering "what's out there?".
As the movie progresses, we discover the virus has enveloped the remaining people of New York, and turned them into pale, lifeless cannibals. I Am Legend becomes a survival film, as we root for Robert and his dog just to last through the night. Robert is convinced he will fix things, cure the disease overtaking the world and he will be able to return everything back to normal. Finally another character is introduced as a woman and her son find Robert by hearing his radio transmission. They have come to save him and take him to a safehouse where many people have gotten away and lived. Robert, being so stubborn, refuses to believe the woman and refuses to leave. The movie comes to a climax where Robert must make a decision, risk leaving the only safety he has known for a long while for something that might not even exist.
I Am Legend has some great effects, but all in all it was the story and performance by Will Smith that won me over. Intelligent acting along with a compelling story and script makes out for one good film.

Black Christmas

Oh boy. Where to even begin with this. I will start off by saying that this was hard to get into. There was nothing engaging in the first part of the film, I felt no attatchment or desire to continue watching. However, I rarely start a movie without finishing it. The characters are bland, one-dimensional, and boring. We learn nothing about them before the bloodshed begins, which makes it difficult to feel anything for them when they are getting knocked off one by one. It was a gutsy decision to use as much gore as Black Christmas did, unfortunately it was not used properly. It seemed fake, misplaced and pointless.
The acting for this seemed below standards, some of the leading ladies here have done better work elsewhere, which leads me to believe that the script and screenplay weren't any good. Moments were laughable, the acting was terrible, the story was choppy and poor, and overall I was thoroughly disappointed with Black Christmas. It takes hard work to properly film a re-make, and the effort just wasn't there.

Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights

I had the unfortunate pleasure of seeing this movie just in time for the holidays. Granted, you cannot expect much from Adam Sandler, but this just seemed unnecessary.
The animation seems somewhat of good quality, but it just doesn't make up for anything.
The story-line is simple, a man changing his ways for the better after a tramatic experience. Davey Stone, voiced by Adam Sandler, is aa pig of a man who is sentenced to community service as an assistant referee for youth basketball. Of course Davey makes things difficult as he is unwilling to change his partying ways, that is until he reconnects with a former girlfriend and has a change of heart. We learn Davey is the way he is because of his parents' death around the holidays. Simple, and everything plays out predictably.
It is not that I am expecting a masterpiece, it is just that the humour, I cannot share. The type of humour is very immature, in a way that I cannot enjoy it. To put it simply, this movie was gross, stupid and all-together bad. I am in no way a snob that can't enjoy slapstick, crude humour, but I just can't get around the fact that I hated this movie.
Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights does get points for seemingly "good" animation, and for trying to get a good message across. However, it doesn't change the fact that this movie failed in almost every aspect, and is just to put it simply, terrible.

The Hitcher
The Hitcher(2007)
½

Remakes are always sketchy, but this one proved no trouble, possibly because I have yet to see the original.
There's no boring build up of a beginning here, the movie starts off with suspense right from the get go. A young couple accidentaly almost runs over a man that seems to be having car trouble on the side of the road, thinking logically, they decide not to pick him up and move on. They decide to make a quick stop at a gas station and unfortunately, run into the man they left behind on the road. The clerk at the gas station makes the suggestion that the couple should offer the hitch hiker a lift, and Jim goes along with it.
John Ryder, the hitch hiker wastes no time in horrifying the young couple, telling them he is not trustworthy, and by pulling a knife on Grace. Jim and Grace are able to escape, for now, by pushing John out of the car and speeding away. Both shaken from the incident, the couple just wants to find a hotel to settle down and continue on their trip. John the hitcher isn't going to give up that easily, and he is able to track them down and torment the pair to a relentless degree. It's a chase now and Jim and Grace want nothing more than to just go home, and John wants nothing more than to prevent that from happening.
The hitcher executes good suspense, along with decent, if not good acting along the way. As I have yet to see the original, I have nothing to compare the remake to. I felt that The Hitcher was a good thriller, entertaining and it really kept my interest.

Beowulf
Beowulf(2007)
½

After reading some rather harsh reviews of Beowulf I have to say that I disagree with most critics. I was drawn in to the story from the beginning, despite some poor acting in parts, I was entertained. The story gets right to the point, and succeeds creating interest without being too complicated.
Beowulf becomes a hero after supposedly defeating Grendel the troll that has been terrorizing the king and his people. However, Beowulf makes the grave mistake of making a deal with Grendel's mother, who promises him royalty as long as the golden dragon horn remains in her possesion. Beowulf returns to the kingdom, claiming to have defeated Grendel's mother, but the king sees right through the lie, and proclaims Beowulf as the next king if he should pass. As planned, the king jumps off his tower and falls to his death, making the Norse warrior Beowulf king. This however, is no blessing, as Beowulf soon finds years later, when a massive gold dragon attacks. Beowulf now must prove he is the hero he made himself out to be, and this all leads to an epic battle between man and beast. This is easily the most entertaining moment of the film, where you are on the edge of your seat. I won't spoil the ending, but I will finish off by saying that this is by no means a perfect movie, it has it's flaws here and there, but there is plenty to enjoy if you keep an open mind.

American Beauty

Look Closer. This movie is art on film, one of my top favourites, American Beauty truely is beautiful. Immediately you get a feel for Lester's character, as he goes through a mid-life crisis, and tries to reconnect with his family. Lester's daughter Jane is unsure of herself, and her best friend Angela is a outwardly confident teenager. Jane and her new neighbor Ricky become involved, as she tries to avoid her father at all costs. Carol, Lester's wife, is having a meltdown of her own. Her realestate business is crumbling and she begins an affair with "the realestate king". Everything around Lester Burnam is out of sorts, yet everyone seems to think he is the only crazy one. However, Lester is the most rational, finally doing the things he wants to do, and begins his life for the first time. Tragedy strikes this movie, but it is more of a feeling of completion at the end. Things finally come to a close, but leave much for the imagination.

Seed of Chucky

"Should have stopped at Bride of Chucky." Those were the first words out of my mouth after watching this. Chucky is back, sort of. It's not the Chucky I remember, and I happened to love the old Child's Play movies. It seems as if they have changed the character completely to extend a joke that just isn't funny anymore. Don't get me started on the plot, whoever green-lighted this must have been under the psychotics of drugs. We begin with low par acting, add a few cups of fake gore, and top it off with many inconsistencies. With these ingredients we were able to make one of the worst horror movie spin offs in years. Talk about beating a dead horse, this one just didn't know where or when to stop. I have the answer, you should have stopped before it began.

Trekkies
Trekkies(1999)

One of the more disturbing documentaries I have come across in the last while. Why? Star Trek fans that take everything to a whole new level! You almost don't know if to laugh or just shake your head. Is this all real? I certainly don't doubt that, Star Trek is a cultural phenomenon. Whether you like it or not, it's hard to not agree that the series set the mold for the television we watch today. This is almost like home movies from various conventions, and it's interesting to say the least. If you're not planning to attend a Trek con any time soon, you can experience it without the humiliation of being spotted there. You can't really take something like this too seriously, just expect to hear a lot of fans gushing about their favourite series of all time!

Capote
Capote(2005)

Truely worthy of his acadamy award, Philip Seymour Hoffman delivers one of the best performances of his career. Capote is one of those true crime dramas that can truely shock a person. I was so impressed with the acting, direction and screenplay for this movie, that I didn't want it to end. Watch Truman Capote befriend the two "Clutter Family" killers, and promise them anything just to get more for the greatest book he would ever write "In Cold Blood." Who are the bad guys in this movie? The murderers of a farm family in Kansas, or Truman Capote, the writer who seems to get whatever he wants? You feel for Capote, who has a deep connection with one of the killers, and you also sympathize with Perry Smith, one of the men sentenced to death. We watch and listen in as both their lives are changed forever by the conviction, and by the most famous book by Truman Capote, "In Cold Blood."

1408
1408(2007)
½

1408 isn't what you think, not another run of the mill supernatural ghost story. At first glance, this may be your first impression. However as we get more involved with the movie, we adapt to the main character. Michael Enslin is researching a new ghost story for his next book and decides to stay in the so-called haunted motel room, 1408. Big mistake, although Michael is doubtful at first, he soon goes through enough trauma to drive anyone mad. A great adaptation of the Stephen King novel, 1408 really gets a person nervous. All you can think is, what's happening next? Is he going to escape? Is this a dream? What's real? What's not? Throughout all this guesing, 1408 turned out to be an enjoyable movie. Though it does not have award-worthy performances, nor a completely unique story-line, it's still worth a watch. I will call this a good movie, one of the better supernatural horror movies in the past few years.

Bug
Bug(2006)

With a slow beginning, Bug has a hard time keeping me locked in. However, I put forth patience and continue to watch. Things get a tad more interesting as the main character Agnes has taken in a drifter and begun a relationship. This whole movie has an air about it, that is creepy and disturbed. Don't go in expecting to get scared, the tagline "One of the most disturbing horror movies imaginable" is misleading. This film is a disturbing thriller, and will not give you any jolts. The acting is either good at times, or really fake. There was no happy medium, I was somewhat disappointed because of what I had heard about Bug. This is a movie about insanity and psychosis, but it never really lead anywhere. I felt as if this were a rough draft and I never saw the final copy. I will end this by stating that I did not hate nor love this movie, I am neutral towards it.

House of Wax
House of Wax(2005)

At first glance this movie could be passed off as another common horror movie, and in a way it is. However, there are elements of creativity here, along with some suspense moments. Although the acting may not be up to standard, and the gore can be somewhat unrealistic, this was actually entertaining to watch.

Running With Scissors

After an onslaught of terrible movies over the past few days, it was such a breath of fresh air to watch Running with Scissors. This film captivated me from the very beginning, with strange yet amusing scenes. You grow towards the characters, learning more and more about them as the movie progresses. It's hard to believe that this film was based upon someone's life. It's quirky and bizzare, yet touching and meaningful. I now only want to read the personal memoirs.

Superbad
Superbad(2007)

Destined to be one of the greatest comedies in the last 20 years. Although this film is chocked full of crude humour, it's highly entertaining. If you crave the vulgarity, which makes this movie so entertaining, this one's for you. Superbad is Supergood.

Zodiac
Zodiac(2007)

There is something utterly unsettling about the realism of this movie. The murder scenes, the Zodiac letters, it all feels as if it were happening right now. Zodiac is a movie that pulls you in, you feel like you're right there as everything takes place. Although you may know the true story, Zodiac keeps you guessing with excellent suspense and mystery.

Halloween
Halloween(2007)
½

I was sceptical, in fact I had many doubts. This remake surprised me, it was entertaining, somewhat frightening and altogether interesting. The beginning was by far my favourite, but things escaladed towards the end with nail biting moments. Perhaps the gore factor was over the top for some, but if you're looking for it, you came to the right place.

Halloween
Halloween(1978)
½

Excellent, what a classic

Blades of Glory
½

After hearing so much about how hilarious this movie is, I had to see for myself. It doesn't disappoint in that category. Although sometimes cheezy comedy, it's nice just to sit back and watch something that is just meant to make you laugh.

The New World
½

The visuals in this film are stunning, this might be the most beautiful movie of the last 10 years. Thankfully the movie has more to offer, although parts are slow paced, the plot locks you in as it moves along. With an ending that came as a surprise for those who do not know the true story, this film was a joy to watch.

Squirm
Squirm(1976)

A movie about electrified worms? Maybe at the time this was terrifying, although I can't really picture it. I can't tell if I was just bored, but this seemed hard to follow. I wouldn't consider this a classic, there's just too many flaws.

Sleepover Nightmare

All I could think after seeing this movie was; I can't believe I sat through the whole thing. Mind you, it was fun to watch. This film was so absurdly terrible that it was comical. It was entertaining to predict what would happen next, and this movie was very predictable. The classic character molds were all there, the jock, the nerd, the vixen, the innocent virgin, the stoner, etc. The killer? A rastafarian looking weirdo that for some reason, knew kung fu. Perhaps that was somewhat original. This movie only made me laugh. I may have given this more stars if it was a spoof of horror films, but it was completely serious. If you want a horror movie so stupid and laughable, this might be your best choice.

Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon
½

Ingenious filmmaking, off to a slow but interesting start, Behind The Mask gets your attention by acting as a documentary. Getting into the mind of a serial slasher, we follow "Leslie Vernon" around as he describes his killing sprees, and plans his next. Things certainly get more interesting as you realize how carefully calculated the plans are, and Leslie makes sure to point out the most common slasher/survival horror movie cliches. A twist approaches as the move transcends from a documentary to a horror movie, and every possible outcome has been carefully premeditated. With humor entangled in gore, Behind the Mask makes for a pretty good watch.

Sherrybaby
Sherrybaby(2006)

Maggie Gyllenhaal delivers an excellent performance, one that boosts her career farther into greatness. The movie itself is disturbing, and eye opening. The ending however, is where Sherrybaby loses points, in an opportunity for a completion, there is no real conclusion.

Disturbia
Disturbia(2007)

Quite the satisfying thriller, with twists and suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat. An interesting and amusing plot makes for a great movie.

Resident Evil: Apocalypse
½

In a way the creativity is there, but not used to its full potential. Acting is out of sorts and choppy, a big drop from the first film. Hopefully the third and final installment will repair what the second has damaged.

The Simpsons Movie

Helps you relive the hilarious moments of the show, this movie surprised me by being insightfully funny and having touching moments. The Simpsons Movie however, does lose points by having a score that I found to be out of place, and a lack of some characters. Other than that, this one turned out to be a good surprise.

Freddy Got Fingered

Why was this ever made? The reason is beyond me. I can't even comprehend how terrible this was. It boggles my mind.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

A great addition to the series., however there was lots left out from the book. In spite of that, this was still enjoyable and had almost everything a Harry Potter film should.

300
300(2007)
½

A strong contender for the best movie of 2007. Seeping with creativity and eye candy, this movie shouldn't be missed.

Ratatouille
Ratatouille(2007)
½

Once again Pixar belts out another animated masterpiece. Enjoyable on so many levels, it's hard to pick a top moment. The story is fantastic, the characters are fantastic, hard to find a flaw in this movie.

Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus

A hidden gem, a misunderstood wonder. Disturbing yet interesting.

Bully
Bully(2001)
½

Disturbing, but realistic.

Saving Private Ryan

Great war movie, long winded at times, pays off for those with patience

Shrek the Third

Really adorable and funny, I was surprised. I would have thought Shrek lost it's touch.

Saving Silverman

Actually funnier than I was expecting, some of the humor is tasteless, but otherwise not a bad comedy.

Kung Pow! Enter the Fist
½

Crude, I admit I let out a small laugh, but this was made for 12 year old boys.

Cabin Fever
Cabin Fever(2002)

Sometimes scary, sometimes stupid. There wasn't a happy middle but it could have been worse.

Daredevil
Daredevil(2003)

Surprisingly tollerable considering Ben-Can't-Act was the main character.

Hulk
Hulk(2003)

Might be Ang Lee's worst, not sure why he took on this project, perhaps it was damaged beyond repair.

Star Trek - Nemesis
½

A lot better than I thought it was going to be, surprisingly interesting for a non-Trek fan.

Lilo & Stitch
½

Somewhat of a good Disney film, but it is brought down by an extremely annoying main character.

Men in Black II
½

Doesn't live up to the original, which I consider somewhat of a classic.

The Time Machine
½

I enjoyed this one, although parts were lacking in the effects department.

The Mothman Prophecies
½

A good, pleasing thriller. Delivered more than I was expecting.

The Others
The Others(2001)

Errie, and a good ending, although a bit foreshadowed.

Planet of the Apes

An alright action movie, interesting at times. Don't expect award winning performances, or effects. Just expect a movie you would watch on TV.

Down to Earth

Annoying throughout most of the movie, but there were some funny moments. Not enough to save the film.

Lost Souls
Lost Souls(2000)
½

An average mystery/horror/thriller... Just didn't live up to any expecations.

Little Miss Sunshine

A really great film, simple, short and sweet.

Dinosaur
Dinosaur(2000)
½

It was alright for its time I guess, I didn't really enjoy it.

Stigmata
Stigmata(1999)

Average, but with some interesting moments. This is sitting between 3 stars and 3 and a half stars. I felt it deserved only 3.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
½

I really found this one to be the best of the prequel trilogy

AVP - Alien Vs. Predator
½

In one word, terrible. Of course this seems like a rip off of Freddy vs Jason, and it pretty much is. The effects seem below par for the time, and the story line as udderly unrealistic. The acting is really mediocre, and hard to handle. Not interesting to see two characters battle when they weren't interesting characters to begin with. Avoid unless you are a fan.

Friday the 13th
½

Errie and spooky, the ultimate classic!

Saw III
Saw III(2006)
½

Once again the acting was not really up to standards but the creativity and deaths were more interesting, in a way. Long story short, better than the second, not as good as the first.

Final Destination

Creative death scenes, and an overall good flow to a movie. Acting is mediocre but what do you expect for a horror movie?

Nightmare on Elm Street, Part 2: Freddy's Revenge

Another great instalment to the series, this one was hilarious, as usual. Was it just me or were there many homosexual moments in this movie? :)

Proof
Proof(2005)

Intelligent and gripping

Casino Royale
½

Might be the best James Bond yet, I don't doubt that. Casino Royale has one of the most interesting plots for a JB movie, and certainly doesn't cut corners on action.

Pan's Labyrinth
½

Amazingly directed and acted, a bizarre tale that stands halfway in dream and reality. A must see.

The Departed
The Departed(2006)
½

An amazing, over the top, gritty crime drama. This movie doesn't skimp on anything, truely deserving of the awards it received.

V for Vendetta
½

Brilliant! Great adaptation of the graphic novel

Wes Craven's New Nightmare

Hilarious, not sure if these movies were meant to be funny, but there certainly is a comical air about them.

Moon Child
Moon Child(2004)

I don't know what to say about this movie, it's a movie featuring 2 famous Japanese singers. How good could it be? Perhaps this movie was made for the fans of Gackt and Hyde, and I am just not a fan.

Shallow Hal
Shallow Hal(2001)
½

The Farrelly brothers dropped the ball on this one. I'm sure this movie was meant to have a good meaning to it, that people shouldn't be judged by their outward appearences, but this fell short. Sure, the main character learns he loves a girl despite her being obese, but this movie never drops the fat jokes. We get it, she's fat. Move on.

Fatal Attraction

I love watching this movie on a saturday morning, it's a great thriller that shouldn't be overlooked.

Miami Vice
Miami Vice(2006)

I like Colin Farrell and all, but this movie just didn't have what I was looking for.

Boys Don't Cry
½

An amazing story that ends in tragedy. Really did the real story justice.

Vera Drake
Vera Drake(2004)
½

Wonderful, really a hidden gem

Get Real
Get Real(1999)
½

A hidden gem, many people miss this movie because of it's genre. Not for everyone, but people with an open mind might enjoy it.

The Devil Wears Prada

This movie is a fantastic, upbeat comedy and it had many hidden surprises. This movie made Anne Hathaway a more likeable actress and gave Meryl Streep another outstanding role.

The Woodsman
The Woodsman(2004)

Great, what a turnaround for Kevin Bacon!

Elephant
Elephant(2003)

A disturbing realistic look into High School life. The perspective and approach on this movie is very interesting and effective.

The Descent
The Descent(2006)

A terrifying thrill ride that never lets up. I was so pleasently surprised by this horror movie. Much better than I was expecting, check this out for sure if you like horror movies.

Jarhead

Fargo

Outstanding!

Friday the 13th, Part VI - Jason Lives

Lots of Jason to enjoy, but it's not perfect. I still enjoyed it a lot though.

Friday the 13th, Part V - A New Beginning
½

Great twist at the end, but I felt that the "half-way" house was too unrealistic. All in all this is another great add on to the series, more Jason, and more murders.

Friday the 13th - The Final Chapter
½

Not as good as the first 3 before it, but Friday the 13th part 4 does deliver Jason at the end.

Friday the 13th Part 3
½

Great continuation, I enjoyed this one a lot. more Jason!

Friday the 13th Part 2
½

I really enjoyed this movie, I know it is seen as a terrible movie, but I think it deserves more credit. As good as the first, and it gives more of a story-line

Akira
Akira(1988)

Wonderful! As good as the manga, if not better!

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Gruesome and a groundbreaker, it is amazing what these filmmakers were able to create with such a small budget.

Clerks II
Clerks II(2006)
½

Awesomely outrageous
Great humor with some added touches, I loved this movie.

Freddy vs. Jason
½

I'm not sure why, this movie is so.. stupid, but I love it.
Plently of Jason and Freddy, and gory deaths to enjoy. The creators really did the characters justice, everything felt right.

Braveheart
Braveheart(1995)

One of Mel's best, brilliant acting and directing. Do not shy away from this one because it's a long movie.

Clerks
Clerks(2001)

A fantastically funny short cartoon, fans of the movie "clerks" may or may not like this, all I know is I sure did.

Clerks: The Lost Scene
½

A little slow a first, but a hilarious, fantastic ending

Clerks
Clerks(1994)
½

A hilarious look inside clerk-work. This movie holds true to real life, and is a must see.

Brokeback Mountain

Words cannot describe everything wonderful about this movie. This is an emotional experience.

Silent Hill
Silent Hill(2006)

Great game adaptation, however, this would be very hard to follow for non-silent hill fans. The acting is so-so, bit the film tries to make up for it with interesting creatures and creepy scenery. With a glance, I feel too generous giving it 3 stars, but there are some worth-while scenes in the movie. An interesting score for the movie also gives it points. As a closing, this isn't for everyone, so watch with caution.

Back to the Well: Clerks II

A fantasic documentary on the making of one of the funniest movies out there: Clerks 2

Slipknot: Voliminal: Inside The Nine
½

People have had mixed reviews of this dvd, and I can see why. I started watching it expecting what I've heard, and I have to say it was better than what I was expecting. I do agree that the packaging is misleading, the information on the back of the dvd makes it seem like there is more than what is actually on the dvds.
I do have to say that I did enjoy the Slipknot "home movies", it was a great view. This is certainly not for everyone. But I recommend it to any other "maggot" :)

Guns, God and Government World Tour

A fantastic live tour, I could watch it so many times.
If you like Manson, this is a must.

Milk Money
Milk Money(1994)

An average "B" movie, but it was enjoyable while I was at work and had nothing else to do.

Shrek 2
Shrek 2(2004)
½

Great, as good as the first.

Friday the 13th - From Crystal Lake to Manhattan
½

A great series, since Jason is my favourite horror villan, I enjoyed this set from start to finish.

Friday the 13th Part VIII - Jason Takes Manhattan

My least favourite of the series, there seems to be a lack of consistency. Many mistakes were evident and I felt this director did not stay faithful to the previous movies. Jason's new look as a child and as an adult were not an improvement and I didn't like them at all. However, there was still plenty of Jason mayhem to enjoy.

Friday the 13th Part VII - The New Blood

Lots of Jason in this one, and he has the best look ever seen in the series. This one keeps you hooked from beginning to end.

The Forgotten

A typical thriller, but actually not that bad. I enjoyed it, but I don't recommend it to everyone.

Alice in Wonderland

A fantastic movie, I can still enjoy it to this day

Jason Goes to Hell - The Final Friday

A little weak, but it does give some back story. I'm not sure if the story for this one was the way to go, but there were promising moments. The ending seemed too "Nightmare on Elm Street" -ish to be Friday the 13th. However, there were some creative, bloody deaths, and some nods to the original Fridays.

The Shawshank Redemption
½

Gets better every time I watch it

Jason X
Jason X(2002)

I heard nothing but terrible reviews for this movie, so I was not expecting much.
I enjoyed this movie more than I should have.
It's Jason, how could I not?
However, this movie comes with bad acting, a inconsistent story-line, and well, everything a typical Jason movie has.
I see this movie as a possible future for Jason, not as the reality for the character.
All I really have to say is, I was expecting Jason to slash around and kill, and he did. So I am satisfied.

Suspiria
Suspiria(1977)

Errie, creative and utterly spooky. However, I just didn't appreciate it as much as other people did

The Hills Have Eyes

A great original scare, but I have to admit I like the remake better

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

One of the best horror remakes I've seen so far

Disgusting and shocking, it was awesome, just as entertaining as the first, if not more.
