Macbeth
Macbeth (1971)

½

Not great, not bad. If you want to see Macbeth on film, there isn't much choice aside from Roman Polanski's version. Don't go out of your way to see it, but if you happen to stumble across it and you've just been dying to see a Macbeth movie (. . . riiight . . .) by all means, enjoy.

Ju-on 2 (Ju-on: The Grudge 2)
7 years ago via Flixster

This is a remarkable movie. When compared to American films of a similar nature, the ghost stories of Asia tend to be subtly crafted tales of chilling suspense host to a plethora of pasty yurei wielding the power of unrelenting, unblinking passive-aggressiveness. Ju-on, however, is refreshingly different. The bizarre imagery and surreal plot typical of J-horror spook stories are present in force, but Ju-on's token onryo is one so hell-bent on vengeance she is unafraid to wreck all manners of creative, bloody havoc on-screen. Thus is crafted the perfect storm: J-horror subtlety and quirkiness meets the Western slasher mentality head-on. (A formula that is still being copied!) The result is an extremely frightening, haunting film that is equal parts strange, atmospheric, and in-your-face scary. A definite must-see for all genre fans, and my #1 recommendation for all desiring their first taste of Asian horror.
