This is a great documentary about hip-hop culture. Really, it?s about the ?five? elements (beatboxing included) and how they are perceived by insiders and how these insiders reflect on how the mainstream sees it. It is really just a good documentary about the scenes and how many try to keep them true to their origins while it was bound to be polluted by others.
There is a great collection of interviews by many luminaries and an interesting tangent with C. Delores Tucker?s blind opposition to the music. It doesn?t get really preachy and gives a lot of historical background while still keeping a good pace with some good music and never dwelling too long on a point that didn?t need the extra time. A textbook kind of documentary that?s just fine a neat little summary of it all with some POVs. In the meantime, download Del?s new LP for free from his site. Even in Apple Lossless. http://delthefunkyhomosapien.bandcamp.com/
Sorry for the shameless plug - but it's great music.
This was a movie with a interesting idea and excellent cast that really just squandered it on...I'm not sure what. It just kind of wandered around real action and portrayed itself as something floating in the middle of the giant expanse of the ocean. Wait, that's what this movie is about.
So, with that, this movie really shouldn't have had the effect that it did have when it jumped back in time. It was all way to coincidental while still managing to really do nothing at all in the grand scheme of things. And there were already the tools then and even in WWII that this really would have caused something to resonate into the "present" besides the twist.
This movie is really just moderate for what should have been a lot more interesting.
I couldn't really think of a better way movie to start describing this in comparison, and really I shouldn't compare it and take it for its own merits. However, this falls plainly in the category of The Human Centipede and Hostel (I haven't seen Hostel, but I know what it's about). However, this one takes it to a well perverse level that is supposed to be unexpected, but is well telegraphed.
Still, there is a weird entertainment value in it. And it's not really suspense as much as curiosity and morbid guile. It goes exactly where you think it will, but you keep watching. You want something really off the wall to happen, besides the main premise.
But it really never does. And really gets cheesy toward the middle. And there's where it falls next to Human Centipede.
This is pretty bad, even for a B-iehn movie (I crack me up. And probably only me). But aside from a really awkward attempt at being a buddy movie with no real chemistry,the action is really plain. Biehn is good, not his great self. And I honestly didn't even notice Faye Dunaway, who I guess was in it according to Flixster was in the movie. The korean guy really shouldn't have tried. Cary is good.
But the example is set right from the beginning. The set-up murder in the first scene is plain and leads you into...nothing. But did I mention Michael Biehn is in it?
There is no way I can review this movie without SPOILERS. So be ready. Or, better yet, just read this and skip the movie - unless you are a Zellwegger or BRadley Cooper fan.
This movie is not scary at all, which is bad when it is in that category. Worse yet, the acting seems wooden and the story is a mash up of so many cliches that there is nothing interesting to be said about it. Worst of all, the demon in the girl that is powerful enough to break open the barricaded door can't get out of a car trunk? Maybe it's water weight? Either way, I didn't get the menace too much. And with that, the movie is no threat to my senses.
