Quentin Tarantion's love for Hollywood nostalgia while tackling mid-life crisis and culture. I fell in love watching this epic little piece.
Pretty awesome little musical from the twisted mind of John Waters. Set in pre-Beatlesmania, Hairspray stars Ricki Lake as an upbeat plum girl Tracy whose desire of dancing will not only gain her popularity, but lessons and friends. Excellent soundtrack and wonderful supporting cast makes it hard not to smile.
In a theater of superheroes, live animated children's fairy tales, and PG 13 horror, the Nice Guys burst in with fresh hybrid of comedy and drama and action with Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling. I was pretty surprise how refreshing this film is and setting in a 1970's Los Angeles.
Energetic beginning and really sweet ending and a bore and obvious cliche center in this laugh free comedy that tries to be funny and lectures in one's self with a thin papered obnoxious supporting cast aside from Kevin Dunn. I did not laugh once and just watched this. Tackling on a premise I have seen in the 40 Year Old Virgin or Adventureland, a film that was actually funny, our two main characters Anne and Jeff try grow and change their personality with Anne turning into an alcoholic turrets girl and Jeff transforming into a douche after knocking a douche. Every other character is caricature of a stereotype from the nerds to the blond brainless female talking about her profile pic. I could not help, but to jeer at the middle which is a shame after laugh free, but charismatic opening.
Pretty good film although I never found myself singing to the songs they had like "Let It Go" or "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman". (I prefer "Let's Build a Snowman". One thing troubled me about this film and it was the troll's advice which started and ended the problem. Not to mention the use of obsolete weapons in the 19th Century. Anyways, the film takes the themes we have grown familiar in Disney princess films and twist it with both strong gender leading roles with humorous scenes which of course gained controversy nonetheless. The plot, think of True Grit only family friendly and replace murder and bounty with lost and discover after Elsa runs away from her kingdom.
So much more enjoyable and suspenseful than American Horror Story season one.
In life, you will have people that will laugh and say "You can't remake a classic?" The case has been mostly true throughout this generation starting Marcus Nispel's remake that launched dozens of remakes. Before that film, we had a remake of Psycho which was panned. However, this idea did not affect a young Werner Herzog's Nosferatu- the Vampyre. His vision of the 1922 classic is an incredible masterpiece. Its tone and gloomy atmosphere defines horror and the end of times as Count Dracula spread his terror and this time with no legal issues. Set in Gothic Germany, the film follows the basic plot and key characters of a Dracula film. If you have seen the original Dracula, you know what is to happen. Artistically shot and vision by Herzog, the film is pure poetry which is what imagine Herzog's films like. The film is not without its terrific performances Klaus Klinski as Count Dracula, Isabelle Adjani as Lucy Harker, Bruno Ganz as Johnathan Harker, and Walter Ladengast as Van Helsing. Klinksi's Count Dracula is a solemn heinous and evil with much disgust and creepy. His encounter with Lucy is one of my favorite.
If you seen the trailers for Cannibal Holocaust or Cannibal Ferox, this film will want you feigning for more. With those two films, they were pretty darn cruel due to the animals being killed onscreen, imaginative torture, and rape. Yet, Cannibal Holocaust was to criticize the media as monsters while Cannibal Ferox was rather mean spirited. This left to wonder what direction would have Eli Roth went? He has of course portrayed his dislike for American ignorance in the film Hostel much to the dismay of the Slovakian government. Here, people have already screamed foul at Mr. Roth for exploiting natives and expressing racist attitudes towards them which ironically are the people Roth has targeted. Self righteous people often coined as social justice warriors, Roth has expressed his detested on film and has served in platter for his and anyone's pleasure who has been fed up with trolls. Yes, the people in the film are described as complacent and self righteous tools who are tortured in imaginative ways. To me, I felt like I was watching Roth's fantasies in one scene where one the fat guy has senses revoked from him. Thank you for being a useless pain in my behind, so I am going take away your right. We of course then have the female we believe is going to survive. She's naive and believes she can save the world and dreams of stopping female circumcision which we unfortunately see photos of in one class lecture before randomly moving to a lesson about ants. I have feeling those two subjects will appear in the film later. I really like Roth's expression here by flipping the bird or slicing at the target he has felt hostility. The complain about the so-called justice warriors I believe I tried to understand are that a lot of them do nothing, but rant on the Internet and feel that life and expression should meet "their" (if it's based on one person or an entire) requirements. These aren't the people that after real life issues, but go after the entertainment industry or entertainers or artist for a content they either did not agree or were offended. The better explanation came AlphaOmegaSin whose rant on YouTube was one I love. He went after so-called social justice warriors who rather have interest in complaining a video game or about music will make the(ir) world a better place. Unlike Malala Yousafzai who was shot for advocating human rights and education for women in women, the social justice warriors come off as twenty first century Tipper Gore in a nutshell. Roth of course takes that nut and smashes to his imaginative fullest extreme. However, his film is without its flaws like following the same standard of a slasher film with females being tortured with worries of the on the genitalia. Guys suffer horrendously too, but never do we worry about the attack on the genitals. There is one scene of course with a tarantula, but we won't see animal cruelty. A lot of subjects and themes in cannibal genres are very moderate if you seen the cannibal genre. What we are left is Eli Roth's take on the cannibal genre that is not as horrible as I expected it to be and often ridiculed with off the wall humor. Of course, the thing Green Inferno suffers from is it explores areas that were already explored in South Park's episode, "Rainforest Shmainforest". However, for Roth's unapologetic film, I will recommend and give Green Inferno three stars. I thinks it's good, but I did wanted more after seeing the trailer for Cannibal Holocaust and Ferox.
Note: word was the Eli Roth showed the villagers in Peru the film Cannibal Holocaust who then gleefully agreed to do the move. Neocolonialism.
The Prophecy II is like watching the film the Terminator with an angelic twist to it. The film stars Christopher Walken as a cooky renegade angel Gabriel. He's the terminator in the film with personality of a goofy mob boss along with him is Brittany Murphy as one of Gabriel's slaves. Jennifer Beals is the Sarah Connor of the film with very little energy as well as Russell Wong taking on Michael Biehn's role as the protector. Hey why not throw Glenn Danzig as Samayel in the mix? Much of the plot is Gabriel (Walken) hunting down Valerie (Beals) to end a long and bloody war going on in heaven among the angels. Gabriel may have the power to silence people, but is pretty much clueless throughout the entire, but always entertaining. Walken, who's really great in here, is pretty much the only reason to watch this lackluster sequel with an even boring finale that left out Viggo Mortensen.
It still hits very deep. Really power film dramatizing the events that happened on September 11, 2001 as four planes were hijacked. Of the four, one plane, United Airlines Flight 93, passengers went for an all or nothing action. Still, to this day, the scars and wounds are still there. Paul Greengrass's powerful re-creation of the devastating event is both sad, but not without hope to see. I watched in dread, for I knew the ending. However, I felt hope and inspired as ordinary citizens go for the impossible.
Enjoyable to say at least.
It's pretty okay that leaves you nostalgic for the first two Terminator films. It's loaded with a lot of CGI action and aging jokes.
Hybrid dinosaur, what can go wrong? Jurassic World is an action film with mostly superficial characters and a disaster waiting to happen which most likely will. Where's Ian Malcolm to do the math? The film stars Bryce Dallas Howard as the amusement park's manager. She and few other tops are on the verge of releasing their next attraction a hybrid dinosaur. Chris Pratt is a Velociraptor trainer who is pestered by Hoskin to exploit his raptors and later sucked into finding two kids who have become lost in Jurassic World. The film is pretty good in the action scenes with a lot of the violence usually toned with a few blood splats. The special effects are pretty good and the dinosaurs are very impressive.
Boy was this film Dope.
Zombie Beavers, I don't have to explain the plot. I just have to tell you what this film has, for starters there are three really dumb best friends with the lead being the prude, the virgin, and the betrayed in contrast to her two voluptuous best friends. We have the hunter. Finally, we have the beavers who die and become a zombie thanks to two of the dumbest truck drivers in film history. The film is pretty much tongue in cheek and surprisingly funny and entertaining. Yes, there is a lot of nudity in this film and looking at the beaver teeth, I can't help, but predict someone getting it in the wiener.
Really wicked film based on the novel with the same name, Battle Royale places 41 students in an island where they have to kill each other. The film relentlessness in violence will definitely sicken viewers. It's a must watch! Arrow to the head, one student down and there are forty more to go!
Aside from the atrocious performances, mean spirited vibe, cynical plotting, and downright moronic twist, Stephen King's Thinner works best as a comedy, a really bad and unfunny comedy about a gypsy who curses an obese lawyer. Billy Halleck manages to get himself out of trouble after running over an old gypsy woman. Her father is unsatisfied with the outcome, so he places a curse on Billy. Billy starts to realize that losing weight at a rapid rate can be terrifying. Some of his colleagues start to feel the affects that may kill them. Thinner then takes a twisted turn into some unnecessary turns from the possibility of an unfaithful wife to the mafia. Joe Mantegna plays the mob boss who decides to help out Billy. Mantegna, who plays Fat Tony on the Simpsons, is definitely the most entertaining character here. This film is fat on crap.
LAME!!! It's also mean spirited without any real value or excitement into a real taboo subject.
