Just noted SKY Movies is showing "Terminal Error" at 4:25am this morning. Having seen this crap before, I won't be staying up for it. Why, you may ask?
[list][*]crap SFX;[*]definitely [b]not [/b]the greatest movie Michael Nouri, Marina Sirtis or Timothy Busfield has appeared in;[*]Matthew Ewald acting skills - non-existent. Watching him is like watching Wil Wheaton years ago on ST:TNG - painful.[/list]Take my advice - avoid this drivel at all costs (Catwoman is a work of art by comparison).
"Melancholia" is a diaster movie, where the viewer already knows the ending (goodbye, Earth) and is a long (over 2 hours), beautifully filmed, yet at times painful study of depression.
The film is a study of two sisters - part one focusing on Justine (played by Kirsten Dunst), whose wedding day begins with such promise for the future, but ends in ashes. One really felt like screaming at the rest of the cast to recognise Justine's self-destructive plea for help, and Kirsten Dunst deserves the accolades for her role.
Part two turns to sister Claire (Charlotte Gainsbourg) who takes a now visibly depressed Justine into her home, much to the annoyance of husband John (Kiefer Sutherland). Meanwhile Claire struggles to cope with her own rising anxieties over the passing of the planet Melancholia, which all the scientists claim will miss Earth (but we already know THAT outcome).
If you're looking for special effects then Melancholia isn't for you - and (to me) it is a difficult film to appreciate. But if you looking for more than the standard Hollywood fare for sci-fi, then give "Melancholia" a chance.
Super 8 has been described as "The Goonies vs Colverfield" - but I think it deserves better than that. I thought it was a decent life-affirming movie, with obvious comparisons to Spielberg.
My sole disappointment was with the ending, but I guess that's the problem with getting older - the ability to suspend belief is replaced with cynicism...
I avoided watching "Paranormal Activity" for a VERY long time. After the bore-fest that was Blair Witch, I was wary of this flick - did it deserve the hype surrounding it?
Having seen it last night, Paranormal Activity deserves the hype. The story is very simple - and unsettling.
I feel sorry for Michelle Yeoh & Charlotte Rampling - both actresses deserve beteer than appearing in this sometimes convoluted, mostly confusing film?
