Sometimes you'll see a remake that you will want to watch even though you know it will kinda suck but you'll just be there for the gore and the mediocre story. Unfortunately though, Texas Chainsaw is NOT it. And I don't mean that in a good way. This movie made me say, "What in the actual fuck?". It's so utterly cliched and predictable and unrealistic and bland that it makes me feel embarrassed for Leatherface for being in this abomination of a film. It's like a bad direct to DVD movie made to waste your time and money.
This film may be the most frustrating thing I've ever seen since France's "Them". It's entertaining in a bad way. It makes me wanna construct some chemical formula and create a vortex from my screen to the film and b*tchslap each and every character here--and maybe shove my kitchen knife in some of them, too. It's like the world's most clueless set of characters met (by some unexpected trick of fate) and put them in a predicament that kept on twisting and twisting towards worse because of their sheer irrationality and idiocy. If I have to give this film points for being a film, I'll give it quite a good score for its disturbing nature and entertainment value. But as I said, it is very very frustrating and it only left me depressed after watching it so I'll give it one star out of five.
A good concept down the drain. The acting was cheesy, the script was cheesy, the action was cheesy, the effects was a wee bit cheesy, too. All in all, Drive Angry is just a big pizza full of cheese and nothing more. Nicholas Cage was just there to suck everything that's good, while Amber Heard was just there to be pretty.
Though Bruce Willis' character was quite annoying, there's no denying that 12 Monkeys lived up to its good premise. The plot twists (especially on the end) were very surprising, ad Brad Pitt creates a very effective antagonist.
Christian Bale in his most controversial role. The Machinist swirled like a washing machine, putting us deeper and deeper into the eye of insanity in this dark psychological thriller. However, as satisfyingly rugged the machine had operated, it had been overheated a little bit and reaches a certain point where you want to push the 'off' button.
Though undeniably tensed and thrilling, Ils didn't get away from two things that I hate about horror films: First, the dumb/annoying protagonists. Secondly, were the unexplained superpowers of the antagonists, which (in this particular film) were super elusiveness, levitation, can pass through walls and invisibility.
A bloody and rampant thriller that also grasped the themes of politics and--if not--the system of the Korean law-enforcement. The Chaser was honest and (as I've noticed in ever Korean film) pure, clean and detailedly shot and if its aesthetics hadn't grabbed you yet, then the unforgiving story will. It's slow in a great thrilling sense, that dropped the bomb with grace and horrid surprise. If you're a fan of crime thriller, you'll definitely love this.
Beautifully calm yet tragic, this poignant and honest drama about the life of a genius painter was intensely inspirational and saddening at the same time. Yolande Moreau captured Seraphine Louis with her superb performance, and the Cold War setting was enthralling and gave the film further depth.
Every thing's going well until they fed me up with --maybe--one of the most frustrating ending I've seen. The premise was intriguing, but the script was uneven and half-cooked, the drama doesn't make that much impact and there's no iconic scene whatsoever but I was willing to set the flaws aside for a good conclusion but I've been greatly disappointed.
Bloody, violent, and surprisingly superb remake of a classic. The characters were all well written, and the script didn't forget each and everyone of them. Compared to Battle: Los Angeles in which there are a lot of characters resulting to a chaotic shamble, Dawn of the Dawn let the characters rise in their own spot light that you'll not remember them just as the guy 1, guy 2, guy 3 because as I said, they were superbly scripted, acted, and strayed from one another. If the characterizations didn't amaze you, be sure to expect a lot of smart moves--especially the clever deaths and twists--and a vast chaos of blood seeking zombies that are unlike any other. They can run!
I withdrew after 30 seconds they started making jokes, that's how bad it was. The joke's are all too corny, all too stupid, and all too pathetic to even comprehend the reason behind the making of this anomaly of a film. It was so bad in every level that I'm embarrassed for the actors who'd shown their faces in this mirthless, pathetic, and abominable "spoof" that doesn't even pass as a spoof because a spoof supposed to re-create a film and turn it into a a funny one but this--I call this rape. This film just raped and disgraced the Kung-fu genre not spoofed it.
